The Old Lady Speaks Podcast, Episode 30: Crash Landing

Welcome to the podcast’s first official therapy session.

Annnnnnnnnnnnd we’re back.

It’s such a good thing that we’ve got a good mood going, too! Juventus is playing well, there’s a lot of positives and it just feels like Andrea Pirlo is really starting to figure this whole managerial thing out.

Oh, right. That’s what we’d be feeling like if Juventus’ last game was the 4-0 win against Parma over the weekend. Instead, Juventus’ last game was pretty much the exact opposite of what we saw against Parma. The 3-0 loss to Fiorentina on Tuesday night was the kind of downer that nobody wanted to see going into the short holiday break that is now upon us.

Yet, here we are.

And we are ... a little grumpy.

The return of our resident Dutchman and all-around good guy Chuks — his tan from his trip to Mexico looks marvelous, by the way — also served as both a therapy and venting session after Juventus completely fell flat on their face against La Viola and suffered their first Serie A loss of the season.

On this week’s episode of The Old Lady Speaks, we discuss:

  • Therapy.
  • Venting.
  • Airing of grievances.
  • The Leonardo Bonucci showing against Fiorentina where he had one of the worst games of his Juventus career and what can possibly come of it if the club’s central defenders ever get completely healthy at once.
  • Does Juventus have a on-field leadership void?
  • Where do we go from here knowing January is going to have tougher opposition, just as many games as the recently-completed run of games and now a big deficit to make up in the Serie A standings?
  • Your Twitter questions!
