And a nice paragraph from him here on the end of his playing career:"Now time has come and tapped me on the shoulder, telling me I have to grow up. He said, from tomorrow, you will be an adult. Take off your shorts and boots, from now you are a man and can no longer smell the grass, feel the sun in your face, the adrenaline that consumes you and the satisfaction of celebrating."from:http://www.espnfc.com/as-roma/story/3135457/romas-francesco-totti-on-retirement-im-not-ready-to-say-its-over
http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/41388064.I'm shocked,who would of thought this would happen in italian football.
Was watching the Juventus match earlier, and f**k me, what a game from start to finish. Juventus awarded a pen when it was 1-2 to Lazio (Lucas played well btw!) in the last seconds, but Lazio keeper saved it!!!!
I watched that. It would have been a crime had Juventus (or Italy's premier footballing crime syndicate) had equalised as they totally did not deserve anything from that match. Lazio were excellent, well organised and as you note Lucas was superb. Delighted Dybala missed the penalty!
The Icardi show (check out his 2nd goal guys, it was a world class finish!). Thoroughly enjoyed the Milan derby!! Started to watch more Serie A games now since being recommended Jorginho by a friend, now I am hooked!
The stereotypical Italian football disappeared ages ago, really good to watch these days
A huge game on Saturday. Napoli vs Inter! Very excited for this match.
Won't be 0-0 for sure
How’s Lucas getting on?
Very good, he is their main #6, and with De Vrij at the back, they are difficult to beat, especially with Immobile up top. They are at home vs Cagliari on BT sports 19:45 tonight if you want to watch them, i certainty will!
Maybe,seems the fans are still racist gobshites though.http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/41762423.
I wonder if there is a better deep lying playmaker in world football than Jorginho? I swear, I would literally trade Coutinho for Jorginho at this moment.
Still would ask the question of why he doesn't get more international recognition, he is good but i wouldn't swap him for couts
