“In last three years we have been winner three times on the pitcth and two times outside the pitch. We always knew we were right, that we deserved these three promotions with sweat and effort but we had to defend from worst accusation you can ever receive in football world. All this could put us in a bad light and blemish what we conquered. We silently fought, without give ever chance to attacks we received in these two months to hit us. And also in this case we are winners. Now, with all our enthusiasm, we can finally concentrate only on Serie A: will be 38 battles, with just one target: defend the category with tooth and nail.”

As we use to do, we give you the chance to listen to Parmesan’s voices. Our mission is to bring Parma and Parma Calcio closer to abroad fans and this is one of the special occasions to do it.

You already heard Fulvio Ceresini reaction to first verdict on well-known investigation we had to relate to this summer. Now we propose you the post that Marco Ferrari, former Parma vice-president and co-founder of Nuovo Inizio, the Society that allowed, together with popular shareholder Parma Partecipazioni Calcistiche, rebirth of Parma Calcio three years ago, published on Facebook few minutes after the appeal verdict that determined Parma non-involvement in WhatsApp messages absurd affair.

Since long time I have not an operative role and I don’t have a place in Parma Calcio society. I fell free then, in a strictly personal way, to share some thoughts on recent facts.

With all our limits, rebirth of Parma in just three years could have been a positive advertisement for italian football in general. They preferred spit on it. Many times. In less more than one year we have been put on all first pages of italian and abroad newspapaers for two of most infamous accusation in sport: football bets and sport illicit.

I still remember the headline of an important newspaper after Parma vs Ancona: “Parma, the shadow of Camorra”. Some facts of that days nauseated me and had an important role in my decision of leave every place in Society. Not even the time to forget ‘Pozzuoli millions’ – that never existed as all investigations demonstrated – that “Cazzein affair” begun. With Parma Calcio virtually relegated for sport illicit on websites and newspapers worldwide.

Calaiò messages – careless and inopportune – has never been a sport illicit. Common sense of everyone have ever been in a locker room and is little used to WhatsApp spirit and emoji says this. It is the pitch, that knows that Parma always got what deserved in these years, to say this. Finally, today, it is also a Judge to say this.

Today verdict cancel a spot put too much easily – by many – on our patch. But – sincerely – I can not be happy for it. Because in last two months we already suffered a condemnation that nobody could payback: we deserved on the pitch to be Rangers and they tried to make us seem Pippeins.

After hell tour in 2015, Parma fans, staff, team and everyone contributed to an historical venture, deserved to enjoy with enthusiasm Serie A return.

We all have been obligated to pass horrible weeks scanned by many, too many bad words in this Great Ugliness summer.

Waiting that Time – like a wise friend suggests – will put as usual ‘each queen in her throne and every clown in their circus’.”

Parma with no penalization?

Today is appeal day. Parma will present his formal answer to verdict that said we will start serie A with 5 points less.

Daily the court will decide about penalization in this season and Calaiò suspension.

In the better option Parma will have no penalization and Calaiò 6 months suspension.

To resume all the story read from the beginning posts with “investigation” tag

The appeal? Eat well and laugh on it


On 9th august there will be the appeal and the verdict that will definitely say if Parma will start with a penalization in next season and if Calaiò can still yearn for a professional career.

Rumors says that at least penalization will be reduced.

Anyway in Parma there is someone that is taking chance for laugh on it.

A parmesan pub, Vecchie Maniere (translated “Old Ways”), decided to add to its menu the Claudiein, the sandwich that seems to be friend but it is not 🙂 with Culaccia (don’t call it just “ham”), Parmigiano cheese, rocket and unknown bread and sauce AKA “the betrayal”.

if you don’t know understand why Claudiein is considered an unfaithful friend read HERE. And if you don’t know nothing about the ridiculous investigation, forget it.

If you can’t forget it, following the tag “investigation”- HERE – you can reconstruct the whole story.

Eat well, and laugh on it!

Fulvio Ceresini on verdict



We report former Parma president Fulvio Ceresini words on today verdict, published on Facebook right after the judgement.

Thank you for your clear words, President, from Parma Fans Worldwide all.

