Juventus 1-0 Bologna: Scudetto Getting Closer And Closer

17th win at home, 90 points, six (or less) away from clinching Scudetto. Bologna really parked the bus, at times there were eight men in the box, obviously exploiting their only weapon since they have so little offensive talent.

It took Juve the play of a superstar, our young superstar Paul Labile Pogba. We put up a siege right from the get go, switching from side to side, crossing a lot, but Bologna did their job defensively. The French midfielder had a small opening and took full advantage of that with a thunderous shot that Curci could not stop.

It was probably the best Juventus of recent times, even though we struggled to score. The support from the Juventus stadium was amazing and helped the team not to get discouraged after they were repelled from the brick wall built by Ballardini multiple times. It was a hard fought victory, therefore much sweeter.

Buffon: 6. He made only a real save on a Christodoulopouls shot from distance. His definitely did not have a busy night.

Barzagli: 6. He is clearly not in game shape and he needed to play. Once, He was outrun by Cristaldo on the flank, rarely you see that happen.

Ogbonna: 7. Overwhelmingly physical against the opponents. Very attentive. He looked like Torino’s Ogbonna, maybe for the first time since he is at Juve. A beast.

Chiellini: 6.5. He didn’t have much to do but he was dominant on the areal duels and this helped Juventus a lot especially after the goal.

Isla: 6.5. He run and he crossed a lot, even though not always precisely. He was sharp on that flank and only a superb Curci save denied him the goal.

Pogba: 7.5. He solved the game, plain and simple. A couple of monstrous runs, precise passing, the best Pogba we have seen in a while.

Pirlo: 6.5. He wasted a couple of free kick that he could have scored. Man, he really set the bar high. He was heavily marked but, differently from the last games, he wandered a lot around the pitch to find room.

Marchisio: 6.5. He fought today, he took many hits, but just kept doing what he was doing. He spent a lot of time near the box, but he didn’t have much luck there.

Asamoah: 6. Probably he was a bit fatigued, all in all he was the only one not to rest and carried the team in some occasions. He was not bad, but neither he was not on his usual standards.

Llorente: 7. He touched so many balls, always intelligently. He created so much by protecting and distributing, but today they couldn’t feed him with the right ball.

Giovinco: 6.5. He was in constant motion, but, as the spaces were really crowded by gigantic defenders, he struggled to as incisive as in the last matches. Nevertheless, a good performances.

Padoin: 6. He made a good cross that Pogba could have buried. Enough for me.

Vidal: no rating.

7/10
Juventus were dominating today and it was clear right from the beginning. We would have been happier with a larger result of course, but you really can’t ask for a much better performance against a side that defensive. A little tension in the very last seconds, but Bologna really were never dangerous.

        • DutchJuve

          I’m sure Del Piero would love all that, but he has his training hours which would get in the way of atleast 95% of the things you wanna do with him.

          Also, i think calling someone on the phone 17 times a day falls under stalking aswell.

            he d make time for me.

            and its cool because after how much fun he ll have with me, he d be the one calling me 17 times a day

          • DutchJuve

            Knowing you, you’d still call him 17 times a day along with him calling you 17 times a day, that would make you guys talk 34 times a day :o

        true story.

        • JanJuveNL

          That´s not really weird for a winger.

        • Marc Dominic Zaroli

          Yes because of course I was saying that as a genuine worry.. Obviously not, it’s hardly something thats done often..

        • DutchJuve

          I can already see the headlines. Juventus win the 2017 Champions League with a 4-0 win over Bayern Munich. Berardi scored all 4 goals!

          I can dream, can’t i :D

          • Marc Dominic Zaroli

            ‘Adp1974 wrong yet again! Berardi gets 4!’

          • adp1974

            why in 2017? why not 2015?

          • DutchJuve

            Because Berardi most likely won’t be with us yet in 2015.

    Well, looks like Juve will win the Scudetto at home against Atalanta. Now for Benfica !

  • adp1974

    random thoughts …

    Juve will win 4 scudetti in a row … atleast.

    I noticed Matri didnt start for fiorentina today … he’s shit, always was.

    • Marc Dominic Zaroli

      I’m not so sure about the 4 scudetti in a row but matri was sh*t however he wasn’t always. He was good before he came to us and when he first started here but just can’t handle the pressures of a competitive club.

      • adp1974

        he stinks…

        • Papilaya(John)™★★★

          i disagree. he strikes me as someone who d smell s’wonderful… youre telling me someone with such well conditioned hair stinks? i dont think so :p

          • DutchJuve

            Fag.

