    Nice improvement on results and glad to see your job is looking more secure. I like the edited photo of the boardroom.

    Have you tried using this site to generate nicknames? http://anu.co.uk/brazil/ Hopefully the new signings can take you to the next level.

    Another win for as corjas








    S1 Match 9 – MG State Championship – v URT (a)




    Easy 3-0 win the lads are going with flow and everything is simple.
    It must be Xavi’s tactical periodisation – repetition idea kicking in

    Xavi



    As explained in the following:

    Viola appointed as Boa coach




    He is not widely known outside of Brazil but was a legend as as striker in his playing days he also was part of the USA 94 Brazil squad and was capped by Brazil 10 times

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viola_(footballer)

    He also has a bit of a temper and is no shrinking violet. As seen when he headbutted a referee in a five a side friendly masters match in 2010…



    Press Conference


    Me: I am sure Viola will bring energy and enthusiasm to the Boa backroom staff and also provided a wealth of experience I am delighted to have him on board.

    Board cancel transfer – Transfer interference

    The board do not let me flog off all players for knock down prices I had an offer of 150k for Pirao who is worth 1.5m.


    I have one person in mind who is to blame Boa’s director of football Rildo.

    Me: Rildo do you not realise that Pirao is out of contract in December anyway and will probably end up going for free anyway?

    Director of football Rildo


    Rildo: Offer no good

    Boa in cup thriller




    S1 R2 L1 v Bahia




    Marques scored four yes you read that correctly “4 goals”. His finishing/Off the ball and dribbling skills are lethal combinations


    Marques





    Marques Attributes




    Marques is that good that I am worried how we will cope should he get injured


    Even more impressively youth signing Antonio scored on his debut!


    Antonio Attributes










    Antonio’s greatest attribute is his dribbling which suits my counter attacking style

    Admittedly the opposition goalkeeper was helpful to the Boa’s cause but even so it was a fantastic result.




    Prsidente Moraes could not resist telling the media how pleased he was with the result


    Presidente Moraes speaks to the media

    Winning streak comes to an end v Tombose






    S1 Match 10 MG State Championship







    The game was tightly balanced at 1-1 and stupidly I went for broke and went all out attack to early and conceded a penalty. It was bad game management on my part.

    Season 1 April Review



    S1 April 1st Finances

    The finances are OK. The club is not in debt according to Roberto’s latest financial report and is still keeping its head above water




    I also decreased the wage bill slightly by selling 37yo keeper Joantas to another club for free.


    S1 League table position after 10 games




    Boa are third in the league


    Board confidence







    S1 April 1st player form – match 10 MG




    S1 April 1st player avg rating – match 10 MG

    Avoided defeat but board still not happy





    S1 Match 11 MG State – Uberlandia (a)





    A draw was salvaged from the jaws of defeat despite this the board was not satisfied. Plus I blooded two young signings from the bench Adilson and Ivan.

    Boa also had 18 shots but only only 8 of them were on target perhaps this was the source of their disappointment? Whereas the opposition had 4 shots and 4 of them were on target.







    Presidente Moraes: a little disappointing





    Even Vivi was a bit bemused by the boards attitude about this result a draw is better then a defeat.

    Young Owls given chance in the cup





    S1 R2 L2 Brazilian cup Bahia (a)




    Ivan (AML), Antonio (AMLR). Aldison (AMFLC) and Dias (FRLC)

    2-2 draw gave young players the chance to show what they could do. Because the tie was going to be hard to lose since the Boa were 5-2 up from the previous tie.

    The Boa show fight

    Very eventful game. Boa were 0-2 down after the first half so I changed to these tactics second half





    Young Antonio scored a brace from the wing played radmares out of position as creative centre back.


    The player behind striker gets free role.




    Press conference

    Boa defeated by America MG side again






    S1 Match 14 State America (h)




    I used the same tactics as the previous game. Unfortunately Chilean keeper Prieto did not have a good game.


