Your injury problems are unreal!! And I've never known Barca to have so many 1-0 wins lol! But it's credit to you that you've stayed top of the league and remained unbeaten with so many first teamers missing throughout the season!

Thanks for reading, yeah the injuries have been a right pain feel like Suarez hasnt been able to get going at all this season and even Messi has had 4 injuries, Real Madrid dont seem to be faltering themselves either which has made it tough but im having fun that in a weird way its not too easy!

And their it is we win the League by 7 points in the end with Valencia just a further point back, Ronaldo was in top form for Real Madrid topping a whole host of the stat charts but i was impressed with Ter Stegen's 23 clean sheets in the league

May 2018 - End of Season

Top Goalscorer - Lionel Messi - 25 Goals

View attachment 38605

Messi by his standards had a poor season but he still was our top goalscorer with 25 goals, his injuries were a pain though he missed around 16 games this season thanks to all his knocks

Best Player - Philippe Coutinho - 20 Goals, 13 Assists and 11 Man of the matches in a stellar first season for Coutinho, he even missed 10 games through injury!

View attachment 38601

Best Young Player - Ousmane Dembele - Hes not even first choice in the team but with so many injuries to our front three he has still managed to play 29 games and 22 sub appearances with 18 goals and 12 assists

View attachment 38600

Had to just add Abel Ruiz in with this as he bagged 10 goals in 10 starts with 27 sub appearances

The Barcelona Starting 11 is my best eleven from the start of the season but with Alcacer up front instead of Luis Suarez who has been so injury ravaged this season he managed like 4 goals in just 12 games

View attachment 38587

The League Win was amazing for the first season but i really want us to go further in Europe next season and carry on bringing the young players through

View attachment 38580

So Suarez missed over half of the season whilst Coutinho and Messi both missed around a quarter of the season

June/July 2018

Brilliant - The board have decided to scrape plans for the Stadium Expansion because of lack of funds, all they had to do is wait a few weeks and we would have been getting our £130Million TV rights money

View attachment 38519

Cancelled the training facilities upgrade too

View attachment 38518

Barcelona hemorrhage money each month around £24Million goes on wages so in a way i will be glad to see our wage budget go down as we bring in our own youth players and stop paying average players over 150k a week!

Full back Douglas moves on for £2 Million after having been on loan all season

And around a month later heres my big TV Rights Payout

Wow £80Million to not spend this season

It was an all South American World Cup Final as my players have very contrasting Finals as Messi fires Argentina to victory with a Hattrick whilst Paulinho got sent off before half time and Argentina scored all of their goals after his sending off!

Super Cup Final 1st Leg
Real Madrid 1 - 1 Barcelona

View attachment 38275

They hammered our goal but could only find the net once with new signing Harry Kane going off injured which definitely helped us! We had very few chances but it was Umtiti who took it from a corner to net the equalizer

Lets take a look at a couple of the big new Real Madrid signings

First De Ligt joins from Ajax for £20.5Million

View attachment 38274

The other one could well be a season changer for them as Harry Kane joins for £117Million

Messi will miss the return leg

Super Cup Final Leg 2
Barcelona 5 - 1 Real Madrid

View attachment 38271

What an utter destruction of Madrid in the second leg with Harry Kane out injured we managed to dominate the game with Luis Suarez netting a brace and looking like hes finally getting going after an injury hit year last season whilst even Ruiz got a goal!

Back to back Spanish Super Cups for Me

Busquets out for 6 weeks

La Liga
Barcelona 3 - 0 Valencia

View attachment 38267

A dominant performance with Coutinho netting a Hattrick as we start the new league season with a bang beating one of the better teams in the league comfortably

Tough group draw in the Champions League as we face Roma and Liverpool

View attachment 38266

Well their goes my theory that the other teams dont seem to spend as much if you dont as Real Madrid splash £216Million in the summer but that is offset a bit by selling Varane to Man City

Our Summer window consists of a few small transfers out and a few loans, im trying to keep the squad together, i have had offers for fringe players like Andre Gomes and Semedo but up until i have youth players i feel that can come in for them i feel it pointless to sell them for the sake of it

View attachment 38183

PSG Spend the most at a staggering £264Million!

View attachment 38182

It was mainly thanks to the confirmation of the Mbappe deal but they also brought in Neves from Wolves and former Barcelona player Grimaldo for big money too

Messi scores early and late whilst Suarez nets right in the middle of the match in an easy away win

La Liga
Barcelona 8 - 1 Celta

View attachment 38179

Well has the real Luis Suarez finally turned up? We utterly destroy Celta with Suarez netting 4 goals in this game alone the same amount that he scored for the whole of last season

New record for highscoring league game

View attachment 38178

Champions League Groups
Barcelona 3 - 1 Roma

View attachment 38177

A huge win in the Champions League against a good side in Roma with Suarez netting again but it was Coutinho who put in the best display

La Liga
Eibar 1 - 0 Barcelona

View attachment 38176

And then this happens . . . . The same side that were scoring goals for fun have just had a terrible day in front of goal with Luis Suarez playing terribly, hard to believe how quickly things can change!

