If you miss 1990s Serie A and the early 2000s, this is the place to be.

So, Ronan Mullen, Jonathan Higgins and Colm Boohig joined me to talk Batigol and the other great forwards of the era.

From Christian Vieri and Beppe Signori to Dario Hubner and Roberto Baggio, we've been looking back in depth.
