    Not sure what Sabatini is waiting on but if Roma doesnt get a Cb(Kjaer been talked about a lot) and some help in the midfield then its going to be a lonlong season. Would love Casemiro and Fernando in the midfield or Thiago if Barca wants to loan him out.

    Let's be honest...it's going to be a long season for Roma no matter who they sign. Just reality.

    I fear the Italian league may not be best for Forlan. In Spain he can do what he wants when he wants. Its a very open game.

    Not sure how well he will do in Italy

    I doubt very serious at all, Barca put something like a 150m buyout clause on him after he resigned this summer. I'm not sure how interested we would be in a loan with no right of redemption...

    It is the Barca way. Cesc has a 200m buyout in his. Hulk from Porto has a 100m.

    sure a team would love to put those kinds of buyouts on a kid. But why in gods name would you agree to it as a player.

    I get it for Cesc because he is a fucking idiot who has a hard on for being a bench player at Barca.

    I wouldn't mind a KaKa return.

    We don't have a legit CAM...... Binho and Prince wont get it done in the CL. I still think KaKa can.

    I always get this wrong but so forgive me but.......

    Abate ------ Silva ----- Nesta ------- Tiawo

    -- Prince ----VanBom/Gattuso ---- Aqua --

    ------------------ KaKa ---------------------

    ----------Ibra/Pippo ---- Pato/Binho ---------

    I wouldn't be mad at that. Would actually love Monto in the center of that mid but whatever......

    Anyone that is worth a shit for Barca and has come up through La Masia has an absurd buyout. I don't know why they do it (the players) but I'm not mad about it :smug:

    But especially for Thiago I have no idea why the fuck he would do that. He doesn't really fit the same mold as the other "buyout" players.

    If I was a legit star on the rise and my agent approached me with a 100m buyout on my contract I would fire him on the spot.

    Maybe I'm just ignorant on the subject, but I don't see how a buyout clause is in a player's interest at all. So why set one so high for yourself?

    Yeah i don't get it either.

    I think most young kids have there parents running there careers and they are clueless and just fall for what ever bullshit a team or handler may offer.

    iirc Ganso only owns 15% of himself or some shit like that and a handler/company and his team split the other 85%

    Looking like we'll just have to wait two more weeks for Serie A to start because those dago faggots are gonna go on strike + the retarded international break is right after that. We'll be in fine form for the start of the CL lol

    Obviously, God knows what can happen in this sport with injuries and Moratti blowing every ref in Italy, but I feel very confident heading into this season.

    Wish we were better prepared for the Champions League, but maybe next year will be the year we can reload and build a squad capable of challenging.

    I'm over Ganso by the way and I think our management is as well.

    Our midfield is much better with the addition of Aquilani, IMO, and I won't be surprised if we end up signing Montolivo before it's all said and done. If we can do that, then we will be setup for a great run in Italy over the next few years.

    I would love to add montolivo. But with Galli and Allegri both claiming we are done in the market I don't know how possible that is. But I hope we can. I think a midfield of Aqua/Prince/Monto would be really good and very talented.

    How would you set up the team with Aqua and Mono knowing that both MvB and KpB are seemingly assured of spots?

    Would you play Monto in the trequarterista role with Aqua on the left?

    Abbiati​
    Abate-Nesta-Silva-Taiwo​
    Aquilani-Van Bommel-Montolivo​
    Robinho-Ibrahimovic​
    Pato​

    That's what I would do... Wouldn't be surprised if Allegri puts Boateng behind Ibra and Pato/Robinho...​

    Aquilani and Montolivo would fit pretty well in Allegri's more midfield. Imagine them in scoring/passing positions instead of Gattuso and Flamini last year lol... Allgeri and Boateng have also hinted that KPB's future with the club is at RCM, so you could put either Aquilani and Montolivo behind two strikers.​

    At least we would have some options, but I'd put them on Van Bommel's flanks before I put them anywhere else.​

    I like Ibra in that role behind Pato as well...the other reason I would like to see Aqua and Monto on together is it would help the national team.

    Roma dominated the game but didnt finish its chances. Plus Juan, Lamela, DDR, Osvaldo, and Kjaer werent on the team today so the team at the end of the game was a bunch of teenagers and Cassetti at cb.

    Roma still needs at least 2 midfielders because to be competitive in Serie A

    Big controversy has been brewing between Totti and Enrique and when Totti was subbed out for Okakshit(:facepalm:) Totti walked straight to the locker room
