Milan Derby: Return Of The Champions Milan 0-4 Inter

Posted by Kevin Walker Sunday, August 30, 2021
Oh my oh my the champions Inter are playing like champions.

After drawing on opening day to newly promoted Bari, the Nerazzurri crank out a stunning 4 goal performance against city rivals Milan, with Julio Cesar claiming a clean sheet, as AC Milan are incapable of putting anything past the Inter keeper. Gennaro Gattuso was sent off 5 minutes before the half for a foul on Samuel Eto'o leading to a second Inter goal by import and new boy Diego Milito from the penalty spot. The new faces of Motta, Eto'o, Milito, and Sneijder all played their part in this mauling of Milan.

I am left wondering, who is truly black and blue from this encounter?

Chris Nee from twofootedtackle had this to say, "on the stroke of half time, it really was game over. Inter were irresistable up the right wing and Milito played a lovely one-two to provide Douglas Maicon with a simple but exhilarating finish to put the match to bed before the break."

Inter President Massimo Moratti after the match, “It was such a great game! It was a battle in the first 20 minutes, then we dominated thanks to a fantastic style of football."

When asked on newly arrived Wesley Sneijder Moratti said, “It is incredible how he immediately settled into the squad and showed such character in a very important game.”

Milan's Leonardo Meets The Press

Posted by Kevin Walker Saturday, August 29, 2021
Passione - On the eve of the derby and after the draw for the Champions League, Leonardo was delivered today to the traditional press conference before the weekend matchday:

About the draw for the Champions League Group stage: "This will be of great emotions, especially the meeting with Real Madrid in the Champions League. We will play against a team that spent much, but we must not lose sight of the other two teams, namely Marseille is evolving and is a team that makes beautiful things in the Champions League, then FC Zurich is that we know ... For now it's better to think of the derby. "

About the derby: "It's a derby, which happens very early, I think this is the first time he played during the second day. The concentration does not change, because it's an important moment. This game when it happens it happens and from the can continue with good melody. The journey we have made so far gives us confidence for this game. There have been many developments in recent days. We compete against a team who won for the last 4 years. For that it is impossible to have no motivation. The victory is the consequences of so many things. We are changing and it shows on the field. I think the way we behave, we can obtain good results. And it is on this that we must build. "

About the formation of the Inter: "Maybe that Inter has more certainty, they have had years of supremacy, or they have dominated the championship. There were physical force base. Regarding us, we just slowed down in recent years in Italy and now we try again with a new type of game If you think a favorite is normal to think about Inter. I do not think it is a derby poorer because the Derby is the Derby even without Kaka and Ibra will be a great game. The thing that concerns me most today is the module that they will use. They have very many possibilities to put the players as they want. It is an unpredictable team. With Zanetti, Santon, Stankovic, Balotelli, basically all the players can have a different role. From our side I do not think our area is the low side. Our game was beginning to be offensive with 3 forwards and 3 midfield. Then things changed for various reasons and we returned to our module, which is our trademark. We must rely on ourselves and our mechanisms. When Milan and Inter clash anything can happen. I do not know how they play, they have so many options. And Mourinho also changes a lot during games. They have so many alternatives and it is important to know they can use. "

"If I say I have not thought about that tomorrow night we could have 5 points, I tell a lie. It is still early to tell. Continuity is very important in Italy's match tomorrow is just one step in a long journey. I must say that in football today it has also become important to win when playing badly. Inter are changing skin, especially through Ibrahimovic helped them last year to bring forward a lot of balloons. Now they are changing in this way. By cons I think that Milan has always been the team with the mentality elegant, with the possibility to run the ball and it must always remain our philosophy. "

About the coaching profession: "The hardest part is when we must make choices, especially when you see the application for everyone. The most important things is having good response from the players. What I am trying to do is to have stability and fairness in reporting, although I know they do not always understand me. The report sincere and direct I find essential. Organization, attention and concentration are the characteristics I want to see as cons Siena. It was a positive match. Now we play at home to our audience and there must be something more. The period of the transfer window is closed. Now it is time player. I would also say that I still have doubts. At any time of day I try to understand my interlocutors. There are still 90% security and 10% of doubts. It is also a way to evolve. "

Before concluding, Leonardo wanted to talk about some specific player, Ronaldinho, Flamini and Huntelaar:

"Ronaldinho has participated in all training this week. Not only him but the whole team. Whether the physical level as well as tactical training.

Huntelaar could not play at Siena because of a suspension. He is a player with an important technique and with intelligence. He has power and incredible accuracy. He is very strong penalty area.

