When someone tells you it’s a thumbs-up, the default reaction is usually to laugh and go your way You get it, but you probably don’t want to hear it There may be -be a smile, a chuckle or something that makes it sound like you want to hear it, but you probably don’t

A few inches from a victory at Juventus A few inches from at least more than a goal A few inches from a potential hat trick A few inches from saving Juventus from another game where they don’t ‘didn’t play well at all and saw a player sent off in the second half

But, as we found out in Juventus’ 1-1 draw against Crotone, it wasn’t just a story of Morata about to score a trio of goals representing only a fraction of what really happened And, unfortunately for people who actually support Juventus, that meant one referee was stealing a lot of spotlight for anything but the right reasons and had two massive calls – one involving Morata and the other debutant Federico Chiesa – rocking the wholesale game the opposite direction from where it seemed to be heading

The first call rocked the game for the simple fact that Juventus didn’t look good at all with 11 players on the pitch, and Chiesa’s red card who was far, far from an actual red , made the situation worse Then you have a call where Morata is barely offside by a few inches – if not less – and a potential winning goal is taken off the board when you maybe thought Juve will steal three points in a match she probably didn’t deserve win

Well, no, obviously not You look at what Crotone has done so far in the early stages of their Serie A comeback and it looks a lot like a newly promoted side battling even top level opposition, even in the middle of the road Regardless of absences due to COVID-19 positives and injuries, Juventus had the kind of roster (on paper) that should always have won three points, no matter how Crotone played

And yet we ended up with a disappointing performance against a team that will likely fight for relegation and a referee who had more than one call that played a huge part in the final score being what he ended up being You can handle Juve badly while playing, but when you get bad refereeing on top of that? Yeah, that’s where the blood starts to boil

We knew Juventus had a lot to improve coming out of the draw with Roma And missing some of your best players was never going to help Pirlo this week or two But Juventus didn’t look much better against an opponent who is a few steps below Roma It might not have been a big step back, as it’s so early in the season and there are so many contributing factors that have played a part in it all You just wanted to see Juventus play better against the team that was last in the table compared to the last time it entered the field

This one just Yeah To steal a Janice Soprano quote, I have a lot of things I want to say now that I’m not going to say This is just one of these days – and Serie arbitration A did not help at all
