GC52 - Match Reports/Discussion

Re: GC52 - Match Reports/Discussion

St. Mirren sit in 2nd on goal difference in the Scottish League thanks to an undefeated run of 8-3-0 since winning the Scottish Shield over Rangers on penalties.

Manager James Wright recently told reporters: "I'm ecstatic about our current run of form. Since the win in the Shield the boys have been playing with their hearts on their sleeves. They deserve every piece of credit being given them in the papers lately."

No one would have predicted at the beginning of the season that this St. Mirren side would sit even on points with 2 games left in the league, but thanks to some good work in the transfer market and the loan signings of Pereira Rafael Carioca and Mounir El Hamdaoui they have found themselves in the fight for a place in the Champions League next season.

There seems to be a new rivalry being formed in Scotland between St. Mirren and Rangers.

The first meeting in the league saw Rangers take down St. Mirren 1-0 in a hard fought victory at home. The next meeting was in the Scottish Cup Quarterfinal and again, Rangers won 1-0.

After that though, the tables turned and when Rangers visited St. Mirren Park they were defeated 2-0. A few weeks later saw St. Mirren and Rangers face off in the Scottish Shield Final and after drawing 1-1 in regular time, St. Mirren won on penalties.

When next they faced off St. Mirren visited Ibrox and took home a vital point with a 1-1 draw.

Now, sitting in 2nd only on goal difference, St. Mirren will be hosting Rangers on the final day of the season in what could be the title decider.

When questioned, manager James Wright said: "We've first got to concentrate on overcoming Aberdeen in the 2nd to last game. Anything but a win there probably puts us out of title contention as Rangers goal differential is 10 greater than ours. We really need to find a short term loan signing as El Hamdaoui is now injured until the season ends. We'll be looking desperately for a good striker on loan to finish out the season."

(BADLY need a striker on loan, or a quality Right Back)

Bosnia set for tough World Cup debut

Bosnia and Herzegovina have been draw together with Germany, Morocco and Sweden in Group E of the World Cup in Italy. This will be Bosnia's first appearance in a World Cup finals, and the nation's fans are confident of qualifying for the next round. Heres what coach James Burro whad to say:

"It was inevitable that we would get a big name in our group, and Germany is one of the biggest of big names. But as regards the rest of the group, i am actually quite pleased of the outcome. Sweden's only dangerman is Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and they lost to Mali in the Qualifiers, so I am confident of beating them, and Morocco, they will be a pushover.

World Cup Latest

Group E

Bosnia and Herzegovina made their World Cup debut with a win after beating Morrocco 3-1. Hrgovic, Dzeko and Bajramovic scored for B&H, with Abdessadski scoring for the Morrocans. That put the Bosnians 2nd in the group, with Germany top. The two sides met in the second match of Group E, with the Germans triumphing 5-2 over B&H. A first-half hat-trick from Miroslav Klose, and further goals from Frings and Gomez sealed the win, despite Dzeko and Salihamidzic providiong hope for the debutants. However, Dzeko was stretchered off later on and may not play a part in the crucial game agains Sweden. Bosnia need a draw or a win to progress, a loss will put them out. If Morrocco defeat Germany by two goals and Bosnia draw 0-0, the Bosnians are out.

Inter Milan fought back from 3-0 down last night to claim a draw against their arch rivals AC Milan at the San Siro. Milan looked comfortable at half time with the score at 2-0, but Inter's determination saw them snatch a point in the dying minutes of the game. The draw sees Inter go up to third place, just three points behind Genoa in 2nd, though Juventus are streets ahead of the rest in first. AC Milan stay in 9th place and will be hoping to push for European qualification with just eight games to go.

It was the red side of Milan that made the better start to the game, and the first chance they created resulted in a goal. Clarence Seedorf expertly volleyed past Coupet and put AC Milan in the lead after just three minutes. Milan continued to press and Kuyt, Berbatov, Demichelis and Flamini all had good chances to extend the lead. Inter were clearly struggling to match their rivals' start and defensively were all over the place. After 38 minutes, Santi Cazorla ran from deep and unleashed a powerful effort which flew past Coupet and into Inter's net. Amauri had a chance to pull one back just before the break but he failed to convert, meaning the two teams went into half time with the score Inter 0-2 AC.

