It has been a bothersome day. Slug faced corporate wenches, directed by spastic machismo, yet far superior at playing the game of licking the right arses and smiling at the right slime merchant managers have invaded my former safe havens. My spirits were lifted by the sight of the dwarf minx, who has sent words revealing her softer, sweeter elements late last night in the darkness, yet when I found her this afternoon, despite my wanton smiles and eager glare, she seemingly refused to even countenance my presence nearby, too engaged with communion with a corporate goon I despise…Add to this, the brief agony of visiting my dentist, the always sinister Dr Chan, a ride home aboard my two wheeled devil steed through rush hour traffic in 35C heat, my nerves broken, my patience long gone and thus, it was no surprise to find a scene of horror, of my vocal chords painting the air less than pretty, when a neighbour’s dogs were out for my beloved hellhound’s fur and fangs…Still, I have since recovered, my blood calmed, yet then I found word from my ninja sister, of her ‘interesting voyage into power dynamics’ citing being bitten by her latest zulu beau, leading to a tetanus jab, then hauled down the street by her hair…and so, with this circus which is my life, in full and awful swing, I suspect you can imagine how joyful I was to find close to confirmed the news that one of the most staggering talents at youth level we have come across in many moons, is set to sign his first professional contract with Juventus, over the coming days…
The Vermicelli born 16 year old, spawned from Ivorian parents, has been making waves crashing too fiercely upon various shores, for too long now, to fail to be noticed by more than his coaches at Juve. Officially registered as part of our U17 squad, young Kean has already turned out for the U19s…scoring during the recent primavera coppa victory over Fiorentina.
“For me it is normal to play with the greatest – he explains – I do not find any difficulty. My strengths? Shot, header, running …”.
Kean has scored 17 goals in 17 games for the Allievi. His rise to prominence at international level has been equally staggering…
Italy U15s –Debut March 2015. 6 appearances, 2 goals.
Italy U16s – Debut October 2015. 4 appearances, 3 goals.
Italy U17s – Debut December 2015. 3 appearances, 2 goals.
Compared to Balotelli, probably because he is black, powerful and scores goals, the kid had this to say of such parallels.
“Aside from the stupid things he does, I like him a lot as a player.”
Standing 1m83 obviously affords the giant a major advantage over others lacking herculean physical prowess, yet…much of his class, appears rooted in his footballing instincts. And there are plenty of equally monstrously formed defenders he faces on a regular basis.
Bioty turned 16 a few days back, and has since been offered a 3 year professional contract. Which he will sign in due course, under the always shady, never to be fully trusted influence and guidance of Mino Raiola. Arsenal and Man U amongst others have sent scouts, perhaps spoken to his agent, yet…he will sign for the club where he is happy and offers the chance for glory…
Yes yes! If you are a towering Titan, its easier to stick out at youth level, at any level really, for to win the ball, run with the ball and find goal-scoring opportunities is afforded a major advantage through the physical gifts bestowed through birth and the genes which slowly but surely show themselves, first physically, then otherwise. Yet it must be said…the art of scoring of goals is far more rooted in mental and technical potency. Knowing when and how to shoot is essential to plunder goals at Kean’s rate.
Next season will most likely see him promoted to the Primavera, where his potential will become somewhat less hazy, yet in truth – as is the case for all youth players – solely when they find competitive action at senior level do we learn more of their mettle and talent.
Regardless of the wait ahead, it is evident that Moise has raised a few eyebrows far beyond Piedmont, which is positive sign. He will be given three years to prove himself worthy of our colours…and who knows eh??? If he continues to develop and excel at his current rate, perhaps we will see Mr Kean make an appearance with the seniors next year; in the coppa against Lecce…
An exciting talent to nail down.. Stats like these are impressive at the least! Yet at such a tender age, must be given the time and environment to grow…
Hopefully one of the next youth products in the senior team in years to come!
Physically he looks a lot like Balotelli, hopefully he has a better brain capacity.
