Serie A Preview – The Resurrection of Juventus

Mention the 2009-2010 season to Juventus’ 170 million fans and they will shake their head in disgust.  Italy’s most successful and beloved soccer team was a shell of itself, missing out on a European tournament spot due to poor play and aging players.  It is not a coincidence that the […]

Rating Italy’s players in South Africa 2010
