    Genoa C.F.C is one of the lesser known clubs from Italy’s top flight soccer division, Serie A.  Their last significant title came back in 1937, when they won their only Italian Cup.  And this season they finished in 17th out of 20 teams, barely avoiding relegation.  That would be one of the reasons why the […]

    With the NHL Playoffs well underway, most people seem convinced of the fact that the road to the Stanley Cup may be the most grueling in sports.  And while that statement is awfully tough to argue with, one could suggest that the road to the Scudetto in Italian Serie A soccer can be just as […]

    When it comes to the game of soccer, the only thing better than the sight of a beautiful goal it the sound of the great commentary that of often accompanies it.  That was the case during yesterday’s Coppa Italia semi-final match between Inter Milan and Roma. With the game tied 0-0, Dejan Stankovic’s strike in […]

    Chievo’s Marcolini Shows Some Range With 45-meter Goal (Video)

    It isn’t often that a misplayed ball just inside your own half of center turns into a goal less than two seconds later, but then again, there aren’t many players with the accuracy and range of Chievo’s Michele Marcolini. During yesterday’s Italian Serie A action, Marcolini was on the receiving end of an errant pass […]

    Talk about confusion.  I can only imagine that is what fans at the San Siro were faced with after watching what appeared to be players from AC Milan and Bari taking the pitch for warm-ups and performing some rather strange acts, whether it was dancing, swimming, limboing, or playing frisbee. Despite bearing a striking resemblance […]

    Wayne Rooney’s Spectacular Goal vs. Samuel Eto’o ‘s Incredible Miss (Videos)

    This past weekend in European club soccer action brought us some incredible highlights and some rather embarrassing lowlights. Most notable among the highlights was the unbelievable overhead strike from Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney, which many are now referring to as the “wonder goal.”  Not only was it a wonderful display of execution from the Man […]

    It looks like hockey isn’t the only sport with a sucker-punch problem. Players from Inter and Bari did their best rendition of Jordan Staal vs. Brandon Prust during Serie A action on Thursday, with Inter’s Cristian Chivu playing the role of Staal and Bari’s Marco Rossi playing Prust.  Following an Inter free kick, Chivu was […]

    The Most Violent Soccer Goal Celebration Ever? (Video)

    Soccer goal celebrations are supposed to be a time when teammates can get together and bask in the glory of their accomplishment by either exchanging some friendly taps and shakes, or by putting together some choreographed moves for the fans.  But in Italy, it appears as though they have their own way of doing things. […]

    Spectacular Goal And Celebration FAIL! From Ibrahimovic (Video)

    We will start with the goal, which was perhaps the best this weekend’s slate of soccer action had to offer.  With the score tied nil-nil near the end of the first half, AC Milan’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic continued his stellar play by receiving the ball just outside the 6-yard box, and flicked it up before scissor-kicking […]

    Sunday’s Serie A battle between Inter Milan and Chievo Verona may not have shared a similar magnitude to the 2006 World Cup final match between Italy and France, but there was one shocking similarity between these two games.  For that similarity, we turn to the 37th minute, where Samuel Eto’o was looking to channel some […]
