At the end of July, I've been offered an interview at one of my former clubs. Definitely interested in going back, so I'm attending

In terms of transfers, Luis Herrera left for Lyon after refusing a new contract, and Reviglio has been sold as he's 36.

We have signed left back Daniel Pinto

and before last season had fully finished and ticked over into the new one, I signed a new keeper. Who is injured. Already

I'm back

Milan.PNG.bebb2ce1dde501c65dae4cf8da402beb.PNG

I'm not sure what I've walked into here, but this is the Milan squad I've inherited, and they won Serie A last season. The last time this much dead wood was on display was the TV footage of the aftermath of the Great Storm of 1987

So many transfers out that they don't all fit on one screenshot

and just one signing. De Man comes in to play centre back, but he's equally capable at left back

A perfect September

105477789_Sep2048.PNG.75b89bd157655446dbf87c198d7dc2b9.PNG

leaving us top of Serie A on goal difference

721631157_Sep2048table.PNG.72ffa37cea544eb017b1d17c84a5832f.PNG

and second in our Champions League group, thanks to Liverpool thrashing Salzburg 8-0

One match from perfect in October, but we were deservedly beaten in Turin

1804797591_Oct2048.PNG.4284370ccfff130e127b869c496c8fc0.PNG

which leaves us top of the table, but only 1 point clear of Lazio, and 2 clear of Juventus

753981818_Oct2048table.PNG.97e967407b88af6c8d6919a496b00c0a.PNG

We're also top of our Champions League group, the decisive trip to Anfield is next. Win that, we pretty much guarantee topping the group. Lose, and we will still have to work to qualify

Perfect in the league in November, but not in Europe

499306903_Nov2048.PNG.b74cbff5faf8cbd4322095c2285e6eab.PNG

We were deservedly spanked by Liverpool, but utterly mugged by Fenerbahce

636664842_Fenh2048.PNG.2da1aa71565169efce0ba5f8d7b752b4.PNG

We've opened up a 4 point lead in Serie A

974490156_Nov2048table.PNG.1a294c261cab9953931d378fa87f12aa.PNG

but we'll need Liverpool to slip up in Turkey, whilst we need to beat Salzburg if we're to win our Champions League group

December was a disaster, results wise

1877845467_Dec2048.PNG.65d2059697eecdc2c2b0434f37337d22.PNG

but we were desperately unlucky against Bologna. They scored with their first shot, and we missed 2 penalties

1598260001_Bolh2048.PNG.6da894a45b2aab2ebe582162f8dd6e06.PNG

We were terrible against Lazio, not even having a shot on target

794804299_Laza2048.PNG.f3e455dd82244e1306cde0dae05ecd8b.PNG

and awful against Sampdoria

337005780_Samph2048.PNG.163eb4e3fc052315882ca8880d5758e5.PNG

We now trail Lazio by 4 points

221747667_Dec2048table.PNG.80ae4952fea6a3fcc9a7b353998e9bd6.PNG

and had to settle for second in our Champions League group

January began with six straight wins, but ended with two defeats

1851461146_Jan2049.PNG.27a74108a6a4896bd0e23cfee53f1ea9.PNG

We secured the Supercup

906621851_Supercopa2049.PNG.2feafa801541f868429659d0723e34f0.PNG

and despite the Cittadella defeat, we're top of the league

Two arrivals, 8 departures since the last transfer update

De Las Heras comes in to boost our options at centre back

2145381572_DeLasHeras.PNG.2954ac6b7f0505977a6cc4bc186de863.PNG

and Milovac is a definite upgrade in goal

A horrible start to February stretched our losing run to 4, but we finished with 3 wins

1438537795_Feb2049.PNG.0588bbcab7d172c260e720c8f787f5dd.PNG

and that leaves us top, but Lazio have a game in hand and can overhaul us

March also began with two defeats, and saw us crash out of Europe

1850296874_Mar2049.PNG.e5343005bfaf4e062a571f091037856a.PNG

and that leaves us 1 point behind Inter, but we've played a game more. Winning the title is going to be difficult, and we need to cut out the sloppy defeats if we're to do it.

but how on earth did we lose to Bologna?

