Was there ever any doubt? Well, yes, there was but in the end we saw the job through. The start of the 8 game run-in started poorly with two 1-1 draws but a draw and a defeat for Cremonese put us back to the top of the table. From there on we played some of our best football of the season and won the remaining 6 games. To be fair to Cremonese they won 4 of the remaining 5 but a 2-1 home defeat to Tuttocuoio (an affiliate of ours) meant we would win the title by 3 points.
First of all I’m delighted to be avoiding the nightmare of those playoffs. However, we did have the joy of the Serie C Super Cup where the 3 league winners playoff in a mini-league for, frankly, no reason wahtsoever. Victories over Reggiana (1-0) and a draw with Foggia (1-1) meant we finished the season on a 12 match unbeaten run. Ettore Mendicino managed to claim our top goalscorer award with 23, 3 ahead of both Bezzy and Fabby.
I signed a new contract with The Millers but it’s going to be a massive summer. i assume we’ll have to sell Mattias Andersson but that won’t be enough to get us back in the black. The board are going to need to invest money but I don’t think they will. if they don’t my position may become untenable.
