  1. We lost. Don't know if it's a problem with the game but our players weren't training before it and it was two days after the America game. We never stood a chance.
  2. Club World Championship Easily got by América to top our group. A tremendous performance from both our frontmen to send us through. Tough draw in the quarters but it's to be expected at this stage I suppose.
  3. Club World Championship A drab first half saw a rocket lit under the players at half time and they responded brilliantly to thump River in the second forty-five.
  4. Club World Championship Really tough draw for us actually when you compare it to some of the others. Should be managable though.

  6. European Update A thumping for Barcelona in the final as Spurs, under the management of Wolfgang Schneider, bring home their second Champions League trophy, their second in two years. Leverkusen come close to making it the entire way to the Europa League final on penalty victories, but run out of luck in the semi final to eventual winners Liverpool. And it's a clean sweep for English sides as Arsenal defeat Nice easily to win the Europa Conference League. It's a first Ligue 1 title for Rennes who finally win the big one domestically after winning the Champions League a few years ago. Good season for Lens who edge out Marseille to a Europa League spot. Another title for Bayern as they take back their Bundesliga trophy from Dortmund. Benfica win after Porto won two in a row but the surprise is Famalicao pushing Sporting down to fourth. The first time since 2028/29 the top three monopoly has been broken in Portugal.
  7. End of Season 2040/41 Just one loss - only our second of the season and our first in about roughly 25 games - but a disappointing one given the season we had, we should have certainly finished undefeated rather than losing to a side who narrowly avoided relegation. Still, despite our league win, we had our troubles. Through April and May, we dropped more points than ever and struggled to score in some games. Sandro Veloso scored once in three months. We scored more than one goal in only a quarter of those games. These issued need to be ironed out or we will not win the Champions League. Still struggling for progress in the Spanish Cup too, though Madrid away was always going to be difficult. We'd return four days later and defeated them two-zip in the league. The final table. Real Madrid struggled all year but a late burst of good form saw them finish top three. Levante were outstanding too, and made the Champions League. Atletico Madrid were a disappointment. Key Players Oumar Mané once again our best player, and established himself as one of the best in the world too. He made the World Team of the Year too, capping off two excellent seasons for us. Bruno Cesar is probably our best player alongside Mané at this point, in fact it's pretty clear. He had a slow start but he came into his own during the season and finished strongly. Injuries have cost him a couple of months though. Vuk Rudic is a bit of a surprise for me on this list, he was a backup player a couple of years ago but since then he's made a starting spot his. His long throws are the main source of his assists, meaning he's gotten a good haul for a defensive player.
  8. Things Are Heating Up Again We're in prime position here.
  9. European Update It was a very tough tie and we were never really in the game despite Skorupan grabbing a brace to make it 4-3 on aggregate and leaving us needing just one goal to make it through. Tolga's stupid red card never helped, and in the end as we pushed for the winner, Dortmund scored again to put the sword to us. Luis Fabiano was man of the match despite the three goals, which tells you how easy Dortmund had it.
  10. European Update Dreadful performance from us as injuries cause us to be missing a few key players. We were without Bruno Cesar, Patxi Ruiz, Hamza Ljutic, Harry Jansen and Emiliano Cerfoglia. That's our first and second choice AMC out and our first, second and third choice right wingers out! With that said, no excuse for the defensive frailties we showed here. Really disappointing, and the tie in Germany is going to be a very difficult fixture.
  11. End of January 2041 A tremendous update period for us. Started off very shaky though, dropping points at Leganes and Cartagena who are bottom half sides but defeating Vigo who were up in the top six at that time. Our away form was leaving alot to be desired. But coming into December and January, we kicked it up a notch and a comprehensive victory over Barcelona set us well on our way to winning every game over the course of the next two months. A smash and grab 1-0 win over Atletico at their stadium was a great moment too. Defeated two second division sides to advance forwards into a tie with Real Madrid away from home. We are six points clear of Barcelona in second place! Surprise package Levante are up in nosebleed territory in third, then 4th to 6th is a narrow race between Real, Atletico and Valencia. Transfers For the second season in a row, no major incomings or outgoings. Couple of youngsters left on loan but that was about it,
  12. Domestic Update Mid-January brought our participation in the Spanish Super Cup where we'd play Betis in one semi final, and the El Clasico derby was the other. Betis didn't put up much of a fight for us as a Skorupan brace seen us through to face Real Madrid in the final. And we got past them pretty easily too, though we were assisted by them going down to ten men in extra time from injury. Once that happened, we piled on the pressure and two late goals from Zakeer and Veloso saw us retain our Super Cup trophy!
  13. European Update Our form against Rennes was very poor and it saw us finish second and ultimately finished unseeded for the draw for the next round. Disappointing, but Rennes were too strong for us at home to capitalise. Not a bad draw, all things considered.
