Alessandro Del Piero on The Offside

Brace yourself blogging world!! After Soccerlens, the great Marco Pantanella has conquered yet another mountainous peak and landed at… The Offside. Ok using ”great” and “mountainous peak” might be exaggerating a tad, but it looked cool when I wrote it.

For those of you have been living under a rock since the 2006 World Cup, The Offside is a blogging network which… Ah, why bother? I’ll just copy-paste their “About” page here below (yeah, the great Marco Pantanella is also a big lazy bum):

The Offside is part of the BootsnAll Travel Network. The site will take a humorous (we think), irreverent (we think) and occasionally insightful (possibly) look at club football from leagues around the world. If there is a sex scandal in England, we’ll be stuck in the middle of it. If a player is traded for a thousand pounds of beef in Romania, we’ll cook the steak. If something interesting happens in MLS, we’ll be just as surprised as you.

Launched after the success of the World Cup Blog, which featured a blogger for each of the 32 teams in the 2006 tournament, as well as one about the referees and another for general tournament news, The Offside will follow the major football leagues from around the world, with an ever-growing community of individual team blogs and a general football blog on the front page. 

Now you’ll say: “Ok great Marco thanks for the background info, but where does Alessandro Del Piero fit in all this?”

Well just recently, The Offside opened their Players section and launched (among others) the Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham, and Lionel Messi blogs. Guess who pitched the idea for a Del Piero blog? :)

So without further ado, allow me to introduce you to the blog for all things ADP:

      You know, when I heard about our plan to do player blogs, I was skeptical.

      Seeing them play out, though, I’m much more hopeful. Not a giggly fangirl in the bunch so far. Instead we’re seeing serious fans of the game who just happen to like a particular player.

      Welcome to The Offside!