          • Papilaya(John)™★★★

            i am not

          • DutchJuve

            You’re saying Matri smells nice, without ever having smelled him. That means you’re in love with him.

          • Papilaya(John)™★★★

            genius conclusion. im sorry i doubted you.

          • Marc Dominic Zaroli

            You know Dutch isn’t in touch with his feminine side (because he’s afraid he may enjoy it and finally cave to his homosexual feelings)

          • Papilaya(John)™★★★

            oh i already know :p but his reactions are always hilarious.

          • DutchJuve

            You’re welcome.

          • DutchJuve

            Oh please….

          • RUDY ARIS

            Lmao, this whole day I’ve been going on fag tirades, now I see this.

        • DutchJuve

          Like Marc said, he just couldn’t handle the pressure. Kind of a nicer version of Amauri. Matri was pretty good at Cagliari and at his first season with us he was the main goalscorer of the 2nd half of 2010/11 season. That was when we were midtable though. So again, that shows he can only handle a midtable team.

      • RUDY ARIS

        A mid to lower level Serie a team was always where his future lay. He was never that good to be quite honest.

        • Papilaya(John)™★★★

          he was a great poacher, but had putrid technique. he could be a 15-20 goal scoring striker(per season), but his stint with us scarred him terribly.

          • RUDY ARIS

            oh, i was just taking a jab at mark; copying what he said about Sorensen on the previous thread. I’m looking to go to war against him. I’m getting quite sick of him honestly. Apparently any player we like whom isn’t italian just exhausts us by their likability to the point where we are blown away by them, even though they were never great. And they don’t really have much talent to be on the Juve squad anyways. Ask him, who would be rather have, Vidal or Verrati. Let that convince you.
            For the record, I like Mitra Matri.

          • Marc Dominic Zaroli

            Wow how pathetic rody. Matri was good for a mid table side which is exactly what I said so your jab is hardly a jab when it’s saying what I’m saying (damn you’re bad at this). Sorensen was always going to be a player for a mid table side at best and that is where he plays his football (shocking that..) I’d say I’m sorry that you are offended by the truth but I’m not, because I’m getting quite sick of you honestly.

            They are very different players but while we have pirlo around Vidal is of more use to us so Vidal.

          • RUDY ARIS

            Oh, young innocent Murc, an apology from you is the last thing I need. I can’t believe you haven’t used “Ruby,” that would seem the most obvious to me. Mmm I think you should pull up the definition of the word “exactly,” because that is not, in fact, “exactly” what you said. So don’t pretend that you weren’t on Matri’s nuts when he was here. I mean his hair, excuse me. Thankfully your version of the truth only exists in your head. Yes, iI am just itching for an online war of words. Take the bait, please.

          • Marc Dominic Zaroli

            Hahahah oh wow.. You do make me laugh with how little of a life you have. Also hair is sexy as. So yeah can’t argue with that I do love his hair. Enjoy your war. (Once again, how pathetic are you ruzy?) That is all.

          • RUDY ARIS

            haha, oh Marcy, why do you ASSume that anyone who doesn’t agree with you and makes it a point to argue with you doesn’t have a life? What can I say, it’s a really slow day at work. I wish the WC was on already. Well, I’m not so pathetic as to have the need to validate myself to others because I have the best education money can buy, my girlfriend is a model, and I spend my nights at gay bars. I think I will call you Narcissus from now on.

          • Papilaya(John)™★★★

            peace not war! jeez Easter was just yesterday, the sense of joy should still be in the air

          • Marc Dominic Zaroli

            It’s still easter Monday my fellow man and there is plenty of joy over here but then there always is because I know you! (and Dutch of course in case he reads this :p)

          • DutchJuve

            As a matter of fact, i did read it! It’s not monday anymore though :(

          • Papilaya(John)™★★★

            awww you :D

            anyways, the next part is a reply to Rudy because i had to do other things and couldnt finish my reply to him earlier:

            i feel all youre doing is trolling Marc very harshly, but if youre not; i dont know why youre so bothered by his difference in opinion. Adp1974 sometimes makes it seem that he hates Conte and we disagree on other topics, but i love the guy; hes hilarious. now to go back to the main topic: Marc has a right to think Obgonna has more potential than Sorenson. Obgonna was once the most highly rated young italian Cb while Sorenson was just highly rated amongst us Juve fans and honestly, i see more potential in Obgonna too, im just less expressive of it because im not the biggest Obgonna advocate.

            everyone here has their different opinions, its just that there is a mainstream opinion(i.e. Caceres, Vidal, Sorenson etc) and Marc s opinions arent so mainstream. does that make them wrong? no. does that give you a right to declare war on him and personally insult him? no. this world was meant for diversity and difference in opinion, and one should not be declared “war” against for it. just look at all the trouble in this world. this world is full of war and is so f*cked up because people cant except each other for who they are. kids are beat up, verbally abused and pushed towards suicide or depression because they have the gift of difference. are you gonna be an advocate of this behavior?

