The rumble of Riva – an Italian icon

Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti return to discuss Italy’s all-time leading goalscorer, the benchmark by which all Italian strikers have been measured against – Gigi Riva. Spending almost his entire career at Cagliari and leading Sardinia to its only Scudetto, why did Riva refuse to leave despite world record offers?

Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti return with the concluding part of our special on the great Gianluca Vialli. Having tackled Sampdoria and Juventus, we look at Luca’s move to England where he played for and eventually managed Chelsea to major silverware. Like a kid with the keys to a Ferrari, to quote Fabio Capello. We also examine Vialli’s complex relationship with the Italian national team and his falling out with Arrigo Sacchi. A relationship now rekindled within Roberto Mancini’s international set-up. Plus the concept of “owling” and the 1994 World Cup final.  RUNNING ORDER: • PART 1: Vialli moves to Chelsea and becomes manager (01m 00s) • PART 2: Watford, writing and witty punditry (11m 00s) • PART 3a: Vialli’s battle with cancer (18m 00s) • PART 3b: Vialli’s complicated relationship with Italy (21m 00s) • PART 4: Favourite Vialli memories and goals (28m 00s) GET IN TOUCH: • follow us on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/totallyfootballshow/) • find us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/thetotallyfootballshow/) • send us a tweet: @TheTotallyShow (http://www.twitter.com/thetotallyshow)

Materazzi: A True Underdog Story

Some know him as the Matrix, some (in France) know him as the most hated man in football. Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti review the life and times of Marco Materazzi. Derided by many as a red card or a penalty waiting to happen, Materazzi ended his career as a World Cup and treble winner.

The Udinese story: From Alexis to Zico

Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti take a trip to northern Italy and the club that became a model for shrewd scouting and punching above their weight.

Pippo Mio – an intro to Inzaghi

Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti present a long-awaited retrospective on the career of Pippo Inzaghi. He won the Champions League and the World Cup.

Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti take on The Trial, the Italian football debate show fronted by Aldo Biscardi for 36 years.

Inter’s tripletta

Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti examine the last Italian club to win the Champions League – and the only one to do the treble – Jose Mourinho’s Inter Milan. The Nerazzurri lost Zlatan but bought full-back Samuel Eto’o and an unwanted Wesley Sneijder, stumbling on the perfect formula for success. With the help of a volcano.

Maifredi and the next Juventus manager

Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti are back for the final Golazzo of the season, amid changing times for the Old Lady. With Max Allegri gone and with Juventus seemingly set to appoint Maurizio Sarri (or are they?), we go back in time to the last time the Turin giants took a gamble on a gaffer. Gigi Maifredi was supposed to be Juve’s answer to Arrigo Sacchi as he took the huge leap from Bologna in 1990 and led the Old Lady to a 7th place finish in one of their worst seasons ever. But Maifredi himself will tell you he was a managerial trailblazer and that Sacchi stole all his ideas. It’s all change in Serie A, as 5 of the top 8 are changing their managers. How will Antonio Conte fare at Inter and who will fill the vacancies at Milan and Roma? RUNNING ORDER: • PART 1: Next Juventus manager – Pep or Sarri? (01m 00s) • PART 2: Maifredi works magic at Bologna (13m 00s) • PART 3: Maifredi’s disastrous season at Juve (20m 00s) • PART 4: The aftermath for Maifredi (32m 30s) • PART 5: Serie A shake-up – Conte to Inter, vacancies at Roma and Milan and a new era in Florence (35m 30s) GET IN TOUCH: • find us on Facebook, where you’ll find video, photos and loads of other stuff. • send us a tweet: @theTotallyShow • for sales and advertising email sales@muddykneesmedia.com

Feast of the Goddess – the Atalanta fairytale

With Atalanta perhaps on the verge of Champions League football and just their second major trophy ever, Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti look at the history of Bergamo’s finest in Serie A. It’s a story that involves a thriving academy, match-fixing and Merthyr Tydfil. Plus a healthy soundtrack of songs either dedicated to or performed by the playing staff. In the modern day, Massimo Cellino is back in Serie A with Brescia. Is Antonio Conte about to follow him into Serie A at Inter or Roma?

