Andorran Glory - Featuring Jesus

[B][U][SIZE=4]February[/SIZE][/U][/B]

The transfer window closed this month and I can confirm we lost none of our players. We had three cup games this month and a tough league game in between.

[B][U][URL="http://img109.imageshack.us/img109/5169/santacolomabvpenyaencar.png"]Santa Colomo B vs Penya Encarnada (1st Round)[/URL][/U][/B]
An away game against an excellent team meant that a more defensive philosophy was needed. However we dominated the game and won dramatically 3-0. Sadly later on in the game Carrasco got a red card so we had to finish the game with 10 players. Overall a great confidence boost and a superb display by the team. Into the second round of the Andorran Cup :)

[B][U][URL="http://img851.imageshack.us/img851/194/penyaencarnadavjenlaiin.png"]Penya Encarnada vs Jenlai[/URL][/U][/B]
Earlier in the season when we played away to Jenlai we beat them so I expected a comfortable win infront of my own supporters, and that is exactly what I got. A good 2-0 win including [URL="http://img193.imageshack.us/img193/3520/victorgmezyp02overviewp.png"]YP02[/URL] getting a goal and [URL="http://img857.imageshack.us/img857/6219/bielvillalongayp05overv.png"]YP05[/URL] getting the man of the match. Sadly [URL="http://img813.imageshack.us/img813/3811/ngelmonasterioyp04overv.png"]YP04[/URL] got an injury during the game but it was only short term, luckily.

[B][U][URL="http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/4376/ramazanjesusnewsinbox.png"]Andorran Cup 2nd Round Draw[/URL][/U][/B] - I was drawn against Principat (A).

[B][U][URL="http://img220.imageshack.us/img220/3051/penyaencarnadavprincipa.png"]Penya Encarnada vs Principat (2nd Round)[/URL][/U][/B]
We welcomed back Villalgordo for this 2nd round match against Principat's best team (not the B team). It was a dull, boring but very close match that ended 0-0 after normal time, somehow. Principat missed two penalties during the match and should have won 2-0. It took till the 116th minute until the deadlock was broken by my best player Ricardo Ferreira. 1-0 was the final score and I felt we had deserved it. Principat missed chances in normal time to win and payed the price. Sadly we got two long term injuries including my CM meaning [URL="http://img703.imageshack.us/img703/6350/juancarlosboixyp06overv.png"]YP06[/URL] should be starting many more games.

[B][U][URL="http://img837.imageshack.us/img837/5682/escaldesinformationover.png"]Penya Encarnada vs Atletic d'Escaldes (Quarter Finals Leg 1)[/URL][/U][/B]
Going into this game I was confident that I could beat them easily and I did just that. A 4-1 win with YP02 scoring twice and Villalgordo scoring twice meant an easy win and what should be progression to the semi finals, assuming we don't lose by a large number of goals.

An amazing month with 4 wins and great performances. I felt the team finally worked as one and passed the ball much better than in previous months. Hopefully with new talents being introduced next month, it will only get better.

[B][U][SIZE=4]Youth Candidates[/SIZE][/U][/B]

The time has come to see who has come through our rubbish junior coaching and hopefully be greeted with good players. Which we were. Our two weakest points in the team were the strikers and the attacking left midfielder. An amazing striker named Remy Bauduin was rated at 4.5 stars, phenomenal for a 14 year old - or it shows how bad our strikers are. I'm looking forward to playing these players in the future, perhaps even a few times from the bench this season! I signed 4 players for the first team and 10 players for the youth team. Some of them may go into the first team next season however.

Overall it was a good batch of players but technically they are lacking. A good technical training scheme should help them improve there weaknesses.

[B][U][SIZE=4]March[/SIZE][/U][/B]

The month of March consisted of Penya playing in the second leg of the Andorran Cup, facing difficult opposition in two league games, and most importantly seeing who has the youth candidates are this year.

