Italian meltdown

Whoa, how many stories can possibly surface at once about Italian football in one week? Italian football is in melting faster than a double cheese pizza in a too-hot oven. Juventus, Inter Milan, the Italian FA, referees, you name it. Topics? How about match fixing, threats, influence peddling, betting, coercion and blackmail, just look at the barrage of stories:

Juventus: Italy warms up for World Cup - with rampant soccer scandal

Italian police search Italian FA's offices

Italian ref dropped in wake of Serie A scandal

Turin magistrates question Buffon

Wiretap unveils Juventus chief Moggi's Cannavaro, Ibrahimovic push (I even read Cannavaro was instructed to play badly to get a transfer)

it's wrong to generalise like this my friend, in fact Juve is the big offender here, and others (Milan, Fiorentina & Lazio) have also been involved to a lesser degree in match fixing
but Inter Milan no, never, there's plenty of hidstorical evidence to prove they (we) have only been at the receiving end of this dirt

hell yes...The 4 teams being investigated are Juve, Milan, Lazio and Fiorentina - where Delle Valle has admitted to an 'invisible force' in Italian football that they were guided by...

Of the big clubs, only Inter are standing clean as a whistle while everyone else around them is covered in shit...and any inter fan can recount incidents where we were robbed even before the scandal came out....

Last thing I want to say is about silvio B-for-bullshit, who came out and said they should get the titles awarded juve...as if they were not deeply embroiled in the shit like the rest of the lying cheating scumbags...

I'm afraid we haven't seen anything yet, this is just the tip of the tip of the iceberg and many more heads are going to roll down the slope... I built a lens-page on squidoo with daily updates on the scandal, background info, rss feeds etc., all in English. It's here:
