The tinkerer and the ideologue

Max Allegri and Maurizio Sarri may both have forged their reputations in the lower leagues but, as Gaby McKay explains, they have very different philosophies.

November 16, 2003. Sangiovannese take on Aglianese in Serie C2, a 0-0 draw without a single shot on target, watched by just 1,400 fans.

Rome back on the map

After a week of stunning European turnarounds, Roma and Lazio go head-to-head in an extremely high stakes Derby della Capitale, writes Emmet Gates

What a difference a week makes. Football is often a sport of momentum, of conviction, of tactical decisions that can be the epicentre of seismic change. Never was that more pertinent than this week.

Eusebio Di Francesco, a Zdenek Zeman disciple seemingly wedded to a 4-3-3 system, decided to radically shift from his beliefs a mere two days before their game against Barcelona on Tuesday night.

Inzaghi's fatal flaw

Simone Inzaghi is a brilliant Coach, but his attacking mentality means Lazio tend to crumble defensively, argues Ramez Nathan

Living in the shadow of Super Pippo for years, Simone watched his older brother join Juventus while he was still playing in the third division and even though he had an astonishing season at Lazio later, Pippo was always the better footballer, knowing how to stab the ball into the net by instinct as he lead Juventus and Milan to glory and Italy to the most prestigious title, the World Cup.
