As expected after Milan and Inter, Euro Publishing also releases the Juventus album. The cover is already curious, there is no image of the trainer, a particular choice taking into account that Pirlo is much loved by Juventus fans and beyond. Another detail is putting McKennie in the center and the ever-present Cristiano Ronaldo behind, maybe CR7 is not happy 🙂
We reiterate what has already been written in other reviews, an applause to Euro Publishing in knowing how to prepare different albums year after year (we are in the fourth) and also different between the three clubs, waiting to see if the AS Roma album will be released for 2021 too, however, for sale only in the Eternal City.
Let’s start from the bottom, who knows if anyone at Juventus has read the criticisms of the 2019/20 edition present in our review, however more space has finally been given to the female team, both with a few more stickers (including specials) and with the presence in the cards of the top players Gama, Girelli and Bonansea. A very just tribute to the leading squad in Italy and that through these players (not only them .. for example the goalkeeper Giuliani is missing) brings a fundamental contribution to the success of the national team too. Maybe next year we will have the stickers of the entire squad of the black and white girls!
The first pages of the album highlight the new arrivals with many stickers on Chiesa, Morata, Kulusevski, Arthur and the coach Andrea Pirlo. Following the celebration of the ninth consecutive Scudetto, the next page is an interesting novelty with stickers linked to QR codes where you can rediscover the salient moments of the recent Juventus history. The page is also present in the Milan album but in that case with no stickers attached, only printed images.
Following space for the complete squad, 22 players, from Szczensy and Buffon to Ronaldo, Dybala and Morata. The lower number of players compared to the Milan and Inter albums is what allows you to have the pages of stickers with QR codes and more space for women, probably.
The album ends with the Under 23 team and the Juventus “vivaio”. It is appreciable that even for team B, engaged in the Serie C championship, we find stickers dedicated to individual players, who knows that they will not become important rookies of future great champions.
The 32 cards are a nice addition, taking into account that they do not affect the cost of the packet which has remained unchanged at 0.70 (good Euro Publishing!). Great to add the three queens of women’s football, for next year instead of the repeated logo and jerseys, maybe they could think of paying homage to the greats of the past, an appointment to be repeated year after year so as to cover part of the many champions who have dressed the black and white jersey.
