    -Sam Innamorati (Australia) 

    Why has De Ligt been so prone to giving away Handballs? Even if I felt yesterday's one was a bit harsh & he really had no option. But can you point out the reason why he has been like this? Or is it just bad luck? #ChroniclesQandA
    -Kartik (New Dehli)

    Do you think Nicolo Rovella on loan at Genoa could be a potential candidate to step into Juve's uninspiring midfield alongside Locatelli?

    Mina is well again as both she and Nicky enjoyed a Christmas and new year break, and Serie A in 2022 is off to a flyer with more crazy matches and tennis scores.
    The most incredible match came from the Eternal City as Allegri's Juventus staged an unexpected comeback against Mourinho's Roma in a 7-goal thriller. Mina and Nicky break down how it all happened, as well as the importance of Alvaro Morata's contribution to Juve's comeback, Jose Mourinho's lack of ideas to close out the match after Roma went ahead 3-1, and Federico Chiesa's knee injury and the implications for Juventus' season and Italy's World Cup qualification prospects.
    Elsewhere, Inter continued its seemingly unstoppable run with a win over Lazio.
    We break down what happened with new year match postponements and new COVID-19 protocols for the league.
    Milan produced some excellent performances with wins over Roma and Venezia in the opening rounds of the year with Rafael Leão shining for the rossoneri.
    And, in an interesting conversation, Nicky and Mina offer differing insights and opinions as we go deep on Lorenzo Insigne's decision to leave his home town and club Napoli to sign for Toronto FC in the MLS.

    05:28 Roma v Juventus
    31:09 COVID-19 postponement chaos
    38:04 Inter v Lazio
    47:44 Napoli and Insigne
    61:30 Milan

    La Moviola: a look back at our 2021

    La Moviola: a look back at our 2021

    Yes, we're doing what every podcast seems to be doing lately, and looking back at some of the many Serie A Chronicles highlights of 2021.
    Here's a fun episode with snippets from our guests which included Mark Bosnich, Sacha Pisani, Gabriele Marcotti and Venezia's American star Gianluca Busio.
    We also take a look back at Mina's and Nicky's reaction right after Italy's final World Cup Qualifier match where they failed to qualify directly for the World Cup, and instead were left to face the dreaded playoffs.
    And we laugh at Mina's shout-out to our Chronicles Tifosi with one of her famous limericks.
    We'll be back to properly kick off 2022 next week after the first rounds of Serie A for the year!

    01:02 Mark Bosnich's almost-Juventus story
    11:28 Sacha Pisani asks whether Federico Chiesa should be looking to move on
    13:15 We got the band back together with Gab Marcotti
    25:26 Gianluca Busio talks Venezia and Italian football tactics
    30:03 We loved talking about Fiorentina's Dušan Vlahović
    39:09 Mancini's Italy gave us a footballing heart-attack
    48:48 Mina introduces us to her poetic prowess

    Chronicles Q&A #13

    Chronicles Q&A #13

    It's our final Q&A for 2021!
    Get your questions in for Mina and Nicky for the Serie A Chronicles Q&A show. Each week we answer your questions tweeted to us at @serieAchronpod using the hashtag #ChroniclesQandA.

    This week's questions:
    Nicky & Mina, you two are the Serie A Santa. You get to hand out a lump of coal to one player and one coach each and a Panettone to one player and one coach each. Who is on your naughty and nice list so far this season & what flavour Panettone? Buon Natale! 
    -Panettone Dave (formerly Inter Dave, Hamilton, Canada) 

    Would it be crazy for Milan to try Theo as a left winger? I mean, he's got everything you want from your winger, plus Rebic has been out for most of the season so far.
    -Siddhant (Sagar, India)

    Could we see an era of dominance for Inter over the next 5 years? Inzaghi will probably stay that long as will Beppe Marotta. Players can be sold and good replacements brought into the 3-5-2 system even on a budget. Train keeps on going year after year? 
    -Superkliq1

    Inter are the Campioni d'Inverno

    Inter are the Campioni d'Inverno

    In our final Serie A Chronicles "main show" of 2021, we go deep into discussion about the Winter Champions - Campioni d'Inverno - Inter, which is fast becoming Mina's favorite team.
    We discuss the Salernitana ownership crisis and whether they will be booted from Serie A after the new year, with their situation compounded by a COVID-19 scare and match postponement amid the Omicron variant wave taking hold in Italy and Europe.
    Is Juventus at risk of creeping in to the top 4 now that they're only four points away? And do they lose motivation against smaller teams?
    We smash Milan and Napoli together because they played against each other and appear to have the highest chances of being the "anti-Inter" and... should Kessie's disallowed goal have stood?
    Mourinho created a blueprint for stopping Gasperini's Atalanta in Roma's Tammy Abraham-inspired counter-attacking masterclass, and then threw it away against Sampdoria in a dull draw.
    Maurizio Sarri is an enigma.
    And we wrap up the show with the highlight of the year from the best Italian commentary duo: Fabio Caressa and Giuseppe Bergomi.

    03:38 Inter
    19:34 Salernitana
    30:18 Juventus
    42:56 Milan and Napoli
    61:28 Atalanta and Roma
    69:12 Lazio

    Chronicles Q&A #12

    Chronicles Q&A #12

    Get your questions in for Mina and Nicky for the Serie A Chronicles Q&A show. Each week we answer your questions tweeted to us at @serieAchronpod using the hashtag #ChroniclesQandA.

    This week's questions:
    Is Serie A losing its identity with almost every team playing high-press attacking football OR is this the best way forward?
    -Bully Maguire (New Delhi)

    I have been asking people this question for years. If y’all can answer on the next pod. Why do people undervalue Serie A? The answer I commonly get is that it's slow and boring. I understand it's not what it used to be but every league has ups and downs yet Serie A gets more hate.
    -Inder Mann (Brooklyn)

    Considering Giovanni Simeone’s current form, will he finally find himself a home in Serie A following his loan spell at Hellas and where do you think he will end up? 
    -Inter Dave (Hamilton, Canada)

    Can you let us know in your next Q&A pod what's happened to Juventus's defence this season and what needs to happen for them to stop leaking goals? Did Max Allegri simply inherit a well drilled defence from Antonio Conte and ride its coat tails for five years during his first stint at the club?
    -Eoumangios
