Oh oh! The usual signs are popping up again. The fights with journalists, the shifting of blame to the players, the never ending excuses. The special one is now the whining one. Jose Mourinho’s Roma stinking up the Olimpico in a horrid first half to succumb to a 4th defeat in 6 in Serie A. We all know that Rui Patricio’s howler in Portugal versus Serbia led to Portugal having to fight again for their Qatar 2022 place. He is error prone and didn’t disappoint here with another special, letting in Hakan’s corner directly between his legs and into the goal.
Among the absentees Mourinho was crying about was Tammy Abraham. Isn’t it ironic that the guy he replaced, and Jose deemed too old fans slow for his team scored Inter’s second. The wing play and interchange was phenomenal from the Nerrazurri finished off with the weaker left foot of Edin Dzeko. Dumfries with his first for the club sealed the three points before half time. The young back 4 of Roma is way too inexperienced for this level of action and it showed. Roma are the leagues top spenders and one wonders if they are spending money on the right players here. Scrutiny falls on the Giolorossi’s scouting system Roma sensibly got tighter defensively in the second half but shots at goal were few and far between. Zaniolo had the best shot that rippled the side netting. Inter move to second spot on the table after Napoli lost at home to an in form Atalanta. Signs are not good for Mourinho .
