Lazio – Catania, preview

vs.    We face Catania this Sunday in much improved psychological state after that win in mid-week away against Chievo Verona. With Foggia and Mauri back after both serving 1 match ban, I doubt Delio Rossi will surprise is as he did against Chievo with that asntonishing line up with Lichtsteiner and Kolarov in midfield. This …

Chievo 1-2 Lazio: priceless 3 points finally arrive

Like the majority of you, Lazio fans who live abroad, I was unable to watch this match. Live streaming for some reasons did not work and I had to settle for match comments from an italian site. Nevertheless, it is much better that we did not watch the match and we win than the oposite, …

Chievo – Lazio, preview

VS.  Only three days after that defeat at home against Napoli, we return on the pitch against always a hard to beat team like Chievo Verona is.

A no-title post

Lazio – Napoli, preview

VS.     We face a hi-flying Napoli this Sunday at Olimpico, in what should be, in my view, a thrilling match as both teams play attacking football and are currently ( with Catania and Udinese) the pleasant surprises of this new Serie A season. Less then one week after fully recovering, Tommaso Rocchi has …

A fiasco at Bologna: 3-1

What I considered unthinkable just happened. We were thrashed by Bologna 3-1 in a match we should forget ASAP. We were 3-0 after only 26 minutes and never managed to get back into the match. The team that was causing hvoc to oponents so far in Serie A was unrecognazible this afternoon to say the …

Finally the break is over and we return to normal Seria A matches. This week, more precisely on Sunday at 15;00 CET we face Bologna away. The host team has won only the openning match of the campaign against AC Milan and are struggling ever since result-wise. Actually, they do not play bad, but somehow …

Will the “tridente” work ?

This is the question that has been bothering me for the last couple of days. The return of captain Tommaso Rocchi against Bologna may see Delio Rossi use the so long awaited tridente: which in practice means to play at the same time Rochi, Zarate and Padev. Playing the three of them at the same …

[:happy and excited + smiley] Also, due to club inactivities because of International qualifications, there is very little to write these days regarding clubs.
