Supporting an Italian Club!

I have supported Napoli since I was 8 and my uncle who lives in Nepal and supports Napoli, made me support Napoli and from then on I have supported them.I much prefer seria a to Bpl so I became very passionate about it. I get quite a bit of hate at school for liking Italian football not English.Wondering if anyone else found this the case for them?
Sorry for posting my life story.Lol

I wouldn't say 'hate', but I know what you mean.  A lot of football fans can be ignorant at the best of times, and as I've grown up I've learned not to take lazy, stereotypical views so seriously.

All part of growing up though.

Are we talking about ITV again ?

Thankfully I didn't go to school with Clive Tyldsley!

I actually prefer ITV to the BBC these days as well.  Mainly because of that vile creature Mark Lawrenson who continues to pollute so many aspects of their football coverage.

His opinions so far this summer have included suggesting a player with a dislocated shoulder was faking injury, and also suggesting some players look like they "don't want to be here".  This from a man who hasn't sounded or looked bothered about a football match for atleast a decade, but still claims a lot of public money in salary to watch the sport.

He also managed to offend Jonathan Pearce on air when he had a dig at a couple of overweight looking physios (Pearce not being the thinnest with all due respect).

And throughout all his sneering, xenophobic views and shit jokes, there's not been one piece of analysis from him that is worth listening to.  Tyldsley and Townsend are a joy to listen to in comparison to the cretin "Lawro".

A bit of a rant that, but I feel better now.

I've never had any time for Townsend.

I find it very difficult to listen to this 'expert' criticise the world's finest players when the pinnacle of his own career was winning the League Cup...

I probably should make it clear I dislike Tyldsley and Townsend as well.  Reading through my last post it reads as though I'm praising them.

I just happen to prefer them to Lawrenson, although it is a case of choosing whether you'd like to cut off your left arm or your right arm.

Better out than in. Lawro rage can damage your health.
