    Wow. Deja vu all over again? Is that news or just your speculation?

    Does Juve have RM status in Italy? I feel like there is a lot of political capital in punishing Juve.

    Haven't really followed France this cup. But do know that MG hasn't gotten any minutes until today when DD made major rotations. He started and made it to 79' before he was taken off.

    I think it's political based on territorial and historical flashpoints. Calciopoli for one, Florence has had it in for Juve since Baggio left, et. al.

    Oops, guess I misread that one. Vanity is only so powerful when faced with $4 Million a week for 2.5 years. Jesus.

    it's always easy to say you'd say no to that type of money until it's offered to you. i mean, mad props to tiger woods for saying no but not a lot of people would.

    This appears to be at the board and executive level, but it would be even more Sp*rsy If Conte was entangled in this too.

    Some of this stuff was apparent and reported on when he was hired.

    But football is a business where fraud is allowed apparently

    Juve's fate doesn't really bother me much. Especially given their past history and past Italian football scandals.

    Probably my biggest concerns short-term are that it doesn't get inside Weston McKennie's head in any negative way, given what's on his plate right now in Qatar, and that it doesn't negatively impact AWFC's ability to beat Juve at home next week, and start to cement our place in the KO rounds of WUCL.

    I don't mind if you call me me narrow minded and self centered.

    If Juventus do get relegated over cooking the books, does anyone think there is any chance their players will be as loyal as the last time they were relegated?

    Apparently a wiretap had someone at Juve saying said this was as bad as Calciopoli.

    It's far worse since it involved FFP; we might be approaching "Liverpool after Heysel" territory here.

    Amazing that a complete criminal would be hired to work at a top English club

    But we all know the English lads are 100% honest unlike the crooked italians so no need to look into it

    i don't follow them in general so i went to peek at their first team names. it looks like they have all of 3 players amongst their first team who came up through their ranks: fabio miretti, nicolo fagioli, and carlo pinsoglio (and he was sold on that 50% thing they have for a while) along with daniele rugani came to them during youth football time.

    i have to agree with you, that doesn't feel like a setup that inspires loyalty during down times.

    You know, I had always wondered why did they built such a smaller stadium in comparison to the supposed stature of the club. Now? Sounds like a good bit of forward thinking considering they may spend years in the lower leagues.

    I had seen people saying "surely Juve don't get relegated for this" when the stories broke, and now those people are rolling those stories back/deleting those tweets because Juve are now in deep shit.
    Couldn't happen to a nicer club.
