What a relief: finally 3 points

In case you did not watch this match, I`m telling you that we deserved a bit more than what seems to be a hardly fought win. Especially in the first half when we totally dominated Livorno who were playing worse then an amateur club. Jimenez was very inspired to play and I am glad he found a bit of his form and scored the winner.

Some players like Jimenez, Mandredini and Behrami were really inspired and motivated to play. They were all over the place and I must give credit to them. What stroke me more was a really poor performance by our main striker Tomasso Rocchi who has failed to score in the last 4-5 matches. Pandev, whom I criticized severely for his performances and engagement in the last month and a half was a bit better but far far from his best.

Milan`s draw against Fiorentina at home means we have returned to the 3rd spot and Palermo`s crush at home against rioma means were are almost mathematically sure of a CL spot.
