Player of the Month
This man has been in terrific form this month and has really helped power Parma towards the first promotion of Paolo Vanoli’s reign. Despite not having the best start to the season as he didn’t fit the tactic, his attitude has been the main reason why he has impressed so much of late and after scoring twice over the course of February, Francesco Corapi is the deserved winner of February’s Player of the Month award.
InjuriesRiccardo Musetti. The forward who started the season in good form, will most likely miss the rest of the campaign after tearing ligaments in his knee, meaning he may well have played his last game for Parma as manager Paolo Vanoli looks to rebuild his squad in the coming months.
Simone Corazza. The new signing, was an unfortunate casualty this month, although he will only miss another three weeks and will most likely be back for the big fixtures at the end of the season, once his twisted ankle recovers.
As we enter the final ten games of the Serie D season, it is a more important month than ever before for Parma. Sitting three points clear of second placed Forli, Paolo Vanoli’s men will be hoping to be victorious against Imolese in their first game of March on the road, before they meet Correggese for the return game against the team they thrashed 7-2 earlier in the season. Lentigione who are bravely battling against the drop this season are next up for Parma at the Ennio Tardini, in their only home game of the month. However the biggest game of the month comes on the 23rd as promotion chasing Forli entertain Parma in a huge game which could go a long way to deciding who is promoted to the Lega Pro next season.
Other News14.02.2016: It wasn’t a happy valentines day for two managers in Serie D this year as Legnago took the decision to sack Andrea Orecchia with the team lying in 19th position in the Girone.
14.02.2016: Meanwhile Virtus Castelfranco also parted ways with their manager as Marcello Chezzi was fired by his own father with the club sitting in 16th and a relegation play off place.
21.02.2016: In one of the more surprising managerial casualties of the season, Altovicentino took the decision to sack Mauro Zironelli after 27 games, with the previously predicted promotion candidates, lying in 9th in Serie D Girone D.
21.02.2016: Meanwhile Ribelle, previously predicted to finish 7th, took the decision to remove Mauro Antonioli from their managerial position, with the club languishing in the relegation play off spots.
It’s been a huge month where we’ve extended our stay at the top of the table which is excellent and exactly what we all want to see. However there have been two results, against Ravenna and Altovicentino that we should have done better in and the fact we’ve lost both of those games is really frustrating and quite saddening really. However the performances have been good across all the games we’ve played this month, and if we can maintain that level of performance we will be very close to promotion come the end of next month because that is what our performances at the moment deserve.
