  1. European Update Opened this season's Champions League campaign with a good comeback against Lille. Was a little worried when we went one down but we rallied well and ended up with all three points Real Madrid visited us next and to say the result was a surprise would be an understatement, a two goal lead was made nervy in the last 20 before Spasojevic popped up at the end to secure the win. PSV came to London next and were swept aside pretty easily. The return fixture in Holland again saw an easier match than expected as a brace from Sima helped us to vi
  2. End of October Solid start to the season but a bit of a shocker of a result at home to West Ham set us back, we then followed that with a couple of unconvincing wins over Norwich and Burnley seperated by another disappointing result at home to Leicester. October brought a tough run of fixtures and we managed to win our home matches against Spurs and Chelsea but we suffered a last gasp loss to Liverpool and we were pretty easily defeated by Man City The Carabao Cup brought us an easy enough tie against Hartlepool but then again - following the theme of this update - we suffe
  3. Pre-Season Transfers In Rovella's loan spell was made permanent as soon as possible. It was a no brainer really as he is pretty clearly our best central midfielder at this point, plus we have Gorka Vera who wants to leave. Valdez is a promising left winger who is also equally capable playing central midfield as well. He's a tidy player but he does lack the pace to be a winger right now I think. I was a bit rocked by Wahid Faghir's demands to move on so moved to bring in a promising youngster from Ajax who I've had my eyes on for years. Altintok will prov

  5. European Update An all-Madrid final here but Atletico couldn't defend their crown and Real Madrid ran out comfortable winners. Must've been the defeat to us that spurred them on as it began a run of English sides they knocked out! For the second time in this save so far, the Europa League is won by Dortmund. They never really looked in trouble in any of their ties either. Hertha with a really good run to the final, though it appears they turn very good in alot of saves? A nice spread of different names in this competition, particularly surprising to see Kilmarnoc
  6. End of Season Really good start to this group of fixtures as we defeated Manchester City on their turf, but a visit to Stamford Bridge proved too much for us as we lost 4-1. Won the next five which included a good win over second placed Liverpool, but United proved too much for us the weekend after. That loss to United would start a poor run where we drew with Wolves and Leeds and lost to West Ham, slipping up and losing positions in the table. Going into the final day versus Forest, we were sixth but everyone from third to us in sixth were equal points - it was crazy standings to be
  7. Definitely, we can be proud of our performance against them I think,
  8. Champions League Knockout First Round - Second Leg A clumsy penalty given away would ultimately cost us as Real Madrid edge us out in the second leg. Faghir's goal came too late for us to do anything with it really. Overall, Madrid nullified our threat well and alot of our players failed to turn up. All of these contributed to us bowing out of the Champions League this season.
  9. Champions League First Knockout Round - First Leg When Musiala gave Madrid the lead, I was a bit worried they were going to take control of the game but Spasojevic replied instantly to put our nerves at ease. Faghir then got on the end of a wonderful ball over the top from Rovella to make it 2-1 and it was tough to take when they equalised eight minutes from time. It's hard to be disappointed with a draw at home to Madrid but we had so many chances to score. We've given ourselves a difficult task going into the second leg in Spain.
  10. Our U18's had interesting opposition in the first round of the U19 CL knockouts... @PaulHartman71how's that for a crossover?
  11. Well then. We signed Brandt for nothing.
  12. End of January A really disappointing loss at home to Leicester was followed up by a brilliant smash and grab at Anfield but after beating Wolves we were humbled by United who reminded us that despite how high flying we are, we still have a long way to go. December was kind to us but our only dropped points rather bizarrely came against sides in the relegation zone as we couldn't find ways past Leeds or Forest. January also brought disappointment as we lost away to Crystal Palace and - as usual - to Everton before following it up with a couple of good wins against West Brom and Arsen
  13. Thank you! A few good results from the group stages, we can be very happy with our performances.
  14. European Update Matchday One Our toughest match first and we never came close to bothering Atletico. Elsewhere, Zenit beat Dortmund 1-0 which opens the group up a little. Matchday Two Our first Champions League night at our stadium and it was an absolutely doozy, we were three goals down and looking a little lost but Spasojevic took control of the game and substitute Ocampo helped seal and incredible comeback. Zenit and Atletico played out a 0-0 draw. Matchday Three Zenit were proving themselves to be a nuisance in the group so I was a little wary o
  15. Yep - very impressive from him too. Leicester were in a bit of turmoil last year and Man Utd have shown so far they are no pushovers. I'd like to think we were between those two! Giving Meyers some time in the youth team first but will be calling him up ASAP. Yeah absolutely, it was excellent experience for us. I find in this version players get a lot more knackered than in previous (my last was 2017) so it definitely helps to have depth.
