  Good morning my friends.   Wow, am I exciting or what!  Wooo hooooo we are about to start the Serie A in one more day.   Let's share your predictions for the First Round.  Allow me to invite you a virtual cup of coffee or a cup of tea, if you prefer.  I am so happy reading the Italian newspapers and watching the Serie A news.  Ok, now, wait a minute.  Before I share with you the Italian newspapers front pages, let me count up to ten or I will just faint!!!!!!  What am I talking about?  Oh my gosh. Guys, I was kind of shock to read the main headline from La Gazzetta dello Sport with the declarations of new Napoli forward Gonzalo Higuain.  Why?  Ok, hold on, let me count again, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10.....   I was like "hello, hum, Gonzalo what are you talking about?" 
I admire Gonzalo Higuain, but I also admire Edinson Cavani.   So, reading Higuain's declarations that Cavani wrote the history in Napoli with his goals, and that he will write it with the victories... BAM!  That was kind like a punch in the stomach...  it means, Cavani's goals were not enough to win Scudetto, Coppa, Champions League????   Does it mean that Higuain will score less goals and win the Scudetto, or Coppa, or Champions League?  Mamma mia.... here I go again, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10..... 

Jumping to other headlines.... grab your seats because tonight there is the Serie B kickoff with the game Reggina-Bari.  Love to see the headline that Serie B teams are going after Palermo who seems the favorite to win the Serie B.  Palermo's goal is to return to Serie A and you bet I am rooting for Palermo and my beloved Gennaro Gattuso coaching them.  Forza!  Mi batte il cuore!!!!

Transfer market news are just flying... gossip, speculation, hypothesis, dreams....   Getting my attention is the headline on Inter transfer market trying to get iconic Samuel Eto'o... though wait... also the indirect message from Leonardo wanting to return.  Ooops....  It seems also the "hot potato" is Juventus forward Alessandro Matri contended by AC Milan and Inter.  A derby!!!!

Headlines on Europa League includes the great victory of Fiorentina in the away game against Grasshoppers in Zurich: 2-1   The chaotic collapse of Udinese at the Nereo Rocco Stadium losing against Slovan Leberec 1-3.
