I don't know why I decided to pick Palermo, I didn't know many of the players but I wanted to play in Serie A and didn't want to just go with the usual Juventus or Roma. My first signing was Kelechi Iheanacho on Loan from Man City. In 3 friendly games he scored 11 goals and so I put him in the first team where he scored a hattrick on his debut against Carpi. My others signings were Julian Weigl on loan from Dortmund and Morgan Amalfitano on a free transfer. I started the season well winning 9 of my first 11 games but then a 4-0 loss to Inter and I went on a losing streak. In January I signed Michu, I don't really know why but it was just and Available player I'd heard of. He scored 7 goals in his first 11 games and Iheanacho picked up his scoring once more. It then got down to the last game of the season. I needed to beat Genoa and hope Fiorentina lost to Udinese in order to secure a champions league spot. In the first 20 minutes I went 2-0 down, however Fiorentina were losing 1-0 aswell. Iheanacho scored just before half time and at HT I took off Vitiello (A Defender) and brought on Robin Quaison (An Attacking Mid) Quaison scored at around 60 mins and it was 2-2. Then Genoa got and penalty in the 70th minute. It was saved by Viviano however I had my CDM (Weigl) Sent off. In the 88th minute Franco Vazquez belted one in the top corner from the edge of the box and I won the game 3-2. I was so excited. Then I looked and the Fiorentina score and they had beaten Udinese 3-1. Never Mind.
