An awesome month, but the league title looks out of the question. Could get 3 trophies this season and finish runner-up in the league which would be an amazing performance.

[B][FONT=Verdana]Update 103[/FONT][/B]
[B][FONT=Verdana]Years: 8, Months: 103, Days: 3130[/FONT][/B]

[FONT=Verdana]Let’s start the first update of 2017 in Italy, why not? Marco van Basten’s A.C. Milan continue to lead the way, but we have a new second-placed team. [B]Lord Weeman[/B]’s Napoli climbed two places with five wins. They opened their account for the month with a 2-0 victory over Udinese, before sealing a comfortable 4-1 win over Roma. They then beat Lazio, Genoa and Sampdoria, and also knocked Fiorentina out of the Coppa Italia with a 1-0 victory. Udinese suffered a further two defeats in the month as well as going out of the Italian Cup, and this allowed [B]Ben Taylor[/B]’s Fiorentina to climb to within a point of them. However, Taylor’s team lost two games this month, but they beat Parma, Frosinone and Bologna.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Tom Smith[/FONT][/B][FONT=Verdana]’s Arsenal continue to lead the way in the Premier League. They did drop points at St. James’ Park this month, but were consoled by victories over Hull, Birmingham, Ipswich and Chelsea. A 1-0 win saw them through the FA Cup 3rd Round against [B]Neilio[/B]’s Ipswich, and they easily saw off Hartlepool in Round 4 with a 4-0 win, thanks to a brace from 32-year-old Emmanuel Adebayor. [B]Leo Dodge[/B]’s Tottenham will have to get through a replay if they want a place in the Fifth Round: they were held at Selhurst Park by [B]James Ridley[/B]’s Crystal Palace. They cleared the Third Round by winning 2-0 at Gillingham, and they also put in a decent league performance this month. Wins over Middlesbrough and cup holders Aston Villa opened the month, and one point was then gained from ties against Manchester teams; a 1-2 loss at the City of Manchester Stadium but a 2-2 draw hosting United. Sunderland and Everton, both linked by [B]Scott Tysoe[/B], were then beaten in Spurs’ final two games of the month. If they come through against Palace, they will host Championship leaders West Brom, while Arsenal will travel to either Reading or Wigan.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Of course, much like points mean prizes, January means transfers (I also used that line in Update 91). There was plenty to write home about this month, but I live at home so there’s no point in me sending myself a letter. So I’ll just stick it all in here. [B]Haowan Madridstas[/B] made the joint-biggest transfer of the month by bringing Olaf Urban to the Nou Camp. The former Chelsea defensive midfielder is German and 24, having already made eight appearances for his national team. He commanded a price tag of £25.5M, matched by half of Ghanaian youngster Lawrence Agyemang, whom A.C. Milan partially purchased from Palermo. The highest non-regen transfer was of the enigmatic ‘Oscar’, who joined Real Madrid from Lazio for £21M. Real also brought in Ivorian attacking midfielder Lamine Kone from Shakhtar for £17M, and Barcelona also bought Ivan Rakitic from Chelsea for £14.75M. Meanwhile, [B]Lord Weeman [/B]sold Marquinhos to Roma for £13.25M and [B]Tom Smith[/B] bought out the co-ownership deal of Victor Manuel Marañón, a 22-year-old Spanish attacking midfielder, by paying Roma and A.C. Milan £9.5M each. Udinese bought Juventus midfielder Marco Larini for £4.6M.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Let’s conclude the report with some news on football in Spain. [B]Lucas Volman[/B]’s Real Madrid lead La Liga, having won four of five games this month. The crunch match between them and Barcelona ended level, but Real recorded clean sheet wins over Málaga, Zaragoza, Recreativo and Athletic Bilbao. They also came through two rounds of the Copa del Rey, beating Getafe 2-1 on aggregate in the Last 16, and Villarreal 2-1 on aggregate in the Final Eight. Barcelona’s month was just as successful as their rivals’. They also recorded four out of five wins in the league, overcoming Athletic, Hércules, Sevilla and Villarreal, and [B]Haowan Madridstas[/B]’s team too came through two Spanish Cup rounds, defeating Athletic 5-2 and Elche 3-1. They face Atlético Madrid in the Semi Final, while Real Madrid face Zaragoza.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]So, all of our teams are doing moderately well. But maybe there is a huge slip-up around the corner![/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]There probably isn’t, though.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Manager of the Update[/FONT][/B]
[FONT=Verdana]This one is more difficult to give.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Lord Weeman[/FONT][/B][FONT=Verdana], Napoli[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]gets this award for having a good month that came a bit out of the blue. He won all five league games and his cup game, and also made a £13.25M profit from transfers. [B]Tom Smith [/B]and [B]Haowan Madridstas[/B] were also in contention, but both spent money, and [B]Lucas Volman [/B]was slightly further beyond.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Update 104[/FONT][/B]
[B][FONT=Verdana]Years: 8, Months: 104, Days: 3158[/FONT][/B]

[FONT=Verdana]As the season slips slowly into its closing stages, let’s examine the performances of our seven managers in the month of February.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Of course European competition resumed this month with the knockout stages of both the Champions League and the Europa League. In the smaller of the two, [B]Tyler Burrows[/B]’s Udinese overpowered PSV Eindhoven with two 3-0 victories, in order to make the Last 16. His team face [B]Phill Ewles[/B]’s Valladolid; Man City and Man United are two of the only three other sides led by our former managers to have made it this far, and they face each other too. Rangers are the other, managed by [B]Lars Tommersen[/B], and they face his former club, Villarreal.Just the first leg was played in the Champions League; Real Madrid look like the easiest selection for the Quarter Finals after their 2-0 win at Hamburger SV. Arsenal won 2-1 at Napoli, making them very likely Quarter Finalists, and Barcelona also lead Tottenham 2-0 after the match at the Nou Camp. [B]Ben Cee[/B]’s Valencia welcomed his former team to Nuevo Mestalla, beating Inter 3-1.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]In a surprise upset, [B]Leo Dodge[/B]’s Tottenham failed to come through their FA Cup Fourth Round replay at home to Crystal Palace. [B]James Ridley[/B]’s side booked their place in Round Five by scoring the only goal of the match. As some sort of scant consolation, Spurs went unbeaten in the league, beating Fulham and Ipswich and drawing with Portsmouth. As for Arsenal’s FA Cup campaign, it is still going strong. They required a replay to beat Wigan, but when it got to the second match, at the Emirates, [B]Tom Smith[/B]’s side ran out 6-0 victors, with Frenchman Samir Nasri scoring a hattrick. The Gunners played two league games this month, with a midweek one starting March, but they were two tough games. Three points were picked up at the City of Manchester Stadium with a 2-1 victory over [B]Lawrence Lazewski[/B]’s side, and one point was picked up at Anfield. In other England news, [B]Tim Aubel[/B]’s Portsmouth picked up their manager’s first career title by lifting the Carling Cup after a 4-2 victory over [B]Martin Bojangles[/B]’s Aston Villa. Pompey are currently 6th in the league and are hopeful of a European spot. And ailing West Ham, in 19th place, sacked their manager [B]Brettney Joven[/B] this month, replacing her with [B]Jellybean Man[/B], one of the oldest of our managers and one already well-acquainted with relegation.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]We’ll hop over to Italy now, where Napoli fell back to third place due to the resilient performance of [B]Cool Manager[/B]’s Inter. Napoli lost to Inter in the first game of the month, before grabbing five points from the next three games, including a goalless draw hosting A.C. Milan. [B]Tyler Burrows[/B]’s Udinese sit in 4th place, hoping they can get back into the Champions League. They won all four games this month, leaving Parma, Frosinone, Juventus and Bologna trembling in their wake. Following the Andorran in fifth place is [B]Ben Taylor[/B] and his Fiorentina side. They would have won all four; they beat Roma, Genoa and Modena and put three goals past Inter, but Manager’s side managed to put four past Fiorentina and win 4-3 away. All in all though, a good month for Taylor, although he still trails Burrows’s Champions League spot by four points.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Lucas Volman[/FONT][/B][FONT=Verdana]’s Real Madrid continued their campaign for La Liga with three wins out of three this month. They beat Hércules, Sevilla and Racing to notch up the maximum nine points, but a Spanish Cup draw at home to Zaragoza, 2-2, may leave them out of that competition. Barcelona had a slightly better cup result, drawing with Atlético Madrid but away from home, although they were left wanting in the league. Although Deportivo and Sporting were beaten, [B]Haowan Madridstas[/B]’s team lost 2-3 to both Racing and Valencia. But the Catalonians moved up to 4th after Atlético lost to [B]Fréderico Canvey[/B]’s Alavés, and the two teams will meet up at the Nou Camp in their very next game.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]So there is still plenty to be lost and gained. With just over ten games remaining in each of our leagues, time is beginning to run out for those who want to sneak into European places and title spots. The season rolls on in Update 105.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Manager of the Update[/FONT][/B]
[FONT=Verdana]It’s another award for;[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Tyler Burrows[/FONT][/B][FONT=Verdana], Udinese[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]after he won all four league games with ease and dumped PSV Eindhoven out of the Europa League with two 3-0 victories. Such a success in all competitions they entered was not matched by any of our other managers; [B]Lucas Volman [/B]won in the league and the Champions League but had a very poor Copa del Rey game, and [B]Tom Smith[/B] did well in the Champions League, but struggled slightly in the league and FA Cup. Either of those two could have won the award on another day, but not today I’m afraid.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana][I]As it's the anniversary of the unification of Vietnam, have a free update![/I]
[/FONT][B][FONT=Verdana]
Update 105[/FONT][/B]
[B][FONT=Verdana]Years: 8, Months: 105, Days: 3189[/FONT][/B]

