  1. My Story by Lee Rothery

    As we prepare for our away trip to RKC in what will be the opening league game of the 2033-34 season I think this is a good time to look at the players I brought in ahead of the season. SHAPOVAL (LOAN) - I worry about his first touch & composure slightly but with his creativity & passing he should unlock some defences for us this season: SILVA (LOAN) - A bit of an all rounder really, naturally fit , he is quick and when he does get into dangerous places he can really cross a ball, he may struggle to compete with Kok but he looks more than reliable, MOHL (FREE) - a very brave tough tackler in one of our DM slots, what's not to like? His positioning needs some work but he looks a good addition GONZALEZ (FREE) - I saved the best till last, absolutely should be at a better club but so thankful he signed with us, his talent knows no bounds, ok he could improve physically but when paired with someone more physical I think this player will be worth his weight in gold. Here is how we did in pre-season:

    I knew I needed to focus on midfield and centre back and as a result I have agreed deals with these two players, both will be excellent additions I feel:

    APRIL 2033 It was a superb way to end our season winning 3 of the last 4 games and playing some excellent stuff in the process. This actually means we finish the season in 12th which is a superb achievement! I was a little frugal this season but I think next season we're going to have to increase what we're spending on wages if we want to consolidate this mid-table season and I have faith that we can do just that.

    MARCH 2033 It's been a superb month here, those two wins were so critical to us and have probably ensured safety I feel and to draw with FC Twente was just an added bonus as it was a match in which we were expected to walk away with nothing.

    FEBRUARY 2033 The games against GVVV & Willem were so tight, the pressure was so much that my anxiety was sky high especially in the last 10 mins of both games where one error here or there can make a huge difference. Thankfully though my players restored my faith in them as we won it at the death against Den Haag even despite losing two players through injury early on in the game. The fight carries on...

    JANUARY 2033 Just the two games this month and we were unfortunate against a good Ajax side but after making another tactical change we beat Roda somehow which now gives us a fighting chance going into the games against GVVV & Willem who we play next

    DECEMBER 2032 The month has been so frustrating, we are in most games but we just can't seem to put away chances. Tactically it's been annoying too because at the moment I just can't get my team to score no matter what I try which is a far cry from last season where we were banging them in. In the Europa League despite the superb win we came 3rd based on head to head against Real Madrid so that was disappointing but we didn't disgrace ourselves.

    NOVEMBER 2032 After a good point against Real Madrid we followed this up with back to back league defeats and for the trip to Bratislava I decided to change things up tactically going to an old 352 I used with GVVV and it worked well and even against RKC we were unlucky but there's now do doubt about it we are now embroiled in a relegation fight and if only we can turn these draws into wins. In the Europa League we entertain Vienna next knowing that only a win will do realistically.

    OCTOBER 2032 On results alone this month looks shambolic but it's been far from it, we have been so unlucky in games, for instance at Real Madrid it was fairly even and with 15 mins left against PSV we were leading 1-0 but the rate at which we concede late goals is sky high and it's concerning. I am glad we are still keeping our heads above the relegation parapet but we need to start winning games to get to our goal of mid-table.

    Sorry, this is Chafni
  11. My Story by Lee Rothery

    SEPTEMBER 2032 It's been a good month for us overall as we have really tightened up at the back but despite the lack of league wins I am much more encouraged by the way we have played. I was so down about the loss away in Vienna, we were awesome first half and could have been out of sight but in the second half we just let go and they scored two as we tired. Elsewhere, we have issues up front with Bartos & Dragun both out so I deciced to hunt for a free transfer and I found young Moroccan striker Rachid Chafni, he has settled in well but needs some more games really for me to fully assess him so we will see how that pans out. Next month we go away to REAL MADRID! GULP!

    AUGUST 2032 Even though we needed an injury time winner against Roda we fully deserved it and gives me some encouragement going into September. However, we have some huge news, the Europa League was drawn and look who we have! We play GVVV next and a win is a must as we look to build up morale and next month we will start our European campaign!

    JULY 2032 Already even before we look at anything else I have already learned we're going to struggle this season, we played Twente in the Super Cup and got thrashed although the point against NAC Breda was decent the thrashing really opened my eyes. Anyway, let's look at the players I brought in: 1st choice centre back - free transfer 1st choice DMC - free transfer Back up keeper - on loan 1st choice wingback - what a player- £450k from WKE - potential superstar back up striker on loan: I hope we can gel them asap and get going, it's important we get off to a decent start this season. We also have Europe to deal with and with a small squad it could prove difficult but we'll see.

    Thanks mate, amazing, this never happens so fast, who knows what we can achieve next season!

    WE HAVE DONE THE DOUBLE, WE WIN THE CUP!! It took a great individual effort from BARTOS to clinch it but I also have my keeper to thank as he kept us in the game!
