The Old Lady Speaks Podcast
Two teams that have not been playing very well of late (or for much of the 2023-24 season) face off at the Maradona looking to start the month of March off on the right foot.
It wasn’t pretty, but Juventus finally got a win in February, with relegation-threatened Frosinone giving the Bianconeri quite a scare before Daniele Rugani’s stoppage-time winner allowed his team to collect all three points.
The month of February has seen Juventus’ Scudetto hopes come to an end — and then some — as they look to get their first win in four weeks and try to hang onto second place as they face another relegation battler at the Allianz Stadium.
Juventus’ horrid run in the month February rolled on this past Saturday, as their winless streak extended to four games with another draw against a relegation battler in Hellas Verona.
Max Allegri’s squad dropped points for the third straight game, with a 1-0 loss to relegation battler Udinese putting salt in the wound following last week’s Derby d’Italia loss to Inter that put a serious dent in Juventus’ Scudetto hopes.
The Old Lady Speaks Podcast, Episode 207: Looking at Juve’s quiet yet still a little surprising winter transfer window
Juventus are a club that historically never does many big things during the January transfer window, but they still added a pair of players in Tiago Djaló and Carlos Alcaraz that could very well be play some sort of part this season (and beyond).
Rather than busting the Serie A title race wide open, Juventus couldn’t muster much at the San Siro on Sunday night, falling to league leaders Inter, who now have a four-point lead and a game in hand heading into the final 15 games of the season.
First place is on the line Sunday night when Juventus and arch-rival Inter face one another in the biggest Derby d’Italia that Max Allegri’s squad have played in at least a couple of years. We preview Sunday’s showdown here.
After a blistering run in January, Juve weren’t able to finish the month with another convincing win — or any sort of win for that matter, as Arek Milik getting sent off highlighted a disappointing night at the Allianz Stadium against Empoli.
But in a good kind of way! Because Juventus’ big-money No. 9 has come alive over the last five weeks, leading a Bianconeri attack that is suddenly scoring a whole lot of goals in a limited number of games.
Juventus’ big start to 2024 continues to roll on, as two more wins over teams in the bottom half of the Serie A allowed the Bianconeri to jump over Inter and into first place in the table.
The first-ever American male to sign with Italy’s Old Lady, Weston McKennie, looked set to be sold when the summer first began. But now as we sit here at the midway point of the season, McKennie has won back the faith of his manager and Juve supporters alike.
The Old Lady Speaks Podcast, Episode 200: Juve cruise into Coppa Italia semis as the winter mercato heats up
In a week in which Juventus rolled to another blowout win in the Coppa Italia, we also saw the transfer rumor mill pick up plenty of steam when it comes to one likely deal and a rumor that came completely out of nowhere.
One of Juventus’ brightest young prospects has headed out on loan for the second half of the 2023-24 season. Although it’s not at the club we thought it was going to be at for weeks. So what does the move to Roma mean for Dean Huijsen?
Juventus began the new year with a pair of games against Salernitana, a team that has been stuck at the bottom of the league table for weeks now. The Bianconeri got a pair of wins in the Coppa Italia and Serie A, although they came in very different kinds of ways.
Juventus closed out the 2023 calendar year in strong fashion, beating Roma with a stout defensive effort and an Adrien Rabiot goal just two minutes into the second half to claim the 1-0 win.
Two of the last remaining Serie A managers who are very much in the old school of tactics are set to square off this weekend in Turin, as Juventus host Roma in the final game of the 2023 calendar year.
Juventus’ newest striker and their most expensive one combined for the goals during Saturday’s lunchtime matinee, giving the Bianconeri three points a couple of days before Christmas.
Juventus’ final game before Christmas is a lunchtime visit to Frosinone on Saturday where they will face arguably their brightest prospect, Matias Soule, who has run with his opportunity on loan with the newly-promoted side this season.
It was a night to forget at the Marassi, and no matter what Max Allegri said about a precious point being earned his team left a whole lot to be desired against a newly-promoted Genoa side that wasn’t anything special on the night.
Heading to the Marassi has not always been as simple as it may seem no matter where Genoa (or Sampdoria) are in the table, but Juventus will try and make it 11 games straight without a loss to wrap up their run of Friday fixtures.
A game that probably shouldn’t have ended 1-0 actually did end up with a 1-0 scoreline, as Juventus extended their unbeaten run to 10 games and kept pace with first-place Inter yet again.
Juventus started the final month of 2023 with a win against Monza, but now things will be taken up a notch or two as defending champion Napoli roll into Turin for another big test for Max Allegri and company.
Just when it looked like Juventus was going to drop points for just the third time this season, Federico Gatti’s stoppage-time winner allowed the Bianconeri to jump back in front once and for all and beat Monza.
Juventus couldn’t record another win coming out of an international break this season, but were able to at the very least keep the distance between first and second place in Serie A just as it was before kickoff against Inter this past weekend.
The post-international break slate of games to close out the 2023 calendar year is going to start with a banger this weekend, as it’s first-place Inter against second-place Juventus at the Allianz Stadium in Turin on Sunday night.
With just about one-third of the 2023-24 Serie A season played and Juventus sitting in second place ahead of the Derby d’Italia this weekend, we dished out some thoughts on the early part of the campaign and had out some awards — both good and bad.
The defenders did it all for Juventus in the final game before the November international break, as the Bianconeri will head into the Derby d’Italia on a five-game winning streak after Saturday’s win over Cagliari and the chance to take first place over with a win over Inter.
Juventus sent the young Argentine on loan with the hope of him taking advantage of newfound consistent playing time at Frosinone. He’s done just that — and then some.
Juventus’ first game of November proved to be one in which Max Allegri had about as defensive as a game plan as he’s had all season, as the Bianconeri recorded their third straight 1-0 win.
With Juventus set to travel to Florence to face Fiorentina this weekend, we brought in an old friend to give us the scoop on all things Viola and how things have gone for Vincenzo Italiano’s squad so far this season.
A frustrating night thanks to VAR and other ineffectiveness in front of the Hellas Verona goal ended with a bang thanks to Andrea Cambiaso’s 97th-minute winner that took Juventus (momentarily) top of the table this weekend.
