Rubrica in inglese gestita dagli amici del Roma Club Dublino
We are at the epilogue. The arrival of Mourinho has brought back the enthusiasm of the fans, a hint of an almost epochal change. The last game at Spezia, on the other hand, did not enthuse anyone, a symbol of a season that had started badly in the league and ended worse. Apart from Europa League. A poor Roma display lacking ideas.
Farewell to Fonseca, an honest technician, at times even brilliant but definitely alone and in confusion. Thanks to Petrachi’s farewell, many injuries, but also misunderstandings, incredible mistakes but above all disappointment and lack of certain elements, a team that is not very team, intermittent, fluctuating and inconclusive.
Too little malice and desire to fight. Or maybe they just gave it their all but weren’t up to par. Certainly a middle ground between all that I have mentioned. The fact is that now we really start again, we need another gear, we need a bad and ugly Roma. We need a proud, indomitable, little head, playing with poisoned teeth, and always respecting itself. Then in football you can win or lose. But now we need to find the right spirit and the right players, for a more combative football.
The task of the Special One is to bring new characters to find the right stimuli. The bar is raised, but also the competition, from Juve Allegri-remake, to the Italian champions without his old leader but with an Inzaghi who leaves the Lazio side perhaps to Sarri or Sinisa.
Then Gattuso to Fiore and the old Spalletti in the shadow of Vesuvius. Then Juric in Turin, Venezia promoted after 20 years and so on. In short, Serie A changes face, the pandemic is slowing down, more vaccines, more spectators back to stadiums. A wish for the restart in August. But first the Azzurri at the European Championships. Everything starts from Rome. Always Forza Roma!
