Giacomo Vrioni

Who are Matteo Brunori and Giacomo Vrioni???

4 June 2022

It is a tricky task to find time to scout the horde of players we have outside the senior squad, whether in the U23 or U19 sides at the club, or plying their trade out on loan domestically or further afield. I tend to look first at appearances, injuries, formations, then am always drawn to […]

Where to from here?

20 May 2022

Looking back on my brief ramblings after the coppa final defeat sheds light on the framework of my overview for the season and attempt to provide a cynical barometer of our current plight and what can be done… Juve had the opportunity to put the knife in, and yet Max went back to 8/9 behind […]

fabio miretti JUVENTUS

The marvel of Miretti

8 April 2022

With the season expectations now narrowed to 4th spot in the table, with sole remaining potential for silverware in the coppa italia, many minds are moving to the Summer. When great hope abounds of further widespread renovation of the squad. Given the large bail-out bundle of cash injected by EXOR to manage our debts and […]

I hope I am wrong…

25 March 2022

The announcement from Arrivabene came as no major shock in it’s general message, though the explanation and details have led to much debate of how both the club and agent(s) involved have handled the affair. Before getting into the key points of the rumblings, mumblings, condemnations, support and horror, it seems prudent to look at […]

Understanding the Dybala affair

23 March 2022

The news that Juventus will not extend Dybala contract has left many of us wondering what on earth went so wrong, that one the most emblematic and technically gifted players had to be shown the back door? After all we became accustomed to extending contracts and overpaying for soooo many useless and overrated chaps, that […]

Sampdoria 1-3 Juve

13 March 2022

We have become much more solid, organised, disciplined with our movements under Max. This has shown hugely in the last few games. And clearly has long been worked upon, with the squad as a whole, hence why it still shows through, during this period of hideous injuries. I keep thinking that our opponents are unlucky, […]

Steps in the Right direction…

9 March 2022

MERCATO mumblings – Late January I must say that I am a little surprised. Pleasantly so. As I have become accustomed to abject failure both on and off the field for many moons now, I was not expecting the welcome flurry of mercato activity of the last few days. Signing the strongest number 9 in […]

Nicolo Fagioli

Give the kids a chance…

18 January 2022

We seem rather strapped for cash. I don’t know the exact figures and doubt anybody knows them. It is never good business sense to reveal you are poor. Yet our financial matters seem harrowing, in whatever reality can be grasped and taken as something near to our reality. The squad is overpaid and bulging with […]

Juve mutterings (back from the brink)

17 December 2021

I have been out of sorts of late, due to an unexpected, certainly unwelcome, yet ultimately unavoidable motorcycle accident involving a three vehicle pile up in my intended direction of travel. Which has led to…a rather testing time all round. Throughout which however, supine demanded on a hospital bed, I kept track of Juve. Even […]

Open thread…Juve mutterings.

13 November 2021

First on the agenda must be Dejan Kulusevski. Who is rumoured to be on his way out, with none other than our old friend Paratici apparently eager to try pluck him from Turin and offer him a chance to shine in London. Arsenal also are in the mix, so say the usual suspects. This talk […]
