Roma v Catania

Numbers don't lie.

Julio Sergio:

Games - 22
Conceded - 20
Saves - 73
Ratio s/g - 3.65
w/d/l - 15-5-2

Doni:

Games - 10
Conceded - 12
Saves - 13
Ratio s/g - 1.08
w/d/l - 5-1-4

i. Three of those wins came in the Coppa Italia. In those games Doni made precisely zero saves.
ii. They "share" a draw - Fulham away. Julio Sergio conceded the opening goal and then came off at the half. Pesky groin.

Perhaps the credit to Ranieri is a bit much. Perhaps Julio Sergio is simply more important to this side than anyone could've ever imagined.

Tomorrow, with the chance for Ranieri to extract mental redemption and Julio Sergio watching from the stands, we may very well find out.

(The rest of the squad would do well to wake from naptime, too.)
