The Spanish Inquisition – Seville v Juventus Preview

December 7, 2015

When the draw was announced for the group stage of the Champions League I will admit I was a little worried. And this was before I watched us slump into a lethargy on the field domestically as the season drew close enough to embrace. For Man City with their billions bankrolling a fine selection of […]

Juve sign Alisson?

December 6, 2015

Gianluigi Buffon is not only a legend of the game, one of the finest goalkeepers ever to don gloves, he is also continuing to perform impeccably at the top level. He has proven a Titan for the sportĀ and our club and we are so very fortunate to have him. His passion for Juve, his regal […]

Lazio 0 – 2 Juventus

December 5, 2015

Player Ratings Buffon Evergreen and majestic. Santo Buffon had a quiet night. Came for crosses with authority, handled the two shots which went straight at him with ease and tried to play the ball out short from the back whenever possible. Untested. 7 Lichsteiner Never troubled, firm in the challenge and tried to support the […]

Palermo 0 -3 Juventus

November 30, 2015

Palermo 0 – 3 Juventus Entering this game with a semblance of form and confidence after despatching Man City mid-week and our recent results – if not our performances – improving domestically Allegri decided to stick with the 3-5-2 swapping only the wide men. In came Evra and Cuadrado for Lichsteiner and Sandro. Setting themselves […]

mangled muttering – Can juve turn the corner?

November 10, 2015

I suspect you would have got brilliant odds on Juve finding themselves 9 points off top with 12 games played, having only just managed to scrape together back to back victories for the first time season, in November. Yet does the recent run suggest an upturn in form is on the horizon? My instinct is […]

And so it begins…At last.

October 5, 2015

Finally it seems almost safe to look upon the season with hope. It has taken 6 weeks of torment, our worst start to a league campaign for 40 years and we find ourselves 10 points off the summit. Yet still, I am sure I am not alone in sensing a change in our fortunes. Losing […]

The trouble with Juventus…

September 15, 2015

It has indeed been a truly wretched start to the season. Whilst my focus has been very much elsewhere the tribalism I feel towards the club has remained potent enough to maintain a keen vigil even when consumed with other happenings. Supporting a club is supporting a cause, perhaps not the most righteous or heart-felt, […]

Juventus 3-1 Napoli 23rd May 2015

May 24, 2015

I have never liked Napoli as a football club. Surely would be of a different opinion had I seen themĀ  when Maradona was there as to not support Diego would have been to not support the game, as he was a god of the art. Yet that is not the Napoli I know. Their players, […]

Will Pogba leave Juventus?

May 13, 2015

  Pogba is the most naturally gifted player I have seen at such a young age, not just in our colours but in any colours, since Zidane appeared from Bordeaux. He is already one of the finest offensive midfielders in the game and has huge scope for improvement. I would be bothered to see him […]

Juventus 2-1 Real Madrid

May 6, 2015

What began as a huge cloud of anxiety dominating the skyline was blown away with the first kick of the game revealing a night where finally once again we could see Juve stars shining as brightly as any other above. Allegri had stunned a fair few with his selection of Vidal as the trequartista and […]
