Building the finances continuously now, being well under wage budget and getting more money from transfers than we are spending is really helping in this situation. Hopefully the board now decides to expand our stadium, or better would be to see them build us a new one because playing in the top division with only 6,000 seats in our stadium will be disastrous. I am only up as far as Icon, along side Ancos & Benitez, so a stadium could be named Camp Herlein, would be perfect by me. Going to keep trying to get money coming in, and looking at a team clean out at some point as really we don't need to 50 players we currently have and I also have a lot of reserve level players who either need to step up or leave so I can get in some players who are good enough to stay up.
The biggest change from last year was that we started on fire, and we were in the promotion race from the start. We did have a slight drop in form which saw us drop to 6th, but once we went on a 17 game unbeaten streak, 1 loss and then stretching that to 19-9-2 over the last 30 games meant we worked our way back up into the title race and then into the lead, and ended up a comfortable 7pts clear of Hercules who will be joining us in the Liga BBVA. It was helped a lot by Villarreal B managing to lose 6 games in a row, and then us beating Hercules near the end of the season to catch up, at one point in the run in we were third by 6pts, but we turned it around, Getafe were promoted through the playoffs so we will have our local rival in the league as well.
Best Results: vs Tenerife 7:0, vs Hercules 4:1, at Alaves 4:0
Worst Results: at Getafe 0:5, vs Las Palmas 1:2, vs Guadalajara 0:2
The game against Hercules was even more amazing because of my team before the game, missing sooo many players.
My Players of the Season: Def - Phillip Thiel, Mid - Vangelis Arvanitis, Fwd - Erwan Briand
In the second round we drew Alcoron and absolutely hammered them 6:2, this then set-up a meeting with Leganes, another team I thought I should be able to beat, but the boys never showed up and we went down 1:2. Another disappointing season in the cup.
Lukasz Kaminski (POL) - Our Polish superstar, Kaminski has been epic in between the pipes, he played in all 44 games, and kept clean sheets in 19 of them, a little worried by the 43 goals in the other 25 games, but we will work at cutting that down as the keeper and defense get older.
Sergey Afanasjev (RUS) - He was signed in April last year, but wouldn't be joining us until december, from the first moment he was an amazing signing and great at right back as well.
Andre Perego (SUI) - The captain has led the side from the back and done some amazing things throughout the entire season, he will grow with the club and the other players into the BBVA, an awesome central defender being hunted by bigger clubs.
Phillipp Thiel (GER) - He led the backline for a while when Perego was out injured, but generally provided support to the captain and was very solid, needs to mature a bit as we did concede too many goals.
Ugur Dogan (TUR) - The utility player has played in four different slots through the season, he started as right back and then he played in centre defense, midfield and on the right wing too. Looks like some great cover.
Tobias Wagner (GER) - Somehow the German accrued 16 yellow cards in just the one season, he is good when he is on the pitch though so he will likely continue to start.
Ricardo Gomes (ESP) - He came in to replace Lopez on the right wing and was an amazing player, he was in control up and down the right flank, he got a little jaded near the end of the season, but it is to be expected.
Karol Petras (SVK) - He is the solid part of our midfield, his stats will never show anything spectacular, and I was worried that he wasn't doing much, but I watched a whole game with him highlighted and he is all over the park doing clean-up duties and helping the attack and defense.
Ercan Yildrim (TUR) - Another star in the midfield, Yildrim managed to do a lot of assisting on goals and managing to feeding it through to the forwards, solid average ratings, but not amazing.
Vangelis Arvantis (GER) - The young attacking midfielder was never supposed to be starting, but his skill this season has been immense, and he may have surpassed the replacement I have coming in July.
Mario Bumbera (SVK) - One of our Slovakian connection, Bumbera was epic on the left, he was almost dumped, but led us to a victory with a brace and took control of the side once more.
Erwan Briand (BEL) - Our leader upfront, he didn't come out as a star this season, though he did spend time out injured, and he then only had about half the season to get done and he really only managed 18 goals.
Paulinho (BRA) - Is the third player fighting for two attacking slots, but with injuries he managed to get a fair amount of game time this season and this saw him happy overall though he wants to move to a bigger club, I may let him go.
My Youth Prospects
Mihai Cogali (ROU) - The young Romanian is a new signing, but looks solid in the midfield and a great future star.
Roberto Delgado YP3 (ESP) - Our best youth prospect to date, he leaves at the end of the season as he can't get game time.
Rastislav Roznik (SVK) - Another young midfielder with some prospects, stuck behind some star youngsters though.
Ferhat Olzenir (TUR) - Young Left Back who will look to push Wagner around.
Juan Pablo YP7 (ESP) - Our new central defender, a homegrown youth prospect, will replace Delgado as someone we can put our faith in.
Tayfun Sen (TUR) - The back-up left winger, but he has a few issues and is stuck behind Bumbera.

I have also just been hit by the "image" limit that has been introduced on imageshack, so moving to Photobucket, you have over 8000 images, you can only keep 500...oh hurray! - I will aim to move and update links on old updates if I can as well.
For the first time as well in my game we have seen someone not named Ronaldo or Messi winning the Player of the Year awards. Meet Fusca. Finances should be helped somewhat with the new kit sponsorship deal worth 170k instead of 10.7k, huge change of divisions there. Well I suppose one way to help new clubs to the division is to throw them some money, I have been given 20M in TV Rights for the season ahead. And can finally scout the whole world, no word about my stadium though.
