On Monday, Juventus officially confirmed the signing of Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey as a free agent from July 1, 2019. Ramsey issued his own, understandably emotional, statement via Twitter.

They put out that Ramsey would be making £400,000 a week in basic wages, which is roughly £20.8 million a season, or $26.8m. If that number was accurate,...

Guardiola's gamble pays off, Barca's Messi dependency, Juve's implosion, more

Mon, 4 Feb 2019 08:45:00 GMT

In those circumstances, page 17 of the "Proper Football Man's Coaching Manual" tells you to play it safe and get back to basics in your next game which, incidentally, was by no means a gimme. Arsenal may be rebuilding,...

Juventus suddenly look vulnerable, though Serie A victory seems certain

Thu, 31 Jan 2019 03:04:00 GMT

Atalanta held the reigning Coppa Italia holders to just one shot on goal to book their spot in the semifinals. "It was in the air," Massimiliano Allegri said. You could feel it coming. Wednesday's 3-0 defeat to Atalanta in the Coppa Italia was Juventus' first to an Italian side this season. And within that context, the stunned headline on the front page of Il Corriere dello Sport -- "They know how to lose" -- is understandable. To put the loss into some perspective, Juventus had not been eliminated from the Coppa Italia since Antonio Conte was in charge. They have won it four years in a row and now, finally,...

Wed, 30 Jan 2019 10:40:00 GMT

Juventus' loss against Atalanta was their first in domestic competitions this season. Mid-week matches can be rather taxing on the schedules of the regular football fan, but sometimes the action is just worth it. This was one of those times. In England, Rafa Benitez's Newcastle United stunned Manchester City (2-1) at St. James' Park but Liverpool couldn't extend their lead at the top to seven as Leicester City held them 1-1 at Anfield.
