If Bosingwa doesn't do so well consider Montoya he is young and is worth hardly anything.
why on earth did u sell coloccini ? he is your best defender. and you replaced him with isaac vorsah ?

Well, technically I replaced him with Bonucci of Juventus - who appears to be a brilliant buy so far. Colo was getting old I wanted to get the most money I could get out of him. True its a big loss but I think we can cope well. We'll just have to see.

So, we've just had a pretty short pre-season because I was spending most of the time on arranging transfers and hiring staff. Just 3 friendlies and good results in all.




But the thing I've been waiting for...the first game of the season...against....SUNDERLAND!!!

The Tyne-Wear Derby

Formation - 4-1-2-2-1
-------------Krul--------------
Bosingwa-Musacchio-Bonucci-Santon
------------Tioté--------------
--------Riquelme-Dzagoev-------
Dempsey------------------Ben Arfa
------------Cissé--------------
Unfortunately for us Cabaye picked up an injury in a friendly, he was available to play but his condition wasn't that great so I decided to have him as a sub.

Start of the game went really well with Dzagoev and Riquelme dominating the midfield and playing out through balls to Dempsey, Ben Arfa and Cissé. We had around 10 shots just in the first 30 minutes but Westwood in the Sunderland goal was brilliant, keeping everything out. We finally got our breakthrough in the 36th minute as Ben Arfa picked out Cissé's run through the defence and the Senegal man shot it into the bottom corner. Nothing special for a while though, Sunderland couldn't even manage a proper attack.
It was the same after half-time, we dominated, but didn't get goals. Sunderland's 3 corners were their attacking highlight of the match. Finally on the 67th minute Ben Arfa beat John O'Shea and crossed it into sub Matt Phillips who headed in from close range. A solid 2-0 victory for us.
Unfortunately, we picked up three injuries in this game, Dempsey out for just 2-3 days, Bosingwa for 11 days, but the biggest blow - Papiss Cissé will be out for 4-5 weeks..Thankfully we have Demba Ba.

I'm sorry guys I'll have to end this story. My bro accidentally deleted my save, and I didn't have a backup. I don't feel like doing it over again so I will start another story with a new team.
Unlucky Mate, Fmregen will be happy there is one less newcastle save up against his lol
Also, anyone know any good all-round strikers? I've been sniffing around Malonga from some Italian club who I think I can get for 2m. Looking for someone with decent pace, heading and finishing (composure also for 1v1s). Dame N'Doye is good all-round but his composure is 8 or thereabouts so can't see him scoring in 1v1s.
how bout rondon from malaga or even carlos fierro.

In breaking news the FA have launched an investigation into match fixing. Keen FM Scouter FMRegen27 has been taken in for questioning and is "co-operating fully with inquiries" :D :D
