SS Lazio - Vola Aquilotta mia, Vola.

An anti conformistic Lazio story.

I decided to start a Lazio story due to all the AS Roma bandwagoning going on as of their recent wealth being, Lazio has been put in the shadow and since I like to be anti-conformistic I'll be writing one about Lazio, with a small twist...

Lazios Coppa Italia victory over rivals AS Roma has boosted the teams morale overloading the teams ambitions, and thus last season completely underachieving with Eddy Reja coming in to try and save the situation from Petkovics mess. Unfortunately Reja was not given the transfer budget he asked for, and Lotito was found having to think of a replacement. And then it hit him, what better way to reconciliate himself with the fans? Bring in fan favorite PAUL GASCOIGNE, ex Lazio player in the Seasons 92'-95'.

"Gazza"'s first words were obviously "Vola Aquilotta mia,vola!" (translating to fly my little eagle, fly) He promised the fans attractive football, silverware, and years of success to come... But was he overshooting it?

Tactics Overlay!

I'll be playing an Offensive 4-2-3-1 (Bandwagoning ftw)

Set Pieces:
Corners - Near Post.
Free Kicks - Best Header.

Transfer Targets + For Sale List + Bids COMING SOON! Stay tuned ;)
Good luck man, I'll follow although it's Lazio :P

Here we go, the transfer window baby! I'm looking for two things, an AMC & a fullback - my budget is of only 18m (It was 12m but I asked for more, they'll probably want me to place in top 5 of table).
I transfer listed Emiliano Alfaro & Berisha, but no one ever came to bid for them...

But lets get right down to business: TRANSFER TARGETS.
Nicolas Gaitan 25yr old Argentinian L-AMC
Ricky Alvarez 26yr old Argentinian AMC
Sofiane Feghouli 23yr old Algerinian AMC
Jonathan Silva 19yr old Argentinian LWB
Let's take a minute to look away from transfers to see how Gazza's Lazio did throughout all its friendlies though, shall we?
Getafe vs Lazio 2-1
Lazio vs Slava 3-0
La Berrichonne vs Lazio 1-7
Siena vs Lazio 0-2
Lazio vs Espanyol 1-2
Aversa Normanna vs Lazio 0-6

Not bad overall, the youngesters especially Keità & Perea did very well.

As the days past, I started to receive offers for players...

- Benfica came knocking on the door for Candreva, offering 12m? No way, Josè.
- Arsenal enquired about Candreva... Well how about you give me 40m? No? Oh well.
- OM bid 2.8 for Ciani, I negotiated 5m and we found ourselves at 4.2m.

Meanwhile, on the arrivals...

Benfica Accepts! 9.25m transfer for Nicolas Gaitan to Lazio! Pauls' first signing ever!

Estudiantes Accept cheap 3.5m bid for Jonathan Silva, completing the roster for Paul for now.

- Transfers out for Now -
Ciani to OM for 4.2m
Sani Emmanuel on Loan

Coming Soon:
Italian Super Cup debut vs Juve?!? Gascoigne is READY, BABY.
Good luck fellow Lazio writer! I hope Gazza isn't on the beers during the job! ;)

Gascoigne missing?! Found in a Pub 15mins before the Supercoppa Italia match vs Juventus.

Gazza's at it again, he had been seen leaving the training grounds early in the past few days, and now it is openly known why: His achaholic addiction is still stronger than ever, and before such an important match Paul presented himself in rather poor conditions, it would seem like his Assistant Manager Carlton Palmer.


18' Llorente
88' Candreva
Klose out for 2-3 weeks.
Penalty Shoot Out Victory for Lazio 0-3

Luck on Gazzas side! Lazio fans rejoice as they lift their 2nd trophy after the Coppa Italia vs Roma, and Gascoignes name is all over fans lips. Who would have guessed it? The pre-match premises were all against Lazio, but after a tied game, where Lazio looked stronger in 2nd half and managed to take it to extra time and to penalties, they have overcomed favorites Juventus for the Supercoppa d'Italia trophy - a great morale boost to start off the Season with!

Leverkusen bid for Radu but I rejected the 4.2m, as he was a key player for the team.
Shame about the alcohol, but a good result nevertheless :)

Gazza means to go on as he started.
Lazio complete Bafetimbi Gomis signing for 3.6m and Season Ticket Sales go up!

The league finally opens up, and Lazio is ready to start their season against Livorno!

Andrè Dias 3'
Benassi 39'
Candreva 59'
Andrè Dias

Not much to say, solid defending Dias is doing both attacking and defending at top notch levels, and Candreva maintains form! They're both in Serie A team of the week aswell.

Nicolas Gaitan 9', 50'
Cristian Ledesma 13'
Loric Cana 57'
Gilardino 60'
Andrè Dias 71'
Giuseppe Sculli 90'
Nicolas Gaitan, the new signing!

Wow 5 goals, the offensive work was doing great things at the moment and the new signing was shining, Gazza had this to say regarding the victory "It's a fockin' great result meyt, anyone who thinks we aren't meant to challenge for the title is just a jelous wank", a colorful press conference.

Heres the League Table then (Shocking AC Milan so far)

That's all for the first 2 months, transfer window is over and now the real challenge begins! Stay tuned for September monthly update :)
Really nice start to your story, even if it's SS Lazio I will still follow :P
Good start, and that Lyon kit Gomis is wearing sure is interesting!
Good start mate, keep it up :P
Very good signings and a very good start!
Good start ! And nice singings !
