    @Dave_MUFC, so we are finally getting some good deals done. Inglese and Grassi are two rated players on loan from Napoli, especially the latter. We are also after Gervinho (yes, it's him! :lol: ) and Karamoh.

    Squad is not too bas at all now, at least there's a whole load of average teams down the bottom half of the table so it improves Parma's chances. The point deduction overturn has honestly helped things so much, I feel!

    Annoying draw in the first game last week after being 2-0 up, I think SPAL tonight are a tough fixture, but they can do it!

    Think that with Gervinho, Inglese and Biabiany upfront we should cause some teams a lot of problems. Just need them to gain form.

    Parma will return to European competitions. Where they belong.

    Parma were always my favourite Italian team growing up. Had some great squads with the likes of Chiesa, Veron, Buffon and Cannavaro.

    Not a great start for us, but we have many injured players, plus some signings like Inglese and Gervinho, our 2 best players, have just joined us. Just need to gel.

    19 points in 12 games and already 3 big away wins: Inter, Genoa and Torino. Couldn't have asked for more back in Serie A.

    From the fourth division to the 6th place in Serie A in just 3 years. Living the dream!

    So we are 9th and very close to the Europa League zone in our first year back in Serie A.
    D'Aversa is a bit like Simeone: working his magic with not a great team.

    Great season so far, if it carries on there shouldn't be any worries about battling relegation, which is more than anyone could've expected, even more so due to all the off field issues pre season!

    Parma back in Europe, once can dream :drool:

    Although it's going to be a tough few games coming up, Juve, Inter, and Napoli in the next 5 matches! If a point can be nicked from one of them, and Parma beat the other teams in the matches surrounding these, then I can start believing that they can truly challenge for a Europa spot.

    I always keep an eye on their results due to this thread! They seem to be doing rather well and that's good as I remember some of the great players Parma had when I was growing up. All I really know about them now is that they have Gervinho :drool:

    It's important to beat Spal in the next game so even if we didn't make points against Juventus, Inter and Napoli, it wouldn't matter.

    Gervinho is the most decisive player in the league after CR7, imo.

    One of the few times this season I've been free to watch a Parma game and they let a 2-0 lead slip to lose 3-2 in the last 20 mins :annoyed:

    Hard run coming up, think that's their Europa dream gone!

    Just not good enough. Let's just stay up and nothing more. It would be great for the first season back in Serie A.
