Napoli: An Old Love

I like Napoli at a few years ago. I use to play whit them at some years in Fifa 08/09 in PlayStation, and since then I use to like this team. Then when I had the first Football Manager game (2011) I play with them and I love it, so now I will do it again.
And I think I like the team color too, very peaceful.

Jack White: New Napoli Coach

Jack White is a young portuguese coach. He is 29 years old, and have just start his new career with very ambition.
He use to play football in a small portuguese team and he dreamed to became a professional footballer but a serious injury, in his knee, prevent him of follow his dream. The love about football was to big to give up, so he starts study to be a coach.
He is now the new Napoli coach, after Walter Mazzarri have problems whit Aurelio De Laurentiis and be sacked before the start of the season.

I apologize about the bad english, I don't speak fluently but I will do my best so you can understand everything.
In the next update I will show the transfers, friendlys, the team and the ambitions for the season.
I wanted a Napoli story!

Europa League: Quarter finals


Rui Patrício (Sporting CP) - Zuñiga + €1M
Kara (Tromso) - €4,2M
A. Griezmann (Real Sociedad) - €24M
Emiliano Insúa (Sporting CP) - €4M

Zuñiga, to Sporting CP
Morgan De Sanctis, to Udinese - €2,5M
+ some loan players


Napoli 4-1 Napoli Reserves
(Cavani x2, Pandev, Crispino og)

Napoli 1-2 Anderlecht

Dusseldorf 0-2 Napoli
(Hamsik, Behrami)

Verviers 0-3 Napoli
(Cannavaro, Inler, Griezmann)

Dortmund 2-0 Napoli

Cesena 0-5 Napoli

GK: Rui Patrício, Rosati
RB: Maggio, Campagnaro (adapted)

LB: Emiliano Insúa, Dossena
DM: Kara, Donadel
CM: Hamsik, Dzemaili, Inler, Behrami
RW: Lorenzo Insigne
LW: Griezmann
ST: Cavani, Pandev, E.Vargas
Notes - Pandev and Eduardo Vargas can play as wingers. And they probably will play there the most of the times they will be used. Pandev will be the first choice after Cavani for the Striker position, but when Cavani can play he have no chance to enter the team.
Hamsik and Dzemaili could also play as offensive midfielders, but the team will not play so much with that position on the pitch, so it would be very rare and Hamsik would be the first choice for the place.

In the next update I will post the result of the August official games.
The Italian Supercup, Napoli vs Juventus in Beijing, China;
and the first Serie A game this year, away against Atalanta.
Looking good! :)
Keep it going! :D
Finanlly, a Napoli story. Good Luck :D
Good luck with the story.
Thanks for the support :)

Serie A - Round 1 Atalanta 1-2 Napoli Bonaventura 86' Griezmann 1' 9' Carmona (Atalanta) 89' Griezmann Insúa, 2/3 weeks

League Table

Month Report

In the Supercup game Juventus win very close. Napoli had even more shots, but Juventus had more efficiency, and could get the third goal if Rui Patrício didn't save the Vidal penalty. But Juventus had the ball domination of the game and score when need it, so they are the fair winners.
In the first game of Serie A this season, Napoli start the game very well and the new player Griezmann score 2 goals in the first 10 minutes. Then Atalanta get more ball and more shots, but Napoli controled till almost the end, when Atalanta scored and Napoli suffer a little bit in the last minutes.
We have now a pause of 2 weeks, and we have to work to make the team more solid in the pitch.

League Table

Month Report

September began very nice. Two large wins, and the team playing very well and confident. Then an unfair draw in Siena takes the team down. If Napoli deserve the victory against Siena, is true that in the following two games deserve the draw.
The team is failing very good oportunities and making mistakes in the back, and we are paying with points. Next month will be very important to set our objectives in the league and Europe, we have a hard game against Lazio and against Marseille, and we really need to win these games so the team can improve and get into a good moment and a good season.

Serie A - Round 8 Napoli 3-1 Torino Insigne 22', Hamsik 57', Cavani 71' De Feudis 76' Insigne Donadel, 2 months

League Table

Month Report

The team play really better than last month. The first game against Marseille, Napoli dominated but didn't score and the bad luck had still with us. But then finnally a winning time, and the team deserve it. Nice wins along this month and the team is in the fight for the title but still very early in the season, so we have just to stay in this victory cicle.
The next game in Serie A, will be in Milan, against AC Milan a very hard game, and the team is working hard to get out there with a good score.
Great results,keep it up !
