Rooney opened the scoring with a neat finish into the corner from 20 yards. The second came as Young crossed and Bale tapped in at the far post. Overall a decent win, could've been more.

Yeah, well I had to get my squad up, there won't be many more unless I upload matches as the in-game stats screen.
Champions League Group F - Benfica, Estadio da Luz
Formation: 4-4-2

Starting Line-up:
De Gea (GK)
Smalling(FB) Jones(CD) Vidic (CD) Evra (FB)
Nani (W) Fellaini (BWM) Fernandinho (AP) Gotze (W)
Cavani (AF) Rooney (CF)

HT: 1-2 Mora (17), Witsel (32 pen), Vidic (43)

Subs Used: Ford, Wilshere

FT: 4-2 Mora (17), Witsel (32 pen), Vidic (43), Gotze (61), Cavani (64), Nani (96)

MOTM: Nani (8.2)
Good Performers: Cavani (7.5)

A good comeback from two goals down, we went behind to a good shot from the edge of the box then a clear penalty that Fellaini conceded, I still have serious doubts about him. This was an unimportant game as I have already qualified for the knockouts, but I still wanted to win. Luckily we got a goal from Vidic from a corner before half time, then they had a man sent off in the 50th minute. This spurred us into life and a cross from Nani was met by Gotze at the back post, then 2 minutes later we worked the ball up to Cavani, he took it round the keeper and deftly finished. A tap-in from Nani completed the comeback in the 96th minute.
Just a quick update, the club is in takeover talks, I have no idea what this will mean as I have no experience of it in FM games. Also we have been drawn Man City in the League Cup Semi-Final providing we beat Ipswich in the quarter.
English Premier Division - Blackburn, Old Trafford
Formation: 4-4-2

Starting Line-up:
De Gea (GK)
Rafael(FB) Papadopoulos(CD) Vidic (CD) Criscito (FB)
Hazard (W) Asamoah (BWM) Wilshere (AP) Bale (W)
Cavani (AF) Fierro (P)

HT: 0-1 Olsson (23)

Subs Used: None

FT: 4-2 Olsson (23), Larsson (66), Cavani (52), Fierro (55, 92), Papadopoulos (69)

MOTM: Fierro (9.2)
Good Performers: Hazard (8.2)

Unfortunately we went 1-0 down to a Martin Olsson goal from a ridiculous angle, they did not deserve it one bit. At half-time I told the team they were unlucky and how they responded, Fierro running onto a long ball and squaring for Cavani to head in. This momentum carried, as a few minutes later a build-up down the left resulted in Wilshere back-heeling the ball through the Blackburn defence and Fierro slotting in from two yards. The game looked won but 66 minutes in, a long ball found Seb Larsson and he did finish well, if against the run of play. Our spirit showed yet again though as 4 minutes later Papadopoulos grabbed a header from a corner and rammed it into the goal. We battered them after this, and in stoppage time some tick-tack passing led to a deft finish from Fierro, who has shown his class today.
League Cup Quarter Final - Ipswich, Old Trafford
Formation: 4-4-2

Starting Line-up:
Courtois (GK)
Smalling(FB) Andreev(CD) Vidic (CD) Laguna (FB)
Nani (W) Fernandinho (BWM) Gotze (AP) Scorfield (W)
Cavani (AF) Hernandez (P)

HT: 2-0 Hernandez (10), Cavani (16)

Subs Used: Ford, Wilshere

FT: 4-2 Mora (17), Witsel (32 pen), Vidic (43), Gotze (61), Cavani (64), Nani (96)

MOTM: Nani (7.8)
Good Performers: Cavani, Hernandez, Andreev (7.8)

We started well, and after 10 minutes, a goal kick was headed back through their defence for Hernandez to run on to and finish well. Six minutes later, another goal kick was headed to Scorfield on the left, who then shrugged off the Ipswich right-back and swung a cross in that found Cavani. The usual result applied, the Uruguayan spinning and drilling the ball into the net. Our good spirits continued into the second half as young Timo Andreev scored his first goal for United from a well-taken corner. The game played out with us in control, and it's a Manchester derby in the semi-final, bring it on!
Club World Championship Semi Final - Al-Ahly, Stade du Prince Moulay Abdallah
Formation: 4-4-2

Starting Line-up:
Courtois (GK)
Smalling (FB) Papadopoulos(CD) Vidic (CD) Criscito (FB)
Nani (W) Aasamoah (BWM) Wilshere (AP) Bale (W)
Cavani (AF) Fierro (P)

HT: 2-0 Asamoah (13), Nani (16 pen)

Subs Used: None
FT: 3-0 Asamoah (13), Nani (16 pen), Wilshere (58)

MOTM: Asamoah (8.5)
Good Performers: Wilshere (8.5)

As expected we dominated from the off, having a few chances for the front two. 13 minutes in, a nice one-two between Asamoah and Bale resulted in Asamoah smashing the ball in from 25 yards. Man United certainly seemed up for this, as 3 minutes later Cavani was put through by great work from Asamoah and then tripped by an XX defender. Nani scored the penalty and we looked good for the final. After the break we got another from some silky skill by Cavani and his cross being met by Jack Wilshere in the 6-yard box. This competition is always a formality, so this game turned out to be as we had 29 shots to their measly 3.
An update guys, I'm struggling to write a full match report for each game so I'm just gonna be doing transfer updates, injury news and the end of season results sheet.

At the moment Cavani broke his leg against Man City and is out for 6 months, we drew 2-2 in the game which was League Cup Semi-Final 1st leg. We then beat them 4-1 away in the league with a hat-trick from Rooney.

I have sold Fellaini to Real Madrid for 20m, coming the other way for 15m is Hulk, as I'm now using Koflok's Goals Galore 4-3-3 and I didn't have an inside forward for the left wing, but Nani can play winger there.
