Latest before Atalanta clash

Reports from Formello suggest that Delio Rossi may well have to be without 2 more important players: Rozenhal (fevers) and Foggia (muscle injury). When you add to that Pandev and Siviglia, we enter this match with almost without half of our team. As things stand for the moment, we may see the following formation: Carrizo; …

Atalanta – Lazio, preview

vs.    After 2 weeks without a win, we travel to Bergamo to face Atalanta, who are always very dangerous at home. The latter team is having ups and downs so far this season, but I expect a tough encounter, as Del Neri`s teams always cause difficultys for us (see last season`s defeat 2-1). As for …

Losing the derby because of a lousy coach

The fears that I expressed in my previous posts related to Delio Rossi starting with tridente became reality last night. Just like in the first half against Catania, tridente was unable to create let alone score. Everyone who has watched Lazio this season could see that we lost the match because our coach tried to …

Mauri for Dabo in the derby !?

Latest reports from Formello indicate that Delio Rossi may include Stefano Mauri in midfield instead of Ausmane Dabo, who was initially supposed to start. With Mauri and tridente, the team would be too offensive oriented and they may catch us in the breaks. Nevertheless, as both Udinese and Napoli lost today, a win in the …
