  8. SEASON 4 REVIEW Sorry bout the lack of updates as work overtaking a lot just now. Ok so finally finished Season 2016/2017 and once again Celtic are SPFL Champions winning the league by a clear 21 points over Hibs & Killie. Ross county were 4th with 52 points followed behind in 5th The Mighty New Gers on 49 points. We bit better run in the Champions League with us managing to make it thru to the knockout stages before bowing out to Juve 5-3 on Agg. Once again in the qualifying rounds we met Cliftonville for the second season running, also managed to dispatch dundalk. Couple of good results in the CL against Dortmund & Atheltico Madrid showed we are beggining to get used to the Champions League finally. TRANSFERS: As you can see finally succmend to Will Hughes leaving the club with a £8 Million plus add on's deal to Manchester Utd. Also moved on Broony & James Forrest as they were no longer 1st team starters, The Tom Rogic deal was done due to not being able to re-sign him on a new contract due to visa probs. Jordan Larsson Update: Tough season for jordan only managing 20 games with 3 goals after a injury ravaged season for the son of the king of kings.(Current Season Update: Well it looks like jordan's celtic adventure is over after we recieved a bid of £3 Million plus add ons for the youngster from FC Kobenhavn. Shame as he was doing well but a massive profit for a player i picked up for free.) DOMESTIC NEWS Ok season for us domesticaly with the SPFL win. Rotation system is workng well and Tony Watt & Paul McMullan leading the way in the team scoresheets, Lots of upcoming players making there marks thanks to the rotation system and the future is looking good. In the SPFL Rangers have once again underperformed and have not beaten me at all this season, Highlight of the season was a 5-0 drubbing which saw Tony Watt hitting 3.... St.Mirren were the team relegated with Motherwell winning the battle of Lanarkshire in the Playoff final against Hamilton.. Once again Hearts have failed to make it back into the spl and have been looking pretty mediocre in the Championship.. MANAGERIAL CHANGES Jens Lehmann was finally let go as manager of Inverness Caley Thistle after a horrid start to the season, His Replacment was Carlise Utd and former Dundee Utd & Partick Thistle Manager Jackie McNamara
  9. looks awesome tom, take your time. your skin's are worth the wait mate
  10. SEASON THREE UPDATE Finally i finish season 3, bit easier this season winning it by 18 points ahead of Inverness Caley Thistle, so quite happy with that, also picked up the Scottish Cup as well but once again it was a disappointing Champions League Season finishing 4th again in my group though losing out in the last game to galatasaray for the Europa League spot. On a plus this season has seen some big strides in bringing thru some great young stars, Marcus Fraser & Paul McMullan both havng an amazing First Season in the First Team. But more on them & more later TRANSFERS iN: Eamonn Hutchinson - £250,000 - Livingston - Young 16 year old Central Defender who has already broken into the first team and has been outstanding scoring 8 goals in 16 games, If this is what he's like in his first season, cant wait to see whats he;s gonna be like this season.. Will Hughes - £4.8 Million - Derby County - Think we all know about Will & his skill's. Was on the top of my wanted list from the first season and glad i got him before anyone else snapped him up, great first season playing in the AMC role originally owned by Knockaert who moved to the right hand side. Joe Dudgeon - £1 Million - Hull City - Must admit didn't know much about this lad until my scout flagged him up, had been looking for a strong Left Back to Rotate with Enda Stevens and what a find, looked strong when needed and his crosses caused a lot of teams problems. Aaron Juhl - Free - Reading - 20 year old MC/DMC i picked up from reading. has been mainly been used as sub MC and has been looking a good wee player Kenneth Omeruo - Season Long Loan - Chelsea - Back for a 2nd season to paradise after i was quoted £10 Million for him from Chelski, Another amazing season and he's gonna be missed next season unless Jose brings his price down a tad. Nikos Giannakopoulos - Season Long Loan - Udinese - Goalkeeper brought in as back up for Forser that lasted till Jan before i got fed up hearing his manager moan i never played him, So he went back and one of my upcoming regen GK was back and looking good. Andy Clark - £180,000 - Livingston - Another steak from livi, Young