This is going to be quick end of season updates as Manager of Manchester United.

Manchester United F.C 2009/10 End of Season update

League Table 2009/10
Well we walked the league being the highest scorers and best defence in the whole division really set the standard for a great season. The Fa Cup we went out in 5th round losing to Arsenal 2-0 but we won the League Cup 4-2 AET against rivals Man City. We also made it to another champions league final after disposing of Barcelona in the semis it felt like 2008 all over again as we would once meet Chelsea.The game started nervously for both teams with not many chances to show as we went on HT 0-0.We took the lead through thta man Dezko on the 58th minute was soon doubled by Anderson in the 76th minute to double our lead and that would be the final score as we become Champions of Europe

Squad 2009/10
I kept the majority of the squad as i felt we needed a big squad and after losing Ronaldo and Tevez i didnt want to lose anymore. Rooney was amazing for me and banged in a hat trick against Barcelona in Champs League Semi Final was the highlight for me. My defence was brilliant with Rio and Vidic performing wonders for me and also Evra. My right back position was different as i couldnt choose between O shea Neville or Rafeal. Midfeild was my strongest area with first choice pairing of Anderson and Hargreaves with Flecther and Carrick back up. Rooney and Dzeko would be my main strike force with Berbatov and Owen as back up.The only down side was Scholes Giggs or Van Der Sar rarely got a look in which is a shame but thats football.

Transfer 2009/10
With some good money available to me i decided to spend big on Igor Akinfeev who was solid as a rock behind Vidic and Rio and Edin Dzeko who would complete my big spending. I also went for a few young superstars in the making with the likes of James Rodriguez, John fleck, Eduardo Salvio and Areola the young goalkeeper. I sold Wes Brown and Park Ji Sung as i didnt think they would be needed any more and Danny Simpson also another moving clubs. I also brought home David Beckham on a free transfer mainly to use as a tutor more than anything.

Key Player 2009/10
Edin Dzeko in his first season scored an astonishing 43 goals in 43 games which blew me away. I heard raving reviews about him so decided i would pay a considerable amount in total of 20mil to bring him to OT and boy didnt he justify that price tag? A brilliant debut season i just hope it doesnt turn out the second season syndrome fataltity but i have faith in this powerful forward.

Tactics 2009/10

With so many confusing options available to me i resorted to my favourite tactic and worked wonders with no confusion to add to my players. It was a tactic i knew worked well especially with the players at my disposal.

Next Season Objectives
To cut the size of my team down and bring up some youngsters like LLajic Macheda and Welbeck. Im considering selling Berbatov and Owen because of this and of course John Fleck also added into the mix. A Right Back will be my main target in the summer maybe Santon if he is available or Rafinha as i dont feel we are strong enough in this department. I am also lookng at Sahko asa possible replacement for Rio but that might be next summer.

Maybe Jack Rodwell as Rio's replacement would be good if Man City have not snatched him away yet

04-12-2009, 16:17
yeah i was looking at him i wa qouted 17mil for him.

in 1st season he's available for around 10million but would say that is a realistic quote for him now as most big teams are interested in him