I would hope it is hard to act even more stupid than Balotelli 😛
1-0 after a Brozovic goal, bad start
This Juve looks nothing like the Juve that beat Inter just days ago, it’s completely disorientated, sloppy, lazy even. No cohesion whatsoever
I’m not watching, but what the hell are we doing.. You’d think 3-0 is enough for our defence to hold. I know Barzagli and Chiellini aren’t playing, but still.
Barzagli has just been put in for Lichtsteiner, but Inter is all over us
3-0!! What the actual fuck…
Wtf is this all about. Inter totally deserves it.
Zaza can’t aim on goal? If we score once, they’ll need another 2. Can’t fucking lose to them no matter what..
This game itself is pretty much lost at this point, but we still have the advantage. A goal would cancel out a possible 4th for Inter
Rugani can’t do shit againt Inter
is he that bad today? i cant watch the game
Only watching for 15 minutes, but he gave away a dumb penalty, can’t make a stand against his opponent at all. He’s inexperienced.
You can’t single out Rugani for this, the team as a whole sucks
Not to attack you or anything, but this kind of comment/attitude is exactly why Rugani and youngsters in general don’t get to play at Juve.
He did his best in a game where the entire team was abysmal, he hardly had any help from his teammates too. Cuadrado offered nothing on his side, Lichtsteiner was inefficient, Hernanes was losing the ball everywhere..
Rugani was completely overrun, just like the rest. He suffered and now you have this kind of comments “oh he sucks, better sell him on” and that is exactly why Allegri hardly uses him.
Besides that, Rugani has hardly seen any game time and was thrown in against an Inter side with absolutely nothing to lose. Not exactly ideal for him either
Neto just saved us from direct elimination, but if he can save that, he could have saved the penalty. Whatever..
They all play horrible
never a fan of resting key players, unless they need a rest or its the game prior to a champions league semi-final/final or league decider. This game doesn’t fall into that category, by any measure. Momentum lost. A deserved defeat (regardless of how the aggregate scoreline/penalties end) breaks momentum, erodes at cohesion. chips away at the winning mentality developed over these last few months. From matching the german powerhouse to being mauled by our most despised enemies…poor show, Max. very poor show indeed.
I wonder whats he gonna do with his last sub.
He’ll need to swap teams for that :p
Allegri already used 3
Oh.. Go to hell commentator.
All subs were used for both teams actually
Most key players were on a yellow, so i assume thsts why key players were rested.
I believe Max made some poor decisions in the starting line up. A 4-4-2 with hernanes sturaro at the center is extremely unbalanced. Hernanes is a joke, and i dont rate him. There was no stability in the center, i assume. Also with Cuadrado s lack of defensive intellect, surely sturaro was eventually overwhelmed, especially considering Padoin was our Rb. I cant imagine how Rugani mustve felt.
Hernanes did absolutely stunning when he replaced Marchisio against Bayern, which is probably why he earned a spot yesterday.But yesterday he was just as bad as we have to come to expect from him
Oh my fucking………….
WE SCORED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is no curse on this match.
Phew, we still go through…
Terrible match, but whatever, we’re through. Now move on and never think of this match again, shit happens.
Hate to say it, but kudos to Inter, they played a great game tonight…
Result is what matters tonight and we won it in the end. Big wake-up call, you just can’t take ANY game easy at this point
Wasnt able to watch the match per usual, but when i saw a 4-4-2 vs a 4-4-3 especially with Hernanes of all players anchoring the midfield, i knew we were due a loss, but never thought those rats would actually comeback.
In the end, i never wanna see i***r end a game with a victory, but at least we knocked them out, which is all the satisfying.
Well….i didn;t bother posting a match preview because……we were 3-0 up and what was there to preview ? What was there to discuss ? we were going to probably draw 0-0 in a slow game because ……thats what happens
Damn. how wrong was i
Leo. Fucking. Bonucci
Leo. Fucking. Bonucci. what a man
I still remember the days he was bashed :p now hes one of the leaders. He wasnt lying when he said he d practice his pks after that miss for italy, i think. He sent the keeper the wrong direction.
