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 […]

Juve v FIOR

6 November 2021

Has the ritiro helped create unity and more importantly belief and hunger? Early signs against Zenith were very positive, for with a bit more luck, better finishing, we could and should have won 6-2. Too much of the hype of this game is about Dusan. Which all seems to me like smoke without any fire, […]

La Juve Vita

1 November 2021

By: Travis M. Gallardo Let’s start the bidding at 40m! Do I hear 50m?! The modern era of the beautiful game has become so synonymous with coin and highlights that the line between reality and fantasy is far too casually blurred. Certainly we all deserve a moment’s peace with the wandering mind that dares to […]

Juve pulse check

29 October 2021

Once again, all too quickly, we are back in the headlines for the wrong reasons. Wailing despondency erupted, within the fanbase and mainstream pundit platforms after our midweek home defeat to Sassuolo. Which was the first game I had missed, gladly so it turns out. Yet had I watched it, whilst I would have been […]

Inter v Juventus

24 October 2021

After a run which has seen us win 7 of the last 8, producing a superb quarter of clean sheets and 1-0 victories of late, we now face an important test in the derby d’italia against our old chums Inter. There is something lacking of the traditional menace, despite the importance of the fixture to […]

Zenith 0-1 Juve

21 October 2021

A fairly dogged performance against a very well organised Zenith side, saw Juve emerge with another clean sheet and 3 more vital points. Not much worked well going forward, barely any quality passages of play as the home side maintained a very solid, very compact defensive shape and aimed to hit on the break. Given […]

Juve 1-0 Roma

Juventus 1-0 Roma

19 October 2021

This game provided us many a question mark going into it. From team selection, to formation, and so on. As things solidified, the dust cleared, and we took to the pitch. It could’ve been anyone’s match. Mad Max once again showed his tactical prowess. Showing that the sum of your parts can be far more […]

Juventus v Roma PREVIEW

16 October 2021

Such a shame we had the international break to truncate what felt like a steady improvement in our form and results. The momentum was building, and with so many players sent away on national team duties, the fear is that we are back to square one. Yet a fair few remained, and no major new […]

Paratici, Cherubini and Agnelli

The Paratici Legacy

14 October 2021

We sit in 7th after a haphazard start to the campaign which many of us felt so positive towards before the first game of the season. For Paratici had gone! Pirlo had gone! And yet then Ronaldo left in the final flurry, which most of us tried to look past, clung onto the hope that […]
