They spent over 100m in just 2 players, in total they are closer to 200.

Lukaku 65m
Barella 45m
Sensi 30m
Lazaro 22m
...

Plus freebies like Godin, Alexis and signing Conte.

Way in the "no excuses" territory

United on the other hand made sure to stay comfortably in their safe space of "excuses" territory Laughing

Chris Smalling on loan to Roma apparently Shocked


more retarded decision making from the board and ole

this is probably the worst transfer window i've ever seen

ship out rojo, bailly or jones to some scrub team

Smalling still comfortably better than all of those injury prone muppets


Yea totally against this decision.
Smalling is still a reliable option especially against smaller teams. I am guessing Ole and his crew is taking this ‘play out from the back’ attribute far too seriously. I mean granted our three wheelchair amigos are better than Smalling in that regard, but as a pure defender, the guy is on a different level to those idiots. It is always nice to have a player like Smalling as a backup choice especially at times to close out games and stuff. Also the guy’s a professional. So cant explain why he is being pushed out like this.

Shocking news if true and not just due to the minimal export of English players to Serie A. Although on that note each time it does happen its usually met with excitement from Joe Hart to even Micah Richards.

Always like Smalling even if he failed to live up to his early promise after two very good seasons in United under SAF and genuinely thought he would be a star.

For Roma given their current defensive options and potential buys he is well above any of them including a mentally weak Rugani and should slot in well especially to cancel out aerial threats given his height.

I hope to see it happen.

What I like best about this move is that it's low risk for us and a good opportunity for Smalling to jumpstart his career and get back into the convo as a starting CB. Fonseca made it clear that he needs a strong, fast defender who can read the game well. Smalling may not be the absolute best in that regard, but he's probably the best of who's available. If there was ever a club to demonstrate that you know how to defend, it's here where our current starting 2 CBs barely make up 1 decent one.

If he stays fit and settles quickly, this works out for everyone.

What is the ground behind it? Do you see it happening or is it typical shock-value Italian press jumping the gun.

I'm reading about it on RomaPress, who are using Sky Italia as their source:

Apparently the deal was brokered by the same 2 guys who got Alexis to Inter, Tiziano Pasquali and Giulio Meozzi. Never heard of either them, but I suppose that's not too strange these days with deals like this. Both English and Italian sources are reporting the same stuff though so that lends a lot of credence to this being real. Smalling has apparently already agreed to the move and is expected to arrive in Rome tomorrow for his medical.

I find English players coming to La Liga but more so Serie A so exciting for some reason.

Not just due to its rarity but to see how they would adapt from such a different climate that does not just involve the weather but football along with the series of doubts that come along with this, but contrasted with the always welcome warmth of Italian fans to them.

Coaches on the other hand never seem to prefer the English imports since they always seem to be frozen out.

Recent imports haven't put in the best impressions but Smalling will be different I predict and this is just the move to restart what has been some passive series of seasons in United where his confidence has not recovered.

Perfect man to replace Fazio who is slower than a cruise ship, and who is basically the same height as him.

Yup,

Tiziano Pasquali is one of the intermediaries who led the talks that brought Chris Smalling to Roma. Today, he spoke to TeleRadioStereo about the deal.


“I am Roman and Romanista despite living abroad. The operation lasted 24 hours, we spoke with Petrachi and from that moment, we carried on the negotiation and looked to find the agreement with Manchester United. It was a flash deal”.

“We did everything with respect to Roma, who cooperated in the best way possible, and we managed to close the operation. Smalling intends to take back his position in the national team, he joins with great desire. He knows Dzeko and Kolarov, who told him about Roma and its worth”.

Smalling has had periods where he's been very good at ManU, if he can discover some of that form he should do well for Roma.

Hopefully Smalling erases previous English impressions and succeeds with Roma if not stays.

Should be interesting to see and hope he slots in right away.

Would have been Rio Ferdinand level had SAF not retired.

I still suffer for SAF every day, I loved that man. Reminds me of my grandma.
