Should have seen it coming.


I don't know much Portuguese, so this is an altavista translation. The rough points are that:
5 year deal
7m Euros

We were never seriously linked with him and it's no surprise that he should join a Portuguese club.

But would Diego have been given any different treatment at Juventus?

It seems so disgustingly hard for promising young players to get a crack at our club. This while our club's name is Juventus for crying out loud. We should change our club name to FC Geriatricus.

Meanwhile, the beat goes on throughout Europe, and the rest of the world, that the younger generation of football players are in ascendency. The reigning veterans are being rapidly marginalized as younger, hungrier players are winning more and more of the silverware. And yet our front office seems to be blissfully unaware of the fundamental shifts going on right now.

Case and point: look at what Kaka did, and was even allowed to do, at Milan last season. Or Cassano at Roma. I have a hard time seeing those opportunities at Juventus. Hopefully Capello will bring some of that. But our transfer market savvy so far hasn't reflected any changes there.

well yeah, he would different treatment imo. nevermind the fact that wouldnt and wasnt signed, but he has much more talent than maresca ever had and at 19 was a world class superstar. maybe he wouldnt replace nedved but but he's play important role.
