[B][FONT=Verdana]Update 32[/FONT][/B]
[B][FONT=Verdana]Years: 2, Months: 32, Days: 966[/FONT][/B]

[FONT=Verdana]February has passed and it has been a quiet month in terms of sackings, in that there have been no sackings, at least not at the level we will discuss. However, many competitions did move themselves forward, and the managers are approaching that magical 1000 days mark, with just over a month of managing required for those who are going to attain it.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]We’ll start in Italy this time, where [B]Ben Cee[/B]’s Inter top the table. This is a little surprising, as they dropped points on many occasions this month, winning only once, at home to Parma, but the five points they did pick up beat the mere three points picked up by [B]Tyler[/B][B] Burrows[/B]’s Udinese, who contrived to lose three of their four games this month, defeating Rimini 1-0 at home to salvage some if little dignity. A.C. Milan have also overtaken [I]Zebrette[/I]. [B]bermybhoy[/B]'s Atlanta are in 4th place with [B]Ben Taylor[/B]’s Fiorentina 5th, with the former having a troublesome month, winning only over Udinese, and the latter achieving an impressive nine points, dropping points only once in a loss to Marco van Basten’s A.C. Milan. Down the bottom of Serie A, [B]James Salter[/B]’s Reggina are flirting with relegation, but it looks as if they’re likely to be safe save for some massive deterioration in performances. They currently lie four points clear of the bottom three and picked up that many this month, and are six points behind closest rivals Lecce.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Over to England now, where we shall start with the FA Cup. [B]Mark Cator[/B]’s Aston Villa lost their Fourth Round Replay on penalties after a 3-3 draw at the Emirates, and [B]Arnold[/B][B] J. Rimmer[/B]’s Bolton lost theirs away to Barnsley. Middlesbrough mirrored Arsenal and progressed with spot kicks after a 3-3 draw, theirs at home to Cardiff, while Everton knocked out Watford. In the Fifth Round, three of the Big Four clubs still in it, although the notion of Big Four is certainly much more subjective now, progressed with ease, Arsenal thrashing Portsmouth 4-1, Chelsea Coventry 5-1 and Liverpool Burnley 4-0. [B]Bryan[/B][B] McGuiness[/B]’s Everton won at Southend while there were a number of draws involving our teams. Fulham and Middlesbrough drew at the Cottage, as did West Brom at the DW Stadium and Man United and Tottenham at White Hart Lane. Boro progressed 2-1 in the replay, as did West Brom 1-0 and Manchester United 2-1 with an Alexis Sánchez goal in the 92nd minute (of extra time). Their tie against Arsenal is the match of the next round. In the league, [B]Brucie Bonus[/B]’s West Brom are still struggling to avoid the iron grip of the relegation zone, but Bonus himself seems perfectly happy to be stuck in the iron grip of his employers. Despite being Insecure or worse for many months now, the Kyrgyzstani holds on to his job. This month, a win over Fulham and draws against Portsmouth and West Ham picked the team up five points, and they currently lead the struggle between themselves and Bristol City, sitting in 19th place.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Of course February marks the resumption of European football, and we’ll start with the Europa League, which has completed the First Knockout Round stage. [B]Clark Aitken[/B]’s Roma lost 2-3 on aggregate to Celtic, and [B]Super Lampard[/B]’s Lecce saw the end of their European adventure at the hands of Spartak Moscow. Atalanta were another of our sides to go out, this time to Besiktas. In fact, Udinese were the sole Italian side to progress, with Sampdoria also losing, as they beat Shakhtar 2-1 on aggregate thanks to a 1-0 home victory. [B]Leo Dodge[/B]’s Tottenham overcame a humiliating 0-3 defeat at Zaragoza to flip the scoreline at White Hart Lane and win on penalties. [B]Lucas Volman[/B]’s Real Madrid knocked out Zenit St. Petersburg 3-2 on aggregate, winning only 2-1 at home. Man United, Portsmouth and Villarreal also went through. In the Champions League, Schalke hold a 2-0 lead over Liverpool, while [B]Ben Cee[/B]’s Inter will be happy with a 3-2 victory at the Emirates, anticipating a consolidation of the victory in the return leg. Those ties will conclude in March.