Justice: They were very poor all season long

ScottT: Can't add them now, needs to be consistent throughout ha
Some huge performances, especially bagging that many goals this season. Interesting to see how many keep their spots in Serie A
Some great individual performers to go alongside a great collective team performance throughout the season. A number of reasons to be positive heading into new season and I can't wait to see how Serie A treats you.

Schiappacasse Signs With Brescia

Former Atletico Madrid player Nicolas Schiappacasse is set for the Serie A

• The 20-year-old will earn €4,000 per week with Brescia
• Schiappacasse scored five goals last season while on loan
• He is expected to compete with Donnarumma and Torregrossa for a starting role

In their first move of the transfer window, Brescia have signed 20-year-old striker Nicolas Schiappacasse on a free transfer.

Schiappacasse is a versatile forward who made his first team debut as a 16-year-old for River Plate Montevideo. The next step in his career saw him move to Spain to join Athletico Madrid where he spent two seasons going out on loan once before being released.

"I am thrilled to be in Italy and getting the opportunity to play in the Serie A'. said Schiappacasse. "I believe this is the league where I can truly make a name for myself." he added.

Schiappacasse is eligible for both Italy and Uruguay and has currently received 32 caps for Uruguay at the youth level, scoring 16 goals. His style has been compared to Argentinian legend Carlos Tevez with a touch of Liverpool's Roberto Firmino.


Jack: I will have to keep most of the squad, not really enough money in the budget to make big changes

ScottT: I am hopeful of staying up but not much else
His name tells me he will win the ballon d'or :D !
That is a massive signing to make, he'll become an instant star for you!
Wow! I like how your FM story is written. Definitely can learn a thing or two. Good luck for your save and I hope you win story of the month soon!
Having finally caught up with the story, I enjoyed it alot. Great job on winning promotion matching Brescia's promotion today :D

The signing of Schiappacasse is a great coup and could help keep you in the league next season!
An excellent signing given his hype and potential. If he can knuckle down in your squad, he has the ability to become a vital player in your side.

Congratulations on your 100th reply, too. ;)
