Which Rossi do you think of? Giuseppe is still in Villarreal (liga adelante in Spain).

Cavani
Di Natale
Jovetic
Milito

Giuseppe, I don't know why I thought he played in Italy...

I find the caliber of the league has gotten a lot worse... Due to the gutting of AC..

Hehe, he's been injuried for a very long time now unforunately. If he had played in Serie A and been healthy I would easily have put him in the top 5.. such an amazing player.

In the Roma -Palermo match Destro comes on as 2nd half sub, soon gets booked for a rash tackle, then a few minutes later goes on to score his first goal for the club and celebrates by starting to take his shirt off...oops, second yellow and he's sent off.

Also watched the 18-year old Dybala for the first time for half an hour or whatever he was on the pitch in the 2nd half.

Seemed to have a very good first touch, good movement in finding empty space thus making himself available for teammates' passes. Also seemed to have a good short passing ability and eye for a through pass creating goal scoring opportunities for others.

Pretty good technique and dribbling as well, although didn't look that speedy. Timid in jumping as well, didn't get a good idea about his shooting or scoring ability. About the only shot he took was a shot from distance which went way over and off target.

It's going to be very hard for him to get back to his form. Knee injuries for soccer players are career-killers.

Kid scored a brace today.

Lamela scored as well making him joint top scorer with El Shaarawy. Yet the coach takes him off as half time when they were down 2 goals? Erik has world class talent he won't last long in Roma.

Juve destroyed Pescara yesterday 6-1 with a hat-trick for Quagliarella.

2 beauty goals were scored especially the last goal for Quag.

And Milan loses again.

Why not? Roma are a big club with title ambitions, they're not going to let go of a player of Lamela's quality without a fight.

Watching Zeman managin the club this season I don't think it's in his priority to win. He thinks of himself as one of the top coaches in the world but he cant even handle any situation properly. It's unexplainable that De Rossi is having a terrible season.

Took Milan a whole 4 minutes to go down a goal at Napoli.

Big comeback to tie it 2-2.

I had big doubts on El Shaarawy's legitimacy as a hot prospect but this guy is proving he's going to be a star.

Inter v Cagliari was a great one to watch. Either team could have pulled out the win, but Cagliari got very lucky towards the final 8 minutes.

I don't watch Serie A regularly but SES has impressed me more when I've seen him this year than Pato has at any point, even if we ignore all of Pato's injuries. That said they're different players, Pato's a guy who can lead the line while El Shaarawy's a supporting striker. For Milan's sack they need to hope that the two of them can play great together, cause while the midfield's solid, that defense is awful.

El Shaarawy is carrying a weak team on his shoulders, Pato never did much more than just score goals.

If he just keeps his head clear and focused on football we'll undoubtedly be talking about him as one of the best players, if not the best player in the world a few years from now.

High praise... I am very, very excited about him. He could save the Azzurri

It would be nice if in Canada we could watch Serie A. What a friggin' joke

SES. He can do much more on the field then Pato. Better play maker and free kick taker, showing he can score as well. Pato coming back from injury has pretty much been on the bench, I expect Milan to see if there are any buyers out there for him
