Spezia got sanctioned by FIFA, Banned from buying players in the next 4 transfer windows.

The curse strikes again. Just like Sunderland was relegated for fucking us over Alvarez, Spezia now got punished for not playing Agoume enough. Expect a similar fate to befall Sporting soon. That's what happens when you cross Inter.

Sounds like Chievo have also declared bankruptcy. Somewhere @Shaun is smiling.
Good. They shouldn't have been in serie a for as long as they were. I was so happy when they got relegated.

Totally normal stuff in Italy :palm:
"The Albania international sang ‘Bella Ciao’, which was adopted as an anthem of the anti-fascist resistance by the Italian partisans between 1943 and 1945, but the choice for his initiation song left many Lazio fans unhappy"
"According to Calciomercato.com, a group of Lazio ultras arrived at a restaurant last night, but the team had already left, so they met the player outside the team’s hotel along with Lazio sporting director Igli Tare and a group of police officers."

Irriducibili disbanded?

Anyway, RE the whole “green jersey ban”, I thought I read somewhere it doesn’t apply to existing home jerseys? So Sassuolo would be fine. I can’t even think of another Italian team which has green as a primary club color.

Green away jerseys, like Lazio’s horrendous fluorescent green shirt from last season, or Bologna’s dark green, would apparently be banned.

Whatever. Fucking stupid rule to begin with. Shows the kind of useless bullshit the FIGC or Lega Calcio is wasting their time on instead of real issues like stadiums, helping clubs with COVID financing or better broadcasting deals.

They should also ban that bloody sponsor Overlay on Adboards, the kits disappearing when the players near the adboards because it's got blended with that overlay.
It happens frequently last season when playing at Meazza. Not sure many people notice this.

I meant more as a main color, Venezia haven't had a green-main jersey since like 2002, but yes, definitely Venezia. Trapani too.

Overall, won't affect too many clubs historical kits thankfully, but still a needless intrusion nonetheless.

You weren't a fan of players suddenly becoming headless whenever they took throw ins?

Juventino pezzo di merda Calvarese has resigned from reffing. Good riddance
