    Loved this challenge.

    Found it surprisingly easy getting through the leagues, think I set up my tactic well.

    Even when I made it to Serie A was straight into the Champions League places. Took my fourth attempt to actually win the league though!

    First year in Champions League did really well in the first group stage but ended up drawing Bayern, Barca and United in the second, so didn't make it through there. Next year I really fancied my chances had easier groups and then drew Marseille in the quarters, had had them in the first group stage and over the two matches edged it, but lost both legs of the tie. Finally though, the following year I'd picked up a few good players in the off season and it was enough to go all the way, got through a tough second group stage, Real topped the group and I edged out United and Bayern, and beat Serville and Milan on my way to meeting Real again in the final. Our two group games earlier had both been home wins (2-0 us, 3-1 them) so figured it'd be close, and the team weren't playing well, hadn't scored in 4 games, including the Cup final second leg, but surprisingly ran away 3-0 winners!

    Have a nice little team going now, stadium capacity of 17,050, money in the bank - don't want to give them up!

    Oh it was 2008 by the time we won the Champions League!

    Only draw or lost during the last 5 matches. Provided that we have just 60 points, i'm satisfied with 3rd place in Serie A

    Spoiler!


    Pre-season#5, Shock retirement of Taibi (His handling was 20 when he retired, it was about 11 when i signed him.) and Abbiati. While stadium has been expanded traning facilities need major investment.

    Makes a nice change to the usual story of the AI having one shot and winning despite you dominating.
