Ready to begin again. The Serie A resumes, Roma resumes. New tactician, new game play, new players. New directors for a new football idea. Summer friendlies, good performance and others not so good; Some regrets for those who left, some doubts about some newcomers and the usual controversies and pre-championship reflections. But above all, it starts without Totti in the field. This is a new Roma team, and not just because the Captain is no longer at the helm after 25 years. Besides, he still here with us, alongside Eusebio and Monchi. We trust Radja Nainggolan to be able to take the team in hand with Daniele De Rossi, our new Captain.
It is still an experimental Roma, without some key players, yes, but we expect another one or two to complete the team. At least, numerically we are in a better position than last year. But only the field will tell if we are stronger and more competitive. We will certainly not make any calculations or make hasty judgments based only on friendly matches. We remember that in 1983 Roma were defeated by third division Trento for 3-0, and then they went on to conquer the second scudetto for this club. This is to say that summer football counts zero and that to give final judgments we will have to wait. So, as far as we are concerned, no prior judgment, we give the right time to Di Francesco, even though the Roma crowd do not wait.
Tomorrow we begin with Atalanta-Roma. Juve and Napoli have already won and took 3 points. The important thing is to start well, because if the results did not come right then it would be hard to keep calm. Last but not least, our Club, we restart as well, we have unveiled a new website with so many features and services for our members. And we also proud to continue our beautiful collaboration with Carlo Zampa and Popolo Giallorosso with this space at the service of our English-speaking readers. We continue to grow together. Go on Roma.
