There was a calamity of errors by the team at times so the score was fair. Looked like they had Hickey playing a bit deeper as he wasn't involved much going forward down the wing that I saw.

 

A learning experience for their entire team today not just Hickey. Hopefully they don't slip into the danger zone and struggle to get out it.

Next game Lazio away Saturday 7.45pm.

If Lazzari is fit then he'll be in for a long 90 minutes.

Can only learn from mistakes. 

 

1st goal he seemed to be miles away from Berardi. 3rd goal got caught snoozing, wasn't even goal side. 

4th goal he seemed to give Berardi (I think) way too much space to play a killer ball behind the Bologna defence which led to the low cross and OG. 

 

Had a bit of a lesson if truth be told.

Berardi is a brilliant player to be fair, it’s crazy that no one bigger has ever picked him up(yet).

He is so young to be playing at this level and will take him a good few years to get up to speed.  Once he does he will be a real asset.

I am obviously slightly biased but ...

 

He was given a lot of responsibility when Bologna had a corner as he was one of the two left to defend a break - he did that well.

 

He was in good position when the corner was taken, then there was a horrible sliced clearance as he was moving out (as he should) and it became a free header.

 

Noticeably after that he was marking at the edge of the box for future Sass corners - maybe he should have beforehand as well! 

 

As said earlier it’s part of his learning but getting the 90 minutes was a bonus for him.

 

Bologna haven’t kept a clean sheet since February. ... no wonder when you see the second goal.

 
 

Turns out it was last September since they had a clean sheet.

Always going to be a learning curve playing in a top league with a relatively modest team. Ask Gareth Bale

Indeed, he is. That's the level he's up against in Serie A. Got a bit of a lesson today.

Good chance for ssnsonne to put in Hickey but chooses to ignore him and make a shit pass forward. Didn't want to dent his ego by letting the new 18 year old upstart out do him with a goal

Tidy performance first half by Aaron Hickey.

 

Lazio mainly playing down the other wing whether that is just what they do.

Decent half.  No glaring mistakes.  Keep it up they might get a clean sheet.  Looking like an edgy 1-0 Lazio win.

Decent enough first half for him but probably in for a much tougher second as Lazio hooked their right winger and brought on Lazzari just before half time.

1-0 Lazio. Defensive **** up from Danilo, rocket of a shot from Luis Alberto, not really much Hickey could have done.

Lazio still mostly playing down the left side - opposite side to Hickey. 

 

Maybe where they think the weakness is.

Steady, tidy 89 minutes.

Didn't do much in an attacking sense and played it quite safe.

Solid.

 

Playing 4 games in a row is huge abf beyond his 'plan' and I don't think a lot of people get the step up from playing guff like St Mirren and Hibs!

This was Lazio in the  Stadio Olimpico!

I fancy bologna to win 2-1.  If they keep up their progress and forget some of the bad luck that occurred during the Lazio match.

Presumably in the 100+ year history of calcio 2 ex Hearts players face each other in a  competitive match.

 

(Kyle Lafferty is s bench warmer for Reggina)

Not sure how the call up is going to work given there's a 14 day quarantine for arrivals from Italy. I thought maybe sports people were exempt but then Popescu had to quarantine before he could train with us, so I guess not.

Hickey is in the elite sports bubble so he will be exempt from quarantine. Don't think Popescu was training when we signed him so he had to quarantine.

Aaron finally gets a u-21 call up

Aye seemingly he's impressed the SFA now that he's moved to Italy

In the 4 games he's played there. That's highly unusual that a non-OF Scottish player should fall outwith the gaze of the Scottish national teams until they move to the OF or away from Scotland.

I think that was his best performance yet...getting braver and going forward more. Very assured 

Even Sinisa Mihajlovic was wearing a tartan bunnet!

We had any more of the Bologna fans on since he's been playing? Would like to know what their fans think of him. Real shame we won't get to see him against Napoli.

Not sure if Aaron will be allowed to play for U21's as some local Italian authorities have banned players from leaving the country to play internationals 

 

Bonus for Scotland as at least 4 of the Serbian team are out

Milonkovic Savic Lazio is the main one 

Other clubs i have heard included as Sassullo Fiorentina and Inter (Kolarov)
