SOCCER-ITALY/Hello again everyone, and I hope some of the media material we pointed out to you on Monday helped your coffee/afternoon tea/cocktails go down well.

However, Mark Meadows makes the point in a piece for Reuters here that this is far from a vintage Serie A season and the current Milan side would have been nowhere near the scudetto in other recent years.

Over to England, and with the most congested bottom half of the table for years the Premier League’s relegation fight is set to go down to the wire. Could Mexico striker Carlos Vela be the answer for West Bromwich Albion’s survival? Read here.

Of course the big game on Tuesday is Chelsea against league leaders Manchester United, but the London club are a hot topic in blog world for a very different reason. Kaka to move to Stamford Bridge? Really? Find out here.
