you join me in january 2012 as this is my second season in charge of barcelona

2011 - 2012 Review


after such a strong start to the season where we stayed undefeated until december, the turn of the year wasnt so strong as we dropped a fair few points on the road. but we held our nerve and won the Spanish La Liga by 4 points

we triumphed over granada in the Spanish cup final to win the domestic double

[center]I would have to say im disappointed with our performance in the club world championship by losing to Monterray 1-0 in the final after completely dominating the match

And to wrap up the season we lost in the semi final of the champions league to manchester united after a 1-0 loss on aggregate

Transfers In & Out

So that wraps up 2011-12. next update will be january 2013 which ill be posting later today .. hope you enjoy

2012-13 The Reign continues

We have reached the midway point of the season and ill be doing a report of whats happened thus far

Tactics

the tactics we will be employing this year are 2 different tactics then what everyone would be use to see. but with enough work and game time with this tactic i beleive it will be quite successful
With the formation ill be using our philosophy is to keep it at a slow tempo with short passing to try and pick apart the opposition and dominate possession

La Liga

after going through 17 games of the season we currently sit 6 points clear of Real Madrid. ( were 1 win away from breaking La Liga record of 16 wins in a row )
with 19 games left of the season remaining we will definitly not be taking anything for granted and i will make sure my players no we must finish the job off

Champions League

Although we qualified from the group stage im not very happy that we didnt finish first and ensure an easier matc hin the round of 16

Champions League round of 16 Draw
Post your predictions

Transfers In & out

Ganso - $74m + Clauses
Mikel San Jose - $40m

Aleksandr Hleb - Free
Henrique - $1.3m - Benfica
Andreu Fontas $1.7m - Granada
Jonathan Dos Santos - $2.3m - Porto


Updates will now be done monthly. hope you enjoy
This second tactic looks like a pretty good one...might be risky with teams not as good as barca?

Do you concede many goals ?

i dont concede hardly any goals . just look at the ladder after 17 games :D tbh with you our oppostion rarely have shot because we average about 71% possession. also won very comfortably against Real madrid
you should actually try tactics with another teams , any tactics will works with Barcelona
thats the biggest load ive heard in a long time. and ive used it on several teams. same results
alright guys i havnt updated in a while . next update coming soon
that first tactic looks interesting as hell! how are you doing with it? or do you play with the second one?
I used your second tactic with Castilla and I'd did def work!!! Wingbacks were quick to press the ball and get it back

August - September


to prepare the team for our title defence i organised 9 friendlies to get the boys into as good a shape as possible
after our friendlies i can say where pretty pleased with how it went, could have possibly once more convincingly against some sides but overall the results really dont matter that much

Spanish Super Cup leg 1 & 2

Barcelona vs Villareal
Nou Camp
First Leg

Lionel Messi
Gerard Pique
Lionel Messi
Mikel San Jose
Ariel Nahulpian
Bojan

Final Score: 5-1
Possession 66 - 34


Villareal vs Barcelona
El Madrigal
Second Leg

Iker Muniain
Xavi
Alexis Sanchez

Final Score 0-2
Possession 32 - 68

Injury News: Alexis Sanchez has been ruled out for 11 - 13 months with a broken lower leg


La Liga


after the first 6 games of the season we sit pretty up the top of La Liga, main highlight of hte month would be our 6-1 demolition of Real Madrid
Might want to sell Alexis Sanchez ASAP, this 1 year injury doesn't seem alright :P
nah mate I won't be selling Alexis Sanchez because he is only 24 and still has plenty to offer. and last season he was my fans player of the year
and saying that noone would buy him anywayz

October


with October being filled with international matches we only had 3 matches in october, we still managed to win all 3 which still keeps us on top of La Liga

Champions League


this seasons Champions League has seen us Draw Ac Milan , Stuttgart and Glasgow Rangers

Matchday 1

Rangers 2-2 Barcelona
Stuttgart 0-2 AC Milan

Matchday 2

AC Milan 1-0 Rangers
Barcelona 3-0 Stuttgart

Matchday 3

At the halfway point of teh group stage this is how we stand
