2014 - April
I have signed a new contract to keep me with Real Madrid until 2017. I should probably mention I do generally move about in long saves but I will stay at Real Madrid for the story unless I start a new one.
Benfica 2-4 W - The first leg of the Champions League, I really wanted to win here. By half time it was 2-1 to them and the goalscorer Pepe had got himself sent off. We played so much better in the second half depsite only having three at the back. Isco, Bale and Verane got the three second half goals. What a comeback!
Benfica 3-2 W (7-4) W - In this second leg I made no changes apart from bringing in Nacho for the suspended Pepe. We played well with Bale, Ronaldo and Morata getting the goals. The two goals conceded was fairly late on but they was never going to make a comeback!
Champions League Semi Final Draw: Barcelona
Opinion: Well, the other two teams were Manchester United and P$G so there wasn't an easy team and I wasn't expecting one. However, we haven't had a great record against Barca so I guess I would rather the other two teams.
Almeria 6-0 W - A few changes to the team, the most notable was was bringing in Jese for the injured Morata to play in strike. A win which saw us dominate and have a goal blitz. The goals came from Varane, Pepe, Marcelo, Illarramendi and two from MOTM Bale.
Real Sociedad 0-0 D - I rested many players because of the amount of games we have been playing and clearly I rested too many. This was only our second draw all season!
Valladolid 0-6 W - We got back to winning ways with a terrific result. A stunning performance by Ronaldo with four goals to his name, the other two came from Illarramendi and Khedira who unfortunately will be out for about ten days.
Barcelona 4-0 L - So here we go, the champions league Semi-Final! So far this season, our record against Barca consists of two losses, a draw and a win. Morata was still not back from injury and I did not have much faith with Jese so I played Di Maria on the left and Ronaldo in strike. This game was a complete disaster. Believe it or not, the game was fairly even, they was 3-0 at half time and then Messi converted his penalty. Ronaldo and Alonso hit the cross bar in the match just to make things more frustrating. Not one player got a rating of above 6.5.
Osasuna 5-1 W - A nice game which saw us win again. Also, two of the goals was from Oier, yes, two own goals! The other three came from Pepe, Verane and Ronaldo.
Barcelona 3-2 W (3-6) L - Well being already 4-0 down I rested some key players that was desperately in need of one. We was 0-2 down at half time however, we improved and they played poorly which saw Modric, Di Maria and Jese score a goal each. Obviously, we have not made it to the Champions League Final, this will be P$G V Barcelona.
Well that was a lot of games! Obviously, I am disappointed about the Champions League but I just can't seem to handle Barca, that 4-0 thrashing was gutting. Forgetting that though, we have just three league games left and a nine point gap with a +22 better goal difference than Barca so we have won the league... pretty much.
Player of the month: Cristiano Ronaldo
He actually has not been that great this season, at least not Ronaldo great. However, he has picked up in form and has converted many penalties!