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]In Spain, Real Madrid’s troubles continue and it is [B]Lars Tommersen[/B]’s Villarreal who take the second place behind Barcelona. They did not lose in the league this month, and dropped points only once, away to [B]Wobill Luman[/B]’s Athletic. As well as this came their Europa League progress, but they lost 2-3 at home to Valencia in the first leg of their cup Semi Final tie. [B]Lawrence[/B][B] Lazewski[/B]’s team lie only 1 points behind them, mirroring their results with three wins but a draw at Athletic. They trail 0-1 to Lyon after their trip to France in the Champions League. Of course Barcelona also had a good month, [B]Haowan Madridstas[/B]’s team beating both Mallorca and Deportivo 5-0. However, they had a few too many 0-0 draws, with one at home to Real in the cup, one away to Almería in the league and one away to Juventus in the Champions League. Real Madrid mirrored Valencia’s and Villarreal’s results, picking up 10 points this month, which is not bad, but [B]Lucas Volman [/B]must still fret a little considering his side’s position, nine points off the top spot. Early leaders Zaragoza have fallen off the pace a bit, and are 6 points behind Madrid in 5th place, and they share 46 points with [B]Cool Manager[/B]’s Atlético Madrid, who won both home games but lost both away games this month.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]In true logical fashion it’s back over to Italy, where [B]Theo St[/B][B]igarakis[/B]’s Catania are in 14th place. It must be boring being Stigarakis, who had two cup games at the start of the season but has since only played league games. They won once, drew twice and lost once this month for another indifferent performance, although their win came at home to A.C. Milan. Stigarakis is as Stable as can be, not daring to either over- or underperform. [B]Jonte Rhodes[/B]’s Lazio, who went unbeaten this month with two wins and two draws, are in 11th place, with Genoa in 10th. [B]Mikey Twigge[/B]’s Palermo are ninth, and they had a poor month with three losses, but their one win did bizarrely come away to Udinese.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Now we focus on the top of the Premier League table, where [B]Tom Smith[/B]’s Arsenal reign supreme. The Gunners have done well to be up there, and they are currently 4 points clear of Rafa Benítez’s Reds. Their league form was fantastic this month, winning all three games, and of course they now have at least two games in hand on most others, after playing the League Cup Final. [B]Andre da Conceiçao[/B]’s Chelsea won, 4-1 on penalties after Arsenal missed their first three, and Smith’s team also lost the home league of their Champions League tie with Inter. Although they are doing well in the league and the FA Cup, are there signs of the team ship beginning to break apart? [B]Martin Bojangles[/B]’s Hull are in the nice position of 4th, although they lost 1-3 to both Merseyside teams this month before winning 1-0 at Eastlands against the team one place above them. Chelsea and Tottenham both lie one point behind, with [B]Leo Dodge[/B]’s side playing only two league games this month, a win and a loss.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Over to Spain now, where [B]Jellybean Man[/B]’s Numancia and [B]Andy Morton[/B]’s Sporting look pretty safe, in 15th and 14th respectively, but both are only one point clear of the bottom three. Morton won once and lost thrice this month, and Man did slightly better, winning once, drawing once and only losing twice. That form won’t set the world alight but a win a month keeps the relegation doctor away. Away doesn’t rhyme with a month, but ‘awonth’ isn’t a word. [B]Phill Ewles[/B]’s Valladolid are in 13th but are 8 points above these two, and they had a pretty good month, with two wins, a draw and a loss.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Brucie Bonus [/FONT][/B][FONT=Verdana]still clings on at West Brom. Zaragoza, Udinese and Tottenham lament their current positions after their early leads. Arsenal seek to avoid dropping out of the Champions League. I predict that the Gunners will have exited the competition next month, and Bonus will have entered the job market too. Still, there’s only one way to find out…[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Manager of the Update[/FONT][/B]
[FONT=Verdana]I found it rather difficult to give the award this month because no one was very good. In the end, it was a toss up between two managers and;[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Lawrence[/FONT][/B][B][FONT=Verdana] Lazewski[/FONT][/B][FONT=Verdana], Valencia[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]wins it over [B]Haowan Madridstas[/B]. Despite a 0-1 defeat in France, which can easily be overcome in the home leg of the Champions League tie, Lazewski beat rival Villarreal in the first leg of the Spanish Cup Semi Final, and secured some nice league form. [B]Lars Tommersen[/B] himself was not too far away from the award, and neither was [B]Tom Smith[/B], who would have won it despite the Champions League loss if he had clinched the Carling Cup. Still, Lazewski had a good month and deserves the award.[/FONT]