[B][U][URL="http://img651.imageshack.us/img651/360/escaldesvpenyaencarnada.png"]Atletic d'Escaldes vs Penya Encarnada[/URL][/U][/B]
If it wasn't for the 4-1 win in the first leg, I would have been nervous. We played well once again and secured progression through to the semi finals of the Andorran Cup thanks to a 1-1 draw against Atletic d'Escaldes. Bring on the semi finals!

[B][U][URL="http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/4376/ramazanjesusnewsinbox.png"]Andorran Cup Semi Final draw[/URL][/U][/B] - We were drawn against Encamp or Jenlai. Encamp won the game so we will be facing them.

[B][U][URL="http://img213.imageshack.us/img213/2071/penyaencarnadavsantacol.png"]Penya Encarnada vs Santa Coloma B[/URL][/U][/B]
We were dominated by Santa Coloma B and deserved to lose 3-1. We started off well with Revilla scoring early on. However we couldn't hold on and two 60 ish minute goals and a late penalties lost it for us.

[B][U][URL="http://img838.imageshack.us/img838/1306/fsmassanavpenyaencarnad.png"]FS Massana vs Penya Encarnada[/URL][/U][/B]
A tough game against the league leaders was to follow our 3-1 loss to Santa Coloma B. We started off strongly with two penalties converted by the ever improving [URL="http://img193.imageshack.us/img193/3520/victorgmezyp02overviewp.png"]YP02[/URL]. FS Massana then got a goal back and I began to get worried. However in the 69th minute we scored once again and the game was won for Penya. A fully deserved victory against a tough opposition.

A good month which left us in 5th position with a game in hand over FC Rangers. The cup quarter final win was excellent and fully deserved but sadly we couldn't beat Santa Coloma B to make it a winning month.

The final month of league games was upon us. In this month we had a whopping 4 league games to play all against tough opposition, as usual. The first game was at home but the other 3 were all away. A good 8 points was a minimum for this month.

[B][U][URL="http://img534.imageshack.us/img534/5682/escaldesinformationover.png"]Penya Encarnada vs Atletic d'Escaldes[/URL][/U][/B]
We lined up with the same team that beat FS Massana in the last game. We played well and hit the woodwork twice in an enthralling game which finished 2-0 to us. A great win which meant that we had won our game in hand pushing us up into 4th position.

[B][U][URL="http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/7577/extremenyavpenyaencarna.png"]Extremenya vs Penya Encarnada[/URL][/U][/B]
A game against a team with poor form was what we needed - 3 points was a must. Once again we hit the woodwork twice but came out the game with a 2-2 draw with Villalgordo scoring both goals. 4 points so far, 2 games to go.

[B][U][URL="http://img338.imageshack.us/img338/4571/lusitansbvpenyaencarnad.png"]Lusitans B vs Penya Encarnada[/URL][/U][/B]
So far in the past two seasons with Penya we had beaten Lusitans more than any other team which meant that 3 points was a must, which is what we got. A superb 3-1 win with a goal early on from YP06 followed by two more excellent goals from Vincente and Ferreira meant we were 3 up. A missed penalty by YP02 thankfully didn't matter and despite Lusitans B going down to 9 men, they still got a last minute consolation goal.

[B][U][URL="http://img864.imageshack.us/img864/6518/principatbvpenyaencarna.png"]Pricipat B vs Penya Encarnada[/URL][/U][/B]
The final game of this month and this season was against bottom of the table Principat B. Earlier in the season I had beaten their A team 1-0 aet in the Andorran Cup second round which meant that once again 3 points was a must. A 4-1 score at full time meant that we got the 3 points. Pilan, who had been out for the past two months, came back in dramatic fashion and scored a goal for us. A great win to round of a great season.

The month of the Andorran Cup semi finals was upon us. I was hoping for a win in the semi final but to be honest with you, I wasn't that optimistic.

[B][U][URL="http://img839.imageshack.us/img839/8850/encampvpenyaencarnadain.png"]Encamp vs Penya Encarnada (Semi Final Leg 1)[/URL][/U][/B]
We lined up with the strongest team possible hoping to cause an upset away from home against a strong team. We played excellently all match and could have won 3, 4 or maybe even 5 nil but it ended up 3-2 to us, thanks to Encamp scoring two late, late goals. I would have taken a 3-2 win at the start of the match so I was happy with the game.

