@Walter: Yes I hate them too as well! I will try to do that in Turin! Thanks for the love in the comments :P.

@Rab: Thanks! Amorebieta is a player that was brought in for squad depth! I did say that my team had fixture congestion! Love you baba!
The late equalizer must have been a kick in the teeth.finish them off in the second leg!
@Arvind: Yeah, the team slowly fell asleep with the switch of position from Vidal to Pirlo's role and Bertolacci coming in... Even though we could've won 2-1 (Bonucci made a terrible mistake) we will go and play our lives in the pitch at Turin, where we have 2 crucial away goals :). Thanks for reading and commenting mate.

We can win AC Milan clash: Nedved

Pavel Nedved, the current manager of Juventus, took several questions about player performance and the next fixture from Corriere delle Sport, the Italian Football Daily and World Soccer Magazine in the build-up to Juventus' Serie A match against AC Milan.

The Italian Football Daily took main focal point for the conference with Giacomo Cordene asking,"Your last meeting with A.C. Milan took place in the Juventus Stadium in Turin. What do you make of this match?"

I believe that we can definitely win this match, or maybe grab a point at San Siro, who knows. With the Vucinic, Jovetic and Cavani all in form, we might change our tactic to make all these three players play for this match.

Corriere delle Sport questioned Nedved about Pirlo by saying,"Pirlo came in two years ago on a free transfer from Milan. Do you think that the fans will treat him well or bad?"

I think that any type of football fan should acknowledge that Milan made a terrible mistake on letting Pirlo go, and we took him with open arms. He became an even better player than he was in Milan and for that, any football fan should like Andrea (Pirlo)."

Before the press conference ended, World Soccer Magazine asked one final question they asked how Nedved thought Ancelotti as a manager. Nedved said,"Carlo Ancelotti is a manager that has worked in Serie A before and he knows what he's doing. Last time I played against AC Milan it was against Allegri, so anything can happen here. We might win by a big margin, lose, draw, anything can happen. I also believe that Ancelotti is one of the best managers in today's world. There's a reason why he has coached teams like Milan, PSG and Chelsea."
Here is your comment use it wisely :D :D

Your front 3 is insane! Cav,Jov and Vucinic! Good Luck with the game in the San Siro!

Super Update as is the norm from you! :)
Yay, this is back. Nice to see it again Pauker. Great update and of course you can beat AC, your squad is amazing and there's is pretty ordinary.
@Wellsy: WTF.

@Nathaniel: Add Giovinco, Immobile and Anelka, with Llorente joining in the summer :P.

@Jozef: Thanks, it was to my best pleasure when I saw this. Yeah, but with Ancelotti there, you can expect the unexpected.
Are you really looking to bleed Immobile in? It would be a great move, as you can develop him into exactly what you need with the club, and he is class. Perhaps, if you want, you could also bring Paloschi and Destro in, mmmh?

Also, Andrea Poli as Pirlo's heir?

Shame about the Barcelona match. Although, it was away, so you should be fine...
Great updates since the story comeback :) Keep it up m8 and knock Barca out!
Some great updates mate! keep up the good work and win the league without any defeat!
@TBendis: I'm looking to loan him out next season, as he just has had about 5 games in a Juve shirt and I don't think he will add more (CL wise). Paloschi, Icardi, Belfodil and Destro are potential signings for the future, when either Cavani or Jovetic get older. With any of those + Immobile, I have the future Italian frontline. I also have considered Poli as Pirlo's heir, as he is transfer listed by request, but I am currently doubting to move for him, as Pogba could also become Pirlo's heir. The Barca match was a tough match, but it isn't an excuse for us to concede late into the game and commit mistakes. Thanks for commenting and reading.

@Raph: Thanks mate! Will try to do so and I will try do just that!

@AAN: It's going to be a tough way there, but if we continue and we don't get important players with red cards, it's all possible :)

February: Dominating the Serie A

Juventus F.C. 3 - 0 Cagliari

Sunday 10th February 2013 – Serie A TIM – Juventus Stadium, Turin – Att. 37,913

Juventus starting XI (3-1-4-2) Buffon, Sakho, Chiellini, Bonucci, Pirlo, Bertolacci, Vidal, Pepe, Isla, Vucinic, Jovetic

Mirko Vucinic (45+2,68) Stevan Jovetic (71)

Subs Marrone and Amorebieta

Mirko Vucinic (8.8)

After knowing that Barcelona were going to be our rivals, I decided to play Bertolacci instead of Marchisio, who was extremely tired. The in-form Vucinic and Jovetic were paired, where both of the strikers scored good decent goals. Even though it was a tricky match, Vucinic, Jovetic and Pirlo were all key to winning this match, as well as Sakho, who left the match during the last 10 minutes to make way to new loan signing Fernando Amorebieta from Athletico Bilbao.

