Lets take a look at the most disappointing teams in Serie A this season:
AS Roma: It seems like a long time ago that AS Roma was nipping at the heels of Inter Milan for a shot at taking home the Scudetto. The club strangely started off this season with a draw and 5-1 loss to Cagliari. In fact Roma didn’t win a game until late September and it happened to be against Inter. Currently they sit in 14th place and have yet to win a single road match this year.
Fiorentina:Two years ago Fiorentina was a top four team that was considered a threat to win the Scudetto. It’s amazing how fast a team can fall and after an 11th place finish last season the club is currently in 15th place due to a recent surge up the board. Gilardino is beginning to find his form with 3 goals and bad boy Mutu is expected to return to the team this weekend.
Bari:Not a big name squad by any stretch of the imagination, but last season they were one of the most surprising clubs with a top five defensive effort and 10th place results on the board. So far this season that defense has evaporated and the club currently is tied for last in the league in goals allowed. Currently in 18th place it appears last year’s new boys might be heading back to a familiar league next season.
Inter Milan: It’s harsh to have a top four team on the list, but currently 4 points out of first place is already off the expected pace. Rafa accepted a job that demands a lot out of him, but they should eventually seize the top spot in the league. After 8 matches the club is already a match and a half back though.
