how are you performing in the league so far . i also think u need to do some about the lack of discipline within your squad because you seem to get a few red card s??

unlucky in the champions league
Yes, it looks like something needs to be done about discipline, cause giving them fines dont work, well, no players have recived 2 red cards yet, so they might be taking the hint, but doesn't mean everyone else are free to go and get a red card.

Here you got my league standing at the moment
30. March 2013

Season 2 - A good run

Even tho its the latest of the games I'm gonna talk about I'm gonna bring it up first. An amazing game against Tottenham, My players preformed way over what can be expected of them, just take a look at the stats and the rating of the players after the game

With it all ending 6-0!

Could you post a picture of Rangers squad, please? oh and if you don't mind, Brentford as well :P love this story :) doing an incredible job!
Great job at Arsenal. How is Joel Valencia for you? I also got him in my game but he's still in my U-18 squad. Maybe get a strong LB like Fabio from MU.

#50020 IronStark : Great job at Arsenal. How is Joel Valencia for you? I also got him in my game but he's still in my U-18 squad. Maybe get a strong LB like Fabio from MU.

Hi Stark, Valencia is ok for me, he gets alot of praise, but do feel he isn't consistent enugh yet, even tho he has an average rating over 7 on 5 appearances this season. I brought him straight into the first team when i got him first season, as rotation and backup, worked very well for that purpose for me, especially since i paid £1.2M for him. I have sent him on a loan this season. He is an attacking midfielder, so LB wouldnt be the best of positions i think, are many other alternatives out there that will be better, even tho they are harder to find for that position, is the reason i bought Jose Angel.

Season 3 -

First off I changed my manager name in the game to Bruce Banner, cause come on, who will piss off Bruce Banner?

So over to some news:

Seemes that Borini has been brought into the Italian squad to replace Mario Ballotelli, this confused me a bit, they have to see something that I don't, because i haven't played Borini once this season, nor much at all previous season. I might be playing him very wrong, either way, he simply does not work for me. But being in the national team should increase the price of the player, so not complaining.

Alos, I was offered the job as manager for Denmark, wouldn't have been the worst of jobs, but have built a team now and don't want abandon that quite yet.

So over to the games i have played, as usual I'm dividing it up as to what competition it's played in.

Premier League
Arsenal 5-1 Q.P.R.
Birmingham 0-2 Arsenal
Arsenal 2-1 Liverpool
Manchester United 1-0 Arsenal
Arsenal 1-0 Fullham
West Brom 2-1 Arsenal
Arsenal 2-0 Stoke
West Ham 4-2 Arsenal (after falling beind 2-0 in the first 10 min)

Champions League

PSV 0-3 Arsenal
Arsenal 2-1 Rangers
Arsenal 0-0 Basel

Lastly I'm on the lookout for a new Assistant Manager, have started a tread on it here, would love some input on who to bring in. Thinking of maybe being an ass and sacking him beofre he retires so that I can bring in a new one faster, but doubt i will do that.
Thanks for the help with Valencia. Wish you luck with Angel, hopefully he'll do great for your great squad.
