They don't look quite that bad, but still relegation candidates.

FA Cup Final

Road to Wembley

Liverpool

liverpoolfixturesfixtur.png

We needed a couple of replays to reach the Final and also got away with a poor performance in the Semi-Final against Chelsea so we're pretty lucky really. We were impressive in the replay against Boro and against Crawley, Wycombe and also the replay against Blackpool who gave us a big test at Bloomfield Road.

Blackburn

Blackburn also needed a replay to get through but they had some impressive displays following the Sheffield Wednesday result. A nice win over Wolves was followed by a fantastic display and result at Old Trafford. The Semi-Final saw them dispatch of West Ham following a fantastic comeback. They were 2-1 down until the final 10 minutes and 2 goals capped off the comeback as they reached the Final.

Summary

We got there in the end but had a slight scare. Chris Ord was injured for the game (and will be out until the Champions League Final). Rob Wilson led the line fantastically well and grabbed himself a brace. We were the better side but Blackburn came into the game the further it went on and in stoppage time hit the post and had a couple of other chances. Still, to lift our second trophy of the season with two more to play for is very impressive.

Congrats for the double of cups, this is setting up to be a quite exciting finale, did very well to go past both Barça and Real so probably deserve to win the Champions League at last, but can't approach a giant like Bayern with complacency.

Cheers :thup:. Im really nervous about the Bayern game actually. We have just got back Chris Ord & one of our main centre halves from injury and also miss our other centre half and a couple of others through injury. Going to be tough.

Just as well it wasn't against you like it was at the weekend.

I dont want to talk about that :(.

Road to the Final

Liverpool

Group Stage

liverpoolfixturesfixturc.png

[europeanchampionscupove.png

A comfortable passage into the knockout phase for us in impressive fashion. We played really well throughout including a fantastic result away to Sporting. Inter gave us two tough games as expected but we deserved 4pts against them and topped the group.

Knockout Phase

liverpoolfixturesfixtur.png

We had an even better knockout phase. I dont think I have ever seen a tougher route to a Final before but hey we did it. We played brilliant over the two legs against Barcelona with a brilliant tactical performance in the Nou Camp before deservidly beating them in Extra Time at Anfield in a dominant display. Against Madrid we just about deserved victory at home and as mentioned I pulled a Rafa Benitez to in a very tactical and disciplined display to go through. The Semi-Final was pretty straight forward as we knocked out Sampdoria to book our place in the Final in Russia.

Road to the Final

Bayern Munich

Group Stage

A pretty comfortable passage through the group stage for Bayern despite a couple of defeats. They deserved to book their place in the knockout phase and were helped by two big wins.

Knockout Phase

fcbayernmnchenfixturesf.png

Well they got to the Final but nearly threw it away...especially against Marseille. Despite a nice win in the first leg they nearly went out against Marseille and probably should have but managed to go through on penalties. They required a bit comeback against PSV before finally putting in an impressive two legs against Inter Milan to book themselves a trip to Russia.

The Final

What an achievement!!! I cant believe how good this makes me feel. In what was a very even game we came out on top on penalties to complete a famous quadruple. Chris Ord, back from injury gave us the lead in the second half and we took charge from them. However, on the counter Bayern drew level and it was them on top for the last 15 minutes but with no change, we went to Extra Time.

In the extra period things were pretty even and Bayern resorted to dirty tactics, kicking lumps out of our players but to no real effect as we both had to settle for penalties. Chris Ord started the scoring for us and they missed their first penalty. Augusto, Marcelo Chafer & Dan Cousin's scored our next three (they scored their next two) and that left Thomas Muller to blaze over to give us our 7th Champions League Trophy overall.

SRL88's Career - May 2024 - Liverpool FC

Premier League

liverpoolfixturesfixtur.png

englishpremierdivisiono.png

A perfect month for us gives us our third league title in four seasons (sorry, I gave it away in the previous post ;)). We dominated procedings against Sunderland to grab a 4-1 win and as expected had a battle on our hands against Stoke but a huuuuuuuuuuge 3-2 win put us in pole position with 2 games to go. Arsenal put up a fight which wasnt helped thanks to injuries we had and after we took a 2-0 lead they injured 2 of our players to leave us with 9 men which is when they scored. Wolves was pretty straight forwardas Fuska scored a hat-trick to crown us PREMIER LEAGUE CHAMPIONS!!!

May 2024 - Continued

FA Cup Final

liverpoolfixturesfixtur.png

A tough battle in the FA Cup Final, but a battle we deserved to win. Without the ever present Chris Ord our task was a little more difficult but we still claimed a big win to claim our 2nd FA Cup trophy under my management.

Champions League Final

liverpoolfixturesfixturt.png

We also claimed the Champions League trophy on penalties much to my delight. I wont cover this, instead....look up.

SRL88's Career - Season Review - 2023/24 - Liverpool FC

Premier League - Results 1 - Results 2 (1st - CHAMPIONS)

Excellent work over the course of the season. We got a bit sloppy going into February/March time and ended up behind Man Utd with 4 games to go (1 being a game in hand). We put a brilliant May together though and ended the season with 4 big, big wins in a row to clinch the league title on the last day against Wolves.

FA Cup (Winners)

We needed a couple of replays and luckily got through the Semi-Final, there is no denying that. We deserved to beat Blackburn though to lift the FA Cup for the 2nd time under my management.

League Cup (Winners)

A pretty straight forward route to Wembley and a comprehensive win over Cardiff in the Final.

Community Shield (Winners)

Following a 1-1 draw in the season opener we beat Man Utd on penalties.

