how come lecce (15th place in the table) vs roma (17th) is more interesting than napoli (4th place) vs cagliari (12th place) or catania (7th) vs Sampdoria (14th)? :pp

Because Roma will not finish 17th and ask yourself which match you would prefer to watch if you absolutely had to choose. Anyway there is no half a star otherwise Lecce - Roma could have been 2.5

Roma may not finish higher than Napoli, but all things considered, Roma are still the 4th biggest team in Serie A and Roma are the away team to Lecce which makes the match much harder where as Napoli in their home ground should blow away Cagliari. Thats why I put mostly 2 stars for big team hosting Relegation candidate and 3 stars or more for big team away to relegation candidate (and I still consider Cagliari hardly an attractive team on paper). As for Samp v Catania, I dont think this will be a straight battle for UEFA, in other words, i dont think one will finish 7th and the other 8th.

How are Roma the 4th biggest team in SerieA? Honest question. I know last season Napoli had the 3rd best attendance behind Inter and Milan, and I think 4th or 5th most viewed. I also think we have more fans world wide.

I agree though, the Roma game may have more significance because Roma is in trouble, as are Lecce. Our game will also be very competitive though.

Are you one of those Juventini who dreams about Hamsik and Lavezzi joining Juve? :pp

Incredible game in Florence tonight, so many chances! I doubt Inter - Juventus will have a quarter of the amount of chances. Udinese and Fiorentina really need to work on their defences if they want to be contenders, though. Udinese really should have scored more and that's true also for Fiorentina despite them scoring four.

Just as expected Inter - Juventus was not nearly as exciting...too many bloody DMs plus the ghost of Nedved.

Yeah Viola-Udinese was a great game. Udinese schooled them so hard in the first half (only 1 goal, but they owned them real hard, really good going forward), I thought the outcome was a given for the second too, but man did they got mauled instead, Viola were pretty productive in the second. Good thing I randomly saw the game was on, wouldnt have known otherwise.
