Re: English Football 2015-16

It's not quite like Giovinco now in the USA but there was something about the way someone like Carbone, really small skill player, was able to express his talents in another environment. I remember having high hopes for him at Inter already but him in England was another kind of entertaining.

Di Canio performances I have almost zero recollection of pre-Celtic. Just someone who was always way down the pecking order for the big Italian teams but he did play some I see - checking his wiki.

Do you actually know how old he is? Or Are we playing the
'guess the age of a random arsetard' game?

I've no idea. There's a small chance he's over 50.

Loved Carbone too, obviously. This is one of my favourite goals:



Di Canio is definitely a strange one. For one thing, he peaked quite late. I think he probably spent his best years at West Ham, and looking at Wiki those were between 31-35. I made the Le Tissier comparison and it's apt in another sense when considering international careers (or lack thereof). I think Di Canio's talent is often undermined because he never got a full cap for Italy. Rather than him not being talented enough, I think it's more a case of why risk bring in such a loose cannon in when there are so many other great players who are far less of a risk? In addition to this, it is hard to see how he would naturally fit in a team with Del Piero. Both loved to have the ball and pull the strings and if you asked one of them to play a more withdrawn role you probably lose quite a lot even if you can make it work. It's sort of like Barcelona with Messi and Neymar, except they're a club side so they can dedicate more time to making the dynamic work. They do make it work but it's not surprising to see Neymar flourish even more in Messi's absence.

Is anyone else not convinced Jose slaps that kid? That video doesn't show it at all

Re: English Football 2015-16

Carbone was at Bradford. Remember him scoring in a 2-0 win against Chelsea a few games before Vialli was sacked.

Think it was the same season Collymore was there (debut goal a bicycle kick - nothing else after). They got relegated.

Eden Hazard has reportedly told his club and international team-mates that he's made the decision to leave #Chelsea next summer. [L'Équipe]
