    And it was going so well...



    The Board huff and puff; Zakkery gets mad; Robinho cries; Moral goes down; Results start to slide; Hard work ahead...

    So the season has finished. I managed to nurse the team to the end of the season without getting the chop!

    Signings;



    Bellamy did a great job. He scored some important goals, bagged a few assists and became a fans favourite.

    Barry was the players player (inspired leader quotes from most of the team) though was too inconsistent for 20m. He scored Goals from midfield, took my penalties and was my Capt. Unfortunately a form player, so when we were loosing he was hiding.

    Ashley Young did OK. He didn't score many (3) but chipped in with a lot of assists. 18m way over the odds...

    Sol Campbell - disaster!! He was terrible!! I had Christian Zapata ready, fee, terms and WP, but my transfer funds disappeared on me! I couldn't raise cash quick enough and the delays were knocked back by Udinese. Campbell was cheaper option and panic-buy. 5m. I ended up dropping him in favour of Onouha after 10 games!

    Tactics;



    I took my successful GreNoLi 3-5-3 and pushed the wing backs up front. I had the LF and RF tracking back as much as the tactics would allow (without a back arrow). Hence Bellamy left and Young right for their work rate.

    Premiership - 5th Place



    I did manage to get a decent run together in October and was in 2nd, two points behind leaders Utd. However it wasn't to last, and we slowly went backwards.

    What tells the biggest story was our form against the Top Four - Played 8: Lost 8….

    UEFA Cup - 4th Round



    I was actually lucky to survive my first Intertoto cup qualifier against Frankfurt! We were comfortable beaten 3-1 away, and had to dig in for a win.

    Milan was a step too far for a team shipping goals!

    FA Cup - Runners Up

    Some of our best football was played in the FA Cup. We managed to take Arsenal to extra time after a 1-1 draw, but in the end it was comfortable for them. We didn't look like winning the game, so i was hoping for Penalties!



    Manager Awards:



    Goals: 138

    Jo was immense all season. 42 goals. He scored 7 in 7 in opening European games and 10 in 8 in the opening Premier League games. He had a slump in form around Christmas, but was firing again in the run-up to the end of the season.

    Points:

    Premiership 5th - 100 points
    FA Cup finallists - 250 points
    Manager of the Month Awards - 50
    Goals - 138
    Total - 538

    Think i will try this one again in a few weeks…..

    Clearly, If one GK,DEF, or MID is senting off, I have to keep on with my 5 FW?

    This 13th try is the good one!
    Never sacked like this! 12 times!!!
    I don't like this challenge. When you are sure that you have created the best non-WIBWOB tactic you can, when you are sure of your 4 players, you need only chance. Very unstable tactic...Tactic tested with DeGraaschaaft. 55,7 pts per season (37-67 for the extremes).
    I finish the screenshots and will post the results soon. Go to Challenge 3 and America del Sur!!! Leaving the rain of Manchester and his f*** challenge to el sol of Buenos Aires y Boca J.!!!
