    The holidays are over. We return back to the season this weekend with the winter championship already secured. The ritorno starts the following week. We have a big Coppa match against Milan next week. The distraction is the idiotic January transfer window. December was a good month. Let's kick off the new year the way we ended. Only one match on the road.

    6 Jan - Sampdoria
    13 Jan - at Parma
    20 Jan - Udinese
    27 Jan - Genoa

    Coppa Italia
    9 Jan - Milan

    Anything less than a WIN in all those games is a disappointment

    Juventus are back in action tomorrow against Sampdoria and Antonio Conte is targeting history. “Doing the Double means we are building something truly important.”
    “There are always risks after coming back from a break, but we have worked very well over the last few days.
    “Winning the Scudetto can be a one-off, but doing the Double means that we are building something truly important here.
    “The Champions League is also a wonderful dream that we should keep chasing. However, we must also know how to be patient and focus on our project of growth.
    “Sampdoria are a well-drilled side in a difficult position that they are unaccustomed to. We need to be alert, but are fully prepared for this encounter.”
    Stephan Lichtsteiner is suspended, while Giorgio Chiellini, Simone Pepe and Nicklas Bendtner are long-term absentees.
    “Mirko Vucinic is feeling much better, his training is being monitored and he will be available for tomorrow,” noted the Coach.
    The squad has been augmented by the arrival of Federico Peluso from Atalanta, signed on loan at €1m with option to buy for another €4m.
    “Peluso can cover several roles and represents an intelligent signing. I’m convinced he will make a big contribution to Juventus.
    “More signings? If the opportunity arises to bring players in, then I’m confident we’ll make the right moves. I really believe in this group and nobody will be leaving in January.”
    Conte was asked about the rumors of an offer for DidierDrogba and Athletic Bilbao confirming Juve’s interest in Fernando Llorente.
    “I keep reading about Drogba, but the club never proposed him to me or vice-versa. There are economic parameters to be taken into account. Transfers must be intelligent and low-cost.
    “Llorente is a Spanish international and has done very well at Bilbao, so he is an appetizing prospect. If we have the chance to sign a big player on a free transfer and he chooses us, then good.
    “I can certainly say that a year ago Llorente wouldn't have taken us into consideration, but we are back to a high level and are now very appealing to big players. Would I be surprised to have him at my disposal in January? Yes, because he is an Athletic Bilbao player.”
    During his Press conference, Conte was also asked about Kevin-Prince Boateng and Milan’s decision to walk off the pitch during a friendly with Pro Patria due to racist chanting.
    “Racism in football is a very serious problem that must be faced by ensuring the rules are respected.”

    Bonucci continuing his art of abstract diving in the box. :D

    Berardi for his second yellow, which was 100% justified. Let's also ignore the foul on Matri in the box that should have been a pk, and right at the end there Bonucci being brought down with a rugby tackle.

    Not a bad first half, but not great. Despite getting the goal, Giovinco's been terrible. Peluso's played well.

    No way that was a dive, Gastadello had both arms around Bonucci's waist and he clearly dragged him down.

    I think Matri even told the fourth official, if that was a dive then you should have given me a yellow.
