Starting XI
Guys, first of all, congrats for being back where you belong.

Second, looks like we are making all forces to have Fabrizio with us again, apparently, José Veiga (our football director) is in a reunion in Turin today, i just hope he doesn't go to Porto, anything else it's fine with me.


Awesome job, Jeroen! (Y)

Really good that Trezeguet extended his contract, hopefully Nedved won't retire and maybe we could make a couple more transfers.

How much Benfica are willing to pay?

i don't know well, rumours say that Miccoli will serve as a trade with Luisão and you will give us 13M €.

Other rumours say Miccoli alone will cost about 5M, other (stupid) rumours say that we will buy Antunes (Portuguese young left-back) which you were supposedly interested in (don't believe that), and we will trade him with Miccoli and no cash involved... :S

In the next days there will be more news about this issue, one thing is sure tho, with the renewal of Trez, Miccoli space in Juve is decreasing.


Transfer Guru
13m € + Miccoli for Luisão? no offense but ouch!!! :D

I hope we finalize the G. Milito deal.

other rumors about Miccoli is a swap deal for Barzagli and we give them 5m €.


Forza Suarez! (ps brotha can you spare a dime?)
Serie A, finally. @Deisler I don't think we'll see Iceblu for a while. We all know how much you miss him.

Nedved to play on
Monday 25 June, 2007
Juventus President Giovanni Cobolli Gigli is confident Pavel Nedved will play on for at least one more season.

“In my opinion, Nedved will play for at least one more year,” said the Bianconeri chief.


Senior Squad
Never thought I'd say this, but it feels right to have you guys back in the top flight.

And no, I'm not just saying that because you have Salihamidzic now.

Great job Juventino!

Yes, back where we belong. :D

congrats mates on beeing back , like juventino says its were you guys belong, and about transfers i think you guys still need at least 1 or 2 new CB's, milito could be a good choice as is barzagli, maybe chivu too, you guys need to get another DM too , gilberto silva i think could fit emerson and vieiras place like a glove, i dont like sissoko that much,.


SG's van Bommel
Awesome job Juventino.. gr8 thread.
Nice to be back in Serie A.. here is were we belong.. but i don't really see us champions at the end of next year.. we must make some more quality transfers. Let's hope we will finally get Milito.

Trez extended his contract for 3 or 4 years?


Starting XI
trez on to 2011

his contract was to expire in 2008

he's at juve for life, might end up as close to highest ever goalscorer too, if he keeps up his 20 goal per season average


Starting XI
oh and how sweet it feels!!!!!


in my honest opinion we have a team that can challenge for the scudetto. i mean we have a few great signings and really i have soo much more respect for the way our new triade are doing things... the football world has started to respect juve again. and it is great to see...

who knows how many more signings theyll bring or if they will sell anyone... we should know soon.


Fan Favourite
I dont know whether you guys will agree, but instead of having separate Inter, Juve, Roma and Milan etc threads, why not just have one Serie A thread.

I dont think we have enough posters. And probably with just one thread, people would look into it more thus reviving interest in Serie A.

Look at the Milan thread, the Inter thread, the Roma thread, and more most periods before the last week, the Juve thread.

No one posts.

Of course, just a suggestion.
