Lazio needed that massively, can't see them finishing in a European spot in the league, so winning the cup was paramount. 

Chuffed for Correra, he really has come onto a game the second part of this season.

Allegri to leave Juve at the end of the season. Wonder who they have in mind to replace him?

At the moment Conte is basically playing Juve and Inter against each other for his services.

Kinda looks like that. I see he's second favourite behind Pep with Simione third fav.

Gasperini has done a very good job at Atalanta. Perhaps in with a shout of either Inter or Juve (more likely the former)

Sky are reporting Conte is likely to head to Inter.

Pochettino the favourite for Juve.

A Juve supporting mate of mine who is very accurate when it comes to Juve related predictions reckons that Conte to Inter would make them favourites for next year's scudetto.

Will be in Milan with Mrs in October, if there’s a game on I’d quite like to go but getting less than positive comments about getting to the San Siro and the area around the stadium. Any advice from someone who has actually been to a game there?

It's really easy getting to the San Siro from the city centre - you can get the metro M5 (purple line) straight to the stadium, you can get a tram (no. 16) straight to the stadium or if you think that will be too busy or too hectic you can get a different metro line then walk around a mile or so past the racecourse or down the main road. The area round the stadium isn't exactly very pretty but there's nothing too sketchy round there as far as I remember. There are a few bars etc. round there that I wouldn't necessarily go into but I'd just have a few beers in the centre of town then head out in the hour or so before kick off. There will probably be armed police with assault rifles in the vicinity of the stadium but they aren't going to be interested in you unless you look like you're intent on causing bother.

Hellas beat Perugia 4-1 in the Serie B "qualifying' playoff - now face Pescara over two legs, with the possibility if they win that of a further two games against Benevento or Cittadella for another season getting arseraped week in and week out in promotion to Serie A

A shame Perugia never made it but it was interesting to see a North Korean and South Korean substituted on at the same time.

Inzaghi and Sarri are currently the frontrunners for the Juventus job.

big 45 minutes coming up for Empoli (and Parma); 1-0 up at home to Torino at half time, if they hang on they're out of the bottom three, definitely above Genoa and possibly Parma too with all three teams away from home on the final day of the season (Inter, Fiorentina and Roma respectively); hope they stay up - nice place, great little ground...

ETA1 - torino equalise...

ETA2 - empoli back in front, and parma have one cleared off the line - still 0-0 there

ETA3 - 3-1 to empoli now

ETA4 - Parma take the lead - that's them safe if it stays like that; could well be going in to the last day with one from five to go down (Empoli, Genoa, Udinese, Bologna - and Fiorentina !)

ETA5 - 4-1 for Empoli !

ETA6 - Empoli win - Parma win and are safe - all manner of potential last day permutations - will hafta go and check the head to head records....

Bad result for Messina in Serie D Group I, 1-2 at home to their nearest dropzone rival Sancataldese. Only 1 point ahead of them now, going into the final round of matches, Messina are away to 2nd bottom Rotonda Calcio. Sancataldese are at home to bottom side Igea Virtus Barcellona

:shutup

easy win at Rotonda to steer clear of the relegation play-outs, but Messina lost the Coppa Italia Serie D final to Matelica yesterday (18.05); if they won, they'd have qualified for the latter stages of the playoffs and (potentially) been on the list of clubs put forward for promotion to replace any non-relegated Serie C teams who were demoted for financial irregularities or other shitebaggery; Citta de Messina beat Locri in the relegation play-out, so both Messina clubs (should) remain in the same division together for 2019/20...

In other lower league news, all three teams relegated from Serie B to Serie D last summer for fiscal misdeeds have all secured automatic promotion back to Serie C (Bari, Avellino and Cesena); they'll be joined - on paper - by Como, Arzignano Valchiampo, Lecco, Pergolettese, Pianese and Picerno (three teams to each of the three Serie B regional leagues)