[FONT=Verdana]With the season coming towards a close, let’s start in Spain. [B]Lucas Volman[/B]’s Real Madrid lead La Liga, but they now hold a slim one-point lead over [B]Ben Cee[/B]’s Valencia. The Singaporean manager is looking to get Valencia their first league title since 2004. Valencia did the necessary work this month, beating Real 2-1 at the Bernabéu, and Volman also dropped two points in the form of an away draw with Deportivo, although he did guide his team to a 1-0 victory over rivals Atlético Madrid. A remarkable performance in the Spanish Cup meant that a 1-0 victory away to Zaragoza put Real through, and they beat Hamburger SV 2-0 to record a 4-0 aggregate win in the Champions League. Meanwhile, [B]Haowan Madridstas[/B]’s Barcelona have dropped out of the top four, but they are level on points with fourth-placed Atlético. This month they lost to the team from the capital in the league, although they won 3-1 in the cup to seal their Final place, 4-2. They also knocked Tottenham out of the Champions League 2-1 despite a 0-1 defeat at White Hart Lane. Their second league match was a 4-0 win over Real Sociedad.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]In Italy, A.C. Milan are still unbeaten and still lead Serie A, and it is really only a question now of which two of our three sides will get Champions League football next year. [B]Lord Weeman[/B]’s Napoli are currently looking the most likely candidates; they are in 3rd place with a five-point lead over fourth-placed Udinese. This month, Weeman won two of his matches, beating Parma and Frosinone comfortably, but lost 2-3 a crucial match against Fiorentina. They also lost 2-3 to Arsenal at the Emirates, meaning they leave the Champions League by a respectable 3-5 scoreline. Their third loss of the month was in Rome against Lazio, but the 1-2 defeat leaves them hope for the second leg of their Coppa Italia Semi Final. As for Udinese, the month cannot be described too positively by [B]Tyler Burrows[/B]. It started with a 3-1 win over Palermo, followed by a 1-0 home victory over Olympiakos in the Europa League. Udinese then lost 0-1 at Roma and 0-1 in Greece, where [B]Phill Ewles[/B]’s team put them out on penalties. A trip to play second-placed Inter also ended in defeat, 0-2. Finally, as well as beating Napoli, [B]Ben Taylor[/B]’s Fiorentina beat Atalanta 4-1 in their only other game of the month.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]In England, the magnanimous [B]Leo Dodge[/B] has been paying his compliments to fellow managers. He sympathised with Birmingham boss Trevor Francis, for being in the unenviable position of 19th and likely to go down. He also stated his belief that Hull manager Alan Irvine is the man to keep the Tigers up; Hull sit 17th. Dodge had a mixed month. As promised, he didn’t do Hull any favours, beating them 3-0, but his Tottenham Hotspur team also lost 0-2 to [B]Jellybean Man[/B]’s West Ham. There was also, of course, that 1-0 win over Barcelona which wasn’t good enough to reach the Champions League Quarter Finals. The Premier League is still led by Arsenal, who have opened up a gap of 12 points at the top. Managed by Portuguese manager [B]Tom Smith[/B], they won two of their three games this month; a 3-2 win at Fratton Park and a 3-0 victory at home to Leeds. They went one better in their cup tie against the Whites, beating them 4-0, and they also, of course, got their Champions League Quarter Final place at the expense of Napoli.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Rounding up with some cup news, mainly next games. Arsenal’s FA Cup Semi Final will come against fellow Londoners Chelsea, and will be hosted at Wembley as per the norm. The other Semi Final will see Liverpool taking on West Ham, so there is the possibility of an all-London final, not seen since 2002. Inter won 3-2 at Roma in their Coppa Italia tie, so look likely opponents of either Napoli or Lazio in the Final. Real Madrid and Barcelona will be the two teams in the Copa del Rey Final, which hasn’t actually happened since 1990. In Europe, Marseille face Real Madrid in the Champions League Quarter Final. Inter, who beat the home of their new manager, Valencia, play Arsenal, Bayern Munich play Barcelona and Liverpool play A.C. Milan. In the Europa League, [B]Lars Tommersen[/B]’s Rangers play Stuttgart, AS Monaco play Atlético Madrid, Lazio play Roma in a Rome derby, and Olympiakos face Man City. Australia became the second side to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, alongside hosts and holders Spain, after they opened up a sufficient gap over Saudi Arabia in their qualification group. England won their latest game, 2-1 in Lithuania, while Northern Ireland lost 1-2 to Montenegro, Ireland lost 0-2 at home to the Czech Republic, Scotland drew 1-1 in Turkey and [B]Saul Goode[/B]’s Wales pulled off a good 3-1 win in Poland, thanks to goals from Joe Ledley, Ched Evans and Sam Vokes. The next matches come in June.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]So that’s that. I’ll leave you with this news which will prove of interest to [B]Lawrence Lazewski[/B]. Reports are coming in that there has been a break through in the Manchester City takeover talks. According to the English Football Messenger, discussions between Man City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak and director Garry Cook are going well and there could be an announcement in the next few days. Lazewski, alongside [B]Bryan McGuinness [/B]at rivals United and [B]Neppo Monster[/B] at Conventry, is said to be ‘Under Pressure’.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Manager of the Update[/FONT][/B]
[FONT=Verdana]There was a bit of a shortage of eligible managers for this award.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Ben Taylor[/FONT][/B][FONT=Verdana], Fiorentina[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]for picking up maximum points in his two games. Taylor won both games, and while he didn’t play many, you can only win what’s put in front of you. [B]Tom Smith[/B] also did well, picking up all but two of the points available this month and progressing in the Champions League, and [B]Lucas Volman[/B]’s unlikely progression to the Copa del Rey Final is something to be admired.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Update 106[/FONT][/B]
[B][FONT=Verdana]Years: 8, Months: 106, Days: 3219[/FONT][/B]

[FONT=Verdana]April has passed and the season is now winding down. Let’s look at how our managers did this month, and whether there might be any sackings around the corner.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]We’ll start in England, where [B]Tom Smith[/B]’s Arsenal have their fifth consecutive league title under wraps, and their seventh under the Portuguese manager. This month, the Gunners won three of their five games, drawing with Aston Villa and Everton, including a 4-1 win at Old Trafford, and that was all that was required to put the Premier League to bed. Now Smith can focus on his club’s Champions League campaign, which I’ll cover in detail later on. Meanwhile, [B]Leo Dodge[/B]’s Tottenham need just one more point to ensure Champions League football next season, and with a home game against Leeds (coming after a trip to the Emirates), that should be possible. In April, Dodge and his team won five matches, with wins over Birmingham, Stoke, Newcastle, Man City and Liverpool but a loss to Chelsea. Elsewhere in England, Arsenal lost their FA Cup Semi Final to Chelsea 1-3. Valuable Scottish player John Fleck opened the scoring for the Pensioners in just the first minute, and Pablo de Barros made it 2-0 before half time. Two goals early on in the second half, one at each end, finished off the match goal-wise but there was plenty of action as Arsenal sought in vain for another goal. West Ham beat Liverpool on penalties so Chelsea will face the almost-relegated Hammers in the Final.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]In European football, we saw the Champions League Quarter Finals this month. Real Madrid started with a 2-1 win at the Stade Vélodrome over Marseille, and followed that up with a 5-0 victory at home over the French. Meanwhile, [B]Cool Manager[/B]’s Inter and [B]Tom Smith[/B]’s Arsenal drew 1-1 in Italy, allowing the Gunners to swoop to victory in the return leg with a 4-1 win at the Emirates. A.C. Milan, like Real Madrid, won their first leg away, this time against Liverpool, and they knocked [B]Mikey Twigge[/B]’s side out with a 3-2 victory at home, completing a 5-3 aggregate win. And Barcelona travelled to Munich, where they lost 0-2 to Bayern. Things were getting desperate when Bayern took the lead in the return leg in Spain. Barcelona equalised but then went behind again. A further three goals, however, while they won the match, were not enough to stop [B]Haowan Madridstas[/B]’s side going out on away goals. Both the Semi Final First Legs ended in draws, 2-2 at the Emirates between Arsenal and Real Madrid, thanks to a late goal from Fernando Gago levelling the scores for Real and making them odds-on to reach their second consecutive final, and 1-1 in Germany between Bayern Munich and A.C. Milan. One thing is for sure; Barcelona’s run of eight consecutive Finals has come to an end thanks to Bayern Munich.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Of course we musn’t forget about Europe’s smaller competition, even though we don’t have any managers in it any longer. One of our former managers lost; [B]Lars Tommersen[/B]’s Rangers going out 3-5 on aggregate to Stuttgart. Meanwhile, Atlético Madrid and Lazio both booked their places in the Europa League Semi Final with a 7-2 win over Monaco and a 2-1 win over Roma respectively. And in the battle between two of our former managers, [B]Lawrence Lazewski[/B] triumphed when his Man City side knocked out Olympiakos 4-2 on aggregate. City are already bettering that in the Semi Final, winning the first leg 6-1 against Stuttgart. Atlético and Lazio drew 1-1 in Spain in the other Semi Final first leg.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Over to Spain now, where we’ll be watching to see if Barcelona can get Champions League football next year. But while we were doing that, [B]Ben Cee[/B]’s Valencia crept ahead of Real Madrid in the race for the title! Winning five out of seven games this month, slightly better than Real’s four out of six, the former Inter boss guided his team to top of the table, but only by a point and having played a game more. Barcelona, meanwhile, opened up a five point gap over fifth place, which is now occupied by Racing, as Atlético Madrid fell away. [B]Haowan Madridstas[/B]’s team beat Getafe, Mallorca, Alavés, Recreativo and Málaga before ending the month with a draw at Elche. With five games left the top four finish isn’t signed and sealed, but this month will not be unwelcome in the quest for it.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Do you remember that I told you about how in Italy, all our three teams are close together and challenging for the two remaining Champions League spots? Well, a sudden reversal in fortune means that [B]Ben Taylor[/B]’s Fiorentina have plummeted down to 8th place and are virtually out of contention. The points totals in that area of the table are close, but not that close: Fiorentina can now finish 4th and no higher. Losses to Mantova, Brescia, A.C. Milan and Lazio this month, as well as a 0-5 home defeat to Udinese, were reprieved only by a 4-0 win over [B]Theo Stigarakis[/B]’s Empoli, who currently sit 14th. Neither Udinese nor Napoli are confident of their top four finish yet, but they did a lot more this month to solidify it than Fiorentina did. Aside from their 5-0 victory over Taylor’s team, [B]Tyler Burrows[/B]’s Udinese beat Modena, who have just been relegated, 2-1, Genoa 4-1, Empoli 4-0 and Atalanta 2-0, gaining fifteen points from a maximum of fifteen. [B]Lord Weeman [/B]beat Brescia and Mantova, drew with Juventus and at Empoli and lost to Atalanta away. Not setting the world alight, but not combusting like Fiorentina, and overall a satisfactory month, although one that could be rued if that fourth placed finish is not achieved. On the plus side, Napoli beat Lazio 4-1 in the second leg of their Coppa Italia Semi Final, for a 5-3 aggregate which means a Final against Inter. When they got to the Final last year, Napoli suffered a penalty defeat against Inter’s cross-city rivals A.C., and they’ll be hoping for a better result this time around.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]As the managers prepare to finish their ninth year in charge of their clubs, let’s see how their financial prospects have improved since then. Of course they have picked up plenty of earnings over their career, but it is a good indicator of their ability if we look at how much they are earning per week at the moment. All seven started off earning £10,000 a week, and [B]Lucas Volman[/B] is the one to have moved up the most from that, increasing it 35-fold to accumulate a weekly income of £350,000. Other obscene earners are [B]Tom Smith[/B], who brings home weekly £210,000, and [B]Haowan Madridstas[/B], who pockets £140,000. The next highest earner is £91,000p/w further back: [B]Leo Dodge [/B]on £49,000. [B]Tyler Burrows[/B] earns the least, £28,500 each week, while Lord Weeman earns £43,000p/w and [B]Ben Taylor [/B]£41,000. Of the managers who are at new clubs, [B]Fréderico Canvey[/B] is the worst off and is actually earning less than the initial £10,000 he was taking home at Stoke. He’s now on a salary of £3,200p/w and joins four other former managers of ours in earning less than £10,000p/w ([B]Neppo Monster [/B]at Coventry, £5,500; [B]James Ridley[/B] at Crystal Palace, £6,250; [B]Neilio [/B]at Ipswich, £6,500; [B]Theo Stigarakias[/B] at Empoli, £8,750). The highest earner of our former managers is [B]Tim Aubel[/B], who is £500 worse off than Leo Dodge each week, taking home £48,500 each week. If you thought that was weird, Man City boss [B]Lawrence Lazewski [/B]only earns £18,750 each week. [B]Ben Cee[/B] at Valencia earns just £26,000 a week, and [B]Cool Manager[/B]’s salary at Inter is only £29,500. The mean salary of our seven managers is £123,071 (Median £49,000), and of all our former and current managers £47,448 (Median £25,750).[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Manager of the Update[/FONT][/B]
[FONT=Verdana]This is a pretty easy award to give;[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Tyler Burrows[/FONT][/B][FONT=Verdana], Udinese[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]picks up his third award from the last five for having yet another strong month. He’s our lowest earner but that doesn’t give him an excuse for poor management, so he continues to inspire performances in his Udinese players. [B]Leo Dodge [/B]was another name in the ring but he fell slightly short of the standard set by Burrows this month.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Update 107[/FONT][/B]
[B][FONT=Verdana]Years: 8, Months: 107, Days: 3250[/FONT][/B]

