Have you moved into the Olympic stadium yet? isn't that supposed to be 2016?
Have you moved into the Olympic stadium yet? isn't that supposed to be 2016?


We're moving to Olympic Stadium at the end of the season I'm worried cos we only sold out 5 homes games so far this season

April 2016

We was really poor against West Brom even we picked up 3 points.

We were second best to Valencia even we beat them two goals to one. We went behind on 27th minutes after Reid needless to give away a free kick which Fede Cartabia scoring. Few seconds later, Lukas Podolski level the score, straight from the kick off as Reid booted it down the right hand side which Valencia beat his man to cross the ball into the box and Podolski slammed it home. We got the winning goal on 70th minutes after Podolski was fouled in the box and was awarded the penalty which Noble strike it into bottom corner to give us the win and advance to next round.

We was drawn against CSKA Moscow after they beat AC Milan 5-4 on agg.

We travel to Hull to play our match, it was boring and Hull was really defensive against us, Lukas Podolski got us the winner on 52nd minutes.

Leicester was our visitors at Upton Park, Podolski, put us in front on 23rd minutes, heading in Lozano's inward cross. Podolski won us a penalty on 59th minutes after being brought down. Booted it into top corner to extend our lead. Lozano got our third goal with 5 minutes remaining, with an strike inside the box after pass from Morrison.

We was better side against them in Russia, Jarvis got us the goal we needed to take back home for 2nd leg.

We was really poor against Swansea and deserved to get beaten.

I was hoping to get Romero back for our match against CSKA but got the news he got injured in training a day before the match with twisted knee and out for 2-3 weeks

Crazy game against CSKA. They were better than us. Ibrahima Baldé got them in front on 14th minutes with close range finish. Ravel Morrison got us back on level term with a strike outside the box into top corner. At half time I decided to switch to 4-1-2-2-1 formation which made us stable in second half. Took off Ravel Morrison and brought on Blair Turgott. Podolski has his goal chalked off on 50th minutes which should have stood. Huge mistake by Horn and Kana-Biyik. Some reason Horn decided to pass it to him and all of sudden KB decided to pass it back which N'Doye took advantage of to score. Blair Turgott got his first goal for the club with a curling strike into left top corner to level the score. Jarvis put us in the driving seat after putting us 3-1 up after scoring from Podolski's parried shot. Winston Reid gave away a penalty in injury time which Dzagoev put the ball into the net to level the game.

I agree I'm surprised we got to EL final. even I thought we'd struggle in Europa League.

Thanks Jamie
I told you that a top half finish was well within your reach this year, great stuff. The Europa League final though, now thats an achievement. Brilliant Johno!

Yes you did But I'd be happy to finish 8th/9th. But few games where have cost us when we could have been 6th-7th.

We did have some luck on the way tho Would be amazing if we could win Europa League.

Some reason we're losing money at the club When chairman first took over, we has 42M in the bank and now suddenly down to 12M

Mixed feelings for our results in the league but Europa League \o/ \o/ \o/

We went behind after poor marking from the defence to let Origi head in Johnson's cross. An own goal from Muniesa got us on leveling term after diverting Jarvis's cross into his own net. Another own goal from Stoke City, this time it's Shawcross diverting Valencia's cross to give us the lead.

We should have been out of sight but we never took our chance which Stoke's N'Zonzi took his on 86th minutes with close range finish to deny us 3 points which would have made huge difference to the league standing

Our last game at Upton Park before moving to new stadium.I decided to make few changes to rest the players for Europa League Final, left our Valencia, Walker and Podolski, Lozano and played Marlow in midfielder, Leo Chambers at RB and Bywater at MR. Sergio Augero was the massive difference. We went behind on 21st minutes after stupid mistake by Kana-Biyik to let him score. Augero got his second goal 47th minutes with a strike from outside the box which hit the crossbar and went in.

WOW just wow Roma was heavily favorite to beat us win Europa League. First XI: Horn, Walker, Reid, Tomkins, O'Brien; Lozano, Poyet, Downing, Podolski; Morrison, Valencia.

Roma started well against us and kept attacking at us and defence was superb against them. The game turned it on it head on 4th minutes after Downing chipped it toward the goal which Roma's Jeison Murillo mistimed his header and missed the ball which Valencia ran onto to put us ahead in the final. We has chances when it was 3 v 3 but Valencia booted it at the keeper unfortunately. Roma continues to attack for the goal and our defence was superb and Roma was caught offside alot as I ticked play offside. I was gobsmacked when we won it. Kevin Srtootman was named man of the match, which he was great against us.

Totti (currently 39) is also playing his last season with Roma before retiring, I have signed him up few months ago to be U's18 assistant manager at the end of the season. I have also brought in David Beckham as U's18 coach.

You can see we're short in midfielders We have missed Romero a lot but Poyet and Ademi have done well.

In talks with Jussi with being our U's18 GK coach.

