... Totti might be out. Christ. He's been injured since before the Man Utd debacle, where he played through his injury with predictable results. He's got a bit better since then but despite sitting out the Atalanta game last weekend he's not right. Sigh. In fairness he's rarely at his best in derby games anyway, I think he almost takes it too much to heart. But that's not the point, he's our bandiere, ce n'abbiamo bisogno.
Lazio fans are flapping about whether they'll be able to put on a decent coreografia or not, what with the new regulations against banners.. I ought to note that since Cragnotti left and the Irriducibili haven't had the funsing he used to supply both directly and indirectly they've not done anything really spectacular in the derby anyway, not at least in comparison to some of their impressive coreografie in the past. If you want to see pictures of Lazio's past coreografie go and google. It'll be a cold day in hell before I post them here.
Anyway the unlovely Achille Serra, prefect of Rome, has announced that he doesn't intend to enforce the anti-striscioni regulations too strictly anyway, so not to worry. Um... the man responsibile for law and order in the capital has publicly announced that he's not going to bother trying to enforce a brand new piece of legislation?!! I mean, the legislation is shit and should never have been created, but that's sort of not the point. I partly think, fair play, you're standing up and pointing out the innate stupidity of the new law. But the government have perhaps right to be a bit pissed off...
luckily a mate is coming over tonight so I shall have some company to distract me from thinking about Sunday all the time. You never know, it might just work.
