The draw for the joke that is the Coppa italia was announced today. Samp have been very lucky (partly due to the 6th place finish last year) and only enter the fray in the eights, and are most likely to play against siena. After that it's likey to be Udinese, and if we beat them we'll be in the semis.

I'm not a fan of this competition because it's so predictable, no one playing in it atually gives a shit, and the top 8 teams in serie A can win it by only playing 4 ties. Also, it's dumb because, apart from the final, it involves home and away legs, which is a waste of everybody's time. That said, we won't be bothered by it until november, which means we can concentrate on the league and UEFA cup....

Yes it's an idiotic format at the moment, to make it more interesting and cut the number of games they should make it more like the FA cup, ie include teams from lower leagues and make it direct elimination.

November looks to be a hardcore month with serie A, Coppa Italia, and (hopefully..) UEFA cup as well..
