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 …..
