I feel like this deserves a thread, because a) it has been discussed a ton lately around here, and b) it is very important to us as Inter fans, and therefore shouldn't only be discussed in the 2012 Serie A thread.
Anyway, you all know what the score is. Calcio is in the middle of a huge decline, and lacks foreign talent, marketability, stadiums, and most importantly, money. No rich oil entrepreneur will invest in Italian clubs for many reasons, including the economic crisis the country is facing, the amount of hurdles that must be cleared to build a stadium, etc. Our 3rd UCL spot was taken (mainly because of the Europa league performances of our clubs ) and just all in all, its been a garbage past few years for football in Italy.
The question I'm posing is basically, how will this be fixed? What are your suggestions towards starting the renaissance?
I think clearly the German model is one we need to look at, however how attainable that may be remains to be seen.