[FONT=Verdana]So season number nine has come to a close. Let’s see if any of our teams pulled off amazing feats at the death, and or if any of our teams bottled it.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]We’ll start in Italy, where A.C. Milan put away the title this month, ending up eventually with a 12-point lead over second-placed Inter. Down the lower end, Lecce, Bologna and Modena went down to Serie B, to be replaced by Siena, Torino, and one of four other teams. Napoli and Udinese claimed the other two Champions League spots, while [B]Ben Taylor[/B]’s Fiorentina recovered to claim a Europa League place. In May, Fiorentina beat Lecce, Sampdoria and Parma, although they lost 1-2 at home to Frosinone in their final game, but that was a loss that had no impact on their position. [B]Tyler Burrows[/B]’s Udinese ended a good season with a poor final month: wins over Mantova and Lazio were good, but more important losses to Brescia and table neighbours Napoli were bad. As well as their victory over Udinese, [B]Lord Weeman[/B]’s side beat Bologna and Palermo, although they lost 1-4 away to Roma on the final day. They also took part in the Coppa Italia Final.[/FONT]

[QUOTE][I][FONT=Verdana]Road to the Final – Coppa Italia[/FONT][/I]
[B][FONT=Verdana]Lord Weeman[/FONT][/B][FONT=Verdana]’s Napoli began their campaign in the 1st Round, defeating Palermo 4-0. Up next came a home tie against Fiorentina; tricky, but overcome by a margin of one goal to nil. [B]Cool Manager[/B]’s Inter also started in the 1st Round, beating Bologna 2-1. They then welcomed Udinese, and won by the same scoreline. Inter’s Semi Final was against Roma, and a 3-2 away win in the first leg stood them in good stead. A 2-2 draw at home was enough to put them into the Final. Napoli, meanwhile, lost their first leg 1-2 away to Lazio. But a 4-1 win at home in the second leg gave Weeman’s side their second consecutive Final.[/FONT][/QUOTE] [FONT=Verdana]Rome’s Olimpico, as always, was the host for the Final. The match was goalless up until and beyond half time, but Inter got the breakthrough they needed, and one against the run of play, in the 56th minute. Portuguese star Yannick Djaló was let in by a sloppy Napoli defence, who saw Daniel Carriço’s long ball forward fall to the 31-year-old. Djaló didn’t even have to deal with a goalkeeper, as Napoli’s was adrift in the box and offered no hope of getting to the ball. But all was not lost for Napoli, who got a goal back just five minutes before what would have been the final whistle. After several opporunities for Inter to clear and or tackle, Napoli’s Vittorio Mattioli took a shot, which deflected off Zdravko Kuzmanovic and in, and was given as an own goal. The deadlock wasn’t settled in extra time, so penalties would be needed. Inter went first, with attacking midfielder Tales scoring. Napoli levelled via Ivan Fatic, but Inter’s next shot was saved by Nicolás Navarro. Napoli went 2-1 ahead with Marek Hamsik’s kick, and both sides scored their third penalties. Inter levelled at 3-3 thanks to goalscorer Yannick Djaló, and then Éder cracked under the pressure, squandering Napoli’s lead when his limp shot was saved by Júlio César. Daniel Carriço scored for Inter, meaning Aleksander Kolarov had to score to keep Napoli in it. He did, and Napoli won back the advantage when Navarro saved Garry Bocaly’s ‘confident’ penalty. Choco scored to give Napoli the Italian Cup![/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]In other Cup news, [B]Lawrence Lazewski[/B]’s Man City made the Europa League Final with a 1-1 draw in Stuttgart sending them through 7-2 on aggregate. Atlético Madrid and Lazio drew 0-0 in Italy which means that Lazio went through 1-1 on away goals. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be for Lazewski, whose team lost 0-1 at Arnhem’s GelreDome, when Lazio’s 16-year-old Enrico Baldi, who plays in ther under 20s, scored a neat goal in the 26th minute. Just because you are dominating the game and just because he is 16, there is no reason to leave him unmarked and onside.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Man City finished their league campaign in 3rd place, which does mean they can have another crack at the Europa League, but they’d probably prefer to stay in the Champions League. [B]Leo Dodge[/B]’s Tottenham lost 2-3 at the Emirates and then lost 0-1 at home to seventh-placed Leeds, meaning that they dropped like a rock out of the top four, and will only get Europa League football next season. Dodge is currently Insecure but I wouldn’t say he will go; if he was going he would surely be gone already. Arsenal, naturally, get into the Champions League alongside Man City, and Liverpool and Chelsea, and Aston Villa, Portsmouth and relegated West Ham join Spurs in the Europa League. The Hammers lost the FA Cup Final 0-3 to Chelsea, but still enter into Europe, playing Roma one week and Reading the next. Birmingham and Stoke join them, while Wigan, Leicester and [B]James Ridley[/B]’s Crystal Palace replace those three teams in the Premier League next season. Ridley’s team won the Championship by securing one more point than the Latics. [B]Neppo Monster[/B]’s Coventry finished 8th, while his former club Bolton finished 15th.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]What seemed impossible was done in Spain this month: [B]Ben Cee[/B]’s Valencia won La Liga, ending Barcelona and Real Madrid’s 12-year reign. The club have endured some difficulties in recent times, since the departure of [B]Lawrence Lazewski[/B], and recorded a low of 9th in the division. That finish led the board to choose Cee to replace José Mourinho, and two years later he has returned the crown to the Mestalla. In May, the Singaporean only won two of four matches, but Real Madrid’s inability to win more than one meant that Valencia’s work was sufficient. [B]Lucas Volman [/B]beat Málaga, but drew with Villarreal and lost to both Barcelona and Zaragoza. Barcelona ensured Champions League football next season by finishing fourth, fending off Atlético Madrid with three wins out of five in May. Mallorca went down, sacking their manager in the process, and [B]Fréderico Canvey[/B]’s Alavés also went down, but they kept theirs as he is still earning less than the tea lady. No, I’m kidding: Canvey earns in a week what the tea lady, Margérita, takes two or three months to earn. Deportivo also go down, with Valladolid being the only certainty at the moment for promotion. Murcia, Tenerife and Espanyol are competing for the other two promotion spots. As for Real Madrid, well they had two cup finals with which to console themselves.[/FONT]