  14. End of October 2040 Started off strongly with a four-zip win over Gijon, but results have been a touch temperamental since then. Loss to Valencia, draws against Bilbao and Levante and some narrow victories over Zaragoza, Girona and Santander which should've been much more comfortable in truth. However, can't argue with wins really and to only drop points in three games leaves us in a good position so far. Tight at the top early on! Madrid have had a rough start and are already seven points off the pace of Barcelona.
  15. End of Pre-Season 2040/41 Transfers Out A couple of big departures as Zaur Kulikov found his place in the squad at risk following a late signing and left for pastures new in Portugal for a substantial fee. Marc was an attacking midfielder who never really made that spot his own, he was a backup for the most part of my time here and he left for Liverpool for a nice fee. We lost a young Venezuelan centre back for compensation and our fourth choice goalkeeper went to Barcelona to be their backup. Other than that, it was loans for our younger players. Transfers In A freebie signing from Turkey has some good potential. Some weak points, but even if he doesn't manage to overcome them, he can be sold for a profit I'm sure. With Nikola Vidic's loan ending and only one senior left back, we moved to bring in Harry Jansen from AA Gent for £29.5m. A physical beast, Jansen brings cover for both left back and eventually left midfield once he's trained up. Really happy with his signing. With a few days left of the window, our scouts came back raving about this 23 year old plying his trade at Red Star in his homeland. A fee of £4.9m was enough to bring him to us, and in turn spelled the end for Kulikov. Europe A straightforward enough group for us. Would be disappointed with anything less than first.
  16. Yeah, he is very good. Faced him in Italy when we were at Lazio and he was a menace to play against - was delighted when Sevilla signed him! Even more delighted to manage him a few years later Thank you - glad to have you on board!

They pick up another half point, having completed France already in 2033/34.
  18. Around Europe Lyon would go on from defeating us to beating Juventus in the final to take home their first Champions League trophy ever - another first time winner for the AI! And increases the difficulty for us in France when we get there. The Europa League was guaranteed to come to Spain going into the final, and it would end up going to the capital as Atletico brushed Barca aside to win this competition for the first time since 2018. United's second Conference League trophy as they beat Leipzig in the final. PSG with an invincible season and their first title in four seasons. Lyon drop to third following three titles on the bounce. Dortmund win their first title in 6 years by some margin, breaking up Bayern's run of four titles in a row. Porto retain their Portuguese Premier League title ahead of Benfica and Sporting Lisbon.
  19. End of Season 2039/40 A stunning end to our season saw us drop points in just three games and only one loss to Atletico. This included two brilliant wins over Real Madrid in our title run in and away to Barcelona, all of which contributed to us beating the Catalans based on our goal difference I think since we were 1-1 in our head to head record. We had three 5-0 wins in a row,, another 5-0 victory, a 4-0 victory and a 6-0 victory to round up the league win. Superb stuff. Credit to 17 year old Christ Ngoyi who stepped up when we rested players for the Champion's League & proceeded to score a hat-trick to win us the game. What an update period! The final league table is a joy to behold isn't it. 86 is the lowest league winning points total since 2023/24. Key Players Bruno Cesar had a brilliant debut season, returning 16 goals and 16 assists over the course of it. This was enough to win him Spanish League Player of the Year, well earned. Sandro Veloso gave us his best return yet as he entered the prime years of his career. 31 goals is a fantastic number and 14 assists was second only to Bruno Cesar above. 21 goals was joint best in the league, but he did have a tendency to score bundles of goals and then go missing. If he was super consistent, he'd be unplayable. Oumar Mané was our highest rated defender, but it could've been him or Lucas Antonio here. Both were solid, but Mané gets the nod for the fact it was his debut season and he took to the squad like a duck to water. Very pleased with him.
  20. A huge, huge end to the season for us and some luck in other results sees us go top on gameweek 36 and hold onto it for our first title in 94 years!!!
  21. European Update We came away with victory on the night but Lyon's away goal sees them through. We didn't create much tbh and a couple of late chances came from corners - we should've done better. Disappointing as we fall at the same hurdle as we did last season.
  22. We dominated Lyon but we couldn't take any of our chances. Hopefully we can do better in the second leg at home.
  23. After a Real Madrid loss and our own victory over Barcelona, we find ourselves in a bit of a title race! Barca firmly in the driving seat, especially with us having to face Madrid.
  24. European Update Superb effort in the second leg, PSG equalised early on but we didn't let our heads drop and Marc, standing in for the injured Bruno Cesar, restored our lead and gave us a vital away goal. Then substitute Daniel Opoku scored twice and gave us a 3-2 win on the night and a 4-2 win on aggregate. Brilliant stuff. For the third time in the knockout stages of this tournament, we face a French side and it's Lyon again. Revenge on the cards after they humbled us last year.
