And Totti's been amazing. I would say people should pay more attention to what he's doing before he's gone
It's really been amazing to see. It's not like some other top players of his age that have taken a bit of a backseat but have their brilliant moments here and there. He's put the team on his back and is running around like a teenager. His rating on sites like whoscored as among the top 10 most productive attacking players in the world underrates what he's doing so far, if anything. I'm not sure there's a playmaker anywhere that's been as consistently sublime as him so far this season, regardless of age.
Agree that, like with Pirlo, he's just such a special type talent that does so many things with the ball that no one else even considers. There's not really another in his mold.
It's actually kind of sad to see lists of top100 players with him not even present when 75% of the list would have to stand on their tiptoes to see over his bootstraps.
I would like to see a stat for the amount of ground Bradley covered in the Fiorentina game. I didn't think his "end product" was that amazing, but he was literally everywhere
Probably Roma will only ultimately challenge Juve if Bradley comes a bit closer in his end product to what Marchisio gives them. But, he's been invaluable so far. His movement is smart as well as tireless and makes everyone else that much better.
