These are Lazio players' ratings so far this season (updated at 30th day, and only players who have been at Lazio for the whole season, so no Stendardo or Dabo here):

Pandev 6.1
Ballotta 6.06
Rocchi 6.02
Behrami 5.97
Siviglia 5.97
Mutarelli 5.94
Ledesma 5.88
Tare 5.88
Zauri 5.77
Kolarov 5.77
De Silvestri 5.76
Cribari 5.74
Mauri 5.74
Mudingayi 5.72
Manfredini 5.6
Meghni 5.46

------
Well, only three players over 6, and the M-midfielders (except Mutarelli) are firmly bottom of the table together with Cribari (but I have some doubt here that he played that much worse than Siviglia). And all this after an improvement, I wonder how low ratings were in the fist half of Serie A. Good old Marco is still amongst Lazio best players. Thank you Marco, but that's quite depressing, you know.

FORZA LAZIO

I don't give too much value to these...certain types of players seem to be better suited for grading. In Lazio sometimes all it takes for Ballotta to get a 6 is saving one shot, while a midfielder or defender making one mistake is almost always 5 or 5.5. In addition, a winning team tends to get better grades even if the difference is only a penalty goal or something. That explains why Siviglia has so much better grades than Cribari...after Siviglia's comeback from injury we have played our best football as a team.

I take these are from Gazzetta dello sport? They generally have the best grades, but I still often disagree with those...

But the list has some things correct...I agree that Pandev has been our best player, and Mauri and Mudingayi among the bigger disappointments.

Are these gazzetta dello sport ratings? If yes, are they available on thier site or you checked them elsewhere?

Anyway, De Silvestri having only two hundreds higher rating than Mauri is just absurd but it could be due to him being sent off twice. Mauri is lucky he scored soem goals after set pieces and gifts from the opponents, if not for that he should have been after Meghni...

Exactly. Cribari had to play quite a few games with Scaloni or Stendardo as his CB partner and the whoel team sucked before Christmas. These ratings are not bad but do not reflect fully the performances of the plyers.

Aye, Kaf, these ratings are from "Gazzetta dello Sport". On the clubs' general average ratings Lazio are last but one with 5,82. Only Cagliari have done worse so far with 5,8.
That tells how these ratings are based on expectations. Lazio hasn't played to its potential, but certainly we haven't been the second worst team in Serie A. It would make sense that the average team-by-team ratings mirror the table. Aside from coach's tactical genius and ref errors, none of which have been much to our favour this year, there should be a direct correlation...

Exactly. And so the right definition could be that Lazio and Cagliari are the most disappointing teams. And Lazio and Cagliari will play the top two in the next round. Talking about direct correlation...

Ah, and Kaf, bashing Delio, are you? :)

No, not really bashing...after what he's done I couldn't do that. But just as the players haven't performed up to their potential, the same holds for our Mister. Too cautious tactics cost us many points in the fall season. As for single games, the home match against Olympiakos is one where Rossi clearly dropped the ball.

But this is a bit hard to write less than a week after a derby win where he beat the best coach in Italy tactically. :)
