Traditional Giants Should Expect A Stiff Challenge From Minnows

Many Milan fans are very excited that Galliani and Berluscni have finally heard their pleas and cries and signed players who could win them trophies. There is no doubt that the Rossoneri are looking very strong on all fronts this season, however, before writing off other teams, it is important to note that Inter Milan, Juventus, AS Roma and the chasing pack of Napoli, Palermo, Sampdoria Fiorentina, Genoa and Lazio won’t yield the title to Milan or any other team for that matter without a fight.

Week 1 of the Serie A provided some shocking results and i can assure you that this will be the trend throughout the entire season. Who would have imagined that champions Inter could be held to a draw by Bologna or Juventus losing to Bari after acquirng some very talented players?

What we are witnessing could be a return to glory for a league that has been rocked by scandals and doping allegations for quite some time. With it’s latest acquisitions, the Serie A has now become one of the most appealing leagues to watch.

Ronaldinho, Eto’o, Adriano Krasic, Sneijder, Ibrahimovic, Robinho-these are just a few of the stars who will feature in the Serie A this season. Despite recording negative results on the first weekend of the season, Inter are Juventus are still strong title contenders.

The Nerazzurri under Rafa Benitez pose the greatest threat and have what it takes to win the title for a 6th straight time! The pressure will definitely be on Milan to win some silverware and as we all know that could be both know, that could prove to be either a positive or negative factor.

With the transfer window over at least until January, focus shifts to league action. My expectations for the first half of the season is open attacking football from the top four. Anything other than a win in the next for months could seriously derail any title hopes for these giants.
