Interesting to read that Juve have just opened their OWN new stadium, a move designed to financially strengthen the club because, in Italy, clubs rent rather than own stadiums. This should open a few Claret and Blue tinted eyes. I have warned all along that if a football club doesn't own its own stadium, it doesn't own anything of substance so, if you hit stormy waters on or off the pitch, you are in big trouble.
Sullivan and Gold don't give a damn about this of course. These two West Ham fans like Parker, may be in it for the money. Sell the Boleyn and pocket the dosh, then sell the club for double what they paid for it to any money laundering scumbag who happens to be in the market at the time. Cushty.
There's another lesson to be gleaned from the new Juve stadium as well. It has a capacity of 41,000 with the front seats only seven metres from the pitch in order to provide an intimidating atmosphere, standing in stark contrast to the old ground which was often half full and where players complained that the crowd's distance from the pitch created a subdued atmosphere. If Juve ever come to play a friendly in the OS it will be a case of back to the future for them then!