Flamini has played as a fullback and he can do it again. He has the physical and athletic characteristics that allow it to do. Today he's fine, it was a great preparation and a very good game to Siena, I'm happy. "

Ronaldinho Sparks Milan Resurgence

Posted by David Schiavone Thursday, August 27, 2021
As AC Milan took to the field against Siena, many including myself were waiting for the wheels to fall off the Rossoneri bandwagon. In the run up to the new season Milan managed a magnificent run of seven games without victory, until solace came in the form of the Trofeo Berlusconi, a victory over Juventus was much enjoyed.

Thus, it seemed Milan were doomed to another season of underachievement, players left, notably Kaka and Gourcuff. Paolo Maldini retired, Carlo Ancelotti moved on, so a new dawn is certainly on the horizon and it falls on the shoulders of rookie coach Leonardo to resurrect the failing Milan giants.

Going into the opening fixture with Siena, Milan were given a relatively straight forward task of beating a team that will almost certainly be battling against relegation in the coming season. Leonardo started Ronaldinho as a trequartista playing behind Pato and Marco Borriello. Thiago Silva made his Serie A debut alongside the returning Alessandro Nesta.

During the match Ronaldinho’s passing was sublime, his eye for the killer pass has not gone, as shown by his involvement in Milan’s two goals, he revelled in having the freedom to demonstrate his limitless technical attributes. One negative would be his lack of movement, he is still overweight, but after promising his teammates he will be a ‘better professional’ I’m sure he can and will return to something like full fitness.

Pato was another of the star performers on the night, bagging a brace, whilst also getting under the skin of the Robur, leading to a final whistle fracas apparently due to his ‘lack of respect’, this according to Siena Captain Simone Vergassola. This apart, Pato demonstrated ability beyond his years, he has pace, samba skills and an eye for goal, plus the added incentive of a place in Dunga’s 2010 World Cup squad, a fantastic season will surely be had by the Duck.

Thiago Silva and Nesta were both solid against Siena. Silva showing his cool head and passing ability from the back, Nesta his organisation and reading of the game, this could be key to Milan's season. If both stay fit - when I say ‘both’, I mean Nesta - then a very fruitful partnership could well develop.

Another thing I noticed was the fight and drive within the side, they played a faster game then the Milan of last year, they also chased and hassled more than in previous years, something that was extremely refreshing to see.

Marco Storari in the Milan goal is a weak point for me, arguably at fault for Ghezzal’s equaliser, he is not the quality Milan require between the sticks, though a more accomplished goalkeeper than Nelson Dida. Zambrotta’s legs have gone, and Gattuso seems a shadow of his former self and Jankulovski, for all his endeavour going forward, is very much a liability defensively.

With Klaas-Jan Huntelaar brought in and the possibility of a full-back on the horizon, I have become more of an optimist regarding Milan’s prospects this season, I may be a bit hasty after only one game, but there is definitely a good amount of ability and drive within the team, lets just hope injuries do not ruin the party.

Official Match Ball For Serie A 2009-2010 Season

Posted by Kevin Walker Friday, August 21, 2021
  • This is actually old news but I've not seen many images of the ball on the net and with no further ado the official match ball of the Italian Serie A this season is...

  • Asymmetrical High-Contrast Graphic creates an optimal flicker as the ball rotates for a more powerful visual signal allowing the player to more easily identify and track the ball

CASING:

  • Compressed Polyethylene Layer stores energy from impact and releases it at launch
  • Cross-Linked Nitrogen-Expanded Foam for exceptional shape retention and durability
  • Polyester Support Fabric enhances structure and stability BLADDER: 6-wing carbon-latex air chamber for explosive acceleration

How Will Milan, Juventus and Inter Fare This Season?

Posted by David Schiavone Wednesday, August 19, 2021
As the Serie A season draws upon us, I thought it was about time I produced my thoughts on the upcoming season and the summer gone. I will begin with the big three Juventus, Inter and Milan, and assess how they will do in the coming nine months.

I will start with champions Internazionale, who on the back of a 4th successive Scudetto sold their most prized asset in Zlatan Ibrahimovic. While I am sad to see the wonderfully talented Swede leave, I do think Inter have managed to achieve a magnificent deal for themselves. Samuel Eto’o will score goals that is of no doubt, and the €40 million will come in handy when purchasing a trequartista.

Inter will no longer be relying on one player to win them games, in addition they should also play more as a unit than happened last season. Jose Mourinho has also bolstered this defence with Lucio, who is a monster of a centre-back who can add extra steel to an already impressive back-line.

The one aspect that is missing from the team is a bit of creativity in the middle of the park, a fact that has been documented for the entire summer. Thiago Motta was brought in from Genoa, and in Esteban Cambiassio they have one of the best defensive midfielders in Europe. An old style number 10 is a must for Mourinho and many have been linked to the club, Wesley Sneijder has looked the most likely in recent weeks.

