Barclays Premier League

disappointing result after a very disappointing game. we struggled to control the game at any point and always looked vulnerable on the counter attack. too many missed placed passes in the midfield and pointless long ball from my centrebacks ( Terry & Luiz )

ill be looking for a positive reaction in my next game against Napoli
European Champions League

Very happy with the performance today as we completely controlled the game in every aspect. only concern was that we didnt put more goals away and really smash them

Barclays Premier League

well i would have to say im not to happy with this result as i feel we really could have beaten united today. no team was really able to gain control of the game which also made it very open. we tried a formation change later in the 2nd half which made our attack more potent but my players just couldnt find that extra bit of energy to go for an equaliser

next game . League cup Rnd 3 vs Fulham
a very absorbing match for my players as fulham took us all the way to extra time where Salomon Kalou finally broke the deadlock.
I feel even though fulham have a fair few shots against us today we were pretty comfortable as most of their shots came from well outside the area which rarely troubled Cech

Being the League Cup i decided to give a few of my youngsters a run . Nathaniel Chalobah , Enzo Zidane and Islam Feruz all looked pretty solid in their debut outings and will definitly be in line for the next round
why did you post the fulham game twice lol :P
that was a mistake lol. all fixed now :D

a very pleasing win today. we dominated the midfield with a our 2nd string midfield ( Clifford , Romeu & meirieles ) i was satisfied with the amount of time our players had on the ball due to constant movement off the ball. Swansea were never really in the game and only mustered a handful of shots whic halso pleased me after making adjustments to our defence.. i was annoyed with Gary Cahill getting sent off due to 2 needless tackles.

Transfer rumours & news

the main story coming out of the dailymail today is that Chelsea could be ready to make a move for Fiorentina starlet Stevan Jovetic. with the january transfer window still a few months away im sure we will hear more on this topic
a very entertaining draw today. i set my team up in a counter attacking 4-3-3 formation which i feel worked well against this very attacking Benfica, they often threw 5-6 players into their attacks which kept my centrebacks on there toes all game and they coped with the pressure quite well. i decided to replace Gary Cahill with Nathaniel Chalobah late on cause i felt that Cahill was close to getting a second yellow card. i gotta say im quite please with Chalobah performance
Buy jovetic only if you need a LW, and an OK draw ;)
ill be looking to play him as an AML . or even up front by himself . im training torres to play AML so i have cover for that position
I can say from experience Jovetic is a fine, fine player. Train him a little in finishing and compsure/decisions and he is a top striker, his passing can warrant a place as an AMC any day of the week and if made a bit quicker is brilliant in AML
Did Islam Feruz come with the January update? He's not on my game. Is he on there with a different name?
a great result against a Bolton side that are traditionally very hard to beat at the Reebok Stadium.
As you can see we dominated the match from start to finish, and with the amount of shots we were able to create we could and probably should have won by alot more. but saying that im very happy with the performance today.

And yeah this is the January Update . he has the potential to be as good as torres
