Following a slightly frustrating start to the 2017/2018 campaign under new manager Eusebio Di Francesco, which was underlined by a loss to Inter Milan and a tough draw with Atletico Madrid, the relentless Rome media pack were out in force to sling criticism his way.
In the latter fixture, however, which was a credible 0-0 draw with an exceptional Atletico Madrid outfit, the angst was particularly fervent, with many demanding dramatic improvement. Reports then went into overdrive suggesting that club president, James Palotta, even stated he was unsatisfied by the result and the performance. Palotta then vehemently denied such claims and reiterated his support of Di Francesco, while

After two successful seasons at Sassuolo under the watchful eye of the newly installed AS Roma manager, Eusebio Di Francesco, Lorenzo Pellegrini's singing makes perfect sense for the Giallorossi.
Being a former Roma youth product, the move represents a return home for the 21-year-old, something Pellegrini described as the fulfilling of a dream, and a fine reward for all his hard work, improvement and persistence with the Neroverdi. Moreover, his arrival will hold extra significance to the fans, who love their homegrown players, for they now have three Rome born academy graduates to cheer on as Pellegrini joins

Even though Luciano Spalletti did a fantastic job in his second stint managing AS Roma, which culminated in him leading the club to an exceptional second place finish in Serie A this season, he knew he'd had enough.
While choosing to leave after acquiring the most points ever in a league campaign for the storied club (87) and achieving the highest points per game average (roughly two per game) of any manager in their history, Spalletti's decision to leave is entirely understandable, however.
Under constant scrutiny and pressure from the relentless Roman media, especially in relation to his handling of the legendary Francesco Totti, who many felt Spalletti under used,

Despite being stuck behind AS Roma's exceptional midfielder duo of Daniele De Rossi and Kevin Strootman for chunks of the season, Leandro Paredes has proved himself to be a brilliant replacement whenever afforded an opportunity.
The former Boca Juniors product, who Roma signed as a trequartista in 2014 and was transformed into a deep lying playmaker under Marco Giampaolo on loan at Empoli last season, has continued his adaption to his new role beautifully. Indeed, as the campaign's progressed and he's further honed his skillset at the base of midfield, Paredes' importance to the Giallorossi has grown rapidly, with his form seeing him emerge as a creative, reliable and

Any Manchester City fans stumbling upon coverage of a Roma game this season could be forgiven for not recognizing the tall, powerful forward banging in goal after goal for the Giallorossi. But the imposing figure in the No.9 shirt, the man who tops the Serie A scoring charts this season with 27 goals in 35 games, in none other than former City striker Edin DÂžeko.
In five season at the Etihad Stadium, DÂžeko, though a regular goal scorer, was never taken into the hearts of the City faithful in quite the same way as the more prolific Sergio AgÃ¼ero or diminutive genius David Silva.
When the towering, 6ft 4ins Bosnian was shipped out to Roma on loan in the summer of 2015, befor

Even though AS Roma prevailed 3-2 over Lazio in the second leg of their Coppa Italia semifinal, it still wasn't enough to overturn the two goal deficit they faced from the first leg, as they disappointingly succumbed 3-4 on aggregate.
On a night that marked the return of the Curva Sud, another positive could be drawn from the impressive performance of Stephan El Shaarawy. Starting his 22nd match of the season, the skillful attacker gave the fans plenty to get excited about from his left wing post.
As one of only two Italians to begin the match, the other being
