Fall out of the match fixing still continuing for Juve Shocked

So the match fixing Charges aganist Antonio Conte have been acquitted but now he can be sentenced up to 3 months from being sidelined for football because he didnt report anything to the authorites about knowing that the team was fixing the matches. Also Bonucci can be banned for 3 years for match fixing and Pepe has also been acquitted match fixing but can be sentenced for a 3 month ban also

If anything a ban for Pepe would be a good thing!

Interesting to see how Juve go in the CL they will be third seeds so could get a tough group, but like Napoli last year I think they will qualify.
 
Juve have strenghtend quite well with the purchase of Isla and asamoah from Udinese, Giovinco is back and Lucio on a free transfer will over cover at the back as Juve try to compete on all 3 fronts.  Serie A, Coppa Italia and CL.
 
And hopefully before the window closes Juve will have added another striker.  Van Persie and Jovetic are the two been strongly chased and looks like Juve will swap Quagliarella with Pazzani from Inter.
 
It should be pointed out that Conte's involvement in the betting scandal is in relation to his time over Siena and although cleared of sporting fraud and charges of direct involvement he is charged with the lesser crim of not reporting knowledge of an attempted fix and could get a 3 month ban.
 
Pepe I am not his biggest fan as I think he is not good enough to command a starting place but his work rate is excellent is been investigated for the same lesser charge from his Udinese days.
 
But Bonucci who has improved a lot and is maturing into a top centre half faces the bigger charge of direct involvemnt and could face a lenghty ban as a result of allegations from his Bari days.
 
 
 
Milan will struggle without Ibra and Tiago Silva, and dont have the money or will to replace them with top quality players. But will still have enough to finish in the top 3
 
Roma will continue to play good football but under Zeman should possess a more cutting edge and be stronger mentally andshould have a good year.
 
Inter its hard to know Julio Cesar, Forlan and Maicon look to be following Lucio out the door Cambiassio and Zanetti no longer the players they were will Sneider get back to his best no real big signings for them I think they will continue to be inconsitant and be out of the title race by January.
 
Napoli looks like the will hold onto Cavani sold Lavezzi for big books but will focus on Serie A this season and I think the will go well.
 
Juve start as Champions and will be hard to dethrone as they now have a greater strenght in depth but should be a good season.  And last year the standard of football was very good and highly enjoyable.  Cant wait for the season to start and hope to go to a few of the games in Turin

Horrible third seeds whoever gets them. I think Dortmund will be 4th seeds again too.

Year of transition for a lot of top clubs, so I'd say Juve will win it with a few weeks to spare. Inter look best placed to challenge at the moment IMO. Coutinho back from Espanyol, hope he gets on well.

Think Juve will win it again, I think this could be Matri's year, he looked promising at times last year and maybe with some more confidence and consistent starts he can build on the 10 goals he scored last year. RVP would really make them contenders in Europe but looks like they've pulled out of the bidding today, although I wouldn't put too much weight into that, could be a tactic to get the price down as they know Arsenal won't want to sell to someone else in England. Will be interesting to see how Inter do under Stramaccioni, I think they will finish 2nd with Milan or Napoli in 3rd

Superb synopsis off the situation Pinturicchio Clap

Hard to see by Juve retaining it but I really do think Roma will push them hard as Lamela has been looking really settled in pre-season and looking very comfortable in this system - same with Osvaldo and Totti. Castan and Bradley look perfect buys too and a few more additions to the squad(l/b, c/b and maybe one more midfielder for cover) should see them comfortable in the top 3 I think(of course these words could very well come back to haunt me LOL)

Gattuso letting people know what the attitude at Milan is like these days in comparison to the old days in an interview with France Football.

"I left because I wasn't happy in a dressing room which once upon a time was a lot easier to manage."

"When there was a training session at 9:30 many got there just 10 mins beforehand + no one said anything. I got there 45 minutess early."

"Or, when there was a lunch at 1pm, some arrived 15mins late. There was a lack of respect for the rules."

Gattuso on Gourcuff: "He was only a kid. He went out too much. He got to training late and Milan intervened 'too late'."

Fiorentina building a nice team for the new season. Roncaglia, Borja Valero, Aquilani and Matias Fernandez, as well as Montella joining. A very happy 10th summer in charge for the Della Valle family.

Pizarro asked to have his contract tore up to get the move and Roma only too glad to do it as was on decent money and they trying to get 5 big players on big wages off the wage bill, next to leave Roma should be Heinze with a move to Newells on the cards
