But there is plenty of interesting stuff going on away from the usual names suc as the re-emergence of Parma, the continuing growth of Sassuolo and the return of SPAL after years in the wilderness and recent bankruptcy
Yeah it's a real shame. For me, maybe because of the era I grew up in, Serie A is still the league with the most in-depth 'name' value. But these days Juventus are just miles ahead of the rest. And yet they still haven't managed to win the Champions League in this recent era
