2012-13 Season Review:
So.. The Finances are still in shambles... Our loan have been paid out, however we're nearing a million pounds in debt. An awful start to the season placed us below the relegation line. The tactics did not work at all. A new aggresive tactic was employed and we battled our way to midtable. A late-season slump saw us drop to 17th. But relegation was never really an issue.
Player of the season:
Joachim Mununga - AM R / ST - 17 goals in 24 appearances. Key goals in important games.
Other Key Players
Bjarne Nagel - WB L / DM / M L - Bought in midseason, showed his talent well in some games. Stability wanted.
Melvin Platje - M / AM C - A great player, who will improve as the teammates gets better.
David Ferreiro - M R / AM RL - Assist-king. Now we need someone on the other flank
2013-14 Season Preview:
Our team needs strengthening to move up the table. We need some new backs, and a new left winger. A sale of D C Fornasier to free up some money could be a possibility, however he has rejected the two offers so far. What we need is some stability and some young talented footballers. Someone who if they perform well can inject some money through sales.

National team comments:
I'm yet to be appointed manager of the Sanmarinese national team. However I will apply at the earliest opportunity. It's not like they're performing well. Untill I'm appointed i will not go into details about the national team. They're still to steal a point from someone. Loosing every game since the start of my career.
They've got a great possibility for a draw against Faroe Islands and Singapore in the next two games.
