Afterthoughts – The 2012/13 Season Part II: European Exploits

In the first installment of this idiosyncratic season review, we contemplated a somewhat dull but ultimately very successful domestic 2012/13 season. This time, we’ll cast our minds back to the European efforts of the Bianconeri. For starters, let’s make one thing absolutely clear: What the league may have lacked in terms of real drama and …

Afterthoughts: The 2012-13 Season – The Home Front: Serie A and Coppa Italia

The human mind and soul are indeed two strange and wondrous things… For example: One year removed from the tear-provoking, chest pounding and overwhelmingly empowering ecstasy of witnessing the Old Lady finally take home her 30th Scudetto last May in Trieste, most Juventini (myself included) were closer to ”rather pleased” than “in borderline psychopathic overdrive” …

Afterthoughts: After the Streak

“It’s a funny old thing, football”, you often hear people say. They’re right, basically, but only if the initial adjective is taken in its most inclusive of forms, i. e. odd, strange, or outright bizarre. Even ‘funnier’ still – crazier, more shameful, more rewarding, most entertaining – is the Italian variant of the game, known …

Afterthoughts: ALESSANDRO DEL PIERO – The Atlas of Juventus

Alessandro Del Piero. The name alone makes me feel all warm inside. Whenever I read or indeed write those three words (or any one of the two three-letter abbreviations that have become synonymous with this remarkable individual — ‘ADP’ or simply, ‘Ale’), I immediately feel proud and very lucky to have been able to follow …

Afterthoughts: ★★★ CAMPIONI ★★★ A Few Words…

IT. IS. DONE. Jesus tap-dancing Christ, IT IS DONE! JUVENTUS ARE BACK! After all we’ve had to suffer in recent years, I don’t believe any gestalt-psychologist in the world will ever have witnessed a primal scream equal to the one bellowed by Juventini worldwide after yesterday night’s Scudetto win! It’s all a bit of a …

Afterthoughts: A Happy Juventus New Year – Without Any Fear!

2011… In a lot of ways, not a year to be remembered particularly fondly by Juventini around the globe. Luckily the woes are (to a large extent) behind us, and the year has come to and end with Juventus undefeated and joint leaders of Serie A. One does very well to remember history though. For …
