In the championship 80/81 "Signora," fought for the "scudetto" with the "Roma" Niels Pidholma. The key in this confrontation was a meeting for three rounds before the end of the championship in Rome. Turintsy had one point handicap. The match turned muddy. Repeatedly Players were wall to wall. At the 62nd minute was removed reference hav "Juve" Beppe Furin – selfless worker, known as "Fury", I mean "rage." But the interesting thing happened at the end of half an hour game.
Conti hung on Prutstso, Chief Scorer "Roma", that – in the Turonian, which tumbled in a jump ball in the net. Bergamo judge confidently pointed to center field, but when he saw the go-ahead side, ran up to the meeting. After that recorded an offside position. What happened! To end of the championship against "Juventus", which is strained and kept the advantage, rushing the curse on TV endlessly spinning frames goal. Most believed that the goal was. Just a few pet with a specially developed the program failed to prove that at the moment the Turonian was four inches farther from the gate than the defender. That is a goal really was! Whatever it was, at that season in the tactical plan, "Juve" stood above rivals. And therefore, deserved the victory.
However, there was a reason for criticism. "Signora," played with a pronounced forward. Trapattoni was justified: "In Europe, so play often. We do not want to look old-fashioned. " Europe – that's where the club is now looking bosses. In the spring of 1980, "Juventus" was beaten in the semi-final Cup Winners' Cup in London "Arsenal". After a draw in the field – followed by a 1:1 defeat at home. Goal scored before the final whistle Pop Wassen, whose career suddenly end after two years due to severe trauma. In these matches the Italians liked the great Irish playmaker Liam Brady. Very soon he was in Turin. Role in the Brady "Desyatisantimetrovom scudetto" is difficult to overestimate, the best scorer (eight goals), the author of numerous assists leader. In the new season, it will manifest itself even better. But on the European fields or Brady, or "progressive scheme" does not was saved, "Juve" from another embarrassment. In the autumn of 1980, the team was eliminated from the UEFA Cup, he reveals the utter bankruptcy of a penalty shoot-out with "Vidzevom" from Lodz Poland – 1:4.