[B][U][URL="http://img692.imageshack.us/img692/721/penyaencarnadavencampin.png"]Penya Encarnada vs Encamp (Semi Final Leg 2)[/URL][/U][/B]
Due to the closeness of the two legs I couldn't field my strongest team. However despite playing poorly throughout the game and being dominated by Encamp, we got a 0-0 bore draw which meant we got through to the final of the Andorran Cup thanks to a 3-2 aggregate score!

I knew for a fact before this game that it would end in loss. The difference in quality between Penya and Santa Coloma's A team is way too much for even an upset to occur. We got dominated throughout the match with their player Josep Vall scoring a hattrick. The final score was 3-1 which wasn't actually as bad as I thought it could have been. A strong performance this year in the cup which has given me confidence for next year.

A 3rd place finish means that we will spend another year in the Andorran Second Division. FS Massana ended up winning the title and being promoted and Atletic d'Escaldes won the play-off final against Encamp to also get promoted.

[B][U][URL="http://img138.imageshack.us/img138/8307/andorrasquadplayers.png"]Squad[/URL][/U][/B]
Currently I have got a fairly large squad but I can only let go of a player if a club approaches them so for now I will have to get over it. My key players were Ferreira (who played brilliantly throughout), Villalgordo (who got some vital goals when needed), Victor Gomez (YP02) and Manuel Pilan (who played well in CM).

[B][U][URL="http://img96.imageshack.us/img96/3417/andorratacticsoverview.png"]Tactics[/URL][/U][/B]
Throughout the season I used the 4-1-1-3-1 because I felt for the situation it would work. It continued to work well and I found when I took out the DM and put in another striker, the team fell apart. Surprisingly the counter philosophy is also much better than the other philosophies so I will be sticking with it next season.

[B][U][SIZE=4]September[/SIZE][/U][/B]

September is the month that the season began and I was hoping from the single game in the month that I would get all 3 points because the team I was facing was the usually rubbish Lusitans B.

[B][U][URL="http://img252.imageshack.us/img252/4571/lusitansbvpenyaencarnad.png"]Lusitans B vs Penya Encarnada[/URL][/U][/B]
This should have been an easy game as Lusitans B have been in the last two seasons the easiest team to beat, winning all four games against them. I decided as it should have been an easy game, I might as well put loads of YPs into the first eleven. We won 4-1 with [URL="http://img713.imageshack.us/img713/6520/remybauduinyp07overview.png"]YP07[/URL] and [URL="http://img842.imageshack.us/img842/1034/pepemartinezyp09overvie.png"]YP09[/URL] on the scoresheet.

[B][U][SIZE=4]October[/SIZE][/U][/B]

October consisted of 3 matches against strong opposition. My aim was to get 7 points from these three games. To do so we would need two good wins and a draw, at a minimum.

[B][U][URL="http://img707.imageshack.us/img707/6652/penyaencarnadavcasabenf.png"]Penya Encarnada vs Casa Benfica[/URL][/U][/B]
Our first game was against recently relegated Casa Benfica. I swapped a few players around who were either injured or did not play well in the last match. We won the match dominantly 4-0 with 3 YPs on the scoresheet! It was a great game and an excellent performance which gives me the confidence that this year is our year!

[B][U][URL="http://img818.imageshack.us/img818/2071/penyaencarnadavsantacol.png"]Penya Encarnada vs Santa Coloma B[/URL][/U][/B]
At the start of this game Santa Coloma B was in 2nd place and hot on our heels. This was always going to be a tough game as every season so far SCB have been up there with Penya and time after time we have lost or drawn to them. They started off extremely well with a goal after just 4 minutes, but an instant reply by Penya followed by 2 further goals gave us a 3-1 lead at half time. We ended up winning the game 4-2 with Martinez (YP09) getting two more goals and quickly becoming our best player at the club.

