Welcome back to Thunder Roar
In the three days of midweek matches, three different teams took turns at the top of the standings, Napoli won, the only one still with full points. The show against Sampdoria and in particular the test of strength of Osimhen enhance the blues. Spalletti plays hiding, but has a deep and well-organized team, for Paolo Condò the advantage is small but significant. He chases Milan than with Venice suffered more than expected, but he enjoys a Theo Hernandez truly devastating. Waiting for the return of the titular attack is Brahim Diaz becomes immovable. Then there is Inter: he discovered in Florence that he can have the same solidity as last year and rediscovered the qualities of his captain Handanovic.

The Giallorossi get there better, victorious and further on in the standings, even if you give up Lorenzo Pellegrini, while on the other side Immobile launches the “We are losing enthusiasm” alarm.

Romano Fogli and the last scudetto of Bologna
He’s gone too. He was the last one left, Roman Sheets, of that magnificent Bologna that now really plays everything in Paradise. Negri, Furlanis, Pavinato; Tumburus, Janich, Sheets; Perani, Bulgarelli, Nielsen, Haller, Pascutti. There is no longer any of those eleven holders, unforgettable heroes of the last rossoblù championship, dated 1964.
