Unless you've been living under a rock, THE story in Italian football is that Napoli captain, hometown hero, "Bandiera" Lorenzo Insigne is rumored to accept the offer from MLS side Toronto FC for a massive amount of money.  Toronto's very own Marco "Kubani" d'Onofrio comes in to address these rumors, as he returns for an edition of "Kubani's Korner". Marco, having had close ties to TFC and being a lifelong Napoli supporter, is without question, the best person to hear from when it comes to this topic.  The passion he has for BOTH Napoli and TFC is evident here, and we'd love your feedback so get at us on our socials and tell us what you think!

Raffa and Ken are back to wrap up coverage of Napoli's tough loss to Empoli in the 17th match of the season on Sunday, and also the big win prior to that last Thursday v Leicester City.  Then we talk about the big news that we learned earlier today that Napoli has drawn Barcelona in the Europa League Knockout Playoff Round.  That, and we answer lots of your questions.

Napoli lose their 2nd match of the Serie A season 3-2 at home to Alatanta in a valiant effort.  No doubt one of the most hard fought, see saw matches this season.  There is only one person able enough to help Raffa break it all down and that is Joe Fischetti of the Forza Napoli Calcio Podcast.   We then chat about the crucial upcoming UEL Matchday 6 fixture with Leicester City at the Maradona with LOTS of outcomes possible.  Then next week, again in Naples, it's Napoli-Empoli in a tough, must win situation as the week after that is the match we've all been waiting for against Milan at the San Siro.  We sneak in a Beast Of The Match right at the end.  This is a fun one you dont want to miss!

Napoli, on the heals of the massive win v Lazio, travelled to Emilio-Romagna to face Sassuolo at the Mapei.  Unfortunately, Napoli squandered a 2-0 lead late and the match ended 2-2. Milan, Inter and Atalanta win, so the lead is cut dramatically and 1-4 are now separated by 5 points.  Raffa in the house to Rant all about it.

Big time statement for Napoli where we defeat Lazio 4-0 at the Maradona on a night we celebrate the life of Diego Armando Maradona one year after his untimely passing. In to give a Lazio persepctive is Shawn McIntosh of Lazio Lounge and The Laziale, as we cover Frenemies in a special duel episode.  Napoli take sole possession of first place, while Sarri returns to Fuorigrotta in a forgettable night for his biancocelesti. We also talk a little Italian National team and, of course, crown this round's "Beast of the Match"

Enjoy and #ForzaNapoliSempre
Today is the one year anniversary of the passing of Diego Armando Maradona.  We at FFV have decided to re-release this memorable episode to remember the #D10S of football! 
 
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 discusses our first run of consecutive losses in the season, second to Spartak 2-1 in the Europa League Matchday 5.  This leaves Group C wide open again, and now Napoli must meet Leicester City on the final matchday at the Maradona on December 9th and needs a result to advance.  We chat about the match, Spalletti's words after and we take comments from the live chat.

Raffa's guest this week comes all the way from India.  His name is Hanu and he is in charge of the Spartak Moscow English Twitter account.  We talk about how he got the gig, what he does for them and how being the Twitter guy has turned him into a big fan of Spartak.  Hanu's work has been revered as of late with his light hearted banter and caught the attention of a lot of people in the industry, so it's an extra pleasure for him to come on with us. Oh...we talk about the upcoming Matchday 5 encounter in Russia as well, #SpartakNapoli. Don't miss this one!

In this episode, Raffa and Frenemies returns with our guest Rick Hough, the author of "Notes From Verona".  Here, we chat up about a very in form Verona side, manager Igor Tudor's impact on their squad and red hot Giovanni Simeone, who's 8 goals (4 v Lazio and 2 v Juve in their last 3 matches) is already a team best over the last 3 seasons.

Rick is an author from Glasgow who moved to Verona.  His book describes Verona during lockdown as covid-19 hit Italy extremely hard.  You can find his book here: https://www.amazon.com/Notes-Verona-Reflections-family-locked-down-ebook/dp/B08BQ7VVXW

Napoli win their 2nd straight Europa League match v Legia 4-1 and Raffa Rispo has you covered with all the happenings and who won Beast Of The Match.

With Leicester City and Spartak ending 1-1, Napoli take the lead in Group C:

Napoli 7

Legia 6

Leicester 5

Spartak 4

Napoli can win the group in Matchday 5 with a win vs Spartak on Wed, Nov 24, AND a LCFC-Legia draw on the 25th.  The partenopei now go back to the Maradona for a showdown for redemption with a red hot Giovanni Simeone and Hellas Verona, before the final international break of 2021.

 

We realized while posting this episode that we never posted the Matchday 3 Post Match Live for the 3-0 win at home v Legia.  You can find that episode on Raff N Raff Rant Youtube page.  Here is the link to that episode: https://youtu.be/phaVBupv6HI