My third and final game of the month was against Jenlai, who used to be my bogey team, but I think I have got over than now. A solid 2-0 win for Penya meant this month had been a winning month, 3 games played, 3 games won!

A superb month due to an 100% win record! Each game we played well and won comfortably which means from now on I will be playing a lot of YPs simply because they are so much better than the older players. Hopefully this will not backfire.

This month I was aiming to get 7 points from a possible 9. This would mean at least 2 wins and a draw, however 3 wins would obviously be welcomed.

[B][U][URL="http://img525.imageshack.us/img525/3051/penyaencarnadavprincipa.png"]Penya Encarnada vs Principat B[/URL][/U][/B]
We started off the month against Principat B, who are usually rubbish. We played superbly through out and deserved to win by a bigger margin that 3-2 but a win is a win and the 3 points were gained. Our winning streak continues!

[B][U][URL="http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/8850/encampvpenyaencarnadain.png"]Encamp vs Penya Encarnada[/URL][/U][/B]
Encamp at the time were just below us in 2nd place. We needed to get a win or draw to make sure the title race was still on, even if it still early in the season. We won thanks to an 87th minute winner and them missing a penalty. A deserved win against a top, top team.

[B][U][URL="http://img254.imageshack.us/img254/2092/engordanyvpenyaencarnad.png"]Engordany vs Penya Encarnada[/URL][/U][/B]
We went into this game will maximum points in the league knowing that a win would make it another winning month, however it was not to be. Thanks to a late equalizer in the 89th minute we got a point to help maintain our unbeaten form of late.

The aim of December was to get another 7 points. This would ensure that we would be top of the table at the end of the year. To get the aim of 7 points we would need 2 wins and 1 draw, and continue our unbeaten run this season.

[B][U][URL="http://img100.imageshack.us/img100/2083/penyaencarnadavlusitans.png"]Penya Encarnada vs Lusitans B[/URL][/U][/B]
We dominated the game from start to finish and were unlucky to get just a 1-0 winning score. [URL="http://img189.imageshack.us/img189/423/joseramonmartinezyp10ov.png"]YP10[/URL] got on the scoresheet in the 50th minute to ensure the full 3 points.

[B][U][URL="http://img715.imageshack.us/img715/2530/penyaencarnadavextremen.png"]Penya Encarnada vs Extremenya[/URL][/U][/B]
A close games with a couple of short terms injuries ended in us winning 2-1. [URL="http://img820.imageshack.us/img820/3811/ngelmonasterioyp04overv.png"]YP04[/URL], Penya's DC, got on the scoresheet in the 66th minute, and [URL="http://img842.imageshack.us/img842/1034/pepemartinezyp09overvie.png"]YP09[/URL] got the winning goal from the penalty spot in the 76th minute. Another good, solid win and another 3 points.

[B][U][URL="http://img52.imageshack.us/img52/9779/sinformationoverview.png"]Penya Encarnada vs FC Rangers[/URL][/U][/B]
We played well in the first half and got a deserved goal from [URL="http://img593.imageshack.us/img593/3520/victorgmezyp02overviewp.png"]YP02[/URL], possibly our best player at the club, but we were dominated in the second and didn't have a single shot.

The aim of January was to get all 3 points in the only league game of the month whilst also keeping all my players. Recently our players have had very little interest from other clubs but this transfer window I knew that we would get at least a few approaches, due to the fact we were sitting top of the table.

[B][U][SIZE=4]February[/SIZE][/U][/B]

February greeted us with a whopping 6 games, which is unusual for Andorran football. We played 3 Andorran Cup games, and 3 league games. This meant that we could get progression to the semi finals of the Andorran Cup and all 9 points, if everything went to plan!

[B][U][URL="http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/194/penyaencarnadavjenlaiin.png"]Penya Encarnada vs Jenlai[/URL][/U][/B]
Me vs my bogey team was always going to be difficult and so it was. A 1-1 draw was the fair result as both teams could barely get through each other's defence. Although it wasn't the result I wanted, a point is good enough.

