All good things come to an end, so Roma’s perfect start had to end sometime, so it’s no surprise that Roma lost a match after starting a perfect 6-0-0 in all competitions. However, I don’t know if anyone figured Roma would’ve seen its perfect start snapped by a struggling Hellas Verona side that had just fired manager Eusebio Di Francesco.

While Roma’s half-dozen victories gave us plenty to talk about, Jose Mourinho’s first loss as Roma manager may have given us even more to discuss. In this episode, Jimmy, Brandon, and I touched on Roma’s victory over CSKA before going in-depth on the Verona match. We weigh in on some troubling trends that may be beginning to develop and some individual performances. Plus, we look ahead to Thursday’s match against Udinese and the much anticipated Derby della Capitale on Sunday.