Malesani – the meme, the manager

Before there was Sarri - and after there was Sacchi – there was Alberto Malesani. He gave up his job at Canon in Amsterdam to pursue a career in football management. He was the figurehead of one of the great Parma sides, masterminding the second most famous treble in European football in 1999. But for many, Malesani is more famous for his foul-mouthed press conferences and blames social media for his lack of involvement in the game today. We celebrate the man behind the meme in this Cazzo Golazzo. In Serie A, the race for the top 4 is hotting up and includes Atalanta and Torino. But sadly there’s another racism row involving Lazio fans. RUNNING ORDER: • PART 1a: Malesani’s tactical ethos (01m 00s) • PART 1b: Malesani at Canon (06m 00s) • PART 2a: Malesani at Chievo & Fiorentina (08m 30s) • PART 3a: Malesani at Parma and the success of 1999 (16m 00s) • PART 3b: Things start to go wrong for Malesani & the Panathinaikos rant (21m 00s) • PART 3c: Malesani’s mollo rant and his damaged reputation (29m 00s) • PART 4: Serie A roundup – Torino turn up the heat plus Lazio fans race row (33m 00s) GET IN TOUCH: • find us on Facebook, where you’ll find video, photos and loads of other stuff. • send us a tweet: @theTotallyShow • for sales and advertising email sales@muddykneesmedia.com

Kaka’s white smoking jacket

Evangelical, elegant and exceptional with the ball at his feet. Golazzo pays tribute to a Serie A great - AC Milan legend Kaka. Described by Carlo Ancelotti as the best no name player in the world, Kaka is the last player from Serie A to win the Ballon D’Or. Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti look back at the Brazilian’s life, a life that has included near-paralysis, devout Christianity and very nearly a move to Manchester City. In the present day, Juventus finally get over the line and are champions again. What will their squad look like next season? And Atalanta make their move in to the top 4. RUNNING ORDER: • PART 1a: The image of Kaka (01m 00s) • PART 1b: Kaka – the perfect Berlusconi player?

Juve v Ajax – then and now

As Ajax stun Juventus in their own backyard, Golazzo gets all nostalgic for the biggest Ajax Juve game of all time. James Horncastle joins us from Turin to tackle where the Old Lady goes from here after an exuberant Ajax eliminate Ronaldo and co from the Champions League at the quarter-final stage. Can Juve afford to press the reset button? Plus Jimbo and Gab Marcotti look back at the last time Juve won the Champions League and the 1996 final against Juventus. Specifically we’re talking about Peruzzi’s salami, Vialli’s nerves and whether or not Juve were on something. Elsewhere, Juve also blew their chance to win Serie A last weekend. Should they be nervous about their run-in? And while Chievo go down, it all kicks off at the San Siro.

Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti venture back to a time when Roma won the scudetto and embarked on their first ever European Cup campaign. Inspired by Swedish manager Nils Liedholm in the early 80s, the likes of Conti, Ancelotti and the original Falcao led the Giallorossi to the biggest game in club football, in their own stadium, against the mighty Liverpool. It’s a story involving bribery, Dundee United and ultimately a shocking tragedy, all on this week’s Golazzo. RUNNING ORDER: • PART 1a: The Serie A contenders in 82/83 (01m 00s) • PART 1b: Nils Liedholm’s journey to Rome and a young Carlo Ancelotti (04m 30s) • PART 2a: The captain Agostino Di Bartolomei (09m 00s) • PART 2b: Roma win their second Scuedtto in 82/83 (11m 00s) • PART 3a: Roma’s European Cup campaign (16m 30s) • PART 3b: The 1984 final against Liverpool (18m 15s) • PART 4a: The semi-final against Dundee United (24m 30s) • PART 4b: The suicide of Di Bartolomei (31m 30s) GET IN TOUCH: • find us on Facebook, where you’ll find video, photos and loads of other stuff. • send us a tweet: @theTotallyShow • for sales and advertising email sales@muddykneesmedia.com

