I have decided to go Newcastle United as they are a team with a good financial backing and a strong side but need a few good signings to make them compete for European football.

My goals for the coming season are

Premier League: Euro Cup qualification
League Cup: Winner
FA Cup: Quarter Finals or better

My main aim to bring some silverware to the club as the signings may take some time to adapt to the club.

Im playing a 4-1-2-2-1 formation with a fluid philosophy and a controlling strategy


I made some signings this season to strengthen the squad and also sold players who i deemed surplus to requirements.

Players Sold: £15.5M

Shola Ameobi £3.4M
Peter Lovenkrands £1.7M
Mike Williamson £3M
Steve Harper £1.2M
Sylvain Marveaux Loan Fee £825K
Leon Best £3.7M
Tamas Kadar £1.4M

Players Bought: £26.5M

Lucas Andersen £875K
Daniel Sturridge Loan
Christian Eriksen £8.5M
Rafael Toloi £2.5M

So i am all set now for a tricky but exciting season ill post updates 5 games in..................
didn't you get the update cause then you would have papiss cisse :)
no i haven't yet boo
VS Swansea (H) PRM 1-0 (Cabaye)
VS Fulham (A) PRM 2-2 (Ba, Rochina)
VS Preston (H) LC 4-1 (El Ghanassy, Rochina, Andersen, Toloi)
VS Arsenal (H) PRM 2-1 (Rochina, Gutierrez)
VS Blackburn (A) PRM 2-0 (Rochina, Nestor)

My first 5 games have been outstanding the Fulham game was the only one that disappointed me but it was only down to the officials we had two goals disallowed but other than that my team are performing amazingly.

Were currently sitting 3rd in the league and have just drawn Nottingham Forest in the next round of the League Cup at home so should make it through to the next round.

Ill post more updates soon.............
I would restart and get the update cause we haven't sold anybody and got Papiss. And why'd you let shola go, he's a god man!!
im not a newcastle fan so shoals just another player to me and the signings I've made have been a lot better investments than him
VS West Brom (H) PRM 0-0
VS Nottingham Forest (H) LC 1-2 (Guthrie)
VS Wolves (A) PRM 3-2 (Cabaye 2, Foley o.g)
VS Everton (A) PRM 2-2 (Sturridge, Nestor)
VS Man City (H) PRM 1-2 (Sturridge)

The League Cup performance was very unluck AGAIN the officials were against us costing us the game with 2 abysmal decisions disallowing 2 of our goals the other performances in the league however i have been very happy with we are currently sitting in 4th position with all of the players finally at full fitness so hopefully we'll be able to string another few good wins together

Ill post some more details in the next 5 games................
VS Chelsea (A) PRM 0-2
VS Norwich (H) PRM 2-0 (Ba, Nestor)
VS Wigan (A) 2-0 PRM (Nestor, Coloccini)
VS Stoke (H) PRM (Nestor, Rochina)
VS Tottenham (A) PRM 0-2

My team has been performing brilliantly in the league its just a shame against the stronger teams in the league i just can't get the results i deserve.

Here is a list of my top performers at the minute

Rochina 5 Goals 5 Assists 2 MoM
Nestor 5 Goals 2 Assists 5 MoM
Cabaye 3 Goals 2 Assists 1 MoM

Nestor has been a machine in front of goal i have singed him with other clubs and he's been the same every time usually bagging me 10-25 goals a season.

I have also got 2 signings coming in in the next window

Rodrigo Brana £4.5M
Carlos Fierro £1.3M

I have also sold Danny Guthrie for £1.5M as i have too many players in the same position i am also considering selling Chiek Tiote as he is not performing well at all for me at the moment and he can generate a lot of money what do you think?...................
i think you should keep Cheick Tiote he is newcastles best ball winning midfielder.

you wont bring instant success just by buying loads of players. as it takes time for the to gel. its best to maybe buy 1 or 2 a year. well that my philosphy anywayz :)
Thanks for the advice my aim is to bring in all the players i need in the 1st season and then to get them to gel and then maybe add 1 or 2 each season to strengthen
VS Bolton (H) PRM 2-3 (Cabaye, Sturridge)
VS Aston Villa (A) PRM 1-3 (Beye o.g)
VS Liverpool (A) PRM 0-0
VS Sunderland (H) PRM 2-1 (Sturridge 2)
VS Man Utd (H) PRM 3-0 (Sturridge 2, Arfa)
VS QPR (A) PRM 0-1
VS Swansea (A) PRM 2-1 (Nestor, Rochina)

Its been a mixed few weeks with results against lower teams a lot more sub standard than against the larger teams. The result against Man Utd though was the highlight of the season so far we were amazing and dominated the game from start to finish.

Were currently sitting 6th place in the league and have drawn Millwall in the FA Cup so we should hopefully progress to the next round. I am going to stick to my philosophy with playing my youth and less used players in the cups to see how strong the depth of my squad is.

More posts soon.................................
Ive played a lot of games since the last update it has been a really addictive game as the team has been performing very well and I'm loving the challenge of competing with the top teams.

VS Millwall (H) FAC 2-0 (Silva, Obertan)
VS Fulham (H) PRM 4-1 (Sturridge 2, Rochina 2)
VS Arsenal (A) PRM 0-2
VS Wycombe (H) FAC 2-0 (Taylor, Loran o.g)
VS Blackburn (H) PRM 1-1 (Bunn o.g)
VS Wolves (H) PRM 3-0 (Gutierrez, Nestor, Rochina)
VS West Brom (A) PRM 3-2 (Sturridge 3)
VS Swansea (A) FAC 4-0 (Sturridge, Cabaye 2, Nestor)
VS Everton (H) PRM 0-2
VS Man City (A) PRM 1-2 (Sturridge)
VS Chelsea (H) PRM 3-3 (Arfa 2, Ba)
VS Chelsea (A) FAC 1-4 (Gutierrez)
VS Norwich (A) PRM 2-0 (Chambers o.g, Cabaye)
VS Wigan (H) PRM 1-0 (Gutierrez)
VS Stoke (A) PRM 2-2 (Whitehead o.g, Arfa)

Im currently sitting 6th in the league with a promising finish of maybe coming 5th as 4th is too far away now. I was disappointed with the defeat to Chelsea in the FA Cup but we were beaten by the far better team just the luck of the draw.

Im onto the final part of the season now so with 7 games left lets hope i can get that european finish I'm after...................
VS Tottenham (H) PRM 4-2 (Rochina 2, Gutierrez 2)
VS Bolton (A) PRM 0-0
VS Aston Villa (H) PRM 2-0 (Nestor, Gutierrez)
VS Sunderland (A) PRM 2-1 (Brown o.g, Rochina)
VS Liverpool (H) PRM 1-0 (Obertan)
VS Man Utd (A) PRM 0-1
VS QPR (H) PRM 1-1 (Nestor)

I finished the season 6th with a Euro Cup place in the bag so big success allround.

Im on a pre season break now so ill get back posting when the new season is ready....................
