8: Agropoli floundering

15 January 2017
Agropoli, Italy

Agropoli look as comfortable as a fish in the bottom of a boat. They are flopping around without any seeming purpose and their opening four wins on the bounce is but a distant memory. Mr Baddragon looks totally out of his depth and seems powerless to revive the fortunes of his team.

~John Chen, Saudi FM News Network

Our problems stem from the loss of Stefano Pilloni who was the heartbeat on the right flank.  Since he has been out with a broken leg we have looked sadly one dimensional and ineffective. I have some serious work to do to turn this around.

As it happened

Serie D – Ginome I – Match 19/36

S01-205

After our poor showing last time out, 15th placed A.S.D. Due Torri offer a stern challenge for us. Do we have the toughness to bounce back.

S01-206

I stick with the narrow diamond again. The team appears to pick itself .

S01-208

We threw away a 3-0 lead in the last 30 minutes. Once again the defensive weakness of our side was shown up especially with the absence of Pilloni at right back.

S01-207

The fact that I have no under 18 players available to allow me to not play Ferrari cost us in this game. That was a match that we should have closed out but didn’t.

De Pascalis is out with a virus for a couple of weeks.

A player who was never going to be good enough. Moved on!

S01-213

Not in the age group that we are actively looking, however he will allow us to play a 4-4-2 or 4-4-1-1.

S01-214

Di Santo is a good player and will be a valuable asset for the side.

S01-216

This boy is a wild card and may not be quite good enough for the first team. He offers another central defence option and is under 18 which helps as well.

S01-217

May not make it in the first team, but he is worth looking at.

S01-218

Corsi is another youngster who will come onto the bench to allow us to rotate the players better.

S01-219

Serie D – Ginome I – Match 20/36

S01-212

After our poor showing last time out we will have our work cut out for us here as we face fourth placed A.P.D. Leonfortese.

S01-220

Once again we come out with the narrow diamond.  Corsi gets to start his first game for the club.

S01-222

We could easily have lost the game 3-0 if it wasn’t for a fine effort from our keeper.

S01-221

In the end we bagged a lucky draw in a game where they dominated.

S01-223

S01-224

Califano is being sent out on loan to get some games under his belt.

Injury Update

S01-225

Donato Gaeta has not made a big impact and has only scored a solitary goal.

Serie D – Ginome I – Match 21/36

S01-226

Last time out against A.S.D. Acireale Calcio we ran out 2-1 winners. After our poor run of form it would be nice to repeat that feat.

S01-227

Corsi retains his place allowing De Pascalis to come in in place of Ferrari. I want to get ahead and then see if we can not hold onto the lead.

S01-229

Another second half collapse sees us languishing in the relegation zone. I am starting to believe that we may be headed for the drop here.

S01-228

We made most of the play but our inability to deal with the cross cost us.  The match was fairly even apart from that fact.

S01-230
