Locatelli uber alles. Great maneuvers by Juventus around the Sassuolo midfielder and the national team. Is he the right man to revitalize Juventus’ midfield? Strange to say but the Juventus fans wrinkle their noses. They dream of Pogba’s return. But the Octopus will hardly return to Turin. Only a possible transfer of Ronaldo to Manchester United could make a complicated business take off, in any case, even without Cr7. Strange doubts, however, on the part of those who had to swallow the Arthurs and the Rabiots, the Ramseys and an anarchist Texan.
Modest reflection that I turn to readers. On my own, Locatelli is a half-winger, not a director. But if you put a Goretzka (who refused the renewal with Bayern at the moment) next to Locatelli (let’s leave Pogba alone), then you can play two in midfield. And the “director” you can have Dybala do it. With two wings (Juve have many) and a center forward. I read and certain readings (Gosens) make me dream. But being a realist I tend to keep my feet on the ground. And so I believe that Juventus will operate two-at most three grafts. And if one of these will be, let’s say Pellegrini (opaque season at Genoa) I can only turn up my nose. I am curious to see (if he arrives early) Rovella: because Rovella is a director who seems to me to be gifted with running and technique. And since Paratici is no longer there, I would tend to rule out a new Romero case.
The national team has the opportunity to lead the way. Austria has an experienced coach in “macumbe” but apart from Alaba it has no stars. It is a good team that plays Italian style. The national team should avoid swelling the chest and above all avoid getting caught. Austria is beatable: as long as you don’t underestimate it.
They criticized the Armani jackets that King Giorgio signed for the national team. Paolo Beldì, legendary director pointed out to Ale Bonan (congratulations to both) that the jackets are similar to those used in a famous concert by the Beatles. In the face of the keyboard lions to which they had seemed “like a waiter”.
I will cheer for the national team. I always have. Even if seeing Mancini, Oriali and Evani (Vialli, no: he wore it) without mourning on the arm to honor the memory of Giampiero Boniperti made me angry. Boniperti wasn’t just the man called Juventus. It was a football monument and look a bit, even a federal executive. A few days later also Luis Del Sol, star (the only one with Salvadore) of the Juve worker of Heriberto Herrera, who surprisingly won the Scudetto over Inter Milan, passed away.
Kneeling or standing? With the rainbow stadium or without colors? With the final in London or due to Delta variant elsewhere? I abstain on the first two. For the third, words to the wind. Boris the red was the politician who spent the most in favor of Ceferin and against the Super League: so even under torture Ceferin would not move the final from London. And as a demonstration of how dangerous this man is for football, he abolished the rule of away goals. “Because he no longer attacked anyone,” he explained. On the other hand, if you make a golletto at home, on your return Mourinho’s bus will look like a station wagon. Let it bet?
In my lagoon they would say: “El xe proprio un gran mona”.
I close with Naples and with two beautiful spirits who, at the cry of “Naples Capital” (and maybe alive the Bourbons and down with the Piedmontese) hoisted an immense black-and-white jacket in the Piazzale della Stazione with the inscription: “Garibaldi is Juventus”. Now Peppino our Juventus, while alive, did not have the opportunity to cross it, let alone cheer it on. But basically Rivellini and Lauro are right: Garibaldi is Juventus. Giuseppe Garibaldi united and divided the country at the same time. Just like Juventus. He says that in Italy there are many clubs and many supporters. This is partly true. In reality, in Italy there are Juventus and “anti-Juventini”. A gentleman wrote a polite letter to Tony Damascelli to the “Giornale” celebrating the greatness of Giampiero Boniperti. “But – concluded the gentleman – Boniperti had a big flaw: he was a Juventus player”. By the way: his friend Giampa Ormezzano, heart grenade, excellent signature, after crying for days he wrote the best piece – among those who have dedicated themselves – about Giampiero.
