A New Challenge

 

Goalkeepers

spacer.png

David Luis of course will be our number one. Bilbao is a solid backup and I promoted Chechu from our B team to learn.

 

Defenders

spacer.png

The team was missing a solid left wing back and so I brought in Lamine Tapé from Bayern Munich for 4.3MBrummel and Carluccio were bought as backups. Israel Freitas is promoted from the B Team.

 

Midfielders

spacer.png

Here is where we shine most. Papini is a quick right winger and Curras will be our deep lying playmaker. Marques comes from Benfica on a free. Xynas will play as a striker mostly. Fran is our rising star, a gem in the making.

 

Attackers

spacer.png

Ricard is another young talent. Hope he plays well together with Rodriguez or Xynas.

 

 

Key Player

spacer.png

Our schemer in central midfield. Great Agility (18), First Touch (17), Technique (16) and Flair (16). I had to promise him he will be sold if an offer of 60M comes in (which will hopefully not happen).

Vamos!

 

RESULTS

Pre-Season didnt start well, we even lost to good old Twente. But then the team started to understand my tactics and we beat Levante on the first match day and did not concede a goal in the following two games.

 

LA LIGA

A promising start.

Livin La Vida Loca

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

A friendly at the beginning of the month to boost our morale during the national team break. Then we host Getafe and draw 3-3 in a spectacular game where we failed to hold on to a 3-1 lead unfortunately. The match against big Real Madrid looks tight on first glance but they were all over us for most of the game. A credible draw against Villareal followed and we close the month with a deserved 2-0 victory against Real Sociedad.

 

LA LIGA

spacer.png

Last season Celta Vigo finished 11th. The board wants a top half finish this season and we are well on our way to achieve just that. Barcelona are relentless with Camavinga in midfield and Haaland in attack.

Hard Life

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

Dreadful month. Then again, we had tough opposition. It started nicely when we draw away at Mallorca. We lost against Granada in an even game where a draw would have been more fitting. Then we thrashed small Cadiz 3-0. No chance against Barca at home and it was just the same at Sevilla. We need to keep our heads up.

 

LA LIGA

spacer.png

We fall down to 10th place but this was not a surprise after these results. We quickly have to pick up our form again.

Flawless. We win our 4 games in November convincingly, even the victory at Bilbao was never in danger. And of course Rodriguez havin a blast against Las Palmas!

Would be nice if we finished there at the end.

Falling Down

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

Our form is declining fast. No win this month but at least we were able to progress in the Copa Del Rey against 2nd division Leganés. We will play 3rd division side La Nucia in the 2nd round.

 

LA LIGA

7th would also be ok.

Aim to get 38 points in the second half of the season. 68 points should be enough for Europe.

Beat the cellardwellers like a drum and play .500 against everyone else. (winning the home matches and snatching a few away draws) 

Then you will be fine and happy to be in Spain.

Sounds good (and sounds like the lyrics from a song somehow :) ) Will do.

Feliz Ano Nuevo!

 

RESULTS

A good start into the new year! We win the next 2 rounds of the Copa Del Rey before Real Sociedad knocks us out in the fourth round. In the league, we win 2, draw 1 and lose 1 against Real Madrid.

Keeping Up

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

We are able to carry our good form into February. Ok, the opposition hasnt been that strong if we exclude Real Sociedad but still. The goalless draw was well earned too.

 

LA LIGA

spacer.png

Look at that. This would earn us a CL place. But the season is still long.

Close Race

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

As expected we lose against Barcelona but it was a decent showing from us. An easy win against bottom Cadiz and a well-worked victory vs Granada plus the lucky last-minute draw against strong Sevilla keep us up with the big boys in the table.

 

LA LIGA

Still, it´s only 4 points to a non-european place.

I just love this team! They just go on and on and win their games they are supposed to! Ok, that draw against Osasuna was unexpected but hey - we are talking about a team that finished 11th last season! Good times!

 

LA LIGA

We made it. We will play in Europe next season! And still 2 games to go to maybe achieve more!

Remember I said 68 points would do it. Next Season aim for 76! (that is always my goal and equals 2pts/match) With a little luck you might play Champion's League with that number!