” This time I’m not writing as Parma fan, but as a person that for 25 years lived inside this football world and that saw things that you people…

FIGC that control and organize italian football is actually under commission… and this is already illustrative… It control it so well that, not considering for compassion our national team results, in last six years lost 38 societies, failed or that could not inscribe in its respective leagues and many other will follow. It control it so well that don’t see, or pretend not seeing, fake financial reports in innumerable society, at every level, technically failed since years, that makes creative finance selling brands and making fake capital gain. You will see that Chievo will be the most unlucky team to sacrifice to the reasons of rightness and rule respect.

Then… what do they fabricate this industrious football governors? What do they decide to do while his rotten world is imploding? They decide to give a signal that they are there, attacking the newcomer, the helthier, but that arrived to higher leve probably unexpectedly too fast and probably to the detriment of other of friends of friends, They invent from nothing a farce process, keep us on check for more than two months and condemn us to a penalty that, compared to real crimes committed by confessed criminal, that result excessive… to say it in French… nauseating.

Shame on you all.

It is a difficult and dangerous world.”

The Captain, again

From: YouTube

Is Alessandro Lucarelli that face the camera talking about the attacks that Parma still suffers.

Interviewed by Sky Sport Italia, Parma new club manager, still acting Captain, about the situation says:

“In opposition to what seems from outside we are totally calm about this situation because as we use to say ‘do no evil and have no fear’. Our awareness is clean, as a team and as a society. We are in this trial because we have to but I think that all this it is almost ridiculous because we conquered promotion during the season.

They are riding this wave because they want to get benefit from it but if they wanted to be promoted then they should have demonstrated to deserve it on the pitch as we did. They now act like justice and truth defender when at least once in a week they are in front of a judge for extremely more serious care than ours. So, I have nothing to answer to this continuous attack we receive, I am still convinced that Justice will give us reason, unfortunately our promotion is bleamished because people just read headlines without deepen, anyway we all should laugh on all this situation.”

About investigation

Since you probably heard about the investigation and certainly information you get are partial we would like to make a resume of what happened and what is about to happen.

To be clear: we are fans, not journalist or lawyers, and this is what we understood from this weird “italian” situation.

Before Parma- Spezia match Calaiò – only him, not Ceravolo- sent three Sms to a former team mate now playing in Spezia. These are the Sms

They sound like: 1) Hey Pippein, don’t break balls please my friend 2) Tell it also to Claudiein 3) Expecially for the knowledge you have with me. Then there should be another one in which he downplay.

Doing this is not allowed. Even if Dal Col did not answered, even if it was sort of kidding with a former teammate and friend, even if certainly the match was not combined for that. The point is that in Italy exist Responsabilità oggettiva that means that Parma Calcio 1913 is responsible for everything one of its player does h24, 7/7. That is why the prosecution is not only on Calaiò but also on society that, of course, is totally far from this case.

On 17th July the accusation asked for 4 year suspension for Calaiò (he is 37, so will close his professional carreer here) plus 50k euros fee, and minus 2 points in past season for Parma Calcio (that would mean lost of the second place and direct promotion in the league) or minus 6 points in next season in serie A.

All of us thought the same thing: with 2 points less Parma will end at third place so, how the hell can they replay Playoff? They will relegate a team that conquered at least playoff without let play them? It is weird. We don’t know what to expect but it is weird.

In addiction to all this there are some strange points: Dal Col that received the watsup messages never said they considered it illicit but they just reported it to their society, Spezia, that did not denounced but just communicate it to Procura. Spezia communication arrived in Procura on 14th may but the investigation started on 4th June! What they waited for? If they didn’t start the investigation properly why they decided to do it later once playoff already started?

Now, probably before Saturday, the judge will decide on it. After that for sure Parma will go on with other grades do judgement to go out completely clean like it is from all this and will also decide if recoup losses with its player Calaiò. We will see.

The sure things are that Parma Calcio never fixed matches. Don’t stop to press titles made just to sell newspapers, read only official communications in. Parma is clean, society is clean and victim of all this weird situation. Calaiò made something wrong and will pay for it, we hope, the right penalty but not 4 years suspension like if he really fixed a match of sold it.

We are Parma, don’t forget. Don’t let anyone saying we are do it illegally, it is not us, that one.
