It really makes me wonder, is Lazio are genuine Serie A contender and European challenger without King Italy himself, Alessandro Nesta?

The San Siro must be Lazio's worst ground to play on. A 2-0 to loss to Milan in the Serie A, and another 2-1 loss in the Coppa Italia and a 0-0 draw to Inter.

In the game against Milan, Nesta and Crespo both got injured, and both had to miss 1 month. When Lazio returned to San Siro a couple of months later to play Inter, Nesta was once again injured, and this time he was thought to miss the rest of the season and maybe even the World Cup. It was later confirmed he'll miss only 1 month.

3 weeks have passed since that injury, and Lazio have played 3 games. The results are:

Milan 2-1 Lazio (Coppa Italia)
Piacenza 1-0 Lazio (Serie A)
Lazio 2-3 Milan (Coppa Italia)

If Nesta was in these games, would the story have been a lot different? Probably just Lazio's bad form that lost them these games. But Lazio's defence is very weak, and I am sure with Stam and Nesta, these results would not have happened. Lazio's defence is somewhat weakened with without Stam and Nesta, with Couto, Favalli, and maybe just a slight bit Panacaro who are veru good defenders. I dunno about Negro, he's crap this year.

What do you think? Does Lazio need Nesta to finish near the top in Serie A? What if Mr Crag sells him at the end of this season or at any time, can Lazio live without him, or will there be another wonder replacement by then?

I would have never imagined an Italian club playing the typical Catetcaino style (or something) would have a problem in the defence!

Lazio doesn't really play typical Catenaccio, we don't have enough good defenders for it anyway.
We do play a defensive game but not really Catenaccio.

Lazio - Perugia 5-0 without Nesta...


I guess you were wrong.
By the way, Negro the scapegoat, scored. So did Fiore the scapegoat.

If you are proud over the Lazio history, then you should be proud over Paulo Negro. He is one of our champions. He always will be.

Some people tend to forget quickly.

I don't mean any disrespect to Negro, I just wanted to make a joke.
I don't rate him as high as some of the other supporters but I can appreciate what he's done. However nowdays I think we could field someone better than him.

No matter what anybody says, negro, although no "glorious" player, is a hard-working player who always gives his best, or at least tries to give. That can not be said for some other of ours super-stars.

Forza Negro!!
