Just noticed that there is no sight of a reggina thread anywhere. Reggina are my second team really, so it was only right to create this thread really.

Reggina hae been fantastic this season, the defence especially with De Rosa and Franceschini, and as usual Mozart has been vital to the sucess of the team.

It's nice to see Nakamura getting a bit of form back as well. Also worth a bit of recognition is Mesto, unfortuantely he'll probably be sold in the summer but he really is a gem.

Reggina - Roma

Stadio Granillo

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

After last season’s final-day survival both these sides will be hoping for some early points to prevent another drawn out relegation battle. While Roma will be expecting to stay clear of last year’s problems, Reggina will need a good start to give them an edge over their relegation rivals. The Amaranti won both encounters last season and will feel they have a real chance of making it three in a row with their home advantage.

Ivan Pelizzoli will be out to prove a point as he makes his debut against his old club, but he will have to return to his best quickly. Antonio Cassano, Vincenzo Montella and Francesco Totti could all start for the Giallorossi in a trident attack and this battle could well decide the outcome of the whole game.

Reggina’s main threat will be young striker Rolando Bianchi. If they are to break their opposition down they will need him to unsettle Roma debutant Samuel Kuffour at the heart of the defence and put some uncertainty into the heads of their big name players. While it is more likely that Roma will emerge victorious, the Stadio Orneste Granillo is notorious for being a difficult place for away teams. If the Calabrian side can take advantage of this there could be an early upset on the cards.

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

Reggina (probable): Pelizzoli; Zoppetti, De Rosa, I Franceschini; Mesto, Paredes, Tedesco, Rigoni, Balestri; Cavalli, Bianchi

Roma (probable): Curci; Panucci, Kuffour, Chivu; Mancini, De Rossi, Perrotta, Cufre; Totti, Montella, Cassano

Sampdoria – Reggina

Stadio Marassi

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

Sampdoria have history on their side after winning both encounters last season. But the games were close affairs finishing 1-0 and 3-2 in favour of the Blucerchiati even if that may be the best the Reggina tifosi can hope for. After 3-0 home defeat against Roma confidence cannot be high in Reggio Calabria despite the fact that Sampdoria also lost on the opening day, though admittedly by a more respectable 2-1 score-line.

Sampdoria Coach Walter Novellino will make just one change for the visit of the Southern outfit. Marco Pisano will start this time out with Lamberto Zauli making way for the left-back. With Fabio Bazzani and Giulio Falcone still injured, both the defensive pair of Luigi Sala and Marcello Castellini and the strike force of Emiliano Bonazzoli and Francesco Flachi will continue. After being dominated against Fiorentina the ‘Doria midfield quartet will be hoping for a more capable performance this week.

Reggina have had four changes forced on them for their journey to Genoa. Two are caused by injuries and suspension, while the other two are the inevitable response to a 3-0 loss on the opening day of the season. Carlos Humberto Paredes is suspended after his red card against Roma and Rolando Bianchi received an injury in the same match. They are set to be replaced by Filippo Carobbio and Luca Vigiani. The other two changes are made in order to make room for the two new arrivals since their opening day defeat. Alessandro Lucarelli and Francesco Cozza are the new faces with Alessandro Zoppetti and Jacopo Balestri reluctantly stepping aside.

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

Sampdoria (probable): Antonioli; Zenoni, Castellini, Sala, Pisano; Diana, Palombo, Edusei, Tonetto; Bonazzoli, Flachi

Reggina (probable): Pelizzoli; Franceschini, De Rosa, Lucarelli; Mesto, Rigoni, Carobbio, Tedesco; Cozza, Vigiani; Cavalli

Reggina suffer Bianchi blow Wednesday 7 September, 2005

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

Reggina striker Rolando Bianchi has been told that he’ll miss the next four weeks of the season through injury.

The Under-21 international has been sidelined after twisting his knee in the Azzurrini’s 2-2 draw in Scotland on Friday night.

Bianchi underwent a number of tests in Rome on Wednesday which ruled out ligament damage, but conceded that he will be unavailable for about a month.

The loss of Bianchi will be a massive blow for the southern minnows who have only just acquired his services.

