Is anyone here a fan of Lazio football team? Their official name is Societa Sportiva Lazio and were founded way back in 1900. Being in the UK i first became aware of Lazio when Paul Gascoigne signed for them in the early 90's. He is the only British player of note that i can think of that has played for Lazio. Lazio have been known as the eagles due to the emblem on their club badge, it is an acknowledgement to the emblem of Zeus, the God of sky and thunder in Greek mythology.
