Serie A takes shape again after an anomalous year without the team that symbolises its history. Because there can be no real Serie A without a Juventus to beat, a Juventus to hate and a Juventus to envy. Because winning the scudetto da record against the provincialetti still left a bitter taste since there was no rival to taunt at the end of it all. Because for a short time I would replace the zebra with the phoenix as the symbol of the glorious club that is slowly rising out of the ashes of a sad period in Italy’s footballing history.
Today, Saturday 19th May 2007, we can start talking of the real Serie A again.
Grazie Juve e Forza Juve ovunque e per sempre.