All Hail Emperor Adriano

Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti look back at the life and times of your favourite player if you had Pro Evo during its pomp – Inter and Brazil’s Adriano. The man known as the Emperor had enough talent to impress Ibra and possibly the most powerful shot the game has seen. We chart the story of his rise and the tragic circumstances behind his fall. Plus there’s plenty to discuss in Serie A. And not in a good way. Juventus’s Moise Kean suffers racist abuse at Cagliari and the reaction of many, including team-mate Leo Bonucci, leaves a lot to be desired. And the airwaves on Golazzo turn (black and) blue as Luciano Spalletti opens the door for the outcast Mauro Icardi. RUNNING ORDER: • PART 1: Adriano’s legacy and strengths as a player (00m 45s) • PART 2a: Adriano arrives at Inter Milan and announces himself at the Bernabeu (03m 30s) • PART 2b: Adriano’s spells at Fiorentina & Parma (06m 45s) • PART 3a: Adriano returns to Inter as the Emperor and makes his mark with Brazil (09m 00s) • PART 4a: Adriano’s life transformed by the death of his father (13m 00s) • PART 4b: Adriano’s personal life deteriorates (18m 00s) • PART 5a: Adriano disappears from Inter and moves back to Brazil (24m 00s) • PART 5b: Adriano: Pro Evo legend (26m 00s) • PART 6a: Moise Kean racially abused at Cagliari (28m 00s) • PART 6b: Roma’s continued crisis (36m 30s) • PART 6c: The door opens for Icardi at Inter (40m 30s) GET IN TOUCH: • find us on Facebook, where you’ll find video, photos and loads of other stuff. • send us a tweet: @theTotallyShow • for sales and advertising email sales@muddykneesmedia.com

Kickstarting calcio at Spain 82

Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti look back to Italy’s World Cup win in 1982 in Spain – the summer that arguably launched Italian football and Serie A to a whole new level. Match-fixing scandals, press black-outs and strange squad selections – there was nothing about the Azzurri’s preparations that suggested World Cup glory. But Enzo Bearzot’s Italy side became icons. En route to the final, they overcame Brazil’s dream side of 82, perhaps the greatest team not to win the World Cup, in one of the tournament’s greatest ever games. Before THAT Tardelli celebration in the final. This is the story of Rossi, Gentile, Conti, Zoff and more. Plus we look at the current crop, as Italy have found their scoring boots in Euro 2020 qualifying. RUNNING ORDER: • PART 1: The political and footballing background in Italy in 1982 (01m 30s) • PART 2: The group stage begins in disappointing fashion as chaos surrounds the squad (06m 00s) • PART 3a: Italy – and Claudio Gentile – prepare to face the unstoppable Brazil (12m 00s) • PART 3b: Italy beat Brazil in a World Cup classic (18m 00s) • PART 4a: Italy overcome West Germany in the final (27m 00s) • PART 4b: The aftermath of World Cup triumph (34m 45s) • PART 5: Mancini’s Italy amongst the goals and Serie A preview (36m 45s) GET IN TOUCH: • find us on Facebook, where you’ll find video, photos and loads of other stuff. • send us a tweet: @theTotallyShow • for sales and advertising email sales@muddykneesmedia.com

When Fiorentina were finished – the Gori story

This week on Golazzo, Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti examine one of the most notorious owners in Serie A history – Cecchi Gori. An Oscar-winning producer turned eccentric football club supremo, life under Gori for La Viola was a rollercoaster from 1993 to 2002. Batistuta, Laudrup, Effenberg, Rui Costa – all players that Fiorentina fans could enjoy. They also got relegated and went out of business. Plenty going on in Serie A. We discuss the European draws for Juve and Napoli. And is Gianluca Vialli about to return to Sampdoria?

The little painter – Alessandro Del Piero

Jimbo is joined by Gab Marcotti to discuss one of Serie A’s greatest ever players, Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero. Originally thought of as the back-up to Baggio, 19 seasons later, Del Piero had established himself as a Juve icon, winning everything there was to win, including the World Cup with Italy. A humble man who went on a journey and inspired devotion in Turin, the star of this week’s Golazzo.

