All the suffering we've endured thus far in the campaign can finally pay off. A victory over the cheating scum Lazio will see us finish off our calendar of terror in style and put us in a good position to keep on Inter's trail until the winter break. I haven't heard anything new on Totti's injury, but I'm certain that he will do everything in his power to be there for this game. Should Totti return to action that I expect Spalletti to use this attacking formation: Totti Vucinic - Perrotta - Mancini Mancini connected extremely well with Cicinho so I expect him to remain on the right until Taddei is a 110%. In case Totti doesn't make it back for the match then I'd like to see Spalletti change some players around to help Mirko out. This in my opinion would be a good basis: Vucinic Perrotta - Pizarro - Mancini Perrotta doesn't get much play in the middle without Totti, so he could be moved over and used in a Taddei type of role as a ball fighter. Pizarro as a trequartista, and Mancini on the right. I'm in pretty high spirits, I think our defensive problems are starting to be resolved. I hope this weekend was a sign that Spalletti has realized that he can't play Mancini and Guily together, something I believe leaves us out of balance. I just feel that he needs to modify the formation a bit to make Vucinic more effective. Lazio is full of problems, they played this weekend with a 45 year old goal keeper, so hopefully we can disgrace them this game. I know they have a bunch of injuries so that will hopefully play into our hands. However it's a derby and I'm sure they will be pumped up to try and obtain a result. We really need to give 110% towards a victory as this match will be the springboard for the rest of the first half of the season. A victory here will keep us next to Inter and give us some confidence knowing we will face the smaller clubs (some of which shouldn't be under estimated).
