I spend a copious amount of time reading these forums and i save my opinion on things that bother me greatly. My issue today is the way Roma are setting themselves up. To me this period in the history of soccer must definitly be termed "the revolution of soccer". Major changes have taken place these past few weeks. And it is signified by the FIFA centenial celebrations where on display were world superstars in nearly every position. After the last world cup it is clear that international teams seem to be evenening out as once weaker teams defeated the traditional powerhouses. More evidently is the crash of the world transfer market. Prices of players have drastically declined and footballers are more than just soccer players but celebrities. But most importantly the greatest scholars of our game are being tossed around from club to club.The coaches - the people who develop superstars.

Lippi is leaving his legendary relationship with Juventus(the number one "lady" in my life), Capello might leave Roma, Real have just appointed a Camacho, Houllier is sacked, Ferguson having his issues with Man u's board, Quiroz sacked, Mourinho going to Chelsea and many others changing the paths of their lives. Instant success is critical nowadays and the tradintional method of building over years has gone by.

Yet i see Roma buying Cassano, then buy Mancini, then comes chivu, then comes mexes and other youngsters with amazing potential and ability for their age. And i think to myself - this seems very traditional.They even have leaders like totti to learn from. And i wonder how strong this squad will be in a few years. Wow, very strong. They will have the potential to develop the greatest defence in a long time. And there attack will be lethal.

Although I have disliked Roma for a long time - the attitude they are displaying might make me neutral towards them.

Thank You.

n.b. hope maresca stays with us forever

they are trying to improve their squad although they have financial problems, they are developing with young players and and a good manager,...

concerning mexes, its very normal from them to try and capture him, after samuel left the squad to Real...

Juventus are looking so insubstantial till now in the transfer market, but lets wait and see...

this is what im petrified with, but roma shouldnt even be allowed to do so as they are in masive debt, yet they can still "finance" the player via i expeceted long term loans from banks....bastards.

Az, excellent post, and your points are very valid. I had ranted about this a couple of times myself on other threads, and I share the same concerns that you do.

The bottom line is this. Unless the Italian government decides to move the capital of Italy somewhere else, then you can set your watch to the fact that Roma will be in Serie A and the only way they won't be will be due to actions ON the pitch, not off it.

Great post, Az :) As much as I dislike Roma and Sensi, I wish we would operate like they do when it comes to transfers, for the most part anyways.

I don't know... I'm very much upset with how Roma are dealing with things and how Juve seem to sit back and not bother. but at the end of the day, it all depends. I mean, some teams might have great players, but football's a team effort - as inferior we seem to Roma in terms of new players (should they get better ones), we might lose out on good players, but we might not lose out as being a great team.

azizhen, you do have strong points. Everything is logical.

Roma is in serious trouble financially. They need to sell some fo their experienced players and buy promising Mexes type of players comparatively cheap. That's how they make money. As you mentioned, they have been extremely accurate and smart in their transfer policies.

And Roma has one of the best managers in the world, which is very important.

I personally have no dislike towards Roma, at least not as much as towards Milan. Football they've been showing this year has been very entertaining.
