Opinion: The reasons behind Juventus’s punishment when there are no ‘plusvalenza’ regulations

After waiting for ten long days, the Italian Football Federation, FIGC, released their reasoning for why they have deducted 15 points from Juventus in the current league standings. Not a single place does the FIGC refer to a transaction, document or anything else that can be considered as "real proof" of their decision. So we are dealing with a bit of a soap opera and Juventus will surely appeal this decision made by FIGC. It will be interesting to follow the development of this story, but actually there has already been a similar case investigating the use of plusvalenza. In the early 2000s many Italian clubs resorted to the use of plusvalenza and among them was Milan and Inter. But also clubs such as Roma, Lazio, Cheivo, Cesena, Parma and Perugia took advantage of this quick fix...

Opinion: This was Juventus’ worst effort of the season

Juventus's loss to Monza yesterday was a new low for the once mighty club. The effort was embarrassing, with some players looking like they were sleepwalking through the game. The mistakes that led to goals were amateurish, and the manager's use of substitutions was questionable. Max Allegri's tactics and training methods are under scrutiny, as it is difficult to understand how a team of such quality could play with so little effort. The players' lack of motivation is concerning, and it is unclear what the manager is doing to address the issue. It is clear that changes need to be made if Juventus wants to regain its status as one of the top teams in Italian football. Federico Chiesa is the only player who should be considered untouchable. He should be the focal point of the club's fu...

Juventus fans on Twitter want ‘untouchable’ Fagioli to keep his place despite Pogba’s return

Juventus fans have on Twitter been eagerly awaiting the return of midfielder Paul Pogba, who has been out with an injury for several weeks. Now that he's back and ready to play, the question on everyone's mind is whether or not Nicolo Fagioli should retain his starting spot in the lineup. Fagioli, a young Italian midfielder, has been impressing fans and coaches alike with his performances in recent matches. But with Pogba's return, the question of who should start in midfield has become a hot topic among Juventus supporters. To get a sense of what the fans are thinking, we reached out to several Juventus supporters and asked them for their opinion on the matter. https://twitter.com/emaxstatman/status/1619403489528119297?s=46&t=LKVvr4i0OSwluF_cZb8R6Q Many fans preferre...

Survey showed that most Juventus fans are against Rabiot contract renewal

Two weeks ago, ilbianconeri.com conducted a survey asking whether Juventus should renew the contract of midfielder Adrien Rabiot. The results showed that 66.7% of voters were against the renewal, while the remaining 33.3% were in favor. However, a lot has changed for the Juventus club in the past two weeks. The team was handed a 15-point penalty in the capital gains case, which dropped them from second place to the middle of the table. This unexpected and difficult situation will likely change many of the club's strategies on the market. Rabiot's contract expires at the end of the season, and despite his impressive performances in the first half of the season, the club was considering renewing his contract, which seemed unlikely just a few months ago. Despite the challenges, Ju...

Opinion: Juventus must prioritize the Europa League over Serie A to secure next season’s Champions League spot

Juventus is currently facing a difficult situation with a 15-point deduction and the possibility of further sanctions, which makes their path to securing a Champions League spot for next season uncertain. While there is still hope for the club and their fans, as there are appeals to come that might give Juventus some hope in overcoming this situation, it is not worth taking that risk as the appeal process won't take place for a few more months. In light of this, it is clear that the club must prioritize the Europa League over Serie A in order to have a chance at playing in the Champions League next season. This means that Juventus must field their top team in every Europa League match and give it their all. The club must also make sure that they are well-prepared and well-equipped to fa...

Opinion: Juventus played good football on Sunday, it’s time to come together!

Juventus' recent 3-3 draw against Atalanta has raised questions about the team's ability to overcome their current 15 point deduction in the standings and qualify for the Champions League. However, despite the disappointment of the result, it is important to remember that there is still a long way to go in the season and Juventus has the potential to make a comeback. One of the key factors that will determine whether Juventus can make a comeback is their style of play. In the match against Atalanta, Juventus showed that they have the ability to play an attacking and exciting brand of football. This attacking style of play will be crucial if Juventus hopes to overcome their current deficit and make it into the top four. Another important factor that will play a role in Juventus' succe...
What makes Italian prosecutors so corrupt?

What makes Italian prosecutors so corrupt?

Italian prosecutors have long been accused of corruption, with some critics claiming that the system is plagued by political influence and a lack of transparency. One major issue is the close relationship between prosecutors and politicians. In Italy, prosecutors are appointed by politicians, and many have close ties to the parties in power. This can lead to a lack of independence and impartiality, as prosecutors may be more likely to pursue cases that align with the political agenda of their patrons. Another issue is the lack of oversight and accountability. In Italy, prosecutors have a great deal of autonomy and are not subject to the same level of oversight as in other countries. This has led to a lack of transparency and accountability, making it difficult for the public to hold ...

