The International Champions Cup is just around the corner and we have two thriller games involving our Serie A teams.  There is Real Madrid, now coached by the ex AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti,  playing against Inter Milan on Saturday 26 July at the Memorial Stadium in Berkeley, California and  Real Madrid against AS Roma on Tuesday 29 July at the Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas, Texas.

Obviously, I had to ask Ancelotti during the press conference on Thursday 24 July how he feels about playing with Milan’s city rival team Inter and AS Roma in the United States.    Ancelotti having the advantage of knowing these two teams well and Italian football.  Inter coached by Walter Mazzarri and AS Roma coached by Rudi Garcia.

Let’s not forget that Ancelotti played for AS Roma from 1979 to 1987 making 171 appearances and scoring 12 goals.   Moreover, Ancelotti is highly admired by AC Milan fans not only because he played for the Rossoneri from 1987 to 1992, but because he also coached the team from 2001 to 2009.   Who could forget the glorious Ancelotti era when in 2003 AC Milan won the UEFA Champions League defeating Juventus and the 2003 Coppa Italia Final? Not me….

Ancelotti addressing the press in Spanish.

Ancelotti dijo: “Son dos equipos que han hecho buen mercado.  Tienen jugadores importantes y que en este periodo de la temporada creo que todo el mundo esta focalizando en prepararse bien para hacer una buena temporada.  El resultado no es tan importante. Creo que el  Inter ha cambiado mas que Roma.  Roma ha fichado un  jugador muy bueno como Juan Iturbe, mejorando la plantilla.  Creo que son dos partidos que nos gustan jugar, confrontarse, competir para tratar de ganar, naturalmente. “

English translation…..

Ancelotti said, “These are two teams that have done a good transfer market. They have important players. In this period of the season, I think everyone is focusing on preparing well for a good season. The result is not so important. I think  Inter has changed more than Roma. Roma have signed a very good player as [Juan] Iturbe, improving the squad.   I believe these are two games that we like to play, confront, and compete to try to  win, naturally.

The International Champions Cup is set!  Manchester United started their USA tour with a victory by winning the Chevrolet Cup. with an astonishing  result  7-0  against Los Angeles Galaxy  on Wednesday 23 July 2014 at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California.    This game was like a training for Manchester United who are playing against AS Roma this Saturday 26 July and on Tuesday 29 July against Inter Milan in the International Champions Cup.

I asked Coach Louis Van Gaal at the Press Conference about the upcoming games against AS Roma and Inter on whether he was familiar with their playing style.  LVG saying, “They are very good teams and probably better than LA Galaxy. We will analyze the teams.”  Van Gaal emphasizing that both Roma and Inter have very good players, but do not fear them.

You bet  it will be a special match against Inter because their ex captain  Nemanja Vidic transferred to Inter Milan in July.   Vidic played for Manchester United from 2006 until 2014 making 211 appearances and scoring 15 goals.

On tactics, now, we will see whether Van Gaal will continue with his  trademark 3-5-2 system against AS Roma and Inter.

Muntari commenting, “We talked with some of the Cosmos players, they were friendly and it is great to be here in America. Cosmos is one of the most legendary clubs in football history, made famous also because Pelé played here. Some of my teammates asked me, ‘Look at the badge, are they the Cosmos?’ and I answered yes. I’ve already been to the U.S, but this is the first time in New York. We are Milan and we do not want to repeat last season. This year we will focus only on the championship and want to go finish in the top places. Milan is a family, you can trust ‘her’. The club always gives you what you ask for, and so each of us feels compelled to give his best to pay back that trust. It  is good to know you are loved and to live in a place where you can find peace.”

Manchester United crushing, demolishing, humiliating Major League Soccer team Los Angeles Galaxy with a mega goleada 7 – 0 on Wednesday 23 July 2014.  Manchester United winning the Chevrolet Cup with an undisputed result not even giving a chance to  LA Galaxy to score the so-called honor goal.    I was carefully observing the game at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California because Man U will play against AS Roma this Saturday 26 July and on Tuesday 29 July against Inter Milan in the International Champions Cup.

Game attendance reaching 86,432, mostly Manchester United fans.  Red color just about everywhere.

As I was saying, its a mega smacking goleada, what a way to lose and what a way to win!!! LA Galaxy just under a mental block never finding the way out, not even Captain Landon Donovan saving the team. Donovan started as a sub.  Simply put, it was raining goal after goal  and LA Galaxy not having an umbrella …  a total torment called Manchester United.

One question, Did Bruce Arena study Manchester United????? You bet Manchester United Coach Louis Van Gaal did his homework and got a top result with flying colors.

“Morata out for 50 days. Roma for the Scudetto. Milan in USA. Conte closer to PSG. Roma vs Liverpool today,” Front Pages La Gazzetta dello Sport, Corriere dello Sport, and Tutto Sport from Wednesday 23 July 2014

Good morning my friends.  It’s a lovely morning and I am super awake.  Are you getting ready to go to work? school? vacation?   Allow me to share a virtual cup of coffee or tea to share the headlines from Italy.  Wow, cowabunga!!!! Let me tell you, two contradictory thoughts.  First, I was jumping out of joy when reading the headline about AC Milan coach Filippo Inzaghi saying that coach Antonio Conte is the ideal coach for the Italian National team.  Second, PUFF! BAM!  There it goes the other headline showering me just like a cold bucket because it says that Conte is closer to sign for Paris Saint Germain!!!!  Come on, both options are ok for Conte, but if you ask me, right now Italy need Conte to rebuild the team and have it ready for the UEFA Euro 2016 after the disaster performance in the FIFA World Cup.

Now, hold on your horses… another mega headline is that of Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo.  Why?  Hello, hello, hello, get this one… the new Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri telephoning Pirlo apparently to get back in good terms after Allegri practically discarded him as no good while he was coaching AC Milan.  ….   Well, maybe this whole thing might be just plain marketing.  Pirlo saying he has no problems with Allegri and that he is with him, but what about Allegri… Hum? Really?   Your take guys?

Roma and AC Milan are in the United States!  Roma will play tonight against Premier League team Liverpool for a friendly game.  The Roman gladiators are getting ready for their debut in the International Champions Cup against Manchester United on Saturday 26…. by the way, you can check my coverage on Man U training  in Los Angeles  and Real Madrid training, Tuesday 22 July preparing for Inter and AS Roma.

I am just loving the buildup towards the Serie A 2014 – 2015.  Headlines showing Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentis more than optimistic to win the Scudetto, but also AS Roma… Boy!  I cannot wait for the kickoff….  Honestly, I think both are strong candidates for the Scudetto…

After all the joyful news, there is a big black eye punch!!!! For who??? Well, it is for Juventus because their new signing Morata injured his knee and will be out at least for 50 days!  OUCH… problems for Allegri now to regroup …..
