All play while the Old Lady’s away
Many’s the young man who’ll acquire a spring in his step when the Old Lady’s absent for a spell. Such best fake canada goose jacket is certainly the case so far in Serie A, where Juve were emphatically not missed this weekend. Neither was the goal, much. While the former Turin giants stumbled to a 1-1 draw with Rimini in Serie B (and sweeps began on how long before they’d sign Titus Bramble), Italy’s top division teams revelled in their newfound freedom with a flurry of belting goals.
The best of them came down in Sicily at Palermo, West Ham’s Uefa opponents this Thursday. First the bad news for Alan Pardew and co; the Sicilians are every bit as fond of shooting as you’d expect from a side named Palermo.
Eleven minutes in Australia’s Mark Bresciano opened the scoring with a fine bicycle kick, only to be outdone five minutes later by an absolute gobsmacker from his midfield colleague Giuseppe Biava; in a moment of Matrix-esque inspiration, Biava dived headlong towards Eugenio Corini’s in-swinging free kick and volleyed it home with his heel, in mid-air.
New Brazilian signing Amauri almost scored with his similarly fine flying kick shortly after, average price for a canada goose jacket after which veteran playmaker Corini slotted home from the penalty spot and Palermo were 3-0 buy canada goose parka ottawa up with less than half an hour gone.
The game was far from over, however, because along with their trigger-happy instincts Palermo apparently also sport an equally apt set of canada goose coat 1000 calorie diets concrete boots at the back. Statuesque defending allowed Reggina to grab goals on either side of half time, despite having a man sent off.
It took a late Amauri header to seal a 4-3 win, one that will have offered West Ham’s scouts a tantalising glimpse for Alan Pardew and co at the opportunities in store on Thursday.
Palermo’s neighbours Catania and Messina also began with wins Sunday, leaving the three Sicilian sides sharing the lead in Italy with five other clubs. Amongst these are Inter who came up with an impressive 3-2 victory at Fiorentina.
The Nerazzurri had only managed one win in Florence in almost two decades prior to this, but for an hour on Saturday night they made it look easy.
With Adriano on the bench, new arrivals Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Hernán Crespo wreaked havoc in the bewildered Fiorentina backline. Argentine midfielder Esteban Cambiasso grabbed best ideas about canada goose parka on pinterest a first half brace and even Ibrahimovic, whose execution is usually as messy as Richard III’s red-hot poker number, contributed a fine half volley for the third.
However, the game wasn’t over. With Inter turning their thoughts to Tuesday’s Champions League game and Big Pat Vieira coming off for a rest, two late strikes from the home side’s Luca Toni set up a nervous finale for the home side, although Inter hung on to pass their first major test of the season.
As for their rivals, Roma joined the leading group with a 2-0 win over Livorno (the first a 30-yard rocket from Danielle de Rossi, hit almost as hard as Brian McBride). Milan, meanwhile, opened can i wash my canada goose jacket their account on Sunday with a 2-1 win over Lazio.
This game did little to resolve the usual doubts over buying cheap canada goose outlet jacket online their Jurassic backline, but can you buy canada goose jacket online the home fans will have been comforted by the debut performance of so-called ‘mysterious object’, Ricardo Oliveira. Oliviera, Brazil’s forgotten forward thanks to last season’s cruciate ligament problems, wasn’t exactly the man the Rossoneri faithful had been expecting in Sheva’s place this season – they’d been hoping for a splurge for Ronaldinho, or at the very least Ronaldo.
Milan manager Carlo Ancelotti has long been an Oliveira admirer though, and Sunday showed us why. Eight minutes after coming on for Alberto Gilardino, Oliveira headed home the winner for Milan (suggested commentary: ‘They thinks it’s Oliveira … It is now!’) and only a finger-tip save from Lazio’s Luca Peruzzi stopped him adding another on a distinctly un-Shevchenko-like 60-yard run through Lazio’s defence.
Thanks to the points penalty picked up in this summer’s match-fixing melée Milan still lie eight points behind rivals Inter and Roma but they’ll be heartened by the fact that Roma will be hosting the Nerazzurri at the Olimpico a week on Wednesday.
In the meantime round two sees Roma at Siena, Palermo visiting Lazio and Inter at home to Sampdoria while Milan travel to Parma – a match that, the public deserves to know, will be live on Bravo. We’ll have the verdict can someone check if this canada goose outlet website is authentic on that and all the week’s action right canada goose coat – kensington here next Monday, so see you then.