          • DutchJuve

            ”this world was meant for diversity and difference in opinion”

            This world is meant for us to sleep in the woods and sniff eachothers asses too, but that aint happening anymore either, is it?
            I’m sorry i just had to say it.

            Rudy is going too far, but i can somewhat understand him. Marc seems to always give Italian players some extra credit over foreign players. It doesn’t bother me that much that i would attack him, i would never do that, unless he cheats on me ofcourse. But denying Sorensen had great talent is just weird. He showed he could handle big stars at a time our team was complete shit. That says something.

          • Papilaya(John)™★★★

            im sorry but what!? :p

            where did you read that we were meant to sniff each others asses? yea we were meant to be more one with nature, but being different is a more serious topic imo. no matter what we do, people will never be exactly the same and expecting that is ridiculous.

          • DutchJuve

            That is true. Expecting everyone is the same as you is ridiculous, and everyone being the same would make the world too boring to live in. They are actually getting close to that already with all guys looking like Bieber and all girls looking like Barbie nowadays. It’s quite annoying. I like different people.
            I used to get mad when people disagreed with me, but it’s stupid to get mad over that.

            And yes we used to sniff eachothers asses alot. Just like dogs :D Well okay, maybe we were abit more intelligent than dogs since we (apparently) already made some kind of clothes when we were in the cavemen era. It just popped into my head and sounded too funny not to say.

          • Papilaya(John)™★★★

            please, whenever you have a random thought in your head, do not hesitate to share :p

          • RUDY ARIS

            LMAO at the the first couple of sentences.

          • RUDY ARIS

            I am sitting here smiling as I type replies to him. I would never hurt Marc, and I know my posts don’t hurt him either, but let me be clear, I meant what I said. I hated the times he replied to others with how educated and rich and popular he is. I would not befriend this individual. His opinions on our foreign players just annoy me; hence my trolling.

          • Papilaya(John)™★★★

            dammit, i knew it! sorry for intervening, carry on :p

            but i cant tell if Marc was trolling back; its not easy to read minds over the internet!

          • DutchJuve

            *starts reading John’s mind*
            5 minutes later – done.

            You are thinking of Del Piero.

          • Marc Dominic Zaroli

            I’m not rich myself and I’d hardly class myself as popular, nor would I want to be popular. My opinions on foreign plays to a negative extent extends to 2 players who are majorly overrated on this site.

          • Marc Dominic Zaroli

            Oh so you have to ‘declare war’ on people because they have a differing opinion on players all I can say to that is oh dear.. But hey, you do whatever makes you feel better about that sad little life of yours.

          • RUDY ARIS

            “You have no life,” “sad little life of yours,” *smh* give me better than that. You’re just being lazy now.

      not junk ahah

      • DutchJuve

        Addicts are called junkies.

        • Hanna

          who said “addicts”?

          • DutchJuve

            I did. But people who use it frequently are called junkies, which makes it junk.

          • Hanna

            hmmm, using it frequently don’t make you an addict…

          • JuventusBuffon

            Well using it to the point where you develop a dependency towards it, does. And when you develop a dependency, frequent use occurs thus making it an addiction.

          • Hanna

            that is true, im just sayin that i brush my teeth 2/3 a day and im not addicted

          • JuventusBuffon

            Well then again your not dependent on brushing your teeth. Its not your main need for the day.

          • Hanna

            so if someone smoke a blunt 2/3 times a day and the same time is not his main need for the day that makes him an addict? sorry for the off topic discussion

          • JuventusBuffon

            Well that’s what that person has to decide, are THEY addicted? Do they NEED that weed? If they find that they are building a dependency on weed, to the point that most of their day-to-day life is centered around it, then yes. But yeah this is pretty off topic considering this is a football site, but I have to say it’s a good discussion :)

          • Hanna

            i tottaly agree with you. maybe another day, it’s my time to go, good night *

          • adp1974

            i smoke atleast 2/3 blunts per day …. got to.

          • Hanna

            why you got to? i use to smoke, sometimes 2, sometimes 5, sometimes 0

          • DutchJuve

            You have people who need it and those are addicted. You also have people who don’t get addicted to it and they won’t need it. There are people who get into money problems for weed/harder drugs, i would say those are pretty addicted. It’s a fact that smoking is addicting. They warn alot for it, even on the cig boxes themselves.

          • Marc Dominic Zaroli

            When it’s an addictive substance it does..

          • Hanna

            i think addict is a strong word, me and my mom use to smoke, sometimes we smoke a lot, or not. i dont consider myself an addict. but can see you point

          • Papilaya(John)™★★★

            not really. people use nyquil frequently, but are hardly ever labelled as a nyquil addict. i would get into this more, but i JUST had this conversation with a few of my friends last night and i dont feel like going over the same things again.

          • Marc Dominic Zaroli

            Nyquill isn’t an addictive substance..

      • Hanna

        for what i heard, in the press conference when they asked him why he did that he said was because Luisao scored the goal, but the thing is that Luisao is number 4. he’s a good coach but a person of low level, i think

  • DutchJuve

    This is so stupid. Women shouldn’t be in the mens football game. Look at her, she is even wearing more tight clothes than guy officials. How can you even blame this coach?

    Sidenote: that club’s name is Juventus :D

    http://metro.co.uk/2014/04/19/brazilian-football-manager-in-hot-water-after-calling-lineswoman-a-hot-chick-4703448/

    • Marc Dominic Zaroli

      I disagree.. I don’t think women’s and men’s football should be considered equal or anything like that, however theres nothing to say women cant officiate just as well as male officials. If we’re to say no women then why no blacks? No gays? It’s all prejudice that has no effect on how they preform.. However I would say no skimpy outfits, agree there.

      • DutchJuve

        Like i said, women can’t officiate in mens games because of how they are. Not because they are women, but because they get butthurt when something like this gets yelled at them. There is women football for a reason, let them stay there. They belong there. Or do you wanna see it mixed up? Women and mens football in 1 game.
        Blacks, gays and women are all something completely different. Black is a race, women is a gender. Gays can do well as long as they keep their sexuality apart from their work. Women however can’t keep their gender apart from their work, and this proves it. Football is a mens game and fans are animals. I think we can all agree on that. Ofcourse something is gonna be yelled at her yet she goes and complains to the brazilian fa right away. If anything, hot chick is a compliment if you put it against the things that get yelled to guy referee’s. No matter how you look at it, this just can’t work out in football, or any sport.

        • Marc Dominic Zaroli

          So do black players when people are racist to them.. Yet they are praised for being ‘brave’ when they complain about it. There is little difference? As I said women and mens football shouldn’t be considered equal because there’s a huge difference in physique. However there is no reason a woman linesman or referee cant do the same job. Yeah I think women who can’t take a few words being said about them shouldn’t be allowed to though. This girl is obviously doing it for her 15 seconds of fame, let’s face it dressing in those skimpy shorts she is inviting it. But I don’t think this is reason to stop women officiating as some could do just as good of a job as any referee on the go.

            But they are all like this. Thats just the way they are. And even a fully clothed women who is ugly as hell would get things yelled at her cuz of her gender. It just won’t work in this world. Why is there even female sports when they wanna get into men sports?

            Also, now you’re starting again about black players. That is completely irrelevant to this. The things a black guy gets yelled at him are insulting and hurts. As far as i know, saying someone is hot is a compliment. If a female fan would yell this at a guy playing football or officiating a match, he’d ignore it and it won’t be a big deal. This is just so damn stupid.

          • Marc Dominic Zaroli

            No they aren’t. Just as black people and gay people will get things shouted to them, that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be allowed to be a part of the sport. They don’t want to get into the male sport but they do want to officiate, I bet not all linesmen for women’s football are female.

            It’s completely relevant. Yes this whole issue is pathetic but I’m not using that for or against in my argument as that girl is ridiculous and shouldn’t be allowed to officiate. However women on the whole should be which is why my mention of black people in the sport is relevant.

          • DutchJuve

            How is it relevant? I don’t understand. Black guys are men. Women are women. They will both get things shouted at them, but black guys will get racist things shouted at them, women will get sex comments shouted at them. By the way, wasn’t there an issue where a player touched a female official’s breast some years ago? That’s exactly my point in this issue. It will eventually go so much further than just things getting shouted… Players will be thinking of other things than football.

        • RUDY ARIS

          • Marc Dominic Zaroli

            Normal is so boring

            You wanted to date Del Piero -.-

    • Papilaya(John)™★★★

      my goodness Dutch, youre such a cliché male :p

      i do think woman shouldnt involve their selves with mens football, but because more often than not, guys do not know how to respect a woman. for example, i just read yesterday that mercedes benz had to change the navigating system because men refused to take orders from a womans voice. thats so stupid. i rather avoid all the controversy.

      • DutchJuve

        Guys don’t know how to respect other guys either. Guys don’t know how to respect anything. Women is just one of the many things.
        I’m not that cliche that i’m gonna say they belong in the kitchen and not on a football field, but this proves they don’t belong in the mens football world. This is only the start. It will get much worse if more of them want to be one of the guys in this world. The worst thing is, these women aren’t women anymore, they are manly women and that is not natural. It’s just stupid……………

        • Papilaya(John)™★★★

          i agree, things will escalate which is something i rather avoid. itll just be another problem blown far out of proportion.

          • DutchJuve

            Yup and it will break the already broken world of football even more. How many more punches can it still take before it collapses?

            Dont worry mate, a woman isnt strong enough to make football collapse

        I am a poor human being for laughing at this.

          at what, the meredes benz thing? i laughed too. its too ridiculously stupid not to.

          • JuventusBuffon

      • DutchJuve

      I agree with you, but I would rephrase it a little bit.
      Little bitches shouldn’t be in football.

  • Papilaya(John)™★★★

    bye bye Moyes. wow, im sure theres a chance that like 80% of Man u fans have never witnessed their coach being sacked seeing as all, if not, most of their fans have come about in the last 5-10 years.

    • DutchJuve

      100% are glad they witnessed their coach being sacked though :p I wonder who they will take next. Van Gaal is named alot.

  • BelgianJuventino

    Reading comments to find out how good/bad the game was and not a single comment about that..xD Trolling and some more trolling xD Oh and just because I want to leave some sort of reply without getting a second war of words (wink wink Rudy and Marc :P), I don’t see why women cant officiate in men football. Any referee will get shit thrown at him/her, deal with it or dont officiate. I doubt its any better in women football.
    Anyway lets try the previous page for some comments about the game, I missed it xD

    • Papilaya(John)™★★★

      well i couldnt watch the match, so thats why :p… but really, im surprised not one person(besides the article) mentioned anything significant about the match. am i the only who gives a care about tactical analysts, who did what etc!? :p

      only in juvefc.com will you read about drugs/Easter and intense trolling :p

      • BelgianJuventino

        The previous thread was better, though it seems that Marc his opinion on Sorensen was the topic of the day :p
        I did laugh at the comments :p

        • RUDY ARIS

          Typically Marc’s opinion on anything is the topic of the day. He is quite controversial the lad is. He needs a devil’s advocate; that’s where I come in.

        Well to be quite honest there was nothing special about the last match, kind of a boring game.

      • dinodelfino

        lol

      • Marc Dominic Zaroli

        Who scored has all the stats for you, good sir

    • DutchJuve

      You don’t hear any shit in womens football because that doesn’t have fans. Women getting involved in football is the world being turned upside down, it aint in their nature.

      • Marc Dominic Zaroli

        Dutch you are so backwards when it comes to the subject of women

        • DutchJuve

          I just think women should be women and men should be men.

          • Marc Dominic Zaroli

            Yes but that doesn’t mean they can’t be women and not officiate football..

      • BelgianJuventino

        I actually know female football players, all of them perfectly “female”. They love the game just as much as we do. And they do have fans, they just don’t get the attention like male football does because obviously, males perform better due to the simple fact males are better suited for this. Performances however have nothing to do with the topic.

        Sorry to say so but what you say is really discriminating.

        • DutchJuve

          I’m not discriminating at all. I say it aint in their nature and that’s a fact. Why do you think they can’t do what guys can do in football? I wasn’t talking about playing football though. I’m fine with women playing football, as long as they stay in their minor women leagues. The topic somehow got changed to that. I was saying how women shouldn’t officiate a men’s game and yes the same goes the other way round, men shouldn’t officiate a womens game.

          What do you think will happen when women become first referee’s? They would have to go into the field with men all around them, what do you think will happen when a women gives a red card to a guy? 8/10 cases they would accept it, but you and i both know it will deliver more problems than with a guy referee.

          • BelgianJuventino

            So what, if they decide they want to do that? If a referee hands out a red card, he’ll get insulted in probably all cases, whats the difference? A female red card is less worthy or something? A player has no choice but to accept what the ref says, no matter what he thinks Refs are still protected by the league and if a player makes trouble, he gets a punishment, standard rules like always

          • DutchJuve

            Just think. A man doesn’t accept from women what he accepts from other men. That’s how it’s always been and always will be. It’s a natural thing and it occurs with animals too. People nowadays seem to forget that we are all animals in the end and no matter how hard we try, we won’t get around that.

            They will be punished, but rapists get punished too, yet it still happens.

          • BelgianJuventino

            Oh wow, I’m not wasting words on this anymore, this is mind baffling. I though only religious extremists had such backwards views on women but apparently not

          • DutchJuve

            I’m saying things that will happen, i’m not saying how i think of women. And what i’m saying is a fact. And no it’s not just religious extremists, although they play football too.

          • Peter

            The only mind baffling thing about this whole conversation is that you two (or all) are talking about different things. If I understand him correctly, Dutch doesn’t degrade women refs (or perhaps not in this comment), but the players who are men. Those men won’t be able to deal with the fact that the ref is ‘only a woman’. The ref needs to be respected, but please try to explain the meaning of respect for example for the 20 year old version of Rooney after this:
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8v6kzDGeBc
            Have fun with the enlightened, respectful debate.

            You can be as intelligent and open minded as you want to be, but you have to realize, that most of the players are not.

          • BelgianJuventino

            First it was that women shouldnt be allowed to ref in a football game played by men and his reason to justify it is that men wont accept a woman giving them calls that go against them, like a red card. We’re animals so no problem if we act like animals it seems. As your video shows, a player will react bad to it anyway. If this ref had been a woman, you think there’d be any difference? Doubt it.

            Looks like he’s afraid there will be situations with players treating female refs badly, which ofc will happen sometime. Not because they are women but because their call is in the players disadvantage. A ref needs to be respected, some players do that, others don’t. The gender of the ref is of zero importance and if players treat a ref disrespectful, they get a punishment.

            Or what, do people think a female ref will get raped if she shows a red card perhaps? As a ref I’m sure they’ve been trained to deal with agression, if they want to ref in men football there should be nothing that holds them back from doing that.

            I would applaud the introduction of female refs, they might just do a better job than a whole bunch of retards who make blatant mistakes all the time. We all know situations where a mistake by the ref changed a game, Ovrebo anyone?

          • Peter

            “you think there’d be any difference?”

            Yes actually, I do. I think people would swarm female refs more often than they do now. I can’t supply you with any kind of data on how men behave with women differently than they do with other men, but neither can you on the opposite I suppose, so there’s not much point in continuing this.

            “if players treat a ref disrespectful, they get a punishment.”
            Yes, and I think it would cause a lot of punishment, that wouldn’t happen simply because the ref has the same kind of genitals. Oh how fun it would be checking the refs before the game: “Oh no, not another woman .” Simply because (I think) players would get cards for arguing with a female ref more often than they do now.

            I don’t think they would get raped, but I do believe a harsh push can ground a woman easily, while it wouldn’t really affect a man. It would result in a red card both ways, but less drama.

            I’m against this simply because I just don’t want to deal with all the shitstorm this would cause.

          • BelgianJuventino

            I dont think so but that is indeed personal idea, not much use to discuss it since there is no logic behind it. Maybe in the start there would be some more punishment for it, I dunno. Not necessarily a bad thing, some players could use it to learn some self restrain.

            A harsh push can ground a ref but what does it matter, she would fall and he maybe wouldnt, so? If there’s a push it’s going to be a drama, doesnt matter if the ref falls or not.

            There is no shitstorm to come

          • Peter

            I’m quite tired to think clearly by now, but I will do my best.
            By drama and shitstorm around the players vs women refs issue, I meant that the same loud group of people (who seem to promote this gender equality kind of thing on any and every platform they can) would cause hundreds of pages of babbling, (un)intentionally distracting public (newspaper, forums, etc) football conversations about more important things such as corrupcy around cup hosting selections, moral questions (how can a slave-driver country with 0 infrastructure win a vote on hosting any event), technology related issues (cameras to help you decide if the ball is over the line or not), or the game’s development itself.

            Oh, back to the pushing thing: I meant more drama, as I think we would hear it more, that a player pushed a ref if she was a woman and fell than we would with a man ref.
            I think women refs would receive even more criticism in the beginning than men do, because fans, players, coaches (who mostly were players too) would simply try to defend their own gender’s relevancy or something.

            Sorry, too tired to continue, If I wasn’t clear enough somewhere, point it out, and I will write you back tomorrow sometime, trying to explain what I meant.

          • BelgianJuventino

            No argument there, we both have different things in our mind I see now :P

    • RUDY ARIS

      lol, well sorry, I kept trying to dispute the talent of our foreign players, and all he says is they are just likable, no examples no facts. No worries, there is no one else on here I’d argue with. I think about it, and it wasn’t really trolling; I was just calling it like it is.

