Siena-Roma Roma (4-3-3): Goicoechea; Piris, Marquinhos, Castan, Balzaretti; Bradley, Tachtsidis, Florenzi; Pjanic, Destro, Totti #asroma
I'm glad Cerse Cosmi, the flat capped gangster looking manager found another job.
Yeah, that guy is classic.
Psyched that Bradley is basically a lock starter at this point for Roma. Very cool.
Roma down 1-0 right now, off of a header to the near post.
1-0 Siena off a corner kick. A Siena defender rises above 3 Roma players to head home. Bradley not one of them. Bradley has been so so thus far, but just sent in a good cross that could've easily resulted in something.
Fellani's evil twin?
He's playing fine. Dangerous FK right now from totti outside the box...
Wow!!! What a keeper! Stopped a rocket by totti off of a roll from a player on a dead ball FK, Totti hits a bomb at the keeper at the top of the box... to only save it!
Every match I can catch of Roma... I see their offense just not on the same page as each other. Like it's the first time the guys are playing together.
Passing not connecting, the ball goes left a guy runs right.... Frustrating I can imagine for Roma fans.
Bradley not impressing at all
He has been uncharacteristically sloppy with the ball so far. Siena is doing a good job frustrating the Roma attack, so almost no one is playing that well for Roma. I could see Osvaldo coming on and Pjanic being moved back into midfield.
Siena hasn't allowed a goal since Halloween, so it's easy to see why Roma's attack has been a horror show so far.
The nice thing about a stat based rating site like WhoScored is that they have a live scoring, including the half-time grades.
Mikey - 29 touches, 79% passing accuracy, 1 shot, 1 tackle - 5.9 rating (the lowest of all field players but the attackers are similarly rated - Destro 6.0, Pjanic 6.1, Totti 6.2).
Great ball from Totti to find Bradley bursting into the box, but Mike's cross is too high for whoever it was at the far post.
Bradley is unfortunately having one of his worst matches. However, so is Roma in general
The pitch is crap.
Finally, 1-1 Destro. Bradley is making more aggressive runs but it's not really happening for him. Wouldn't be surprised if he's the first subbed. Not sure since they scored now.
Can't get the GI Joe theme song out of my head
Pjanic just wide
He is making all the right runs, but his poise on the final ball has been poor. His teammates early in the match were happy to find him in space...now he is last option ball.
Baaaah. Pjanic has to take that one-time shot!
Man. I love Totti.
