Looks like P$G bought your logo :P

Marseille have bought Nice's U19 logo too it seems =/
Great job Krupesh, love the new tactic, even it it is very... different.anyway keep it up and hopefully the title will be yours soon. Maybe we should all chip in to buy your log back from P$G.
Great results Krupesh! You're doing a great job... even with your strange new tactics! ;) Interesting new prospects... Keep it up! :)
Edu: The tactic was created by an FMScout user called Michael. I decided to write him in to the story and that's where the "Impromptu Meeting" post came from :p hahaha I just don't understand why P$G did that

Gambit: Thanks buddy I appreciate the support! Hopefully these prospects get a chance soon. I have no money to spend so it is a challenge

January Transfer Window

The transfer window is open and having bought out the clause included in Hugo Lloris’ transfer to Tottenham Hotspur, as well as him reaching 15 league games, I have €1,800,000 to spend. I have kept my eye on Francesco Bardi and his contract is expiring in 6 months. He would be a perfect replacement for Remy Vercoutre and potentially could be my first choice keeper next season even though he is only 20. Another player who is seeing his contract expiring is FC Twente’s centre back Douglas. However I face a battle to sign him, as I know there is heavy interest in him from all over Europe. These two could join at the end of the season but we will have to wait and see.

A few days have passed and Bardi has signed a new contract with Inter and Douglas agreed to join my rivals Marseille at the end of the season so that was those two ruled out. There was only one player that joined us in this transfer window. That was Lucas Zen from Botafogo. Another utility player, he can play defensive midfield, centre back and right back. With a release clause in his current contract of €1,700,000 I was more than happy to pay this and I want to develop him to play as a right back so I will focus his training on this position.

I decided to check up on Bafetimbi Gomis and Lisandro Lopez to see how they were faring at Arsenal. I laughed when I found out and knew the decision to sell them was the right one. Gomis is in the reserves and has barely played. Lopez has only played 9 games for the first team, starting 8 and 1 as a sub. They are being wasted there but this proves I made money for the right reasons, as we haven’t needed their firepower so far.

Lucas Zen looks pretty awesome!

Zen (if used right) can become a little more than a utility man ;)
Glenn: I hope he can develop! This summer is doing to lead to a few players leaving so I hope I'm given some transfer funds

Paddy: I hope so :p he'll get a lot more game time next season so should develop nicely

Match Reports January

Olympique Lyonnais 3 - 1 Brest

Sunday 6th January 2013 – Coupe de France 9th Rd – Stade de Gerland, Lyon – Att. 23,932

Lyon starting XI – Vercoutre, Reveillere, Lovren, Umtiti, Dabo, Hughes, Fofana, Briand, Colazo, Watt, Lacazette

Subs Malbranque, Gonalons, Giaccherini

Goals Watt (7,77), Colazo (82)

Heading in to this game I knew we would be able to control and score in this game. I lined up 4-2-2 with wide wingers and got off to a great start with Tony scoring in the 7th minute. We finished with 61% possession and got 8 shots on target. An easy win in a game that was always in our hands, we went through to the next round.

Toulouse 2 - 1 Olympique Lyonnais

Wednesday 9th January 2013 – Ligue 1 – Stade Municipal, Toulouse – Att. 21,291

Lyon starting XI – Vercoutre, Reveillere, Muniesa, Umtiti, Dabo, Hughes, Mvuemba, Briand, Malbranque, Watt, Lacazette

Subs Fierro, Giaccherini

Goals Lacazette (76)

Toulouse were going to be tough opposition. They sat in 5th and were chasing European places, whilst we needed the win to keep the pressure on Montpellier at the top. We lined up 4-3-3 in a defensive formation ready to play on the counter but this didn’t seem to be the way forward. We controlled possession, having 64% and got 3 shots on target but couldn’t convert enough and conceded a poor last minute goal to lose the game. We were 1 point behind Montpellier after this game and were lucky it wasn’t more as they drew their game.

Troyes 0 - 0 Olympique Lyonnais

Saturday 12th January 2013 – Ligue 1 – Stade de l’Aube, Troyes – Att. 16,753

Lyon starting XI – Vercoutre, Reveillere, Gonalons, Umtiti, Muniesa, Fofana, Mvuemba, Giaccherini, Hughes, Colazo, Fierro

Subs Watt, Lacazette
A poor game. We lined up using Michael’s tactic and I thought we would annihilate Troyes. It didn’t happen and it was a bore draw. A very even game but Umtiti got himself sent off in the 58th minute and this didn’t help our cause.

