This was the first time in a long time where we didn't complete the treble. In fact, we only picked up one of the three trophies on offer this year as due to having everyone on international duty, we lost 1-0 to Pennarossa in the Super Coppa. There were no excuses available for our Coppa Titano loss to La Fiorita though. We'll chalk that down to an off day. Still, we picked up our eighth consecutive league title to ensure the season was not completely hopeless.
Top Goalscorer - Federico Ciacci 32a - 20 goals
Highest Average Rating - Federico Ciacci 32a, Massimo Galante 35a - 7.58
Honourable Mentions - Andrea Tamagnini, Stefano Raschi 35b
Ciacci blossomed on the right wing this year and stepped up when our strikers failed to deliver. 20 goals is an outstanding return from the right wing from him when the likes of Gasperoni 23b failed to produce. Galante 35a was also on great form in central midfield, as was left winger Tamagnini (who was shifted to striker towards the end of the season) and Raschi 35b who got alot more game time than expected due to injuries.

Marco Borriello's Arsenal side won the league following a second year finish the year beforehand as they won the title by just two points ahead of West Ham, whose run of 3 draws in their final four games really cost them.
