scudetto_santarcangelo.jpgSantarcangelo Calcio, November 2011 Review

Results

06.11.11

Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 0 Mantova (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

Ivan Graziani's shot was bundled home a minute after HT to give us a priceless 3 points.

16.11.11

Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 1 Alessandria (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

Once we lost both ST's Nicola Campus and Ivan Graziani to injury during the match, we were toothless and couldn't muster up the firepower.

20.11.11

Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 1 Treviso (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

Daylight-f******-Robbery. We had one recognised striker so I had to get Lucas Cantoro in and he repaid us with the equalizing goal. Then, on 93 mins, sub Martín Astudillo hooked home a shot after a goalmouth meleé to give us the win. We had 2 shots on target the whole game and only 3 overall. They had 6/11. I didn't even have the good grace to wear a mask...

27.11.11

Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 2 Valenzara (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

, however we conceded a fierce 20 yard snapshot and then gave away a penalty, along with losing Nicola Zavelloni to injury

-----------------------------------------------

I didn't put it up before, but enjoy Kuami Agboh's free-kick in the 1-1 draw against Bellaria

Tough break on the crash, but I agree that beginning anew can often be a breath of fresh air. Looking forward to see how you move up this go around!

scudetto_santarcangelo.jpgSantarcangelo Calcio, December 2011 Review

Results

04.12.11

Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 0 Virtus Entella (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

Nicola Campus finally got his act together after numerous sub-par performances and scored an absolute pearler. Daniele Ferri limped off midway through the first half.

12.12.11

Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 1 San Marino (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

Nicola Campus scored for the second time in two games after replacing the injured Daniele Ferri. Again. Francis Obeng headed the second that put us home and dry.

18.12.11

Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 0 Poggibonsi (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

Lucas Cantoro continued with his habit of scoring great goals with the opener and Daniele Ferri made it two late on..

-------------------------------------------------------------

This meant that we finished 2011 in 5th place in Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A.

As a reward for following, have TWO goals of the month.

Thanks man. Yeah, it is interesting as there are a lot of different problems to be dealt with this time.

scudetto_santarcangelo.jpgSantarcangelo Calcio, January 2012 Review

Results

08.01.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 0 Rimini (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

Dull game, livened up by the final whistle.

15.01.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 2 Giacomense (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

Two goals conceded from corners, with only Martín Astudillo's precise finish to show for it.

22.01.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 2 Pro Patria (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

We went 2-0 up early with a header by Francis Obeng and a nice finish from Antonio Velazquez. However, a bad decision on a corner and a terrible pass to the opposition gifted Pro Patria two back to tie the game

29.01.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 2 Casale (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

A miserable January started looking up when Claudio Cola headed home from a corner after only 3 minutes to put us on our way, but a horrific slo-mo own goal by Fabio Cozza tied it up and a terrible deflection allowed Casale to take the lead and the win.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

A quiet January, simply for the fact that we got our 7 players back from injury and are now over-staffed! However, I picked up D/WBR Andrea Iozzia on a free and sold GK Riccardo Casali for £10k to Vigor Lamezia. Another worrying thing is that we're over £800k in the red. Ummm....

scudetto_santarcangelo.jpgSantarcangelo Calcio, February 2012 Review

Results

05.02.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 2 Savona (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

Mistakes = Goals against.

12.02.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 0 Lecco (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

The 1-2 punch from our strikers sealed this game. Ivan Graziani and Lucas Cantoro scoring either side of HT to give us the win

19.02.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 3 - 0 Borgo a Buggiano (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

Lucas Cantoro hit a double and Andrea Bricca netted a close range strike to give us a second win in a row and put us back into the playoff picture.

26.02.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 1 Cuneo (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

Conceded from a corner yet again. This needs work.

scudetto_santarcangelo.jpgSantarcangelo Calcio, March 2012 Review

Results

04.03.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 0 Bellaria (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

Dull. Boring. Not helping.

07.03.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 0 Renate (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

Our second 0-0 in a row, Martín Astudillo ended up being stretchered off and out for the rest of the season. With his contract up, I'm not sure he's worth keeping...

11.03.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 1 Sambonifacese (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

Frustrating. We took the lead through Antonio Velazquez and a Samboni player was dismissed right on HT to make us comfortable. However, we again conceded from a corner on 53 minutes and then lost Angelo Gregorio to a straight red for a two-footed tackle on 63 minutes, thus ending the match as a contest.

18.03.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 2 Mantova (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

Two down, a player up and woefully outplayed by HT, things needed changing. Sub Ivan Graziani scored right after HT, but we never looked like drawing.

----------------------

This stuttering run sent us out of the playoffs, but only by 2 points with 7 games to go!

scudetto_santarcangelo.jpgSantarcangelo Calcio, April 2012 Review

Results

04.04.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 4 Alessandria (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

This.... was actually worse than it looked. Kadir Caldi ended up with a 4.2 and an injury to save me shooting him on the pitch.

07.04.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 3 Treviso (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

It doesn't get any better here. We scored our one SOG, courtesy of Daniele Ferri, but we were already 0-3 down by that point.

18.04.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 1 Valenzana (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

Angelo Gregorio shown a straight red for a two-footed tackle on 88 minutes, they score the winner on 92 minutes. Epic fail. This league is so tight that this bad run has seen me be only 6 points away from the relegation playout!!!

22.04.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 0 Virtus Entella (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

Ivan Graziani and Daniele Ferri provided the 1-2 punch to snap our winless streak and put some pride back in the team

29.03.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 4 - 0 San Marino (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

Where was this a few games ago? A great win over a promotion-chasing side! Ivan Graziani and Daniele Ferri both hitting doubles to remind me bitterly of what could have been.

scudetto_santarcangelo.jpgSantarcangelo Calcio, May 2012 Review

Results

06.05.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 2 Poggibonsi (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

I just wanted this season to end. Martín Astudillo returned from injury to score after 2 mins, however two late goals meant we fizzled out with a whimper.

