For the first time in history, we can see what an Andrea Pirlo team is all about.

And that simple fact, it doesn't matter if it's a friendly or the first game of Serie A, it's something we've never seen before. This is newly discovered territory that Juventus is about to take down, and we are going to see right in front of our eyes, and only in the eyes, as we really can't be there in person because of this stupid pandemic, what this Pirlo's initial release. Juve is like.

It is not the full version.

It may not be the one we see in a month or two.

But this is today's first impression against Novara. The first impression.

I don't remember a friendly, especially one that will take place a week before the new season starts, that has so much intrigue. It was not like that with Maurizio Sarri. It was not like that with Max Allegri and Antonio Conte. This is the first adventure into the unknown. And while this first game, and remember, is a friendly with a new coach in every sense of the term, it will mean nothing in qualifying as Juventus will have a game next Sunday, this is something important to watch.

Simply because we don't know.

And maybe that's the fun thing. It's definitely part of the nervousness.

But it's also an incredibly curious moment in which we are going to learn what Pirlo's vision is as a coach and what he can do with this team with each passing week. That's at least ... a bit exciting? I do not know. It's an interesting time to support this club, that's for sure.
