    Should get some traction on this one, a lot of Roma fans here! Oh, and maybe an Inter here or there. As for me...

    Serie A Team: Juventus

    Chap, I don't know how closely you follow the team....but its going to be a lot of fun watching Giovinco this year. Kid scored an absolute blast from about 25 out in the Olympic match against Honduras. I would really love them to be able to get a better left back, but it's not looking very likely right now.

    I would love to follow them closely, if I can, but it's tough. Right now, of the 4 European teams I chose to follow, it looks like Arsenal will be the most accessible, since FSC plays a lot of EPL. Gol plays a bunch of Barca, so I hope to have some La Liga stuff to watch too. My only worry is Serie A and Bundesliga.

    They show Bundesliga games on Gol TV and Serie A is on FSC.

    Yup, I was able to watch all but 3 Juventus games last year on FSC. Usually they are all live on Saturday and Sunady morning as well. It was tough 2 years ago when they were down in B and I couldn't watch any games. If you dont get FSC let me know and I can shoot you a couple links to look at to find streams of the Juventus games during the season.

    Nah, I got them. The only channel I don't get is Setanta, and I understand between FSC and Setanta, almost every EPL game gets televised.

    I've already set up my TIVO to record everything for my 4 teams, so I've already seen some good matches from last season--for 3 of my 4 teams (Bayern Munich hasn't gotten a lot of play this summer).

    No thread for French Soccer?

    I'll admit I've only watched French teams play during UEFA Cup or Champions League but with Freddy Adu there I'll be watching Monaco whenever I get the chance.

    Juve with a solid 4-0 victory for their opening match in Champions League qualifying. Great goal by Del Piero

    Right about the :38 mark.

    Juve's going to be pretty good this year. Aren't they playing Inter really early in the season? Talk about a huge game...

    I am excited about them this year. If Claudio Ranieri will take some chances and play a few games with 3 up top I think this team could be scary with DP-Trez-Amauri up there. Its gonna be fun though, hopefully Giovinco will develop into the player the world thinks he will be.

    As far as Inter its looking like we actually don't play them till later in the season,

    I must have confused it with Fiorentina in the opener.
