Meireles to Fenerbahce... Really? With Lamps playing as bad as he is? He better mold Bertrand to fill that void, because Lamps is so past it.

wtf, Lampard is playing as a deep lying playmaker now and not past it at all, he just doesn't have the legs to bomb into the box every single time down the field so he picks and chooses his spots. Gerrard is past it, Lampard can keep playing a long ass time like Scholes or Pirlo, his conditioning is among the best in the world.

Oscar can play in Lampards spot, or Ramires or even Malouda. I'm abit worried now though, with Essien loaned out and Merieles sold, there aren't that many central midfielders on the first team.

Lampard has been terrible defensively in the first 3 games. That is what I am worried about. Its not him scoring that I'm concerned with.
Meireles for all his deficiencies as a player, and he does have a lot, was absolutely great at disrupting link up play, using his fouls and generally pestering the other team into making mistakes. A great man marker too.

Guess we'll be seeing a lot more of Oscar. Interesting to see what it means for Ramires as well. No thanks on Malouda. He can stay comfy on the bench.

Default Re: 2012-2013 English Premier League Thread (La Liga, Serie A, etc.)

For anyone who's interested, here's a quick overview at this year's Serie A.


(bolded: new players)

Juventus (unfortunately) is the clear cut favourite; they won last year's "scudetto" and they also improved some spots. The difference is that last year they didn't have any international tournament and that made their life easier. Now they have the CL, which will take a lot of energies. But their rivals are still not on par.

5-3-2

Buffon

Bonucci -- Barzagli -- Chiellini

Lichtsteiner - Marchisio - Pirlo - Vidal - Asamoah

Vucinic --- Giovinco/Matri





Napoli looks like the main rival for the scudetto, even though they lost Lavezzi to PSG without bringing in a top player, but rather a (very) promising youngster in Insigne. They renewed Cavani's contract for 5 years with a release clause of 60 millions.

3-5-1-1

De Sanctis

Campagnaro -- Cannavaro -- Aronica

Maggio - Behrami - Inler - Hamsik - Zuniga

--------- Insigne
Cavani ---





Inter has made a well thought out transfer session, getting rid of heavy contracts of some of their old "Triplete" guys. They are definitely more solid than last year, but they need to find consistency under young coach Stramaccioni.

4-3-2-1

Handanovic

Zanetti - Silvestre - Ranocchia - Pereira

Guarin -- Gargano -- Cambiasso

Sneijder ----- Palacio/Cassano
Milito



The above three teams look like the ones that can battle for the scudetto.
Next tier includes Milan, Roma, Lazio, Fiorentina and maybe Udinese. I'll present only Milan because it's the most well known internationally, and Fiorentina because, well, it's my team.



Milan seems to be in a steep decline. They sold Ibra and Thiago Silva for financial reasons, but they failed to replace them appropriately. Pazzini was brought in anyway, who is a striker that can ensure 12-15 goals per season if playing regularly. De Jong and Bojan Krkic are last minute additions, and while nice, they don't fill their needs. And Pato is always injured... he's so frail that he could break his hand by giving a high-five.

4-3-1-2

Abbiati

De Sciglio - Mexes/Bonera - Acerbi - Antonini

Montolivo - De Jong - Nocerino

Boateng

Pazzini ----- Robinho/El Shaarawy


Fiorentina have dramatically improved since last year's risked relegation. They brought in a young and very good coach in Montella who shapes his teams in order to control possession. Quality players were brought in such as Borja Valero, Pizarro, Aquilani, Mati Fernandez. And they rebuilt the defense completely. With this premises, it was possible to keep Jovetic from the lures of Man City (while the outher young star, Nastasic, was sold for a very good 16 million+Savic)...
The biggest problem is consistency (they are an almost completely new team) and the lack of a proper striker, since the ludicrous Berbatov affair ended up bad for Fiorentina. They called up old man Luca Toni to give a hand, but the starting 9 will be El Hamdaoui who is a bit unproven and not a real striker.


3-5-2

Viviano

Roncaglia -- G.Rodriguez -- Tomovic/Savic

Cuadrado - B.Valero - Pizarro - Aquilani - Pasqual

--------- Jovetic
El Hamdaoui ---




And here's Roma, which seems to be quite popular here on ISH :) and for a reason, they will surely be very entertaining to watch this year with Zeman as their coach.

4-3-3

Stekelenburg

Piris --- Burdisso --- Castan --- Balzaretti

De Rossi -- Tachtsidis/Bradley -- Florenzi/Pjanic

Destro/Lamela -- Osvaldo -- Totti


inb4 "tl;dr, who cares about Serie A anyways"

Possibly.
Outstanding athlete.

Almost 39 years old, 800+ matches played with Inter.

One of the very few true "team icons" in football.

I think that Roma could be the main rivals to Juventus.
Zeman is a great coach and they brought in some good players this summer
I've seen their game against Inter and they looked great

You never know what happens with a Zeman-led team, especially since there are a lot of young/new players (in addition to the icons, Totti and De Rossi). They could win it all or fight in the relegation zone.
All in all I doubt they can really be up there with Juve, but they can surely fight for a European spot.