upcoming striker who has been tearing up my reserves with 35 goals in 41 games. picked up couple of games in the first team as sub but no goals yet. Adam Lallana - Season Long Loan - Southampton - Has fallen out of favor at Southampton and seemed to struggle in the SPFL as well as he also was shipped back to his club at the end of Jan. Gary Hooper - £2.4 Million - Norwich City - And Hoops is back in the only Color's he should be wearing along with his familiar number 88 shirt. Took a few games to get back into his stride since he was not getting any First Team Action at Norwich due to Jordan Rhodes tearing up the goals there, plus an injury just before he joined seem to knock him off his stride, but it was not long before he was back to banging them in again. Total Spending: £8.5 Million TRANSFERS OUT: John Heron - Free - Had signed for Peterborough Utd but since been released again Liam Henderson - Free - Now Playing at Blackburn Rovers Paul Gazzangia - £125,000 - West Ham Utd - Never really settled in and took what i could get for him. Anthony Stokes - 325,000 - Wolves - Didn't want to get rid of stokesy but he wanted first team football & i couldn't guarantee him that. Teemu Pukki - £5.2 Million - West Brom - Gutted at this one, went in to renew his contract and was told not interested and next day i got a message saying he felt he wanted to play at a higher level so he was sold to West Brom with a good few clauses added in of course. Darnell Fisher - Free - Now playing at Gillingham Stuart Fisher - Free - Now playing at Doncaster Rovers Jack Kirwan - Free - Was playng at barnet and had scored a good few goals for them but since freed Mikey Miller - Free - Now playing at Motherwell Conor McManus - Free - Now playing at Dundee Paddy McNally - Free - Now playing at Preston North End Stephen McManus - £14,000 - Sheffield Wednesday - Felt time was up again for big mick and he was picked up quite quickly Thomas Reilly - £210,000 - Brighton - Another player had high hopes for that didn't seem to come through, Seems to have settled in well at brighton and last i checked Sheffield Utd were bidding for him. Denny Johnstone - Free - Now playing at Preston North End....Totally gutted at this one as i am a big fan of the lad in real life as i am a major under 19s/Devolpmental fan and try get to as many games as possible. Just seemed to not click in my team at all but seems to be doing well at Preston as classed as a key player Cody Cooper - Free - now playing at Shrewsbury Town David Bentley - Free - Blackburn Rovers - was not really getting a game on the right with Knockaert, Johnston & Forrest dominating that area, so let him leave on a free. Robbie Keane - Retired Total Income: £5.5 Million Jordan Larsson Update: So the king of kings Jnr returned after his loan spell at falkirk and has had a great season, Spilt my squad into two by rotating them each game and he has linked up with Paul McMullan creating a very exciting he is after this season: DOMESTIC NEWS: "The" Rangers return to the SPFL was not everything the media predicted as they struggled the whole season ending up in 5th well off the pace, they beat me once in the 5 games we played this season, with me knocking them out of the Scottish cup 5-2 at ibrox. But for me this was by far my fav game: Always count on a Larsson to break "The" Rangers hearts Crashed out of the League Cup to Killie in the 5th round on penalties and the Trophy was eventually won by Hibs beating Aberdeen 2-1 The Scottish Cup Final was a repeat of the season before with both myself and Dundee Utd meeting up again, this time i came through 2-0 with goals from Tony Watt & Mikael Lustig Dundee were relegated to the Championship with St.Mirren returning to the SPFL after winning the Championship. Once again Hamilton were left heartbroken after being beaten in the Playoff Final by Hibs... Managerial Changes Derek Adams became the new Aberdeen Manager after Derek McInnes left to take over Sheffield Wednesday Chris Powell left Inverness Caley Thistle to take over the reigns at QPR and was replaced at Caley Thistle by Former Notts County Manager Jens Lehmann Dougie Freedman left Motherwell to take over my feeder club Ipswich and was replaced by a local lad in Gary McAllister On a nice wee side note a certain Neil Lennon Took over Huddersfield Town in the English Championship and finished 2nd and promoted to the EPL in his first season Way to go Lenny lol going to post my upcoming young players in the next few post or two as some are looking well good.
