Gasperini : "I don't agree with changing the standings during the current championship because they take away the credibility of the tournament".


oh go suck a dick.
I agree with him.

Let's go with -15 pts for each season their books were falsified.

As much as i want to dig into Juve, and being across the world hopefully someone can explain this succinctly.

Juve and other clubs would have done the same thing, including Inter. I recall that our youth players are consistently used like pawns.

So how is Juve different, to us and the broader Serie A sides??

I thought they are punished because of under the table salaries, no?

They basically stole the enormous bag of coins, which everybody used once in a while to pick a coin or two. As always with them, it's the difference in scope or megalomania of it that made them get caught and punished.

That's on the line next.

What is the gist of this is that Juve directors got caught pants down, ie. they were wiretapped talking about inflated player values in the swap deals and such.

Inter and many other clubs have done the same thing but I guess the cold, hard evidence of it made it possible for prosecutors to punish them. In addition, I've understood the amount of deals Juve made is big AND the plain ruthlessness of their operation, for example in the Pjanic-Arthur -swap might have affected in all this. They generated somewhere around 50m+€ plusvalenza out of that swap. When in reality only like 10m€ in cash was really moving anywhere.

Serie A encourages such stuff. In my perception no other league has so many strange loan deals/sells with such strange terms and conditions. It's just another proof of the unprofessional management of this league.

They did it on scale, the rest of serie a did it - understood.

We all know Inter did the same thing, may not be the evidence of scale like Juve but we still did it.

Only in Italy, I don't understand how it is such a clusterfuck.....

The deal with Napoli and Osimhen concerns me. The perception just shows this league is amateur, and we (Serie A) just keep rooting the same bitch with herpes and expect not to get infected. SMH

Yes we did the same thing. Did we get the same advantage? No we did not as the scale of our operations regarding these type of transactions have been lower.

Osimhen deal is certainly a deal they should be looking at.

It's gonna be hilarious when Milan ease to victory against Lazio tonight.
Would you prefer a Lazio win that would put Inter 5th (without Juve in the picture) behind Roma and Lazio due to h2h and just 2 points ahead of 6th Atalanta?

I’m forseeing more a Tonali slow rolling toepoke passing multiple defenders with the goalie rooted in place at the 94’ minute, but I suppose the result is the same.

Milan is not exactly on fire lately so a draw or Lazio win is very possible.

Getting ready to watch Milan vs Lazio, it's on the CBS Sports Network in the US. Looking forward to seeing smokin Sarri ball.

That lazio 11 is straight trash. Sarri deserves huge credit. Can't believe we didn't hire him when conte left
