  1. Thought it might be better to have an Italian football thread rather than just a dedicated Serie A one, as each year the thread gets filled with stuff from Serie B etc anyway, plus I imagine I'll be polluting this one with a lot of Parma/Lega Pro stuff! Anyway, the Serie A fixtures are due out in a couple of weeks with the first round of games kicking off at the end of August. Can't seem to find any confirmation of when the Serie B/Lega Pro fixtures are out, but I'm fairly certain they are released after the Serie A ones, although I could be wrong. Crotone, Cagliari & Pescara are the new sides in Serie A after winning promotion last year - Crotone in the top flight for the first time. Verona, Carpi and Frosinone the teams whose places they've taken. In Serie B, Como, Modena, Livorno & Virtus Lanciano were all relegated to Lega Pro, with Cittadella, SPAL, Pisa & Benevento all coming up from the third tier. Lots happening over the summer as well so far, with the biggest stories probably being Pjanic moving from Roma to Juve (joining Dani Alves whose moved from Barcelona), Paul Pogba looking like he's leaving Juve for a world record fee and Marcelo Bielsa taking over at Lazio...then leaving after 2 days.
  2. Raith fans have a popular thread running where they can discuss all things Raith without the need for various different threads, so with there seemingly being a lot to discuss with us right now, it seems a good idea to make one for ourselves to keep any discussions in a single thread. If you want to discuss the board, management, stadium, transfers, players...or anything else relating to the club, let's try and keep it in here.
  3. Started a similar thread last year and then a lack of interest initially saw me completely forget about it, but I shall try again. With there being various different leagues on the telly these days (outside of the main ones), I figured it would be good to have a thread for all of those, since the bigger leagues all have their own threads. The TV rights are currently as follows: SKY: Netherlands - Eredivisie BT Sport: Portugal - Primeira Liga Switzerland - Super League France - Ligue 1 Brazil - Brasileirao/Paulistao On top of that, betting sites like Bet 365/William Hill etc stream games from various leagues across Europe and I find myself watching the odd game from the Danish & Swedish top-flights, particularly the latter considering their season runs throughout our summer. Premier Sports had the Belgian Jupiler League last season, but don't appear to be showing it this year. Perhaps BT will swoop in on that as well. Anyone else have any interests in leagues outside of the usual suspects?
  4. Italian Football Thread

    Unfortunately he's appeared a few times this season on some of the league matches. Decent match tonight, despite the result.
  5. Italian Football Thread

    Really good first half that. Genoa should be in front.
  6. Italian Football Thread

    Inter did start pretty badly to be fair, dropped 8 points in their opening 4 games, all games which you'd have expected them to win. Could easily have been sitting up alongside Juventus. Their shite start is made all the more annoying given they've been pretty much flawless (results wise at least) since that opening set of games.
  7. River have missed a fair few decent chances here. Boca have looked pretty mince apart from the goal.
  8. Italian Football Thread

    An alright game, that...
  9. Italian Football Thread

    I love Atalanta.
  10. Eleven Sports

    Every game I watched on BT last season I streamed through their website, and it was always 60-90 seconds behind, with Sky Sports through Sky Go (Desktop App + PS4 app) being better, but still a good 30/40 seconds or so, so I was expecting some lag or a delay here as well. Can't say it bothers me at all, tbh. The service seems pretty good so far for £6.
  11. Italian Football Thread

    Great first half between Sassuolo and Inter, with Sassuolo 1-0 up. Inter have been awful, particularly in midfield, but still fancy them to get back in this. Torino v Roma was equally good in the earlier game, peach of a finish from Dzeko to win it. Parma currently 1-0 up on Udinese at HT.
  12. New kits for 18/19

  13. Italian Football Thread

    The teams for Pirlo's testimonial are pretty decent.
  14. Italian Football Thread

    3-2 Inter.
  15. Italian Football Thread

    Inter equalise and Lazio now down to 10 men!
  16. Italian Football Thread

    Terrific first half. Could easily have had another 2 or 3 goals.
  17. Italian Football Thread

    Lazio in front, scenes.
  18. Italian Football Thread

    This has started pretty well.
  19. Italian Football Thread

    Not sure who I'd prefer to go down. Chievo are pretty bland I suppose and I've been tipping Udinese to go down for at least a few years now, so would be nice to finally be right there! Really enjoyed Crotone and SPAL being in the league so ideally they'll survive. Cagliari I've no feelings either way.
  20. Italian Football Thread

    Ah well, f**k Juve. Plenty to play for next week. Lazio v Inter for 4th and some potential scenes at the bottom. Fiorentina can still technically take the last EL spot away from Atalanta, but would need a sizeable goal swing to do so. Had Atalanta beaten Milan tonight actually, Milan would have been playing Fiorentina next week to see who takes that spot. In Serie B on Friday, a win for Parma against Spezia and Frosinone dropping points against Foggia, will see Parma automatically promoted. If Parma fail to win, Frosinone lose and Palermo win, then Palermo will go up automatically.
  21. Italian Football Thread

    Aye, that it's done.
  22. Italian Football Thread

    Inter destroying Udinese at the moment. 3-0 at HT, but they've had about 15 efforts on goal or so. Very similar to their performance against Samp a little while back. Udinese had a great chance at 1-0 which they should have taken though, which would have made things more interesting. More goals to come I think.
  23. Italian Football Thread

    Terrific defending there as well the fucking diddy.