[QUOTE][I][FONT=Verdana]Road to the Final – Copa del Rey[/FONT][/I]
[B][FONT=Verdana]Lucas Volman[/FONT][/B][FONT=Verdana]’s side started their quest for the Spanish Cup way back in Round 4, when they beat Vecindario 12-1 on aggregate, including a 9-0 home victory. They then beat Getafe 2-1 at home, meaning a 0-0 away draw was good enough to reach the Quarter Finals. Their Final opponents, Barcelona, beat Eibar in the Fouth Round, 2-1 away and 4-0 at home, before knocking out Athletic de Bilbao 5-2 on aggregate in Round 5. Their Quarter Final came against Elche, whom they beat 2-0 at home before drawing 1-1 away. Real Madrid, meanwhile, knocked Villarreal out at the Quarter Final stage, winning 1-0 at home and drawing 1-1 away. They then drew 2-2 at home to Zaragoza in the first leg of their Semi Final, but still went through by virtue of a 1-0 away win. Barcelona made the Final by drawing 1-1 away to Atlético Madrid and winning 3-1 at home.[/FONT][/QUOTE] [FONT=Verdana]Valencia’s Nuevo Mestalla hosted the Final, welcoming close to 75,000 fans. Barcelona took the lead very early on through Lionel Messi, and kept that lead until half time. In the second half, a 15 minute spell of dominance saw the advantage turn to Real. The first goal came in minute 71, when Fernando Gago curled his shot into the net from long range. The second came in minute 85, when Mamadou Sakho made a run to head home Wesley Sneijder’s corner. With Barcelona unable to recover, [B]Lucas Volman[/B] retained the Copa del Rey for the third successive year.[/FONT]

[QUOTE][I][FONT=Verdana]Road to the Final – Champions League[/FONT][/I]
[FONT=Verdana]Bayern Munich were drawn into Group G of the Champions League, alongside Sparta Prague, Dinamo Kiev and Chelsea. Jürgen Klinsmann’s team started with two wins, over Prague and in Ukraine, and then achieved a highly desirable 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge. They won the return leg against Chelsea 2-1, before beating both Sparta Prague away and Dinamo Kiev at home 3-0 in their final two games. The Last 16 drew them against Zaragoza, where they lost 1-2 away but prevailed with a 3-1 home victory. Meanwhile, their opponents, [B]Lucas Volman[/B]’s Real Madrid, swept through a group containing Galatasary, Saint Etienne and Sporting CP, winning all home matches conceding only one goal, and picking up five points from the away ties. Their Last 16 tie came against Hamburger SV, whom they beat with two 2-0 victories. They then met Marseille, who had pushed Barcelona into second place in their group, in the Quarter Finals, beating the French team 7-1 on aggregate including a 2-1 win at the tricky Stade Vélodrome.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Bayern Munich’s Quarter Final tie was against another Spanish side, Barcelona. Barça had reached the last eight finals, and even a 2-0 home win didn’t give Bayern fans much faith. But a 2-4 defeat at the Nou Camp sent the Germans through due to the precious away goals rule, to a tie against A.C. Milan. They struggled in the first leg in Germany, drawing 1-1 with the soon-to-be Serie A champions. But a miraculous 3-0 victory at the San Siro, where A.C. were a man down within 3 minutes, put Klinsmann’s side into the Final. They would meet Real Madrid, who overcame Tottenham in their Semi Final, drawing 2-2 at White Hart Lane and 0-0 at home to progress on away goals.[/FONT][/QUOTE] [FONT=Verdana]Istanbul’s Ali Sami Yen Sports Complex, otherwise known as the Türk Telekom Arena, hosted the Final, welcoming 52,646 fans into its echelons. They didn’t have to wait long for a goal, as Real Madrid scored after just eight minutes. Bayern captain Phillip Lahm’s defensive throw-in was given straight to Daniel Schwaab, who found Klaas-Jan Huntelaar in the box with ease. Huntelaar simply powered the ball into the goal for the lead. Six minutes later, Rafael Sóbis made it 2-0 with his header, Schwaab again the provider. Real Madrid kept possession well, and though they didn’t make loads of shots, this was a sign of their clinical efficiency, working the ball into better areas and getting the shots that counted. They frustrated Bayern, who ended up ending pretty much every move with a speculative shot from long range. [B]Lucas Volman[/B] deservedly picked up his fourth Champions League.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]So that’s another season under the belt, and one that ended well for Napoli, decently for Arsenal, Fiorentina, Udinese, Real Madrid and Barcelona, but disastrously for Tottenham. While all teams made some losses in terms of the ambitions they harboured at the end of last month, they all made some gains, except for Tottenham, who fell out of the top four and whose manager is the closest of ours to the sack for 16 updates – the one in danger there was [B]Liam Ferguson[/B], who did get his P45. Can [B]Leo Dodge[/B] survive it?[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Manager of the Update[/FONT][/B]

Although he lost out on the La Liga title to Valencia, who themselves didn’t perform that well this month, I was impressed with Real Madrid when they won the Copa del Rey and the Champions League. Weeman got his Napoli team the Coppa Italia and Champions League football next season, but just loses out here.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Update 108[/FONT][/B]
[B][FONT=Verdana]Years: 9, Months: 108, Days: 3280[/FONT][/B]

[FONT=Verdana]What does a 60 to One manager do in his time off? Not a lot, as was seen this month. In fact, the only one of our managers to do anything football-related this month was [B]Ben Taylor[/B], who sold 18-year-old striker Antonio Palombo to Inter for £1.3M.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]So instead we’ll focus on international football. Five more teams qualified this month for the 2018 World Cup in Spain. In Asia, Iran beat Vietnam 4-0, beat South Korea 2-1 and beat Oman 2-1 to book their place in the Finals, while South Korea topped their group by beating Japan 2-1 and Vietnam 3-0, despite that loss to the Iranians. In Australia’s group, and looking to join the Socceroos in Spain next year, Saudi Arabia beat China 3-1, beat Bahrain 3-0 and drew 2-2 with the Australians. Japan and China will play off, and the winner will face New Zealand in order to qualify.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]In South America, Brazil won 3-0 in Venezuela this month, before beating Argentina 2-0 at home. This booked Muricy Ramalho’s team their place in the Finals, and Argentina also qualified, by virtue of a 4-2 victory over Peru. Chile and Uruguay also occupy the qualification spots, with Paraguay sitting in the Playoff place. Colombia, Ecuador and Peru are all also in with a shout of qualifying. In North America, no team has yet made sure of their ticket to Spain, but Mexico the final group halfway through the qualifying process. The United States and Trinidad and Tobago also sit in qualifying positions, with Canada occupying the Playoff place.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]In Europe, we don’t have any qualifiers yet but we did have two games this month. Stuart Pearce’s England romped to a 1-0 win in the Faroe Islands, before doing slightly better, if such a thing were possible, by winning 3-0 in Skopje thanks to a Theo Walcott hattrick. Northern Ireland beat Iceland 3-0, before grabbing a legendary 1-0 win in Paris. Their neighbours the Republic of Ireland also won their second match 1-0, in Liechtenstein, but they lost their first, 1-3 away to [B]Saul Goode[/B]’s Wales. Wales went on to lose 1-2 to the Czech Republic. The Welsh took the lead in the 9th minute but saw it slip away the game reached its finish. Scotland beat Moldova 4-1 at home before beating Armenia 2-0 in Yerevan. The biggest win came for the Netherlands, who beat Latvia 9-0 in Rotterdam, in a match that saw two penalties in two minutes, although the Dutch were already 7-0 up at that point. 30-year-old Ryan Babel, who plies his trade for Tottenham, got a hattrick and the man of the match award for his 10.0 rating. Meanwhile, Andorra, Luxembourg, the Faroe Islands, FYR Macedonia and Azerbaijan were all eliminated from qualifying, while Estonia, Cyprus, Kazakhstan and Belarus would have to rely on a playoff.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]In the Premier League, Arsenal aren’t tipped to retain the title for the fifth year, but [B]Lawrence Lazewski[/B]’s Man City are the favourites, although I’m sure that City optimism will evaporate as soon as the Gunners start romping away to victory, some time in October. [B]Leo Dodge[/B]’s Tottenham are predicted to finish 5th, and that might not be such a bad prediction, after the incredible choke they suffered last season. Fortunately for [B]James Ridley[/B], his Crystal Palace side are believed to be capable of avoiding the drop: Leicester, Wigan and [B]Neilio[/B]’s Ipswich are the sides that bookmakers things will go down. West Ham are the favourites for the Championship, with Stoke expected to follow them up. I can’t seem to find any record of West Ham being entered into the Europa League for being last year’s FA Cup Runner-Up, although I’m not sure if that will change.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]In Italy, [B]Cool Manager[/B]’s Inter are expected to finish second behind their rivals A.C. for the second year running. Napoli, Udinese and Fiorentina are all expected to finish in the same positions they did last year: 3rd, 4th and 8th respectively. [B]Theo Stigarakis[/B]’s Empoli, Frosinone and Rimini are all expected to go down. Reggina are believed to be capable of recovering their top flight status; they are favourites for Serie B.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]World Cup Qualfiying wasn’t the only international competition taking place in June. This month also saw the European u21 Championship, hosted in Poland. England qualified top out of a group of France, Ukraine and Poland, beating France 3-1, Poland 2-0 and Ukraine 1-0. They then prevailed in their Semi Final against Spain thanks to Lee Taylor’s goal in the 109th minute being the only one in the match. Taylor, in fact, plays in France for Le Mans, although he was born in Ipswich and came through the Tractor Boys’ youth setup. The English face a Final against France, who beat the Netherlands 1-0 in the other Semi Final. But the u21 Championships isn’t all! The Confederations Cup took place in Spain, where the hosts prevailed in their group, ahead of Mexico, Germany and China, who finished 2nd, 3rd and 4th respectively. England lost 0-2 to Argentina, beat New Zealand 2-1 and drew 2-2 with the Ivory Coast, and finished 3rd in their group. Spain beat the Ivory Coast 2-0 in the Semi Final while Argentina achieved the same scoreline against Mexico. Argentina and Spain will therefore contest the Final, probably at the Nou Camp.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]So, the managers have had their month off. Now back to work! And there’s a new job for Sol Campbell, who was unveiled as the Watford boss this month. Sacked from Charlton last year, he’ll be looking forward to another chance to manage in London.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Manager of the Update[/FONT][/B]
[FONT=Verdana]Well, I’m going to be boring here and give this award to;[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Ben Taylor[/FONT][/B][FONT=Verdana], Fiorentina[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]for being the only manager, to my knowledge, to have moved this month. He made £1.3M selling a player to Inter, so gets this award.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Update 109[/FONT][/B]
[B][FONT=Verdana]Years: 9, Months: 109, Days: 3311[/FONT][/B]

