Season grades and performances – Attack

After analyzing last week the performances of Lazio defense and midfield, I conclude the rating by analyzing and the attack. We all expected more from the likes of Zarate and Floccari and much less from Kozak. Mauro Zarate – 5,5: I honestly expected so much more from the player whom we purchased for 20+ million …

Season grades and performances – Midfield

After grading and analyzing the performance of Lazio defense during the last season (which if you missed can be found here) today it is the turn to grade the performance of Lazio midfielders. Ledesma – 7,5: This was probably Cris`s best season since he arrived at Lazio. Leaving his contractual problems behind, he had focused …

Season grades and performances – Defense

If for anything else, we, the Lazio fans can be proud of our defense. Only the Serie A winner AC Milan had a better defensive record that we did. The arrivals of Dias and Biava proved to be crucial in obtaining this record. Worth noting are also good performances by Radu and in particular Lichsteiner …

Lazio – Parma: player ratings

Muslera – 7 (brilliant on several occasions. Defending that Giovinco shot in the first half was absolutely great) Lichsteiner – 6 (not the best of performances by the Swiss. Stendardo 6,5 (along with Dias, kept Amazuri silent throughout the match. Could easily replace Biava in the starting line up for good in my books) Dias …

Matuzalem – WTF ?

After the derby of 10 days ago when Ledesma was sent off and subsequently banned for 2 matches, it was all clear that the play-making duties will now fall on the shoulders of Francelino Matuzalem. Worth noting is the fact that his disciplinary state was not the best, as he was a yellow card shy …

Muslera injured – to miss Cagliari and Palermo matches

  I belive all of us were stunned to see Tomasso Berni start the last home match that we eventually won vs Bari. In case you are not up to date with the situation, Muslera got injured in the warm-up to Bari match. He was in pain and team doctors ordered his exclusion from the …