Inter look just as strong as previous years and it is up to their rivals in the championship to up their game, something that Juventus have done over the summer. Bringing in Diego, Felipe Melo Jose Caceres and Fabio Cannavaro. Bear in mind talented coach Ciro Ferrara has had a full pre-season under his belt; the omens look good for La Vecchia Signora.

Ferrara also has a number of young Juventino to call upon; Claudio Marchisio has established himself in the first eleven and also on the fringes of the Azzurri starting line-up. Paolo De Ceglie has also the potential to be a very good player for Juve, while the super-talented Sebastian Giovinco should get more of a chance to showcase is talent under Ferrara. The 4-3-1-2 brought in to accommodate Diego also suits Giovinco to the ground.

The acquisitions, development of the squad and hunger that they no doubt will possess under Ferrara make Juventus my tip to end the Biscione’s grip on the Scudetto.
AC Milan in stark contrast to their rivals have had a chaotic summer, only winning one pre-season friendly - on penalties - summer recruits have been few and far between, plus a lack of quality is apparent. New coach Leonardo hasn’t convinced during the summer, though I did have high hopes for him, and to an extent still do, I think he is being hampered by the clubs hierarchy.

Milan will be relying on a number of Brazilians this season, the aforementioned Leonardo, Thiago Silva, who was brought in during the January transfer window but unable to play due to EU player regulations, Pato, a player that at times showed signs of the absolute brilliance be posses last season and one Ronaldo de Assis Moreira or Ronaldinho to you and me.

The Milan number 80 has been placed as the centre of the team, Silvio Berlusconi made him stand on a table and pronounce to his teammates he will be a ‘better’ player and person this year. Leonardo will use a 4-3-1-2 system and build his team round the mercurial talent. Everything is there for Ronaldinho to get somewhere close to his best having gone through three years of relative mediocrity.

As a fan I am worried about the club, Jan-Klass Huntelaar is the only signing of quality brought in, Kaka sold and Maldini retired. Milan have failed to address any of the issues that have plagued them over the last year and it seems a year of underachievement beckons for myself and my fellow Diavolo.

Also there will be a full preview of Serie A on the Italian Football FanCast this week… Join myself, Dave, Aymen and Kris for all the latest happenings in Serie A.

SS Lippi Broadsides HMS Mourinho

Posted by Kevin Walker
With football season quickly approaching in Italy, bloggers frantically write previews on which club(s) they feel will be victorious or not so victorious come matchday 38. Is it just me or do others get bored with this type of analysis so early on. I much prefer waiting until several matchdays are completed before adding in my two cents.

Enter Italy manager and former Juventus taskmaster Marcello Lippi who this morning I discover has taken a pleasure in educating all of us on managerial success, even though his own international story is teetoring. After a dreadful performance at this summer's Confederation Cup in South Africa, Lippi has wasted no time sizing up Don Jose Mourinho with the arrival of Italian Serie A (Italy's premier domestic league), edging closer.

Football Italia has reported a "veiled" attack in the Famiglia Cristiana by Lippi on the so-called "Special One".


“You do not win games when you stand in front of the cameras and talk, but rather with what you say in the locker room. That is where great teams are made,” said Lippi.

“At the end of the day it is the players who step on to the field, not the Coaches. Mourinho, Ciro Ferrara and Leonardo cannot win alone."


Lippi's latest comments are nothing new previously upsetting the Portuguese when stating, “I had thought he was intelligent,” but all Mou has is experience. The Italy coach went on to predict Juventus would win the scudetto during the Bianconeri’s Trofeo Berlusconi defeat Friday against Milan which prompted the Inter Milan manager to accuse him of “lacking respect.”

Opening Day for the domestic Italian leagues is this Saturday remember to set your alarm clock.

TREBLE WAGER #1 - TREBLE WAGER #2 - TREBLE WAGER #3
Jose Mourinho's men will be missing a key component match day 1, after Esteban Cambiasso injured himself Friday in TIM Cup action. Cambiasso will be out for at least a month, and the 28-year-old is due to undergo knee surgery for damage to his right knee during a pre-season friendly with Juventus.

FC Internazionale Milano released a statement during the last 48 hours indicating, " our medical staff will perform an arthroscopic operation, which will be scheduled in the next few days,". Since joining the Nerazzurri in 2004, the former Real Madrid CF player as been an team anchor and crucial player under both Mancini and Mourinho.



With a World Cup event approaching in 2010, I for one cannot understand why Lega Calcio have not moved forward the season start. Give us Serie A as injuries are already mounting.
