Juventus brought Max Allegri back to the club last season after sacking Andrea Pirlo, even though the latter won two trophies in his only spell as the club’s manager.
Allegri had won five consecutive league crowns in his first spell at the club before leaving in 2019.
His return was expected to help Juve become champions again and probably faster, but that hasn’t been the case so far.
The team won zero trophies last season and risks finishing this campaign outside the European places after losing 15 points as a punishment.
One big problem critics continue to point out at Juve is a lack of identity in the team.
The Bianconeri do not play with any serious conviction and that does not make them an attractive side to watch. Speaking on the issue, journalist Fabio Ravezzani said via Tuttomercatoweb:
“Too many experiments, too many variations. After a year and a half, nobody is able to say what the team’s tactical identity is, who the real owners. And it’s never good”.
Juve FC Says
We do not play the most exciting brand of attacking football, which is one reason fans do not enjoy watching us play.
However, the main reason we have a lot of critics now is that we are not winning matches and are in a terrible position.
When we start winning more, very few people will care about how we play.
yes they do, you have perfectly described brand fans, and the reason why serie a is dead.
Brand fans were happy with two points for a win.
Sorry bud, but can you tow the company line anymore than you already do. Every team has an identity. A system that suits the players they have or a coach who has a style of play that produces results on the field. If Juve falls behind, especially early, they have nothing in terms of a concept or game plan to change the flow of the game or create chances. Slinging cross after cross into the area with the hopes of someone getting their head on the ball is not a system. It’s a prayer. Every time this club has trouble scoring, it’s because they have no one who can create their own opportunities. The forwards are reliant on a non-existent midfield. The midfielders have to play defense because apparently they have collars that shock them if the come within 30 yards of the opponents goal. The last 2 big goal scorers for this club were Ronaldo and Tevez. They didn’t need service, they were marksman on the field.
Allegri couldn’t score or devise a way to score on a youth club team, so stop defending him. This is a throw away year. We have no chance of seeing European football in 2024. So tell Allegri he is done in May and he can stay, or go back to his vacation villa. Either way, have fun screaming on the sidelines or at your TV.
