Season 4 - 2015
Well, what a season...
Another domestic quadruple, only drawing one game in all competitions (our first league game). We're now too strong for our domestic league, the only way that'll change is when we raise the league reputation enough for my rivals to bring in better players.
However, Europe was where the real fun was. After last year's tough qualifying round draw against Rangers, we got better luck this time.
2nd qualifying round - Zeljenicar were defeated 2-0 both home and away, for a comfortable 4-0 aggregate victory. This guaranteed a Europa League spot no matter what happened.
3rd qualifying round - BATE were defeated 4-1 at their place, allowing the 2nd leg to be a 1-0 cruise for a 5-1 win.
4th qualifying round - Dinamo were beaten 2-1 at home, leaving us with a lot to do at their place, however we managed a remarkable 3-1 win, cruising through 5-2 on aggregate.
The group stages drew us against Bayern Munich, PSV and Porto. We picked up a sole point, coming from 2-0 down at PSV, although we were the better side in both that game and a 3-0 home reverse against Bayern. We missed eventually going to the Europa League, but I'll settle for that!
The £6m prize money has made a huge difference to us. We immediately turned professional, however I've not been able to agree an upgrade to our training and youth facilities or expand our scouting range.
The board also announced that the rumours were true and we were indeed going to move to a brand new stadium. 8,250 all seater, costing £3m to build, most of which comes from grants and the sale of the old stadium.
We lost three big players during the season. Afkir went on a Bosman at the end of the league season (and slapbang in the middle of the Champions League campaign). Franzoni
were taken out of my hands by the board, which sets an iffy precedent.
