The Old Lady Speaks Podcast, Episode 28: Roller Coaster Ride

Andrea Pirlo is still learning on the job, and it’s not like the schedule and his team’s performances are doing him any favors these days.

Juventus’ form has been all over the place coming out of the international break, and it’s been no different over the course of the last seven days both domestically against Benevento and in the Champions League with a 3-0 win over Dynamo Kyiv in Turin.

There’s been some good, probably more bad. Plenty in the middle that has usually considered in the “meh” section around here.

What does all of that mean?

Well, we tried to at least have some kind of discussion on that very issue that is currently occupying a whole lot of our Juventus-related thoughts these days.

With our resident published author on a late-fall getaway to Mexico with the misses for a few days, it was a party for three this week on the podcast. (But, even though Chuks wasn’t on this week’s episode, go ahead and support our guy with the release of his new book. It’s good, and we want to keep our favorite Dutchman — sorry, Matthijs! — happy for the rest of time.) We managed, even though Chuks’ smiling face wasn’t around.

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

  • Two months into the 2020-21 season, Juventus is still puzzling us a lot of the time. Why?
  • Takeaways from the 3-0 win over Dynamo Kyiv on Wednesday night.
  • Juventus’ schedule over the next few months is going to be absolutely absurd with how many games will be played. As well as important with who they will be playing.
  • Just how worrisome has Juve’s struggling form away from home this season against mid- or lower-table clubs been?
  • As always, we wrap things up with a couple of questions from Twitter.
