FOARP V. Italy
That's right, the FOARP has now officially declared war on the nation of Italy. For years they have been oppressing me with their beautiful Lollobrigida, their delicious pizza and their boring 0-0 draws, now Antonio Napoli has pushed me too far!
Well, not actually, but for the record:
1) I can't think of any war that Italy has won since Roman times without outside help, if you know better, tell me.
2) Yes, the Italian team does play incredibly overly defensive football in my view, that makes for boring football.
3) The influence that the Mafia has over Italian politics may be exaggerated, but is not imaginary.
