Hopefully Mikey gets the start.
ROMA (4-3-3): Goicoechea; Piris, Marquinhos, Burdisso, Balzaretti; Bradley, Tachtsidis, Florenzi; Lamela, Osvaldo, Totti
A disp. | Subs: Svedkauskas, Taddei, Castan, Dodò, Romagnoli, De Rossi, Pjanic, Perrotta, Marquinho, Lopez, Destro
He's starting AND I get to watch it on tv rather than a stream. Tis a good morning.
I'm interested in seeing how this midfield works....I think Bradley and Florenzi can play well off each other.
I admire Zeman's brass. Hope this works out for him.
He has a knock
Since when does Serie A allow 11 on the bench?
Bradley's got his work cut out for him today, 5 man midfield for Palermo.
Totti chests it into the net. 1-0 Roma.
Nevermind, it was a header.
Atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired. I don't like all the empty seats close to the pitch. It's one thing when there's a track around the pitch which is common in Serie A, but without a track all the empty seats near the pitch just doesn't look good.
I'm behind, but that control by MB at the corner of the box was impressive, possession before the goal.
Hasnt put a foot wrong yet. Solid..
Palermo must have watched the Spurs match yesterday, those inswinging corners aimed right at the goal are tough to handle.
Great control great through ball.
Bradley looking very good in the 1st 30 mins.
Oh dear. A play that begins with Bradley getting stripped ends with Osvaldo passing into an open net. 2-0 Roma.
Better description. Piris (?) passed to Bradley from the back, he tried to hold it up but it got stripped. Piris I think knocked it away, an aimless long ball forward which Osvaldo chased. It was coming to nothing until the keeper and defender collided.
Well, that's quite a ridiculous mistake.
One of the Palermo players reminded me of this.
36 min in Bradley is playing really good soccer
If Clint could move the ball like MB, he'd be fitting much better at Spurs.
Are you saying Bradley to Spurs? I hadn't heard that rumor before.
Separate names with a comma.
