Yeah, so all the other teams can come up with a sponser, but Roma who are in the CL can't?  What's the deal with that?

And If Palotta thinks the players we have brought in are better than the ones we sold, he is smoking crack.    We are doing things on the cheap

Clichy is s***e so why are we even interested? He can't defend to save his life but is available on a free transfer so we've approached him!       If this deal happens then we are officially a laughing stock (if we're not already.)

In terms of sales, it seems that the club is open to offers for almost any  of the squad. Money talks, I understand that but Pallotta & Co are running out of time as far as I'm concerned. Get some money spent on quality players..........or leave the club asap.

Some great non transfer news in Morgan De Sanctis returning to Roma as a liason of sorts between the players & the suits.

More bad news after the apparent sale of Rudiger, now PSG are sniffing round Manolas.....bollox! I think I could get a game in Roma's defence at this rate!?!?! If we sell both CBs then we are f****d.

I used to play CB as well.  We can take the place of Rudiger and Manolas.  

But wait, now Fazio as well?

WTF is going on???  The tifosi cannot be happy with this.    Where is Roma Girl?

I believe the phrase the youngsters use is WTAF.....

Even my usual faith in Roma's transfer policy is being shaken right now....

Selling one or the other of Manolas and Rudiger was bad news, selling both is crazy....

The only caveat to this is to judge where we are in 12 months, if we re-invest the funds and build a better team, it's all good.....though it's a very big risk right now.....

Too great a risk, TR! It's a good job we are in the group stage of the CL because a qualifying round would be another disaster, just ask Rangers?!?!

Yep, would agree it's a very risky strategy, just meaning that we have to give Monchi and EDF time to build their own team, though at the current rate we're selling important players I'd be amazed if we're able to match this year's top 2 finish....I'd love to be proved wrong though!

And yes, don't have a great love for Rangers either, the Celtic fans out there will be having a field day...

This is nearly as funny as Crystanbul when Liverpool blew the league at Palace, which is saying something. Anyway Dels is upset so I'll leave it at that........

No further unexpected Roma outgoings yesterday so a good day! Oh the joys of being a Romanista at the moment.

I think Roma Girl has probably exploded with anger as well but it would be good to hear what's happening with the fans in Rome. Come back and update us with the gossip!

I know, we haven't sold anybody today yet    (well not yet anyway....)

BTW was interested to read Milan may be ready to part with Bertolacci for half what we sold him for, a reminder that cashing in on players can sometimes pay off (I know I'm clutching at straws, but that's all we've got right now....)

Quote:
Milan have reportedly given up on Andrea Bertolacci and are prepared to sell him for just 10m half of what they paid for the midfielder two years ago.

Bertolacci joined Milan for 20m in the summer of 2015, after a season that saw him emerge as one of Serie As most impressive midfielders and break into the Italy squad.

However, he made just 48 appearances in his two campaigns at San Siro, and Calciomercato.com claims Milan have accepted that his transfer did not work out.

The website cites the 26-year-olds lack of personality, weakness in character, tactical misunderstandings and, above all, injuries as the reasons for his failings at Milan.

Fixed.

Anyway, I ain't all that upset. I didn't even realise Rangers had qualified for the Europa League and I thought we were playing friendlies.

I totally agree on Lukaku although the deal hasn't been agreed according to some media outlets. Fingers crossed, touch wood etc etc

I would take Bertolacci back on the cheap.   After all, that's what we do now isn't it?

Yep, Roma's plan seem to be buy as cheaply as possible at the moment. If the bid for Defrel at 16M as per various reports is true then the club is taking the piss and we will miss out on players we should be signing.

We are going rapidly backwards right now!?!?!  

Also as a CL group stage club, will there be a shirt sponsor this season or are we throwing easy money away again?

I hate to be pessimistic, but why sell Rudiger at all?  For what purpose?

Exactly! Why sell all these players, the team finished second last season or have the Yanks forgotten already? I really believe that they don't really understand Roma or calcio for that matter.......

On a potentially more positve note, Monchi says the sales are over & the club will now invest in the squad. The quicker the better or the fans will revolt. It's amazing that the whole thing hasn't boiled over tbh.

we shall see.  I am still nervous about Radja being sold.    If he goes then the Curva should boycott again

I saw several messages yesterday on social media that made the Roma players (Radja, Strootman etc) seem pessimistic about the upcoming season because of the clubs transfer policy so it's not just the fans who are pissed off. All understandable after the fire sale that has taken place.

Sassuolo standing firm re Roma's potential purchases of their players, even saying that Monchi knows what price he needs to pay to secure their services. Get it done asap or get other players, we need them.

You have to hang on to Nainggolan. He is without doubt one of the superstars of European football.

Inter sniffing blood.
