What Serie A clubs Juventus, Roma, Inter, Milan and Napoli need to do

Sun, 11 Jun 2017 02:11:00 PDT

Ivory coast international Franck Kessie is headed to the San Siro after helping Atalanta to their best ever Serie A finish. Stewart Robson feels the addition of Luciano Spalletti to Inter Milan will do them a deal of good at challenging for titles. Gab Marcotti is skeptical Alvaro Morata will leave Real Madrid, even with AC Milan's new owners looking to make a splash. Gab Marcotti and Stewart Robson break down the latest rumours from Cardiff, including links between Ivan Perisic and Man United. Juventus Since January, Juventus have played a 4-2-3-1 and will recruit accordingly. Signing wingers is now the priority, although Juventus' efforts to strengthen the midfield will continue regardless of the arrival of Rodrigo Bentancur from Boca Juniors. A lot of work was done on signing Corentin Tolisso but Juventus' interest has decreased in proportion with every increase Lyon have made to his asking price. Douglas Costa (Bayern Munich), Angel Di Maria (PSG) and Keita Balde (Lazio) have emerged...

Luciano Spalletti's track record hints he can be successful at Inter Milan

Fri, 9 Jun 2017 12:09:00 PDT

Stewart Robson feels the addition of Luciano Spalletti to Inter Milan will do them a deal of good at challenging for titles. Luciano Spalletti praises his Roma squad as he departs the club, while also lamenting their lack of unified direction. In a welcome contrast to last summer, Inter announced the arrival of their new coach early this time around, officially hiring Luciano Spalletti on a two-year deal today. After being linked with Antonio Conte and Diego Simeone, there's little point denying that the pick is seen as underwhelming by part of the Nerazzurri fanbase, especially as the Tuscan coach (he's from Certaldo, near Florence) was unable to deliver a title to Roma, and had a public standoff with club legend Francesco Totti...

Zidane proves he's perfect for Real right now, Wenger's big risk, Inter mess

Mon, 5 Jun 2017 07:50:00 PDT

The FC crew react to Cristiano Ronaldo's comments saying his critics have to 'put their guitar back in its case.' When Zinedine Zidane was appointed to replace Rafa Benitez back in January 2016, plenty were skeptical -- including yours truly. Boy, were we wrong. His first 17 months at the helm of the club have been close to unparalleled, and any concerns over his experience and personality have been blown away. What about his lack of experience? Fact is, Real Madrid -- especially this Madrid -- is so different from any other club that a long track record elsewhere isn't quite as relevant. Far more important...

Super Ivan Perisic ensures a happy end to a difficult season for Inter Milan

Mon, 29 May 2017 02:52:00 PDT

Perisic was superb in smashing a disinterested Udinese side. Where was this form all season? Inter put a demotivated Udinese side to the sword 5-2 to finish up the 2016-17 campaign in a disappointing seventh place. The Nerazzurri went ahead early when Davide Santon found Eder unmarked in the box. Ivan Perisic then began his show, scoring a goal and putting the visitors' defence to the torch, with an assist for Marcelo Brozovic to make it three. Udinese lost heart but still managed to answer back with two goals. Positives The Nerazzurri avenged the 5-2 loss inflicted upon them by the...

Inter plan to fund James bid by selling Perisic to Man United for €55m

Inter's attitude and tactics have improved but their issues go deeper

Fri, 26 May 2017 08:13:00 PDT

Stefano Vecchi is 1-1 in his stint as Inter's caretaker manager, which ends Sunday against Udinese. Nerazzurri fans finally caught a break over the weekend when a reinvigorated Inter beat Lazio 3-1 at the Stadio Olimpico under the tutelage of caretaker Stefano Vecchi. Unfortunately, there were plenty of reasons to worry, reasons that go beyond the fact that Lazio were coming off a Coppa Italia final loss to Juventus or Inter's quest for Europe already being over. And to think that a lot had gone right for Vecchi's men. For a start, the coach got his tactics spot on, finally balancing out attack...

Inter Milan launch barcode-inspired 2017-18 home kit, Roma keep it simple

Thu, 25 May 2017 03:28:00 PDT

Inter Milan have unveiled their kit for the 2017-18 season, with one of the most iconic designs in football re-imagined as a barcode. The classic Nerazzurri blue-and-black-striped pattern has been jazzed up by manufacturers Nike to more closely resemble something you might scan at the supermarket, but many fans didn't seem too keen to take it to the checkout by the way they reacted to the unveiling on Twitter. ��⚫️�� #Inter and @nikefootball present the 2017/18...

Inter Milan deliver on the road against Lazio to end Serie A losing streak

Mon, 22 May 2017 05:46:00 PDT

Eder had another strong outing for Inter Milan in a 3-1 victory against Lazio. Inter put an end to their four-game Serie A losing streak with a hard-fought 3-1 win against Lazio. The hosts didn't waste any time as Keita Balde was brought down in the box by Jeison Murillo and converted the resulting penalty inside 19 minutes. Stefano Vecchi's men reacted well, equalising when veteran benchwarmer Marco Andreolli surged onto an Ivan Perisic header to power home the equaliser. But Inter found themselves leading at the half when Wesley Hoedt carelessly turned in an Antonio Candreva...

Five things Inter need in a new manager to accelerate their rebuild

Fri, 19 May 2017 09:59:00 PDT

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti discusses the good and the bad of Inter Milan's season following their 5-4 defeat at Fiorentina. Chelsea boss Antonio Conte says he would rather focus on the moment than discuss the rumours linking him to the Inter job. With Inter sacking Stefano Pioli ten days ago, fans of the Nerazzurri can expect another summer rife with rumours and speculation. While it may be too early to talk about the numerous candidates set to replace him, it isn't premature to discuss what Inter's future manager will need to do to keep both the club (and his own reputation) afloat. Here are five key issues that have to be addressed if the blue side of Milan is to have anything to celebrate next season. 1. Work on the defence The...