1798399092_Bola2049.PNG.2eebb59562544094e340d46d7da424e7.PNG

We go into May 4 points clear, but all the teams around us have a game in hand. We face a must win game at  home to Lazio next

Not the perfect ending to the season we were hoping for to guarantee the league title

1129386766_May2049.PNG.ee753d9f10a765a64d3de3f75e0f4b90.PNG

and we should have at least drawn with Sampdoria

341145042_Sampa2049.PNG.5153553b502198a221f02261a3d33ce7.PNG

It didn't matter though. We went into the final day needing a favour from Spezia, and we got one

368936276_Champions2049.PNG.4478da8189e4a67c5806b99affee73d2.PNG

Inter's 3-2 defeat at Spezia meant that we finished top of the table and are Champions

Time for another season review

1385012708_Review49.1.PNG.e332a3f01dbfe8abf490a0e99796d263.PNG

Signing of the season went  to Milovac, but could easily have gone to De Man or De las Heras

1142592761_Review49.2.PNG.25babc3729d73bc48a097638d3365d65.PNG

Three defeats in the closing stages of the season nearly cost us the title, but in the end, the fact we only drew one game all season won us the title

1485184448_Review49.3.PNG.1f7e5b9b52ef252267468ba0b25f691c.PNG

We did score plenty of goals

418019623_Review49.4.PNG.95603156938badc563da2dc6f3fb72a3.PNG

Finances aren't fantastic, but we're not in trouble (yet). We need to go deep into the Champions League next season

900051420_Review49.5.PNG.fb64468f8714d0cc361e8e7de5b75d0d.PNG

I agree with the team of the season

979892727_Review49.6.PNG.ee313887b92e6d2e73b1a3acf1232375.PNG

No competition awards, but several club records broken

365530983_Review49.7.PNG.1bdf66550d422d2c9da2509934a9f0ab.PNG

and that's it, another season over.

Four players were released

2045553375_Released2049.PNG.a34f6699398e5eee4d9feeaa3a9b98a0.PNG

Four arrivals, loads of departures, mostly on loan

295575326_TransfersJul2049.PNG.ab8d944eb808987326e0ef8a7b734697.PNG

Roux is our new first choice right winger

Gunkel will be first choice right back

as is Quaye

The one real area in need of improvement now is in central midfield. There isn't any room in the budget for further signings in January, so we'll go with what we've got this season, and hopefully bring in more next summer

The only positive to take out of September is that it was an unbeaten month

1043187926_Sep2049.PNG.ae028e4cac3a4685dc2641b4bcdac7ad.PNG

We were utterly robbed by Atletico, who came for a point and got one

1991737055_AMh2049.PNG.bdd25d5f611253df525402db4d5cafd9.PNG

We couldn't capitalise on an early goal against Monza, and they grabbed a late equaliser

1472987293_Mona2049.PNG.363e1c3d5370a99ef78eaa6df6a45f9b.PNG

We were utterly robbed against Spezia, who grabbed a point from their only shot on target with 3 minutes left of a game we totally dominated

411173282_Spezh2049.PNG.50aa561beefd92666f9095f60799e431.PNG

Finally, Rangers went down the park the bus route, and stole a point as well

496047206_Ranh2049.PNG.496f1c91ae91ec9f46f22cae14d0166b.PNG

leaving us second in Serie A, but Lazio have a game in hand

314428557_Sep2049table.PNG.00f6077566c105c05f15598317fbd055.PNG

and yet to score or win in the Champions League

On paper, nowhere near good enough in October

1775302095_Oct2049.PNG.e63365881402c17b2e4b21eeab713d24.PNG

and whilst we were marginally worse than Lazio, so I can accept that defeat, we were utterly robbed against Perugia

