Italian Serie A News, Results, Analysis and Features on Football Soccer

Diego Milito’s quadruple known as a ‘poker’ against Palermo was a rare moment, in fact it was only the sixth time it’s happened in ten years, but with Italy’s final friendly before Euro 2012 looming it focused the eyes on the Azzurri’s frontline. The Argentinian’s four-step sent him into a comic book group that features ‘the little plane’, Vincenzo Montella, twinkle-toes Christian Vieri, and ‘The Wonder Boy’ Alexis Sanchez. The sextuplet is completed by Alberto Gilardino, who should be nicknamed […]

On October 11 last year in the provincial city of Pescara, Italy ended their qualifying campaign with a 3-0 win over Northern Ireland. It was the perfect ending as Italy finished top of their group. It was also just reward for coach Cesare Prandelli who managed to rebuild a strong Azzurri from the wreckage of the 2010 World Cup disaster. The undoubted star man for Prandelli’s new look Azzurri was Milan’s Antonio Cassano. A player who came to prominence at […]

Interazionale sprung a big surprise on Sunday night to claim their biggest win of the season with a 1-0 victory in the Milan derby. Both teams entered the fixture in fine form (Milan were unbeaten in 12, Inter had won five in-a-row), but it was the Nerazzurri who prevailed after one of the season’s great stifling performances. Wesley Sneijder returned to the match-day squad for the first time since early November, giving Inter a clean bill of health save for […]

It was not supposed to happen this way. After years as a wayward, controversial and underachieving player, this was the season when Antonio Cassano’s career finally started to show all of its glorious potential. And it did, at least until November. The Italian champions start to the current campaign was nothing short of atrocious. A heavy loss to Napoli and a convincing defeat by Juventus saw Max Allegri’s side slide down the table. Yet, there was one truly bright spark […]

1) They’re baaaaaack! And probably better than ever. The Champions have had a sluggish start to the season, but the biggest shock was not the high profile losses against Napoli and Juventus themselves, but the manner in which they were utterly outplayed by both pretenders and looked completely toothless. Finally though a convincing performance in every department, epitomised by the fact that Palermo didn’t even have a shot on target in the second half; this against a team that has […]

Champions AC Milan are back to their brilliant best after an utterly dominant 3-0 victory against Palermo. Massimiliano Allegri stated prior to the match that Milan had to “get three points” above all else, but what he got was far more important. Accomplished performances from the midfield new boys Nocerino and Alberto Aquilani, a stunning comeback from Brazilian Robinho, doubts over Antonio Cassano and Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s commitments to the long term future thoroughly dispelled and above all else a champions […]

It was a great celebration that was long overdue for the red half of the San Siro. With Kevin-Prince Boateng doing his best impression of the late Michael Jackson, Milanisti cheered wildly as their beloved team was presented with its 18th Scudetto, and first since 2003-2004. Fast-forward only a month into the new campaign, and Milan find themselves in unfamiliar territory. The Rossoneri are struggling through their worst start to a Serie A season since 2001. Sitting a very modest […]
