Roma Crushed At White Hart Lane

Roma striker Vucinic-headinhandsFluent play by Spurs and poor defending by Roma ultimately led to a 5-0 drubbing of the Giallorossi. 
New recruits outperform for Tottenham including, Bentley, Giovani Dos Santos and Modric.  
At times Tottenham looked more like Roma we all know and love. It was only two seasons ago the club from the Eternal City was humiliated 7 – 1  by Manchester United at Old Trafford. Mistakes in defence by Philip Mexes, Daniele De Rossi and keeper Artur aided in Tottenham’s triumph and left Italian fans thinking what is it with English teams and Roma. Manager Spalletti when questioned on the performance explained it as a mental error by team and players he went on to say, “After three years we are still committing the same errors and it’s annoying because we are always trying to find the solutions”

Questions must be raised as to off-season preparations, and lack of new player acquisitions by Roma.
Further delays to reinforce the squad could lead to protests amongst Roma Ultras, tactician Spalletti and especially captain Totti who has already voiced his concerns.