[FONT=Verdana]July has passed and the new season is impending. There were a hatful of transfers, which is a nice generic term to use for transfers as it gives no real size of the amount of transfers, unless you know how big the hat is.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]It is logical that we start with some transfers, so we’ll first look at those that took place in England this month. [B]Leo Dodge[/B] made the biggest buy of our two managers there, but that was only £1.2M for Racing’s 33-year-old goalkeeper Falcón. Arsenal’s purchase this month cost them £900k; 22-year-old goalkeeper Martin Watson from Man United. And you know that Paraguayan goalkeeper I was talking about several times, César Ruiz Díaz? He joined his seventh club in three years by signing for Arsenal on £13,250p/w. Tottenham made two outgoing transfers; 17-year-old leftback Charlie Fagan joined Wolves for £300k and Michael Kightly joined Atlético Madrid for £2.8M. Most of the transfer action in England seemed to orientate around Man City or Middlesbrough, and there were quite a few sales out to Spanish clubs. City sold Emirati midfielder Saleh Al-Sharji, Steven Defour, Chinedu Obasi and Alfonso Blanco for a combined total of £48.75M. Other than the Al-Sharji transfer, the biggest transfer was the £16.5M sale of Gavin Brown from Newcastle to Chelsea. There, he joins fellow Scottish striker John Fleck.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]There was also early European football this month. The first English, Spanish and Italian sides entered the Europa League in the Third Qualifying Round, where [B]Ben Taylor[/B]’s Fiorentina won their first leg 2-0 in Elbasan, Albania, against KS Elbasani. Villarreal won 1-0 at NAC Breda and [B]Tim Aubel[/B]’s Portsmouth won 4-0 at Trnava of Slovakia. Tottenham enter in the next round, while the first of our Champions League teams, Udinese and Barcelona, enter that in the Best Placed Third Qualifying Round in mid- to late-August.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Back to transfers, and over to Italy now. [B]Lord Weeman[/B]’s Napoli bought Albin Ekdal from Chelsea for £11.75M this month, while Weeman also sent two players from the club to new homes. Lars Bender left for Palermo for £11M, and the Ekdal money was recouped with the £1.5M sale of Victor Moses to Blackburn. [B]Tyler Burrows[/B] did a couple of little things, buying half of Frosinone’s talented 16-year-old striker Fabio Manzini for £1.3M, and selling Alessandro Tuia to Ascoli for £100k less. The biggest transfer of the month I’ll cover in the Spanish report, but other than that, [B]Cool Manager[/B] brought Matías Fernández to the San Siro from Zaragoza for £15.5M. Also, Brazilian Willian went from A.C. Milan to Lazio for £12.75M. Another transfer this month was made by Sampdoria, who brought in Crystal Palace boss [B]James Ridley[/B] to be their new manager. This was after Jürgen Klinsmann left the Bayern Munich post vacant by going to Germany. Sampdoria’s Pavel Nedved took the role, so the club bought Ridley for £975k. The 45-year-old does have experience of managing in Italy thanks to his 843-day spell at Siena, and one of his first acts is attempting to sign Steven Gerrard, eight years Ridley’s junior, after the Englishman was released from Liverpool by [B]Mikey Twigge[/B]. Crystal Palace hired Valladolid’s Luis Enrique as a replacement.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]I left you last month talking about two international finals. England won the Final of the u21 European Championship, with a 27th minute goal from Falkirk’s Josh Peake. Two other youth tournaments took place exclusively in July. The u20 World Cup took place in Nigeria, featuring 24 teams. 16 of these teams qualify from the Group Stage for the Last 16, where England beat the Netherlands 1-0, Japan beat Cape Verde 2-1, the United States beat Iran 2-0, Spain beat Turkey 2-0, South Korea beat Brazil on penalties, Uruguay beat Paraguay 3-2, Argentina beat Nigeria 1-0 and Mexico beat Croatia on penalties. In the Quarter Finals, England beat Japan 1-0, while Spain beat the United States 3-1, Uruguay beat South Korea 3-2 and Mexico beat Argentina 1-0. England then beat Spain 2-0 in their Semi Final, while Mexico also reached the Final by beating Uruguay 4-1. Mexico won the Final 1-0, while Spain beat Uruguay 2-0 to claim 3rd place. Eight teams took part in the u19 European Championship; Italy and Greece qualified from a group that also included Croatia and Portugal, and the Netherlands and England qualified ahead of Turkey and Slovakia. After their match with Italy ended 2-2, England proceeded to the Final on penalties (how bizarre), while a brace from Angelos Athanasiou sent Greece into the Final 2-0 over the Netherlands. England beat Greece 2-1 in the Final despite another Athanasiou goal. In senior fooball, Spain won the Confederations Cup with a 2-1 victory over Argentina. Mexico beat the Ivory Coast 3-1 to claim 3rd place.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]In Spain, [B]Ben Cee[/B]’s Valencia are expected to retain the La Liga title. That will be despite a fierce challenge from Real Madrid and Barcelona, who are tipped to finish 2nd and 3rd respectively. Hércules, Valladolid and Murcia are expected to be left contemplating LIGA adelante football next season. In transfers, Barcelona made a couple of moves this month while [B]Lucas Volman[/B]’sReal Madrid made two sales. Barça brought in Man City’s Saleh Al-Sharji for £20M and their Alfonso Blanco for £3.5M. Real Madrid sold 30-year-old John Obi Mikel to A.C. Milan for £20M, and 34-year-old Álvaro Arbeloa to Elche for £475k. At Alavés, [B]Fréderico Canvey [/B]was busy, selling six of his Basque players for a combined sum of £6.25M, and bringing in five players for £550k in total. The most exciting prospect is 19-year-old defensive midfielder Kepa Arroyo, who is excellent at tackling or taking set pieces. Alavés are predicted to finish 4th in Spain’s second tier, which would not give them promotion to the top flight. Espanyol are favourites to win the division.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]So, not much time remains now before the new season kicks off. Could this be the season when seven become six or maybe even five? Tottenham ended last season with a disappointing choke, Barcelona only just achieved Champions League football and ended their spree of reaching the Final each year, and Fiorentina had an abominable penultimate month last season. Maybe even friendly Udinese, who are not without their blips each season, could lose patience with their manager.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Manager of the Update[/FONT][/B]
[FONT=Verdana]Some good fundraising this month leads me to give this award to;[/FONT]

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

[FONT=Verdana]He spun up a £20.5M profit this month from two sales, both of ageing players. Volman did well to achieve £20M out of John Obi Mikel, who joined A.C. Milan. [B]Lord Weeman [/B]also made a transfer profit, and [B]Ben Taylor [/B]won his first competitive game of the season.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Update 110[/FONT][/B]
[B][FONT=Verdana]Years: 9, Months: 110, Days: 3342[/FONT][/B]

