Didn’t notice a thread...

Anyone watching Serie A this season? Jive have started us off by beating Parma. Napoli vs Fiorentina currently on Premier Sports (Sky 412), Fiorentina lead after a very harsh penalty.

Do we think anyone can topple Juve this year?

Good idea.

To answer your question... No. Juve have strengthened impressively and no one close to them has. If anything Juve have too big a squad and will struggle to keep players happy.

Inter will be a lot better this year with conte but look a little light up front. Some great young midfielders though.

Looking forward to seeing Atalanta this year !

The two experts I trust most on Serie A, Bandini and Horncastle, both say Napoli and Inter will at the very least be closer to Juve this season and make it something of a title race. But Napoli can't start off with a loss tonight.

No idea how VAR wasn't used to spot Mertens' dive. It's so inconsistent how it's used.

I think Napoli could do it this year. Have a feeling.

Lol. No way! After all the hard work getting it back level Napoli go and do that.

Nice own goal.

Get the fuck in. Great result.

Still think Napoli could do it this season, but happy with that start.

Lukaku racially abused by Cagliari fans, the same fans who cause the Moise Kean controversy last season. Calmly wacks home a penalty in front of audible racism.

Good man.

Bit backwards on Sardinia aren't they?
I've been there and it is an absolutely lovely island, but yeah. People there are so nice to you if you're a white tourist but backwards beyond belief to anybody of another skin tone. It really was like going back to the fifties.

Disgusting scenes from the Cagliari fan’s after Lukaku scored the winning penalty. Bloody 2019 and racism still going on in football (and in general)

SSN showed Cagliari having a lot of incidents over the last 10 years. They should have the book thrown at them, but they'll probably only get a small fine.
