Italian Footy

Recommended Posts

Used to love Lazio back before I realised that they were a bunch of Nazi c****. Beppe Signori, Alen Boksic and Pierluigi Casiraghi was a top strike force.

 

signori was a fantastic footballer. and a scruff as well, which i always liked. looked like he could just as easily being having a kickaround in an alley or on a car park.

There's a certain romanticism to the golden period of that league isn't there? You don't find it anywhere else really. The depth of quality players across the league was phenomenal.

The football was frequently boring as f***.

A lot of the players were overrated as well, few came to England and were poor

 

Think at the time they just seemed sexier because we didn't have any exciting overseas players in England

Yeah, was always worth watching Sgorio for the highlights but trying to keep enough attention to watch a match as a 12 year old was impossible

Andrea Pirlo's autobiography I Think Therefore I Play is a great read; candid and funny. His chapter on the CL final in Istanbul is a cracker.

 

It is, but my favourite bit about it is the constant haranguing of Rino Gattuso. Hilarious.

Such as? Who moved in their prime who was poor? Veron and?

 

Shevchenko moved too late, and despite what the stats will tell you (28 in 40 the season prior), I recall there were plenty of "he's past it" comments when he moved to Chelsea.

Well, yes. Same goes for the Spanish league at its peak. Always found the German league the most exciting to watch.

I think the romanticism in the UK is because of the channel 4 coverage isn't it? Free to air live football and an entertaining weekly round up.

 

I never forgave them for abandoning the coverage of Roma's title win.

Batistuta was my favourite - what a striker.

 

Serie A does bring back memories, shame it’s gone downhill so much these days. Milan were very poor against a very average Arsenal team in the Europa.

Milan have Fabio Borini on loan from Sunderland! And Suso. Other than that I recognised maybe 3 other names in their team (I admit to not paying much attention). Compare to their lineup in Istanbul, what happened to them?

Borini is hilariously bad, like he’s only recently started playing the game of football.

I've really enjoyed what I have seen this season. Lots of goals, plenty of drama. Juve got two in the last ten minutes to beat Inter last night. I wish it weren't so but Napoli are going to be heartbroken again.
