    You don’t get stars for 16 million euros. He was a “misfit” when we bought him and was horrible his first season.

    I think the only 'stars' that Roma buys are of the red dwarf or black dwarf variety.

    Regardless if he was coming off a cold season or not, Dzeko was/is a star. The last player purchased while having been a star was Batistuta.

    Corvino did well to find Vucigol but he was far from being a star at Lecce.

    Vucinic... the least useful Roma attacker ever. The only thing that was more unfortunate than his football skills was his face.

    Between him and Pastore, I don't know whom I dislike more.

    Moral of the story: No donkey face attackers for Roma anymore.

    Nah, Vucinic it is. The one who went at Juve and got figured out for a second tier t-shirt hanger.

    It was about the time me and one other fellow initiated the first official AS Roma fan-club in our country. Half of the people loved that Montenegran donkey, the other half hated his guts. Good times!

    He certainly wasn't clinical but he had a lot of game IQ. I always thought Juves attack clicked much better when he was on. Cant agree he was found out, the opposite actually. He fitted in as a good player in a well oiled machine.

    Mirko Vucinic, Julio Batista and Simone Perrotta are probably responsible for the 99% of broken TVs and furniture in Rome during the time of their stay in the club.

    Geniuses indeed.

    The only positive he had going for him was his facial hair.

    Essentially, any time we place expectations on someone they fail here. Even "star" Dzeko was ass his first season.

    Obviously, this theory means Mert will end up being our best CB, which I'm down with.

    Your hate towards Florenzi is easy to explain, but hard to understand.

    Oh, yeah, I forgot that the cool kids here love to hate him for no reason. :) Not the first time that particular club is quite wrong though *remembering all the Moronchi shill-pocalypse from the same crowd* :whistling:

    Shame that all of Roma's coaches rated him good enough to be a starter over natural wing-backs, many of which people here have been over-selling too. It's fine though, my I TOLD YOU SO keyboard buttons might be fading after Moronchi has been figured out, but they still have enough life in them for some relaxing Florenzi-haters ridiculing.

    News today that we had an agreement with Lyon to take Depay, but the player refused which led us to get Mkhitaryan.

    It takes a special breed of coward to badmouth someone in a forum and not have the decency to tag them.

    @L'immortale welcomes you to his bandwagon of forum ******

    There is no need to tag someone when you know they’ll come across it at their leisure.
