22 goals scored 1 allowed, has to be the greatest start in serie a history.

How did they get THIS good? It goes against all reason.

Did the internationals play for both teams?

benatia, lljaic and gervinho filled in more than adequately, plus totti and pjanic seems to play better than ever.

What Turco said. Also, Rudi Garcia is a really good manager. :)

Alessandro Florenzi's emergence has also been a factor.

What the hell happened to Juve? It looked to me that they were going to get better after the signings they made. Roma dominating and Juve struggling, soccer can be such a mistery.

Tevez has been great, but Llorente has been a non factor. Their only other signing was Ogbonna who is back up for the other 3 center backs. What they fudged up on was not getting another GOOD player to play wide in the 3-5-2... with Lichsteiner (and Pepe) hurt they're forced to play one of the following scrubs: Padoin, Isla (he's the worst), De Ceglie, Peluso, or Marco Motta. None of these players belong on a champions league team.
Oh, and, selling Giaccherini while blocking Isla's transfer haunts me every single day....lol.....seriously tho

Today Conte was out coached by Montella. Juve went up 2-0 and already had Real Madrid on their minds. Fiorentina's first goal was a bad PK decision, then it was all downhill from their. Giuseppe Rossi is a superstar, Quadrado is a beast.

this Roma team now reminds me a lot like Juve of 2 years ago, when they went undefeated...
They don't have to worry about playing in Europe, they are surprisingly deep, with a legend as captain still playing at an incredible level,, and a new coach who has done everything correct right from the start.

I heard Juve has been interested in Victor Ibarbo, do you think he will help? He is like a bigger, faster, and more muscular Cuadrado, but the dude's IQ is not all that high. He always plays at a difference pace than the rest of the team.

What about Cuadrado? Why is Udinese still loaning him out?

I think Cuadrado was bought permanently after the end of last season?

and Ibarbo is good, scored a great goal yesterday, but I wouldn't rate him higher than Vucinic.

Yeah, which is why I am curious on why Juve was intrested in him. Maybe for a change of pace kind of player off the bench?

Man.. was speaking to a Roma fan today at the pub and he's been telling me that Gervinho's been the best player in Serie A this season. What happened with the 5 head. :lol:
