The time for speculation and rumor mongering is almost over—there's about five weeks left in the summer transfer market—but before we jump into some actual friendlies, to say nothing of the actual season, Roma have set up a series of training matches, the first of which kicks off this morning against Tor Sapienza.

Now, I have no idea how long Fonseca plans to play each player, if there are different rules to a match like this or if the players will even be wearing real kits, but it is nonetheless our first look at Fonseca football, and that alone makes it worth watching and discussing.
