  1. End of October A nervy start to the season saw us only just beat Crystal Palace and Villa but then followed it up with a shocking loss to Everton, who our rapidly becoming our bogey team in this save. Just cannot find a way by them. Ended August with a frankly brilliant win over City. September was okay, West Brom and Arsenal pushed aside easily before Chelsea got the better of us at our place. Again, October brought two fine wins but the draw at Stoke was a huge disappointment on our part. Overall, a good start but could be better. The Carabao Cup stung us as Sheffield Uni
  2. Good run in your debut Champions League season. Really like your writing style, gives loads of information. Always fascinating to see how well former players have done!
  3. Pre-Season - Transfers Lots of loans here, let Stevens and Gilbert leave for fees as I wasn't renewing their contracts at the end of this coming season. Valgeir Valgeirsson was a big sale for us, signed for £475k we made a huge profit on him. I signed him thinking he was this amazingly talented player, but I based this all on Championship football. He wasn't good enough for the Prem, and after two good loan spells with Hull, we capitalised on his value to offload him. However, the huge news of the summer happened early doors and therefore wasn't captured on the transfer page...
  4. Yeah he was quite surprising, but you could definitely tell in some matches his finishing wasn't amazing. It's kinda disappointing he's shown so little improvement on that front, though if he keeps scoring, I won't complain As for Meyers, I'm the same. One of those players you just know you'll try and sign everywhere you go if possible.

  6. European Update Sickener here as Atletico Madrid, still under the management of Simeone, pick up their first Champions League trophy and rule themselves out of contention as a job for Max! An all English Europa League final was surprisingly won by mid-table side Leicester. Rafa Benitez proves he's still a terrific manager as he brings home Leicester's first European trophy. Pretty much as you'd expect it to be in France with PSG coming very close to an invincible season. Same in Germany. Gladbach should probably have done slightly better. Atlet
  7. End of Season February was a great month for us as we saw off United at home before expected victories against Burnley and Blackburn. But while February was great, March was downright terrible summed up by an inexplicable 6-0 loss against Everton (losing against Everton was a recurring nightmare this season). Everton's striker Sinsterra only got the five goals during the match... We bounced back from a poor month in some style though with four games, four wins and four clean sheets and 14 goals scored. A poor loss to Palace, a satisfying win against Norwich and a wild draw against Vi
  8. He's probably one of the best young players I've seen, certainly on this FM. Gave him his debut in a rubber match against Villa and he scored
  9. Europa League Quarter Final - Second Leg It was a more respectable performance in the second leg and a goal from Spasojevic - who has hit some red hot form in the second half of the season - gave us a sniff of a chance in the second half but ultimately it wasn't enough.
  10. Europa League Quarter Final - First Leg Defensively, we were shocking as we were carved open effortlessly in the first half. We've done okay to come away with two away goals but we've a huge task ahead of us in the second leg.
  11. Just received our youth intake and received a potentially best of his generation player... Those mental stats are incredible for 16 years old! He's going to be a star.
  12. Europa League Second Knockout Round - Second Leg This was always going to be a tough game for us, but given we were coming off the back of a 6-0 loss to Everton (!), things were looking rough, The team practically backed off Villar inviting him to run from deep and score in the first half. Thought for sure that was it, we had more efforts in the second 45 but nothing was coming until a scrappy clearance from Roma fell to Mbuemo who crossed for Faghir to give us an amazing equaliser and a passage to the next round on away goals. Scenes! We faced Man Utd next..
  13. Europa League Second Knockout Round - First Leg Bit of a disappointing result as we can't break down Roma's wall in between the sticks with any of our 12 shots on target. A stormer for the Roma keeper, but happy not to concede an away goal as well.
  14. Europa League First Knockout Round - Second Leg PSV don't spring any surprises in the second leg as we come away with a solid win. Job well done from our young team. We face Roma next!
  15. Europa League First Knockout Round - First Leg I expected a more difficult challenge from PSV but we dismantled them easily enough. Nice to see Sima scored twice on his full return from 4 months out with a broken foot. No Faghir or Hudson-Odoi available for either leg though, possibly beyond.
  16. A demoliton! I didn't think we had anything to fear following their shocking season last year and I was right. He does look good, doesn't he? No idea what mercenary means in terms of personality though.
  17. End of January Our form has dipped a fair bit as we've picked up alot more draws rather than wins (five on the bounce seems mad) and lost three games including a bit of a shocker at Leeds. Our draws also came against some of the sides at the lower end of the league which is even more frustrating. We lost Sima for four months and Faghir and Hudson-Odoi for a month each all at the same time, as well as some more minor injuries for players meaning we were struggling to fill out an 18 at points without calling on youngsters. The Carabao Cup saw us defeat City before a penalties
  18. I think everyone has missed his poor form.. with that said, he was out for four weeks with injury but that's no reason to call for his exclusion!
  19. Wahid Faghir is reaping rewards from his terrific form this season! Really starting to show some serious signs of reaching his potential But you can't please everyone clearly...
  20. Bees on Tour I decided to use the Europa League as an opportunity to blood in some younger players and rest some of our more important players. It was risky but I was prepared to take the chance to impress in the league over Europe. Matchday 1 A terrific second half performance saw us past the Belarusian side. Matchday 2 A disappointing result in truth but Gladbach are a good side. Matchday 3 The first real test of our European adventure and a pretty straightforward one too, rather unexpectedly. Matchday 4 A European double was
  21. The score more than the opposition tactic never fails..
  22. End of October A superb start to the season saw us score 13 goals and take maximum points in August, including a 3-2 win over Arsenal. Then we travelled across London for a class with Spurs and again, we came away with all three points and things were looking terrific for us. A draw and loss to both Manchester clubs brought us back down to Earth but we composed ourselves to thrash newly promoted Blackburn to end September. Into October, we easily beat Burnley but dropped points to Everton before a massive 2-1, last minute win over current champions Liverpool. We are looking good!
  23. Pre-Season - Transfers The squad we have is pretty good at the moment, I'm happy with where we are. Tariq Lamptey wanted to leave but all bids we received were below expectations so he stays until January at least. With that said, I thought we could do with a solid backup for him and at centre back, especially with the selling for Taylor Moore. Finally, I thought we could use an extra man up top. Kalajdzic leaves on a free, it never really worked out for him here. Taylor Moore also leaves, a solid backup option. Loans for Valgeirsson, Simons and van den Berg will hopefully give
  24. Looking forward to having a go! I actually think we have a pretty good team at this stage.