I apologize for not having posted over the last 3 updates, but I have been without a computer since I left school for winter break because I left my desktop there and my laptop decided it wanted to die for the 4th time since I have had it. But stable for the last 3 updates is nice, although I would like that to be at least secure and a Manager of the Month win is always nice.

[QUOTE=Walcott\'s Wonderkids;4551921][B]Brucie Bonus[/B] hanging in their by the skin of his teeth at West Brom!

Here's to the continuing successful cup run blinding the chairman from realising I'm taking the club down to the Championship for next season. :D[/QUOTE]



See comments above on last month and repeat. :D


See West Brom got through to the next round of the cup after a replay win.... Europe still in West Brom's capabilities this season!!! :p


KUTGW, great updates as usual. :thup:

[B][FONT=Verdana]Update 33[/FONT][/B]
[B][FONT=Verdana]Years: 2, Months: 33, Days: 997[/FONT][/B]

[FONT=Verdana]With reckless abandon we have stumbled through March and find ourselves on the threshold of April. However, there will be no April Fool’s Jokes here, and we shall instead reflect on what I feel has been a milestone month for our managers, despite the real milestone coming in just three days time when each one of them tallies up their 1000th day of managing their club. Every season, the first couple of months, possibly stretching even to October, present no sackings. November, December, January and February tend to be littered with sackings. After that the chairman calm down somewhat, release their fingers slightly from those triggers and the managers can be fairly confident of completing the season and having another attempt in the next season. This, if it turns out to be true this year, will come as good news to [B]Brucie Bonus[/B], who finds his team in turmoil, almost certain to go down, and the Baggies were dropped back to 20th place this month after Bristol City’s sensational victory at Man City.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]However, it is not England where we start, it is Spain, and considering that the author writes this on a rather chilly 3rd January 2010, hopefully the Spanish weather will act as a hot water bottle. It was only March 20th but Sevilla’s game against Valladolid, as an example, saw temperatures of 28[/FONT][FONT="]°[/FONT][FONT=Verdana]C. Earlier on in the month, however, was played the Spanish Cup Semi Final second leg, where [B]Lars Tommersen[/B]’s Villarreal beat Valencia 1-0 away, only to get eliminated 3-3 on away goals, and where Real Madrid followed up their 0-0 draw at the Nou Camp to win 2-0 at home and progress. For Tommersen, the Spanish Cup pain was not the only pain he and his team had to endure this month, as they also found themselves brutally ejected from the Europa League by a strong Udinese showing that defeated them 3-2 on aggregate. But in general, Tommersen should count his blessings, and it should be [B]Jellybean Man [/B]and [B]Andy Morton [/B]who will be wanting alms if they do not improve their performances. Both are on 22 points and Man’s Numancia hang just inside the relegation zone. Bottom-placed Celta won twice this month to finally reach double figures, meaning that they are now a threat, alongside Espanyol, to Numancia and Sporting, who both accrued one point this month. It is of constant fascination which will go down, if either, as they form is inconsistent tending towards bad. Almería, Recreativo and Tenerife are all floating above these two, and [B]Neji Hyuuga[/B]’s Deportivo are a good distance above Almería points-wise, but the English manager finds himself Insecure. He picked up just one point this month, and it was from exactly the same game as Andy Morton picked his up from.