So after a the longest two weeks we finally got to see our beloved come back and play a game. I have to admit it wasn’t the prettiest game ever. It was sluggish to say the least and it looked like they ate lunch too close to kickoff. The passing was off and movement was kinda slow, but in the end we got the three points which is all that matters. Despite the sluggishness Inter controlled the first half and created a few chances but the tempo was slow and Calgiari looked to close us down tight. Then a magical moment occurred and Eto’o gave us the win. What a spectacular goal it was! This man has been out of this world so far this season and it’s been simply amazing to watch.
The second half was Inter holding on to the lead and Calgiari growing into the game late when desperation began to sink in. Dejan missed a couple of chances, the best being a header from a corner that flew over. Eto’o had another shot from distance that was well saved. However the highlight of the second half was the incredible double save by Julio Cesar on Nene and Matri. That truly saved our asses as that was a point of the Sardinians right there. In the end we get the win in a slightly boring game.
What is really exciting is Seria A this year. The table is so tight and there are teams playing excellent football. If I thought Eto’o's goal was amazing there were at least four or five others this week that were just as good if not better. Palermo is playing exciting football. Juventus has scored 16 goals so far this season and are begining to look like a serious threat. Milan is starting to worry me as they are growing into a force. Lazio is playing really well and are setting the pace. Fiorentina is in trouble if they don’t do something quick and Roma is so up and down you never know what you are going to get with them.
All this and Champions League in a few days. Gotta love it!
