    Typical us. Get into a decent league position, then choke.

    12.03.17
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 0 Casale (Lega Pro Prima Divisione A)
    Sergio Corallo netted what proved to be the winner in this match, vaulting us into the playoff spots.

    19.03.17
    Santarcangelo Calcio 3 - 1 Pro Patria (Lega Pro Prima Divisione A)
    Sergio Corallo netted a double and Luca Onorato finished it off, despite us going a goal down and then a man down as Nicola Del Pivo saw red for a second yellow.

    26.03.17
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 3 Ravenna (Lega Pro Prima Divisione A)
    This match was hilarious. Youth players Mirco Doria, Nunzio Novelli and Luca Buldrini all made their debuts in this match. However, the latter made the headlines for all thr wrong reasons. He was harshly adjudged to have fouled a Ravenna player in the box for a pen (it wasn't on replay). This led to a goal and a yellow for him. Then he blocked off their striker on a break, earning himself a red card on his debut for a second yellow and a 4.5 rating. All their goals were from penalties. Bacchiocchi and Gandelli were the other culprits.

    After the Ravenna game, is that the sound of the wheels falling off I can hear?! Hopefully not!

    Results
    02.04.17
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 3 S.P.A.L (Lega Pro Prima Divisione A)
    Sergio Corello reduced the deficit to 1-2, but a goal midway through the second half meant that Luca Onorato's late goal and Bacchiocci's penalty miss would prove costly.

    05.04.17
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 1 Mantova (Lega Pro Prima Divisione A)
    Juan Pastore netted an absolutely vital goal in our quest for the playoffs, equalising in the 91st minute to stop us falling out of the race.

    15.04.17
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 1 San Marino (Lega Pro Prima Divisione A)
    Sergio Corallo netted a double in the first half, which was marred by Luca Buldrini's SECOND red card in two games!.

    23.04.17
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 0 Feralpi Salo (Lega Pro Prima Divisione A)
    Luca Onorato slotted home halfway through the second half to give us a priceless victory. That and Pastore's equaliser looked like our most important goals this season!

    30.04.17
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 2 Como (Lega Pro Prima Divisione A)
    Gutting. We never got out of the blocks and this result left us 2 points out of a playoff place in 7th.

    ------------------------------------------------------


    These were the vitally important goals of the month, nay, the season.

    07.05.17
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 0 Bassano (Lega Pro Prima Divisione A)
    Gianluca Bacchiocci's beautifully flighted free-kick after just a minute settled this match. This win, coupled with Mantova's loss, leapfrogged us above them by a point and saw us into the playoffs!... But, wait, it turned out that San Marino had scored a 90th minute winner and leapfrogged BOTH of us into that last playoff spot, ,leaving me in 6th by a point.

    -------------------------------------------------

    We finished a point out of the playoffs in 6th. Gutted at our season-ending fail AGAIN. I'll be blooding a lot of the youth next season as again, we finished in the red. I could get £800k in buying out sell-on clauses, but they'll be useless while we have the stadium debt. The off-season will be living and learning, I guess.

    Not bad for a player that was an import from my U-20 side during our injury-period up front.

    Is there much you can change to give youself a better chance next season? I suppose your hands are tied somewhat considering the continuous financial shenanigans.

    I have no idea. I think we'll do worse next season, simply as I'll be playing a lot of youth next season.

    So close again. It's an excellent youth intake though, so take pride in that. Should be good news over the next few years with lads like that in the team. The debt must be an overarching problem though. Annoying with so stupid chairmen

    Thanks man. The big problem I have is that both our training facilities are rented. Which sucks.

    Santarcangelo Calcio, Preseason/August 2017 Review

    We were moved to Lega Pro Prima Divisione B this season. Our budget was set at £9.75k wage and £26k transfer. AGAIN, this was nearly £4k under what my wage bill actually was and would require some surgery again to try and get under the cap and play competitive. Didn't bother requesting anything from the board, as I already knew the answer.

    ------------------------------------------------------

    Results
    13.08.17
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 1 Santegidese (Coppa Italia, First Qualifying Round)
    Debutant Francesco Martino netted the opener and Sergio Corallo smashed a venomous rising drive past the keeper to give us the victory.

