Season 9: St. Pauli - Part 3
Except few bosman signings that were for backup , I have spent all my money on one young striker, one Mexican guy called Francisco Esquivel.... I would say "money well spent".
Until this match he only got few minutes on the pitch as he was not up with his form, and few days after the game he was caught napping, I did forgive him for the goal against Hamburg and he promised he would never happen again.
Until the game the situation wasn't great at all, with only one win and 2 draws in 7 games I was afraid that we gonna lose. Hamburg was just a little bit better with 3 wins and 2 draws in 7 games. Instead of attaching I went for counter and Esquivel went on for a quick goal... and that was it.
After the Hamburg game we only lost one game out of 5 so on 8th of November we were neck n' neck.
Why I'm writing up until 8th of November because I got a job that I had few hopes to get it this good... Brescia was up again in Seria A, doing what they know to do best: getting beaten by everyone!
In fact their manager was sacked after a 1-1 game against Atalanta. Atalanta was 2nd in the league and Brescia 2nd from bottom with 0 wins in 12 matches and 5 draws. They didn't scored more than one goal in any of the games and their best scorer had only 2 goals...
The only positive thing my assistant had to say about the team was that we have a young squad and they are determined. Determined to get back to Serie B?
The next derby is on 17 march, maybe I can fix the team until that, maybe... this is by far the worst team I got, I got better players in Germany or Spain second league, way better players.
