@ejay Thanks for your help, made a new offer, 33k a week for him. Hopefully he'll sign.

vs Tottenham = 1-2 L

Back to back loss in the BPL means the title race is probably out of our hands now as I dropped 6 points. I started with Rafael - Evans - Jones - Fabio in the back as I'm without Vidic, Ferdinand, and Smalling. Evra is being rested as he has just 84% condition. I brought up Fornasier from the reserves as a sub. Early on Evans had a red card which increases my problems at the back as Smalling was handed a further 2 match ban from the Everton game. Subbed in Fornasier and did well.

The league table as of this time. Looks like Chelsea are favorites. Though we have 2 games in hand. We will do our best to stay in third place as Arsenal are only a point behind. Though we might not win the league, we still have the Champions League and the FA Cup to play for. Plus I have won the Community Shield. We could still get a treble. Next game is the second leg against Barcelona, hopefully we can finish them off.

vs Barcelona (CL Semi Final - Away) = 2-2 D (7-3 agg.) W

Another fantastic effort by my team, although shorthanded and tired, we still held them to a draw. Although they were without Busquets and Pique through suspension, and Messi and Puyol through injuries, we were without Nani, Vidic, Ferdinand through injuries and Evra through suspension. Welbeck scored our first and Fabio scored the second. We're heading to finals against Bayern who beat OM 3-0 on aggregate.

Tired players, yet we have another league game against Everton in just a day. I decided to give them a day of rest after the Barca game to prepare them for Everton. Plus we have Hernandez back from injury.
Hang in have a far better gd over Chelsea and a game in hand so win that game and you'll only b 3 points off..could i see both of your run ins?
Btw great work on the champs lge, not easy teams you've had to get through :)
remaining April games:

vs Everton = 6-0 W
vs Fulham = 3-2 W

Exhausted yet we still trashed Everton by 6 goals. I think this has become a habit of ours to score 6 against Everton haha. And our BPL title hopes are alive again when we got away with a win against Fulham. They were the better side in the second half and nearly equalized in a few occasions. But our defense stood still. We are now just 3 points away from Chelsea with a game in hand. Chelsea lost to Manchester City 2-1. And with a huge goal difference, we might just win the title. And now its May and the final stage of the season. Lets hope I can bring in more trophies.

@Deverell92 Thanks man. And Chelsea just lost to Manchester City which means, 3 points behind and still a game in hand.
@Deverell92 my remaining league games are against Sunderland, Arsenal, and Swansea. Chelsea's remaining games are against Everton and Tottenham. Tough games for Chelsea going against Tottenham and I have a tough game against Arsenal. So good luck to both of us.
Yeaa your right there, neither Everton or Spurs will be easy for them saying that there now the team with the pressure so will be an interesting last couple of games :) keep me posted mate
Start of May: (Showtime)

vs Sunderland = 2-0 W

Ramires gave an early lead with a long range effort. Valencia then took the ball inside to score in the first half. The second half was a quiet one as no one really got it going. Though I am still very pleased with the result.

In other news Chelsea drew with Everton 0-0! This has closed the gap to just 1 point. And with a game in hand, I am very much in the driving seat for the league title. But my next game is against Arsenal which could be tough. But Chelsea are also against Tottenham, so this could be an exciting ending to the season.


Norwich is relegated from the league.
Ronaldo hands in transfer request.
Get Ronaldo ;)
I wuden't get Ronaldo. You already have 3 class wingers in Valencia,Nani & Young.
vs Chelsea (FA Cup Final) = 3-4 L

An epic battle between us and Chelsea. Evra made a clean tackle on Donovan but Howard Webb saw it as a penalty. Every time they score, we always equalized. After 90 minutes, the score was 3-3. The first half of extra time it was still 3 all. The second half was nearly done when we took a corner which was cleared out. Smalling ran after the ball so did Sturridge. Sturridge took the ball and ran away from Smalling to our half and is one on one against De Gea. De Gea stood no chance in the 123rd minute of extra time as Sturridge killed us. The whistle was blown then.

It was a devastating moment as it was nearly the end. I thought we would go to penalties. But it just wasn't to be. Chelsea shouldn't have been awarded a penalty and I made it clear in the press conference. The FA was silent about it as it was clear that it shouldn't have been one. We still have our heads high. We still have the BPL title to claim and the Champions League.
vs Arsenal = 1-0 W

Good game against Arsenal at the Etihad. Rooney scoring the only goal. This is the game in hand and now we are back on top! We're now leading Chelsea by 2 points and its come down to the last game of the season. It would be easier for me as we're facing Swansea whereas Chelsea are facing Tottenham. It is now up to us to claim it.

@Nickbonista I tried admiring him and declaring interest for a while now but he still won't sign for United. :P

@Deverell92 I tried. He won't sign. Oh well, haha. Would've been another great player for me. I got my eyes now on Kroos at Bayern who is unhappy. I declared interest on him and he's waiting for an official bid.
Final game:

vs Swansea = 4-0 W

And finally, we won our last game which makes us the title winners for the BPL! Hernandez scored a hat-trick and Rooney scored from a penalty. It was an exciting match, especially for me as I know we have the title in our hands. Chelsea lost to Tottenham 1-0 and they dropped 5 points in their last 2 games which proved to be crucial for me as I was able to catch up to them.
Champions League Final:

vs Bayern Munich = 3-2 W

Well done by my team as we beat Bayern to claim the title! I partnered Jones with Ferdinand as Evans is out through suspension and Vidic still injured. Also started Cleverly in place of Rooney who was out with suspension. Cleverly made 2 goals in the first half before Jones made an own goal. Bayern stared the second half stronger as Robben scored from a distance. Cleverly nearly earned a hat-trick as his shot hit the right post, but it bounced to Nani and he slotted home the winner.

Great way to end the season as we yet again earned another trophy. Now the players can enjoy their break.

Other news:

I have applied for the Great Britain U-23 post and it has been granted. I am now controlling the U-23 squad of Great Britain. Also a lot of head coaches have been sacked and replaced. I will keep you posted in the next season.
