Remembering The Days Of Waking Up To Watch Football Italia Every Saturday
When anyone talks about the 1990s or early 2000s, it's always the perfect time to feel nostalgic about something. With that being said, it's time to bring up Football Italia.
Feel a little bit nostalgic? We certainly do!
For any diehard football fan, this was the stuff that Saturday mornings were made for -- and it's a crying shame that it is no longer a tradition for so many people.
Everyone loved to watch a bit of Premier League action, but it was the perfect time to catch up on everything that happened in Serie A.
Oh, and let's not forget that the Italian league was thriving with a ton of world-class talent, including the likes of Zinedine Zidane at Juventus, an up-and-coming Gianluigi Buffon at Parma and the legendary Ronaldo at Inter Milan.
That's only a few names to bring up, especially as we could be here for a while if we had to list them away.
From 1992 to 2002, Channel 4 was the home of Football Italia. Sure, it moved to other channels and ran up until 2008 -- the last season was called Football Italiano -- but fans felt that striking blow to the heart when the show ended.
Imagine if it was still running now, though? The Italian league might not be at the same height that it once was, but there's some promising talent that people always keep their eye out for.
Let's remember, folks, that Cristiano Ronaldo plays in Serie A now, so Saturday mornings would have been complete if we could wake up to Football Italia.
Netflix, please revive Football Italia. You're our only hope!
Channel 4 could make a bid for the rights to Champions League coverage. If Football Italia intro is anything to go by, it should be great. pic.twitter.com/MUZSNeNKfa- Paddy Power (@paddypower) 21 February 2017
