Rudi Garcia: Accentuating the positives at Roma

The Giallorossi were held to a goalless draw at home to Cagliari on Monday, a result that prevented them from reclaiming the top spot in Serie A.

The outcome was Roma's third-straight draw and left Garcia's side in second place, one point adrift of league leaders Juventus.

"We did well against Cagliari," Garcia said to Gazzetta dello Sport. "The important thing is that when we don't win, we don't concede goals and hence, we don't lose.

"We played a good match and we didn't get three points because (Cagliari goalkeeper Vlada) Avramov had a fantastic game.

"Our main problem has been that some of our players are not at the same physical level as others.

"(Daniele) De Rossi was only able to train with us for one session as he was involved with the Italian national team last week and the same goes for other players.

"When there is an international break , there tends to be a drop in form when returning to the competition and that affects the performance of the team."

Roma travel to Bergamo to face Atalanta on Sunday.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
