What? They won a game? And there's no coach to be fired? And their goalkeeper hasn't boarded a plane to London for nothing in the end but the free snacks? And there's the slight hope they could actually make Europe given the failings of other clubs? You mean they're normal?
The biggest issue without European football isn't the lack of funds or an inability to draw in the top tier players but rather that Roma is literally the only sports team I watch or give a damn about and so the middle of the week is left for me to do nothing but be a productive member of society (tragic) or buy things I don't really need instead of beetching about Federico Balzaretti's pinpoint crosses into the rightback's future children. Seriously. "Wait for the weekend, celebrate or moan for like twelve seconds and then wait for the weekend again." And it's made all the worse by the fact that there is no coach and given this current regime's desire to buy a philosophy and/or movement in lieu of a mere manager, transfers and all that fun fantacalcio are pointless. Basically, it's a matter of being spoonfed baseless rumors, rumors which are less than sexy in nature, or watching too much made of too little.
You know, things may not have been rosy, but they damn sure weren't boring - drama has its allure.
So, extracting things from the non-news:
Good thing this club isn't becoming a cliche or anything.
Read that again.
