Saturday Morning Roundup

Serie A:

Good news for Roma fans, it appears that Alberto Aquilani is fit and ready to play after the winter break ends.

Speaking of Roma, the Corriere dello Sport has reported that Roma and goalkeeper Alexander Doni will be entering a new contract that will result in a significant pay raise for Doni. Doni's current contract is set to expire in 2009.

Recent talk of Figo going to the MLS is premature, appears he wants to win Serie A and the Champions League with Inter.

This month, Serie A and Milan fans will get to see the much-hyped Alexandro Pato take the pitch against Napoli (Jan. 13). This past August, Milan paid a 22million Euro fee to Inter for the young Brazilian.

Siena has signed Richard Porta from River Plate, Uruguay. Meanwhile, Reggina has brought back Cristian Stuani who has been on loan at Danubio.

A final Roma note, the team is going after Bari defender, Nicola Belmonte.


It appears that the San Jose EarthQuakes will be bringing Moneyball to the MLS:

-Can a stats oriented system produce a MLS Winner, I guess we'll find out.

Final Note:

Sunday night, my favorite television series returnst to HBO, for its final season: The Wire. If you haven't watched it, I highly recomend you do.
