Good man, hopefully you'll be able to win the league this time! One question for you - You seen any good Russians on there? ;)
Maybe, im living in fear because this time last season we were in a great position aswell, only for a terrible run of a few games in Febuary/March took us off the pace. Hopefully now Cardozo dosent let up in his goal-scoring frenzy lol.


Unfortunatly I dont think many Russians play in Italy XD, if you were any other Russian club I would say the likes of Dzagoev an Akinfeev but you already have them :S.

Man Utd come out on top


Fiorentina 0-1 Manchester Untied

Sebastien Frey's Own Goal has given the Red Devils a crucial away goal to take back to Old Trafford in two weeks time. Man of the Match Zoran Tosic claimed the goal at the time, after his cross Dainelli failed to deal with and it hit off the crossbar and boucned back off Frey and in to the goal. The goal has since been awarded as a own goal to Frey. The Red Devils were the better team and La Viola need to buckle up their ideas if they hope to progress to the Quarter Finals.

La Viola's 36-game run finishes




Fiorentina 1-2 Palermo


Argentinian Javier Pastore was the man responsible for ending Fiorentina's record 36-game unbeaten league run last night. Scoring a brace for victory to Palermo at the Artemio Franchi. La Viola were poor all over the park and despite having a perfectly good goal by Cardozo ruled out for offside, were the poorer side on the night.

A/N: Im scared now, the same time last season we fell apart aswell. Going to ring the changes for the next game, Ibisevic and Carlos Eduardo are back from long-term injuries and hopefully they can rescue me!

Fiorentina progress after extra time battle


Manchester United 0-2 Fiorentina (After Extra Time) Fiorentina win 2-1 on Aggregate

Fiorentina progress to face Real Madrid in the quarter finals of the Champions League after a extra-time win over the Red Devils in Manchester last night.

Fiorentina played a more attacking system at Old Trafford, playing the duo of Oscar Cardozo and Vedad Ibisevic up front, while Manchester United stuck with the same line-up that had won them the game in Florence a fortnight ago.

The teams batttled for a hour, both having chances but failing to convert them. Joseba Llorente came on for the poor Ibisevic and immediatley had a impact. The wonderful Carlos Eduardo took the ball by Wes Brown and played it through to Llorente and the Basque finished by Foster.

Extra-time was a dog fight. Both teams slugging it out against each other. Dimitar Berbatov thought he put his team ahead, only for it to be ruled out questionably offside. Replays shown that Nicolas Otamendi was keeping the Bulgarian onside. Joseba Llorente popped up again to score after Cardozo knocked the ball on and he beat the on-rushing Foster to score the winner for La Viola.

La Viola back to Top form



Fiorentina 3-0 Cagliari

Fiorentina's sintilating first half display gave them a comfortable win in Florence last night. Goal-Scoring defender Dario Dainelli gave them the lead with a corner after 10 minutes. A wonderful piece of Creativity from 33-year old vetran Cristiano Zanetti found Monotolivo who beat the offside trap and had a easy finish. The final goal of the game was a screamer from 30 yards from £15M Left-Back Salvatore Bocchetii.

ITS FIORENTINA'S TO LOSE



Inter Milan 2-3 Fiorentina

Fiorentina have taken a huge step to winning the Serie A after a inspirational comeback against Inter Milan at the San Siro on Sunday Evening. La Viola seemed to have all the odds against them, with Ricardo Montolivo, Oscar Cardozo and Arda Turan all missing through Suspension.

Wesley Sneijder gave the Home side the lead with a fantastic goal from nearly 35 yards and a lay-off from Maicon. After Half-Time Inter were cruising and Dejan Stankovic looked like he had won Inter the game with a driven shot by the helpless Frey.

Only 3 minutes later however, La Viola were given hope. As Vargas rose above Macion at the back post to header in from Di Maria's great cross from the right. Like against Manchester Untied, Joseba Llorente came on after the hour mark for Zanetti, as shootie seemed to go for a more attacking approach with 2 strikers. With 10 minutes to go, after a nice one-two by Di Maria to Carlos Eduardo the Brazillian played a fantastic ball to Llorente who timed his run to perfection and finished.

A matter of minutes later Lucio put Cesar under needless pressure with a backpass with Llorente chased down. Cesar rushed his clearance only for it to go straight to Angelo Palombo who immediatley played it back in to the now on-side Llorente whos finishing was clinical. La Viola are now 4 points ahead of their rivals with 3 games remaining.

Attendance: 65783

Man of the Match: Joseba Llorente (Fiorentina)


A/N: I loved this game, I resigned myself to defeat after they scored the second and I decided to just go all out and bring on another Striker. And what a decsion it was! Was a bit lucky with Cesar's mistake but it makes up for Frey's stupid one earlier on in the season aswell!

It worked yeah, however it caused my computer and my game a great deal of lag. And untill I can get a good recording software with hardly any lag its on ice. But it shouldnt be too much hassle to find a new one :D

As for Gourcuff, what settings are you playing him as atm? (Write in your thread or PM me (H) )

Fiorentina retain cup


Fiorentina 2-1 Inter Milan (After Extra Time, 90 Mins score: 1-1)

Fiorentina have retained the Coppa Italia are now look on course for a Domestic double after beating Inter at the Stadio Olimpico last night.

Inter took the lead after Make-Shift defender Angelo Palombo fouled Mario Balotelli in the area, and Sulley Muntari converted the penalty. Inter continued to press and found themselves 1-0 ahead going into Half-Time.

Inter picked off from where they left in the 1st half and continued to pressure the Viola goal. Samuel Eto bringing a fantastic save from Sebastien Frey. The turning point came in the second half when Diego Milito was shown a Straight red card after hitting out at Dario Dainelli. The Argentinian had been subject to many fouls during the game and it is thought that his fustration had boiled over.

Fiorentina now pressed on and made their pressure count when a corner whipped in by Ricardo Montolivo found Salvatore Bocchetti at the back post, who hit it back across goal and smashed off Julio Cesar's back and into the back of the net.

Extra-Time was to decide this game, and a extra man proved to much for the 10 tired Inter Milan players in extra time, who were forced to sit back.

Fresh super sub Joseba Llorente proved vital again as he ran the Inter defence ragid and Inter went down to 9 men when Muntari was sent off for a second bookable offence on the Basque, then from the resulting free kick Bocchetti crosses it into the near post where 2nd Half Substitute Juan Manuel Vargas rose above Julio Cesar and Lee Wallace to get a nod on the ball and into the back of the net despite a galliant effort from Walter Samuel to clear it off the line.

Fiorentina held on for a historic Retainment and one half of the double is complete.

Fiorentina are champions



Fiorentina 2-0 Brescia

Inter Milan's 5 year Empire over Italian football has collapsed following Fiorentina's win over Brescia at the Artemio Franchi last night.

Dario Dainelli scored both the goals from corners as La Viola players, staff and fans all celebrated at the end of the game as Fiorentina captain Dario Dainelli picked up the Serie A throphy at the end of the game and held it aloft to fans. The Goalscoring defender said "I cannot describe what im feeling, two seasons ago I was on my way out of this club. But look where I am now and I have to thank shootie for all of this." The manager himself was unavailible for comment however this win ranks him as the best Irish manager of all time.

Its not all fun and games yet for Fiorentina as they travel to Atalanta on the final day of the season.
