Transfer news:

Macheda sold to Real Sporting for 3.6m

Also bought this regen

Looks like he would really be a good player. Cost me a lot.

August matches:

vs Stoke = 0-0 D
vs West Ham = 1-1 D
vs Tottenham (UEFA Super Cup) = 5-4 W

Drew the first 2 games. Bad performance by the players. Hopefully they'll improve next month. The UEFA Super Cup game was an exciting one. Tottenham scored the first 2 goals then we scored 3 before half time. We scored another in the second half but Tottenham scored 2 more. Hernandez scored the game winning goal in the 83rd minute to seal the deal.
Those transfers look great, however that regen seems a bit one-sided, I would train his speed and finishing
Group stage in Champions League

Man U
AC Milan

September matches:

vs Blackburn = 2-1 W
vs Dortmund = 4-2 L
vs Everton = 2-0 W
vs Middlesbrough (Carling Cup 3rd Round) = 3-0 W
vs Cardiff = 2-0 W

A game at Old Trafford against Dortmund, a terrible night. Dortmund was fast, really fast. The aging Vidic and Ferdinand couldn't catch up to Dortmund's lobs and they always look deadly on the counter. Had to sub both of them out. During the Middlesbrough game, I played a few players from the academy and they did well.

After the Dortmund game, I realized that Vidic and Ferdinand cannot cope with the fast and pacey young strikers. So I decided I'll be rotating them with Smalling, Jones, and Evans. Also glad that Fabio is back after 2 months out.
@Nickbonista I agree, and I will be training his finishing and speed. He's just 16 and still has a lot of training to do.
October matches:

vs AC Milan = 1-1 D
vs Fulham = 2-0 W
vs Arsenal = 1-4 L
vs Zenit = 4-1 W
vs Southhampton = 2-2 D
vs Millwall (CC 4th Round) = 4-2 W

The game against Arsenal hurt as a lot. To make it worse ,it was at Old Trafford. We had the lead but they just took over after that. Our next home league game against Southampton was another unacceptable match. We drew against them at home. Bad performance by the players. The players are in a bad form but hopefully they'll improve next month.
November matches:

It was a good November for us. The game against Dortmund was hard as they have a solid team. I now look forward to December where we will also be in the FIFA Club World Cup Championship.
December matches:

Had a bad game against Liverpool and Chelsea, though we managed to bounce back. And we also won the FIFA Club World Cup in a victory against Sao Paulo.

Welbeck wins FIFA Club World Cup Golden Ball

Ashley Young is included in the FIFA World XI

Mid season table

Not really a good start for us, but we do have 2 games in hand.
January matches:

Transfers out:

I couldn't get any transfers in because the board wouldn't raise my transfer budget. I can adjust the budget to 15m max but the payroll budget would decrease a lot. I made an agreement with Afellay supposedly but with no budget, I decided to withdraw. So I will be sticking to my current team until the end of the season. I also decided to recall Medina from FC Twente as Welbeck was injured for 2 weeks and Muniain for a week. And Medina actually did good as he scored a few goals in the month.

League major transfers:

Kwadwo Asamoah from Udinese to Arsenal = 15.75m
Ryan Shawcross from Stoke to Liverpool = 11.5m
Eduardo from Shakhtar to Chelsea = 11.25m
Yury Zhirkov from Anzhi to Liverpool = 10.5m
Sebastian Coates from Liverpool to Sevilla = 10.5m


Looking bad for us as we might end up just 4th.
February matches:

Glad to beat Barca at home. I'm surprised as when I saw who their manager was, it was Roberto Mancini! Barca played bad throughout the game and we were in full control.

Disappointed to have been eliminated in the FA Cup. Played few U-18s and their inexperience prove to be the turning point as one of my U-18 defender earned a red card. But we did to manage an important win against Arsenal the next game.
March matches:

April matches: (not all)

Remaining matches:

The last remaining matches are crazy. I must finish these games and avoid dropping points. Hopefully I will also advance in the CL Final.
Last 2 games of April:

vs Liverpool = 0-0 D
vs Chelsea (CL Semi Final) = 2-1 W
May/June matches:

League Table results:

It wasn't our best season but it wasn't bad either. A third place finish is okay and we'll do better next season.


Ashley Young is FWA Footballer of the Year

Nani finished 3rd in PFA Player of the Year

Tony Stark is second in Barclays Manager of the Year

Nani and Young in PFA Team of the Year and De Gea is named as a substitute

The Champions League Final was between us against Real Madrid. And we lost 2-0. They controlled most of the game and we didn't get anything going. Ozil, Higuain and Ronaldo were fast as we couldn't keep them quiet. Although we lost, I'm still proud that I got the team this far. We will do better next season.
Pre season game:

vs Leicester = 3-0 W

Only played 1 pre season game the whole summer and. The players did well.

August games:

A horrible 2 games for me. Just barely winning it at home against my once former affiliated club, Leicester. And lost to Blackburn by 4 goals. Vidic was crap both games. De Gea was bad but it wasn't entirely his fault. We must improve if we're ever going to win any trophy this season.

My transfers:


Davide Santon - A very good player who can play both left back and right back naturally. Bought him to replace Evra. He and Fabio will be able to get a chance to fight for the left back spot.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen - An expensive buy, but one that may be worth the money. De Gea never really had a back up last season and brining in ter Stegen can help us. Both can play in big games so I'll be rotating the two. The first 2 games, De Gea was horrible. ter Stegen will be starting against Liverpool my next game and see how he does against big teams.

Thiago - A player who can do big things in the midfield. I got him as a replacement for Fletcher. He and Cleverly who I just got back from loan, will do great things for the club.


Ferdinand - With his age, I don't think I can use him as much. After having bad games last season, I think its time for Ferdinand to leave.

Antonio Valenca - Sold as he wasn't doing great anymore. Also I have Cleverly back and this will give Cleverly more playing time.

Darren Fletcher - Played well, but not great. Ramires has done better starting and I felt it was time for Fletcher to leave.

Patrice Evra - He is also old like Ferdinand. And bad games last season proved that. He doesn't want to sign for other teams so I loaned him out. This will give time for Fabio and Santon to develop. Also I have a regen who is labelled as the next Patrice Evra.

Champions League Groups:

Tough group as we drew with Milan and At. Madrid. But we have what it takes to advance.
You have a tough group in the Champions League, only Litex is the easy team, good luck for the rest of the season! it looks good, if you can't win this season then try to see where your weak links are and improve them, as this is what im trying to do within my City game.
