Juventus pre-Scudetto party link dump: April 30, 2013 edition

There's just a few short days before Juventus wraps up the Scudetto. You'd think there would be a lot of stuff going on, right? We'll see.

Let the fun — or facepalmery — begin!

Some good news, regardless of the source, to make us think happy thoughts that all of this nonsense has finally come to an end.


Football Italia: Conte wants to keep Giovinco

Scudetto's basically won, so let's talk about Sebastian Giovinco leaving! Or is he staying? Or do we all really have no freaking clue at this point? I'll take Option No. 3 for now. This certainly isn't the last we're going to hear about the Atomic Ant's future in Turin. Well, it's probably going to be just the start. Buckle up. It's going to be a long ride between now and the end of the transfer window in August.


Football Italia: Juventus trio in Madrid

Obviously to work out a contract with Cristian Ronaldo and finalise terms for his move to Juve this summer. I don't see any other reason why they would want to be there.


ESPNFC: Torino striker Riccardo Meggiorini faces racism investiagion

No matter who the hell is involved in it — a small group of Juventus fans, select players, visiting tifosi, whoever — this nonsense needs to end and it needs to end ASAP. The nuts and bolts of it is that there are claims Meggiorini racially abused young midfielder Paul Pogba.

And on top of the stupidity that is racism in the game of football, to do it when YOUR VERY OWN TEAM has a black player wearing its jersey — in this case Italian defender Angelo Obbonna — just makes it that much unforgivable.


Man United ready to pounce as 'Italian Scholes' linked with Juventus exit



YouTube: Arturo Vidal's goal against Torino

You're allowed to watch it about 20 times in a row. I know I did.


ESPNFC: More to Klopp than meets the eye

Not Juventus related, but a very good look at the Dortmund boss, who will certainly be linked to a number of jobs this summer. Then again, that's not really anything new considering it was like that a year ago. Maybe he'll have change of opinion when Bayern Munich signs his entire team.


Gazzetta dello Sport: Antonio Conte's salaries as a coach

First thing that popped into my head: I sure wish I had that kind of uptick when it comes to my salary the last few years.

Second thing that popped into my head: Antonio Conte is still one hell of a bargain when you put his total impact in total focus. €3 million for two straight Scudettos and a spot in the Champions League quarterfinals? I'll take that.

Star-divide Conte — 'We won't fall victim to complacency"

Thata boy.
