    You know it's bad when Totti leaves.

    haha did you read the things that he said? You should take a look, if not.

    Didn't come as any surprise to me, but perhaps those that don't follow the club closely will find it interesting.

    I did read the comments. He's absolutely right and I don't blame him at all for saying what was needed to be said.

    I love how he said "I don't want to name names", but (paraphrasing) said "EDF plays a 4-3-3 and one guy had a thousand injuries... I would have signed the guy from Ajax."

    Blatant shot at Pastore, who I've never been a fan of, and was a disaster this season. Loved it.

    Why Monchi didn't sign Ziyech is beyond me.

    I never understood the Pastore signing.
    Totti should have slapped out every single board member, forehand to backhand.

    This is from the Press Conference. It says a lot.

    Enrico Lucci has arrived to give his contribution, usually as a prankster and TV host who breaks in to other conferences.



    *let's not mess about here, he means Franco Baldini*

    Oh yeah, it's a mess, make no mistake about it.

    Just a disaster last 12 months. Outside of Fonseca, I don't think Pallotta has done much right.

    We still don't even have a Director of Football yet...lol.

    What's he referencing when he talked about "the Americans"? And when he talks about "removing Romans from Roma, is he talking about players on the pitch or decision makers in the board room?

    Oh god, where to begin?

    He's talking about Pallotta being an American who bought the club from the Sensi's who were Roman through and through.

    Roma's always had a tradition of having players from Rome at the club on the pitch and off it.

    Here's just a snippet of what the ex-owner said today:

    Sensi: 'My father's Roma ruined' | Football Italia

    Essentially, most people felt De Rossi was unrightfully kicked out of the club at the end of this season, and now Rome's other son Totti has left because of disagreements with the American Pallotta.

    Italy's rife with xenophobic undertones (or over) and Roma might be the one of the worst for it. Pallotta's been treated as an outsider from day 1, and a large portion of the fanbase feel he's been stripping away the Roma they knew and loved piece by piece. They don't think he actually cares about the club the way the Sensi's did. Which, is probably true. He's almost never in Rome, and has been at war with the curva/ultras pretty much from the start.

    I could go into further detail if you're interested. It's a pretty interesting club and always filled with drama.

    Well the Spain job is open...

    Luis Enrique has stepped down do to “personal reasons” and he hasn’t managed the team for their last three games. Assistant coach Robert Moreno will take over

    I never thought I'd actually see Sarri in a suit and tie.

    I like Sarri a lot. I don't have any particular disposition toward Juventus so it wouldn't bother me if he rejeuvenates (relative term) that squad to an extent. I think Ronaldo - Dybala - Costa/Berna is going to be fire next season. Dybala especially is going to benefit the most from Sarri's tactics, IMO.

    I fully agree with you. I am quite excited, where there are quite a lot of Juve fans having a melt down. If he could a nobody in Mertens in a 34 goal scorer and Higauin into 38 goal scorer I am excited to see what can do with Dybala.

    Mertens and Higuaín were both very good players before Sarri, but they definitely benefited from his system and fit into it very well.

    Will sarri play Dybala as a 9 though? How would he fair with Ronaldo still? I’m skeptical, still hoping he leaves

    I'm curious as to what Sarri can do with Bernadeschi, who's stagnated a lil bit since leaving La Viola.
