Here we go again. From Josè Mourinho and the whole team who gave us that trophy that had been missing for too long. An immense joy that the Romanisti people deserved. We have said it here repeatedly throughout the year, even when things weren’t going very well, even when someone called upon people like Italian, Dionisi or De Zerbi, not understanding that in Rome you only win with the winners.
History tells it. The Special One has accomplished a feat, immediately hitting the center in the first year, with a short and deficient team. And besides, the owners, with their seriousness and intelligence, have turned the club upside down in less than two years, in all sectors. They didn’t miss a beat, without saying a word. Facts and not words. A three-year project that is preparing to accelerate. This year we are already aiming higher, with an expanded squad, targeted purchases and great champions.
Roma is already a great team on paper, the gap with the top four seems to be almost filled but it is clear that now the field will have to confirm all this. The important thing is to stay up there to compete, the minimum goal is fourth place and to go to the bottom both in the Coppa Italia and in the Europa Legue. The winning mentality is acquired in this way, with victories, hunger and ambition. But also with the right and strong players. Mourinho’s presence brought about all of this. People like Dybala, Wjinaldum and Matic and Abraham would never have come here without Josè.
Now there is also a great leader like Pellegrini and all the other missing pieces. Not forgetting another great purchase, potentially the strongest player, Nico Zaniolo. There is a lot of enthusiasm, rightly so. And it is not the usual “Scudetto of August”. The difference with the last few years is that now there is a strong coach, club and team. All very similar to about twenty years ago. The four competitors are perhaps still a little bit above for their position and tradition, but this Rome can now compete with all of them. Without fear.
Roma are now in the lead after four games tied with Atalanta. A positive fact that brings enthusiasm and conviction, even if at the moment it matters little, with a tangle of teams in a handkerchief with a few points of distance. It is played match by match, starting from the next match against Udinese you will need a proof of maturity. The important thing is to remain calm and cohesive in the group, to continue on this path, now even more so with the new reinforcements arrived. Gallo Belotti already a fan favorite, and Mady Camara, the plunger to replace Gini Wjinaldum. Hoping not to run into other injuries, the real scourge of this period, with Zaniolo, El Sharaawy and Kumbulla now stopped in the pits.
Mourinho has a complete team, the icing on the cake would have been the defender but at this point he goes on like this until January, with Solbakken already booked for the attack. It is a Rome that makes you dream but always down to earth, we have already won the Scudetto in August several times over the years, the championship is long and the state of form changes. There will be ups and downs, you need to stay attached to the leading train until the World Cup in november-december, then grind it from January onwards. Calm and Forza Roma!