Inter Milan fans make a genuine statement by leaving San Siro

Mon, 15 May 2017 08:27:00 PDT

Inter Milan supporters leave the San Siro to protest the club's problems. Inter Milan's nose-dive continued on Sunday with their fourth consecutive defeat, a 2-1 home setback against Sassuolo. They've taken two of a possible 24 points in their last eight games and you have to go all the way back to the 1981-82 season to find the last time they went eight games without a win. Stefano Pioli is now gone, with Stefano Vecchi back for his second stint as caretaker, and the owners are entertaining fantasies of bringing Antonio Conte or Diego Simeone to the San Siro. (When they...

Fan revolt as Inter Milan plumb new depths with defeat against Sassuolo

Mon, 15 May 2017 05:11:15 PDT

It was another long day for Marcelo Brozovic and Inter Milan. Inter were handed a fourth straight defeat by Sassuolo on Sunday, allowing Pietro Iemmello to double his seasonal tally by netting a brace either side of half-time. Gifted the first by Jeison Murillo's poor control, the Calabrian native was able to sidefoot an easy second after the entire back line went down with a case of collective amnesia. Having at least looked like they were on top before the break, Inter completely fell apart after that, relying on individual talents (Eder pulled one back,...

Antonio Conte is Inter Milan's dream hire, but would he deliver?

Thu, 11 May 2017 06:12:33 PDT

The FC guys answer your tweets on Dani Alves, Stefano Pioli's sacking at Inter and whether or not Jose Mourinho is a whiner. The axe has finally been swung: Having already given the players a stern talking to, Inter owner Jindong Zhang sacked Stefano Pioli on Tuesday evening, leaving youth team Coach Stefano Vecchi to take over for the second time this season, Luckily for despairing fans, it appears that Zhang had had enough of the Nerazzurri's slide, and is determined to put his own stamp on the club's handling of sporting matters by focussing on hiring Antonio Conte -- the best candidate for the job at this point. With...

Transfer Talk: Antonio Conte promised players to join Inter Milan

Wed, 10 May 2017 05:52:00 PDT

Roman Abramovich will hope to persuade Antonio Conte to stay with the Blues, who could clinch the Premier League title on Friday. Antonio Conte is the No. 1 choice of new Inter Milan technical coordinator Walter Sabatini and Italian newspaper Tuttosport says the Chelsea boss will be handed Roma stars Radja Nainggolan and Antonio Rudiger to begin his Nerazzurri revolution.

Inter Milan merely going through the motions in defeat to Genoa

Mon, 8 May 2017 07:30:00 PDT

Stafano Pioli's decision to replace Mauro Icardi against Genoa raised eyebrows. A frankly unwatchable Inter Milan side lost 1-0 to Genoa on Sunday, going down to a close-range Goran Pandev goal. A listless attempt at a second-half comeback was capped by a horrible penalty attempt -- a typical Nerazzurri ending. Another Inter Milan player of years past -- Nicolas Burdisso, testament to the Grifone's limited talent pool -- handled a volley in the box with three minutes to go, only for Antonio Candreva to see his feeble penalty saved by Eugenio Lamanna. Positives Not applicable....

Neymar's sister and Brazil striker Gabriel 'Gabigol' Barbosa are an item

Fri, 5 May 2017 04:57:00 PDT

After weeks of largely mild speculation, Neymar's younger sister has confirmed she is dating her brother's international teammate, Inter Milan striker Gabriel "Gabigol" Barbosa. Rafaella, who is a model by trade, posted a black-and-white photo on Instagram of the new couple sharing a little smooch, thus cementing the relationship for all to see. Just to seal the deal, Gabigol did likewise but in full and glorious technicolour. ❤️ A post shared by Gabriel Barbosa ����...

Could Diego Simeone or Antonio Conte have success with Inter Milan?

Wed, 3 May 2017 12:55:00 PDT

With Inter earning a mere point in a month and being completely schooled by Napoli at the weekend, the talk of the Nerazzurri hiring Diego Simeone or Antonio Conte has intensified once again. The idea is that either one of these candidates is exactly what the Milanese side need to return to the promised land of Champions League football and Scudetto titles. After six and a half years' worth of purgatory, the Nerazzurri will, the logic goes, finally have a sergeant major able to instill both...

Yuto Nagatomo slips to hand Inter Milan defeat against Napoli

Mon, 1 May 2017 02:53:00 PDT

Inter lost a drab home game against Napoli on Sunday evening, thanks to a catastrophic Yuto Nagatomo slip-up. Having just about held on for most of the first half, the Nerazzurri saw all their work go up in flames when the Japan defender clumsily flicked the ball right into Jose Callejon's path. Napoli hit the post, but once the deadlock was broken, Stefano Pioli's men showed their limits going forward and never created a dangerous chance to get back in the game. Positives It wasn't a landslide....

Inter Milan mentality criticised but Stefano Pioli's issues are simpler

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 03:27:00 PDT

Inter Milan have dropped to seventh in Serie A following just two wins in eight. Inter are coming off a nightmare run of games ahead of Sunday's clash with Napoli, failing to win in over a month and somehow allowing half-time leads of 2-0 and 2-1 to turn into a 2-2 draw against AC Milan and a 5-4 defeat to Fiorentina. In the endless post-mortems which followed the collapse in Florence, Inter were accused of lacking grit and a united mentality, but the squad is full of grinders. Gary Medel isn't called The Pitbull for nothing, Danilo D'Ambrosio delivered an impassioned speech...
