Black night for Juve

Well, it was 2-0 going on 5-0 for the Italian champions elect at Highbury last night which was both disappointing and embarrassing. The Bianconeri started off alright but quickly faded as the Gunners took the initiative and a big advantage to the Delle Alpi next week. A few random thoughts on proceedings:

1) Why did a manager so astute as Capello bring Zebina with him to Turin? He looks a liability and is prone to seeing red on a regular basis.

2) Is Adrian Mutu really any good? He gets good reviews in Serie A but was a failure (for a variety of reasons) in the Premiership and rarely impresses in Champions League.

3) Once Ibrahimovic was well-marked the Juve attack had very little to offer. Despite what Luciano Moggi says they do need some back up to Trez-Del P-Ibra as the gap to Zalayeta is too great.