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Over in Italy there is still a feverous race for the top, which [B]Ben Cee[/B] currently leads, having had a good month with his Inter team. As well as picking up seven points from three games this month, slipping up at [B]Super Lampard[/B]’s Lecce, his home draw with Arsenal saw Inter reach the Champions League Quarter Finals by virtue of their victory at the Emirates. [B]Clark Aitken[/B]’s Roma find themselves behind second-placed A.C. Milan on goal difference, which is a shame as the Canadian had a perfect conversion rate on points this month, while one of his wins even knocked competitor [B]Tyler[/B][B] Burrows [/B]down a peg or two, it being over the Udinese boss and his team. Other than that Burrows won all his games this month, save for the Villarreal result where aggregate was his saviour after a 1-2 loss in Spain. [B]bermybhoy[/B]'s Atalanta are in 5th place, picking up 5 points this month, and Fiorentina are in 6th.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]The FA Cup Sixth Round took place this month. [B]Tom Smith[/B]’s Arsenal thrashed José Mourinho’s joke of a Manchester United team 3-1, giving the Gunners hope for extra-curricular silverware despite going out of the Champions League. Chelsea thrashed [B]Ricky Nakano[/B]’s Middlesbrough 5-0 at Stamford Bridge but Liverpool were more conservative in their 1-0 win at the Hawthorns. It took a replay, but [B]Bryan[/B][B] McGuinness[/B]’s Everton defeated West Ham to set up a tie with cross-town rivals Liverpool in the Semi Final, meaning that there are two local derbies in preparation for the final. There is little doubt now that Arsenal will win the Premier League, holding an 11-point lead over second-placed Liverpool. No, what has become more interesting to pundits and fans is whether [B]Martin Bojangles[/B]’s Hull can usurp Chelsea for the fourth Champions League spot. Considering they were predicted 20th place but have now just guaranteed Premier League football for next season, it will have been a good year regardless. This month the Tigers played two games and won both of them, but Chelsea played four and moved ahead due to the two draws they collected on top of their two wins. At the moment, the Premier League seems to be in three parts: the top six, consisting of our Big Five sans Man United, as well as Hull and Spurs; with 10 points separating them from 7th, where Bolton fall into the next band of seven teams on or around 40 points. Three points below Fulham are Sunderland and the next five have 30 to 36 points. That leaves Bristol City and West Brom, also known as the “for all intents and purposes certainly relegated”, who I suppose could be categorised in their own group.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Into Europe now, and the most interesting of Champions League ties I’ve already covered. [B]Cool Manager[/B] will be disheartened as his Atlético Madrid fell to Iberian rivals Benfica. Bayern Munich were the other non-Anglo-Italo-Spanish side to go through, defeating PSV Eindhoven. [B]Haowan Madridstas[/B] got his Barcelona a win over Juventus, and [B]Lawrence Lazewski[/B]’s Valencia moved on past Lyon in a healthy month where they got two nice league wins and a decent league draw, a Spanish Cup final and a Champions League Quarter Final tie against Bayern Munich. Chelsea and Liverpool both won, over A.C. Milan and Schalke respectively, while [B]Liam Ferguson[/B]’s Man City won 3-1 in Portugal to knock out Sporting CP. Inter meet Barcelona in the next round which threatens one of our managers. The Europa League also narrowed its teams from 16 to eight, with Udinese as we know being one of those eight. [B]Leo Dodge[/B]’s Tottenham found themselves on the wrong side of a 1-5 thrashing at Fratton Park, making their 3-1 return victory pointless. Celtic earned a nice 0-0 draw at home to Galatasaray, making one think they could go through, only to lose 0-3 in Turkey. Galatasaray’s neighbours Fenerbahçe also make the last eight ahead of Dynamo Kiev. Man United beat Leverkusen and [B]Lucas Volman[/B]’s Real Madrid beat Braga. Spartak Moscow and Porto also made the Quarter Finals, whose highlight tie may be the Battle of Turkey. Portsmouth meet Udinese, Man United have easy passage into the Last Four, facing Spartak Moscow, and there is an Iberian battle as Porto face Real Madrid.