Baaaaad month for Liverbird FC with only 2 wins out of a possible 5 and 9 goals conceded it will not be a month to remember!. Not for the good points anyway.
as you can see my strikers ain't striking with only 1 goal from a striker all month. i can safely say... im in a bit of a rut :(

But things can only get better...... right?

Lets hope so!!
Season 1 (Oct - Nov)

League Position: 8th (26 Points)

as you can see im slowly dropping down the league :( but only 7 points behind Hull at the top of the League, but only 2 points behind 2nd placed Ipswich im still on course for at least promotion after 16 games

A fairly even month, but we should be doing better i think. 2 wins 2 draws and a loss is obviously better than 5 losses but 8 points from 15 personally isnt good enough.

Season 1 (Nov - Dec)

League Position: 6th (37 Points)

so up to play off places, Play offs are the lowest im trying to achieve and only sitting 7 points away from top of the table, the league isnt too far away! Just need to carry on and plow through **COME ON BOYS**

Portsmouth 1 - 2 Liverbird FC

A (Michael Owen, Walter Pandiani)

Liverbird FC 0 - 1 Nottingham Forest

A (Dwight Pezzarossi)

Millwall 2 - 2 Liverbird FC
H (Darius Henderson, Andrew Keogh)
A (Tomas Repka(2))

Another month of 2 wins, 2 draws and a loss! Unfortunately half way through the nearly, and im still trying to find a team that works well consistently to ensure 3 points is a definate. Although the reason i chose this league is because it is MASSIVELY unpredictable so i suppose its playing to the standard.
Going into December and sitting 6th, so promotion is definately still possible and sitting in the offs is... okay i guess. I would certainly prefer promotion through position in the table rather than promotion through play offs. The off (much like the league itself) is too unpredictable for my liking, all it takes is one bad performance in the play off and you spend anothewr year in the 2nd division (which i dont want)
Next update within a day or two :)

a quick month this month with only 3 being played, but a good one to say the least! 2/3 wins with a big one against Middlesbrough with Prestia scoring a hat-trick on his debut!! i dont know how, but there we go... thats football!
How is Michael Owen and Souleymane Coulibaly doing for you? Very curious...

Looks like Prestia is doing well!
well michael owen is a created player (if you didnt already know) but hes not doing too bad, i usually use him as LW as i didnt have a decent one, but ive moved him to AM because ive signed assaidi? that guy liverpool just signed in real life lol,

coulibaly is a bench player at the moment but he plays well when he does, but hes not as consistent as he was when i used him for crawley in my other story.

so i forgot to update after the last month lol so i'll just explain now :P

i finished the season THIRD!! therefore.... play offs :(

i had southampton first and won 7-1 on aggregate so i was through to the final vs Derby, who beat Peterborough 1-0 on aggregate.

i lost to derby in the final 1-0 with a 92nd minute goal so that meant another year in the championship :(

i have now started the next season which started well (in the next update ;) )

some new signings were made as i was given lots of money... WAYYYYY too much to spend but i have spent well, bought a better central defence as my full backs were already of decent quality.

LEAGUE POSITION:4th (10 points)

Newcastle (A) 3-1 Win (Leandro, Lucas Andersen, Carlos Fierro)
Southampton (H) 1-1 Draw (Sotiris Ninis)
Peterborough (A) 1-0 Win (Craig Alcock o.g)
Bolton (H) 3-1 Win (Steve Beleck(2), Souleymane Coulibaly)

The highlight of this month has to be the 2 wins Vs relegated Premier League Teams, and the brace from Steve Beleck on his DEBUT!
LEAGUE POSITION:2nd (26points)

Vs Notts Co (A) 3-0 Win (Steve Beleck, Oussama Assaidi(2)
Vs Crystal Palace (H) 1-0 Win (Steve Beleck)
Vs Preston (A) 4-2 Win Guiseppe Prestia (3), Yaya Sanogo)
Vs Barnsley (H) 4-1 Win (Jay McEveley o.g, Yaya Sanogo (3)
Vs Middlesbrough (H) 3-0 Win (Michael Owen, Yaya Sanogo, Sylvain Armand)
Vs Hull (A) 2-2 Draw (Michael Owen, Oussama Assaidi)

So only 1 point seperating me and birmingham at the top of the league! it was only the last result vs Hull that dropped me to 2nd
Overall a very good month with points only dropped in the last game although there is a reason/excuse... id already made all 3 subs, and 2 players got injured therefore i only had 9 men on the pitch, slight advantage for the opposition, and they pulled level after the whistle should have gone! there was only meant to have 4 mins added and it ended on 97!
LEAGUE POSITION:1st (36points)

Vs Birmingham (H) 1-0 Win (Michael Owen)
Vs Brighton (A) 3-1 Win (Yaya Sanogo(3))
Vs Q.P.R (H) 3-0 Win (Michael Owen, Leandro, Guiseppe Prestia)
Vs Leeds (A) 2-2 Draw (Patrick Kisnorbo, Oscar)

WE ARE TOP OF THE LEAGUE!!! Lets just hope we can stay there! Another good month for my team with still 0 losses.
i cant help but feel i do have a slight advantage over some other teams as i have no cups to play. i forgot to set up domestic cups for this team when i made it and i wont play European football until im eligible through competition.
Still... the team is performing well and thats all that matters :)
LEAGUE POSITION:1st (48 points)

Vs Charlton (H) 3-2 Win (Oscar (2), Michael Owen)
Vs Cardiff (A) 2-0 Win (Michael Owen(2))
Vs Millwall (H) 2-0 Win (Michael Owen(2))
Vs Reading (H) 3-0 Loss ()

First loss of the season against Reading after 18 games unbeaten! not happy to lose 3-0 in a fairly even game. Jack Cork got himself sent off in the 28th minute and from then on we just didnt stand a chance.
Still... im top of the table, ahead by 8 points but anymore games like the Reading one and i can see the second half of the season being a hard one.

Lets just hope they turn things around quickly
