well, is it okey if I cry a bit?

Good reading, but it seems to easy Neal! And from what I heard this year, the pro's have choosen to kill the AMC roles. But anyway, I will actually put this story on my shortcuts, even on my keyboard shortcuts - just next to my private section of "good-reading-when-alone-and-got-some-feelin'"

Good luck mate!
He's obv using the editor for dem results :P. Good work Neal, but LAWL, YOU DREW AGAINST A.C. MILAN. LAWL
alexthyberg: Glad you enjoyed it :P

Pauker: I'm not cheating, Juve are just that bad :)) And yes I drew Milan but that's because they actually try to play well ;)
Even though I despise Inter, I'm definitely gonna give this story a read :P
NVDTahir: If you get all the way through, you'll be a Nerazzurri faithful by the end ;)

November and December Results

Sevilla 1-2 Inter

Champions League
Adam Maher (25)
Lorenzo Crisetig (32)
Neil Taylor (88)
Josep Ilicic (90+3)
Lorenzo Crisetig

Sevilla gave us a right run for our money in this match. They beat us out in possession, shots, and shots on target, never a good sign. However, two individual moments of genius from Adam and Lorenzo sealed a very important win in the Champions League for us.

Cesena 0-2 Inter

Serie A
Philippe Coutinho (45+1)
Lorenzo Insigne (90)
Andrea Ranocchia

Cesena didn't even manage a shot on target, which shows how much we dominated them, but defensively our opponents were excellent. Thankfully, they chose to lose concentration late in each half when we took our chances quite clinically, which I am pleased with.

Inter 1-0 Napoli

Serie A
Mattia Destro (pen 4)
Lucas Digne

We had over 70% possession and over 20 shots, but a combination of a top performance from Kenneth Vermeer and poor finishing on our part kept the scoreline down. We won courtesy of an early Mattia Destro penalty, his first goal since his hattrick against Lazio.

Inter 1-0 Leverkusen

Champions League
Mattia Destro (8)
Alvaro Pereira

Again, it was an early Mattia Destro goal paving the way for our victory. We dominated the match with 68% possession and not allowing the German side a single shot. I'm pleased with our performances and our 18 points out of 18 to win our group.

Udinese 1-3 Inter

Serie A
Adam Maher (31)
Isco Alcorcon (42)
Lukas Podolski (53)
Mattia Destro (73)
Alvaro Pereira

We lined up with a 4-2-3-1 this match, a pretty large change from my now customary 4-3-3. Coutinho, Isco, and Maher proved why, absolutely dominating the space in behind Mattia Destro, and three of the four attacking players managed to find the net. Though this tactic is by no means first choice, it seems a good backup.

Inter 3-0 Napoli

Coppa Italia
Mattia Destro (39)
Raheem Sterling (46)
Lorenzo Insigne (88)
Omar Carrasco

We start our Coppa defense with a strong home victory to Napoli. My front 3 all found the net, and Destro scored in his 4th match running, which looks promising. Youngster Omar Carrasco also played very well in only his 2nd appearance.


We have 2 games in hand due to the Club World Cup, about which I will update you all on later. However, the fact that we still have the lead shows just how much we've dominated the domestic scene this season.


As you can see, we absolutely dominated on the European scene as well, winning all 6 matches. I think we are in a very strong position to try and be the first team for a long time to defend our UEFA Champions League crown. The 1st Knockout Round draw is as follows:

LOSC Lille, though a good side, is a team we should be able to beat. From there, who knows?


Mattia Destro is easily my Player of the Month(s) scoring 4 goals in the last 4 games. I hope he can continue in this form and keep competition with Ademilson strong!


It was a great couple of months for us as we won every match (bar that late draw against Milan not in this update) and we retain our position atop the table, even though we have 2 games in hand. The Club World Cup fell in the middle of this, a chance for us to win a third trophy before half the season was up, and I'll update on later. I'm happy Destro found his scoring boots as well, as he is key to the side. The January transfer window looms, and I await potential business now...
Already dropping points? Come on man, I said I wanted all wins AT LEAST IN THE SERIE A. WHAT THE HELL? Fail to reach my expectations.
What the hell happened to Roma, they've been shite since Totti left o.O
Pauker: Sorry, if I win the sextuple will you forgive me? :(

Shanked: It's sad, but it's also funny just how much you referenced my upcoming FM 14 story ;)


Despite the very important sounding name, the Club World Cup isn't all that it may seem at first glance. The winners of each of the confederations' continental tournaments (e.g. the UEFA Champions League) are pitted together to see which club is truly the greatest in the world.

As always, the European champion Inter Milan will be the favorite, but it's always close fought in the end. The Nerazzurri entered the competition at the semifinal stage because of it's heavy superiority compared to other clubs, and was drawn against Moroccan side Wydad Casablanca.

The African side, despite looking far weaker on paper, put up a strong fight throughout the match. They could not break down the Italian side but didn't allow Inter's super attack to create any true chances throughout the entire match. However, half an hour in, it was a 25 yard volley from striker Mattia Destro that gave Inter a 1-0 lead that saw them to the final.

Awaiting them at the Etihad Stadium of the Docklands was Brazil and South American champions Sao Paulo. To make the match even more special it would Adryan's first and likely only match he wold play against his ex-club of Inter after making the big money switch to Brazil after falling out of favor.

The Brazilian playmaker didn't have much of a chance to influence the match, however, as Inter dominated and manifested the gulf in class directly from the first kick, ending with 60% possession and 9 more shots. The end of the match couldn't come soon enough for Sao Paulo, though, as Inter began the scoring as early as 11 minutes in.

It was Isco Alcorcon who whipped in the corner kick, a brilliant delivery that found the head of an unmarked Giuseppe Bellusci to hammer home at the far post, leaving goalkeeper Agustin Marchesin with no chance.

Inter piled on more and more pressure until at last, almost on the stroke of an hour, it was the exact same set up that doubled the Nerazzurri's advantage. Isco again delivered a corner, this time from the opposite side, but it was Bellusci again who headed home for his second of the game. The match ended with a final score of 2-0.

The Player of the Tournament winner Bellusci said after the match, "Well, I rarely score one goal, let alone two! This is a great feeling, we always love to win trophies, and I'm ecstatic to have helped."

Giuseppe Bergomi was also very happy, and in a lighthearted manner commented, "A treble, and we're not halfway through the season. Give me another 6 months, and we'll have the sextuple if we keep on playing like this!"
Good Win! :D
Congratulation on this new trophy! :P
