 Positives:

Mandzukic – Goals, goals goals. He’s now contributed a goal or an assist in 7 out of his last 8 games. The partnership with Dybala is really paying dividends as the two of them are responsible for something like 70% of Juve’s goals this season. Worrying, if one of them were to get injured, impressive when you consider that many questioned the purchase of Mandzukic as early as September.

Marchisio – Another game where he’s been the dominant Juve player in midfielder but you wouldn’t think of it when you look at his stats. He provided his first assist of the season today and it was something quite special at that, but his real contribution has been to take a more ‘withdrawn’ less glamorous role, and do it with a certain understated genius.

Another game for Daniele Rugani – Two games and two appearances in a row for the young defender. It’s all too easy to get carried away about a 21-year-old centre back but when you consider what he achieved last season at Empoli, you can understand the enthusiam and desire for him to play. A shame his goal didn’t stand today as that would have made a week to remember.

Seven wins in a row – A first for Allegri and the last time Juve managed it was May 2014. The closing 5 minutes aside, that’s certainly cause for optimism as Juve have made huge strides up the table to rest in 4th.

    Great to see Rugani get some time today, thank you Allegri.

    Mandzukic is really becoming the striker we hoped he would be, goals galore lately. Same for Dybala, even if this game he wasnt optimal.

    Hopefully Inter drop points against Lazio, they are losing at the time I’m writing this.
    If they lose all top 5 teams are within a 3point reach of each other xD

    why I love Juve, because each season they have players I really, really like. OMG Paolo Dybala just loving his spirit, pace, accuraccy… OMFG Mandzukic, I know, contested signing, but he is a Llorente kind of player with a flair of Trezeguet. His first goal against Carpi, fucking loving it. OMFFG Claudio Marchisio, just one word .. class .. Then I even not mensioned Pogbaliscious …Awesomoa …seeing our young starlet Rugani giving chances … Just one tear, Morata, come on, spanish furie, fight back!! Pundering about Cuadrado, he works his ass off, showing unbeleavable skills to be just everywhere on the pitch, but lacking just the right tackle, the right pass, … maybe just trying to do too much?
    My best Xmass present, seeing Juve rise once and again to the top! Early Easter present, beating the Germans 🙂
    Question/Poll? should we buy a number 10, like Oscar, Isco,… or stick to our winning 3-5-2 formation?
