    Bradley better come to play today. Can't see him having many more chances at this rate.

    Am I missing something? He's had some good matches, some bad matches, but his performance on Sunday was fine IMO. Unless he was terrible in the first 30 minutes of the match that I had missed.

    Anyways, the big surprise is Zeman's formation change.

    Totti/Osvaldo injured. Lamela suspended. Nico Lopez with Uruguay U-20s.

    He hasn't been himself in a while IMO. Lots of loose passes. And it's not as much him being bad as it is the Roma team needs a change. He was decent last game but the previous two he was sub-par IMO.

    Ivan Piris is awful. Roma need a RB.

    Bradley just had a slick move to get past a man in the midfield and spring a counter attack. Looks sharp so far.

    One of the areas he's improved the most since he's arrived in Italy is in his ability to evade tackles.

    Bradley with a brilliant sliding tackle that wins possession, the ball finds Destro who slides it just wide of the post. Bradley with his best game in a while so far.

    Bradley sliding interception leads to an opportunity that Destro puts just wide.

    he is the one highest rated RB in Italy

    And just getting back from an injury, he honestly shouldnt be playing but were going through a crisis.

    Bradley floats a left footed ball into the box just out of the reach of Florenzi (who has been poor again).

    I think this is an unfair reflection on Florenzi. He is being given the Danny Williams treatment, played out of position in a role he's not suited.

    Aquilani smacks the crossbar with a freekick.

    Pjanic picks up a yellow card for some reason then fires wide.

    He might be good defensively but he looks like Jonathan Bornstein going forward.

    ------

    I know I'm biased but Bradley was the best Roma player in that half for me.

    Lots of yellows, 3 in the first half.

    This match is about 100 times less exciting than the one 6 weeks ago between the sides.
    yankthisyank'swank and INKRO repped this.

    I can think of 10 RBs in Serie A off the top of my head that are better than him.
