  1. Our line-up: (4-2-3-1) Davies Williams, Mawson, Bikey, White O'Kane, Hourihane(c) Hammill, Baxter, Harriot Bradshaw Brief Match Report- Pretty dull game but a fantastic debut from Liverpool loanee Jordan Williams, who got MOTM. He's exactly what we wanted a versatile defender that can play RB and CB. Man of the Match- Jordan Williams Our line-up: (4-2-3-1) Davies Williams, Mawson, Bikey, White O'Kane, Hourihane(c) Hammill, Baxter, Harriot Bradshaw Brief Match Report- Pretty solid performance without threatening too much going forward, clear difference in individual quality with Palace scoring early in each half. Man of the Match- Yannick Bolasie Our line-up: (4-2-3-1) Davies Williams, Mawson, Bikey, White O'Kane, Hourihane(c) Hammill, Baxter, Harriot Bradshaw Brief Match Report- After being on the back foot for the early stages of the game we scored against the run of play when Callum Harriott's whipped cross hit Ben Turner and ended up in the back of the net to make it 1-0. We dominated throughout after the opening goal but didn't make it safe until the 83rd minute when Harriott played through Tom Bradshaw who chipped the Burton Albion keeper to ensure we got all three points. Really important win against a side that came up with us, undefeated in five league games. Also a really exciting performance from Callum Harriott, signed him on loan from League One Charlton early on in the window and with Rolando Aarons injured he looks a brilliant replacement...caused Burton havoc! Man of the Match- Callum Harriott
  2. New Signing- Completed the signing of another Bournemouth central midfielder, this time it's Shaun MacDonald for £195k. Great deal for the club. He's signed a three year deal and will go straight into the squad for the Aston Villa game. Our line-up: (4-2-3-1) Davies Evans, Mawson, Bikey, White O'Kane, Hourihane(c) Aarons, Baxter, Hammill Bradshaw Brief Match Report- Jose Baxter scored his first goal of the season from the penalty spot to give us the lead after 19 minutes, after Micah Richards tripped Baxter inside the area. A much deserved lead going into half time, dominating the first half with 62% of possession. After Bikey hit the bar with a bullet header his central defensive partner Alfie Mawson was in the right position to tap home from a couple of yards out. We played defensively in the remaining minutes to ensure we kept a 2 goal lead and we did so brilliantly although Gabby Agbonlahor did miss a great chance from close range. Magnificent performance, 20 shots compared to their 10, outplayed them in every area. Also great to have MacDonald on the bench, built a strong midfield now. A player that can play right back and centre half would be good now. Also, Evans played once again as Buxton picked up another injury..back in 3 weeks time. Man of the Match- Andre Bikey-Amougou Our line-up: (4-2-3-1) Davies Evans, Mawson, Bikey, White O'Kane, Hourihane(c) Aarons, Baxter, Hammill Bradshaw Brief Match Report- Was great to be able to field the same side despite playing Villa just 3 days before and their was a clear confidence to our play in the early stages of the game. Summer signing Jose Baxter opened the scoring for us for the second time in 3 days with a tidy finish from close range. Mawson had to be taken off due to a slight ankle knock and was replaced by Lewin Nyatanga which really unsettled the defence and Brentford scored just five minutes after he was replaced, with Hofmann heading in from close range. Adam Hammill got the winner in the 83rd minute after rounding the 'keeper the hitting the back of the net! Great to get 2 league wins back-to-back and build some momentum. Man of the Match- Daniel Bentley
  3. Our line-up: (4-2-3-1) Davies Evans, Mawson, Bikey, White O'Kane, Hourihane(c) Aarons, Baxter, Hammill Winnall Brief Match Report- Rolando Aarons gave us the lead in the 9th minute after a great ball in from full-back Aiden White before Stevie May equalised 30 seconds later to make it 1-1 inside 10 minutes. Joe Garner made it 2-1 to Preston on the hour mark which turned out to be fully deserved as they dominated the second half. Pretty poor performance but showed some positive signs going forward. 19 Y/O Evans made his professional debut at right-back due to Buxton being ruled out for for a few weeks but will be back for the next league game. Main striker Tom Bradshaw will also be fit for the second game. Ideally I would still like 2 more players. Man of the Match- Greg Cunningham Our line-up: (4-2-3-1) Davies Evans, Mawson, Bikey, Cech Razak, Hourihane(c) Aarons, Rivic, Kent Bradshaw Brief Match Report- On his debut, Abdul Razak got sent-off for two bookable offences after just 15 minutes, horror start. Despite that, Tom Bradshaw was passed fit for the game so I thought I'd give him an hour to get some minutes under his belt and he gave us the lead after 27 minutes. A goal either side of half time gave Mansfield a 2-1 lead before another debutant George Moncur came on and made it 2-2 with a neat finish from 10 yards. Mansfield's Adam Chapman gave them the lead for the second time in the match after his cross ended up in the back of the net. Captain, Conor Hourihane, drew us level after 67 minutes with a spectacular volley from 25 yards. Substitute Sam Winnall came on and scored the winner in the 76th minute to the delight of the home supporters. A great result considering the red card, big win and a needed confidence booster. Great to see Bradshaw come back to the squad and score a goal, will be vital to our survival chances. Man of the Match- Conor Hourihane Second round draw- Barnsley will play Crystal Palace in the second round of the Capital One Cup, with the game to be played at Oakwell.
