    AC London - I Predict A Riot

    Thanks. We've started this season very well, gone up another level it seems hopefully we can continue the form. A few more players have been linked with moves away, our GK is wanted by Arsenal and a host of clubs made bids for another youth player but I rejected them all.

    Club Improvements Off the back of the sale of Lake and that of another couple of young players; Ortner to Leeds for 200k and Hobbs to Huddersfield for 250k that means we are in a good financial situation for the first time. We've spent no money on new players once again with seven free transfers of which just one is a first team player and three more loan signings. With this financial clout behind us I took advantage and got the board to reluctantly upgrade the youth recruitment but no luck with upgrading the junior coaching. I have also taken the opportunity to upgrade the back room staff at the youth levels. Some are upgrades with a few brought in purposefully to improve the scouting knowledge. The most change came in the U18s. The four joining staff members Dimarco (former Italian international), Bartlett (South African who starts at Newcastle), Jaaskelainen (son of the Finnish legend Jussi) and Regan Poole (of Man Utd youth fame) aren't all the greatest but possess potential to improve with all being varying national level qualifications. I will shortly be asking the board to increase the amount of coaches allowed to further increase the quality.

    Carlos looks a very good signing for your team. The best player you have now?

    Germany Vs Mexico 1600 BST BBC1

    Poorest I've seen Germany play in years. Mexico deservedly won, strange decisions taking Vela and Lozano off but justified in the end. Germany have to change it up in the 2nd game, Ozil and Draxler out and Brandt and Reus in for me.

    First Big Sale Off the back of George Lake signing a new contract I have now sold him to future Premier League side Derby County for £2m plus 50% of any future sale. A number of other clubs like Burnley, Middlesbrough, Brentford and West Ham had all made similar bids. This deal will see us have stable finances for a season or two and/or make some potential facility upgrades.

    AC London - I Predict A Riot

    League One - 2033/34 League After last seasons 8th placed finish which I saw as an over-achievement, I told the squad I wanted mid-table and they agreed. We opened the season with a disappointing loss to Cambridge but soon got the first win under our belts against Carlisle. Form was patchy into September but a decent unbeaten run of 7 games before a loss to Walsall saw us clamber up the table. A very good win against promotion contenders Millwall highlighted how well we were playing. November saw three wins on the bounce but form dipped with no win until Boxing Day when we sought revenge in beating Cambridge. New Year celebrations continued with wins over Lincoln and Bolton. In the new year form became very inconsistent, January was OK but no wins in six through February and March really hampered a decent season. However we picked up a couple of wins whilst teams around us lost to pull us back into play-off contention. Two big wins saw us with a real chance of achieving that last play-off place going into the last game of the season, we sat in 7th, one point behind Gillingham. We faced Exeter whilst the Gills faced Grimsby. Romone Storrie took it upon himself and we found ourselves 2-0 up at half-time whilst Gillingham were 3-1 down at home. The 2nd half was horrendous, Exeter pulled it back to 2-2 before nearly taking the lead. In the 87th minute Adam O'Brien finished a well worked move to seal the win and 6th place. In the play-offs we faced Hull and as soon as I saw that, I knew we wouldn't be getting to the final. On loan Romone Storrie was ineligible to play against his parent club and there went 35 league goals not even to the subs bench. In the first leg at home we need to stop Hull from scoring to stand any chance, we got to half-time with the game goalless but the stronger side Hull came away with a 2-0 win by the end of the game. We needed a miracle in the second leg, we scored twice but so did they, the game finished 2-2. 4-2 the aggregate score. An unbelievable season in all seriousness to get a play-off place and to have an improvement on the season before. Cups We reached the second round of the Carabao Cup again before being knocked out to Colchester in extra time. In the Checkatrade we were drawn against Ebbsfleet, Leyton Orient and Cystal Palace, beating the former two, losing to Palace. In the 2nd Round we were well and truly thumped 5-1 by Exeter. In the only cup I care about, we were drawn against Winterton Rangers in the 1st Round, dispatching them comfortably 6-2. Rochdale awaited us in the 2nd Round and away from home we came out 3-1 winners in a professional performance. In the 3rd Round we were drawn at home against Premiership big boys from the blue side of Manchester. We took it to them but came out eventual losers in a 7-4 scoreline. I was so pleased to have scored four goals against a team with such calibre. Squad Only fours players joined the club, three on free's in pre-season and one on loan in January. Gonnella signed in the summer was sold in the winter by the chairman, the other two Ortner and Hall went into the U23s. Four other players were sold through the season, the other O'Brien to Coventry (87k), Chaikamdee to Mansfield (10k), Cooper-Mason to QPR (100k) and Sheridan to Watford for 95k. In total those transfers netting us just under half a million. We could be due another £250k from those in the future. Undoubtedly the star of the season was Romone Storrie on loan from Hull. His fourth spell with us saw the striker score 35 league goals plus another seven in the cups. Those goals seeing him top the leagues scoring charts, clear of second by 6 goals. Four players achieved double figures for assists but no big stand-outs. Two players in Adam O'Brien and Matt Allanson played started every game this season with 57 being played. Club and Finances Again due to the poor finances there were no chances to improve the facilities but those initial improvements have now seen decent back to back youth intakes. We did start the season in the black but soon fell into the red but player sales kept us from falling further into the negative. We've been given just under £400k to spend next season and an increase in the weekly wages available to us at £31.5k p/w. However our kit and stadiums sponsors both run out in a few game days so hopefully the board can striker a couple of decent improved deals. Next Season In the end of season meeting, I told the team I wanted a top half finish, which was received with great admiration. Same again this season will be perfect as we still don't have the squad to compete in the most competitive league in the world. The chance to improve the youth players we have will be better served in this division for the a couple more seasons.

    Tea also and Salted Caramel Fudge here
  8. For me it would have to be Barcelona B with La Masia or Viseu and the chance to bring Brazilians into the club. Good Luck with whichever team you choose.

    What a miss!!!!!!!
  10. Pogba is *****, so overhyped. France's next sub should be Thauvin on.
  11. Clash of heads in training I think I read.
  12. Giroud should have started, such an underrated player.

    2034 Youth Intake Another Golden Generation for us but in the words of the late Ray Wilkins "My Word" A closer look sees an OK intake but Tony Wright's CA already matches his PA with potential of another star worth. Haynes isn't that great but worth tagging and my other tag will be Francomb the GK. Here is Tony Wright in all his glory. Just wow, already on par with my current first team LB Jack O'Donnell. I just hope, HOPE I can tie him down to an incredible contract when he turns 17 and doesn't think he is bigger than the club like Barry Sheridan did.

    Great first name. Same as my favourite overpriced French fashion retailer. Been fascinating reading through this thread and the advancements of all the small teams of French football.
