The title of this thread should be changed to Football Spurs website so people know which website we're talking about :ninja:

I listen to TalkSport a lot, they too, could be renamed TalkSpurs. The media really seem to love Spurs. And God forbid you say against Harry Kane.

Bukayo Saka = future GOAT.

Spot on Myles. I took a glance down the stories today and there's more news (although 'clickbait' would be more accurate) on Tottenham than any Serie A team, again.

https://football-italia.net/team/juventus-fc/

When you click on the "Juventus news" link on the FI site you get the above page which contains two major problems. One, there's no news. Two, scroll down and look at the squad list...

That page doesn't load for me surprise surprise! :roll:

The pages only load every other day for me, and the android app doesn't update half the time either so i end up checking their headlines on twitter and guessing what the articles say, which i'm starting to find more efficient as the articles usually say nothing anyway. ;)

I can't understand how they pay salaries from that website, the mind boggles! :headscratching:
Maybe they're using the Juve book of accounting! ;)

As you can't see it the squad list seems to contain anybody whose been a part of the squad over the last few few years, including youth team players. It's a long list containing the likes of Barzagli, Benatia, Khedira and Higuain amongst others.

The Milan page is exactly the same, and yes I've been having issues with pages not loading recently, although the minute by minute news page appears to be functioning again now so like you I can just guess what the articles say without reading them.

I'll have to take your word for it :lol: because today it loads but i get an interstitial overlay of a advert for Retro football management that won't close and it won't allow me to scroll, so all i see is a big advert and i can't read anything else.
Google search indexing penalizes websites with interstitials these days because, well, they're annoying as fuck, and hide the content which the visitor actually wanted to see when they clicked on the link in the google index.
Interstitials associate the advertised product/company with annoyance and a bad experience.

I can't wait to start working for FI and start writing about random twitter interactions with Amazon :ninja:

So disappointed in myself for getting as far as halfway in the article before bailing on it, i need to get a life!

Former forum member delpiero (Rav), who setup and subsequently sold juvefc.com has setup https://footitalia.com as an alternative to the FI website. I have the Juve section on my phone's home page the last week or so and it's good. The FI android app does my head in now with all the repeated same stories just from different sources, maybe that's just with their Juve articles but it's a head-wrecker for me anyway.

Thanks Myles, I'll give it a go as although the layout of the News page has improved on the FI site the content is as bad as ever.

Sounds like a plan to me.

Anyone use the football italia app? It's changed to The Italian Football app and now has feeds from multiple websites all repeating the same stories, sometimes a day late and after there has been completely different developments to the same story. Maybe it's just an issue with the Juve news on their app. Rav/delpiero reckons they might be all websites that were acquired by the same company that acquired juvefc.com.
Anyway might setup a twitter account called @LastWeeksNews and just retweet all their articles as they post them :ninja:
