Hello, bianconeri!

All’Olimpico di Roma, e’ stata una partita stupenda contro il Milan. Juventus 4-0 Milan. Il nostro portiere  Buffon, ha giocato sua prima finale di Coppa Italia da titolare con la maglia della Juventus. Non aveva mai giocato in bianconero una finale di Coppa Italia. Come sempre, Santo Gigi ci ha fatto rimanere senza fiato con le sue stupende parate. Il Capitano ha spiegato dopo la partita a JTV, i  motivi per cui ha scelto di non sollevare la coppa.   “L’ho lasciato a chi mi ha aiutato”. Lasciando il grande onore a  Marchisio, Lichtsteiner, e Barzagli.  Sono stata molto fiera della mia squadra.  I ragazzi hanno dimostrato ancora una volta che hanno tanta voglia di vincere. Le caratteristiche di ogni calciatore della Juve rendono  questa  squadra stupenda e  completa.  Avanti cosi, Juve!  È tutto per oggi da parte di Miss Juve!  Alla prossima! Fino alla fine! Forza Juve!

 

E’ stata una partita bruttissima per Donnarumma.  Non so cosa stia succedendo con questo portiere.

E’ stato un po’ strano a vedere a Bonucci giocare con la maglia rosso nera. Il motivo perche’ ha lasciato la Juve non si sapra’ mai.

 

 

E’ stata una serata stupenda per la nostra squadra!

Fino alla fine! Forza Juve! XoXo

 

Sometimes, when I feel annoyed with people and things, I express my frustration by writing.  Don’t get me wrong, I also write when I’m happy, but, when I’m frustrated, writing just takes me to another dimension, a less annoying one. It sweeps me away to a quiet place where I can recharge and feel whole again.

Today, my heart was broken. I’m not expecting everyone to understand how I feel, but if you are a soccer fan, you can certainly understand the magnitude of my sadness today.  For those of you whom learned to love and worship soccer from a very early age, you can understand the sadness and the disappointment of a loss.

After Juventus defeated Barcelona twice, some of us, including myself, got a bit overconfident. We felt our team could easily win against Real Madrid and claim the Champions League cup.

As you may have guessed, this was not the case. Ugh!

Unfortunately, that’s life and sports. While it sometimes feels wrong to be in a state of mourning over sports, especially a match wherein no one was injured and everyone returned safely back to their families; I  think it is a good thing to allow yourself to really process your emotions. If I did not feel bad when Juve loses, I would not feel good when they win. If that was the case, what would be the point of watching sports? That emotional attachment one develops with a team is what makes this pastime so exhilarating.

Time to start again.

Take care everyone

XO,

Nunzia

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ce ne andiamo a Cardiff! Ce ne andiamo a Cardiff! 

The song goes on and on. This is a song that we Juventini/bianconeri are singing as the day of our game approaches. Saturday, my beloved Juventus will go face-to-face with Real Madrid in the Champions League Final.
Our team has improved a lot. Our great coach, Mr. Allegri, has done a fabulous job with this team. We just won our six consecutive scudetto, and now, if we win our game on Saturday, we will make history. Our goalkeeper, Gigi Buffon, made it to the Champions League Final in 2003 and 2015, but has never won. At 39 years old, Giogio’ keeps on going strong. This could be his last chance at winning.
Last year, Real Madrid won the Champions League Final. Cristiano Ronaldo is on fire this year, as well. It is going to be a huge/stressful game. I need to do my best to stay calm. A workout prior to the game will be a must.
However, I am confident in my team. We beat Barca! So, we know we can also beat Real Madrid.
Fino alla fine, ragazzi!
XO,
Nunzia
