2009-10 Italian Serie A Matchday 10 Fixtures

Posted by Kevin Walker Wednesday, October 28, 2021
Being a mid-week fixture list I've got no written previews this time around but would recommend you listen to our Minute+10 podcast posted early today.
Match of the Day will most definitely be Juventus vs Sampdoria and I suspect the visitors will come out all guns blazing not prepared to sit back and play for a draw result so if I had choice I'd pick the visitors to win as Juventus are suffering from several injuries at the moment including Buffon you continues to play on with a knee problem.

Inter welcome southerners Palermo to the San Siro on Thursday so make time to catch that match somewhere as well as it should be a cracker.

The Top Ten Prodigies of Serie A

Posted by Marzia Hazra Tuesday, October 27, 2021
Serie A is simply overflowing with young talent these days and picking out a top ten list of youngsters playing their trade in the Italian peninsula is harder than one might think. Below are ten prodigies born from 1986 and onwards - listed in alphabetical order.










Alberto Paloschi, Parma: Forward - Paloschi is probably playing his last season away on loan before AC Milan finally decides to bring him back into their ranks - but don’t count on Parma letting go of their prized asset with ease considering that they own half the rights to the player. Last season the teenager opted for a loan and was shipped out to a newly relegated Parma side as Ronaldinho made his high profiled move to the San Siro. The forward went on to play a crucial role as the club was promoted back to Italy’s top flight after spending just one year in the second tier. The rising star has become the first choice despite great competition and has featured in all nine outings thus far. If Paloschi managed to add to his goal tally he could earn himself a return to his parent club and once more play alongside his idol, Filippo Inzaghi.

Alexandre Pato, AC Milan: Forward - After an impressing first calendar year at Milan the forward has done nothing to diminish his €22 million price tag. Laying the foundation with his hard working attitude the young Brazilian has become one of his side’s key-players and an excellent building block for the future with his lightning speed, unique technical skills, great finishing, and outstanding reading of the game. Despite only being 20 years of age ‘The Duck’ carries immense responsibilities on his young shoulders - especially after the departure of fellow countryman Ricardo Kaká. After struggling through a goal drought for seven rounds it now seems like he’s finally left it behind him as he downed both AS Roma and bagged a brace against Real Madrid at the mighty Santiago Bernabeu.

Claudio Marchisio, Juventus: Midfielder - The Turin-native seems to get better for every passing game. Although there isn’t much hype surrounding the hardworking the player the midfielder has gone from rising talent to a fully bloomed midfield maestro. The 23-year old tends to up his game when the stakes are high and considering Juventus’ play as of lately there’s no denying how much the team and its supporters are missing the midfielder as he’s slowly recovering from his knee operation.

Davide Santon, Inter Milan: Defender - The Inter Milan youngster has quickly risen through the ranks and in just one season emerged as one of Italy’s brightest prospects. His electric pace, precision tackles and calm composure has drawn parallels to former greats such as Paolo Maldini. Despite passing Maxwell to the bench last season, things haven’t gone quite as smoothly this campaign considering that the full back has only made three appearances to date. The talented defender has all the qualities to be headed towards the same path as Maldini. Santon will undoubtedly be one of the building blocks around which Inter and La Nazionale are built around in the future. A legend in the making.

Marek Hamšík, Napoli: Midfielder - Despite Napoli’s disappointing performances over the past calendar year there has been one player that has managed to deliver on a consistent basis. The talented midfielder is extremely hard-working and never accepts a lost cause. The Slovakian possesses immense speed which he mixes with his characteristic explosive surges in pace - making him highly difficult to mark. On top of that he’s the club’s highest goal scorer with five goals in nine outings. Top clubs all over Europe have become aware of the Napoli’s rated midfielder, but they will have to keep waiting as charismatic owner Aurelio De Laurentiis have no intention to release his crown jewel anytime soon.

