Zauli enjoyed a decent debut season as coach with the Juve u23 side, with the team just squeezing into the top 10 for a respectable mid table finish and qualification for the season end knock-out tournament. In the first game of the playoffs, we beat 5th placed Pro Patria 1-3 away>>> Promising midfielder Rannocchia, tricky […]

Who is Giacomo Vrioni?

14 April 2021

Now and then I come across a transfer fee in the youth ranks which instantly makes me raise an eyebrow. Then delve to take a deeper peek at why we have invested far more than a 50k punt on a hoped for gem in the rough. The most recent of which is Giacomo Vrioni. Who in […]

19 March 2021

With Covid-19 and injuries ravaging Juve’s 2020/21 compact season, we’ve seen quite a number of U23 players regularly pop-up in our squad lists.

It seems like a different age, maybe a different man, when I last found time to delve into the youth sector.

Fabio Pecchia ended his debut campaign as U23 coach with victory in the Serie C coppa italia final on Saturday. Goals from Brunori and Rafia earned the side a 2-1 victory over Ternana.

With the senior side failing to spark into life, drudgery abounds domestically with some life still found on the European front, it seems a good time to look to the youth sides and investments for a progress report and to highlight any gems in the mega rough. The fear of course is that Paratici will […]

26 April 2019

Whilst the seniors were made to appear laboured, disjointed, ancient in their movements when faced with the youthful exuberance of the Ajax squad which outplayed them over both legs of the recent senior ties in the Champions League, the tables were turned at U17 level… The Future Cup (officially known as the ABN AMRO Future Cup, and previously […]
