Serie B & Below

Recommended Posts

In Serie B, it's a tight race to get into Serie A.

Having spent time in Foggia during the Zeman years, it's great to see them in 1st  by 6 points with just a few games remaining. Would love to see them in the top division.

Good shout out. Those old Parma teams used to be incredible.

Parma are currently 8 points behind Flippo Inzaghi's Venezia with 5 games to go. 

But should make the Lega Pro Playoffs, alongside some names Serie A fans might be familiar with. Livorno, Piacenza (Dario Hübner anyone?), Reggiana (Now owned by Mike Piazza), Lecce and Catania are all currently in the playoff spots.

Foggia are 1 point away from gaining automatic promotion. What an absolute dream season for them this year. 

From the old days of Zemen, to their 2 collapses, it's great to see them climb back up the ranks and now get themselves into Serie B.

Macheda is sitting on 2 goals, as Novara is up 3-1 on Frosinone. Talk about players who never panned out. The 2 today takes his season tally to a whopping 5 goals on the year.

I hate every single team in the Serie B, they always fuck my bets.

I'm not a big fan of any of them in particular either. I guess I enjoyed Cesena when they were up.

Next year they will have Palermo, which is one of the teams I really like so that'll suck.

Not to mention Foggia will be back up, and they play a great style of football so with both on them in the league, I'll be more keen on it next year for sure.

Pisa, best defence in the league, still going to be relegated.

Yes - When you play with 10 guys in the back, you are going to allow few goals, and score even less.

Parma will be in the playoffs. But instead of them going straight to playoffs, they will match up all the promotion play off teams and play 1 round against another randomly drawn team, and then weed it down until you have 4 left, which play for the right to go to Serie B.

Good to see them back, they have financially collapsed three times in their history? That is too much even for such a famous club. Hope they get back to Seria A as they are a big club with rich history.

Pippo Inzaghi continues to impress and rise through the league with Venezia (and their American owners).

Meanwhile, speaking of rising, Parma are already back in Serie B and haven't yet ring up millions of debt again (that we know of).

And those of a certain generation will look at some of the names of some teams and think back to the days of Football Italia and Championship Manager.

Parma having a great year thus far, currently sitting in 4th after 21 matches.

I think Palermo and Bari are the teams going up automatically, but it would be fantastic for the fans of Parma if there were to get one of the top 2 spots.

Zeman sacked by Pescara, with them sitting midtable.

Maybe not the biggest news, but for anyone who was a Serie A fan in the Football Italia days on Channel 4, he holds a special place.

Parma one win away from securing a return to Serie A :D!!!

They need to beat Spezia next week and hope Frosinone drop points at home to Foggia.

Empoli already promoted as champions.

Fantastic news for everyone who grew up watching Italian football in the 90's.

In tribute, this is well worth a listen.

All summer to try and sort something out, and here we are weeks before the season is supposed to start and they haven't even decided what teams are going to be in the division.
