    Every Serie A club deserves its own thread, even Chievo. :)

    Website - www.chievoverona.it (and it has an English version!)

    New arrivals - Giuseppe Pillon (manager - Treviso), Andrea Mantovani (defender - Torino), Alberto Fontana (keeper - Cesena).

    Key losses - Roberto Baronio (midfielder - Lazio), Luca Marchegiani (keeper - retired), Julio Cesar (keeper - Inter)

    Last year's finish - 14th
    Prospects - Pillon worked miracles at Treviso, but Chievo faces another season-long struggle to stay above the relegation zone. Veteran keeper Marchegiani will be missed although longtime Inter backup Alberto Fontana is an experienced replacement. 17-year-old Enrico Alfonso waits in the wings but is probably just a little too young to feature. Another young player, midfielder Paolo Sammarco of the U-21 national team, should see a lot more action following the return of Roberto Baronio to Lazio.

    If Giuseppe Pillon isn't with a bigger club in the next year or two, I'll be shocked. He's working miracles with Chievo this year after doing the same thing at Treviso.

    Looking at the Chievo roster their are good group of solid Italian players available.

    The team has a solid Italian look to their midfield:-
    Franco Semioli
    Andrea Zanchetta
    Matteo Brighi
    Daniele Franchescini

    Add to that bunch a few other quality players:-
    Salvatore Lanna
    Sergio Pellisier
    Simone Tiribocchi

    and seems the combination has done extremely well with a tinge of foriegn quality!
