Good morning my friends.   I am so happy today awaiting for the World Cup 3rd place game between Brazil vs Netherlands.  How are you?  Are you planning to watch the game. I am!  Come on, I totally agree with the headlines that although Brazil is playing for the 3rd place, the fans  still don’t forgive them.  And here, my friends, I include myself because I expected way more from Brazil who disappointed big time never showing a consistent and convincing game losing the semifinal against Germany with a mega goleada 7-1.

Cheer up guys!   Italy team might not be in the World Cup final, but hello, hello, hello,…. Italian born referee Nicola Rizzoli has been assigned to direct the final match Argentina – Germany!!! wohoooo… plus, remember there are 7 Italian Serie A players with Argentina and 2 with Germany… so “an Italian” presence is at the final.

Ok, guys, the headline upsetting me big time is that of AC Milan forward Mario Balotelli !!!!  What is this guy thinking????? Come on, it’s about time that Balotelli start to grow up and show common sense… What is this photo thing pointing with a gun  and the message to the haters???? Precisely, these are the types of situation causing discomfort among fans and questioning more for his antics than his “actual football.”

Special Investigation by Gazzetta

  • Too many foreigners (and very poor)
  • In Serie A at least 60 are unnecessary
  • 54% of our championship don’t speak Italian.
  • There are restrictions, oftentimes, loopholes are used to exploit them.
  • Closing to non-EU members wouldn’t help; an example is Germany.
