Any fans of italian football on here, i find myself watching a lot of it on ESPN.

Juventus have just spent 40million turning loan players into permant moves.

Looks like they are buying Lichtsteiner from Lazio also.

So who do you boys support or favour, i have a few teams i like to keep an eye on.

I have always had a soft spot for lazio as started getting into italian footy when it was on channel 4, gazzetta on the saturday mornign what a great show. At around that time Lazio were making waves wiht Sven, Veiri and Veron.

I remember Juventus in 90's for there champions league exploits and was happy when the bald eagle lombardo joined crystal palace haha.

And out of the Milan sides its AC all the way for me, though when ibrahimovic was adding to his highlight reels wiht that back heel against bologna amongst others you couldnt help but be in awe.

I Like watching Palermo with players like Pastore, Migliaccio, Bovo and Miccoli. Delio Rossi also knows how to pick up quality players on the cheap like Josip Ilicic and Abel Hernandez.

I used to watch when it was on Channel 4 too, and I sorely miss both that show and the American Football round up that came after!

I still watch Serie A and my favoured teams in no particular order are Napoli, Fiorentina and probably Juventus.

I tend to find the patient passing and technical skill more engaging in Serie A than in Spain, and it's a nice alternative to the PL too.

Serie A is one of the only places you can still see teams play 3 at the back and such tactical variation unlike the EPL or La Liga when its always a variation on 4-3-3, 4-2-3-1 or 4-4-2

I also used to love that show on channel 4. Big Inter fan, with Ronaldo being my favourite player back then so i stuck with them. I like how Lazio are making a bit of a comeback.

The team I follow in Serie A is Juventus, not watched much Italian football since it was on channel 5 a few years a go, now just keep an eye on transfers and the league table.

I find it difficult to take Italian football seriously theses days. It's manly due to the dishonestly of it all.

It's well known in betting circles that come the end of the season certain teams playing against each other agree to fixed draws. The Sampdoria-Chievo match being a prime example. The game was taken off all of the major bookmakers markets after massive stakes being placed on the draw pre-match. On Betfair the draw traded at 2/1 ON before kick off and the game ended 0-0. Coincidence?

It's a shame because in it's day Serie A was THE best league in the world by a mile.

I like Roma in Serie A. For some reason whenever I play as an Italian team on FIFA or Pro Evo I choose Roma.
