Sometimes I really really HATE football. This was THAT month. The month from hell. Nothing clicked right. Everyone wanted to play like little shits, missing easy goals, letting easy goals in, and getting sent off.
:/ Great month for you...

UEFA Tightens French Continental Qualification

United States
Gold Cup Group Stage
United States 5 - 1 Suriname

United States 2 - 1 Guatemala

United States 2 - 0 Canada

Group Results

Easy qualification for the knockout round. The only team we'll have to worry about is Mexico, but we'll have to stay focused if we want to repeat as Gold Cup champions.

United States
Gold Cup Knockout
Quarterfinal: United States 3 - 0 Curacao

Semifinal: United States 3 (4 penalties) - 3 (3 penalties) Costa Rica

Final: United States 2 - 3 Honduras

What a real disappointment, we were really unlucky to lose to Honduras. We should have won the Gold Cup, but we didn't.

AS Monaco
July 1 Transfer Update


I have a habit of not renewing anyone who has less than 3* potential.



1.7 million euros:

3 million euros:
good signings there mate but what happened to Monaco's riches? Unlucky against Honduras as well.

AS Monaco

Feyenoord 2 - 4 AS Monaco

Alaves 0 - 4 AS Monaco

The special one: The chairman keeps injecting lots of cash into the club, and I have a 1.8 million euros per week wage budget, but the board is being kind of stingy with the transfer budget, it's a bit less than 20 million eurs.

United States
Turkey 1 - 2 United States

This was a pretty good performance, Guy Dunseth made an incredible goal to win it for us. Even though he is so young, he is ready for an international spot and I want to get him ready for the next World Cup.

AS Monaco
August 2015

AJ Auxerre 1 - 0 AS Monaco

AS Monaco 1 - 0 AS Saint-Etienne

OGC Nice 0 - 3 AS Monaco

AS Monaco 6 - 3 AS Nancy-Lorraine

Transfers and Other News

August 31: Mehdi Beneddine's contract with AS Monaco mutually terminated.


United States
Cyprus 0 - 4 United States

Pretty much just a fitness test, I knew they would win, it was just a matter of how much. Four goals is a pretty decent margin, and we didn't let them score, so I'm happy.

AS Monaco
September 2015



Toulouse FC 1 - 3 AS Monaco

AS Monaco 3 - 0 FC Lorient

Coupe de Ligue Third Round
AS Saint-Etienne 1 - 0 AS Monaco

AS Monaco 3 - 1 OM

FC Sochaux-Montbe 0 - 1 AS Monaco

Transfers and Other News

September 12: Marcelo Estigarribia suffered a torn calf muscle against Toulouse FC and is out 4 months
September 26: Almamy Toure suffered a torn groin against OM and will be out 7-8 weeks
September 29: Atletico Madrid will sell Mario Suarez to AS Monaco for 9 million euros. The transfer will occur on January 1.


Other than the Coupe de Ligue, we had a perfect month. Rhayner is not as good of a player as I had hoped, but I can still make use of his pace coming off the bench, I will just have to make sure to keep him as a winger since he is terrible as the lone striker. Toure and Estigarribia's injuries hurt us and will test our depth.

United States
Luxembourg 0 - 2 United States

I hate it when I give the wrong team-talk, I think it prevented us from winning by more. However, going into someone else's home, winning by at least two goals, and being in firm control of a game is never a bad thing. Like my own side, sides like Cyprus and Luxembourg are trying to prove themselves against tougher competition.
