Dont think he will be going 90 again with game this weekend, atleast I hope not.
With Bradley and DDR starting who plays the regista DCU?
My bet is De Rossi. Their lineups almost always list the player on the right first, and it's the arrangement Zeman utilized in the last 25 minutes on Saturday.
Looks like Mike's gonna be on the bench for the next league game then.
Maybe. There's 5 players that started on Saturday in the lineup.
Stekelenburg; Piris, Romagnoli, Burdisso, Balzaretti; Bradley, De Rossi, Pjanić; Destro, Osvaldo, López
Im not sure, but I dont think Bradley and DDR have started a game yet together this season. Hence my curiosity. I dont think Bradley starting today means he wont start 5 days from now. If there was any game to rest him it would be this one, but there he is as usual. Ive learned to never bet against Mikey. Next Serie A game is against his former team too, so I bet he plays a big part in that game.
Just seems like with DDR back that Bradley would take a backseat for a bit after full 90s for the past 4-5 games.
Then again, Zeman didn't seem too bothered to play Daniele until fairly late in the game so...
Edit: Oh wait, next game's against Chievo right? Forgot.
I would like bradley to play regista just to giv him a break from running as much.
But I am guessing he's intermedio.
Atalanta has a lot of talented players on their team.
Wow, is the stadium really that empty, or are most of the people just in the upper tiers?
I just tuned in, but Bradley seems to be in the intermedio slot.
16th minute, Pjanic kicks a free kick over the bar from 25 yards
Its Coppa Italia, probably not many people there.
Pjanic with a rocket. 1-0.
I believe he got the ball from Bradley, but no assist as I think the defender had gotten a touch.
20th minute. Wow, could have been a pk, as a Roma player gets armed down in the box. Instead, the Cal goes against him.
Goal Pjanic! 1-0 Roma. Rocket of a shot, but the keeper should have done better with it.
Yellow for Pjanic, seemed a bit harsh. Free kick leads to a corner, which ends in a missed shot.
Ugh, ugly attempt to head it back to the keeper by Burdisso leads to another Atalanta corner. Comes to nothing.
LOL @ that. Nice work there Atalanta.
Haha 2-0 Roma.
Unless Atalanta turns this around, I hope Bradley gets an early sub off in the 2nd half.
Goal Osvsldo! Bradley not involved. 2-0 good guys.
Yuck... does the Atalanta keeper get the hook @ halftime?
Maybe him resting against Chievo means they need him fresh for Milan?
no reason to rest him on the weekend when he'll have a week before the milan game.
It's amazing how many times Bradley gets free on the right. He's bound to get some goals soon.
HT. 2-0. Not an especially exciting half. Roma had the better of the play, though Atalanta controlled the last 10 min or so. Atalanta seems content to shoot from 25 yards. Nothing has come close so far.
