Well, this one isn’t perfectly timed. Your favorite Viola podcast idiots recorded this on the Sunday before a certain afternoon at the Luigi Ferraris that devastated Fiorentina’s European aspirations in the most brutal way possible, so our emotional and psychological states have, hm, deteriorated since then. On the other hand, maybe some bubbly optimism will help push some of those clouds away, even though our first topic is (sigh) Fiorentina’s chances of qualifying for Europe and whether that would determine the overall success of this season.
We also discussed the situation of Fiorentina’s strikers, debating Arthur Cabral’s role and possible reinforcements in the summer before veering into another topic that’s a bit of a bummer: why the Viola play both up and down to whatever team they’re facing that day. The highlight, however, is a conversation with Danny Penza, our favorite (only?) Juventus-supporting friend and boss of Black & White & Read All Over. We chew over what’s working and not working for the Bianconeri with a view to figuring out what match day 38 might bring.
Along the way, we learned that Mike is absolutely fearless in the face of jinxes, that Tito is ready to jump on the beefy striker train, and that maybe Juve should avoid Brazilian midfielders surnamed Melo.
