Sunday we had Serie A action return. And now, it's the Coppa Italia. Aren't you glad that calcio is back? You should be. Why? Because it's a whole lot better than talking about transfer rumors all day long.
Then again, it seems like everybody wants to talk about transfer rumors. Have you guys seen the Twitter machine lately? Man, that place is a hotbed for these pesky rumors. You hear the one where Conte is gonna be Real Madrid's next manager and Gigi Buffon will be sold to make way for Leo Messi's signing? Yeah! And all of this
Oooooooh. I'm just kidding.
So, the final eight of the Coppa Italia. Pretty sure we know who Juventus is playing. Then again, if you don't know, take a look at the headline of this post. Or, we could hope Juve are playing Milan if they have any kind of squad left by the time tonight's match rolls around. They seem to be in the selling mood lately and have basically run out of Brazilians. This just doesn't seem right to me.
Welp. I guess we'll just have to deal with it.
Let us hope Martin Caceres finds the awesome again if he does in fact play. Remember that? It was pretty awesome.
