Farken Quagliarella, a shame about the loss..

We will never fully decide who has won the football.

Apparently, PSG has made a 10 million Euro bid for Pirlo.  Not good enough for a player with two years still in contract!  Milan fans must be paying close attention to Inter right now.

 

Still not sure where Del Piero is going.  Perhaps to Arsenal, as a replacement for RVP?  Bit of a step down in clubs, but at his age a player has to take what he can get...

Yeah.. PSG can try, I think Pirlo will demand a much higher transfer at the moment, regardless of his age.

 

I remember seeing a rumour about Del Piero going to the MLS a while ago.

 

Squad is looking pretty beefy at the moment..

Not that I ever want to talk bout the Gobbi, but I do appreciate Del Piero as one of the greatest and a true 'flag' for Juve - as we would say.

Last I heard he had received an offer from Thailand on a rumoured 10 Million EURO for two years as well as quite a few offers from the Middle East.

But he was waiting for an offer from LA or NY apparently as he has been to USA previously and would like to try his luck there.

He would tear the comp apart.

Del Piero news goes here until he finds a new club.  Maybe still here after that. :)

Lucio seems determined to "do a Pirlo" - "we’re out to try to win all 3 of the competitions we’re playing in"

Lucio would be doing a 'Pirlo' as in Inter didn't want him anymore?

 

Bit shit a reason of his for signing is about winning trophies... don't expect a champs league title from Juve mate..

"Doing a Pirlo" means going from Milan to Turin on a free and having a spectacular season.  I don't see anything wrong with Lucio wanting trophies more than a fat salary (as I suspect he's taken a pay cut in the process).  Speaking of paycuts, Buffon is being asked to accept one in return for a two-year extension.

I think Juve can do well in the CL this year, hopefully as far as the semis.  The favourites are still the Spanish giants, of course.

Finally, there's a rumour that Del Piero is going to Watford, though I think it's just Zola hype.

Del Piero going to Watford would be like having a sheet of silked dragged through mud haha. 

 

Don't think it will happen, I really can't think straitly of where he will end up, to many rumors. Come to the Phoenix....

Rumors are Juve after RVP and Suarez.. Realllllly not keen on either of those players.

Wherever Del Piero goes, miracles will happen.

 

I'm OK with either of those two.  Or both.  Definitely need more strength in attack, and they would offer it.  Granted, Suarez is crazy, but the Italian press won't bait him the same way that the English media have.

If they're both less of a premadonna than they were in the EPL I'll be fine with it. Though it is most likely that City will be the crazy ones to pay out 25 mil for RVP.

Woah.  I didn't realise that Juventus have already spent 50 million Euros in the transfer window to date!  The second biggest spenders are Napoli, at less than 29 million.

Juve's spending so far: Ghanaian forward Richmond Boakye from Genoa for a fee of 4m; Defender Alberto Masi from Pro Vercelli for a fee of 0.8m; Brazilian defender Lucio on a free transfer from Inter Milan; Goalkeeper Nicola Leali from Brescia for a fee of 3.8m; French midfielder Paul Pogba from Manchester United; Ghanaian midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah from Udinese for a fee of 9m; Chilean defender Mauricio Isla from Udinese for a fee of 9.4m; Midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini from Cesena for a fee of 4m; Forward Sebastian Giovinco from Parma for a fee of 11m; Uruguayan defender Martin Caceres from Sevilla for a fee of 8m.

FFP sure is crazy when only one team in the league owns its stadium.  Good thing that one team is Juventus!

Supposedly the chase for RVP is over, and Jovetic is the new target.

Hope all you 'Rubentus' fans out there have watched the game last night. I'm as far from a Napoli supporter as it gets, but it's the it looks like the same old shit went on in Beijing.

How about that 10 month ban eh?
And Conte went to Court asking for full acquittal. What a joke my country has become.

Juventus get their first win of the pre-season in a 2–1 victory over Tottenham. Goals from the ever reliable Dybala and from Benatia on his debut.

GoalsDybala 6'Benatia 14'; Tottenham goalLamela 67'.

Next pre-season matches:

  • 30 July, South China AA in Hong Kong.
  • 7 August, West Ham in London.
  • 14 August, Cologne in Linz, Austria.
  • 17 August, Juventus Primaveria (Youth) at home.

The number of goals Benatia scores for a central defender is quite something. He'll be the first player picked for my Fantasy Serie A team this season...
