Titolo: Lazio's 2010-2011 Season
Inserito da: frontwards - 15 Ago 2010, 21:07
with less than two weeks left until the start of the season i thought i'd open this little space for us to discuss and exchange opinions, regardless of how 'maccheronico' or not your english may be, about the happenings of our beloved Lazio.
this is a place to talk about matches, results (hopefully many good ones this season), transfers, injuries (hopefully we'll keep this stat to a minimum).
for those of you living outside of italy let us know what the press is saying about us, what the reactions to our results are, how you live matchday (by this i mean...do you belong to a Lazio club? are you forced to find a decent internet stream to be able to watch the match? etc.). i say this because as someone who lived away from rome for over 10 years i understand how difficult and many times painful it can be to have to support the team from a distance...but you are, just as those of us lucky enough to be able to go to the matches on sunday, an integral part of this club and what makes it so special.
hoping that we can celebrate many successes together this season i leave you with a big FORZA LAZIO.

Alright, we'll give it a try.
For me (I live in France) it's been 100% streaming with very vew exceptions.
I got myself organised early on and I must have missed a game or two at most.
Unless I decided to skip intentionally.
Not many comments on Lazio here this year yet.
Yesterday I watched Chelsea and the studio guest was Ousmane Dabo, sadly looking for a team in France.
The words "Eat quietly" came to mind.  :D

I will try to help you keep this thread alive.  ;)

the fact that there hasn't been much action on this part of the forum is one of the reasons that pushed me to join...and of course the fact that i adore our team (and this site of course!).
thanks for the support tara', i was hoping you'd be quick to jump on this one.

I think I met Giorgio Chinaglia at the farmer market, he was selling Italian cheese using the pseudonym Franky Pallazza. Pretty sure about that.

BTW, I see real eagles and will try to bump your thread :)

i feel your pain! i lived in the states (the midwest) for a long time. . .but waking up early to listen to the match (it was still the era of dial-up internet connections  :shock:) was imperative.
thanks for your support. i do truly believe that having people share how they live the team from a distance is an added value not only to this forum, but also to Lazio fans in general and our Club (especially considering what the atmosphere at the stadium has been these past few years).

Hey,

I can easily feel your problem with streamings and so on, as I am currently living in Rwanda and my only solution is to listen in through the radio podcast, if it works. Even if I am going to attempt a shot at an Italian restaurant here and see if I  can arrange something with the owner and his Rai International :D

Cheers and Forza Lazio

We'll what I can get out of it. He can be of any team but that one, even if it won't change much on the game to be shown as Rai International decides which go live. Therefore, as the last solution,  there is the old podcast with Radio Rai :D or more specialized radio stations

Hello. Just noticed the thread so I thought I may as well join in. I can consider myself lucky as i can watch all matches via a sky contract (legit), subscribed with a genuine Italian address (my brother), so with the exception of some Coppa Italia matches my son (a true laziale) and me can enjoy all of it, I am actually getting impatient for the debut in Genoa.

I suppose I'm the luckiest so far in that I live in Rome and just got my season ticket renewed. I just got back from a week in my native Ireland and had missed out on any internet updates, so you can immagine my thrill today to find out Ledesma signed, we got Roque too, Hernanes had a great debut and the shitbags lost the Super Cup final (yet again!). Happy days all round. Wishing us all a much better season this year, and I'll do my best to contribute to this thread as often as possible.

ciao for now

it's great to see more and more of you joining into the discussion.
today we got some great news with the contract renewal of Cristian and the signing of Roque...looks like we're going to have some serious fun this season! Congrats to Pres. Lotito and Tare because this summer they are truly delivering the goods (and a prophet  :))
only 120 hours to go until our first match...hopefully sampdoria will have a tough one tonight (and 1 or 2 light injuries on their side wouldn't hurt  :D)
keep on writing, sharing your opinions/ideas and of course SFL.

hey everyone...
today the official Lazio webpage was 'remodeled' . i wanted to get your reactions on it, do you think it looks much different? are you pleased, disappointed?
like i said on the italian part of the forum i think it's definitely a step in the right direction (the old version was an absolute disaster), but i'm very perplexed by the fact that there's no option to navigate it in other languages. not like there needs to be a myriad of languages (i was looking at the milan one and they actually have both a uk and usa version-that's not what i'm asking for here), but i think that an italian/english/chinese combination (especially considering we were in china about a year ago for the supercup and it has the potential to be such a big market for the team) to start off, and eventually adding arabic is absolutely necessary.
it's difficult for me to understand why in 2010 a Lazio fan who might have difficulty with the italian language cannot keep updated on club news through its offical page.
i hope this is a start...a work in progress...an additional tool that'll show the rest of the world the glory of this club.
ok, i'm done with my mini rant.
t minus 48 hours until the start of our season!

i agree, but hopefully Reja can use these few weeks to go back to the drawing board and work with the team especially considering that with the end of the transfer market the squad is now set until january.
the physical and mental drop the team had in the second half against sampdoria is something he needs to work on with the players.

