New season, folks… rejoice! Serie A starting grid for your excitement:

1- AC Milan, defending champions and leading the pack again!
2- Internazionale, best squad in spite of weak club, Inzaghi going all-in!

3- Juventus, weaker than last year, Allegri on his last gig!
4- Roma, dark horses with a deep squad and a fired up Jose!

5-8 Napoli, Lazio, Atalanta + the usual overachieving squad.

Bold prediction: AC Milan will make the CL quarter finals!!

Roma is the real dark horse in this season, their players are very strong. Possibly has some chances in top3 for sure.
I think number 1-4 this season can be every team from Milan to Napoli.

The most interesting point in this season: This is Allegri’s last opportunity in Juventus, he must performs well in this season.

Forza Genoa (in Serie B :(). Ma Donna!

Think Milan back to earth this season, max a 3, Juve and Inter occuperà 1 e 2. Roma e Napoli fight but no have consistency. I think dark horse is Atalanta. Suffer injuries and not ave squadra for CL, but no Europe this year.

L'Atalanta è molto moderno attraente.

Serie a has been surprisingly exciting these past few seasons.
I'm expecting more of the same.

Can't wait, love Serie A. I'm off to Genoa for the Sampdoria v Lazio game later in the month as well.

Will be interesting to see how Roma get on this season and whether Juve can recover there old form. Inter will win it though is my prediction.

I hope I’m wrong but I don’t think Napoli make top 4. I think 6th for them with the top 4 being (no particular order) Inter, Milan, Roma and Juventus.

Napoli losing Koulibaly, Insigne, Mertens and Ghoulam in one transfer-window. All at the club for a minimum of 8 seasons or more. End of an era.

Couldn’t agree more

Inter, Milan, Juventus and Roma have most chances for being in top4. Right now, I wouldn’t predict who will win this year, since I think this year will fun and it’s probably close more than previous years for sure.

Young players to watch!

I would start with three prospective Juve midfielders, currently fighting to stay in the squad for the season: Nicolo’ Rovella (2001), Nicolo’ Fagioli (2001), Fabio Miretti (2003). Considering the dreadful state of Juve’s midfield, the perennial injuries and the cost-cutting attitude from the front office, it is very possible all three of them are going make the cut. The last big player emerging from the academy was Marchisio, 15 years ago, so let’s see what happens.

Nicolo’ Rovella is a versatile footballer who could play trequarista , registrar or mezzala, he’s a real talent guy.

The problem is Max Allegri doesn’t like to use teenagers or wonderkids( everyone knows from his latest interview). I hope that he will use Juve’s talents more an more.

Juventus will unfortunately reestablish its stranglehold this season. The milan clubs will stay competitive and end in CL. Napoli and Roma will fight for 4th. Fiorentina my dark horse

Conte is still coaching Spurs, mate. He’ll come again to the rescue of that 10 euros restaurant, though, next year or the other.

Inter. Milan. Roma. Juventus In that order imho.

Inter: Perisic is a big loss but the difference in having Lukaku instead of Dzeko upfront should largely compensate their problems on the left (Gosens has looked unconvincing so far)

Milan: The only key player lost has been Kessiè but we signed a potential amazing talent as CDK, Ballon d'Or contender Kjaer is back and two very interesting youngsters as Yacine Adli and Pobega have returned from their loan spell. We should get around 82-85 points but I fear Inter will get more thanks to Romelu.

Roma: Spinazzola is back after missing the whole past season. Matic, Belotti, Wijnaldum and Dybala are great addition (also for the depth). Defence is average and Rui Patricio has become mistake-prone keeper though.

Juventus: their fullbacks are too weak to be a title contender imho, Allegri is finished as top coach, Pogba and Di Maria are there just to prepare the world cup and Chiesa will be 100% back only in January as confessed by their manager.
