Both Man U and Juve were knocked out in the first round of the CL, there both still in their own cups, Juve in finals against Lazio, and Man U in the FA cup semis, about to get knocked out, but thats besides the point. They also both today blew "need-to-win" games, for Juve especially, and are now 9-12 pts back on the leaders. Both teams also won last years league title. They also both need some staff and player transfers, and a prayer.

anyways ADP you make good points. both juve and man u have hit slumps simultaneously. our weakness have given milan a chance for success while arsenal have capitalised on man u's poor performance.

the thing is, however, that fergie's job isnt in any danger while lippi's is in question- he himself said something about quitting, and rumours circulate about a sack(i think its unlikely)

man u have a couple talented young players with potential, while we have none. none of our youngsters have either shown enough, or been given a chance to play a vital role in the team- maresca, miccoli, or legrottaglie, and age seems to have hit us hard.


for juve, everything will depend on one thing right now- and that is our transfer moves.

I agree. Both teams have been clearly set off by the injuries- they've played a vital role.

Both teams are dressed by Nike.

MU and Juve toped the list of teams which made highest profit last year.

Two major differences:
1. MU will seat back, relax and prepare for next year (maybe buy one or two players). We will have to reorganize everything.

2. Juventus is my favorite team, MU is my second hated team.

Well, the season is pretty much over now. Not much to look forward to from a Juve standpoint. Except of course the transfer window.

Hope the moves are all right so we can get back to what we do best: winning trophies.

Man Utd. on the other hand are looking less and less likely to pick up anything this year. I dont think their transfer requirements are as drastic as Juve's, but they could still do with some smart moves if they want to be contenders for anything next season.

As for both coaches, neither deserve to be sacked. And i dont think that would happen either. Ferguson and Lippi have been around long enough, and won more than enough to command the kind of respect both on the field and in the back office.

Overall, as a juve fan i am dissapointed with the final outcome. But the fantastic winning cycle had to come to an end at some point. And i cant have any complaints after almost 3 years of non stop quality football.
