    Simone Inzaghi and Lazio though. Unbelievable job he is doing there after selling their best players and having a small squad.
    Not sure where to begin with Milan. Montella has been tactically too rigid. Not willing to alter something that's clearly not working and in the final third they look lost. No direction or style of play. Some of the signings have been disappointing (Bonucci, Kalinic) whilst others baffling (Borini) yet always start. There has been talk of Montella being replaced which I get the impression most rossoneri would not be against.

    Lazio, have been great. Ripped Milan a new one and immobili and that Brazilian behind him have just clicked. As for Inter, the word is Spalletti has reigned everything in and is running a very tight and organised ship.

    I see they trust their young Albanian keeper, Thomas Strakosha. He was raised in Greece and I was surprised we did not pick him, because he played for Panionios, a club we often buy talent from, and his father was the goalkeeper coach in our academy. One of the coaches of young Thomas had said he had never seen a keeper who was so ready for professional football ay the age of 16. He progressed slowly in Italy, but he progressed well.

    Yes, and with the stress on the last syllable.

    Lanus defeat River Plate 4-2 in the 2nd leg of the Copa Libertadores to go through to the final 4-3 on aggregate. River scored the 1st two goals of the match to go up 3-0 on aggregate but Lanus scored 4 unanswered to go through. Gremio-Barcelona 2nd leg tonight with Gremio leading 3-0.

    The Copa Libertadores final is set. Gremio lost at home to Barcelona 0-1 but still go through to the final 3-1 on aggregate. They will play Lanus over 2 legs.
    In Copa Sudamericana, it was Racing 0-0 Libertad with Libertad going through 1-0 on aggregate. If Tacing had gone through, they would most likely have played their Avellaneda neighbors Independiente in the semis but Libertad spoiled the party. In another quarter, the Flu-Fla derby had a great finish. Flamengo held a 1-0 aggregate lead going into their home leg at Maracana. It was 1-1 on the night after 10 minutes but Fluminense scored the next 2 goals to go up 3-1 (3-2 aggregate). But Flamengo scored the game’s final 2 goals, the last one in 94’ to even things up on the night and send Flamengo through to the semis 4-3 on aggregate.
    2 more quarterfinal games tonight in Sudamericana.

    I don't know what the fan said, but he would never make a player. He forgot to fall over and writhe on the floor for 10 minutes.

    For fans who travel the length and breadth of the country to support their team, this was a real kick in the teeth.

    Been released from OM.

    ...worth a punt?

    The chances of the fan not sort of deserving it are probably pretty slim.

    Thanks for the insight Huxley. Love my Italian football and try to keep up to date as much as possible.

    I must admit seeing Borini as a wing-back doesn't make sense to me.

    He knocked out a senior Italian keeper who was getting into Italian squads not so long ago too. Marchetti I think his name is.

    What's the deal with Stuttgart's shirt? I thought they played in white and red? They have a black t-shirt on with nothing on the front by the looks of things. No manufacturer logo. No club badge. Are they wearing the dodgy batch?

    You are right, the Swabians should wear the white shirts with the red hoops. Why they are wearing the 3rd shirt (the black one) I have no idea, but to be honest, VfB 2, BVB 1, I’m absolutely over the moon with that.

    Goalkeeper Ziegler was wearing a shirt with the regular Mercedes-Benz Bank Sponsor but nobody else was.

    Anyway, a welcome and unexpected three points, I’ll take that.

    Fruchtlos und treu!
