In the last few days the city has been trembling with excitement. No one speaks about anything else: there is only Roma v Liverpool, in the bars and in the restaurants, among friends or on the metro. It will be a great celebration of sport with an extraordinary atmosphere: trust me, the Olimpico will be an inferno. Men's Majestic St. Louis Cardinals #27 Brett Cecil Cream Flexbase Authentic Collection MLB JerseyFor Roma it is Andrelton Simmons Authentic Jersey only their second time in a European Cup semi-final, and therefore something historic: the climate inside the stadium will be even hotter and even more fiery than what we saw against Barcelona. Roma are famous around the world for their fans: they have passion, love and heart. I witnessed it and it was something wonderful. Against Liverpool you will see the same total support for the team: Tony Watson Authentic Jersey the stadium will be completely clad in red and yellow, the fans will sing for 90 minutes and then it is up to the team to do the business. The Roma fans are amazing. Even today, 15 years later, they stop when they see me and start to sing the song they sang about me when I was playing: it is incredible. They stop me everywhere, even at restaurants when I am out eating. They still salute me every day. They were the first fans to make a banner saying “I love you” to a team in the 80s and there is an incredible passion for the players who play for the team. The players are also fans of the team so there is total love between the supporters and the players and you will see the result of that against Liverpool on Wednesday night. Everyone here believes that Roma can get through, just as they should. The two late goals at Anfield have given everyone hope and I believe too. They have to play the perfect game, just like they did against Barcelona because Liverpool are better than Barça in my opinion. If everything goes our way then Roma can do it. In the capital everyone is hoping and believing. Liverpool, of course, have a former Roma player in their team, Mohamed Salah, and he will get a great reception. He did so well in the Roma shirt and got close to the fans. He had to leave because of finances and he will be greeted like a champion on his return to the club. In the Premier League, with Liverpool, he has taken another step forward: here in Italy he played a bit deeper and did not score as many goals. As far as I am concerned he can win the Ballon d’Or: he is a fantastic player and it will all come down to who wins the Champions League. If he does that, then the Ballon d’Or could well go to Momo. As far as the home team is concerned I think Daniele De Rossi could be decisive. He is the heart of this Roma side and a romanista, the fans’ hero. Against Barcelona he had an amazing assist and also scored from the penalty spot to make people believe the amazing comeback was on. One additional thing with him is that he can animate the fans at the Olimpico. Then we shouldn’t forget about Edin Dzeko, of course. I have played at Anfield against Liverpool and that is an experience that is impossible to forget. The fans sing for 90 minutes and they are extraordinary. I brought my kids because you have to live that experience. At the Olimpico the fans are further away but the Roma supporters are just as good as the Liverpool ones. You will see the colours, how much heart they put into it and the choreography of the tifo to help the team. The Olimpico will be an extraordinary sight for this incredible night of Champions League football.
Like the hapless Brian Stimpson, so splendidly portrayed by John Cleese in the 1980s farce Clockwise, most football fans can take the despair; it’s the hope they cannot stand. With only three or four fixtures left to play in this season’s Premier League, fans of West Bromwich Albion, Stoke City and Southampton can almost certainly feel the Womens Brian Westbrook Jersey headmaster’s anguish. Most are Womens Mike Conley Jersey well equipped to deal with the trauma of relegation to the Championship but it is the possibility of avoiding it that drives them to the brink of madness. NFL Nike Men's LaDainian Tomlinson Green Home Elite Jersey - #21 New York JetsFor West Brom fans, the agony is almost over. Almost but not quite. It is still mathematically possible for them to stay in the top flight but their mini-rage against the dying of the light almost certainly constitutes too little too late. Nothing less than successive wins in their final three matches will suffice and even that will be good enough only in the unlikely event Swansea fail to take more than one point from 12 available. Men's Majestic Milwaukee Brewers #5 Jonathan Villar Replica White Alternate Cool Base MLB JerseyIt is a scenario so implausible that all West Brom players and supporters seem to have resigned themselves to their fate and are at peace with it. All but those dreamy optimists who remember Swansea lost four league games on the spin once before this season and are not so great that it is beyond them do it again. Supporters of Stoke and Southampton have more reasons for optimism. Four points adrift with three and four matches to play respectively, there is enough recent precedent to suggest they have every chance of clinging on to their top-tier status. Few would argue Sunderland are the most poorly run club in the English league but before a slide into League One that has been as ignominious as it was inexorable, they did claw their way to safety in successive seasons from some pretty dire situations. Seven points adrift with six games to play under Gus Poyet in 2014, Sunderland looked doomed only to win four of their final five matches to drag themselves from the foot of the table and send Norwich down instead. It was the club’s third consecutive flirtation with the drop and Poyet was adamant it was an experience he had no wish to repeat the