    20.08.17
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 2aet Ascoli (Coppa Italia, Second Qualifying Round)
    Sergio Corallo broke the offside trap to open the scoring, but were pegged back just after HT. We matched the Serie B side all the way up to the second half of ET, when we finally broke down and they netted the winner .
    -------------------------------------------------------

    Due to the precarious financial nature of the club, I brought in only 4 signings. First was D/WBR Vincenzo Superbi, who was on loan to us from Parma last season. Also coming in were D/WBL Mike Koenders from amateur Dutch side AFC, ST Francesco Martino from Torino and GK Lino Tagilabue from Ternana, all on free transfers.

    Outgoings were big. Even though I put my entire £26k transfer budget on the wages, I was still £3k over. I let go a few youth players, sold DRL Mohammed Abdellouhi for £120k + 50% to Siena and generally cleaned house. DM Thomas Sarina left on a free to Sorrento; DLC Giovanbattista Anastasi was sold to Portimonese for £55k; DC Andrea Sangiorgio left on a free for Carpi and ST Calogero Socre was sold to Salerno for £100k.

    Francesco Martino scored within the first minute to put us in the driving seat, then settled the game on 27 minutes with a cool finish.

    17.09.17
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 1 Chieti (Lega Pro Prima Divisione B)
    The 1-2 punch combo of Sergio Corallo & Francesco Martino settled this game.

    24.09.17
    Santarcangelo Calcio 3 - 0 Cosenza (Lega Pro Prima Divisione B)
    1-2 punch combo again with Sergio Corallo and Francesco Martino, started off by an uppercut in the shape of a thunderous Luca Onorato free-kick.

    Sergio Corello netted the only goal. but would be ruled out for 3 weeks with injury.

    08.10.17
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 2 Foligno (Lega Pro Prima Divisione B)
    Both their goals came from bad deflections that gave our keeper no chance.

    11.10.17
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 0 Ancona (Coppa Italia Lega Pro First Round)
    Right back Vincenzo Superbi popped up with a goal from a corner to settle this tie.

    15.10.17
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 2 L'Aquila (Lega Pro Prima Divisione B)
    Francesco Martino put us ahead, but then the 2001 FA Cup Final happened all over again. We conceded late, then left the player free to net the winner on 93 minutes.

    18.10.17
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 2 Livorno (Lega Pro Prima Divisione B)
    Emanuele Paramatti put us ahead with his first ever senior goal, but we went behind midway through the second half. However, Francesco Martino levelled it up on 85 minutes and we snatched the draw against perennial ex-Serie A opposition.

    22.10.17
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 1 Virtus Lanciano (Lega Pro Prima Divisione B)
    Francesco Valentini put us ahead with his first ever senior goal, then Juan Pastore stooped to head home the winner late on,as we lost Francesco Martino to injury.

    29.10.17
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 0 Spezia (Lega Pro Prima Divisione B)
    We were dreadfully light up front, with a lot of injuries at all levels and it showed in this dull draw.

    We finished 2017 in 5th place. Lack of consistancy AS EVER is biting me in the arse. I think I've been here before. Twice.

    Pretty much. There's very little difference between the two for rules and such, only the Non-EU rule which is you're not allowed them below Serie B and above, you can only buy TWO a season from outside Italy

    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 1 L'Aquila (Lega Pro Prima Divisione B)
    Hello disappointment, my old friend...

    11.03.18
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 1 Livorno (Lega Pro Prima Divisione B)
    Sergio Corallo netted a late equaliser against the league leaders

    18.03.18
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 1 Virtus Lanciano (Lega Pro Prima Divisione B)
    6 points out of the playoff race now. Arsebiscuits.

    25.03.18
    Santarcangelo Calcio 4 - 0 Spezia (Lega Pro Prima Divisione B)
    Wow. Marcello Ferrentino, a member of my much vaunted youth team, made his debut in this match in place of a much misfiring Juan Pastore and his debut was one to remember as he set up two goals of Gianluca Bacchiocci's hat-trick (the other being a free-kick) and provided the run which led to Sebastian Mladen's converted penalty

    31.03.18
    Santarcangelo Calcio 6 - 0 Ternana (Lega Pro Prima Divisione B)
    Oh cruel fate, why do you play with me so? This win put us BACK in the playoff slots on goal difference. A penalty and header from Sebastian Mladen put us on our way. Young striker Emanuele Paramatti helped our 'misfiring' offence with his second goal in three games and also another Ferrentino set-up Gianluca Bacchiocci goal put us 4-0 up. The final icing on the cake was from Sergio Corallo and Kadir Caldi who netted late goals to top off a fantastic victory

    I think your team like to see you suffer.