Tino tales - the astonishing Asprilla

Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti try to wrap their heads around the enigma that is Faustino Asprilla. The Colombian achieved legendary status at Parma, with silverware and sensational goals galore in the early 90s, before a move to Newcastle where narrative dictates his introduction cost them the Premier League title. But it’s Asprilla’s antics off the field that catch the eye as much as his talent on the pitch. We celebrate the dinosaur-dressing, gun-loving condom salesman in all his glory. In Serie A, everybody’s raving about Zaniolo, while there’s breaking news of Icardi at Inter. Plus what’s Anne Hathaway’s connection to Palermo? RUNNING ORDER: • PART 1a: Favourite Faustino memories & the move to Parma (02m 00s) • PART 1b: Parma 1992/93 (06m 30s) • PART 2a: Faustino rocks the flat-cap, family club (12m 15s) • PART 2b: Asprilla true or false (15m 00s) • PART 2c: Asprilla the underdog (19m 00s) • PART 3: Roma in the Champions League, plus Palermo, Milan and Icardi stripped of the Inter armband (23m 45s) GET IN TOUCH: • find us on Facebook, where you’ll find video, photos and loads of other stuff. • send us a tweet: @theTotallyShow • for sales and advertising email sales@muddykneesmedia.com

The notorious Moggi

Golazzo delves into the darker side of Serie A this week as Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti look at the life and times of Luciano Moggi. The scout turned stablemaster was at the heart of the Calciopoli scandal, alleged to involve match-fixing, a scandal that led to two titles being taken away from Juventus. Is Moggi one of Italian football’s legendary villains? Or is he merely the face of a much wider problem in Serie A at that time? Right now in Serie A, it’s a titanic race for the top 4 but is time almost up for Luciano Spalletti at Inter?

Shoe salesman turned tactical icon – the Sacchi story

Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti review one of the most influential managers of all time, the leader of the iconic Milan side of the late 80s – Arrigo Sacchi. His father owned a shoe factory but he was viewed as a visionary by Silvio Berlusconi. But by the time Sacchi became Italy manager, there were Italians who were hoping he would lose the World Cup Final. What made him so revered as a coach? And what made/makes him so unpopular as well? In the modern day, it’s goals galore in Serie A and a perfect start for Piatek at Milan. Plus Mihajlović moves in at Bologna as they bid bye-bye to Pippo Inzaghi. RUNNING ORDER: • PART 1: Arrigo Sacchi’s background and the route to Milan (01m 00s) • PART 2a: Sacchi’s tactical philosophy and managerial disciples (07m 50s) • PART 2b: Sacchi’s favourite Milan memories (19m 00s) • PART 2c: Sacchi’s departure from Milan (21m 00s) • PART 3a: Sacchi’s time as Italy manager (23m 45s) • PART 3b: A jaded Sacchi returns to club management (28m 45s) • PART 3c: Sacchi damages his popularity further post-management (30m 30s) • PART 4: Serie A round-up – a perfect start for Piatek as Bologna bid Inzaghi bye-bye (34m 00s) GET IN TOUCH: • find us on Facebook, where you’ll find video, photos and loads of other stuff. • send us a tweet: @theTotallyShow • for sales and advertising email sales@muddykneesmedia.com

Victory for Verona - Serie A's title miracle

This week on Golazzo, Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti travel back to 1985 to find Italy’s answer to Leicester. Hellas Verona became the only provincial side ever to win the Scudetto, with a team of Preben Elkjær, Hans-Peter Briegel and a collection of cast-offs and misfits. Elsewhere, Sassuolo show their smarts by selling Kevin-Prince Boateng to Barcelona. Plus we round up the domestic action where Quagliarella is chasing a Serie A record, Zapata is the hottest striker in the division and Ancelotti’s Napoli continue to impress.

Serie A so far and Welsh wizards of the past

After a winter break, Serie A is back this weekend so it’s the welcome return of Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti on Golazzo. With the second half about to kick off, we ask who will win the race for 4th, will Bologna sort themselves out and stay up, and how much does Ronaldo have left in the tank? Plus we study the signings being made in January. Muriel, Gabbiadini and, er, Holdsworth… The biggest deal of all this month could well be Aaron Ramsey’s move from Arsenal to Juventus. We look back at the legacies of the previous Welsh players to have donned the black and white in Turin – the gentle giant John Charles and the misquoted Ian Rush.

