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

Soft spot for AC Milan because of Maldini... What a player! But I've never really had an Italian team I liked watching.

Been over to ac Milan a couple of times as my mate supports them..his old dear is Italian. Spurs is his first love. So he was not in a good place last week!

Genoa. God knows why. Even went on holiday there and watched one of their games.

Used to have a soft spot for Inter as well.
