If you’re not following Rolando Bianchi – and who could blame you – you might not have noticed his arrival at Pro Vercelli. I worried for Rolly; he didn’t seem to have settled at Perugia, so this didn’t seem the most obvious move.

I’ve been involved in conversations about Pro since his arrival, and the signing wasn’t the most obvious one for the club either. Happily for both, he has started well.

Indeed, he opened the scoring against high-flying Hellas Verona, though the Bianche Casacche found themselves pegged back late on in a 1-1 draw.

Five games is an admittedly small sample size (and there may be other aspects at play – Bianchi is unlikely to be solely responsible for the defensive improvement) but I thought it worth mentioning.
