I should be at this game, but it's a shame Cigarini's out, i would have liked to see how our little co-owned star is doing. Also relishing Zarate and Rocchi in action for the first time.

I was at the game today, until Atalanta scored, you looked the far more controlled team. Your midfield passed the ball around very well and Zarate is awesome. But it's clear to me that your main problem is a lack of height in the squad. Atalanta won almost everything in the air.

After they scored, obviously the game opened up and they got a second after i think it was your left back forget to step-up with the rest of the defence.

A draw would have been fair today IMO.

Funny that I saw the game completely differently. We may have passed the ball well without pressure, but just about every time Atalanta pressed us, our passing game crumbled. About headers, I thought they went about 50/50. Sure, Rocchi and Zarate didn't win any, and that might have given you the impression. But I don't think we suffered in air in midfield or defense. Not to mention that neither of their goals had anything to do with headers...

None of our midfield players should be content with their performance...I actually thought Manfredini was the best of the starters. That says a lot. Brocchi...better not say anything. And Mauri is a ghost, Rossi must realize that.

The defense was ok overall, but couple of bad slip-ups decided the result. Too bad for Rozehnal because until that he had played a very good game. Carrizo has a tendency for overplaying, and it certainly cost us in the first goal.

Our best, again, Zarate.
I meant up front with the lack of height. And in the first half especially, the Atalanta midfield gave the ball away a hell of a lot more than Lazio's.
