It’s not every day Roma treats us to five goals in a match, let alone in one half. But, that’s just what the Giallorossi did on Sunday in Bologna. Roma bounced back from its midweek disappointment in the Europa League in scintillating fashion. With that in mind, we had plenty of plaudits to hand out, much like the most recent edition of Bren’s Sinners and Saints. So, if Sean and I were just a little extra cheerful in this recording, it’s not just because Santa will arrive soon.

In this episode, Sean and I breakdown all of the key moments from Roma’s Bolognese feast and touch upon the following issues:

  • Bologna’s tactics
  • Ibañez’s monster defensive performance
  • Roma’s more balanced attack
  • Who’s more to blame for the own goal?
  • Dzeko climbing the all-time scorer's list
  • Pellegrini’s growth
  • Villar’s place in the team
  • What’s with the substitution patterns?
  • Predictions for Roma heading into the holidays
