United's stink is such that even being linked with them by ITK makes you forget how to hold your dick when taking a piss

That's so sad man. Koulibaly seems such a likeable fellow as well.

Woeful defending in second half from both teams.

Great finish by Koulibaly, shame at the wrong end.

God, it's not even like he had no other option. The ball in had a nice shape but not one Juve player was following it in, so it was harmless. Where was the shout from his keeper to leave it the feck alone?

Great game. De light needs to settle soon otherwise it should be demiral or rugani with Bonucci.

Demiral was great in pre-season.

De Ligt needs more time, a start against Napoli is never easy.

They were always the richest over there, except during Berlusconi s AC Milan period. Success follows money in Italy (not only over there).
70 s and early 80 s Juventus were dominant - Agnelli s FIAT pumping the cash. Then mid 80 s Milan took over (Berlusconi media empire financing the club) till late 2000.
Now Juventus are back
I'm talking about their recent dominance not their historical dominance. They finished 7th in 2011 and won the title the next season without losing a game under Conte and didn't spend lots of money to get there. In fact, during Conte's reign they didnt spend lots of money, some year they even had a net profit in the market.

1997 - 2010- (Moratti have spent more than Berlusconi in that period.

Basically about finances:
Inter: '60s, from mid-90's to late '00s
Milan: from 86 to 1995.
Juventus: '50s, '70s, 1980-1985, '10s.

But Moratti was an incompetent whose brothers gave him money from family owned company to invest in his favourite hobby and stay away from.family business

True. But their dad was inter's greatest owner/president

And it doesn't change the fact he outspent everyone

Juventus are were they are because of good management. Even before Gianni Agnelli's death they were already moving towards a modern, self-sustaining model. Hence the sales of Zidane, Inzaghi, etc...

Building the stadium was part of that. Still after calciopoli they took a few years to find a new great management with Umberto's son Andrea taking over and hiring Marotta-Paratici

Now compare it to both Milan clubs
Inter spent 158mil and sold players for 116mil(-42 net spend) while Milan spent 133mil on players and sold for 120mil(-13 net spend)
Juve's main 2 rivals were already going broke and that was 8 yeas ago.

Its been a few games. Think we should judge at the end of the season.
I know, it's just funny that they both have a shite performance right after that award show. As long as they show up against zhe Germans, it's all good.

Jesus F Ch.....

Just about to call it a night and went on BBC to check the Juve final score as I turned off at half time. Was just checking to see if Juve had closed out the 2-0 or added a third....so eyes nearly popped out when I saw the final score and time of goals. :lol:

Napoli would've probably rather lost 2-0, such a horrible way to lose and a bad one for Serie A generally as more interesting for Juve to drop some points early on.
