FILE - In this July 26, 2014 file photo, AS Roma's Francesco Totti kicks for a goal during an exhibition soccer match against Manchester United at Mile High Stadium in Denver, Co. For Italian football fans, merely mentioning the word "scudetto" _ league title _ in association with a favorite club is considered tabu. The theory goes that it's better left unsaid until your squad actually raises the trophy. Yet recently, the word has begun popping up in animated discussions inside Rome's myriad coffee bars and impassioned sports-talk radio stations. The talk, and not only in the capital, is that Roma can put together a serious challenge for the Serie A title this season. Three years after takeover by US owners, Roma is expected to contend for the Serie A title. (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley, file)
