One point.  Zero wins.  Three matches. Welcome to the start of Inter’s 2011-12 Serie A season. What should have been an easy win in celebration of Captain Javier Zanetti’s record breaking night in the Nerazzurri shirt, turned into an embarrassing night at the hands of Serie A newcomers, Novara.  Instead of commemorating the astounding 757 times ‘Pupi’ has worn the black and blue to place him as Inter’s all-time appearance leader, the post-match chatter was filled with criticism towards Inter [...]

After 82 minutes on Sunday at the Olimpico, Lazio boss took off left back Senad Lulic and replaced him with the 30 year old Marius Stankevicius. That doesn’t appear to be all that strange, until you see that he wasn’t injured and Lazio were trailing 2-1 that it is a very odd way for Edy Reja to use his final substitution.

We reach the end of the road in our Serie A club previews for 2011-2012 with Udinese Calcio.
