"What the hell was Bonucci doing?!"
"Bonucci was just ball watching when Genoa scored SMH [shake my head for those not done with the kids]."
Following a momentary lapse in concentration on Saturday that would - for the first time this season - cost Juventus two points, Juventini lambasted Leonardo Bonucci.
Juve fans had been waiting, some self-deprecatingly longing, for Bonucci to underperform, because in truth, large sections of the Juventus faithful haven't quite forgiven him for leaving the club 12 months ago.
And it's understandable.
Under a cloud of rumours surrounding a massive dressing room dispute - which Bonucci was reported to have been at the heart of - during the 2017 UEFA Champions League final, the 31-year-old left Juve in favour of bitter rivals AC Milan. And to add salt to that wound, he then celebrated a goal against his former club at the Allianz Stadium as if he'd just won the World Cup...poor form.
Since that short layover at I Rossoneri, and despite admittance that it was the move was a mistake made "in a moment of anger", La Vecchia Signora fans haven't really re-warmed to Bonucci.
Although recent errors against Chievo Verona and Genoa haven't exactly helped with de-thawing process, on Tuesday night,

Solidi, consapevoli, compatti. Ci eravamo ripromessi di reagire dopo sabato e lo abbiamo fatto in un contesto unico! // Solid, aware, compact. We had promised to react after saturday, did it in a suggestive place! #LB19 #UCL #FinoAllaFine pic.twitter.com/94qsPsZDGh— Leonardo Bonucci (@bonucci_leo19) October 23, 2018
It's explicitly clear that the Italian international will need another 100 odd performances just like this one to win La Vecchia Signora's affection once again; but Tuesday night was undoubtedly a start.
