  2. In Juventus’ Weakness Lay Their Greatest Strength

    Juventus, a club accustomed to winning, yet starved of that unique flavour in recent times, roared back to everyone’s attention in the European realm as they clinched their 30th (detractors would contest that number) Scudetto, or Italian league title, on Sunday evening.

    Juventus win the Scudetto to the jubilation of their fans.

    While to the delight of their millions of fans worldwide who sensed the prize, the club’s first in six years, was at its closest to being paraded around in Turin after so long, one could not help but wonder, how did it all change for a side stuck in mid-table to reach the pinnacle of an Italian triumph in the space of a single season?

  3. The Scudetto is Won or Lost in the Provinces

    All it would take for Juventus to allow A.C. Milan right back into the title race on a whim was one false step, and it occured when Lecce’s Andrea Bertolacci was allowed to capitalize on the rarest of errors from Juventus custodian Gianluigi Buffon to score the equalizer and earn his relegation-battling side a gutsy 1-1 draw with the league leaders at the Juventus Stadium in Turin. 

    Buffon left pondering how his costly error could decide Juventus' Scudetto propspects.

    Lining up the ball on the edge of the box, he proceeded to curl it cleanly over the wall set up to thwart his prowess from free kicks into the bottom corner of the net, leaving the goalkeeper helplessly rooted to the spot and marking that win against Catania as significant for Andrea Pirlo’s first Juventus goal, after signing on for the Scudetto contenders in the summer transfer window.

    The scale of Milan’s task having to face Barcelona in the Quarter-Finals of the Champions League was evident from the day they were drawn together with arguably the strongest club side ever assembled in the history of football. Several weeks later, Milan now have to grapple with declining odds against a new and potentially deadlier opponent: the injury crisis that has struck Milanello, threatening to derail everything good they have achieved this season.

  6. Arsenal 5 – 2 Tottenham Hotspur: A turning point for the London clubs?


    February 29, 2012 by Andy Brady


    When Arsenal hosted Spurs a few days ago, the outcome seemed predictable: In their last two games, Arsenal had all but crashed out of the Champions League after a disastrous performance against AC Milan. This was followed by a disappointing display against Sunderland which led to the end of the Gunners’ FA cup run. Meanwhile, Spurs had demolished Newcastle by a five goal margin, and had rested a few key players in their FA cup draw to Stevenage. It seemed to everyone, including most Arsenal fans, that Spurs would achieve the double against Arsenal this season. It didn’t quite happen that way. Arsenal came out winners in a dominant display, after going down 0-2 after 33 minutes. That one result may have several consequences on the rest of the season for both teams.
