Media Prediction: 17th
: £8,059 p/w
Squad Wage Bill
: £7,754 p/w
Key New Signings:Giuseppe Imburgia (D/WBL)
- my first signing and one I'm pleased with. Should add strength and experience to the backline.
Roberto Biserni (DR/WBR/DM/MC)
- on the other flank we have more experience and importantly a touch of versatility. Biserni operates best as a wing back but as age catches up to him I can see him moving into midfield.
Rok Bozic (DM/CM)
- a fantastic name welcomes the half Slovenian, half Italian. He will literally be the "rock" of our midfield and I expect him to lead by example in there. He'll be the central CM of three.
Giorgio Natale (ST/AMC)
- I'm really excited by this kid. Found him loitering in the free transfers as a 16 year old with promise. He'll be the trequartista in my midfield and will have the freedom to express himself. Youthful exuberance should never be doubted!
Antonio Montella (ST)
- spent a fortune on loyalty fees to get him to agree to a move to Novese, but I have a feeling he'll be worth it. He looks very good for this level.
Riccardo Innocenti (ST)
- joining Montella is the new captain of the club, Innocenti. He is a big brute of a target man and I'm hoping will add another dimension to our forward line.
All in all I signed 12 players all on free transfers. I have shipped out 13 with likely more to go. We'll have a thin squad so it's going to be vital to avoid injuries. If we do I'm hoping for a good season.