Contrary Vieri and heartbreak for Inter & Napoli

This week on Golazzo, Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti look back at Bobo – Christian Vieri – the grumpiest striker in Serie A. Currently enjoying life as a DJ, and having admitted he would have been happier playing cricket in his former home of Australia, Vieri wasn’t exactly a bad footballer. One of Italy’s all-time great strikers and a top scorer in Serie A and La Liga. Bobo liked to score on and off the pitch but ended his career living with his mother. He made his way through plenty of clubs. 9 in 9 years to be exact. And heaven knows how many nightclubs. Elsewhere, it was a heart-breaking week for Napoli and Inter who were both eliminated from the Champions League by a wafer-thin margin. It was a wild weekend in Italy with dramatic finishes while Juventus are enjoying the best start in Serie A history. Plus Prandelli is the latest manager to take on the chalice at Genoa.

Sackings & sexual conquests – Zamparini’s Palermo

With the announcement that Maurizio Zamparini has sold Palermo to a consortium involving David Platt, the panel of Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti look back at Zamparini’s time in Sicily. We bring you the whole story. From Vasquez to Viagra. It’s the story that includes over a thousand sexual conquests and Jimbo’s favourite goal in Serie A history. The story of the man who found a kindred spirit in Kyle Lafferty. In an extremely competitive field, Zamparini is a record-breaker when it comes to owners dismissing managers in Italy. 45 sackings in 16 years will do that. And it was a golden age on the field, starring the likes of Cavani, Pastore, Dybala, Grosso, Toni. The list went on, as Palermo were regulars on the European scene. In Serie A, we look ahead to what could be a Friday night thriller between Juventus and Inter. And while Gennaro Gattuso continues to defy expectations as a manager, Pippo Inzaghi fails to meet them. RUNNING ORDER: • PART 1: Zamparini sells Palermo to David Platt (01m 00s) • PART 2: Zamparini sells Venezia to buy Palermo in 2002 (05m 30s) • PART 3a: Palermo promoted to Serie A in 2004 – the great players they had and the vast quantity of managers (10m 30s) • PART 3b: Zamparini moves into politics – the pitchfork movement (17m 30s) • PART 3c: The second great Palermo side of 2010-11 (20m 00s) • PART 3d: Zamparini’s active sex life (25m 45s) • PART 4: Juventus v Inter preview and a look back at last weekend’s Serie A action (27m 45s) GET IN TOUCH: • find us on Facebook, where you’ll find video, photos and loads of other stuff. • send us a tweet: @theTotallyShow • for sales and advertising email sales@muddykneesmedia.com

Gigi Lentini – the most expensive player in the world

This week on Golazzo, Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti look back to a time when it was always sunny in Filadelfia. Gigi Lentini took Torino to new heights, including the UEFA Cup Final, and ended up in a transfer tug of war between Milan and Juventus in the summer of 1992\. Lentini took Silvio Berlusconi’s helicopter to the San Siro for a world record fee. £13 million was so astronomical that it managed to offend the Pope. But his life was changed forever as he sped to visit Toto Schillaci’s wife in 1993 and wrote off his Porsche. It was also the end of his career at elite level, thanks to a combination of a coma and Capello. In the modern day, we review the action in Serie A where Chievo are no longer pointless and Milan manager Gattuso has angered the government. RUNNING ORDER: • PART 1: An introduction to Gigi Lentini – the teenage prodigy (01m 00s) • PART 2a: Torino in the early 90s – the team that reached the 1992 UEFA Cup Final (05m 00s) • PART 2b: Lentini signs for Milan for a world record fee (13m 00s) • PART 3a: Lentini’s car crash in 1993 (17m 40s) • PART 3b: Lentini returns to Torino in 1997 – Dorigo, Souness and a run-in with Materazzi (21m 30s) • PART 3c: Lentini’s legacy – a failure?

Lauding Luca Toni – the last great Italian striker

Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti this week salute Luca Toni. Not a lifeguard as some would have you believe but perhaps the last great Italian centre-forward. The big man was laying down outrageous goal scoring numbers before Ronaldo and Messi showed up. He was Serie A’s top scorer at the age of 29 and again at 38. Toni won the World Cup, the Golden Shoe and he scored a bundle for Bayern Munich, while also upsetting Louis Van Gaal and the Catholic Church. In short, he was so much more than the Italian Peter Crouch. Back in the present, the panel evaluate Italy’s striker search in finding the next Luca Toni. And speaking of strikers, will Milan’s injury crisis force them to call upon the Zlatan? Plus there’s what should be an emotional Genoa derby on the horizon this weekend.

