So this is apparently some sort of local rivalry yeah? (excuse me I'm not familiar with Italian geography :D) We went down 2-1 i believe in the first round, so it's time for revenge. We've obviously been playing very well as of late, i imagine it has been our best 5-game run (considering we've gained 10 pts in the last 5 games, when we only gained 12 in the first 16!) but Bolgona have been playing equally well gaining 11 pts in their last 5 games, as well as their win last week against Milan. Let's hope if anything that win gives them too much confidence, as opposed to firing them up even more. Livorno beat Milan then lost to Chievo last week, so who knows.

It seems Morfeo is still injured, so i don't know if he'll be played midweek. Perhaps we'll save him for Inter on Sunday. But surprisingly in the last fcparma.com update it says "Bonera, Cannavaro, Gilardino, Morfeo and Savi worked apart." ... I'm hoping Bonera and Gila have just been given extra rest from the weekends game and are not hurt. Imagine playing without Bonera, Morfeo or Gila :eekani: Everyone else seems to be fit, so assuming Bonera and Gila are fine, i imagine yet again we'll play:

frey
cannavaro-bonera-bovo-contini/bettarini
fabio-grella
marco-bresc-vigna
gila​

Of course the other question, Will Bettarini start? He's been training with us now for a week and a half ... so im not sure. I imagine definately by Sunday he'll play, but not sure about Thursday, let's hope though.

Unfortunately, your formation is right only on 10 from 11 positions. Bresc is missing this game because he is suspended, so we really have to hope that Morfeo will be okay until Thursday. I think we could give Pisanu another try on the right wing with Vignaroli central if our regista will not play.
Bettarini will not start on Thursday, I am pretty sure about that.



edit: According to Gazzetta di Parma he is not yet fully fit and is in doubt for the Bologna match.

Damn. That's not good about Bresc. Starting Pisanu shows that we are far from full strength. I really hope Morfeo is fit. Marco - Morfe - Vigan is still a good attacking lineup. And i assume you meant left wing for pisanu. Marco aint going nowhere.

Do you think Betteraini will debut against Inter? Is he still just trying to get back to match fitness aftewr being out so long? Or Petro is just hesitant to start him yet.

EDIT - That's Morfeo you're referring to?

It is especially not good because Bresc has been our best player against Udinese along with Marco, we would really need him because he is one of very less creative players in our squad. Yeah I mean left wing, even if Marco often moved to the left wing under Baldini...

Honestly I dont see why Carmignani should field Bettarini against Inter. Unless Contini doesnt make some really stupid faults against Bologna, he should stay on this position for the Inter-match too.

Is he still just trying to get back to match fitness aftewr being out so long?
Yes I think thats the problem, in Italy we would say "gli manca il ritmo partita" :D

EDIT - That's Morfeo you're referring to?
Yes.

Sounds like a plan. I've always thought Contini was a better natural CD than a left back. I saw him play centrally alongside Canna (i think) earlier in the season against Inter and he played very well. That was his first game i think.

Ferronetti - Bonera - Contini - Bettarini

Looks pretty good.

We're SO losing this game. We should definetly field some primaveras in this one. Sorry but we suck in derbys.

Morfeo is out pretty sure, he has worked apart again. We may field a 4-2-3-1 with Bolano-Grella as the 2 DMs and Bresciano, Simplicio, Marchionni as OMs. Another solution would be a 4-4-1-1 with Bettarini on the left wing in midfield and with Bresc and Simplicio in the centre.

Which idea do you like more?

I thought Vignaroli would be a starter also. -- And...Bresciano is suspended, isn't he? That means we may field something like 4-3-3 with Bolano-Simplicio-Grella and Marchionni-Gila-Vignaroli.

Yes Bresc is suspended, I knew something here looked to good for us :D

So these are 2 possible solutions:

4-4-1-1

Gilardino
Vignaroli
Bettarini - Grella- Simplicio - Marchionni
Contini - Bovo - Bonera - Cannavaro
Frey


4-2-3-1

Gilardino
Vignaroli - Simplicio - Marchionni
Grella - Bolano
Bettarini/Contini - Bovo - Bonera - Cannavaro
Frey

Well he's a specialist against Parma :fero: and he is supposed to play this time also BUT I don't feel a loser-atmosphere at the moment actually, he won't score! :stuckup: Bellucci and Locatelli should be the 2 ofensive players, unica punta sara Ferrante! :mad:

Is any one of us going to see the game on TV? I'll have the game on TV here but the kick off time is 3.30am this Friday. I should be in Dreamland because of my new job... :(

I am happy that Marco Ferrante will play instead of Tare, who is better IMO. Bellucci and Locatelli are always dangerous, especially against os.

@Shanie: Yes I will see it...

Guys buck up don't get into this rut where you think you are going to lose all the time. Your team has shown improvement, I know it isn't great but with some pluck, and some luck and a couple goals by Gila you'll do fine.

It's our derby-statistics that speak against us. We never won a derby in a long time.