La Liga
At Bilbao 1 - 0 Barcelona

View attachment 38175

Was it over confidence? As we go from beating the likes of Roma and scoring 8 in a game to losing back to back league games 1-0 and squandering a shed load of chances

Coutinho out for 5 weeks

Alcacer has struggled in front of goal so far this season

I literally have no idea what is happening after those back to back defeats we then turn our form on its head again and smash 6 goals past Malaga including 3 in 3 minutes, they were buggered after Malaga had a man sent off early on

Suarez wins Player of the Month after 8 goals in 5 games

View attachment 38170

All the way down in 5th with 12 points after those 2 defeats but not even Real Madrid were able to pull away just 1 point ahead of us

Champions League Groups
Mainz 1 - 1 Barcelona

View attachment 38114

We struggled for form in last seasons Champions League and that looks set to continue as we only manage a draw against lowly Mainz. Umtiti got the opener but after Sergi Roberto went off injured we went down to 10 man having used up all our subs before they netted a very late equalizer

Roberto out for 5 weeks

La Liga
Barcelona 2 - 0 Las Palmas

View attachment 38112

Suarez and Rakitic get the goals in the first half in a rather straight forward win with Dembele seeming to improve every single week!

Arda Turan finally gets a game and hes out for 6 weeks

La Liga
Barcelona 3 - 0 Vallecano

View attachment 38110

Suarez cant stop scoring this season despite having had an injury hit season last year and being 31 now he just cant stop scoring whilst Rakitic knocks in a brace of penalties

Champions League Groups
Barcelona 4 - 0 Liverpool

View attachment 38109

A very easy win to get back on track after the Mainz result with Suarez netting a brace inside the opening 6 minutes to get us on track before Messi nets a brace himself

La Liga
Real Madrid 4 - 1 Barcelona

View attachment 38108

Well beaten by Real Madrid in a shocking result with new signing Harry Kane netting a brace in a good display showing maybe buying is best

Spanish Cup 4th rnd 1st Leg
Alcoyano 2 - 4 Barcelona

View attachment 38107

We were actually behind twice in this match as we play a complete second string but came back into it late on as we went all out and Abel Ruiz managed to knock in a Hattrick in the end

Suarez out for 5 weeks

View attachment 38106

Luis Suarez has started the new season on fire with 16 goals in just 14 games!

View attachment 38105

Despite Real Madrid beating us they are still only the one point ahead of us having struggled in other fixtures so far this season, Despite At Madrid being top of the table i still dont see them as big league rivals

Espanyol 2 - 4 Barcelona

View attachment 38054

The local derby was a lot closer than it looked in the end! We were up 2-0 they came back to 2-2 after a shocking 3 minutes from my defence before we went all out to get the win and wingers Messi and Dembele both netted again

Champions League Groups
Liverpool 5 - 2 Barcelona

View attachment 38053

We beat them easily at home but this time around nothing went our way. they put 5 past us but it was a closer game than it looked with 2 goals disallowed and us hitting the post 3 times! Sergi Roberto went and got sent off late on just to p me off even more

We still top the group on goal difference for now but its likely Roma will win their game in hand against Mainz setting up a three way 7 point tie with 2 games to go

View attachment 38052

La Liga
Barcelona 1 - 0 Girona

View attachment 38051

Its nice to get back to wining ways and have a clean sheet too after such a poor result in the previous game, it was more of the same with our attackers terrible finishing with 25 shots at their goal resulting in just 1 Luis Suarez goal!

View attachment 38050

La Liga
Villareal 1 - 1 Barcelona

View attachment 38049

Suarez netted in the opening minute before they got one back around half an hour in in a shocker of a match, Suarez went off injured only 13 minutes in but still won the man of the match showing how **** the rest of the match was!

Hes only out for 2 weeks thank god

View attachment 38048

Champions League Groups
Roma 1 - 2 Barcelona

View attachment 38047

Messi is the difference with Coutinho and Alcacer struggling up front, this was a huge performance away from home that secures us a place in the Knockout stages

View attachment 38046

We now need to just beat Mainz to guarantee that top spot in the group and hope to avoid teams like PSG who knocked us out in the first knockout round last year after we finished second in our group

View attachment 38045

Messi's form has picked up this month but its still not Messi numbers 12 goals and 3 assists in 18 matches is poor for him i have never been able to replicate his real life crazy goalscoring performances in FM

View attachment 38044

Up to 4th place but a lot of teams seem to be up their still at this early stage of the season with Sociedad level on points with us and 3 teams still 1 point ahead, it will be nice when we all start playing each other so we can take some points off them!

