“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.†— Michael Jordan

I didn’t see the match myself as no TV channel in my region was broadcasting it. Yet, this was the most pleasing news that I’ve heard in a while. It also marks the 2nd time we’ve beaten Nerrazurri in three weeks. All I can say now is that Spalleti and his players have learned their lesson from the Old Trafford game, and they definitely had the character and the heart to strike back immediately after such a huge disappointment.

P.S. Inactivity period on my blog again. This time it’s because of the my attempts to compile GNU Octave and on my PC from scratch. Expect to see posts regarding them within the coming week.

Roma crushes Milan

Filed under: Blog — krkhan @ 3:48 pm

Italian Serie A club AS Roma secured its place in the Coppa Italia final as they blew AC Milan out of the competition after a 5-3 aggregate victory in yesterday’s match. Roma will now face the winner of the second-leg match between Inter Milan and Sampdoria on Thursday. Inter is already leading the aggregate score with 3-0.

Roma’s form has been consistently improving over the past few months, and although they’re currently playing without proper strikers, their midfield has proven itself to be one of the strongest in Serie A because of the presence of Perrotta, Mancini, Pizzarro and Totti. The club has got big games coming up now such as the fixtures against Inter and Lyon in February. Roma has also loaned Francesco Tavano and Christian Wilhelmsson from Valencia and Nantes respectively, so Spalletti just has to keep his players focused and they might even break the Inter curse that has been following them for the past two years.
