I believe he was missing from the Euro 1968 squad. Coincidence? I am thinking not.

Zambrotta Chiellini Barzagli/Panucci Grosso

No Pippo = Bad Tournament for Italy as well.

Euro 2000 - Finals
WC 2002 - At least got through to the knockouts
Euro 2004 no Pippo - f*cked tournament
WC 2006 - Winners
Euro 2008 no Pippo - f*cked so far

Works the same for Milan,

Milan - Juventus (Manchester) Pippo starts - Milan win the UCL
Milan - Liverpool (Istanbul) Pippo in the stands - Milan lose the UCL
Milan - Liverpool (Athens) Pippo starts and scores - Milan win the UCL

Every tournament Simone Barone hasn't been called for, Italy failed to win.

Coincidence? I think not.

Every time the tournament is held in a place that doesn't begin with an I, F, G or S....we screw up.

Maybe if the tournament were held solely in Switzerland we'd have a chance....but not Austria and Switzerland.

pirri, author of most stupidest threads.... EVER !

anyhow, it is however, strange that italy always perform better in a world cup, comparing to a european cup (except 68 and 2000 , that is ;) )

I think it sort of shows that Italy has a good reason to expect success when the Azzurri is not managed by incompetent idiots who call up players like Panucci.

Yes because calling Barone and Zaccardo was so much smarter than calling Panucci...

Every single one of those tournos had way worse call ups then Panucci, even if he aint good by any means.

I mean Corradi 4 years ago over Gila who was chosen best italian player of the season (if you are chosen such, shouldnt you automatically be in the NT?). Zaccardo and Barone 2 years ago, and the 2000 team wasnt all blitz and flair to say the least.

We dont have to imagine, it cant worse then Barzagli last night, Zaccardo would be as bad at most.