Champions League (Winners)

We topped our group pretty easily in honest, but in the group stage things really picked up. We put in fantastic performances against Barcelona and Real Madrid before beating Sampdoria in the Semi-Final. Against Bayern in the Final we had to rely on penalties following an even game but managed to lift our 5th trophy of the season.

Transfers - Finances

A lot of major transfer activity in terms of personel but overall I was pretty happy with our business. Some really good signings and pleased with the money we brought in.

The finances look pretty healthy and we havent even got the mass amount of money from our sponsorship yet. Really looking good.

Squad

Im really pleased with our squad. There is just one player (Alaba) over 30yo so this squad could be together for a few more years.

My Top 3 Players

Soren Oczipka - Really came into his own the full-back. A fantastic season.

Sergio Diaz - Our leader at the back. Turning into a club legend.

Chris Ord - What else is there really to say about this guy??? Nothing.....so just take a look.

this has been a fantastic read on my first visit to this part of the forum, i have always been a massive fan of starting unemployed and with no reputation in the game, you have shown how it is done perfectly. Shame for me however having to read numerous updates about liverpool winning trophies haha

I will be looking into creating my own version of this and attempt to emulate the success you have

Wow been following this thread the whole way and what an achievement, also your team looks like it might keep the success going for another few seasons as well, Ord is just out of this world and has a few seasons left in him!!

How much further would you like to go on with this Lpool side? Will you leave in the next few seasons? Usually when If I began to dominate I become bored and look elsewhere for a challenge!!

How you get through seasons so quickly is outstanding, do you just leave the commentary on in games you seem to fly through seasons or play quite a lot haha?

Amazing season, I take my hat off to you.

Cheers :).

this has been a fantastic read on my first visit to this part of the forum, i have always been a massive fan of starting unemployed and with no reputation in the game, you have shown how it is done perfectly. Shame for me however having to read numerous updates about liverpool winning trophies haha

Cheers mate. I will let you off for the disrespectful comment regarding Liverpool :p.

I initially set out my target to topple Man Utd's record of 25 titles which is another 4 league titles away but Im not 100% sure if that will happen. I think I will take the side as far as I probably can without over-spending. Definitely another 2-3 seasons in this side and then I will consider moving on. I would like to add another European Cup to the collection to.

Wow, you sure lucked out ;)

Haha. We did, but fully deserved the quadruple. Excellent season!!

Also in reply to this. Sorry I forgot in the previous post. I have the game on key moments and watch it in 2D at the fastest speed. Im actually a pretty slow player I think bu thanks :D.

I like adding that part in as well. I didnt actually do it at first if you look at my time with Darlington, but Snake does it in his career and I liked that so I copied :p.

I've been thinking about it on and off since the start of 'From Blyth to Barcelona', felt that might end up encompassing rather a lot of clubs so didn't apart from rare mentions of a few noteworthy things.

I think that sometimes myself, but it keeps me interested with how my previous clubs are doing.

Been reading everyday SRL88, a bit of lurking for a while! :p You're doing great, glad you got your dream job, so to speak. Have you ever thought about moving abroad again?

Haha. I have noticed that you have been in but never posted *FU* :D ha.

Yeah I want to move abroad. One of my aims is to manage Hoffenheim (not that I havent managed them plenty lately) so I want to go to Germany...but I would also love to crack Spain and Barcelona seems a real possibility because they are constantly sacking their manager and I am always favourite for it.

I would also like to try a different continent to.

I know, I always subscribe to them (and previously, a lot of players as well, though not any more), and might start doing a brief round-up.

Haha, sorry. :lol:

Who many more years are you wanting to stay with Liverpool then? Has the Hoffenheim job ever come up for you? Barce would also be a good job, no Leo Messi now though! :eek:

Im guessing you mean South America then? The other continents don't reall have good teams do they?

I dont think it needs to be anything more than brief if you decide to do it.

Im not sure. As mentioned when I finished my first season with Liverpool....and also when people have asked, I stated that I wanted to overhaul Man Utd's 25 league titles and we're on 22 now. Just depends if I get bored beforehand. At the moment that doesnt look likely probably because of Chris Ord :lol:. If I win the league for the next 3 seasons in a row I will probably stay for a 4th to topple United.

Messi is still at Barca actually....although he is 36 ha. South America would be the most likely destination, but I do have the A-League & MLS loaded and may have a crack at one of them as well.

Hoffenheim have sacked two managers since I have taken charge at Liverpool. They had a good season the last year though, finishing 2nd to Bayern, but by quite some distance.

Ah yea I remember you saying that now, good thing to take it away from United, bad that it'll be Liverpool replacing them! ;) Chris Ord does look like a monster, looks the perfect poacher to me?

Oh wow he is? :o Bet he's pretty ineffectual now though? Would you rather go to Argentina or Brazil if you went to South America? I always thought it would be fun to be Boca, always liked them!

Yeah I play Chris Ord as a poacher. Clinical forward :cool:. I have paid the £55m off that I signed him for so that doesnt doesnt cripple my balance every month. He does however take £200k p/w away and £20k per goal which based on the season just passed is £1.1m just off goals.

He hasnt played much in the last 2-3 seasons but he is still getting around 5-10 games. He was World Player of the Year when he was 32yo. Im not sure about which South American country to be honest. I like quite a few teams in Brazil but their league sounds very complicated.

Just as well it wasn't against you like it was at the weekend.

I've had this weekend erased from my memory, so I don't know what you're on about :D

Excellent season SRL. Clean sweep, just like the good old days :cool:

Wow! I'm hoping I never pay a player more than £125k p/w haha.. (On my current save that is :p) And £20k a goal is an enormus amount you nutjob! :lol:
