Ross is doing rather well with Parma but is that a bump in the road I see? Catch up with Part 6 if you missed it.
Hello my fellow Parmesans. Cheesy intro I know but I feel like we are family now. We left off last time 3 clear of the chasing pack, well Inter and Juve. And we can’t rest on our laurels.
We win our next two games and the other two can only win one and lose one each to give us a tiny bit of breathing space.
We can’t let this chance to win the league slip and up next is a very winnable game at the Ennio vs Vicenza.
Like a flan in a cupboard we go flat, barely landing a glove on a very stubborn defence.
I want to inject some much-needed energy to the squad. The chairman is a big ballet fan so invites a local ballet school to help the players with mobilty.
This is what happens when you try to show off. What also didn’t help is Kieron Dyer trying to heal the leg with crystals. I blame late night TV.
Without our Brazilian wizard I call upon my dependable Swede to help us out.
Away to Milan is out first test without Den.
A real ding dong of a game. Sibby shows he will survive without his mate on the left.
Another away game, this time Bari. Don’t let the score line fool you. It was a lot closer than it looks.
But only one lose since the winter break gives us a good platform for the run in towards a title.
For some reason (Note from Dave: When the German league is loaded the German teams play their last group game in February) the above draw takes place well after the previous stage, but I’ll take it. We should be just about too strong for the blue side of Glasgow.
Yet another away game, not seen my family in ages, and for 89 mins Jesper is showing us why we shouldn’t worry about Denilsons broken leg.
Not sure what I’m more worried about, the last-minute goal or Sibierski’s injury. It shouldn’t be too bad, and I have cover just not up to that standard.
Finally we are at home, and we want to stay on this unbeaten run.
We send the 35 Sampdoria fans home empty handed. Nice to see Helveg score. Chiesa and Crespo are having great goal scoring seasons. Though if one of them got injured there isn’t much to come in. But we are getting a lot of away games out of the way. Speaking of away games…
Melli is the main man, on top of that the goals are being shared about. I can almost smell the trophy. This sets us up nicely for our trip to Scotland.
We touch down in Glasgow, oddly Dyer has been very professional all week during the build-up. Even wearing a club suit and tie, we don’t have one but its nice to see him put the effort in.
Seems as though it helped. He scores the equaliser after Rangers take the lead with a player I’ve tried to sign many times. Melli scores again and we can go into the home leg confident. Might suggest all the players wear suits and the made-up tie.
Can we do the double? I’m not sure. We are carrying a few injuries and I need to keep Kieron focussed on football.
I end this part early for reasons you will find out next time. You will want to read it.
Ciao for now.
