Player of the Match

Serie A Table

14 games in, 11 points clear. That about sums it up, to be perfectly honest. Lazio and the accursed AC Milan are struggling hugely, too, which I am enjoying!

UEFA Champions League Table

Celtic trolled Schalke to get to second place, but the key thing is we went 6-0-0 and topped our group by a full 10 points. I'm hoping the knockout stages will give me something to worry about. This is the world's best club competition, right?

Player of the Month

Philippe Coutinho takes home this prestigious award after racking up 4 goals and 2 assists in the 4 matches this month, great to have him back in top form!

Monthly Review

This month, we thrashed everybody and anybody that dared to come across our path. We managed 15 goals in 4 games, conceding a meager 1, and strengthened our lead atop every competition. Even more important, however, was the reemergence of the Brazilian old boys in Coutinho and Ademilson. The two internationals finally regained form after a tough season for both of them and look set to lead the line for a little while longer at least. We're not halfway through the season, and yet we look massive favorites to defend our crowns once more.
The lack of effort put into these updates is astonishing. I cannot believe this won a SOTM, it's an absolute disgrace. Forza Juve! ;)
nice update dude and was worth the wait!!! top and no one will be stopping you!
Hah! You got scored on by Torino!
Incorrect, the world's best club competition is the Milk Cup youth invitational tournament in Northern Ireland.
The Madridista: You mean to say you can't believe this story has *only won 1* story of the month ;)

jasonvilla4ever: Yeah we are on a roll, nobody can touch us :D

Rablador: Ahh how could I forget the prestigious Milk Cup?! :))
Good month there. I hope to see you win another Champions League
BayernAmerica: That would be a great way to close out Bergomi's club career indeed :)

Gino Peruzzi, Adam Maher, Andrea Poli, and Lorenzo Crisetig are out injured.

Inter Milan is amidst a serious injury crisis. Four major players are all out with injury for the upcoming Club World Cup Championship; Gino Peruzzi, Adam Maher, Andrea Poli, and Lorenzo Crisetig. These four players are all important first teamers and will sorely be missed by their side not only for the Club World Cup but for any matches afterward that they miss.

Adam Maher is projected to be the longest one out. Suffering from a torn groin muscle that has already ruled him out for a week, the Dutch midfielder is set to miss another month of football in recovery. Thanks to the emergence of Rogerio, his absence may be covered, but without Poli and Crisetig as well, there is very little depth.

Lorenzo Crisetig twisted his ankle two weeks ago and his been out since then and will likely miss the entirety of the next week, almost certainly ruling him out of the Club World Cup. The young Italian had become a key member of the squad of late and will rue this time on the sidelines, especially since the normal deep lying central midfielder, Andrea Poli, is also hurt.

Poli has been out for almost two weeks with a twisted knee, an injury he has suffered no less than five times in the last two years. Thankfully, the Italian international will be returning to full training by tomorrow at the earliest and could just be fit for the final, should the Nerazzurri reach that match.

Gino Peruzzi is the last man on the injury list. The Argentinian fullback has been out for three weeks with a pulled hamstring, but, like Poli, is set to return to training tomorrow and could return for the final. It has been a tough season for Peruzzi with his hamstring having missed three months early in the year when he tore it. Teenage starlet Omar Carrasco will likely continue to solidify his role in the first team in Peruzzi's absence.

Even with all of these major absences, Inter Milan is by far the heavy favorite to lift the Club World Cup yet again. The Nerazzurri take on Club America from Mexico in their semifinal to take on Corinthians in the final, who had beaten Soengnam 2-0 in the other semifinal. The match is tomorrow, with kickoff at 6:00 PM Korean time.
Damn...That's, really not good!:O
Well, they are some really good players, and to have them injured at the same time is not good at all.
AaronHJFT96: Captain Obvious strikes again! :P

BaggiesJames: Tis tough indeed.


As expected, last season's champions Inter Milan have defended their Club World Championship crown. The Nerazzurri, qualifying for the tournament after a dramatic UEFA Champions League win last year following Emerson Luiz's last-minute heroics, proved again that European football is still on top of the world.

In the semifinals, Inter were drawn against Mexican side Club America, who represented the CONCACAF region. Bergomi opted to give 18 year old goalkeeper Silvano Casella his career debut in goal, as well as starting fellow young Italian Simone Pierguidi alongside Luiz.

From first whistle to last, Inter dominated the match, amassing 60% of the possession and 15 shots to Club America's 3 (none of which were on target). 40 minutes into the game, Mattia Destro gave his side the lead by getting on the end of a delightfully swerving cross from Raheem Sterling, poking home at the far post.

Rogerio had a chance to make it 2-0 from the penalty spot after Coutinho was felled int he area, but put his effort wide just seconds before half time. Jan Kirchhoff eventually did stretch the advantage to 2 goals after he poked home a rebound from a corner kick, scoring his second goal in as many matches and his third on the season. The match finished 2-0.

Inter Milan went on to face Corinthians, from Brazil, in the final. Goalkeeper Casella was given his second start after keeping a clean sheet in game one (no, he didn't face a shot on target!), but Lorenzo Insigne, Ignazio Milici, Andrea Ranocchia, Lucas Digne, and Giuseppe Bellusci were introduced to the starting lineup.

The Nerazzurri were again in the ascendancy but were blanked in the first half. Just five minutes into the second, though, Lucas Digne broke down the left flank and whipped in a cross to the near post for Mattia Destro to nod into the back post for his second goal of the tournament.

In injury time, though, Corinthians snatched on back. Or so they thought. However, Kleber's stunning bullet header was waived off for offsides, though replays later showed the call to be incorrect, with Ranocchia keeping the striker onside. Midfielder Ralf was shown his second yellow card for protesting and was sent off. The match finished 1-0, and the captain Ranocchia hoisted the trophy.

"Obviously this isn't the Scudetto or the Champions League, but we want to win every trophy," said a content Bergomi after the match. "We put in some good performances, and we have again tasted success and whet our appetite for trophies. And believe me, more trophies are coming."
How many times have you used that picture from 2010 :P? Anyways, great update and a nice win to cap off another title to Inter.
