    Six years later, three World Cup winners still left.....I though Gilardino and De Rossi would be picked too, however.

    DeRossi was not picked because he got a red card for giving a punch in today's derby. Prandelli will not use a player who is disciplined for major causes.

    Perfect time for Pirlo Marchisio Giovinco and Prandelli to convince Balotelli that he should go to Juventus and get the hell out of Manchester.

    You really don't get picked for a national team cap because of a red card in a league match? Never knew that....

    It is a discipline rule for Prandelli. Balotelli sat out in the past for similar reasons. Nothing to do with the league.

    If Italy had Vidal instead of De Rossi they'd win the world cup easily.

    That is a lot of disrespect for one of the best holding midfielders we've ever seen.

    The kid seems to have a good head on his shoulder. He has the making of a real Juventino. Let's hope he ignores his asshole agent.

    Comment from Alessio on striker selection ....


    I have also read that Conte decides on the characteristics of the opponents. So it is difficult for any of our strikers to be that big goal scorer other than Vucinic, who always seems to play. Anyone notice that we have scored 10 goals in his absence?

    Conte answers Juventus fans
    By Football Italia staff

    Suspended Juventus boss Antonio Conte has broken his silence by taking part in a webchat with the club’s supporters.
    The tactician hasn’t spoken to the media in recent months while he serves a ban for failing to report an attempt to fix a Siena game while he was in charge of the Tuscans.
    Conte can train the side during the week, but he is unable to sit on the touchline during Bianconeri matches. He’ll return on December 9.
    “I say to those who judge me that they should try to live one day as a guilty man when you are in fact innocent,” he stated.
    “Do I miss the bench? My wife has constructed one at home for me! I watch television on it…
    “It is inevitable that I miss the contact with the players and the fans. I’ve had to triple my workload as a consequence.
    “I could intervene during a game before so now everything is a lot more difficult. But I have excellent collaborators and responsible players. Excellent professionals who help me a lot. I’ve been able to get into their heads, but I miss the pitch a lot.”
    Conte’s Juventus had gone on a 49 game unbeaten League run until Inter came to Turin and collected a 3-1 victory.
    “Juventus have never lost their hunger,” he stated. “We were less intense than usual against Inter. The defeat made us understand that we have to always play with intensity.
    “I have to compliment Inter though, they’ll fight for the title with us.”
    Turning to his side’s chances of winning the Champions League, he admitted that his club are handicapped financially.
    “We have to remember where we came from. If Roberto Mancini and Carlo Ancelotti say that Manchester City and Paris SG need years to win the Champions League, with their investments, then we’ll never win it… Fortunately, money is not all that counts.”
    Their European progress has been hampered somewhat by a shock 1-1 draw against Nordsjelland.
    “We have to take things a step at a time. And we don’t look back. The draw in Denmark was right, even if we had a host of important chances.
    “It made me laugh to read that Nordsjelland were considered as a Serie C side. They are an excellent team who deserve to be in the Champions League.”
    Conte also spoke highly of Paul Pogba, the midfielder who he dropped at the weekend for failing to be on time for training.
    “I didn’t hesitate at all in giving him a starting shirt in Serie A at the age of 19. I made my Serie A debut at 16.
    “It’s up to me and him to turn him into a champion. He’s a good lad off the pitch and has the potential to be the world’s best.”
    On his policy to continually rotate his strikers, he said: “I have five attackers in the squad and it is hard to keep three on the bench.
    “But what I am interested in is that they always provide answers when they play. They are all as good as each other, they just have different characteristics.”
    He also defended the use of his 3-5-2. “I’m more concerned about the principles of play than numbers. The 4-3-3 is the most defensive system we use. The formation we now adopt is super offensive.”

    The best Quagliarella ever?
    By Football Italia staff
    [​IMG]
    Juventus’ Fabio Quagliarella believes that he is in the form of his life following a glittering start to the 2012-13 campaign.
    Despite not being guaranteed a starting shirt, the forward has scored six goals in just five Serie A starts this season.
    And after his hat-trick in the 6-1 win at Pescara on Saturday, he’s averaging a League goal every 65 minutes so far this term.
    “I am not surprised to be scoring so much,” he told Tuttosport. “I have realised that I’m calmer and cooler in front of goal now.
    “A few years ago I was frantic in search of goals, but I’ve matured more. Perhaps this is the best moment of my career.
    “I feel stronger than I did before the injury. It will be coming up to two years in January and I’ve really grown since then.”
    Quagliarella ruptured knee ligaments at the start of 2010 and he’s been slowly re-introduced back to action by boss Antonio Conte.
    “Conte has always said that us five strikers are first team players, but it is obviously up to him to make the decisions,” the forward added.
    “We all know that if we play like he tells us to then it will be difficult for the opposition. I hope to continue scoring, but what matters is that the team wins.”

    It's definitely Fabio's olive oil voice and guinea charm that has allowed him to be so strong this season.

    I've loved Fabio since he arrived, and I would hate to see him leave. I really wish that he would get more playing time.

    Remember last season when you guys were freaking out about Conte not using Quags even though he was fit now and I said Conte was just being extra careful to bring him in because of that serious injury? I think I was right.

    Conte :thumbsup:

    Anyone else also notice that we hadn't scored 6 goals away since 1997? Let's not get too hopped up on the number of goals scored against Nordsjaelland and the Zeman-mentality Pescara. :p

    I would love to see a rotation of Gio-Quags and Vucinic-Bendtner/Quags. I really think that Bendtner can give something to this attack.

    Yes, yes, let's close his case after 2 or 3 games instead of giving him a fair run ala Borriello.

    Perfect quote for a certain member here who threw him under the bus in favor of his beloved FIGC's precious rules.

    If Borriello was going to give something to our attack, I would've suggested herpes.

    Which is what I'm saying. Bendtner deserves one too.

    He's done according to many around here. I still think Matri-Quagliarella is our best duo up front.

    Lazio president Lotito says that Lazio would never score six goals against their opponents as a sign of respect.
