Guest post: The poetry of the Italian football system

I have written a detailed article for David Bevan over at The Seventy Two, it is part of a series of articles by some great writers covering the lower league structures and nuances in countries across the world.

The Seventy Two is an independent website offering opinion on the Football League. This means an in-depth look at individual clubs in the Championship, League One and League Two instead of the strong Premier League focus that can be found on many English football sites.

Please go and give it 10 minutes of your time, I hope you’ll enjoy it.
