Serie A Season 2011/2012 Review

This weekend, the Italian League Serie A Season 2011/2012 will soon be rolling again. The question remain the same, who would win the scudetto? Apparently will not be far away from the war two clubs from the city of Milan, AC Milan and Inter Milan.

Last season, AC Milan finally ending their eight years without Serie A title after finishing in first place with 82 points, six points more than the runner up, Inter Milan, which during the previous five seasons always win the Scudetto.

How about with this season? Here's the Italian Serie A Review for next season.

The lack of star players who competed in Serie A could not be separated from the financial problems that plagued the Italian club. Italy is currently overshadowed the two neighboring league, the Premier League and Spanish League, which is moving aggressively in the transfer of players. For example their two biggest clubs at this time, Milan and Inter.

Milan itself was not so rich after only bring in two players for free, Philippe Mexes and Taye Taiwo, while Kevin-Prince Boateng also be achieved by joint ownership of Genoa before the Rossoneri wholly owned last May.

The decline also appeared in the Inter camp. The most prominent is SamuelEto'o on the sale of Russia's rich club, Anzhi Makachkala. Though Eto'o huge contribution for the Nerazzurri in the past two seasons. Many believe, proceeds from the sale of the Cameroon striker will be used to make up for that unsettle Carlos Tevez at Manchester City.

However, Milan and Inter still the main competitor. Another competitor probably came from AS Roma, Juventus and Napoli.

AS Roma bring some fresh player, like Bojan and Marten Stekelenburg. Those player will likely improve AS Roma performance next year. Juventus, with combination of young and old player are hopefully bring more competition to Italian Serie A season 2011/2012.

With such condition, Italian Serie A season 2011/2012 seems to be a little bit inferior compare to English Premiere League or Spanish La Liga. However, as usual, Italia seems to always could get up from their bad condition, like in 2006, when they become World Champion, or 2009/2010, when Inter Milan, unpredictably winning the European Champions League. We'll see!