Mario Balotelli, Inter Milan: Forward - There is no denying how extremely talented Balotelli is, but unfortunately his own temper and attitude have intervened with his development. Ever since SuperMario burst on to the scene at a mere 17 of age, he’s had several publicized rows with manager José Mourinho. As a result he’s been sent to sit in the stands and even back to the Primavera team only to be reinstated in the senior squad once more. After being blasted by his team mates towards the end of the last season, the youngster seems like he’s finally come to his senses and now lets the performance on the pitch do the talking. Facing competition from the likes of Diego Milito and Samuel Eto’o, the Ghana-born Italian will have to make sure to impress when given the opportunity.

Mauro Zarate, Lazio: Forward - Zarate was firing on all cylinders last season and put himself on the map in high fashion as his spectacular performances sent Lazio flying. The young Argentine was one of the main reasons to the capital club’s Coppa Italia triumph - their first title in five years. The forward quickly went on to become a fan favorite and scored a remarkable 13 goals in his debut season in Italy - resulting in Lazio paying a reported €20 million in order to release him from his contract with Al-Sadd. ‘The Zarate Kid’ has only found the back of the net on two occasions this season but is sure to soon set the stage on fire with the same mind-blowing performances we got used to last season.

Sebastian Giovinco, Juventus:Midfielder/Forward - The Atomic Ant is probably Italy’s most talented player, but with Ciro Ferrara opting to go with other playmaking abilities at the moment, the pint-sized trequartista’s qualities sadly remains unexploited on the bench. Given that Gio’s abilities are predicted to be superior to that of club icon Alessandro Del Piero says just how much talent the player possesses. Don’t let his small stature fool you as his technical abilities and explosiveness combined with his lightning speed are far superior than that of others - and often leaves no other way for opponents than having to resort to hacking him down. Despite numerous offers from overseas as well as domestically, little Gio wants to carry on fighting for a spot at his beloved Juventus. Hopefully Ferrara will soon see what the rest of Italy already know.

Simon Kjaer, Palermo: Defender - Despite only being 20 years of age the young Dane has been hailed as one of the most complete defenders to emerge in recent years. The tall blond centre back’s stellar debut season also resulted in a call-up to the Danish national team where he’s been able to hold down a spot during his nation’s qualification to South Africa. Not many teenage defenders manage to leave big impacts on their teams in the early stages of their careers but this player certainly is different.

Stevan Jovetic, Fiorentina: Forward - Jovetic has been one of Serie A’s brightest prospects for a while now, but the youngster only recently introduced himself to the rest of Europe with his emphatic brace against Liverpool. Clubs all over the continent are showcasing interest for the young forward, but could be disappointed as the Montenegrin has pledged his future to the Viola on several occasions. The teenager has been predicted to become a future great and with the performances we’ve seen thus far there is nothing to contradict that.

Italian Serie A Matchday 9 Preview

Posted by Kevin Walker Saturday, October 24, 2021
Lucky number 9 but for whom? AC Milan arrive off their biggest win this campaign after beating Real Madrid midweek in Champions League.
Will their form / luck carry over to Sunday's match when they meet the flying donkeys of Chievo Verona?

For manager Leonardo I hope so as Milan have won only once on the road in four attempts, with the sole victory stretching back to opening day against Siena. In that match it was young Brazilian Alexandre Pato who converted two for the visitors and the same will be required today as Chievo are a tough side to breakdown.

It was Pato who scored winning goals against Roma and Real Madrid (netting 2 against the Spaniards) in the last 2 outings, suggesting the Milan striker is returning to form. This change couldn't come at a better time for manager Leonardo. The Brazilian has had to bunkered down after inconsistent results, with Milan unable to string together back to back wins thus far this season. Suspended is Ambrosini and dangereous Chievo having lost their last match against Bari at home will be chopping at the bit for something from this one. Yepes, their Colombian defender, will be suspended for this match, with Mandelli deputised and Bogdani coming in for Granoche, joining Pelissier upfront.

