Since my previous post was on newer music (and it is a very boring rainy monday) here some top notch ‘old’ postpunk, synth, goth artists you might like. It is a true shame how most of these never crossed the border back then.
Personal favorites in bold.
Gianluigi Buffon (Italy – Juventus) • Kept five successive clean sheets at the start of the 2014/15 season, Juventus’s fourth consecutive Scudetto-winning campaign. •
Captained Juve to the UEFA Champions League final and, six days later,
became the first man to make 50 UEFA European Championship appearances
as Italy drew 1-1 with Croatia.
Paul Pogba (France – Juventus) • Netted a career-best eight league goals as Juventus topped the Serie A table by 17 points. • Set up the Bianconeri’s decisive equaliser in their UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg away to Real Madrid.
Andrea Pirlo (Italy – Juventus, now New York City FC) •
Curled in a trademark free-kick against Olympiacos on his 100th UEFA
Champions League appearance – his only European Cup goal for Juventus. • Named the best player in Itay for the third year running, Pirlo helped the Turin giants to a Serie A and Coppa Italia double.
Carlos Tévez (Argentina – Juventus, now CA Boca Juniors) • His tally of 20 Serie A goals was his highest since the 2009/10 season. • Was part of the Argentina squad that reached the final of the Copa América in Chile.
Arturo Vidal (Chile – Juventus) • Struck the decisive goal against Sampdoria on 2 May that secured the Scudetto for Juventus. • Was ever-present in Chile’s Copa América success on home soil, scoring three goals.
