YEAH!!



Ghirardi confirms Cuper deal Tuesday 11 March, 2008

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

President Tommaso Ghirardi is ready to unveil Hector Cuper as the new Coach of Parma this evening.

Di Carlo was given his marching orders after the Crociati’s 2-1 defeat against Sampdoria on Sunday.

After two days of fierce speculation with Nevio Scala, Gianni De Biasi and Carlo Mazzone in the frame, Ducali chief Ghirardi has revealed his selection.

“The contract hasn’t been signed yet, but the deal is practically done,” he stated at the Collecchio Sports Centre.

“We had 36 hours to decide and in the end we opted for an experienced boss like Cuper because he can quickly help us out of this situation.

“Cuper will arrive in Italy later this afternoon and we will formalise the deal that is already in place.

“We have spoken on the telephone and hopefully a contract will be signed this evening.”

The new man joins Parma with the Emilia-Romagna outfit only clear of the drop zone on goal difference.

Cuper has been out of work since leaving Real Betis last year and is best remembered in the peninsula for his spell at Inter.

The Argentine tactician was at San Siro between 2001 and 2003 when he secured second and third-placed finishes and lost out to city rivals Milan in the Champions League semi-finals of 2002-03.

This is not a coincidence that Parma hires him just this day that Inter plays a knock-out game against Liverpool, it is a sign for Inter. A sign that Inter will get eliminated from the Champions League tonight!

Cúper wasn't good with Betis but then again, that club is such a circus with Lopera and his men.

Doesnt Cuper have your best record in the CL with a semi final? ;)
Yeah, apparently they think winning a paper Scudetto and another against non-opposition is great in comparison to Cuper's tenure.

Talk about warped.

Indeed, which was probably the biggest injustice ever in the history of football, we ****ing battered you.
Nah man thats what people liked to believe but back then our whole game plan was
Toldo--------------->Vieri-->Goal

Simple as that ;)

How many scudetto's do you believe you have won, say in the last 13 years?

Mancini did have it easier than Cuper, true, in the sense that the latter had to compete with Moggi's Maserati-gifting and referee-locking habits..

Overall Mancio did better - better football, more silverware, derby wins (Cuper only won 1 derby out of 7..Mancini won 4 out of 9)

Cuper Positively did make Emre to be a damn good player..... Only Cuper.

Cuper's ultra tactical display did make us go further in CL...

Given a choice now between him and Mancio, i'd still pick mancio.