Bianchi, who spent last term at Cagliari, arrived in August from Atalanta following Emiliano Bonazzoli’s move to Sampdoria.

Reggina have also revealed that fellow new boy Alessandro Lucarelli has a fever, but the defender should be fit to face Doria at the weekend.

Sampdoria 3 - 2 Reggina
Bonazzoli 18 (S), Cozza 28 (R), Volpi 58 (S), Gasbarroni 85 (S), Missiroli 93 (R)
Stadio Luigi Ferraris

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

Reggina felt very hard done by after losing this match despite rattling the woodwork twice and dominating play for long periods, but it's Samp who get the points.

Both these sides lost their opening games and Sampdoria striker Emiliano Bonazzoli made his home debut against the club he left in the summer. Sergio Volpi returned from suspension for Samp, but Reggina were without Carles Paredes due to a ban and the injured Rolando Bianchi.

Reggina had a great start and were extremely unlucky not to take the lead after three minutes, when Simone Cavalli's strike slammed the upright from Vigiani's pass.

Incredibly, moments later Francesco Cozza managed to hit the same post from close range.

However, it was Sampdoria who broke through with former Amaranto star Bonazzoli. The ex-Under-21 international slammed a powerful half-volley into the far corner of the net. He had scored a similar goal for Reggina against Lazio last season.

Reggina eventually bagged a deserved equaliser on the half-hour mark, as Cozza got the final touch amid a crowd of players in front of Francesco Antonioli's goal.

It remained an intense game with Giandomenico Mesto testing Antonioli and a Francesco Flachi overhead kick skimming the crossbar. Flachi set up Volpi's strike that brought a good save out of Pelizzoli.

On the stroke of half-time, Antonioli rushed off his line to close down Cavalli.

At the start of the second period Pelizzoli was called into action on Max Tonetto's close-range effort. It was his last move, as he was replaced by Andrea Gasbarroni.

However, once again, it was Sampdoria who took the lead with a spectacular free kick from captain Volpi. The midfielder missed last week's game through suspension and drilled an unstoppable effort into the top corner.

Reggina weren't about to give in and Cozza's splendid half-volley was tipped over the bar by an acrobatic Antonioli.

The Amaranto must do something about their discipline, as last week Paredes was dismissed and this time Tedesco was shown a straight red card for a late tackle on Gasbarroni.

Gasbarroni got his revenge by scoring Sampdoria's third goal with a well-placed lob, but Reggina certainly deserved more from this match.

It still wasn't over, as young substitute Missiroli made the scoreline more respectable with a tap-in just minutes after stepping on to the field.

Stoppages were action-packed and moments later Missiroli brought down Flachi, but the Samp hitman saw his penalty saved by Pelizzoli.

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

Sampdoria: Antonioli; C Zenoni, Castellini, Pavan, Pisano; Diana (Dalla Bona 63), Palombo, Volpi, Tonetto (Gasbarroni 54); Bonazzoli (Kutuzov 76), Flachi

Reggina - Chievo

Stadio Granillo

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

Reggina will be hoping to show a bit more solidarity in defence after conceding six goals in their last two games. The 3-0 opening day loss to Roma was particularly humiliating as they were completely dominated by the Giallorossi. If they can sure up their defence and attack like they did against Sampdoria last week, then things should improve against Chievo. They will have to do this without the influence of Coach Walter Mazzari though, as he is banned from the touchline for this match.

Chievo are also still trying to find their feet this season. They failed to get into the game against Juventus in Week 1, but the Delle Alpi is a hard place to go for anyone. They followed this with a significantly improved performance, beating Parma 1-0. If they can get hold of the ball in midfield as they did against the Gialloblu, then they would expect to get at least a point from one of the weaker sides in Serie A this year. But if the likes of Matteo Brighi fail to control the play then they could find themselves struggling to live up to their Flying Donkeys reputation.

Mazzari was obviously pleased with Reggina’s improvement against Sampdoria as he is likely to make just one change to the team. This will probably see Luca Rigoni return to the side in place of Giacomo Tedesco, who is suspended after his red card in Week 2. Giuseppe Pillon also seems to have been satisfied with his team’s last performance as he likewise is expected to make just one change to the side that beat Parma. Federico Cossato is likely to return to partner Sergio Pellissier despite a good performance from Brazilian striker Carvalho Amauri in Week 2.

