    Interesting history, thanks for posting this. I remember the Italian restriction on foreigners but did not recall the precedent that led to its overhaul.

    Another tough variable that works against Italy is its socialistic tax policy. The top bracket of earners pay 43%, which is much lower than what it used to be but still comparatively high. Italy also taxes your assets, even if you hold them in a foreign country or earned them previously. If you compare the effective tax rate of ~50% to say, France, which is closer to ~35%, a player with a $5 million contract takes home $2.5 million in Italy vs $3.25 million abroad. (I think this the main reason why Donnarumma left Juventus, personally). So, the more Italian stars command in salary, the greater the incentive to play elsewhere. Serie A is left to subsist on young players and foreigners from nations with lower league wages (Africa and the Slavs in particular).

    today United lost 2-1 to Brighton (No scoring, as his goal was an own goal by a Brighton player Alexis macallister a Scottish-argentinian) , just wanted to say that this Sancho and rashford are overrated, Very normal players with speed but nothing else, If they were white they would have been chased away from United (like Daniel James, Pretty much the same as Sancho and Rashford a fast player but of average skill), Just knowing that United paid 85 million to Sancho.

    Very disappointed to see Werner leave the premiership. Hopefully he gets back on form at his former club and can have a good world cup.

    Haaland with an assist. KDB and Foden on score sheet. 3-0 city with 20 mins to play.

    Pale face are alright, I guess!

    Manchester United embarrassed 4-0 away at Brentford. The Red Devils started just two white Britons (and two black British, the punchless duo of Rashford and Jadon Sancho).

    What happened to Chelsea? They were rather white-friendly last season but trotted out just four palefaces in the 2-2 home draw against Tottenham, which started 8 whites (if you count the dusky Argentine Christian Romero). The '*** Army' also featured two blacks and a Korean.

    Werner gone back to Germany, Christensen gone Barcelona and Saul loan ended. Pulisic and Azpilicueta on bench.

    Sancho one of the biggest flops, only now getting mentioned.

    Harry Kane off the mark with a late goal.

    I believe that in the case of Tottenham, Be the Italian coach Antonio conte That changed the team, brought in some good white players (dejan kulusevski A Swede of Macedonian descent who looks a bit like a Norse, Rodrigo betancur a uruguayan The two from Juventus, Brought a French Clement lenglet of Barcelona a Frenchman not someone from France Afrique and the croatian ivan perisic That came from the former team of Antônio conte inter of Milano) And sold two blacks (a "dutch" Steven bergwiJn sold to ajax and a Overestimated black American cameron carter-vickers sold to Celtic)

    Tottenham this year will be watchable.

    Unfortunately, the great scapegoat of the moment for Manchester United has been Maguire, The amount of attack he's been under is abnormal, he's certainly fail in games Where not only does he fail but others do too, but Manchester United can't go goalless against Brentford, And the attack is not his fault, unfortunately he has been the most attacked player in this squad.
