After falling from the heights of the first division all the way to rock bottom, the objective in Season 19 was clear for manager RedAL: climb back up again. Phase one of that goal was completed in Season 19, as he led Torino to a 3rd place finish and subsequent promotion to the second division. "I'm proud of what we have achieved, but this is only a step in the right direction," said RedAL. "We have a long way still to go to get back to where we were."

Led by a standout defense (allowing just 0.50 GAA, best of any division this season) and the emergence of new arrival Ciro Immobile, Torino allowed only 4 goals and lost just one game in the second half of the season to make the final push up the standings. Every midfielder on the team earned a Man of the Match award, and team MVP Daniele Padelli kept 12 clean sheets in the league, tops in all TSL divisions.

While earning promotion was undoubtedly the primary goal this season, Torino also had a Gold Cup campaign to worry about. The Italians finished on top of a difficult Group D, but their dreams of lifting the trophy were cut short in the Round of 16, where after forcing a replay, they bowed out to eventual runners-up Tigres.

"For Season 20, we expect to be in the top half of the table for sure," said manager RedAL. "I don't think it's realistic to expect promotion again, but we are capable of doing that, yes." A full season with Immobile and a defense that shows no sign of weakness should be a worry for the rest of TSL B next season. Whether or not that translates into promotion, only time will tell. "For now, I'm leaving for Greece to attend to my national team duties."
