I would have to say Inter, esp. if they get Nesta and Ronaldo can stay healthy (of course thats a big if). They could have had it last year so I don't see why this year will be any different (meaning the choke again )
I think Milans best chance is because they have the Serie A President on thier side now, Roma is always difficult and I don't think Lazio will offer much of a threat this year.
BTW Martin, feel free to resore my post count when you have a free moment
Otherwise I think that Milan will be on top of the top this year, of course if Sheva gets back on track. With Serginho, Pirlo, Thomasson and co. they'll have quite a bit of creativity and anything but success will be disappointing.
Inter=Ronaldo +vieri will be a potent striking force,but expect them to drop off somewhere halfway.
Milan=Sheva will make a comeback this year,i expect.but the rest will run out of steam,and end up 4-6th place together with inter.
Lazio=expect them to blow hot and cold all season.
Roma=they'll be breathing down our necks,that's for sure.thing about them is,even without key players totti or batigol,they can still pose a threat.
but as they say,slow and steady wins the race,so all ya crap clubs,step aside for the old lady!
That I agree with. Kiran, is your name Indian because a friend of mine told me that her name - Kiran - was originally Indian. Inter are really strong favourites, huh ?? Inter only did well last season because they started without any pressure, and as soon as the temperatures sarted to rise in the challenge last year they started sttutering. Inter can't bear the pressure: players, fans, and coach. So, with all the pressure and high expectations surrounding them, they will fail miserably, unlike Lazio.
I have a feeling the league will be even tighter this year than last year. I can see Juve,Roma,Inter and Milan all in with a chance.
Inter - If they can keep Ronnie and Vieri fit they should have a very good chance,but really and truly I dont see Inter winning the Scudetto if they don't strengthen up their defence. They've got Coco which should help,but if they can sign Nesta and I can see them going all the way this year.
Lazio - Nah,not a chance,especially if Nesta and Crespo leave.
Milan - Watch out for Pirlo-Pippo-Sheva,and they've got Tomasson too. Another top 4 finish for Milan this year.
Roma - As DPF said earlier,strong and solid. Totti and co. should give Juve a good fight for the Scudetto this year.
Just keep in mind that players don't win championships. Teams do. The question is whether Cuper will get his things in order (as I think he will) to push Inter for another strong season, regardless of all the stars. Because let's face it, Inter has been packed with stars the past 5 years and haven't won anything domestically.
A similar task awaits Ancelotti (and may I add I hope he will have more luck this year), his defensive tactics could use a revision in light of embarassing results the past season, esp on the road in Europe.
And Capello, well I think we all know he is a man to fear!
