Weak. Shaky. Crippled. Mid February. Is this the end? Are we back to last year with Di Francesco and Ranieri? Is Fonseca going to resign if we don’t beat Gent and Lecce this weekend?
Is this team dissolved? Unable to win games. Unable to react. The worst run of 2020 after Spal, Brescia and Cagliari. Lost against Torino, Juve, Sassuolo, Bologna, Atalanta. Draw with Lazio. Only won with Genoa, at the last gasp. Out of Coppa Italia. 4th place far away. Europa League the only thing left. With Friedkin looming.
If only told we would be facing Atalanta with Peres and Spinazzola on the flanks, the former booted away to play in Brazil’s second division, the latter already sold to Inter only a few weeks ago. The January signings, C. Perez instead of Politano, the unknown Ibañez, and a young kid called Villar, playing in the Spanish segunda division until the other day. Not to mention the disappeared Mr. Kalinic.
Fonseca and Petrachi are hostage to each other, no money to spend, so need to rely on young fellas or recall B. Peres from Brazil. Let alone the mysterious injuries of J. Pastore and co. The coach seem resigned, his comments to the press are a clear examples he’s trying but cannot find solutions.
There’s an obvious gap between the coach and sporting director. No one else from the club showing their face at Trigoria. Missing important figures and their presence. Too casual is the behaviour, players oblivious to what is happening, no concern we have lost against all minnow teams, that losing to Atalanta today is perfecly fine. As it was in previous weeks. We have dismantled a team. Yet, these are the questions that nobody seem to know how to answer. No one. God bless. Forza Roma.
