One admirable thing about Andrea Pirlo is that he keeps the positive energy flowing even when Juventus losses a game.

He finds a way to talk about the positive side of the game and that is something really sweet.

But being positive after a negative outcome for his team seems like a desperate attempt to mask the grave situation that we’re in as a club right now.

It is hard to understand why Juventus will lose a closely contested game against Atalanta.

I admit that it was a tough game and could have gone either way, but we are accustomed to seeing it go our way and what has changed is that Pirlo is our latest manager.

I like him, but he is clearly not the man for this job. Nice speeches and a positive outlook can give you some hope, but it doesn’t cure incompetence.

We took a major gamble to make him our manager and it has backfired now.

The honourable thing to do would be to cut our losses and appoint a better manager as his replacement.

If Juve remains committed to Pirlo and endures another torrid season in 2021/2022, it would make the decision-makers at the club look clueless.
