It's actually usually pretty entertaining these days - that's a pretty freak set of results in recent times.

Attendances are shocking in Serie A, but Juventus have made a big step forward in terms of owning their own brand new stadium which is built to a modern standard that good for spectating.

Lots of problems in Italian football, but they do seem to be acknowledging them finally and looking to put things right.  It's still an entertaining league, and looks wide open this season too.

Good article, although using facts and analysis to support an argument isn't going to sit well with the likes of Custis and his ilk!

Italian football is atrocious these days.

The standard is appauling. All you need to do is look at their performances in the Uefa cup and Champions league.

Cant be long before Portugal are given an additional spot in the CL and the Italians have one taken from them.

I'm sure that C4 started to show it after Gazza went to Lazio? The interest in this country went through the roof when he went there.

Italian football is at it's lowest standard for years, but it's still probably 4th best at present and is set to improve over the coming few years I reckon.

Yes Gash, it was mainly down to Gazza but it was also down to the fact that it was the best league in the world by a mile at that point in time.  Used to love watching it on C4 on Sunday afternoon, and of course you had Gazetta on Saturday morning with James Richardson.  Used to be on after Trans World Sport, another program that was amazing but couldn't survive on terrestrial in the days of Sky Sports.
