It is true, the ref was questionable for both teams but this does not make it fine, it was Juve who got 2 goals from wrong decisions and Juve who picked up 3 points because of it. This is what I dont like... and Im sure you'd feel the same if it happened to Juve and the opponents got 2 wrong goals.
Of course you don't like it and neither would I! The resentment is logical. I just think it's unreasonable to look back and say that nothing else should be counted. I find it quite obvious that it would have had an effect if you hadd played with a man less for 45 minutes for instance, and Cufre, for what he did against Zebina and his punch against DP... he obviously meritted a red card for both, and that's just the tip of the iceberg in a first half where Roma in particular where simply so fired up that they went over the edge. I think you pointed to the same in a post in your forum last night, and I don't think it's coincidental, that Totti had three Kung Fu challenges; two on Emerson and one on Zebina. That was about settling scores, and it went largely unpunished like usual with him (hey- fantastic footballer, but his reputation for being unprofessional is not undeserved).
This of course takes nothing away from the two goals we scored being wrong, but I don't see the errors going against us reflected in the ref. criticism from many posters.
As for proving something. You have alot to prove because there is a good chance that you may come away with nothing.
That is very much true, but if you look at our squad and the fact that we're missing nedved, and that Trez has participated in only 12 games this season... I think it's unreasonable to expect more. We are simply not that good. If we win something, it will be like the bumble bee thing. Noone knows why it flies, but it does
OK you are tied for top, but despite yesterday's win, Juve have been struggling recently and if Capello craps it against Real and brings in for Pessotto for DP then Real can make Juve pay more than the current Roma can even if we have a great front 3.
Real CAN make us pay. Sure! But at the same time you can look at Real Madrid and it's obvious that they ahve weaknesses also, and we could hand them a beating as well. After all- Real Madrid is not a team to take lightly, and if we lose then at least we lost against a high profile outfit.
Juve work hard and are industrial but maybe teams need a little more than this to win Serie A and IMO Milan are the team which have it. As I said its only an opinion of mine personally and I could clearly be wrong but at this point Milan to me are huge favourties for the scudetto and not only because they are just as lucky as Juve.
Milan has a better team than we do. That's a given in my book and I've said it all through the season. At the same time, they've gotten 6 points through winners deep into injurytime over the last 5 matches and surely didn't deserve their win against Inter in the derby. Milan is not in any kind of superb form either, and their schedule in my opinion is considerably more difficult than ours.
If we win- it will not be the most spectacular scudetto winning team ever, but it will be another step towards that third star just the same, and in the end that would be all history wrote. Winners don't need to prove anything. Whether we win is something else.
