Feralpi Salò – I shouldn’t really be disappointed should I…

feralpi_home… and yet I am. Disappointed that is. Which would seem odd when you consider the ludicrous ease with which we achieved my primary target – surviving our first season in Serie A.

It’s what happened after we survived that ended up leaving me so deflated.

Nevertheless you’d have to consider this a successful season for our small club and it puts us in a great position to strengthen for next year, something we’re already embarking on with some early Bosman transfers and re-structuring off the pitch.

Thankfully for the decision makers, it appears that I finally know what I’m doing on the pitch and, following the tactical change detailed in the last update, we put together a solid second half to my first season in charge.

This update will therefore look at how we got on last season and the changes I’m looking to implement as we head into my second campaign in charge of Feralpi Salò, including a number of transfers that I’ve brought into the club.
