‘Parma FC’

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 [...]

It may not seem so now, but Parma was once a major protagonist in Italian football.  After financial turmoil and relegation a short few years ago, it may seem that the club is a far cry from the likes of Inter and Milan, but the truth is quite the opposite. As recently as 2002 the side won the Coppa Italia as well as the UEFA Cup: two competitions in which Parma were regulars in between the late 90s and early [...]

Julian De Martinis previews the weekends matches for us Lazio - Cesena. A game that might be tighter than expected. The home side have lost two of their last three and will be reeling from their Derby loss last weekend, as well as the subsequent suspensions of Stefan Radu and Cristian Ledesma. Cesena, on the other hand, pulled off a very decent draw against Juventus after being down two goals. Should Lazio fail to gain all three points here, the [...]

This new weekly feature may be titled “Northern Lights”, due to the fact that these Serie A clubs hail from the north of Italy, but based on league form it would be more propos to entitle it “Lower End Teams, So Low That Most of Them Are Fighting Relegation.” Only one of these teams is truly shining. The Contender: Udinese Udinese continue to play sparkling football and have been duly rewarded, reaching the height of fourth place for the first [...]

Within thirty six minutes, Roma were two goals up against Parma, and fans were beginning to worry. After all, how many times have tifosi seen the side take a lead, only to lose it later on? How often now have Roma conceded goals late in games? Far too often, and Vincenzo Montella’s dream debut was halted merely two games into it, as Parma clawed their way back into the game for a point. Roma can take small solace in the [...]

After rubbing your eyes and checking the date, you can be sure it is true. Amauri did indeed score two goals today to tie the match for Parma, who came from two down to earn a 2-2 draw with Roma.

While drawing players from various parts of South America and naturalising them as citizens through their parents or grandparents, Italian football has benefited hugely over the last century from the repatriation of numerous members of the Italian diaspora. Raimondo Orsi, Jose Altafini and Omar Sivori are among the most famous members of an ever increasing group of immigrants to don the famous Azzurri shirt. It became such common practice in the years immediately following the Second World War that it [...]

Three big stories this past week have perhaps set in motion a chain of events, the eventual results of which may have huge implications on both the Serie A title race this season and the future of the Italian national team. First among these, and easily the saddest tale is the season-ending knee injury suffered by Fabio Quagliarella. On loan from Napoli and Juve’s top scorer, he was fast ridding himself of the oft-cliched ‘scorer of great goals but not [...]

The last game of the Week 11 fixtures was played on a very misty Thursday night and Valeri Bojinov grabbed a late goal to take Parma of the bottom of the league and kept Pasquale Marino job for the time being. Parma was missing two of the attack force with Sebastian Giovinco and Alberto Paloschi to injury. Sampdoria were missing Franco Semoli, Marco Padalino and Antonio Cassano who is in a wrangle with the president of Sampdoria over Cassano contract [...]
