EPISODE 6 – “Sliding Doors”
On Friday 16th February the team leaves Collecchio technical centre direct to Empoli. If it is true that every season has a turning point, away match in Castellani is our one. Parma loose 0-4: D’Aversa, after the match, is clear: ” we are sad, we have to shut up and work.” then in press conference he speaks about our targets: ” what makes me trust in the future is that in difficult moments we always made good things. Now everything is painted black , we miss some certainties , but I ask to guy to thing only about tomorrow match not considering what happened”.
In Ennio against Venezia we draw 1-1. Gagliolo take the post in the first half, Venezia in the secondo half go forward with Firenze, then is Calaiò to score the draw by penalty. Scozzarella says: “I never stop to trust on our reacting power. I live daily with my team mates and I know our personality skills, we train well. We are hard working guys.”
There is a lot to work on, because next Monday we have match in Salerno. Parma do his best wining 0-1 with the first gal od Dei. This is a performance in which less seen players had chances to step the pitch, as D’aVersa underlines: “Happiness for a trainers is to see in the pitch players like Frediani or Anastasio, that had few chances but that work hard day by day, and this is a prize for their dedication… like Vacca too, it was not easy to get in in such a difficult match and do it well”.
Northern Italy is covered by snow so 3rd march Parma-Parlermo is not played.
So we step to next week: match in Pescara. We win 1-4. Calaiò scores first (his 100 giola in Serie B) then Ceravolo, Gagliolo and Scavone.
Arciere has special dedication for it: “Dedication for the 100° goal in serie B should be a lot to do. To my family and my sons but today I want to dedicate my thoughts to Davide Astori and his family. We are all disarranged for what happened to Astori. This goal, this victoryI want to dedicate to him. Even if I did not knew him, he is part of us.” On 17th march Parla lost in Chiavari: 2-0 for Virtus Entella. Crusaders have to turn to they mental and physical energies. Once again D’Aversa spurs his guys: “I await for a pride performance against Foggia”. Before going back home, there is a good new from Parma family: young Crusaders are doing it good in Torneo di Viareggio. After pass the round, on 21st march they eliminate Milan on penalties, and goalkeeper Adorni stops two of them,
Guys pass also the next round against Veneia and arrives – against all bets – to semifinals, where they lost against Inter, trophy winner. On 25th march we wait for Foggia in Tardini, Parma have to react and we do it: 3-1. It is not an say match: Foggia is in ten men but scores at the end of the first half; Parma in the end win thanks to Calaiò, Siligardi (first goal with our colors) and Ceravolo. In Avellino Parma looks for confirmations and find them: on 29th march Crusaders win 1-2 with Gagliolo and Barillà goals n first 8 minutes.
