Philippe Mexes is a dirty cheat. He’s a walking red card and a thuggish scumbag; an explosion waiting to happen like that quiet, inevitable interval in between lighting a firecracker and waiting for it to go off. Philippe Mexes is a tremendous defender. Sure, he has a dirty side, but what centerback doesn’t? His expulsions tend to be a bit exaggerated, and what he gives to his team far outweighs his overstated lack of discipline. Loyalty, passion, and aggression are [...]

A footballer in this era showing some loyalty is unheard of but there is seemingly a few exceptions. As Roberto Martinez showed by staying at Wigan when Aston Villa came calling, Angelo Palombo is now doing the same by staying with Sampodria after their relegation to Serie B. The scenes of him crying at the end of the Palermo game - as he asked for the fans forgiveness behind both goals as the crowd applauded him - is something to [...]

It’s been two weeks since the end of the Serie A season and the fans of Bari, Brescia and Sampdoria will be mulling over a season or more in Serie B. How did it happen? And what now for the clubs? Sampdoria It started off on a bit of a downer as they were eliminated by Werder Bremen in Extra time in the last qualifying round of the Champions League. Then in October it started to go all wrong for [...]

It was 1992, Wembley Stadium, the European Cup final between Sampdoria and Barcelona. I remember seeing Gianluca Vialli sent through with only Zubizaretta to beat and he lobbed the goalkeeper but put it wide. Then in extra time, Ronald Koeman ended all my hopes and dreams as he smashed a free kick past Gianluca Pagliuca to hand Barcelona the trophy. Fast forward to Sunday May 16, 2010. After 18 long years of waiting, Sampdoria defeated Napoli 1-0 to finish 4th [...]

On Sunday night Sampdoria travelled to Rome to face sixth place AS Roma and came away with nothing in their final game after relegation. The awful campaign is now over and the exodus from the club looks like it will happen. For the game Sampdoria had to deal without Franco Semioli, Stefano Lucchini, Daniele Gastaldello and Federico Macheda all missed the trip to the capital. The opening twenty minutes of the game had a bit of a training feel to [...]

It is Sempre Sampdoria here at Serie A Weekly and after the official sending down this past weekend, thought it only appropriate we lift spirits with some eye candy wearing i Blucerchiati (the blue ringed) of the Genoa based club.

On Sunday evening just gone past 5pm and it was confirmed that Sampdoria was relegated to Serie B after losing 2-1 at home to Palermo. It was just twenty years ago they were Serie A champions and only just ten months ago they were playing in the premier European club competition against Werder Bremen in the fourth qualifying round of the Champions League. Unluckily they lost after conceding a ninety-fourth minute goal to Marcus Rosenberg which enabled the game to [...]

It was a Derby Day like no other in Genoa as the Eighty Second Lanterna derby took centre stage on Sunday night in the port city. A white hot electric atmosphere at the Marassi as Sampdoria had something to play for in their relegation battle to Serie B. The afternoon results did not go their way as Lecce got a last minute winner against Napoli and Sampdoria needed to pick up a result against their fiercest rivals Genoa. Both Davide [...]

Next up for Italian Serie A, Sunday’s Derby della Lanterna. But the real question is… will Genoa C.F.C place the nail in Sampdoria’s coffin? Il Doria sit in 17th place, one point above relegation. The slide into Serie B could well depend on derby results in little over 24 hours time. Has club president Riccardo Garrone made the mistake of a lifetime? Should he have kissed that beautiful but thorny Cassano butt-cheek? And with one star player out the door wasn’t [...]
