It's a Sky Blue World

Recommended Posts

Sep '30

It started well before it went all downhill. The home defeat to Wolves stung the most. But we had a strong start in the UCL and stumbled into next round of League Cup. We are currently totally incapable of holding onto a lead. The poor league position is a concern as I have a Tycoon in charge and no idea how short his fuse is going to be.

Berrada is slowly sparking to life

Oct '30

Started off with a heartbreaking defeat against Real to a 93rd min goal, but two league wins, League Cup progress and a point at Juve makes this probably the best month of the season so far. The negatives was that we led twice against Juve before conceding a late penalty (due to the stupidity of my young CM who lost ball, raced back and hacked down the player who won the ball) and going a man down against chelseas before 20 mins are up and losing by a late cracker.

Berrada still remain in the mix without firing on all cylinders in the league. He has been a cut apart in League Cup and UCL.

Such a promising month ended with 2 bad defeats. We are slowly moving up the ladder, but our strikers are letting us down in key moments. Berrada off the boil and slips out of picture in the golden boot race. The Bablesberg result means we need to match at home to Real what they do at Juve for progress.

Fantastic month where we finally hit our stride and the results an Sh!tty, Pool and Madrid the headline grabbers.

Been a while since I played the game. Had a month from hell at the job... And currently out of a job and in lockdown... So back to FM in the middle of job hunt :)

Jan '31

Month started off well, but we struggled at close. Just about snuck into League Cup final and was dumped out of the FA cup by Manure in the 4th round

Barrada was injured at start, came back in the League Cup SF 1s leg, scored 1 and got promptly injured for the rest of the month. He is way off pace at the moment

We finally hit top form and had 2 cracking wins against top 4 rivals and had a wonderful win in 1st round of UCL KO rounds.

Mar '31

First major trophy and through to the next round in UCL despite a very flat performance in Germany made this a decent month. We nearly mucked up the entire month by two pretty awful performances against Pool and Boro. But a decent fight back against Boro in the last 5 mins turned around the mood at the club.

I think we can concede the golden boot race with erstwhile Norwegian wonderkid having double the goal tally of Barrada with 8 games to go and my ace drawing a blank despite playing all the matches.

What a month.... We have 1 foot in the CL fnal with probably the most impressive performance in this save from one of my teams.

We let Barca have the ball and went dorect and their defence had a torrid time

The architect behind our storming run have been my young Italian striker who has had a very underwhelming start to the first one and half seasons in his Sky Blue career. He found the perfect time to spark into life as my main striker's season was derailed by injuries and horrid form

Season Close 2030-31

A stunning second half to the season sees us pipping Sh!tty and Gunners  to 4th place in the league and we have a cracker coming up against Real. After the solid performance against Barca, that doesn't seems too daunting now

Broke our transfer record... World class defender.. Can cover all defensive positions... And English... And the best part is that we pry him from Sh!tty.

Summer Wheeling & Dealings

a60ac1ca91d9edd0cd63edfc53a6945d.png

Teams came in with silly money for my starting Left back, Center Back and my back up right winger. I had plenty of cover in those positions and the cover are mostly young and English. So off they went.

Barca made a push for my lower league hero who was coming from his worst season so far and I have few youngsters knocking on the door, so I decided to cash in. This was the only move I sanctioned with some doubt.

Inter Milan threw a spanner in the works for us when they made a ridiculously low bid for my starting GK and he threw a hissy fit. The talk didn't go well and I listed him out and accepted all offers except from Inter. He opted for West Ham of all the places

Raided Babelsberg for the replacement. He was a youngster I had brought in during my reign there and he had developed really well, taking over the no:1 position there and for England and he had a min fee clause that was expiring soon. A younger keeper at a lower price who was rated by staff as a like for like replacement made this a no-brainer.

The season started with a bang thanks to Berrada hat-trick on opening day. Was a solid start to the campaign compared to last season but the Super cup loss along with the tepid performance at home against Liverpool threatened to ruin the good work. The spectacular away performance at Gunners ensured that we had a memorable start to the season

Couple of outstanding months for the team. We are in the title race and a point at home to Roma should see us through in UCL from a tough group.

Defense of the League Cup came to a painful end at Sh!tty as I kept faith with my reserve/fringe players and we came up against a full strength opponent. Decent form in league, including payback against Sh!tty, meant we are firmly in the Title Challenge and we are through in UCL where Villareal waits.

The surprise is Reid, who is one of my players who has never played for us yet. He became a full German International this year and the 21 yo would be forcing me to make some tough decision next season.

The treble is on. We have a 1 point lead in the league, 1 goal lead in CL SF and a FA cup final to look forward to in a frantic final month coming up. The road block is that 2 of our 3 games left in the league is away at Liverpool and home to Manure :(

May '32

We almost imploded with a thrashing at Liverpool and going down a goal against Manure. But the team showed resilience in bouncing back against the thrashing and also immense character to fight back and get the immense win against Manure. A nail biting FA cup final and a tense win against PSG completed a fantastic month and season. There are some major changes in the making for next season with two of my midfield orchestrators moving on (one for a series of awful performances culminating in a 5th min sending off against Liverpool and another for an absurd amount of money from Maure).

The main reason why I decided to cash in was the emergence of this youngster. He was  getting regular glowing reports on performance while on loan at Juventus for the season.

Transfers

It was mostly about trimming the squad. Only major incoming was the young CM I had mentioned earlier from Arsenal. Now we have a strong English core to the squad and we can almost name a fully English squad if required (if i include a youth striker and winger i.e.)

c7836e105a867d33b25185ac821b20fc.png

And this was the midfielder that nearly cost us the League.

62a4a2dc5f408d88389a04dca68e95f7.png

Got a decent fee, but he could have been a mainstay for our squad. He threw a hissy fit after I fined him after the dismissal in the epic loss.
