Playing Siena is always weird. They have Romanisti Curci, Galloppa, Kharja, and we have Taddei, Loria from them. I'm sure there are others.
Anyway, disappointing first half. Need a spark.

ridiculously uneventful first half:
Jarolim should have been sent off for a 2nd bookable offense.
Baptista was denied by a finger tip save by Curci on a very odd looking play.



Other than that, we look like a team whos midfield has never played together.....maybe because it hasnt. Lots of people out of position and not making the right runs. Totti has looked out of sorts as can be expected, and Siena are VERY well organized defensively. IF the game is to be won today, it will be won in midfield. We need to be stronger there, pass quicker and be more incisive.

the 2nd half is a bit better and more tries are shown by both sides,
i think the 3 pts are the more important for Roma, no doubt.

congrats. :)

Fantastic win, given the injury situation. Great strike by Taddei. But he and Filipe will probably be the only 2 people who remember this game.


Curci had some flappers at the end there that made me a bit worried about his progress though.

Ooh, and Montella almost scored, but for a good save from Curci. How great would that have been huh?

CIcinho and Juan went down with injuries today.D-man looked good today for Juan aside from being too soft one maybe 1 play.They both picked up minor injuries me things so they should be alright for Arsenal.

Mexes also picked up a shoulder injury or chest...which ever....he manned it up and played through it with a grimace all over his face...although after the goal he looked more comfortable but still you can tell he was being cautious.

Anybody else think he deserves the armband after Totti DDR and Monty?Would like to see who gets it if Totti and DDR are subbed one day.Probably Brighi,whom might I add had another hustle and grinding match.Dude never stops running.

Lol, let's hope it doesn't reach the point when all three of them are injured at the same time, but he is a good candidate along with Mexes in my opinion.

not according to c4 :( lets hope they are wrong tho and you are right. :thumbsup:

"There was a scare at half-time, as Juan limped off with a suspected thigh strain and is now a major doubt for Tuesday's trip to Arsenal."

"Cicinho had just returned from a right knee injury and limped off with pain in the same area, adding to Roma's injury woes. "

If anything it looked like Maccarone rolled on Juan's ankle.Didnt now it was a suspected thigh strain.

I hope Mexes can shake it off and Cicinho....Nasri scares me on on the left and I dont think Motta can handle it just yet.

maybe he can play under injections??
I mean I doubt he will make a full recovery in time, but hopefully at least he will be able to run.

i mean if he doesnt play who do you got? Loria :yuck:
or the new guy Diamounte..... he is too big of a gamble for such a big gmae.
