    I think he's referencing the fact that the Inter players in said game were seemingly replaced by look-a-like imposters who had clearly never touched a football before, which, to be fair, also seemed a weird decision to me at the time.

    Former referee Claudio Gavillucci has revealed he was ‘dismissed by text message’ and claims his colleagues ‘aren’t guaranteed by a transparent system’.

    Gavilucci, who has overseen 50 matches in Serie A and an additional 74 in the second tier of Italian football, hits out at the Italian Referees’ Association (AIA) in his new book called: ‘The Man in Black. The truth of an uncomfortable referee’.

    “I wrote my book because at 38 I was dismissed by AIA in a text message,” he told Radio Kiss Kiss. “I decided to get to the bottom of the case, to understand if the technical reasons behind this decision existed.

    “I discovered many important things, among which there were grounds for discrimination. I wrote it for the sake of my job and for the love I have for football.

    “I found the unwillingness to open up and necessity to hide something. I put my hand over the flame for my colleagues, who unfortunately aren’t guaranteed by a transparent system and it doesn’t work as it should.

    “The honest man is the one who lives in a context of honesty.”

    So the protocol will be if one player tests positive, the whole squad needs to quarantine for 14 days.

    That's effectively a season ender if one player out of all Serie A players, tests positive.

    Lets take a moment to laugh at our cousins

    Milan lose value, Inter surge
    By Football Italia staff

    The annual KPMG report showed that Milan are the only club in Europe’s top 32 to have lost value over the last five years, whereas Inter increased by 146 per cent.

    During that period, the Rossoneri went from Silvio Berlusconi to Yonghong Li and then Elliott Management, who repossessed the club after the Chinese businessman defaulted on loan repayments.

    The study by accounting organisation KPMG found that Milan are the only club in Europe’s top 32 to not only have failed to grow during the last five years, but even lost value.

    Their Football Club Valuation fell by three per cent, from €545m to €526m.

    On the other hand, within the same city, Inter increased their value by 146 per cent, giving them the biggest improvement after Lyon (193 per cent) and Tottenham Hotspur (158 per cent).

    It took the Nerazzurri’s value to €983m, almost double that of their San Siro rivals.

    “The two Milanese clubs took completely different paths,” KPMG Global Head of Sports Andrea Sartori told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

    “Elliott Management are a private equity fund with very different objectives to Suning, who are strategic investors benefiting from investment in Inter by using the brand to help sell their products. It’s no coincidence that Inter have notably increased their commercial revenue.

    “As for Milan, it’s extraordinary that in the last five years they have accumulated losses of €442m equivalent to the profit made by Tottenham (€439m) in the same period.

    “Milan are paying for a lack of planning, the failure of the Yonghong Li purchase which did more damage than anything else. At this point, it’s difficult to see any other way out for the Rossoneri than to sell the club.”

    Serie A will officially resume June the 20th.

    It still isn't clear when the teams who have a game in hand (us among them) will play it.

    As for Coppa Italia, it still isn't official but the clubs have decided to play the semifinals 13th and 14th of June, the final the 17th.
    "As usual in Italy some decisions are made without sense and logic. The dark side of the football that we tried to clean up returns to light".

    Spadafora : "FIGC assured me that there is a plan B, a format with play-offs and play-outs, and a plan C, with the crystallization of the rankings at the time of any suspension. The choices on plan B and plan C are not up to me, but it will be the FIGC autonomously to study the alternative solutions in the Federal Council of June 4, "

    Don't get too excited with Serie A returning. Playoffs would suck .

    Playoffs is a huge risk for Inter. They've talked about top 6 teams taking part in playoffs with top2 having bye to semifinals. One/two-legged matchup against Napoli for Inter and that determines if we're in CL next season or not? Absolutely catastrophic and really against any fairness when looking at the standings. We are FIFTEEN points ahead of them with a game in hand, so possibly 18 points ahead. 1-2 game matchup cannot determine CL spot.

    And generally, how fair is it to Juve or Lazio or anyone that Napoli, being well over 20 points behind the top or Roma being almost 20 points the top behind have a chance for the Scudetto at all?

    Agreed. Even if I'm biased for us, I wouldn't want us to have a chance for Scudetto through a straight playoff. If there is a playoff they would have to take into account current number of points - I am against playoffs.in general though.

    ridiciolous, hopefully this is only bullshit talking from the media. This people need to stop complaining about everything and accept the fact that there is not much time to end this season. They are basically refuse to work, like they don't earn already a lot of money, what the fuck man... it's like theyre searching a excuse to not restart, everytime.
    Nel bene e nel male, forza Internazionale!!
