Roma President James Pallotta released a statement assuring they “are not expecting any substantial delays” to the Stadio della Roma project even after nine arrests.

This morning, nine people were detained “in connection with an investigation into aspects of the Tor di Valle project,” including contractor Luca Parnasi, but none of them are current Roma employees.

“AS Roma president Jim Pallotta is confident the Stadio della Roma project will move forward without issue, despite events on Wednesday morning,” read a statement.

“We’re saddened and dismayed by today’s allegations and arrests. As the prosecutor categorically stated earlier, AS Roma has nothing to do with this.

“Also, contrary to what was reported in some places, the arrests do not involve the stadium contractor for Stadio della Roma and are actually nothing to do with the construction of the stadium or the entertainment complex.

“Now we fully expect to move forward with the project and we are not expecting any substantial delays.”

However, the Codacons – a consumer protection agency – called for the immediate suspension of the project.

Prosecutor Paolo Ielo confirmed in a Press conference that “Roma have nothing to do with it, the systematic corruption continues within and around the Parnasi group.

“The charges are associating to commit a crime, traffic of influence, corruption and illicit financing. There is money circulating and non-existent billing. There is a new type of bribe: hiring family members or friends.

“(Former assessor and regional councillor) Michele Civita was promised that his son would be hired by the Parnasi group, in one of Palozzi’s businesses.”

Sky Sport Italia and Perform have won the TV rights to Serie A for 2018-21 for €973m per year after Mediaset pulled out.

The bidding war had to resume after Mediapro saw their initial victory wiped out on appeal due to anti-trust laws.

Mediaset Premium had also been in talks for the rights today, but pulled out after the first round of bids.

“The rights have been assigned to Sky and Perform, while Mediaset did not present an offer,” confirmed Genoa President Enrico Preziosi.

“The offers were frankly better than we expected them to be. It was a difficult day, all negotiations are fraught, but at the end we all resolved it.”

The final figure is slightly below the target of €1.05bn, but a slight increase on the previous three years at €943m.

It looks as if the two companies will work together to ensure fans don’t need to purchase two different pay-per-view broadcaster contracts.

There are also assurances that the legendary programme 90’ Minuto, the first to show highlights of Sunday games on free-to-air TV, won’t have to be postponed to the evening.

I saw it on tv.
No dramma this year but it was a surreal match. Similar to when European teams play Intercontinental Cup in South America Laughing

Fights since the beginning, neurotic atmosphere .. 1st half finishes 0-0.
At the beginning of 1st half, Frosinone scores a fantastic goal.
Since that moment, it is even less football match than before.

Complete chaos on pitch ,  the referee first awarded a free kick on the edge of the box, then changed it to a Palermo penalty and after much arguing from the two teams switched his decision back to a free kick again.
Surreal.

But this is not over.

https://twitter.com/delinquentweet/status/1008084687510736897
Scenes  never seen on some levels :
Frosinone players on the touchline repeatedly have thrown spare footballs on to the pitch in order to break up the play and waste time.
Shocked

To pull this off : Frosinone scores 2-0 on last minute, Frosinone fans invade the pitch to celebrate when 11 seconds were missing, the match finish so without the referee's whistle


It seemed Pub League .... but it was Serie B.

Palermo lodged an appeal to freeze Frosinone’s promotion.

Samp will be looking pretty South American rather soon then. That's a good club for him to do his work.

Excellent, thought provoking piece on the end of romanticism at Roma. Perfectly captures the direction the club is going in post-Totti.

Great article. I came over the calcio offside site the same time I discovered the goal forums. Even though the Inter section have changed a lot, it's still one of the best calcio sites I like to lurk.

Ps. I'm thinking Zaniolo will become a world beater, or at least that's his potential and Monchi sees it. No way Radja even though 30 is worth 24 + Santon and a kid Laughing

Rob's gf ??

Brown hair and brown eyes is my favourite combo, can't understand but she seems to know football on top of that. Or at least, she knows enough to have an opinion. Sadly we can never get along.

I think Beppe got this. The purple rats are down to earth and willing to negotiate. After Berna deal it seems that they are willing to get Pjaca for around 25m with a recompra set at no more than 35m. Plus apparently Beppe wants to have an option for Chiesa in future.
Simeone would be great as a supersub but probably the great man has smth in mind for him aswell.

Simeone for what ?
Pjaca'd be fantastic signing for Fiorentina tbh if he is fit
They have also signed GK from Tolosa, Lafont. I haven't idea how he is , but it is hard to make worse than Sportiello/Dragowski

Lafont is regarded as one of the most talented young keepers. Pjaca will do great there if fit. Looks like they are recovering after last years exodus of players.
We gave them a hand to raise some money from Bernardeschi. Glad they are still grateful and ready to give a chance to our unlukcy flops.

Hell of an Interview with Sabatini. Some incendiary stuff in here:

Spoiler:
Sabatini on Roma:

“I’m trying to cure myself of the Roma disease that I’ve carried around with me. Roma isn’t a team, it’s a part of your soul. It’s love and venom. It’s the lung I lost, to not even talk about what else I lost to that club. It’s a rollercoaster of emotions.”

Sabatini on retiring after Roma:


“When I said I’d retire after Roma, I really believed it at the time. Roma has that effect on you. After that I worked for Suning, not for Inter. Then I came back to reality. Only now after two years can I speak on Roma with a certain amount of detachment.”

Sabatini on returning to Roma:

“Never, it would be impossible. Not to mention it would be a mistake.”