Hopefully we will be building up our finances after 2 big loans will be cleared.

Current balance

Hopefully we can get much better deal/money from sponsorship

Pretty happy with that. Will be looking at GK for back up, couple midfielders, AMC and ST. Will be looking to trim the wages as well.
Wow superb Johno, Europa League chat p ions despite mid table in the league! That's something' a good budget to work with too
well don with the Europa league

Cheers Dan Yeah, I was expecting us to get stuffed as Roma got cracking players. I'm currently looking at decent midfielders around Europe.

well don with the Europa league


Thanks Ipswich Knights
Well done mate, great achievement. Interested to see how your squad will cope with the Champions League given that they were only 9th last year! I'm sure you'll have them ready to challenge

Cheers KEZ I hope we can cope with amount of games next season, I will be looking to rotate few players with youngsters to keep them fresh if needed to. Looking at a lot of players to improve the teams at the moment.
Congrats on winning the Europa League, it's always nice winning it with an underdog.

Transfers budget


http://i.imgur.com/Vbk1ZHS.png

We have been given 45M and the board expecting us to finish 8th, I think we can finish few places higher.

I have push most of it toward the wages budget so now we got just under 20M.

Transfers news


We have made alot of signings so far and we're yet to start our pre season So I thought post up transfers to get it out of the way.

http://i.imgur.com/vR1eiz3.png

Pre signed him last season, so he arrived in the summer, will be spending in U's21 this season to gain experience.

http://i.imgur.com/Naov9MG.png

Also pre signed him last season, will also be in U's21 this season.

http://i.imgur.com/qeJp2ar.png

I'm going to train him as ML/AML, and hopefully be Argentine's Bale I was inspired by Cleon's thread on SI (which he converted a LB to ST)

http://i.imgur.com/dRhGlaG.png

I like the look of this guy, looking forward to his and Romero's partnership in MC this season.

http://i.imgur.com/TVqSqFp.png

Found him when I was looking at my scout report, highly rated by the scouts. He was already playing few games for the first team. Will be playing for U's21 this season.

http://i.imgur.com/FthnukF.png

Brought him in for back up as James Collins retired.

http://i.imgur.com/dvD4OYI.png

Back up to our defence.

http://i.imgur.com/O5j4RXU.png

HONDAAA \o/ I decided to bring him in to boost our attacking options, we also has news saying he will boost our revenues from Japan Such a shame we don't have a Japanese feeder club

http://i.imgur.com/KrnfMfU.png

Scout found him while scouting in Scandinavian. Rated him highly so I decided to bring him in for back up and hopefully sell him for big profit in the future.

http://i.imgur.com/muNqEpG.png

Another Danish youngsters Brought him in to cover depth in midfielders.

http://i.imgur.com/AS7bBXF.png

Pre signing this guy for next season, (Yes I know not another Danish )

OUT


Hamdallah - I lost my patience with him and definitely my worst signing I have made. Stoke snapped him up around February.

Downing - I decided to cash him in as he's now 32, and a year left on his contract.

Valencia - I'm gutted to sold him but 40M for him was too good to turn down. His agent played massive part in this, trying to get us to give him a new contract when he got 3 years left I said to Valencia, you won't get new one til end of the season and came back saying I can't wait that long. Which left me no option but to sell. Offered him out for 40M and surprisingly Monaco came up with 4M up front and 36M in 24 months installments, which I accepted. Now earning 98K p/w in France.

Morrison - Decided to sell him as he was playing poor last few months and now we got Honda. We also got 50% next transfer clause in which is better for us. But Man Utd bloody got 30% out of 5.25M

Staff changes

Added new staff to our backroom.

http://i.imgur.com/aa9kKYh.png

New U's21 manager.

http://i.imgur.com/UPcef6s.png

Hopefully he can pick up few regens from Mexico/North America regions.

http://i.imgur.com/J7UP7U5.png

Will be scouting Italy's19 leagues.

http://i.imgur.com/cYA6JUY.png

Have to give credit to him for finding us players from Denmark above He's currently scouting Scandinavian region.
http://i.imgur.com/j4AMt12.png

Not bad

http://i.imgur.com/SfhVy9E.png

Pre signed him in January. Quite decent player and will rotate with Walker. BUT Walker is in talks with Liverpool, after I accepted 14M for him.

Have sold Diego Poyet to Real Sociedad for 15.25M. Felt it was time to sell him.
http://i.imgur.com/QUimBHo.png

Completed our move to Olympic stadium. But not happy with us paying 2M ffs
£2m for the stadium will feel like nothing now that you're debt free. Good bit of business in selling Valencia too, I know you didn't want to lose him but if you're going to you may as well make the big bucks!!

Also, Jan Schmidt has good hair
Jan Schmidt could be a big player in the future thats for sure. Good to see you debt free too.

I'm assuming that this is because you also like his hair?
