"Meet the new boss, same as the old boss..."

Angry Italian fans are already turning on their football officials, even as the team stumbles through another round.
Alongside the pro-Azurri banners in the crowd for the Australia game, one pointedly condemned ‘Carraro infame’.
Franco Carraro is one of 26 people charged last week over the Serie A match-fixing scandal, which had already forced him to quit as chairman of the Italian football federation.
Carraro remains a member of both football’s governing body Fifa and the International Olympic Committee.
Indeed, his influential support – and friendships with Tony Blair and Silvio Berlusconi - helped London win the 2012 Olympics.
But a few eyebrows rose when now-disgraced Carraro presented a report to this month’s Fifa Congress – as chairman of Fifa’s internal audit committee, set up to clean up earlier scandals.
How you say...?

A rubar poco si va in galera, a rubar tanto si fa cariera.
