After I decided to quit my HJK's Road To Glory story (I couldn't find myself into this save anymore) I had problems getting into any save. But I am enjoying this one. Lets see:


Diego Simeone resigns,newcomer takes his place

View attachment 374781

Every newspaper in Madrid have come up with this breaking news:
Diego Simeone got fired after he had a disagreement with
Atl.Madrid's director Enrique Cerezo.

Quickly after that,a new manager took his place in order to satisfy angry Atl.Madrid fans. Inexperienced Montenegrin manager Milan Resetar was under big pressure when Board announced that he will be Simeone's inheritor.

As I am using LFC Marshall's latest update Villa is there alongside Leo and Demichelis.


High expectations from him,he should be a goalscoring machine,but we will see. And,in my opinion the bargain of this transfer window so far.

Brazilian left back should be our main strength in defence,but also very useful in attacking phase.


Spanish central midfielder is one of my favourite players and I hope he will be as good as I think.




That's it for introduction guys,couple of incoming transfers and pre season friendlies in next update. Thanks for following! :D

Good luck, you have helped me make up my mind not to do a story on Atletico as i was pondering it but there is no need for two out there. Hope it goes well!

July 2012
New players arrived at Vicente Calderon
Training camp in Portugal

So,when I look at my squad,the wingers are very bad(both),so my main transfer targets are wingers themselves.



Brilliant English young right and left midfielder(exactly what I need). 16 millions is maybe too much but I wont regret for this.


My new left midfielder,arrived from West Brom for 11 millions. He was very good in my last save so I decided to purchase him.



Young Nigerian winger,my backup player,will be very useful. 1,5 million is a decent price.


Great youth prospect,arrived from Rapid Wien. 16 year old central defender,he wont play this season but I have him in my plans later. 500k is bargain for a 4 star potential player.


4 players for this transfer window is good enough,I sold Arda Turan for 19 millions to Man City because I dont play with an attacking midfielder. Raul Garcia went to Dortmund for 8,5 millions.

First friendly match we have played in Portugal,against FC Porto.


FC Porto - Atletico Madrid 0:4
Adrian 2x , Miranda , Leo
​I hope we will play at the same level in more important matches.

There is the final squad for this season(at least until the January)

View attachment 375073

We have played three more friendly matches in Portugal against top teams.


Benfica - Ateltico Madrid 0:4
Costa , Hassan , Leo , Oliver
Another very good performance against very strong Benifca side.



Sporting (POR) - Ateltico Madrid 2:2
Villa , Rodriguez
Decent match we didnt win although we had a lead both time but failed to keep it.



Vit.Guimaraes - Atetico Madrid 3:1
Costa

My played were really tired for this game,so reserve team played this and they were really bad.

First match in LIGA BBVA we will play against Osasuna away from home,tough match that could be but I hope for a victory there.



LIGA BBVA
Osasuna - Atletico Madrid 0:1
Chamberlain
It definitely wasnt easy but we got the victory we wanted. Chamberlain played great on his debut scoring great scorcher from the distance.

League started very well,now we have two matches against Barca in Supercopa Final.



Supercopa Final Leg 1
Ateltico Madrid - Barcelona 1:2
Brunt
Things looked very good after my new left midfielder scored a great goal from a free kick in 3rd minute but Barca than scored twice in second half. Actually they had 3 shots in the whole game and scored 2. Very frustrating but that's football.



LIGA BBVA
Atletico Madrid - Malaga 1:1
Costa
We had a chance to win this game but poor finishng costs us 2 points.



Supercopa Final Leg 2
Barcelona - Ateltico Madrid 4:0

Expected this.


Champions League group stage draw:
View attachment 375075
So,Ajax,Porto and Celtic,I think it is a great draw and we have a chance to qualifyi maybe even from the first place. We will see.

Good start in Champions League
Heavy defeat from Spanish giant


LIGA BBVA
Sevilla - Atletico Madrid 0:2
Costa , Adrian
Very good and important victory against strong Sevilla side,and so far Costa seems to be my best striker.



LIGA BBVA
Getafe - Atletico Madrid 1:4
Brunt , Demichelis , Chamberlain , Adrian
My both wingers are playing great so far and they were the best in this game.



UEFA Champions League
Ajax - Atletico Madrid 2:4
Suarez , Adrian 2x , Hassan
Very important first game in group stage and we did a very good jobe. Adrian started scoring and I am very satisfied with the way he played.



LIGA BBVA
Atletico Madrid - Granada 1:1
Costa
Definitely wanted a victory here but we got at least that one point with Costa's fine executed finish.

Last game in this month was against Barcelona,which I expected to be a close game where we could maybe snap a narrow win but a totally another thing happened.


LIGA BBVA
Atletico Madrid - Barcelona 0:6
As i said,they absolutely destroyed us. We were totally outcalssed by Barcelona and they deserved to score even more goals.
