bastards. That's the unacceptable face of football, right there.
(Actually, I confess a small and wholly unanticipated softspot for Big Marco, based on his azzurri exploits. You can't hate a man who put a hat on the world cup).
still they clearly deserve it. With 5 games to go, 84 points andwhat's currently a 16 point gap, played 33 won 26 drawn 6 lost 1 (yay) you can't argue with that. Scored 68 conceded 29. Championship form in any league, and their scudetto - their 15th in all, and the first won on the field of play in 18 years. I hope they enjoy it. (I think they are doing). Piazza del Duomo:in another year, with Milan at normal strength and Juve up, who knows what would have happened. We've had a great season by any standards, retain the lowest goals against score in the league (26) and can't complain about our second place at all. This Inter is hardly Herrera's but it's still an impressive side.
Only 5 giornate to go... and it's a non-international football summer. Already I have the 'oh god no football what now' feeling that afflicts the summers of odd-numbered years. Still we have the derby next weekend, time to start feeling nervous...
