Not great in September, on paper at least, as we twice went 2 or more goals down and couldn't recover

771711378_Sep2046.PNG.c550e0a88b48eede79cf362a2bc77fce.PNG

but we were the better side against Zaragoza, and even at 2-0 down we were their equal on xG

112447972_Zaraa2046.PNG.b47b9620d2d7a99509737047a4c7b123.PNG

and it was similar against Everton. The common theme of both matches was that I did auto pick team selection, and failed to notice that Danilo Leonardo had been chosen. Everton was his last start for the club, and barring injury, might be his last game in a Barcelona shirt

The Zaragoza defeat means we end September in second in La Liga

152717889_Sep2046table.PNG.f9ef33a84cb942e3f222a1e32a563e5e.PNG

and a sloppy draw against Everton means that the next match in the Champions League, at home to Dortmund, is now a must win game

One win from three La Liga games wasn't good in November

1604515589_Nov2046.PNG.4cd737290c34d2ef0c5dec5fdf7a0157.PNG

and leaves us second, 6 points behind Real Madrid

1825858829_Nov2046table.PNG.7c4a86af926592f22136042909498e5c.PNG

but two Champions League wins means we need a draw in Dortmund in the final match to top the group. Defeat could see us fail to qualify if Everton beat Slavia Prague. I literally have no idea what the permutations are, but the fact we don't already have a Q next to our name means we can miss out

Not a good December

44782412_Dec2046.PNG.7f80740ee80b55ae7f5aa23868602ed2.PNG

but we were unlucky against Dortmund

423035864_Dorta2046.PNG.9231aac20ac32ea5b6effcedcd0760ba.PNG

and somehow let a 2-0 lead slip against 10-man Espanol

1132049224_Espa2046.PNG.c81530524ad5cd7bf53c3522cfb27e50.PNG

We're now 8 points behind Real Madrid

13902884_Dec2046table.PNG.20e6546abd1b9349716303866303c739.PNG

but finished top of our Champions League group, as 3 teams ended up on 11 points

Eight games, eight wins in January

1554932508_Jan2047.PNG.0ea33c30f5c7dc43ec4e9d0f76064972.PNG

which included a trophy in the shape of the Supercopa

1726897103_Supercopa2047.PNG.d7888f3fb9a5a94ca6b97589a8063309.PNG

but that wasn't enough to return us to the top of the league. We remain second, still 5 points behind Real Madrid

One January signing, and three departures since the last transfer update

755048565_TransfersJan2047.PNG.0443cbdfcc5e5b0885f989ce1fede803.PNG

Oscar Ferreira came in to replace Mladen Mrsic, who has been asking for a transfer almost all season

We couldn't follow a perfect January with a perfect February

1034516851_Feb2047.PNG.11db1d1224f67a979fda14a72bffe48a.PNG

but we should have beaten Malaga

1651771849_Mala2047.PNG.586e7af6bb771be05b029a0363ea32be.PNG

and Juventus

246173861_Juvea2047.PNG.355447950fb5a96049e7717475dc5eea.PNG

but we were able to cut Real Madrid's advantage to 4 points. The title isn't over yet

I'm not quite sure how we didn't beat Australia (apart from the fact we didn't actually stick the ball in the net, well not legally, anyway)

554782130_AusvBra2047.PNG.1547b286814ba01d2bdfec967c1beb9a.PNG

But we did win arguably the harder of the two matches, against Mexico

March was perfect, and included overturning a first leg Champions League deficit to beat Juventus

177156165_Mar2047.PNG.0e55bf105547424d4163fa1aba18cf9a.PNG

but we remain second, still 4 points behind Real Madrid, who we face at the Santiago Bernabeu on the final day

So close to an unbeaten April, but we were narrowly beaten in the away leg in the Champions League

184162795_Apr2047.PNG.bc76853a3839dfce14507e5ef5ae7677.PNG

and the unbeaten league run has put us top of the table, but five league games, a Champions League semi final second leg, and, hopefully a final, is going to make for a crazy May

Season review time

2007793182_Review47.1.PNG.2f0ba0b16fb2b84ed27eaadb2f6f2f0f.PNG

Two new arrivals, both have been excellent

1618275008_Review47.2.PNG.6c9f6b0bbcaa685f46e52fe81d81ebb6.PNG

Disappointed to miss out on the La Liga title. Sloppy draws against the likes of Girona have cost us this season

1170613184_Review47.3.PNG.4d4392cc297c5d89f104734161901cda.PNG

There were still plenty of good moments though

681457723_Review47.4.PNG.cb86eb264e7f8409b5c7e78806fcebe3.PNG

and although finances have worsened, they're still very healthy

1107596252_Review47.5.PNG.4b0d648e6fd2d9d3722f4898ffa6f1bc.PNG

Can't argue with the team of the year

2042123181_Review47.6.PNG.5b5549e2a89d781e18688f9778d0f85c.PNG

but weirdly, the World's best goalkeeper isn't even the first choice at Barcelona

555105616_Review47.7.PNG.130ce2a37a605084bdbbb341793c1938.PNG

That's it, another season done. I have applied for a job, but if I don't get it, I'll happily remain at Barcelona

Three players have been signed, although the Timmerman deal was arranged before I signed

846529737_TransfersJul2047.PNG.8d27aa85fb745131b45b178d5e2ec6c0.PNG

He's a decent enough player, but definitely not a signing I'd have made

Timmerman.PNG.5690507548d01d941c5b8e88e31147c0.PNG

Dupuis, on the other hand, is a young centre back who I targeted as soon as I joined Spurs

