Lmao to all the people saying Ronaldo was holding juventus back, now people see how bad they are without him, their consecutive serie a streak was bound to end with all their star players aging or leaving but since the streak ended under Ronaldo’s watch he’s blamed for it
i n t e l l e c t w e b well done for everything you have done
Kean – Dybala
Rabiot – ihattaren – Chiesa
Locatelli – McKennie
Bonucci – Chiellinie – DeLigt
absolutely Juventus's defeat not penaldo's departure…
Everyone sleeping on Roma
At least there’s no Ronaldo to blame for their garbage performances….bar Chiesa
This year Juventus will not qualify for champion league
Ronaldo was hiding so many weaknesses for Juve. Juve don't have any consistent scorers. No ball movement and chance creation around the 3rd end. Lack of attacking mentality. Dropping back too deep even while going down etc etc.
Ronaldo was the problem right? We’ll see this season?
No Ronaldo, No Party
Allegri has brought discontent on that club.
Espn clowns ?
Waiting to here what they say about roma and mourinho.
They should’ve signed pogba
As a supporter of football it’s sad to see Juve struggling wished Ronaldo stayed for longer but risked hurting his legacy in the process
Screw Juventus, hope they finish 5th or 6th and fail to win anything , go As Roma, Ac Milan and Napoli! CR7 will do great at United!
I dont get Juventus keeping the goalkeeper scwercny as hes error ridden and hes not commanding in his penalty box. Hes a very poor goalkeeper imo
Chiesa will be wasted under Allegri. This talent should have gone to another club especially a coach who would make him an even better player.
If Ronaldo wanted to move…that´s ok. But with that short notice completely unfair to Juventus. What went into his head the last week? Why didn´t he push earlier and let Nedved and co know about his intention.
According to these idiots when juve loose ronaldo is holding back team when barca loose messi is playing good his teamates are letting team down when psg loose neymar is letting team down
top 10 in Serie A is a realistic goal for Juventus this season.
JUVE. The biggest joke in Italian and European club football. Good luck at Man U Cristiano. Gab is in denial as always!
They will level out…Fino alla Fine!
Yeah well when u say inter to get 4th, u have to be on the spot for the biased point of view, but no hard feelings lol
Last time they were in trouble vs empoli. CR7 came in and won the match
Gab is always anti ronaldo. Please replace him. Always spoils the mood
Their team is quite weak. Some of their recruitment is defo questionable
what is Empoli?
Gab always says Ronaldo is on a huge money at the club bringing debts to the club. He is always jealous about him. Secondly Juventus isn't doing well without Ronaldo right now but Barcona are OK without Messi no hard feeling watch him at United the legend
Juventus played badly last season
They're playing badly this season
Inter could really defend the Scudetto
Juve are a relegation candidate sadly
Im so butthurt rn. I knew this season will be tougher than before but i didn't expect Juve will crumble this quick
I will be only checking who is going to score 30 goal for juventus in this season ?
No Ronaldo no 30 goals guarantee, no headers no target man inside the box. Juventus are in a big problem if they dont find goals. This could be Milan's year
ESPNFC and Allegri are in denial that it was Cristiano who was single handedly dragging this mediocre Juve for last 3 seasons with occasional help from Dybala, Chiesa, Cuadrado.
Inter lost their two best players and Conte who won them title and is proven in Premiere League still playing better.
It's going to backfire on Allegri and Juve how they treated CR7 the least they can do is appreciate what he has done.
Now it's obvious CR7 wasn't the problem
