In which we do what we do every week, Pinky.

Hi everybody. I’m really not up to writing something clever today, so let’s get straight to the news.

Latest news

Pantaleo Corvino is always looking to snap up young talent, and his latest target is a midfielder who’s been dubbed “the new Pogba.” Here’s the full story.

ACF Women’s, at least, is motoring right along, and just won their first-ever Champions League match. At the Franchi. Yeah, it was pretty damn special.

Don’t expect to see Gil Dias any time soon, as he broke his foot on international duty. Swell.

Cristiano Biraghi received death threats online. About his performance in a football match. From a fantasy football player. What the hell kind of world et cetera?

Purple lights are flashing and sirens are blaring, because Fiorentina actually won a match yesterday! I mean, it was against an absurdly poor Udinese, but still, it’s fun to reread the complete coverage of victories.

Must read

After losing Federico Bernardeschi amidst rather acrimonious circumstances last summer, it’s imperative that Fiorentina don’t do the same with their current star winger named Federico.

Everyone’s talking about xG these days, so maybe you’re wondering what the heck it actually is. We’ve got you covered.

Riccardo Saponara is hurt (duh) and now we’re trying to figure out what the heck his legs are made out of, because they’re hurt way more than regular human legs. Vote here.

If you’re interested in the scintillating world of corporate finances of football teams, you might be interested to know how much money the Viola get from their sponsors.

Comment of the week

We give the Della Valles a lot of grief around here, and rightfully so, but Catalogue is here to remind us that they’ve done some pretty great stuff too.

That’s it for this week, folks. Call your mom. She loves you.
