De Rossi deserved better

Roma’s treatment of Daniele De Rossi is the final straw for Michael Barbaro, proving club loyalty is dead and the Giallorossi have lost their soul.

May 26 is going to be an emotional day for Italian football fans. Roma announced this week that Daniele De Rossi will play his final game for the club against Parma, just two years after Francesco Totti’s farewell.

But I ask the question - why is it that in most contemporary footballing discussions and debates we beg for more players to show loyalty to their clubs when in reality clubs barely tend to show it back?

Pallotta: 'Roma must demand stadium'

Roma President James Pallotta called for fans to “demand action” after city officials refused to even meet for the Stadio della Roma project.

This evening, Pallotta posted a message via the official Roma website.

“Stadium Update: Sent senior stadium staff from Boston to Rome hoping to make progress but city officials were too busy to meet.

“Maybe new stadium, big investment & lots of new jobs in Rome is not that important. If fans want a new stadium, they need to demand action.”

Pallotta: 'Roma Stadium like Colosseum'

Roma President James Pallotta said their Stadio della Roma project is “getting close” to taking as long to build as the Colosseum.

The plans to build their own arena has been at the forefront since Pallotta first took over in 2011, but is still no closer to completion.

In fact, a recent political and corruption scandal in Rome involving one of the figures behind giving the all-clear to the project could threaten them to start everything from scratch.