Great Work:applause:

Vigo the Carpathian was the villain from Ghostbusters II.

spacer.png

...of course!! Im slow at thinking sometimes... 

Fun fact: Viggo was played by the german professional boxer Norbert Grupe, whose latter stage name was "Wilhelm von Homburg".

Theres a legendary interview of him in a sports show (when he was still boxing, some time in the 60s) right after he lost a fight. The showmaster keeps asking him questions and he somehow gets angry at some point so that he doesnt answer any more of them :) If looks could kill :D

Season Summary

 

 

spacer.png

spacer.png

spacer.png

spacer.png

This has been a fantastic season for us! Everyone was able to contribute and played a part in our great 4th place finish. Of course Rodriguez stands out with his 29 goals, keeper David Luis with his important saves and newcomer Israel Freitas who had a great debut season, but all in all it was an outstanding TEAM effort. Remember: There is no "I" in the word "Team" :)

Two things:

You are in desperate need of revenue!

Yes, there is No "I" in team, but there is an "M" and an "E"! :brock:

 

KUTGW by the way.

 

You´re right, ME will help this team to succeed - ME good manager :) 

I honestly don´t know how these figures composed... Last season they finished 11th, so it does not really make big sense or maybe the tv revenue etc. for the season just weren´t calculated into it yet... 

In short: Yes :D

Transfers & Our New Team

 

spacer.png

Our long serving skipper Kamara leaves for France after his contract ran out but he was already 34 years old and we need to rejuvenate our team. Our best talent Yeal Niguez joins Girona on loan to get match practice. 

spacer.png

Damn Real Madrid! They turn up on the last day of the transfer window and poach our wonderful left defender Lamine Tape! But this is obviously mostly my fault, because I did not think of increasing his release fee of 12M! Ok, so now our defender talent Freitas will get more playing time than he had ever imagined before the season!

 

spacer.png

A lot of defenders in MaestreJakobowskiLozano and GuerreroManea Cristobal are strikers who will be loaned out immediately.

 

Goalkeepers

spacer.png

David Luis of course. The other 2 will probably feature in the early cup rounds.

 

Defenders

spacer.png

New boys in defence. It will surely take some time to gel together. Most importantly, Israel Freitas has the hard task to succeed Lamine Tape much earlier than we all expected. But I am sure he can do it. Guerrero is an exciting prospect as well.

 

Midfielders

spacer.png

Curras and Papini. The rest is more or less on the same level so it is gonna be interesting to watch who will prevail in the end.

 

Attackers

spacer.png

Rodriguez scored a ton last season. I hope he can do the same this season. Ricard (and Xynas) should play the role of the little helper up front in attack.

 

 

Key Player

 

Rodrigo Curras

spacer.png

Without him, everything is nothing.

A Stuttering Start & Meeting Old Friends

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

Pre-Season went well, if we exclude the embarrassing draw against lowly Choco. I don´t know what happened there to be honest. Then, we are lucky with a penalty in the 90th minute against Atletico and even luckier in Sevilla, when our keeper David Luis was the man of the match, which tells everything about our performance.

 

EUROPA LEAGUE GROUP STAGE DRAW

This must be fate! I just love this draw! Looking forward to meet my former club :)

Euphoria In Europe

 

RESULTS

We make our mark in europe in our first showing in the Europa LeagueDunajska Streda are a welcome victim for us on this evening. A fantastic night for the fans and us. Hopefully we can keep up this form in europe. Leaguewise we win luckily against Levante, lose in Granada, win in Almeria (who are bottom admittedly) and draw at home against Mallorca. We are living the dream and enjoying the moment.

Coming Crashing Down

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

We lose 3 games in La Liga this month with only 1 win. But when you look at the opposition it does not look that bad anymore. In the Europa League, the big game against my former club PEC Zwolle was decided by a goal from Ricard in the last minute. I felt for my ex-team, as they would have deserved at least a draw. 

 

spacer.png

I made that clear in the press conference afterwards.

The 3 defeats see us fall down the table.

The Turnaround

 

RESULTS

This looks more like it! We bounce back with 3 wins and 1 draw in the league. Consistent and convincing performances. And we secure the knockout rounds in the Europa League.

Fingers crossed for Zwolle to win their last game.
