The symbol of the reborn Genoa Manuel Coppola returned after his injury in the group of Mr. Gasperini.
Also Andrea Masiello and Marco Borriello are expected to return in the group before the match against Livorno on Sunday 16th September. With a little luck also Cesare Bovo recuperates within 11 days, so Mr. Gasperini can make a choice between all the 22 players of the playlist.
Genoa played a good match and had the best chances to win this match far away in Sicilie. After all a draw was the most right result. See last match for more details.
Our friends who are now on the cruiseship can skip their Arena-video’s. Genoa Club Amsterdam made an perfect impression of their Arena-trip. Hold on, our holiday movie maker starts by pressing ‘the play button’.
Okay, we don’t have a professional camera, we don’t have hearable sound and we don’t have enough light to make a good movie. But we DO have a message from Tomas Skuhravy, and that does matter…

Aguilera and Skuhravy in the Amsterdam Arena.
Almost 200 Genoa fans joined thursdaynight a guided tour in the Amsterdam Arena, homestadium of AFC Ajax. After a visit in the Ajax museum and shop , Hans Otten (president GCA) welcomed the fans and suprised them with the highlights of the famous Uefa-game Genoa-Ajax on the megascreen. With a laugh, Hans wanted to skip the last Winter-goal as a sign of friendship. The Genoa fans refused his offer. History is history!

Our heroes Pato Aguilera and Tomas Skuravy were also in the Arena and ‘tasted’ the pitch. Bello Johnny van ‘t Schip was not in his Ajax-stadium. He was delighted to come, but had to watch a game in his role of trainer of the Dutch national team.
This weekend we show you a movie of this wonderfull evening. Keep an eye on the website of Genoa Club Amsterdam!
We finished in Volendam to eat some raw fish.

Before the kick-off the captains of Genoa (Ciccio Bega) and Milan (Ambrosini) gave flowers to the sister of murdered Vincenzo Claudio Spagnolo. After the match Milan-players clapped their hands to thank Genoa-fans. Both clubs hope that in January Genoa-fans can visit the return in San Siro and next year Milan-fans can come to Genova. Let see what the future will bring us.
Genoa lost the first match in Serie A against Milan. The team of trainer Ancelotti did not change anything this summer and was simply too strong for Genoa that played offensive as ever. See last match for more details.
