What a month as we get our first ever unbeaten month. We claim a bit win over Inter to get through in the Coppa Italia. We were really made to work for it as Inter went ahead through a penalty in the 35th minute. I had strong words with the team at half time and it seemed to work as Cuenca got the important goal in the 66th minute to get us back in with a chance. Its the usual man who wins the game for us with an excellent brace in the space of 5 minutes to win the game 3-1 and see's us into the next round to play Roma.
hot off the back of the Inter game with the team full of confidence Esposito gets the only goal of the game to get the 3 points from Fiorentina. We held onto this confidence right through to the Roma match where Gomez got us off to a great start when he scored a screamer in the 30th minute. After half time Almada got brought down in the ox just before he pulled the trigger. He got the best of them though as he slotted home the resulting penalty. Cuenca then rose above the defence to nod home in the 89th minute to see us through to the Quarter Finals.
We round off the month with a good win against Atalanta where Esposito and Marin get the goals for us before Toloi pulls one back.
We shifted a lot of dead wood from the club to free up some transfer cash and wages to help strengthen the squad.
We work hard during the transfer window to search out and bring in players where necessary. The big signing of the window though has to be Jerome Onguene from Salzburg and we activate his release clause to bring him into shore up our defence. We also moved to make Vignato for £10 miilon. On deadline day we also brought in Tripaldelli on loan with a future transfer fee of £3.7 million being optional. Fianlly we bring in Moussa Wague on loan from Barcelona on loan with again a future optional transfer fee of £7 million. I see him as a natural replacement for Darmian who we will probably look to sell at the end of the season.
ScottT Fingers crossed as it will be the start of being able to get some decent cash into the club. Yeah they shipped out a lot of players in the summer.
