The Inter Milan game was not one to write home about, but what we can take out of this game is just as important from what we learned from two straight wins. Fiorentina, while not playing their best, missing several opportunities for goals, was able to take a point from a top 3 table team. As we go into next season, being able to take a point from teams that are better than us will be critical in positioning for Europe. We’ve talked about how important it is for a young team to learn how to win, it is equally important to learn how to not lose.
This team is maturing. We still have gaps, our midfield still has many question marks, but we are starting to figure SOME things. That is a start. That is enough to help us go into next season. With a few choice changes with the squad and a top flight coach hired (Spalletti!), this team is starting to show the promise we have been hoping for.
Erick Ajez, member of Viola Club Indonesia (The infamous AjeStuta)- The match against Inter proved Fiorentina needed a midfield player who really worked. The only one who was seen working was Duncan. And what makes a relief is that Fiorentina have enough good quality goalkeepers to be Dragowski’s coatings. And the positive results Fiorentina have not lost in 6 consecutive matches. The coach’s decision to replace Duncan must be questioned and sometimes Iachini often makes strange decisions.
Andrea Di Salvo - Charming host of Lady Radio - “The serenity of salvation achieved, gave serenity and no pressure to the players of our Fiorentina. In fact, the good performance in Milan against Inter is proof of this, now we think of Roma and it will be another positive performance, I am sure. We look forward to the plans for the new season, starting with the new or confirmed manager.”
Yotam Shavit, President of Viola Club Israel - “It was a pretty boring game since we sat dep in our half and defended for the tie. We really should have scored the chances we had with Chiesa, Kuoame and Cutrone. They all missed excellent counters. On to Roma with points to grab.”
