Well we went and lost our game in hand we had on Liverpool in the Manchester Derby and any small hope of the Title was gone, We ended the season well though with a comfortable 3-1 win over Fulham with Nani netting a second half brace.

So their it is we finish in 3rd place behind Chelsea and Winners Liverpool with Everton a bit further away in 4th whilst Arsenal dont even make it into Europe.
Swansea are the shock team to go down along with Aston Villa and an unlucky Sheff Wed who go down on goal difference only.

May 2016 - End of Season Stats and Awards

Squad in Order of Most Apps

View attachment 219106

Top Goalscorer - James Wilson - 23 Goals - He was on fire for the early part of the season but im guessing is young age showed in the last few months as his goals dried up during the crucial stage of the season.

View attachment 219105

Best Player - Juan Mata- Probably one of the best players in the league at this moment in time with 18 goals and 15 assists.

View attachment 219104

Best Young Player - Luke Shaw- He was injury free for the season playing well over 50 games for us and establishing himself for England too

Saido Janko is given a free transfer, hes always moaning and is probably our 6th choice RB with Rafael,Youth Intake player Lyons and Varela natural RB's ahead of him along with Jones and Smalling playing in that position.

Fosu Mensah moves to Feyenoord for a small fee, He was never going to make it at this level and i have so many options at DC and a lot of them have easily got 10 years ahead of them.

View attachment 219037

Despite Liverpool winning the League Title they are only seen as 3rd favourites to retain it with Chelsea and Us ahead of them. They have brought in a few new players but Man City with their new manager have been the big spenders this summer

Yeah my missus has ordered fm 16 for me but not the beta so got 2 more weeks of playing this yet, might have less and less detail and just try and bosh out the seasons to see what my youngsters look like, may go into the new fm doing something similar with Man Utd but able to bring in homegrown players like Pique, Ronaldo, Pogba and Shawcross

A pretty good start to the new season smashing Crystal Palace 4-0 with Phil Jones the unlikely Hattrick Hero! We then managed to just about ****** a 1-1 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, we ended the month with a decent 3-0 win against bogey team Newcastle with Mata getting a Hattrick this time round.

So Wilson got rid of his goal drought in spectacular fashion netting a Hattrick against Tottenham in a 5-2 romp, we then managed to come from 3-1 down against Schalke to ****** a 3-3 draw.
Either side of that shocking Cup game we won a couple of impressive away matches against Everton and West Brom.
We ended the month by putting 7 past APOEL with Nick Powell on fire with a couple of amazing goals, were scoring here there and everywhere at the moment but conceding a lot too.

3 points clear at the top of the table and the only undefeated team left in the league after just 6 matches, I knew Balotelli and Liverpool wouldnt have a season like they did last year.

Best Player - Mata - 7 Goals and 6 Assists - Probs the best player in the League

Much better start to this season. What does lingard's stats look like? Good enough for your team?
Probably not going to make the starting 11 but towards the end of last season i struggled with my wingers with so many injuries so good to have him around.

We started the month well with a couple of impressive league wins against Watford and Southampton before an important win over Shakhtar at Home in the Champions League.
We very luck come the end of the month as we drew with West Ham 4-4 with Wilson scoring a 91st minute equalizer before drawing 1-1 Man City with Hernandez netting a late equalizer this time.

Still undefeated after 10 games but we have dropped down to 2nd place after those couple of recent draws with Arsenal taking over the top spot.

Best Player - Juan Mata Again - 9 Goals and 9 Assists in just 12 games.
