Re: 2012-13 English Premier League Thread

Juventus' midfield is comfortably better than City's, although City are better overall (on paper) as Juve's forward line is poor.

mancini may have made a few mistakes with us in europe but i expect much more from a squad that has just won the title, scored a shitload and playing some very, very good football. i'dd be bitterly disappointed if we dont make the quarters, our away form hurt us both in the league and in europe. fix that up and we should be much better.

we're in pot 2, compared to pot 3 last season
Yes but thing is that Juve teamwork is amazing. They understand each other very well. Look how well they are doing in the Euros. Buffon is better than Hart. The Juve midfield is definitely better than City´s midfield.

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League Thread

People seem to have forgot Juventus drew 600 games last season...

Not saying they are not a very good side. But they haven't been pushed yet. Their squad hasn't been stretched yet. Let's wait till next season to see if they are a "great" team.

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League Thread

and we have very good teamwork too. broken teams dont win the league. cant really point towards euro performance as to how good a club team is. our best players arent even in the euros...

If they had a top striker I'd make them one of the favourites for the tournament. Their goalkeeper, defence and midfield are elite. If they could score goals last season they would have won the league with plenty of time to spare.

Giovinco is a nice addition, but still not enough.

They're still very much suited to tournament football though, because they're so difficult to beat.

Like Italy, they're most and important and influential player is Pirlo. Let's see how the 33 year old handles an intense schedule next season.

I agree that they can be dangerous. But I also think there is a chance they could buckle.

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League Thread

Does this look like the 2012-2013 Champions League Thread you sons of bitches?

But yeah, I am really hyped for this year, probably more than ever before. Chelsea have finally won one, hoping for City, Dortmund, Juventus, etc. to fight because they all want to prove something in the CL etc. Can't wait.

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League Thread

After last year's effort in Europe, Dortmund really have something to prove. They were really disappointing in the Champions League. Juve will find it harder next year for sure having to juggle Europe and the league despite the squad they have, and as for City losing the 5th placed team in Italy, didn't that 5th placed team also beat Juve in the final of the Italian Cup?! Yes they did. Does that make Napoli better than Juve & City?
