Hi, when i was a kid i completely loved Arsenal,i don't know why i just did. And i still love Arsenal just as much as the 1st day i knew about the existence of that team and it feels bad knowing that they haven't won a Premier League since the 03/04 season. I don't know what it is about me that tends to support teams that don't win the league for over a decade such as Liverpool, the last time they won the Premier League i wasn't even alive ( 89/90 ) another team i love and support more than any other team is Sporting CP ( i'm portuguese btw ) again... They haven't won the league since 01/02, but we're not here to talk about other teams so let's move on! For now this is going to be the only tactic i will be using: I started the preseason by arranging new friendlies against small teams to boost the moral of the team and these were the results: Besides that 2-2 draw it was a pretty good preseason, something you'd expect when playing a big team and playing against team's nobody has ever heard of ( no offense if you know or support any of these teams ) Played the game against Chelsea for the community shield ended up getting destroyed even though they only managed to make it a 1-0 loss for us. Moving on! 1st game of the Premier League, our mainly focus of the 1st season. Things started bad for us when Crystal Palace scored on the 26th minute. We managed to score just before half time 2 goals but unfortunately for us they both got disallowed... 87 minutes into the game, it was looking like a loss for us but Olivier Giroud ( 66th minute substitution for Lacazette ) came in HOT and scored the equalizer for us! Game stats below. Not off to a good start but it was only the 1st game of the season so there's still plenty of time to turn this 3 point gap. I'll keep you guys updated throughout the season! Next game was against Everton. A nice 2-1 victory and once again Olivier Giroud saving Arsenal with a late goal after getting into the pitch. He seemed to be playing rather well so i decided to give him some 1st team football. Huddersfield was next and our best scorer was on the pitch from the beginning now. 10 minutes into the game Giroud gets injured. Half time and we were losing 2-0 but luckily for us we managed to score and get another draw. Stoke City now ! We were better than they were but we only got a 1-1 result... Another draw. I think it was clear that the tactic wasn't performing well so i decided to remove all the changes i made to the Team's Instructions and put the mentality back on standard and team shape on flexible to start from scratch. This is our Europa League group by the way. Not a hard group we should go trough to the next stage. We played 2 more games, one against Lokomotiv Moscow for our 1st Europa League game and we won 3-0 another one against Newcastle and guess what? Another 3-0 victory! Seems like the key to success is to keep things as they come choose your formation and win games no instructions needed! xD This is our schedule and league table so far. Remember i said Giroud got injured in the 10th minute of the Huddersfield game? Here's all of the injuries we currently have. I'll keep you guys updated throughout the season ! Our next game was for the Carabao Cup 3rd Round against West Ham. 2-0 Victory! Things are starting to look good for us. Next we have a big away game against Manchester City. We won 3-1 even though they were superior most of the highlights were for us. Our 2nd game of the Europa League group stage was against AEK. AEK is not a hard team to beat and we showed that by making a goal festival on their home, 5-0 for us! Next we had another hard game against Leicester City who are doing awful in this start of the season they were in 20th when we play against them, but they still have a great team and should not be underestimated. Fortunately we kept our good run with a 1-0 victory. International break is here and this is how things are going for us. Im gonna keep playing and i'll update this when i get another big game! Tottenham came next, it was a hard game we were up 2-0 and they scored 1 goal near the end making it 2-1 final result. They played much better than we did it was a lucky game for us. The next game was against West Brom for the Carabao Cup, we dominated possession but shots were pretty much even as you can see below. By this point i was playing the tactic that i recently had made and it seemed to be working pretty well, possession and high pressure football so we can have the ball at all times and when we don't have it, we recover it fast. Our 5th game for the Europa League didn't go so well, it was against Lokomotiv Moskow away from home and we managed to score the equalizer on the 89th minute. Also, Reiss Nelson made his debut for the 1st team and got a rating of 8,6 along with the Player Of The Match award. Not bad at all for the young star's 1st game. The next 2 games were against the big boys, Chelsea and Manchester United. We were in second 1 point away from the 1st place held by Chelsea. Manchester united were 3rd, 5 points away from us so those 2 matches were really important. As you can see we were better than Chelsea but couldn't score. The 3-1 loss against Manchester United really made me think this might have been the start of a bad run, the last 3 games 2 draws and 1 loss not good... Luckily i was wrong, we won the next 2 games 3-0. We qualified for the next Europa League stage and got placed against Maccabi Tel-Aviv. It should be pretty easy to be honest. We finally played against Liverpool and this was the result... Carabao Cup! Again... 1-0 victory After that, we've drawn against West Brom 0-0, won 2-0 against Crystal Palace and lost 2-1 against Everton. Christmas has arrived and this is what our schedule and league table looks like so far. Transfer Window is open and im trying to sell Özil and Sánchez because lets get real here, Özil is 29 even though he's an amazing player his value will only start to drop from now on and Sánchez wants to leave at the end of the season. Im thinking about buying Thomas Lemar to replace Sánchez but there might be better options for the future, if you guys know any please let me know!
