Terrible first half. Wish we could change 7 or 8 players in halftime. Lucky being up with 1-0.

Really happy for Strootman.

Great sub Spalletti._.although you could say Dzeko should've started.

You could just feel it coming couldn't you, that pain of failing to hold on.
Florenzi sets up Cagliari for their tying goal in the 87th minute, we fail.
SQUANDERED YOUTH

It works if you work it.

We need a new coach ASAP. Spalletti won't be here at the end of the season anyway.

He doesn't have a clue which players should play and in which formation.

It is ridiculous to start with a striker in one game and then without one in the next. How on earth can the players develop understanding and familiarity with their roles when there is such a regular radical tactical change?

I would like Di Francesco to be our new coach.

Stopped watching the misery and im glad i did. And seriously, what the hell is Spalletti wearing, some track comfy snuggles in couch dress clothes. Get some proper clothes on ffs. It's like watching English football back in the 90's

Di Francesco would be nice indeed

It's also time to bench Florenzi and Strootman. They are by far our weakest links atm.

As how it looks now im dreaming of fullbacks containing Peres and Torosidis!

Agree completely on Spalletti's attire, put on suit you poor slob, and have someone else telephone you in the lineup and subs amd formation for each match.

It works if you work it.

2016/17 Serie A Season

Strips De Rossi of captaincy for red card in CL and plays him. I hate Spalletti's cocky attitude but at least last year he had results. Should have just benched him instead. What a prick. And people talk about mentality or mental issues.

There are ways to do things...

I just cant explain how did we completely lose the plot after the excellent half season we had last year under him. The pre season was supposed to do Spalletti good, give him time to consolidate the excellent work he did, not demolish it.

You understand it, you just don't want to face it. Roma gonna Roma.
If Perotti is healthy, he should play and not be subbed.

Jack Wilshere said no to us

Blessing in disguise given who'd be more injured...him or Vermaelen.

It's 1-2 for Sampdoria at home at half-time after a good start from Roma. This team is entertaining to watch but it has too few defensive players on the field to be reliable. Sampdoria is cutting through like butter.

We can't hold a lead. That's a big problem. Really quite a funny thing to witness, classic for a person who has said for years that we are cursed. Score a goal at home against an inferior squad, look quite solid for about 20 mins., raising the hopes of fans, then the opposing team's striker scores the goal of his life, the Heavens open up and produce a Biblical storm and we drop another goal before the half cause a newly purchased defender is sleeping instead of defending a corner kick against a 34-year-old. Field will now be questionable condition to mount any sort of come back, but wouldn't be surprised if Muriel scores a brace.

It works if you work it.

Just woke up...interrupted? Looks like heavy rain.

We suck and we are stuck in a funk. This cant be attributed to losing pjanic as players come and go....what the hell is wrong with us??
