And Pirlo scored the most easiest looking free kick the way he kicked it I've ever seen.

Torino winger Alessio Cerci has sought to distance himself from reports linking him with a January move to England.

Speculation continues to suggest that the 26-year-old is a top target for a number of Premier League sides.

Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur have all been credited with holding an interest in the Italy international.

Representatives from those title-chasing outfits are said to have been in attendance to cast an eye over Cerci in Monday's 2-2 draw with Nigeria at Craven Cottage.

They will have left convinced that he could be a useful addition to their ranks, but no discussions regarding a winter switch have been held as yet.

"It's not true. I haven't spoken to anyone," Cerci told Tuttosport.

Torino are also keen to prevent the rumour mill from spinning out of control, with the Serie A outfit in no mood to discuss a sale.

President Urbano Cairo told TMW: "I haven't received any calls from England for Cerci, even if I read in the newspapers that there is interest from British clubs.

"As far as I am concerned, there's no truth to it. Will he stay at Torino in January? Of course."

Great weekend all round. :thumbup:

And Pogba scored a volley from outside the box in off the post. :cool: Not sure why he's not warming the bench of playing in the reserve team though.


Damn shame we're not getting to pay his agent £500k every 6 games he plays, or whatever it is, either :rolleyes:

Like true believers, they waited for their saviour to return. Candles were lit, prayers were said and songs sung in His honour. Somebody even hung a banner outside the Colosseum, prematurely celebrating His arrival. "Welcome back, captain!!!" it read.
Francesco Totti had barely returned to training following the hamstring injury he suffered in mid-October but Roma fans were placing all their faith in him to lift their team out of a rut. In seven weeks without their captain, they had lost their grip on first place, falling behind Juventus after a run of four consecutive draws. They had scored only five goals in six games since Totti was sidelined. Before that, they had 22 in nine.
Of course, this was more than just a coincidence. Totti had been in exceptional form to start the campaign, unpicking defences in ways that only he knows how – with a perfectly timed flick here or a no-look pass there. Already, he had six assists and three goals. Bluntly put, neither of his replacements – Adem Ljajic or Marco Borriello – could offer the same quality when deployed as the central forward in Rudi Garcia's 4-3-3.
Even so, Roma's dry run had to do with more than just one player. Gervinho had also been absent for the first two of those drawn games, in which his pace and direct running were sorely missed. There had been a dip, furthermore, in the performances of several others, from the veteran Maicon through to the young Alessandro Florenzi. Some journalists suggested tiredness might be a factor, even though this team did not have European competition to worry about.
Amid the speculation, however, another absentee seemed to have been forgotten. Mattia Destro had been unavailable since the start of the season as he continued his rehabilitation from a lengthy injury saga that began when he tore the meniscus in his left knee back in January. While the rest of Rome was fretting about Totti's status, the 22-year-old was finally closing in on a first-team return of his own.
Destro had come back from this injury once already, playing in seven games for Roma between April and May of this year. He even started the Coppa Italia final against Lazio, before being called up to represent Italy at the Under-21 European Championship over the summer.
Here is where the story gets a little murky. Destro made three appearances for Italy during the group stage of that tournament but did not feature in the knockout phase. By the time he returned to Rome, his injury had flared up again and a very public back and forth began over who was to blame for this development.
Giuliano Cerulli, the surgeon who had operated on Destro's knee after the initial injury, accused the national team's medical staff of making the forward do too much, too soon – a slightly curious claim given that he had already played those seven games for Roma. Angelo De Carli, doctor for Italy's Under-21 side, rejected such assertions, insisting that the player had suffered no new injury while playing for the Azzurrini.
Others pointed the finger at Destro himself, asserting that he had put on weight during his time out and that this was placing an additional strain on the damaged knee. The validity to such claims is open to debate but one way or another the striker's condition had become a cause for concern. Some feared this injury might derail his career altogether.
That would have been a cruel blow to a player who was only just getting started. Signed by Roma to replace Fabio Borini in the summer of 2012, Destro was touted as one of the most promising young talents on the peninsula. Still only 21 years old at the time, he had scored 12 Serie A goals for Siena in the preceding season – the most by an Italian player of that age since Roberto Bettega in 1970-71.
Destro's first season in Rome, though, had been a frustrating one. Even before the injury, he had failed to shine under Zdenek Zeman. Although he finished the season with seven goals, more had been expected.
It was understandable, then, that fans should be so much more preoccupied with the condition of Totti before Sunday's game against Fiorentina. This was a fixture they needed to win in order to stay in touch with Juventus at the top of the table. The Bianconeri had beaten Livorno two days earlier to move temporarily six points clear in first place.
During Roma's initial run of 10 consecutive wins to start the season, many pundits had sought to qualify their success by insisting the real test of their quality would be how they reacted to an eventual first defeat. Instead, it was the first draw that everyone should have been worrying about, the Giallorossi following up a creditable enough 1-1 scoreline away to Torino with rather more disappointing stalemates against Sassuolo, Cagliari and Atalanta.
They were headed towards another such result – or perhaps even worse – when Destro was introduced in the 57th minute on Sunday. Roma had scored first at the Stadio Olimpico, Gervinho eluding defenders wonderfully to tee up Maicon in the seventh minute but Fiorentina equalised through Juan Vargas and seemed to have the upper hand early in the second half. Moments after Destro came on, Alberto Aquilani missed a golden opportunity to put the Viola 2-1 up.
Instead, Roma's substitute would strike at the other end. Once again it was Gervinho who provided the assist, cutting the ball back from the goalline towards his team-mate on the edge of the six-yard box. But it was Destro whose instincts took over, timing his run perfectly at the near post, despite having a defender quite literally hanging off his shirt. The striker duly ripped the said item of clothing off as he tore away to celebrate under the curva.
Destro was on the pitch for only 32 minutes – being taken back off by Garcia in the final minutes as the manager sought to reinforce his midfield following a red card for Miralem Pjanic. The striker did not seem to mind. He had done what he came here to do.
"I've been out for so long, I couldn't take it any more," said Destro. "Scoring today was stupendous, even if the most important thing for me was just to get back on the pitch. I have suffered through this long absence, it is wonderful to be able to put this ugly time behind me."
Garcia, likewise, was delighted. The manager had taken a great interest in Destro's rehabilitation, arranging entire friendlies just so the player would have an opportunity to play in match conditions before this comeback. Now he hopes to be repaid in goals. Roma, even with Totti in the side, were arguably still missing a player of Destro's characteristics – a natural scorer who thrives inside the 18-yard box.
His goal on Sunday served to reinforce the impression of Roma as Juventus's chief title contenders, cutting the champions' lead back down to three points. And perhaps it might even have eased the weight of expectation on Totti, who watched happily from the bench on Sunday. Destro's goal helped to ensure his hamstring would have another eight days to recover, before the trip to Milan on 16 December.
Talking points
• Napoli are also supposed to battle for the Scudetto this season, but slipped to eight points behind Juventus this weekend. That is partly just a consequence of the champions' tremendous recent form (right now they are on pace to hit an improbable 101 points this season), and, as already mentioned, there is a lot of season left ahead of us. But recent results have been troubling for Rafael Benítez, with just one win (and three defeats) in his team's last five games across all competitions. Napoli have conceded 17 goals in Serie A – more than three times as many as Roma – and blew both a 2-0, then a 3-2 lead against Udinese on Saturday, eventually drawing 3-3. The Partenopei were jeered by their fans at full-time and Benítez has been criticised for both his team selection and tactical rigidity. Suffice to say, there is not much optimism to be found ahead of Wednesday's Champions League meeting with Arsenal, which Napoli would likely need to win by three goals to progress.

