Alrighty folks, looks like we’re officially into the 2nd half of the season, and Palermo are really crappy this year, whether its underachievement or merely because they don’t have a good squad, still can’t underestimate them, despite their god awful away record in Serie A. We have to take every chance to climb up the board as we can. Since Il Ciuccio didn't make the match day thread, hope I can be of some competent service to you! That’s Palermo’s emblem, basically its the symbol of sacked managers and where we got our world class striker Cavani, so we have that to thank them for, and also taking Aronica and Dossena, even if its a couple of years too late. That’s Napoli’s emblem in case you’re new here, basically less is more with the emblem, pretty simple stuff. But it’s enough to get beautiful women to love the team On behalf of the males of the Napoli forum in Bigsoccer, we love you too, poorly photoshopped topless girl! in case you don’t know who Zamparini is, he’s the owner of Palermo and he’s very well known around Serie A for his lack of patience in managers, and you thought Roman Abramovich was bad with Chelsea, Zamparini one ups him in the sacking managers category. Basically it’s not uncommon to face two different managers when going up against Palermo over the course of a season. They are managed by Gian Piero Gasperini, the guy Mourinho, while coaching Inter said “Gave him the most trouble.” He’s notorious for his adamence towards the 3 man backline, that would even make Mazzarri scratch his head But there are two new faces to be seen on the Napoli side due to the transfer window, one didn’t get signed in time to be on the bench, and the other will either start or be on the bench for a much needed left footed LWB Emanuele Calaio and Pablo Armero Calaio will NOT be on the bench for the Palermo game due to not being registered within 24 hours, Armero will be on the bench or starting for the Napoli side and here’s what players will be in the matchday squad Napoli squad for Palermo:De Sanctis, Rosati, Colombo, Britos, Campagnaro, Fernandez, Gamberini, Uvini, Armero, Behrami,Donadel, Dzemaili, El Kaddouri,Hamsik, Inler, Maggio, Mesto, Zuniga, Cavani, L Insigne, Pandev, R Insigne I bolded the likely starters for the game, the Insigne brothers will be together, and I don’t think Armero will start because hes still new to the side, and probably isn’t caught up on Mazzarri tactics (hint: 1. pass ball to center backs, 2. hoof to cavani 3. ????? 4. PROFIT!) Hoping Napoli take advantage of a side that is adding players to a system placed on them midseason by Gasperini, personally with bias looking at a 3-1 scoreline favoring the Partenopei, I don’t see Napoli relinquishing a loss at the San Paolo to a side with one of the worst away records in Serie A. Getting good form after a win against Roma will be vital, and Palermo fans on BigSoccer are few, so if any of you guys are around, feel free to join in on the action in this matchday thread! We bitch a lot!
