Recorded right after the Fiorentina game, Adam and Aaron could not join us this week but Lars, Marco and Mike get together to discuss a busy week for Juventus.
The boys talk about a pulsating, sometimes frustrating, but much-neeeded victory over La Viola, and discuss the deficiencies the team faced against Genoa over the week-end. They then move on to a preview of Inter, whereupon Mike’s confidence literally invades your living room and where we discover why Poulsen’s mom is still on everybody’s mind.
Yes, business as usual at “It Ain’t Over Till the Old Lady Sings”.
Here are our topics of conversation for this week’s episode:
- The Fiorentina game:
- The 1st Half, and Juve’s staggering amount of scoring opportunities :/
- The performance of Mirko Vucinic: his role as left winger, wasted chances, and his contribution to team movement;
- The 2nd Half, and how a single Viola substitution flipped the game on its head;
- The psychological state of Juve: why do they still go into shell-shock mode?
- Andrea Pirlo: genius with a penchant for danger;
- The final minutes of the game, and a nail-biting 5-4-1 formation;
- Marcelo Estigarribia, hard worker and pronunciation nightmare for Lars
- The Genoa game:
- The low-corner tactic: two Juve goals already;
- A recap of the game’s highlights;
- Alessandro Matri: a prima punta that just can’t be replaced right now;
- Lars’s obsession with Luca Toni resurges: ‘Special Teams’ Toni or ‘Special Ed’ Toni?
- Fabio Quagliarella: an option at right wing?
- L’Oréal: because “It Ain’t Over Till the Old Lady Sings” is worth it;
- The Inter preview:
- Expectations for the game, and some real cockiness from Mike
- Tactics: what will Conte try for this game?
- Giorgio Chiellini: an extended left-back experiment?
Thanks as always, and enjoy the show.
Please remember to also read our preview for tomorrow’s match (to be posted very soon), and that our pod is also available on iTunes.