• Inter also drew 3-3 this weekend, having twice trailed at home to Parma. It has been a puzzling season so far for the Nerazzurri, who have lost just once but who draw far too often. It was suggested in the wake of this latest setback that such results might even impact their ability to upgrade the squad in January – since new owner Erick Thohir might not be inclined to spend if he thinks his team will not make it into the Champions League anyway.

• Sampdoria's improvement under Sinisa Mihajlovic continued with a 2-0 win at home to Catania – their first under the new manager after a pair of draws. It was capped with a really rather nice finish across goal from Manolo Gabbiadini, too.

• Also excellent was Mario Balotelli's free-kick to rescue a point for Milan away to Livorno. The fact that Milan needed to rescue a point away to Livorno, however, is obviously rather less encouraging for the Rossoneri. There are many who believe that a change of manager is required to get this team moving in the right direction again, but owner Silvio Berlusconi mostly seems to think that Milan just need a bigger injection of his own winning personality. "Last year, after a disastrous first half of the season, I got more involved with Milan and we grabbed third place," he noted. True enough, although at the corresponding point last year the Rossoneri were still only 14 points off first place and 10 off third. This year those gaps are up to 22 and 14 points respectively.

• Vladimir Petkovic's position as manager of Lazio is looking even more precarious after his team suffered its sixth defeat of the season. There is no shame in losing to this Torino side (although there ought to be plenty of shame for Alessio Cerci after this shabby excuse for a corner) who look capable of challenging for a European spot this season, but Lazio have now won just once in their last 10 Serie A games. "I know that when you lose games, your job is at risk," acknowledged Petkovic afterwards.