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Los[/FONT][FONT=Verdana] Galácaticos have a bit to celebrate as they have met up with their Big Two buddies Barcelona at the top, although [B]Lucas Volman [/B]and his fans will still resent not having first place. They won all month which is good for the esteem and soul of a Real Madrid fan, as their 7-1 Braga victory reveals a likely Europa League winner. They also thrashed Racing, beat Deportivo, beat Athletic, and of course made that Spanish Cup final. Racing fans, and their manager [B]Maz Armley[/B], should not be too disheartened though, as they got the win over the other half of the Big Two: Barcelona, and they also reversed their 1-4 scoreline to Madrid when playing Sporting. Six points clear at the top, and winning all games save for the Racing and Real Madrid ones, Barcelona look likely to win the title. So we’ll go to a country where the fate of the championship is much less predictable, Italy.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Except we’ve already talked about the top of the table so we’ll talk about the Italian Cup and the bottom of the table instead. [B]Jonte Rhodes[/B]’s Lazio held A.C. Milan 0-0 in the first leg of their Semi Final tie, but are likely to get stuffed in the return leg, so the happiness at the moment lies with [B]Super Lampard[/B]’s Lecce, who hold a 2-1 lead over Sampdoria. They still see relegation danger peeping just over the hill, but who knows, perhaps Lecce could see European football again next season? League-wise, they drew two and lost one this month, and while 8 points is a decent cushion over 18th-placed Rimini, they’ll want to keep up form to reach the finish line. A home tie against Brescia and an away one against Chievo in April may be the ones to give those essential points. [B]Cardio[/B][B] Vascular[/B]’s Genoa are the lowest side that are safe from relegation, and given how boring and lazy they are hogging up mid-table, we’ll take any excuse to talk about them. This month, surprise, surprise, they lost both games against teams higher than them and they won their game against the team lower than them. How exciting! I think it would be wise to place a bet on Genoa winning against lower opposition and losing against higher opposition for every single match. Perhaps predict a draw if their opponents are Juventus, who share their own 43-point haul. Going back down again, and the relegation threat for [B]James Salter[/B]’s Reggina is more real, with just four points staving Rimini off. A lovely win over Lazio on my birthday was a real boost for the team, and they followed it up with an understandable loss to A.C. Milan, and a draw against Cagliari. They have a mixed schedule to play, but a home tie to Rimini might be the clincher.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]So, if my theory is to be upheld, we will see no more sackings now until October. But then the gods of nature might make an exception to sack [B]Brucie Bonus[/B] as he carries West Brom down into the abyss. I wouldn’t be surprised if they picked up no more than about three more points this season: in their seven games they have to face Chelsea, Arsenal and Everton. They also travel to Villa Park and to St. James’s Park. They might scrape a draw against Middlesbrough, but their best bet of a win ironically looks like it will be Manchester United at home![/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Manager of the Update[/FONT][/B]
[FONT=Verdana]The standard wasn’t extremely high and the month was short but;[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Lucas Volman[/FONT][/B][FONT=Verdana], Real Madrid[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]scoops the award for the second time after winning every game in order to reach the Spanish Cup final, Europa League Quarter Final and to reach second place in La Liga also. The team have put their bad performances behind them and have hit a seam of nice form. [B]Clark[/B][B] Aitken [/B]and [B]Martin Bojangles[/B], who also both went unbeaten, could have threatened Volman here, but did not have a huge amount of games although they deserve credit for their efforts. [B]Tom Smith [/B]and [B]Andre da Conceiçao [/B]also did well, admittedly with good teams.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana][I]I have a bit of an update surplus : here's hoping you can take one off my hands.[/I]
[/FONT][B][FONT=Verdana]
Update 34[/FONT][/B]
[B][FONT=Verdana]Years: 2, Months: 34, Days: 1027[/FONT][/B]

