  1. Re: The Best Of The Century Man Utd kicked off the new season in style with a derby day win. A 2-1 home win against bitter rivals Man City Rooney with the winner and boy did he do it in style A tough away game to the mighty Chelsea Man utd coming away with an impressive 2-1 victory Fellaini controlled & bullied the midfield from start to finnish A tricky away trip to Dortmund. Both clubs with a 100% record. A well deserved win for Dortmund. Man Utd losing 2-1 on the day Nani see's red and takes an early bath

  4. Re: US Lecce - 370 Rise To The Top Flight It looks like Kitanov poor performances have not gone un-noticed by Mackem. Cristian Bonilla has joined Mackems men from Nacional A reported deal worth 1.5 million with Perucchini & Papinimoving to the Uruguayan club Bonilla adds some competition for the number 1 shirt
  5. Re: US Lecce - 370 Rise To The Top Flight Nocerina 2-2 US Lecce It only takes a minute to switch off to give the opposition time to take advantage & that is what excalty happened Things started off bright when Promes crossed the ball into the danger area for Zivkovic to head home from close range on the 12 min The lead only lasted 3 mins when paz was one on one with the keeper & he brought him down in the area.A yellow card for Kitanov which he was lucky not see red. De Franco smashed the ball home straight down the middle while the keeper flapped to the left. Kitanov had a nightmare for Lecce between the sticks today Order was restored when on the 20 min Honer whipped in a cross into the 18 yard box for Giva to half volley into the back of the net must be in the top 5 for goal of the month without a doubt It was looking if Leece where going home with all 3 points until Kitanov was caught in no-mans land & Paz done a cheeky little chip over him to nessle into the back of the net All smiles by Giva as he puts in MOTH performance A sound performance from Lecce but with only 6 points from 6 games things can only get better Blame can solely be put in Kitanoov hands(if he can keep hold of it).His two clangers cost Mackem 2 valuable points today
  6. Re: US Lecce - 370 Rise To The Top Flight Face To Face Mental Mackem ''Money makes things easier....but you still need to know how to spend it'' After Franco Lerda's departure what made you take the postion Simple! Paulo Dicano,after getting my coaching license & working with Paulo at Sunderland.when the offer came from Lecce & all the good things from Paulo about Italy it was a no brainer. How are you settling in at Leece? The language barrier is a problem but i'm going to classes & things are getting better.The club itself is fantastic & everybody is behind me 100% You sold the clubs best 2 players,what was the thinking behind this First off the 2 players in question where running the show! simple as that.player power does not happen here,secondly ''cash'' i needed the money to rebuild the squad. 25 transfers in & counting,all young players why? We are in division 3 & need to build for the future.If we stay here for a season or 2 so be it.(laughing) Rome was not built in a day,sorry for the pun. 5 games & only 5 points.Also losing in the cup in the first round.Results have not being your way.What is needed to improve your position Well scoring more goals than our opponents will help.The cup is just an distraction for me so losing was no biggy. Players need more time to adapt including myself but im confident that we'll do well Fans have mixed reviews about you,how will you get the doubters on your side. I'm not going to even try!! fans are fickle.One day there love you the next you have death threats & poison pen letters(laughing). No i'll let the results do the talking Interview by Luca De Rossi
  7. Re: US Lecce - 370 Rise To The Top Flight US Lecce 1-1 Albinoleffe A record attendance of 11,079 turned out to witness another short coming by Mackems Leece. Things went to plan on the 14 min when Ramirez put them ahead with a simple tap in when the keeper fumbled. The lead lasted until the 35 min when Cisse netted for the away side. Lecce's midfield looking out of sorts with no gusto to make that killer pass for the forwards. All credit to the fans their made some noise untill the final whistle but there loyalty with be tested if results don't go they way in the coming months
