‘2011-2012 club previews’

2010 -11 Recap A mid-table finish last term does not tell the whole story of a nerve wracking campaign for I Ducali which saw them flirt with relegation right up until the closing few weeks of the season. A change at the helm in early April, which saw former Bologna tactician Franco Colomba substitute Pasquale Marino in the Ennio Tardini hot-seat, proved a season saving move by larger than life president Tommaso Ghirardi as the former Uefa Cup Winners secured [...]

Season Preview: Catania Opening/Recap Catania finished last season in a relatively comfortable 13th position, exactly the same as the season before earning a point more in the process- which was a record for the club for the third year in a row. The side featured an exciting mix of stalwarts and rising youngsters, such as Matias Silvestre and Ezequiel Schelotto. Maxi Lopez rather single-handedly carried the strikeforce with eight goals throughout the season, including a match winner against Udinese and [...]

The 2010-11 season was filled with amazing highs and relative lows for Lazio fans. Le Aquile soared to the top of the table early in the season and remained there for a month or so before toppling under the immense pressure of a wonderful Milan side. They eventually slipped down to fifth, losing out on Champions League. This could be regarded as a relative failure given their quick fire start, but after flirting dangerously with relegation the season before, fans [...]

(original photo by AP Photo) Stevan Jovetic may never have been more damp in his whole life. As he rose from a giant pool of water on the St James’ Park pitch his Fiorentina strip appeared to have taken on a deeper hue of purple than those of his teammates. Yet despite his soaking he was grinning from ear to ear, just glad to be back doing what he loves best - playing football. In a summer of fan protests [...]

Season Preview: Cagliari Opening/Recap Despite a very poor run at the end of the season, which saw the side pick up a mere two points out of their last 6 games, Cagliari managed a 14th place finish. Considering the departure of star striker Alessandro Matri in January to Juventus, their position in the table becomes more understandable. The rest of the strike force struggled to score, with only Robert Acquafresca matching Matri’s tally. Manager Roberto Donadoni was surprisingly sacked earlier [...]

2010-11 Recap In their first season back in Serie A since 1990, the belief was the Seahorses would only enjoy their stay in the top flight for all of 38 games. After three weeks in, Cesena were the darlings of Serie A, sitting atop the table alongside Inter. The experience at the top didn’t last for long and the club became embattled in the relegation race late in the season. Yet, Cesena went on a fantastic run during the final [...]

Bologna captain Di Vaio (original photo by Reuters) 2010-11 Recap Bologna had a respectable campaign last season, avoiding relegation by five points after being docked a total of three - one for unpaid taxes and two for unpaid wages. Financial difficulties aside, the Rossoblu would have finished tied for fourteenth place without such penalties. The side proved to be one of the more frugal in the league, scoring a mere 35 goals in 38 games while conceding 52, the third [...]
