Agnelli to be sentenced today

Andrea Agnelli will be sentenced for his role in the sale of Juventus tickets to ultras on Monday.

The ruling will be heard at the FIGC’s court in Rome, with its prosecutor demanding a two-and-a-half-year ban and €50,000 fine for Agnelli.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, however, the President and his lawyers are ‘moderately optimistic’ and expect just a one-year suspension.

That would have no impact on his ability to lead Juve or his recent appointment as President of the European Club Association (ECA).

Wk6: Human error

Football cannot exist without errors, judgment calls and disagreements, so Susy Campanale warns it's all about the great imponderable elements.

Players making mistakes to cause or miss goals is what football is based on. A Coach will always be accused of doing something wrong, no matter how much or little he changes his team from match to match. Errors, and the avoidance of them, are what make sport possible. It’s also why there are so many debate shows, podcasts, Twitter feeds and blogs like this one, because we don’t all agree on what is right.
