Here you join me on my adventure to major success with a team who have been tipped for major glory but have not really lived up to it yet....

I will be playing with a 4-2-3-1.

My Summer transfers are these so far:

IN : D.Welbeck Man Utd 24M
M.Ter Stegen Gladbach 26M
C.Fierro (FREE) (Joins 24.7.2012)
OUT: Gomes Man City 3.5M
D.Button Blackpool 825K
R.Nelsen Released FREE
D.Parret Bournemouth Loan
B.Khumalo Bologna 250K
L.Angol Released FREE
M.Luongo West Brom 350K

My major pre season results were:

VS Real Madrid W 3-1
VS Sevilla W 2-1

First game of season is in the next update VS Man City
Do Tottenham have a starting budget of £60 million then?

Oh sorry over 48 months. It was about 20 mill I think. Thanks for reading!
Premier Division:
Man City vs Tottenham

As this game came up I felt a bit nervous to see how we faired against a team like city.

Here is the starting line up:

GK: Ter Stegen
LB: Bale
CB: Kaboul
CB: Dawson
RB: Walker
CM: Parker
CM: Huddlestone
LW: Modric
AM: Krancjar
RW: Lennon
ST: Welbeck

Subs Used: Friedal, Van Der Vaart, Livermore

We started well and on the stroke of half time we gained a penalty which Luka modric had no trouble in stepping up to score. Then halfway into the second half Nico Krancjar scored a fantastic free kick in which to double our lead. But 7 minutes later Carlos Tevez's shot was fumbled by Ter stegen to make it 2-1. Then I decided to bring on Friedal as I couldnt afford to concede another easy goal. But much to my pleasure we held out for a win that I really didn't expect. Hopefully we can build from this.

MOM: Niko Krancjar
Next Fixture: Vs Aalesund (A) Euro Cup Qualifiers

LB: Bale
CB: Kaboul

RB: Walker
CM; Parker
CM: Livermore
LW: Krancjar
AM: Van Der Vaart
RW: Modric
ST: Adebayor

All I can say, how did we not convert...we had plenty of chances....a bore draw 0-0. We have to improve for the second leg.

MOM: Bale

In other news we have been drawn against Nottingham forest in the League Cup 3rd Round
kaboul topscorer:)) , why you play bale LB? he can't show his qualities
#55853 victoras15 : kaboul topscorer:)) , why you play bale LB? he can't show his qualities
AML with a teamwork tactic, deployed as WINGER with SUPPORT, and the striker as target man to feet = Bale is god
ok I appreciate the feedback but I am short of players who can play left back, may look to integrate a better ful back into the team. Thanks for reading btw! And Kaboul is playing brilliant. Assou-Ekotto comes back in a couple of weeks so bale will fill in till then
Update on left back....I have made a 11.75 million pound bid to bring Fabio of Man Utd to white Hart Lane. Watch this space...........
Withdrawn offer for fabio as they want 30 million, far too much for back up. If anyone can recommend a good left back, that would be appreciated
