He's back!!! /starts playing Jaws music

You know you missed this guy. YOU KNOW YOU DID.

For the first time since Juventus were in preseason preparations for the current campaign, Antonio Conte will be roaming the sidelines and subsequently screaming at the top of his lungs.

Man, it feels good to type that again.

Our boss is back and you know for a fact that the players will have a little extra hop in their step because of that. Or at least we damn well hope they do.

But wouldn't it be the perfect time to do so? It's not every day that a manager of Conte's caliber comes back to the sidelines mid-season after an extended suspension.

As you can probably tell, I'm looking forward to having Il Mister back for good.

So, with that being said: Let's go kick some Palermo tail, shall we? Sounds like a fantastic idea!
