Pordenone could be promoted today, potentially setting up a Friuli derby in Serie B next season with Udinese.

that'd be cool - got an idea that'd be their first competitive meeting; Udinese have played the other main Friulian sides already - Monfalcone,  Triestina, Pro Gorizia, but not Pordenone

A 0-0 draw for Messina away to Roccella yesterday, leaves us still 4 points  above the dreaded relegation playoff zone.

Two games to play in Serie D Group I, a week on Sunday Messina are at home to Sancataldese, who are the team 4 points behind us.

At least a point, or it's squeaky arse time going into the last game.

Forza Messina

I just noticed that former Celtic superstar, Amido Balde, played for Messina this season. :lol:

Almost as odd as Djibril Cisse 'playing' for a dodgy reincarnation of Vicenza.

I'm well aware. I follow a team who play in Prima Categoria (seventh level of Italian football) despite being in the professional leagues less than ten years ago.

I also quite like Napoli but that's not as interesting.

errrr - extended match highlights  :thumsup2

go to the 'calendario' pages on that tuttocampo site, and there are links to all the video clips of various matches: - the first Messina derby of the season looks like a right bundle of laughs !

I use Tuttocampo to follow Celano games. It's really unreliable though. Has a habit of crashing or sticking up the wrong live scores.

Never like seeing Napoli lose, but it's all for the greater good of helping Atalanta make the CL. What a team.

Is there an English version?

the closest i've come across (leave it) is https://uk.soccerway.com - but that's nowhere near as good - doesn't go below the regional leagues (level eight on the pyramid, so no county league coverage for instance) and compared to tuttocampo, the club details are very sketchy - no badges, no ground pics or video for may of the lower leagues - but then again they do cover leagues the world over rather than exclusively England; it's ok for tables, results and fixtures, though; gap in the market IMO...

you can bet your arse that if you tried to do a comprehensive UK version though, you'd be constantly fighting witless copyright issues for using the fixtures, sponsor's names for the leagues, images of badges, not using up to date sponsored stadium names - all that sort of shit; none of the tiny-minded little fucks would be able to take the wider view that you were popularising the game and making it more accessible, to everyone's benefit - specifically the mug punters - i'm guessing that's why it's never proved workable...

I think they are great to watch. Always rebuilding and the gems they find.

Lazio fans are continuing to chant racist abuse towards Tiemoue Bakayoko outside the gates of San Siro. Milan v Lazio this evening

There was also this gem earlier (translates as honour to Benito Mussolini). The Pizalle Loretto is where il Duce's corpse (along with other fascists) was hung & put on display for the public to vent their rage.

I'm heading to Rome at the end of May and looking to get tickets to Roma-Parma while there.

I'm assuming it'll be easy enough to get tickets, but just wondering if anyone has been to the Olimpico before and what the best way to go about getting them is (seems you can do it online, although I'm not sure if this is just a case of using a phone, having to print them, or pick them up from somewhere). Also what the options are for getting to the stadium, as it looks pretty far out.

Tram from piazza del popolo will take you just across the river from the ground. Follow the crowds. Number 30 something maybe but Google will confirm.

Best buying tickets in advance online. Some wee shops sell them but for convenience, you can go online. Roma sell them direct on their website now
