On paper Roma have the easiest schedule.
Anyway it is easy to say it, Roman clubs are going  to play CL next year
Juve avatar for a month if we get the miracle to go in Champions League


Just checked you're right. Juventus is the only tough game out of their schedule, remaining games are teams Roma should put away easily so yeah, Roma have CL on lock.

So realistically CL race is mostly between Lazio and Inter. Won't be surprised if it comes down to the last day and Lazio give you 5 maggio nightmares again :coffee:

Roma winning CL before Juve... That'd virtually be the end of my internet career.

Cant and will never root for another Italian team to win CL ffs

Yeah we're not winning the CL Laughing. If today's result was a dream, that's an absolute fantasy. Stranger Things have literally not happened in this comp.

I would love to see Juve put up a good fight against Madrid though. They have a steeper hill the climb, but not impossible. As said in another thread, I'm a Juve fan tomorrow.

Juve have to win 3-0 to go to extra time. Very unlikely, but who knows.

Thanks brother.

If nothing else, I'm glad we got to see a proper match today from Roma and a great effort, and belief after a first leg quite similar to ours (except we added salt in the wound by having such a game at home instead)

Inspiring performance

Also justice for Monchi

Criticized for turning Roma into a supermarket but Roma under his tenure have made a semi in CL in what, like 3 decades ? Wasnt EDF his appointment ?

Monchi's work is just starting and hasn't affected Roma yet. We don't know if he will be good or not.

As of now, Karsdorp, Moreno, Defrel and Schick are either flops or irrelevant. Gonalons is ok. Under is promising.

I have not rated Schick personally, but today I saw my first true glimpse of why we paid 40 million for him. He didn't score, but he had himself a great game before being subbed off. The talent is certainly there. I'm not on the hype train yet, but this certainly turned my head in that direction.

As for the others, yeah they've all been colossal flops. Gonalons has been flat out bad. Not the player we though we had signed from Lyon. We must sign better depth players if we're to make these deep CL runs without giving up points in Serie A a more regular thing. If Monchi can do at least that while selling only one of our stars, I'll consider the summer market successful.

I truly respect what Monchi did at Sevilla and I know, given enough time, he can do the same at Roma. The problem is time though. There never seems to be enough of it for Roma coaches or sporting directors. Hopefully this CL campaign has given him much more runway to take off in the summer.

So Schick isn't all that ? Not even worth a shave ?
I remember he was a hot topic last summer in Juve section, seems like Roma took the bullet for us here. Me i always was on the other czeck's narrative: Jakub Jankto (lost track of him since)

Problem with Roma is while being a relevant club, they can never add "flesh around the bone" and maintain the same core for a long time. Always have to reinvent themselves year after year. Tight budget kills them more than any other team in Serie A.

Let's be honest, what happened today is not the result of Monchi's work, all of the credit goes to the players and indirectly to the man who signed most of them (hint: smoking) It was one of those days were the stars are aligned for the very unexpected to happen.

Roma President Pallotta: "I’d like to see Juventus do the same thing and win, it’s great for Italian football. As soon as we won, Andrea [Agnelli, Juventus President] sent me a text: ‘congratulations, wow, that’s amazing’. We’re kind of all in this together."

ok if you say so

She can say whatever she wants, as long as the damn stadium gets built. We need it badly.

Given she's Laziale, I can't help but think Lazio wouldn't have the same amount of problems getting a stadium built if Uncle Jimmy had bought them instead of us.

It seemed to me that the Inter players were drugged with downers and the Atalanta players were given speed. I just don't get it.

Howedes has played a good game so far

Looks solid as a rock and has delivered some decent crosses too going forward

But the left side has been awful tho, Matuidi in particular.
