  4. (Confession: I played this and screencapped everything. Then my laptop spazzed and I lost the game. I holidayed the game and I only got a 3-1 win, but I had the caps from the first game so have used those)
  5. 2023/24 UEFA Europa League Final 22 May 2024 1945hrs, Vodafone Arena, Istanbul RKC Waalwijk 4-1 FC Schalke 04 A blustery wet evening in Istanbul seemed a strange venue for revenge, but there we are. The team lineup looked like so: We were back after last year's disappointment vs Manchester City. After making it through the Group Stage, we faced Borussia Mönchengladbach in the First Knockout Round and a 2-1 win at home, coupled with a fantastic 3-1 win away saw us through 5-2 on aggregate and into the Second Knockout Round against Stade Rennais FC. A Kylian Langlois penalty just after HT put us ahead in France, but we were pegged back mid way through the half to leave them on level terms at 1-1. However, an Antonio Doria hat-trick in the 4-1 home leg win saw us sail into the Quarter Final 5-2 on aggregate again. FC Internazionale were to be our Quarter Final opponents and I thought our European adventure had come to an end to be honest. And in the first leg away in Milan, we went 0-2 down midway through the first half, which left me fearing the worst. However, two goals in three minutes from Filip Juric & Antonio Doria tied it up late in the first half and saw us escape Italy with the 2-2 draw and two away goals! The home leg was a tight affair. Antonio Doria scoring just before HT and, despite Inter scoring very late on to ruffle our feathers, we basically smash and grabbed our way into the Semi Final on away goals after a 3-3 aggregate draw. The Semi Final saw us matched up with Italian opposition again, ACF Fiorentina. It was also the home of our erstwhile midfielder Sami Boucetta. I was hoping to make it an unhappy reunion for him. And a 3-1 win at home, followed with an intelligent 1-1 draw away in Florence saw us through to the Final, 4-2 on aggregate. The Final was to be against German opposition in the shape of FC Schalke 04, and we had a perfect start as Filip Juric fired home from the edge of the box on 10 minutes to put us up 1-0. However, the lead lasted 9 minutes as the Schalke 04 striker's fizzed shot flicked off the leg of Rekik, taking it beyond the desparing Holder's dive. 1-1. We restored the lead barely two minutes later. Juric was fouled on the edge of the area and Antonio Doria slammed the resulting free kick into the top corner over the wall. 2-1. On 33 minutes, a corner was swung in and, after chaos in the Schalke box, Karim Rekik stepped up to thunder the ball in from close range to put us 3-1 up and into dreamland. There was even time in the second half for Markus Bay to put the cap on it with a fierce low shot from the edge of the box to make it 4-1 and give the boys the biggest win of their careers as when 90 minutes was up, we were EUROPA LEAGUE CHAMPIONS.
  6. The dream. What's hilarious is that Bilal Houari's goals were his FIRST in the league. Despite being at the club for 7 years.... GOAT, baby
  7. 2023/24 KNVB Beker Final 28 April 2024 1800hrs, Mandemakers Stadion, Waalwijk RKC Waalwijk 2-0 AFC Ajax Amsterdam A dreary wet late afternoon in Waalwijk heralded the end of the KNVB Beker competition. The team lineup looked like so: Having seen off SBV Excelsior, Almere City & MVV Maastricht earlier in the competition, we were then matched up with FC Utrecht in the Quarter Final where we sailed into a 3-0 lead, before conceding two in the last 15 minutes and making it a little uncomfortable until we ran out 3-2 winners. Our Semi Final was to be against Helmond Sport. We had a lot of history with them in this competition during my reign. We'd beaten them in the Final for our first ever silverware, but we'd also lost to them two seasons later to end our unbeaten streak in the competition on THEIR way to the Cup. So this was gonna be a battle for the ages and we were not disappointed. Helmond scored a 25 yard free kick on 15 minutes to put them 1-0 up and we were awful for most of the game. Just when my frustration was reaching it's height, Filip Juric picked up the ball and hit a unbelievable strike into the corner. 1-1. It stayed that way until the very end of First Half Extra Time, as Helmond passed their way through my defence and fired home to give them a 2-1 lead. Fuming, I threw everyone forward and on 117 minutes, a raking ball from the back found a rampaging Doria down the left-hand channel. He took it under control and curled in a dangerous cross which was converted emphatically by that man Filip Juric. 2-2 and that was the end of extra-time. Penalties beckoned and after a great Holder save, Sherel Floranus fired home the winning penalty to take us into the Final, where we would meet AFC Ajax Amsterdam, in a replay from two years ago. The game started off with a bang. A booking for Ajax in the first minute meant that we had a good attack to start with and Bay's inch perfect through ball found Filip Juric, who lashed it high into the net to make it 1-0 with only 2 minutes gone!! The game was a shock from the start and the dismissal of the Ajax playmaker for a two-footed lunge on Juric on 35 minutes only made things easier. That being said, we still couldn't break them down and they posed a threat on the counter. It took us until 86 minutes, when Juric escaped the shackles of the opposition right back and ghosted into space. His inside ball to De Boer saw room to feed Candela on the right. He took a few steps and cut back a ball to Filip Juric, who had arrived late in the box. He fired the ball high into the net and we'd sealed the game 2-0.
  8. Game over, man. Game over..
  9. I quite fancy Denmark as a place to manage. Don't think it's a strong enough lure to stop me managing RKC on 18 though
  10. Yeah, it's the best one so far (as 16 was compared to 15) Loving the difficulty. I'd won a few Eredivisie's at this point last year.
  11. I always pour as much as possible into my youth and try to make a profit off the mid-range ones, whilst blooding the best. Tactically, I usually go in with an idea and adapt it to the team.
  12. Best of luck, man. Will be waiting for your next adventure.
  13. I run with a stopper centering two CD's
  14. Nay bad! Nay bad at all!
