TAR admitted Entella to serie B. Entella might be the first Italian club to play games in serie C and then in serie B in the same season. It's the new episode of a crazy season started with 19 clubs who chose to start the season in contempt of the rules and with the support of the same Lega serie B.

Was there really no chance of carrying out this process before starting the games?

Sometimes the messy organization of Italian football just reaches unimaginable heights.

TAR's decisions must be enforced and according to TAR serie B must have 22 clubs. No surprise, these are the rules and TAR just remind the fools who started a 19-club serie B what are the rules. Now it will be interesting to see how serie B will be brought to 22 clubs, what clubs will be chosen, since there are more than three pretending to be admitted back to serie B, and what will happen with the fixtures.

Brescia have a young and quite interesting team. Unless all their players is taken up by bigger clubs.

Lecce back too.

Interestingly enough for me personally, the coaches of Brescia (Corini) and Lecce (Liverani) were both amongst my favourite central midfielders in Serie A in their playing days. Both had good football brains.

The current season will be remember as one of the worst from the point of view of the application of rules.
At the beginning of the season 19 clubs decided to start the season, no matter whether the rules were that the participants had to be 22 and 6 clubs had titles for the repechage. Now Palermo, third at the end of the season, has been excluded from promotion playoffs and relegated to serie C due to financial irregularities and for some reason the Lega serie B has decided that the relegation playoff between Salernitana and Foggia should not be played anymore and Foggia had to go to serie C, but Foggia appealed to TAR and TAR obviously agreed with Foggia that the relegation playoff had to be played.

And in the end maybe both will be serie B as they are 22 teams again.

In the meanwhile Cittadella is the first finalist of the serie B playoffs after defeating Benevento 3-0 at Vigorito. Unpredictable, after the win (2-1) of Benevento at Tombolato. Pescara - Hellas Verona will tell us the second finalist (0-0 in the first leg at Bentegodi).

You know what? I fear that Cittadella will gain the promotion to serie B. In the regular season Hellas defeated Cittadella at Bentegodi 4-0, during the Christmas holidays, but the result at Tombolato is fresher, less than one month ago, and it's a 3-0 win for Cittadella. I'm all but a fan of Hellas, right the contrary, but the presence of Cittadella in serie A would be depressing the way it was the presence of Carpi.

Verona in Serie A again would be boring. Rather see new faces in.
