The lack of an announcement from the Juve camp points to Deschamps being the next Bianconeri coach. DD requested that nothing be said prior to the CL final, and speculation is that Juve will announce on Friday.
Prandelli will not be coaching in Serie B next year, so if Fiorentina want him they have a lot of work to do. Even if they manage to hold onto 6th place, they will then have to face an improved Perugia. I doubt the League is going to award Fiorentina another undeserved promotion, so they better win on the field or just keep Mondonico in the job.
No, I was a Juve fan before I became a Viola fan as well. So, I didn't "jump ship" once Baggio was sold.
I found the whole thing with women in Florence threatening to jump off their balconies when Roby was sold as rather amusing, but that only re-enforced my feelings for La Viola, to have the locals that supportive of their team.