Results: Bologna 0-2 Juventus, Livorno 2-2 Milan, Roma 2-1 Fiorentina, Verona 2-1 Atalanta, Cagliari 2-1 Genoa, Inter 3-3 Parma, Napoli 3-3 Udinese, Sassuolo 0-1 Chievo, Sampdoria 2-0 Catania, Torino 1-0 Lazio

Serie A's leading scorer, Giuseppe Rossi, is waiting to discover whether he has suffered a third serious injury to his right knee after limping out of Fiorentina's 1-0 win over Livorno.
Fiorentina said the extent of the damage to the Italy star, who is in the frame to play against England in the World Cup group game this summer, will be known on Monday. Rossi was taken off after limping away from a rough challenge by the Livorno defender Leandro Rinaudo in the 71st minute.
Rossi, 26, has come storming back this season after recovering from successive anterior cruciate ligament injuries which effectively cost him two years of his career.
Rinaudo was booked and was lucky not to be sent off after he argued with the referee and his opponents, leading to pushing among the players.
"We are all worried," the Fiorentina coach, Vicenzo Montella, told reporters. "It appeared to be an intentional foul. I don't think he wanted to injure the player but he certainly wanted to stop him.
"I expected that Rinaudo would have apologised which you usually do when you commit that sort of foul."
The American-born striker's troubles began when he suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury while playing for Villarreal in a Spanish league match against Real Madrid in 2011.
He fought desperately to be fit in time for Euro 2012 only to injure the knee again in training the following April, causing him to miss the tournament.
Villarreal sold him to Fiorentina at the start of this year and he finally made his comeback against Pescara in May, playing 27 minutes in the final match of last season. His performances this season, with 14 Serie A goals, earned him an Italy recall.
"Rinaudo didn't apologise and even argued with the referee in an undignified manner," said the Fiorentina owner, Andrea Della Valle. "He should look at the replays and reflect on his behaviour."
The injury overshadowed the win which lifted Fiorentina to joint third alongside Napoli, who host Sampdoria on Monday, on 36 points from 18 games.


Hope he's ok.

Arguably the most talented striker we've had in the academy in my life time he just wasn't suited to the physical nature of the PL. His goal scoring record in our reserve teams was ridiculous fantastic finisher if he'd been around maybe 2-3 seasons ago when Welbeck was coming through he might have actually got a chance in the first team.

Would be a massive shame if he missed out on another big international tournament for England.

You mean Italy? :p

Juve battered Roma 3-0 to go top by 8pts, Roma's first defeat of the season.

Can only see the gap getting bigger if anything.

Was obviously half asleep when I did that :wink:

Juve looking pretty formidable it's a real shame they ballsed up their CL campaign as they could've had some good matches in the knockout round as they are a good side probably not quite there yet in terms of being able to win it but they are certainly one of the top sides in Europe.

Juve vs Roma on BT Sport directly after the Utd game was like a "look what you could've won" reveal on Bullseye as De Rossi lined up against Pogba :lol: I didn't watch the game but apparently Vidal was very good again can't believe we even get linked to him like Juve are going to sell him.

Roma boss Rudi Garcia has revealed they are poised to beat Napoli to the signing of Michel Bastos.

Napoli were leading the race to sign Bastos on loan from Al Ain, but Roma have hijacked the deal and the winger is set to move to the Stadio Olimpico.

Garcia knows all about Bastos having worked with the Brazilian during his time in charge of Lille and he has confirmed talks are at an advanced stage to bring the 30-year-old to the Italian capital.

"It's not done yet, but negotiations are at an advanced stage," said Garcia. "He is a versatile player, which is what interests me. He can play on the right or left, has a strong shot, good technique and can also play left-back, so we are covered in many different areas.

"I have been tracking this player since he left Lille, going through Lyon, Schalke and Al Ain.

"I always spoke to him and knew this was a possibility for us. Above all, he was very eager to come back to Europe, so I am happy.

"He's not just a player of a top level, but also a good man."

The Sun reporting that Vucinic has moved to Inter with Guarin going in the opposite direction not seen it reported anywhere as confirmed.

Probably a good move for both clubs as Juve obviously didn't want to keep Vucinic and Inter need a striker seems a bit odd that it's being reported as a straight swap deal but this is Italian football.

I saw somewhere earlier that the Inter fans have stopped this? Not looked into it, but I hope Vucinic does leave. Giovinco can do one as well. :D

Just watched the Coppa Italia match Roma v Juve on Sky, Conte made 7 changes and paid the price, lost 1-0.

Don't understand why you'd make that many changes in a cup quarter final, against the second best team in the league away, whilst you yourselves are walking the league.

Very poor game as well, Juve had a goal ruled out because the balled was deemed to have gone out of play, but didn't look like it did.

AC Milan v Udinese is on live tomorrow, Lazio v Napoli next Wednesday. There's a game this Thursday as well but I've forgot who it is.

