    Capitano Giorgio Chiellini

    Nah, Bologna's goal was Evra's fault. Chiellini has the guy in the centre, Evra has the goalscorer. Evra makes no real effort to track the run and just hopes the guy will be offside, which is really poor.

    Would just need Juve to invite Tassotti along to elbow Luis Enrique again...

    Capitano Giorgio Chiellini

    It was a collectively failure of the back three, withChiellini most responsible and Bonucci least responsible. Caceres has to do more to get close to Gervinho and put him under enough pressure to make it harder to play the delicate pass. Chiellini is caught ball-watching and so fails to pick...

    Capitano Giorgio Chiellini

    Can anyone name a centre half who didn't have a player or a type of player they struggled against? Chiellini has Drogba, Vidic had Torres, Cannavaro was made to look stupid by Henry on occasion. And those are just some of the best who had a individual they found hard to play. Most defenders -...

    Capitano Giorgio Chiellini

    There's nothing odd about it. The opposition know Chiellini is the worst on the ball so they allow him the space and try to close down Juve's passing option so it will go to him. It's been a pretty obvious ploy from most teams ever since they realised just how good a passer Bonucci is and that...

    Of course. He's a South American in a position of power.

    So he's only lost a little value since Juve bought him? :notbad:

    Capitano Giorgio Chiellini

    But being the type that relentlessly goes forward to try and win the ball (Chiellini) is very different to someone who makes no effort to win the ball early and is almost entirely focused on playing like a sweeper (Thiago Silva). Sure, you can claim one is a better player than the other, but it...

    Capitano Giorgio Chiellini

    I don't know how you can compare the different kinds of centre-half. Chiellini is so different in style from someone like Thiago Silva that I wouldn't know how to go about comparing them. Since Vidic started to deteriorate, I don't see anyone better than Chiellini at being the big, aggressive...

    Could replace the "For Juventus Fans Worldwide" with "Much Ado About Nothing".

    Capitano Giorgio Chiellini

    I wouldn't expect him to play against Celtic. One thing to rush him back for a big game like the one against Napoli, but no need to risk him and make him play through pain against Celtic.

    You wouldn't want to have Chiellini in your team in a game that may turn violent?

    No reason to bother playing him against Celtic unless they want a gentle game for him to work on his fitness.

    Would be tough at Parkhead. Could still see Juve winning by a couple of goals in Turin playing like that. Celtic fans will currently be speaking about how they'll get thrashed if the play like they did against St. Mirren, who beat them 3-2 in the League Cup semi at the weekend.

    Capitano Giorgio Chiellini

    Would have been useful to have Chiellini available to play at Parkhead. Unlikely Juve will have to defend much in Turin, so Chiellini missing the second game wouldn't be the end of the world as far as I'm concerned.

    Wouldn't expect Napoli to let Campagnaro go, given that Cannavaro is suspended and they are releasing Aronica. Bocchetti is the obvious choice.

    Not really. My recollection is that the Nordsjaelland one was more of a block/obstruction, while this was a little pull.
