Is that really necessary josh?
well didnt mean to come off as rude, sorry. just thought that it was the more appropriate place to post the question. on second thought, we need a football/juventus faq.

FYI, for the same reasons it's worth noting that Udinese and Siena are also referred to as "Bianconeri".

thats just the coLours they pLay. juve are the officiaL bLack and white team
i dont think Juve's the "official" Bianconeri, it's just that you hear it more often with juve because juve's more famous.

It's important to note that Udinese was even founded a year before Juve, yet it's funny how juve's the "Old Lady" :D.

also, AFAIC, Udinese have always been black and white, as opposed to juve who had the pink kits.

Juve's the Old Lady because she's the most succesful (domestically :groan: ) out of the seven sisters of Calcio, and Udinese's not one of them.

You're right about the original colours though

I fail to see how "old" relates to "successs."

please quote your source.

There was a thread about this before; the reasons why we're called The Old Lady. Maybe I should have said that we're the oldest of the seven sisters. My bad
