Verona

Any Fellow Butei on this board???
Mezz

Think you might be on your own there, dio boia! How are Verona getting on these days anyway?

I spent a week there a few years ago, beautiful city but I thought that a lot of the locals were quite stand-offish and not overly keen on tourists.
Guest

Verona are currently bottom of Serie C1/A, 2 wins all season, already on our 3rd coach (with rumours he will be axed shortly)

we've just lost today to ternana, this season has been a disaster!!

I was re-directed here, being told this was a verona forum!

Ooh... I knew they weren't doing to well, but that's pretty serious...

not sure, someone on this board (one of the mods i think)
i posted on the channel 4 forum but apparantly no-one uses that.
i'd posted about Hellas asking if anyone follows them and someone posted with the link 'verona forum'.

it's been deleted now so dunno who put it.

and yes mezz, it's more than bad, it's abysmal.
yet the curva is full every week, unlike the rest of the bentegodi
Dave

It was Myles who posted the link to here - I occasionally look in to see how well the insurgency is going over there...  I assume that the implication that this was a Verona forum was because he was trying to disguise the link from the C4 mods for as long as possible.

I must admit that I'd no idea how bad things had become for Verona, since I'd rather failed to keep up with Serie B last year and hadn't even worked out they'd been relegated.
Mezz

Ah, just goes to show how often I gaze upon the car crash once known as the C4 forum these days.

Dave

'Car crash' suggests some sort of energy, Mezz. Go over there and you have to avoid the tumbleweed drifting across the site. The front page has a thread on it with the last posting date being September. I'm sure the C4 Mods will think of an excuse for another sticky thread to push that off the page.

Interestingly, a new member (1 posting) seems to have appeared shortly after Zico opened the thread on the C4 foro, asking exactly the same question - but instead of answering Zico's query on the new Verona thread, the new user went and located a thread that hadn't been posted on for three months ...  Incidentally, the sig for the new member concludes with an offensive piece of Italian, which would've led to any of us being banned for employing it.

Being a cynical sort, I can't help wondering if the C4 mods are creating new user accounts in a desperate attempt to reinvigorate the place..
Guest

haha, that new member was me, Butei!!!

but i changed it for this forum as i use the name zico for my english clubs messageboard
Guest

I don't mind Verona, very sad to see what's going on at the moment.. Another 2-0 loss today, surely there's no way back now. I was hoping you'd stay up and Vicenza go down, I'd have been up for a local derby.
Guest

after reading the book about Verona I always have a look for their results

Ah-ha - so you got your posting in at about the same time that the C4 Mods were destroying the evidence that this forum exists, reducing your post count there to 1. If they'd reacted with such speed to complaints about heavy-handedness, this forum might never have come about...

it's beyond desperate, we're down for certain now.

the 3-2 defeat on monday was the final straw, the club is in a mess, on and off the pitch. the players are awful, the coach is awful, everything is a shambles.

but i'll never fall out of love, Forza Hellas, Campeon!!! /=\
Guest

Hellas in the playouts for definite. At 4 points adrift at the bottom there is little hope of even avoiding automatic drop.

I am going to the Bentagodi in April - when I booked the flights at the start of the season I hoped I would witness promotion back to Serie B - no f......g chance of that happening   .  I fear I will see us get relegated that day  

Keep the faith. Sempre Gialloblu
Guest

Butei! This season has shown that a big name means nothing without a capable squad and mister, hopefully we manage to make the play-outs and pull of la salvezza, unlikely as it is.

If we can stay up, next year we can build with some of the young players hopefully better from the experience.

Per sempre Hellas, per sempre gialloblu

Napoli Merda!
Guest

dio boia!!!!

if we don't win on sunday, surely we're down??

i cant take much more of this, both wednesday and hellas down in the same season?surely the god's dont hate me this much!

Still, there was always 1985  
Guest

BUTEI!!!!!!!!!
Guest

ALE VERONA ALE ALE ALE ALE!!!!!!

Guest

 
Get in !!!!

ale Verona.
Guest

forgot to mention, we got rid of our 4th coach last week, and brought back the 2nd, former player Davide Pellegrini.

this is such a roller-coaster season!
Guest

MASSIVE favour to my italian residing friends!!!

there is no chance of getting verona stuff living here, and i desperately want the home shirt from this season.

would anyone be interested in buying the shirt and then sending it me, if i pay via pay-pal??? i'll send the money before you send the shirt, so you can trust me!!!

PM me if anyone wishes to help!