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

Reggina (probable): Pelizzoli; I Franceschini, De Rosa, A Lucarelli; Mesto, Carobbio, Rigoni, Modesto; Cozza, Vigiani; Cavalli

Chievo (probable): Fontana; Moro, Mandelli, D’Anna, Lanna; Semioli, Brighi, Giunti, D Franceschini; Pellissier, Cossato

Reggina 1 - 3 Chievo
Cozza 12 (R), Franceschini 19, 63 (C), Mandelli 77 (C)
Stadio Granillo

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

All of Chievo's goals were scored by defenders, but they proved crucial as Reggina go down to their second consecutive home defeat.

The pressure was on Reggina after conceding six goals in their first two games, but Coach Walter Mazzarri was relegated to the stands due to a touchline ban and Giacomo Tedesco was also suspended.

A long-range Rigoni strike took a deflection and whistled just wide of the far post and Franceschini fired over for Chievo, but Reggina eventually broke through after 12 minutes. The Gialloblu defence was static on a Vigiani cross back into the centre, where Francesco Cozza tapped in from six yards.

Chievo fought back and equalised soon after with Franceschini, but most of the credit must go to Amauri. The Brazilian skipped past several players down the right flank and all the midfielder had to do was sidefoot home.

In the second half, Alberto Fontana was tested by strikes from Vigiani and Cozza, while Rigoni turned over.

Franceschini doubled his tally with another simple tap-in on the hour mark, as once again the credit goes to one of his Chievo teammates. Franco Semioli cast off a series of challenges to reach the byline and chip up a cross for the defender.

Chievo ensured the points were safe in the closing stages, as Davide Mandelli - another defender - rose to nod in from six yards.

It still wasn't over, as Fontana got down to fingertip Cozza's powerful free kick round the upright. Chievo ended the game in 10 men due to Lorenzo D'Anna's red card for a late challenge on Cavalli, but held on for the comfortable victory.

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

Reggina: Pelizzoli; Franceschini, De Rosa, Lucarelli (Ceravolo 84); Mesto, Rigoni (Missiroli 70), Carobbio (Biondini 90), Vigiani, Modesto; Vigiani, Cozza, Cavallli

Palermo - Reggina

Stadio Barbera

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

Palermo will be hoping to continue their current run of good form after two wins and a draw so far this season. With Andrea Caracciolo starting to settle and Stephen Makinwa having found his scoring touch, the Rosaneri will be looking for another win in Sicily.

The biggest improvement at the Stadio Barbera has undoubtedly been centre-back Cristian Terlizzi. After previously scoring just one Serie A goal in his entire career, he has now scored in all three matches this season. Add to this a Reggina defence that has conceded nine goals in three games and this could be a high scoring encounter.

Reggina will be desperate to turn their fortunes around after a dreadful start to the season. The Amaranti still seem to be struggling to deal with the loss of midfield duo Santos Mozart and Shunsuke Nakamura in the summer, and the late additions of Alessandro Lucarelli and Ivan Pelizzoli have so far failed to plug the holes in Serie A’s leakiest defence.

Surprisingly then it is in midfield that Coach Walter Mazzarri has seen fit to make his changes. Luca Vigiani and Luca Rigoni are both expected to miss out, making way for Carlos Paredes and Giacomo Tedesco.

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

Palermo (probable): Santoni; Zaccardo, Terlizzi, Barzagli, Grosso; Santana, Barone, Corini, Bonanni; Caracciolo, Makinwa

Reggina (probable): Pelizzoli; I Franceschini, De Rosa, A Lucarelli; Mesto, Paredes, Carobbio, Modesto; Cozza, Tedesco; Cavalli

Palermo 1 - 0 Reggina
Terlizzi 66 (P)
Stadio Barbera

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

Palermo maintain their remarkable run and so does Christian Terlizzi, the centre-back scoring in his fourth consecutive Serie A match.

