Juventus - Fino Alla Fine (Untill The End)

Written by
After previous turmoil at the Italian giants, new Juventus manager Cakey_b has brought a certain sense of optimism to the club. The Scottish manager many deemed too inexperienced to take the club forward has maybe not had the best of starts in the PS4 Division 1. After only one win in the first 3 games, many fans seemed to start the band wagon to try and oust the manager.
 
The defeats have been difficult for the fans to take, but there are many positives that could be taken from the games.
 
The game against Hellas Verona, saw a free scoring spectacle. The attacking flair is clearly there but Italian heritage prides itself on defence. Juventus certainly look like a team that is still finding its feet, and defensive frailties are ever present. Incoming veteran centre bank Brede Hangeland has come in replacing the outgoing Berekzutski who has moved on. Hangeland has a presence in any backline. Starting alongside Russian stalwart Ignashevich. They have the experience to deal with any striker. But is the defensive awareness and presence enough?
 
Many fans have questioned the manager’s ethics in the transfer market. Certain incomings and outgoings have brought confusion amongst fans.
 
Cakey_b has come out to put these fears to bed and state his intentions for his tenure at the club.
 
With the announcement of recent additions to the squad Luca Toni. The veteran striker has some unfinished business at Juventus. Many see this as his grand farewell season as he is in the twilight of his career. Can he make the desired impact the manager wants and propel the club to glory?
 
 
The second addition to the club roster is another former player. It seems the manager has taken heed of the cries of the fans for a defender capable of handling the pace of the game in Division 1.
 
Angelo Ogbonna has returned. After his first stint at the club was cut short due to lack of game time due to the wealth of options in the rear guard. He too may feel he has come home to prove to the club and the fans he has what it takes.
 
 
His pace and physical attributes mean he will slot right into the backline alongside Ignashevich. The ageless Russian has proved time and time again he is worthy of his place. Stellar performances in recent games has proved he still has what it takes to play at the top of his game. He may now have found a partner to compliment his wealth of experience.
 
Ogbonna replaces Hangeland who has moved to Hellas Verona. The club and manager would like to thank him for the small part he has played so far. Other outgoings from the squad are Lanzini and Rondon. Both have found first team football hard to come by. Lanzini playing second fiddle to Siem De Jong, a man once ravaged by injury has found form in recent games. Rondon mostly used as a substitute has decided to move on, with Toni coming in the other direction. Again the club and staff wish them the best of luck.
 
Finally, the manager seems to have two players he feels will feel at home here and can help the team stay in this division and build upon their strengths. Cakey_b signed off by shouting Fino Alla Fine in a somewhat terrible Scottish accent with Italian twang. Fans roared in praise.
