Rivalry,It's not just a game, it's what makes the game
Parma F.C. v Bologna
A Brief History of our most fiercest rivals
The rivalry spurns from the fact they're the two largest city's in there area, they match up with each other in almost every catagory, with titles won etc, who ever wins this game has bragging rights, and as of now, Bologna own bragging rights!
The rivalry between Bologna and Parma was reignited in Parma, the game was at night and the air was cold but the fans were on fire, the passion on either sides was intense, the spectacle was not only on the pitch but in the stands, never have you seen such a crowd want to have one over there opponents, the players were feeding off the fire churning between there respective fans.
The match was clearly dominated by bologna from start to finish, Parma never had a chance. Santiago Garcia scored his first goal for the club in our biggest game yet, the goal proved to be the winner yet if it wasn't for 3 posters and a missed penalty this game would have been over by half time, the players showed immense quality throughout the night the game.
The game showed passion throughout the game, especially by manager Christian Vieri, he was jubilant and was unable to hide his happiness from the camera, embracing everyone at the end of the game it just showed how much it meant for all involved.
The game showed how effective we are when we're on, we held 52% of possession but created 7 shots with 4 on target we simply dominated, was not the quantity of possesion but the quality, and our quality was class.
Our Midfield showed that they're no pushovers on the defensive side of the ball which was rather suprising due to the fact we only have 1 natural defensive midfielder in our line up. They stood up which we can only be proud of.
Our defense is showing to be quite stingy, just doesn't put out unfortunately for the guys on the other team, an average rating of 7.30 on our back 4 is great and those ratings just prove it.
For future games we'll be focusing on team cohesion and ball control to ensure we don't slack off over our fortnight off for international friendly's.
