  1. THERE IT IS!!! HELIO WITH A DELIGHTFUL CHIP TO SEND OSIPOV FREE ON THE LEFT, HE GETS TO THE BYLINE AND CROSSES FOR SALIFOU-ENINFUL, WHO HEADS IT BACK ACROSS GOAL TO VASCO PEDRO!!! 2-1!!!
  2. That's the half. It's anyone's game. Our leading goalscorer, Salifou-Eninful, is having a 'mare. He has 15 minutes to get his act together.
  3. Another chance wasted...great pass-and-move up the field, Osipov threads the needle to find Salifou-Eninful 8 yards off the back post, fired just wide.
  4. It should be 2-1...Vasco Pedro and Zito with a neat 1-2 on top of the box finds the Argentinian with a clear look at goal from 18 yards, but the Leeds keeper is up to the task.
  5. THAT'S THE STUFF, LADS!!! THE STADIUM IS A CAULDRON OF NOISE, HATE AND AIRBORNE BODILY FLUIDS!
  6. A nightmare start. We launch forward but Leeds counter through Hungarian legend Kalussen...who buries it. Down 1 in the 1st minute. A frozen rope into the side netting.
  7. Champions League Final, 2090; Nuevo Mestalla, Valencia 11 months have built to this point. Heartbreak in the league, heart attacks in the semifinals against Panathinaikos. We face Leeds, the club identified by many historians as the spark of my father's true tactical genius. For a generation, Leeds was known as the home to the most beautiful football on Earth...now, they can't quite lay claim to that mantle, but they're good enough to stand on their own two feet. Even if they usually play a bog-standard 4-4-2, which arguably plays into our hands... Helio will start in place of Luis Henrique who hasn't fully recovered from a concussion. Otherwise, my 1st XI is ready. We'll sit a little deeper to counter the strength of their attack (mindful of Traore, of Panathinaikos fame). It's a rematch of the 2088 final, which Leeds won by virtue of a Crifford De La Haza own goal. After all of the problems they've had in recent years, the broadcasters decided to go without commentary tonight, to just pipe in the noise from the stadium. It's a bold move. Let's see how it pays off. Time for revenge, lads. Let's do this.
  8. It was inevitable. We lose 2-0 away at Oostende, and like the machine they are they've clinched the title. 4 points clear with one match to play. We'll finish 2nd. But we've got a cup final to play next week, in what was once my 2nd home. The Nuevo Mestalla.
  9. Absolutely bonkers...and the side they still had left was immense. No wonder they're undefeated in the Superleague and pushing into the CL knockout rounds.
  10. Don't you know that I would use all of my power to prevent something like that from happening? Royal Antwerp FC May 2090 Mini-Update A warm welcome in Athens that remained throughout the match, the home support singing at every moment. It probably didn't hurt that we spotted them 2 goals in the match...brutal. We've got it all to do back in Antwerp. And we nearly didn't do it. We controlled but the Greeks were dangerous on the counter...so much pace to contend with. In the end, we closed out the match on penalties...8 rounds. Cruel, but we march on to the final to face Leeds, the Yorkshiremen having annihilated West Ham, 7-1 on aggregate. The 2nd XI can finally remove their women's sportswear, having gained a measure of revenge over Zulte, their bogey team, and keeping us just 1 point off the pace as we head into an away match against Oostende, the league-leaders having lost to Anderlecht. 5 matches to play, we can do this.
  11. We've drawn Panathinaikos in the semifinals. Unfortunately, the turnover there has been insane. There will be very few familiar faces when we cross paths in a few weeks' time. Frankly, I don't think any club in Greece has ever seen a year like this. The good news for Panathinaikos is that all that cash allowed them to sign Azcurra, who had previously spurned Gunnar for a move to Benfica. The kid is amazing.
  12. Don't you know that I would use all of my power to prevent something like that from happening? Royal Antwerp FC April 2090 Mini-Update Juventus has been properly steamrolled. We controlled both legs, winning 6-3 on aggregate. Our focus on Europe is costing us domestically, though, as Oostende look good value to take home the title. (Zulte are the bane of my 2nd XI's existence right now...the kangaroo court recently decreed that they must wear Zulte sports bras during training, until they win a match.) But the Croky Cup is ours, and we're through to the Champions League semifinals without breaking much of a sweat.
  13. Ludwig, may he rest in peace, would have considered your caution to be both wise and inspirational.
  14. I hope you intend on paying Ludwig royalties for such blatant theft of his catchphrase.
