Totti tells it like it is

The usual pre-match wind-ups have started early after Alex Ferguson (accidentally) left Francesco Totti off his list of danger men for the upcoming Roma v Man Utd game. The Giallorosso skipper responded with some fine lines. Hopefully, he will live up to his statement that he would make Sir Alex remember his name.

He looked in fine form - as the whole Roma team did - in the weekend draw with Milan. But it was his lines on the Premiership in general that I loved. It reminded me of Bobo Vieri when he said he would like to play in England - when he wanted to collect his pension.

"I've never liked English football," said France'. "Even if there are some great players there. I don't like England either because the weather is gloomy."

Take that Fergie! Time for a Totti tripletta...

Ach old Fergie is the supreme wind-up merchant going back as far as his days in charge of Aberdeen when he was never out of the papers complaining about a west coast conspiracy.

The best place to respond to him is on the pitch.

Great comment from Totti and I completely agree with him. I wonder what the English press will have to say about it...

I'm really hoping he puts on a show on Wednesday because he must be one of the most hated players in the English media and they don't appreciate his talents at all. He must be one of the most underrated players in the World, can't wait for the match :)

I'm with Princess. I'm at work but getting nothing done. I'm taking off down to the beach for a kebab for lunch. Adrenalin and excitement is kicking in already and there are still 14 hours to go!
FORZA MAGICA ROMA!!!
