Problems In Poland

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

A lot of narrow wins there. We absolutely fail to beat Poznan though, I thought they were the weakest team in the group... But we beat Ajax!

spacer.png

They ARE the weakest team in the group!

7th and getting better.

Hit ´Em Hard

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

Lots of goals scored there. We lose against Atletico but that was expected. We also lose against Ajax, which leaves us in 2nd place in our group. The rest of the months matches are won, and mostly in a very convincing manner, climaxing in the 6-0 trashing of Granada.

 

spacer.png

We qualify for the next round already.

Blackout

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

Again, lots of goals, even more than last month. BUT we lost heavily against Girona! They shipped us 5 goals and I still don´t know how that could happen. I guess it was a matter of overconfidence and cockyness because of our good run lately. I threw the water bottles around in the dressing room afterwards and the lads seem to have understood. The remaining games went fantastic. A good way to end the year.

 

spacer.png

If it wasnt for that draw in Poland, we´d be up there now.

A nice gap to 7th place.

Cup Delight - League Fright

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

OMG... What a dreadful month if you look only at the league results! 3 defeats in a row let us slip back in the table again. The only good thing is our Cup run. We win all 3 games and reach the 5th round. Against Barcelona.

 

LA LIGA

spacer.png

The gap narrowed down to 2 points.

 

TRANSFER

spacer.png

We sign 23 year old Brazilian right back Pierre from Flamengo for 11M. A very technical player but also very pacey and he has already been capped for the U20 of Brazil. He will go right into the first team.

The Milan Miracle

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

I´m still thrilled. The first leg was painful to watch as we got slaughtered 5-1 by a fantastic Milan side. Super-sub Jose Manuel pulled on back for us but that was it. Our heads were still down when we drew 2-2 against Bilbao afterwards. So I told the lads in the dressing room that we have nothing to lose. Then we suddenly were 2-0 in front after 27 minutes. And then 3-0 after 64 minutes. Milan were doing nothing. Ricard was exhausted so I brought on the scorer of our only goal in the first leg, Jose Manuel. He scored 5 minutes later to give us the result which would see us through. Now, Milan was wide awake and trying to attack but our defence was rock solid. Then, a counter sent Jose Manuel on a one-on-one with their keeper and he made no mistake and the miracle was real. Milan must have had memories of La Coruna! What else happened? Oh we defeated the great Barcelona for the frst time! Again, it was Jose Manuel who scored the winning goal in the dying minutes. Sadly, they knocked us out of the cup 3 days later. We found back to our winning ways in La Liga. In the Europa League we will play Red Bull Leipzig in the second knock-out round.

Bye Bye Europe

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

We are out of Europe once again. Plastic Leipzig outgunned us, it was a clear affair. We won 3 games out of 4 in the league which opens up the gap even more to 7th place. We have to learn a lot still though. Scoring a lot just isnt enough if your defence is too weak.

 

LA LIGA

spacer.png

Europa League place should be secured, we can still fight for a CL place. It´s only 4 points.

Season Summary

 

spacer.png

spacer.png

spacer.png

spacer.png

New midfielder Lastra had a very good debut season. Hopefully there are more to come. January signing Pierre fitted right in, a great acquisition. Despite his age, Raul Lozano was our important skipper in central defense once more. Papini´s ability is declining but he still managed to hit double figures in both goals and assist. My player of the year was Jose Manuel, who did not feature that often, but was always there when it mattered and of course the games against Milan! Rodriguez got the most goals again and our young revelation Niguez also hit double figures - at the age of 18!

Transfers & Our New Team

 

spacer.png

 Chechu goes to Milan! Our academy product on his way to a great career. We wish him all the best! The rest are loans to gain match practice. Huarte was signed by Udinese for a fee of 5.5M but is not displayed here as it happened at the end of the season already.

 

New Signings

Xavier Ruiz

spacer.png

The 21 year old Barcelona academy product joins from Milan for 8.5M. He can play everywhere in defence but still has a lot to learn.

 

Jose Latorre

spacer.png

The Argentinian is a ball winning midfielder who can play alongside Lastra. He joins from River Plate for 10M. His Positioning (16), Anticipation (16), Work Rate (16) and Determination (16) are best suited for this position.

 

Jonatan Marcone

spacer.png

Another player for the future. The 20 year old Argentinian playmaker with fantastic technique (19) and passing (17) joins from Boca Juniors for 8.25M, but will be loaned out to Besiktas this season, as we can only have 3 non-EU players in our team. He will come back even better i am sure.

 

Goalkeepers

spacer.png

Iago Saez is promoted from our U19 team. A great talent. But David Luis remains untouchable of course.

