ROME – Genoa and Bologna, Lazio and Udinese: they are four football clubs and for a century or so they fight for four championships. For a century … That scudetto is mine. No, it's not yours, you took it unfairly, give it back to me. It goes on for about a century and now the battle of the four championships has started again.
It was 1896 and Udinese won the championship of what was then literally the Foot-ball. Tournament played in Treviso, national tournament not so much. But Udinese has never stopped asking the FIGC the official recognition of what it considers a championship. But, so far … So far it's only Udinese match versus Figc.
The game is tough and also sour for the Scudetto 1915. You do not play the final between Lazio and Genoa because there is war. The Scudetto will then be assigned to Genoa. Lazio still burns them and asks to share that scudetto, in short, a championship for two.
Even more intoxicated the 1925 league game. Bologna beat Genoa in the Northern final. But Genoa claims, protests and attests to irregularities in previous matches. Genoa revives suspicions of 93 years ago, also calls here for the 1925 shield for two. Bologna does not like, snorts and does not hide the annoyance and even a bit of anger.
And we are in 1927. At Turin they revoke a championship. Revoke, hear, hear … for a match, an illegal agreement no less than with a player … Juventus! Tal Allemandi. Losing a Scudetto for treating with a Juventus. Sum of injustice for Turin, which time does not cancel.
Believe it or not, a group has been working for years, a commission, someone at the Football Federation to examine, collect, keep warm (to make it seem impossible) these eternal quarrels. So how many badges won Torino or how many Bologna or how many Lazio … depends. In Turin and Bologna and in Lazio each one has his count. On the other hand we are or we are not the country-league where the strongest team and with more badges at the stadium every time he writes to have won more than those who give him the official table? In a century or so, there will be a commission that will evaluate whether Moggi's badges were good or not. Bet us as well.
