2004/2005 Siena Thread
siena drew 1-1 with bologna this past weekend...if you havent checked out the highlights, take a look at Chiesa's goal...real nice curling shot tucked under the crossbar...and for a good laugh check out siena's kits...
It really was a beautiful goal. I was saying to my husband that, no matter how old you are, if you can do stuff like that at some point in your career, you can always do it. The part that gets harder is finding the space to get the shot off.
As for Siena's unis, I don't think they'd look nearly so clownish if they just had solid-colored (black OR white, not BOTH!!) shorts to go with that jersey. Somebody didn't quite visualize the whole thing together.
Chiesa's goal was a gem. As far as the kits, I agree with Sue that if not for the shorts, they wouldnt look half bad. I only realized after watching the highlights of Siena-Bologna that the shorts were split too...
Bologna's away kit of all-red was interesting as well. Never seen them in those colors.
At halftime Lazio and Siena are tied 0-0...
AC Milan: 2
Siena striker Flo sinks Roma in the Cup:
Relegation zoners Siena have sacked coach Gigi Simoni and replaced him with another Gigi, this one Gigi De Canio.
Double dose of good news today for struggling Siena - they have finalized a co-ownership deal which will allow Genoa creative midfielder Francesco Cozza (formerly of Reggina) to join them for the rest of the season. This is the third player they have picked up on loan so far, following Massimo Maccarone from Parma and Giovanni Pasquale from Inter.
Also, Roberto D'Aversa has had his gambling suspension reduced and will be available for this weekend's Palermo game in.
Another decent loan signing by Siena was announced today as they picked up Juve's Croatian international Igor Tudor. As opposed to Atalanta, it looks like Siena is making a real effort to stay up:
I really liked the additions siena made in january, especially Tudor.
they are now unbeaten in five with wins over lazio, milan and now roma today! Looks like they are on the road to staying up to coincide with their new stadium for next season...
Improbable is the best word I can think of to describe Siena's last two victories. I guess I was right saying they'd made some good pickups in mid-season. It just took a little while for things to start turning their way. If they survive, as they seem likely to do at this point, it'll be a real feather in the cap of Gigi Di Canio. Surely, he'll latch onto a big club someday.
EDIT: Okay, looking back, I guess I didn't really call their pickups "good" at the time, but I did think enough of them to post the news.
Valiant effort by Siena, but they lost to Udinese 3-2 today...