  8. Re: US Lecce - 370 Rise To The Top Flight League Game AC Perugia 1-2 US Lecce 3,827 fans witnessed a second half display of pure football magic. things took a while to get going,the first half saw Perugia take a 5 minute lead when Mazzeo lost his marker & slot home a wonderful side footed curve shot into the bottom left hand corner. I don't know what went on in the dressing room but Lecce came out all guns blazing. Makhstaliev was on a mission with a great solo run to smash the ball into the back of the net with no mercy. MOTH Mackhstaliev was on fire for Lecce today Leece ran the show from then & where unlucky not to find themsleves on the score sheet a few times then another new signing Ajayi saw an opening 30 yards out to hit a scorcher on the 71 minute The one that caught my eye was french Jessy Pi a free agent from AS Monaco,his two assits was just great with an eye for a good pass An impressive debut for young Pi A good result today but nowhere near out of the woods for Mackems side. this result will leave my fans hoping the tide is about to change
  9. Re: US Lecce - 370 Rise To The Top Flight Italian Shield Round 1 Frosinone 0-0 US Lecce Frosinone win 4-1 on pens Less said about this game the better. Both sides looked uninterested & what little action their was would only last about 5 minutes Mackem was caught more than once with his phone,most probably playing angry birds Fans seem to be getting a bit frustrated with Mackems lack of drive with himself & players on & off the field. Mackem leaving to pounder what he need to do to turn things around
  10. Re: US Lecce - 370 Rise To The Top Flight Breaking News US Lecce have signed Sandro Ramirez The club fought off the likes of Schalke & Inter Milan Ramirez signs a 4 year contract with 3rd div Lecce This wonderful signing may take some pressure off under fire Mackem A reported 3mill was payed for his signature
  11. Re: US Lecce - 370 Rise To The Top Flight League Game US Latina Calcio 3-2 US Lecce Cracks are already being to show with Mackem Still looking for their first league win & failing with another good performance,yet failing to hold on a lead. Eghan cant believe his look after putting his side ahead after the first minute Eghanwas at the right time at the right place with a simple over the top witch the defence could not handle Second half saw Zielinski slot home from close rannge to take them 2-0 up on the 50 min things went pear shaped when Rullo got sent off for a second bookable offence Lantina took advantage with goals fromJonahas & a brace from Brosco to kill off any fight back
  12. Re: US Lecce - 370 Rise To The Top Flight League Game US Lecce 1-3 Portogruaro Suhmaga Over 10,00 turned out to see US Lecce be humbled by a team that is looking for the wooden spoon this season Eghan on loan from FC Twente opened the scoring with a wonderful chip over the keeper on 15 mins Herzan got himself a brace while Cunnico put the nail in the coffin with a wonder strike on 84 mins Walsh for US Lecce got sent off by head-butting Pavil on the 70min Eghan was the shining gem in a dull team
  13. Re: US Lecce - 370 Rise To The Top Flight League Game US Catanzaro 2-2 US Lecce A crowd of 2,376 saw this in-counter which saw Caprari & Russotto seal the show. A brace a piece was enough for both sides to be happy with. Mackems side was soiled enough for their opening game with enough chances to win but never looked threatening enough Caprari over the moon with his brace
  14. Re: US Lecce - 370 Rise To The Top Flight New manager Mackem wasted no time in re-shaping US Lecce. 11 players have been confirmed leaving the club. 3 big boys Miccoli to Atalanta Lopez to Arezzo & Martinez to Lanciano. with a total value of £14.9million Many supporters see this as the beginning of the end of any title lifting season for the club. On the other side of the coin US Leece have brought in some good talent which many think are too young to cope with the pressure of bringing any silverware to the club 13 players in total have joined Mackems ranks. Two of note is Tielemans from Anderlecht 2.4m & Kverkvelia from Rubin 1.6 Also loan deals for Roma's Caprari & Udisese's Zielinski Jury is still out with Mackem to see if he can deliver success at US Lecce,judging by the crop of players he has brought in. mid table prediction
