Sampdoria can’t really complain about their first season back in Division 4. Flying at the start but 1 win in the last 6 really makes it tough.
Beating Juventus in the cup and having a favorable draw in the 4th Round gives us some decisions to make but staying up was the priority can I really be disappointed with the start?
Lucas Lima and Andrea Petagna started season on fire but have dropped off lately which is concerning. We feel the signing of Pepe has been key and are hopeful the good form of Webster, Zappa and Maehle in real life will see all of them get rises in rating in the coming months helping us to push on next season and push for a potential title.
In midfield Gonalons is leaving us in exchange for Ekdal in a deal with Swansea in the coming weeks as soon as one or both of us are out of the cup. Lemina is emerging as a real leader in real life in a very young and exciting Nice team and Thorsby will only improve. Can Shelvey keep his 88? Who knows?
Ratings wise out greatest worry is in that forward line. Time will tell. But great start for Sampdoria overall!
Always a good target to consolidate after a promotion
