Hey how bout we have people who've seen him play on a regular basis or who have an opinion on his performances or abilities tell us about what they think/have seen about this player. Some on-topic insight would be appreciated.

Well i just saw him in the 2 matches of Chievo-Juve and Juve-Chievo 2002-2003, and when he played in the nazionale italiana, and i really like him, he was the leader of the defense of Chievo..
this season he played 30 match, make 4 goals, and have 10 yellow card..i think 1 red not sure at all...

But i think he is very stronge ...i feel he will be great in Juve...

its interesting that we might have him and tudor in defence. two strong defneders which is good in my opinion.

i think juve lacked strength in that defence last season.

Above all it lacked young leggs :D That should be covered now, but I'm wondering if he will be a starter and if Tudor will be in the last line or in a line above defence :moan: :undecide:

I don't think we will see Tudor in defence (sadly) .. coz Lippi just doesn't seem to like playing him there .. he usually plays him in def. midfield instead ..

Anyway, I think with Legro onboard, Ferrara would be given more deserved rest .. I remember him working his ass off in Manchester last seaon, playing despite his fever with a temperature of 42 degrees .. he's a true warrior :touched:

As I said .. we would have 4 CBs and they could be juggled around (Legro, Montero, Ciro, Iuliano/Grygerra) ..

Not as far as I know, but I think Fahad is saying that next season we'll either have him or Iuliano.

Legrottaglie's been good this season. He's basically just like Tudor (physique and all - he even scores alot), but less injury prone which is obviously a good thing.

if i see either montero or ferrara start again this seaosn, i'll shocked. Montero has lossed his legs and looks vulnerable as does ferrara, although Ciro was great all season.

we shouldnt have to rely on a 37 and 32 year old for our centre backs.

Tudor and Legrottaglie are both capable of taking their places. if they are considered as a good partnership for central defence, bring in Mexes!!

And as for Iuliano, i think he should be offloaded as well.

its time we strengthen the defence with some youth.

Grygera is a right or left back, he plays both.

I think Montero had a relatively average season because he was dealing with an injury - just like Trezeguet. Hopefully he will improve next season.

I don't like to judge players based on their ages. Months ago Ciro was accepted by fans and he proved that he's still in good shape to handle opponents .. he only grew 2 months since then which I suppose means he still can do the job ;) But I admit he should probably play less games so that he focuses more on the games he play.


Just a small reminder: Juve ended the season with the best defensive record in Serie A with Montero and Ferrara as CBs.

you should requote that like this:
"With Buffon as the keeper and despite having Ferrara and Montero as CBs" ;)

:D

BTW, what's up Fahad :) ...i havn't caught you here in a while :)

C'mon .. you should give credit to the guys .. Inter have Toldo-Cannavaro-Cordoba, Milan have Dida-Nesta-Maldini and have let in more goals than we did ;)

Well it's summer here and you know how things go with mini-vacations here and there to the beach and other places :)