  4. Been a big fan of Bikey in the last 2/3 fm's should be a decent signing. Baxter and Aarons will be key if we're to stay in the League and Buxton is 2*'s better than Bree.
  5. Cheers man, was a hard one but hard to attract better players to come to Barnsley.
  6. Screen grab of the transfers, trying to move on 3/4 players out on loan. Signed quite a few players which was desperately needed although still in need of one or two starting XI players. Great prospect, James Bree moved to Watford after forcing a move, feel like we got a good fee though and got 85% of the fee to go into our transfer budget. O'Kane and Baxter should be key signings.
  7. After a new update came out for the game I've decided to start a new save, I always like to be a low Championship side and thought Barnsley were a great option. Should be a very difficult first season or two, with the aim of survival. Like the information says below, we have four rivals in the same league as us which should mean some exciting encounters.. just hope we don't get embarrassed by Sheffield Wednesday who have a great squad. Desperately need to bring in some new players and strengthen the backroom staff. Aims for the season- Avoid relegation, expect to be in a tough battle due to such a poor squad but I think survival first season is achievable depending on who we can bring in on a tight budget. Give young players a chance in the first team.
  8. Championship- Line-up: ------------Fielding---------- Little--Moore--Flint©--Bryan -------Reed---Smith------ Nazarenko--Shinnie-Dyer -----------Kodjia--------- Match Report- Korey Smith gave us the lead in the 16th minute to capitalize on an error from Ipswich 'keeper Dean Gerken, the keeper spilled Lloyd Dyer's cross. Daryl Murphy equalised for Ipswich in the 26th minute after he crashed his volley into the top corner. Jonathan Kodjia scored a penalty in the 32nd minute to give us the lead once again. Daryl Murphy equalised for Ipswich once again in the 34th minute with a well time finish from close range before Kodjia ended an outrageous first half of football by giving us a 3-2 lead in the 41st minute. Harrison Reed almost got his first goal for us just three minutes in the second half but his shot hit the woodwork.. The amazing start continues.. Man of the match- Jonathan Kodjia The guy now has eight goals in nine league games. BUT the injury misery continues and it gets even worse, it's Kodjia who's injured. He's out for ten days.
  9. Screen grab from the day of the Ipswich away game.... as you can see the injury list isn't great and hope it doesn't affect our great run of form.
  10. Sorry for the ridiculously long wait for an update, had loads of word to do. Championship- Lineup: ------------Hamer---------- Moore-Flint©-Baker-Bryan -------Reed---Smith------ Nazarenko--Reid----Freeman ------------Kodjia--------- Match Report- An enthralling match finished 3-3 between what looked like two even sides. A mistake from our centre half Aden Flint let Nick Blackburn through on goal and he delivered, tucking the ball past Ben Hamer. Experienced winger Sergiy Nazarenko equalised in the 36th minute with a well timed close finish. An mistimed attempted interception from Reading right-back Chris Gunter let Kodjia through on goal and he fired home to make it six league goals in his first eight games. Reading full back Andrew Taylor then scored a tap in after a goal mouth scramble in the 66th minute. Reading forward Nick Blackman made it 3-2 to the royals and it looked like they were going to get all three points until a 93rd minute equalizer from Sergiy Nazarenko, TERRIFIC ENDING. Bit of bad news after the match though as Nathan Baker was ruled out for three weeks and the on fire Bobby Reid ruled out for four. Man of the match- Sergiy Nazarenko Magnificent performance from the Ukrainian as he bagged two goals and got an assist. Some excellent news as our magnificent youngster Bobby Reid has signed a new three year deal. Capital one cup third round- Line-up: ------------Fielding---------- Little-Ayling--Williams-Bryan -------Pack---Smith©------ Nazarenko--Freeman-Dyer -------------Agard--------- Match Report- After his stunning performance in the last match I thought I had to play Nazarenko again, and despite his age I thought he could handle two games in the space of a few days...and the selection appeared to work early on as he ran half the length of the pitch before dribbling past an MK Dons defender and then put in a pin-point cross for Kieran Agard, Agard delivered and headed home. Sergio Aguza equalized for the Dons in the 59th minute can sub Jonathan Kodjia gave us the lead once again in the final ten minutes to take us into the fourth round. Man of the match- Darren Potter
