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 […]

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 […]

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. Regard­ing Italy’s game against Roma­nia, I was unable to watch it, and there­fore I didn’t write a match report. The match fin­ished 1–1, with Mar­ica scor­ing against […]

Things have been shaken up this week­end, mostly thanks to Roma. And although the gial­lorossi won 1–0 against Inter Milan, they’re still down at the bot­tom of the table in 18th place, while Inter is at the very top of the table shar­ing first with Lazio. While this last-gasp win might help Roma gain a […]

Inter Milan didn’t have too much dif­fi­culty against Udinese, […]
