  1. May 2020 - Triestina - Serie C Girone B With 1 game remaining we were two points ahead of Spezia. We secured a 2-2 draw at Sudtirol despite going down to 10 men after 50 minutes as we held onto win on goal difference. Games continue with the Serie C Supercoppa with a round robin vs Girone A and C winners. We're crowned Serie C winners with two convincing victories. With another 12-months left on my contract I'm not sure whether I'll continue the journey into Serie B as my reputation has increased to 'decent'. I'm hopeful I'll be in the frame for some jobs over the summer to give me options...
  2. April 2020 - Triestina - Serie C Girone B Another strong month and plenty of goals take our tally to 124 and a GD of +88. I really doubt we'll be able to secure a GD of +100 as we keep conceding. Sudtirol have gone out of title contention with two games remaining as they lost vs Renate, meaning it's between us and Spezia for the title and automatic promotion.
  3. March 2020 - Triestina - Serie C Girone B The month starts with a defeat to 3rd placed Spezia, meaning we've not secured a victory against of our title chasing challengers this season. Dropped points versus Renate also don't help, however Sudtirol and Spezia don't go through an unbeaten month. so I manage to secure a 5 point advantage however they both have a game in hand.
  4. February 2020 - Triestina - Serie C Girone B Another unbeaten month now with 7 League wins in succession. Three points remains the gap to 2nd placed Sudtirol and I'm starting to dread that final game of the season away to them, albeit our goal difference is now +77 and never to be beaten by them. The month has seen us pass the 100 goal mark in the League and secure an end of season play-off spot. We're now guaranteed at least 3rd. Interesting that last seasons champions finished with 72 points and we've already hit that tally by the end of February.
  5. January 2020 - Triestina - Serie C Girone B The new year starts with more victories and goals taking us 3 points clear of Sudtirol. The club are now over £500k in debt and the chairman decides to accept a £61k (rising to £170k) offer from Parma for our best 16yo player (who has yet to feature for the first team).
  6. December 2019 - Triestina - Serie C Girone B Why on earth did I sign a new contract..? The form was terrible as we lost our first games of the season in succession leading to both Spezia and Sudtirol closing the gap to three points at the top and momentarily losing first place. If Spezia themselves hadn't lost twice in December then we'd be starting 2020 in second. This three horse race is becoming intriguing. I'm staggered that the three sides are heads and shoulders above the rest of the division. Although it seems they have the upper hand against Triestina as we've not been able to beat either as hosts in recent months. Also, if this form continues, I've now noticed that our final game of the season is a trip to Sudtirol!
  7. November 2019 - Triestina - Serie C Girone B Another unbeaten month for Triestina with 47 points, however we can't shake off Spezia and Sudtirol. The Split between the top half and bottom half of the division is too stark and a goalfest when we come to play giving a +53 goal difference. As the month ends I'm offered a new contract with a one year extension until June 2021 which I gladly accept seeing that we're moving in the right direction and almost amassed the same points (56) as we finished last season with and ended up 5th.
  8. October 2019 - Triestina - Serie C Girone B After 11 wins in a row, the run continues until a 2-2 draw with Speiza and we hang with 10-men. Then followed two heavy victories scoring 7 goals in each game, with 48 scored in 12 games, before a much weakened team for the Serie C cup is our first defeat of the season and in 15 games. Both Sudtirol-Alto Adige and Speiza are keeping up with our early pace.
  9. September 2019 - Triestina - Serie C Girone B Not sure what's going on. We remain unbeaten, having won every game so far this season. Top of the league and glad I stayed at Triestina after the previous chairman left.
  10. August 2019 - Triestina - Serie C Girone B Well @Nobby_McDonald we do start incredibly well in both the Coppa Italia Serie C and two opening victories against Fermana and Sambenedettese. Not posting table as it's meaningless after two games. Happy though with eight games unbeaten and so are the players.
  11. June / July 2019 - Triestina - Serie C Pre-season starts with a takeover. Only a former director taking control as chairman, but nonetheless, the old guard have gone - which is positive for me seeing that we didn't see eye to eye... Only four friendlies in July and August before the Coppa Italia Serie C starts. All victories, including from two of our near neighbours in Slovenia. After the winning run towards the end of last season we're fourth favourites for the title. A top 10 finish is what the board are expecting to secure a play-off place, but I'm aiming for top 3. To help us, six loans have joined from Serie A sides in DC, MC, AMRL and SC.
  12. Ta mate, heading in the right direction...
  13. June 2019 The season ends with a 0-1 defeat in the second leg, meaning we remain in Serie C for 2019/20 - which is probably justified given we scraped into the play-offs. The chairman is leaving and a takeover is imminent. The club are serious in debt and won't fund coaching. Given my position was precarious only in mid-April I'm considering my options despite the contract through to 2020 and have requested an extension, yet this has been refused and I've leaked it to the press...
  14. May 2019 We don't just secure the 12 points from 15, this bizarre run at the end of the season secures a 5th placed finish and play-offs. We continue the run going with convincing 1st and 2nd round victories. Extra time was needed in the 3rd round with a goal in the 106th minute to secure a 4-3 aggregate win. The quarters sees us play Casertana FC, who finished 2nd in C(C). A first leg 0-1 defeat as hosts, despite 34 shots, 2 disallowed goals and 60% possession. Time for the run to come to an end, but we've still got the second leg in early June to come.
  15. April 2019 Things go from bad to worse in early April as we move to 1 point ahead of safety with 5 games remaining. The board invite me in for talks and we negotiate I can keep the job as manager providing that I secure 12 points from 15. The first match of those 5 versus FeralpiSalo is a 0-2 defeat, but then we win the next 3 in succession. 1 game to go...