2-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Guest

last minute winner, 2-1!!!

the comeback is well and truely on!!!

grazie pellegrini!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Guest

a bit of analysis for those of you who care (im sure there are about 2 of those)

1 down on 10 mins, bit of a scrappy game until orfei scored the equaliser, then end to end stuff, rafael making one world class stop, then di bari(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) scoring a 20 yard rocket in the 3rd min of injury time to win it.

and when it went in i leapt from my seat i jumpt so high i smashed my head on the lightbulb, shattered it and have a big cut in the top of my head!!!!!

but it was so worth it!!!!!
Guest

ale ale!!!!
Hellas Boys.
Anything is possible now.
Guest

I read your posts mate and its good to see Hellas trying to get out of their precarious situation, it would be a real shame if they went any further down the divisons. Unfortunately i dont quite share the same love or enthusiasm as you do.

btw is your head alright now

it's ok now, i'm calling it my battle scar!!!

seriously though, im not the tallest so to reach the lightbulb shows how high i jumped. my italian isnt the best so listening to the commentary is difficult, the winner was just shit loads of words, then ALEALEALEALEALEALEALEALEALEALE BOOMBOOMBOOMBOOMBOOMBOOMBOOM DI BARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRIIIIIIIIII (this is radio verona's commentators reaction to every goal with the name of the player obviously changing)

its amazing how even though i have no italian roots or hellas connections, i can care so much, they're easily on par with my english team with whom i had a season ticket with since the age of 10.

2 wins in a row, level on points with paganese, i thought it was all over 2 weeks ago but now there is hope.

it pisses me off seing chievo top in B as well, fake club, fake supporters.

I know how you feel Zico.

I have become obsessed in the last 4 or 5 years. I see a blue and yellow police car and the first thing I think is cool - Forza gialloblu.
I found myself taking a photo of a blue and yellow corner flag at my sons football the other day !
Maybe I should get a life

In a few weeks I will be at the Bentegodi to see Hellas hopefully slaughter Novaro.

The commentator is Roberto Puliero I think - a nutter !

Foligno 0-1 Hellas

9th minute.

cant believe it, 2 wins all season now we're on for 3 in a row
Guest

ARREMBAGGIO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

lost 2-1, gutted. give a more in depth description later, for now i just want to reflect
Guest

I have just joined after leaving channel4

I am not Italian I have no Italian roots but have been drawn to Hellas ever since I visited the city 8 years ago. We may go down again this season but we have to remain optimistic and hope that someday maybe in the near future that we will return to where we rightfully belong in Serie A.

Following on from a disastrous (but expected) defeat against Padova a 3-0 reverse at home, Hellas got back to winning ways with a wonderful 3-2 victory away to Monza with that boy Di Bari scoring in the 92nd minute to secure another 3 points. Another vital match coming up against Lecco who sit 4 places but only 4 points above us.

Forza Hellas
zeds

You guys probably don't care...but Chievo seem on cours for a return...
Guest

Another win. Were off the bottom.
Giallobluuuuuuuuuu  
Guest

sorry havent been on here in ages, im sure you've all missed me!!!!

we're off the bottom, which is a miracle in itself, last sunday we had a must not lose game against paganese, a relegation 6 pointer in every sense of the word. we were battered and were leading 1-0 but a very very very debatable penalty meant it finished 1-1.

oh well, i think we'd have settled for the play-outs, but a win against manfredonnia could mean we even avoid that!!!!!

as for chievo, f**k chievo, prostitutes of italian football
Guest

Me and 3 friends went to the game against Navaro. To stand in the middle of the curva sud at the Bentegodi was fantastic. A 2-1 win for Hellas was great. Hopefully now survive the play-outs. We were invited out on the Saturday night by a group of Hellas fans and then were their guests at the match on the sunday. Was unbelievable. When it comes to supporting teams then I think English fans could learn so much from our Italian friends. An unforgettable weekend in Verona!!!!!!!!!!!
Guest

i have tears in my eyes, we have just scored in the 89th minute in the play-out vs pro patria, making it 2-1 on aggregate.

Illyas Zeytulaev scoring, i am in tears, salvation when it was impossible.

ale verona ale, ale verona ale, ale veronaaaaaalllee, forza giolloblu!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

one of the best moments of my entire life
Guest

Good to see that theyve stayed up
Curva Fiesole

Good to see Chievo back in Serie A  
Guest

I'm sad that Hellas the true team of Verona have sunken so low down into the lower leagues and im glad that they survived from another relegation. I hope we don't have another Pro Vercelli on our hands. I find it annoying that the majority of Cheivo fans were likely to  have been in the bentigodi a few years ago
Forza Roma and Forza Hellas
Guest

good start to the season, a draw then a 2-1 win at home to spal.
big game tommorow at sambenedetesse(!!!)remember them napoli???

forza hellas, roma merda
Guest

fantastic!
a good 1-0 win (at home,my bad). we had plenty of chances, corrents goal was comical, but Samba missed the easiest chance they'll ever get, open goal and just blasted it.

protests from the fans for the president to sell up, although the way we've started this season, they may die down.

lets hope we can keep it up
Guest

Just a quick update: sitting 8th in the table with 20 points, 7 points off top. Unbeaten in 8 matches! Lost only 1 of 8 away games this season but have not won away yet with 7 draws.

