Yeah, I like the logic "Give Asia more berths because they have more people" despite, you know, not caring about, and sucking at, the sport nearly as much as any other confederation (not counting the joke OFC).

Our Dear Friend's work monitoring irregular gas activity was a great service to Oklahoma and our nation. We can only hope he can get back in the gas industry.

Fabio Borini refuses his transfer to Sunderland from Liverpool! Hope he can return to Italy.

I didn't know pulling a Jon Tester was a stereotypical dago mobster look.

Shocked Really no idea what happened. I can't help but wonder if Napolitano had some influence in this.


The ban on serving in elected office is now lifted.

No. The sentence under which he is banned from holding office for 6 years had nothing to do with this case.

Just reporting what I saw from several media sources (none of which were Il Giornale Wink ). 

Foreign media are prone to getting things wrong (especially when the picture is THAT complicated).

So I was also told that the "two year ban" (I assume the individual meant six year) wasn't struck down but the lifetime ban was. That isn't true either?

Berlusconi has been acquitted in the Ruby the Heart Stealer/underage sex case. The ban on serving in elected office is now lifted.

I know people like to hate on the FIFA rankings, but overall they look pretty sensible.

Yeah, 14 and 15 are in the proper order.

Oh no! Time for the handwringing to be notched up a level to correct this!



For the record, it just looks like a really lame routine/chant. What annoying champions...

Massimiliano Allegri is the new coach of Juventus. Bwahahahaha.

And yes, they're probably selling Vidal. This is horrible news for Pirlo, too. Allegri is the reason he left Milan, saying he was past his prime...

Huge news out of Italy: Antonio Conte resigns as Juve manager. Scudetto race is between Napoli and Roma. Smiley

Probably going to take over as the Italian national coach now though. Sad

The World Cup is over and the Euro qualifying thread is already started. Might as well open the club thread since training has begun.

Use this thread to discuss all things (rumors, transfers, results, injuries, suspensions, etc.) related to the Beautiful Game at the club level.

The Premier League kicks off on August 16th. Serie A starts on August 31st. CL Playoff round begins on August 19th.

Hey! I'm supposed to start these! Wink It helps me cope with another tournament ending/Italy not winning it all. Tongue

Italy will be in for a challenge for first place in the group since we always fail to beat Croatia. Norway and/or Bulgaria could make it interesting for third.

This has been good. Appropriate ending to a great tournament.

So how about Germany being the favorite in this one? Hahaha.

Germany are a total mess.

Deutschland Über Alles! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Don't ever root for Italy again.

Italy and Germany are pretty good friends AFAIK. Sure there's a rivalry, but it's not a nasty one - and besides, Italy always wins, so we have no reason to hold a grudge. Tongue

Italians do not root for Germany. Like ever.

Not sure if this stat has been thrown out there: Germany have made the Final of a major tournament every six years since 1990.

'90 - win
'96 - win
'02 - loss
'08 - loss
'14 - ?

...that's because the Germans play in the much better Bundesliga.

...ok? The point was Rizzoli will be way more acquainted with Argentina's players. Where the Germans play (which I obviously knew) has nothing to do with the point.
