1) Serie A
2) UEFA Champion's League
3) UEFA Cup -if we get knocked out in first rd of CL-
4) Italian Cup

With our current team, do you think we can win the CL? Though our team isn't the strongest in Europe, maybe we can rely on luck to help us win.

Your views?

If Lippi decides to deploy a 4-3-3 formation (Now that we have 6 forwards in our squad), I think we can win all 3 trophies. In the CL it's usually not mainly about squad strength, the squad's depth IMO plays a more important role, and we certainly don't lack that this year. We must aim for the treble this year. I believe we can do it (given that Davids doesn't get a red card in our most crucial CL game as he did in the last 2 seasons).

Mind you, I'm not saying I think we will win a treble or anything. I am just saying this this team is good enough that if we get some breaks and everything falls into place, we can win 1 or more trophies. Of course you can say that about a lot of teams.

Midfield is wat too weak for Cl triumph imo
Maybe it's not as strong as some of the other major teams in Europe, but Juve have a well balanced midfield with sufficient backup. And if Juve decide to switch to a 4-3-3 system (Now that we have 6 forwards in our squad), a Davids---Nedved---Zambrotta midfield would certainly be a world class one.

i think if we wanted to win the CL, we shoulda got a midfield and a striker. We got Di Viao. but we still got holes in the mid. There's where Rivaldo would be most handy at...

it seems to me that we will have a better chance in the CL than last year because of squad depth.
but i also think that winning the scudetto is harder ( not harder than CL of course) now that Milan and Inter are much stronger (though, Lazio is not a serious contender anymore).
ignoring the long term roaster problems( old team, need youngsters), i think this season we are complete except for one position: The Playmaker position. What would we do if Nedved gets injured or suspended!! we all know DP does not like that position. Maybe Olivera can fit in quick enough so that he can be a secure backup to Nedved.
This is why i wished rivaldo had joined juve!

Retaining the scudetto imo is not less important then winning CL, b'coz the challenge is far more geater with milan and inter as a far serious contender than last season. So if we could win it, it would be more prestigious i think.
But yes, it is the CL title that juve player,staff and fans hunger of. It has been 6 long years of waiting, so if i may conclude juve should aim for CL final while still be scudetto contender by retaining good position at serie A (pretty much like what RM did last season), but let's just hope we would not slipped like RM did!!

Wait, are you saying that winning Serie A would be viewed by the european football community as a bigger accomplishment thatn winning the CL? If you are, then I have disagree. The CL gives more money, more prestige, and hell we won the Scudetto last year, let's do something different.

we can win the coppa Italia, and the UEfa cup if we are knocked out of the CL early enough.

CL and scudetto are unlikely to be won by us

Winning ECL would underline the strength of Italian football once again and that of Juve. I'm sick and tired of being undermined by teams like Man U, Arsenal and a few others.

I'd understand if the ones talking too much were Real (they are anyways) and Bayern, Milan, Ajax and Liverpool hav not done well recently and are in no better position than us. The rest should shut up!!!

Scudetto will always be important, domestic rivalries are very important and AC and Inter hav just stepped up a challenge to us so we better make sure that we prevent them from winning.

Since it's been long since we made a mark in ECL, I'd be more than happy to get to the finals or at least semis and win scudetto.

I wish Italian clubs luck in ECL this season and I hope they do well.
Imagine a 1/4 final with these teams:

Juve
Milan
Inter
Real
Barca
Bayern
Dortmund
Ajax/Liverpool/PSV

To me it would not matter who we play but seeing us against any of those teams would measure our strength in Europe
