Italian football has always had a strong relationship with Argentines.Some have delighted, some disappointed and then, of course, there was Diego Maradona. But most have got on with their jobs in a professional manner give or take the odd dodgy passport.This weekend should see Lazio maintain top spot in the league, with three citizens from that fine South American country playing their part.In fact, of the current top 10 in the table, only AC Milan, AS Roma and Palermo do not have an Argentine in their first-team squad.So let’s name the best doing their nation proud, starting from the top:Mauro ZarateTotally unknown to the Italian public when he arrived from Birmingham City in the summer via Al Sadd in Qatar, but now after six goals in the first five games, the Lazio striker leads the goalscoring charts to become the star of the early part of the season.

There was once a thing you could always rely on with Juventus, and that was a mean old defence.

Sometimes a bile-letting bout of finger-pointing and blame-gaming can be both a useful and entertaining exercise. After all, the Jack Bauer side to La Liga Loca doesn’t think there has been nearly enough cattle-prod poking of those responsible for the hell-in-a-handcart financial meltdown the world is currently enjoying.If outright torture is perhaps going too far for some lily-livered liberals then maybe the guilty parties could instead be introduced to public stocks of a very non-financial kind?As to be expected after Saturday’s Montjuic mayhem, the accusing and abusing is still rumbling on in Catalunya.