A similar story to the first half, AC Milan created the first opportunity and converted it. A corner was cleared to the unmarked Dirk Kuyt on the edge of the area who hit it on the bounce into the roof of the net. Chaos erupted in the San Siro as opposing fans collided in the South Stand. Inter finally started showing some resolution and they got their reward in the 67th minute. Englishman Steven Gerrard's deflected effort wrong-footed Buffon and trickled into the far corner. This wasn't the first time that Gerrard sparked a comeback against a Milan team winning by three goals to nil. Robinho and Dellas both had chances but placed wide of the mark, before Lucho Gonzalez was put through one on one and made no mistake, slotting past the Italian Buffon. With only 5 minutes left, the loyal Inter fans who stayed in the ground were growing more and more hopeful that a result was not beyond them. On 87 minutes, Cristian Chivu's long ball was dealt with horribly by the AC Milan defence, and Amauri took full advantage of the schoolboy antics. The Brazilian powered into the area and blasted past the keeper to equalise for Inter, a goal that re-ignited crowd problems but more importantly re-ignited Inter's hopes of a second place finish. Neither team were able to grab a winner in the final 3 minutes, leaving the derby at a stalemate, 3 goals apiece.

Inter Milan Guarantee Runners Up Place In Serie A

With one game remaining in the Serie A calendar, Inter Milan travelled to Bologna last night looking for the three points that would ensure 2nd place. Inter were in good form and had won six in a row, and that form wasn't about to change. They raced into a 3-0 lead at half time before adding four more in the second period. Bologna's consolation came late on, and their defeat last night means they can still be relegated on the final day. Inter will face first place Juventus on the final day, and 'The Old Lady' lead Nerazzurri by 14 points in the league table. Although the game isn't too important in terms of this season, Inter's manager Harvey says that it will be a good indication for next season.

There was just one change from the Inter side that beat Cagliari on Wednesday night. Christian Chivu was back from suspension and replaced Nelson Rivas at the heart of the defence. Despite the big score line, it was in fact Bologna who made the better start to the game. Eidur Gudjohnsen saw his delicate lob go just over the bar in the first minute of the game. Bologna had more possession but were set back after 9 minutes. Just one minute after Steven Gerrard's effort was cleared off the line, Robinho opened the deadlock with a long range curling effort that Cristian Lucchetti could only stand and admire. Just two minutes later it was Robinho again who doubled Inter's lead. His first was curled beautifully into the top corner, this time the Brazilian opted for power, drilling home a right footed effort into the back of the net. The Brazilian could have had a hat trick inside 20 minutes, but he somehow managed to miss the target from six yards out. It was Fernando Torres who got the third for the travelling side, when he met Lucho Gonzalez's cross with a powerful header. The sides went into the break with the away side in full control, and the home side knowing they'd need something special if they were to get back into this contest.

It didn't take long for Bologna's fading hopes to be completely dashed. Lucho Gonzalez, who set up Torres for the third, wanted to get in on the act himself. Gonzalez cut inside from the right and unleashed a stunning left footed effort that was past the keeper in the blink of an eye. Steven Gerrard grabbed his ninth of the season in the 65th minute, when he got on the end of former Liverpool team mate Xabi Alonso's through ball, and the Englishman doesn't miss those chances. Carvalha Amauri's run and strike ensured Inter's sixth of the night, before the returning Cristian Chivu rounded the keeper and tapped into an empty goal to get the seventh. There was some consolation for the home team when Franco Brienza's long range effort flew into the top corner, but it was too little too late and Inter's astonishing display had earned them a 2nd place finish in the league this season.

In his post match interview, Harvey was pleased with his side's performance. "We played really well today, it's just a shame we couldn't do it all season. We definitely have the quality to win this league, but that bad run in late May/early June basically put us out of it. In that respect, we've done well to fight back and claim 2nd. Without meaning to blame injuries, we have had some key players missing for large periods of this year. We've only just got Stevie G and Fernando Torres back, Senna has been out for a long time as has Marcelo. Full credit to Juventus though, they've steamrolled it this year, but we'll be back next year."

intermilan.pngrensing.jpg

Inter Milan have finally been able to bring in a new goalkeeper to the club - German keeper Michael Rensing. Harvey had been looking to find a new No.1 for a long time and was glad to bring Rensing in from Bayern Munich. Harvey paid £2M for Rensing, plus 35 year old keeper Gregory Coupet and Lucio Fernandao. Inter have arrived in Turin tonight for the final game of the season at Juventus, having already guaranteed 2nd place. Juventus were crowned champions a few weeks ago but Harvey told the media that Inter were still taking this game seriously. "Despite it's insignificance to this season, it will be a good indicator for next year where we hope to be stronger contenders for the title."

