Riddle me this: about Juve's arch rivals... (2 Viewers)

Hi there. Some of you might have already met me on the Transfer Talk forum where I posted the piece of news regarding right central back Gonzalo Rodríguez's almost confirmed transfer.

If he happens to come here, most definitely I will start rooting for la Vecchia Signora. Right now I'm supporting Chievo Verona because of Argentine Mario Santana, as well as Salernitana in Serie B because of my fellow countryman, Ricardo Matías Verón, who used to play in Reggina (to whom I still have some feelings, too).

Anyway, I was just wondering... What is Juventus' arch rival these days? I'm guessing it's Milan, specially after seeing all those flyers and posters thanking Boca for having defeated them in the European-South American Cup (FYI, that is the actual name of the Cup and NOT Intercontinental Cup).

But I was wondering... What about Torino? I know, I know. That team is not as big as it used to be these days, but in the early 60's it was probably the biggest Italian club.

I'm guessing it's Italian supporters of Juve who must hate Torino and care more about their rivalry with them rather than international fans who don't "have" to live in Turin.

Probably it's a similar situation to what happens with Manchester United and Manchester City, the latter being the most popular team in Manchester but not nearly as successful as the former.

Another similar case would be Real Madrid sharing the city with Atlético Madrid but still having Barcelona as their arch rival.

So you tell me. What team do you hate most? So that I will hate them too if I end up becoming a Juve fan as well. :nasty:

(Sorry, maybe this thread should be moved to the Rookie/history forum)

Hola, ¡¿cómo estás?! :)

¿Vos sos venezolana o argentina viviendo en Venezuela?

Si sos lo primero, ¡mandale mis saludos a Gilberto Angelucci! ;) Todavía guardamos muy buenos recuerdos de él en San Lorenzo.

¿Si? ¿Hay muchos argentinos "posteando" aquí? Todavía no me "encontré" con ninguno...

Gilberto Angelucci renuncio a la seleccion nacional!! :'(

Eres el segundo argentino que entra en menos de una semana, el primero esta siempre en el thread the la Copa Intercontinental, no me acuerdo bien de su username

Tu eres fan de Boca? A mi personalmente me gusta mas el River, pero en Boca-Milan le iba al Boca!! queria que el Milan perdiera, y ademas que se dejara el futbol suramericano bien en alto!!

Well, as u said, the normal arch rivals of Juve is Torino... but taking in consideration the recent confrontations.. of course Milan are the "hot" rivals right now :)
IN Europe... welll the usual guys: Manchester UTD, Deportivo, Real madrid, etc etc.

Barcelona´s hometown rivals are Espanyol if im not wrong

Traditionally, torino and Fiorentina are out biggest rivals.

But since those 2 clubs have been dogged with relegation and stuff, its Inter and Roma who Juve fans hate the most and then Milan obviously.

Roma. Maybe not because of the fans as much because of the Chairmans. Moggi and Sensi cant stand eachother. Moggi said that the only way a juve player will ever go to Roma is over his dead body.

Someday, Fiorentina will be back, and the fireworks will really start to fly once that happens.

Thankfully, the new ownership has money.

why would you wanna wish that ??
I hear our rivalry with Fiorentina is quite fierce

It's incredibly fierce. Especially after juve bought Baggio from Fiorentina in the early 90's. There were riots for 3 days, and some women even tried to jump off out of their apartment windows, it was so bad.
