The winter of our injury events may not yet be over, but along with a high place in the Serie A table, allow the ray of sunshine that is VIOLAPOD through the curtains of your midwinter depression. Giancarlo and I tackle injuries, formations, form, the goalkeeper (... as always), stadium plans, coming fixtures, and the curse of being a Fiorentina fan in a typically blockbuster-length podcast. No clanking pipes this time, but I do bump the desk a couple times, for you fans of incidental podcast noise. So pour yourself a grappa or a scotch (maybe a hot toddy?), wrap that purple scarf tightly around your neck, and enjoy a hard-earned break from the drudgeries of non-Fiorentina existence.
"The two enemies of human happiness are pain and boredom. Fiorentina only cures the latter." -- Arthur Schopenhauer
