Rome draws at home and Inter wins on the road that sounds like game, set, match !Congratulations Inter Milan as the Nerazzurri increased their lead over Roma to six-points in the league race. Although Inter Milan still have to play the second leg of the Milan derby, I can’t see them losing the title now since their other remaining matches are against relegation candidates Cagliari, Seina, Parma. As for Roma, has the white towel been thrown? The Romanista have but […]

With five match days left and 15 points to play for, have you looked at the table lately? Fans hear or read the word relegation and surely visualize three, yet looking at the current Serie A table that number should be ten. There is a log-jam of teams below and even Napoli in 9th on 43 points, is not yet mathematically safe from relegation. Teams like Cagliari, Seina and Reggina have all been clawing their way up the table and […]

Silvio Berlusconi owner of AC Milan football club, wins the Italian election giving the conservative leader a third chance and a strong mandate to lift Italy’s ailing economy, but he faces a daunting task. Plagued by criminal trials, conflict-of-interest accusations and headline-making gaffes during two previous stints as prime minister he defied public opinion by sending troops to Iraq and passing laws that critics say kept him out of jail. And yet the flamboyant billionaire pulled it off with a […]

The Old Lady (Juventus) did the number on AC Milan winning 3 - 2 and Del Piero as the most in form player in Serie A does seem to be the man of the moment indeed. The following is a game review from a fellow blogger, Mehdi at soccer-europe.com, I regularly discuss Serie A news on the World Soccer Daily chatboard. Juve took the lead with a wonderfully worked move. Salihamidzic hit a pass into Trezeguet and the Frenchman flicked […]

Matchday 33 looks to have quite a few close runs, about to happen. I’m staying away from the big matches, Udinese vs. Roma, Juventus vs. Milan, Inter vs. Fiorentina, Catania vs. Palermo etc. However, what does catch my eye, Lazio vs. Siena Lazio have really turned things around at the Stadio Olimpico with a home record of 8-3-5. Back in January I wrote an article on the return of Bianci to Italian calcio and at that time Lazio was 3-2-5 […]

There is a must win clash at the top of the table this weekend, when AC Milan travel to Juventus. Milan are desperate for the points to try and catch up the top four, while Juventus are attempting to catch up the top two. Can the Rossoneri get the win they need? Or will the Old Lady prove too strong? Claudio Ranieri (pictured) is playing down the old rivalry by claiming his focus is on Juventus’ overall campaign, rather than […]

Champions League Action: Roma vs. ManUnited 0 - 2 After the midweek crash and burn by Roma at Stadio Olimpico I’ve lost desire to write any previews. Truly Manchester United have Ronaldo and Van der Sar to thank for their victory, as the performance of the rest of the squad was mediocre. The Roman Gladiators definitely missed their playmaker and captain Franscesco Totti who was injured playing against Cagliari match day 31. The quarter final 2nd leg is next week […]
