The goodbye to Arsène Wenger and the reborn of Arsenal !



As one of the most successful and beloved clubs in England, Arsenal Football Club was always a magnet for the public. Tradition-wise, their results speak for themselves; in addition to winning 27 major domestic trophies, Arsenal hold the records for longest unbeaten streak and longest run in top flight of English football.

Emirates Stadium


As one of the top clubs in England the capacity of 38,419 at Highbury was not enough. Arsenal wanted to expand the stadium, but was not given permission. Therefore, they had to build a new stadium and in 2006 Emirates Stadium was ready for first kick-off with potentially over 60,000 in the crowd.
The New Era of Arsenal


Young Portuguese coach is hired to win the long awaited English league title. To be more precise, it was in the 2003/2004 season that he had achieved this achievement for the last time. Can he do such a thing? Can he get back to the old days of the gunners he dominated across Europe?

The fans expect a lot from him. It will not be easy but he knows it.
Good luck fella!
Football Manager 2018 - From A Failed Footballer To A Traveling Manager - Story coming soon...
@Dan Thank You Mate

First day and starting soon with the expectations for the season.


Starting with the Europa League, the expectation is to win. I know it will not be easy but a team like Arsenal have to have great ambitions and winning the league europa will be excellent for the beginning. So I hope will be done.
The English league, I opted for the qualification for the champions but believing that I am able to fight for the first place.
And about the Emirates FA Cup, I also opted for his victory.
As for the other two cups, if possible, is to win too.

In my opinion, only with the course of the games will I get the idea of how my team will be prepared for all competitions. We will go from game to game and so I believe we will win great things.


About the pre-season


This is will be the pre-season. Some good games to make magic in the field

I will return to the McDonalds FA Community Shield game, with its result and also news about the pre-season.



*Note: If you notice, the calendar print has been changed (other teams) because I had a problem with the save. For you to know.
About Pre Season





About brahimi contraction, we need a left forwad that would make the difference, that would make imbalances and then with my knowledge in the portuguese market decides to go get the Yacine Brahimi.
I was even interceded in Inter player Ivan Peresic but his value was too high for a player who is already 29 years old.
There was also interest in Player Bernd Leno, keeper of Leverkusen but decides to make that choice in the January market. Until then, Petr Cech and David Ospina will have the opportunity to change my mind.



On Welbeck's departure there is not much to say. A better player has arrived and he decides to bet on Brahimi who was hired, and on the two talented youngsters Iwobi and Reiss Nelson. Welbeck's proposal was also very good and gave a return on the purchase of brahimi.
Deyan Iliev was in the sub 23 team but had no talent for being on the team and decides to sell as well.


First Team Number's:


Passing to the pre-season games:


Pre-Season Games


As you can see the celtic game is missing because they canceled because they have a game nearby and so I changed that game through the game with zurich.
As for the 3 new games that were made with teams from Hong Kong felt that I needed to practice more to my tactics and decided to do some games in the time of internship.

Balance Sheet: It was a positive move, where I got my tactics in practice and where I saw the team playing football. He started conceding a few goals but we still had a record of 30 goals scored and 4 conceded. It is true that many of those goals were with weak teams but I believe that my team will be able to make a good season starting with the conquest of McDonalds FA Community Shield.

Until the next update and that is with the victory of the cup.

Note: I'm sorry I'm not in this update already the cup game but I've been going very busy.

And the winners of McDonalds FA Community Shield are:

Arsenal 2 Chelsea 1




We started to lose 0-1 at half-time but with some changes the team returned to the second half and recovered this disadvantage beating Chelsea 2-1.
Goals scored by: Alexandre Lacazette (pen 51) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (79).


After all this party and joy it is time to think about the next game that starts the Premier League. Let's get on the right foot and make an excellent Premier league with the Europa League and the domestic cups too.

Let's go Gunners!!
Europa League draw


Easy Group?


There was also the draw of the EFL Cup

Before the January Update

I know that I had already posted the summary of the transfers but andes of his closing we still made a very important contraction. First for being using a tactics of 3 centers and another for being a great player.
There was also an exit but by loan, nothing much just to gain pace.





With all this, this is my squad:


Next update will be January 1, 2018.
January 1, 2018

Starting with the championship.
It has been very positive, much more than I expected and very surprising.
But it's still January, there is a lot to be done and by the end of the championship there are many points to be won, but we are on the right way.

Premier League



As you can see, it has been quite positive. With only 1 loss and 3 draws so far.



Not forget to mention also an excellent moment for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who already takes 27 goals in the league with 38 goals in all competitions.



Carabao Cup (EFL Cup)



3 games, 3 victories, to mention that we managed to eliminate the big club as the Spurs of the cup and we are in the semi final of the cup where we got the Man City. It will not be easy because it will be a great football game, against Man city.

The clubs that are in the cup are:


FA Cup


We have not played any games for this cup but we have already been drawn the club that we will face.


Europa League

It was a good draw for us with accessible teams one managed to get 3 victories and 3 draws in 6 games and thus we obtain the 1 place of the group.


Draw of First Knockout Round

With this we passed the next phase where we got lucky again and we got Celtic.



Tactical systems used:

I am using a 4-2-3-1 and also a 5-2-1-2 that are giving me very good results as you can see.




General Opinion

Everything has been going well in all competitions and I hope it continues. The team is playing good football, to enjoy the good moment of some players.
But now until the end it will be difficult. There will be many competitions in a short time and there will be many tired legs. Hopefully we can control this and bring the cups to the Emirates Stadium.

I believe, lets go GUNNERS!

After the deadline day these were the transfers made by Arsenal.


From Leicester City, Harry Maguire - £30M


From Sampdoria, Lucas Torreira - £22,5M


From Fuham, Ryan Sessegnon - £20M (I loaned him to Watford because I'm with Sead Kolasinac and Monreal for the left wing. I buy him because he could go to another club and then it would be a bigger sum and also for monreal (maybe be) the last time of his in Emirates Stadium.)



Mohamed Elneny for Liverpool - £25M

Santi Cazorla for Villarreal - £3,6M

Matt Macey for Middlesbrough - Loan

Konstantinos Mavropanos for Hamburger SV - Loan

Ainsley Maitland-Niles for Leicester - Loan

Ryan Sessegnon for Watford (Like i say Before) - Loan

For the rest of the season this will be the squad:


January month was not only transfers, it was many games month and all of them difficult.

But my team does not stop me from surprising and I sincerely start to be astonished how things are going well..


4 games for the Premier League and all of them difficult, first a victory against chelsea, second, victory at home to liverpool by a surprising 4 goals (they are in 2 place in the league), third a very difficult game out with burnely where we managed to score a goal in the final moments and fourth game at home with Man Utd where we managed to win by only one goal (do not forget to mention that in the first round the only defeat was with them out 3-0).

We also had the 3rd round and 4th round of the FA Cup where we won Leicester and again chelsea in a crazy game.

Already in the EFL Cup we won Man City 2-0 in the total of two leg's and we are so in the final where we will face AFC Bournemouth who eliminated Wolves.


I can not be more happy with the performance of my team because it has been brilliant in all competitions so far, I hope to continue and reach mainly the desired title of national champion.
