Re: Official Serie A Thread

Give it 5 more years, and some more investment by other parties in clubs, and I'd say Serie A will be okay. Stars will leave as accustomed such as Silva, Ibra, Cavani, etc, but we just need more money in the league.

Also, It's crazy how Luis Enrique went from being a Roma manager to Barcelona's manager in the Champions League finals!

Re: Official Serie A Thread

Another season in Europe like Serie A sides had, and Premier League doing the same in Europe they just had, Serie A gets their 4th place CL spot back, which would be huge for Italian football.

Serie A will continue to sell the big players, but if they can keep scouting and finding players like they have been the last couple years, selling won't kill the teams. Unfortunately we're still in a state where only Juventus can keep their talents.

About Luis Enrique, as someone rightfully pointed out before around here, Luis Enrique is completely a Barca-style manager, which didnt really fit in the Italian football, and with the kind of players Roma had at the time.

Where as Barcelona is the perfect enviroment for L.E. to play the football he wants to play, which is ultimately the football Guardiola and the rest of the barca Academy played.

Re: Official Serie A Thread

LOL, yes , it's unfortunate with the capacity with how we keep talents but with talks of more financial investors, It'll only get better. Juventus is still a head above other teams in the league but its due to the fact, they've managed their team very well ever since the Serie B fiasco we all know of.

I also agree with your statement in terms of the scouting ability of some clubs in the Serie A. Our luck with alot of South American players has shown through in recent years.

Re: Official Serie A Thread

Frosinone joins Carpi in being promoted for the very first time in their club history to Serie A. Over 10000 fans (out of a region of just 46000 people) were their to witness the historic achievement. Frosinone only got their first ever promotion to Serie B 9 years ago, so it's a brilliant achievement.

It's thought that Bigon, De Laurentiis and Benitez had lunch together today, and that Benitez will not be staying is the rumour (great news). Sinisa Mihajlovic is largely expected to take over.

Re: Official Serie A Thread

Sassuolo beat Milan 3-2, Berardi hat-trick. Berardi put Sassuolo up 2-0 then Bonaventura and Alex brought it back to 2-2. Bonaventura got sent off for a 2nd yellow and Berardi scored to make it 3-2. Suso saw red late in the game as well.

Talks of Benitez leaving, also talks of Bigon getting an offer from Hellas Verona and Napoli are willing to let him go. Emery and Monchi are now thought to be Napoli's top replacements to fill in at Manager and Director.

Re: Official Serie A Thread

Fiorentina: Neto; Tomovic, Gonzalo, Savic, Pasqual,;Pizarro, Aquilani, Mati Fernandez; Ilicic, Salah, Gilardino

Fiorentina bench: Badelj, Tatarusanu, Kurtic, Joaquin, Diamanti, Basanta, Valero, Alonso, Rosati, Gomez, Bagadur, Rosi

Parma: Mirante; Feddal, Lucarelli, Mendes Gobbi; Mauri, Nocerino, Varela, Ghezzal Jorquera; Palladino

Parma bench: Bertozzi, Cassani, Prestia, Galloppa, Lodi, Iacobucci, Mariga, Haraslin, Broh Tonye, Esposito, Coda, Ravanelli

Parma's never say die attitude is fun to watch. Been the better side so far but Rodriguez scores for Fiorentina. 1-0

Gilardino with the header off a corner makes it 2-0 to Fiorentina.

First goal definitely killed the momentum.

Salah makes it 3-0. Fiorentina's attackers given far too much space. Parma have been awful bar a good 10 minutes in the first half at the start.

