I don't get why it is do or die? Do you think if you win you stand a chance of winning the league? Or are there only 3 Champions League places for Serie A this year? :confused:

We are fighting for the last (4th) CL spot. Samp are direct rival for 4th spot if you check standings. Meanwhile Palermo is in action against Inter.

Juve will also play Napoli is few rounds time.

We cant loose these games or its no CL football next season.

And please, dont say Palermo are nothing special or sooner or later they will drop. Frankly we are in the same level as those teams close to us fighting for last CL spot.

FYI Juve blew a 3 goal lead today against friggin Siena.

Nothing is certain with this Juve. Especially finishing 4th at this stage.

4th spot is far from certain, as the meltdown vs Siena shows. Even Zach's rhetoric recently indicates he doesn't have faith in us taking it, and i can see why with the clownish, error-filled defensive display we put in.

this may be our last chance to do it too, Palermo's fixtures apart from having to play Genoa, Samp, and Milan is pretty smooth from next week onwards. We'll still have to play Inter, Napoli and Milan on the last day. Things are really getting tight, and if we don't play our best the CL spot is lost for sure.

If we had won vs Siena we'd be a point above Palermo, and that could end up being the difference when everything's done and dusted. Whatever the case is, we need to win against Samp. Anything less and the 4th spot will be lost and we'll have no one to blame but ourselves.

Looks like we have to hope Inter wraps the title up fast then, imagine Milan-Juve, one going for title, other going for CL spot, both need to win. :scared:

There might not be a 4th spot for Italy yet.

from wiki:
"The UEFA ranking determines the number of teams competing in the season after the next, not in the first season after the publication of the ranking. Thus, the 2010 ranking determines the proportion in 2011–12, not 2010–11."

next year there are 4 spots for Italy, for sure. Even if you do not know the rules you can see that by the rhetoric of our management that we need that 4th place. (not that they are not a bunch of dumb ****s...)

edit: also, by the look of it, the leagues get equal points for their team's participation/performance in CL and EL which I find a bit odd at first glance, since one assumes that CL>EL but the relative power relations of the teams within the both competitions are considered equal. This should be a reference point for the league as a whole and maybe the new format of the TV money deal would help clubs like Fio, Samp, Genoa, Napoli, Palermo get stronger and do better in EL and at the end bring points when the other "big" teams **** up in CL. You have to consider the mentality of these teams in Europe, too, anyway... maybe Toni could tell us what the majority of the italians think is more important Europe or Italy... sorry 'bout the OT.

dude you need to come to the realization fast next year we're still good for 4 spots.

in 2 years i don't think england will have 4 teams in the premiership NOT in administration but that's a subject for another day.

Doesnt matter if they repeat the performance of the first Samp game times 3, nothing can help me feel any less disgusted by this team.

Just scrunge together the needed pts to get the 4th spot, and then put 2/3rds involved in this club from board, players to staff to the gardener for the awful Vinovo fields infront of a firing squad.

Samp-Juve DRAW :hopeful:
Napoli-Juve LOSE
Juve-Atalanta WIN :hopeful:
Udinese-Juve WIN :hopeful:
Juve-Cagliari LOSE
Inter-Juve LOSE
Juve-Bari DRAW :hopeful:
Catania-Juve WIN :hopeful:
Juve-Parma DRAW :hopeful:
Milan-Juve If the title isnt decided on the last day, and win will guarantee us CL spot, Milan will hand us the 3 points.

So that means 4 wins, 3 draws= 15points.

Palermo drew with Inter:

Inter 60
Milan 58
Roma 56
Palermo 47
Juventus 45
Sampdoria44

We MUST win this game, we must, or we are not going to get that 4th spot. Compared to Palermo, i am not sure we will get anything from Inter, who we will play in round 34.
