TURIN, December 7, 2011 – Due to the games so far cooked by Juventus, in the summer must have been done best spending post-Calciopoli. Four ingredients once served in the main course: Pirlo, Lichtsteiner, Vidal and Vucinic, in order of arrival. Not random. Having restored the house, in the beginning was hired as architect the best in circulation, Andrea Pirlo. Even before the engineer, copyright Conte, that is the coach: anyone who had come, should have put the former AC Milan at the head of the yard. First law of good leadership: if you can take a phenomenon, not hestitate for a second. To the fact Beppe Marotta and the technical coordinator Fabio Paratici began to pack him in the spring. Although vaguely comical scenes, like when the player’s agent Tullio Tinti, most experienced and wise guy, he was surprised at Vinovo: “I came to say hello to Toni and Matri.” Yeah, right. Two days after the end of the season, Pirlo was black and white.
 “Here is our topplayer,” Marotta said after the 4-1 with Parma and after the special effects of the regista. In addition, blowing the competition. The perfect crime. “Pirlo, and free, is the hit of the century, many thanks to Galliani,” smiled in the summer Gigi Buffon. Then ventured into celestial comparisons, at the debut of the new teammate: “When I saw Pirlo play , I immediately thought: there is a God.” There was just a bad thought at the beginning: Pirlo is not the player who is for Conte, everyone whispered. Except that the Juventus coach stood on the lawn at the first workout, playing without him in the day number thirteen for disqualification. It took only a minute to elect him icon for bianconere people : “One like him we have not seen since the days of Platini,” the joke on the steps of the pre-season training camp of Bardonecchia. Total confidence, even if John Elkann, president of financial Exor, the majority shareholder, is presented in Villar Perosa with the jersey number 21. The one of the elected. 


 Pirlo was done in the spring, but had to get renewed in September. So, here’s Stephan Lichtsteiner: pricey, perhaps, 10 million, but it was still the best fullback of the championship, given the physical problems of Maicon. As a good Swiss, is respecting predictions and time . At the end of July, another large hit, Arturo Vidal, pulled from the bag of Bayern Monaco. Defending, attacking, pressing, chasing and scores: in short, the glue of the midfield. So to convert Conte, faithful for years to the 4-2-4 . But : Vidal, Pirlo, Marchisio, will be the plate of the midfield. To edit the attack, had peeled each menu, from Aguero to Giuseppe Rossi. But with the budget close to deep red, counted the price column. 


 Better Vucinic, 15 million: with generous discount from Rome, which had departed from the 20, and resounding no reduction in quality, compared to Rossi. If Pepito cost thirty million, the Montenegrin certainly not worth the half , on the field. Bitter for now is just the icing, put the last day: Eljero Elia, 9 million and 45 minutes on the pitch. Too bad to be true, if Hamburg and Dutch national lottery ends up there. Will have time until June to find himself here. Can not move anywhere else: three card in the same season are prohibited. Who knows, time can work miracles: Krasic, who seemed to god that wing, is lost, and unlike Pepe has climbed the Mount Olympus. It seemed an exorbitant ransom for him, with 7.5 million Udinese (and 10 total), after a season crumbled in the seventh place: he is one of the best. And Bonucci, this summer has featured over the shop window and found, with Cesena, also a good Sunday.