    Prieto





    On the plus side Antonio continued his good performances and chipped in with another goal.











    Press conference


    Press: Disappointed?

    Me: In a league where there are only two foreign players permitted in the match sqaud I at least expect some level of consistency from the foreign players named in the match squad

    Third round of Brazilian Cup 1st leg - Late April Finances and Player Performance

    copa do Brasil




    S1 Brazilian Cup R3 L1 Villa Nova (H)



    Goalkeeper Gomes on loan from Watford makes his debut for the boa





    Gomes is as the same level as Prieto so he will provide good competition in the goalkeeper positions.


    I rolled out the 3-4-3 attacking formation again









    1 - 1 draw – because we were unlucky with Gabriel sending off -









    Press Conference






    Me: It was not that bad it could have been worse.

    Cruzerio end any realistic chance the Boa had of winning the Mina Gerais championship






    S1 Match 16 State MG Cruzeiro (h)

    1-3 defeat

    I went for broke with the same 3-4-3 tactics hoping attack would be the best form of defence as I needed the victory to keep our hopes alive.


    Since Cruzeiro have a number of games in hand it does not appear likely.






    They are the kingpins of this championship and they showed why:





    Press Conference



    Press: Unable for the step up in class?

    Me: I believe the players are capable of improving and will show it once they get used to what is expected

    The Bia Back on the winning track





    S1 Match 18 State MG - URT {h)

    Comfortable 4-2 win



    Rolled out 3-4-3 again as the opposition are fairly weak.


    Press Conference







    Me: This team has proven that it knows how to win games it showed today.








    S1 Match 19 State MG Tombense (a)



    3-4-3 tactics again and a comfortable 2-1 victory.




    (SC) Luiz Paulo has really played his way into the squad at this stage.


    Luiz Paulo




    Press Conference







    Me: I hope the team can continue this momentum.

    Tactical experimentation fails




    S1 Match 20 State MG Turpi (a)

    Since the chances of the league are over I decided to try something new.








    These tactics



    resulted in a 3-2 loss




    On the plus side youngster Antonio is continuing his great form with another goal and is proving to be a great find.




    The only problem is that he views the club as a stepping stone to the future so I will need to match his ambition.




    Press Conference






    Press: Disappointed with the result?


    Me: Sometimes unearthing a new talent is important then points on the board. Youngster Antonio has the potential to become a great for the club in the future if he continues to work hard at his game.

    The Boa march on to the Fourth Round the Brazilian cup






    S1 R3 L2 Brazilian Cup Villa Nova (a)




    I played the following tactics










    Later in the game I threw (SC) Kaka on in centre mid in desperation for the winner he played very well.


    Kaka




    Kaka seems to be able to play in a variety of positions


    Another player who had a great game was Davi.




    Davi



    Davi was superb on the left of midfield with two goals






    I threw Luis Paulo up front as striker and dropped Marques back into the floating attacker role behind the striker as he is a FC he has the versatility to play there as well.


    Luis Paulo Santana





    Press Conference




    Press: Reaction?

    Me: I think Boa were fairly fortunate to win the game as it could have gone either way

    Tactics same as previous game 3-1-2-3-1














    Result






    Press Conference

    Me: If I was offered a point at the start of the game I would have taken it. Mineiro are one of the better sides in South America.

    10 men battle against Guarani (a)








    S1 mg state match 22 Guarani (h)


    Same tactics used as the previous game 3-1-2-3-1.



    Resulting in a win despite been a man down after 25 minutes.










    Boa star Marques secured the man of the match award.


    Marques












    While youngster Antonio (AMRL) also continued to shine scoring the first goal.

    Press Conference




    Press: A man down and still win, what was the cause of this?


    Me: A poor referee and plenty of spirit from the lads.

    Season 1 June Boa Review




    Player average rating










    Player form


    [/CENTER]


    League Tables





    Overall league table









    Note that in order to qualify for the final of the State Mina Gerais Championship a club must top the league after the first 11 games in the first period or the second 11 games in the second period.



