Moves To Expect This January Transfer Market

by Niccolo Conte on January 1, 2011 · 0 comments

With a new year upon us, the Jan­u­ary trans­fer win­dow will be open­ing up soon. While nor­mally we don’t see super-stars switch alle­giances in this period, but 2011 could be dif­fer­ent. The names of Klose, Toni, Gilardino, and Kaka have been cir­cu­lat­ing, but can we really expect these play­ers to move in Jan­u­ary? Start­ing at […]


2011: A New Start For Italian Football

by Niccolo Conte on December 31, 2010 · 3 comments

2010 was a bad year for Ital­ian foot­ball. I tried to think of the pos­i­tives, but very few came to mind. A dis­as­trous World Cup in South Africa, a bad show­ing in the Europa League, and only a Cham­pi­ons League vic­tory (guided by a Por­tuguese mas­ter­mind) which retains some dig­nity for Ital­ian foot­ball. While 2010 […]


Inter Replaces Rafa With Leonardo

by Niccolo Conte on December 24, 2010 · 0 comments

Finally this power strug­gle is over. It was inevitable that the Spaniard was not going to get any­thing from Mas­simo Moratti for this Jan­u­ary trans­fer win­dow, and Moratti got fed up with Benitez’s strange demands. It all seemed slightly bet­ter when Rafa Ben­itez had guided his team to the World Club Cup title, but after […]


Borriello Punishes AC Milan At The San Siro

by Niccolo Conte on December 19, 2010 · 5 comments

Season’s have their turn­ing points, and I have a feel­ing that today was a cru­cial one. We saw Inter Milan rise back to form with a 3–0 win over TP Mazembe in the FIFA World Club Cup final, and we saw AC Milan fall to Roma at the San Siro, 1–0 for the gial­lorossi thanks […]


Tough Draw In Europe For Italian Teams

by Niccolo Conte on December 18, 2010 · 2 comments

With the Cham­pi­ons League and Europa League draws hav­ing taken place, the rest of the sea­son is slowly drift­ing into a more pre­dictable mush. There’s just one last week­end of Serie A action (this week­end), and then there’s a solid two weeks and a bit of break from the Serie A. I cer­tainly find it […]


Roma Through To The Champions League Knockout Stages

by Niccolo Conte on December 10, 2010 · 0 comments

It’s good to know that there will be three sides from the Serie A in the Cham­pi­ons League round of 16 rep­re­sent­ing Italy. While AC Milan and Inter Milan had already secured their qual­i­fi­ca­tion math­e­mat­i­cally for the knock­out stages of the tour­na­ment, there was still a doubt whether Roma would man­age to get the needed […]


Inter Humiliated By Bremen With 3–0 Loss

by Niccolo Conte on December 7, 2010 · 4 comments

Although Rafa Benitez’s Inter has qual­i­fied for the knock­out stages of the Cham­pi­ons League in the same posi­tion that Mourinho’s did a sea­son ago, things look very dif­fer­ent for the Spaniard. This is after their 3–0 loss away against Werder Bre­men, and Benitez’s team played poorly. With this lat­est loss, Ben­itez has racked up seven […]