      As for women officiating men’s games: The whole discussion emanated from a a story of a female ref in Brazil who reported one of the coaches cause he said she looked delicious. Apparently he didn’t say it directly at her. Most women will go through this if they participate in the men’s game, and will feel objectified and will report coaches and players no doubt. I will be fine with men and women officials in a coed league with coed lockers while they are at it. Most westerners have been duped into believing that gender neutrality and openness toward all sexual preferences is progress, but I tell you that there are many many many graver things going on in the world that demand our attention. Millions die of hunger each year. We want to find aliens or other life in space while there are diseases that we could find the cure to if we invested in finding it. Now there is a big debate on whether women should be involved in men’s sports. How about FIFA explain to us why Qatar, which has never been to a WC or even come close, will host the WC amid extreme heat. Why does a country which is on Human Rights radars for their extreme abuse of workers building their stadiums get a big grin from FIFA. So let FIFA assure me first that it is free from corruption. No, instead they want to make us look like idiots by arguing about this foolishness of female refs, whom should stick to reffing female leagues, in my opinion.

      • Marc Dominic Zaroli

        I said Sorensen was only ever destined for a mid-low level side and just look where he is.. I think that would chalk up as a bit of evidence for anyone with half a braincell (that obviously doesn’t include you). As for caceres the evidence and facts are in his performances and those are the only 2 I’ve said anything negative about. That’s hardly many, but I guess when you can barely count to 10 like you, 2 would class as quite a high number.

        • RUDY ARIS

          Yes! There you go! Personal insults is a good start. These are pretty lame ones, but it’s better than your previous works. I’d like some stats to compare Caceres and Ogbonna, like tackles per game and such. On field performance is all about perception obviously. We all think Padoin sucks and isn’t worth his weight in hay, and you think he does just fine coming off the bench.

          • DutchJuve

            ”We all think Padoin sucks and isn’t worth his weight in hay, and you think he does just fine coming off the bench.”

            Best example ever. Marc has started to realise Padoin is shit i think now, but he used to defend even him. And lets not forget Peluso.

          • Marc Dominic Zaroli

            I defend the fact they do little wrong, I’ve always agreed that they aren’t juve quality (aside from when Peluso was rightfully keeping Asamoah out the team.. But then it was only you saying he wasn’t)

          • Marc Dominic Zaroli

            Not insults, facts my friend. Get yourself onto whoscored and you will find those facts. Padoin isn’t of juve quality but we all know that, he doesn’t do anything fancy but he does little wrong so dosent deserve all the insults against him, which is what I say, you should really pay more attention if this ‘war’ of yours is ever going to go any better for you..

        • DutchJuve

          I still believe something went wrong in Sorensen’s progress. You can not turn a blind eye to how he did great against big players in 2010/11 season while our whole team was shit. He was the youngest on the team probably and at that moment one of the best we had.

          Still saying Caceres has bad performances is just dumb. Yes he has some errors, some which caused goals, and he will never be at the level of Chiellini, Barzagli and Bonucci, but he has also had very solid performances and you rather ignore those and look at his bad performances instead of both.

      • BelgianJuventino

        No need for sorry, was just weird reading this sudden “war” out of the blue :p (out of the blue for me, i was away for 4 days)
        Besides that, obviously I agree there are far worse things happening but i dont see the controversy in female refs. It seem to be men making a big deal out of it. The gender makes no difference, a referee will always have to endure insults to his or her person. Now we call him an asshole if he decides against us, with a woman it will be ‘look at that bitch’

        Female vs male team is wrong because it wouldnt be a fair game, but a referee.. Does that also mean a man cant officiate a women football game? Just by being male? Sounds prehistoric to me but thats just my opinion, I’m rather open minded.

        • RUDY ARIS

          well, i meant females and males on the same team, but you raise an interesting point. If there is such a thing as gender equality than a game of men vs women would be fair, or we would be saying that men are faster, stronger, and better than the women. Which may not be true.

          • BelgianJuventino

            I dont really get this point :P Gender equality has nothing to do with sport performances, no? Men are usually stronger and faster than women, doesn’t make them better human beings.

          • DutchJuve

            He didn’t say they are better human beings, he says they are better at sports, which is a fact. But if there is true equality, a game of men vs women wouldn’t be weird, would it? Yet if we did that and the guys win with 20-0, the women will go crying how it wasn’t a fair match.

          • BelgianJuventino

            Equality =/= level of performance in a sport, ofc men would win it. Equality is not the same thing as being on an equal level, i dont think you guys understand the meaning correctly. Equality is about treating a person the same, no matter the gender. Men are better at X, women are better at Y, but in the end they’re equals.

          • DutchJuve

            Ofcourse they are equal in human rights. You won’t find me saying they aren’t equal anywhere. Just in sports they should be seperated because it will bring problems.