Weird that Sky have picked up Italian Cup football guess they're really getting worried about BT taking all the football

I saw the Inter Ultras had issued a statement on the Guarin bit but not sure if it has stopped it going through. Not a good start for the new owner really

Juventus playmaker Andrea Pirlo was delighted to be named 2012-13 Player of the Year in Serie A by his peers.

The Italy international received the award for the second consecutive year after another impressive campaign with the Turin giants.

"It's very important to receive the award because the ones that vote are my colleagues (the Italian Players' Association (AIC)," the 34-year-old Pirlo said to Gazzetta dello Sport. "This is the best."

Juve again dominated the awards as they were voted the team of the year, while Antonio Conte won the coach award after leading the club to back-to-back league titles.

"I thank my players," Conte said. "They are great men and fantastic athletes.

"We want to continue to shine.

"So far we have done extraordinary things in Serie A.

"We have to be patient in order to win in Europe."

Four Juve players - Andrea Barzagli, Giorgio Chiellini, Arturo Vidal and Pirlo- were included in the team of the season.

Moreover, Juve striker Domenico Berardi, who is playing for a second straight season on loan at Sassuolo, was voted the best player in Serie B.

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba was surprisingly left out of the Serie A team, with his Juve team-mates Vidal and Pirlo named alongside Fiorentina's Borja Valero.

AC Milan's Mario Balotelli was chosen as one of the best strikers in the league with Udinese's Antonio Di Natale and former Paris Saint-Germain forward Edison Cavani, who was last season's top scorer in Serie A with Napoli.


I guess the calender year aspect might explain Pogba's absence as it's really this season he's stepped up another level last year he was still finding his feet a bit.

Fiorentina overturned a first-leg deficit in their Coppa Italia semi-final as a 2-0 win over Udinese took them into the final.

Antonio Di Natale and Luis Muriel had given Udinese a 2-1 win in last week's encounter, but Juan Manuel Vargas' goal for Fiorentina was to prove crucial.

Manuel Pasqual opened the scoring after 14 minutes of the second leg, firing high inside the near post with his left foot to level the aggregate score.

And the deciding goal came just after the hour mark when Juan Guillermo Cuadrado struck from outside the penalty area.

Udinese became desperate in their pursuit of an equaliser, with first Emmanuel Badu and then Maurizio Domizzi earning red cards during a fraught eight minutes of stoppage time.

The Viola will face Napoli or Roma in May's final, with the capital club taking a 3-2 advantage into Wednesday's second leg of their semi-final.

Lazio have threatened legal action against those who have questioned the legitimacy of the age of their 17-year-old Cameroonian player Joseph Minala.

The Italian side stated that his birth certificate is "absolutely legitimate".

Lazio added: "We reserve the right to take action against those responsible for the protection of the good name of the company and the footballer."

The midfielder also issued a statement via the club's website denying he told an African website he was 41.

He said: "I have read the alleged statements posted on the website senego.net in which it says I confessed my real age which was different to what was stated in my [official] documents.

"They are false statements that have been attributed to me by people who do not know."

Minala joined the Rome club last summer and recently played for them in the Viareggio Cup youth tournament.

Italian journalist Max Evangelista, who reports on Lazio's youth team, said any suggestions the player was 41 were "unbelievable".

He said Minala had scored five goals and made six assists this season for Lazio's youth team, who are the holders of the national title.

"He is a very reactive player. You could never say he is 41," he told BBC World Service." When you are surrounded by players running like devils around you, in my opinion it is very tough to be 41. He runs, he is fast. It is unbelievable news, that is why Lazio felt the need to deny it.

"He was in an orphanage for a couple of years in Cameroon, then he had to face the situation here by himself. It is a controversial story because the face of the player is not that of a 17-year-old guy.

"On his face there is sign of his previous life, which was not a happy life. That is it. Period. There is nothing else that makes you think he is 41.

"He is a kid with the head of a kid. He only wants to play football as he did on the road years ago barefoot. That is the only thing he is focused on and being a talent because he is a talent."

Juve 11pts clear at the top after giving Milan a spanking at the San Siro.

Tevez scored a brilliant goal.

Pogba had a really poor game.

Not so sure what spanking you are talking about Milan raped them for full 43 minutes and should have been 2-3 up until llorente scored.Had Milan taken their chances would have been all diff game together.Tevez is class act.

It was a spanking, Juve toyed with Milan making them think they had some hope, was like watching a cat play with a mouse. :cool:

Seriously though, it wasn't only Milan that missed great chances either, before Milan turned up in the match Juve missed 2/3 great chances of their own.

32 sul campo. :p

God I hate watching Tevez play he's got even better since he left us.

I know him and his agent were dodgy as f*ck but I can't believe we dropped him for Berbatov.

The man is a big game player who scores big goals in big games.
