Pallotta ban reduced

Roma President James Pallotta has had his Champions League ban reduced from three months to one.

The American owner was given the ban for insulting match officials after the semi-final loss to Liverpool, having called the officiating “a joke”.

The Giallorossi appealed that, and their appeal has been partially upheld by UEFA.

“The appeal lodged by AS Roma is partially upheld,” a statement from the governing body explains.

EDF: 'New beginning for Roma'

Eusebio Di Francesco hopes the 4-0 win over Frosinone is “a new beginning” for Roma, but President James Pallotta “can say what he wants.”

The Giallorossi had only one victory this season, earned in stoppages at Torino, and were fresh from a shock 2-0 defeat to Bologna, a performance that Pallotta said left him “disgusted.”

Di Francesco revamped the side with a 4-2-3-1 formation, Cengiz Under proving inspirational.

The Roman Tragedy

This early season is turning into an authentic tragedy for Roma, which Andrea Tallarita breaks down act by act.

Something is rotten in the state of Roma: a tragedy in three acts.

Act One. What is rotten in the state of Roma?

Edin Dzeko isn't working: that's a plain and simple fact, and one which, in hindsight, should have been easier to predict. Last season, the Bosnian's Champions League heroics overshadowed his very real dips in Serie A form, but the truth is that his goal tally from the 2016-17 campaign almost halved.

Pallotta: 'I am disgusted'

Roma President James Pallotta had a brief but telling comment after a 2-0 defeat to Bologna. “I am disgusted.”

The Giallorossi’s dismal campaign continued today with a surprising loss at the Stadio Dall’Ara, against a side that hadn’t scored a single goal until now.

RomaPress contacted Pallotta to ask for his thoughts on the match and the team during this period.

“I am disgusted,” was the only response.

Pressure mounts on Di Francesco

Roma President James Pallotta is said to be increasingly unhappy with the start to the season, putting Coach Eusebio Di Francesco under pressure.

The Giallorossi blew a 2-0 lead at home to Chievo yesterday, and have won only once in their first four Serie A games.

According to today’s Gazzetta dello Sport, there is no immediate cause for alarm but Di Francesco will be kept “under observation” for the next round of matches: Real Madrid, Bologna, Frosinone and Lazio.

Roma strengthen by selling

Roma fans blame the business philosophy for poor results, but Andrea Tallarita claims they're literally improving the team by selling the best players.

For Roma, the story of the weekend wasn't so much that they drew against a side that hasn't won a single game this season, but that they did so in the silence of a half-empty Stadio Olimpico. The fans are deeply disillusioned, and the poor results (five points in four games) are not enough to account for the sullen faces.
