United Win Part 1 Of The Battle Of Britain


4-5-1
Line Up - David De Gea, Rafael, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Fabio, Marek Hamsik, Michael Carrick, Darren Fletcher, Ashley Young, Nani, Javier Hernandez
Subs Used - Park Ji Sung, Paul Pogba

We came out on top against the spirited SPL Champions. Nani continued his fine goalscoring form with another goal & midway through the second half Javier Hernandez turned the defender and slotted the ball home, im happy he got a goal as he is short of them at the moment. Another fine performance and our 100% record in all comps this season continues.

Line Up - David De Gea, Rafael, Phil Jones, Nemanja Vidic, Fabio, Marek Hamsik, Tom Cleverley, Antonio Valencia, Nani, Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez
Subs Used - Jack Rodwell, Park Ji Sung, Danny Welbeck

A very poor performance from my men and we deserved to come away with nothing in my opinion. We managed just 6 shots all game and just 45% possession. I expect a big response in the next league game at the Bridge!

Champions Ease There Way Into The Next Round


4-4-2
Line Up - Anders Lindegaard, Kyle Walker, Rio Ferdinand, Chris Smalling, Patrice Evra, Ryan Tunnicliffe, Paul Pogba, Adnan Januzaj, Park Ji Sung, Will Keane, Carlos Fierro
Subs Used - Ryan Giggs, Phil Jones

As you can see the fact i have Rio & Patrice starting this game shows they have declined as footballers recently & Evans, Jones & Fabio all get more time this season. Ryan Tunnicliffe also made his professional debut in this win..Ferdinand, Giggs & a Mark Howard og secured our win & took us to the Quarter Finals, on a sour note Rio got sent off in the second half so had to bring off Will Keane & replace him with Jones.

Sheffield United 0 - 3 Manchester United

Subs Used - Jack Rodwell, Ashley Young, Kyle Walker

What a win! I had this down for a draw but to get the 3 points & keep a clean sheet was really something. Danny Welbeck put us ahead after 27minutes and we held our own for the first half, however towards the half time whistle Darren Fletcher was shown a straight red for a bad challenge so i brought Welbeck off and replaced him with Rodwell. We went for a defensive approach in the second half and thankfully it worked, John Terry hit the crossbar towards the end but thats the closest they came.

Chelsea 0 - 1 Manchester United
Couldn't post a picture of you teams, senior,reserve,u18's? Cheers bud
First Team:


Reserves:


U18's:



I realise i was abit silly freeing many of my youths that had no potential what so ever as i now lack men in both reserves & U18's, ive got my eye on a few players atm who i will look to bring into the first team over the next 2-3 years. From the reserves i have Will Keane, Mats Daehi, Adnan Januzaj, Ryan Tunnicliffe & Carlos Fierro. My U18's hold Bernard Pendlebury, Joe Walsh, Robbie Cotton & Gary Crowther, all with much potential be stars.

English Champions Progress To Knockout Stages

Line Up - Anders Lindegaard, Kyle Walker, Phil Jones, Nemanja Vidic, Fabio, Marek Hamsik, Tom Cleverley, Antonio Valencia, Ashley Young, Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck
Subs Used - Javier Hernandez, Paul Pogba, Park Ji Sung

A fine away win against our fierce British rivals, these meetings are usually heated affairs and this proved no different with 7 yellow cards shown in the 90mins. Wayne Rooney gave us a early lead however slowly Celtic got into the game and they created some great chances & just past the hour mark Joe Ledley headed Cletic level. It looked asif this would finish a draw however with under 10mins remaining Paul Pogba hit a 30 yard screamer which dinked over the keeper, superb goal for a superb win.

Celtic 1 - 2 Manchester United
mate your story is class keep it up

Injury Update - Danny Welbeck went off injured in the Celtic win & will be out for 2-3 months with a broken ankle. This is bad news as i only have Rooney & Hernandez as strikers in the first team so ive decided to bring Will Keane into the first team but still available for the reserves just to see how he does as a backup. Jonny Evans is still 5-7 weeks away from full fitness & Valencia should be back playing football in 2 weeks after his short lay off.
Ryan Tunnicliffe has joined Doncaster Rovers on loan for 3 months, i hope he learns alot during his time away & i look forward to seeing how he develops overtime. If they request an extention to the end of the season its most likely i will accept as he needs as good 6-7 months of first team football.

East Anglias Hit By Storm From The North West

Subs Used - Will Keane

Nani got us of to a flyer early on with his 6th goal of the season & that was followed by 2 more before half time courtesy of Nemanja Vidic & Javier Hernandez. Jack Rodwell wrapped things up for us towards the end with a 30 yard screamer! Myself & the fans we delighted with how they played having 33 shots & limiting Norwich to just 3, following the match Norwich sacked Paul Lambert as they sit just 1 point above the relegation places, i for one felt it was harsh but maybe they wanted a change hmmmm...onto Fulham!

Manchester United 4 - 0 Norwich City
good luck for the rest of the season mate, good wins against Chelsea and unfortunate loss against Bolton, I have my little upsets too...


I like how you haven't spent alot of money on different players and that you will concentrate on using youth aswell as experience.

Thanks mate appreciate the feedback :)
Im looking to the future, the only big signing i made in my first season was Marek Hamsik as we were very light in the middle of the park, this season i bought Kyle Walker & Jack Rodwell both young with alot of potential & there both ENGLISH!! :D Im looking to get Will Keane more involved this term with abit of first team action though i would still like him to go on loan, im looking at Alphonse Areola as a future backup gk as Lindegaard wants to leave due to not getting enough gametime. I have Ben Amos who developed well last season in his loan spell at Ipswich but i don't think he has the potential to make it big here

After last season's 3-1 defeat in this fixture i warned my players to go out there and get a result & for 87mins we didn't look to as we were deadlocked 0-0 however Wayne Rooney showed his determination by poking the ball out of the Fulham defenders grasp which ended up creeping into the back of the net, giving us the 3 points. Im chuffed to bits how my team is playing right now..19 games in all comps this season & only 6 goals conceded!!

Fulham 0 - 1 Manchester United


On another note Wigan claimed there first BPL point of the season on the 12th attepmt after there 2-2 draw with Stoke at the DW, Hugo Rodallega getting an 81stmin equaliser.
