Serie A Weekly welcomes writer Richard Hall A torrid week slipped slowly into catastrophic, as first the Nerazzurri were beaten in the Europa League by Tottenham only to have their 105th Birthday celebrations completely ruined by upstarts Bologna at the weekend. Massimo Moratti is suitably unimpressed and Andrea Stramaccioni should be fearful for his job, “I think my work will be judged at the end of the season and not now, then it will be up to the president to make [...]

If you’re a die-hard Inter Milan fan like I am, you must have been disappointed by the team’s season last year. It’s not really hard to understand what happened last season. The club made several mistakes in 2011 and unfortunately paid for most of them. First off the team lost its philosophy, its mental strength and its winning mentality from the Mourinho era.  A (record?) total of four managers in less than one year brought different tactical systems and different [...]

Only three games remain and the race for third only continues to get tighter. Last weekends result saw Napoli draw Roma, Udinese take 3 points from Lazio and Inter climb back with another win.

As I said last week, this race has been completely unpredictable but with only three games, I believe this race is Napoli’s to lose. Napoli are currently sitting in third. They have a goal [...]

Two weeks ago I professed that Roma’s chances at third place were over and that it was Lazio’s to lose with Napoli the best odds at finishing third. I was wrong. Following the last two weeks of results, the race is still open with Lazio still in the driving seat, but not comfortably. With 5 games left, the third spot in the Champions League is still up for grabs. The current table has Lazio in third with 55 points. 3 [...]

There was some idiotic scenes in the Genoa, as the home side -losing to Siena at the time -were demanded to take of their jerseys by their own ultras. The reasoning; according to this small minority of fans the players were not fit enough to wear the club’s colours. Marco Rossi, Genoa’s captain, ceded to their demands and went about collecting jerseys from his team-mates.  This left Genoa Giandomenico Mesto in tears on the pitch. To their credit, at least [...]

What another whirlwind 24 hours in the land of Pazza Inter. In a move that shocked some but was expected by many, Claudio Ranieri was relieved of his managerial duties late Monday evening.  It was a decision that had been a long time coming and could be argued that the ax should have been dropped sooner.  While Ranieri was able to pull the Nerazzurri out of the relegation places in the first half of the season, the same blistering form [...]

After the summer transfer window shut on August 31, 2011, most Interisti were relieved to see Wesley Sneijder was still an Inter Milan player.  Sneijder’s summer holiday locale of Los Angeles was fitting, as the drama surrounding him was suited for Hollywood.  Everyone needed to know if Inter’s Number 10 was staying or would soon be on his way to Manchester. It was decided that Samuel Eto’o was the one to be sold to Anzhi in Russia and Sneijder would [...]

Just a few weeks ago Inter were the talk of the Serie A, for all the right reasons. Seven consecutive wins on the back of solid defending and a return to form of striker Diego Milito saw the Nerazzurri shoot up the league table and become serious contenders for a Champions League place. There were even whisperings of Inter being a legitimate threat to Juventus and Milan for the Scudetto. Neutral fans of calcio rejoiced; the big three were back [...]
