a good start to the season, and you're making up that lost ground quickly: your signings seem to have gelled well also.

Your CL group shouldn't be too tough, but Olympiakos might pose a bit of a problem for you

good luck!

Interesting concept! Out of interest where have the Barca players ended up?

Where are they now?

Due to high request I've decided to do a collage of the players that were released by Barcelona after going into Administration - It's not a complete list, Lionel Messi & Neymar have yet to find a team due to their extreme demands I reckon, while others like Pinto & Puyol might be deemed to old for others.

I don't see many surprises, Iniesta was given the number 7 kit at the Old Trafford, while Xavi & Mascherano returned to Anfield Road... So romantic.

I almost feel like I've done a good deed letting them go, as they say if you love her...

Here's the September update with match results listed. Guardiola starts well, with Dani Nieto in form scoring quite a few this month. We got the first 3 points in Champions League against possibly the major threat in the group, but after beating Atletico in the Spanish Super Cup this August... They came back and hit us harder, I guess they wanted to remind us to keep our feet on the ground.

Our League Position at the moment is 12th, with 8 points! (Would be 18 points & in 2nd place with 1 point behind Real Madrid if it wasn't for -10 point deduction at start of season).

The Player of the Month? Dani Nieto. Although it was hard to choose since Ruben Garcia kept his form, and Edu Bedia played quite well aswell.

Guardiola announces Alex Grimaldo will be out due to a twisted ankle for approximately 3-4 weeks, or a Month. This was due to the high strains caused in the last match, and now the club find themself down to bare bones on the left wing back position, with only Patric being to substitute this position, although not being a "natural" player for it.

This might pose a bit of a problem for the fixtures ahead, Real Sociedad, Sevilla, Valencia etc. Let's hope not!

Nice graphic, shame about the injury :/ His career was ruined by injury on mine, hope it's not the same for you.

This month started a bit slow, but ended with plenty of satisfaction for Guardiola. Lots of Goals, and improvements from my players. Grimaldo came back from his injury after just 3 weeks thankfully and I put him back as fast as I could to catch him up on his match fitness conditions, risking it a bit to be honest but it worked for the best since he scored aswell! Picking a player of the month wasn't easy, but I think given how Edu Bedia is my highest avg. rated player he can take this month without regrets.

The League Tables looking better now:

Remember: We started off with -10 points, and we're in Champions League range for next year... The Board should be more than happy with this result.

As for Champions League, Qualified for Knockout stages quite early in October is always good - this will allow for giving my least used players and youngest Barca B youth some game time (although qualifying 1st would be better, so I won't have to face off against some titanic teams right away).
