    Lol….quality……So much passion in Naples. Once you play for Napoli you are part of ”the family”. Love it.

    Great line about the passive-aggressive mascots in England,lol…Indicative of the pointless anger in kids in England these days,haha.

    Trust me Neopolitans kiss everyone! Even the most macho ones. The comorra looking owner of my hostel there gave everyone a goodbye smacker other than me, the awkward Englishman.

    Worked, dinnit? Lavezzi scored 2 two goals in the win.

    Aww, that was adorable. Judging by Lavezzi and Gargano reactions I’d say they were pleasantly surprised. ^^

    That very well may have made my day. Chris’ commentary on every single story always makes it just that little bit better.