[B][U][URL="http://img825.imageshack.us/img825/6652/penyaencarnadavcasabenf.png"]Penya Encarnada vs Casa Benfica (Andorran Cup 1st round)[/URL][/U][/B]
Recently relegated Casa Benfica was a tough test for the first round of the Andorran Cup. We were out played throughout the game but held onto a 2-2 draw after extra time. We scored 4 penalties to confirm progression to the second round.

[B][U][URL="http://img841.imageshack.us/img841/5169/santacolomabvpenyaencar.png"]Santa Coloma B vs Penya Encarnada[/URL][/U][/B]
SCB have always been a tough side to beat and we rarely get an easy win. This game ended in a 1-1 draw thanks to a converted penalty by [URL="http://img842.imageshack.us/img842/1034/pepemartinezyp09overvie.png"]YP09[/URL]. We could have won, perhaps we should have won, but I will take the point and move on.

[B][U][URL="http://img84.imageshack.us/img84/4571/lusitansbvpenyaencarnad.png"]Lusitans B vs Penya Encarnada (Andorran Cup 2nd round)[/URL][/U][/B]
Recently our form against Lusitans B was getting worse. We had won many of our previous games, but none were easy. This game ended 1-1 after extra time and as with the first round, it went to penalties. Once again 4 converted penalties were enough to get the win and progression to the quarter finals.

[B][U][URL="http://img189.imageshack.us/img189/2092/engordanyvpenyaencarnad.png"]Engordany vs Penya Encarnada (Andorran Cup Quarter Finals Leg 1)[/URL][/U][/B]
We played rubbish, we got a deserved loss and were lucky it wasn't 3-1 because they missed a penalty. [URL="http://img820.imageshack.us/img820/3811/ngelmonasterioyp04overv.png"]YP04[/URL] once again made a mistake, this time a sending off, which only worsened our problems.

[B][U][URL="http://img824.imageshack.us/img824/7495/penyaencarnadavengordan.png"]Penya Encarnada vs Engordany[/URL][/U][/B]
Next was a league game against Engordany which we played even worse and lost 2-0. We just couldn't break down their defence, which meant we were out played for the majority of the match. Our first loss in the league :(

[B][U][SIZE=4]Youth Candidates[/SIZE][/U][/B]

The time has come to see who has come through our rubbish junior coaching and hopefully be greeted with decent players who can hopefully be playing first team football in the next few years. This year we were given two excellent players and 8 players who were signed for the youth team. [URL="http://img4.imageshack.us/img4/9409/enriqueabascalyp13overv.png"]YP13[/URL] is a DC who has a 4 star rating despite having poor attributes. [URL="http://img837.imageshack.us/img837/8379/vitorbaptistayp14overvi.png"]YP14[/URL] is a DM/CM who has a 3 1/2 star rating, and also has poor attributes.

[B][U][URL="http://img837.imageshack.us/img837/8379/vitorbaptistayp14overvi.png"]YP14[/URL][/U][/B] - He also has some very poor attributes technically and mentally, but he does also have some decent attributes.

Overall it was a good batch of players this year. The two new YPs aren't the best, however what I did get this year is lots of players that have the possibility of being promoted from the youth team to the senior team and become decent players.

Just two games this month, the first being the second leg of the Andorran Cup Quarter Final, and the other being a league game against Extremenya. The aim was to get a win in the league, and to avoid embarrassment in the QF.

Finally a win... but then a loss thanks to the penalty shootout. A 2-1 win meant that the scores were level on aggregate. I went into the penalty shootout with confidence, but sadly we couldn't win it, so much for "third time lucky"!

[B][U][URL="http://img811.imageshack.us/img811/7577/extremenyavpenyaencarna.png"]Extremenya vs Penya Encarnada[/URL][/U][/B]
We needed a solid win and that is what we got... just! We started badly, conceding two goals within 21 minutes. However we hit back in amazing style. 4 consecutive goals meant a 4-2 win and all 3 points in the bag. At times I felt we were going to get another draw, but two late goals won it for us.

