I'd like to thank everyone for helping me reach 10,000 views. I know that it has been a tough road, with my computer out half of the time that the story has been on. Nevertheless, I'd like to thank my followers and people who comment, who have been reading, even since I restarted it, a couple weeks ago. Remember, Juve > Italian teams, and FORZA JUVE!

Juventus Announce New 2013-2014 Kits

Today, Juventus officials opened the doors of the Juventus Stadium, to show the new kits of the upcoming season, which includes Fly Emirates and Puma as their main sponsors. But, many reporters didn't expect former Miss Italy, Cristina Chiabotto to parade through the stadium with the new kits with her sexy lady friends. To add to that, various players like Leonardo Bonucci, Andrea Pirlo, Claudio Marchisio and main striker Edinson Cavani walked through the pitch with the three new kits, which include a home, away and a third alternate kit.

This year's home kit is the most alike from last season, as they take their white and black stripes once again. After opting against renewing with Nike and Jeep, Puma and Fly Emirates quickly pounced at the opportunity to be their main sponsors this season, giving the Turin side a new look with their kits. However, the home kit has a distinctive collar, which the second and third kit do not have.

The second kit is has been applauded by many football forums, and at the same time, hated. Using black as their main color, they have added a pinch of purple, which makes the kit unique, and special. However, many 'classic' Juventus fans are against the shirt, as it doesn't have anything Juve-esque over the years.

The final and third kit to be unveiled is much like the second one, loved by many, and hated by others. Most neutral fans will be looking to take home the Juventus third kit, as it looks very suitable to any person who uses it. Using a different color than the classic white and black, it brings an aqua color on the sides

Remember, these kits are available at where the prices range from toddlers to adults! You can add your favorite players name to the shirt for an extra bit of money, and it will be shipped to you for free to all of the parts of the world!

Author's Note

After hours of finding the best kits, Justice, aka Gaylord, obligated to choose out of the best ones... If you don't like them, you know who to blame..

Horrible kits :))
Nice kits, and nice update too Pauker :D
They look like Newcastle kits but very nice.

P.S. There isn't a member called "Pauker and Justice" so I can't thank him
@Neal: Blame the main man behind the curtains, Justice.

@Walter: Thanks mate, first time I've done that kind of update. :D

@Jack: Hahaha! Tell Justice, not me!

Juventus T.V.: Co-Ownership List

Hello, and welcome to Juventus T.V. with Cristina Chiabotto! I am your host for today's exclusive co-ownership list, which includes young players arriving here at Juventus, while some of them stay at their respective clubs!

Cristina Chiabotto

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

The first official player to agree a co-ownership deal with Juventus was Parma and Algeria international, Ishak Belfodil. The striker, who formed a spectacular partnership with former Juventus flop, Amauri, was heavily linked to top Italian clubs before the season came to an end. However, Juventus acted quickly, and paid £2.5 million for 50% of the player's right. The player, who participated in over 25 goals last season, was ecstatic to sign for Juventus, and at the same time, remain at Parma. For such a player wanting first-team time, and signing for one of the biggest clubs in the world, Ishak Belfodil has just achieved that, with his impressive performances last term.

Next up is relevantly unknown youngster, Luca Savelloni. They Italian youngster, impressed Juventus scouts last season in his sole official appearance for Pescara, which he made a string of impressive saves, but ended conceding. The youngster is also fresh from achieving a European Championship runner-up medal, with Italy's U19 squad. The youngster, was one of the main reasons why Italy got to the final in the first place. It is rumored that Juventus paid £500,000 for 50% of the players right, which could be seen as a future bargain, depending on how the player develops at Pescara or at Juventus.

A player that has been highly regarded by the Italian media and the Italian national team, Genoa's striker, Mattia Destro, Genoa agreed to give up half of the striker's rights. The former Inter youth product has had successful loan periods at Siena, Genoa and Roma, in which the latter held him last season. The player, hitting double digits, made Juventus cough up a £3 million fee, which is certainly a bargain fee for such a player. The Italian player, was even sought after he agreed to sign for Juventus by Napoli, who is rumored to offer £2.7 million fee for Juventus to give up the 50% of the ownership of the player.

Mattia Destro

A.C. Milan's Mattia De Sciglio, who practically forced this deal with Juventus, will be forced to stay at least for one season at A.C. Milan, as it was agreed in the deal. The player, who returned from Fiorentina, was injured for over 4 months last season, which he is now recovering with game-time. However, Juventus seem to be confident of agreeing a deal for the player to move next season to Turin, as they coughed up £7 million just for 50% of the players rights. Many people believe that they have paid too much, but with De Sciglio seen as a potential world-beater and Lichsteiner's heir, it will be soon told whether Juventus made a wise investment or not.

Luca Caldirola, who just finished his 2 year loan at Brescia, was quickly snapped up by Catania, who paid a £2.1 million fee to acquire his full services. After Juventus missed on Caldirola, in order to pay attention to other targets, Nedved himself flew to Catania, and spoke to Catania manager,Rolando Maran, about the possibility of buying 50% of the players rights. Nedved, agreeing to pay a £1 million fee and letting the player stay at Catania, is rumored to travel back to Turin with Caldirola himself in a road-trip, with the player and the manager talking a number of topics before reaching the Juventus Stadium.

Money Used & Rumors

Juventus spent an exact amount of £14 million, with rumors stating that Italian midfielder, Andrea Poli will join Juve's strong squad by the end of the transfer window.
Good update, nice targets and signing and chicks.

Please don't slap me.
Some really good signings there... and I actually know who all of them are.

Team Reaction

PN: Pavel Nedved

GB: Gigi Buffon

AP: Andrea Pirlo

GC: Giorgio Chiellini

Around 15 minutes after the draw...
PN: Okay team, huddle up. We need to retain our crown against Hannover and Bilbao will face a tough task. With the reinforcements and the current team we had, we will probably win the Champions League again. But please, do not get cocky! FORZA JUVE!

GB: FORZA JUVE! I'll do my best boss. Of course we won't get cocky, we want to be the best team in the world, and finish this season unbeaten!

AP: I will pull the strings in the midfield Pavel. Me and Chiellini will also try to hold the attack from attempting anything at our goal.

GC: I agree.
