    Cherno More (Varna) - Sampdoria (Genua) 0:1

    It seems as if the Bulgarian club has filed a complaint against the ref.

    Hi guys

    Was wondering if Sampdoria have changed any of the strips this year. And where is the best place to get them.

    Reggina, Sampdoria and Parma have all released their targets and have all put Emre on top of it according to various Turkish newspapers......

    Real and Samp have apparently finally come to an agreement on a loan deal for Cassano!

    http://www.goal.com/en/Articolo.aspx?ContenutoId=381799

    Apparently it's a 1 year loan where Samp 1.1 million Cassano's current salary, and Real will pay 2.5 million to cover the rest of his salary. Apparently Cassano also had to agree to take a pay cut of about 500,000 Euros at his end of the deal.

    This is a deal that essentially helps out all 3 parties. Real gets rid of a player that has been a complete pest for them, as well as only having to pay him just over 2 million Euros this year instead of the full 4.5 million Euros per year he was making for him to just sit at home.

    Cassano will get to go to a club where he'll be sure to see regular first team playing time and get his career back on track. He'll also have the opportunity to play with former Roma teammate Vincenzo Montella, and talented center forward Andrea Caracciolo.

    Meanwhile, Samp will get a creative, versatile, and highly talented player in Cassano. Although the past year has really hurt his image, one cannot deny the natural ability and technical skill that Cassano has when he's in form!

    Great to see Cassano at i doriani although he can be a pain.

    He is very gifted but know he has to keep his cool and start playing again. Quagliarella is gone and Flachi too so Antonio needs to return to his best. It would be great if he could continue the tradition of the likes of Vialli, Mancini, Lombardo and co and hopefully with Montella, they can form one of the best partnerships in Italy this season.

    Sampdoria won 2-1 against Siena in Tuscany. Bellucci and Montella, the strikers returning to i doriani, scored the goals. Both were good goals, especially Montella's. I liked how he made the run from the right and played the one-two with Volpi, albeit a deflection. Siena's wasn't too shabby either.

    Sampdoria is quietly playing good football. I chuckled when one of the commentators announced all of the unbeaten teams this week and left Sampdoria off the list. Maybe Sampdoria will surprise some people this year.

    With Mazzarri at the helm and Cassano, Montella and Bellucci in the team, there is potential there. For the last two seasons, expectations haven't been met but I believe that Mazzarri has the ability to pull the right strings. Anyone who helps Reggina to la salvezza must be special.

    I think so. A few weeks ago I read that Cassano was still had a bit of weight on him.

    Cassano picked up a muscular injury today after playing the first 44 minutes in a friendly match. This was considered to be Cassano's first test to see where he stood physicall after an intense 2-3 weeks of training. According to reports he could actually be out for up to a month. :(

    Now it's reported to be a strain only. He might be back before the end of the month.

    There's nothing l'enfant terrible could have done today even if he was healthy. Napoli completely took good care of Samp :D

    Yeah, Sampdoria only had about two decent chances to score. After the first goal, Napoli had all the play.

    Cassano made his Serie A debut with Sampdoria in the 0-0 draw against Genoa. It was an average game but Sampdoria should have won this. Volpi and Palombo were creating chances and Cassano brought some spark when he came on. Montella should have scored in the second half. Instead of controlling the ball after the one-two, he should have hit the ball first-time.

    yeah that was very unlike Montella to miss a chance like that. Usually he puts those away.

    I don't understand why he was subbed off for Cassano though. If you were to think about it logically, it would've made more sense to remove Bellucci for Cassano, and have him play up front with Montella considering the fact that the two of them have plenty of experience and chemistry with each other from their Roma days. They are also arguably the two most talented players in Samp's attack.
