Juventus stadium looks pretty good, I imagine it's full packed.

Cavani joined Napoli at Turin, didn't have a second to breath after playing twice for Uruguay.

I love Asamoah's game. What a complete midfielder.

Beautiful win for Fiorentina today against Lazio. They ended with only 9 men but the 2-0 scoreline was definitely a just result. Fiorentina dominated the game apart from a 10 minute spurt at the beginning of the second half. Brilliant goals from Ljajic then Luca Toni to seal it.

Catania got robbed.

Sebastian Giovinco shouldn't be 3rd in the pecking order when Nicklas Bendtner is the starter.

Juve continue to run away with it, Inter only 4 pts back though. Race for 3rd will be fun to watch, Napoli, Lazio, and Fiorentina the early favorites

I'm honestly not ready to crown Juve champs. As much as I hate to say it, Inter look to have found a breath of fresh air. Handovic is about 20x better then Cesar was last year, and Palacio/Cassano seem to be working out as well. Definitely more interesting race now.

Agreed, it looks like those two are the clear favorites. Stramaccioni has Inter playing really, really well together

The novelty of Inter's 3-1 win in Torino has more than worn off. I don't believe they're for real and never have, which makes the loss so much more frustrating.

It was agitating seeing Juventus dominate Lazio in every phase of play and not score a single goal. We deserved three points, but Marchetti played excellent. With Pirlo playing, I don't know that we don't find some way to get the breakthrough, but I'm hardly going to sell Pogba short either - just think he's better suited to spell Marchisio or Vidal, rather than Pirlo, as some seem to have him pegged for in the future.

I say again, the two teams that worry me as a Juventus fan are Napoli and Fiorentina (when Jovetic is playing).

We still need a legitimate striker up front. Quagliarella is very good when he's on top of his game, but he can't be relied on to finish against the best in the world on a consistent basis. Our offensive production has always come from the midfield, which is fine. But if Juventus had a clinical finisher up front, we'd be a complete team.

Maybe I'm nit picking. Scudetto problems.

Fiorentina showed they can cope without Jovetic with two convincing wins at Milan and against Atalanta. The soul of the team is now the midfield, but I can't wait to have the whole team healthy finally with Pizarro, Borja, and Aquilani supplying Jovetic up front. Really optimistic about a top 3 finish, our schedule over the next month or so is pretty easy too. Don't know how realistic a Scudetto challenge is, I think Juve is the best team in Serie A, but you never know. Either way, I think 2nd is a very realistic goal for this team.

Cope, sure, but Jovetic is one of the most palpable scoring threats in Serie A, if not the most. He doesn't get the credit he deserves based on the team he plays for. With him in the lineup, Fiorentina has a punchers chance against even Juventus. We are the best team in Serie A, but we desperately needed to be beaten. Still, I think our match against Chelsea tomorrow could be indicative of how the remainder of our season is played out.

Oh I know we need him for the Scudetto chase, but its nice to see that the future (more than likely without Jojo in 1/2 years) will still be bright.

We deserved 3 points at the Franchi against Juventus in September, I think the return fixture in Turin will be the biggest match of the season. Hopefully it will still be a close race on February 10
