  1. March 2028 Another three game month follows the disaster that was February. Game one saw us take on Southampton. The game was tight all the way through and easily could have gone either way. They, however, nicked the goal in the 74th minute and our woeful form carried on. In the run up to the Norwich (Nketiah 15, Saka 59) game, we got the bad news that Martinelli was going to spend some time out injured. I need not have worried though as my second-choice wingers supplied both goals and we broke our winless run. I thought we were back to bad news when we went a goal down against Middl
  2. February 2028 Well I said that February was a short month as far as games go and, with results like these, it can only be good thing! The month kicked off against Man Utd (Martinelli 58). They dominated the game but it didn't stop us taking the lead. They equalised and I thought that the points would be shared until they nabbed them all with an injury-time corner. To make matters worse, we lost super-star Gustavo for the next two - three months too! Next up were derby rivals Tottenham. This was an absolute horror-show, easily my worst result of the save. We simply didn't turn up and
  3. January 2028 With the number of games we got through, I'm going to need to write a small novel to cover this month! We started off against Newcastle (Adarabioyo 63) in the cup. They scored early and we really struggled to get into the game - a header from CB Adarbioyo was enough to give us another crack at the tie. We took on Chelsea (Martinelli 49) in the month's first league game. Despite them dominating comfortably, we stole the lead the second half - it didn't last though and they went on to get three points. Salvador also picked up a knock seeing him out for the forseeable. We r
  4. December 2027 The season so far has been an amazing run. It feels like this month has been the first stone in the road but there's still plenty of season to work it all out right. First up were title rivals Man City. They dominated the game and we really didn't get much of a look in. This led to our first defeat this season; it's only December though and we've still got plenty of time to go. Next up, we took on relegation-threatened Bournemouth (Martinelli 32, Tapia 90+5). Twice we were pegged back by the bottom-half side and twice we fought back - the second time in the last minute
  5. November 2027 Three games - three wins - in November - with us at the top of the table - feels like a serious title challenge could, just could be coming on here. It didn't look like it for much of the Sheffield United (Nketiah 90+1, Gustavo 90+2, Musah 90+5). We dominated the game throughout but it looked like we were going to throw it away when we let them slide Brewster through and take the lead. My team had other ideas in mind though and the superb-Gustavo took control, crossing for Nketiah before going on a mazy run and scoring himself! Against Middlesbrough (Tapia 2, Saliba 72)
  6. Ex-Exe too! Look forward to seeing how you get on!
  7. October 2027 If was wondering why on Earth I'd taken this job on at the end of last season, the last couple of months have helped to assure me that there might be some serious reward in having done so! Game on saw us take on Tottenham (Gabriel 69). As well as being derby rivals, Spurs are also at the top end of the table so a win was vital. According to the xG, Spurs dominated the game throughout but a corner scored by stalwart Gabriel was enough to give us the three points. Against Leeds (Tapia 54, 70), Tapia showed his skills and his two second-half goals meant that, even when they
  8. September 2027 Well if I was pretty pleased with what August offered up, I was absolutely stunned by how we followed it up in September. Following the international break, we took on Man Utd (Tapia 5, 47). I was yet to beat a 'big six' club but two corner goals from Tapia combined with a solid clean sheet gave us the win. We followed this up with a game against West Brom (Fekir 5, Kartsev 15) and we took control through a superb free-kick from Fekir and an edge-of-the-box thunderbolt from Kartsev. In the cup, we took on Nottingham Forest (Lammers 15, Saliba 36, OG 62). It was a heavi
  9. August 2027 Well, considering the less-than-straightforward nature of the games we had this month, I'm pretty pleased with the results overall. The season began at the London Stadium and a game against West Ham (Gabriel 7, Tapia 23, Martinelli 67). We started off with a goal from a corner and then our new signings combined - Gustavo sending a cross for Tapia to volley home off the bar. Tapia then turned provider for the third. Against Chelsea (Martinelli 32, Kartsev 55), I was in dreamland when we went two goals clear. However, they managed to pull it back to a draw with two goals la
  10. Pre-season Well it's certainly been a busy summer! I'll start with the outs; our budget changed quickly across the course of the summer. Up above, you'll see a healthy wage budget. That soon became -£181K and we had to ship out players quick. Lots have left on loan but the notable names - Loftus-Cheek and Pepe in particular - were sold in order to free up the wage bill and help me to match my vision objective of keeping the wage bill under control. Out of all the young loanees, Whittle has impressed and I hope that he'll do well and I'll fit him into the team in the future. As f
  11. Season Review The overall XI for the season is pretty close to what I'd expect. The only player from my regular XI to miss out is Partey who took on the Hojbjerg role of clearing up in front of the defence in my games. Our goals conceded rank in 9th compared to 6th for goals scored so it's interesting to see the high rations for Saliba and Adarabioyo. Perhaps it's the full backs that I'll need to have a look at. It's interesting for me to see that Nketiah, despite being the club's top goal-scorer, failed to make it into the overall XI for the season. It's also interesting t
  12. May 2027 Part 2 It wasn't to be. We matched Spurs throughout the game but we just couldn't score to save our lives! Their first goal came from a shot from Lopez which played penalty box pinball and finished up with Bowen smashing it home. This was followed up later on by Bowen countering down our left, crossing for a neat one-two between Kane and Kluivert and the latter smashing the ball into the back of the net. Just to add to the heart break, we put in a big looping ball into the box in the 82nd minute and Nketiah headed home only for VAR to rule it out for offside. On the plu
  13. May 2027 A tricky month with a wide range of results has been what we've had so it's hard to say how we feel about it all. Game one saw us play Sheffield United. We dominated the game before they beat Cucurella for a neat cut back and goal. We were at least eye-to-eye from then on but failed to get what we needed. Next up, we took on Gladbach (Saka 73). We again dominated the first half and failed to score. They hit us on the break to set it up for them to go through but Cucurella made amends and sent Saka through to score. Against Newcastle (Kartsev 48), we again again again dominat
  14. April 2027 Why, why oh why am I here?! There are times when you've just moved club and really wonder why you've bothered! Game one was against Liverpool (Origi 49, Pepe 87). Twice we lead and twice we were pulled back. Considering I was really expecting to get beat, it wouldn't have too bad to get a draw but I was still cross considering how late we took the lead. Next up was our first QF against Athletic (Fekir 24). When we took the lead and dominated the first half, I thought we were really doing well. But they took full control of the second half and came away with a first-leg lea
