My father was an Inter fan at the time. Six year old me wanted to challenge his authority maybe? Instant love with the Bianconeri since then. :heart:

Watching Del Piero on Channel 4. The beautiful jersey and the coolness of our players. We looked stronger and more classy than other teams. Even the name Juventus seemed so cool to me. These are my earliest memorys.

Edgar Davids for me. I still wonder what he did prior to him leaving. Also Del Piero, my first footie shirt was his WC2002 shirt.

Total coincidence: Zidane was the name I heard the most back in 2000. So my mom took me to buy a France jersey with Zidane.
But the guy said that they're out of Zidane jerseys and offered Azzurri Del Piero #10 shirt instead, I thought it looked gorgeous and that Del Piero was the coolest name I've ever heard. Later I found out that full name is Alessandro Del Piero and it sounded even better.
Then Euro 2000 started, I was determined to watch this guy in action... so it's Italy vs Turkey, got disappointed that this Del Piero guy didn't start, so I wait maybe he comes on later... and comes on he does. First touch? A freekick from 40 meters, he hits the cross bar... I'm like this guy is a magician. Now this was my first ever real football following experience, and the team I support out of pure coincidence makes it to the final... and we all remember how it went, and that pain made me love DP even more because of his failure that night too, we bonded basically...
then came Juventus obviously because I knew I would follow this awesome player where ever he played. And Juventus is a thing of beauty itself too. You have to remember there isn't much internet back then where you just look up everything and get instant gratification, it was all gradual and this club passed all my tests: the name, the freakin gorgeous colors, the players, the history... everything.

PS Funny thing is if the store wasn't out of Zidane jerseys I would probably still be Juventino for obvious reasons :D

I became a fan because of Baggio, but the period just after Baggio with our three successive CL finals and Del Piero playing incredibly well really solidified it.
