Cerci is a SS, not a RW.

It's what dreams are made of Proud
It doesn't exist, it was a misquote from when this forum was fairly new. Someone, hopefully, has it saved.

How come there's no love shown for Napoli in this thread ? or is it because Benitez, and his signings, are proving almost everyone in here to be wrong :coffee:

Ok, technically that's his position "on paper", but he readily drifts centrally and plays in behind the striker. That's how he scores many of his goals.

We play them next week. If we win, then I will appreciate them. :coffee:

In all seriousness though, they haven't played any really tough teams yet. Nevertheless, their perfect record is worthy of praise considering that our miserable team faced a similarly easy start to the season and have still managed to drop 5 points.

Also, I like their signings.

Italian side Genoa have suspended a coach after he was found hiding in bushes spying on a training session held by local rivals Sampdoria

Youth-team coach Luca De Pra is believed to have watched Sampdoria train from under a tree while dressed in camouflage gear, without the knowledge of his own club.

Sampdoria said in a statement De Pra was hiding "like Rambo under a tree".

I just hear nothing good from the Italian style of football Razz But I guess this is a common practise, not just in Italy?

For Juve, Pogba as good as he is, looks like need maturing as well, that turn over he had when he fooled himself and not the opposition was school boy like XD Pirlo also just look no where near his level now more and more often. How often they rely on Vidal for goals and not the strikers continue to amaze me. Tevez is overrated, they just still dont have a prolific scorer, I dont know, its just part of their game I guess?

My question is, are Juve still the big favourite this year?

Cerci spent his whole career as a RW,before this season Ventura was questioned how he was gonna implement Cerci in a 3-5-2...As an inside forward it was never gonna be much of a difference anyway,at least for his skill set.

Bologna,Chievo and Atalanta.Cant ask for an easier schedule and atleast two out of those three teams will be fighting for relegation this year.

They have done well but let them face some tough teams before making a judgement on them so early.

Low blow for Fiorentina.Cuadrado injured,Gomez injured and then they concede a late goal.

Great game imo overall.Enjoyed watching it.

Pizzaro sent off as well.... that will be a bigger blow than both the injuries. ( as long as the injuries are not long term anyway)

Rossi kinda looked isolated when Gomez went off.You can see how much of a difference it made to Rossi when Gomez was on the pitch.Both had a really good thing going.

So Napoli the only team so far with a 100% record.

Roma have a chance to maintain their 100% status as well with a win today against Parma.

I may be wrong, but didn't they have a woeful record away to Chievo ?

One of my friends told me that had not beaten Chievo away since 2010/11.

And yea, Napoli rested Callejon, Zuniga, Albiol, and Hamsik yesterday for 65 minutes, due to upcoming matches against Dortmund and Milan.

Chievo are getting obliterated by Lazio right now.Please,they look like a really poor side and history doesnt mean anything here especially when you're up against a minnow like them.They're a genuine contender for relegation in my view.

Rafa's team is yet to face a decent side in the league.

Yeah Napoli are looking good but out of the big teams, they've had the easiest fixtures available except for maybe AC Milan


They're 2 points ahead of us and we've played Lazio at home, Samp and Inter away.

To be fair, the only teams in Serie A that can be counted as decent are Juve, Milan, Inter, Roma, Fiorentina and Lazio Laughing

Cagliari.They're a decent mid-table team.They seem to perform well against big teams.

Catania.They've done well in the past.And they're an ok side on paper for me.They finished above Inter last season btw.

Udinese ? You just cant discount them.They always bounce back when people keep underestimating them.

Delio Rossi's Samp is solid but unspectacular.

They're quite a few 'decent' to ok teams out there then you'd think.

Napoli dont have a great away record.Lets see how they go as the season progresses.Its too early to make a judgement on them.That said they've done well for themselves so far.

O, totally forgot about Udinese. It's amazing how a large % Serie A teams are better on the counter as opposed in possession though.

Catania had a great season last year and influx of Argentines, but have had a poor start so far. I'm sure they'll be back up there.

Does Serie A have a team like Stoke's Pulis? Utterly shit and negative away from home, but usually very strong at their own ground ?

I must admit last year I did not watch a single Serie A game to full...this year so far I've watched all Napoli's game + Juve-Inter . I'm evolving Proud

To be fair ,half if not most of the bottom Italian teams as well as some of the top teams are extremely negative away from home.If you want me to pick out a side in particular,Catania are usually a strong side at home.Chievo were good as well and gave that Stoke impression everytime they faced a top/semi-top team.They look horrible now though.Havent followed them much(or their player/transfer activity) recently.
