Interesting to see how effective you are against 'weaker' sides, yet haven't yet been able to best a 'better' side like Spurs, Liverpool or Manchester City. Be interesting to hear about how you're going to address that tactically, in terms of what changes you'll make going forwards?
2020-12-01 21:53#279495 ScottT : You can certainly expect goals with Carrick's United!
Yes, so far we have been scoring a lot. I think it also has to do with a player like Bruno scoring a lot of freekicks and ofc penalty!


2020-12-02 16:41#279540 TheLFCFan : Good start to an interesting challenge. Leon King looks great this year and is developing nicely in my Rangers team, I hope you can develop him well and he gets some game time in a few years time. As for the results, seems to be going well, especially that thumping of Southampton!
Yes, I find the first hours of my save looking at players from The United Kindom, especially Scotland where i believe there is more talent than in Northern Ireland.
Maybe in a season or two, he has what it takes, I hope so!

It's a nice thing that I can just win the games I'm favorite in (so far at least), that's now always the case in my first season at Manchester United.
I have a thing where I'm happy as long as I don't lose the tough game away from home. You could be called Mourinho for that inspiration. But it means we stand a little deeper on the field and waiting for the opponent coming, so we can strike them on the counter-attack with our very fast players.
Also, the more games you play without the first loss, the more you want to keep things that way. That could also be the reason for Carrick to play the top 5 games that way.

The busiest month of the year, we did only play 9 games, 6 in the league, 2 in the Champions league & 1 in the Carabao Cup. All through I think we did great, we still lost our first game. But you have to give some credit to Carrick for going all the way to boxing day, before losing a game. Arsenal was the far better team, they were up 2-0 after 80 min, we then scored to 2 quick goals and was hoping to get one point back home to Manchester. But Saka wanted it all 3 points for Arsenal scoring in the 90+4' minute to make it 3-2. Also, a "tough" away game to Leicester, where we again got 1 point before some great wins against Newcastle, Crystal Palace, Burnley, and Fulham scoring 4 goals in all 4 games.

In the Champions League aka Cavani Cup, we win the last 2 games, which means we won all 6 games in the group stage using the reserves mostly. That's one nice achievement if I have to say it myself.

I think we gonna start this update with some transfer news!
Nothing big, but I got rid of Sergio Romero & Nemanja Matic. Romero is going to Dynamo Moskva for €5M, meanwhile, Matic is joining Real Sociedad for €15M.
Again a busy month for Manchester United, where we played 8 games! In the Premier League, everything worked out fine, not to forget that 2-2 goal by Pogba in the 90+8 minute!
In the FA Cup we ended up having problems with Luton, but we won the game and then beat Leicester.
Bad luck... Fernandes and Pogba, our two superstars could not score on the penalties, then we don't have the luck.

A good string of results. You've just got to keep it up and hope Liverpool slip!

A little update here between christmat and new years eve for everyone!
A very fine month in the league, only sad thing is Chelsea really stole that point in the last minute. But that's just how it goes, sometimes you lose points in the last minutes, and sometimes you win them, as in the away game in Southampton.
Van De Beek with a hattrick against Spurs, where he played in Bruno's position as number 10.

A tough away game in Madrid, where I hoped to take a draw home to Manchester but ended up losing 1-0 after a freekick from Felix.