 

Defenders

spacer.png

Xavier Ruiz is the only new signing here. Latorre is shown here as well but he will play in midfield. Huarte has left for Udinese but we have better players in his position.

 

Midfielders

spacer.png

Latorre will aid Lastra in central midfield. Apart from that there will be no big changes here.

 

Attackers

spacer.png

Manea was signed 3 years ago after his contract as a youth player at Barcelona academy ran out. In the meantime he was loaned out to various clubs and made some convincing perfomances. He seems ready for first team football now. 

 

Key Player

Lamine Tapé

spacer.png

A great comeback season for us last year. He will  be vital for us once more.

Tight But Successful

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

Some very tight games there but with mostly happy ending for us. The match against Lazio was a lucky one, as we were under siege most of the time but broke away one time with a counter and that was it.

Looking good in europe.

Suddenly we pick up form and win all our games in march! Don´t try to explain this to me, there is no explanation for this! We even beat Galatasaray twice in the Europa League!

It looks like this season 7th place will guarantee european football, so the league is literally over for us.

Of course this was gonna happen some day and today was that day. He made it clear to me that he wants to leave to club for a bigger club to be able to win trophies.

spacer.png

The only club to come forward with a concrete offer though was PSG. And I refused. He got angry of course but he is way too important for us to let him go now.

Season Summary

 

spacer.png

spacer.png

spacer.png

spacer.png

Niguez superstar! This must have been his breakthrough season. He scored 23 goals in 42 games, most goals were decisive ones. He even topped striker Rodriguez despite playing on the left wing. Roberto Lastra had double figures in goals & assists again. Our keeper David Luis got the best average rating this season, so hats off to him. And he played EVERY game.

Transfers & Our New Team

 

spacer.png

Some big names leaving after this season! Biggest name is of course Lamine Tapé who it turns out is a ****ing mercenary! He leaves for his old club Bayern Munich. Mauricio Maestre leaves for Valencia as he couldnt get past Pierre in our team. Sad to see Jakobowski leave but it was his wish to play for Celtic one day so I let him go. Oh and -not pictured- after 13 years at Celta Vigo, Gustavo Papinis contract ran out and he decided to go back to Argentina to spent his later playing days there at Independiente.

 

New Signings

Zana Sangaré

spacer.png

The 26 year old former Spanish U21 player joins for 2.9M from Nottingham Forest. The central defender can also play as a right back and his work rate (19) and determination (16) help a lot. 

 

Emrah Ertül

spacer.png

The 29 year old central defender has been capped for Germany 4 times. He joins from Bayern Munich for 14.75M. A born leader, his attributes like work rate (16) and decisions (16) reflect that.

 

Roy Hartman

spacer.png

The Dutch right winger should replace  Papini whose contract ran out. The 21 year old already got 2 caps for Holland. His pace (16) and acceleration (20) are his outstanding attributes. We pay 8.5M to Stade Rennais for him.

 

Goalkeepers

spacer.png

David Luis remains untouchable. Lago joins from the U19s.

 

Defenders

spacer.png

Nikacev joins from our B team having proven his ability on past loans. Efren Alonso joins from our U19s and is seen as a long term replacement for Tapé. Emrah Ertul goes right into the first team besides Nikacev in central defence. Oscar Guerrero is back from loan, having now gained Spanish citizenship. Raul Lozano has become a backup because of his fading abilities.

 

Midfielders

spacer.png

Melchor has had 2 convincing seasons at Alaves and our academy product is now ready for first team football.  Lastra in central midfield and new signing Hartman will want to make Papini a distant memory. Fran seems to have come out of favor lately. Can´t see him improving in the future so maybe he will have to leave after this season.

 

Attackers

spacer.png

Cora gets the chance in the first team. The 17 year old got great pace (16) and acceleration (17) and nice first touch (16).

 

Key Player

Yael Niguez

spacer.png

Our past, present and future.

Here you go:

He still got a lot to learn. He´s playing for our U19 currently, but the plan is to loan him out next season.

He's got great finishing and with high technique and flair, you could have the makings of a star. If he can add some quickness, watch out.

He sure does :)  The thing is, we got a lot of talented young strikers (some of which are on loan currently) and with only one striker position in our starting eleven of the first team its gonna be hard for him to end up there against such strong fellow contestants... but we will see what the future has in store for him :)

Strong New Year

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

All in all a strong month from us. It doesnt look like it if you see the last results of the month but those draws were against the strong teams and you can lose to Barcelona at home. Only thing that bothers me is that we are once again out of the Copa Del Rey in an early round. Somehow we are very bad at that. I have no answer why...

Slipped down to 5th but its all a very close affair.
