    So finally it's official that there's no way we will get 3rd place, that means we are in champions league next year :)

    I'm very excited and even though it was only 2 years, it feels like we havent been there in 5 years or so. I cant wait to see what we can do against other european sides. I think we will do well cuz we actually play BETTER against good teams. We just cant deal too good with teams that park the bus.


    One thing to consider we will be in 3rd POT...which means we can get GROUP OF DEATH!


    I also wanna praise conte, as much as i still dont like some of his stuff but he has put an absolute shocker of results and done his job well. Majority of us had no faith in him but he proved us all wrong. I like the way our team has played compared to last 5 years or so. We have good chemistry, passing and team work. Job well done Sir :)

    Maybe when Europe gets serious about Europe?
    The coefficient system is a pathetic joke that tries to get people to care about the tumor that is Europa League... and fails.
    Italian football is notoriously pragmatic and unable to pretend it cares about things that don't matter. And who can blame them? What is the ********ing point of Europa League other than yet another way for UEFA to beat on Italy with a stick?
    Platini can stick the Europa League trophy - not that anyone knows or cares what it's called or what it looks like - up his fat French ass.

    lol u talk like its a conspiracy against italy. everyone goes thru it, only italians are complaining.

    What is the point of it? hmm i dont know a CL spot and more money

    complaining about europa league is like complaining about how the game is 90 min......it is what it is, its not changing, so you can either put up with it or keep complaining and slide down and end up somewhere like the dutch league is today

    i tend to agree with this. we don't waste time on trivial matters like el in italia aha. l

    let a league's performance by it's CL teams merit whether it deserves more or less spots, and i (guess) keep the EL around for ppl to get to see outside of the country they play in

    thisi is a an excuse....why do Spanish teams care about EL instead? they play in a 20-team league like Serie A and, unlike us, don't have to worry about UEFA coefficient.


    mmm Juve is ranked 42th, 4th pot is very likely.

    Who cares what Pot Juve are in because right now not many teams around capable of beating this team as it stands and next year with a couple of signings nobody will want to play Juventus.

    yeah, who ********ing cares. ******** Serie A. ******** Italy. all Juve needs to do is worry about themselves and we'll be fine. Bring in a striker in the mold of Cavani/RVP, Asamoah, Verratti, and a CB for depth and we are going to ********ing TERRORIZE Europe. Along with Serie A. After that, everything will fall into place again. With a strong Juventus comes a strong Serie A.

    Just the fact that we'll be back in the competition is enough for me. The CL is where Juve belong. I imagine there will be some adjustment pains for a side which, for the most part, has little experience in the competition. And, I'm fine with that. We just won the Scudetto, I don't expect to make a run at the CL for a few years.

    We're gonna win it as I dont fear any of those teams. They are all on the downside and the ones that are on the upside like Madrid who havent done nothing in a decade or City who are unproven and went out in group play Juve beat Madrid twice last time in group play and City couldnt beat us when were a 7th place team with terrible players.

    ummm thats the past, can't really base anything on that. Things are different this time around and Mou is an excellent coach, i expect Madrid to do just as well as this season if not better in the CL. City as well, especially if they improve on their teams this summer which they most certainly will. I'm not afraid but definitely cautious and not nearly as biased as you

    Yes they had a clear run to the semis two years in a row. Before that they didnt make it past the 2nd round for 6 years.

    no game is easy in europe. Madrid are a tricky team with Mou in charge, i would like to avoid them in the first round if possible
