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

In a season plagued by adversity Roma have for once a modicum of clarity; they simply need to win their last two league games while hoping Udinese and Lazio falter. Sadly however, that’s as clear as Roma’s outlook becomes as a myriad of complexities refuse to go away. On paper, Saturday night’s stalemate against the now champions AC Milan was highly respectable, but the point and clean sheet however, merely papered over a number of cracks. Mirko Vucinic cut a [...]

Roma have long been a club to polarise opinions, seldom does one encounter a fair-weather Giallorosso fan or indeed an ambivalent foe – you’re either fervently for or against. Then, within Roma’s very own fan base there exists that very same dynamic - deeply passionate tifosi who bicker amongst themselves, often furiously, in a bid to impose a personal vision of all things i lupi. Today, Roma is a maelstrom of madness. From the magnificence of Er Pupone to the [...]

For Roma fans, it was very much a case of ‘grazie a tutti’ following last weekend’s Serie A results. Having eased past Chievo in the weekend’s opening clash, Roma subsequently witnessed their fellow Champions League protagonists drop points as Good Friday gave way to an even better weekend. Suddenly, a highly beneficial weekend has put a different complexion on the table and once again thoughts turn to the magical fourth place quest. The prevailing air of positivity is now embellished [...]

The ink is barely dry, and already the size of the task awaiting Roma’s new owner is emphatically clear. Rather than welcome Di Benedetto with successive home wins, the Giallorossi succumbed to league and cup defeats, scuppering any hopes of a honeymoon period for the American regime. Having triumphed against the odds in Udine, the visit of an ailing Palermo side appeared to be an attractive proposition, the ideal fixture to commemorate a momentous new era. Fittingly, an early penalty [...]

Roma’s rollercoaster rattles on. Ascending from the depths of last week’s Juventus misery; the Giallaorossi emerged to clinch a vital three points against an in-form Udinese – with ‘il capitano’ bagging two ‘typically Totti’ strikes to keep Roma’s ‘fourth-place quest’ alive. Saturday’s trip to Udine was fraught with danger. Defeat to Juve the previous weekend left the Bianconeri breathing down Roma’s neck, and a loss to Guidolin’s in-form Zebrette would have made a fourth place finish nigh on impossible. Having [...]

Saturday’s match between Udinese and Roma pitted two kindred spirits against each other. Both Librans; the attributes of Francesco Totti and Antonio Di Natale strike a synergistic balance which, amongst the second-half mayhem, was undoubtedly lost upon the Friuli onlookers – therefore, Serie A Weekly reflects gazes upon these stars, most definitely aligned. Just a year separates Totti and Di Natale, and despite being in the autumn of their careers, both remain significant Serie A forces. Despite a sluggish start [...]
