Our basic plan of operation is to advance and to keep on advancing regardless of whether we have to go over, under, or through the enemy.

June 2, 2017

The eve of the battle. I am haggard, my snout bandaged after a recent mauling from my beloved hellhound. I move through the normal motions, from global affairs to warming my amorous innards by reaching out towards still burning flames of the heart to following leads unearthed in my delvings of Russian literature, most recent […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

Juventus win 33rd scudetto

May 3, 2015

We have been in haphazard form of late. Due mainly to injuries and a constantly changing side. Other than which, our finest, most dynamic player in Pogba has been sidelined. However, the sign of a truly great team is to win and succeed when not playing well. And we have that now. No longer does […]
