You don't know who Cavani is? :O
The other two, fair enough (I still know who they are)

Nedved reveals injury crisis

Andrea Pirlo

The new manager of Juventus F.C., Pavel Nedved has spoken his anger to recent injuries to the Juventus first team. With players such as Caceres, Buffon and now maestro playmaker, Andrea Pirlo injured, he revealed his frustration to how Serie A players tackle on to their rivals.

Nedved stated in Juventus's official site by saying," It's weird how people like to have a wild tackle at our palyers and they don't get red cards. When someone has to go off-field or even rushed to the hospital I believe it should be a red card." The statement continued by saying," The FIGC has to do something about this. It's unbelievable."

With Nedved's official comments about this, it remains unknown whether the Italian Federation will take action on this, after he said that he was frustrated how some calls were not called. But, the fans seem all behind Juventus, who had seen their midfielder get tackled from behind and not even receive a yellow card.

The Italian midfielder, will not be able to feature in any of the two games that Juve will play, after he was ruled out for three weeks after he twisted his ankle. However, the manager decided not to inject the midfielder with substances for him to be available for the next match against Catania. They will surely miss Pirlo in both the matches of Catania and Braga.

August: A Winning Start

Chievo Verona 0 - 2 Juventus F.C.

Saturday 28th August 2012 – Serie A TIM – Marcantonio Bergardi, Verona – Att. 19,725

Juventus starting XI (3-1-4-2) Storari, Sakho, Bonucci, Peluso, Pirlo, Marchisio, Vidal, Asamoah, Lichsteiner, Vucinic, Cavani

Edinson Cavani (1) and Leonardo Bonucci (87)

Subs Peluso and Giovinco

Leonardo Bonucci (8.8)

Having Gigi out is frightening, but hopefully he was going to be available for the next match. However, with Chiellini coming back we could surely give Storari and the team a clean sheet. In the middle of the park, we had five amazing players. Pirlo, Asamoah, Lichsteiner, Vidal and Marchisio to provide the possesion and create chances for both Vucinic and Cavani. We got off to a fantastic start thanks to our new signing Cavani, who by 29 seconds, had already scored for a Juventus shirt. By the end of the game, Bonucci headed the ball home and we went back to Turin with a great win.

Nice one mate kkep it up!
I do wish you would update more often Pauker. Do miss your stories!
The title says it all. A winning start to propel Juve to glory :)
@Beany: Thanks mate! If I can accomplish no more than five losses, I'd be extremely happy!

@James: I've been updating this story ever since I could! Thanks for giving it a read :P.

@TSO: Indeed. #REDARMY

@Louis: A winning start is always great mate! #REDARMY

Matri to leave Juventus

Alessandro Matri is likely to leave Italy, according to various reports on the internet. After being transfer listed for a fee of 8.5 million by his new manager, Pavel Nedved, it seems that the Italian player will make way for another striker, most likely Jovetic, who is transfer listed by request. The attacking player, was initially brought on loan from Cagliari in January 2011 snd managed to score a total of 9 goals in 16 appearances, impressing the Juventus staff. Swiftly, the staff at Juventus quickly took action on his clause in the loan deal, of 13.75 million pounds. The player inked a four year deal, earning 50,000 pounds per week.

However in his second season at Juventus, it hasn't gone all well for the player. He suffered an injury that would at least rule him out until late November. However, he managed to play 31 matches throughout the whole season, scoring a measle 10 goals, which of course, isn't enough for a team like Juventus. But, Antonio Conte renewed hope for the player, as he activated a clause to add an extra two years in Matri's contract, as he signed another deal, this time of 72,000 pounds per week. But, when Conte stepped down as Juventus manager and Nedved was announced as manager, Matri's future was in doubt. People thought that Matri would be a regular because, with the first two matches of the pre-season he started up for Juventus. All would've changed when now, star player, Edinson Cavani joined for a huge fee of 35 million.

Quickly, the player started being in the shadows of the Uruguayan talisman and lost his starting spot. Now, at the age of 28, it seems that Matri will end his two year stint at Juventus, and move to high European clubs. With teams such as Paris Saint Germain, Atletico Madrid and the current Bundesliga champions Borussia Dortmund circling around the player, he will have plenty of offers to choose of.

Nedved to use Matri as a heavy-weight

After Juventus failed to sign Fiorentina star in the summer transfer window, they will launch another attempt for the Montegrin forward, which most likely be by the region of 5 million pounds plus Matri. Of course, Fiorentina seem to want only cash, after the player handed in an official transfer request late into the transfer window. With teams such as Chelsea and Paris Saint Germain looking for a striker, and with Jovetic priced at a low amount of 14.5 million pounds they might as well found their man.

However, Nedved will try to seal the deal before the winter transfer window, as many teams will most likely quickly act during that time period. With Matri transfer listed, Nedved seems to want to exchange the player and offer some cash for Jovetic, but it seems that Fiorentina will not be selling him to a rival. With Mirko Vucinic, Jovetic's friend and international team-mate, has counseled him to join him at Turin. The Montegrin captain used his Twitter account to express his feelings towards Jovetic.

It said..

Jovetic, you should join us here at Juve! I've heard that Nedved's interested in you, and when he only buys three players in a transfer window, it means you are top notch! Will I see you in January with a Juve shirt? @StevanJ

This surely means that this be the end of Jovetic's future at the Viola. Whether he stays until January or holds on to a move on the summer remains unknown..

Stevan Jovetic
Great start although shame about the injuries, Jovetic is an epic player :D
Awesome updates and some great transfers! Cavani is just a beast

Nedved 'nervous' ahead of Juve's match against Braga

In Pavel Nedved's pre-match conference against Portuguese giants, SC Braga, he has revealed that he was 'nervous'. The away team, SC Braga qualified to the Champions League Group Stages after they won their qualifying match. The Turin giants have not participated European football for 4 years, after they got beaten on away goals against Fulham FC in the Europa League in 2009-2010 season. The former Juventus player, who is their manager took the pre-match conference slightly relaxed, until a reporter, Kane Brooker asked 'The Question'.

All can agree that Nedved should be nervous, after this will also be his first European match of his managerial career, and of course, he would start it with a win. To add to that, Juventus favourite, Alex del Piero, said that Juventus shouldn't get complacent, as Braga might pull some trees. Below, we will have a deep insight of what Braga would play against Juventus, at the Juventus Stadium.

At goal, we have Quim, who has played for his current club 13 years and another 6 years at Benfica. The Portuguese goalkeeper has thus far conceded only 6 goals in 4 appearances during the Portuguese Premier League. Whether the goalkeeper with hold Juventus's on fire strikers, Mirko Vucinic and Edinson Cavani, might just win the match for Braga.

On right hand of the defense we have Baiano, that until now, has managed a decent enough rating in all of the matches he has featured. If he could hold out Asamoah from crossing the ball and having some shots at goal, the Braga team can breathe easier.

On the middle of the defense, we have Jardel, who is currently on loan from their rivals, Benfica. However, not everything has gone to plan for the player, who has had an awful injury, and the Champions League match against Juventus will see him line up after 3 weeks out on injury. Many believe that he won't be at the same pace of Edinson Cavani or Mirko Vucinic, giving the pair of strikers an easier way to score goals.

Pairing up with Jardel, will be Nuno Andre Coelho who has experience at Portugal's top clubs. Boasting teams such as now, Braga, Sporting Lisbon and reigning champions, FC Porto, Juventus will have a hard time beating the defender. Stats show that Coelho has similar speed to Juventus striker, Mirko Vucinic, who has been their main man at the moment, assisting or scoring the goals.

On the left side of the defense will be Brazilian left-back Diogo. Following his recent move to Braga, the player has excelled at his role and pundits have said that he could easily stop either Isla or Lichsteiner. The left-back will probably be going forward with the wingers should he silence Lichsteiner.

On Braga's three man midfield, Ruben Amorim will be playing as a centre midfield, defending all sort of attacks. The midfielder is having a second consecutive loan spell at the club, after impressing during his six month stint the past season. If he can play like he has this season, Braga could have a chance of picking a point, or collecting all possible three.

Next up, is Ruben Micael, who recently returned to Portugal after a two year stint in Spain. He played at Atletico Madrid, but failed to make any appearances, and had a loan spell at Zaragoza, which was particularly successful, who made Braga pay 2 million pounds for the player. Should he be given space, the Portuguese player could get a shot, or even better, an assist.

Last on Braga's three man midfield, is Leandro Salino, who has played already two seasons in Braga, entering his third. Salino, is known for his amazing defending and with his recent form and along with Ruben Amorim, Juventus could have trouble creating chances.

Heading Braga's three man attack, is new signing from Japan, Carlao. The Brazilian player has scored already three goals in the Portuguese Premier League, thanks to assists by Helder Barbosa and captain Alan.

On the left wing, we have Helder Barbosa, who will play his third season at Braga, after proving his qualities at Vitoria Setubal and during his youth career at Braga's rivals Porto. He has already assisted twice to Carlao and once to the captain Alan.

Last but not least, club captain Alan will have to play at his best today, if his side will want to pick any sort of points. Already 5 years at Braga, the Portuguese player has scored 2 goals and assisted 1 for his team. Alan, who has the most experience in the squad (33 years), will hope to lead his club into the Knockout Stages of the Champions League.

Thanks for joining us at the 'Champions League Review' of the match between Juventus and SC Braga! Signing off, it's Kane Brooker!
