A hard match agains an opponent that had always been problematic for Toro. In October we lost 0:1 at Delle Alpi and our players should do everything in their power to get the revenge! Piacenza is not doing very good in the league, they are currently in 12th place and if we are a mature enough team to get the promotion we should win this one whatever it takes.
the ref Dattilo deleted a regular goal to Piacenza...to Lucenti...
Yes, i've saw the game as usual... Toro was with an emegency team, too many players out injured!!! Balzaretti have played even on the right part of the field( and he's a left back ...!!!!). Pinga was crap, did nothing for the whole game.
It is strange because Toro have dominated the firt half, Marazzina was close to score at least twice,Humberto have tried too,...to many chances wasted.
Piacenza did nothing the whole first half...they just thought to defend!
The second half is started again good for Toro but after 10 minutes all is changed, Piacenza started to attack, Toro couldn't do nothing against Degano...he was superb anf against Masiello.
Piacenza scored with Lucenti ( by a Degano's free kick) but the ref annulled the goal because he saw an inexistnt faul on Berti....
After that,Mezzano have started to make bad fauls ,all the players were with the fear to lose...and in fact at the end Ganci scored...
I think it was the worst Toro of the season ...if this team will come in A, they will never won one game!(that's the comment of my father and grandfather who were mad!)
Ok, that's all for now...