1767329305_Pera2049.PNG.ce5dc9ea47c133c525b2b6bc0ab8f724.PNG

We're 10 points behind Lazio

718454910_Oct2049table.PNG.2c68da682990f7a5006c0613007ecba5.PNG

and in a 3 way fight to progress in the Champions League

Unbeaten, but not perfect, in November

1722140744_Juvea2049.PNG.f51a120acc415d328c883bd6ca400745.PNG

but a draw was fair against Atletico

697005053_ATMa2049.PNG.6ec92a92eab6a1553ed6315f7103280a.PNG

We're third in Serie A, three points off the top, but we have played a game more

1249819916_Nov2049table.PNG.0ab401c592ff7325632f88656b94a6db.PNG

1671996029_Dec2049.PNG.469479a2fb5beb22677d9cd83201b17b.PNG

We deserved a draw against Rangers

277058831_Rana2049.PNG.85940a3f874a2f73651a7802a8637d48.PNG

and should have seen off Salernitana, who scored from their only shot on target

2021725787_Salh2049.PNG.ccadd0855b35c6a1dec45eca62409441.PNG

1944092358_Dec2049table.PNG.4f2861e3d0988493e67ba5feeb28f611.PNG

and we somehow ended up winning our Champions League group, although I'm not sure why. We beat Man City twice, so I understand why we finished above them, but we drew both games with Atletico, scored less goals than them, and had a worse goal difference. I'll take it, but I don't understand it

Not a brilliant February

2052366359_Feb2050.PNG.bf140b7979077d4f0e09fecb533514e8.PNG

The second leg defeat against Parma was deserved but irrelevant. We were woeful against Spezia and deservedly beaten, and we were second best against Lazio too. The frustration with the Lazio game was that we were leading until right at the end

1028053793_Lazioa2050.PNG.08dffb4655cb97625a79389f569dadd1.PNG

and that leaves us 4 points behind Lazio, whereas a win would have left us level at the top. It's going to be tough to win the league from here, and we need to to have any chance of topping the Hall of Fame

A mixed bag of results in April, as we deservedly crashed out of the Champions League to Southampton, and put in a really poor performance against Parma

955225464_Apr2050.PNG.d19860ce983778f68140fbddfd83cd03.PNG

Maybe 'crashed out to Southampton' is a little harsh, given that in this alternative universe it's 2050, and Southampton are the defending champions. They've yet to win the Premier League, having qualified for the Champions League 2 years ago by winning the Europa League, and making it 2 years in a row by winning the Champions League. They are going to qualify for next season's UCL, as they're second in the Premier League

1832865604_May2050.PNG.e6608341956338a893082d38ff6498bf.PNG

but did at least seal the Coppa Italia

22774318_CopaItalia2050.PNG.91dd2a302ad90ac3f8f1ea7900625dd1.PNG

Time to review what, despite a trophy, is a massively disappointing season

2058919561_Review50.1.PNG.51cd0cb5be701160cffec7dbf564044f.PNG

Beginning with new signings

Season results

1347607901_Review50.3.PNG.39c49528f5b678427632dd5bee8ac0bd.PNG

There weren't too many bright spots

1888631383_Review50.4.PNG.f91cefc990c33d20fe6bbe1160a7adc4.PNG

and finances worsened again

307187143_Review50.5.PNG.cb47bbc6f318876bac9a256b85de559f.PNG

This was our team of the season

1263816740_Review50.7.PNG.e7cb4774e1ed23842f214297bb662727.PNG

Three players have been signed, and lots have left, mostly youngsters on loan

974683059_TransfersJul2050.PNG.be97e6de61ee5849aa435c4aa4456201.PNG

Colombo joins me for a second time, having played for me at Tottenham

997403834_WColombo.PNG.e7369e16e457cff25fabc3ce5b18d99c.PNG

Chiarot is a defensive midfielder, but equally comfortable at centre back. If/when I sign another DM, he'll more than likely move into the centre of defence

Chiarot.PNG.6a635b745d9ac0b02d532db735580570.PNG

Botella is a centre back, who was recommended by my AssMan,  but isn't as good as his initial report suggested. He'll be mostly a backup

On paper a terrible start to the season

465084345_Aug2050.PNG.dd3b1b33c4cc633bf90e16f56d33b54b.PNG

but we should have beaten Crystal Palace

709532761_CPh2050.PNG.89a288bd003ee2212ea1d3d48300e7c0.PNG

and Liverpool

87853344_Liva2050.PNG.12a5535a009d19bbe64cad73b820aadc.PNG

Which leaves us 10 points off the lead, and just 1 above the bottom 3. We need to improve, and fast. If I'm sacked, this save will end as I won't have any chance of completing the objective of topping the Hall of Fame
