Well, here goes: Roma vs. the worst club in the league at home. Anything other than a win would set off an immediate double crisis. The derby loss shocked my soul. I hope the players aren't feeling as defeated as I. Now's the time for a good looking win. Monty returns. Maybe Del Neri will have the balls to field a real 3-4-3. His neck is on the line after Thurs. night. Our central defense was swiss cheese and our GK ran out of position on all three goals. That can't be tolerated. Central midfield looks like the obvious concern vs. Atalanta. Here is Gazzetta's potential starting line ups as of Friday night:

22 Pelizzoli
5 Mexes
31 Dellas
8 Ferrari
30 Mancini
5 De Rossi
25 De Martino
2 Panucci
10 Totti
9 Montella
18 Cassano

A disposizione
12 Zotti
19 Scurto
32 Candela
21 D'Agostino
11 Corvia
99 Mido

Allenatore Del Neri
Chivu, Dacourt e Tommasi.

Cufrè, Aquilani e Perrotta

1 Taibi
13 Innocenti
24 Sala
25 Natali
16 Rivalta
19 Zenoni
8 Bernardini
53 Migliaccio
7 Marcolini
18 Montolivo
29 Pazzini

A disposizione
28 Calderoni
3 Calderoni
11 Budan
31 Lorenzi
21 Lazzari
26 Motta
22 Mingazzini

Allenatore D. Rossi

Albertini, Bellini

Forza La Roma

You cheered me up when I was feeling the same way, so let me try and cheer you.
I think we will defeat Chievo on Sunday and be at 29 points going into the ritorno. The dreadful first part of the season is almost over and Roma will be able to "start over" again in a decent spot to challenge for a CL spot, especially if Milan beat Udinese this weekend.
Totti is a Romanista at heart and I believe he will remain here. His presence would disrupt other clubs, and I believe Roma will find a way to keep him and buy other players to satisfy him. Cassano may not stay in all truthfulness, but we would get a huge sum of money for him and/or other talented players. I hope he does stay, and he still might. He is still kissing Totti on both cheeks prior to matches, and his goal celebration at the derby was genuine. Real may not even want him.
Let's enjoy these months ahead. It may or may not be the last time we see the two together, so let's savor it and not dread what we don't know.
