Can someone explain me why this insignificant club is hated so much? How come Juve and Napoli have such fierce rivalry? Besides the two scudettos with Maradona, Napoli hasn't achieved anything. I have been following Juve for the last 20 years and certainly Napoli was out if the picture
If Mirko isn't on his top form, we're going to look like shit offensively. There won't be any movement, you can't force Mirko nor Gio to play as a striker, and the 3-5-2 without a real striker is really messy and ineffective.
CdS frontpage with Rizzoli taking the whole page and reading: Don't put this man to ref the game. Cannavaro saying they better not repeat what happened in Beijing.
They fucking got 2 DESERVED red cards and all the media talk about is the scandal in Beijing. The scandal was those cunts not showing up at the medal presentation. I doN,t see them talk about the pk not given on Marchisio in the Coppa Italia final!
You don't want a ref going into a game being scared of being accused of favouring you or feeling that he owes your opponent something, and there would have been a distinct danger of Rizzoli approaching the game with that sort of mindset.
The thing with Chiellini is if he doesn't feel right through the game we can bring Peluso on and he is not a dissimilar type of player. The main downside other than losing the ability of Chiellini is using a sub up, which may be important.
