Serie A: Survival or slaughter?

In my previous post I wrote an analysis of Trieste’s first five games in Serie A, and how we had got off to a very disappointing start and lost each encounter.

  • Upgrading our backroom staff
  • Scouting improvements to give better quality to targets
  • Summer recruitment