This month was about securing automatic promotion to the first division. I had 3 games this month and I needed to get at least 6 points from them, or else I may not get promotion!

[B][U][URL="http://img338.imageshack.us/img338/6518/principatbvpenyaencarna.png"]Principat B vs Penya Encarnada[/URL][/U][/B]
This was one of those games where FM was trying to frustrate you as much as they could. It was the classic 3 shots 3 goals for Principat B but luckily I got 4, thankfully scoring in the 91st minute to get all 3 points. I could have gone horribly wrong!

[B][U][URL="http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/721/penyaencarnadavencampin.png"]Penya Encarnada vs Encamp[/URL][/U][/B]
A fairly equal game where the result could have gone either way. A 1-1 draw was the final result and the single point was fully deserved. We now needed FC Rangers to either draw or lose to Lusitans B...

After a [URL="http://img408.imageshack.us/img408/3561/svlusitansbinformationo.png"]0-0[/URL] draw between FC Rangers and Lusitans B, we were crowned the [URL="http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/16/ramazanjesusnewsinboxf.png"]winner of the Second Division[/URL].

:D Yeah the finances are a bit weird, but they aren't that important at the moment.

[B][U][SIZE=4]Season Summary 13/14[/SIZE][/U][/B]

[B][U][URL="http://img714.imageshack.us/img714/9376/andorranseconddivisiono.png"]Andorran Second Division[/URL][/U][/B]
A 1st place finish in the league meant that we will be playing in the First Division next season. It has taken a while but hopefully it will be worth it. FC Rangers came second and won the play off, meaning they were promoted with us into the First Division.

[B][U][URL="http://img31.imageshack.us/img31/3227/andorrafixturesfixtures.png"]Results[/URL][/U][/B] - Here are the results from this season.
[B][U][URL="http://img707.imageshack.us/img707/4360/under19soverviewstages.png"]U19s League Table[/URL][/U][/B] - A really bad month for the U19s for some reason.
[B][U][URL="http://img685.imageshack.us/img685/2273/penyaencarnadatransfers.png"]Transfers[/URL][/U][/B] - I released 7 players to reduce the squad size, but sadly YP02 left the club due to having an amateur contract.
[B][U][URL="http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/6039/penyaencarnadaboardroom.png"]Board Confidence[/URL][/U][/B] - Delighted with the way I'm leading the team.
[B][U][URL="http://img846.imageshack.us/img846/6039/penyaencarnadaboardroom.png"]Finances[/URL][/U][/B] - Lost loads in May for some reason.

[B][U][URL="http://img535.imageshack.us/img535/8307/andorrasquadplayers.png"]Squad[/URL][/U][/B]
The squad keeps getting better and better every year, and this year is no different. This years best players were Remy Bauduin (YP07), Carmelo Duco, and Pepe Martinez (YP09). Each played their part in the promotion winning season.

[B][U][URL="http://img213.imageshack.us/img213/3417/andorratacticsoverview.png"]Tactics[/URL][/U][/B]
This season I could not decide what formation to choose. I started the season with 4-1-1-3-1 which proved good but not amazing. I then went a few games with 5 at the back, which I found was useful defensively but the lack of goals made me drop that formation. At the end of the season I used the 4-1-1-2-2 formation. Although our results weren't as good, I felt we played better with this formation. Currently I'm not sure which formation to use for next season, it all depends on how the first few games go I suppose.

