So guys I've decided I'm going to go with the team Málaga C.F., S.A.D. in the league LIGA BBVA, hope you enjoy my story.

Málaga C.F., S.A.D.: A Background

Founded in 1948, Málaga C.F., S.A.D. are a professional Spanish club currently playing in the LIGA BBVA. The club

play their home games at La Rosaleda and possess good training facilities and adequate youth facilities. The club also

has average junior coaching and an above average youth recruitment network. The club is affectionately known as Los

Boquerones and retains a fierce rivalry with Sevilla F.C., S.A.D. and Real Betis B., S.A.D..

The club enjoyed probably their best spell of success during the 1970s. Although now enduring a twelve year barren

spell, having not won a competition since 1999, Los Boquerones still have a history of which they can be justly proud.

Málaga won the Spanish 2nd tier in 1988 and 1999 and finished runners-up on five occasions, won the Spanish 3rd tier

for the only time in 1998, and won the Spanish 4th tier for the only time in 1995.

My season exceptations

Well, A nice transfer kitty of £21.21m, not bad at all, but I dont feel it will go far enough, I feel there is alot of room for

improvement to finish in a Europa League spot, I certainly feel I will need to invest in a new GK.

Team at a glance
Well looking at the team how it is now:

I feel at the back, we have solid CB's and a solid RB, but its the LB position thats left me worrying, possible signings

ideas would be great guys.

The midfield, well im looking to play a nice 4-2-3-1 formation with either 2 Cm's or DM's either way i feel Toulalan

needs someone to play alongside as I feel Camacho wont be able to do the job but this will be confirmed in


Attacking Midfielders, This is where it looks promising and can see these guys bagging in the goals and assists,

Joaquin, Baptista and of course Santi Cazorla, this will be the main life of the team, Need a back up option though, if i

lose one of these guys it wont be good.

Strikers, well Ruud Van Nistelrooy certainly has goals in him but whether he still does now at this age is remained to be

season, Solomon Rondon and Sebastian Fernandez dont look to be Europa league strikers never mind La Liga top 6

strikers, I suppose they will make decent cover and hopefully will bang in the goals, Looking for a new striker aswell.


Well this worries me, one or two years left in some of these and these are some important players for me, i will need to

be bringing in some youth into this side.

Star Man
Santi Cazorla

Well looks like we've got a cracking player on our hands here, he will be vital in our push for europa league, lets hope

he stays match fit as looking at the team the way he is, Santi and our attacking midfield will have to run the show.

Looking at the team there is definately improvement needed, whether I will need to offload a couple of players is yet to

be seen. Im looking for you guys to recommend me some cheap quality signings that arent too old for my team.

Thanks for reading so far guys, yes I know I am not the best of writers for stories and this is my first one in the 4 years

I've been here. Hope you enjoy.

Pre-season results up tonight
Sorry for the late update guys!

Pre Season
Ive had a good pre-season, won all my games, werent very hard fixtures really sampdoria was a challenge and i was delighted with the outcome, Even though Sampdoria are a Serie B team i feel they have a quality team and will be straight back into Serie A so thats why im happy.


Transfers so far:

these will be it for this window, Im hoping to sign sturridge after his loan but i highly doubt this will happen, Bressan is a quality player for 1M cheap and worth it, Kameni solved my Keeper problem after i activated his cheap 5.25m release clause, Javi Garcia was brought in to solve my DM area but sadly got injured for 3 months in his second game, i brought in Diarra as cover until he is back.

Bringing in Diarra wasnt a popular choice with Bressan as he feels there is too many players able to play in his position and i agree but many of these players that play there arent there first position EG: Cazorla and Duda.

Tactic and Fixtures

Sturridge, Gamez and Kameni have been performing well so far, Delighted with them. My tactic of 4-2-3-1 has been a success in pre-season even though i havent had full squad out apart from the game against Sampdoria, i have a tough opening fixture against the mighty Sevilla, away aswell and Im hoping to take a point out of that game, It wont be a good start to my career losing that as the 2 clubs have a fierce rivalry, after that game i am hoping to rack up some points against Granada and Mallorca, These 3 games will set me off for an interesting season!

Will update after ive played September !
Story looks great so far mate , keep it up!
Quick Update:
Javi Garcia - 3 Months with Torn Ligaments
Joaquin - 3 Weeks Hamstring(i think)

Julio Baptista - 1 Game, 2 Yellows, Issued Warning

Transfer Request:
Bressan - Reject. Promised to sell some players, personally thought i fulfilled, apparently not

Recent Matches:
Sevilla 3 - 3 Malaga : Oh yes we got a point, more detail coming soon!
can I just have 25-players only? if so I will tell some of my players where the door are.
also starting with malaga, target is to take over the league from barca&real. Within 3 years i should have won la liga.

Is Bressan worth the money and what posisition is he best in?
if u play nistelrooy. make sure u play him as a poacher he doesnt miss from inside the box
Any chance you could upload your tatic on please? just about to start one and your tatic seems good like to give it a try much appreciated good luck anyway

Some nice signings, great story! But cazorla should be used as centre attacking midfielder :)
Rondon becomes a beast!! give him game time !