------------------------------------------------------

What a crap end to the season! We finished 12th in Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A, 6 points out of both playoffs, and it really wasn't any better than we deserved after that horrible run. I'm looking forward to the offseason so I can try to rebuild. Main thing is to try to see if Martín Astudillo and Fabio Cozza will accept reduced contracts for the next season as they are out of contract soon. Also out of contract are a number of my coaches and my Ass Man. Again, I need to shop around to see if I can get better. HOWEVER, the financial state of the team may mean our budget is severely slashed. If so, I need to struggle on with what I have and can get for nothing, wages-wise. This means that I may need to look for a new Parent Club, other than Serie B's Modena.

-----------------------------------------------------

Youth Intake

The youth intake was bad, as you would expect. However, it did turn up a 5-star prospect and a 2-star prospect which I promptly signed!

DC Filippo Rastelli (2-Star prospect)

ST Luca Onorato (5-star prospect)

A 5-star prospect? That sounds juicy :thup:

It does. However... :p. He's a 6'6" target man in a formation that doesn't allow as such. Also, now BOTH my training & youth facilities are rented and we've no money to improve coaching staff or recruitment, I think he'll stall here :(

It sucked. We couldn't buy a win. Plus Alessandria & Treviso were running away with the league at that point!

scudetto_santarcangelo.jpgSantarcangelo Calcio, 2012-13 Pre-Season Review

We were given a brief to avoid relegation and offered the budgets of £8.5k wages and £0 for transfers. This represented a £2k DROP in wage budget on last season and meant once that all my issues with players and staff and all the loans had left, I had very little to work with. But, hey-ho! I cancelled my association with Modena and put feelers out for another parent club. I also asked for a new feeder club, but was rejected. Requests for upgrades were also denied.

Transfers

Incoming in July, I brought in a new GK coach, Ass Man and Fitness Coach to replace the guys that left. The new arrivals aren't necessarily upgrades, but they wanted less money. All 5 players that were co-owned have come into the club permanently; These players being Paolo Beatrizzotti, Alex Lodovisi, Nicola Zavelloni, Nicola Del Pino and Kadir Caidi. Out of these, Lodivisi's contract was terminated and Zavelloni was listed for loan. Ex-Napoli youth GK Luigi Miceli was also drafted in on a free after he was released. Then came in the loans. ST Pedro Rosario from Lazio, DL's Mattia Rolli and Guglielmo Amendola from AS Roma, ST Andrea La Selva from Parma, DRC Matteo Gritti from Pergocrema, SW/DC Stéphane Sarni from Lugano and DM/MC Alessandro Corvesi from Prato.

Leaving the club were DM/MC Martín Astudillo, DL Luca Locatelli and ST Lucas Cantoro. I would have liked to keep them, but their wages demands priced them out of resigning. I also let go my Ass Man, Fitness Coach and GK Coach for the same reason. Having sunk to £2k below the wage budget excess with all the loan departures and such, I looked at my expiring contracts for this season. Star GK Matteo Gritti was on £1k and was worth £75k. I wouldn't be able to renew without a large increase so I shipped him off to AS Bari for £100k. Other players leaving for the same reason were D/WBR's Filippo Baldinini and Alessandro Fabbri, £24k to Cosenza and £18k to Teramo respectively. Teramo also bought DRC Claudio Cola for £20k. Finally, ST Antonio Velazquez was sold to AlzanoCene for £10k.

Good luck with season 2. I never really enjoy 1st seasons at clubs as they always seem to be a rebuilding exercise - season 2 is where it is at :) especially when things go wrong and they are all your players ;)

Looking forward to reading the outcome

scudetto_santarcangelo.jpgSantarcangelo Calcio, August 2012 Review

Results

19.08.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 2 Carraese (Coppa Italia Lega Pro, Group E)

We looked like a team of strangers. Disappointing. Mistakes contributed to both Carraese goals

07.04.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 1 San Marino (Coppa Italia Lega Pro, Group E)

Another mistake let in the San Marino opener. I'm starting to worry about Rocchi's positioning as he keeps letting in goals at the near post. Kuami Agboh's swirling free-kick brought us level late on.

---------------------------------------

Transfers

Mexican/Italian GK José Rocchi joined on a free, as did DM/MLC Pietro Panico.

Takeovers can be a blessing in disguise at times, although not always ;)

Glad you didn't have to sell all your best players when you entered administration.

scudetto_santarcangelo.jpgSantarcangelo Calcio, September 2012 Review

Results

03.09.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 3 Prato (Coppa Italia Lega Pro, Group E)

Not a bad performance, but beaten by a superior team who took their chances.

07.09.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 5 Carpi (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

My worst defeat as Santarcangelo manager. We lost it in the second half after pulling it back to 2-1 on 45 minutes with Alessandro Corvesi's first goal for the club

12.09.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 2 - 4 Viareggio (Coppa Italia Lega Pro, Group E)

We took the lead twice though Pedro Rosario's double before being pegged back each time. Then two goals in the last 5 mins killed us off.

16.09.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 3 Cuneo (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

Same old story with this team. Fought well for 70 mins, lost to three late goals.

23.09.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 0 - 0 Valenzana (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

BOOM! No win, no goals, but it still felt like a victory.

23.09.12

Santarcangelo Calcio 1 - 1 Cosenza (Lega Pro Seconda Divisione A)

Luca Onorato hit his first goal of the season to put us 1-0 up. However, José Rocchi let in yet ANOTHER goal at the near post, this time a weak 20 yard effort,