Conditioning is going to be a factor for the visitors with the question being asked do they have enough in the tank after travelling to Madrid and the Bernabeu?


Prediction: Milan to not to lose although some pundits are suggesting the home win because of issues of fatigue, I'm of the opinion the midweek result against Real is what the doctor ordered to turn the corner. Lay Milan

Other notable matches and probably match of the day is,

Palermo vs Udinese

Palermo will miss their suspended Danish defender, Kjaer, yet his absence is pretty much their only problem. Di Natale could not play last week, but he is back in the lineup for Udinese this weekend. His upfront partner, Floro Flores, also returns from a suspension. It was a strange Udinese starting line up last week, without both their regular strikers, Di Natale and Floro Flores, and one has to say that their loss to Atalanta was not surprising being short in attack.

Udinese will probably be back to basics this matchday hoping to draw one on road as they travel south. Palermo will no doubt be looking for the home win all guns blazing.

Prediction: Although you can't discount Di Natale this season with the Naples man running away at the top of the scoring charts so early, I'm going with the homeside in this one not losing at home in four starts.
Palermo to win



Fiorentina vs Napoli

Big question is, has Walter Mazzarri had enough time to turn things around at Napoli? answer is... nope but owner Aurelio De Laurentiis is always seeking immediate results for his visitors in blue. The former Sampdoria manager will be on the hotseat to produce every match and this one against the Viola is no exception. This is only Mazzarri's second match at the helm, replacing Roberto Donadoni after the 1-2 loss to Roma on October 4th. Napoli were mostly lucky winning 2-1 against Bologna last week. The visitors will be missing defenders Cannavaro, Zuniga and Santacroce. The Napoli keeper De Sanctis is struggling with an injury and Iezzo is ready to sub in. Napoli will not gift wrap this one for Fiorentina so don't expect a walk over still the pre-match situation suggests home win.

Prediction: Fiorentina to win , possible Over 2.5 look for Jovetic (2.75) or Hamsik (3.75) to score

Product Review: 09-10 Adidas F50i TUNit Boots

Posted by Kevin Walker Thursday, October 22, 2021

The Adidas F50i has a arrived and topping the performance charts should happen with ease as our latest upgrade in boot technology enters the soccer striker scene.

Our product review partners SoccerPro.com who carry a wide variety of soccer shoes were kind enough to send out a sample pair and out of all the boots reviewed thus far at Serie A Weekly these babies are, in the words of Kenny Hassan from WorldFootballDaily, "very niceee".



I found the Adidas F50i to be very forgiving as the Sprintskin(a rubberized fabric) conforms well to the foot, while the mid-sole "sockliner" provided good comfort in heel and ball zone. The Adidas F50i breaks down into 2 additional parts/zones with a ridged inner chassis TUNit base (placed below the sockliners) which holds in place the outer studs. Speaking of studs...these boots come with a multi-purpose stud-key and 3 stud sets 1 each for hard, firm, and soft ground conditions. All these little extras from Adidas make sure you always turn up on match day with the right boots.



Players who have worn the new adidas F50i football boots, have enjoyed a good run of form, including Lionel Messi, Josmer Altidore and Marcus Berg, who was top scorer in the European U21 Championship.

"With the extremely smooth external skin of the boot, I can play to my full potential. It allows me to make the perfect contact with the ball. It is also a fantastic colour." says Messi,



and although the Messi preferred Cyan/White/Black colors are at the moment the most popular, I decided to opt for the more traditional Adidas F50i TUNit Black/White/Cyan version.

Adidas have recently released a All-White Champions League version which also look "very niceee" and I assume feel just as sharpish (see the images below, look for the Champions League star) and it would be "very niceee" for the Adidas marketting machine if players from Real Madrid's new Galáctico feature in this version to counter all the Messi blue.

Adidas advertising also really pitch the F50i TUNit's fully customisable format, making these a gadget heaven for those of us who like our man toys.