The Rosanero were hoping to continue their fine form after two wins and a draw, especially as they welcomed rock bottom Reggina to the Stadio Renzo Barbera. The Amaranto had lost all three games so far, conceding nine goals in total. Giacomo Tedesco and Carlos Paredes returned from suspension for the visitors.

Palermo were unlucky not to take an early lead, as Andrea Caracciolo successfully lobbed Ivan Pelizzoli only to see Franceschini perform a goalline clearance.

Simone Barone's powerful volley was fingertipped over the bar from point-blank range by Pelizzoli, as it remained one-way traffic in Sicily. The ex-Roma goalkeeper also palmed a Stephen Makinwa effort round the near post.

Pelizzoli was holding out under a siege with two great saves on Mario Alberto Santana attempts, but there was bad news for Palermo when captain Eugenio Corini limped off with an injury.

The first half concluded with yet another save from the Reggina goalkeeper on Barone's strike.

A close-range Makinwa header and Caracciolo effort were smothered by Pelizzoli as the siege continued, but Palermo could not find a way through.

The Sicilians eventually broke the deadlock just past the hour mark and it was that man Christian Terlizzi with his fourth goal in four games. A set-piece was cleared as far as the edge of the box, where the centre-back let loose with a low drive that took a deflection along the way.

There was a late scare for the Stadio Barbera crowd, as Ceravolo's header was tipped over the bar and Simone Cavalli's long-range strike skimmed the woodwork.

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

Palermo: Santoni; Zaccardo, Barzagli, Terlizzi, Grosso; Santana, Barone, Corini (Mutarelli 28), Bonanni (Brienza 54); Makinwa (Gonzalez 79), Caracciolo

Reggina: Pelizzoli; Cannarsa, Franceschini, De Rosa, Lucarelli; Mesto, Paredes, Tedesco; Missiroli (Ceravolo 77), Cozza (Vigiani 59); Cavalli

Samp look to keep Bonazzoli Friday 23 September, 2005

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

Sampdoria have reportedly already contacted Reggina with the aim of signing Emiliano Bonazzoli on a permanent deal.

The former Under-21 international only arrived on loan in the summer, but boss Walter Novellino is eager to keep the talent at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris for some time to come.

Bonazzoli was netted following an injury to Fabio Bazzani and the player has responded with four goals in four games.

"I am obviously going through a great period of form, even if I did struggle to adapt to the system at the start," said the ex-Parma man.

"However, I am less isolated in attack with this club which gives me more opportunities to score goals.

"But I want to underline that I am scoring because of my teammates. They deserve real credit too."

Bonazzoli’s stunning start to his Samp career has inevitably led to talk of a possible Italian international call-up.

"The national team represents a dream for any footballer," he said. "But I am well aware that Italy already have some very strong forwards."

The 24-year-old was a success at Azzurrini level after scoring seven goals in 17 games for the U-21 outfit.

Reggina 2 - 0 Udinese
Cozza 43 (R), Cavalli 77 (R)
Stadio Granillo

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

A screamer from captain Francesco Cozza and Simone Cavalli's debut Serie A goal earn Reggina their first win of the season and send Udinese hurtling towards a third defeat on the trot.

Udinese made the trip to rock bottom Reggina without Vincenzo Iaquinta, who has been frozen out of the squad due to a contract dispute. Fausto Rossini took his place in the trident attack alongside former Amaranto hero David Di Michele. Antonio Di Natale was also ruled out by an illness.

Reggina made some curious tactical changes in a bid to end their run of four straight defeats, as they started the match without strikers. Creative midfielders Vigiani and Francesco Cozza were fielded to rob the Udinese defence of focus points.

The home Curva of the Stadio Granillo was left empty for the first half in protest at the strict new laws governing ticket sales and entry into Italian stadiums.

Reggina had the first real chance after 16 minutes, as Giandomenico Mesto found space down the right flank and his cross was redirected by Vigiani's header, but Valerio Bertotto's goalline clearance rescued Udinese.

Udinese fought back with Barreto taking advantage of Mesto's error, but shots from Rossini and Sulley Ali Muntari were charged down before Jose Luis Vidigal's effort was deflected wide of the target.

Under-21 international Mesto had another good opportunity when he sprung the offside trap, but the winger blazed a weak finish wide with only the goalkeeper to beat.

