24/10/2012 Juve primavera/ co-owns/ loans update

5 Mar

Our latest ‘future Buffon’, Nicola Leali played the full 90’, but got beaten 3 times in the 0-3 Virtus Lanciano home loss to Empoli. Prince Gouano, also at Lanciano, didn’t even make the bench, so is injured or out of selection. As for our Empoli contingent; no sign of Spinazzola (4 games, 1 goals), nor Boniperti (0 apps).

Over at Pro Vercelli, our young brazilian Gabriel Appelt (8 apps, 1 goal) continued to maintain his consistent selection, playing the full 90 in the 1-2 home loss to Padova. Masi (7 apps, 1 goal) also played from the start, but was given an early bath in the 91st minute. Both are regulars for Pro Vercelli as is Di Silvestro who wasn’t in the squad but has made 7 appearances thus far, scoring one goal in the process.

Fausto Rossi managed half hour as a sub in Brescia’s 1-1 away draw to Bari. It was his 6th appearance of the season. Unfortunetly, dutch sensation Oussim Buoy (6 apps, 1 goal) failed to make it off the bench.

Ternana drew 0-0 with Vicenza who are home to Pinsoglio(10 apps), who played the full 90, and Giandonato (4 apps) who failed to escape the sidelines.

Our Ghanian lads, Chibsah (8 apps, 1 goal) and the much talked of Boakye (6 apps, 3 goals) both turned out for Sassuolo in their 1-0 away loss to Cittadella.

Last season’s muscleman from the primavera, Libertazzi, injured or out of form, was excluded from the match day squad for Vicenza’s 2-1 away loss to Crotone. The big striker is yet to make a single appearance for his loan club.

Sorensen has only managed one appearance so far this season at Bologna, where Juve buddies Pasquato (1 app) and Gabbadini (6 apps) are also attempting to make the step up from Potentially Useful to Valuable Enough To Bring Home, hoping to avoid Progressed Only So Far As To Prove A Useful Makeweight In a Future Deal For Another Player.

Overall we should be content to see most of our youngsters gaining valuable experience through playing regularly at their respective loan/ co-own clubs. Boniperti, Libertazzi and Pasquato are disappointing, but the rest are doing fine and dandy. 

As for an update on the rather ajbect progress of our Primavera boys…
We drew 2-2 away to Genoa last weekend, leaving us in 8th position with 8 points. Which can be no surprise given our last five results looking horribly like DLDLW. Much improvement is required, beginning with this weekends dearby with Torino. On the positive side we have a game in hand on most teams above us. Padovan grabbed both the goals against Genoa. It seems that with the age restrictions changing prior to the start of this primavera season, we are paying the price, results-wise, for bedding in players younger (so less experienced and matured physically) than in previous seasons.
