In this special edition mid-week episode, Raffa and the Biz (one of Ralph's new nicknames) bring in calcio journalist Nima Tavallaey of Sempre Inter and The Italian Football Podcast to preview this Sunday's showdown at the Maradona, Napoli-Inter.  We have a great chat about Conte and what he's done, Conte vs Sarri, can Napoli reach top 4, and what is up with Kappa today, as Napoli introduce a 5th kit of the season.  We also chat Inter's new digs and other great kits in history! So much fun!

Be sure to tune in live to the Raff N Raff RaNt on Facebook, Youtube or Twitter about 15 minutes before Napoli-Inter this Sunday for our first ever LIVE in studio pre-match, halftime and post-match analysis as we're joined by our buddy, Joe Fischetti of the Forza Napoli Calcio Podcast!

In this epidose, Raffa and Ralph break down Gattuso and each Napoli players season so far in the style of analyzing stocks.  What players stock has risen or fallen? Should we hold or sell? Who is a Blue Chip stock? Lots of hot takes and obvious takes too.  The viewers chime in too which brings some good comedy relief. We also chat about Napoli getting back on track with an away 2-0 win over Sampdoria at the weekend, after losing to Juventus last week. We also read results of a Twitter poll we put out asking what's better, Conte style/win a scudetto, or Sarriball/attractive football?

Look for a special edition RaNt later this week with special guest, Nima Tavalley of Italian Football Podcast and Sempre Inter, as we preview a very big match vs the new and improved, and next Scudetto winners, Inter Milano at the Maradona this Sunday! HUGE weekend with BIG Champions League implications so don't miss that!

With Napoli and the rest of club football on break, it's international football time again.  In our 2nd installment of NazioNapoli, Raff N Raff bring us a very special guest in Rutgers University alum, former quarterback and captain of the Rutgers Football (American) Team and BIG TIME Napoli and Italia fan, Giovanni Rescigno. 

The former Rutgers #17 (a nod to Hamsik) is currently playing in the IFL - Italian Football League with Rhinos Milano, and we get a great lesson in all things Italian gridiron. Then, we get to business about our Napoli ragazzi with their national teams, focusing heavily on Italy's two World Cup 2022 Qualifying wins. One home to Northern Ireland and the other an historic away win vs. Bulgaria, both 2-0 wins. 

Check back with us later this week as we bring a 2nd NazioNapoli to round out Italy's final qualifer of the break, a home fixture against Lithuania, as well as round up all the other partenopei with their nation, and look ahead to Napoli hosting Crotone Saturday April 3 and then the BIG matchday 3 with Juventus FINALLY coming up on Wednesday, April 7!

 

You can catch our new buddy Giovanni Rescigno on Twitter @G_Rescigno17.

Raffa, in our last episode, mentions that if it ain't broke, don't fix it when it came to who starts vs Roma, Mertens or Osimhen! Well, Dries Mertens gets Serie A goals 99 and 100 in our road win vs Roma today and Napoli escape "Hell Week" with ALL 6 POINTS!

 

This is the Raff N Raff Post Match Live Rant, immediately following our big Derby Del Sole win today.  Enjoy!!!

 

Don't forget, Napoli now get a rest for the start of FIFA World Cup qualifying and the UEFA U21 European Championship Group Stage and we'll be right here with our next installments of NAZIONAPOLI, so check back with us soon!

Hey tifosi! Hope you had a happy holidays and a happy new year.  A new year brings new beginnings and for us, we announce a new project by Raffa and the newest member of Far From Vesuvius, Ralph Bizzarro.  Together, they have created what is currently called "The Raff N Raff Rant' (will be shortened to "The RaNt"), the hottest new innovative and INTERACTIVE live Napoli show on YouTube, Facebook Live and Twitter via Periscope.  Fans can message us live and very soon, will be able to call in and chat with the boys!  With so much going on within the FFV family, we've decided to bring the action to the podcast waves for those who can't watch live.  Once a week, we discuss and literally rant on the hottest and latest topics in and around Fuorigrotta, but thats not all, as we will provide an additional post-match report after every match ensuring content more than once a week! If you can, check us out live, but if you can't, right here is where to be for all the fun!

 

This weeks RaNt topics:

Player Profile - Mattia Zaccagni

Milik Melee

Empoli & The Coppa Italia

We also touch on Gattuso, rotation, the loss to Spezia and the win over Udinese.

 

We hope you enjoy and FORZA NAPOLI SEMPRE!!!

FFV will be going over our glory era with a new series of podcasts called "The Maradona Era Chronicle". We will be reviewing each season of Maradona's time at Napoli from his signing from Barcelona in 1984, until his departure in 1991.
 
During the time between our last episode and this one, we lost Diego Armando Maradona to a heart attack at age 60.  His death was sudden and our hearts were broken. Before Maradona's passing, we began plans to resume the series and we decided 88/89 was so big, we had to record it in two parts. Little did we know, this would turn into a eulogy for the greatest of all time, the God of football himself.   

 
Here, we review our first and only Eurpoean trophy.  It was the culmination of all the hard work and passion Diego put in to this club, Napoli. What better way to honor him than for Frank @franksidekick and Raffa @RaffaNapoli83 to include in this episode their thoughts on what he meant to them.  We hope you enjoy this extra special edition of the Maradona Era Chronicles!
Rest In Peace, Diego! AD10S!
Forza Napoli Sempre!

Raffa brings us a new series of podcasts called NazioNapoli, which aims to follow our Napoli boys on their national team journeys.  We take a deep look at all the proud moments , appearances, goals, assists, saves, and even the ugly side of the international break like bad performances and injuries.  Where ever our partenopei go, from Insigne with Italy and "Chooky" at Mexico, to Rrahmani in Kosovo... there we are!

For the inaugural episode, Raffa sits down with Calcio Napoli Club USA Facebook group founder, Ralph Bizzarro, for his first appearance with us here at FFV! We chat Euro 2020(21) qualifying, Nations League, AFCON qualiying, CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying and, of course, the meaningless friendlies that have no business taking place during Covid-19! We hope you enjoy this episode, because you wont get Episode 2 until March 2021! #ForzaNapoliSempre
