    Samu's so old he's got his farewell message permanently copied to a clipboard, lest he forgets it.

    Love that he refers to the stadium as 'the Bridge' like usual fans do. The Chelsea fan in him is plain to see.

    If he's taking the responsibility of managing this bunch, he's got a solid pair of balls. That's a positive.

    You overestimate his influence on that aspect. He only assists in the technical programmes of Academy. Emenalo is a head of scouting network, so he has some influence on transfers, but yeah, he's probably not a negotiator, and blaming solely him is not right.

    Better not go there, before you know it the "real fans" bottle will open up.
    I agree with you. A respectable silence is fine with Mourinho, to chant his name while he's come to beat us...Meh.

    Season 2012-2013

    In the first season in Juventus, Conte noticed 2 problems: left wing and strikers. So, the club bought Asamoah, Isla and Giovinco. There were also other operations, such Pogba, Bentner,….

    The whole season we played with the 3-5-2, with this formation

    Buffon
    Barzagli-Bonucci-Chiellini
    Lichtsteiner-Marchisio-Pirlo-Vidal-Asamoah
    Giovinco-Vucinic
     
    We won easily the Serie A and we went to the quarter-finals of Champions League.

    If I should suggest you a match to see, I will say another time Juventus-Parma, the first of the season. In that match, the first goal was scored by Lichtsteiner, with a classical play of the Conte’s team: ball to the left, then cross and move of the other winger that scores.

    In CL, very important were obviously the matches against Chelsea, but the most significant was against Bayern at the Allianz Arena…I think it was the first time Conte understood that there was teams that could win easily with us (fortunately today is not so)…

    So, after the win of the Serie A, he tried to change the team, like against Torino when we played with 3-5-1-1 with Marchisio behind Vucinic, but it was not a good idea.

    Conte understood two things: that team could play well only with 3-5-2 and needed new strikers.

    That season was the first of Pogba in our team and at the beginning he hadn’t many chance, but Conte administrated him very well.

    Tomorrow I will tell you the last Conte’s season in Juventus (2013-2014)

    Hello,
    I am a Juventus italian fan and maybe I can help you to understand which kind of coach Conte is...(sorry for my english, I hope you will understand)
    When he arrived in Juventus, he found a tragic situation...the previous season the team, with Del Neri, arrived at the 7th place and all the fans were demoralised.
    However, the 2011 summer was spectacular: we bought Pirlo, Vidal, Vucinic and Lichtsteiner and we inaugurated the new stadium.
    When he arrived, he said that the best tactic for him was the 4-2-4, the most difficult to teach and to do, he said. So, the first official match against Parma we played so:
    Buffon;  Lichtsteiner, Barzagli, Chiellini, De Ceglie;   Marchisio, Pirlo;   Pepe, Del Piero, Matri, Giaccherini
    It was probably the best match I ever seen of Conte's team (ok, the opponents weren't extraordinary) and I think that that match can help you to understand some important things: the key role of the wings, the importance of the movements without the ball (see the Marchisio's goal) and the importance of the defense.
    We played in such way also the next games, then he understood that he had a fabulous midfielder: Arturo Vidal. So he changed the tactic and we played with the 4-3-3, with Marchisio, Pirlo, Vidal;  Pepe, Matri, Vucinic. You can see this tactic in the match against Milan at Juventus Stadium (2-0, Marchisio, Marchisio), with some differences (not Matri, but Vucinic as center-forward and Krasic as winger). Another great game. It was a 4-3-3, but when we hadn't the ball, it turned into 4-5-1, because for Conte it is very important the sacrifice of the wingers when the team hasn't the ball.
    Then, there was the match that changed everything: Napoli-Juventus (3-3), the first time that Juve played with the 3-5-2 (that was because also Napoli played so) and with the defence with Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini. That was not a great match, but was the beginning of the current Juventus.
    We played so the rest of the season and we win the title. 
    This was the 2011-2012 season, maybe the best title in Juventus' history (because we didn't expect it). 
    I tried to explain you the principles of Conte's style, but the most important is: never give up.
    I hope that you will understand what I write, this evening I will tell you the season 2012-2013.
    Every correction in my english is welcomed

    You cannot beat both Bayern and Barca and then lose in the final to an offside goal while missing a penalty. Come on Leti!

    This Di Maria to United is so overused and misleading.
    -We're not United.
    -I don't believe United was Di Maria's first choice.
    -Real really wanted to get rid of Di Maria (as far as I remember)
    -United happened to be the only ones willing to pay that sum at the time.
    Selling Willian, or any player not named Mikel-Ivanovic is suicide. The squad is already thin with depth and quality.