    Looks like it's a real pain to get out of that level, but if anything's going to push you forward it's your youth setup. That keeper Doria is amazing! I haven't kept up lately so not sure where did he come from, but Sergio Corallo is a youth player too, right? Have you posted a screenie of him?

    My previous adventures in the italian lower leagues haven't been anywhere near that difficult, but then I managed unusually big/rich clubs for the level (Venezia and Carrarese) and they still ran at big losses, so I imagine how tough it is to take on minnows with tons of debt...

    Yep, Sergio was an early youth player. And Doria was a prospect that came in last season.

    Santarcangelo Calcio, April 2018 Review

    Results
    08.04.18
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 1 Frosinone (Lega Pro Prima Divisione B)
    A great comeback win against a promotion rival. We were outplayed thoroughly in the first 25 mins and went behind however, we caught them on the break 10 minutes later with a great breakaway finish from Sergio Corallo. Then my new go-to combo of Ferrentino passing to Gianluca Bacchiocci earned us the win.

    11.04.18
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 0 Salerno (Lega Pro Prima Divisione B)
    I almost give up with this team. Only saving grace is that we didn't lose any ground because of the draw.

    22.04.18
    Santarcangelo Calcio 4 - 1 Sorrento (Lega Pro Prima Divisione B)
    A Sebastian Mladen penalty put us on the way, however they equalised with their first shot on 70 mins. Panic set in, before a breakaway double by Sergio Corallo and a 90th minute own-goal flattered us more than the scoreline suggested

    29.04.18
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 0 Siracusa (Lega Pro Prima Divisione B)
    Surely not?... Michael Abdul Razak's free-kick and Matteo Gandelli's header put us two points clear in 5th with two games to go...

    Santarcangelo Calcio, May 2018 Review

    Results
    06.05.18
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 1 Crotone (Lega Pro Prima Divisione B)
    Why, oh why do we always go to pieces under pressure. An absolute bun fight in the box lead to Crotone's opener and dumped us out of the playoffs. But, as ever, our saviour, Sergio Corallo broke away to net the equaliser and see us into the final day with a chance..

    13.05.18
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 2 Aversa Normanna (Lega Pro Prima Divisione B)
    I. Give. Up. We were fighting a 4 way battle for two playoff slots with Crotone, L'Aquila and Cosenza..ALL within two points of each other. It was hairy. And we went down early on. Chance after chance was missed. Cosenza eventually lost 3-1 ruling them out. Crotone won, which gave them a spot and L'Aquilla were still drawing when the second AN goal went in on 80 minutes, putting us out in 6th place AGAIN on head-to-head results.



    However, the 87th minute winner for Spezia against L'Aquila meant.... I'M IN THE PLAYOFFS, BABY!!

    Santarcangelo Calcio, Postseason 2018 Review

    Results
    27.05.18
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 2 Frosinone (Lega Pro Prima Divisione B Playoff Semi-Final, Leg 1)
    Sergio Corallo saw us equalise late on in the first half after being dominated and behind in the first minute from an offside goal. However, they restored the only goal advantage minutes later and I went in at the break 1-2 down at home. However, Francesco Martino came out of his slump and poked home to give us a chance in the away leg.

    03.06.18
    Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 2 Frosinone (Lega Pro Prima Divisione B Playoff Semi-Final, Leg 2)
    We went 0-1 down inside a minute again. Although we pulled it back with a great Gianluca Bacchiocci free-kick on 10 mins, we just looked toothless. And it came back to haunt us on 63 mins as the midfielder, not usually known for his dribbling skills, dribbled through my entire defence and hit a weak shot into the net. Worse was to come when sub Juan Pastore brought down a Frosinone player in the box on 88 minutes. However, Miceli guessed right and saved the powerful shot.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Well, that's it for another season. Another season of disappointment. We're good enough to be in the running, just not good enough to go up. A few departures will be happening in the offseason, along with the opening of the new stadium... *lone voice shouting 'Yay'...*

    Bad luck losing in the playoffs. Given the way your seasons always seem to tail off do you think it could be something to do with a lack of rotation that nerfs you in the end? Or is it a plain and simple lack of depth?