[FONT=Verdana]Okay, folkies, let’s get this season under way. Season number ten in 60 to One, and it all started with some exhibition matches to determine which team was better…last season’s league winner or last season’s cup winner.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]The first of these was the English Community Shield, where [B]Tom Smith[/B]’s Arsenal took on Pim Verbeek’s Chelsea at Wembley. Arsenal dominated the match, refereed by Howard Webb, but it took them a long time to make the breakthrough. In the end, Emmanuel Adebayor’s 89th minute goal was the only one in the match. The Italian Super Cup was also won 1-0, and [B]Lord Weeman[/B]’s Napoli were unfortunate as they fell to A.C. Milan. In Spain, [B]Ben Cee[/B]’s Valencia won the competition, losing 0-1 in the away leg to Real Madrid, but triumphing 2-0 at home to recover the trophy after nine years. There is also a European Super Cup to settle, and that will be done next month.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]August also saw the end of the transfer window, and all the feeding frenzy that results from that. The biggest transfer of the month was that of Ivorian midfielder and striker Salomon Kalou, who went from Newcastle to Chelsea for £19M. Meanwhile, [B]Tom Smith [/B]strengthened his Arsenal squad with the £13M signing of Fernando Gago from Real Madrid. [B]Lord Weeman [/B]added Thiago Alcântara to his repertoire at Napoli, signing the 26-year-old from Racing for £7.75M. Meanwhile, [B]Haowan Madridstas [/B]let Kaká leave Barcelona to join Lyon, for the princely sum of £2M. The Brazilian is one cap short of his 100th, so he may reach that next month in Brazil’s game against Peru, if he comes off the substitutes’ bench.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Time to get down to business then. Unfortunately, the only “business” this month took place in England, so that is the only place where I can do a league report. Ian Holloway’s Leeds lead the league (try saying that many times really quickly), level on points with Liverpool, after two games. [B]Tom Smith[/B]’s Arsenal are slightly further back in fifth; they won one and drew one of their two games, and [B]Leo Dodge[/B]’s Tottenham are in 14th. The Gunners started with a 1-0 win at home to Middlesbrough before drawing 1-1 at the City of Manchester Stadium. Tottenham drew 1-1 at Old Trafford before drawing goalless at home to Everton. Pre-season title favourites Man City are in 17th place; in addition to drawing with Arsenal, they lost 0-1 at Villa Park. Stoke, West Ham, Nottingham Forest and the two teams from Sheffield lead the Championship on seven points from nine, although the Hammers didn’t get their Europa League entry; it seems it went to the league. Let’s just say they didn’t apply for a Pro License at the start of the season.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]So we had two sides entering into the Qualifying Stages of the Champions League. [B]Haowan Madridstas[/B]’s Barcelona beat Bayer Leverkusen 2-1 at home, but went through with a 3-3 draw in Germany. [B]Tyler Burrows[/B]’s Udinese were unlucky enough to draw Chelsea. They drew 1-1 at home, but lost 0-2 at Stamford Bridge, meaning they will have to enter the Europa League this season. Other sides to make it through this preliminary stage were Benfica, Bordeaux, Spartak Moscow, Red Star Belgrade, CFR Cluj, Basel, Standard Liège and MSK Zilina. That leaves us with four teams in the group stages; Barcelona are drawn alongside FC Groningen, Zenit St. Petersburg and Bayern Munich, Real Madrid are alongside Spartak Moscow, Inter and Basel, and Napoli and Arsenal are in the same group, with Bordeaux and Standard Liège. Meanwhile, two of our managers will clash, with [B]dafuge[/B]’s Besiktas and [B]Lawrence Lazewski[/B]’s Man City meeting. They’ll be vying for points, as will their groupmates Celtic and Red Star Belgrade.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]The Europa League groups tage draw has not yet been made, but there were qualifying games of interest this month. Fiorentina came through the Third Qualifying Round by beating Elbasani 7-0, for a 9-0 win in total. Portsmouth and Villarreal also won, as did Olympiakos. Additional sides joined in the Fourth Qualifying Round, but I’ll cover all the English, Italian and Spanish sides. [B]Martin Bojangles[/B]’s Aston Villa welcomed Beitar Jersualem to Villa Park, and then won 5-0. They won the away leg in Israel 4-0. [B]Ben Taylor[/B]’sFiorentina hosted Levski Sofia, winning the first leg 8-0 and drawing the second 2-2. Juventus hosted Slovan Bratislava, winning 7-0 in Italy and 5-0 in Slovakia. Portsmouth also won 7-0 at home, against Suduva of Lithuania, and [B]Tim Aubel[/B]’s side finished it off with a 6-1 win away. Roma won 5-0 at home against Dinamo Moscow, and lost 2-3 away, but proceeded 7-3. [B]Leo Dodge[/B]’s Tottenham faced Honka, beating the Finns 4-0 at White Hart Lane and 3-0 in Finland. All three Spanish sides started away; Villarreal drew 0-0 in Tbilisi against Dinamo, but beat the Georgians 4-0 in Spain. Atlético Madrid beat Hearts 4-0 in Scotland and 4-0 at home, while Racing did exactly the same thing to Nice.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]So there’s plenty to look forward to. Next month sees four Premier League games, five Serie A games, four La Liga games, the Carling Cup, European football, plus the chance for Europe to get its first side other than Spain qualified for the 2018 World Cup. At the moment, it’s looking likely that Iberian neighbours Portugal will get that honour. Roll on season 2017-18![/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Manager of the Update[/FONT][/B]
[FONT=Verdana]It’s difficult to give this one, as all our sides either haven’t started the season or have had stuttery starts.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Ben Taylor[/FONT][/B][FONT=Verdana], Fiorentina[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]wins it for me with some good work in the Europa League. He beat one team 7-0 this month and one 8-0. [B]Tom Smith[/B] was also under consideration, given how he won the Community Shield, and [B]Leo Dodge [/B]cruised through his Europa League qualifying, but both made average starts to the league season, while Taylor hasn’t had his chance to shine yet in 2017-18.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Update 111[/FONT][/B]
[B][FONT=Verdana]Years: 9, Months: 111, Days: 3372[/FONT][/B]

[FONT=Verdana]So, the season is under way for real now. Let’s take a look at how our managers, and some selected others, did in September.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Leeds still lead the English Premier League (and the rain in Spain still falls mostly on the plain), with Chelsea trailing them in second place. The defending champions, [B]Tom Smith[/B]’s Arsenal, sit marooned way back in 12th place. This month, the Gunners beat Liverpool and drew with Newcastle, but lost 0-3 at Stamford Bridge and 0-2 at home to Ian Holloway’s table-toppers. They did beat Huddersfield 1-0 away in the Carling Cup 3rd Round, but one more defeat and they will be level with the amount they accrued during the entirety of last season. Their North London rivals Tottenham are doing much better, sitting in 3rd place. Spurs started the month with a creditable 0-0 draw at Craven Cottage, before winning their next three games, 4-2 at home to Blackburn, 2-1 away to Hull and 3-1 at home to Leicester. Blackburn were also their Carling Cup opponents, and this time Spurs went one better, or Blackburn went one worse, with the final scoreline being 4-1. The Fourth Round sees Spurs travel to Goodison Park, while Arsenal will travel to face [B]Neppo Monster[/B]’s Coventry. The tie of the round is Liverpool versus Chelsea at Anfield. Holders Portsmouth are already out, losing 0-1 at home to Newcastle in Round 3.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Spain veritably kicked off their season this month, and Valencia are the early table leaders. Real Madrid aren’t faring too badly after five games; they sit 4th, but Barcelona are floundering early on, in 12th place. [B]Lucas Volman[/B]’s Real opened with two home draws, against Real Sociedad and Zaragoza. They beat Sevilla and Tenerife, forming the bread in a sandwich whose filling was a draw with Elche. But the 57-year-old Italian also won the UEFA Super Cup this month, beating Lazio 1-0 in Monaco after extra time. [B]Haowan Madridstas[/B]’s Barça opened with a 2-0 home win over Recreativo, although a home match against Elche ended in the visitors winning 2-1. The Catalonians then drew away to Tenerife before losing 2-3 away to Valencia. A home match versus Málaga gives them a chance to get back on track next month.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]So European football rolled into action this month. We’ll start with the little sister, the Europa League. [B]Tyler Burrows[/B]’s Udinese were drawn into a group with Portsmouth, Anderlecht and Aris. Their first match was at home to Portsmouth, and they won 2-1. Meanwhile, their fellow Italians Fiorentina were drawn with Panathanaikos, Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk and FC Hansa Rostock, an easy group if I ever saw one. They won their first match, 5-0 in Germany against Rostock. Finally, Tottenham meet Dortmund, Stade Rennais F.C. and APOEL Nicosia in their group. Their first match was also in Germany, and they won 3-0. In the Champions League, Barcelona won their first game, beating last year’s finalists Bayern Munich 3-0 at home. Man City also won 3-0, at home to [B]dafuge[/B]’s Besiktas, while holders Real Madrid lost 1-3 away to [B]Cool Manager[/B]’s Inter. Arsenal and Napoli met in Italy, and [B]Tom Smith[/B]’s side won by a single goal scored by Henri Saivet in the 25th minute.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]As for Napoli’s league campaign, it hasn’t started too well. They opened with a draw at home to Udinese; not too bad a result considering [B]Tyler Burrows[/B]’s team now top the league, before beating Frosinone 3-1 away. They then drew at home to Mantova, lost away to Parma, and drew goalless against both Palermo and Roma. Udinese, of course, are having a much better time, although their month wasn’t perfect. Goalless draws came at both Napoli and Lazio, although all other games were won: at home to Empoli, away to Siena, at home to Fiorentina and away to Sampdoria. [B]Ben Taylor[/B]’s Fiorentina side only lost the one game in September, although they sit 9th. They beat Frosinone and Torino, and drew with Sampdoria.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Mexico, the United States and Uruguay joined this month the list of nations who will compete in next year’s World Cup. Uruguay beat Bolivia (against whom Kaká did indeed get his 100th cap) and Colombia to book their place. Meanwhile, Chile picked up one point from the available six but still are guaranteed to finish in the playoff or higher. Paraguay currently occupy that position, and Colombia are the only other team in with a shout of qualifying. In North America, the United States beat Canada 4-0 and Guatemala 5-1, while Mexico beat Trinidad and Tobago 4-0 and Costa Rica 1-0.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]And over in Europe, we do not yet have any teams in the Finals. As for the home nations this month, Stuart Pearce’s England lost 0-1 in Switzerland before beating Lithuania 3-0 at Wembley. They currently sit second in their group behind Ukraine, one point ahead of the Swiss. Scotland drew 2-2 at home to Slovenia, before beating Bosnia & Herzegovina 4-0 in Sarajevo. George Burley’s team lead their group, staving off the challenge of Turkey on goal difference. Northern Ireland drew 2-2 in Greece, before drawing 1-1 at home to Montenegro. Unfortunately for them, since France won both their games, they are currently second in their group. And finally, Wales and the Republic of Ireland share the same group, and the Irish beat Poland 2-0 in Dublin while the Welsh were losing 0-1 in Kazakhstan. Then the Irish welcomed Kazakhstan to Dublin and won 2-0, although [B]Saul Goode[/B]’s Welsh team also won 2-0, away to Liechtenstein. They are both left trailing in the wake of the Czech Republic, and it looks probable that they will have to compete for the playoff place against each other. The biggest wins of the round were Italy’s 6-0 victory over Bulgaria, and Ukraine’s 6-0 win over FYR Macedonia.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Next month brings four Premier League games, four Serie A games, four La Liga games, some Copa del Rey games, two Champions League games, two Europa League games and two World Cup Qualifying games. You won’t want to miss it![/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Manager of the Update[/FONT][/B]
[FONT=Verdana]This month’s award goes to;[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Leo Dodge[/FONT][/B][FONT=Verdana], Tottenham[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]at the expense of [B]Tyler Burrows[/B]. Dodge guided his team to some nice wins in the Premier League, as well as victories in the Carling Cup and the Europa League. Burrows, meanwhile, took his team to the top of Serie with some strong league performances, and won in the Europa League. Dodge just edges this by virtue of the fact he got three wins from four games; Burrows got four from six.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Update 112[/FONT][/B]
[B][FONT=Verdana]Years: 9, Months: 112, Days: 3403[/FONT][/B]

