So with the new season dawning new changes had to be brought to the team, holidays of specualtion ravanged my squad with about half of them wanting to leave to better clubs, So I decided on some action to loan out a few of these unhappy players, and to buy some experienced faces and youngsters. I have decided to let people have the 'choose their own futures for the jan transfer window.
In: Baros, Boa Morte, Gary Cahill, Martin Zeman, David Marshall (23 mill)
Out (loan): Martin Zeman (Korona Kielce (feeder club)), Red Devil (Everton), Ben Jenkins (man utd),
My pre-season was fairly uneventfull with a dominant tour in solvenia, and a good win against stuggart but lost against madrid with a late madrid goal, stam played but not notably good though to catch my eye
We drewn lincon city at home in the league cup second round.
Inj: everton 23, Gooner, Henri Page, Monkeyme, Nsane Axeman
The first game was against a spurs side who finished in 8th last season, they have made no big moves since the sale of Lennon to city (10.5mill) last year. A stern test for the scout none the less, I had opted for the diamond formation with red army being a amc, baros partnering Gspot upfront, micah taking the number 1 spot and sun chris partnering cb with Cahill, and Kitanovic playing dm for the first time. Bad Boy and Bole wingers and Enemyz and Brizzels Finest backing up the wingers from RB + LB
Fc Scout looked tentative and slightly nervous about their opening bout in the EPL, Spurs took hold of the nerves and dominated from early on, but Bad Boy was awarded a great chance when he was put 1-on-1 with Gomes but he failed to score. Red_Army got a minor injury moments later and Kiez 77 came on to try to inject a bit of pace into the game, but all it did was slow down spurs onslaught, Gspot got a major injury soon after, and I brought on KPP to play a defensive RM. Jenas broke the deadlock with a great goal from 25 yards out curling in just before half-time. I said a few words and we forced the attacks to stop and it was even but still nothing came through. It was fairly even all the way through, then in the 1st min of injury time KPP cut inside and scored the equaliser to clinch the point for Fc Scout.
Chelsea where the big players they came 4th last season and they where not afraid to try it their all, but fc scouts home avantage took effect and we took the game by the scruff of its neck. Cech made 2 fairly decent saves, before disaster struck. Ivan Kitanonvic scored a header as a own goal against the run of play and we where behind. I played a more attacking game and fc scout chased the game. Barmy was introduced to the game to add a bit more energy, he forced a good save from cech after coming on. He then combined well with Red_army who made a looping shot just inched over by cech. There had been 4 mins of added time for fc scout to equalise the game, our dominance had been huge in the 2nd half with little chelsea attack. Then Barmy pushed over Ballack and the ball was cleared out to Cahill who played it over Kalou, and Kiez 77 beat Rajkovic to the ball, and then did a little lob to Bryn who played a perfectly flighted ball to Barmy who wasn't marked as Ballack was still down, his first touch took him past Ivanovic, and he scored with on the half volley past a flailing Cech to score his first goal in fc scout colours (senior level), in the 91st min. I was extatic
I was then again pissed off:
Youth team did well Barmy 2 Baros 1, Dusan major inury (0 weeks). Marshall in goal
Red Army is the second to leave without my consent for a new reccord 21.5 mill if all clauses met. (to fiorentina)
Goal Scorers: Everton23
Assists: Brizzles Finest
I was still looking for a first league win since fulham scored in the 90th min, It was quite a good game with Kierz 77 conecting well with the other players. Howard kept out a clear cut chance from the scout, so I brought on Barmy Dusan and Bryn on in the 75th min hoping for another sub impact time 10 ins later KPP passed it out wide to Brizzles Finest who crossed it in the Everton23 he took a volley but howard palmed it straight out to Barmy who finished with ease to make that 4 goals in 3 games for the youngster and it won us our first game
Goal scorers: Monkeyme
