I think I maybe have something going here..
Pre-Season Game #1
Wycombe Wanderers 0 - 4 Newcastle United
My first Pre-Season game was against a very strong Newcastle United squad.We got forward on a couple of occasions.
Harper-Penman had a couple of decent efforts from range, one Tim Krul had to save, the other skimmed the.. I would say
crossbar, but I think it actually clipped the top of the stadium, haha. They went 3-0, there third goal had them, sitting
out my box struggling to break down my defence before Guthrie crossed from deep to go 3-0 up. Full-Time result: 4-0
Pre-Season Game #2
Wycombe Wanderers 0 - 2 Arsenal FC
Arsenal played there best team in this game. Given me no chance. The final result was 2-0. Arsenal's first goal was
a ball played through to Arteta who broke through about 3 of my defenders to score. There 2nd goal came from a scrap before
the ball was cleared against my defender and put RVP clean through on goal. My only bit of good play came right at the end,
the ball was crossed from Harper-Penman, no one got on the end of it, Basey swung it in again and it was headed clear.
Pre-Season Game #3
Burton Albion 5 - 1 Wycombe Wanderers
This game was one I really had to be winning which I didn't. I got hammered. Nuff said.
Pre-Season Game #4
Wycombe Wanderers 3-1 Aston Villa
Bloody Classic! Aston Villa were playing there best squad too. 3-0 at half-time. Heskey pulled it back to 3-1 after sloppy
defending from my side. A great 3-1 victory.
Pre-Season Game #5
Salibury 1-5 Wycombe Wanderers
A neat 5-1 victory over a team in the league below me. I had the assistant take this friendly as I was busy with Ivory
Pre-Season Game #6
Wycombe Wanderers 1-1 Hull City
I wasn't present at this game either, a very nice 1-1 draw with a strong Championship side(I'm so unbias).
Pre-Season Game #7
Wycombe Wanderers 2-0 VW Hamme
A Belgian third tier side, who I felt we needed to be beating with ease, I wasn't at this game as I was tied down with Ivory Coast U23s.
A good 2-0 victory and stats showed I dominated in possession. Pleasing indeed.
The Olympic Games
The Group I have been given was with Australia, Belarus and Mexico. I really should be going through from this group.

Group Stage Results:
Australia U23's 1-5 Ivory Coast U23's
Lacina Traore first half hat-trick had a big part to play in this 5-1 victory. Yaya Toure got a goal in the 2nd half which was followed
by a 90th minute finish from Traore once again.
Ivory Coast U23's 2-0 Belarus U23's
2-0 up at half-time. A Goh-Bi double was enough to put my U23 side through to the Quarter final.
Ivory Coast U23's -02 Mexico U23's
It was all Mexico, there defence was solid and confident. My team struggled at breaking them down, Mexico played possession football
and it worked after scoring 2 goals.
Ivory Coast U23'S - Spain U23's
I had to be playing one of the strongest sides? How great. I scored first nice and early, they equalised just before half time. I held
on till the full time whistle, I definitely had the best oppurtunity in the 2nd half, where Lacina Traore had a go which hit the inside
of the post and rolled across the goal, somehow Gohi Bi passed it straight into the keepers hands. Classy.
In Extra time, they scored before the break, before adding quickly in the 2nd half of extra time.
I'm pleased with how the team played in this competition as a whole. Winning 50% of the matches. Shame we were knocked out, but it is
a good job it was to one of the strongest sides in the competition and not some micky mouse nation like... Fiji.
Took it a lot of young players, I think every signing was actually someone coming in on a youth contract on 55 pound a week, most of
is now a been given proffessional contracts. I also managed to hold on to Nikki Bull, my star keeper who will be crucial in my quest for promotion. My best player is young Joe McKee on loan
from promotion. Joe McKee came on loan from Burnley, he looks like he will be key in the midfield. I lost a few players on free's which
is a bummer. Especially Leon Johnson. A rock in defence. I think this might be all I will we doing in the market
Managed to take in 14k for a goal keeper, who is meant to turn into a really good Goalkeeper. With smaller clubs, who have poor youth
facility's I feel that younger players can go if I can bring in cash for them. I released a good few of the younger players too!
