    I've never said they don't, but their attitude is (was, at least yesterday) hateful.

    And I can say the same thing for Barella by the way, he's been just ridicolous, he spent the whole first half complaining with the referee.

    I speak for myself, I don't like or support Juventus in any way so the Calciopoli thing is meaningless.

    You are doing the same, you are calling me a chater just like I did with those spanish teams.

    Yeah, Barella, and I just said he acted like a clown for the whole match.

    edit: The fact that you take for granted that I'm okay with Calciopoli or that I'm a cheater just because I'm italian leaves me a bit perplexed and it's also a bit offensive lol
    And I obviously don't think that all the people from Spain are cheaters (it's absurd I have to explain it), I just noticed that Sevilla, Atletico, Barca act like that in various occasions.

    Anyway, I didn't want to get there, I just wanted to talk about the match.

    Sevilla deserved and won, we lost every single decisive game and yesterday we showed again our "poor" mentality.

    By the way Conte is out. He ran away just like he did with Chelsea and Juve. What a disappointment.

    There wasn't one club involved in the scandal, it was a major Italian football scandal. It didn't happen in any other country, it was an Italian scandal. The connotations between cheating and Italian football didn't begin in 2006 either.

    I've not called you a cheater, I've just called out the obvious irony if you think what you saw last night was the most clear and obvious example of cheating in football, especially when you think it's a Spanish problem. There was playing of Inter players diving yesterday.

    And what does makes you think that I'm okay with that? lol
    I personally didn't do anything, I'm a supporter just like everyone else.
    An "italian scandal" happened 14 years ago prevents me from say that they played dirty? lol
    And again, what's the connection between diving on the pitch and Calciopoli?

    I just want to understand your point, nothing else.

    No, it just prevents you from saying it's the biggest example of cheating you've seen.

    When calling the Spanish a nation of cheats, moaned and divers, can you not see the irony?

    You cant discuss one fact here without other stuff being brought up. Very much the reason I avoid most football discussions on this forum. Its full of planks

    It doesn't at all.

    Calciopoli was a whole different thing, I'm talking about players diving, moaning and complaining after they score.
    I really don't know why you bring Calciopoli here because it has no connection with what I was saying.

    There is no major scandal here, don't worry. There is a team that started playing "dirty" after they scored.
    Can they do that? Yes. It's hateful? Yes.
    Peace.
    It happened yesterday and it will happen again. And I will always find it hateful, just like I found shameful Barella and his attitude.

    Calciopoli is dead and buried even here, luckily.

    To be fair with Cassio, I find the spaniards diving and whining much more insuferable than when the italians do it. The italians have experted the trade over the past 50-odd years, we're used to that by now. The spaniards used to play football and get on with it. For the past decade, they've become little bitches which is why I can't say I'm happy Seville won last night. Inter deserved that trophy more throughout the tournament but not on the night.

    The Spanish sides are easily the worst for shithousing.

    You've used the word cheating. Bribery is an example of something associated with Italian football. I've just used it as an example, but on top of that yes, you're also known for diving, moaning and complaining, which Inter players were doing as well yesterday. It's just that this time they ended up on the wrong end of the result, but they'd be right there doing everything Sevilla players did if they had the lead at that stage of the game.

    If you can't see the irony in your statement, then you're delusional.

    The only one who associate bribery with italian football is you, since you are referring to something happened 14 years ago and has nothing to do with italian football today.
    And bribery doesn't have anything to do with that.

    Anyway I can see the irony and i'm not delusional, but I'm not used to see us as divers and moaners.
    The only one who had this shameful attitude yesterday was Barella.

    I think we can end this useless discussion.

    How many matches did Bounou play for Sevilla before returning to his club?

    Not sure what you meant by Atletico? They won nothing this season.

    Sevilla won the Europa and that's partly thanks to Alexis Sanchez miss. He didn't have to fall.

    Second round qualifying draw is at 11am. They've split the draw in to groups.

    We'll play either Greek, Bulgarian or Albanian opposition.

    Third round draw is Tuesday I believe.

    We're away.

    Find out our fate for the third round today but UEFA have split the draw in to smaller groups.

    We could potentially be off to Israel or Kazakhstan the following week. The same week we enter the league cup.

    Mourinho will be desperate for a home draw today :laugh:
