  6. 23 November 2025 That's a very good question, @Tajerio. I realised after the Milan game that we hadn't played any of the bottom four yet. Incidentally, Parma have just sacked their manager. Not surprising, really, given they have played 13, lost 13. We play all of the bottom four in our next five Serie A games - Chievo (18th) at home next up, (then 7th-placed Fiorentina away after the home cup-tie against Serie B Perugia), with Parma (20th) at home, SPAL (17th) away and Brescia (19th) at home to follow. You can say that again. Last season's 1st, 2nd and 4th in our opening three Serie A fixtures was a very difficult start and one point from those three fixtures put us firmly on the back-foot. I can honestly say this is my most challenging season of the save so far. I'm not used to being the underdog the majority of the time, trying to find a way to stay in games and nick something at the other end. Hopefully, the Serie A league table will look a lot better for Sampdoria in five games time but the question is how to approach those four games against the bottom four - Parma, Brescia, Chievo and SPAL?
  7. Sunday 23rd November 2025 Post-match: AC Milan 1-1 Sampdoria - Serie A (13) Blucerchiati Messaggero: All the pundits expected Milan to win comfortably today but you defied the odds and came away from the San Siro stadium with a draw. Stuniverse: Si. Grazie. Milano are good team... we knew we had to make it difficult for them... and we did. We play well defensively... and when they scored... the players show character and spirit to fight their way back into the game. I thought it no more than we deserve for the hard work and effort the players put in today. Stuniverse (Sampdoria manager): Blucerchiati Messaggero: You sprung something of a surprise today with your 4-1-2-3 formation. What was the thinking behind that? Stuniverse: It one of a few systems we've worked on in training. We changed to it a couple of times in other games and I liked what I saw when used second-half against Roma. We felt we had nothing to lose against Milano and decided to spring a surprise. I very happy how we looked out there and we got good result. I thought we deserve it.

  8. Sunday 23rd November 2025 AC Milan (4th) v Sampdoria (14th) - Serie A (13) Team Selection Sampdoria make THREE changes. IN: Andrea Cristana (DC), Jakub Jankto (MC), Ricardo Esgaio (MR).

  9. Sunday 23rd November 2025 Pre-match v AC Milan (a) - Serie A (13) Match Preview Blucerchiati Messaggero: We're 12 matches into the Serie A season and Sampdoria have been unable to threaten the top-half of the league table. How do you sum up the season so far? Stuniverse: It be tough. We had difficult start play Lazio, Juventus, Inter and get uno point. That make things uphill for us... it been tough but we strive do better. Last six games we only lose two... and we did beat Genoa. Sergio Volpi (Franciacorta manager): Blucerchiati Messaggero: Franciacorta manager Sergio Volpi has been outspoken about your current poor form. Surely it can't be helpful having a former Sampdoria fans favourite critiscising you in public? Stuniverse: No. Not helpful at all... guess he entitled own opinion... and he still want Blucerchiati do well. We all want do better... be higher up table... and we work hard in training make that happen. Stuniverse (Sampdoria manager): Unavailable: Jairo Riedewald (suspended), Andrea Chiodo (hernia).
