(JIWON: Last week, it was hard to control my eye-health. But I did watch World Cup 2010 Player Ratings: Italy 1-1 Paraguay‎. And finally, I found out what I wanted to find since weeks ago when I started this computer work on this issue, Italian football.)

Lippi is the holder of the last guard to preserve our Italian culture and identity and I believe that after the WC is over, regardless of the outcome, we will begin to see a nazionale similar to England, Germany, Netherlands, France, and the USA! Forza ITALIA!!! / [Agree 22 : Disagree 4]
Comment-AJ USA / 1:24 PM Jun 15, 2010: Disagree Carlo… I was actually pleasantly surprised by Italy. They looked, in my opinion, LOADS better than they have in recent weeks. Made me think Lippi had them playing possum prior to the WC… Italy dominated and could have easily won. Don’t know which game you saw but I saw a different one… / [Agree 11 : Disagree 2]

(JIWON: Basically, I wanted to read Italian comments, but it is impossible in this tired-out situation. I am never a soccer expert. I think, at least, I should know the players’ names if I want to express my personal opinion, and I still hardly know anything. But it was easy to say that…

What kind of opinions have I constantly read while following Berlusconi-articles? They kept insisting that “Old Screw Silvio” should open his wallet to buy Star-players, especially Brazilian strikers. Inter also has NO Italian players. How old is Roman Gladiator Totti? Everybody was asking Italian players to assist Foreign-Star strikers. I found absolutely NO Italian comment, which recommended Italian names in this job. Then, who will play in the National Team as a main striker or No.10, so to speak? (In fact, it was days ago that I learned this word, “Number 10”.) Elsewhere you go, you find young, fresh bloods looking to become golden generation during the FIFA WC 2010.

Someone please tell me what’s wrong with my naïve analysis. ACmilan’s Brazilian strikers failed to join World Cup 2010. Despite the fact that Bayern Munich 0-2 Inter: THE (31yr-old) ARGENTINE Stars As Nerazzurri Are Crowned Champions Of Europe (May 22, 2010), everyone is talking about 22yr-old Lionel Messi. Koreans joke that transfer fees for the entire Korean members cost less than half of this Argentinian. What about Italian players?)

(JIWON: I wanted to post one interesting article… or interview… and wanted to make it anonymous… until a series of misfortunes happened. A couple of weeks ago, I found two unique articles. Since it took couple of minutes to find the articles and this player was not for Sir Berlusconi, I felt no need to save them. Now, I feel weird when it is impossible to find those unique articles either from www.goal.com or from Google. Then, I realized that this player also has a famous story with his previous Italian boss. Now, I understand why the Spanish media tried to mock Sir Berlusconi on this issue. I think I am the last one to know this football fame. Therefore, I decide to make everything open. Below articles are the most similar to what I found weeks ago. I think the original article was; Ibrahimovic: “I plalyed defensive football in Italy. This is why…”)

Barcelona Star Zlatan Ibrahimovic Criticises ‘Defensive’ Serie A Nov 17, 2009 / By Goal
Barcelona striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has launched a stinging attack on Serie A in the Catalan press. The former Juventus and Inter ace believes that Serie A is too politicised and revealed that he feels at home in the more offensive-minded Primera Division. (…) “In Italy, the league is very hard. It’s very difficult to play in as an attacker. It’s another game, another mentality. I wouldn’t say it’s 100 per cent focused on defence, but they want to be certain before attacking and generally run less risks. In Spain you take more risks, because you want to score more goals. It’s another culture. The spectacle comes first here,” he concluded.

(JIWON: HO! I didn’t know that both Man-City and Real Madrid were willing to answer Barca’s high demand. I think Man-City’s generous, wealthy Arab owner should think of this option, since it could be the only way to (finally) beat Man-Utd. Even though Man-Utd’s former-hero is not going to return to his British home, Mourinho’s NEW hero is not going to please Man-City, is he? Let’s assume that Sir Berlusconi is to pay Barca €18M each year over a three-year period… even after all these and those happenings… only to show his diplomatic charity. What will happen in the second year, if this Spanish(?!) player proves to have been over-rated? Don’t you think this situation should be included in this contract, if the rumor about his Agent is true? Please check the comment section in recent articles. They are now talking about this agent.

