The Last Roman – Part 2: League Struggles | @FMCM_FC


Tuesday is Nath day and his attempts to nurture a young Francesco Totti. Can he steady the ship?

Hello and welcome back to Rome as we attempt to win as many trophies as possible with the Legend that is Francesco Totti. In our first update we didn’t make a great start winning only 2 of our opening 8 league games. We did qualify for the Coppa Italia 3rd round and we did qualify for the World Cup with Italy so it wasn’t a total disaster.

The last thing we need whilst on a really bad run is the Rome derby and as expected we wilt in the last 5 minutes. Boksic and Salas score in the 87th and 89th minute to see us off.

A superb hattrick from Del Vecchio sees of Serie B Reggiana. A much needed win for us as we move into the 4th round.

We absolutely steal a point against top of the table Milan. Kluivert opens the scoring with a screamer. 5 minutes before half time Balbo marks his return with a headed goal. Chimenti then brings down Kluivert in the box and is sent off. Konsel comes on and saves the penalty though. The rest of the game is Milan battering us but somehow we hang on.

A precious win in the league and new boy Mahlas has a blinder. He opens the scoring before setting up Conti to make it 2-0. Huber gets one back just before half time. Totti ends his goal drought before Giunta makes it a nervy finish but win come away with all 3 points.

Draws really aren’t good enough anymore. Amoroso gives Udinese the lead after some shocking defending. The Udinese defence return the favour though and allow Mahlas to level the scores and that’s how it stays.

Absolute garbage again. Debut goal for Roll is the only glimmer of good for us in this one.

Ravenna are in Serie B and they batter us! They deservedly lead until the 67th minute when Totti spares our blushes and grabs an away goal.

Another late collapse. Losing the will with this already.

I honestly don’t know where the next win is coming from. We are so so bad at the moment. At least Gautieri turned up today.

I really feel sorry for Ravenna. They have 2 goals chalked off which would have seen them through. A blissful win for us though as a break from our league form.

We can’t even beat bottom of the league!! Not even close to being average at the moment.

That’s it for this update. Let’s check out the league table.

We are in survival mode already. We can’t buy a win at the moment. Our only tiny bit of joy has been our Cup run.

The goals have dropped off for Totti but still a high average. Join me next time to see if we can somehow get some wins on the board.
