Season 16 has ended the same way as Season 15 – trophies (they all count even if a play off one) and success! At the Azteca stadium in Mexico City – 85,000 Italians and Turks gathered on what is a cold winters day back in Europe singing their hearts out and with the game failing to deliver 0-0 – it was a second successive play off final penalty shoot out for Samp!
And VICTORY again – this time it was Lukas Skorpuski the newly 88 rated keeper with two saves and Samp scoring all theirs!
“It has been a great season! Started superbly. We have broken the season in 3 x 13 (including the play off final)
PART ONE: New arrivals included Pepe, Albrighton (although at the end of last season – thanks Alex Mcclean), Federico Fernandez and players like Roberto Inglese wo made a minimum contribution.
W5, D6, L2 – Great and solid start for a newly promoted side. Andrea Petagna and LUcas Lima started the season on fire.
PART TWO: We added Ekdal to the side and had a few rises in the youngsters as well. Youth team making the quarter finals of the Youth Cup.
W2, D6, L5
PART THREE: The run to end all runs – got us in the play offs – although we needed a last day win to secure it!
W8, D1, L2
Then a crazy play off semi final!
Then history – where do we go now – great question – side needs improving which means I need to go to market!
