Here's a thread about Juves remarqable past:
All the glories, all the legends,stadiums of the past,... talk about them in here



--------------------------------------------------------------------
The early successes

Sitting on a bench in Corso Re Umberto in 1897, a group of young students from the Liceo D'Azeglio of Turin decided to found a sports club whose main aim was to play football. Thus was born Juventus Football Club, according to legend, just a game, for fun, out of a desire to do something new. Football was a sport that was spreading rapidly throughout Europe at the time.

In that period, Juventus, whose first president was Enrico Canfari, played against more experienced sides, and yet already in 1905 it won the first Italian championship in its history after a thrilling three-way final with Genoa and Milanese. Juventus chose Piazza D'Armi as its home ground and played for a number of years in a pink shirt. The change to black and white came by chance in 1903 following a mistaken delivery from England, where the playing strip had been ordered.

Up until the outbreak of the Great War, Juventus had to be content with playing a secondary role to the football powers of the era, ProVercelli and Casale, but in the immediate post-war period it became a leading actor thanks above all to the goalkeeper Giacone and the full-backs Novo and Bruna, the first players to earn a place in the national team. The president was the poet and man of letters Corrado Corradini, the author of the club’s anthem, that lasted until the sixties.

In 1923, Giampiero Combi, one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time, made his debut in the first team. Edoardo Agnelli, the son of the founder of Fiat, was elected president of the club. This was the start of a special partnership that was destined to last over time. Given the growing number of fans, Juventus moved to the stadium of Corso Marsiglia. A team that already included players of the calibre of Combi, Rosetta, Munerati, Bigatto and Grabbi was strengthened by the arrival of the trainer Jeno Karoly and Hirzer, the inside left forward, both Hungarian. In 1925-26, after an enthralling battle with Bologna and the final against Albo Roma, Juventus won their second championship, the prelude to a cycle of victories that was to bring five successive trophies.

The Juventus trainer of the period was Carlo Carcano and the team included legendary players like Orsi, Caligaris, Monti, Cesarini, Varglien I and II, Bertolini, Ferrari and Borel II. Juventus won continuously from 1930 to 1935 and made a decisive contribution to the Italian team that won the World Cup in 1934. The victories in Italy brought Juventus its first international experience, taking part in the European Cup (now known as the Champions League), reaching the semi-finals on four occasions. In 1933 Juventus again changed its ground: this was the beginning of the era of the municipal stadium, built to host the World University Games and where the team was to play until the home leg of the 1989/90 UEFA Cup final.


The legendary cycle

In 1947, after World War 2, Giovanni Agnelli became chairman of Juventus. The greatest stars of the period were Carlo Parola, the Danes John Hansen and Praest and, above all, Giampiero Boniperti, who holds the club record for matches played (444) and goals scored (179). The victories in the 1950 and 1952 championships were greeted by vast crowds of fans. In 1953 Giovanni Agnelli left the chairmanship that passed on two years later to his younger brother Umberto. With the arrival of Omar Sivori and John Charles, Juventus won the ‘58, ‘60 and ‘61 championships and became the first Italian team to be awarded the star for having conquered ten national championships.

After the championship victory in 1967, with Vittore Catella as chairman, Juventus opened a long cycle of triumphs that began with the arrival in 1971 as chairman of its most famous champion, Giampiero Boniperti. The club won nine league titles in fifteen years ('72, '73, '75, '77, '78, '81, '82, '84, '86) and all the European and intercontinental cups. During this period, the team was trained by Vycpalek, Parola and Giovanni Trapattoni.

On the pitch, great Italian champions (Zoff, Scirea, Tardelli, Cabrini, Causio, Paolo Rossi, Gentile, Furino, Anastasi, and Roberto Bettega, our current Vice Chairman), played alongside foreign super-stars. Topping them all was Michel Platini. In his five seasons with Juventus won two championships, two European cups, and an Intercontinental Cup, was top goal scorer three times and was voted “footballer of the year” three times.

These great triumphs were followed by a less enthralling period, but that brought further victories: in 1990 the UEFA Cup - Italian Cup double and then the UEFA Cup again in 1993.

Recent triumphs

The recent history of Juventus is linked to the work begun in 1994 by the present management team of Roberto Bettega, Antonio Giraudo and Luciano Moggi under the chairmanship of Vittorio Caissotti di Chiusano (1990 – 2003). The first step was the choice of the trainer Marcello Lippi. After nine years, the Company once again won the championship, dominated the Italian Cup and only lost in the final of the UEFA Cup. The following year, the club won the only prize missing from its trophy cabinet: the Italian Super Cup. Energy was then concentrated on the Champions League, the former Champions’ Cup won only once in the past on the tragic night in Brussels against Liverpool. Juventus reached the Rome final and raised the much-sought trophy by beating Ajax on penalties.

