The Old Lady Speaks Podcast
We’re done with the first week of the World Cup break, so we decided to talk about some Juventus things nonetheless — namely what has taken part over the course of the first half of the 2022-23 season.
Following Sunday’s win over Lazio, Juventus has not lost a Serie A game in over a month and head into the World Cup break on a six-game winning streak that has put them into third place in the league table.
Juventus capped a week in which they played rather well with a deserved win over Inter in Sunday’s Derby d’Italia giving Max Allegir’s squad a big boost going into the final week before the World Cup break.
Juventus won’t be in the Champions League knockout rounds thanks to their loss to Benfica last week, and it’s not exactly like you like their chances in the Europa League these days, either.
Juventus had one objective during the third week October — beat Empoli. And for one of the few times this season, Juve actually gave something to be happen about as we watched them play.
As much as the Turin derby win was a nice change of pace, it’s hard to get over just how bad Juventus has been in the Champions League this season, with a potential trip to the Europa League beckoning.
Just when it looked like Juventus actually had the chance to string some wins together, Max Allegri’s squad goes out and has an absolute stinker against Milan over the weekend, showing us that even a couple of wins won’t be the thing that gets things turned around.
No, seriously. The title is actually the truth, as Juve returned from the international break with a solid 3-0 win over Bologna to begin an extremely busy month of October.
It may be the middle of an international break, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t something Juventus-related to discuss. And considering what time of the year it is, it usually means there’s a financial report to dissect.
The Old Lady Speaks Podcast, Episode 117: Juve has an awful week ... but these moments happen in football
Juventus’ disaster beginning to the 2022-23 season continued as we hit the middle of September, with a pair of awful performances resulting in a pair of equally awful losses to Benfica and Monza.
In a week in which Juventus dropped its Champions League opener, it’s what happened over the weekend against Salernitana that still has people talking and leaving us wondering how things failed so badly.
Juve got another early lead before again seeing that lead go up in smoke against Fiorentina on their way to a third draw in five games and more dropped points from a winning position.
Juventus played arguably its best half of football Saturday, but the Bianconeri couldn’t make it last against Roma in a second straight night of dropped points.
The second straight Monday night of Juventus football looked far from the first one, with Max Allegri’s squad giving us plenty of flashbacks to last season in a scoreless draw against Sampdoria.
Juventus’ season-opening win over Sassuolo provided some reasons to be optimistic about what could be on the way over the next few weeks, with the Bianconeri’s big-name players leading the way Monday night.
Juventus closed the preseason with a pair of duds. Is that a hint as to what’s to come or will Max Allegri actually have this team playing well enough to do more than just finish in fourth place ... again?
Playing its third game in a little over a week, Juventus concluded its preseason tour in the U.S. with a strugglefest against the reigning European champions, Real Madrid.
OK, so it wasn’t totally a vacation because the main reason we were there was for work, but that "work" involved watching Juventus during its first stop in its 2022 tour of the United States.
Juventus’ best defender is heading to Bayern Munich, with what’s to come and how the club will spend the money they now find themselves with very much a giant question mark.
Juventus has made its first two signings of the summer, but things are expected to pick up in the coming days — and it’s not just about who might be leaving the club, either.
As June turns to July, the Juventus transfer rumor mill is centered around one very large and muscular Dutchman, who is going to command a lot of money wherever he ends up going.
Juventus’ best defender as well as the club itself will have to make some tough decisions soon, with Chelsea hot on the trail to sign Matthijs de Ligt this summer and an even bigger rebuild potentially in the cards as a result for the Bianconeri’s front office.
The Old Lady Speaks Podcast, Episode 104: Is one Frenchman leaving Juve as another is set to arrive?
As we await Paul Pogba’s triumphant return to Turin, his national team teammate Adrien Rabiot has reportedly told Juventus that he would like to leave the club this summer.
The Juventus world is currently filled with transfer rumors galore, and because of that we decided to take a break from talking about said rumors to take some questions from the some of our loyal listeners and Twitter followers.
But consider the four of us not any of those people who are actually freaking out about what de Ligt said about his contract extension and his Juventus future while on international duty with the Netherlands.
There are some awards to hand out, but be warned that not all of them are good ones. (We’re looking at you, players who have not had vey good seasons.)
Juventus signed off for the 2021-22 season with a we’re-on-the-beach kind of performance against Fiorentina this past weekend, but the real memorable moments came last Monday night at Allianz Stadium — for good and for bad.
In what could have been some sort of salvation for an overall disappointing 2021-22 season, Juventus — and its manager — left a lot to be desired in falling to arch-rival Inter Milan in the Coppa Italia final.
In the final game before the Coppa Italia final against Inter Milan, Juventus went out and blew a 1-0 lead late to one of the worst teams going in Serie A. So, not great.
Juventus officially booked its place in next season’s Champions League this past weekend, but it was an 18-year-old midfielder who got his first-ever senior squad start that dominated the conversation this week.
Juventus made the most out of their chance to get to another Coppa Italia final, playing a classic Max Allegri counterattacking game to beat Fiorentina in Turin.
In a season full of sub-par performances, Juventus put forth one of the most sub-par of them all, dropping points against a Bologna side that has been absolutely dismal away from home in 2022.
