Mia Cara Lazio,

The eagle symbolizes courage, friendship, strength and above all honor. These elements have accompanied S.S.LAZIO since the day she was founded 115 years ago.

As a Laziale growing up in a country dominated by supporters of big teams like Juventus, Manchester United and Liverpool, I was often laughed at by the other kids for supporting Lazio. To them, it is important to support a team that wins all the time. But for me, I choose you because of your beautiful history and that I was totally fascinated by the Biancoceleste colours.

Whenever you play, you play with grit, honor, passion and determination and i could feel your aches and pain whenever you fought for the ball, or fell to the ground after a tackle by the opponents. You believed in winning; not as a cliché but reality! You never surrender or give up even when you were 3-0 or 4-0 down, and it was exactly this ‘Non Mollare Mai’ spirit that won our hearts.

Sadly, all these things that once made S.S.LAZIO a fearsome force in Italy and the world are missing. You are soulless and no longer play with that ‘passion’. Above all, you lack ‘grinta’ and ‘cuore’. This is not my Lazio! Where are you??

Mia cara Lazio, please come back! Please show us how to win again and show the world that we are truly the ‘PRIMA SQUADRA DELLA CAPITALE’.

I have always loved you and I will love you until my dying breath. FORZA LAZIO!

Sincerely,
Author: Nigel Gan
