Mafiosa extraordinaire for SBN Soccer Italia. Also can be found talking all things Napoli at The Siren's Song, and agonizing over Aston Villa at 7500 to Holte.
Decidedly non-monogamous when it comes to clubs, yet disdainful of those who choose more than one side per league.
Very fond of caps lock in times of stress. Which is often.

Ron Vlaar is not for sale, says Paul Lambert. In fact, Aston Villa are prepared to discuss new terms with the Dutchman once he returns from holiday. But will Randy Lerner sanction such spending?

Maybe they just don't love you enough, Edy

Conte's gone. Do we dare to dream?

Antonio Conte's resignation may have Juventus fans in tears, but the rest of Serie A is ecstatic. Could this be the year the Old Lady are dethroned?

What's next for the young stars of the World Cup?

We're all still trying to get to grips with the fact that the 2014 World Cup is over. The good news is that you still have plenty of opportunity to watch your favorite stars. Let us explain.

Naples, Maradona and Messi

1

Even if Lionel Messi lifts the World Cup with Argentina on Sunday evening, there remains one place he will not be crowned king.

The one thing this World Cup needed was Zlatan

This World Cup has been pretty good, but with Zlatan Ibrahimovic around, it could have been perfect.

What a sad silly season it will be

The latest name floating around the Aston Villa circles is that of Kieran Richardson, last seen with relegated club Fulham.

Do we really need to tell you who to cheer for?

2

Of course there's a connection between Napoli and Argentina. But just in case you needed that explained...

Why all the big fuss over Nicky B?

8

Aston Villa aren't in a state to be spending any money on anyone, so why would it be so bad to bring in Nicklas Bendtner on a free?

The Manchester United forward picked up a stomach bug and was unable to train with the team prior to Wednesday's match.

Villa CEO steps down, people cheer

In praise of Colombia

The dancing, the style of play, the sheer joy of everyone involved -- Colombia were knocked out of this World Cup too soon, but at least we got a bunch of great memories out of them.

World Cup, day 23: VAMOS COLOMBIA

3

Napoli fans should turn blindly partisan for Colombia's match against hosts Brazil, but first up it's France's date with Germany.

Trying to choose between James and Neymar

James. Neymar. How could you ever choose? Unfortunately, a decision will need to be made. There is no middle ground, no fence upon which to sit. Because on Friday, Brazil and Colombia meet in the...

Eight teams are in. Twenty-four have left us. Here's our goodbye to those who are no longer in Brazil.

World Cup, Day 20: let's just call this NAPOLI DAY

What's better than a normal day of World Cup action? A day in which six Napoli players are likely to see the pitch.

World Cup, day 19: Fennec Foxes go for glory

+

Napoli fans should be cheering a German upset - or at least, crossing their fingers that Faouzi Ghoulam gets into the starting lineup once more.

Sorry to break your hearts but...

James Rodríguez to Napoli? Yeah, that seems an unlikely event.

The three biggest disappointments of the World Cup

The World Cup has been phenomenal, but it hasn't been perfect. Here are the three biggest disappointments of the tournament so far -- and we don't mean any of the eliminated teams.
