Just finished my first season in charge of Atalanta - finished 9th behind Roma on goal difference. Made it to the SF's of the Coppa Italia losing to Lazio and got to the Quarters of the Europa League - beat Ajax 7-4 on aggregate in the knockout round, but went out to Lyon on away goals after drawing 3-3 across the two games.
I spent more than half the season inside the European places, but a disastrous 2018 saw me sink like a stone. I only won 4 games after New Year, with 2 of them coming in the final 4 games of the season. I didn't lose many, but I drew a lot, I ended up finishing with 15 draws in the league. Best results were doing the double over Milan and going unbeaten against Juventus and I only got pumped twice, 4-0 at Napoli and 5-1 at Roma, both early in the season.
I didn't spend a penny on transfers, only bringing in 4 players across the season - Georges-Kevin Nkoudou on a loan from Tottenham, Olivier Ntcham on loan from Celtic, Nicolas Dominguez on a free from Velez and Stefano Sensi on loan from Sassuolo. Only major outgoing was Remo Freuler in January for £18m to Monaco. The summer is going to be murder as I have three of those going back to their parent clubs, as well as Pierluigi Gollini my backup 'keeper, Mattia Caldara who was my best CB and Captain, Leonardo Spinazzola my first choice LB, Bryan Cristante who is probably my best CM and Riccardo Orsolini, who was a bit of a bit part player, but did chip in with about 8/9 goals and assists.
At the season's end I have a transfer budget of about £12m, but I'm way over on the wage budget, so I'll likely be looking at some loans again and scouting for some good players out of contract. There's a few players I can probably shift on for a decent amount of money, so might be able to pay a fee for a couple of good players as well.
The most pleasing thing to happen all season though, was probably Juventus losing out on the title to Inter on the final day by 2 points...when they'd missed a 94th minute penalty against us with 3 games to go, which would have won them the game.
