Città di Pontedera
Decided to contiue this save after reading through all of this thread again. Hopefully I will be able to finish the challenge!
Serie A 2017/18:
Could we defend our top 4 position from last year? INDEED!
We won the whole damn thing!! Inters form declined horribly towards the end of the season, culminating in an embarassing loss against Catania in the last league game to win us the Serie A title. The other top teams all had relatively weak seasons, and this combined with our awesome home form of 15 wins and 4 draws in 19 home games saw us snatch the title on the last day.
After last years surprise 4th finish we were now going to establish ourselves in the top. With an economy scrapped due to our new stadium project the summer signings were few.
Last years 4th place finish earned us a spot in the CL-qualifications, but we were utterly destroyed by Fenerbache and instead entered the EURO-cup.
Our EURO-cup adventure ended with a loss against Arsenal in the quarterfinals, but all in all a great first year of continental football.
In the Italian cup we lost in the Semi-final against Reggina who had an awesome season and finished 4th.
The league title saw me join Marcello Lippi in the legends section in the Pontedera hall of fame.
Can't wait for next year when we move into the 23000 seater "Lippi Stadium
Maybe then we can earn some money and upgrade our horrible facilities.
I will post a preseason update with info on the players that won the league aswell as my new summer signings.
