There’s a lot of stuff we could talk about here with Fiorentina. Bad results, boring football, a dearth of goals, you name it. But that’s not what we’re here for right now. That’s not what’s important. Because we’re facing a major danger right now that no one’s talking about. But here at Viola Nation, we’re not afraid to look directly at the terrifying truth.

That’s why this week’s BGW will be dedicated to fighting this secret menace. And that menace is that there aren’t enough cat gifs on this blog. So, without further ado, here you go.

Okay, I feel like that’s probably abated the crisis. Rest easy, citizens. And remember, you can always count on us for hard-nosed, hard-hitting journalism.

Latest news

Fiorentina are effectively assured of topping Group J after their win over Slovan Liberec.

Fiorentina Women’s are currently leading Serie A and are blowing away their opposition, which is really exciting.

The men’s side isn’t as impressive, as a rather ragged draw against Sampdoria showed us. Check out all phases of our coverage if you want to.

When you hear that a former Fiorentina player scored a freaking marvelous goal for Celta Vigo this weekend, you assume it’s Giuseppe Rossi and not Facundo Roncaglia. But you assume wrong. Seriously, watch it and be amazed.

Must read

Paulo Sousa talked about being a realist rather than a dreamer and ruffled some feathers, but it gave us a chance to discuss what that actually means for Fiorentina.

Here are the transfer rumors we picked up last week.

Comment of the week

First, some backstory: I made a typo on something and Vraji86 caught it (thanks, duder). I attributed it to my using my girlfriend’s computer, which has a much smaller keyboard than mine. Then slakas delivered the coup de grace.

That’s it for this week, folks. Get ready for the international break. And, if you’re a US citizen and haven’t voted yet, please do that.
