Figli Della Dea

Figli Della Dea – “sons of the goddess” (according to google translate) – is not intended to be any sort of grand scheme that will leave you in awe. It’s a very simple solution to a very simple problem. Earlier in my updates of the 2022/23 season I mentioned my concerns about the player turnover… Continue reading Figli Della Dea

La Dea: 2022/23 Ritorno

My third season with Atalanta comes to an end (almost…) and there’s so much to mention. Aside from the results, there’s also the matter of how I solved one of the problem I mentioned in my last post. Am I happy yet? Almost. SEEING OUT THE WINTER TRANSFER WINDOW I had mentioned my concerns about… Continue reading La Dea: 2022/23 Ritorno

La Dea: 2022/23 Andata

I want to be happy about how the season has gone so far and, in reality, I should be but there’s just something nagging in the back of my mind about how it’s not going how I would have hoped. Am I being dramatic? Maybe. I’ll let you make your own mind up. DEADLINE DAY… Continue reading La Dea: 2022/23 Andata

La Dea: 2022/23 Pre-Season

Season three feels like it should be a pivotal one in this save. In back to back seasons we’ve progressed in the league and also shown we are no pushovers in the Champions League group stages. This time around we need to start closing the gap on the title race, move beyond the first knockout… Continue reading La Dea: 2022/23 Pre-Season

La Dea: 2021/22 Ritorno

This time last season it was a cautionary tale of not acting in the January transfer window. This time around I completed all my incoming business early as I discussed in the last update. The only action to happen after this point was the sale of Matteo Pessina to Torino for the sum of £9.5m,… Continue reading La Dea: 2021/22 Ritorno

La Dea: 2021/22 Andata

Two half transfer windows, a solid showing domestically and an epic Champions League group stage are what’s on offer in this blog. THE WONDERKIDAVINGA CHRONICLES Before the summer transfer window had finished, there was time for two more signings to be made. With the loss of Djimsiti and Tolói, we were light at the back… Continue reading La Dea: 2021/22 Andata

La Dea: 2021/22 Pre-Season

I’d anticipated that it would be a busy summer for us and that prediction certainly came true. We had a coveted squad and I had to be active in replacing any outgoing players. So far, I’m pleased with the business done but only time will tell if I’ve made the right decisions. OUTGOING TRANSFERS The… Continue reading La Dea: 2021/22 Pre-Season

La Dea: 2020/21 Ritorno

As Andata turns to Ritorno, so also my attention was on the Winter Transfer Window. This will hardly be an opinion that breaks on new ground but I do firmly believe that the business you do in January defines your season’s outcome, potentially more so than what happens in summer. JANUARY MOVES – OR LACK… Continue reading La Dea: 2020/21 Ritorno

La Dea: 2020/21 Andata

Serie A is delightfully formatted into a proper round-robin format. A team will play each of the other 19 teams in the first half of the season (Andata) before facing off against each again in the same order in the second half of the season (Ritorno). TALKING TACTICS Where would a first season post be… Continue reading La Dea: 2020/21 Andata
