    Hey Sam, really like your Serie A and Juventus articles. I just read your 4-3-3 article, but what do you think Juventus need to do to win the champions league and become the best team in Europe? As a Dortmund fan, some good players that may suit you guys from the bundesliga are Firmino, Ricardo Rodriguez as left back, forming the Swiss connection with Lichsteiner. Lastly I just had this crazy thought but what if Balotelli joined Juve!?!?
    I read somewhere that Maldini said it would make him a champion but would it ever happen?

    Hey Sam how do you do ? For some time now i've been beginning to think of a somewhat "evolutionnary" idea in our potential and inevitable switch of formation to conquer Europe; why not switch to a 4-3-1-2 ? That way, the regista position would become a purely defensive midfield position and we have the best player in the world that could fill it, i.e. King Arturo. By doing that we would only need 2 star signings : A left-back and a trequartista. For left-back, the obvious choices would be either Kolarov or Coentrao, as for the trequartista position, there are many alternatives but i can see a future Pogba with more pace fit really well in there. So if we sell him, then we purchase someone like Goetze, Isco or Iniesta (just like them !!). Any thoughts Sam ?

    Hey Sam how do you do ? About last night's performance, aren't you beginning to see an odd trend in the way we play recently, be it Serie A or the Europa League ? The trend i'm talking about is that we play in terrific fashion and totally dominate our opponents home or away for a given period (usually the first half or even up to 60 minutes), and after that we become somewhat complacent; we sit back too much and enjoy our lead (even a tiny one !!) and our counters are way too timid. I don't understand, what's the meaning of this ? It happened against Samp, Toro, the 1st leg against Trabzonspor and yesterday and sunday against Fiorentina !!!

    Sam you are so wrong about Pirlo vs Xavi. Pirlo might be better at some things but Xavi overall is a way better player and achieved far more.

    Sam, good article about Vidal. Most people believe the best player is the one who scores the most. But as you, I prefer players who can perform excellently in a wide variety of functions. If you like that kind of player, a complete one, with presence all across the field, a game organizer, with killer passes, good free kicks, fast, good dodging, and who scores frequently, then you should take a look to James Rodriguez.

    Hey, Sam. Thanks for checking. You're right about the 24-hour window for sourcing, but that is regarding "breaking news." The links/citations that I inserted were to account for rumors. According to Content Standards, "Rumors must be hyperlinked to an original, credible source and named in-text."

    Indicating that a team (Juve) has "interest" is a rumor and so is the "reported" release clause.

    No problem, Sam. I actually made a typo in the feedback! I could do with an editor sometimes. I meant to write 10 should be written in digits, as I think there were a few occasions where you had it as a word. When starting a sentence, all numbers are written as words, but aside from that only numbers 0-9 are written as words.

    Hope that helps,
