Juventus’ is back on the field, and we are back for another round of The Old Lady Speaks.

The good news for all of us is that we get to talk about another Juventus win — which, if you were to think that we’d be in a good mood at this point of the season all of six weeks ago, then you might have to go back and adjust your predictions for Juventus.

Just like in Episode 67, we get to talk about a 1-0 win over a rival in an important game that saw Juventus move a couple of spots up the standings as a result. Talking about wins are fun, and talking about wins in big games where you get an angry Jose Mourinho yelling at the officiating crew is always better.

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

  • The win over Roma and what stood out during a third straight 1-0 victory in all competitions. (Hint: Playing well defensively is nice!)
  • Are Juventus starting to get it as Max Allegri becomes more and more comfortable with the squad that he’s working with?
  • A short tangent on library books courtesy of Chuks.
  • Looking ahead to Wednesday’s Champions League group stage game against Zenit St. Petersburg in Russia, which could go a long way in helping Juve qualify for the knockout rounds.
  • Your Twitter questions! Including topics regarding The Wings of Fede, Max’s tactics, Kaio Jorge and a potential Dusan Vlahovic signing next summer.