Roma 1 - 3 Juventus F.C.

Saturday 16th February 2013 – Serie A Tim – Olimpico, Rome – Att. 45,131

Juventus starting XI (3-1-4-2) Buffon, Sakho, Chiellini, Bonucci, Pirlo, Bertolacci, Vidal, Pepe, Isla, Vucinic, Jovetic

Andrea Pirlo (24) Stevan Jovetic (46) and Mamadou Sakho (58)

Subs Marchisio, Amorebieta and Immobile

Giorgio Chiellini (8.8)

Perhaps a test-game to what was going to be the Coppa Italia final, and again, Edinson Cavani found himself in the bench. Even though Vucinic didn't score, he provided precise and crisp passes, assisting Jovetic's goal. But, I've noticed something about Pirlo. He has become slower, and gets tired more often than he did last season.. Is it the age that's affecting him? Who knows, but he is still an instrumental part of the team, scoring an amazing free-kick goal.

F.C. Barcelona 2 - 2 Juventus F.C.

Wednesday 20th February 2013 – Champions League First Knockout Round First Leg – Camp Nou, Catalunya – Att. 97,660

Juventus starting XI (3-1-4-2) Buffon, Sakho, Chiellini, Bonucci, Pirlo, Marchisio, Vidal, Isla, Asamoah, Jovetic, Vucinic

Mamadou Sakho (16) Mirko Vucinic (53)

Subs Bertolacci, Cavani and Padoin

Javier Mascherano (8.8)

This perhaps was going to be the hardest match yet for the team. With Asamoah returning after a relevantly successful African Cup of Nations, I was hoping that he could provoke some damage.. However, Chiellini assisted Sakho when he gave a long throw-in. Throughout the match, we drifted in out, but any type of attacks, Pirlo would be there to save the day. But, when the second half started, we were comfortable with the ball, and Vucinic scored a great goal. After that, we were always in the defensive way, and that's why I believe that we surrended the lead to Barca, to make it a tough way back to Turin..

Juventus F.C. 4 - 0 Genoa C.F.C.

Sunday 24th February 2013 – Serie A TIM – Juventus Stadium, Turin – Att. 38,163

Juventus starting XI (3-1-4-2) Buffon, Sakho, Bonucci, Chiellini, Pirlo, Vidal, Marchisio, Isla, Padoin, Jovetic, Cavani

Edinson Cavani (13,58,83) and Claudio Marchisio (44)

Subs Marrone, Giovinco and Bertolacci

Edinson Cavani (9.9)

As Jovetic failed to impress in the Barcelona match, Cavani was given a start ahead of him, and boy did he impress me. All this time, waiting for a lone, single chance to break back to the team. Scoring a hat-trick (could've been 4 but Vidal took the penalty and missed), the player rises up to over 30 goals in his first Juventus season, something that Juventus had needed throughout the many years. Marchisio, also assisting to Cavani regularly, grabbed a goal himself, which was assisted by his close-friend, Cavani.

A.C. Milan 2 - 4 Juventus F.C.

Wednesday 27th February 2013 – Serie A TIM – San Siro, Milan – Att. 37,818

Juventus starting XI (3-1-4-2) Buffon, Bonucci, Chiellini, Sakho, Bertolacci, Vidal, Marchisio, Asamoah, Isla, Jovetic, Cavani

Edinson Cavani (19,59,65) and Stevan Jovetic (71)

Subs Pirlo,

Edinson Cavani (9.4)

With Milan changing new managers this month, I was scared on how Ancelotti would play against me and boy, did he impress me. Scoring two goals (last encounter 1) and a match that could've gone either way, we were lucky to beat our arch-rivals and take the three points home. However, not everything went their way, as Edinson Cavani scored his second hat-trick in a row, and proved that he could score against anyone.

Player of the Month

The player of the month is none other than our re-juvenated striker, Edinson Cavani, who scored an impressive 6 goals 5 appearances. He scored against teams like Genoa and Milan who were not handing us the game like other teams normally do.
Cavani's on fire! Good results!
Back with a bang! A much needed lift to the story forums here, you really are a brilliant writer! This story, without a doubt, is one of the best around. This story doesn't have potential, because it's already world class :P

In all seriousness, this has made me get back in to reading stories. I hope you can keep this going and stun the world :)