At the other end, Barreto placed a lob over the on-rushing Ivan Pelizzoli, though Juri Cannarsa was ready on the line for a clearance.

Cozza aimed a fantastic effort at the goal on 39 minutes, as the Reggina captain trapped the ball with his right foot before unleashing a powerful strike with his left that skimmed the upright.

It proved to be a mere rehearsal for Cozza's opener on the stroke of half-time. The midfielder turned round his marker on the edge of the box and thumped a right-foot screamer into the top near corner of the net.

Vincent Candela came on for the quiet Barreto after the break, switching Udinese to a five-man midfield. Stefano Mauri drilled wide from distance and goalscorer Cozza made way for Simone Cavalli.

The second half was increasingly tense and a scuffle broke out on 75 minutes when Vidigal tried to get the ball off Tedesco after a free kick had been awarded and shoved him to the ground from behind. The Portuguese midfielder was fortunate to only receive a booking for the incident.

Moments later, Reggina doubled their lead, as Modesto sprung the offside trap and lifted his cross for subsitute Cavalli to tap in from six yards. It was the striker's first ever Serie A goal.

Rossini blazed wide from close range, even though the move would not have counted due to an offisde position. There was bad news for Reggina, as Ivan Pelizzoli pulled up during an attempted save and clutched his upper thigh. The ex-Roma goalkeeper limped off to be replaced by Nicola Pavarini.

Udinese ended the game in 10 men, as Rossini was sent off in stoppages for a futile kick from behind on Franceschini as the ball was running out for a throw-in. The ex-Atalanta striker - Iaquinta's replacement - will be suspended for next week's game against Lazio and the travelling fans chanted Iaquinta's name in protest at the club's hard-line stance.

Udinese crash to their third straight defeat and it can surely be no coincidence that in two games without Iaquinta they have failed to hit the back of the net.

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

Reggina: Pelizzoli (Pavarini 86); Lanzaro, Franceschini, De Rosa, Cannarsa (Carobbio 56); Mesto, Paredes, Tedesco, Modesto; Vigiani, Cozza (Cavalli 68)

Udinese: De Sanctis; Bertotto, Natali, Felipe; D Zenoni, Mauri, Muntari (Obodo 65), Vidigal (Tissone 78); Rossini, Barreto (Candela 46), Di Michele

Your Preferred Formation (For a PES5 Option File)

Hi guys, I'm currently working on an option file for Pro Evolution Soccer 5, the next in the series of the great football game, due out this month.

What I need help with is the formations for each team in Serie A, the teams preferred starting line up and captain/set piece takers.

I've made other threads in the Lazio, Parma and Udinese club forums, so far and I'll make some more for the other teams in the general Italian footy forum. But what I want you to help me with is the formation for Reggina (since this is your thread! :D )

Here is an example for the sort of thing I'm looking for:

-----------------------------Dida-------------------------------------

----Cafu----------Nesta------------Stam-----------Maldini-----

-----------------------------Pirlo-------------------------------------

-------------Gattuso-------------------------Seedorf------------------

----------------------------Kaka'--------------------------------------

-----------------Shevchenko--------Gilardino-----------------------------


CAPTAIN: MALDINI
PENALTIES: PIRLO
LEFT CORNERS: PIRLO
RIGHT CORNERS: PIRLO
FK - NEAR: PIRLO
FK - FAR: PIRLO

The option file is for PESFan.com, and we're hoping to have it ready for the release date of PES5 in a few weeks. It should have all transfers, formations, player names, strips etc.

I've asked on some other forums as well, but I need the help of the Xtratime members to make sure we can get the option file up to date and ready for release day.

Any help is greatly appreciated, cheers. :) :thumbsup:

Xtratime doesn't need a Reggina forum as we're just not a big enough club, and we don't have enough fans.
Take a look at the Brescia forum or even the Udinese forum...or some of the English club forums... :thumbsup: It's not about the amount of people that post.

There is also the issue that I can't speak Italian and there isn't much news, and I'm not able to get many of their games, and when I do it's against the big teams so I just post my thoughts there. I'll just post here more often, and start threads on Reggina here, if there is a topic that would be good to discuss.
