First, there was La Magicast. Greg, Julian and Alex took on a weekly podcast to discuss their beloved club Roma from a variety of angles: players, match previews, ratings, and season-in-review, just to name a few. After a while, an idea was planted: what if, out of La Magicast, a site could spring up, being updated multiple times a day with content about Roma?
Over many months, out of this basis, after contacting fellow writers who shared a similar desire and passion, RomaJournal was born.
“We got the tools, we got the talent!”
RomaJournal consists of the following writers, all of whom are passionate Roma tifosi:
Ross is a technical journalist by day and an avid Roma fan by night (or morning). Ross has followed Roma since he was 12, when he stumbled upon a Roma-Lazio match and was mesmerized by the passionate Giallorossi support. His Twitter handle is @bosco08.
Picture it: New Jersey, 1982. A wide-eyed 9 year old boy watching this dynamo of a player patrolling the wing for gli Azzurri. Bruno Conti was that dynamo and becoming a fan of his was an intro into become a fan of Roma-a trend that has never waned. You can follow the now fully-grown man @gregc9.
