  1. After not posting for a long period of time, I've managed to play 6 seasons so far. Just a summary below of how each season went: 1st Season Managed to win promotion pretty comfortably from Serie C. Key player - Andrea Russotto 2nd Season After a horrendous start where we tried to switch to a 3-5-2 and I had a vote of confidence, we managed to again to somehow get promoted through the most complicated playoff system imaginable. Poor start may have also been due to numerous new players bedding in. key player - Bruno Zucullini 3rd Season Solid first season back in Serie A with a host of new signings and managed to finish 7th. For which i have attached my transfers below.
  2. Tactics Am going to play 4-2-3-1, with a high press, high tempo strategy. Am looking to control the game with a deep lying playmaker and an attacking playmaker too. i will have both fullbacks pushing on and with an inside forward on the left hand side, and a winger on the right. Whilst I'd normally want either a complete forward or an advanced forward in the solitary role upfront, I will due to personel have to play with a target man instead. Gk - Radu/ Coric Rightback - Adjapong/ Garufo Leftback- Nunzella/ Ricci Left Centre back - Cannini/ Lucarelli Right centre back - Coly/ Marchizza/ Saporetti Deeplying playmaker - Locatelli/ Sabbione Ballwinning midfielder- Fazzi/ Giorfino Attacking midfielder - Russotto/ Scavone Left inside forward - Lo Faso/ Baraye Right wing - Chiesa/ Niccollini Target man - Calaio/ Evacou That just leaves the following players whom I can't sell for love nor money: Benassi, Miglietta, Zommers, Guazzo, Corapi. i have also terminated the loan of Messina to save funds. Whilst the squad is of a high standard I just hope they gel in time for the upcoming season.
  3. Transfer window I decided that loyalty to my current squad would not be wise, especially given how old, slow and technically hopeless some of my players were, as my forward line does seem to resemble a veterans 5 aside team. The only problem is that no one wants my players, and so I have decided to let them rot in the reserves to grow even older and staler like moldy cabbage. On the plus side, I have decided to seemingly take ownership of the loan market, as how locatelli, chiesa and adjapong agreed to join is a mystery to me. I have also been able to strengthen in goal with Radu from Inter, who along with all my other loan signings of Fazzi and Sabbione in midfield, Marchizza in defence and Bonfiglo up front do mean that I have considerable strength in depth. I did however manage to make one signing myself with Russotto joining for 150k , and he is key for me, as it will be him who my team is built around in the playmakers role.
  4. The target for the season is to reach the playoffs within serie C, though with a playoff system more confusing than Fifa rankings it appears that so long as your not in a relegation dog fight you should always achieve this aim. The squad Goalkeepers Here you have a straight choice between two young but ultimately poor keepers in Zommers and Coric, here I will keep one as a back up and try replace them with a clear first choice. Right back Your current choice at right back is Garufo as a clear first choice with Messina onloan from Fiorentina as a back up. However as you are paying Messina's wages in full and him barely having an attribute in double figures he will be sent back immediately. Left back Here you have an excellent first choice in Nunzella who will be my starting left back for the season, with our youth prospect in Ricci as adequate back up. Centre back Again this is another area where you have plenty of options, as Coly and Cannini will be your first choice pairing, with Lucarelli and Bennasi as solid reserves. Right wing Here we currently have Niccolini, who appears to be a decent enough squad player, but we do lack depth here as Melandri and Mazzochi aren't naturals in this position. Left wing First choice here is Yves Baraye, though he is far from exceptional at this level and our only natural too, so we may have to keep him. Centre midfield In this position we have plenty of options, as our first choice is certainly Scavone, with notable other options in Corapi, Miglietta, Simonetti and Giorfino. However, we do need to add some quality here, and I'll be looking to add a quality attacking midfielder to provide further flexibility. Strikers As I'm only likely to be playing with one striker most of the time, this would therefore appear to be one of our strongest positions, Calaio and Evacuo are excellent options at this level. I will therefore try to get rid of the aging back up options of Melandri, Guazzo
  5. Have just began my first save with Parma in numerous years and am looking to bring them back to Serie A. After gaining promotion from Serie D last season, the task is to now help get them out of Serie C at the first attempt. I will keep you posted on my progress throughout.
  6. Finished below Juve who cruised it as well as Napoli and Sampdoria, have nearly finished season two but had to get rid of so much deadwood after season 1 to raise some finance.
  7. Have just completed my first season with Inter and managed to finish fourth as missed out on 3rd by goal difference. Transfers In Giuseppe Bellucci - 1.8mln Andrea Bertolacci (CO) - 2.4mln Marco Verratti - 14mln Transfers Out Christian Chivu - free Ricardo Alvarez - 2mln Jonathan - 2.8mln Formation - 4-1-2-1-2 (Diamond) GK - Handanovic, Carrizzo LB - Perreira, RB - Nagotomo, Zannetti CB - Jesus, Bellucci CB - Rannochia, Samuel, Andreolli DM - Cambiasso CM - Verratti, Kuzmanovic CM - Taider, Bertolacci AM - Kovacic, Guarin FW - Milito, Icardi FW - Palacio, Belfodil Summary Pleased with defence as conceded the fewest goals in the league but apart from Palacio in the last few games none of my strikers were able to get into any sort of form. Kovacic was star performer and top scorer with 12 goals and especially pleased with defence. Strike force will need sorting out for next season.
