Great story so far, good luck in the Champion's League knockout stages!

December Update


Due to the number of games in December i just screenshot the whole fixtures in one.



Very good month. A win against Dortmund was increbible but didn't mean anything. I missed out on 1st place in my Champions League group by 1 goal difference. Carlos Fierro had an outsatnding month with 7 goals



7 players join Norwich!


Its the first day of the transfer window and 7 players join Norwich city! All of whom are under the age of 19. Some of the players have been touted as future stars. Here they are:

Mariano Soriano - 2.4m - Levante

Juan Jose Romero - 750k - Getafe

Joaquin - Free - Almeria

Andre Henrique - 2.3m - Atletic Mineiro

File - 775k - Corinthians

Paulo - 4.8m - Corinthians

Samuel Castellijo - 150k - Malaga

All these players are destined for great things but the two that stand out are Soriano and Paulo. These two players could become huge names in football and Norwich have done well to secure such talented youngsters
Nice to see how all of them but Paulo go straight to the reserves...

Liverpool must hate playing you now! I think you've beaten them everytime you've played them! :P


Last 16 Draw




Very difficult draw for Norwich. However the tie does hold some historical resemblance.

Bayern Munich vs Norwich City was a first leg match in the 1993–94 UEFA Cup second round, played on 20 October 1993. The match was won by Norwich City, who beat Bayern Munich 2–1.
The match, "an apparent mismatch", was a huge upset in European football; it has been described as "the pinnacle of Norwich City's history" and it was the only defeat ever inflicted by a British club on Bayern Munich in their Olympic stadium. That it was Norwich that inflicted the defeat was startling: Norwich were "mere babes at this level", and, according to Norwich player Jeremy Goss, "There's no doubt Bayern assumed it would be easy".
The second leg was played on 3 November 1993 and was drawn 1–1, meaning that Norwich won the tie 3–2 on aggregate. They went on to be defeated by eventual champions Internazionale in the third round.
