I'm sure there must be a closet catholic gay on the French team, Calderoli should be more inclusive

Ad hoc, it's true about Grosso. But you can take comfort from the likliehood that Palermo will be playing Champions League football, plus you got Guidolin back.

Calderoli is an idiot even by Italian political standards. He was the one who set off riots that killed people in Libya by proudly displaying a t-shirt with the Danish Mohammed cartoons on television. He also described the new election law as an "effing mess" notwithstanding the fact that he was listed as its primary draftsman. He is so bad that Berlusconi actually formally disowned his actions.

Cannon, Toni also had a half chance from a play involving Totti and Pirlo on the edge of the box that was sent for a corner by Thuram's sliding tackle (can I please say again that Lilian really should end his career at Barca?).

Bombanero, wrong Eurofly. Try this.

alderoli, ex-minister of the Lega, has apparently said that Italy deserved to win because France had sold its identity by fielding "negroes, Muslims and Communists."

Probably the biggest reason I'm at peace with Italia winning is the fact that Puma is the shirt sponsors, and Puma has made a huge effort at sponsoring and promoting African football. As far as "Negroes, Muslims, and Communists;" Puma - the company sponsoring Italy - has sponsored 5 African teams, 2 of which are mostly Muslim, and one of which (Angola) was Marxist and won their Civil War with the help of Cuba and Soviet Union against the CIA and Apartheid-era South Africa.

Puma plays a big part in sponsoring African football because all the big European and South American teams are taken by Nike and adidas. It's like saying they're promoting Swiss football, when they were just the biggest team they could get.

Puma started a charity called United for Africa, and put out an album called Africa Plays On... which features various artists from around sub-Saharan Africa. So I give them respect for that.

When I saw Italy-Ghana, I thought Grosso was crap. Little did we know that he would seal the semi and final for the Azzurri.

And the round of 16.

I'd never heard of him before (which probably says more about me), but he had quite a tournament.

Grosso was one of the Palermo defenders that certain people on here dismissed as being weak nobodies who guaranteed certain elimination for the Azzurri when Lippi named his squad.

He certainly raised the level of his game in the knockout stages, but he was a big part of Palermo's promotion and subsequent qualification for Europe, had been a regular member of Lippi's teams for some time and was a sure thing to move to a "big" club before the tournament started. Inter saved themselves several million euro by signing him then, which Moratti will no doubt blow on Recoba or another striker.

Well, if you want to win the world cup it certainly helps to have a squad that hasn't played a competitive match in 6 months.

Ah yes, how long have we had TG and AIATL pronouncing how weak and shit Andrea Pirlo is. That pass for Grosso in the semi-finals had more class than all of the Premiership super athletic drones they hold so dear managed in the entire tournament combined.

Bombanero, be fair, Juventus did also have to play Arsenal twice last season.
