Wigan - Onwards And Upwards

A real shame you conceded against Tenerife. I hate winning x-1, to the point I've let in goals to win 8-2 or whatever.

Good luck with Barca. :)

Update Three - Thirty Match Update

Summary

Well its been a massive month, seeing us fly to the top of the league, two massive games in a week against the two other title challngers Valencia and Athletico Madrid, were dealt with, with almost ease. That's put us well in the clear, I thought if we beat Bilbao away then that would essentially be the title won. Losing angered me, but we're still well on course with a very easy run-in. My target off 100 points, to break the La Liga points record (level with the real life one) is still very achievable. My issue is that CM are dropping like flys, forcing me to promote under-19's. But that is the Barca way! Winning the title is almost straight forward from here, but the Champions League looks extremley difficult, here's hoping!

UEFA Champions League

Not happy at all, we dominated the first game and should have put them to the sword instead they hit back in the blink of an eye and its 2-1. At the Etihad, we had no central midfielders and had to play youth players, and you know thats not a good sign.

I'm gutted, and Mr.Mourinho's got one over on Barca again!

End Of Season Update

Summary

Well a brilliant season, my first domestic title, and a record breaking season. The most points ever, the most goals ever. Highest ever goal difference. The most goals by a single player. (messi, who else)

A phenominal league campaign, i am very dissapointed that we could reign at Murrayfield and win the Champions league. I will go for another year with Barca and try and bag myself Old big ears.

In terms of where the league was one, it was the two game home stretch against Valencia and Madrid, after that it was all about getting to 100 points, we cruised there despite one game against Mallorca where we almost wanted to throw it away!

Just found this guy for Juventus, i'm amazed at him. Not only the price tag for his stats, but he's a natural centre half and striker? as well as a good Winger? bizzare really

UEFA Champions League

A massive game, Manchester City v Real Madrid. Jose Mourinho chasing his fourth, count it fourth Champions League with different clubs (Madrid, Porto and Inter previously) 7th in total. Jose had also chalked off ANOTHER, domestic league title on goal difference from Felix Magath's Manchester United. City were also gunning for their first ever Champions League victory, and too end the strangle hold the 'big two' in Spain have had on the competition since 2011.

Massamillaino Allegri, was chasing his 2nd trophy in his first year. He had an abbysmal league season, but has the Copa Del Ray under his belt and a chance to get one over on the man who walked out on Madrid.

The Final

So Mr Mourinho took it, the man who knocked me out got one over on his former club. He just guarentees success doesnt he? Manchester City's first ever Champions League and first ever domestic and european double.

Yaya Toure has come up with some big goals for that club, and none bigger than his extra-time winner at Murrayfield

Path to the Final

haha it could be a devastating duo, Bale will play LWB, when i develop my new tactic at home which goes something along the lines of 1-3-4-1-1

New Contract

Transfers

barcelonatransfershisto.png

Transfer Summary

David De Gea - A free transfer I couldn't say no too, Will rotate with ter Stagen.

Rafael - Needed a RB who was willing to warm the bench after moving on Dani Alves and his ludicrous 175k a week at 34.

Gareth Bale - My top target at a reasonable £22m, allowed me to move out Bojan, will rotate with Alexis, Lucas and Neymar

Alex - A good good prospect, potential to replace Iniesta, or atleast allow me to shift another prospect or Fabregas into Iniesta's role - He has everything technical ability and a good physical presence. Really like the look of this lad

Season Seven - Update One - Ten Match Update

Summary

Well an interesting start to the season which saw us begin by demolishing Real Madrid 4-0 away. Since then its been up and down, only 1 defeat had seen us somehow in 5th place in the league. However with our games in hand we can fly above both Malaga and Zaragoza, our real competition is Madrid however, Allegri seems to be pulling things together, if we win our game in hand we're just one point behind them, win our home Classico and draw atleast away then we're champions.

A big plus for the season is once again Messi's form. This was the year i was going to start resting him more and use him more impactly, more rotation and even dropping him back to CM for some games. But his for has remained outstanding with 25 goals in 17 games, he's simply unstoppable.

The board already offered me a ludicrous transfer war chest, but in the last week theyve increased it and now its just obscene!

I've also developed another new tactic which i think is a little closer to Barca's style its my 3rd choice being used in CDR matches atm its a 3-1-1-1-3-1 (lb, 2cb, rwb, dm, cm, lam, cam,ram,st)

What do people think of doing newspapers like this for some things in the game world to make it more immersive for big transfers or managerial movements?

Love the "rag sheet" presentation, certainly gave me a little chuckle and had to post a note to say so :)

Not a bad career so far either...mirrors my old Wigan game apart from the leaving Wigan bit. Didn't get that far.

Update Two - Twenty Match Update

Summary

Well its been another good run of results, we've crusied into the knock-out phases of the Champions League. Into the semi-finals of the Copa Del Ray, using a second string XI.

In the league we have only dropped two points in ten games, but in La Liga, two points is two points too many. We top the table but Madrid have a game in hand, all roads lead to the Bernebau at the end of the season to decide the title.

I've been linked with Mario Gotze and i'm a huge fan, but to get him you have to play a huge premium, if im going to bring him in i'll look to finance the deal with the sales of Iker Muniain and Alexis Sanchez. I know i have a £300m transfer budget, but i like to be as near self sufficient in the transfer market as i can be.
