A great new site, a new blog.
Guessing you aren't retarted you probably know which team I have chosen to turn into an amazing team (at least that what I'm hoping for).
My assistant told me that the squad was surely good enough to stay in the Barclays Premier League, despite the good news he told me that my defense was the weakest part of my formation, particularly the right back position needed strenghtening. My best player was Danny Murphy who was already attracting attention from some big sides such Newcastle, Aston Villa and Tottenham. I only got â‚¬3 million to spend but I felt that if a good bid came in for Murphy it would be a lot higher.
Immediatly I went out shopping for a right back and stumbled across Volodymyr Yezerskiy. I loaned him with an option to make his transfer permanent for â‚¬1 million. I also loaned Marek Stech as I felt that my backup keeper wasn't good enough to fill in if neccesary. I completed my squad with the signing of Miguel De las Cuevas from Atletico Madrid.
My pre season warm ups were all against small English sides. They were all beaten with ease. I managed to arrange a friendly against Lazio to really test my squad. I was pleased with the 1-1 result even though we dominated the match.
This is my squad just before the start of the season:
Here's my best man:
And new signing:
The Barclays Premier League
I started the season with a difficult away match against West Ham.
West Ham United - Fulham
A good open match with both sides going for the win which ended in the most likely result, a 2-2 draw. I was pleased with the result and so were the fans.
Next followed two home games; one in the Premiership and one in the Carling Cup.
Fulham - Middlesbrough
This match was labelled a relegation battle, but this was no battle. My side tore Middlesbrough apart with a 4-0 victory. Andy Johnson getting all the goals!
Fulham - Cheltenham (Carling Cup)
My backup team got a chance to show that they deserved a first team spot as Giles Barnes got two good goals beating Cheltenham 4-0 too.
Sunderland - Fulham
Not a great match from my side as Sunderland really should have scored a few in the first half as Schwarzer put in a couple great saves. It was CissÃ© who opened the scored with a pile driver from 25 meters out. I made a few changes during the break and they paid off, Bobby Zamore placed his header out of reach form Gordon. We dominated the rest of the match but I think it was fair to share the points.1-1.
Fulham - Stoke
Looking at the statistics this would be good game with Fulham coming out on top. At least, that's what I'm hoping for! Unbelievable game with us running out winners 6-0! Two hat-tricks from Andy Johnson and Bobby Zamora!
Next up a big game against Bolton away from home.
Bolton - Fulham
As I looked at the two line ups I saw that this was surely going to be a hard match with both teams going for the win. It wasn't to be.... Bolton took the lead when Gretar Steinson, the right back(!) decided to give it a go and the next moment he left Schwarzer fishing the ball out of the net... Bolton doubled their lead deep in the second half. 2-0. The scoreline was justified, our teams didn't even deserve a goal from this game which left me very dissapointed with the team effort.
West Bromwich Albion - Fulham (Carling Cup)
I was expecting a lot more from my team this time round so I changed up a few things and gave players some rest. Again the game ended with a 2-0 scoreline..... for us! Great performance from the new signing Yezerskiy and De las Cuevas as we progress to the next round and accomplishing the first goal the board had set for us, the forth round of the Carling Cup! In the next round draq we got Wolves at home which left me feeling good towards the big game on Saturday, Liverpool....
Fulham - Liverpool
Huge match coming up for the fans as we hosted Liverpool to a thrilling match up...
