    A very special episode of The Napoli Rant this week. We had an emphatic win at Spezia for the last matchday if Serie A. With nothing at stake either way, Napoli B defeated Spezia 3-0. However, we didn't mention it much, as this week we decided to take an in-depth look at the Top 4 UCL representatives for Italy.  The panel joining the Raff's, who obviously were representing Napoli, are as follows: Representing Milan, the new Champions of Italy: Adreano Di Nardo of The Calcio Guys  (@adreano_calcio || @TheCalcioGuys) Representing Inter, Coppa Italia winners and 2nd Place: Alex Donno of Calcio Connection (@AlexDonno || @CalcioConPod) Representing Juventus, 4th Place and first season without a trophy since 2012: Cliff Esmiol, host of Stoppage Time on the All Juve Cast Network (@CliffEsmiol || @AllJuveCast) We each give our teams Beast of the Season, review our teams season, and play an exciting fantasy game we call "The Missing Piece", where each of us get to pick one player from one of the other top four teams that we think would have gotten our team over the scudetto hump, or that would help immensely in next seasons Champions League. We had a blast with these fine gentlemen, and we strongly encourage our viewers and listeners to check out their respective platforms...yes even Cliff!

    In this edition of The Napoli Rant, we say goodbye to our hometown boy Lorenzo Insigne.  "Lorenzinho" "Lorenzo il Magnifico" "Capitano". We look back at Insigne's finest moments, we remember what he meant to us and we wish him well as he moves on to Toronto FC.  OH YEAH...THERE WAS A MATCH TOO!!! Napoli defeat Genoa 3-0 at the Maradona, a match that many of our great friends attended.  Osimhen scored an emphatic header, Insigne got himself on the scoresheet in his final match, and Lobotka went coast to coast and scored his first Serie A goal. Oh, and we locked up 3rd, finished over Juventus for the first time in 11 seasons, and we relegated Genoa in the process.  Could our scugnizzo write a better ending? I think not We also briefly look at the final weekend in Serie A with the scudetto on the line and relegation at stake, we look at Serie B promoted teams and promotion playoff, and a special mention of a former Napoli player making waves in the Serie B relegation play-out (HINT: this SUPER player got on his BIKE for this one)!   Far From Vesuvius is proud to be host for the hottest, most INTERACTIVE SSC Napoli show on social media, The Napoli Rant!
