Unlucky with the Madrid job, not sure what else you have to do to get it!

Great work turning the season around

Probably it's not lose 7 league games in a season. They lost only 2 last season and still didn't win the league, losing out to Barcelona by 10 points

We played 10 matches in preseason, mixing games against big teams with games we expected to win easily. I am delighted with 10 wins from 10

Nominally, we made two signings over the summer, but Clovis was here last season, and the transfer was a compulsory purchase as part of his loan deal

He has improved as a player over the last year though

3935607_Clovis2.thumb.PNG.8c2487f9e73937a1e1d65c08af141140.PNG

and Aydin joins on loan as a right back

This is my squad for the new season

and these are the players in my under 23s, who I hope to bring through to the first team if I stick around long enough. The only exception being Grillo, who I will sell if I get a reasonable offer

Only two league games in August, and 4 points gained, but that was the bare minimum I expected

1734501768_Aug2034.thumb.PNG.2f603b6b40892638f517f62f3d976f28.PNG

and that leaves us off the pace set by leaders Milan

We had a perfect September

1513534505_Sep2034.thumb.PNG.2719d11dd568a8709b67fa42379bdad7.PNG

sending us to the top of Serie A

125290491_Sep2034table.thumb.PNG.5493598676f6af4f89bba93b0a27e1fb.PNG

and we are top of the early Champions League group table too

We lost our opening game of October, a Champions League home match against Toulouse (deservedly, we were awful), but responded by winning our other matches

729898823_Oct2034.thumb.PNG.50b59f29c52cb7c8b32e7c30473d095f.PNG

to leave us 5 points clear at the top of Serie A, with Atalanta our surprise nearest challengers

410242340_Oct2034table.thumb.PNG.6dbd7fb68d1f489c5d81b945c6dd0fff.PNG

and we're second in our Champions League group, with Atletico Madrid next up in Turin. Win that and qualification is very much in our own hands

We remain unbeaten in the league at the end of November, but there were two sloppy points dropped, and a Champions League aberration

1628122941_Nov2034.thumb.PNG.7da986f6cd9eb7cdb46f2f8be2f38da3.PNG

which sees us end the month top of the Serie A table, still 5 points clear

500777258_Nov2034table.thumb.PNG.c9de7c1e0fcddf0d58831dfa81cbb4cb.PNG

and we're second in our Champions League group, with one game to go. Only a win over Toulouse in France will guarantee progress. Having lost to Toulouse and Atletico Madrid, if we were to draw with Toulouse, we would be eliminated if Atletico beat Leipzig

We had a perfect December, winning six out of six in the league, plus our final Champions League group game

1254606922_Dec2034.thumb.PNG.48a3dc69a1434002ed5be14b13607205.PNG

leaving us 11 points clear in Serie A, Atalanta still our nearest challengers

1905032601_Dec2034table.thumb.PNG.524e1ea3d964f11ddd4c577776e1c3b3.PNG

and finished top of our Champions League group too. Sadly, we've been rewarded with Real Madrid in the next round

January was another perfect month

1486566131_Jan2035.thumb.PNG.05edc20fec3bb44f6929b7b47c358712.PNG

and we are now a massive 14 points clear, with 17 games to play. It's not done yet, but it's definitely ours to lose from here

593631222_Feb2035.thumb.PNG.976843f7a42407f506fa3de54ecc9864.PNG

but we remain well clear at the top of Serie A, and unbeaten in the league still

643892415_Apr2035.thumb.PNG.0b47795e97e12ee88796fb0f9acb1f4c.PNG

and we are now just a point away from guaranteeing the title, with two months still to go

934769893_May2035.thumb.PNG.8cd711a047d20e5ca94c3638706eae01.PNG

We've made a couple of signings in the summer transfer window

386529558_TransfersAug2035.thumb.PNG.61ae782837ba4881f09d06c64d584b48.PNG

Kawaya is a right back, and will definitely be first choice

Kawaya.thumb.PNG.b8d77346aa4605bf1898b0dc98d867b3.PNG

and Hamoudan is a left back

Good luck with Dortmund!

I have to ask - you've had a much better run than in previous saves when you seemed to hit one piece of crap fortune after another!  Is there anything in particular you've done differently this time around?

Yes. Been better at picking the right club to join, and I've been reading the tactics forums. I'd never got a 4-2-3-1 to work until this save, but it is working now :)

September was unbeaten, and very nearly perfect

We end the month top of the Bundesliga

1933035904_Oct2035.thumb.PNG.051f0f9920b981590d36ed57e557e552.PNG

1967460623_Oct2035table.thumb.PNG.1e29810c79144497bce2054c41a0ce10.PNG

November was pretty near perfect, as we won all 5 of our games, and conceded just 1 goal

653711160_Nov2035.thumb.PNG.7c6a173223983e3b79657981d39593cd.PNG

Giving us a 6 point lead in the Bundesliga

953757999_Nov2035table.thumb.PNG.50b71fbc40d9bae386358463688b4245.PNG

and needing to beat Chelsea at home to win our Champions League group. We can go all out for the win, as we've qualified already, as have Chelsea. The other match in the group is a dead rubber, as Shakhtar are guaranteed third and a Europa League spot, and Panathinaikos will finish bottom.

December was unbeaten, but there were dropped points with two drawn games

358438157_Dec2035.thumb.PNG.e1a0648c59b11cb23f03cc4f968c6b2d.PNG

1589487693_Dec2035table.thumb.PNG.834bd64359efafc5cbc2b5385f957739.PNG

Unbeaten in February, but it should have been even better, as we missed not one, but two penalties, in the draw with Sheff Utd

Good stuff so far.  Sounds like you have a similar record with penalties as my Middlesbrough team!

Up to this month it's not been too bad, but we've missed three in a row now, and it's getting costly

If your penalty takers are meant to be good at penalties, and miss 3 in a row, and my GK is..... well I have no idea how good he is meant to be because I haven't bothered to look, and he has scored 13 out of 19 this season and 14 out of 17 last season, then doesn't it stand to reason that whatever it is that determines the results of penalties, it's not the penalty taking attribute.:kriss:

Having read this, I'm going to put my keeper on penalties. Will try to do an update tomorrow night, but might not get there until Tuesday

Good luck. For what it's worth, I also set my GK's to take free-kicks, (not from wide), and he scored 7 this season and 7 last season. That tends to be a better return than outfield specialists too, (but be careful with that because you need to think about a multi-layered defence so you don't get hit from deep).
