Monday News Roundup As Another Inter Midfielder Goes Under the KnifeBy: Martha | December 3rd, 2007
â€¢This time it’s Olivier Dacourt. I don’t want to talk about it.
â€¢Francesco Totti is (probably) going to be back full force for the make-up match with Cargliari on Wedneday. No more of that bench-sitting shit, he and his bionic boot are (hopefully) ready to go. (And they’re also ready to challenge for the Scudetto. Bitches.)
â€¢Speaking of Roma, the story about Mancini being miserable and moving to Inter in January just won’t go away.
â€¢We’re not going to have Raymond Domenech to kick around anymore. Or at least, not until May.
â€¢Gemany loves Luca Toni’s fiancee Marta Cecchetto as much as it does him: She’s scored himself some sort of TV hosting gig. Aw, Marta! Why, that’s proper WAG behavior, that is!
â€¢Milan’s Dario Simic is looking increasingly likely to leave when the winter transfer window opens. He wants to play regularly and claims he’s been approached by several clubs, but is particularly fond of the offer he received from Lokomotiv Moscow.
â€¢Antonio Cassano and Renzo Ulivieri have been fined â‚¬10,000 each for the touchline shouting match that ended, oddly, with Ulivieri being send off. Somehow, I don’t think the fine’s gonna do much for Cassano’s behavior.
â€¢More Roma: Their major Ultra groups stayed away from the Udinese match on Sunday, preferring instead to gather at the Circus Maxiumus in Rome as a means of protesting the recent crackdown on travel, and the general scrutiny under which Ultras have come in the wake of what happened after Gabriele Sandri’s death.