Sabatini on Baldissoni:

“He’s a well-meaning guy but ineffective. He has a pure kind of intelligence. He’s more analytical than streetwise. He’s great at putting things in order but hard to get a hold of. His one weakness is he’s lived a perfect life. I always tell him: ‘How much do you suffer under this boss you have?’”

Sabatini on Spalletti:

“He’s a generous man unlike many. It’s impossible to pay him back for everything he puts in, which is rare in a coach. His behaviour is often down to defending himself against his own fears ahead of time, and some complexes that don’t give him an easy life. But he’s a top coach and a great person.”

Sabatini on Monchi:

“We’ve very different. He has a method, I don’t. Let’s say he’s more sensitive to catering to the benevolence of others. But I have to say he has always publicly recognized my work.”

Sabatini on Kolarov:

“He’s amazed me. I wasn’t expecting to find that same desire to run up and down the wings. He’s an invicible warrior like Strootman.”

Sabatini on Strootman:

“I’d never get rid of him. Strootman is my hero and he always will be, because he plays football for the whole week and not just on Sundays.”

Sabatini on saying Pastore can’t handle competition:

“I’m an agent provocateur. Pastore is like my son and I’ll tell him what I want. In his first year in Paris he did unstoppable things, then he slowed down. He knows it too, and I told him this in private. But he’s a genius of football and has that Argentinian pride. At Roma he will entertain you.”

Sabatini on Ricky Massara:

“I definitely think the world of him. He’s a problem-solver, intelligent and loyal like few others. I pushed him to go back to Roma because I didn’t want him to get typecast by staying around me. And Ricky has Roma under his skin like me.”

Sabatini on Nainggolan:

“After his sale, I don’t feel like it’s my Roma anymore. It was right to change this much, every cycle has an end and you have to know when ahead of time. There are two explanations behind Nainggolan’s sale. The first is the 38 million banked before 30th June, of which 14 million was paid back through Santon and Zaniolo. The second is that Roma had enough. They couldn’t put up with supporting his excesses anymore. Spalletti, on the other hand, controls him well enough. Spalletti’s method was to make Nainggolan sleep with him at Trigoria. Each of them in their own separate bedroom, with the door open between them. Spalletti is a genius when handling these things. For someone like Radja I wish him well, he’s a kid that always fascinates you. I think he will give the best of himself to Inter and show people things they weren’t expecting. He’s a player that works off his nervous energy, not his physique.”

Sabatini on Roma’s mercato so far:

“I think the world of Kluivert. That was a big deal. So was getting in the adopted Frenchman who will play behind him. I think they will sell Alisson to Chelsea for 70 million. Look, at that price goalkeepers can get sold. Otherwise you’d have to be in a position to offer a contract extension at 5 or 6 million per season and for me, Roma isn’t in a position to do that.”

Sabatini on De Rossi:

“A great soul. One who would cut off his arm for Roma.”

Sabatini on Totti:

“I wish him well. He’s a intangible monolith of Rome. If you touch him you’re dead. It’s not his fault. Already at twenty years old, everyone taught him to think: ‘Rome is me.’ He’s a fun guy and an immeasurable champion. I’ve seen him do unprecedented things on the pitch.”

Sabatini on his best signing:

“Marquinhos at 18 years old. Signing him and then selling him on that fast. Credit to Zeman too, who had the courage to play him.”

Sabatini on whether his two biggest ‘instinct-signing’ fails are Iturbe and Gerson:

“Gerson showed some important signs but he’s a lazy player. He still hasn’t understood he has to make the most of his enormous physical advantage. He never takes on his man. He gets too satisfied with himself. I tell him to play more all the time. One time I wrote to him: ‘You’re going to give me runs up the pitch with the ball but then you’re going to dribble past your man just every once in a while?’

Iturbe had a problem that we choose to hide. He started off very strong with Roma. Then he probably ruptured his cruciate ligament and we didn’t send him to surgery. We chose instead to send him to therapy to recover naturally and from that point he wasn’t himself anymore.”

Sabatini on Stekelenburg:

“We were unlucky with him. He’s a great goalkeeper but very self-entitled. A Dutchman with frail personality and a big disappointment. Something that Alisson isn’t. But let’s not also forget the kick in the head that he took from Lucio at the San Siro. After that he lost confidence.”

Sabatini on Allegri:

“The other day I threatened him: ‘It’s as if you’re accusing me of being a director who tries hard but has never won anything. I’ll go get the contract you signed with Roma from my desk right now.’ But he’s had a big hand in the victories at Juventus, he’s a great coach and a fine strategist. One time he told me: ‘I’ve got weaknesses but I know how to identify players.’ That’s true. Just look at Pjanic at regista.”

Sabatini on Rudi Garcia:

“I wish him well. The first year together was like walking on water but by the third year it was like his head was lost under the water. With Rudi, the president was rude. There was no need to knock a man down when he’s brought you Champions League qualification for two years in a row.”

Sabatini on Pallotta:

“He’s an insecure man. We’ll only remember the denials from him.”

Sabatini on Di Francesco:

“I like how he’s managed the Roma squad. He’s given room and chances to everyone, and then he reached a semi-final of the Champions League and almost a final. He’s made the Romans proud after such a long time.”

Sabatini on finding himself supporting Roma in the Champions League:

“I didn’t surprise myself. I support Roma without shame.”

The bits about Iturbe, Gerson, Allegri and Nainggolan are quite interesting.
