AC Milan Without Limits After Derby Victory

by Niccolo Conte on April 3, 2011 · 0 comments

There’s lit­tle to write about regard­ing the scud­etto race of the Serie A now. A com­mand­ing 3–0 win by AC Milan over Inter has seem­ingly decided that this sea­son we will have a new cham­pion. The scud­etto is now for Milan to lose, and after the solid dis­play the rossoneri put on for the San […]


The cur­rent Serie A sea­son has seen a trio of clubs com­pete for the Scud­etto with Milan ahead by a small mar­gin over Inter and Napoli respec­tively. The Milan-Inter show­down, set after the inter­na­tional break, will deter­mine to a large extent the direc­tion of the title. From an indi­vid­ual stand­point, there have been very few […]

Italy’s elite clubs are strug­gling in the Cham­pi­ons League and have strug­gled since 2000 despite two tro­phies won by Milan and one by Inter in the last decade. Ital­ian clubs were the dom­i­nant force in the 1990s with Milan and Juven­tus win­ning the Cham­pi­ons League with Juve reached  three con­sec­u­tive finals. Ital­ian clubs were also a force […]

Udinese Have No Fear Under Guidolin

by Niccolo Conte on January 23, 2011 · 0 comments

When Francesco Guidolin left Parma to man­age Udi­nese, I was dis­ap­pointed. Guidolin had united a set of strong indi­vid­u­als, man­ag­ing Parma all the way up to eighth in the table last sea­son. Udi­nese fin­ished 15th this past sea­son, yet Guidolin saw some­thing in the club and decided to join them. After a dis­ap­point­ing start of four […]

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 […]