    S1 First Period MG State Championship Table








    S1 Second Period MG State Championship Table








    Yeah I just figured this out

    But no harm was done despite the fact that I threw one game messing with untried tactics when I thought “The League” was over. It turned out it was in any case. As Boa did neither so did not qualify for the Minas Gerais State Championship final.


    Me: What do you think of that Vivi?

    June Finances Overview











    Roberto threw the accounts on the table the accounts seem OK






    There have some player departures which have lowered the wage bill a little.by removing higher earners or players who have fallen out of favour.






    Although the finances could have been so much better if I had not refused an offer of 2m over 6 months from Gronigen in Holland for Dutra.







    I got greedy and tried to negotiate for 3.4m!
    However, Antlers from Japan are still interested in buying him.

    S1 June overhaul of squad

    Players in




    I signed this veteran left back on a back on a Bosman free, who despite his advancing years can do a job for the team.




    Edu Silva (DL)








    In Thiago Cionek I managed to get a classy centre back
    Cionek is a Polish international centre back was born in Brazil he cost 825k.


    Cionek (DC)





    But he is worth it as quality Brazilian centre backs of quality and value are not easily found. The 30 year old is equally comfortable with both feet and should provide a sense of assuredness, whether in a three/four at the back.


    To partner Coinek in central defence I purchased a Brazilian legend, former Brazil captain and World Cup winner....


    Lucio (DC)










    for a bargain 55k!!



    Lucio has won many honours in his career to date.

    Club


    With Bayer Leverkusen:

    UEFA Champions League Runner-up: 2001–02
    Bayern Munich[44]
    Bundesliga: 2004–05, 2005–06, 2007–08
    DFB-Pokal: 2004–05, 2005–06, 2007–08
    DFB-Ligapokal: 2004, 2007

    With Inter Milan:

    Serie A: 2009–10
    Coppa Italia: 2009–10, 2010–11
    UEFA Champions League: 2009–10
    Supercoppa Italiana: 2010
    FIFA Club World Cup: 2010

    With Juventus:

    Supercoppa Italiana: 2012

    International


    With Brazil:

    FIFA World Cup: 2002
    FIFA Confederations Cup: 2005, 2009
    Lunar New Year Cup: 2005

    Lucio has informed me that the Lunar New Year Cup medal has a pride of place on his mantelpiece.







    Loans in June



    Luke Chambers from Ipswich (DRC)






    Cassiano (FRC) Internacional ideal for free role










    I got yet another loan in the versatile veteran Juisse from Bordeaux. He happens to have a Brazilian nationality can play on the right/left/centre of midfield or as a forward. Which means he can play anywhere in the attacking third.

    Juisse (AM/FRLC)

    Brazilian Cup Fourth Round Leg 1





    S1 L1 Brazilian Cup 4th Round v Mineiro (a)

    Change of tactics to the more defensive 4-2-3-1 formation that is favoured by Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho












    The Boa Were unlucky lost the game 2-1 to a mineiro penalty

    The ever reliable Marques scored for Boa.

    Chambers was disappointing at right back and I will not start him there anymore if possible.
    Cassiano was also poor in the play maker role.


    Press Conference






    Press: Disappointed with the result?


    Me: A little in the manner of the defeat as it was such a close game.

    Press: You played a new formation and played many new loan debutantes was this a wise move?

    Me: I should take some of the blame as I played Chambers at right back, when he is better suited to the right of a back three or as a centre back. It was perhaps too big a game for him to make his debut in before he has properly settled in the club. His morale was also low having not played much football at his previous club Ipswich. But he is a good player with good potential for this club. Jussie has great experience and Cassiano is one for the future.
    I thought the change in tactics provided us with some much needed solidity however it remains to be seen whether this formation will be used regularly. I felt it worked reasonably well given the standard of the opposition.