[B][U]Youth Prospects[/U][/B]
[B][URL="http://img194.imageshack.us/img194/884/abelvillalbayp01overvie.png"]YP01[/URL][/B] - Has been removed from the database after spending a season on free transfer.
[B][URL="http://img833.imageshack.us/img833/3520/victorgmezyp02overviewp.png"]YP02[/URL][/B] - Left for Atletic d'Escaldes and has only played 5 games so far. Atletic were relegated and he will now be playing in the Second Division. The sad fact is that I would be playing him in the First Division had he stayed.
[B][URL="http://img705.imageshack.us/img705/1130/mariogarciayp03overview.png"]YP03[/URL][/B] - Didn't play him due to Duco playing excellently this season.
[B][URL="http://img718.imageshack.us/img718/3811/ngelmonasterioyp04overv.png"]YP04[/URL][/B] - Generally he is a good defender, but scores way to many own goals.
[B][URL="http://img854.imageshack.us/img854/6219/bielvillalongayp05overv.png"]YP05[/URL][/B] - Very injury prone so only played 12 games this season. When he does play he is one of the best in the team.
[B][URL="http://img99.imageshack.us/img99/6350/juancarlosboixyp06overv.png"]YP06[/URL][/B] - Injured for most of the season so only played 10 games. However a high 7.22 average rating, and 2 goals in those games was great.
[B][URL="http://img84.imageshack.us/img84/6520/remybauduinyp07overview.png"]YP07[/URL][/B] - A great end to the season meant that he scored 7 times in 16 games, with an average rating of 7.13. One for the future for certain.
[B][URL="http://img821.imageshack.us/img821/3773/gabrielsantosyp08overvi.png"]YP08[/URL][/B] - Although he is a great player, he is unlucky Ferreira plays in the same position as him. Played 5 games with an average rating of 6.32, not good.
[B][URL="http://img804.imageshack.us/img804/1034/pepemartinezyp09overvie.png"]YP09[/URL][/B] - My player of the season with 13 goals in 20 appearances. Looking forward to seeing him play next year.
[B][URL="http://img407.imageshack.us/img407/423/joseramonmartinezyp10ov.png"]YP10[/URL][/B] - The best CM at the club which meant he played 17 games this season with 2 goals scored.
[B][URL="http://img848.imageshack.us/img848/2738/pacocortesyp11overviewp.png"]YP11[/URL][/B] - Sadly he has two DMs who can play better than him which meant he played very few games last season. He will be released in the next transfer window.
[B][URL="http://img714.imageshack.us/img714/9576/joaojourencoyp12overvie.png"]YP12[/URL][/B] - Played all season as the DC and was simply a rock. He didn't let me down once, very pleased.
[B][URL="http://img825.imageshack.us/img825/9409/enriqueabascalyp13overv.png"]YP13[/URL][/B] - According to my assistant he is the best DC at the club. I will begin playing him mid way through the next season, as he is only 14.
[B][URL="http://img338.imageshack.us/img338/8379/vitorbaptistayp14overvi.png"]YP14[/URL][/B] - He has quality, but not as much as YP10.

[B][U][URL="http://img28.imageshack.us/img28/6276/andorrancupoverviewstag.png"]Andorran Cup[/URL][/U][/B]
We got to the Quarter Finals this season thanks to penalty shootouts. We won the first two penalty shootouts to get to the quarters but when it really counted we failed! Hopefully next season we can get to the semis.

[B][U][URL="http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/7756/andorranfirstdivisionov.png"]Andorran First Division[/URL][/U][/B]
Sant Julia won the title and got ECC qualification whilst Santa Coloma came second and got EC qualification. U.E. Santa Coloma and Principat both also got an EC place, for some reason. Atletic d'Escaldes and Inter d'Escaldes will both be playing in the Second Division due to finishing in 7th and 8th place.

[B]English Premier League[/B] - Man Utd won the title, Arsenal second and Liverpool third.
[B]Fa Cup[/B] - Arenal beat Man Utd at Wembley in the FA Cup final.
[B]Serie A[/B] - AC Milan won the title, Inter second and Juventus third.
[B]Liga BBVA[/B] - Barcelona won the title, Real Madrid second and Athletico Madrid third.
[B]Ligue 1[/B] - PSG won the title, Lyon came second and OM came third.
[B]German First Division[/B] - FC Bayern won the title, Schalke second and Leverkusen third.

[I]Phew! Took ages to write up this season summary, hope you enjoy reading it![/I]

Quite eventful to say the least. Being semi-professional is great as I can now keep all my best players without them being stolen. Very happy! :)
