2023/24 Season Review

A very unceremonious end, but we are safe in La Liga for a 3rd year.

This was perhaps our toughest season, especially towards the end, where we fell apart, winning just 3 in our last 15. I don't think there's cause for alarm, as in the team comparison we are very near bottom in the league for a lot of attributes. All I have to do is keep perservering, waiting for our young players to develop, and reap the rewards. There's just a bit of a lull as our older players decline and our younger players are rising to bridge the gap to ultimately go above and beyond what their predecessors have.

 

 

Best Eleven

 

Carlos Abad

 

Fermín 1D*  -  Jonay 3B  -  Arodi Bolado 2A*

 

Luis Pérez  -  Iker Undabarrena  -  Alberto  -  Calem González 2E

 

 

 

Borja Lasso

 

Rafa Mújica  -  Nicolás 3A

A really difficult opening run of games, but we have seemed to have turned around our form with wins over Sevilla and Espanyol.

We got our tough month out of the way, including a second 5-3 win over Sevilla. Sevilla are seriously struggling, their defence seems really awful. It's looking like they may go down!

2025 Youth Intake

We were due a poor intake, and we finally have one. At least we get a couple of wing backs though.

A very good end to the season, and we end in 12th. Sevilla manage to survive, and Real Madrid go through the season undefeated. I think we can only get better next season, perhaps a serious push for the continental places.

There was no way he was going to re-sign with us, so I decided to cash in while I still had the chance. We still get him for another 2 seasons, which I feel is more than enough time for someone else to make the step up and replace him when he goes.

Quite possibly the best ever player I've had come through a youth system in this game. What a player. Hopefully his last two seasons with us will be spectacular.

This save is back, and with a new tactical approach I hope will benefit me in both the short and long term. I changed the tactic in November and bar the Madrid loss, it has fared well so far.

 

 

ae7b405feb950628ca589f7988f1fe17.png

 

I'm hoping this makes us very solid in attack and defence with 5 players each contributing to those phases of play.

I don't want the FBs contributing to the attack in case they get exposed and the ball goes in behind. For this reason we will be defending narrower, as I'd rather them have the ball out wide than in the middle  of the pitch.

The Anchor Man is expected to hold his position in front of the defence, in case a fast break ensues.

I'm very unsure about the use of a Segundo Volante, but the role description fits what I want. Contributing as a 5th attacker but also dropping back as a 6th defender when we are under pressure.

 

As for the front four, once we get comfortable tactically they should be able to work very well together.

 

I'm optimistic this will work, but it's just as likely this blows up in my face.

I'm glad we weren't drawn in Group E, but Group F is just as difficult. If we can get a good result against Marseille maybe we can finish 3rd, but that's a stretch.

A slow start to October, but we ended it with a bang, with a brilliant win over Juventus and 2 big wins after that. We finally got a good draw in the cup too, against 3rd division Sestao.

With Barcelona and Real Madrid out of the way in terms of playing them again, it appears to be pretty smooth sailing for the rest of the season. The only other team that would be challenging form wise would be Valencia. But we are within a win of the lead now, and it appears to look like a 3 horse race for the title. Hopefully we don't suddenly fall away. We have a small advantage going into the home leg of our tie against Monaco too, with that away goal.

Things are really heating up now at the back end of the season. It's still a 3 horse race, but Madrid have the upper hand. Inexplicably, we are still in the Champions League after a second leg performance for the ages, a 5-0 win over Real Madrid. We also have the upper hand against Barcelona in our semi, the winner of which will play Atletico Madrid or PSG in the final.
