Go for it Ghana!

Ghana_football_team.jpg

Ghana go, go go! Go for it Ghana! These smiling young men from Ghana are our hope, our future, and our salvation.
If they win, I’ll invite them all to my house at my expense. We’ll have a great Afro Genovese party to celebrate the rebirth of our football and the defeat of giggirrriva, and of lippinoonespeak.

Of those subsidized by the sponsors that say nothingnothing. Like Del Piero who has been with Juve for a life time and has never seen anything. Like Cannavaro, the lawyer on the field of Moggi. Like Buffon who was betting on the matches and then cried.

We’ve got a national team that seems to have come out of Regina Coeli {a prison}, or perhaps they’ve got to go in there. But there are exceptions. And when aren’t there exceptions? But this bunch of exceptions, a Totti for example, they should have been giving an example and staying home. This is the national team of the sponsors.
This is the national legitimate and bastard daughter of the scandal of rigged games, of false accounting, of true scouts that toured round gatherings of the pale blues with threats and flattery. And among the true scouts there’s Lippi’s son.
But Marcello, with all the possible careers in the world, it was really this one that you made him take up? And do you seriously think that there’s no conflict of interest with your role as coach of the national team?

From the ten pages of a month ago about the football scandal, the newspapers have now got to one, or half or nothing.
Do you know why? Do you believe that they want to protect the national team? The climate? The results?
Nope. They want to protect the interests of the sponsors, who pay for advertising in the newspapers, who pay for advertising on the TV, the radio.

They want to protect Sky, the Rai, Publitalia.
If Italy wins, we are done for, our football is dead.
If we love Italy, if we love the game of football, if we love a minimum of honesty, of decency, we must all shout: Go for it Ghana!!!!
Make them angry our pale blues.

Hi Beppe,
do something.
Please go to the european union and help Italy solve this scandal. Many maffiosi are getting away with it.
greetings,
someone who claims to have some knowledge of the serieA

Dear All,

From somebody who is not Italian but has been an Inter fan all her life from overseas, and loves Italian calcio, please, try not to punish all the guys in the team for what is going on with the corruption scandal in Italy. Keep in mind that not all the apples are bad!

Besides, if it makes you feel any better, you guys should know that the Italian team has a ton of fans all over the world that are not even Italian!!

I will try to watch the game on Thursday and hope it is a great match, but in the end, I hope Italy wins! A final Brazil-Italy would be such a pleasure to see!

Forza Azzurri today and always!

Ahahahah!
What will you do tonight? Will you support USA?
ROTFL.
You wrote "Like Del Piero who has been with Juve for a life time and has never seen anything".
Well...You MUST know that Alessandro del Piero is a man, while you're not. You should only respect him.

Dear Beppe...You're only an asshole.

I was sure that this subject was a good one to remove the spirits. There is nothing better to see people running after a ball when they are not splitting or putting their fingers in their noses or elsewhere:-)
There are always people ready to say any silly thing in any language even if they would have to write it with their ass.So, finally, italians won but I'm sure that this subject will go on. Now I'm waiting the one who on the other side, is posting everyday the same lamentations about his health and I will be happy:-)

Dear Beppe, please, do not waste your time talking about Italy-Ghana, we have more important things to do. For example, while we watch our wonderful team of corrupted players, children malnutrition in Iraq is doubling thanks to our sense of democracy and justice. The humanitarian disaster has been sponsored with our money. While the majority of Italians (or Italiots?) are concerned about Gila or Del Piero, and enlightened politicians like Ignavio La Russa call for Amnesty for the soccer scandal, 9% of Iraqi children are starving to death (source UN).
Keep up with the good work!

Per quattordici anni, diconsi quattordici anni, la Fininvest ha scippato vari privilegi, complici i partiti: la Dc, il Pri, il Psdi, il Pli e il Pci con la loro stolida inerzia; e il Psi con il suo attivismo furfantesco, cui si deve tra l’altro la perla denominata “decreto Berlusconi”, cioè la scappatoia che consente all’intestatario di fare provvisoriamente i propri comodi in attesa che possa farseli definitivamente. Decreto elaborato in fretta e furia nel 1984 ad opera di Bettino Craxi in persona, decreto in sospetta posizione di fuorigioco costituzionale, decreto che perfino in una repubblica delle banane avrebbe suscitato scandalo e sarebbe stato cancellato dalla magistratura, in un soprassalto di dignità, e che invece in Italia è ancora spudoratamente in vigore senza che i suoi genitori siano morti suicidi per la vergogna.
(Vittorio Feltri, L’Europeo, 11 agosto 1990, subito dopo l’approvazione della legge Mammì)

Il dottor Silvio di Milano 2, l’amico antennuto del Garofano, pretende tre emittenti, pubblicità pressoché illimitata, la Mondadori, un quotidiano e alcuni periodici. Poca roba. Perché non dargli anche un paio di stazioni radiofoniche, il bollettino dei naviganti e la Gazzetta ufficiale, così almeno le leggi se le fa sul bancone della tipografia?
(Vittorio Feltri, L’Europeo, dopo la conquista berlusconiana della Mondadori e l’approvazione della legge Mammì)

