Five Things To Note From Serie A This Weekend

by Niccolo Conte on January 10, 2011 · 6 comments

It had been a long time that the Serie A wasn’t as inter­est­ing as it is now. The vac­uum left by Inter’s down­fall  was filled with a tem­pes­tu­ous AC Milan which is now begin­ning to slow down. Along with AC Milan, Juven­tus have also begun to lose their knack of outscor­ing their oppo­nents, espe­cially notice­able in their 3–0 loss to […]


Federico Macheda Could Play Against Roma

by Niccolo Conte on January 8, 2011 · 0 comments

While one of the biggest moves of the Jan­u­ary trans­fer win­dow hap­pened recently, with Toni going to Juven­tus, there have been plenty of other, qui­eter moves which have gone unmen­tioned. Mostly they are young, aspir­ing Ital­ians join­ing clubs on loan so that they can get some play­ing time to improve. Fed­erico Macheda from Man­ches­ter United […]


Moves To Expect This January Transfer Market

by Niccolo Conte on January 1, 2011 · 2 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 […]


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 […]


Five Things To Note From Serie A This Weekend

1. Juven­tus in sec­ond after 2–1 win over Lazio A fan­tas­tic match between two sides which bat­tled for the win. Juven­tus took the lead in the first min­utes with Chiellini pow­er­ing his way through a weak Lazio defence on a cor­ner, head­ing in a tem­po­rary lead for the bian­coneri. But Lazio fought back, and about fifteen […]
