Leonardo Bonucci Is A Big Dumb Idiot and Why I Can't Stand Italians(occer)

f3e7b16504bbaf2b7f3c80c49bb80ac1.gif

Let me start out by saying I do not hate Italians. Italian mobster movies (Goodfellas, Casino, Once Upon A Time In America) are my shit. Gnocchi is in my top 5 dishes. Without Italian painters we would have never got the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles so to me I owe a lot to Italians including pizza. I will say I am not the biggest fan of them and it’s mostly from personal experience. (This is strictly for Italian born Italians not Italian Americans and your shitty gabagool RIP Tony)

When I studied abroad (queue privileged comments) my least favorite city was Venice for several reasons: 1. The canals are filled with trash and the streets are very dirty. 2. The city is a goddamn maze and you don’t know where the hell you are at all times. 3. The romanticism of the city wears off after like five minutes. 4. Finally, the people.

Now I will not group together all Italians with this description but… I WILL LAY DOWN MY COMPLAINTS. From my time in the Italian cities of Venice, Rome, and Genoa I experienced some of the rudest and loudest people in my life. Like loud for the sake of being loud which I can’t stand. Shouting over you to show off their MACHISMO which again who gives a shit it’s 2019 dude. Plus the way they dismissed anything the girls in our group had to say and look down upon them I was definitely not a fan of.

I state all this so people understand my biases and that I do not, in fact, hate Italians. I just find them rather annoying people who make great food. Their soccer is to be less desired though.

Italian soccer was once a powerhouse that dominated Europe especially with the prime of AC Milan that included the likes of Maldini, Pirlo, Kaka, Nesta, and so on. The decline seemed to come after Inter’s treble with Mourinho because since then one team has had a monopoly on the league: Juventus.

So for starters, I can’t stand a league where it’s been dominated by the same team over a decade and I know what’s going to happen at the end of the season. There’s no mystery or draw for me personally. Like the title race never seems that close so because of that I’m out on that regards.

Second, they pride themselves on playing defensive soccer which is B O R I N G. I’m one of the few who can enjoy a 0-0 defensive battle between two top clubs but not every week are you high? I’m here for action baby and your league just don’t got it chief. (Side note: Do people still say this ain’t it chief? Asking for a friend)

The third and final reason is the prevalent racism in Series A and no one in Italy seems to care, especially Leonardo Bonucci.

Now for context, the recent match of Juventus vs. Cagliari was a heated venture which included the Cagliari fans shouting monkey chants at the black players for the entirety of the match. I don’t understand people being racist for starters but monkey chants? You look like a childish idiot whose brain hasn’t been fully developed like your Wayne Rooney after a few drinks at an airport.

After suffering this abuse for over an hour, Juventus youngster Moise Kean scores a goal in the 85th minute and celebrates in front of Cagliari fans as a major fuck you for being racist pricks. This is what Raheem Sterling did against Montenegro when he faced racial abuse and I find it to be an amazing way to deal with this scum. Just rub it in their putrid faces.

So after the match this is what Juventus teammate and Italian international Leonardo Bonucci had to say:

ARE YOU SERIOUS??? This some next level Trump, “There’s good people on both sides” bullshit. Like how can you say your player is partly to blame? Honestly Moise Kean should have jumped into the crowd Eric Cantona style and kicked the living shit out of every last one of them. What he did was rather tame to be honest. Claiming that he enraged the fans to the point of racist chants is laugh out loud funny stuff man.

Thankfully many black players have come to back their guy up such as Raheem Sterling, Paul Pogba, Patrice Evra, and my favorite Ian Wright who left a nice comment on Bonucci’s instagram ;)

Bonucci has since backtracked his statements in his instagram story of all places and condemned racism as he should have done from the beginning but the damage is done idiot.

Bonucci’s original comments is the type of rhetoric that continues the ongoing allowance of racism in Italy and all leagues around the world. I pray that he’s really thought about how much of a big dumb idiot he truly is and tries to pull some good out of this shit canoli of a situation. Until you fix yourself on the racist front Series A all I have to say is:

Former Skinhead Hardo From Florida Wants To Bring Hooliganism To The US

Jesus H just look at this guy

dude.PNG

VICE UK - “The US doesn't have great form when it comes to football hooliganism. Besides, of course, American journalist Bill Buford's Among the Thugs – arguably the definitive book on the topic – the first things that come to mind are: Green Street, the Little Britain sketch of a hooligan movie; and the time those MLS fans threw rubbish bags at each other in New York.

Still, this hasn't deterred Florida-based Derek "Diablo" Alvarez from founding the "Miami Casuals" and posting WWE-style call-outs of British hooligan firms on social media. His best-known video features him, dressed in casuals clothing, goading Millwall's firm with the words: "You want to act like the hardest gang in the whole world, brother? How come you ain't never come down to Miami or South Florida?"

Strange as it might seem, Alvarez has managed to gain respect from some within the UK hooligan community for his passion and enthusiasm for terrace culture and all things football violence-related.”

Okay before I begin can we just take a minute to admire how much of a douchebag this guy really is.

Wow I thought my tattoos were bad.

Vice, who used to do great news, decided to do a piece about this Floridian man who wants to bring hooliganism to the United States. I really thought this was an Onion article guys I swear. I can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard at something so series, probably the memes about Marcos Alonso’s lawyer tbh.

I don’t think this guy truly understands that hooliganism or violence is never the answer to increasing soccer popularity in America, let alone solving anything. I mean come on dude we just had MLK day on Monday, well actually he is a former skinhead so that probably wouldn’t matter that much to him. Does this guy not understand that hooliganism has been essentially outlawed in the U.K. and if you are caught being apart of these firms you get a lifetime ban from the club. I would assume not.

Let me just lay out my favorite parts of this article which were L A U G H O U T L O U D funny.

  1. The fact that he is from Florida.

  2. His nickname or whatever is “Diablo”. GOD HE’S SO HARD.

  3. The fact that he is calling out real hooligan firms like Millwall and expecting them to fly all the way to the putrid state which is Florida to fight him and his “gang”

  4. He prefers “forest fighting” to “pub fighting”. okay….

  5. HE HAS A HOOLIGAN COOKING SHOW. WHAT. HAHAHAHA
