I did say 'to me'....
Discovered Serie A as an impressionable kid, loved it ever since - been a die-hard Juventus fan since age 10 thanks to James Richardson, those black and white Ariston kits, and of course, Roberto Baggio. I don't think any football TV show has matched Gazzetta in that time - Richardson was a brilliant host, the interviews were genuinely entertaining instead of being cliché-filled borefests. Possibly just nostalgia for my childhood kicking in.

Italian football was very defensive back then, more than it is now, so they definitely made it look more exciting than it actually was.

Probably right, although you could make any football match more exciting by only showing the highlights. Or by having one or more of Zidane, Baggio, Batistuta, Del Piero, Rui Costa, Totti, Ronaldo etc play in it.

The Italian league was extremely competitive in the 90s; Juventus, Inter, Milan, Roma, Fiorentina, Lazio and Parma were all very strong sides both domestically and in European football. I wouldn't say it was boring, but the defensive work rates of every team was considerably higher than English counterparts due to the popularity of the high-pressing, defend-from-the-front system pioneered by Sacchi (pretty much every team was playing it) and the quality of the defenders on show, Baresi, Maldini, Thuram, Bergomi, Ferrara, Aldair etc... all world class defenders.
Very poorly made. Don't like doing this, but its a cold from me.
