This is something me and my friends discussed for a long time last.

Lets just imagine that your favorite player for some reason decided to move to, lets just say Milan. (Iknow it sounds like the end of the world)
Would you then convert to the red/black (milan) side? Or would you simple dump your, by then former favorite player and seek comfort in the Juventus the club? Or would you simple find it in your heart to forgive him, and become sort of a duall supporter.

For example: (assuming you're as big a Del P, and Conte fan as me)
Would you forgive them if they moved to Milan?

I am a Juve fan although i like DP a lot.
If DP moved away i'd stick with Juve for sure.

If he left i'd forgive him, but not for an Italian rival

No matter who leaves Juve I will always support JUVE!
R. Baggio left and he was my fav. Juve player at that time,
but I still support JUVE!!!

Del Piero leaving for MILAN!!! Will not happen! But if it would ---> JUDAS! :fero:

happened to me. inzaghi was the love of my life, poof, decided to go to milan.

you have NO idea how much THAT hurt, and with milan winning the fvcked CL.....

but u still see me at the juve forums, so, im still a juve fan. cant blame pippo for leaving, it was for his career tho i expected better of him. i still dont like milan, however i wish pippo all the best for his career as long as it doesn't involves juve's destruction.

Yeah definetly.

I have been a Juventus fan for over ten years and it would take something special to convert me.
Selling Zambrotta, Buying Totti, changing to red and black stripes and play in München would be something special.

Yaeh... you may be right... I didn't check before I posted the thread. But I don't think it adresses the the exact same thing. If you're thinking of the: "feelings towards ex Juve players.

ehm i think it don't matter where the player plays i always liked ravanelli i was great fan of him but when he left i still liked him a lot and support him
so it doesn't matter but when he plays against juve then i wish him good luck but at the end juve must win :D

No player is bigger than the club. I used to like Inzaghi a lot (yeah yeah, i know), and when he left for Milan, I was a bit upset, but of course the club is what I support, so I pretty much stopped being interested in Inzaghi's career, because I knew he'd be succesful wherever he goes.

For players like Kovacevic, I didn't care much when he left, but since he was a Juve player, I wish the best for him at Sociedad.

All the players we love like Buffon, Nedved etc, we love because they do great things for the club.

I've said this many times before: No player is above the club and I dont love any player more than the club.

Players come and go but Juventus is always Juventus :stuckup:

OK just to make this straight if you are a fan of a team and something can convert you to be a fan of other team instead it says you are not a real fan!!!

I only started supporting Juventus because of Del Piero, but that was since 1994 and now I love the club so much and I'm mature enough to know that no player is more important than his club, although I know that if DP had left Juve in say 1997 when I was about eight, I would not be a Juve supporter today. Thanks for staying here Alex :touched:

Incorrect. If you're a fan of a team and your good players leave, then you start supporting another club, then you're most definitely a Real fan :D:p

I think this is the way it is with most people. There's something small about the club, like a player, their jersey, a particular match you watched... which makes them catch your eye. Then as you keep following them and liking them more and more, you realise that the club's what you follow, not the players, not the jersey, not their history etc.

Did you have to bring up Fiorentina??:frown::sob:


I became a Juve fan because of my Mom.


Typical little Italian boy. Attached to his mom like he was a 3rd leg.

I've seen Bettega, Rossi, Zoff, Zizou, Pippo, Vieri, Platini, Ravanelli, Vialli............come and go, but I'm not going anywhere. Even after Nedved and DP eventually leave or retire, I'll be upset, but the team lives on.
