Good luck in your first 'big' job. Lazio start the game as title contenders, they seem to have dropped off a bit but you should be able to aim for top 4 soon.

Their last top 3 finish was 4 seasons ago, in 21/22. Since then they've been 7th, 12th and 7th. I'll be looking for a Europa League spot next year.

Two wins and 7 points wasn't a bad return from the opening four games, especially for a team devoid of confidence and heading towards relegation. We're not safe yet, but we will be

and we're 8 points clear of the relegation zone, and only 2 points from a top half spot

The losing run continues, meaning I've not picked up a point since the last SI update.

but we surviuved, just. And the board issued an ultimatum after the Cagliari game, 9 points from 5 matches. On the positive, that means I'll be here next season. A big chunk of the squad won't

September started with a win over Milan, making it 6 points from 6, but back to back defeats against Udinese and Atalanta meant I had to beat Napoli to keep my job

The defeat to Udinese was incredibly hard to accept

2051765532_Udih2026.PNG.0ab5a7ccfbf61ea0a9d215c320ccc7bd.PNG

and I think we were value for a point against Atalanta too

2130383476_Atala2026.PNG.80687421f53ec40c9b8c74f009e7fb76.PNG

but we end September in a European spot, and my job saved

Time to review a wonderful season

1072267500_Review27.1.PNG.69f7d4a61c93aa418455de5c5b865d42.PNG

We begin with the new arrivals

29119930_Review27.2.PNG.722ea6ab8e0256d3f0af410906ad668b.PNG

An incredible run in saw us drop only 5 points between February and May

1936390925_Review27.3.PNG.0d54bd53b5cfe82d4ee4592c42385771.PNG

and we dished out some thumpings across the season

1046947402_Review27.4.PNG.2dcb23a71d0a3607bf1645050d6b4ef6.PNG

but the financial picture is a bleak one

293148318_Review27.5.PNG.20cb3d8ffaa2fe6d83f1b5b39ef22f58.PNG

We used a number of formations throughout the season, including the one shown in the team of the year, but this was not our most frequently used setup. We played 4-2-3-1 for most of the season

1766345629_Review27.6.PNG.4a72119612880cb6630c538866b7b127.PNG

We didn't win any Serie A awards, but it's hard to argue against Kinkoue as our best player, although Belotti might want to argue

1217280856_Review27.7.PNG.da17192a34dd1a5a71c0c16c6f84c9c7.PNG

and once again, confirmation that we won the title.

Your formation is one I like too, can I see the full tactic?

Congrats on promotion!

The formation as shown is a Knap tactic called Holy Ghost

HolyGhost.PNG.20dbf71820b86b6d5174fdf85e62e9e3.PNG

but for most of the season, I used a 4-2-3-1

376607666_ParisienWalk.PNG.72034598e556f031b770d057d6ecf74c.PNG

Since the update a week or so ago (roughly the time I joined Lazio), my own 4-3-3 which I had been using stopped working at all, so I switched to Knap tactics until I can work out what is going wrong with mine.

There were three arrivals, 13 departures ahead of the new season

766276603_TransfersJul2027.PNG.251c6281e65b89ad40909d9b75db399e.PNG

Kevin Sessa comes in at right back

Amad Diallo adds quality at right wing

and Bell adds another striker option, although he won't be first choice

JSB.PNG.0b4d6a224b2367eeb580aa889db49d64.PNG

Which leaves the squad looking like this

Almost perfect in September, the only slip-up a deserved Champions League draw

64597498_Sep2027.PNG.88b4cca68dbcb56e2e5d6922840b0a1e.PNG

and that sees us end the month just outside the European places, but with a game in hand on everyone above us. Win that and we'd go third

Unbeaten, but not perfect, in October

211491036_Oct2027.PNG.fbcc3dee34755ca08c7f18d78f08d7af.PNG

and whilst the draw against Bologna was fair reward, we deserved much more against Torino

1187705278_Torinoa2027.PNG.2086ddf4b09a916eda7e371a2bdc4602.PNG

If we'd won either game, we'd be top of the table

Not a bad January, with only 1 defeat

918788062_Jan2028.PNG.1ef6cb49bd9621f2c8e41b1b527c1c7b.PNG

No complaints at the Milan defeat, or the draw with the same opposition in Serie A, but we should have beaten Torino, who equalised less than 1 minute after we'd scored

257016206_Torinoh2028.PNG.d6bea654fd438dfd14310d40bd2b61d8.PNG

Which leaves us in third place. I'm fairly sure my target now is to secure a top 4 finish, then look for a move in the summer. Lazio are mired in debt, and are not going to be able to compete regularly with Juventus and Milan. If an opportunity arises before the summer, I'll consider it, but I can't see me being here next season

February, on paper at least, looks bad

1711054288_Feb2028.PNG.5c88d04ce5310fa01701a07d7dc642e1.PNG

but whilst I've no complaints at losing to Inter over 2 legs, we were robbed against Roma

1753342264_Romaa2028.PNG.e286e724d568bc50fd04de8c645bea9a.PNG

In no way was a 3-0 loss to Bologna an accurate reflection of a game we deserved a draw from

649302718_Bolh2028.PNG.d850c289adfd80cdf8ce5938b02234be.PNG

and that leaves us third, but with Champions League qualification by no means assured

The nightmare continued into the start of April, but we did end the month 3 unbeaten

2035441329_Apr2028.PNG.5b6ee31c41c8b9afdb7525d3c132120b.PNG

No complaints about the Inter or Juve games, they were both way better than us, but we deserved more against Atalanta

885013168_Atalh2028.PNG.e85f70f1b7291e1f563358ed1e2080df.PNG

and Benevento

2107139375_Beneh2028.PNG.d468b7fc1f604fe7960535eba1f28c3e.PNG

and we are now almost certainly out of the race for a top 4 spot, as with 3 games left, we trail 4th by 6 points. The one thing that offers us a glimmer of hope is that our final match is at home to Roma
