  19/12/2011: The Bite - Pleased, Relieved and Frustrated

Last night left me with mixed emotions, I was pleased we came back from 1-0 down and relieved that we didn't lose but as the same time I am frustrated that we failed to get the three points.

In reality it was a decent week, three points against Lecce, the impressive win against Sporting Lisbon meaning progression in the Europa League and yesterday's point against Udinese.

It was crucial not to lose last night, a defeat would've meant a five point gap between ourselves and the Northern Italians, instead it's two points and we have a six point cushion from fifth placed Inter.

Udinese face a tricky tie at home to Juve, so If we can beat Chievo on Wednesday, then we could see find ourselves in the top three going into the New Year.

It has been positive to see goals coming from all over the pitch, Miroslav Klose's been an excellent signing, having scored eight league goals and is fourth in the 'Serie A' goal scoring charts . Skipper Tommaso Rocchi, Senad Lulic and Hernanes have all scored three, Giuseppe Sculli has grabbed two and Djibril Cisse has only got one.

Whilst Cisse's goal return has been disappointing, he has made up for it with his FIVE assists and the GOAL KING Klose has even had three himself.

In the New Year, Lazio have a decent start with an away trip to Siena, followed by welcoming our old friends Hellas Verona in the Coppa Italia before 2012's first home game which is against Atalanta.

The first big test will come on the 22nd January, when the boys head to Milan to take on Inter - Claudio Ranieri's side have started to find form and are now up to fifth after their shocking start to the season.

With the season almost halfway through the season, it's been a positive one - we're in a good position to go for the Scudetto, at worst there is no reason we can't get a Champions League place which would be an incredible achievement. As for the Europa League, the tie against Atletico is tricky but there is no reason we can't get past them, especially with Klose's goals.

Forza Lazio.
