Delio Rossi calls for all of us to forget about the derby and concentrate on other upcoming matches. But somehow, I can`t do that. At least until the kick off against Genoa, this Sunday at 3 PM. Defeats or wins in derbies include just too much emotions to forget them easily. For instance, when we lost 5-1 in a derby few seasons ago, I suffered a trauma, I could not concetrate at work and my boss noticed that. I was devastated to say the least. It took me a week to get over it. The oposite happened the last season`s derby when Behrami scored in the last minute to clinch a win. I was just too happy for the whole week. Never mind, I guess you have had enough of it with me this week.
On other news, it appears that Siviglia got injured and could miss the Genoa clash. The same goes for Ledesma and Radu who will miss through suspensions. Also, Rossi is thinking of resting Pandev and playing with Foggia-Rocchi-Zarate upfront. It will also be interesting to see our midfield without Ledesma. Dabo is expected to replace him. Brocchi and Meghni may start as well in the middle of the park. And if Siviglia doen`t make it, Diakite may see some playing minutes.
In an interesting story at corrieredellosport.it, it says that Lazio is trying to sign Javier Mascherano from Liverpoo. According to the same papers, the contacts with his manager have already been established. However, given his salary demands, I doubt he would join us. If he was available, I think many clubs would be after him.