[FONT=Verdana]What a cruel twist of fate it is that one of our managers was able only to complete 999 days of his tenure! I guess I was wrong about that sacking-free zone after March: this manager was sacked despite not being in anywhere near as much trouble as a certain other manager. Yes, that’s right: [B]Brucie Bonus [/B]has become our very own John Sergeant as he survives another month. I was also wrong about the bottom two being virtually relegated: while West Brom have in fact found themselves doomed to that fate this month, Bristol City are flying away and only two points from hauling themselves out of that dreadful mess. Bonus’s job security is now Very Insecure, but like the last crumb stuck in your teeth, he may never go away![/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]England[/FONT][FONT=Verdana] is where we shall start, and the Kyrgyzstani manager made it to the 20th April before his side got relegated following a 0-2 loss to Chelsea. They went on to lose to Everton. They have Manchester United at home but once again, I fear I was wrong, as José Mourinho appears to have become ept again and has guided the Red Devils to the top half. [B]Ricky Nakano[/B]’s Middlesbrough were hence displaced to 11th place, despite a decent month with two wins, two draws and a loss. With Bristol City on 35 points in 18th place, [B]Tim Aubel[/B]’s Fulham are the lowest-placed safe team, in 14th. They only won once this month, against equally-underperforming Aston Villa. Hull’s dream of making the top four is over: not only would they have to get eight points from two games, but 4th-placed Liverpool have games in hand. However, a Europa League place is definitely [B]Martin Bojangles[/B]’s.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Tom Smith[/FONT][/B][FONT=Verdana]’s Arsenal, on the same day as West Brom’s relegation, romped to the title, beating Big-Four-team-but-not-really-a-Big-Four-team Man City 2-1 at Eastlands. They had previously beaten West Brom 2-1 and league rivals Liverpool 4-1 with an Eduardo hattrick. But in between the West Brom and Man City games came an altogether more magical moment as Smith guided his team to slam [B]Andre da Conceiçao[/B]’s Chelsea 3-0 in the FA Cup Semi Final at Wembley. They will meet Liverpool at Wembley, and personally I believe they shall win that in style.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Over to Italy now, where Serie A never fails to fascinate. [B]Tyler[/B][B] Burrows [/B]has seemed to send out the message that his Udinese team should not be ruled out from the title, and they ascended to 2nd place. But, seeing as their month was rubbish, it was more down to the ineptitude of A.C. Milan and Roma to rule out Udinese. [B]Ben Cee[/B]’s Inter are still top, by 5 points, after having a good month that maintains faith in Italian teams; they both won and drew twice. Even lowly [B]Cardio[/B][B] Vascular[/B]’s Genoa can still win the league, not that they will, and there is a great string of teams dangling for those top spots. [B]Ben Taylor[/B]’s Fiorentina are 5th, with two wins and two losses this month, but [B]bermybhoy[/B]’s Atalanta hound them, with a win, a draw and two losses but only one point fewer, and they themselves are hounded by [B]Mikey Twigge[/B]’s Palermo, who won twice and lost twice. Palermo are hounded by [B]Lord Weeman[/B]’s Napoli, who won twice, drew once and lost once, who are hounded by Lazio, who are hounded by Juventus and Genoa. I would say the list goes on but it doesn’t. It stops there.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Over in Spain, the relegation zone is just about to start closing its mouth and it looks like [B]Jellybean Man[/B]’s Numancia will get gobbled up. Due to Espanyol sacking their manager and appointing a new one, they have flown out of the bottom three and Man’s team, along with Tenerife, have fallen in. They did win this month, but that was only after four losses, and they have five games to right their situation, with a minimum of four points needed. [B]Andy Morton[/B]’s Sporting are that side with four points more than them, and they did better than Numancia this month, hence them being safe as it stands and Numancia not. With two wins and a draw among their five games, if Morton can pull of those results again next month, safety is very likely to be his. His first is against Numancia, and that’s a real six-pointer. The nearest side of ours in danger, [B]Phill Ewles[/B]’s Valladolid, are actually in no danger at all, and are well past the number of points they need to avoid relegation. Amazingly, they won at Barcelona after five losses, including a home one to lowly Tenerife. But it is the side above them that will prove of more interest to us. After a 0-1 away loss to Almería, [B]Neji Hyuuga [/B]found he was no longer welcome at Deportivo, and was shown the door. The team took four games to gel under their new manager and finally scraped a win at home to [B]Cool Manager[/B]’s Atlético Madrid.