My Serie A Heroes: Hidetoshi Nakata

Back in 1998, at the the World Cup in France I still have vivid memories of the Michael Owen goal against Argentina, the Beckham sending off, the Roberto Baggio penalty against Chile, the Blanco bunny hop & the ghost Ronaldo in the final. One player who really caught my eye was Hidetoshi Nakata, a Japanese […]

My Team & I: AC Milan

By Michelangelo Gamberini Twitter: @mkidj WHY AC MILAN To answer this question, I would have to tell you about my family and my childhood. My mother’s sister lives in Varese, a town not far from Milan. Her son and my older cousin was to blame for making me a Milanista – according to my uncle […]

My Team & I: Scunthorpe Utd

  By Nicola Kilmore Twitter: @footychick25   Why Scunthorpe? Well, believe it or not for quite possibly one of the most unfashionable teams in England, I actually started out as something of a glory supporter. Glory? Scunthorpe? Yes you heard right, it wasn’t until I started secondary school that I even begun to take a […]

Argentina – Do We Care?

So in this international break Argentina are playing the US & Costa Rica but really who knew? The fact is unlike their rivals Brazil not a lot of football fans seem to care about Argentina outside World Cup years. Diego Maradona as coach seemed to create interest again but as soon as the World Cup […]

My Team & I: Leicester City

By David Bevan Twitter: @the72football Website: Why Leicester? My Dad took me along to Filbert Street when I was 5.

My Team & I: Omiya Ardija

By Michael Hudson Twitter: @DolphinHotel Website: Why Omiya Ardija? As a Newcastle fan, I’m duty bound to root for wildly unsuccessful club sides wherever they can be found. When I moved to Japan my closest teams were the country’s most successful one, Kashima Antlers, the country’s most popular one, Urawa Reds, or Omiya Ardija, a […]

Serie A Hereos – Angelo Peruzzi

Well there have been a few fine keepers during my time watching Serie A including Walter Zenga, Gianluca Pagliuca, Francesco Toldo & the underrated Sebastiano Rossi. Today we have Gianluigi Buffon arguably the worlds best. But for me a keeper that stood out was Former Juventus & Lazio goalie Angelo Peruzzi. I mainly remember Peruzzi […]

I’m a firm believer that you support your local team or support a team that you have some sort of relation to; one […]
