Also, we have to address it, ADL and his comments. Out of line and out of touch…but was it all totally wrong?

Raffa & The Biz are back and with the Serie A season ready to kick off in 2 weeks, SSC Napoli are still working hard in the Summer Mercato. Is ADL's approach to this rebuild better off for Napoli? Will Luciano Spalletti have the Partenopei ready for battle with the additions of Kim Min-Jae, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. Leo Ostigard? Will Victor Osimhen, Chucky Lozano and Piotr Zielinski be difference makers this season? Let's RANT!

In this episode of the Rant, Raffa & The Bizz discuss the official departure of Dries Mertens, the Napoli all-time leading scorer.  This marks the end of an era with three captains gone in Mertens and in Lorenzo Insigne and Kalidou Koulibaly before him. Can Napoli fans recover?

Also, is Raff Bizz starting to change his tune about ADL? He gives his response to recent talks by the president. And can Raffa Rispo stay optimistic about this rebuild?

News, new drip/kit talk, and of course the mercato!

In the only English language Napoli podcast direct from the city, Henry and Michele are back from their holidays and dive straight into Dimaro reaction. Michele gives the città perspectives on the mercato comings and goings and gauges the mood of Naples ahead of the new season. There’s also time for conversations about gelato and which ex Napoli player is most fond of good times in night spots. A classic ITSOV mixture of the sublime and the ridiculous.

*** DISCLAIMER: Due to technical difficulties, we're posting this episode a week late, before Koulibaly's deal was announced.  This edition was Live on Monday, July 11, 2022***

 

In this episode, Raff Biz RETURNS to the airwaves and from his trip to Campania. We discuss his time there; Raff Rispo gives his opinion on what's happening with the transfer market and much more.

Raffa kicks off the 22/23 Season without The Bizz, as he is in the motherland, so we start with Carmine Guadagno, President of Napoli Club Toronto. Here, we talk all about the arrival of Lorenzo Insigne to Toronto and the clubs involvement, the moves Napoli made and have not made, players possibly leaving, and can Cristiano ROnaldo actually work out?

This week's episode is a game of two halves. Henry and Michele begin with a serious and nuanced discussion about ADL and why he remains so unpopular within the city. Then, our alternative season awards involve plenty of pasta, scooter journeys and imagined trips to Castel dell’Elmo with Ciro and Kat Mertens.

A very special episode of The Napoli Rant this week. We had an emphatic win at Spezia for the last matchday if Serie A. With nothing at stake either way, Napoli B defeated Spezia 3-0. However, we didn't mention it much, as this week we decided to take an in-depth look at the Top 4 UCL representatives for Italy.  The panel joining the Raff's, who obviously were representing Napoli, are as follows:

Representing Milan, the new Champions of Italy: Adreano Di Nardo of The Calcio Guys 

(@adreano_calcio || @TheCalcioGuys)

Representing Inter, Coppa Italia winners and 2nd Place: Alex Donno of Calcio Connection

(@AlexDonno || @CalcioConPod)

Representing Juventus, 4th Place and first season without a trophy since 2012: Cliff Esmiol, host of Stoppage Time on the All Juve Cast Network

(@CliffEsmiol || @AllJuveCast)

We each give our teams Beast of the Season, review our teams season, and play an exciting fantasy game we call "The Missing Piece", where each of us get to pick one player from one of the other top four teams that we think would have gotten our team over the scudetto hump, or that would help immensely in next seasons Champions League. We had a blast with these fine gentlemen, and we strongly encourage our viewers and listeners to check out their respective platforms...yes even Cliff! (We love you, amico).

Michele and Henry are joined by Ken Cioffredi this week and look back at the season which came to a close with a 3-0 win over Spezia. They explore the feelings of the città over the course of a season which featured many familiar frustrations. Occasional moments of end of term giddiness also punctuate this episode as the team look ahead to next season!
 
 
 
 
 
 

WELCOME TO NAPOLI, DR. BELL!!!

 

In this special episode Michele interviews Henry for a change as they talk about meeting in person for the first time last Sunday! Please enjoy the "In Stadium" perspective of the historic moment in the club as Lorenzo Insigne and Faouzi Ghoulam said goodbye to the home fans. Henry opens up about the experience of being a long distance Napoli fan and coming to the stadium for the first time. Much emotion all round! We'd say Henry's Napoli experience was BELLissima!!! ;)

In this edition of The Napoli Rant, we say goodbye to our hometown boy Lorenzo Insigne.  "Lorenzinho" "Lorenzo il Magnifico" "Capitano". We look back at Insigne's finest moments, we remember what he meant to us and we wish him well as he moves on to Toronto FC.  OH YEAH...THERE WAS A MATCH TOO!!!

Napoli defeat Genoa 3-0 at the Maradona, a match that many of our great friends attended.  Osimhen scored an emphatic header, Insigne got himself on the scoresheet in his final match, and Lobotka went coast to coast and scored his first Serie A goal. Oh, and we locked up 3rd, finished over Juventus for the first time in 11 seasons, and we relegated Genoa in the process.  Could our scugnizzo write a better ending? I think not

We also briefly look at the final weekend in Serie A with the scudetto on the line and relegation at stake, we look at Serie B promoted teams and promotion playoff, and a special mention of a former Napoli player making waves in the Serie B relegation play-out (HINT: this SUPER player got on his BIKE for this one)!

Where we lost the scudetto

Napoli Twitter beef

Insigne leaving

New Captain...is it what we needed all along?

What do we need in the summer?

Fans protests: Deserved? Or way too much?

LOYALTY

In our tenth show, Henry and Michele explore the emotions in the city surrounding Lorenzo Insigne’s upcoming farewell in Napoli’s last home game of the season. Michele gives his typically forthright views on the exit, we share our favourite memories of Lorenzo and also take a look what can be learned for the future from the Torino game.
