Italian Serie A News, Results, Analysis and Features on Football Soccer

serieaweekly morning news

Here we go again with Serie A Weekly giving you a list of five stories to read this lunchtime that we have seen from around the web and enjoyed ourselves. Many of these will be about Italian football of course but there is always room for something different and those will be here too. Take a look at our recommendations, pass them on and be sure to leave a comment on these great articles. See you at the same time tomorrow for more of the same!

First up today a staple of our week, Paolo Bandini’s regular column for Canada’s The Score network. Always thought-provoking and topical, this week he looks at the rise and fall of Davide Santon here

Another Wednesday regular is our very own Adam Digby’s Al Volo column for the excellent backpagefootball.com. His latest piece highlights the self-inflicted plight of Sampdoria. Read it here

Most of us would reply with a quick ‘no’ to the question “Can Shaktar Donetsk Beat Barcelona?” but then most of us aren’t Jonathan Wilson. Read his far more studied answer for The Guardian here

Friend of Serie A Weekly James Horncastle wrote a fantastic piece looking back at Schalke’s win on penalties over Roy Hodgson’s Inter in the 1997 UEFA Cup Final. Read it on FourFourTwo.com here

Lastly for today InBedWithMaradona does a wonderful job promoting lesser known leagues and players and a new article there, by Yeon Sik Yoo, looks at Schalke forward Edu’s time in Suwon here
