#45952 patrick1 : i reckon maximum wins in that group though olympiakos might put up a good battle and perhaps genoa but newcastle have a superior squad and should win the group with ease but i truly am loving this memorable story :)

I am hoping for all wins and as many clean sheets as possible and Thx pal your comments are very much appreciated and thats the kind of comment that keeps me goin with the story and I'm gonna proper bash the game tonight so more updates to come :D

Europa League Group Stage -

Olympiakos 1 - 3 Newcastle - Evandro - Muniain, Tiote, Sturridge

Carling Cup 4th Round -

Newcastle 2 - 0 Hull - Tiote(2)


A great month overall, my league results were ok because I am still unbeaten after 6 games but I think I deserved wins At West Brom and Liverpool but I haven't won away yet which is worrying but I'll battle on. I was very with my result against Olympiakos because they are probably the 2nd best team in the group so good things are ahead in Europe hopefully :) and a good result against Hull means I am in with a chance of winning the Carling Cup for a second season running.

Europa League Group Table:


A great end to the year :) Deceber was a great month for me with a fantastic result against Chelsea and to make the win sweater John Terry scored an own goal LOL!!! I was dissapointed with the result agains Man Utd because Cabaye missed an 86th minute penalty that would have put me top, but oh well. A good result away at exeter means that I host Birmingham in the semi finals so I should get to the Carling Cup final ;) Two great wins in the Europa League means that I was the only team to have won every game in the Group Stages :D So I will now look on at 2015 which can hopefully bring me more success to the Toon :D

Overall not a bad month, the only problem that I currently have is drawing to many games and I feel this might stop me from winning the Title, but I'll have a look at tinkering with my tactics to try and take more of the chances that we are getting. 2 good results agains Birmingham means that I will be in the Carling Cup
Final for the second season running but Man City will be standing in my way :( and good stuff against Charlton means that my hopes for success in the FA cup could be made reality :)

Overall a good month for Newcastle, 2 good results in the league against Liverpool and Bolton but poor finishing let me down at the Emerites :( After a scare in France I manged to pull through and beat Renais at home comfortably to get through to the next roound of the Europa Leage :D And finally a great win in the FA Cup against West ham means that I'm still in with a chance of winning the cup :D
Hey mate, nice story! Youve been getting some good results and things are going well for you. Could you post a screenshot of your squad please, and a screenshot of the player stats (like top scorer, assists etc).

Some of your signing have been great, especially Sigorsson and Niang, but Varane for 77mil?? Seems too much dude. It might be an idea, and this is only a suggestion mate, to not sign anyone for a while, and maybe get rid of the deadweight, because you need your team to gel. Then you will achieve top results. But at the moment, it seems as if the team is finding it difficult because there are always new faces, and people leave...theres no stability. I suggest maybe keep 2 players for each position, and get rid of the rest. So ideally youll have a squad of around 22 players. Maybe even less.

Also have you considered looking at Hazard or Felipe Anderson for some real creativity in the middle. They both work phenomenally well!

But yeah, keep up the good work mate :)
My suggestion would be have 22 senior nakulp said "2 for each position" in your first team...all senior players or one or two youth if they are good enough...and then have another 11 players in your reserves made up of your best youngsters that you haven't loaned out or can't break into your first team just yet as extra back-ups :)
I'm glad your both enjoying my story :D I'll definatley take into account what youve both said and at the end of the season I will be moving alot of players on but I would have thought my team would have gelled by now because I've used the same squad all season as I dont really buy players in January. I'll post screenshots of my squad when I finish work tonight :D

My team stats (premier league)


Overall a great month :) Man City had some bad results and with me beating them 2-1 I went above them in the league but Man Utd are 9 points clear but I have a game in hand with 7 games left so the title wont come to the toon this season probably :( Great results against Olympiakos in the Europa League means that I have an easy Quarter final tie against Sporting Lisbon and if I get through I will face Liverpool or Valencia so happy days :D
