  • I gave an update on the two weeks of vacation in the Draft thread last week or two weeks ago I think. Some seemed pretty chill about it.

    Anyway, if it's too much trouble (or ''insane'') starting the Draft two weeks later I'm not participating this year. It's too bad, just unfortunate...

    Inevitable. I'm just glad it waited just long enough for fans to keep calling it Juventus Stadium, just like Dortmund fans kept calling their stadium Westfalenstadion instead of Signal Iduna Park.

    The new logo has grown on me. It's no secret football clubs turned into marketing enterprises...

    Great article, thanks for sharing! I'm so thankful the Juve board were able to convince him to join. What a champion. Juve's MVP in the knock-out stages of the CL too. Let's hope he wins the trophy for us.

    One more funny story to share on Gullit and Sacchi. Sacchi was a notorious Peeping Tom. After games he'd stand in a corner and peep at his players under the shower. Gullit, naked and showering with Maldini and company, told Sacchi a story about a guy in Amsterdam with a 1 meter dick. An incredibly rare...

    Ah, yeah. That's interesting. It's funny how each coach or player will interpret it differently. Of course Total Football is incredibly influential and romanticized, any coach will claim it had an influence.

    There's a pretty funny or telling story about this game of ideas vs. players skill,...

    Sacchi was actually a great believer in Total Football and Cruijff, Cruijff was a huge influence on him during his Milan days. He even gave a seminar recently on Cruijff and Total Football (''2.0'') at the KNVB (Dutch FA). I also saw a documentary on Cruijff's heritage and Sacchi was one of the main...

    Including the loan fees and potential bonuses Juve got pretty close to the 30M Chelsea paid for him. Maybe Conte didn't do enough to convince him it'd work out for him at Chelsea, especially with his heart set on a move back to Juve. Did Conte ever say anything about it? I think Courtois' future at...

    Cuadrado himself pushed hard for a permanent Juve move last summer. If he didn't he'd still be at Chelsea I suspect. I think clubs generally listen to a player if they really want to leave, which also happened with Vidal, Pogba and Tevez at Juve.

    The Douglas Costa to Juve rumors are pretty strong lately, it seems quite likely it will happen. In turn Bayern would want to replace him with Willian.

    That definitely sounds fair to you guys, but if I can't be on top of it I won't enjoy it. I feel it's in the spirit of the Draft to play to win. If I can't be on top of it and end up with a shitty team (which is very likely, especially with a short clock) I wouldn't want to play, it'd feel pointless...
