Season 3 - Mixed results

Time for another update on my games, struggling with the better teams in PL, cant seem to give them a fight and Ganso refuses to work in the team, never getting a good game.

So over to my games.

Premier League
Arsenal 5-1 Wigan
Tottenham 5-2 Arsenal
Arsenal 2-0 Aston Villa
Everton 1-3 Arsenal
Arsenal 0-1 Manchester City
Chelsea 1-0 Arsenal

Champions League
PSV 0-3 Arsenal
Arsenal 2-1 Rangers
Arsenal 0-0 Basel
Arsenal 5-0 Basel
Arsenal 5-1 PSV
Rangers 0-3 Arsenal

League Cup
3rd Arsenal 2-0 Birmingham
4th Liverpool 1-0 Arsenal

So I am out of the league cup and losing against the bigger teams, this annoys me quite a bit and i let the players know. Not sure what happened in the dressing room here, blacked out.
if Ganso isnt putting in great performances try him in a different position ? what position do u play him in and what formation are you using

I have tried him as Advanced Playmaker and Attacking Midfielder, he doesn't do any big mistakes, but is simply not having the big impact i want him to have.

Season 3 - New players emerge

I had a home game vs. Blackpool and 2 other games coming the same week, so i decided to rest a good bunch of players and test out my new formation to see if it did the trick. and that it certainly did, because my 2 new promising young strikers did outstandingly well!
Andre Santos(8)
Yaya Sonago(22)
Yaya Sonago(63)
Fabio Borini(63)
Fabio Borini(63,75)

My starting lineup for the game

An finally, here you have my wonderfull goals

First let me update you on my latest fixtures

Wigan 0-3 Arsenal
Arsenal 2-1 Tottenham
Aston Villa 1-1 Arsenal
Arsenal 1-0 Everton

Champions League
Dortmund 2-1 Arsenal

So that sees me trough to the next round, but cant say I have gotten an easy road ahead with these to meet:

This results in a massive next 4 games ahead, meeting City 3 times and Chelsea once in the middle of those fixtures, think i will need something utterly special to get myself trough these next 12 days on top!

Wish me luck

Season 3 - *sigh*

How did it all end you ask?? those 4 matches?? I'll tell you...

Premier League
Arsenal 1-1 Chelsea
Manchester City 2-1 Arsenal

Champions League
Manchester City 1-0 Arsenal
Arsenal 2-1(a) Manchester City

The only match i managed to win was the only one that didn't matter when i conceded one, the joy!

Oh, and to put salt in the wound, here you got the goal i lost by

Sour, very sour.

Season 3 - Player

Would you look at that, seems there is an unhappy player looking to leave Real, what you guys think? between £3-5M i think
