Relax! I am not angry with Robin, was just joking. Just found the whole thing so frustrating. We sold Clichy, Toure and Adebayor to City as well and it didn't make sense.

Duncan, I don't blame you...I just love watching Djokovic and most consider him defensive. My first ever live match was him vs Ancic at Wimbledon at 18 and I fell in love with tennis properly that day. Love the gladiatorial aspect of it all. There is no-one else but yourself to blame. In a team sport you can hide, you can't do that in tennis and I love that.

Our biggest rivals will always be Tottenham Hotspur. When they fail I am happy!
Yes, i would say your comparison is accurate. Our biggest rivals are Inter by a good margin, we call it derby d'Italia and the heat with Torino is huge regardless of how well they are doing being from the same city (derby della Mole, or simply derby di Torino). I do remember Adebayor getting mad hate when he left for City, but was to be expected !

I must say i have the greatest respect for players who can play defense all day long, day in day out, I can't do it ! But I get bored watching 60 stroke rallies all the time. Btw, I saw Djokovic for the first time when he was 18 and he played Henman (in Rotterdam). Henman beat him but needed 3 sets to do so. I liked Henman

The hate for Adebayor was based on the rubbish that came out of his mouth. He is a greedy motherfucker only concerned by his wage packet. Still, he plays for an inferior club now so I don't care.

What is the perception of Lorik Cana in Italy? He is one of my favourite players.

Duncan, Henman was brilliant. Did the absolute best he could with his career. We Brits expect too much at times.

Re: Rising Francesco vol. 18

In my first ever live tournament I got to know David Ferrer, and it was on the day I saw him play his first round match there that I really started to respect and to follow him. That tournament is now nearly 10 years ago and I admire him completely for his commitment to the sport and that he really did the most of his possibilities

Agreed. I don't understand how anyone could hate him. He has done the absolute best that he can with the talent and ability he has. He should be applauded for his entire career and the achievements within it.

He's a great player, respected and his importance/presence in Lazio has been increasing. there were once some rumours of him possibly coming to Juve and I was delighted with the idea, but can't say I can complain with Vidal coming instead

Re: Rising Francesco vol. 18

Vidal is class. Really love this new Juve team ever since the match-fixing scandal. A very good side, be interesting to see how they progress.

I love Cana for his effort and commitment. I have never seen anyone put in so much effort. His disciplinary record is hilariously bad as a result.

I know Lorik still from his times at Olympique Marseille. He already there was in every match in danger to get at least a yellow card. I also know Vidal still from his times in Leverkusen and I think Vidal is better than Cana. Yeah I know Vidal also can be a butcher and a headcase, but his level is higher than the one of Cana imo.

He sure was. It's funny watching the brits go nuts with expectation every year at W. But maybe this year with Murray, who knows ?

I'm not a supporter of any of the italian clubs so i'm neutral here
I did follow it closely when Van Basten/Gullit/Rijkaard were playing there though

Yes, I agree, that's why I said that i can't really complain that Vidal was the one who came to Juve. what did you understand? and, yes, his tendency to getting yellow cards in almost every match is a bit dangerous considering he could end up missing important matches now that the calendar is roughing up with crucial matches ahead both in Serie A and CL, so i can just hope he starts hitting with more 'intelligence', can't take his essence off him

I understood you perfectly, I only wanted to explain that I think Vidal is a bit better than Cana

he has that plus of also being able to bring up more danger in attack while still performing just as well at his main role. such a good signing
