Here's the next 3:

22/12 Milan (H)
6/1 Napoli (A)
13/1Catania (A)

Thats 3rd, 7th and 8th in the table. I would say those matches will go a long way towards answering whether Roma will have a chance at the champions league, or end up midtable.

Anybody know why Bradley was subbed out in the loss to Verona?

Well, I think that probably tells where this season is going for Roma. The loss at Napoli could have gone the other way. Bradely missed a sitter... The loss at Catania is the kind of thing that happens to teams that are good, but not great. Im going to stop hoping this Roma team can crack the top 3 now.

And spurs couldnt get it a win at QPR either.

It would be nice if one of the Americans on a big team in a big league could have played in CL in the 2013-2014 season ahead of the world cup.

There's a long way to go but I tend to agree with you.

Roma were stupid to fire Montella and hire a washed up Zeman who has won nothing in his career. Montellia is a young and upcoming coach with positive ideas. He has a great future as a coach, Zemen has been worn out and used the same tactics forever.

I dont see Roma ending up in a UCL spot.

I used to think Roma were a good team back when Totti was on fire, but now they are just a mediocre team. Still glad Bradley moved up to Roma, but a little too late ... Roma are the Liverpool of the Italian league washed up abs going nowhere.

Same here thisguy2. I'm happy he moved there and I would not be shocked to see Bradley move again in a few years to an even bigger club(in Serie A) if he can stay healthy and continue his success. He has the talent to play for a Juventus, Milan or Inter.

Coming from a guy that watches each one of these teams every week. He can do it if he takes another step up. One more level. Bradley has grown so much in these last 2-3 years.


The next test for the Dooley-led revitalization of the Philippine national team kicks off soon.
