because both are used to playing besides a striker / target man, or you think that CR once transferred to Juve is automatically a CF ?

My goal is not to kill the vibe for my J-brothers because of cynism. I am 100% behind the club. FORZA JUVE

Always been reluctant to big changes in every aspect of life. But i remain open to be proven wrong.

Fair enough. Well, we could always use the 3 of Ronaldo-Higuain-Dybala.

It’s just too soon to tell. We have a lot of options in attack, perhaps too many

We should sell dybala and resign amauri so he can finally prove that, if actually on a decent team, he's the balon d'or candidate we thought he was all those years ago

Why not? They've been to a final without him lol.


They have - and they have declined since then, imo.

You could also argue that it wasn't their attack they needed to splash 100m on - but that's perhaps beside the point.

I just don't think Jjuve signing a 33-year-old Ronaldo necessarily makes them significantly better.

Declined since 2017? Good to know Proud

This was our starting 11 for the 2017 final:



Our starting 11 now, perhaps:

Ronaldo-Dybala-Douglas Costa
Matuidi-Emre Can-Pjanic
Alex Sandro-Chiellini-Benatia-Cancelo
Szczesny

Even with "33 year old Ronaldo"- lets not pretend that he's not a 40 goal per season scorer still but if the redundancy of listing his age as a detractor suits your needs, then by all means, this team is significantly younger than in 2017 and has more depth on the bench.

Our starting 11 right now is significantly better than 2017.

There hasn't been a significant difference between that team which lost to Madrid and now tbh.

Bonucci and Buffon maybe? The rest of the key players are still there and they've added some good players since.

There are major differences. Buffon, Bonucci, Dani Alves [who was trash that season anyways], are not with the team anymore.

Dybala had his most prolific season last season with Juventus.
Barzagli no longer starts.
Mandzukic is no longer a sure starter.
Higuain is now no longer a sure starter with Cristiano Ronaldo.
Khedira is no longer a sure starter.

Our bench on the day of the final:
Cuadrado as our [literally] only attacking option with Pjaca being out for the season that year.

Now our bench options will include:
Mandzukic, Cuadrado, Bernardeschi, potentially Douglas Costa/Dybala/Higuain if my proposed 11 is assumed.

Were younger and better with Ronaldo, were talking about a striker that has outscored our team in the CL over the last decade

Gab Marcotti, like Nick, took the L nicely and as usual, ESPN insists on looking down on Serie A teams. Not that they have proven them wrong consistently but still, they insist on that.

Didn't see many people bringing up Ronaldos age until he moved lmao



The thing people seem to forget about age, is that it's only a bad thing because with age comes the physical decline. Old age on it's own is completely and utterly irrelevant here.

Ronaldo is clearly significantly more athletic than most players in their 20's so i'm failing to see how it's relevant at all. Not to mention every signing doesn't have to be a football manager-esque 'let's buy a kid and play him for 15 years' deal. The short term is important too. Funnily enough planning for the future alone doesn't do jack shit for the present AKA the period fans actually spend money to witness.

I also fail to see how Ronaldo won't potentially elevate us to a CL. Ronaldo is the exact thing we've been missing on paper


In the CL, we've been notoriously low scorers. Our strikers aren't remotely prolific in the CL and we go and not only sign the best CL goalscorer ever, we also take him away from a club that, under his influence, knocked us out last year and also stopped us in a CL final.


Are people just wanting potential hipster cred if he somehow flops? The anti-Ronaldo arguments here are absolutely appalling. Nonsensical.

And last but not least, the notion we're going to 'gut the team' to accommodate him is ridiculous.

Yeah we'll get Ronaldo and pair him up with an increasingly worse team. I'm sure that's our master plan after years of our new management being cautious they've just had a collective brain haemorrhage and I'm sure Ronaldo jumped at the chance to play for a team that in 2020 would finish 4th in the league without him. We've been turning a profit lately. Yes, an actual profit. That's how tight we've been.


Now all of a sudden a 100M transfer (Which will almost certainly be fully covered by sales of players we do not need in the slightest) over 2 years may I add, and a wage bill that every credible source and their mothers are reporting will be spread around using other businesses under Agnelli control is going to leave us destitute? No. No it isn't.

This is a signing to harmonize relations between GL Jjuve and GL Madrid after a major rough patch. Ronaldo noticed this and then his agent told him Firenze would also join hands with S so Ronaldo went ahead with this.

Ronaldo's age and decline has been brought up ever since he crossed 30 (shit, since 28 really). The Jjuve council has a lot of catching up to do with respect to defending the man, good luck, God speed.

Maybe by the madrid fans that somehow boo'd him or Messi fanboys looking to prove some weird point. But I've certainly never seen so many fans that aren't tied to Ronaldo, Madrid, Juve or Messi talk about his age but now straight after moving he's a cripple that will be dead on his feet.

Well, we've talked about his age for years. Didn't even expect him to last this long, so I'll shut up once he stops adapting to his declining physique.

As well as Juventus' stock price going up 20% with the signing of Ronaldo, he has also notably boosted Juve's social media platforms: Instagram: + 1.4m, Twitter: + 1.1m and Facebook: + 500k. Meanwhile, Real Madrid lost 1,000,000 followers in 24 hours when it was announced Cristiano Ronaldo had left.

Strange nobody is bringing up he's playing in Serie A now which automatically means he's actually 25 IMO.

Well, you wouldn't care for such articles and talk because up until now, it had nothing to do with Juventus. But his age has always been a talking point like he is the only player to ever age for a good while. A lot of his detractors and regular commentators seem to be patiently waiting on his decline and cannot wait to say "see, I told you he was declining" and the man is just not letting up.

It's not just Madrid fans booing him (which he deserved at the time) or Messi fan boys. It's La Liga commentators, writers, shows, etc. His age has been a talking point for a while. Not the first it's being brought up, not to me anyway.

Well yeah like I said they're tied to the league, club, player whatever.

But it certainly wasn't a bunch of *Insert fans of west ham or some other completely unconnected club here* talking about it like it is now in public, over social media etc. Now everybody is crawling out of the woodwork to talk about the perils of buying a 33 year old player where these very same people before were wanking to his CL goals as neutrals every season.


Naturally people connected to Ronaldo and his club would talk about everything Ronaldo. It's the neutrals chiming in about age that baffles me. Not just on GL either, everywhere.

The age factor should always be taken into account when assessing a player. Under normal circumstances, I would laugh until I tear up at whoever buys a 33-year-old for 100m.

However, this is Ronaldo we're talking about. He's biologically 23 and the only thinkg he lost with age is his speed. Nothing else. Nothing.

His killer instinct and world class positioning is second to none. He's still the complete player who terrorized Europe while wearing the white of Madrid. His heading is top notch, his shooting is absolutely phenomenal. No player comes close to the power of his thundering shots. He's still amazing with both feet and can easily win you games on his own with his godly scoring abilities.

Ronaldo is an exceptional case and individual to which the age factor doesn't apply.

He's the best thing that has happened to Juventus for a very, very, very long time. If you know how to get the best out of him and give him freedom to do whatever he likes on the pitch, he'll bring you the gold.

Selling a 5-time Ballon d'Or winner, a 5-time CL winner and a marketing goldmine for 100m. What a *bleep* idiot Perez can be sometimes.

I suppose out of respect he didn't want to get in the way of Cristiano leaving by asking for an unreasonable amount that would cause Juve problems.