Lets talk technical specs


  • Upper: Sprintskin is a revolutionary single-layer synthetic for incredible ball feel and reduced weight. Innovative lace cover without any velcro allows for an optimal fit and increased kicking area.

  • Lining: Single layer microfibre PU Synthetic which is lighter than ever before. The 3D graphic is different to each boot meaning that each individual will have their own unique boot.

  • Chassis: New exchangeable pre-moulded TUNiT standard insock for premium support and cushioning.

  • new Agion fibre liner: is a inorganic silver compound used on the whole F-Line that prevents growth and migration of bacteria on the surface of the product. Not only this, it also ensures the prevention of odor causing bacteria and athletes foot.

  • Outsole: Traxion FG for grip and comfort on firm natural surfaces. Comes with additional SG and HG studs.

Pato Screams Keep The Faith Rossoneri

Posted by Kevin Walker
It was Champions League Wednesday scoreline Real Madrid 2-3 AC Milan

Two-goal hero Pato insisted AC Milan had proved their worth after a memorable UEFA Champions League triumph away to Real Madrid CF that put the Rossoneri right back in contention in Group C. more at UEFA.com in Pato restores Rossoneri pride

This morning from Football Italia in their article on Pato AC Milan teammates speak out.
Milan midfielder Andrea Pirlo who believes that his team-mate Alexandre Pato can do a lot more damage in his new position. In Pirlo hails Pato performance Pirlo is quoted saying,

“Pato has scored two important goals, both for him and the team. He is a great champion and will show himself to be even more so throughout the course of the season”

Several months after the departure of former Milan manager Carlo Ancelotti it seems Pato is back to form scoring winning goals against both Roma on Sunday and Real Madrid yesterday. The young Brazilian had performed well last season under Ancelotti's guidance which hasn't been the same case under fellow Brazilian Leonardo this season.

Finally Goal.com has come out with a post on Player Ratings after yesterday's Champions League showdown between Real and Milan where Pato holds the pinacle of performance scoring an 8 with a, mature performance; had the measure of Marcelo and plugged away as his side struggled for chances. He eventually came up with the goods.

Parma FC: Back to Stay?

Posted by Marzia Hazra
Last season Parma finished second in Serie B with 76 points to their name - four short of league winners Bari - and where once again back in Italy’s top flight after having spent a single season in the second tier. When fellow newcomers Bari and Livorno who only had “La Salvezza” set as their targets, Parma had other things on their minds.

Directly after the promotion club president Tommaso Ghirardi declared that he wanted the club to make history the in the coming season. The ambitions were high from the get-go and Ghirardi didn’t waste any time getting started on his new project.

The biggest arrival of the summer was undoubtedly the former Udinese sporting director, Pietro Leonardi. Considering Leonardi’s great record from his previous club the expectations were high. Despite losing important players such as Luca Cigarini and Magnus Troest the side has acted quickly. After an impressive summer full of activities on the player mercato the club has collected a healthy mix of fresh talents and experienced players that could go a very long way.

Newcomer Antonio Mirante has taken over as first choice between the sticks. In defense Hernan Dellafiore, Pablo Fontanello and Christian Panucci have arrived to bolster a young defense. Although Damiano Zenoni continues to perform below par, his team mate Cristian Zaccardo - who joined from German champions Wolfsburg this summer - has really stepped to the plate. The full-back revealed that he had turned down numerous other Italian sides and Champions League play in order to join Parma and his former coach Francesco Guidolin.

Players such as Blerim Dzemaili, MacDonald Mariga and Daniele Galloppa have already left their impacts in midfield. The latter has in particular showcased some brilliant performances as he’s able to dictate play and score important goals. To his disposal Guidolin also has two up-and coming wingers in Jonathan Biabiany and Davide Lanzafame.

In attack Parma has in their possession two of Serie A’s most interesting players. After spending two years on the sidelines in Manchester City, Valeri Bojinov opted for a move to Parma and if the injury prone striker can stay away from injuries he could easily become one of his side’s key players. The same goes for his strike partner Alberto Paloschi. The Milan-product has been regarded as a great talent is probably spending his last season on loan.

