Sampdoria Vs. Juventus: I Don't Think Armand Traore Likes Football That Much

Apparently Armand Traore didn't really fancy a game today. After just one minute on the pitch, the French left back on loan for Arsenal signaled to the bench that he needed to be substituted. Incredibly, Traore came off under his own power and was not immediately tended to by the trainer as he came off for Fabio Grosso.

I'm not questioning that Traore is injured, he almost certainly is. It's just interesting that he made basically no effort to see if he could continue. Meanwhile, just a couple of minutes later, Amauri had to be tended to on the sidelines because blood was coming out of some part of his face. Covered in a facemask and bandages, Amauri has decided to soldier on. After coming back onto the pitch, he decided someone else needed to look like him and elbowed Stefano Lucchini in the face. This did not produce a card, somehow. Luchinni was carted off, and Sampdoria brought on Pietro Accardi to replace him. 

Just 30 seconds after the substitution, Angelo Palombo went down in agony for Sampdoria. SOMEONE STOP THIS.
