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.