Caro Di Pietro, è meglio che si riguardi. Le faranno la guerra con disonestà, che è la loro arma migliore... Già hanno detto che lei è manovrato da Tizio, Caio e Sempronio... che lei fa il gioco oscuro di oscuri golpisti... che lei è un esaltato e agisce non per spirito di giustizia, ma per farsi bello con le folle... Ora diranno che lei in fondo non è uno stinco di santo e troveranno qualche calunniatore disposto a buttare lì qualche pettegolezzo velenoso... Se riescono a smontare lei, smontano anche l’inchiesta. La sua fortuna è di essere bravo e libero: cioè invidiato.
(Vittorio Feltri, L’Indipendente, 15 giugno 1992)

Che i giudici mirassero non a moralizzare bensì a condizionare la politica è una menzogna. Onorevole Craxi, cosa vuole che importi a Di Pietro delle finalità politiche. I giudici lavorano tranquilli, in assoluta serenità: sanno che i cittadini sono dalla loro parte. Come dalla loro parte siamo stati noi, sempre.
(Vittorio Feltri, L’Indipendente, 16 dicembre 1992)

Delegittimando i pentiti, gli imputati dei processi di mafia si assicurano l'impunibilità... Svalutare la deposizione di chi ha commesso un reato e si è ravveduto significa smantellare interi castelli accusatori. Ecco perché i socialisti sono tra quelli che urlano con maggior vigore contro i pentiti...
Nelle deposizioni dei pentiti (che non vanno scambiati per oracoli, ma neppure respinti a priori, e sottoposti a meticolose verifiche) vi saranno forzature e falsità, ma non solo quelle. È impossibile che tutto il castello accusatorio su Andreotti sia parto della fantasia (malata o remunerata) dei picciotti passati dalla piovra alla Giustizia.
(Vittorio Feltri, L’Indipendente, 4 dicembre 1992 e 21 aprile 1993)

Ghana? Which Ghana? Ah those players who earn million of USD playing for the same teams that Mr Grillo has depicted justifying his support for the Ghanians.

Well, let me tell you something, with all my simpathies for Ghana and Grillo (now I understand why, both starts with "G"), there might have been some shit in our "A" championships but yet I can't support any other team. So since I cannot say Forza Italia (It's the party of Berlusconi and it would be apostasy against my own religion) I will say only ITALY YOU ARE THE BEST.

Hi Beppe, i'm in Dublin at the moment but when i can i always visit your blog. Usually i am agree with your post but not this time, i'm sorry. Yesterday i went in a pub to follow the match and i can tell you that even if Italian football is controlled by the sponsors and the big managers you have to say: GO ITALY!ALWAYS. Yesterday i met many Italian people and i think that if there is something that the Italian people loves to follow togheder, that's football.Specially if you are watching the match in another counrty you have to be fierce to be Italian. For this reason i want to tell you: "Be careful to say: "Go for it Ghana!". Many people from others contry should laugh and "prenderci per il culo" for that!

Hi Beppe,

I am a Genoa guy (therefore say hello to Vale from me) and I totally agree with. I am an Inter Milan fan , I know you don't like our second shareholder (sad tronchetto..), but I hate Lippi & Co much before than Moggigate, you can image now....so GoGoGo Ghana

Hi there!

Again, You've tacken my comment too seriously!

Nevertheless, belive me when I say that You won't change anything ling on a sofa!

Otherwise, benjamin BENJAMIN FRANKLIN would have made the american revolution by lying on his bedroom.

@Carlos Sabelli:
There are many kinds of revolutions, one of them is the "quiet" revolution of words. Words are magic, because they can fly everywhere and meet a lot of people. Words can change a lot of things, above all our minds. That's enough to respect them!

Posted by: Raffaella Biferale | June 13, 2006 04:13 PM


Keep quiet guys!

In other words, writing on Beppe's blog is not the way to change things.

Moreover, have you ever read about somebody who made a revolution by posting a message here.
As a result, in order to improve the European social situation it would be required to implement some kind of political theory.

To sum up, don't confuse this is fun not action!

Forza Azzurri!

Forza Roma!

Let's Kick England, The Queen, Margaret Tatcher and the House of Lords as well!

Yesterday the staff removed all the posts in italian, but today there is still somebody who is going on with this bad practice. I don't understand why! Please, click on the italian flag on the top right and the italian side of the blog will appear :-)

Tricolore:
I guess you are so stupid and ignorant
that you didn't realize that you should post
the messages in English, in this part of the Blog, otherwise click on the "tricolore" (the real one) and put a message in the only language you can speak (and very badly).
te lo traduco perché sei cosí ignorante che
sicuramente non spiaccichi una parola di inglese.
se devi scrivere stupidaggini offensive e di cattivo gusto, cambia blog o per lo meno fallo solo nella parte in italiano. almeno non rendiamo pubbliche le nostre vergogne.

Fifa is involved in a scandal.

Why is it that no one is asking 'how come Blatter manages to remain in power? How does he managge it?

easy! Just pass some crispy notes to the West indian and they will give block votes in of Blatter and you can rest assured that the only ones to suffer is the African nations.