Opinion: The legacy of Agnelli and what the future could hold for him

Andrea Agnelli's tenure as President of Juventus Football Club has come to an end, and as we reflect on his time at the helm of one of the most successful and well-known clubs in the world, it is clear that his legacy will be one of sustained success on the field and growth off the field. On the field, Agnelli oversaw a period of dominance for Juventus, with the club winning nine consecutive Serie A titles and four Coppa Italia titles under his leadership. He also oversaw the team's success in Europe, with Juventus winning two Europa League titles and one Champions League title during his tenure. These achievements solidify Agnelli's legacy as a president who led the team to unparalleled success in Calcio history. Off the field, Agnelli's legacy is one of growth...

Opinion: If Allegri get’s sacked, its time to bring in a non Italian manager

Juventus has had a string of underwhelming performances in the past few years, and it's clear that something needs to change. One way to shake things up and bring a fresh perspective to the team would be to hire a non-Italian manager, specifically Jurgen Klopp. Klopp is one of the most successful and innovative managers in the game today. He led Borussia Dortmund to two Bundesliga titles and a Champions League final before taking over at Liverpool, where he guided the team to a Premier League title (first in 30 years) and a Champions League win. He is known for his dynamic and high-energy style of play, which emphasizes pressing, quick transitions, and fluid attacking play. The Italian league, Serie A, has been criticized for being too defensive and slow-paced. By hirin...

Opinion: Why the Super League is essential for the future of Juventus and European Football

The idea of a European Super League, featuring the continent's elite clubs, has been floated for years. Recently, the topic has been brought back to the forefront with the announcement of the formation of the Super League, featuring 12 of Europe's top clubs, including Juventus. There are several reasons why Juventus and other top clubs believe that the Super League is necessary for the future of European football. First and foremost, the Super League would provide a more competitive and exciting format for fans. The current Champions League format, featuring a group stage followed by knockout rounds, can become predictable and lackluster. The Super League would feature the best teams from across Europe playing each other on a regular basis, creating more meaningful and exciting matches ...

Why Juventus need to make Cristiano Giuntoli their new sporting director

Cristiano Giuntoli is a highly experienced and successful sporting director who has worked at several top Italian clubs, including Napoli, Fiorentina, and Sampdoria. He has a proven track record of identifying and signing talented players who can help teams compete at the highest level. For example, while at Napoli, Giuntoli helped to build a squad that won the Coppa Italia and finished second in Serie A, and also signed players like Dries Mertens who became one of the greatest Napoli players of all time, and Arkadiusz Milik who now has become a key player for Juventus. One of the main reasons why Giuntoli would be a great fit for Juventus is his ability to identify and sign young, talented players. Juventus has a strong tradition of promoting young players from its youth academy, but i...

Opinion: After being embarrassed by Napoli, this loss could seal Allegri’s fate

The 5-1 loss to Napoli was not only a significant defeat for Juventus, but it also highlighted some of the team's shortcomings and weaknesses. The team's defense was exposed, and they were unable to deal with Napoli's attacking play. They were also unable to create many scoring opportunities and were outplayed throughout the match. Additionally, the loss to Napoli was the team's worst defeat in nearly a decade and it put them in a difficult position in the league. The defeat also came at a time when Juventus had already been struggling this season, with several poor performances and results. Furthermore, the loss to Napoli also highlighted some of the issues that have been plaguing Juventus for some time, including a lack of tactical flexibility, a lack of a clear style of play, and ...

Opinion: Why Del Piero needs to join Juventus management immediately

Del Piero, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest players in Juventus' history, is a true club legend. He spent 19 years at the club, scoring a record 290 goals in 705 appearances and winning six Serie A titles, four Coppa Italia trophies, and the UEFA Champions League. His contributions to the club on and off the field are immeasurable and he is still considered a role model for many young players. Del Piero's knowledge and understanding of the game are undeniable. He has a wealth of experience as a player and he has proven himself to be a leader both on and off the field. He has the ability to inspire and motivate those around him and he is a true professional who always puts the team first.

Opinion: Juventus should keep Rabiot at all costs, and here’s why

Juventus should keep Adrian Rabiot for several reasons. First, Rabiot has proven himself to be a valuable asset to the team. Since joining Juventus in 2019, he has consistently demonstrated his ability to control the midfield and dictate the pace of the game. He also has a strong work ethic and is a tireless runner, which helps to create space for his teammates. Second, Rabiot is still relatively young at 25 years old and has a lot of potential for growth. He has already shown that he can be a key player for Juventus and with more experience, he could become even more influential on the field. Third, keeping Rabiot would also be beneficial for Juventus in terms of squad depth. Rabiot is a versatile player who can play in multiple positions in midfield, which would give the team mo...

A pragmatic person's realm is results and consequence" according to Websters dictionary.

Juventus have sacked its entire board, So what comes next?

What is going so wrong for Juventus at the moment?

