Is It Possible For Roma to Get Back on Track This Season?

So far, Roma has had a very inconsistent season. Whenever the club plays, it’s as if you don’t know what you’re going to get. Roma reminds me of a common saying from a certain someone in a movie we all know. However, it’ll be interesting to see whether Roma can recover from its rollercoaster ride in the first half of their season.

Why Won’t Roma Turn Their Season Around? 

Well, Roma has qualified for the round of 16 in the Champions League, one thing has plagued them this season. That is the club’s defense. Now, I’m not going to sit here and say Roma needs to completely overhaul its backline, but the club needs to improve at the back in order to become more consistent. Roma has a wealth of pace and excitement upfront, but the club can’t rely on scoring more than 1 goal every game to win. Well, Roma plays an exciting attacking game, it will not benefit them if the defense doesn’t improve.

Roma has a very little chance of turning its season around if their main striker, Edin Dzeko, continues to not score. It’s interesting because in the Champions League he has plenty of goals, but in order to help Roma improve its results, Dzeko needs to step up. If Edin Dzeko doesn’t step up, Roma’s path of inconsistency will remain. If anyone is wondering why Dzeko needs to step up, it’s because Roma’s wingers and midfielders keep scoring goals for them, but their main purposes aren’t to score, unless your CR7 or Messi. But, in any case Dzeko needs to score to allow these other players to focus on what they do best or this season will implode for Roma.

Why Roma Will Turn Their Season Around?

Last season at this time, Roma were in a similar position in Italian soccer and ended up qualifying for the Champions League for this season as well as making it all the way to the Champions League semifinals. If there’s anything to gather from last season, it’s that Eusebio Di Francesco is a good manager and will be able to motivate and setup his squad for success in the future. If he can figure out how to improve this defense, it will lead to more consistent results.

Edin Dzeko has only scored two goals in the Serie A season, thus far. But, he only scored that many goals at the beginning of the season. He could only improve from here and that is a good thing for Roma, as they will be battling on three fronts for a while. Many clubs don’t want to imagine how good Roma would be if Dzeko steps up to the plate. Also, considering the amount of goals he has already scored in the Champions League this season, he should be doing some damage in Europe.

Will Allegri Leave Juventus After This Season Ends? If So, What Would Be His Ideal Destination?

There has been many rumors swirling around the football world that Juventus’ Current Manager, Massimiliano Allegri, will leave Juventus at the end of the season. However, these rumors have been circulating for a couple of seasons now. As a Juventus fan, I’m pretty content with him staying as their manager.

WILL ALLEGRI ACTUALLY LEAVE JUVENTUS AT THE END OF THE SEASON?

For the past couple of seasons, I have doubted any claims that Massimiliano Allegri is leaving Juventus. I don’t know if that’s because I don’t mind him as being Juve’s manager or not. His trophy count for Juventus definitely helps his case, in my view. However, one competition that Juve has not won in a while is the dreaded Champions League. Whatever the reasons are for that, it will be interesting to see if that trophy will dictate whether Allegri leaves Juve or not. We all know that the Drake curse is the main reason. He shouldn’t have worn Juve’s pink shirt. But, in all seriousness, I believe that if Allegri leaves Juventus at end of this season it will be because he won the Champions League with the club. Other than that, I do not see what is holding him back from leaving Juve, as he has won everything else in Turin. If Juventus wins the Champions League trophy, look for Allegri at the airport in Turin a few days later.

WHICH CLUB WOULD BE IDEAL FOR ALLEGRI, IF HE LEAVES JUVE?

There is still a good possibility that Allegri remains at Juventus until the end of his contract in 2020. But, it is fun to think of which club he would be best suited for, if he were to leave Turin. My answer for this is Real Madrid. I know many people may think that right now Real Madrid is a manager’s graveyard currently, but it would be a perfect fit for Allegri. The main reason that I believe this is because while Real Madrid does not possess CR7 anymore, Allegri would be great at working with the talent that Real Madrid has at their disposal. Allegri is very good at scouting out other club’s weaknesses and getting players to buy in to his tactics for any match. Also, one thing Allegri would bring to Real Madrid is discipline. He has shown at Juventus that no matter who you are, you are no bigger than the club which could work for Real Madrid.

This Serie A season has been a roller coaster thus far. I know that fans of other leagues say that this competition isn’t as fun to watch because Juventus wins the Scudetto year after year. However, they are so wrong. There has been a couple players and clubs that have stood out thus far. Although I will choose one of each. So, sit back, relax and enjoy.

MOST IMPRESSIVE CLUB SO FAR : JUVENTUS

If any of you reading this right now, follow my social media pages you’d know that I am a massive Juventus fan. However, as is often the case, I had to be objective. I know, it’s the dreaded 9-letter word when it comes to football fandom.

I must admit that there were two other clubs I was considering for this Calcio Fan Blog award, lol. But Juventus stood out for me. A massive reason in which they stood out in the first half of the season for me was, well, the number 0 in the l column. Indeed, they are undefeated. But, it doesn’t seems as though they’ve hit their full stride yet, which is impressive. The fact that they’ve been accumulating so many good results is amazing, considering how they haven’t looked great all season. That’s why they stood out. They are able to find results, despite the fact that their form isn’t great. If this club remains undefeated the whole season, they will definitely be the club I’m most impressed with at the end of the season. Move along, there is no bias here…………

MOST IMPRESSIVE PLAYER SO FAR: Krysztof Piatek

During the summer transfer window, Genoa had signed this player named Krysztof Piatek whom many people probably didn’t know of. Fast forward to now and he has 13 goals. Which is mind-boggling! He is one goal behind Cristiano Ronaldo for Serie A’s golden boot.

While, Serie A possesses the talent of CR7, Mauro Icardi, Paulo Dybala, and many others, no one expected that Piatek would be this good. When Genoa’s scouts picked spotted this player and chose to sign him, they were smart in doing that. He has played amazing so far and is only 23, which makes him even more fascinating. All I will say to Genoa is good luck attempting to keep him, as you’d expect many clubs to come for him in the current January transfer window as well as the Summer one. Piatek is one for the now, as opposed to the future and if he keeps impressing me, it will tough for me not to be so fascinated in the player.
