It's simple, when certain teams defend well, it's an art, and when other teams do it, its shameful parking of a bus
Its not that simple. But the simple thing here is that knowledge has failed you.
Defense (note the spelling) as an art is an Italian specialty.
What Jose does is not defense art, but anti-football, most exemplified by his Inter team which chose to not have the ball in a football game! Imagine what would happen to the sport if half the teams decided they did not want the ball?
You will note, if you were paying attention, that the game was being controlled in large part by Juve, but from a defensive orientation, and always, ALWAYS with the threat of a successful attack.
You may want to revisit the tactics thread. The Azzurri are slowly coming back...mark my words!
Form is temporary; Class is Permanent!
Liverpool, European Champions 2005.
We watched this very boring video, 500 times, of Sacchi doing defensive drills, using sticks and without the ball, with Maldini, Baresi and Albertini. We used to think before then that if the other players are better, you have to lose. After that we learned anything is possible – you can beat better teams by using tactics." Jurgen Klopp
