    @CrazyNinja Yes, have been thinking of taking a Wenger approach on the game, trying to look only for bargains and such. Planning on setting up some rules for my next campaign on several things. And thank you very much for your vote, appreciate it.

    Carling Cup hunt


    Carling Cup
    3rd Arsenal 2-0 Sunderland
    4th Birmingham 0-3 Arsenal

    Semi Arsenal 4-1 Hull
    Semi Hull 1-1 Arsenal

    The top man?



    Now that the season are well on its way there is a player rising up and showing he wants to make something of himself in the club, the new signing Lucio has started striking goals and very rapidly. Lucio has managed to take the no 1 spot on the list of top goalscorers, so is looking good now that the Premier League is coming to an end, maybe he will win it?




    Premier League
    Arsenal 7-0 West Ham
    Arsenal 6-0 Burnley
    Q.P.R. 0-1 Arsenal
    Aston Villa 2-2 Arsenal
    Arsenal 4-0 Newcastle
    Liverpool 1-0 Arsenal
    Bristol City 1-4 Arsenal




    Had a good week in there too, managing to get many of my players in the team of the week, a great achievement in my eyes this one. It also got me the manager of the month.

    Quad season review


    The end of a fantastic season is here, has been a season with trouble in the injury department, James Dick went out early with a big injury in the season that was supposed to be the season where he would break records in the club, the result ended very different as Lucio was his replacement while he was on the physio table. What a replacement Lucio ended up being, scoring goals in heaps and when not scoring goals he was often the mastermind behind them putting in beautiful crosses. In the defensive department there was also injuries, but since i reinforced my squad here well I had no trouble there, especially since Courtois had yet another fantastic season guarding the net.

    Premier League

    The Premier League started with mixed emotions having lost to Tottenham but also being victorious against Manchester United twice in short succession easilly put my Tottenham result in the acceptable bag, take a good look at my games here, are some gems in there.



    Premier League
    Tottenham 2-1 Arsenal
    Arsenal 2-0 Manchester United
    West Brom 3-3 Arsenal
    Arsenal 2-0 Blackpool
    West Ham 0-5 Arsenal
    Arsenal 2-0 Q.P.R.
    Burnley 1-2 Arsenal
    Arsenal 2-0 Aston Villa
    Arsenal 3-0 Liverpool
    Newcastle 4-1 Arsenal
    Arsenal 4-1 Bristol City
    Manchester City 1-1 Arsenal
    Arsenal 2-0 Wolves
    Stoke 0-2 Arsenal
    Arsenal 3-0 Chelsea
    Blackburn 0-2 Arsenal
    Sunderland 2-3 Arsenal
    Arsenal 3-0 Birmingham
    Arsenal 2-0 Everton
    Arsenal 0-1 Tottenham
    Manchester United 1-3 Arsenal
    Arsenal 3-0 West Brom
    Blackpool 0-2 Arsenal
    Arsenal 7-0 West Ham
    Arsenal 6-0 Burnley
    Q.P.R. 0-1 Arsenal
    Aston Villa 2-2 Arsenal
    Arsenal 4-0 Newcastle
    Liverpool 1-0 Arsenal
    Bristol City 1-4 Arsenal
    Arsenal 2-0 Manchester City
    Wolves 2-2 Arsenal
    Arsenal 4-0 Stoke
    Chelsea 1-4 Arsenal
    Arsenal 5-2 Blackburn
    Birmingham 2-3 Arsenal
    Arsenal 5-1 Sunderland
    Everton 0-2 Arsenal

    With this set of fantastic results it has come to become a glorious season in the Premier League, taking away the trophy for the 2nd time in a row, filling up the trophy cabinet at the Emirates. If you take a look at my goal difference you will see that my ofense and defense has truly worked this year, even tho there was a few stumbles I still managed to knock the entire Premier League with a 13 point margin, a massive margin that shows who is the team to fear.




    Bringing you some stats here from my own team, these stats are just for the Premier League. These stats truly shows who dominated up front for me, what a season!

    Carlng Cup


    With the Carling Cup trophy in hand the Gunners have themselves the double this season! The trophy hunt this season has certainly gone great. Even tho there wasn't the best oposition for me this year around in this tournament I still had a tough challenge in the final against Manchester City who put up a good fight.

    3rdArsenal 2-0 Sunderland
    4thBirmingham 0-3 Arsenal
    QtrArsenal 4-0 West Ham

    FinalManchester City 1-2 Arsenal




    FA Cup

    With having glory in the FA Cup last season I was eager to get it this year too, with having some tough games, first against Liverpool who Lucio edge the winner from in the 88th minute. Also the game against Manchester City seemed to become very hard, first giving away a penalty in the 63rd minute witch let Aguero give City the lead before the teams savior, yet again, Lucio, who clinched a draw in the 87th minute letting it go to extra time. In overtime in the first half of extra time Bongumba hammered home a goal letting the gunners into the FA Cup final.

    The final against Norwich went as a stroll, with Solaberrieta and Wilshere standing out and leaving the game in the red side of the stadium at 4-0. The treble is a fact at Emirates Stadium!

    6thLiverpool 3-2 Arsenal
    SemiManchester City 2-3e Arsenal
    FinalNorwich 0-4 Arsenal





    Champions League

    Champions League came off to a bumpy start with edging the 2nd place in the group just by 1 point over Basel. When coming into the knockout stages the team started showing what they were made of, brushing aside Besiktas and Manchester United quite easy without the bib bumps on the road. The more challenging part came when we were guests at Shakhtar, they held us to a draw witch made me worried that away goals would end up being the decisive factor, but the Gunners pulled trough.

    The final left us with At. Madrid, reunion from the group stage where I was incapable of beating them. This time around I ended up being more fortunate and edging the final with one goal giving Arsenal a quadruple trophy catch this season, simply an astonishing season out of this world!