Hi to everyone.
Glad to see this forum section so active, I guess it's time for me to start over writing some bs.  :D
Even though I live near Rome I can barely attend the stadium twice a year, due to job-related problems.

Anyway, still 15 hours 'till our next match against Bologna, hoping Reja will find the optimal settings for the defence line-up and the prophet's position as well.

(While I'm typing Cesena scored a goal against Milan...  :lol: )

The new official website is way better than the old one, still not that good though; as frontwards said, let's hope it'll get better soon, time will tell.

C'mon Lazio!

back from the match and all that is going through my head is the elementary thought 'YES, F'ING YES!'...these are the matches the team had a difficult time getting a win in last season and they did it today.
climate at the stadium (other than the 31 degrees there were here in Rome today) was surreal (but hey, what's new right?). i was particularly amused at the 'lpdm' when we were up 2-0   :roll:
amazing Mauri performance overall, great the Rocchi goal...and my personal plea to Maurito: START PLAYING FOR THE TEAM, THEY NEED YOU AND WE AS FANS DO AS WELL!
now work work work during the week and let's go get a positive result in Florence on satruday!

Yet....   :poof:
Titolo: Re:Lazio's 2010-2011 Season
Inserito da: mrmoto - 19 Ott 2010, 11:47
I've been meaning to post something on these English pages for a couple of weeks now, but I just haven't had the time. I'm bilingual, in the sense that I grew up with two mother tongues, but all my schooling was done in English, and as such I find it easier to write in English. And yet I keep struggling in Italian. So here's my tuppence:

To say that I'm delighted is a rather obvious statement. I don't want to sound smug either, but I don't really have any apologies to say to anyone. I love everything about the current Lazio, and unlike Tarallo, I don't really think that Lazio are playing ugly football. But I will concede that we (Tarallo and I) probably have very differing standards. I know that we played more offensively under Delio Rossi, but I will trade the harmony of Reja's Lazio to the temperamental times of Delio (to whom I'm very grateful though, it must be said).

What do I like about this Lazio? I've always liked Radu, since he first arrived and before Delio Rossi forgot about him. I like defenders who are comfortable on the ball. Radu and Dias both possess this assuredness by the bucketload. And it seems to be catching on, as Biava has improved a great deal (possibly the only apology I owe is to him, who didn't impress me much last season). Licht has returned to his pre-Ballardini form, and Cavanda is a fantastic prospect for the future and present (another wonderful player on the ball). The back four are playing great and conceding very little (2.75 shots per game conceded, best in Serie A). Incidentally, I'm absolutely delighted we sold Kolarov. He was my most berated player last season, ask the poor people who sat next to me at the Olimpico. How many goals did we concede from his side when he was too lazy to return to defend?

Midfield? Well, my avatar has been Mauri since about last April. Never booed him and always insulted those that did. Love Brocchi, what a leader on the pitch. Ledesma is the midfield dam that he's always been; remember when we used to lose every game he didn't play? And Hernanes? Well... speechless.  But I think the secret this year is the abbundance. To those who complain about Matuzalem's absence, I say that right now it suits us to have a player like him who can only play every so often. In his one full game, he was majestic.  And while we keep winning, and thanks to Reja who has instilled a team ethic in his players, those on the bench don't seem to mind too much. Thanks Foggia, Del Nero and Bresciano.

The same is true for up front. Rocchi is being very mature, and long may it last. Floccari is playing fantastically, and Zarate is learning what playing in a team is all about. And Kozak is there when needed.

One last thought on Reja vs Rossi. As I said I'm deeply grateful to Rossi for the wonderful years and the Cup win with him. However, if I have to pick something, I got the feeling that he was sometimes found lacking in his relationship with the players. In particular, I got the idea that he was not very good at giving a player 'bad news'. How often were players dropped, and they went to the press to complain about their relationship with Delio? Well, Reja seems very different. He has instilled a great relationship with the players where everyone feels part of the project in hand. This is the little that I can see from outside, and I know that success is the best medicine, but the atmosphere around Camp Lazio is the most serene it's been in a while.

And it's even improving inside the stands of the Stadio Olimpico. The much berrated Tessera del Tifoso seems to have helped clean up the Curva Nord a little. I'm not sure how much this is just a surface situation, but things are much, much better than last season. We'll have to wait and see what happens when we hit a bad patch.

Thanks and Forza Lazio :D

the fact that this season we can hold our own against the "big" teams is good enough for me, rebuilding a team takes time and now we're finally starting to see the fruits of it.
we are still second!
on sunday we can, and will, beat udinese!
