It’s not about scaling. Absolutely. We just “normalized”. These were the key games to better understand. At least we know now. Roma must think about finishing fourth, the goal set at the beginning of the season. And it won’t be easy either, we will have to fight to get to the Champions League.
The problem is that the excellent start and the third place close to the top had stirred up some of the fans. Scudetto, see you at Circus Maximus and so on. Dreaming is beautiful, dreaming is lawful, for heaven’s sake. But we need more balance with judgments. It’s easy to get carried away. Of this period every year Roma goes the same way, it collapses, deflates, disappears and makes awful displays . Every year the managers, coaches and players change but it’s always the same score. In the league, like in the Italian Cup or the Europa League.
Maybe now that’s not the case, we’re still in the running and nothing is lost. But this defeat gave us a very hard blow, which no one expected, so it hurts, very badly. The performance of our team was disgraceful. Everyone, no one excluded. Sufficiency, presumption and no fighting. So we lost. Lazio, on the other hand, put a lot of verve on it, on and off the pitch. Fonseca has got everything wrong and is the first to be responsible, but then it must also be said that so far Roma have had a good run for what we are, apart from the big blows, and even if the points are the same as last year.
But it’s time to clarify, once and for all. Roma have a good team in the starting 11, but not a squad up to the level to make the leap in quality. No more exaltation of certain players after only a few good games. This is our great limitation. They have to prove it over time, with continuity . But everything is fine, now let’s turn the page, we hope to get up immediately with a double encounter with Spezia, cup and league, a difficult team but that you must always beat, because we are Roma!
Then we win and smile again but we don’t immediately start over with the same old story and exaltation. Keep calm and cool. Our goal is fourth place and let’s play it for the Coppa Italia and Europa League. You can lose but with honour, as long as you give everything. So, head down and pedal. Speak little, close your social media networks, be professional, you are all well paid and privileged. We ask for commitment and sacrifice for this jersey. With humility and respect. It doesn’t take much. Thanks.
