The Old Lady Speaks Podcast
Juventus’ "new" manager got the better of Juventus’ old manager and allowed the Bianconeri to move up another couple of spots in the Serie A standings.
We’re starting a new week and it is a week in which Juventus returns to the field when they face an old friend in Maurizio Sarri and Lazio.
Juventus closed a busy run of fixtures with a couple of wins over Zenit St. Petersburg and Fiorentina in Turin, but in two very different kinds of fashions.
You want to hear us talk about how bad Juve was over the last few games, you’ve come to the right place.
Juventus marked its return to the field after the October international break with another Allegri special, beating Roma 1-0 to continue their winning ways against Jose Mourinho’s squad at Allianz Stadium.
It’s the back half of the October international break, which means Juventus is close to returning to the field once again. And it just so happens an old "friend" is coming back to Turin for the first time in a few years.
Juventus entered its matchup with Chelsea as the underdog. They not only one, but they turned in a classic Max Allegri performance and went into the international break with plenty of momentum.
Juventus is finally in the win column in Serie A this season, with a pair of 3-2 wins over Spezia and Sampdoria within the last week. But, as always, things aren’t as wonderful as they may seem.
Juventus’ tumble down the table continued this past weekend, with a third lead blown in four games resulting in Max Allegri’s squad finishing the fourth matchday of the 2021-22 season in — wait for it — 18th place.
Juventus’ season-opening struggles continued against Napoli this past weekend, and it’s not like they’re doing a whole lot to inspire confidence that they’ll turn it around any time soon.
It’s the first international break of the season, so that gives us a chance to get caught up on a few things now that the summer transfer window is officially a thing of the past.
Max Allegri tried to do some experimenting against Empoli, but it ended up blowing up in his face and Juventus dropped points for a second straight game to begin Allegri 2.0.
The drama Sunday started well before kickoff and lasted well after Juventus opened the 2021-22 season with a disappointing 2-2 draw against Udinese at the Friuli.
The start of the 2021-22 season is almost upon, and that means a deep dive into what’s good and bad about this edition of Juventus and the man who’s back to coach them.
Juventus took a big step up in competition level in its third friendly of the preseason. It wasn’t all that great and there was plenty of freaking out, but was it really necessary?
Juventus have a new Brazilian talent coming to their ranks in a matter of days, and that means we get to figure out how to actually pronounce his name after learning how to spell it.
Juventus, albeit with very limited senior squad experience available, returned to the field this weekend with a familiar face barking orders from the sidelines again, as Max Allegri 2.0 debuted in Saturday’s friendly vs. Cesena.
As Juventus starts up training under Max Allegri, there’s plenty happening off the field involving players who are both currently in Turin or on holiday after the Euros.
Italy emerged victorious in the Euro 2020 final, and good times have been had since then.
We talk a little Juventus, a lot of Euros and remain hopeful that this summer of tournament madness continues to deliver.
We belatedly take a look back at the 2020-21 season now that the dust has settled when it comes to Juventus’ managerial situation.
Max Allegri is back at Juventus, and this summer is shaping up to be one full of drama, transfer rumors and plenty of chaos along the way. Just look at the last week we’ve had as Exhibit A, folks.
Juventus, somehow, had everything go their way on the final day of the season, both winning and getting help to qualify for the Champions League next season.
Juventus might have picked up a win over Inter Milan in the Derby d’Italia over the weekend, but they still remain on the outside looking in of the top four heading into the final game of the 2020-21 Serie A season.
In a season full of disastrous results, Juventus’ 3-0 loss to AC Milan at Allianz Stadium was maybe the worst of them all knowing the context of having their status in the top four directly tied to it.
Juventus’ performance in Udine was absolutely garbage, but thanks to a couple of late Cristiano Ronaldo goals they were able to salvage something out of one of their final away fixtures of the season.
Juventus dropped points to Fiorentina again and one of Andrea Agnelli’s biggest projects yet, the European Super League, blew up in his face. So, as you can guess, it was a bad week.
The news of the creation of the European Super League made Juventus dropping more points in the race for a Champions League spot — whatever that may mean now — seem like a very minor blip on the radar.
The first-full week of April provided something we haven’t seen Juventus do a lot of lately — win back-to-back games in relatively good fashion.
Juventus’ returned from the international break and looked a lot like the team that went into the international break — which is bad and something nobody wanted to actually see take place.
There has been a lot of talk surrounding Paulo Dybala’s future at Juventus. With no games to talk about, we decided to add to that talk.
