Hello! Here’s Nathan with the first blog of the week. Incidentally if you want to be our Monday person do get in touch…
Hello, hello and welcome back to Rome. We have 10 league games to seal survival and a Coppa Italia Semi Final 2ng leg with a 2-0 lead from the 1st Leg. Let’s get straight into it.
We are into the Coppa Italia final! Aldair was phenomenal here. Totti with a goal before half time to take it away from Parma. Bjorn grabs his 1st goal for the club to send us on our way.
A preview of the Coppa Italia final and if we can do this i’ll be happy. The goal comes from a Totti freekick which Bjorn heads onto the bar and Totti is the man who taps in the rebound. A clean sheet is so so rare and stunning to see.
That’s a joke!
Really entertaining game with both teams going for it in the derby. The first half is goalless but Lazio score straight from the second half kickoff. We up the pressure and find an equaliser thanks to Mahlas.
We just aren’t at the same level as the top teams in this league and this game shows it. Giving a penalty away in the opening 10 minutes rather set the tone.
Glad to see the back of Parma and they probably feel the same about us. Melli opens the scoring after a strong opening 20 minutes from Parma. We stay in the game though and get rewarded late on with a wonder goal from Leal.
Our finishing was terrible here today unlike Hubner who was super clinical. Brescia are below us so this is a really bad result.
Another spectacular second half collapse. We are 2-0 up and cruising then Amoroso scores a hattrick in 13 minutes to completely stun us. Luckily Totti has one final chance at the death and takes it to rescue the point.
1st leg of the Coppa Italia final and we draw away from home. We should really have won this. We had so many shots but again are finishing wasn’t there.
We need to stop losing to the teams around us. Piacenza are just below us so will now probably over take us. It’s another disappointing collapse in the last 10 minutes.
Fantastic win and performance. Roll gives us a deserved lead and Mahlas doubles it before half time. Rossitto gets one back early in the second half but we hang on.
We lose the Coppa Italia Final. No words needed as the score line speaks for itself.
This one should keep us in Serie A. Thomas Roll with a well taken goal to take the win.
A win to finish the season. Rana was brilliant. He sets up Totti for the opener before putting us 2-0 up before half time.
That’s it then for season 1 with Roma. Let’s have a look at the final table.
We manage to scrap our way to 12th. only 8 wins is appalling. We need to turn those draws into wins. We finish 10 points above relegation so it’s comfortable in the end.
Average Ratings are average across the board really.
Goals was a real issue and you can see that here. Disappointed that Totti didn’t make it to 20 goals.
Good assist rerun for Totti.
So that’s it for Roma but what of Italy? Join me next week for a World Cup special as we guide Totti and Italy through the 98 World Cup.