Dupuis.PNG.1366ff1b5606bcca9a14833350adf9ee.PNG

and Tulio is another centre back, and should be familiar, as he is a big part of my Brazil squad

One match from perfect in October, but we were fortunate to even get a draw at West Ham

551694900_Oct2047.PNG.b611b5c2130eac456172c8f8196541af.PNG

We're up to 5th, 4 points behind new leaders Manchester United

733749289_Oct2047table.PNG.fb4c0197acccfb5c3fc53e006718a1c7.PNG

and top of our Champions League group, ahead of a home match against PSG. We could knock them out and secure our own progress with a win

Not great in the Premier League in November, despite four wins out of six overall

1455853961_Nov2047.PNG.4427e6556baed4b69839ea162b3356f2.PNG

and that sees us stay 5th, but now 7 points off the top

660076933_Nov2047table.PNG.95eed27836a9fa14208bb21a897711a7.PNG

but already guaranteed to win our Champions League group, with a game against Celtic to play.

December was a poor month for results

882026895_Dec2047.PNG.d8d9a8c95466cce126683bc0d6fe332b.PNG

but we were unlucky to lose 3-1 to Bournemouth

408763056_Bourna2047.PNG.3e8697e5b75c74ee31f2241d03dd2da6.PNG

threw away a 2 goal lead against Southampton, also missing a penalty

1516804581_South2047.PNG.72401d1c3261739b9923f4d53d9453f3.PNG

and surrendered a 3-1 lead at Derby

1432309569_Dera2047.PNG.98792ca0fc74641c410c645198f81bb6.PNG

leaving the Premier League looking like this, the title gone, and probably the top 4 too

1354762051_Dec2047table.PNG.e51a02bc024aacee728f0efa7dc0e7ec.PNG

but we comfortably won our Champions League group

Five wins out of eight in January, but only two from four in the league. 

163380470_Jan2048.PNG.a44a676b65b3d9261ebd4f5bf02a6baa.PNG

leaves us five points off a Champions League spot, but we do have a game in hand on all above us.

Five departures, one arrival since the last transfer update

1521580234_TransfersJan2048.PNG.499e750152a7432aa6b5dad39005c2fd.PNG

Steve Lucas, despite the name, is a young French right winger, and comes in to replace Timmerman, who is almost 34 and was starting to decline rapidly. Lucas has 4* potential, according to my Assistant

Not a great February, results-wise at least

1224973768_Feb2048.PNG.68a9e64090f5c51a9d4241c2009a9e2a.PNG

and whilst we were second best in Bilbao, 4-0 was harsh, and we should have beaten Burnley too, another late goal ruining our day

413774748_Burna2048.PNG.f479f45fdf659130d2b2f3951160f578.PNG

but we are somehow in the top 4. We absolutely need to stay there. I almost certainly won't be at Tottenham next season, but if we don't secure top 4, that will probably be their decision rather than mine. I'm not enjoying life in North London, but the save will continue as I want to take Brazil through at least this summer's Copa America

Brazil were back in friendly action in March against Austria and England. Here is my squad. Danilo Leonardo has been withdrawn by Barcelona. He might not get back in if these matches go well

March started very well for Spurs, but ended with two cup exits

1222064147_Mar2048.PNG.974844343556198dc4b813f6e16d1322.PNG

but the Premier League is looking much healthier, as we look like securing Champions League football for next season

One match from perfect in April

1227513740_Apr2048.PNG.e3d0f56c486edb83cfb920205968d09b.PNG

but I'm thinking of calling the police and declaring Carrow Road a crime scene after they stole a point from us

1047500370_Norwa2048.PNG.68f838d259141c94f8f0443d39b9ff49.PNG

which leaves us third in the league, and very nearly assured a Champions League spot. One more win needed. Mathematically we can still win the title, but it would take a monumental bottle job from the top two for us to win it

We end the season with a perfect month. Three wins, and no goals conceded

1614802723_May2048.PNG.39c8827991176bbf1fb4cf4d14f90d64.PNG

and that was enough to overhaul Chelsea and secure a second placed finish.

End of season review time

813455685_Review48.1.PNG.38c261441949229872275e668f8dd862.PNG

Three new signings. Two very impressive, one has work to do but is still young enough to make it

487401311_Review48.2.PNG.4e47e4978bab58ecb1f5ed9856beaa9d.PNG

We had a really solid end to the season, dropping just 4 points between February and May

631502876_Review48.3.PNG.fccd7fdd6b23e58ffe0f6c0146959b39.PNG

Produced some good wins

228610410_Review48.4.PNG.d5f9e302ffdeb1db97c4856c964463e8.PNG

But Champions League failure hit the finances

1084331352_Review48.5.PNG.f286196b45c7b9d4b847ce5828652924.PNG

Our team of the year. Big concern is that our best keeper is 36, so we'll be looking for a new one, amongst other things, over the summer (unless I move on, as I indicated I was going to earlier in the season)

2118990640_Review48.6.PNG.cadd2c2e66e4f22f43637d361b4685b5.PNG

We didn't win any competition awards, but I got Manager of the Month a couple of times, and Aritz Fernandez broke the club goalscoring record

162043160_Review48.7.PNG.3443e961a706bc8daeca141160c60641.PNG

and that's another season done. Time for focus to shift to Brazil and the Copa America