Juventus have made a very slow start to the new season, having won only two of their eight games this season. What is going so wrong for the Bianconeri at the moment? If you're Vlahovic, one of the best strikers in world football right now but you rarely receive the ball in a good position. You must be really fed up with your manager. The question I had ask Allegri is what is your  team doing really well right now, what is it that you can hang your hat on and say this is what we're going to do. I don't think you can watch Juventus play and come to a conclusion to what they do really well. There is nothing in this team that gives you the sort of feeling that this is a group that is getting better, improving every day. I'm not sure what Allegri wants from this side. This is really concern...

Juventus are in a crisis. Not just Allegri but Agnelli needs to go also.

This is an opinion I take no pleasure in writing, I had taken a slight hiatus from writing these types of pieces and wasn't planning my return until I was to evaluate Juventus manager Max Allegri's first 9 matches of the season, enough for me to see if he is the man to truly go forward with this team, but I had to change those plans tonight as after Juve's 2-1 defeat at home to Benfica, a match that once again saw the all to familiar good start, with 15 minutes of total grinta, which than leads to boring, uninspiring football, that creates littles chance and sees the Bianconeri get completely dominated, at home none the less, but was it really at home? More on that to come. There is no doubt Juventus is in crisis and to lower the temperature Juventus need to sack Allegri now before more...

Retrospective: What Juve could have done better against PSG and must do moving forward

The following article is in colabriation with our friends over at The Goalpost. For the European football coverage follow them over @TGoalpost.  Juventus succumbed to a narrow 2-1 loss against Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday, continuing their underwhelming start to the season. PSG's first-half dominance was enough, as Kylian Mbappe bagged a sublime brace as the Bianconeri struggled to get into the game in the opening 45 minutes. Weston McKennie halved the deficit in the second-half, and Juve were much more solid overall, even posing some danger to Christophe Galtier's side, which is seen as one of the favourites to win the competition this season. While this is only Juve's first defeat of the season, it has been coming for a while, as they have so far failed ...

Key takeaways from Juventus’ performance in Florence

Juventus were indeed very disappointing in their 1-1 draw vs Fiorentina. The Bianconeri only managed one shot on target in the whole game. Juve have only managed to win two of their five league games so far this season which is simply not good enough, but not only the results have been unconvincing, the performances as well have been disappointing. We know Masimmiliano Allegri is a pragmatic manager who does not like to risk a lot but sitting back and playing for a draw in the second half against Fiorentina is just not acceptable. Juventus failed take a single shot in the second half, no intent at all to try to win the game from Max Allegri's side.

Juventus have given Allegri enough resources to make them successful again

Juventus have undergone a huge squad overhaul this summer - adding six new players to the first team. Di Maria and Pogba — although he's currently injured — are big signings by the club. Both players joined as free agents. In Bremer, Juventus signed the best possible replacement of Matthjis De Ligt. The inclusion of Filip Kostić, Arkadiusz Milik and Leandro Paredes have strengthen the squad depth as well. Despite losing some big names likes Paulo Dybala, Matthjis De Ligt, Giorgio Chiellini and Alvaro Morata. The squad looks much stronger than that available to Massimiliano Allegri last season. I believe the current Juventus' squad is good enough to compete and win the Scudetto. Juventus have not been close to the title in last two seasons, finishing fourth each time. The squad ...

Juventus signing De Ligt has proved out to be a big failure

Matthjis De Ligt has joined Bayern Munich after spending three years at Juventus but was Juventus signing De Ligt a success or failure? "There could only be two reasons why Juventus signed De Ligt, one to compete for Champions League immediately with Cristiano in the side, but that did not happen, Juventus have suffered three consecutive round of 16 exits in the Champions League. Second, he'd be a leader in the defence for many years and obviously that didn't happen as well. De Ligt left Juventus after just three years. All in all, Juventus signing De Ligt has proved out to be a big failure."

Why losing De Ligt is not a blow for Juventus by any means

Matthjis De Ligt is set to leave Juventus this summer - the dutch international is linked heavily with a move to Bayern Munich and Chelsea. Is loosing De Ligt a blow to Juventus? "I don't think loosing De Ligt is a blow to Juventus in any way. The real blow would be if they don't use this money well. Some will say how is loosing your best defender not a big blow? The answer to this is, De Ligt was our best defender because Chiellini and Bonucci were towards the end of their careers and other than that we have Rugani so being Juve's best defender is not difficult today. De Ligt's time at Juventus hasn't been great, he had a difficult time with handballs, I don't know if it's bad luck or something with the positioning of his arm while dealing with crosses or sliding, also he made so...

Matthjis De Ligt has been linked heavily to Chelsea, the London club are looking to make a big shot in defence and De Ligt is seen as the Blue's priority. Juventus don't want to sell the dutch centre back but the contract situation is forcing them to open the door a bit. As per reports, Chelsea's first offer of €40-45M + Timo Werner was rejected. Juventus like Werner but consider the fee to be too low. The Bianconeri are holding out for a huge fee, this is making Chelsea consider other options, such as Jules Kounde, Nathan Ake and Koulibaly.
