Definately Mixed Feelings as we lifted our seventh Scudetto in a Row, Napoli were in contorl throught the Serie A Campaign but somehow faulted at the end. We kept our composure and lifted the Scudetto on Sunday.
But it was indeed a Sad moment as Gigi Buffon called an end to to his playing days. Alot of Juves successes has to be credited to Buffon with some amazing saves. A leader and motivator he was the last man behind the most Solid defence in Juve and Italy.

Italy were playing away in snow-blitzed Moscow for a 1998 World Cup qualifier play-off against Russia, a match they drew 1-1.
Buffon came off the bench to replace the injured Gianluca Pagliuca and soon made a stunning save to deny Dmitri Alenichev, thus helping to ensure the Azzurri a place at France ’98….
Grazi Gigi,Grazi Kapitano
