Juventus 2-1 AC Milan coppa italia 25.1.17

January 26, 2017

Player Ratings Neto – Could do nothing about the superb strike from Bacca which came out of nowhere. He got down well to save from Fucka late on and finally made a comfortable block on Deulofeu. Considering he barely features in the starting XI this was a impressive effort from the Brazilian. 7 Bonucci – Finding […]

Juventus 3-0 Lazio…Almost there

April 27, 2016

A few weeks back, I had this marked as one of the three fixtures where I saw a possibility of losing points. Napoli’s games against Inter and Roma were the parallel tricky ties for our major foes for the title. We edged the Milan game, which was first on my list, then faced Lazio in […]

Ac Milan 1-2 Juventus

April 27, 2016

I had suspected we would face a sterner test than league positions and recent results would suggest. For games against AC Milan are always something separate, beyond and apart from the general run of the league campaign. A different kind of honour is at stake, something noble, proud and majestic, for if there are two […]

Juventus 1-0 Empoli

April 4, 2016

There is always hesitation vis-a-vis how we will fare after many of our players have been traveling long distance and adopting to different tactics with different players whilst others have been absent of any c0mpetitive action. The international break, many of us had hoped, would offer a chance for the side to recover key personnel […]

Juventus 2-2 Bayern Munich…last rites.

February 24, 2016

I remain in a state of recovery. Still my blood feels alive with war and battle, my body tired yet my spirit a flame, for we witnessed a true marvel when the Germans came to town. Unfortunately I had to head straight the office after the match, from being thrown hither and thither by great […]

Juventus 1-0 Napoli…Back where we belong.

February 14, 2016

We approached this crunch tie with the league leaders on the back of 14 straight victories well aware that to win would complete a remarkable recovery from our worst start to a Serie A campaign on record, by reaching the summit. Whilst confidence was high, the same could be said of our opponents, who were […]

Juventus 1-0 Roma Topolini, never lupi

January 26, 2016

Facing our arch enemies from Rome, Allegri opted for arguably our strongest possible starting XI with the expected 3-5-2. Barzagli returned to the ranks after recovering from his latest muscular bother. The game struck a fair rhythm early doors with Spalletti’s game-plan clearly set to frustrate in the middle, cut off key supply routes to […]

The Boss has weathered the storm…Carpi 2-3 Juventus

December 21, 2015

I had planned on conjuring my analysis of the chaotic Carpi match from many pages of notes I made during the game. Yet all I find is the rabid rantings of a lunatic. Passages of writing which have no place on your screen which must be written off as some form of accident. I was […]

A blessing in disguise…An opportunity to prove our credentials.

December 15, 2015

I awoke in a sloppy haze, the flashes of sunlight creeping through my haggard curtains blindingly bright to the slither of reluctant acceptance that the dream realm was once more closed off and the Day must be faced. As is often the case I was riddled with sensations of unfinished business in the fast fading […]

Sevilla 1-0 Juventus – Profligate, yet spirited

December 9, 2015

If there was one player who would put us to the sword and still leave me smiling, or rather, avoiding the eagerness to roar and smash the screen, it was Llorente. I have always liked the Spaniard, not just for his selfless build-up play, ability to bring others into an attacking move and his outstanding […]