  11. SEASON TWO UPDATE So just finished season two and what a tough season it was Aberdeen challenged me all the way through the season even leading by 6 points at one time, Again got a tough Champion's league group which saw me get Arsenal, Valencia and Ajax again, once again failed to qualify from the group and narrowly missed out the europa league spot on goal difference. Board of Directors also decided that the club should link up with Manchester Utd, Hoping to end the link soon!! My Player of the Season Teemu Pukki - Outstanding season that saw him score 31 goals in 42 matches. He was also the fans player of the season. Transfers In Nick Powell - Loan In - Manchester Utd - Young Mid Centre/AMC brought in to help strengthen up my central midfield Anthony Knockaert - £5.5 Million - Leicester City - AMC/M/AMR/ST brought in to be more a AMC to play just behind the stikers, had an amazing season scoring 5 goals, 1 of which was in goals of season Chris Wood - £4.2 Million - Leicester City - 23 year old striker that had hit 18 goals the season before, looked a good prospect but failed to settle and score in 6 months at parkhead before demanding a move away. Shame had high hopes for him to. Jordan Willis - £500,000 - Coventry City - 20 year old DRC/DR another prospect who looks good for the future, spend most of the season on the bench but when comes on seems to play well. Paul Gazzaniga - £200,000 - Southampton - a 23 year old GK brought in as backup for Fraser Forster, Looked good the games he has played in. Stephen McManus - Free - At one point in the season my defence was leaking goals and then was hit by injuries to mulgrew and Fraser so brought Big Mick back to the club, Played really well considering he's 32. Robbie Keane - £29,5k - LA Galaxy - even though he's 35 strikers were miss firing at one point so thought robbie would maybe help coming off the bench, has scored a few goals. Shaun Kerr - £250,000 - Motherwell - 17 and a real prospect for the future, He's a DR/DC and allready a mainstain in my reserves/U-19's Kenneth Omeruo - Loan in - Chelsea - 21 year old DC/R looks awesome, reminds me of big vic and has made an instant impact in my side, hoping to get him back in for a 2nd season and even see if can get a permanent deal for him at some point Elliot Hewitt - £25k - Ipswich - another good prospect for the youth team and reserves, Hopng he does well for us in the future. Total Spending: £10.86 Million Transfers Out Lewis Toshney - Free Transfer - Now playing with Carlisle Utd Jordan Hart - Free Transfer - Now playing with Greenock Morton Luke Donnelly - Free Transfer - Now playing with Ross County Jackson Irvine - £725,000 - Wolves - got a good offer so had to take it. Leo Fasan - £12K - St.Mirren Mohamed Bangura - £825,000 - Al-Itthad (KSA) - From the moment he came back all he did was moan, even when i gave him plenty first team action was never happy so he had to go. Nir Biton - £4.5 Million - Ajax - Great offer for a player the club had payed £725,000 for the season before, add in the add-ons and could get least £6 Million for him Joe Chalmers - £40,000 - Preston NE - Was 3rd choice behind Enda Stevens & Izzy, so gave him a chance to play else where Amido Balde - £4 Million - Espanyol - The big man had hit 6 goals the season before that and when Espanyol offered £4 Million with clauses felt was a good deal Bahrudin Atajic - £135,000 - Al-Fateh Efe Ambrose - £3 Million - FC Twente - was refused a visa for his new contract twice and with it due to run out the next season took the money option when i could Virgil Van Dijk - £5 Million - Inter Milan - again tidy profit for a player bought for less, also add-ons in deal so could make more out of it. Emilo Izaguire - £1.5 Million - FC Lorient - Izzy had been making moves to goto a bigger club for a while so last day of the transfer window accepted this offer from Lorient Chris Wood - £4 Million - Hannover - Finally accepted defeat and let him move elsewhere, didn't see the point of keeping him here any longer upset and mis-shooting, so he also left last day of Transfer window Callum McGregor - Free Transfer - Now Playing at Stevenage Dylan McGeouch - Free Transfer - Now Playing at Inverness Caley Thistle Patrick Twardzik - Free Transfer - Has Since Quit Football Total Incoming: £22.41 Million Jordan Larsson Update Spent the season on load at Falkirk in the Scottish championship, Did quite well playing 22 Games, Scoring 6 & 5 Assists to his name Domestic Update In the championship the zombies managed to win the league by one point over hearts, Hearts then lost out on the playoff spot to Hamilton who were beaten by 11th placed St.Johnstone. St.Mirren were the team to be relegated to the Championship. Met The Rangers in the cup twice this season, Knocking them out of the League cup in the 3rd Round 4-1 at Ibrox, and in the 5th Round of the Scottish cup 3-0 at Paradise. Failed to win any of the domestic cups this season being