by Niccolo Conte on January 6, 2011 · 0 comments

The Serie A will be resum­ing tomor­row, when a fresh slate of mid­week games will be played. There are many inter­est­ing fix­tures, but the one which I’m really look­ing for­ward to is Cagliari — AC Milan. AC Milan coach Mas­si­m­il­iano Alle­gri will be return­ing to his for­mer club at the Sta­dio Sant’Elia, and he’ll be […]

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 […]

In this pre­view of the upcom­ing Serie A matches, I’ll be look­ing at the inter­est­ing matches, and the two teams which recently got new coaches, Genoa and Cagliari.

Milan and Roma Humiliated as Inter Milan Rise

by Niccolo Conte on September 12, 2010 · 2 comments

An extremely inter­est­ing few games were played out, and they show a few things about the team which might win the scud­etto. Inter Milan, Roma, and AC Milan all played out their sec­ond match-day games, and while the ner­az­zurri won, the other two title con­tenders lost. Inter Milan didn’t have too much dif­fi­culty against Udinese, […]


Italy’s old­est soc­cer club fin­ished a dis­ap­point­ing ninth last sea­son, and the man­age­ment has made it clear this off­sea­son that such a result is unac­cept­able.  Dis­ap­point­ing play by a num­ber of key play­ers left the club out­side the top six, one year after qual­i­fy­ing for the UEFA Cup and two years after return­ing to Serie A […]
