I follow most leagues and competitions at least.
You don't know what "following" really means if you haven't been to Italy. 3 nation-wide daily sports newspapers. And during the summer the tv channel Sportsitalia 24 spends 3 hours every night talking about transfer news. They've got a poor guy standing in front of Hotel Hilton in Milan all day just to see who enters the building (apparently that's where most transfer talks take place).

I gotta admit I never really cared about the Premier League. I miss the good old times, though when everybody was scared of Juventus.
Gary Neville certainly was.

How many stadiums in Britain are club-owned these days by the way?

That's where Italian football has fucked up in the last 20 years. Juve's new stadium looks awesome, though. I like the suspended roof and the pixel-style outside.
Should be quite intimidating when it's ready in 2 months cause of the steep terraces (sidenote: the Emirates Stadium sucks).
