The first day of my holidays I arrived in Rome Italy. After food and a rest I found a pub to watch the first match of the day: Colombia-Greece. I was delighted to be among many lively and happy Colombians in a pub, watching with joy (and undeniably a bit of envy) the yellow wave in Belo Horizonte. If anything, people will love the Colombian team because of their fans.
Liverpool hope they can finally offload Alberto Aquilani back to Serie A after informing the
Italian he is not part of Brendan Rodgers' plans.
Aquilani did not return to Merseyside with the rest of the Liverpool squad when they flew home from
their North America tour on Saturday.
Instead, he headed to Rome to see if a deal could be struck with numerous Serie A sides, one of
which is believed to be Fiorentina.
The long-anticipated deal is now complete: Michael Bradley is officially a member of legendary
Seria A side AS Roma. Coming off a fantastic first season in the league with Chievo Verona, the
Roman team paid $4.6 million for the services of the 24-year-old U.S. international.
Bradley made 34 appearances for Chievo in his opening year in Italy, earning the nickname "The
General" for his work in midfield.
I've been a Roma fan since the fourth grade. In the midst of an enthralling elementary school
history class, my parents whisked me away to Rome for a 10-day jaunt in the Eternal City, and
something in me never left. While visiting the piazzas and the ancient landmarks and being doted on
by accommodating Italian restauranteurs and doing whatever else it is that 10-year-olds do in
Someone with more Photoshop skills needs be on the task right about now.
With the concerns of racism in Polkraine during the Euros running long in the media, a number of
players have come out with their thoughts on the situation. As ever, Mario Balotelli's are worth
several photos, a graphic novel and a legal consultation.
Italian striker Mario Balotelli has vowed to "kill" racist fans during this summer's Euro 2012
tournament if they rear their ugly heads towards any minority players. Balotelli has been the
subject of horrific racist incidents in the past, and has cautioned any potential racist fans and
scene-makers to stay at home.
Following on from the whirlwind success of his first guide book to Rome, "Let's Talk About Rome", Francesco Totti has finally gotten round to penning a sequel, unleashing "In giro per Roma col Capitano" ("Around Rome with The Captain") on the world with the front cover seeing the Roma legend mocked up as a cheerful local cabby.

Verona defender Emanuele Pesoli has gone on hunger strike over the three-year ban handed to him

The 31-year old has also chained himself to the front gate of the FIGC headquarters in Rome in
protest, telling the Italian press:
"I am hurt by the sentence and I would like to confront those who accuse me.
This short commercial for AS Roma takes football marketing to a deeper level then it usually goes. Francesco Totti is the film noir-style protagonist, captured looking moody in the build-up to the Rome derby against Lazio as he narrates his relationship with a veteran Roma fan.

After the tumultuous transfer window and international break, it was time for the annual squad photos to be taken, which suitably changes according to new player and staff arrivals or departures. As a result, this can be a matter of ...
According to the Italian media, Francesco Totti is on the eve of launching his very own city guide, in good old-fashioned book form, to his beloved home entitled 'E mo te spiego Roma', which, near as we can fathom, translates as 'Let's Talk About Rome' or thereabouts.
Liverpool has accepted an offer from Fiorentina for out-of-favour midfielder Alberto Aquilani.
The 28-year-old had been expecting to be given a chance under new manager Brendan Rodgers after his
failed loan spell at AC Milan, but the club accepted an undisclosed fee over the weekend.
Aquilani did not travel back to England with the rest of the Liverpool squad after their tour of
North America, and has instead made for Rome, where he will meet with Fiorentina to discuss a
transfer in the next 24 hours.
No player currently on the Liverpool squad divides opinion more than the enigmatic Italian
Alberto Aquilani. Some see his intricate passing, silky touch and vision as exactly what Liverpool
need to break down the more stubborn defences we so often struggle against. Others see an injury
prone player on huge wages who's too lightweight to make it in the Premier League and would rather
be sipping macchiato's in Rome than trotting about Melwood on a cold Winter's morning.
Michael Bradley is now a member of Roma and with the move comes added pressure for the most
American of Serie A clubs. As Clemente Lisi explained in an article earlier this year, Roma is
owned by American Thomas DiBenedetto. An American owner, a US National Team player, and a fight for
respectability in 2012-13.
There's news in the Italian press today that Roma are interested in taking Newcastle's Davide
Santon to Rome. Davide Santon in action for Newcastle last season Roma were one of the other clubs
after the 7 times capped Italian International last summer, when Newcastle were successful in
bringing the lad to Tyneside.
Manchester City's players had special â‚¬1,000 mattresses shipped in to their Austrian pre-season
base to ensure they get a comfortable bed as they plot to defend their Premier League title. The
Hotel Klosterbrau, in Seefeld, had 54 high-density mattresses hand-made in Rome and imported for
City's visit at the club's request.
We continue our summer series of historical video compilations this afternoon with another of
the giants of English football, Liverpool FC. Liverpool started the 1962/63 back in the First
Division after eight years away, during which they finished in third place in he Second Division
four times and fourth place twice back in the days when promotion and relegation were limited to
just two clubs each before winning the Second Division title in 1962.
Liverpool target Bojan Krkic has committed his immediate future to Roma amid reports of further
interest from the Premier League.
Krkic, who moved to Roma in the summer of 2011, endured a mixed first season in Serie A, managing
just seven goals in 33 league outings.
The former Barcelona forward had been tipped to follow recently-departed manager Luis Enrique out
of the Stadio Olimpico exit, but he insists he wants to continue his progress in the Italian
capital, despite mooted interest from Liverpool.
Despite the loss of Mario Balotelli and Lionel Messi to minor injuries, Italy facing South American rivals Argentina in Rome headlines a busy day of international soccer.
Most teams around the globe are participating in friendly matches today ahead of key World Cup qualifiers in early September, though Russia is playing at Northern Ireland today in a qualifying match that was made up due to a frozen pitch last March.
Yeah, we're sucking on it going on 7 years friendo. We know that many of you, like us, have decided not to attend tonight's friendly at BMO Field. If you visit our corner of the TFC universe regularly then you are aware of our thoughts on mid-season friendlies and are as sick of hearing them as we are sick of the club continuing down this greedy path.
Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain has arrived at Rome's Fiumicino airport as he makes his way to Napoli for a medical. The Argentina international was thought to be Arsenal's top target for the summer, but a widely expected deal never materialised. Instead, the 26-year-old looks set to ply his trade in Serie A.
There's no real team news coming out of White Hart Lane just yet so we assume that there are no new injury concerns following Thursday night's game in Rome. One enforced change from last Saturday will come as Emmanuel Adebayor starts his three match ban but will AVB look to keep a more attacking formation?
