Thanks very much :)

Thanks alot :)

For my first tactic I have decided to pick the 4-3-3 counter mentality and fluid fluidity.
I pick two wingers to spread the play and also cut in and help the lone striker when in need.

Second tactic will be the 4-5-1 with the Attacking mentality and the fluid fluidity.
I want to dominate in the midfield and have a lot of the ball, I want my three AM's and striker to tear apart any defence in the league and in any competitions.

I will be doing monthly updates from now on instead of writing random stuff as i found it easier to read and more appealing :)
Interesting tactics decisions I really want to see how that variation of 4-3-3 works since I like to use 2 wingers and 3 CM's...

Manager Notes

We played outstanding throughout the whole match, I was a little upset with the defence and since it was our first game i may look to bring in some solid centre-backs, but im overly pleased with the lads, good win :)

Turned out quite well at the moment, still unbeaten i may have to try 3 CM's!
Thanks for the comment :)
July Update

Monthly Evaluation

Overall a decent month 4 wins and a loss, doesn't seem to bad does it ? the lads are playing well and im content with them at the moment, there is a few things we need to work on to improve but we will improve and im confident in the boys that they will continue this good form.

August Update

What a Month!

Im very please with the lads over august, unbeaten in 10 games in all competitions and unbeaten in 5 games in the league, their confidence is sky high and the form will continue, we have qualified for the CHAMPIONS LEAGUE group stages! an unbelievable achievement for the club and me and the board are very happy indeed.

Champions League Group

Im very nervous about the group its a tough challenge which the boys are up for! can we qualify ? who knows...
September Update

September has been a decent month for us, we really stood out in the 12-1 win there really wasn't anything i could say that was disappointing about the game winning 4 out of 6 games was very pleasing, drawing one and losing one wasn't, we should of won against Olomouc but we're struggling with injures at the moment.

Drawing against one of the best teams in the world Manchester United was a great achievement we played very well, opening the scoring in the 67th minute and then conceding late in the 90+2 from a phil jones header.

Couldn't have asked for more :)

(Im in december on my save)
12-1 in the cup?? Nice!!

And great result against MUFC :)
Amazing result vs Man Utd, well done ^.^ Really nice story so far :D
