OK am i the only one who found that disturbingromeking said:The last news are not good.........The italian CT hopes in a quickly recovery,but the world cup remain uncertain............It is a bad bad thing for US
Alucard you can see his spit in your ass
hey we're not talking about how fair or unfair he is!! maybe he's just a bit unfair but he remanis a top class player and yes, that's absolutely NOT good if he doesn't play the world cup..Alucard said:Oh man totti out of world cup, thats not good. Pity cuz i wanted to see him spit on some more players face.
ditto. I was just saying i miss him spitting, nothing personal suggestin he deserved to be injured. I like totti as player he is one of my favourite. Its sad he got injured like this, because he was in top form and one of main reasons why roma are 4th pushing for champions league place.branyik said:OK am i the only one who found that disturbing
it's not broken I suppose.. they reached the record (there have been milan and bologna doing that before roma, if I don't go wrong) and roma will break it next week if they manage to win again!!Milanista said:Thanks to him, they broke the record of most consecutive wins in Serie A - 10 wins.
So he should be fine for the World Cup. 2 months wont be that big of a deal. In a way it could work for him. He could look at it like having 2-3months rest before a big tournament.Roma boss Luciano Spalletti insists that Francesco Totti is in good heart after ankle surgery which may rule him out for the rest of the season. “He is absolutely fine,” he said.
Totti was operated on in hospital last night as surgeons realigned the left ankle ligaments that had been ripped away from the tibia bone and inserted a plate to support a fibula that was fractured after a tackle from Richard Vanigli during his side’s 1-0 win over Empoli yesterday.
Ten screws were also inserted to stabilise the bone as Totti has been given a recuperation time of approximately two-and-a-half months.
Roma have made it clear that they are furious with the result of what they perceive to have been a constant targeting of their captain’s notoriously weak ankles over recent weeks and have demanded more be done to punish tackles from behind.
However, Totti himself appears to be putting a brave face on the situation.
“He is absolutely fine,” said Spalletti. “I thought I would find him bitter and sad but he has given everyone who has gone to see him heart.
“He’s telling continuous jokes like on Sunday Totti will be playing because his son, Cristian, will take his place.
“Obviously for us he is a great loss, but it has to be said that the lads have managed to get by without him even when his personality has been missing from the line-up,” he added.
Next weekend’s Rome derby is delicately poised. Lazio achieved a shock win over high-flying Fiorentina on Sunday and will be high on confidence going into a game in which they are determined to prevent a Totti-less Roma from setting a new League record of 11 straight wins.
“I hope that the fans play even more of a part because the side needs their support now,” continued Spalletti. “I am convinced that we will show our worth and play well even without a key player like Francesco.”
The Roma tactician added that Totti even had words of encouragement for the architect of his downfall, Vanigli, who committed the foul that felled the Italy international.
“He gave him words of support, which surprised Vanigli,” he said. “I spoke to him as well but I could tell at the end of the game that he was upset about what he had done.”
The first signs are that Totti will recover in time for the World Cup this summer, as the operation went well, although he may well have to play in the competition with a plate still in his leg.
“He is determined to get better,” revealed Spalletti. “The first question he asked was how long the recovery time would be and for this reason, too, I think he will make it.”
yes, you're right.. he also had a broken fibula, unfortunately..Gedtillo said:

All papers say he's got a broken fibula (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fibula) and that it's no less than two months (maybe three) that he'll have to stay away from the pitch.
It's a real pity that some great players are getting injured before the WC... Raúl, Xavi, Valerón, As.Cole, Totti... all had serious injuries this season. Something has to be done.
