Antonio Conte attacks!!!

Is the audience envious of me?

The same old story, someone sentenced you and minutes later you are already accusing him of being “a supporter [of another team]”. For a man who has paid his lawyers lots of money (I guess) and who has its defence based on the concept of envy, well what else could you expect?

I mean you need to pay someone to accuse someone other to be envious of you? Come on…that’s not a defence that’s a fight between children.

The fact that someone could sentence you to a penalty and even be above the board is something unheard of in Italy, let’s just think that for this appeal Conte hired a MP of the Italian Parliament as his lawyer.

We are the country where Valentino Rossi (the famous rider) was allowed to broadcast a press release in the main Italian news program without asking to him anything because he was accused of not paying taxes (fact that was the truth in fact he paid a lot of money to avoid to go to court). Normal people use Youtube, he used our public television. In this context you can imagine how a ridiculous defence from the present Juventus’ coach could be believed by someone, he first said he wasn’t involved in this scandal, then he tried to negotiate his penalty, in my opinion a clue of his guilty, because a man extremely rich doesn’t risk anything by being disqualified for even three seasons, there are people who prefer to watch themselves in the mirror and be proud of themselves and other that negotiate even if they can afford to don’t do it. Anyway he then try to defend himself by accusing Carobbio of envy and of holding a grudge against him because there was an argument between their wives, everyone who has ever seen a “Law & Order” episode can affirm that this is not a defence this is a joke. Then when everything is (nearly) over he attacks the judges because he disagrees with them, that’s not exactly a surprise since he was graced by the accuse that doesn’t accuse him of a more serious offence (that’s what one of the judges said), on what basis he accuses the justice? He said that he has never seen something like that happen in a court, I deeply doubt that Conte has assisted to so many trials to affirm something like that, but most important he said that perhaps the judge was a supporter [of another club]…

That’s Italy, arguments like these can even convince someone of the injustice he suffered, so with very no surprise we have got another martyr…

Napoli-Juventus, a touch of class in Beijing

Welcome back Italian football!

Hello everybody, it’s been a while since I last wrote something, but you know the summer…

Anyway if you lacked Italian football during this months you should be now happy for the recent Italian “Supercoppa” which Juventus won on extra time in Beijing yesterday (4-2).

As usual it couldn’t go smooth, so in June both team fought because the first one didn’t want to play so far, while the second one wanted to open new markets and increase the prestige of Napoli abroad. When they eventually got there first Napoli tried to spy Juventus’ training, then Antonio Conte was disqualified for the next ten months because of the match fixing scandal, and in the edn when they went on the pitch they managed to get 3 red cards and then they didn’t go to the award ceremony…
