On the thread's general topic though, early to mid 90's Italian football on 4 was quality.
We used to go round my grandma's for Sunday lunch the after it all the grown-ups would fall asleep so the tele would be left on C4.
That was the only foreign footy on tv here so I think a generation (well 5-10 years worth!) of people grew up with Italian based players as their "exotic" heroes.
Gazzetta on Saturday morning was quality as well.
I always used to think that James Richarson had the best job in the world. To be fair, even having grown up, I'd be hard pushed to think of a better one now.
The everlasting memory i've got of Gazetta is Richardson sat outside some cafe underneath the San Siro, bright blue sky, cappacino and continental breaki on the table, lovely and warm whilst perusing Gazetto Della Sport in between ogling stunning looking women.
Yeah, like you say, he really did have it good for a while.
And the generation you speak of were when the only interet I had in life was football.
Lentini, Baggio, Maldini, Weah etc. Great times.
I always remember Lentini being the worlds most expensive transfer in the world for 13.5m at the time and then fucking his leg up after a month after and barely played again.
