    we scored 2 early with that same 2 man midfield. we have to go on.

    to drop that deep probably kills the attacking players confidence and only builds it up for tottenham when they can control and grow into the game for the next 35minutes.

    This.

    Plus Aurier is suspended so I don't know if they can match DC's pace...they couldn't tonight.
    2017/2018 - 43 injuries.

    They played like they owned the place. They’re $#@!ing Tottenham, not Barcelona. You don’t allow your adversary to have that much possession.

    Having said that at least this result will guarantee we play for the win in London.

    our lack of a plan B

    I Know many here criticised me for what i saw against spurs in pre season but it was literally an identical performance to tonight, all the more pissed off as we were 2-0 up and playing at home.

    Control of the game was lost in midfield. Matuidi is a shocking miss, even more so when Khedira is not even taking part in the game and Pjanic is going through a horrible spell using the ball. It obviously needed another man, Mandzukic played on one leg, and then Allegri swapped it like-for-like when Bentancur and Marchisio are on the bench....

    I think basically we didn't have a clue what to do with the lead, and you could see Allegri was furious storming off down the tunnel again, so obviously the players didn't do what he asked. But he takes some blame here when the opponent has a gaping numerical advantage for 90 minutes.

    Of course going with the 4-2-3-1 also meant that all four fit attackers had to play and we had no attacking subs left to chase the game, but you can't chase a game with no midfield possession anyway.

    To top it off a horror mistake from Buffon. Absolute shocker of a performance all elements considered, but it's football and it happens. I just don't think we have the personnel fit and ready or key players in form to make a serious dent now, the timing of it all is very poor. It'd take a classic performance to go through from this point and the conditions are not there for it. But we're Juve and we'll see.

    Getting really sick of Khedira, and I say that as a player who seems like a nice guy and has an awful lot of football intelligence. That's consecutive games I've seen him do a grand total of zero. He offers nothing when the play turns past him, his lack of athleticism is crippling. He hasn't even competed, we could stick a statue of Agnelli in midfield and it would win more balls. Alongside another non-athlete in Pjanic it's almost suicidal in a two-man midfield.

    $#@!ING THANK YOUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's about $#@!ing time more actually opened their $#@!ing eyes to this than pretending to themselves that he's some sort of God send and saviour. He's not! khedira's performance only confirmed my prediction of how bad he would be tonight.... but but but he scored 3 against sassuolo and had an off day against fiorentina where completed 16! YES 16 passes in 90 mins without any tackles or interceptions...

    2nd best midfielder my arse

    It's not Just a stadium - It's our Home. It's not just a kit - It's our Skin. We're not only Eleven - We're Millions. We're not just a crowd - We're a family. It's not just 90 minutes - It's a lifetime. It's not just a passion - It's an emotion. It's not just a game - It's our life. Juventus is not just a club - It's a lifestyle!

    I don't know what the expectations were about champions league this season were but how does anyone expect us to do well when we weaken our side every summer and this will continue this summer we need to spend heavily this summer to have any chance of lifting ucl

    khedira is normally pretty useful in serie a games as he holds the ball pretty well and he's an accurate passer. also, he's our best mid when it comes to arriving in front of the goal.

    the real issue with khedira is that he's like the invisible man when juve doesn't hold the ball. he won't track back, won't go into duels (which is a shame as he's a fairly big guy), won't tackle, and he's painfully slow.

    we should absolutely buy at least one classy midfielder in the summer. that's marotta's first and most important homework. we've been missing one proper goal scoring, defending mid since vidal was sold.

    Dybala needs to play at Wembley, no two ways around it

    You mention all those chances that we had and then say we didnt go for it. We were fine we just didnt execute when we needed too. We had all the right chances at the right times in the game and didnt execute. We had every chance to not only win but to make the london trip only a formality. We didnt execute properly from Sandro holding Kane on to the free kick mistake. Dont count us out yet

    lol we will play for a 0:0 and try long balls for the last 10 mins. This bitchass mentality will always kill us

    Oh, our lack of plan B...well, Dybala, Matuidi and Cuadrado all say hi.

    Those wonder games come against 10 man teams or lower table teams.
    If Dybala, matuidi and cuadrado were fit they would have been part of plan A, albeit cuadrado might have been on the bench instead of costa/bernie still wouldn't have changed much I don't think

    We can only hope we have them back and fit. Cuads would be nice too. We need to be able to attack from both sides which yes, that means one certain player needs to be benched.

    Also, can't stress enough the need for a healthy Matuidi and Marchsio. Our build up play will be lightyears better and you won't se a 89 vs 297 pass differential

    Spurs have been great in Europe and it shows that we should not judge a team on basis of its domestic performance
