Football Fan https://fan-5.ru For all the football fans out there. Sun, 24 Oct 2010 13:46:19 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.9.2 en hourly 1 S. S. Lazio: True Italian Team? https://fan-5.ru/s-s-lazio-true-italian-team/ https://fan-5.ru/s-s-lazio-true-italian-team/#comments Sun, 24 Oct 2010 13:46:19 +0000 admin https://fan-5.ru/?p=14 It has been a while since we say S. S. Lazio – or simply Lazio – accomplish great things internationally. Still, this team still holds the reputation of being one of the most Italian team in the Serie A. To test that reputation, we are going to take a look at Lazio’s top players of all time based on number of appearances and goals.

When seen based on number of appearances with the team, the 5th best player Lazio ever had goes to Luca Marchegiani. The Italian footballer performed in 339 matches for Lazio. Marchegiani is just under Aldo Puccinelli who is in fourth place with 342 appearances. Next, we have Paolo Negro with 376 appearances for Lazio; yes, Negro is also an Italian footballer. From the name, we can tell that the footballer holding the second most appearances record in Lazio’s history, Giuseppe Wilson, is an Italian as well. Another famous Italian footballer, Giuseppe Fivalli, is topping the list with 401 appearances.

Based on the number of goals scored for Lazio, Silvio Piola is holding the record of most goals with 148 goals in total. He is also known as one of the best strikers in Italy’s national team history. Giuseppe Signori is following closely with 127 goals for Lazio, while another Italian footballer Giorgio Chinaglia is just 4 goals short from Signori.

Although Lazio’s today’s squad has less Italians in it, the team maintained a long history of true Italian football indeed. It is up to Edoardo Reja, Lazio’s current manager, to uphold the tradition.

Internazionale Milan: Current Squad https://fan-5.ru/internazionale-milan-current-squad/ https://fan-5.ru/internazionale-milan-current-squad/#comments Thu, 12 Aug 2010 13:45:41 +0000 admin https://fan-5.ru/?p=10 Internazionale Milan or simply Inter Milan is now recognized as one of the strongest teams in Europe after successfully winning the UEFA Champions League this year. Inter Milan defeated a lot of strong teams including Barcelona in the Semi Finals and of course Bayern Munich in the final match. What are the keys to this team’s success? The answer would be their current squad, filled with amazing players from all around the world.

Javier Zanetti is still holding the Captain badge along with Iván Córdoba as his vice-captain. They are both strengthening Inter Milan’s defensive line to the max. Let’s not forget that Inter Milan also has a superb goalkeeper, Júlio César, and another unrivaled defensive player Lucio.

The key to Inter Milan’s attacks would have to be Samuel Eto’o. This amazing player from Cameroon has successfully created numerous goals for the team as well as presented scoring opportunities for other attacking players and midfielders. Eto’o is also famous for being extremely fast, allowing him to break through enemy defense lines without hassle.

Wesley Sneijder, predicted to be the next big thing in the 2010 FIFA World Cup while supporting the Netherlands national team, is another strong player in Inter Milan’s formation. As an active midfielder, Sneijder is capable of producing opportunities and providing passes that any striker in the world would love. His amazing aiming ability makes him superbly accurate in every situation.

With a squad this strong, it is not impossible at all for Inter Milan to continue winning other trophies and titles this year.

Kaka: 2009-2010 Season with Real Madrid https://fan-5.ru/kaka-2009-2010-season-with-real-madrid/ https://fan-5.ru/kaka-2009-2010-season-with-real-madrid/#comments Wed, 30 Jun 2010 13:44:43 +0000 admin https://fan-5.ru/?p=6 Kaka is famous for being an agile player with superb ability in constructing attacks and providing assists to other attacking players. These specific abilities are what brought Kaka to Real Madrid, before the start of 2009-2010 season. How was the season for Kaka? What did he accomplish for Real Madrid? We are going to answer those questions in this part.

Kaka played in 22 of Real Madrid’s domestic matches in the 2009-2010 season. He didn’t make any surprises, but managed to amaze everyone – especially fellow Real Madrid players and the team’s avid fans – by scoring 8 goals. Considering that he is actually a midfielder makes 8 goals quite substantial indeed.

As mentioned earlier, Kaka is famous for being able to provide top assists to support other strikers. In the 2009-10 season, Kaka provided 6 superb assists that transformed into amazing goals for the team. Again, the number may not be that spectacular but it is certainly more than enough for the team to lead the La Liga.

Let’s not forget that Kaka is still adjusting to Real Madrid’s playing style and building teamwork with other Real Madrid players. Whether he will be able to contribute more to the team and provide more goals as well as assists in the future is something we need to wait and see to find out. But judging from Kaka’s performances in the 2010 FIFA World Cup so far, it is safe to say that he will be one of the most shining players in European football this season.

Liverpool: Accomplishments https://fan-5.ru/liverpool-accomplishments/ https://fan-5.ru/liverpool-accomplishments/#comments Mon, 24 May 2010 13:44:14 +0000 admin https://fan-5.ru/?p=4 There are several successful teams in the Premier League, and Liverpool is definitely one of them. They are currently going neck-to-neck with Manchester United to be the best team in the Premier League history, and the rivalry between the two teams couldn’t be more intense. What have Liverpool accomplished so far?

Liverpool is currently holding a record of 18 First Division victories, a record equal to that of Manchester United. The last time Liverpool won the First Division – now the Premier League – trophy was in the 1989-90 season, but with a squad this strong it is not impossible at all to see Liverpool snatching the trophy from under Manchester United’s and other big teams’ noses anytime soon.

Liverpool had also won no less than 7 FA Cup trophies so far. They first won the FA Cup in 1965, and won their last FA Cup in 2006. In 2006, Liverpool also won their 15th FA Charity Shield (FA Community Shield). Let’s not forget that Liverpool also won several League Cup trophies as well.

In the European football competition, Liverpool is a team worth considering as well. They successfully won their 5th UEFA Champions League trophy in 2005, and continued to win their 3rd UEFA Super Cup the same year.

The number of awards booked by Liverpool is definitely among the best, compared to other top teams in the Premier League. It is just a matter of time before they can overtake Manchester United and become the best team in Premier League history.
