I feel the same way.Last year, Ranieri owned every big team with his tactic. He even was playing Salihamidicz in one of those games. Every team goes through rough patches, and now with Trezeguet injured, Camoranesi injured and in terrible form, Sissoko not eating and a shadow of himself, Del Piero in bad form, Chiellini 2 point mistake, Buffon injured, can we not slow down a little on the judgements? I think I named the best players of Juventus there, and all of them have some sort of problem at the same time.
I'm not saying Ranieri is amazing, and he's definately too cautious sometimes but let's not forget he was able to get results last year, and he isn't now because his individuals are not in good form.
At the same time bono has a point as far as the purchases goes, that we have only made one considerately big one.
So in a way this all favors Ranieri.
Nero has a point as well when he says we are doing worse than last year. Whether it is because now there are more games, which means also more injuries it is possible, but the point is, Ranieri has said that we are challenging for both. If he makes such satements then he should be held to his own words.
I think Juve have indeed a good team, and although these last games have been reltively bad, i hope its only a matter of time. We have hit bad patches with Lippi, Ancelotti, Capello etc and its all part of the game. I am not too worried.
Plus another thing is, where do you make the difference between the merit of the coach and that of the players? It has to be one body.
Now if you have Iaquinta making a declaration saying, let Giovinco play, as he is a joy to watch, one can be sure that its not after watching two games.
At the same time, you see that Del Piero is in bad form. Bench him. Watch what happens after he has sat out after a couple of games, watch him go in form immediately.
The team needs more nerve, they need to wake up from this and they need to play with more anger than ever. Juve traditionally the best team in italy, the players can't forget this.
Right now ithink its fitness playing the role more than any other thing.
This plays a major role in fatigue, as well as injuries.
Which reminds me....
Where is C. Zanetti