When Ranieri was Roman – Claudio’s Serie A story

With news breaking of Claudio Ranieri being appointed as Fulham manager, Jimbo and James Horncastle take a trip down memory lane with the man who wrote the book on Ranieri – literally – Gab Marcotti. We look at Gentleman Claudio’s journey in Serie A. From how his Roma side took Jose Mourinho’s all-conquering Inter to the limit, to his engineering of the great escape at Parma, as well as helping restore Juve’s battered reputation. Speaking of Juventus, they win at Milan as we discuss ultras - those that have a social conscience and those that drive tanks over cars.

Preziosi and his Genoa scandals

This week on Golazzo, Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti look back on the life and times of Enrico Preziosi, one of Serie A’s most notorious owners. Preziosi was at the heart of Genoa’s biggest scandal in 2005 and is now trying to rewrite Genoa’s second biggest scandal some 80 years earlier. It’s a story involving match fixing and shootouts. And we don’t mean penalties. And there’s the matter of a manager passing away on live television. Plus we look back at last weekend’s Serie A action and ahead to Milan versus Juventus. Will Higuain haunt the Old Lady this weekend? And is Romagnoli the new Ramos?

Power, corruption and Sven – Cragnotti’s Lazio

Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti are back to discuss a man whose motto was ‘spend more than you earn.’ Sergio Cragnotti was seen as a man from the future, with very few knowing where he got his money from. But as president of Lazio, he ploughed record amounts of cash towards the pursuit of silverware. And he forced Roma fans to boycott milk. Cragnotti’s reign began in jail and ended…in jail He put together one of the most expensively assembled squads in history and then stole Sven-Goran Eriksson from under Blackburn’s noses and charged him with securing the title. We also analyse the latest action in Serie A, where Inter are the form team with six wins in a row. But Luciano Spalletti is still miserable.

5th May 2002 – the Inter bottlejob?

As Lazio prepare to host Inter at the Stadio Olimpico on Monday, Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti look back at a date that is burned into the brains of Inter fans around the world. With a first Serie A title in 13 years on the horizon, Inter entered the day top of the table and finished it 3rd. It was a day when Lazio fans were supporting Inter, hoping that Juventus wouldn’t be champions and desperate for rivals Roma not to retain their crown. But Ronaldo’s last game for the Nerazzurri ended in tears as Hector Cuper’s Inter conspired to grab defeat from the jaws of victory. Elsewhere, the panel look back at an impressive victory for the Old Lady at Old Trafford and how Jose Mourinho is being received in his former stomping ground of Italy right now. Plus James Horncastle has been to the Milan derby where Inter leave it late again. And former Italy manager Gian Piero Ventura rocks up at Chievo. Is it a match made in hell?

Cassano’s crazy career comes to an end

This week on Golazzo, we marvel at the player who has announced his retirement from football (for the third time), the one and only Antonio Cassano. The boy from Bari who loved football but probably not as much as he loved sex and sugar. Cassano packed more into his career than most – including heart surgery and over 700 women. Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti reminisce about a man who says if he made the most of his talent, he wouldn’t be on planet Earth right now. Elsewhere, Italy finally win a game as they beat Poland in the Nations League. The panel look at a hugely encouraging result, performance and selection from Roberto Mancini. And of course, we pay tribute to the voice of Italian football in the UK, the legend that passed away earlier this week, Mr Peter Brackley.

Italy at Italia 90

For many, it was the World Cup of Gazza, Higuita and Milla. But for Italy, it was the one that got away. Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti look back at the iconic Italia 90 and what it meant to the host nation. We reveal the staggering cost of staging the tournament and for how long Italy as a country were counting that cost. It was the World Cup that built broadcasting careers and it was the World Cup that a glamorous-looking Italian side were supposed to win Baggio broke out, Schillaci scored a lot and Italy recruited an army of fans including Madonna. But it was Maradona who helped turn Italians against their own team as Argentina broke the host nation’s hearts in the semi-final. Fast-forwarding to the present day, we take a look at Roberto Mancini’s current Italy squad and ask whether or not Mancini understands the point of the Nations League. RUNNING ORDER: • PART 1: Italy prepare to host the World Cup at great expense (02m 45s) • PART 2a: Glamorous Italy enter the tournament as favourites (08m 50s) • PART 2b: Roberto Baggio breaks out (13m 45s) • PART 3a: Italy negotiate the group stage (16m 10s) • PART 3b: Gab Marcotti attends Italy v Uruguay (18m 10s) • PART 3c: The Toto Schillaci phenomenon (20m 25s) • PART 4a: Semi-final heartache against Maradona’s Argentina (22m 45s) • PART 4b: The immediate fall-out for Italian football (30m 30s) • PART 5: Mancini’s Italy in Nations League action (36m 20s) GET IN TOUCH: • find us on Facebook, where you’ll find video, photos and loads of other stuff. • send us a tweet: @theTotallyShow • for sales and advertising email sales@muddykneesmedia.com

