After all these years, Totti is still class.

Didn't follow Serie A during his prime. Regretting that now

Roma's goalkeeper just mishandled a cross and threw the ball into his own net

2-1

Oh, that was a terrible mistake. Is Stek warming up?

Nah, he has even made a great save since then.

More pressing matters at hand, considering they need to score twice to salvage anything.

In the La Liga match today, Susaeta has fallen down about 30 times in the past 5 minutes. Laporte also rugby tackled Iraizoz (they're on the same team). Currently 2-2 between Valladolid and Athletic.


ETA: Ends 2-2. Ibai missed a sitter with about 5 minutes left. Not a bad result, just could have been much more.

Why sack him after the transfer deadline has passed?

They have gone like seven games without a win and are in danger of/have dropping/dropped out of the Europa League places. Most managers could field a side significantly different than Zeman's with the same players.

Exactly, more than simply a run with a few disappointing results, this is what's behind his firing.

Zeman is totally fixed on running his system, his way. The fans have turned on his leaving out quality players too often that aren't "fitting" like De Rossi and Pjanic.

If you win with these type players on the bench it's one thing but you can't drop points to Bologna, Chievo and Cagliari without creating an angry mob.


Zeman may have been his own worst enemy in this regard. He employed a 3-4-3 (for him, the first time ever) to get both DDR and Pjanic on the pitch together to a pretty good result but then abandoned it.


The idea that a 3-5-2 or 4-2-3-1 may be a much better fit for Roma's roster has been a constant media topic.




On the other hand, one wonders how it's possible that the directors thought they'd get anything else with Zeman.

Attacking 4-3-3 with fullbacks camped in the opposing box all day every day . . . Scoring a ton . . . conceding a ton . . . playing/developing young players over veterans . beating top teams 4-1 and losing to bottom dwellers 5-4. . that's Zeman.



Roma's quality, aside from Totti and De Rossi, are all extremely young and the only reason to have expected a CL spot was the idea that some top Serie A sides are way down but that's hardly proven to be the case with Fiorentina, Napoli, Lazio and even Inter and AC Milan all either moderately or drastically improved.

Honestly, from like the four Roma games that I've caught this season, anything other than, "everyone but the center backs go forward" could have added defensive stability.

Zeman is awesome, though, and I've developed a soft spot for Roma through him, Michael Bradley, and your analyses this season.
