I didn't chose to be a Juventino, I was born Juventino. I have a picture of myself of when I was 7 years old, in Libya with a black & white jersey on.

:touched:



Legend! Guy was a good coach. Went against the federation and was black listed. Meanwhile you have Zemans getting jobs left and right.
Legend is not a good enough word for this man. I just watched that video. Brought me back to the Summer of 82, watching the World Cup on TV with my dad when I was 12 years old.

Those tears :touched:, I can tell how passionate he was. I wish I had followed the World Cup 1982. I have to find it somewhere online and watch it.

what happened between him and FIGC? I was curious why he never coached again since he was the coach when Italy last won u-21 Euro.

He was a my way or the highway guy. When the FIGC fired him he took them to court and now is basically black listed.

2006 wasn't it?? FIGC distanced themselves from everyone and everything Juve.
He dragged his compensation case through the civil courts, which the FIGC didn't like on top of the actual claim, as it fell outside of the sporting court (which they would probably manipulate anyway). I think he took them for a couple million euros in the end.

An absolute god. Spoke with his heart, the same way he wore the top as my father tells me.

You were very excited :lol:

The whole arab spring belongs on a monty python sketch.
In hindsight it does sound naive now. However you were not in our place, because Mubarak can never be compared to Geddaffi or Bashar, never in our lives did we think that Geddaffi can be toppled, so it was natural that most Libyans would be excited at the time at the idea of toppling a tyrannical regime and instituting a democracy. Of course now that we replaced him with chaos and a failed state, it does look naive in hindsight, but thats why they say hindsight is 20 20.

We didn't think we could ever topple Mubarak either. We have a full generation of depressed people back home.

But the grip Mubarak had on Egypt and the type of country Egypt is, you can never compare it to Libya or Syria. No way would Gedaffi or Bashar be toppled without a war, demonstrations in the street and getting a few people shot in demonstrations, that's child play for Gedaffi. Try machine guns, anti aircraft weapons used against unarmed civilians and the occasional grad missile.
