1-0 Cagliari. WOW.
That didn't take long...Cagliari scores
Not a good start. 1-0 down and Roma need this win pretty badly.
Cagliari score early, but it's okay because this game will probably have a dozen goals.
Goal cagliari. Ugh
Roma's attack looks awful to me lately (even with the 3 goals last game) while their defense looks as bad as ever.
The heat is on Zeman. I read in the espn preview that Sabattini is making noises about Zeman's post up for review. I know DCUroma thinks Sab is the one who should be facing the fire.
I don't know how you can be so thin at defense and blame the coach.
lamela has had a couple really nice runs up the middle, he good.
osvaldo nice bike, goes wide. 23'
Roma fans are really whistling their team a lot tonight for every error.
Why didn't Roma put the ball out of play....
Tachtsidis must not be too popular with his teammates, as both Florenzi and Totti refuse to put the ball out of play when he's rolling around in pain.
Roma probably should have been given a PK for the challenge on him.
LOL at Roma playing on while Tachtsidis is down in the box.
Looks like Taxi should have had a PK from the replay.
let me take that back, lamela VERY good.
Totti hammers in a free kick.
This Dodo guy plays like his hair is on fire.
Wow. He fooled both the wall and the keeper with that one, sneaking it near post
Bradley is played into a pocket of space in the attacking 3rd, except the ball never reaches him since it hits the ref. The fans expressed their displeasure with the ref.
Pretty solid first half by MB. Roma had a lot of possession but not many chances. I'd like to see Torosidis given a shot. Osvaldo hasn't done much, too bad they don't have many options to put up front.