following season. “I don’t want another seven months like this,” he said, hailing what he labelled as one of his greatest achievements in football. He need not have worried – sacked the following March, he was replaced by Dick Advocaat, who went on to mastermind another escape despite his side being down among the dead men with four matches to go. In the past 20 Premier League seasons, teams in the relegation places around this time of year have managed to extricate themselves on seven different occasions. Those precariously perched above the drop zone will need little reminding that Wigan stayed up at the expense of Birmingham in 2011, despite trailing them by four points with as many games to go. With the same number of matches left three years previously, Bolton and Fulham were also adrift but had enough about them to rally and survive. A year before, in 2007, West Ham performed the most unlikely of Houdini acts with Carlos Tevez in the unlikely role of glamorous assistant. Their survival, courtesy of four consecutive wins culminating in a final-day victory at Harry Giles Jersey Old Trafford, prompted the disappearance of Sheffield United from the top flight and would ultimately cost them £25.5m in fines and compensation. Chump change which would have been cheap at twice the price compared with the money on offer for staying in the Premier League. Before West Ham’s heroics, Bradford had pulled off one of the most impressive feats of football escapology, ending a run of 10 matches without a win in 2000 to prevail in three of last four – the final one against Liverpool – to send Wimbledon plummeting through the trapdoor. A season previously, Southampton stayed up courtesy of the kind of late-season rally – two draws followed by three wins – in which they and Coventry famously specialised at the time. If they are to pull off a similar feat this time around, their players could do worse than summon the spirit of Matt Le Tissier, Claus Lundekvam and Jason Dodd.
The EFL has upped the ante in the continuing debate over safe standing, insisting it can work with the government to “bring it to fruition”. #10 Nike DeMar DeRozan Ash NBA - Backer Toronto Raptors Pullover HoodieThe Football League has long supported sections of stadiums being converted to allow fans to stand throughout matches. But a new survey of supporters, to be compiled before the end of the season, aims to build on a mandate already provided by Football League clubs. While the Premier League has described the topic as “complex and nuanced” the EFL’s chief executive, Shaun Harvey, is now calling on the government to change its position on safe standing. Youth Nike Chicago Bears #38 Adrian Amos Limited Olive/Gold Salute to Service NFL Jersey“The EFL would like to see current legislation reviewed by the government and ultimately amended,” Harvey said in announcing the League’s new approach. “We would like clubs to have the opportunity to provide standing accommodation to their supporters at all matches played in the Championship, League One and League Two, should they wish to.” The EFL’s new Kendall Graveman Authentic Jerseyemphasis on giving clubs the choice is an attempt to win the approval of Tracey Crouch, the sports minister. Crouch recently rejected a request by West Bromwich Albion to test safe standing and called the clamour for its introduction the opinion of a “vocal minority”. While polling suggests that only 15% of fans would want to stand themselves, Harvey believes a clear majority are in favour of having the option available to their club. The new survey, conducted in association with the Football Supporters’ Federation, will look substantiate this point. Harvey’s instinct, however, appears to be supported by the success of a parliamentary petition in favour of safe standing which this week passed 100,000 signatures and will now be debated in the House of Commons. “We appreciate the pressure the sports minister is under and caution is natural,” Harvey said. “We need to establish an alliance, otherwise a disproportionate amount of the responsibility will fall on her. A partnership approach will commence with our survey, to demonstrate that those who attend fixtures want to see the change and be offered a choice, even if they still choose to be seated. “It’s not a new message, but it’s about structuring our approach to safe standing; putting us at the front door with evidence that this is what the majority of fans want delivered. What we’re actually doing is starting the campaign to bring it to fruition.” Under current legislation, clubs in League One Allen Robinson Authentic Jersey and Two that do not have fully seated stadia are allowed to let supporters stand. But since the Taylor report, clubs in the top two divisions must have all-seated stadiums. An exception to this rule is that a club promoted to the Championship for the first time is granted a three-year grace period in which to convert the facilities. This means that, for example, Burton Albion currently have a standing terrace in the Championship. Harvey represents the 72 League clubs beneath the Premier League and says he has had their mandate to pursue safe standing since 2014. He also acknowledges that there is more flexibility to make such adaptations in the Football League, where average attendance hovers at around 60% of Womens Lorenzo Alexander Jersey stadium capacity. In the Premier League this figure is more than 90% and some top-flight clubs are understood to be unwilling to sacrifice current revenue in order to create a standing section. Other concerns over the implementation of safe standing include whether the allocation should be made available for away as well as home fans and what to do about persistent standing in areas that would remain designated as being seated. The survey launches online 27 April and will run Mika Zibanejad Authentic Jersey until 10 May.