  11. Cheers pal, will try to do another update tonight.
  12. Championship- Line-up: ------------Hamer---------- Moore-Flint©-Baker-Bryan -------Reed---Smith------ Wagstaff--Reid----Freeman ------------Kodjia--------- Match Report- Another fantastic win, not a great performance but once again very clinical. Bobby Reid got both assists for Kodjia's goals which he finished well, both of them one on ones with the Birmingham 'keeper. Substitute Lloyd Dyer finished off the game with a back post header with just over 10 minutes remaining. Man of the match- Bobby Reid Championship- Line-up: ------------Hamer---------- Moore-Flint©-Baker-Bryan -------Reed---Smith------ Wagstaff--Reid----Freeman ------------Kodjia--------- Match Report- Probably played better than the last game funnily enough, but couldn't get the all important goal. Smith and Reed dominating midfield, fantastic from those two. Man of the match- Korey Smith
  13. An unbeaten start to the season, with four wins and a draw in the league, and with two cup wins. The league table- Here's a few individual players stats from the opening month of the season.
  14. League Cup Second Round- Line-Ups: ------------Hamer---------- Moore-Flint©-Williams-Bryan -------Pack---Smith------ Wagstaff--Reid----Dyer ------------Kodjia---------- Match Report- We played extremely well and took complete control of the match inside the opening 35 minutes, with Wagstaff and the in form Bobby Reid scoring. Kodjia also kept up his goal scoring form and finished the game off in the 70th minute. Man of the match- Bobby Reid Championship- Line-Ups: ------------Hamer---------- Moore-Flint©-Baker-Bryan -------Reed---Pack------ Wagstaff--Freeman----Dyer ------------Kodjia---------- Match Report- Had to make a couple of changes due to the players condition and it worked a treat. Despite probably being our best player of the season so far Bobby Reid had to be rested and so did Korey Smith, but Freeman and Reed made great impacts. Harrison Reed added great energy to the midfield. Despite Burnley having most of the chances in the game we got the all important goal in the 41st minute through Jonathan Kodjia, which means he's now scored four goals in six games, in all competitions. Brilliant win with the defence very solid. Man of the match- George Boyd The Burnley attacking midfielder was a constant threat all game but couldn't get the goal for the Clarets.
  15. Championship- Line-Ups: ------------Hamer---------- Moore-Flint©-Baker-Bryan -------Pack---Smith------ Nazarenko--Reid----Dyer ------------Kodjia---------- Match Report- With Luke Freeman out Lloyd Dyer came in to replace him in the starting XI and he had the first chance of the game, but he pulled his shot wide. An error from Nathan Baker allowed Leeds midfielder Alex Mowatt the chance to score from close range and he took full advantage, smashing the ball past Ben Hamer. Leeds continued to be on top and things went from bad to worse when Nathan Baker was sent off for two bookable offences, this left us with an extremely small chance of getting anything with 25 minutes left. But with just four minutes left Bobby Reid rescued an unlikely point with another outrageous goal, this time a free kick from 31 yards out. Another impressive result. Man of the match- Bobby Reid In a game where we needed a moment of magic he produced something special. After the game we were fined for failing to control our players as we picked up six yellow cards in the game. Championship- Line-Ups: ------------Hamer---------- Moore-Flint©-Baker-Bryan -------Pack---Smith------ Nazarenko--Reid----Dyer ------------Kodjia---------- Match Report- Experienced winger Lloyd Dyer gave us the lead with a tidy finish after 11 minutes from just inside the area. Goal poacher David Nugent equalized for Boro just after the hour mark after some great play from the Boro midfield but shortly after their left-back George Friend was soon sent for an early bath. Our winner came through Lloyd Dyer once again as he raced past Boro midfielder Adam Forshaw before firing the ball past the Boro 'keeper. Our strong start continues. Man of the match- Lloyd Dyer A fantastic peformance by the winger.
