Starting new season with Napoli aim is to qualify for the champions league :) here is my starting squad. i need to sort out the defense and keep hold of lavezzi, cavani and hamsik

September update : Signings

Results :

An amazing victory against the ex-champions league winners, i think that playing 3-4-1-2 against them worked really well. They created some chances but no real clear chances. Playing counter attack did the trick here :)

Great victory wasnt expecting to win so easily, fiorentina have a great team a=but simply under performed today so it was an easy win for me.

Can't quite believe this result, i decided to play attacking form the start but this obviously didn't work as i found myself 3-1 down. I changed to counter and scored to late goals to snatch an important point :)

Overall I'm very happy with results in champions league and the league. By the way I also have marsellie in my champions league group and I'm still amazed that i beat barcelona 2-0 !

October update :


A tense boring game. But glad i got the important victory here, I was helped hugely by the wrongly given red card to Ayew and this was the reason i won today :)

Absolutely gutted after this game, should have been an easy victory but i rested too many big players and it just shows that my substitutes aren't up to a good enough standard. This also ends my unbeaten run stretching from the start of the season.

The scoreline does not show all that there was to this game. We played terrible but the sublime finishing of cavani and the aerial threat of cannavaro we got the big 3 points today :)

Another poor performance to round off the month, it should have been a easy 2-0 victory to me but we played very badly. It was quite even until the 67 minute when a poor shot from abel hernandez somehow beat my keeper. It was a terrible mistake form my normally reliable keeper, de sanctis.

Overall a bad month for me. Should have beaten catania and atleast of drawn with palermo, but top of champions league group after winning all 3 games so far :) I'm now in 4th but i'm only 1 point off 3rd and 2nd and only 2 points off juventus who are in first.

By the way I have signed branescu the young juventus keeper for £1.6 million and also signed Niang from Stade Cean for £3.6 million. They both join in January :)

November update :


Another terrible performance from us and we got what we deserved, nothing. Marsaille pleyed well and jordan ayew scored two great goals, my defense just couldn't deal with the pace of marsaille's strikers.

A great 5-0 win against cagliari. Two goals each for nene and campagnaro, campagnaro my CB scored two headers and arguably my best player of the season nene scored one free kick from distance and a tidy finish. Back to winning ways and putting in good performances :)

An easy win with lavezzi scoring both goals, again another good performance after 3 games of bad performances and mixed results :)

Wasn't expecting to win at the nou camp, just pleased that i kept it down to only two goals. Unfortunately got my first injury of the season and it was to christian Maggio my best right midfielder :(

Best win of the season in my view, juventus are going to be up there at the top and they were favorites for the match. Campagnaro got us off to a flyer after 8 minutes and we built on that. Marek Hamsik put in his best performance of the season as he scored 2 amazing goals. Hamsik's first goal was from a individual run form 30 yards out and he finished with a beautifully placed shot. Back to the top of the league agin :) were i belong. Bad news was that lavezzi is out for 3 weeks and will miss my important champs league game which cavani is banned from :(

A great month in the league but a poor month in the champions league but i still have a chance of qualifying for the knockout stage :)

December update :

Lazio 1-4 Napoli Klose - Vargas, Cavani, Hamsik, Nene

A great performance from my boys today with 4 great goals scored. Nice to see vargas scoring because he has to play in my champs league game vs panathoniakos because lavezzi is injured and cavani is banned. Got another injury today for alderwerield, he is out for 1 month.

Napoli 1-0 Panathoniakos - Dossena

Successfully qualified for the knock out round :) I left i late until the 87th minute but got the win i needed, found out that i drew chelsea in the next round. I play them at home first which is a disadvantage but i'm confident of beating them over 2 legs :)

Napoli 4-0 Ac. Milan - Cavani 2, nene, vargas

Amazing result really turned of the style vs milan today. My tactic of beginning attacking then after getting the early first goal going back to a standard style of playing. Top of the league by 6 points :)

Novara 1-3 Napoli Silva - Fernandez 2, maggio

Napoli 1-0 Cesena Maggio

Maggio scoring for the second game on the trot :) It was a routine victory with cesena defending from the start. It was the first game back for my CM dzemaili form injury and 17 minutes in he got injured again, typical

December proved to be a fantastic month with me winning every game in the month, also qualified for the 1st knock out round of the champions league and drew chelsea.

January update :

Udinese 1-2 Napoli Armero - Hamsik, nene

A good win against a injury battered udinese squad. Nene won us the match with a amazingly powerful free-kick from over 30 yards out. Best player of the season so far with no doubt.

Italian cup 1st round - Siena 2-4 Napoli Gorgi, rosina - Hamsik, maggio 3.

Good routine win in the cup, with a amazing hat-trick from cristian maggio :)

Napoli 0-2 Chievo Martial (og), moscardelli.

A terrible performance from my team today, we are normally alot better against teams like this especially at home in the league. We just never got going in the game and never looked like scoring all game, we didn't even have one shot on goal.

Parma 1-4 Napoli Floccari - Cavani 2, Lavezzi, Gargano.

A complete opposite performance to the one against chievo. Nice to see cavani and lavezzi back to their goal scoring form and we had 24 shots and 12 of them were on target in this game :)

Italian cup quarter final - Roma 1-3 Napoli Kjear - Maggio, Diogo, Nene

Great victory after going down to 10 men after only 8 minutes, it was cannavaro who went in 2 footed and justifiably got sent off. Magnificent performances from my midfielders and attackers won me the game and put me through to the semi-finals of the cup.

Bologna 0-2 Napoli Niang, Hamsik.

Another good performance away from home and it was nice to see Niang socring his first goal for the club. He is sure to be a hot prospect for the future :)

Overall another decent month. There were good performances in the cup and on the whole great results in the league apart form the one slip up against Chievo :)

I also signed willian from shaktar for £12 million as a better CM than dzemaili. This was after changing my season objectives to winning the league because if the surprising league position i have found myself in, so i got an extra £10 million to spend :)
one last thing can you please give me some suggestions for defenders i should buy so that i will reach champions league and also some transfer suggestions for other positions :) thanks
toby alderweireld CB

adel taarabt CAM/CM

papiss cisse ST
cheers mate will look into all these players. By the way i only have £10 million to spend so i may have to sell to buy
If on latest squads Newcastle just bought Cisse so he won't go for the right money
oh yeah i'm looking for a LM now you got any ideas ? has to be quite cheap :)

i was thinking lallana because i have him at sunderland as he was class
i have put in a £3.3 million bud for nene and a £4.2 million bid for alderweireld
Juan Manuel Vargas is good for a 3-4-2-1
i was planning on playing a 3-4-1-2 with lavezzi and cavani upfront with hamsik in behing them
Yeah, either way you will need hard-working wingers, Jonas Gutierrez is a fine example, gets up an down well.
just beat barcelona 2-0 in champions league group stage :)
looks alright so far. would prefer you write it more like a story than jsut putting up screenshots. like match stats , headings for matches and transfers , injury updates and stuff like that
Looking good so far, toby alderweireld looks class
he has been playing amazing and he was very cheap
I have been given £10 million to spend in January and i'm in need of a new CM any ideas ?
