The case of Szczęsny’s goalkeeping mayhem

After a forgettable 2020 season with Juventus and a disastrous Euro campaign, Wojciech Szczęsny's first match of the new season against Udinese wasn't the most memorable one. It isn't the first time we bottled the lead and failed to bring the 3 points home due to mistakes by our Number-1 keeper. Despite being in control the whole game, he collapsed again, which cost us the win. No one knows how the winner of 2019-20 'Serie A Goalkeeper of the year' became a shadow of himself. Therefore, I have decided to take a closer look at the whole situation. Where did everything go wrong ? Szczęsny was never the best goalkeeper in the world, but in my opinion, he definitely made the Top 10. Since the last season, however, the Polish player has been marred with inconsistencies a...

While the transfer window is filled with "next week" news every week, I have decided to keep the current hot topic at rest and look at the events that could happen in the next transfer window in the summer of 2022. It is time to analyse the players under expiring contracts and explore the probability of them leaving or staying. Paulo Dybala Although La Joya's contract is about to expire next year, it is no secret that the player is set for an imminent contract extension in the following weeks. As per Romeo Agresti, recently, the third meeting ended between Juventus & Dybala’s entourage. His agent, Jorge Antun, presented a counter-proposal to the Bianconeri.