The players mentioned above along with the rest of the squad makes a great mix of talent and routine and thus far the newly promoted side has exceeded all expectations. The team boasts great depth for a club of their standards and is unpredictable in their play considering that Guidolin’s men possess enough quality and dimension to play different formations. On top of that, Parma plays free-flowing attack minded football instead of the Catenaccio combined with the counter attacks which is so typical for newcomers.

By the looks of things I would say that Parma is back to stay.
Good weekend for the neutral but bad days for punters, unless you like betting on the draw of course. Another 5 draw matchday in week 7, with Ronaldinho salvaging a late point for AC Milan.

Does Leonardo have the ability to drive mighty Milan forward? or will Roberto Donadoni and Napoli part ways first as the team from Naples is embarassed in the capitale once again lossing 1-2 to AS Roma at Stadio Olimpico.

Oops guess what, the second is the case as Napoli sack Donadoni and replace the former Azzurri/Napoli manager with Walter Mazzarri Football Italia are reporting Mazzarri has signed a contract until 2011 worth just over £1m a season. He will be unveiled at the club's training ground in Castelvolturno tomorrow morning.

One Word, motivation and AC Milan needs buckets. The LA Galaxy and England international David Beckham has revealed he is nearing an agreement upon his return to AC Milan.

The English superstar footballer knows he must play in Europe to win a place in Fabio Capello’s World Cup squad and MLS commissioner Don Garber has confirmed talks are ongoing with AC Milan over the transfer.

Becks enjoyed a successful stint at the San Siro last season, and appears to be relishing a return to Italy when the January 2010 transfer window opens. He said in the Mail on Sunday: “There are other options available, but none that will stop me going to Milan, It is close to being finalised.”
AS Roma fans are well aware of plans to have their club leave the shared pitch of the stadio Olimpico and so without further ado here is a video showing off what is in store for the Giallorossi.

(the second video is the first part of the official presentation with AS Roma players, administers, tifosi and media, additional portions of the presentation can be found on youtube)










The new venue will be capable of holding 55,000 with an open roof design and is named for their long time patron Franco Sensi. While under his leadership A.S. Roma won one scudetto (2000-2001), two Supercoppa Italiana(2001 and 2007) and two Coppa Italia (2007 and 2008).

Serie A Matchday 7 Preview

Posted by Kevin Walker Saturday, October 3, 2021
I'm a wee bit reluctant predicting any outcome this match-day especially after last week which tabled five draw results with all under 2.5 goals. Add to this the mid-week European madness which included Juventus, Inter, AC Milan, Fiorentina, Genoa, Lazio and Roma and stamina of even the top clubs will be questioned this weekend.

Palermo vs Juventus

The visitors emptied their tanks in midweek, grinding out a nil- nil result against Bundesliga Bayern Munich. The Turin defence was severely stretched in the first half, but the Bianconeri were ready to give their utmost. Amauri, Zebina and C Poulsen will play from the start this time but their elder statesman Del Piero is out of action.

I can see Juventus being slightly out of focus down south on Sunday yet Buffon between the sticks is always sharp and currently is in better than normal form.

Simon Kjaer, the Palermo centre-back, is a major injury doubt and he could be replaced by Goian. Edinson Cavani will probably be preferred to Igor Budan upfront and coach Walter Zenga has yet to decide which players will play on the Palermo midfield. Time for Palermo to play a really big game. Look for a low scoring encounter (contrary to what others predict) and lay Palermo to not lose.

Possible line-ups

Palermo (4-3-1-2): Sirigu; Balzaretti, Bovo, Kjær, Cassani; Bresciano, Migliaccio, Nocerino; Pastore; Miccoli, Cavani

Juventus (4-3-1-2): Buffon; Grosso, Chiellini, Legrottaglie Zebina; Poulsen, Melo, Camoranesi; Diego; Trézéguet, Amauri
