  1. December As we move into 2017, we're absolutely flying domestically. We have a league cup semi final against Ross County to look forward to next month, while we also have a Europa League tie against Rubin in a few weeks to plan for, too. I'm not anticipating making any new additions during the January window, but I may bring a couple of players back from their loan spells, and I will try and take advantage of the interest in Will Keane to generate a bit of money for the club.
  2. November Another good month for us, and a gap is beginning to open up at the top of the table. We rode our luck at Celtic Park, but Cammy Bell's penalty save ensured we came home with a point, and our performance against Zenit was magnificent. We even had a chance of progressing into the last 16 in the Champions League - a win at Marseille in the final game would have been enough - but I'll take 3rd and a place in the Europa after Christmas.
  3. Heh, I've been there before!
  4. October Two expected defeats to Real Madrid aside, we've had an excellent month. We'd played really well in the home game with them (and I was even able to name 9 Scots in the team for that game) but we've still got a shot at 3rd in the group and a Europa League spot. Can't complain at that, really.
  5. This thread may have been dead for four months, but it's coming back to life later on tonight...
  6. I'm going to have a stab at the PL club being Everton or Newcastle - big clubs, but clubs that can be built, rather than stepping in to a behemoth... Looking forward to the next installment.
  7. Heh, what I didn't show you was the half/one star lads who came through with him. I still find myself hoping for three or four prospects a year, not just one. Greedy? Possibly!
  8. Youth intake Very little in the intake, although this lad has a future
  9. August *Sigh* Yeah, I need to move on. Four goals conceded in 21 league games. FOUR. I've also sold Luis Roberto on, too. He's joined 1860 Munich for €3.5m.
  10. He does looks useful, doesn't he? The jobs I've applied for have both been in Germany, but I'd be interested in something else, too.
  11. UEFA Champions League Play Off 1st leg: BATE 0-5 Örebro SK A clinical and utterly ruthless display in the first leg leaves us with a foot and three quarters in the group. Vladimir Nevinskiy was the star on his return to his homeland, bagging two goals and making a third for Panizza. I subbed him with 10 minutes to play, and his replacement Renan bagged two more in that time for an almost unassailable lead. 2nd leg: Örebro SK 5-0 BATE Perfection. Nevinskiy again was on fire, he bagged two more to take him to 20 for the season. Jakobsson and a Mareș double sealed it. We'll meet Shakhtar, Celtic and REAL MADRID in the group stage.
  12. A pair of unsuccessful applications and a grumpy board... interesting to see what happens in the next few weeks.
