Turin: Part Two

by

The River Po

Well, I’m back to work again, just as the Albion have hit form again; Derby was my last live game until April. Here’s the best of the rest of my photos from Turin, as promised. I’ll be pretty quiet on here until April, and then it’s seeing the end of the Championship season in, and another game over in Italy, Sampdoria v Fiorentina. I fancy Albion to sneak the last play-off place, and Samp to stay in Serie A now they have master tactician and player puncher Delio Rossi in charge. Cheers.

The memorial to Il Grande Torino on the back wall of the Superga Basilica, a very poignant place

Great views from Superga

Result of the shopping in Turin, a nice bit of shiny Moncler, the stylish Torinese are mostly covered in this stuff at this time of year.

    Amazing views you were haunted in getting such a game dose not look like I am getting to Turin.You need to be a Celtic season ticket holder to get a ticket at the moment.
    Take care

      Cheers, can you not get a ticket for the home seats? I’m sure you can, all you need is your passport.

      • John Says:

        Did not try but the word is the game is sell out and tickets would be hard to get if your not Italian.Celtic would not sell tickets to none ticket holders for the friendly in Amsterdam in the summer my brother had to buy one from Ajax.As a result of something that happened in Udinese.Celtic are doing their best to sanitise the game
        with uefa.
        Cheers

    Seems you had a really good time in Turin. I was really pleased when I looked up the score. I was at the Stadio delle Alpi with Hamburg SV over twenty ago but that was a crap ground not up to the standarts you would expect from a club like Juve. A real improvement here it seems.
    I also like how you showthe city of Turin in this post. Again really good photos on dislay here. Also like your new jacket. Moncler made also a big return in Germany but more with the fashion crowd than on the terraces.
    I am a little bit gutted that you won´t be active until April as I really like your style. Take care Fabian

    poles in here on this portal. There is so much to
    say about this site and I wouldn’t have enough time to write
    all aspects down. Thanks for creating such
    of the site.
