New, comments

Juventus’ Scudetto hopes are hanging on by the thinnest of threads 1after dropping points once again against Hellas Verona.

Here we are again talking to you all after a disappointing Juventus result. This, unfortunately, has become a regular thing over the last few weeks. And just when we thought that Juve might be truly turning a corner, here we are doing what we did a few times during the early months of the season.

Treating the podcast as a therapy session.

Although, the context of things are a little different now as compared to where they were back in October and November when this season was still very much new and time was on Juventus’ side. These days, that’s not the case, and the chances for Juventus to potentially make up the deficit in the Serie A standings are running out. And that could have hit the breaking point this past weekend against Hellas Verona — a result, combined with what the Milan sides did over the weekend, resulted in Juve facing a double-digit hole in the league table once again.

So, yeah. Therapy session. Frustration. Lots of frustration. This is what the deal is.

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

  • The draw against Hellas Verona.
  • What the draw against Hellas Verona means.
  • Federico Chiesa — he’s been pretty good lately!
  • The last few weeks has suddenly showed us how important Arthur has become.
  • Related note: Injuries are stupid.
  • Another related note: Paulo Dybala is still injured, and that’s sad.
  • The current faith levels in Fabio Paratici and his ability to build a squad for the future.
  • Your Twitter questions!
