7th place and semi finals of the champions league! I think the euro run took it out on my small squad but as tottenham and Man Utd won the two domestic cups I will be in the europa league Qualifying next season. Our expecations were Europa league Qualification so that was achieved, Ideally I would of liked to finished in top 4 again but we are still a small club compared to the 6 who finished above us. Aim next season is to qualify for europe again I would like to win a cup too, Usually i use fringe players but Im going to go for it next season.

Still a nice season overall. Will be good to see if players are more interested in joining with your fabulous run in Europe.

Curious, when did England lose a Champions League spot?

It was this season so that means I dont get any European football next season :(

Im quite happy with what I currently have, I havent noticed any better players wanting to join us as a result of that run, my transfer plans are to invest in youth if i spend much as I have spent quite abit in the last 2 seasons. I think there will be a bit of a cut back this summer, Even though the board have given me £30million transfer budget

A quiet summer really for us all transfers in were future prospects really, and its the least ive spent since joining the club.

Not a brilliant start to the season though :(

It was too big a job to turn down, With the money and Factilies in place theres a chance for me to win the title and champions league, Bristol City i always felt i was overachieveing with and are miles off the stature of Liverpool so I had to take the step

January Transfer Window & Results Update

Plan

After joining the club the playing squad was in an awful position, it was ageing there was no depth, So first thing I did was implemented my formation I had been using at Bristol City, Any player that didn't fit that was transfer listed, any player who was past it or not good enough or lacked potential was also transfer listed, I cleared the decks of the deadwood and unneeded players. this boosted my £121million transfer budget by £95.1million giving me £216million to rebuild the squad. I don't usually like doing a massive overhaul in January but we needed it and I felt if we didn't we wouldn't make Europe next season. Main priority is 2 centre backs, a Right winger a left winger and two strikers.

League Table

Overview

The rebuild is done until the summer, I bought in players who will ensure the quality of the first team improved and a whole range of youth. I'm hopefully the team gel fast. Two strikers were a massive priority and I spent big to bring in Osei (4goals) and Karaman (6goals) in but they have hit off straight away and form a great partnership hopefully they can continue and shoot me into Europe. I'm going all out to win the fa cup playing my strongest team possible. the aim is 3rd place in the league, Its going to be hard but if we can get a god run going we could do it. I feel I have sorted out the short term and set the foundations for the Long term with some quality youth purchases. Also I realise Bristol City are above us so it might not look like the best career move at the moment but i believe long term it will be.

Fa Cup is going according to plan, league is harder and I doubt we will progress in Champions League but its work in progress at the moment, Bristol City just won the Carling Cup though :D

FA Cup Final

Season overview

Well.... Season started great with City, Then I jumped ship to Liverpool, We got to the fa cup final and lost, whilst City won the carling cup, qualified for europe and finished above us in the league, It seems like a bad move at the moment BUT I'm Hoping Next season, League Title, Without any European football I think it may give us the upper hand, and with all the new players having the summer to gel I hope it works otherwise I fear the sack

Its going to be a slow process at Anfield. You still done a solid job and its a step in the right direction.

I Figure next season I need top 3 at least and a cup win, as we are not in Europe will play full strength teams in both cups

If I qualified straight to groups I'd be happy but a 1st round start is not ideal, lots of games
