Football Italia calcio quiz - Serie A 2005-06

Think you know your Capocannoniere from your catenaccio? Test your Serie A knowledge with Football Italia’s calcio quiz, 2005-06 edition!

The 2005-06 Serie A season will ultimately be remembered for one thing: Calciopoli. The investigation exposed a web of contacts and undue influence, with Juventus general manager Luciano Moggi sitting at the centre of it.

Calciopoli only came to light in May 2006, at a time when Juve should have been celebrating the Scudetto. Instead they were relegated to Serie B and had two titles stripped from their record, with the fallout from that decision still causing controversy today.

Milan, Lazio, Fiorentina and Reggina were all implicated as well, and had to contend with points deductions and European bans in the following season. A number of administrators and referees were banned from football too, some for life.

On the pitch, though, it was a fascinating season. Luca Toni hit a landmark number of goals, Livorno threatened to break into Serie A’s upper echelons and Luis Figo, one of the greatest players of his generation, came to the peninsula. Meanwhile, Italy stood on the brink of World Cup glory.

Agggh yes 2005/06 I remember it well Totti broke his ankle 19 February 2006 and after one goal and four assists in the world cup he was a world champion in July...true story.

Milan won the CL league in 2007 and Inter in 2010 - Twice Italian clubs in the last 16 years. That is all. All because Juventus weakened the league with their cheating and the criminal Platini kept it week with his stupid rules. I guess Italian's love of corruption is only matched by their yellow streak

@ Anon. I understand that people like you are being neglected because of the crisis, but if you have run out of the green tablets, start taking the red ones.

20/20 (only guessed the who broke 30 goals record question)

05/06 was my favorite season of all times, it just missed some great teams like Napoli, Genoa, Bologna and Torino

Also it was a strange season for me for not featuring Brescia

I was then and still am against Inter accepting the 2006 championship for the simple reason I believe championships should be won on the park, without referees help, without rules made by corrupt official, to hamstring other clubs. This is why success in European competition is so important, it sorts the men from the boys.

11/20. My best result but I will be better from season 2006/2007 if you make quiz for upcoming seasons. :)

Also, how did you overcome juventini At 3rd place on the table after just being schooled by them, out of the CL and out of Coppa. You see people, this is what we have to deal with lol. I know covid has people indoors and bored but come on lol!! You are not serious? The sad thing is you can’t even use that as an excuse for your senseless hate. Keep it up haters as, II have said before. You make us Juventus fans feel so special. U have shocked me with your stupidity today.

I went to a grocery store and Stole some candy. I got away with it. Another customer steals the same candy but gets caught. So by your logic Moggi? One thief is right for their actions and the other isn’t ? Well thank you very much for Making me laugh today. This has the be the best comment I have ever seen on this blog. I need to screen shot this level of idiocy lol

I remember inter not getting relegated in the 60s or because of SOL. Anyone knows why? Oh wait. All in the past lol best to move along jealous and hateful for no reason ones.

@ Mattin Leech - That is right Martin trying to implicate others in your guilt makes you innocent, it worked for soooooo many others. Inter may have called but the referees were only listening to Rubentus as always. Inter have now overcome corrupt Rubenti, Platini's Farcil Fair Play, what will Rubentus try next?

No mention of Inter Milan being caught for Article 1 Sporting Fraud in 2006 yet saved by the bell of the Statute of Limitations because the evidence was hidden? Interesting...
on the 15th May, 2020 at 1:37pm
I rememeber Juventus not being relegated to Serie C. Anyone knows why? Oh, wait..
