***Ufficiale Serie A 2018-19***

Recommended Posts

Boab

The new season starts this weekend so I thought a new thread would be a good idea rather than dredging up the old one.

A place where all fans of Calcio can air their thoughts and discuss the ups and downs of a typical Italian season.

A pretty sombre weekend in store with both games involving the Genovese clubs postponed after the terrible event there this week.

Milan v Genoa and Napoli v Sampdoria both off, to be arranged for a later date.

There was talk of the whole card being postponed but a " compromise " has been reached by the authorities.

Ronaldo looks like he will play in Juve's opener, away to Chievo..5pm Sat, BST. 

With some more moves afoot...Modric to Inter ?...it could be another cracker in store this season.

My initial thoughts are Juve will be too strong again but I have a feeling Inter may run them close, if they can hold it together. Roma and Napoli, i'm not so sure.

Parma are back, a welcome addition, but with a points deduction ! Would we have it any other way ?

???

Ronaldo 7/1 for a hat-trick, 

2/1 for a double

Nice story this morning about Marchisio on his departure from Juve. 25 years playing for his hometown club. Some achievement and the thing of dreams.

Between Juve and Inter this season. I think Roma and Napoli aren't as strong as last season and will be in a fight with Lazio  and maybe Milan for the CL places. Can't wait for tomorrow.

Ah, Il Principino...the little prince.

A, quite frankly, wonderful player !

Although he was Juve, admired by anyone who loves their football played with grace and flair.

As ever hoping Napoli can’t get a hold of that league title! Can’t see it this season though, unfortunately. 

 

Juve will walk it I think.

My thoughts as well.

 

I hope I'm wrong, but I can't see a top 4 finish for Napoli this season. It was all about the Sarri system for this group of players. I am a total pessimist though.

Forza Calcio!

Love the fact that we have a dedicated thread.

 

I am rally looking forward to another season. Undoubtedly the 'CR7 arrival' will add a bit more worldwide focus.

It's time.

 

I have subscribed to Eleven Sports and I am quite impressed so far.

Albeit, waiting on information about a dedicated tv channel is a PIA.

I have no idea of who the (co)commentary team are going to be either...hopefully they are knowledgeable and add value. ...James Richardson would be a bonus.

 

Internazionalle have bought well and may put up a stern challenge to Juve.

 

Would love a 'Leicester' scenario but can't see beyond Juve again.

 

Planning at least one trip to the North again this season ....maybe another to Naples.

 

Hopefully lots of chat on here as well....over 400 posts last season.

Apologies. Error in OP.

It's Fiorentina v Sampdoria that's postponed, not Napoli.

It certainly seems as though Seria A is coming back around to being one of the top leagues in terms of prestige. 

Really looking forward to this season, Inter and Juve looking strong, hopefully Roma and Napoli can sustain a challenge and lets see AC rising back to the surface.

Forza Inter.

 

Good signings so far and kept everyone we needed to keep, most confident of a good season I've been in a while. :)

 

Still think the team needs a Modric/Rafinha though to win the title.

Juve have signed Can, Ronaldo and Costa. Add to that Bonucci coming back....they will stroll Serie A. 

 

Forza La Vecchia Signora!!! Been a Juve ''follower'' for a long time, visited the Delle Alpi numerous times. Horrible old place. Yet to try the new stadium, looks very nice though.

 

 

That new badge, however...:jj_facepalm:

What on earth happened in the last five mins there? It went from 2-2 to 2-3 and back and forth several times on bet365 and has now stayed at 2-3! ?

Juve scored but was ruled out on VAR for a foul. Then they scored again about a minute later.

So the game was meant to be live on Facebook but they ****ed up that as well.

 

Surely some sort of regulator has to have a look at this outfit. Can’t make up the shambles so far.

Not sure tbh :lol: Seemed a bit soft to rule it out. The keeper was pretty much knocked out cold which is why it took so long.

 Not so sure it's their fault.

I was unaware, until today, that it was the UK that blocked the first 15 mins of a 5pm game. They actually had a thing on the screen saying Eleven Sports disagreed with it.

Would say it’s pretty well known the English FA have that law in place. Why they are always goin after rogue pubs who show games from abroad streams.

 

And still no tv deal is just ridiculous. Obviously sky/bt not happy with their initial prices. 

 

Can see setanta 2.

The 3pm rule has even affected sky in the past tbh, I remember a few La Liga games - even a Barca/Real game a couple seasons ago that they didn’t pick up until about 20 minutes in.

 

They really should have known, whether they disagree with it or not it’s their job to know their market.

 Not trying to defend Eleven overly but they had the pre-match build up right to KO and audio for the first 15, something BT never had for 5pm KOs.

Need someone from the FA to explain why 5 to 5.15 is not allowed as I can't fathom it out.

 

3pm to 5pm, aye, I get that but this ?

Not too uncommon for games to be delayed for injuries or otherwise so guess it gives them a little leeway.

Napoli were bang average until about 30 minutes in then 'normal service' resumed ...think they are a bit short in midfield to win scudetto.

The most annoying thing is them putting the score up on their on demand page. Went to watch the highlights of Lazio - Napoli not knowing the score.

Aye, seen that. When I went to the home page, I never scrolled down and clicked the Barca link as it came up. That never had the score on it but, aye, pish really.

Seems many are unhappy already as the Juve game crashed for some people.

Not good.

Roma always make it tense. Great first game win. Ropey at the back.

 

Also shite getting notifications from football apps about goals etc 30-60 seconds before play. Another reason this format won’t last long.

Fabulous goal

 

Maybe could do a job if Lafferty leaves ?

 

I turn off notifications if watching any game live ... it’s always ahead... even on BBC.

(I read that the delay will reduce once they are happy the infrastructure can comfortably support demand)

Anyone know about their logged in account limit? Seen boys on twitter says up to 4 at any one time but their faq states one.

 

Would pay for a season split 4 ways but not on my todd.

We had two logged in with the weeks trial but wondered when paying they flick a switch?

 

If can get 4 then it’s quite good value for the year.
