The Ultimate Champions League Challenge

Transfers

Not much to report. I was given 35 million but as the Barca starting eleven is packed with talent I decided to pick up a few “backup” players.

Out


Eric Abidal – 5.5 Million

Not a bad price for an aging left back who I felt was not needed

IN

Toby Alderweireld – 8.75 Million

Originally intended as backup he soon became our first choice replacing Puyol in the Team

Di Natale – 10 Million

Another player brought in as a sub but he bagged us a heap of goals through the season

Fernando – 5 Million

Brought him in thinking I would rotate him in midfield however he did not get many starts

Dennis Aogo

Not a household name but put in some very good performances. Started most games due to Alba picking up an injury and impressed.

Tactic

Can’t remember where i got this from but used it with Chelsea and it provided some great results so I thought I would give it a bash with Barca

Pre-season Results

We cruised the first four matches and I took it as a chance to rotate the squad and have a look at how I should play. During the last two matches our entire senior team and a lot of the reserves were away meaning I had to play a lot of players from the u19’s. Still rubbish results though especially The New York game.

Supercup

Barcelona 3 – 1 Real Madrid
Alderweireld - Messi (2)

We fell behind after 4 minutes from a Mesut Ozil strike as we were absolutely battered for the first 20 minutes. I altered the tactics due to this which made a massive difference. Alderweireld equalise just before halftime and Messi added a second half brace to give us the advantage



Supercup second leg

Real Madrid 2 – 0 Barcelona
(3-3 on aggregate – Real win on away goals)

We were very wasteful in a match which we actually dominated, again we conceded early as Khedeira scored within 10 minutes. Coentrao was then sent off as we went on to dominate the match. We took 15 shots but only managed two on target. Real punished us late on when Benzema scored a screamer to secure the cup for real due to away goals.

We are in sensational form in the league and we are currently undefeated after 18 games. A highlight has been our defensive performance as we have conceded only 7 goals. We also beat Real Madrid 5-0 which is sure to make the fans happy.

Happy to progress but disappointed that we came second. I took the chance to rest some of our players but I did not expect Ajax to do so well. We will face PSG in the knockouts.


Copa Del Rey


We are through to the quarter’s where we will face Valencia. We got a scare after losing 2-0 to Mirandes after I rested the team. However we rectified this by beating them 5-0 at home. We manged 31 shots in that match whereas they took 2. We then beat scraped passed Racing after Puyol scored in the 91st
minute to give us a 2-1 aggregate win.

Obviously. Started the first few games slowly and actually struggled to find goals. That soon changed however and he has now netted 23 goals in 23 games. Alderweireld and Villa have been the other stars.
