In Monchi I trust

Monchi – Roma’s Sporting Director Serie A is moving in some interesting directions. Juventus has signed the second best Ronaldo of all time, there is a new TV deal that may finally see some ability to watch legally in our part of the world (although I’m not holding my breath), […]

Er Pupone

Francesco Totti played his last game for Roma some weeks ago now, and despite the incredible occasion sparking emotion all over the world from friends and foes alike, I haven’t really reacted much online yet. I have been meaning to blog on it for a while, but a combination of […]

Door number two

Eight years ago, Roma parted company with a much loved tactician – Luciano Spalletti. He had been at the helm of the club for four years and in that time he had revolutionised football around the world by inventing the ‘strikerless’ 4-2-3-1 formation. For fans, it was hard to watch […]

The Italian Canaries

After dispatching the reigning champions in our second game of the season, Roma’s next fixture, after the international break, is against slightly more humble opponents – Frosinone. “Who on earth are Frosinone???” you might understandably ask? Well, seeing as though there isn’t much else I feel like writing about this […]