They couldnt match their hard fought draw from the previous encounter in Germany as we smash 5 goals past them with the likes of Mina and Ruiz even getting some much needed minutes

Dembele nets the only goal of the game as we continue to grind out the results against the lesser teams in the league

La Liga
Barcelona 3 - 0 Espanyol

View attachment 37452

We really put the gloss on in the local derby late on with Suarez netting early on before he grabbed a second and then Munir got a very rare goal to make it 3

With that win we guarantee a top 6 in the league finish

Denis Suarez out for 6 weeks

Imanol Gomez is the biggest prospect from the new youth intake

Suarez cant stop scoring as he gets the only goal of the game just after the break as we go on to secure a 4-0 on aggregate win to make it through to he Quarter Finals

CB Mariano is the other who could one day make the first team squad

View attachment 37446

training facilities to be upgraded hopefully this time it wont be scraped

View attachment 37445

3rd best youth intake prospect is winger Garcia but not sure if he will make it

View attachment 37444

Something in training could well have just changed our season for the worse
Ter Stegen is out for 7 weeks and will miss most of what is left of the season

View attachment 37443

We have to call back young Keeper Fran from his loan spell at Mallorca as backup to Cillessen

View attachment 37442

As you might notice, i have picked up an idea from ILOVELAMP in that i am adding the year they joined through youth intake to their name so i can easily follow their progress, i will only do this to the ones i feel have a chance of making it

We face Current Champions League holders Chelsea in the Quarter Finals

La Liga
Girona 0 - 0 Barcelona

View attachment 37440

A bore draw as we have a shed load of chances but just cant take any of them to say they parked the bus is fully shown in their tactic!

View attachment 37439

Youngster Gomez did make his debut though

View attachment 37438

Just as Alcacer started to find form Ruiz has lost it not having scored for 8 games

View attachment 37437

Luis Suarez has 31 goals in 37 games for us and has simply been the difference so far in what has been a fantastic season to the one last year where we struggled in the Cups

View attachment 37436

After beating Real Madrid in the league we are now 4 points clear at the top of the table with just 8 games to go

Brilliant over £100Million to not spend this Summer

La Liga
Real Sociedad 2 - 4 Barcelona

View attachment 37343

Coutinho netted a minute in and that was that as we stroll to another fine win, we seem to have hit a bit of good goalscoring form at the right time and it allows me to bring the youngsters on in these matches

Iniesta out for 5 weeks

La Liga
Barcelona 1 - 1 Sevilla

View attachment 37341

Suarez nets just after half time and we peppered their goal for the second but it wasnt enough the last 20 minutes you could just tell they were going to score an they did deep into injury time

5 of my Starting 11 are set to miss the first leg of the Champions League against Chelsea

Champions League Quarter Finals 1st Leg
Chelsea 2 - 0 Barcelona

View attachment 37339

Missing some of our key players and it showed as we faded in the second half due to second string players tiring and that overall lack of quality giving us a real struggle to qualify for the Semi Finals now

Suarez and Coutinho netted in a crazy 3 minutes around an hour in before i hauled them off so they couldnt get injured before the Champions League match against Chelsea, 3 of my youth players managed to get game time aswell

Champions League Quarter Finals 2nd leg
Barcelona 3 - 0 Chelsea

View attachment 37273

We come roaring back to win 3-2 on aggregate as Luis Suarez nets a brace to send the tie to extra time, it was then Kante's turn to play the Villain as he gets sent off and gives away a penalty which Messi slots home with just 6 minutes of extra time left

All English and Spanish Semi Finals as Man Utd face Tottenham and we face At Madrid

With that draw we face At Madrid 4 times in our next 5 matches across 3 competitions!

Spanish Cup Final
At Madrid 1 - 2 Barcelona

View attachment 37270

Coutinho nets very early in the match but they soon hit back through Gameiro, it was a pretty even match for the rest of the 90 minutes, it was then up to Andre Gomes to step up off the bench and net the winner in extra time,

Spanish Cup and Super Cup Double

Luis Suarez just cant stop scoring, he seems to be getting better with age with 39 goals in 44 games at the age of 32!

View attachment 37267

8 points clear with 4 games to go, Real Madrid do have a game in hand on us but i feel at least with the league we may be able to rest a couple of players and hope for the best as we go for the Champions League