[FONT=Verdana]We’ll start October’s update in Spain, where Valencia lead La Liga. They have lost just one game in their campaign so far, at home to third-placed Getafe. [B]Haowan Madridstas[/B]’s Barcelona are fourth, and this month they won all four of their matches, including a 3-0 victory away to Betis. They also competed in the Copa del Rey, winning the first leg of their Fourth Round tie 6-1 away to Badalona. Real Madrid, meanwhile, won two out of three this month and sit 5th. They beat Recreativo and Sporting but were held goalless at Málaga.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Chelsea, who have enjoyed a return to some success in recent years under Pim Verbeek’s management, currently top the Premier League, with high-fliers Leeds dropping down to 6th and now without a manager. Portsmouth are in 16th place, and after [/FONT][FONT=Verdana]a 0-3 defeat at the Emirates at the end of the month, the board decided to dispense with the services of [B]Tim Aubel[/B], and hire Leeds’ Ian Holloway instead. Aubel was just 10 days short of his 1705-day spell at Fulham. In other English club news, [/FONT] [FONT=Verdana]Guðjón Þórðarson left League 1 Charlton this month to take up a job with the Iceland national team. As for our clubs, [B]Tom Smith[/B]’s Arsenal are currently 5th in the Premier League, just three points behind the Pensioners at the top. As well as that Portsmouth victory, they beat Sunderland and Man United this month, the latter 5-0, yet were held 1-1 at the DW Stadium. Still, it is a marked improvement from last month. [B]Leo Dodge[/B]’s Tottenham are 10th; they lost their first match this month, 0-2 at the City of Manchester Stadium. They also drew away to both Ipswich and Aston Villa.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Of course there was more European football this month. In the Champions League, Real Madrid beat Spartak Moscow 4-0 at home before winning 1-0 in Basel. Arsenal beat Bordeaux 3-0 in London, and matched that score in Liège against Standard, in a ground where Napoli had drawn 2-2 in their last game. [B]Lord Weeman[/B]’s side got another draw in France against Bordeaux. Barcelona drew 2-2 away to FC Groningen, but beat Zenit St. Petersburg 7-0 at home thanks to four goals from Lionel Messi. In the Europa League, Udinese won 3-0 at Anderlecht before winning 2-1 away to Aris Thessaloniki. Fiorentina also played a Greek side, beating Panathanaikos 2-0 at home, before drawing 1-1 in Ukraine against Dnipro. [B]Leo Dodge[/B]’s Tottenham beat Stade Rennais 4-2 at home, before winning 4-0 in Cyprus against APOEL Nicosia.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Many, many more sides qualified for next year’s World Cup this month, so we’ll go through the continents in turn. Europe has now finished its qualification process but for the playoffs, and this month, England beat Ukraine 3-1 before beating the Faroe Islands 7-0, both at Wembley. This sealed their qualification for the tournament, finishing in 1st place in their group. Scotland won 2-0 in Moldova, before beating challengers Turkey 2-1 at home. This meant they too entered the World Cup automatically, with Turkey having to go through the playoff. Northern Ireland beat San Marino 5-0, but lost 1-3 away to Guðjón Þórðarson’s Iceland (Þórðarson had been in charge for two days). This meant that France raced away to qualification, and though Northern Ireland finished 2nd, they did not rank in the top eight second-placed teams. In the group containing Wales and the Republic of Ireland, the crunch match between the two came this month, in Dublin. [B]Saul Goode[/B]’s side won that 3-2, and they went on to beat Poland 2-1 while Ireland lost by that scoreline in the Czech Republic. This did of course mean that the Czechs qualified first but that Wales would get their opportunity in the Playoffs. In the other groups, Norway pipped the Netherlands to first place in Group 1, Italy qualified ahead of Denmark by virtue of their superior goal difference, thanks to wins such as the 12-0 one over Luxembourg in the final match. Belgium qualified from Group 5, leaving Croatia in the Playoffs and Russia out entirely, Germany won Group 8, where Romania make the Playoffs, and Portugal finished 1st ahead of Israel thanks to a better goal difference. The playoff sees the Netherlands against Ukraine, Turkey against Israel in what has already been described as a ‘West Middle East thriller’, Romania against Croatia and Denmark against Wales.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Paraguay grabbed that last qualification place in South America, and Chile finished in the Playoff place. Their opponents will be Guatemala, after Costa Rica finished in the qualification spots and Canada fell away. I’ll be in the Guatemala camp, hoping they can compete in their first ever World Cup. Meanwhile, Japan drew 2-2 in China before beating the Chinese 3-1 at home, so it is they that get to proceed to face New Zealand in the playoff. And in Africa, Ghana qualified ahead of Senegal, Algeria and Benin, Egypt qualified ahead of Guinea, Angola and Namibia, Nigeria qualified ahead of DR Congo, Morocco and Libya, the Ivory Coast qualified ahead of Tunisia, Mali and Zimbabwe, and Cameroon qualified ahead of Togo, Gabon and the Republic of the Congo.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Logically, we’ll conclude in Italy, where Inter now lead Serie A. [B]Tyler Burrows[/B]’s Udinese have now dropped to fourth, but they are doing a good deal better than our other Italian teams. This month, the Andorran guided his team to draws away to A.C. Milan and at home to Brescia, and beat Torino 3-0 at home. [B]Lord Weeman[/B]’s Napoli are eleventh, having lost one and won two this month, including a 1-0 victory over [B]Mikael Schøler[/B]’s Juventus, and Fiorentina are twelfth, winning once, drawing once and losing three times this month. They suffered bad defeats away to A.C. Milan and Palermo, and an unfortunate 0-1 loss at home to Roma. Meanwhile, the draw for the Coppa Italia First Round, which takes place in a couple of months’ time, was announced. Napoli host Brescia, Udinese host Palermo and Fiorentina host Atalanta.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]So one of our former managers left their new job this month, and one of our current managers could easily leave theirs. It’s clear that none of them are living up to the high standards they have set themselves, at the moment, and it could be a sad, sad tale if things don’t start to improve. I don’t wish to fearmonger, but RUN! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES![/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Manager of the Update[/FONT][/B]
[FONT=Verdana]This month’s award is now officially the property of;[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Haowan Madridstas[/FONT][/B][FONT=Verdana], Barcelona[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]after he won it fair and square. Although there was a blip with a draw in the Champions League, an impressive 7-0 victory over Zenit St. Petersburg and a 6-1 win over Badalona, as well as twelve points from twelve in the league give him this award. [B]Tom Smith [/B]was the one to miss out, after he got ten points from twelve in the league and won both Champions League games 3-0.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Update 113[/FONT][/B]
[B][FONT=Verdana]Years: 9, Months: 113, Days: 3433[/FONT][/B]

