re: Champions League group stage - 9/17 - wm72
[quote]City and Chelsea play this weekend. Both were on cruise control today because there is no chance they don't get out of their group.[/quote] Chelsea has a pretty easy group but I doubt Man City players and manager formed their opinion of AS Roma from English tabloids and bloggers. City ...

re: AS ROMA 2014-15 Season Thread - wm72
Nice to get a good result tonight at home to start off on the right foot. However, I'm not sure Roma played an amazing match aside from the off the ball movement and finishing being very good in the first half. Roma really didn't look as sound defensively as I would have preferred even before...

re: What's the deal with AVB? - wm72
AVB walked into a pretty good situation at Zenit. They were already a consistently good side (winning Russian league and getting out of CL group stage here and there) and have been so for a while. Even better for AVB, they had little changes from a squad that has been playing a very sim...

re: Champions League group stage - 9/17 - wm72
Roma: De Sanctis; Maicon, Manolas, Astori, Torosidis; Pjanic, Keita, Nainggolan; Iturbe, Totti, Gervinho Hope this goes well. Both De Rossi and Castan being out hurts as it means both CBs + DM are all new arrivals. Glad Garcia is starting Torosidis out of position at LB instead of A...

[quote]considering arsenal have 5 healthy defenders right now, i'm very bummed we failed to land Manolas.[/quote] Manolas looks pretty good but has only played 1 1/2 matches so far. He's not quite top notch reading the game but he's the fastest CB I've ever seen at Roma and good on the ball. ...

re: Serie A Preview: Focus on US Sassuolo - wm72
They were hammered by Inter. Inter is going to be really good this year and Sassuolo's problem last year was being really susceptible to quality sides that sit back a bit and then tear them apart. Mazzarri's among the best at those tactics. ...

In addition to Naingollan, recently, Astori, Matri, and now Murru, Conte and Ibarbo (t...

Kind of a sluggish performance against Empoli yesterday but we got the three points in what was a bit of a trap match. The atmosphere was pretty electric in Empoli for their first home match since being promoted and we rested some key players ahead of the CL match Wednesday. The very bad: ...

[quote]So, my question would be: how has FFP really affected the competitive balance of the game?[/quote] I would say that the main effect is that without FFP, top clubs in all the big leagues would be dealing with at least one new Man City/PSG/Chelsea every few years years. It's not huge in...

re: 3 rumours of why Maicon was dropped by Brasil - wm72
I hope they're all true however I've seen posted that they all originated from some Brazilian comic. I tend to think it's probably more likely that Maicon likes to party and was taking advantage of some illicit Miami nightlife opportunities to which the notoriously chaste Dunga took exception...
