Post-Game Thread: Juventus remember the season is over, lose to Sampdoria in finale

Claudio Villa

Juventus "played" a game today. There were players on the field, there were players wearing the Juventus kit, yet they really didn't look like Juventus at all.

The season was over weeks ago, sure, but the performance in Saturday's 3-2 loss to Sampdoria hardly resembled the same Juventus team that reigned supreme over Serie A for 37 games prior. Maybe it's just Doria. Have we discovered the new anti-Juve? Oh, what kind of fantastic discussion that would begin because of that!

But I digress.

There is this piece of information.

And then there's this piece of information.

So there's that. Marco Storari better watch out or else Rubinho will become some serious competition for Juventus' No. 2 goalkeeper spot next year. Okay, maybe not. That's all of the funny for now.

But all in all, it was exactly what you'd expect from a squad with nothing to really play for and the majority of the starting lineup consisting of players who may or may not be heading out this summer. I mean, Nicklas Bendtner played — and then got injured a couple minutes after coming onto the field — in this game. That's pretty much all that needs to be said about what happened in this one.

I'd be a lot more mad if this happened in, say, February, but there's something distracting me a little bit more at the moment. Not a bad picture now, is it?

Final tally: 87 points, two straight league titles. Well done.
