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.

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.
