Roma were so sweet last night. Gervinho causing havoc (in a good way). Totti strolling around running tings. Just the one goal conceded which as someone who saw them play under Zeman I find frankly unbelievable. Rudy Garcia ot 'em purring.

Juve-AC Milan tonight, and Napoli on right now but I've already watched 2 games today so might give it a miss.

I always rated him and thought he could go on to really big things. He might yet.

Not that Roma aren't a big enough thing; I mean more that he could potentially fit in fine at a CL contender, whether Roma or otherwise.

Nov 10 (Reuters) - An Italian third-tier match was called off on Sunday after visiting side Nocerina, having allegedly received death threats from their own fans, were reduced to six men by injuries after only 21 minutes.
The southern derby match at Salernitana had begun 40 minutes late and Nocerina made their three permitted substitutions in the first two minutes.
Over the next 20 minutes, five players went off injured, leaving the team with six players, below the minimum needed to continue the game.

He is a veritable beast on the new FM, and has an admirably spartan wiki page for such a highly rated talent. Still don't really have any understanding of how the co-ownership system in Italy operates

Windsor Davies, Sunday, 12 January 2014 21:27 (five years ago) link

Thanks, those have cleared things up a bit. Would be interested to see some sort of mid-long term analysis of how this plays out for the various parties compared to the system in place in the EPL. Seems like there might be money in it for smaller teams when big clubs take a small punt on a talented player that may not make the grade, but at the expense of denying them the big pay-day that smaller EPL clubs pick up when their stars are acquired by the top teams.

Inter have pulled the plug on a proposed swap deal with Juventus involving Fredy Guarin and Mirko Vucinic because of a backlash from fans - but it could yet be resurrected.

r|t|c, Monday, 20 January 2014 19:15 (five years ago) link

such a classic example of numinous immanence in fitba, like no matter who's in charge over the generations inter will always and forever be guided by the spirit of magically inept transfers

r|t|c, Monday, 20 January 2014 19:19 (five years ago) link

Now, according to Sky Sport Italia, Guarin is looking to push the move through and is refusing to leave Juventus’ offices in the hope that Inter will reconsider and allow him to join the Serie A champions.

It is also thought the Colombian has threatened to refuse to train with Inter should the move collaps

All four early kick-offs ended 2-2. You could have got odds of about 70,000 to 1 on that. It being Italy, I wouldn't be shocked if someone did.

Napoli 2-0. If it stays like this Juve will be 10 points behind Inter, having played one game more.

Seems absurd that Juve should be back in this at all after the start they had but it's difficult to see anyone stopping them from this point on.

anyone gonna be watching this season? i've not paid much attention since i moved back to the UK but i wanna rectify that, seems like things could be heating up at long long last.

watching the Milan game against Cagliari now, the young lad Cutrone just gave Milan the lead converting from a nice Suso delivery - 2nd goal this season having scored one, assisted one and won a penalty in the 3-0 win over Crotone last week. had never heard of him before that. Kalinic and Andre Silva not getting a look in yet. Milan look very exciting this season, so much depth in the squad now. could this be the year?!

all the talk this summer has been about Milan but it's Inter who've put in the most eye-catching performance so far - they came back from 1-0 down to win 3-1 away at Roma last night - Icardi banging in 4 goals in the first 2 games. their transfer window obviously hasn't been eye-catching like Milan's but Borja Valero is a quality signing and Spalletti is a great managerial appointment. big advantage they have on the competition this time is there's no Europe for them again this season. i love Mauro Icardi.

loads of pundits tipping this to be Napoli's season but they haven't really done anything to speak of during the summer and they're currently makin a balls of it at home to Atalanta.

meanwhile Dybala is looking on it and keeps doing stuff like this (his hat-trick goal in a 4-2 win)

https://streamable.com/9esl7

Juve have once again been bringing in players by the bucketload (Bernadeschi, Douglas Costa, Matuidi, De Sciglio) and still have by far the best team and deepest squad in the division and will definitely win the league. unless they don't.

whatever, come one come all, can't say how long the feeling will last but it seems like Serie A might finally be getting slightly more competitive again

Windsor Davies, Sunday, 27 August 2017 19:33 (two years ago) link

watched Inter's first game against Fiorentina the other day and was delighted to see Jordan Veretout and Carlos Sanchez looking something less than useful in the Fiorentina midfield. clearly wasn't just a personal thing against Villa :)

Benevento vs Milan is pretty interesting. It’s Gattuso’s first match as Milan manager, Benevento’s record before today was Played 14, Lost 14. Benevento have just equalised.