Alvaro Recoba – waster or wunderkind?

Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti are chatting about El Chino this week on the Totally Italian Football Show. In a team containing Ronaldo, Zamorano and Djorkaeff, Uruguayan striker Alvaro Recoba was the man who Inter owner Massimo Moratti described as ‘quite simply football’ Or to look at it from a less favourable point of view, was Recoba the biggest underachiever in the history of Serie A? He hated training but he loved to score direct from corners. It’s a story that features fishing, Pro Evo and Princess Diana. Elsewhere, we discuss the implications of Juventus CEO Beppe Marotta’s sudden departure and the impact it could have on Serie A’s winning machine.

Perugia pandemonium - a Golazzo Gaucci special

Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gabriele Marcotti examine the life and times of former Perugia owner Luciano Gaucci. Gaucci shot to worldwide prominence after being reported to have sacked Perugia’s South Korean World Cup hero Ahn Jung-Hwan for knocking Italy out of the World Cup in 2002. He dined at the White House, hired a Gadaffi, gave a referee a racehorse and generally made Massimo Cellino look like Daniel Levy.

Chievo – when the good guys go bad

Jimbo and James Horncastle take another trip down memory lane on this week’s Golazzo. With Chievo deducted 3 points for falsifying acccounts, we look back at the time when they were everyone’s second favourite team in Italy. A newly promoted Chievo team, managed by a former photocopier salesman, took Serie A by storm in 2001/02, setting the early pace in the title race before narrowly missing out on Champions League qualification. This is the incredible tale of flying donkeys, stolen identity and Christmas cake. And great chips. Where did it all go wrong? Gab Marcotti also analyses the move of chief executive Ivan Gazidis from Arsenal to AC Milan and what he’ll be able to achieve at San Siro. Plus we discuss an incredible comeback in the Champions League from the usually Spursy Inter against….er, Spurs.

Sampdoria's '91 Scudetto and a classic Inter comeback

Milan-Arsenal ’95 and remembering Davide Astori

We kick off Golazzo by paying tribute to Fiorentina captain and Italy international Davide Astori, who died suddenly last weekend.  For the rest of the show Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gabriele Marcotti turn the clock back to February 1995 and the second leg of the European Super Cup, with Arsenal taking on Milan at San Siro.

The good, the bad and the Beppe

Giuseppe Signori is the star of the show this week as Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gabriele Marcotti look back at the career of one of the finest Italian strikers of all time.  But Beppe Gol’s route to the top was less than straight forward. Discarded by Inter for being too small, he spent seven years mooching around Serie B and C before finding his feet upfront for Foggia and then Lazio.  Here, we discuss his Lazio debut in 1992, his amazing penalty technique and the lifetime ban hanging over his head that threatens to overshadow his legacy.    RUNNING ORDER: • PART 1a: Signori’s Lazio debut: Sampdoria 3 - 3 Lazio, 6 September 1992 (01m 30s) • PART 1b: Beppe on penalties; being popular with the Ultras (06m 20s)  • PART 1c: A life ban from football; his legacy on the pitch (11m 40s) • PART 1d: Ivano Bonetti, a plate of chicken, and other players from Samp ’92 (21m 40s) • PART 2: The Milan derby and a huge weekend in Serie A (26m 30s) PARISH NOTICES • want to get your shave on with [**Harry’s**?  Head here](http://try.harrys.com/en/gb/lp-redeem/?utm_medium=sponsorship-podcast&utm_source=Golazzo%20Totally%20Italian%20Football&utm_campaign&utm_content=-Jan18_tps-395_trial&name=Golazzo%20Podcast%20listeners).
