The Opening Schedule

 

The opening of the Season - Sassuolo

The Friendlies were set and the pressure was on to get the team to understand my tactics and my desires. We have been told by the chairman that we are to aim for mid table but with the team we have we should look for Europa league qualification as a minimum.

The table after 5 games

Lets see if we can maintain this positive start….

A hit and miss progression to the halfway stage.

Half Way Through 1st - SassHalfway Through Table - Sass

We’re at the halfway stage – Despite the dismal level of consistency we are currently 5th. With the second best goals for and with the third best goals conceded. Just need to find a moment to stop the current draws and losses.
