1. What service are you using for streaming? -

None now, since all matches are available in TV for me again from this season. That's what I mentioned in that 'grazie Cristiano' paragraph Last season, I used to go to this reddit link and look for streams: https://www.reddit.com/r/soccerstreams/ I guess acestream is the most dependable nowadays.

2. Do you read news/columns in Italian for the side drama (i.e. Preziozi's scouting, Genoa's court battle for 1930s Scudetto)? Or do you follow a blog for this type of things? Very interesting reads indeed.

All from podcasts and gazzetta. I read the gazzetta every day, and I follow podcasts like Golazzo (Horncastle, Marcotti and Jimbo - I recommend this as the most insightful calcio panel around), the Totally Football show and On the Continent.

3. Bologna just gave Pippo Sansone and Soriano, do you think they can give the team a lift? Or maybe I am thinking of the Soriano who left Sampdoria and Sansone who left Sassuolo for Villareal and not their current form.

Yes, I think both are good signings. That is one way Bologna can beat SPAL - they can definitely invest more in staying up than SPAL can. I'm not sure how good Soriano is any more, but Sansone surely can score a few important goals. Pippo has the confidence of the management which is a good thing, since he's a much improved coach than he was at Milan. He really did do a marvellous job at Venezia from all accounts - never watched them myself.

Personally, I am in favor of Serie A regulars to remain in Serie A (Chievo, Bologna, Genoa) and teams like Empoli, SPAL, Frosinone get relegated

I really like Empoli, and Chievo never deserved to start in Serie A this season. So hopefully Empoli will survive. For one, I have a weakness for small Tuscan towns. Secondly, Empoli might not have spent many seasons in Serie A, but they have a great record of youth development.. Montella, Di Natale are two top-of-mind names who learned their trade at Empoli...and our own Abate - his speed as a fullback was first noted by us during his loan spell at Empoli.
Thanks. My thoughts in bold after your questions.

Valter Birsa will go to Cagliari for €2M. Underrated buy.

Really appreciate that. Is Gazzetta in Italian? And I will definitely check out those podcasts. One thing I find really charming about Serie A is the crazy presidents and off-the-field drama with the players and their wives.

Birsa has good technique, could be a key player for a mid/lower table side.

Yes Gazzetta is in Italian. They had an English version some time back but Iím not sure if the content is as exhaustive.

Kuco is back! Parma signed him. More reason to watch them play.

OFFICIAL: Empoli have officially sold midfielder Hamed Traore to Fiorentina but confirm he will see the season out with them.

Very nice move, IMO.

juventus in return would have asked serie A to add 2 titles to their official tally in response to accusations of their fans being racist.

Genoa's big sales in the last years (the small circle is the amount they paid, the big circle is how much they sold them for)

^^ Now that's not a bad return at all. Nothing spectacular either though, the time frame is around 10 years.

Koulibaly, Insigne, and Allan suspended. Although they have a really good record against Lazio.

You think that level of physicality and control while on the floor is easy?
