Full Time
Manchester City 6-0 HNK Hajduk

Fantastic result against bottom side Hajduk this was such as easy win the best win of the season and two fantastic performances from Star defender Phil Jagielka and young striker Iacopo Cambi with two and fourgoals respectively. With this win it makes me qualify first in Group D ahead of Spanish Giants Real Madrid who finish 2nd

November Update

FC Kobenhavn 2-3 City

WBA 3-1 City

City 3-1 United

City 6-0 Hajduk

A decent month with the only loss against mid-table West Brom but in the other games I did particularly well scoring 13 goals and conceding 6 goals.
i agree with mdlp1991. u need a defensive minded midfielder as all your midfielders are attacking minded.

i personally would have kept Nigel de jong. i feel he is city's most important player becasue he is a beast defensively.
try signing Yann M'villa from stade Rennes
Your attacking force makes every team look easy to beat, can I see how some of your youngsters are developing, just add their attributes page of last and current season. BTW your first game as international manager is not so bad, in my first game as Spain's manager I lost 6-2 against England and let Rooney score 4 times.

A decent result today against Liverpool, a Man Of The Match performance from Liverpool's Andy Carroll who set up and scored a goal in todays draw, I feel it was a good result after I lost belgian playmaker Eden Hazard.

This wasnt the result I was after, it was 1st v 2nd in the Premier League and after this terrible result against Spurs we switch places and I lose my second game of the season, we will have to improve in our next match against Real Madrid in the Champions League

League Cup Semi-Final Draw

Stoke City v Exeter City

Barnsley v Arsenal or Manchester City

With only me and Arsenal as the biggest teams left in the League Cup it is going to be interesting as there are some smaller teams in the cup, with surprising Npower League One Exeter City overcoming the odds and havinga chance to get into the final for the first time in their history, if I beat Arsenal I would love to meet Exeter City but they will have to get through a tough side in Stoke City
after having a look at your World cup draw i would say you should advance with no problem at all as long as u can overcome chile who will be your main threat .

good luck with the world cup . my prediction . Quarter final :)