As long as the European is the head everything is fine.

So who will give a damn about the dirty washing ,in public by the Italian football authorities,. This is life as normal as it can be.

Ok guys, but, if only you would write about it in english!

Posted by: Raffaella Biferale | June 12, 2006 06:57 PM


Ciao Beppe,

I will support the italian team despite the football scandals, and I do hope that some good will come out of this investigation. Hope though that who has committed a crime will pay.

I have been waiting four long years for some real football (it's the only one I watch).

I also think that we (the italians) are part of the problem.
We build heroes and we destroy them.
I as We indirectly support the football business by watching it on TV. It's a vicious circle and needs to be understood in its form.

Forza Italia Onesta!

Posted by: Salvatore Consolino | June 12, 2006 06:47 PM


Guys
I know that Football in Italy is sacred but if you want to write in this side of the blog you have to do it in English as a courtesy to the rest of the world, otherwise we will look like the host that doesn't care about his guests.

Posted by: Giovanni Principe | June 12, 2006 06:26 PM


too much money around the football, too much
interests...and therefore too much corruption.
I don't think we are worse in Italy, we probably have more active Judges and less "omertà"...
I spoke with a Turkish friend. He says that in Turkey everybody know football is terribly corrupted but no judge or citizen will dare to say it publically.
anyhow, enjoy the match if you like football and hope they will make a good show at least.
if we have to loose, we better loose against Africans...they deserve it!
CIAO
bloody Berlusconi, I can't even say Forza Italia, he has stolen even our slogan!!!
what shall we say?? forza azzurri? but it is his party's colour!!! bloody man, he fucked up even if he lost (finally, Thanks God!!!)

Posted by: Paolo Antonio Lovi | June 12, 2006 03:45 PM


Great Beppe!
Should I support Lippi and Cannavaro and all the others, who made our football ridicolous und dirty? the football of the doping and of the scandals? and should I let these men bring the colours of my nation in the world?
I´m Italian but I won´t support this team: ethic is more important than fun.
Let´s go Ghana!

Posted by: Stefano Virgilio | June 12, 2006 03:45 PM


Beppe,

Why don't you, Toscani and the editor of La Padania have a nice holiday trip, some 6000 miles away and stop talking bollocks?

Posted by: Paolo Ferrari | June 12, 2006 02:40 PM


It's a way to make them angry 'cause only when they are angry the italians can win. I also only can win when I don't whish it. Even if I don't believe in fortune tellers, when I'm thinking that it's not happening I will be more happy if it will be:-)
Gaiaschi doesn't understand anything about this:-)
I just wonder if Grillo is ready to cut his hairs like Lippi in case of victory. In my case, I already did it and you can verify it:-)

Posted by: blisco jaio | June 12, 2006 02:22 PM


I apologize, I suppose to write the comment in English

.....just few words...I am sick about all this stories about the Italian team....It 's to easy dear Beppe to promote and emphasize the poor Africans.....move your ass and come in here...live side by side
with them...deal with them....try to communicate with the poor Africans when they work in a pubblic office and you will realize how they really are...
To easy man... support a Country different from your , just because you want to provoke and irritate the public eye….

Posted by: Bignaga | June 12, 2006 01:28 PM


italians player dont sing the national anthem.

for me, play in the italian team must be an honor, they must be pride of that.

but they arent.

for this reason i think our players are "idiots", i havent esteem of them, but i am italian, so i support the italian nation.

beppe hai toppato, tifare addirittura x gli avversari significa rinnegare il nostro stato, le nostre origini.
se la pensi davvero cosi, levati la cittadinanza italiana, sii coerente con le tue idee, altrimenti vali meno di zero anche tu.

Posted by: tullio calestini | June 12, 2006 12:57 PM


I don't know anyone out of Italy supporting against its national team. Right or wrong it's my Country. It's not a sign of love for his own Country, let's say it's only a sign of stupidity.

Posted by: John Taylor | June 12, 2006 12:57 PM


I see your point Beppe but working in London with the English, all sure to win the world cup & you the only Italian around,well,believe me it's really hard not to support gli azzurri.

Posted by: Arrigo Beino | June 12, 2006 12:37 PM


Hi Beppe!
I am sorry, but this time I am not with you.
I am an Italian who loves Italy and being Italian. I am sad inside all the time we discover massive scandals as the football one... but I think that when these things get uncovered, it means that our country is not so undemocratic.
I hope the courts will help us in having back our football. And I hope guilties will pay for what they did.
But nothing will stop me supporting my National team. You are Italian and you know that this National team keeps us together more than most of things (even more than our flag or our national hymn, I think).
So, though I don't like many things in our football, as I still love Italy and being Italian, I will fully support our guys.
Are they just an advert? are they too rich? are they too beautiful to be true?
Beppe, does it really matter? Maybe they are not the best Italians that could be there, but for the love I have for my country, I support the idea of our team, that will play against all odds to give back to our country the dream of "being good at least in football!"

And whatever the outcome will be, this time (I hope), the refereeing system want be Moggi-dependent...
