Season Review: AS Roma

AS Roma

Horncastle: Totti turning the clock back


Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny adds some X-Factor to his wedding

Wojciech Szczesny added a bit of X-Factor to his wedding as the Poland goalkeeper took time to get married before Euro 2016.

Arsenal star Szczesny, on loan at Roma last season, tied the knot with singer Marina Luczenko in Greece over the weekend. And to make the occasion extra special, they drafted in former X-Factor winner James Arthur as their wedding singer.

Judging by the goalkeeper's tweet, it was a big success -- even though the bride apparently had to do some of the work herself.

AS Roma fall short in Serie A again and face difficult summer of uncertainty

Thrashing crosstown rivals Lazio was the high mark in another season of wasted potential for AS Roma.

Having fallen short in Serie A yet again, where do the Giallorossi go from here? Here's a look back at AS Roma's 2015-16 season.

Season in a sentence

A season that started with hopes of Roma's first Scudetto in 15 years fell apart midway through.


Roma are not one of Italy's traditional powers and as such, the struggle for local pride with similarly trophy-starved capital city rivals, Lazio, is what matters for most fans. Not only was the 4-1 drubbing of the Biancoceleste in the "away"...

Higuain heroics mean Roma come up short in fight for second in Serie A

Mohamed Salah was on target as Roma cruised past AC Milan on Saturday.

As expected, Roma's Luciano Spalletti-led revival wasn't enough to snatch for automatic Champions League qualification. Roma went into the weekend knowing that Napoli failing to beat Frosinone would give them the chance to move second on the final day of the Serie A season, but record-breaking Gonzalo Higuain's hat trick meant that the Giallorossi's 3-1 thrashing of a dreadful AC Milan on Saturday night meant nothing. Roma stay third and now have to plan for the final playoff qualification round,...

Roma travel to Milan with dreams of overtaking Napoli for second in Serie A

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti delves into the rumours surrounding Francesco Totti and if he'll still be playing for Roma next season.

With the end of an eventful season in sight, Roma can be fairly satisfied with the end result. Ahead of their match against AC Milan at the San Siro on Saturday, Roma are guaranteed at least third place and the Champions League playoff round. After their midseason meltdown cost Rudi Garcia his job and left the club in the middle of a poisonous fan revolt, that's no bad result.

Should things go their way at the weekend, they could even nip ahead of Napoli and snatch second place -- and automatic...

Radja Nainggolan, Miralem Pjanic shine as Chelsea and Bayern Munich circle

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti delves into the rumours surrounding Francesco Totti and if he'll still be playing for Roma next season.

In the end, Roma's impressive unbeaten run likely won't be enough for them to take Serie A's remaining automatic Champions League qualifying place.

The Giallorossi took that stretch to 16 games with their casual 3-0 beating of Chievo early on Sunday afternoon, but Napoli responded with a 2-1 win at Torino that re-established the two-point gap between the two sides with one game remaining.

While Roma travel to AC Milan next Saturday with a mathematical chance of overtaking Napoli, Maurizio Sarri's...

Roma ready to renew Francesco Totti with second in Serie A still up for grabs

Totti's sparkling end to the season should result in a one-year extension, which should help Roma's positive momentum.

The sun is shining on Francesco Totti and Roma once again. Having had the mother of all arguments, it looked like Italian football's longest love affair was heading for divorce; the club seemed unimpressed with their creaking old companion and in the mood for something new. However the Roma captain has shown in recent weeks that while there may be lines around those old sky blue eyes, there's still a twinkle; that's why Roma have decided to taken him back.