    Both! Also, I have to keep selling a lot of players and some tend to have one good season then be mediocre for the rest of the time.

    Santarcangelo Calcio, Preseason/August 2018 Review

    Time to pick ourselves up after another tough off-season. No staffing or retirement issues to deal with luckily, however we did finally open the white ele... new stadium. This was to be christened in our first competitive game. I took a chance and inquired for the works with the board. No investment in youth recruitment, junior coaching or training facilities was given, however I was allowed to build new youth training facilites. Shock horror. The brief was, as ever, to avoid relegation. And, as ever, our wage budget was £4k below the £13k I had accrued at £9k and we had £24k to spend. Surgery and selling seems to be the order of the day again.

    -----------------------------------------------------
    Results
    12.08.18
    Santarcangelo Calcio 3 - 0 Mezzocorona (Coppa Italia, First Qualifying Round)
    Our opening competitve game at our new stadium and Sergio Corallo christened it with the opening goal. Francesco Martino hit the second after coming on as a sub and late on, new signing Wesley Verbeek scored on his debut for the club..

    18.08.18
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 1 Foggia (Coppa Italia, Second Qualifying Round)
    We went 0-1 down early on, however we refused to give up and die and Sergio Corallo hit a double, including a late winner to send us through. This led to...



    27.08.18
    Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 1 AS Roma (Coppa Italia, Third Qualifying Round)
    We fought like lions in this match, even hitting the post with the keeper beaten, but in the end, we were beaten by a fizzing 30 yard angled daisy-cutter into the far corner. A goal to win any match!.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Transfers
    The biggest transfer was ST Wesley Verbeek on a Bosman free from Heracles Almeo in Holland. I also picked up San Marinese MRC/AMC Michele Fiorino on free after being released by Serie A side Novara. I also picked up three reinforcements from parent club Parma on loan.

    Outgoings were harsh. D/WBR Vicenzo Superbi went to Alto Adige for £10k + 10%; GK Federico Andreani went to Barletta for £10k + 10%; AMC Juan Pastore went for £7k + 10%, also to Barletta. Also leaving were last season's flop ST Michael Abdul Razak to Pisa for £16k + 10%. He really didn't live up to his promise, so him and his high wage had to go. The two that killed most, however, were GK Luigi Miceli to Cittadella for £60k + 50%. I need him, but the emergence of Doria means that I can sell him without fear. I hope. The second was AMRLC/ST Luca Onorato for £45k + 50% to Portimonese in Portugal. He was our all-time record goalscorer, but his play in the last two seasons has been abysmal and I can't afford for him to sit on the bench.

    Santarcangelo Calcio, September 2018 Review

    Results
    09.09.18
    Santarcangelo Calcio 5 - 1 AlbinoLeffe (Lega Pro Prima Divisione A)
    Yowsers. Welcome back to Serie C. We slaughtered the relegated side with a hat-trick from Sergio Corello and goals from Wesley Verbeek on his league debut and a Sebastian Mladen penalty settled it.

    16.09.18
    Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 0 Taranto (Lega Pro Prima Divisione A)
    Sergio Corallo netted his fourth and fifth in two matches to give us a great start to the season.

    23.09.18
    Santarcangelo Calcio 3 - 1 Monza (Lega Pro Prima Divisione A)
    We again went down to a 25 yard howitzer. However, we had a lifeline when the Monza keeper was given a red card for handball. We then drew level thanks to Sergio Corallo's cool finish and took the lead to stay with Wesley Verbeek's double.

    30.09.18
    Santarcangelo Calcio 3 - 0 S.P.A.L (Lega Pro Prima Divisione A)
    Sergio Corallo slotted home halfway through the first half to put us in the lead, then Wesley Verbeek hit a double to seal it.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    A winning month, with 8 goals from Corallo and 4 from Verbeek saw us storm ahead in the league. BOTH our goals conceded were from 25-30 yards however.

    For the first time since I took over, seven years ago, we fielded a first XI made up of players purely that came through the youth ranks. I'm so proud! I also had three players in the Italy U-19 side as well!
