First trophy in 6 years, first Coppa Italia in 16

A couple of people have asked me why I didn’t post about this on my blog:

Roma celebrating Coppa Italia win

The answer is simple. The win was expected anyway after the 6-2 drubbing of Inter in Stadio Olimpico. Inter gave us a tough fight though, but it’s a rare event in Football for a team to overcome 4 goals aggregate deficit in the 2nd leg.

Anyhow, Roma deserved the win. Overall, the season has been pretty good for us — 2nd spot in the league, Champions League quarter-finals, Capitano as the Capocannoniere (Serie A top scorer) with 22+ goals and winners of the domestic cup (not to forget that Juve also played in this particular competition). The Old Trafford loss was definitely disappointing, but it would be unfair to label all the hard-work and efforts from the players as futile because of a single night’s below-par performance.

Hopefully, this will be the first trophy of many more to come. Spalletti has a bright future ahead of him if he can only get some fresh blood in summer for leading our attack. The 4-2-3-1 formation really works wonders when used effectively with everyone in good form, but it also has the ability to crumble under pressure if the attacking half isn’t doing its job properly.

Grazie Roma!
