Allan caught napping on the Napoli team bus


Napoli's flight to Denmark for their Europa League match against FC Midtjylland was delayed by plane troubles, meaning that Napoli's bus trip to the airport was late as well. Apparently that was problematic for Allan, who quite literally got caught napping by his teammates, who appear quite amused by the situation.

Pro tip, Allan: never, ever, ever be the first one to fall asleep. He'll be lucky if this picture is the worst thing that happened to him.

Christian Maggio shows how not to mark a runner


This is, simply put, dire "marking" from Maggio on the second goal scored by Sassuolo on Sunday. He's starting way too central, then only takes one half-glance over his shoulder to see where Sansone is -- and doesn't really react to Sansone's far-post run. There's no near-post pressure that he has to worry about, because Raul Albiol is right there and no other Sassuolo attackers are within 20 yards when they enter the box.

It gets worse when, once the two actually get kind of close, Maggio doesn't bother to check again and actually moves away from Sansone, clearing the way for the Sassuolo attacker to sidestep to the far post for that cross.

We're just going to ignore Maggio getting in Reina's way as he tried to come across to cover the shot, because GOD WHY.

Napoli fans are not making a good impression in France


Seriously? Setting crap on fire in a foreign country is what you're going to do when you're acting as ambassadors of the club and the fanbase? These so-called "Ultras" are doing nothing but tarnish everyone's reputation by doing crap like this. This is a disgrace.
