Who saw this coming?

In a spell of managerial disasters in which Roma signed and fired five coaches in a span of three years, they’ve finally struck gold with former Lille coach, Rudi Garcia.

The sale of Erik Lamela provided Roma with the funds to completely revamp their squad, a decision that sees them leading Juventus, Napoli and the Milan clubs in Serie A.

Totti and co. flexed their muscle two weeks ago in a 5-0 ravaging of hapless Bologna. A 2-0 victory in the Derby della Capitale (Lazio-Roma) only serves to confirm their stunning season.

In a brutal exploitation of their complete supremacy, 10-man Roma dismissed Inter Milan at Milan in ruthless fashion, sending three goals into the back of the net.

Francesco Totti has turned back the sands of time, defying his age by recording three goals and six assists in six games. His integral role in Roma this season positions him well for an Italy recall for the World Cup.

Read this: seven games; seven wins; 20 goals scored; one goal conceded; almost three goals a game. 

Arsenal and Fiorentina outcasts Gervinho and Ljajic have proved to be invaluable additions to the club the way for the Italian capital, combining for six goals.
