    Those final 15 minutes was some of the most entertaining football of the entire season

    Take it from me - I just about wanted to kill myself during all of that. Inter has that remarkable ability to qualify for the Champions League and leave their fans pissed off afterwards.

    IMO, Inter easily have the talent to be at worst the 3rd best team in Italy, but they do their best to play at their lowest potential.

    How they only got 3 more points than my tragic-ass club is beyond me. Even just having Handanovic instead of Olsen should've made the gap much wider than it ended up being.

    Hellas and Cittadela at half in a spirited affair. 1-0 Hellas.

    Cittadella down to 9 men and tied. Hellas in pole position to go back up.

    Hooray for Hellas! I've had a soft spot for them since I visited Verona in 2013, when they were in Serie B.

    What's wrong with him? I watched his press conference, didn't seem too nutty to me.

    Jesus, I knew it was bad. Berlusconi really did a number on Milan in his final years, and then to make it worse, he sold the team to arguably the biggest fraud in the history of professional sports, Li Yonghong .

    Li then spent 200m he didn't really have in a single summer and completely went against all the rules of FFP and logic. It's no wonder UEFA helped boot this guy out.

    To say Elliot Management have a mess to clean up would be the understatement of the century.

    Good luck, your margin for error is so damn slim when it comes to player acquisition. Be smart and go with youth, please.

    The guy has been trying to wage war on MLS ever since he bought the Cosmos.

    Oh pfff , is that it?

    He'd be the most normal owner in Italy if that's the case.

    Haha jokes aside, from everything I've read and the press conference I watched, I'm actually allowing myself to believe this is a good thing for Fiorentina.

    Talk is cheap, but it'd be pretty difficult to be worse than the Della Valle, imo.

    He can't be any worse than Zamparini.

    ESPNFC did a Q&A with Commisso

    https://www.espn.com/soccer/blog/ma...sting-in-serie-a-and-his-fight-with-us-soccer

    I too watched his introductory press conference and it was a bit comical when he talked about his youth on vacation in Italy and then when somebody asked him about his Juve fandom, it was something out of Goodfellas :D Though his story about watching the World Cup on a big screen inside Madison Square Garden in the 70s hit home because that's exactly what my dad did in the 70s as well and when we cleaned out the attic this winter we found 1974 World Cup program stubs (it was like going to the movies)

    Q: It's also going to take time because Financial Fair Play rules mean you have to grow organically. You can't just blow hundreds of millions on new players.

    A:
    Yeah and that's one thing I find wrong... It's a vicious circle. You can't invest unless you generate more money, and you can't generate more money unless you buy better players. But you can't buy better players unless you invest. I hope UEFA finds a way to help people who want to put in money.

    Ain't that the truth, unless you're a club owned by a country of course.
