  1. Re: Riferimento: Re: The Official Serie A Thread Siena vs Milan was the epitome of why Serie A is dwindling. I would not complain about losing the CL spot to Milan when we could have done better to make sure we were on top of them. But the fact remains that they have some referees who really crumble under pressure when in fact the only requirement of a referee or a judge or anybody who makes a ruling is to be cool headed. Bergonzi messed up that fixture full stop. Milan did not deserve to beat Siena the way they played full stop. I do root for everything Italian when it comes to football. Hell I was biting my fingers when Balotelli scored against the Germans in the Euros. We all forgive his idiocy time and again expecting the likes of him to spearhead the Serie A back to the top of the game. But yesterday was a victory of scam over football when you see Balotelli the tough guy falling at every minor contact. Football is a contact sport after all. Then when things became desperate you start seeing men crack like little boys, whining and diving as if newborns cry for their mother's breast. I do not single out Balotelli since he was joined by many of his teammates in their effort to coy with Bergonzi. The whole thing just seems like scripted. Even the De Rossi handball and the fact that someone has the audacity to do that and get away with it not even off-field punishments. Wherever there is lack of fairness, crooks and lesser men flourish as opposed to real talent. No surprise Italy has 3 spots in the CL. I would not even be surprised if in 5 year's time they have only 2 spots in CL. That is because we will see this Milan side make a fool of itself in CL where there are no Bergonzis and Tagliaventos refereeing next year. Then Fiorentina and Udinese will of course play second string sides in Europa League where we get nothing in way of financial reward anyway. The vicious circle should be followed by further drop in the coefficient. Look at how the French and Portuguese clubs are faring. Then there will be a point where Italy will be relegated to a third tier European league status. Maybe that is where it should be, given the state of its economy and the attitude towards fairness. Racism is only the tip of the iceberg. If you are made to feel less because someone else abused you racially like Balotelli, KPB and many other footballers do, you do accept that you are a lesser mortal deep down. By the same logic, maybe you should be abused after all.

  3. Re: The Official Serie A Thread Well Roma should have beat Milan one man up, after getting a scrappy win over us helped by the referee too. De Rossi acting up a lot these days. Seems every game he has to mess something up. If you can't beat Milan when one man up, you deserve 7th place.
  4. Re: Buy, Sell or Keep Thread? Suarez or Aguero or Higuain? Marchisio or Khedira? Eriksen or Wilshere? I am leaning Suarez, Marchisio and Wilshere, need opinions
  5. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... I have to let one go from these: Benzema Aguero Cavani The deal would be part exchange for Messi, which was offered to me anyway. I am inclined to let go Benzema. What do others think?
  6. Re: Buy, Sell or Keep Thread? Should I buy Mandanda or Weidenfeller? Both available for cash. All younger prospects in the range 89-90 already snapped up.
  7. Re: Buy, Sell or Keep Thread? The reason I included Hernandez there is because I have Neymar, Balotelli and Pato to cover for him. Hard to decide between him and Afellay now that Chicharito isn't a regular.
  8. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... I need to sell two, not one. Gourcuff seems obvious. Now the other one is the dilemma. Personally I don't rate Young that much, but Afellay hasn't accomplished much either in big leagues. As for Hernandez, I might be willing to sell simply because I have Neymar and Balotelli besides Pato.
  9. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Have to sell to of the following due to player concerns: Ashley Young Yoann Gourcuff Ibrahim Afellay Javier Hernandez Which 2 to sell?

  11. Re: Serie A Rating Predictions 2012/13 Why on earth would Roncaglia, Facundo fall? He's the starting defender for a Fiorentina side equipped to chase after European spots. Makes no sense.
  12. Re: Serie A Ratings Changes 2011-12 (II) What the hell is gonna happen to Thiago Silva's rating now that he moved? Also, Borini or Destro?
  13. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Muller or Sneijder? Benzema or Aguero?
  14. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Give Chicharito for Papiss Cisse?
  15. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Should I take Muller by giving away one of Nasri, Hazard or Gotze? Got Ozil too so I am all set in the position. But looking at long-term prospects I'm debating if Muller could be better than one of my players. Maybe Nasri?