The 96/97 season opened in the best way possible by winning the Intercontinental Cup in Tokyo, thanks to a goal by Del Piero, and the European Super Cup against Paris Saint Germain. The end of the season brought the team another championship win, the 24th, but also the disappointment of defeat in the final of the Champions League against Borussia Dortmund. Lippi tried again the following year: the club won the Italian Super Cup and the 25th championship, but fell to Real Madrid in the final of the Champions League.

In the 1998/99 season, just when Juventus was heading the league, Alessandro Del Piero was injured, the first of a series of unlucky episodes that accompanied the team throughout the season, culminating in the resignation of Lippi. In the two following seasons, led by Carlo Ancelotti, victory in the championship slipped away in the last game. In June 2001 Marcello Lippi returned to the Juventus bench and inaugurated a new series of victories. On 5 May 2002, after a thrilling fightback, Juventus overtook Inter on the last day and won its 26th championship. In the same season, on 20 December 2001, the Company was listed on the stock market, taking a major step in the development from a football club to an entertainment and leisure group.

In the 2002/2003 season, after winning its third Italian Super Cup, played in Tripoli, Juventus also carried off its 27th championship title and reached the final of the Champions League, eliminating adversaries of the calibre of Barcellona and above all Real Madrid. The return match at the Stadio Delle Alpi against the merengues will be remembered for a long time as one of Juventus’ best matches. In the all-Italian final against Milan, Lippi’s team lost on penalties and was not able to dedicate the cup to the memory of Giovanni Agnelli, who had died on 24 January of the same year.

The summer of 2003 started with a particularly significant event: on 15 July, the agreement was signed with the City of Turin for the 99-year lease of the Stadio Delle Alpi, where the Company intends to build its new home. On 24 July 2003 celebrations were held for the eighty-year bond between the Agnelli family and Juventus. In August, the team was in the United States to play the Italian Super Cup, but during the tournament the Company was hit by another loss: Chairman Vittorio Caissotti di Chiusano died only a few days before the club won the cup.

His successor as Chairman is Franzo Grande Stevens. The Italian Super Cup raised high at the Giants Stadium of New York was to be the only trophy in the 2003/2004 season, when the team was hit by numerous injuries at key moments, out of the fight for the championship, eliminated from the Champions League and beaten in the final of the Italian Cup. At the end of the season the Company suffered another sad loss: Umberto Agnelli left us on 27 May. The arrival of Fabio Capello on the Juventus bench was the final chapter of a story begun when, at the age of only 22, he became the youngest Chairman in the club’s history.

I do respect Juve, believe it or not. Amazing track record indeed, all the titles and glories.

however, truth is that whatever you say, whatever your arguments, somehow most serious fans will have Cacini's reaction to your club. Somehow, throughout the years with all the titles and wins, you have managed, undeservedly or not, to gather what I would claim to be, unequal and unknown in any other country, level of hate, disrespect and pure "mid finger" attitude. Call it lack of basic behavior, call it loser's attitude, call it soar grapes ... fact is, few fans of Italian clubs have any a big respect left for you.

Now call me a liar? ;)

Juventus are Italia's greatest club, that is for sure. They will always be one of the few clubs never to have tasted B and to have won so many Scudettos is a great feat, especially since it has been a gradual win, not like some team's periodic success in Europe to boost their total trophies.

I still wonder why that is. Them being virtually non-existant feels like it's in the right ballpark somehow.

I love those who have to cut down other people's achievements. Those are the few who have to suffer through the emptiness of their own lives.

Beautiful article.

I am sure you think it is, since it, for some reason, leaves out the most talked about parts of your (recent) history. Ignorance is a bliss I am told.

Some bad moments...

In memory of the Heysel


In memory of the Heysel

“We were brought here by our wish to remember and honour the Bianconeri friends who were victims of such tragedy and to express to their families solidarity and affection from all the Juventus world”
These were President Franzo Grande Stevens’s words to open the commemoration ceremony that took place this afternoon at Juventus headquarters, to honour the 39 victims who, on May, 29th 1985, tragically lost their lives at the block Z terrace of Heysel Stadium.

The ceremony was held in front of the monument commissioned by Juventus and inaugurated one year later and which has been at the Club headquarter since May, 29th 1986 to remember the 39 victims and their wish for real sport.

The ceremony was attended by: on behalf of Juventus, President Franzo Grande Stevens, Chief Executive Antonio Giraudo, Vice President Roberto Bettega, Director General Luciano Moggi and Commercial Director Romy Gai; on behalf of Liverpool, President David Moores and CEO Rick Parry. Besides the two clubs’ captains, there were Otello Lorentini – President of the permanent Committee against violence in sport “Roberto Lorentini and Giusy Conti” – Raffaele De Santis – President of the Committee of Victims in France and Belgium – Ian Rush, Phil Neal, Giampiero Boniperti and Architect Dante Grassi, who’s the author of the monument.
The President of UEFA Lennart Johansson and Chief Executive Lars-Christer Olsson could not attend the event but they sent a message which was read during the ceremony.

At the end of the ceremony, Del Piero and Hyypia brought a bunch of 39 white roses at the base of the monument.