Re: Official Serie A Thread

Napoli: Andujar; Mesto, Albiol, Koulibaly, Ghoulam; David Lopez, Jorginho; Callejon, Hamsik, Mertens; Gabbiadini

Napoli bench: Barbosa, Strinic, Henrique, Britos, Higuain, Maggio, Colombo, Insigne, Gargano, Inler, Zapata

Cesena: Agliardi; Volta, Capelli, Krajnc, Renzetti; Tabanelli, De Feudis, Cascione; Carbonero, Brienza, Defrel

Cesena bench: Leali, Nica, Lucchini, Rodriguez, Djuric, Succi, Perico, Dal Monte, Cazzola, Ze Eduardo, Bressan

Higuain's recent unimpressive run has him dropped for Gabbiadini up front. Last gasp chance for any hopes of CL football next season.

Koulibaly and Albiol are two of the worst CB's I've seen. Defrel makes it 1-0.

Callejon with a shot, deflected through, Mertens gets on the end and makes it 1-1.

Gabbiadini makes it 2-1 after Mertens destroys the Cesena defense and low cross that Gabbiadini slots home.

Defrel is class, but this defense is pathetic. Absolutely awful. 2-2.

I'd think so. Too good not to move on to a regular Serie A side. He confirmed today after the game he was staying in Serie A. He also confirmed Palermo's interest, but as usual claims he's only looking forward to finishing out the season strong.

Re: Official Serie A Thread

Rumours of the day:

Vidal set to reject a move to the Prem, interest of United, as he looks to stay at Juventus, possibly for the rest of his career.

Benitez has rejected a move to West Ham and has received interest from Real Madrid to replace Ancelotti. Good luck to Madrid.

Juventus have made contact with Torino for Darmian. They're also reportedly close to signing Cavani.

Bournemouth's Eddie Howe has been in Italy today, studying Sarri's methods of training in hopes to better Bournemouth in staying up. No better manager currently better to study than Sarri.

Glik's in no hurry to leave Torino and confirms no offers yet. Manchester United are thought to be interested (which I have doubts).

Milan are set to sign Mauri from Parma.

Ferraro, the crazy guy he is, claims Mihajlovic will stay at Sampdoria because he's in love with Ferraro. Also confirms he's called Balotelli about a move back to Italy.

Re: Official Serie A Thread

Lazio have been very good in center of the field, especially Candareva and Cataldi

But they have been pretty wasteful, too many wild long shot from distance, their forward have been isolated entire match with no supply coming from midfield, both Klose and that young kid.

Just need one clear cut chance I believe to shake things up.

Re: Official Serie A Thread

Higuain's father confirms his son will be staying at Napoli over the summer.

Benitez's agent says for the time being, Madrid rumour is just a rumour and he's more focused on the upcoming games. But then his agent said a month ago he was extending within a week and that was a lie so I don't think he even knows what's going on.

It's claimed Sky Germany believes Reina is close to signing for Napoli, although unknown if its contingent on Benitez being here.

Khedira is set to make a move to Juventus.

Vidal linked with Liverpool and Arsenal now, after confirming he'll stay at Juventus for the rest of his career. Pool have no chance, Arsenal slim but Vidal will stay.

Marotta confirms Dyabala deal, also claims Cavani's an unrealistic target.

Roma are looking at Atalanta goal keeper Sportiello and Marseille for Mandanda.

Inter are thought to be close to signing Parma goal keeper Mirante to replace Handanovic.

Re: Official Serie A Thread

So it seems Benitez is leaving and Higuain's unhappy, yelling at players and gets jeered by fans with poor performances. Although not much he can do with the garbage behind him. Seems he wants a return to Spain and is likely to replace Mandzukic at Atletico.

Mihajlovic is thought to be his replacement, and his first wish is Jovetic. Who I'd love to see back in Serie A. Also linked to Vertonghen and Miranda, who are huge step ups to Koulibaly and Albiol.

Glik and Bruno Peres have confirmed today they aren't interested in leaving Torino today.

Milan are thought to have agreed a pre-contract with Emery, however Galliani confirms he's going to Madrid, though it's thought not to be for Ancelotti. Possibly looking at Manduzkic. Also thought to be interested in Jackson Martinez.

Milan and Fiorentina are looking at signing Southampton striker, Pelle.