Who knows what may happen at this rate.

Forza Gialloblu
Guest

it looked as though the coach was going to be axed but a good run has saved his skin. and watch out for cristian tiboni, he's a f**king legend in the making, think he's owned by udinese.
Guest

Cesena 2-1 Hellas

BOOOOOOOOO
Mezz

Can you chaps please take a moment to look at this thread and give Myles a few suggestions regarding alternative club nicknames or Ultra/tifosi group names?

With the C4 forum now dead, this is a great opportunity to get more traffic through our site:

Guest

Remondina has hung onto his job for another season, strange considering the season we had, although improvements have been made.

Girardi has returned to the smaller veronese side, but our star keeper rafael has signed for 2 more seasons.

Selva has signed from Sassuolo, he took them up 2 seasons ago so hopefully will do the same for us.

also, a nice side note. A quote from the mayor of verona

" You are the real Verona, the only true Veronese side, you and only you represent the people of Verona"

Back to the Curva Nord you go Donkeys

FORZA HELLAS!!!

just a priest spreading the word of Hellas!
Guest

disgraceful. our fixtures STILL aren't out, although they've announced which teams will be competing in Serie C/Lega Pro next year.

and suprise suprise, pretty much every team in Hellas' league is a southern team, the authorities are scared of our large and legendary support so make Verona travel further than every other team. we are in c1/b this season rather than c1/a like the last couple.

one of the better players Rantier has signed till 2011, but girardi has gone back, think he's loaned to cesena.

i feel a strong, serious and ambitious project coming along at Verona this season, we need to be back in B very soon to take WC-enza down a peg or 2.
Guest

I hope you guys get back on your feet soon, I miss seeing Hellas Verona in the Seria A  without you and bari the seria A hasn't quite been the same for me...... still atleast you're not chievo who will be relegated next season  
Myles

We lost in Padova but we'll win next time
VinciPerNoiMagicaBrescia

I had to rub my eyes twice to make this is real.  

Mastini fan?  

this is really refreshing to see. unlucky against Padova yesterday but otherwise a really good start to the season. A long way to go and I don't expect Sassuolo to stay at the top.
Guest

Hi Guys,

So with the season a mere 6 and a bit weeks away, what are your realistic expectations of Verona? Luca Toni a good signing or just for shirt sales?

Personally, I think we should stave off relegation and may surprise a few people. The Bentegodi needs to be made into a fortress! I think the signing of Donati is a strong move and Toni might deliver the goods.

Any ideas on when the fixtures come out? Going to be in Verona the first weekend of the season and would hope to catch them in action.

Forza Gialloblu
Mezz

Toni will score goals for the team, but it just depends on how far behind Verona actually are when he hits the net!
Domenic

Toni is way past it and I wouldn't pin any hopes on him. 15th-18th is a realistic finish, there's still time for signings and loans though.
Mezz

Past it? Toni scored 8 league goals in 27 games last season and was largely only used as a sub.

That's only 2 goals less than David Villa who made 28 appearances and was also largely used as a sub.

Fernando Torres made 36 league appearances last year and scored 8, but anyone with even half a clue wouldn't say either he or Villa are past it... perhaps Hellas have stumbled upon a hidden chest of Nazi gold and are about to steal a march on PSG to land Cavani?
Domenic

Torres is garbage and Villa has another year or two left at the top level, yeah they're "past it" just like Luca Toni. If you don't think a 36 year old striker who's had 1 good season in the past 5 years isn't done I'm not sure what to tell you.

If he even comes close to repeating his performances from last year I'll gladly eat my words.
Guest

In an ideal world I would love to see Toni score 10+ goals this season. I think the problem will be the supply to him!

I also see problems defensively. As Pescara found last year, you need quality defenders and I think that might be Verona's downfall.

Hope I'm proven wrong but would like some decent loan signings come in, another striker and a few defenders. Would also hope that Jorginho would stay and resist the temptation to go to Liverpool.
Mezz

Just to clarify, are we basing this word-eating proclamation on Luca Toni's whole season or does his five goals in nine appearances so far make my point?

I'm easy either way, honestly...
nino

I think we can safely say he's "come close to repeating his performances from last year".