Personally, I think… it would be terrific to see both Player Zlatan and Owner Silvio come to a bit of compromise if they REALLY want each other. If I were in Zlatan’s shoes, I would pledge my royalty to my real boss, who would be willing to spend his private(?) money to help me redeem my honor. However, I believe that setting a principal is more important for the LEADER. I wish Mr. Ibra a good luck, anyway. I’m done on this issue. PERIOD)

Where as in spain its seen more as entertainment, even if they are up 2 goals they’ll still attack their brains out. I prefer Serie A but i admire the different qualities EPL and Laliga possess. Every way football is played is beautiful / [Agree 10 : Disagree 1]
Comment-Milanista US / 7:50 PM Nov 17, 2009: his comments are not bad, a striker has to fight to score than be able to easily dribble past a mediocre defense and score 6 goals a match. There is much misconception with italian football today. U have to understand the majority of calcio is played in the head. They don’t rely on pace or tricks but there is no shortage in quality or entertainment. One strength is the ability to use this distinct way of play to achieve results not only as a league but internationally. Italy=4 world cups, Spain=0 / [Agree 14 : Disagree 3]
Comment-Dr G / 3:16 AM Nov 18, 2009: how is this “criticizing” or “stinging attack”….. he’s telling the truth… it’s more difficult to score in italy then in spain… that’s a fact..and if zlatan prefers to score more easy goals, it’s his choice…. as much as it’s my choice to fall a sleep when barca are up by three goals at halftime with 85% ball-possession… where is the thrill in that / [Agree 25 : Disagree 2]
Comment-abc india / 5:06 AM Nov 18, 2009: the matches in la liga are totally one sided. at least it is better in italy where even mid table teams defeats teams like ac milan, inter milan or juventus. / [Agree 8 : Disagree 1]
Comment-Inter fan` / 1:14 PM Nov 18, 2009: I think is not that “A” is to defensive and lack quality, but rather failed in commercial part, unlike EPL and La liga (Real Madrid and Barcelona) did and they invested a lot of money for things not even related to football. However Seria A is and always will be my first choice of all because of the tension in the matches… btw Juve’s cheating also made big contribution to Seria A fall compared to Epl&La liga! / [Agree 20 : Disagree 8]
Comment-Tarcisio INTER Debono Malta / 8:37 AM Nov 20, 2009: The Italian League is one of the most difficult to win. The Game is played tactically and technically. Being a star in Italian league does not mean you are going to do what you want unless you are a Maradona or Ronaldo. / [Agree 8 : Disagree 1]

(JIWON: Isn’t that interesting? There are something more, of course. Now, they are asking Italian kids a deeply philosophical question. Let’s hope that “Genius Silvio” is the first one to smile at these comments on ITALIAN MENTALITY… ho-ho.)

Comment-JuveLover USA / 2:43 PM Nov 17, 2009: Hey Zlatan! don’t spit at where you ate for so long, let’s not forget you are a betrayer. Nevertheless, Italy is clearly more defensive than Spain, that is the Italian mentality duh! Besides, Spain is not so great either, besides Real and Barca, no other team has a real chance of winning the tournament, that is boring as well…. Calcio is not perfect, yet Spain is not either / [Agree 22 : Disagree 12]
Comment-jakoby jakarta / 2:58 PM Nov 17, 2009: In Italy football is more serious and is more of a religion while in Spain and England its more of a spectacle. Carlo Ancelotti said the same since he moved to Chelsea regarding PL. In Italy you play to win no matter HOW you win, even if it means to be defensive-minded. That is probably why Serie A and Italy as a national-team almost always been superior Spain and England and their leagues. / [Agree 36 : Disagree 6]
Comment-Anthony Le Marche / 1:36 PM Nov 17, 2009: I don’t think Zlatan is criticizing Serie A. I’m a Serie A fan first, and i agree somewhat with his comments. Serie A is defensive minded, attacking more conservatively. In most cases. Some teams don’t fit into that description, the Genoas and Fiorentinas. It is a different game and mentality, one I and many others prefer. / [Agree 24 : Disagree 1]

(JIWON: Now, it’s Italian kids’ turn. Unfortunately, they seem to prefer ITALIAN MENTALITY to degenerate… alas. No wonder all kinds of violence, riots break out elsewhere in Italy in these days. Not to mention Genoa 1-0 Milan: Grifoni Defeat Off-Colour Rossoneri (May 9, 2010). Am I exaggerating?