knocked out of the league cup by my bogey team Aberdeen on penalties after a 1-1 draw and beaten in the final of the Scottish cup by Dundee Utd also on penalties after a 3-3 draw. Managerial Changes Terry Butcher left Hibs to go become manager of Stoke, Peter Houston was promoted up to manager Inverness Caley Thistle sacked Roy Keane and brought in Chris Powell as there new manager Stuart McCall was fired by Motherwell and brought in Dougie Freedman Derek Adams left Ross County to become manager of Brighton and was replaced by Bury Manager John Collins Tommy Wright left St.Johnstone by Mutual Consent and was replaced by Former Inverness manager Roy Keane Danny Lennon was sacked for his bad run of 20 games without a win and was replaced by Stevenage manager Graham Westley
  12. Am gonna start changing my coaches this season as rather have my own choices, Forgot to add that i had signed Jelle Vossen in the jan transfer window also, god how could i forget that lol sign him every year i get fm lol
  13. again great work sean....ok here we go lol In my 2nd season so here's the first season Update first.. First Season Update!!! Ok the first bit of business i did was bring in a new Reserve Assistant Manager and to me there was only one guy i could go for and that was the King Of Kings himself... and if am going to get Henrik then i gotta try and get Jordan also, and i did, add to that i got him on a free and was well happy(I have the Swedish leagues unlocked hence how i was able to get them both.. Transfer's In Jordan Larsson - Free - Hogaborg: as above looks a good wee prospect for the future, Ripped up the reserve league's with his goal scoring. Cody Cropper - £165,000 - Southampton: Young upcoming GK who i think could challenge Forster in a season or two. David Bentley - Free: Know he's had a bad history of injuries but thought he would be a perfect player to keep young Forrest on his toes and boy did he, outstanding first season where he was hardly injured at all. Chris Johnston - £600,000 - Killmarnock: Touted as the next Jimmy Johnstone just had to bring him to paradise, he's young and a AMR/AMLC/ST and for only £600,000 a bargain in my view Thomas Reilly - £500,000 - St.Mirren: Again another young attacking midfield/Striker, Bought him then loaned him straight back to St.Mirren, looks good and hoping he does the job for us. Enda Stevens - Aston Villa - The 23 year old Irish man and former St.Pats & Shamrock Rovers Left Back came in as a Loan Deal with a £1.1 Million Future Fee Clause. Never took the clause up though as Villa where interested in signing Kris Commons so i managed to do a Straight Swap deal for him in Jan after an amazing first half of the season where he kept usual 1st choice Izzy out of the team for most of it. Well worth a look. Transfer's Out Lukasz Zaluska - £250,000 - Kalmur FF: Happy to see Lukasz go as felt he had been at celtic for just to long and so no future for him here at all. Beram Kayal - £875,000 - Torino: Again felt Beram's best season were possibly behind him and for the formation i play he was behind Broony & Super Joe so felt better if i got the cash for him. Kris Commons - P/EX - Aston Villa: See above.. Basically Spent £1.27 Million and recuperated £1.12 Million which for a first season was good. Season Review Season went really well apart from the fact of when i qualified for the Champion's League Group Stage's was dealt with a Killer group of which was myself, Real Madrid, Schalke & Ajax. Pretty bad campaign in that which saw me only win once with a last minute 2-1 win over schalke thanks to Balde. Lost forster for the home game against Ajax where cody cropper came in and had a good game even though we lost 2-0, Some good progress though when it saw us lose 1-0 to Real Madrid at the bernabeu thanks to a 32 Min Bale goal. We hit the woodwork 3 times and sammy had a goal disallowed also. Domestically We romped home in the league with 32 points ahead of Ross County and well ahead of 3rd placed St.Mirren. In the cups we won both beating Motherwell 3-1 in the League Cup Final & coming back from two down to beat Relegated Hearts 3-2 As seen above Hearts Went down to The Scottish Championship where they will meet The zombies, should be an interesting Championship this season considering both Hamilton and Falkirk all already looking strong this season. Hibs managed to beat Hamilton 4-0 in the Playoffs and keep there own safety in the SPFL, would of been interesting had both Edinburgh sides been relegated to the Championship. Manager Changes Jackie McNamara Lost his Position with Dundee Utd after a very poor season which saw them finish just above hibs, His Replacement was Former Hearts Manager George Burley Pat Fenlon was fired from hibs which saw his Position been taken over by Inverness Caley Thistle Manager Terry Butcher, His old job was taken on by none other than Roy Keane who within a day of taking on the job ripped me a new one in the press lol
