Well done on yet another trophy Pauker, great to see the drama of a last minute goal :D How has Marquinhos done for Roma?
Woah, pretty dramatic, well done!
@Neal: Thanks, I love dem' dramatic goals :P.. Btw, I checked the coding, and I didn't make a mistake, so it must be a glitch of some sort.

@Walter: Thanks mate :). Marquinhos got his new contract, even if he's shaky and pretty much shit at the moment.

@Jack: Thanks, it was nerve-wrecking! I was writing the extra-time update, before Chiellini headed the ball for glory :)

Juventus T.V.: Permanent Departure List

Hello, and welcome to Juventus T.V. with Cristina Chiabotto! I am your host for today's exclusive departure list, which includes from key-players to players who have been loaned for the past two years.

Cristina Chiabotto

The former Miss Italia 2004 has been Juventus's T.V. official host since Nedved's appointment.

The first official player to move for pastures new was Marco Motta, after he had completed two loans in Catania and recently relegated Bologna. With the quality that Juventus have this year, Marco Motta wouldn't get ahead of players such as Stephan Lichsteiner, Mauricio Isla and Simone Padoin, who all play in his preferred role. Slapping a £2.5 million price tag, Atalanta, Catania and other Italian teams put in the valuation Juventus wanted. However, Juventus wanted all the money upfront, thus making Catania and Atalanta the only clubs whose bids were accepted. After heated negotiations, Marco Motta decided to go for Atalanta, his boyhood club.

Next up is Switzerland international, Reto Ziegler, who failed to make an official appearance as a Juventus player. The player, failing to impress both Conte and Nedved was loaned to Turkey giants Fenerbahce, where he spent the last two seasons, in which the Turkish club paid £1 million to acquire his services for 2 years. But, as Juventus added Pablo Armero and acquired the full rights of Kwadwo Asamoah earlier in the summer, Reto Ziegler fell off the pecking order, and was offered to different clubs in Europe. However he would go off to Celta, as they met the £3.7 million fee that Juventus wanted and lured the player to the warm beaches of Spain.

One of the favorites of Juve's quadruple season, the Montegrin forward was put available in the transfer market, after the Juventus board asked Nedved to raise funds from the player. It all seemed logical, as the former Lecce player was bought from Roma in a £12.75 million fee, and in a few months, the Montegrin international would turn 30. After some negotiations with Liverpool, Schalke 04 and Real Madrid, the player chose the latter, after they offered him to play in the Champions League and a great financial offer. The forward was sold for a fee of £22.5 million fee, which will see Juventus make a juicy profit. Whether Juventus will miss the player, or completely forget the player will be seen in the next months.

Felipe Melo, who joined Juventus 4 years ago for a massive £19.75 million fee from Fiorentina, has officially left Juventus and heads to his new club in London, Tottenham Hotspur. The London based club were looking for a tough box-to-box midfielder after the club parted ways with injury-prone Sandro, who joined Manchester United last summer. After signing Asier Illaramendi from Real Sociedad, Tottenham wanted a player with experience, both internationally and domestically. Felipe Melo, offered in a cut-price deal of £5.75 million fee to clubs, (since his contract was to expire at the end of the season) was offered terms by Ligue 1 champions and as many labelled 'Juventus Scrap Yard' (Over 4 former players play there now) offered the Brazilian player a contract. However, Andre Villas-Boas convinced the Brazilian player with a regular spot in the team.

With all these departures from the Juventus Stadium, will the new Juventus signings fill the holes that the departed players have left? Tune in for the next updates of Juventus T.V., where we will talk about the loan departures and the new arrivals!

Gained Money

Juventus earned over £30 million, with rumors stating that Uruguayan defender, Martin Caceres being available at £15 million.
Nice sales, should give you extra money :D
Too much awesomeness! :O
That'll hopefully earn quite a lot of extra funds, can't wait to see who you buy with that! (If you buy anyone that is)
I'm liking this Cristina Chiabotto. Can she be in more updates please? ;)
@Walter: With what I spent, I need to sell what I sold in a triple figure to keep the finances good.

@Justice: It's just me, I ooze sheer awesomeness.

@Aaron: Hehe, thanks mate :), but I need to sell more players!

@FMProject: Thanks Chloe :) Dave

@Neal: She is a beauty, isn't she? She'll be in every Juventus T.V. update now :)

Pre-Season Review
Only conceding 2 times in this pre-season, I was relatively happy to see that the new signings get along so quickly, especially the defensive acquisitions. Not only that, but Llorente scored some goals to get him started ahead of the league opener against Catania.
2013-10-11 20:10#137508 Pauker :
@Louis: A.C. Milan suck, even in Fifa! They put some of their shittiest players (Bonera, Constant and others) as high 70's!

Yep, they do suck and the thing froze so I lost about 2 months of progress. I'm not continuing that save so go Juve! No longer my rivals!
Good pre-season, its nice to see Anjos score :)
solid pre-season and a bit of extra silverware;)
A great preseason Pauker, hopefully you can transmit that form into the regular season :)
