    Hello Everyone.

    Hello everyone.

    I'm Gavin from Scotland, and I've been an Interista since about 1993. I first started watching calcio when Channel 4 in the UK began showing it. I still had good memories of Italia '90 at that time, and my favourite players of that tournament were Schillaci and a few of the Germans - so I naturally adopted Inter as my team. The beautiful kit helped me choose too, there's not another compares to it. That was around 17 years ago and my support hasn't waivered since, despite the long dark times.

    During those sad times I admired the way some players stood out from the crowd, playing for the jersey despite the team maybe lacking quality compared to others - Bergomi, Berti, a young Zanetti, Ganz and one or two others standing out. Nowadays a few can still claim to be black and blue through and through - Samuel, Matrix and Cambiasso continue the line.

    I've visited Italy a number of times - Rome, Florence, Pisa, Lucca - but only been to Milan once. There wasn't a match getting played, but I toured the stadium and museum. It was fantastic, in the museum, to see the training top worn by Big HH in the 60's, and some other memorabilia from that time. I sat in the managers chair (mancini at the time) in his office next to the changing room and also Gattusos seat in their changing room. I chose his just because he played for my '2nd' team Rangers, here in Scotland.

    That'll do for now - I just wanted to tell a little of my relationship with the Nerazzurri over the years until now. I hope you're all in good spirits after last nights fantastic match.

    Forza Inter, Gav.

    Bergomi, Berti,



    Mille grazie to both of you.

    KAvdic - just before posting I had watched an episode of Wallander! Is that a well received programme in Sweden or is it cliched and stereo-typical? It was the English version with Kenneth Brannagh.

    I wish I had registered ages ago. The forum came up when I searched for something so long ago and I kept meaning to have a better look here.

    How do you watch the games mate?

    I watch the afternoon ones on streams, but I sometimes go into the city to watch evening ones because my bandwidth isn't that good when the network is busy

    Europa next to Queen St station - they show all the big games, they must have about 8 screens and they can show 2 or 3 games at once

    EDIT: your nonna? You're from Italy or 2nd generation or....?

    A lot of my mates went to Europa in 06 when Italy played France in the final - but I went to Bar Budda in sauchiehall street for that game - then down to George square after it.

    My mum and dad are Italian but moved over to Scotland and I was born here. Go back to Italy most years though!

    Hehe, I never watch any Swedish shows, so I wouldn't know.
