Italian football!

Don't support any team outside of Spurs, but because of Channel 4's Football Italia and Gazzetta Show's in the 90's I was fixated with Serie A. Any fandom was driven mainly by the players than the clubs, so Baresi, Costacurta, Maldini, van Basten, Donadoni, Baggio, Vialli, Batistuta, Crespo etc. etc. etc...Then of course Gazza to Lazio.

All this straight after the World Cup of Italia 90, Maradona leaving Napoli in a storm, the stage was set for ten years of fantasy and education. To this day football hasn't been better covered.
 
Now Serie A is 3@ league after:
Liga
Premier League

The great problem are stadiums. Only 4-5 clubs are stadium’s property.
Different from english stadium.
less money consequence of less good ideas

Always has a soft spot for Siena. They went bankrupt a few years back and then were refounded. Now playing in Seria C.

I followed Lazio because of Gazza, but that soon changed when i learnt more about their fascist fans....

When playing FM i would manage Sampdoria, Parma or Torino so i have a soft spot for those clubs.
 
Benevento as my mother comes from Pietrelcina which is a village 12km away. Back to back promotions but too much too soon. Also keep an eye AC Milan as my cousins up there follow them and they were founded by English men as were a few Italian teams. Also loved Marco Van Basten
