An in-form Sampdoria team playing extremely well and battling for 4th spot host our beloved Giallorossi. The ex-Roma player, Antonio Cassano, will surely be up for this one and would love to score on us this weekend.

Expected Roma line-up:

(4-2-3-1)

---------------------Doni--------------------

Cicinho------Panucci------Mexes------Tonetto

-----------De Rossi---------Pizarro-----------

---Taddei----------Perrotta---------Mancini---

--------------------Vucinic-------------------

Taddei injured himself today in practice and he will miss the Sampdoria match as well as the Coppa Italia semifinal match at Catania on Thursday.

Spalletti's 3 likely options:
1. Start Giuly.
2. Start Tonetto at LW attacker, Mancini on the right, and Cassetti at LB.
3. Start Esposito.

Are Romanisti upset about this or does this finally give Esposito a "look"?

I hope to see Montella. I dont care much for Talentino.

I want to see Esposito a little bit. He seems to be our MU specialist.

I am upset as we needed Taddei for the Coppa Italia, especially if we make the Final against Inter or lazio.

I'd like to see Esposito given a "look", but Spalletti will revert to his Tonetto as LW attacker and Cassetti at LB which is just wrong. At least play Antunes instead of Cassetti, if you're going to do that.

Spalletti seems to have his mind made up about getting rid of Esposito. I don't see how Mauro can change Il Mister's mind in 3 weeks.

Yes, although I don't know why you went for him in the 1st place. Not good enough for your team. I think because Di Natale and Di Michele were Spalletti choices but too expensive?

my dearest wish is to win this solid and high, not because of sampdoria, but because of cassano. he is simply a burino. i wouldnt want him back in rome if he paid roma for it!
it wont be an easy match though i am certain of that...

seems as if they've had the better of the chances so far, but im listening to fast-talking italian radio so i could be completely wrong.

Doni has made 3 insane saves, 2 from Cassano and one from Belluci. We´re not playing football at all. Mancini, Perrotta and Cassetti upfront is not exactly bringing any magic.

Inter perfecting non-football in the match I'm watching, but Milan is clueless near the net.
Of course we're dreaming of summer and Soros, only one of which is sure to come. :lazy: Mancini just wants to take the shirt off.

I hope Spall' takes off Perrotta for Aquilani and shifts Pizzaro upfront...

Then maybe we can hope for some creativity:groan:

Grande Doni drives Roma to a 3-0 win while Inter lose 2-1 to Milan. +3 with 2 matches left....had Roma beaten Livorno it would have been +1. :moan:
