I know at least one person here will be interested: Hellas Verona FC in a playoff final for promotion out of Lega Pro Prima (formerly known as Serie C) against Pescara. First leg at home ends 2-2; 1-0 to Verona at half time, but defender sent off for dodgy handball call. Pescara grab two goals, but Verona equalise right on the buzzer. Highlights with Italian commentary!

Since Pescara finished ahead in regular season, i giallobl� must win the return fixture away to get back into Serie B.

As I've said elsewhere, if Hellas are promoted then my loyalties will conflict as my beloved Livorno are also in Serie B next year, but...

Interesting to see how you like two teams that sit at the opposite end of the political scale.
on the one hand, the extreme right-wing with neo-nazi tendencies Hellas Verona and on the other, the left-wing, revolutionary red-brigade Livorno.
Sure, you [usually] don't support your teams because of their political affiliations, but this is a bit of a pickle!

Very much in the driving seat - third time we've defeated Salernitina this season, bring on a fourth and bring on Serie B! On the way back up!

Salernitana up 1-0 at half time. Goal just before the HT whistle - penalty kick for alleged tripping inside the box. Verona still leading 2-1 on aggregate. Hellas Verona, vinci per noi!

VITTORIA!!!! PROMOZIONE!!!!*
SOLO
HELLAS!!!!


*ahem* Final score 1-0, Hellas Verona win 2-1 on aggregate and are promoted to Serie B.

One step closer to back where we belong

I am so freakin' overjoyed right now!

*Promozione as in Promotion, as in "Hellas Verona achieved promotion to Serie B". Not Promozione as in the 7th division of Italian football, as in "Chievo belongs in the Promozione"

What a great year for the Giallobl� teams. AFC Wimbledon and Hellas promoted. Now just need Mt Albert Ponsonby to win the NRFL Div 2 and my year is complete.

It just says so much that Hellas can still get 20,000 to the ground after four years down in the fail leagues, whereas Chievo are Serie A's equivalent of Gold Coast (4-5,000 or so). But what about this new stadium they're talking about building? What would it mean to move from the Bentegodi (where I assume the mussivolanti will still be playing?)

... oh, and check the flash intro to the sito ufficiale.

AFC Wimbledon's year is also a plus for me, throw in Swansea and I've liked a lot of promotions!

Chievo is a joke and always will be. Hellas is the only team referred to solely as Verona for a reason - they're the only real club the city has.

New stadium is part of a proposed sporting precinct put forth by our owner. It's a Hellas initiative, not a city one, so Chievo won't be welcome. I imagine if this goes ahead, we'll have Verona at New Arena Stadium. Don't give a sh*t what happens to Chievo, hopefully they'll get their own stadium in their own suburb so both of their fans can stop polluting ours

Saw the flash intro, cracked me up - the Italian text reads "Excuse the delay". Bwahaha. Now just to get back to Serie A!

Salernitana have gone bust and will have to reform down in the amateur divisions (no English-language link I can find yet, but it's all over the Italian football intarwebz). Perhaps karma for those terroni's awful behaviour after the playoff.

Gutted for Salerno, wouldn't wish that on any club.

Yeah, me and Mandorlini.

On a more serious note, I do note that Verona have been caught up in the latest huge match-fixing standard, but I haven't found a source in English or in simple Italian explaining exactly what they're being investigated for.

Two Serie A clubs must face a committee investigating renewed claims of match-fixing in Italian football.

Giuseppe Signori is the most famous name investigated in the probe
Atalanta and Udinese are among 18 clubs set to face the Italian Football Federation's (FIGC) sporting prosecutor following an investigation undertaken by the public prosecutor of Cremona.

Three Serie B teams - Ascoli, Hellas Verona and Sassuolo - 11 Pro League teams - Alexandria, Cremonese, Benevento, Ravenna, Virtus Entella, Piacenza, Esperia Viareggio, Portogruaro, Taranto, Spezia and Reggiana - and two amateur sides - Cus Chieti and Pino Di Matteo - will also be called before the prosecutor at the hearings starting early next month.

Ah, here it is:

VERONA: per responsabilit� oggettiva per omessa denuncia del direttore sportivo Mauro Gibellini (Verona-Ravenna).


As far as I can tell, something dodgy went on at a Verona-Ravenna game, and the question is why Verona didn't report it. Considering that Ravenna's sporting director is currently under house arrest, it looks like a doozy.

Verona fined �50 grand, but no points off - Chievo fined �80 grand, LOL. Atalanta docked 7 points for the coming season, sucks to be them.

Vicenza 1 - 2 Verona in the Italian Cup. MAGNAGATI VAFFANCULO!

Interesting matches in the next round: while Verona play Sassuolo, the flying donkeys of Chievo come up against my other Italian team, Livorno. That would be a sweet victory.Doloras2011-08-15 18:07:39
