We are always on the lookout for new writers, so if you think you know Calcio and want to join the team get in touch by emailing us at: ForzaItalianFootball@snack-media.com

Conor Clancy (@concalcio) – Editor-in -chief

Kit nerd; calcio lover; 3-5-2 advocate; partial to a stat. Huge follower of football in Italy and Ireland, as well as keeping an eye on events in England. I will also watch the occasional MLS or South American game for good measure. Based in Bray, Ireland.

Luca Gunby – Deputy Editor

University of Leeds History and Italian student who spent a year abroad following Hellas and Chievo every other week in Verona. Family links to Liguria have left me with an interest in Sampdoria. I have previously contributed for hereisthecity.com. Follow me on Twitter @Gunbyzono

Thomas Tague – Deputy Editor

English sports writer who has an undying love for dodgy goalkeepers and Alessandro Del Piero. A keen interest in both the European and North American sports scenes leads to many restless nights under the bleak sky of the East Midlands. Appreciative of Massimo Ferrero’s unique everything and Mbaye Niang’s five-sizes-too-small shooting boots. May or may not have pulled a Francis Underwood to rise to my current position at FIF.

Cronan Yu (@Cronan_Yu)

Cronan Yu is a Law and Arts student by day, and freelance football writer by night. He has covered European and Asian football for several media outlets including Goal.com, FourFourTwo, ESPN FC, Bleacher Report, Sport360 and SB Nation.

Forza Italia! I’m an Italian-American writer hailing from New York and I love Italian football. My favourite Serie A teams are Napoli and AS Roma. Some of my favourite players are Pablo Daniel Osvaldo, Antonio Di Natale, Mario Balotelli, Daniele De Rossi and Edinson Cavani. Outside of Italian football, I am a fan of Liverpool and the New York Red Bulls. Follow me on Twitter for a variety of interesting tweets: @beardedlegend

Marco Jackson

Some years after I fell in love with Calcio, I fell in love with Turin. As such, you’ll find me generally finding me mooching around around Torino. Other teams I enjoy include Sassuolo and Lecce. My footballing passion is goalkeeping, and I find it difficult to criticise any goalkeeper. Favourite players include Baggio, Buffon, Bianchi.

My interest in Italian football began with the broadcasting of Football Italia in the early 90’s, turning to infatuation with the Champions League victories of AC Milan, Paolo Maldini an all-time hero, and Juventus in 1994 and 1996. With no allegiance to any Italian side in particuar I have a strange fascination with Genoa since witnessing them beat my beloved Liverpool in the 1992 UEFA Cup. The last two decades following the reds have strangely seen frequent contests against Italian opposition. Also writing for thefootballmagazine.com, you can follow me on Twitter: @rabbitrabbiton

Vito Doria

I come from Melbourne, Australia and I am a Sport Journalism student at La Trobe University. Followed Juventus as a child when Fabrizio Ravanelli played there but carried a soft spot for Sampdoria once I heard about them. The surname says it all. Switched fully to the Sampdoria cause in recent years once Antonio Cassano and Giampaolo Pazzini arrived. You can follow me on Twitter: @VitoCDoria

Forza Italian Football was founded in 2010 as an offshoot of the Italian Serie A Football FanCast.