[FONT=Verdana]So, we’re into December and some of our managers are teetering on the edge of a sacking. They’re not gone yet, but could go in the coming month. But before we come to that, let’s take a look at their performances in December, starting with the English Premier League.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Said Premier League has a very unusual leader…Hull. Alan Irvine’s team have picked up 29 points from 14 games so far, two more than chasers Chelsea, although the Pensioners have played one game fewer. The defending champions, meanwhile, are back in 3rd place, and while Hull’s challenge is likely to be ephemeral, [B]Tom Smith[/B]’s Arsenal will need to fight off Chelsea if they intend on winning the Premier League again. Smith isn’t one of our managers in trouble, and he probably wouldn’t be even if he didn’t have a large salary protecting him, but it’s the glory he’s after, and he won’t get that with a 3rd placed finish after so many title wins. In November, the Gunners could only win two of their four league games, against Fulham and Blackburn. Smith also received criticism from fans when his trip to the Ricoh Arena to face [B]Neppo Monster[/B]’s Coventry in the Carling Cup Fourth Round ended only in a 2-0 win. He faces Fulham in the next round, against whom he has a strong record, so is looking forward to a Semi Final place.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Meanwhile, Arsenal’s North London rivals Tottenham are down in 9th place. Their manager, [B]Leo Dodge[/B], is on our endangered species list, although he has had a good month this month. It started with a 2-1 win over visiting Arsenal, one of those two failures to win this month (the other was a draw). Draws came against Liverpool and Leeds, a defeat came against Chelsea and a 3-0 victory came over bottom-placed Crystal Palace. A 2-2 draw at Goodison Park in the Carling Cup saw them out on penalties in the Fourth Round. Liverpool won that big match, 3-1 against Chelsea, and they will face Aston Villa away in the next round. Other ties are Sunderland versus Everton and Crystal Palace versus West Ham. In other English news, Leeds appointed a replacement manager, becoming [B]Brettney Joven[/B]’s third club. [B]Bryan McGuinness[/B], who had developed a reputation of long stays at clubs, was sacked by Man United after less than a year in charge. The Red Devils now have Mike Phelan in charge as a Caretaker.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Over in Italy, there isn’t such a bizarre league leader. [B]Cool Manager[/B]’s Inter are top, level on points with Juventus, and they have already opened up a six point lead over the holders and their rivals, A.C. Milan. As for our teams, they are all doing rather badly, although not all three managers are on the danger list. We’ll move in descending order, and so start with Udinese, who are 8th. [B]Tyler Burrows[/B], who bought another Ilfedons Lima calendar for this Christmas, was unable to win a game in November. Two points were garnered against Frosinone and Mantova, but the team lost 2-3 away to Palermo. Burrows should be okay, although this was a month where he will have surely targeted nine points, or seven at least. Two places lower down are [B]Lord Weeman[/B]’s Napoli. His job is in danger, although he was unbeaten in November. Atalanta were beaten 1-0, Rimini 3-0, although Brescia held them goalless. Not a bad month, but not one considered good for a team chasing a Champions League spot. And in 12th place are [B]Ben Taylor[/B]’s Fiorentina. They drew two games this month, against Genoa and Inter, and lost the third 1-2 to Juventus.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]So we saw two more Champions League games this month, and as such, most of the qualification places are sorted. Barcelona won 4-3 in Russia against Zenit St. Petersburg, before losing 1-4 in Germany to Bayern Munich. They have qualified, although their next game will determine whether it is in first place. In Group G, Real Madrid haven’t yet qualified. They drew both games 1-1 this month, at home to both Basel and Inter, and if they lose away to Spartak Moscow, their defence of the tournament will end. In Group H, Arsenal won both games, 4-1 over Standard Liège and 2-1 over Napoli, both at home, while Napoli also drew 1-1 at home to Bordeaux. This puts Arsenal and Bordeaux into the next round, with Napoli hosting Standard in order to grab the Europa League place. Just one game was played in the Europa League this month. Udinese lost 0-2 at Fratton Park, Tottenham beat Dortmund 3-0 at home, and have qualified for the next round, and Fiorentina beat Rostock 5-1 at home.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Atlético Madrid lead La Liga, with their rivals Real Madrid six points further back in 3rd. This month, [B]Lucas Volman[/B]’s side won two and lost one, with the loss coming away to the league leaders, although one of the wins came at home to second-placed Valencia. Real also completed a 10-1 aggregate cup win with a 6-0 home victory over Real Unión. Barcelona are in fifth place, and they won one and lost two this month, with Atlético Madrid and Hércules being the teams to conquer them. However, they did beat Badalona 8-0 at home to record a 14-1 aggregate victory in the Copa del Rey.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]So, there were a few final World Cup places to be decided. In Europe, Denmark beat [B]Saul Goode[/B]’s Wales 2-1 in Copenhagen, thanks to two goals from Nicklas Bendtner, leaving the Welsh with every opportunity to qualify. The Netherlands beat Ukraine 1-0, Romania beat Croatia 3-1, and Turkey beat Israel 3-0, with all the winning teams being at home. In the second legs, Wales were undone, crashing to a 0-3 defeat in Cardiff. Ukraine drew 1-1, meaning that the Netherlands qualified 2-1 on aggregate. Israel lost 0-1 to Turkey for a 0-4 aggregate defeat, and Croatia’s 2-1 victory was not enough to overcame Romania, who won 4-3. Japan won the Asia/Oceania playoff, beating New Zealand 4-1 away and 2-0 at home. And unsurprisingly, Guatemala lost to Chile in the Americas playoff, being beaten 0-3 at home and 0-2 away. The draw for the Finals gets made next month.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]So, after 650 days, we have some managers teetering on the edge of the brink. Who knows whether or not they will be fired next month? And by the way, [B]Leo Dodge [/B]was definitely Insecure when I started writing this update, but it seems he is now Stable.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Manager of the Update[/FONT][/B]
[FONT=Verdana]This month’s award goes to;[/FONT]

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

[FONT=Verdana]for basically being the best of the worst. Wins in the Champions League and Carling Cup and only one defeat in the league give him this award.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Update 114[/FONT][/B]
[B][FONT=Verdana]Years: 9, Months: 114, Days: 3464[/FONT][/B]

[FONT=Verdana]This month was replete with sackings, and I am bursting with excitement just waiting to tell you all about them. As there were so many managers fired this month, I’ll deal with them in turn, and then talk about the managers still in their jobs. Only one of the managers who went was still in 60 to One, but plenty of our former managers have now left their newly-adopted clubs.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Phil Brown was the first to go, from his post at Bristol City. He was replaced by Lee Clark. The first of our managers to go was [B]Ben Taylor[/B], who was dismissed from his job the day after Brown was from his. After 3442 days of service, the Englishman was removed from his post after he started December with a win over Atalanta but only a draw away to Rimini. He had also beaten Panathanaikos 3-1 in Greece, and so confirmed Europa League progression, but with his side 12th in Serie A, four places below their expected position, Taylor was given his marching orders by the board. Fiorentina appointed Luigi di Canio, who had days earlier been sacked from Atalanta, as their new manager. Atalanta hired Luigi Del Neri.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]The next manager to go was [B]Mikey Twigge[/B]. After putting in a 941-day long shift at Liverpool, with his side 10th in the Premier League and after a humiliating 1-4 defeat away to Aston Villa in the Carling Cup Quarter Final. This was after a 0-1 home loss to Fulham and a 2-2 draw at Ewood Park this month, but the sacking still came out of the blue. Liverpool hired Rafa Benítez, back for his third crack at the job. Next, AlbinoLeffe sacked Daniele Fortunato, replacing him with Elio Gustinetti, and Reggina sacked Walter Mazzari, replacing him with Franco Colomba. Bolton sacked Alan Pardew, opting instead for Phil Brown, and Villarreal sacked Michael Laudrup, replacing him with Athletic’s Jesús Ramírez. That left the Basque club’s manager role vacant, so [B]Theo Stigarakis[/B] took the opportunity to move from Italy to Spain, taking up the role to the £1M benefit of Empoli.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]So those are the sackings. We’ll start the rest of the report in England, where Chelsea lead the Premier League. Liverpool have recuperated to climb to 4th under their new management, which means that [B]Tom Smith[/B]’s Arsenal are 5th. Their month was about average for the position they currently occupy, but bad for a title chaser. They started with a 3-0 victory over then-leaders Hull, followed by a Carling Cup victory at home to Fulham, 1-0. That, however, was succeeded by a 0-2 defeat away to Leicester, although winning ways were found again in the next game, a 3-2 victory over [B]Neilio[/B]’s Ipswich. A draw came away to Crystal Palace, a win at home to Aston Villa, and a draw away to Middlesbrough. [B]Leo Dodge[/B]’s Tottenham are 8th; the manager is currently Stable but got a little too close to the sack for comfort this month. A 0-3 defeat at St James’ Park was fortunately followed by three consecutive victories, including a 4-1 win at Wigan. The month ended with a 1-1 draw at home to Man United, who currently sit 11th.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Atlético Madrid still lead La Liga, and a five point gap has opened between them and second-placed Valencia. Real Madrid are three points further back and Barcelona four points beyond that. This month, [B]Lucas Volman[/B]’s Los Galácticos won three of their four games, being held at home to Hércules, Barcelona’s conquerors. They also started competion in the Club World Cup, beating Enyimba, of the host nation Nigeria, 5-0 in the Semi Final. Bizarrely, they had to travel back for their home game against Villarreal before they play the Final next month. Barcelona, under the management of [B]Haowan Madridstas[/B], won three and lost one this month. They beat Villarreal, Murcia and Valladolid by a combined scoreline of 12-1. But a trip to Zaragoza resulted in a 1-3 defeat.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Inter still lead Serie A, but the best news is Napoli’s climb back up to contention. [B]Lord Weeman[/B]’s side now sit 4th, after winning all four games this month. A narrow 4-3 win away to Empoli was followed by a 5-0 victory at home to Siena, a 4-1 win at Fiorentina and a 2-1 home win over Lazio. They also competed in the Coppa Italia First Round, beating Brescia 3-0. Meanwhile, [B]Tyler Burrows[/B]’s Udinese are 9th, after suffering a poor month. They beat both Palermo and Genoa 1-0, but lost 0-4 away to Inter. They also crashed out of the Coppa Italia, losing 1-2 at home to Palermo. Palermo are to be Napoli’s Quarter Final opponents.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]We’ll conclude the report with updates on teams’ European antics. Barcelona beat FC Groningen 3-0, Arsenal beat Bordeaux 3-0, Napoli beat Standard Liège 3-1. Real Madrid won 3-0 in Moscow against Spartak, so the holders can continue into the next round of the Champions League. Monaco, Zenit St. Petersburg, [B]dafuge[/B]’s Besiktas, Lille, Dinamo Kiev, Salzburg, Spartak Moscow and Napoli all enter the Europa League; CFR Cluj, FC Groningen, Red Star Belgrade, AEK Athens, MSK Zilina, PSV Eindhoven, Basel and Standard Liège all end their European participation. In the Round of 16, [B]Haowan Madridstas[/B] meets [B]Tom Smith[/B] as Barcelona take on Arsenal. And Real Madrid face a potentially tricky tie against Man City. The tie of the round, other than Barcelona versus Arsenal, is A.C. Milan against last year’s finalists Bayern Munich. In the Europa League, two games were played this month. Udinese beat Anderlecht 2-0 and Aris Thessaloniki 3-0, both at home, sealing their qualification for the next round behind Portsmouth. Tottenham won 2-0 in France against Stade Rennais, and 4-0 in England against APOEL Nicosia. Spurs’ Round of 32 opponents will be Champions League dropouts Salzburg, while Udinese face Villarreal and Napoli play Racing. Udinese would then face CSKA Moscow or Lyon, Napoli would face Panathanaikos or Roma, and Tottenham would face AZ Alkmaar or Juventus.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]So we are now down to six. None of our managers are in trouble at the moment, and there’s a good chance we’ll make it through the season without another sacking. But the blood is in the water, and there’s also the chance of a feeding frenzy.[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Manager of the Update[/FONT][/B]
[FONT=Verdana]This month, it has to be;[/FONT]

[B][FONT=Verdana]Lord Weeman[/FONT][/B][FONT=Verdana], Napoli[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]after he won every single game, taking his side to 4th in Serie A in the process. [B]Lucas Volman [/B]wasn’t too far off, being the only other manager not to lose a game, and credit should be given to [B]Leo Dodge [/B]for bouncing back from a heavy defeat to have a successful month.[/FONT]
