In less then a half hour we'll know the Serie A draw for this season. Probably a suitable moment for opening this topic.

Watching the draw as it unfolds. Matchdays 7 and 8 should be interesting: Milan-Roma and then the derby.

Well, it's not the easiest of starts but it certainly could have been much worse

Would have liked the first game at the San Siro, but whatever.

No we can't. We have to alternate with Inter on the first game being played at home every season. So last season we were at home, therefore this season we play away.

So, Lazio beat the Gobbi in the Supercoppa. The winning goal was possible courtesy of some really bad defending by one Mattia De Sciglio (who let Lukaku past him. Lukaku then centered the ball for the Lazio youth product Murgia to score).

My takeaways: Lazio look better than I thought they would. They're organized and have a solid-looking team. The gobbi are a mess defensively, still. Allegri's reorganization didn't work at all and I found it rather telling that at the end of the game he spent time on the pitch yelling at Chiellini. It seems all is still not well in the white and black half of Torino.

Juve were terrible is all areas of the pitch.

What was most telling is their build up game without Bonucci is gone completely, so Allegri will have to have a major rethink in terms of tactics without him

Btw, isn't it ironic how the Inzaghi brothers turned out? One was an exceptional player but so far hasn't shown that he can really make it as a coach. while the other was a pretty average player in his day yet has instantly shown that he will become an exceptional coach in the coming years.

Lazio have been doing so well this past season because of Inzaghi imo, his tactical know how is really impressive. I really like how Lazio play, their game against Juve yesterday was perfect. I think he'll be the next great Italian coach

As for Juve in general, I think they'll struggle a bit at the start, they're showing cracks no doubt but they'll still steam roll the majority of the league.

If they get off to a really bad start like the season they had prior to the last, I can see Napoli taking advantage of it

What's funny is that the typical Allegri treats all start showing now that the boat is shaken. For example clinging on Mandzukić who's become the new and improved Emanuelson, spinning around with Dybala as AM then SS, waiting for his team to show up, making atypical changes, playing MDS on the right, preferring Barzagli at 37 on the right to a fit Lichtsteiner, gosh I could go on and on...

I must be the only one on here not caring what Juve do. They're vulnerable. It's up to us to exploit it, not obsess over it.

It's just interesting to see what they'll do this season. I think Napoli will be the ones to benefit from any Juve vulnerabilities, not us. We're not there yet imo

I don't think Napoli is there tbh. Don't get me wrong, they have a solid team, but - for some reason they are vastly overrated IMO.

It's not an obsession Danny, but probably the need to scrutinize their dealings, tactics and mental state because Juventus is the team to beat for the scudetto and they have been for a long while now.

We can't change any of the above so no point obsessing about it. We've done some damage with Bonucci - let's concentrate on our own club and let whatever happens in Turin, happen.
