I was like 10 minutes away from making this. :D I'll edit your post to include the logo I was going to use.

AC Milan sold to Chinese investors. They're finally shot of Berlusconi.

Meanwhile Spurs are tried for crimes against Italy after selling Fazio to Roma.

They have had a pretty awful preseason.

3-1 loss to PSG
4-1 loss to Bayern
6-1 loss to Spurs

Even so, it's just preseason isn't it? They did look particularly dreadful against Spurs, though.

Other than the crappy preseason, I'm not sure why he was fired. I imagine there were disagreements about the transfer market or something

I really like Inter squad this year.

Kondogbia
Medel
Banega
Felipe Melo
João Mario ?

Pretty good ^

Candreva, Perisic, Jovetic and Icardi

Miranda and Murillo as CBs.

The midfielders and attackers they are carrying over from last season are some of the most overrated players around. I do like their centre-backs and the Candreva & JeyMar signings though, despite the fact that the latter is going to cost a pretty penny from what i've read.

very curious to see how they do this seaosn with De Boer. Let's not forget also that Eder joined them in January and never made an impact at all. If him and Candreva can play like they do for Italy then Inter could be very good.

First games of the season today.

Solid 4-0 win for Roma, pretty much was in control the whole game but just couldn't find the finish until Perotti came on, who was excellent, after that it was just domination through the 2nd half.

I was so into the PL 'action' today that I missed the start of La Liga and Serie A. Sad that I missed Roma kicking off but I'm glad that they won. Gonna tune into Juve vs. la Viola now.

Inter losing at home to Palermo

edit: Level now, but Palermo might be the worst team at defending crosses I've ever seen. Every Inter cross results in a wide open header. Amazing it's only 1-1

Milik with 6 goals in his first 5 games in all competitions for Napoli. Proving the doubters wrong so far.