Olympique Lyonnais 3 – 2 e Lorient

Tuesday 15th January 2013 – Coupe de la Ligue – Stade de Gerland, Lyon – Att. 41,044

Lyon starting XI – De Vries, Mboumbouni, Lovren, Muniesa, Briand, Malbranque, Gonalons, Hughes, Colazo, Benzia, Watt

Subs Vercoutre, Fofana, Lacazette

Goals Benzia (68), Hughes (77), Lacazette (106)

A game that went to extra time when I didn’t need it to. Jeremie Aliadiere really made me angry with an 83rd minute equaliser after we dominated the game. We lined up 3-5-2 and controlled the game, with Mboumbouni playing his first game for the club. But this win put us in the Final of the cup against a Ligue 2 team. I was extremely proud of the youngsters in this team, fighting their way to win a trophy for the club.

Match Reports January Cont’d

Olympique Lyonnais 1 – 0 Evian TG

Saturday 19th January 2013 – Ligue 1 – Stade de Gerland, Lyon – Att. 25,430

Lyon starting XI – Vercoutre, Reveillere, Gonalons, Lovren, Dabo, Mvuemba, Fofana, Briand, Grenier, Giaccherini, Watt

Subs Hughes, Muniesa, Lacazette

Goals Lacazette (86)

A game where we could have scored 4 or 5 but only got 1. Lacazette with a late winner after we controlled 62% possession and 11 shots on target. This win put us on top of the table and I knew we had a lot of work to stay there, especially as we still had games against P$G, Marseille and Montpellier left.

Olympique Lyonnais 1 – 0 PSG

Wednesday 23rd January 2013 – Coupe de France, 10th rd – Stade de Gerland, Lyon – Att. 39,076

Lyon starting XI – Vercoutre, Dabo, Gonalons, Lovren, Muniesa, Malbranque, Fofana, Mvuemba, Briand, Colazo, Watt

Subs Grenier, Abenzoar, Lacazette

Goals Watt (9)

A big game against money spenders P$G and we came away again with a 1-0 win. We lined up defensively, working on the counter and caught them cold with a 9th minute goal. Tony Watt, who has been a source of more than 15 of our goals this season scored and then went off injured with a dead leg on the verge of half time. We didn’t give P$G a sniff all game and Alex got himself sent off in the 60th minute, making it easier for us to hold on for the win.

Valenciennes 1 - 4 Olympique Lyonnais

Saturday 26th January 2013 – Ligue 1 – Stade de Hainaut, Valenciennes – Att. 15,773

Lyon starting XI – Vercoutre, Abenzoar, Gonalons, Lovren, Umtiti, Mvuemba, Fofana, Giaccherini, Grenier, Colazo, Benzia

Subs Muniesa, Malbranque

Goals Benzia (7), Grenier (11), Giaccherini (39), Mvuemba (45+1)

We lined up using Michael’s 4231 and battered Valenciennes from start to finish. If it weren’t for their keeper, we would have scored 6 or 7 goals. I was pleased with the team’s effort and the chances created. We keep jumping up and down between 1st and 2nd with Montpellier now but we were 1 point ahead of them after the weekend’s matches. After just expecting to get in to the European places, I am thrilled to be fighting it out at the top.
3 great results k1. Great work. :)

Some good results. Where are Valenciennes in the league? I had a save with Lille and they were on fire but you've obviously put them in their place. Well done
Great results mate, especially the win against P$G! The signings look class, and remember that tactic, I use the same one! :)
TSO: Cheers mate! A tough loss to take but it hasn't stopped our march forward

Paddy: Thanks bro. Valenciennes were 17th I think when I played them. I'm a month ahead of the updates so have February fixtures to update. Will put up the league table once I have done that.

Jason: Thanks mate! P$G are struggling and are 8th I think so all that money hasn't helped them. The signings should develop with lots of game time and even though lots of the team are either under 20 or just 21/22 they're handling the pressure haha I've found the tactic to be a bit hit and miss but against some teams it's amazing!
