    ....according to Juventus.

    As an old Juventus supporter, I'm cringing at the prospect of the flood of ROFs for the next four years.

    As a Juve supporter this is an awesome move that can possibly save Serie A and help Juve finally win a CL again. He’s literally the Lebron of soccer. Best case strengthing your team by injuring your worst enemy.

    Welcome to the Bianconeri CR!

    I don’t think there is one. They’re both probably Lebron.

    Jordan.

    It's true that his cycle had ended at Real Madrid. The Champions League will be his legacy there. Madrid had that over Barca with him. Now, I expect them to search for their next boss like Minions for a bit. Maybe look to England, probably fail, hopefully not get desperate enough for Neymar, but remain patient for Mbappe or some other unknown player.

    I thought you would say that.

    Messi is the Matt Maloney/ Moochie Norris/ Rafer Alston, (take your pick) of basketball.

    My son is the next. He is 8 playing with 10-11 year old kids at his current soccer camp. I saw him knock a kid over yesterday and then help him up. Which means he is aggressive, but yet a leader.

    lol

    p.s. true story though

    That shows you the influence soccer stars have on the future generation.

    Well, Juventus just lost Gigi Buffon to PSG, who was the face of the franchise and my favorite player. Seeing him play for Paris is going to be like watching Hakeem in Toronto. It's bittersweet, and even if Ronaldo is the best player in the world, I never liked him -- it's hard to imagine rooting for him, though I'm sure I will get used to the idea.

    I started following the sport in the 90s when Serie A was the best league in the world, and I'm all for bringing it back to prominence. And it's also not lost on me that it was Ronaldo's penalty kick for Real at the very end of the match that knocked Juventus out of the Champion's League just a few months ago, so Juve's Champion's League prospects are certainly sky high.

    I know I should be excited, but my favorite player in the game was just replaced by my least favorite player. It's quite a bit to take in. :)

    I wonder if the Juventus Netflix show will continue now. I bet they will want to charge Netflix more now that Ronaldo “the savior” is there.

    He won't be there 4 years. 2 at the most. After that, he'll be in Miami with the Miami Beckhams

    Both fan-bases suck.

    Yeah it’s well done. I love Italy. If I were to live somewhere in Europe it would be there or Budapest.

    "Workers at a Fiat Chrysler plant in Italy are to strike after its main investor decided to pay €112m (£99.2m) to sign footballer Cristiano Ronaldo for Juventus"

    https://www.bbc.com/news/business-44807281

    That's quite a way to welcome your new star player
