11/12/2012 Juventus Co-owned/ Loans UPDATE

5 Mar

Sassuolo continued to cement their position as top dogs of war and w*hore in Serie B, with a comprehensive 2-0 victory over Modena. Its smiles all round again for young Juve striker Richmond Boakye who netted his 7th goal of the season (from 14 matches). A few of his strikes this term can be found here- http://www.ghanamma.com/2012/12/vide…-for-sassuolo/). His countryman, dynamo midfielder Chibsah, failed to play a part in the victory, though has been a regular for the league leaders throughout this season (13 games, 1 goal).

A buoy mixing it fine and dandy with the men…

Dutch flair merchant Ouasim Buoy has won back his starting spot at Brescia, and put in a good shift in Brescia’s 2-2 home drew with Reggina. Its great to see him back in the first XI after returning from injury in late November. His Juve cohort at Brescia, Fausto Rossi fared somewhat worse, finding himself nursing a gouged eye with just ten minutes on the clock, after a drunk gypsy broke through the barriers and aimed a nail at his snout, forcing him to head for the emergency ward!. Both players have managed 12 games thus far during their loans, and as with the Africans mentioned above, they deserve praise, for playing prominent roles in teams fighting for promotion. Brescia remain 5th in the table.

Pro Vercelli continue to suffer greatly, I would like to think mainly due to the absence of still recovering from injury Gabriel Appelt, suspended Uncle Albert Masi and out of form Elio De Silvestro. Their 3-0 mauling at the hands of bottom of the league Grossetto would have been terrible for morale and perhaps rotten food for thought for the chariman, who must be wondering how long to persevere with the hapless Giancarlo Camolese. They were always likely to struggle after jumping up a league, but at this rate they could be dead and buried before Christmas. The return of Arch Angel Gabriel can not arrive too quickly…

The latest in a short line of potential Buffon heirs, Nicola Leali, made his 15th appearance of the season between the sticks as his loan club Virtus Lanciano fought hard to achieve a creditable 0-0 away draw with Crotone. It will surprise nobody, despite his royal lineage, to learn that French defender Prince Gouano remains stuck on 1 game played this season, yet again failing to even make the bench…shame on him. Surely something must be done when the window re-opens, or are we to let him rot into nothingness, only to achieve a place in the Juve senior ranks a la vierchowod, aged 46…takes a while longer for some players to mature.

Over at Cesena, Empoli continued their siege on the top 6 by demolishing their opponents 1-3, with regrettably little to no help from any of our youngsters. Boniperti, still to set foot onto the field for a competitive fixture this season, was nowhere to be seen, and Spinazzola managed solely a handful of minutes in stoppage time.

More positive news drifted out of Vicenza, where both attacking midfield M. Giandonato and always improving goalkeeper C. Pinsoglio played from start to finish in the 3-3 draw with Livorno. With the latter maintaining his ever present first team selection for the season…

Frederick Sorensen – The young dane who grew up idolizing Freddy Kruger is now finding consistency in Serie A, swapping his blades fingers for quick feet at Bologna.

Our Danish berserker Freddy ‘kruger’ Sorensen showed his value with a calm performance in Bologna’s 0-0 draw with Lazio. Christian Pasquato made a cameo towards the end of the game, with Gabbadini crying off injured before the first XI was announced. Ciro Immobile was entered the fray after an hour, but was unable to stem the flow of woe his Genoa side were receiving from Pescara, resulting in a 2-0 loss.

Over the last few weeks, the primavera have been storming their way to the top of their domestic league…beginning with a 2-0 home victory over Parma-
Laurentiu Branescu – Jacob Laursen, Hördur Björgvin Magnússon, Filippo Penna, Daniele Rugani – Jakub Hromada, Elvis Kabashi, Giuseppe Ruggiero, Vykintas Slivka – Stefano Beltrame, Léo 
Goals- Bonatini 45, Beltrame 71

Followed up with a 1-2 away win over Livorno-
Laurentiu Branescu – Pol García, Hördur Björgvin Magnússon, Daniele Rugani – Elvis Kabashi, Federico Mattiello, Giuseppe Ruggiero, Andrea Schiavone, Vykintas Slivka – Stefano Beltrame, Stefano Padovan 
Goals- Kabashi 6, Padovan 73

Finishing with a 1-0 triumph over Sampdoria-
Laurentiu Branescu – Pol García, Hördur Björgvin Magnússon, Daniele Rugani – Matteo Gerbaudo, Federico Mattiello, Giuseppe Ruggiero, Andrea Schiavone, Vykintas Slivka – Stefano Beltrame, Léo 
Goals- Beltrame

We now sit 1st in the league…Played 13, 29 points, GD +8.
Top scorers in our Juve crèche- 
Padovan 7 (10 games)
Beltrame 5 (10 games)
Bonatini 2 (8 games)

(in response to a question regarding the highly regarded Leo Bonatini…He has a tricky task to dislodge Padovan and Beltrame as the main strikers in Baroni’s team, but has shown consistent quality in the minutes he has managed. Two goals from seven starts in the league…2 goals from 3 substitute appearances in the NEXTGEN series. Perhaps by the time the Viareggio tournament appears on the horizon, he will be firing on all cyclinders, but even now, he is fast becoming a delightful luxury to have on the bench to bring on and dance the samba before shotting his pistols in the air Asprilla style)
