Super Roma. Another dominant display to dispatch Parma with ease. 45 mins was enough to seal victory. It could have been 4 or 5 nil. Mkyitaryan was superb, close to another hattrick. Without Dzeko and Smalling subs like Mayoral and Villar were able to deliver. Fonseca is getting things right. The players look focused, the team is playing like a team. The experience of Pedro is key, his winning mentality, many around around him feel more confident. We’re getting closer to the top. It’s a strange championship, wide open, anything is possible.
Dan and Ryan Friedkin, ever-present at the Stadio Olimpico, are also behind this new fresh start. Smart approach. Low profile, working underground. Little things but well appreciated. Like wearing the old crest. Meaning they are adamant to put things right, unite the fans first, get their backing. They were meant to stay only for a couple of weeks, they will stay right until Christmas. Well done.
Roma next challenge is the game at Napoli. Tough because they have lost badly to Milan. If they were problems with their coach Gattuso now it is a tinderbox. The death of Diego Armando Maradona means Napoli is in mourning, the game will be very emotional one, for the city, for football. In the meantime, we face Cluj away in Romania for Europa League, qualification not in danger, our priority is not to lose any players at this stage. Daje Roma.
