Let’s start from where we stopped. From that wet farewell of Daniele De Rossi, the hugs with Totti and Ranieri that sanctioned the end of an era.
Without our Captains, then we went on to the Year Zero of Petrachi, with the arrival of Fonseca to witness the Edin Dzeko’s summer soap opera. When in the end we seemed getting back our confidence, here comes the blow that you don’t expect.
Roma begins fast and sparkling, torpedoes that predict a dazzling start. Instead we are then dampened by a series of negative episodes that opens a trail of questions.
The team runs out of gas too early, suffers an ordinary Genoa team and pays duty for defensive cockups. Three times upfront was not enough to bag the three points. So much disappointment at the end of the match.
The feeling remains the same. Roma lacks some solid players behind, in a game system that tries to push the opposition with high pressing and ball possession. Nothing new in this regard. Trouble is when you lose the ball.
Roma needs some quality players there, fast and reactive. Some people are casting doubts about the current personnel. Petrachi must act he has not yet satisfied the coach’s requests because he is looking for last-minute deals.
Perhaps these issues had to be straightened out first, knowing the technician’s profile requests. With Perotti out long term and Schick on his way too you will need to close deals within the next 48 hours. Florenzi could move in place of Perotti while Kalinic could be Dzeko’s new partner.
Doubt remains in defense. Who do we take now? Rugani? Lovren? But let’s hurry, Sunday comes the Derby and you can’t get it wrong. Need courage. Daje Roma!
