Team expectations for next year ! (Parma)

Parma didn't do too bad last year finishing in a respectful tenth but could have finished higher. With Giovinco leaving just before the beginning of the season many people thought that Parma would struggle but in fact did the exact opposite and impressed a lot at the beginning of the season and even managed to beat Inter 1-0 in November but in January when the team were practically safe from relegation they let their performances slip and in all honesty if they hadn't done this then I think that they could of finished much higher up the table.

A few big players have departed Parma such as Ishak Belfodil who impressed last year has been sold Inter Milan and a few more players are sparking interest from bigger clubs like Jonothan Biabiany who is being chased by Juventus. Despite this Parma have made some impressive signings none other than Antonio Cassano who in my eyes could take Parma to the next level of challenging for Europa League football. I think that Parma's squad has improved incredibly and they should have no difficulties replicating their mid table finish from last year but I think that next year their main target will be the Europa League however I think it is too soon for Parma and despite challenging I think they will fall just short.

Expected Finish = 6th - 9th
