Serie A 2012/13, match week 6 what is worth to see


The next match week, the one which starts tomorrow is the most interesting so far and by far. First of all there is the mother of all the rivalry and of the arguments in the Serie A, the terrific Juventus – AS Roma.

Parma AC Milan 18:00
Juventus Roma 20:45
Inter Milan Fiorentina 20:45
Tomorrow there are two good matches, Parma is a team well-trained by Donadoni and AC Milan is still now in trouble, whatever its management says. The Parma’s manager, I’m sure, will put up a tough match for his former team (as a player), there is the question about the third match in 7 days and how a little club like Parma will face it, but that’s true for every team on the pitch. At 20,45 the big match, between two teams that really hate each other, Zeman during the 90s show at the world of football that Juventus were doping its players (Vialli, Ferrara, Del Piero, etc); that was a shock, later the magistrature found that the Juventus was up to no good, but at that time doping was not a serious crime and the prescription saved its management, still today Juventus is angry for that scandal, and obviously not with the former president, or the doctors, or every one else, no, with Zeman who make the scandal explode…that’s Italy.
Anyway Juventus is the favourite to get the 3 points tomorrow, but Roma is like his manager absolutely unpredictable and tomorrow could really happen anything.
Next day there is only one interesting match, the last one between Inter and Fiorentina, the Tuscany team has made since now a great championship, they’re a real surprise, good players and a good manager, but I think that on Sunday they’ll pay the effort to try to beat Juventus on Wednesday, so in my opinion Inter with a larger number of skilled players is the favourite.

Who cares about Pescara’s comeback in Serie A?

Pescara is a medium town in the hearth of Italy, it doesn’t have a great football history, having played just 5 times in the Serie A until now. The company had failed in 2008 and then was rebuilt in a lower series. They’re nearly 20 years since their last appearance in the maximum championship. But last Sunday with their win at Genova against Sampdoria, they’ve reached it again.

I’m not a Pescara fan and I’m not a big passionate of lower Italian championship, but in Italy we have a coach who is more a faith than a man. His name is Zeman. He is a natural enemy of Juventus and its fans, because of he was the man who spoke about the illicit practices in that team when no-one was brave enough, about drugs abuse. He had paid for years that declaration, it was like a man with plague no-one would have hired him because of his powerful enemies, so he ended training in lower series.

But he is also the man who drove Foggia during the 90s to unbelievable targets, with team of unknown players.

And he is definitely the most offensive coach in Italy and maybe in the world (with Bielsa and Guardiola).

He allows young player to play, something unheard of, he always attacks, I can’t remember what was the match but in the 90s when he trained Foggia, during a match they were winning 4-0 at home, he made a substitution between a defender with another forward, he tied that match 4-4. But that has been the mentality for so many years.

He’s been seen as a guru for many Italians fan even if they do not support his team, because of his honesty, his attitude to attack and his spectacular way of playing football.

So even if Pescara is not a historical team or a great name, many Italians football fans celebrated its big achievement on the last Sunday.
