Season 1 Part 2





Managers Notes


This run of games, the lads have shown me what they can do. I feel we will be staying up this season. However i'm still weary about our defence at times. But in many games the defensive blunders have been covered by our fast couter attacking football.
Next up we welcome our rivals Leeds to Oakwell
Sucks seeing you get shutout. Hopefully in the next update there are greens and yellows only

If some of the loses were draws id say we were in for a title challenge

Leeds United


Welcome to Oakwell for this mouth-watering Yorkshire clash, where inform Barnsley take on rivals Leeds. Here’s how the teams line up:
Barnsley – Davies, Janko, Sheaf, Roberts, Yiadom, James McGinn, Watkins, Appiah, Kent, Armstrong

Leeds – Green, Ayling, Jansson, Vann, Taylor, Bridcutt, O’Kane, Dallas, Roofe, Pedraza, Antonsson

1’ Leeds get the game underway
2’ Early chance for Leeds as Roofe rattles the post from close range
42’ Watkins is dispossessed in the middle of the park by Antonsson who makes a storming run through the standing Barnsley defence, however the attack comes to nothing
45’ A clearance from Davies sees the man in the middle blow the whistle and signal for half time


HT A dull first half here with Leeds having the better of the chances to take the lead

46’ Armstrong gets this game back underway
58’ Leeds substitution sees Sacko enter the action replacing Dallas
67’ Double substitution for Barnsley as james and McGinn leave the field and are replaced by Mowatt and Scowen
71’ Double substitution for Leeds as Roofe and Antonsson make way for Vieira and Wood
89’ A testing cross from Yiadom is claimed by an on-rushing Green sees the best chance of the second half
92’ Chris Wood has the final chance of the game as he scuffs his shot from the edge of the 18-yard box wide


FT An evenly matched game is fairly represented by the 0-0 score line, both teams had chances to take the lead however poor finishing meant the teams will share the spoils
So many chances there but with all those losses you had early on this draw doesn't seem so bad.
Come on, get that promotion :)

Season 1 Part 3




Managers Notes

It has been another run of amazing games, with only one loss i think were improving as a team after every game. Were still up top with the big boys but anything is possible and the championship is always a well open league.
Next up we welcome Chelsea to Oakwell in a FA cup 3rd round match. This is our chance to show everyone what we can do and cause a giant killing!
Well, I hope you win over CH€£$€A
Much better results there man
Great month, very much overachieving with Barnsley. You're staying up, so there's the aim done already so perhaps the next aim is to keep on doing what you're doing and remain in the playoffs.