What fascinated me the most, however, was that Sir Berlusconi himself seemed to lose this terrific ITALIAN MENTALITY while surviving his life as an Italian politician, always busy at protecting himself from his political rivals. Hasn’t his political life become purely offensive? Hum…)

Comment-Dvs Holland / 6:27 PM Nov 17, 2009: Italian football is definitely changing into a more offensive league, the progress is slow but it is going. Give it a few years and you’ll see. / [Agree 4 : Disagree 3]
Comment-Arash Sweden / 4:46 AM Nov 18, 2009: He is right about the political thing but Serie A isn’t that defensive anymore…. English premier League is more defensive except for this season were Premier League is scoring crazy many goals. But Italy is to political, to many thieves, referee problems, mafia involvement etc, hooliganism Italy have many problems / [Agree 5 : Disagree 8]

Comment-Well … / 1:58 PM Nov 17, 2009: The national teams play differently. And the players in the Italian national team don’t all play in the Seria A. Some of them even play in Spain. / [Agree 3 : Disagree 10]

(JIWON: Who says that “In 80’s and 90’s, there was a Serie A Supremacy”? Whenever Sir Berlusconi missed his golden years, everybody treated him as a useless old moron. Everybody did. Is there something wrong with my observation? Now, I know why ACmilan’s gang called Sir Lippi “BORING”… hum.)

Comment-acmilan Sweden / 6:22 AM Nov 18, 2009: What he says i true, BUT this is the reason why spanish teams have a difficult time beating Italian teams.. SO what is more important playing beautiful offensive football but not win the game.. or playing BORING football but win all their games / [Agree 20 : Disagree 2]
Comment-Juve4Ever Malta / 2:44 PM Nov 17, 2009: I prefer the tactical football of Serie A. I never find it BORING like the English and Spanish. / [Agree 17 : Disagree 12]
Comment-Mohammad Abq, USA / 2:06 PM Nov 17, 2009: Yes and bcz of that Serie A is boring. I am a Serie A fan. Calcio after 2004 it’s just BORING. In 80’s and 90’s, there was a Serie A Supremacy. / [Agree 13 : Disagree 3]

(JIWON: However still, it’s interesting to compare three different kinds of BORING comments. The first one says that the Italian style is boring. The second one insists that other styles are boring. The last one laments that the Italian style has lost her identity and has become boring. Isn’t that interesting? I don’t know why I should find this kind of comments from the Intermilan’s article, which has been a leading force to ruin the Italian healthy mentality.

Sorry about saying this. But… while following ACmilan articles, I couldn’t help comparing this Moratti with that Moratti. I couldn’t help comparing Moratti’s Intermilan, which was full of foreign stars, and Moratti’s La Scala, which was and is still full of foreign sh*ts and their Italian servants.

At the same time, I now REALLY feel pity on Sir Berlusconi. Those guys never hesitate to express their frustration on the BORING football. Then what about “Owner Silvio”, who poured millions and millions of real money into his club and is still losing millions and millions and has constantly been insulted whenever he expressed his frustration? The fact that he has “from-time-to-time” been honored as Italian prime minister is another story. Am I wrong?

Now, don’t you think it’s time to think about Italian Ntaional Team, its Youngsters and its Italian Mentality?)

World Cup 2010: Italy Captain Fabio Cannavaro Expects Hard Game Against Paraguay Jun 14, 2010 / By Goal
(…) “The hardest moment is the first game. … We don’t have any stars, but we are well armed.” Cannavaro has drawn on the differences compared to humble beginnings four years ago. “In 2006 it was easy. Everyone knew what to do and where to go. This time it’s different,” he added. The captain believes younger players need to be moulded into shape so they can stand firm in the way of pressure. “We have to speak to the young players, especially before the first game,” he concluded.
