Was writing a piece on Daniel Storey's Gazza In Italy book. Had a look at the top scorers in England and Italy in 1992/93:

Premier League - Sheringham, Ferdinand, Holdsworth, Quinn, Shearer, White, Armstrong, Cantona, Deane, Hughes, Le Tissier, Robins and Wright.

Serie A - Giuseppe Signori, Roberto Baggio, Abel Balbo, Ruben Sosa, Gabriel Batistuta, Daniel Fonseca, Roberto Mancini, Maurizio Ganz, Jean-Pierre Papin, Florin Raducioiu, Marco Van Basten and Gianfranco Zola.

Different world. Italy still had the foreigner rule too. That helped spread the quality but imagine how many more star names would have been there without it.

That's not bad considering English football began in 1992.

Brian Deane was at least better than Fonseca and Ganz, who were both shit.

Yeah. Juventus would stick him on the transfer list immediately on CM 97/98.

Raducioiu was shite by the time he came over here, wasn't he?

He was one of those Romanian players who was great for country but shite for club. Plus he went to West Ham, big clue to his shitness.

Mark E. Smith reads the classified results. Tottenham Hotspur postponed West Ham 1H, Southampton Town, Chesterfield Town, Gillingham Town & of course, Bristol...and League 2 (Continued), presumably from League 1.
