One week later Novara arrives in Tardini: ” I want that team win, putting the right determination to do it”, so D’Avesa says in Collecchio press conference. He will be satisfied. Parma will make a personality performance , winning 3-0. First to score is Captain in first half, then Calaiò on penalty, then Scavone in the second half. “We gave a strong signal , we are here and always go into the pitch with the will to win”. So Siligardi, one of best of the match, explains.

In Brescia we loose 2-1. Anyway the good news is return to goal by Fabio Ceravolo, for the temporary 1-1. An important goal, at least for forward moral, that suffered for an injury against Virtus Entella and had a stop. His coming back was faster than supposed: “Mine was a return to goal, but the great regret is that we lost this match since the group mission is the most important one. Anyway this personal good news makes me happy, because I had three hard months. I take this chance to thank all the people that gave me their support and expecially physiotherapists and all Parma medical staff”. he tells.

“La Belva”  unlocked and give us a great help in next game, when in Ennio Parma waits for Perugia. Former Parma player Alberto Cerri scores under Curva Nord the temporary 0-1 and he don’t exult. Crusaders don’t give up and and find the draw by penalty with second straight Ceravolo goal: 1-1. Society decides for a retreat in Collecchio.

EPISODE 3 – “Last lost in Tardini”

Parma come back from Venice with three important points and on 29th september night match plays against Salernitana. Crusaders starts well, very well. At the end of the first half we have scored two goals with defencders: Di Cesare at 17° and Lucarelli at 33°. But in the second half our opponents grow. Sprocari reopen the match and then, in seven minutes, from 71°and 78° we loose two players: Di Cesare and iacoponi are sent out with red card, then Vitale draw on penalty. Parma defends and at the end is one point. “We throw away a match that we dominated in the first half and for being too presumptuous and having a bad attitude in the second half. After the break we came back too lifeless and we can’t allow this” so Captain Lucarelli warn.
We need the right pressure also because next match is on Palermo pitch, one of most difficult away matches of the season. Rosanero show immediately their intentions, leading the match with La Gumina after ten minutes. Crusaders draw with Gagliolo at 70° with a head shot. Gagliolo scores also at the end of the match but the referee declare void the goal: it ends 1-1. “After the draw, in the pitch we had the feeling that we could win the match. We attacked a lot and had our chances” so explains Riccardo Gagliolo after the final whistle.

Home match with Pescara will be historical in his own way: it will be last home defeat of the season. Parma can’t know that and, by the way, after the Brugman joke five minutes before the end of the match, in press conference AD Luca Carra says: “I saw a team that played and that improved compared with last matches. All together we hav to get out this situation”.
Call to unity, in addition to a renewed trust in D’Aversa, gives good effects with three straight victories, that relaunch classification and moral. We start with Virtus Entella. 21st October will be a three points evening but it opens with Ceravolo injury: forward was back since the beginning but after 28 minutes he have to leave the pitch. Crusaders plays also for the teammate and, again, is the Captain to let us lead the match: first half we are 0-1. Lupi draw but in the final Calaiò and Insigne score: 1-3 !

Foggia will be next week match and it will be a good match: 0-3 with Gagliolo, Insigne and Calaiò. Insigne 0-2 goal is most important of the match and one of most beautiful of the season: “We started a growin program, tonight we continued what we beginned to do in past days. It is a long way journey, we already played one hour great football against Salernitana, coming here in such an important stadium with such a hot tifosi and making this performance is synonymous of personality”, Mister D’Aversa is satisfied.

It is Avellino then: 2-0. Di Gaudio, at his first goal with our colors, then Insigne, third straight goal of the season in last minutes like against Virtus Entella. “We closed very well this three matches. Surely we were not bad when we lost and now we are not phenomenals. We need continuity and play every match like this with concentration and determination. Just acting this way we can get satisfaction”. This is Di Gaudio comment.

EPISODE 2 – “United in difficulties”

Meantime transfer market close and Parma Calcio have time to do the last strike: Fabio Ceravolo, known as “la Belva” (the Beast, ndt) arrives from Benevento: “I chose this team because my flame have always to stand switched on. When you hear Parma is interested in you, you can not regret…”

After victorious match in Tardini for Crusaders comes first away match, against Novara. In Collecchio, on 2nd September, it is the day of the debut of… the new official Bus, driven by historical driver Aldo. Before leaving to Piedmont, D’Aversa takes stock of the situation in press conference: “We passed the first obstacle, now we have to try doing the best possible in other 41 that still miss to the end. Pressures don’t have to worry, but encourage us. Our will, in this season, is to do our best. It will be clearly fundamental to keep balance when difficulties will come. We could pass obstacles on our way only thinking with serenity to daily work”.
Also second obstacle is passed: on 3rd September Parma beat Novara. Crusaders, that play in Piola Stadium for the first time in the season with third red kit (and still without sponsorship, but will arrive soon) win 0-1. He will be Antonino Barillà to score the winning goal from a corner scheme. It is such an important and difficult victory for Parma, considering that Novara got one post for half time with Ronaldo and Macheda: “We fought on every ball until the end. The goal, that I dedicate to my daughter, it is the proof of weekly work of everybody. So, this is not a victory in the sign of Barillà, but in the sign of Parma Calcio, that fought until 90° bringing back three points” so explains the midfielder after the match.

Parma, after two matches won, on third day come back to Tardini against Brescia. D’Aversa says: “We don’t have to undervalue this match, they have really good young players. It will be a more difficult match than the two before”. The rain comes to mess things, on 10th September a big storm pass over Parma and it is difficult to play, especially in second half. Parma vs Brescia is one of that matches in which who scores first, win. And Brescia do that, at 59° with Ferrante.
“We are sad not to neither draw. Field was unplayable, anyway we should have conquer at least a draw. In the first half we made the match and tried to do what we trained for, arriving to score” will explain at the end Iacoponi.

Ransom doesn’t arrive soon. After first seasonal defeat, two more will come. In Perugia, in second away match of the season it ends 0-3: Han in the first half and Bonaiuto scores two goals in the second half: “Difference was made by determination in doing things, we did not win a tackle in the first half. At the beginning of the match wwe had two chances to score, but I didn’t like at all determination, that completely lack.” Explains D’Aversa after the match.
Other home match, other defeat: now is Empoli to beat us. On 19th september we lost in Tardini 1-2: Tuscans forward with Caputo, then Captain Lucarelli draws. Joy is short because Simic scores again for Empoli. Lucarelli talks: “Best medicine is daily hard work, with humilty and with desire to get out this moment. But we have to go there with the desire to make good result. Attitude, hunger and spite are important to win”.
It is not a simple moment: after two victories, three defeats in five matches, and on 23rd September we go in Penzo Stadium against Venezia, rival in Lega Pro in the past season. “We have to make the pitch talk and get out this difficult moment” explains D’Aversa. And the pitch says that getting out of difficulties is possible, standing united. match is not easy, Neroverdi led by Pippo Inzaghi are well organized.

Parma wants victory and Di Cesare scores from a corner kicked by Scozzarella: 0-1 for us.”Today it was important to restart, after tre defeats. In past season, at one period, Benevento lost seven matches, then was promoted to Serie A”. So “Emperor” Di Cesare said at the end of the match. A prophecy?
