Italian Serie A News, Results, Analysis and Features on Football Soccer

Episode 21, time to count the votes and fine tune the tuning in the Capital. Our Roman panel Greg, Alex, and Julian glance (definitely not romance) over 2010-2011 season for their beloved Roma.  Topics include:

  • The overall crappiness of Roma’s year
  • Games of the season- both best and worst, in Serie A and in Europe
  • Greg cheating on nearly every question
  • Some consensus, some disagreements, lots of love
  • Reminiscing about the game that cost Claudio Ranieri his job, Nico Burdisso trying to kill a man, the Champions’ League “run”, Francesco Totti vs Ranieri, and a whole lot more.
  • Julian completely forgetting games against Inter and amazing records
  • Vincenzo Montella vs Claudio Ranieri: who was better?
  • Some major milestones were fondly glanced upon. Chief amongst them: Il Capitano reaching Roberto Baggio.
  • Alex messing up the format
  • Grade of the season: universally poor. Really really poor.
  • Rodrigo Taddei’s raison d’etre: The Roma Goran Pandev
  • Best and worst players of the season- both overall and by position- including Daniele De Rossi in a category you might not expect
  • Sergio’s tears, Nico’s reliability, Simone Loria’s immense scoring record, and the rest of the notable incidents… that they could remember. Hey, they tried.
  • A bit of fantacalcio, including Poach a Palermo Starlet ™ and pick any player that would improve the squad.
  • Twitter questions- Totti’s hair as a song and more musings.
  • Francesco Totti. That’s really all one has to say, isn’t it?
