Although the English League One 2016/17 financial results are a season out-of-date, they are the most recent published, so people might still be interested in the comparisons. Note that not all figures are available, as many clubs only publish abbreviated accounts. Some thoughts follow.

not bad to be fair - decent article about new Hellas manager Fabio Grosso and his defining role in the 2006 World Cup; just about to read the piece about the 1985 scudetto, but so far it seems to be decently written, informative stuff - no facile preconceptions or bias on show....

One of the most interesting articles I have read recently, about Fabio Quagliarella being stalked.  Terrifying stuff. 

Great to see that earlier this season, at age 36, he scored in 11 consecutive Serie A games and is playing as well as he ever has...

They told that story on an episode of the Golazo podcast. Absolutely bonkers.

Shame it ruined his time at Napoli, but pleased for the big man as he looks like finishing top scorer this season.