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Into the European playground now, starting with the European sand pit: the Europa League. [B]Tyler[/B][B] Burrows[/B]’s Udinese overcame a 0-1 away defeat to see off Portsmouth 2-1, while Fenerbahçe beat Galatasary in the Battle of Turkey. Real Madrid’s 3-0 home victory saw them progress despite struggling to a 2-2 draw in Porto. Finally, as predicted, Manchester United saw no problems in overcoming Spartak Moscow. As it stands, Real Madrid hold a 2-0 lead over Fenerbahçe, after the game in Turkey, while Udinese lost the home leg of their tie 0-1 to the Red Devils. In the Champions League, Man City proved once again that they are not quite Big Four material, going out to Liverpool in the Quarter Final. [B]Lawrence[/B][B] Lazewski[/B]’s Valencia had a shock when Bayern Munich won 2-1 in both legs to knock the Spaniards out. It took away goals for Chelsea to beat Benfica, and [B]Ben Cee[/B]’s Inter’s 1-1 draw at home to Barcelona cost them when the 0-1 return leg defeat sent the Spaniards through. In the Semi Final, Frank Lampard scored the winner at Anfield in a sloppy game, and Bayern Munich were just a little bit worse than Barcelona in their game and earned a 0-0 draw in Germany that will surely see them go out once they travel to Spain.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Let’s go back to Italy now! [B]James Salter[/B]’s Reggina are still succeeding in putting points between them and the bottom three. This month, they did not lose, and only an away trip to Juventus stopped them from winning. Even high-flying Atalanta were stuffed 3-0, not bad for a team so close to the drop. On 36 points, they are tied with both [B]Super Lampard[/B]’s Lecce and [B]Theo St[/B][B]igarakis[/B]’s Catania. Lecce won two and lost two, but found themselves out of the cup as Sampdoria won 1-0 in the return leg of the Semi Final, heading through on away goals. The other team to make the final are A.C. Milan, who beat Lazio just 1-0 at home to do so, and this year’s Italian Cup will not see any of our managers claiming it. This month, Catania won just one of their games, losing the other three, but with all three of these sides five points clear of relegation at the moment, such form would not be too costly.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]In Spain, the three teams in 2nd to 4th are still fighting for those places. [B]Lawrence[/B][B] Lazewski[/B]’s Valencia are the Zeitgest of the month, enjoying some decent if not remarkable form, including a 4-1 away win over Getafe. [B]Lars Tommersen[/B]’s Villarreal are 3rd, doing slightly better than Valencia this month. They won three times and drew twice, not a bad performance. Going elsewhere in La Liga, we see [B]Maz Armley[/B]’s Racing in 8th place, and they enjoyed the same form as Villarreal, picking up the same 11 points from their five games.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Next month is, of course, the finale month, where we see cup finals and league showdowns. While it is likely that there will be no sackings, it is still not to be missed![/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Manager of the Update[/FONT][/B]
[FONT=Verdana]Generally, nobody was that good this month, and there are two clear choices for the award. I eventually decided that;[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Tom Smith[/FONT][/B][FONT=Verdana], Arsenal[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]deserves this award as much as I’d like [B]James Salter [/B]to have it for his unbeaten month at Reggina, a month that might just save them from relegation. In the end, Smith had to win it as, not only did his Arsenal team secure the Premier League title, but a thrashing of Chelsea saw them reach the FA Cup Final in style. In true FM style, I think we’ll see a dominant Arsenal for years to come.[/FONT]

Good stuff. Some really great results in there for me and Arsenal. 4-1 win over Liverpool and 3-0 win over Chelsea. Looking forward to the FA Cup final. Hopefully we can recreate what happened when we played Liverpool this month. Upto very secure job status, and manager of the update. Fantastic. :thup:

Also, unlucky Neji. Getting sacked on the 999th day is pretty darn unlucky.

Going down, going down... gone down! :D

Surely a matter of time now before [B]Brucie Bonus[/B] gets the sack, my guess is that it will probably be just after the end of the season, or when it is no longer mathematically possible for us to finish anything other than 20th.

Wow, 999 days thats harsh, good to see Jonte Rhodes still in charge at Lazio, hopefully he can build up the table next season, or try to get a better job status than Stable. Things can be so quick in this fickle world of management.

Unlucky Neji. :thdn:

I wouldn't mind bringing Boro to another mid table finish. I'll be happy with 11th. Still stable. :)