        • RUDY ARIS

          as far as the “war”, that was brought on when Marc replied to John saying that I am a dreadful troll. I’ve wanted to troll him since then.

  • ImSoCool12345

    Hahahahha United think Conte can be brought over from us. They think United have more appeal than Juve for coaches currently. They may have more financial appeal but at this moment Juve is one of the fastest growing teams and there’s no way Conte would just leave.

        • DutchJuve

          This. I don’t know if Gabbiadini is ready next season, but i want Immobile back for next season. He has shown he can finish and i think he’s ready for Juve now. Thank god German is a difficult language.

          • Marc Dominic Zaroli

            I think gabbiadini is ready, he may not have scored as many but he’s played extremely well and remember he’s not had anywhere near as good service as immobile has

    How credible is this Di Marzio guy?
    http://gianlucadimarzio.com/en/calciomercato/sanchez-says-yes-to-juve-the-details/
    I would love to see Sanchez here..

    • DutchJuve

      I just read they call him ”the godfather of transfer news”. I think he knows quite alot. Hopefully this is true. We’ll have Vidal and Sanchez who can play well together most likely and combine this news with the news under this, Sanchez giving balls to Immobile.

      • Peter

        “the godfather of transfer news”
        Sounds good to me.
        I don’t know about Immobile, is he really that good? Could he replace Llorente in our current formation, or is he more like a target man who would be best in a 433 in the middle? I haven’t seen him play much.

        • DutchJuve

          I haven’t seen him play enough to judge about anything specific, but he can score from pretty much anywhere at any time. He’s just a great striker when he’s in form. He’s a different type than Llorente though.

        • JanJuveNL

          Correct me if i’m wrong but Torino plays with 2 strikers too right? Cerci and Immobile, and they have both been on fire this season. If Immobile can score 20 goals for Torino he can definitely do the same for us. Make it happen Marotta!

            Doesn’t Cerci play more as a winger?

          • Marc Dominic Zaroli

            Naturally yes but he’s been used as a CF the majority of this season

          • Marc Dominic Zaroli

            Pretty sure they have been involved in all but 3 of torinos goals this season

        • BelgianJuventino

          He’s topscorer in Serie A, what else can you hope for from a striker :P He could take a starting spot at Juve too, maybe for rotation with Llorente/Tevez depending on who needs a rest

          • Peter

            If he could replace both Tevez and Llorente then sure, get him. I should have a look in to his goals, how much of those were penalties, how many headers, etc.

          • BelgianJuventino

            He’s more creative than Llorente is and has a good nose for goals. His main abilities are those of a poacher, but he also has speed and creativity so I think he would give Llorente a real challenge. Tevez right now is too important imo to replace him.

            Not sure about that, but he has made some beautiful goals this season, most of his goals are in the box I believe, but he also scored 2 or more screamers from outside the box.

            But I have to admit I haven’t followed it all that closely, I just like the guy a lot

          • Marc Dominic Zaroli

            I wouldn’t say he’s more creative then Llorente as his build up play this season has been pretty great. Immobile would certainly challenge him for his spot though. I’d love to see him back at juve.

          • BelgianJuventino

            Llorente is great, I didn’t mean to say he isn’t creative, but Immobile has a bit more I think. Or I just perceive it that way, since Llorente looks like standard issue poacher :p

          • DutchJuve

            Strange way of answering the penalties question, but this is the only site i could find with those stats. Apparently, he has taken 0 penalties this season.

            Thanks, I suppose. :P
            I thought I will wait for the end of the season, so some youtube fans will upload all his goals with some shitty dubstep under it, but I will just believe you anyway.
            Edit:
            Responding to the actual content: That 20 goals are solid then, I will definitely look into him more.
            Is he in the squad to Brazil?

          • BelgianJuventino

            That is to be decided yet, up to Prandelli

    • adp1974

      this dimarzio guy? he’s been known for years as a transfer reporter .. clearly you dont know much.

      • Peter

        Yes, you are right. For the last couple of years, I didn’t really read rumors in English, only in Hungarian, and they never really cited him as source. Even if I did read some, I rarely checked the source behind these, and I mostly relied on official news rather than gossip.

  • BelgianJuventino

    Shit, Vidal is a doubt for the game against Benfica :(

    • dinodelfino

      Should be ok for the 2nd leg i hope!

  • DutchJuve

    Apparantly, Barcelona will be allowed to make transfers after all. FIFA once again don’t stay by what they want to do and pussy out.

    • BelgianJuventino

      It’s only suspended so far but yeah its ridiculous

    • Marc Dominic Zaroli

      Well thats BS
