    I saw the game and i felt that the team didnt look up to Nakamura, they left him out.
    He got very few passes, instead they passed the Roma players, bad bad. I hope he will look for a new club soon....

    That's a shame.

    Nakamura is one of the very few Japanese players who I actually respect.

    Interesting Article: Adrian Mutu on the Serie A

    Mutu hits out at Italian football

    ROME, Nov 3 (Reuters) - Chelsea striker Adrian Mutu says he has no
    regrets at leaving Italian club Parma to come to Stamford Bridge.

    The 24-year-old Romanian - a 15.8 million pounds ($26.8 million)
    close-season signing - scored his fifth league goal of the season in
    Chelsea's 1-0 win over Everton at the weekend and returns to Italy on
    Tuesday for a Champions League group G match against Lazio.

    "I'm going through a fantastic period of form with Chelsea at the
    moment," Mutu was quoted as saying in Italian sports newspaper
    Controcampo on Monday.

    "I made the right choice (coming to England), even though I miss
    Parma. But I certainly don't miss Italian football.

    "In England the referees stop the game for 10 to 12 fouls per match.
    In Italy, (that number is) 60. I prefer the British attitude.
    Football's a game for men.

    "Then the spectators over here are great - crowds of 40,000 or 50,000
    people who support you and never whistle at you. It's not like that
    in Italy.

    "Over here they appreciate me. You (Italians) only revere Brazilians
    and Argentines. In Italy, if you're from the East it's a different


    There you have it, straight from the mouth of a man who's played
    there. Well we've (my friends and I... my friends are English and Mexican) suspected it for a long time, that we don't
    believe that Italian teams give a fair chance for those who aren't
    Brazilian or Argentine and here's some mounting evidence to prove
    that's so.
    And as for "if you're from the East it's a different story," I think
    we know that quite well... especially if from the Far East. I even
    saw on a board on Shunsuke Nakamura at Reggina and how
    the players don't even pass to him.

    mistake in previous post

    Guys, the part under the line of stars was written by myself for another football group that I actually help run, so that's why I mentioned the "in the forum" bit.

    Mutu hit it right on the head. I was watching Milan vs. Juve yesterday and the ref was atrocious. He called every little contact there was. Whenever Camaranesi got tackled and fell like he's being shot in the head, the ref bought it and called a foul. In EPL you would rarely see cheap calls like that.
