The battle for a Champions League place went to the final game and it was slipping away from us at

0-2 down in that final game against Arsenal, we managed to recover to get a 2-2 draw to secure 4th.

We had great runs in the FA Cup and Champions League but both ended in heartbreak

as we lost both finals, it was the second season in a row that we lost the FA Cup final.

We are the Champions! We led for most of the season but Man Utd were always on our tail.

The lead never got to more than 7pts until right at the end and we also lost 6pts to Man Utd

in the head to heads, we lost both games 2-3 after leading 2-0 in both games.

Back to this and future plans.

4RB7rN.jpg

Waiting to see how this developes, hoping to rack up aas many points as possible before the worst happens.

If we get the points deducted hopefully we can still be in with a shout of the title, will be changes next season.

My future plans will involve big changes at the club, I want to make the club all English/British or maybe give

myself a limit of 3 foreign players, also want to go down the youth route but won't be relying on the youth squad.

The plan is to bring in some cheap youth players, I want to make this a quick transformation for the club so

will start bringing some in during the January window, then in the summer we will make big changes to the squad.

How bitter if this is going to cost you the title. But hey, if you can avoid selling any big names you may still be strong enough to pull it off... ;)

Our results so far.............................

TmlX1x.jpg

Despite the financial woes things have been going great on the pitch, we made easy work of our

group in the Champions League and can look forward to the next stage, in the league we needed good

form to have any chance of being in the title race with the points deducted, we couldn't keep the

unbeaten run going and it was very annoying that it would end at home and even more annoying

that it was Arsenal especially after avoiding defeat in the previous game at Old Trafford where we were

second best but did well to end a losing run against Man Utd and earn a point thanks to a Hernandez brace.

We were forced to sell players due to the financial problems.

It could have been a lot worse though.

Two of those deals were forced, selling Young was my decision.

There were also a lot of clauses attached to the Mihaljevic & Robertinho deals.

We then received better news including a transfer that failed (thankfully).

It didn't look good when Barcelona took the lead with their first effort on target but we were

soon back on level terms and led at the break, it remained a tense match in the second half

even though we were the better side, we finally settled our nerves when Knox added a third.

k8xloE.jpg

We could only manage 4th in defence of our title, we were good enough to defend it but

the 9 point deduction was the difference as we picked up more points than any other team.

FA Cup = 5th Round (Lost 2-0 to Middlesbrough) League Cup = Quarter-Final (Lost 3-2 to Brentford)

Champions League = Final WINNERS (Beat Barcelona 3-1)

David Walker our Director of Football retired so we welcome Luke Barrow from Arsenal to the club.

I have decided to make the squad predominantly British so some big transfers have happened.

Not big in as much as the fee's but big because the quality going out is higher than coming in at this moment in time.

3-1 up and we messed that up big time.

We won the Club World Cup though.

7RkLYI.jpg

Here is how the title race is going.

xS9lzN.jpg

It looked like Man City were going to run away with it when they had a 10pt lead at the top.

If they win the game in hand it will still be a good lead but a bit more pressure on them now.

Great form in the Premier League really put pressure on Man City and they have slipped

under that pressure, victory in the head to head was far from comfortable as City dominated

for large periods but we were solid and took our chances, Man City then lost again as we now

move three points clear at the top, can we land a second title? I'm very happy with some of the

new signings as they are proving other players (Knox & Moore) wrong so far, both players

requested transfers earlier in the season as they didn't think my signings were good enough.

It's funny to be talking about him as a legend, but have him on the exit list.

Oh yeah I put him on there as part of my plans to make the club mainly British players, I forget that he is on and should really take him off, my plan was to limit my squad to about 3/5 foreign players.

Crazy thing is that nobody made any bids for him in either window, not that I was too upset though and it hasn't stopped him performing well so I guess he doesn't hold it against me.:)

the campaign with a 1-0 defeat to Chelsea, very disappointing as we should have got more from those games.

It wasn't the end to the season I was hoping for, we drew a blank in our last three league

games though I'm not quite sure how. More heartbreak followed as we lost a third FA Cup final.

FA Cup = Final (Lost 2-1 (aet) to Man Utd) League Cup = 4th Round (Lost 4-3 (aet) to Man City)

UEFA Super Cup = Final (Lost 5-3 to Borussia Dortmund) FIFA Club World Cup = Final WINNERS (Beat Estudiantes 2-0)

Hard luck with that run to finish the season.

Yeah was tough but we just couldn't put our chances away in those final league games, mixture of some great goalkeeping and us not being clinical enough.

Player Transfers

UeXCnq.jpg

Leberl, Reed & Roberts retired and I let Palmer leave for a knockdown price and we will also be contributing to his wage.

He has hung around in our reserves so rather than let him waste time there I'd rather he goes and gets some games.

Also not on that screenshot is Lopez, he was our back-up keeper and he retired so McGrath was signed as a cheap

replacement. We didn't have a big transfer budget anyway and most was used on Jack Matthews who is a left midfielder.

Results 1 & Results 2

Some big results in there, obviously the 8-1 win against defending champions Man Utd is a stand out result.

The really poor results are the 3-3 with Stoke as we were 3-0 up at half time and the 5-4 defeat to Sheff Utd

had me raging as we were also 3-0 up in that game, they pulled 2 back before half time then took a 4-3 lead,

we drew level at 4-4 only for them to go and a bag a winner 2 minutes into injury time.