Inter Milan - End of Season Awards

Defender of the Year - Christian Chivu

Cristian+Chivu+inter.jpg

The Romanian centre half has been a key figure for Inter Milan this season. He's only missed one game all season long, and in those 37 games played he notched 2 goals and 6 assists. Chivu was used as part of a back four at the start of the season, and adapted well to playing as part of a back three towards the end.

Midfielder of the Year - Marcos Senna

marcos-senna.jpg

The defensive midfielder was made captain of the side when Harvey became manager and the Spanish international didn't let him down. Senna scored 7 goals in his 26 appearances, as well as setting up three. His average performance rating was 7.31 and his partnership with Xabi Alonso as holding midfielders will be crucial to Inter's chances next season.

Striker of the Year - Amauri

amauri.jpg

Despite his world class strike partner, Fernando Torres, it has been Amauri that has outshone his team mate this season. Torres, who struggled in his first season in Italy, managed eight goals in his 25 appearances compared to Amauri's 13 in the same number of games. His form has cemented his place in the starting XI, though speculation is that Amauri and Torres may be used together next year on a more regular basis.

Fans Player of the Year - Robinho

robinho_e.jpg

The Brazilian winger made a huge contribution to Inter's season this year, with 12 goals and 10 assists. He was their second highest goalscorer and was used down the left wing, the right wing and through the middle. Wherever he played he didn't disappoint.

Team of the Season

INTER MILAN UPDATE

After watching Juventus dominate Serie A last season, Inter Milan have looked hungrier than ever at the start of this campaign. Inter were second to Juve by a massive 14 points last season, which manager Harvey put down to incosistency and "inability to beat the smaller teams". Inter have had a really quiet pre-season in terms have transfers and have only brought one player in, in the shape of Dutch youngster Rick Van Wolfswinkel for £4.3M. Harvey said he found it difficult to trade with other managers but states that he is more than happy with his squad, and insists that if his star men can steer clear of injury then he can see a productive season for Nerazzurri. Here's a round up of Inter's games so far:

Inter Milan 2-1 Juventus (Charity Shield Final)

Last year's top 2 met again at the start of the season for the charity shield. The game was seen by many as psychological ahead of the new season, though both managers decided to field weakened teams. Killian Overmeire put Inter ahead after just 3 minutes with a stunning curling effort which Alex Manninger could do nothing about. Their lead only lasted for eight minutes however, as Vincenzo Iaquinta met Stanislav Sestak's cross and headed past Michael Rensing in Inter's goal. Inter were seeing more of the ball and creating more chances but couldn't seem to get ahead. That was until, on 57 minutes, Sulley Ali Muntari found Victor Obinna in space, the Nigerian forward turned sharply before unleashing a stunning right footed shot that outshone Overmeire's opener. Nerazzurri held on for the win and picked up their first piece of silverware under their manager.

Roma 1-3 Inter Milan (League Fixture 1)

Inter were given a really difficult fixture to kick off their season, away at Roma. The home side were made slight favourites purely based on their home advantage, but it was always going to be a cagey affair. Inter began the game very brightly and took the lead inside two minutes. Paolo de Ceglie crossed from the left, and Robinho raced in from the right to head past Alexander Doni. Roma were shaken by Inter's quick start and they fell further behind after 15 minutes. Xabi Alonso put Steven Gerrard through on goal and the former Liverpool captain rifled his shot off the inside of the post and in. Inter's new 3-5-2 formation looked to be working a treat, but Roma weren't giving up yet. With half an hour played, they pulled one back through Raffaele Palladino. The Italian forward was afforded too much space and he finished like a striker at the top of his game. Both teams then went all out for another goal but were seemingly unable to do so. The game's talking point came early in the second half when Roma's Samuel Etoo's strike was thought to have crossed the line. Inter's keeper Michael Rensing was adamant that he had got to the ball before it went over and replays showed that he was correct. Fernando Torres was the man who got the final goal of the game with a tap-in from a yard out, and that's how it finished, Roma 1-3 Inter.

Inter Milan 2-1 Real Madrid (SMFA Champions Cup Group D Game 1)

Just when they thought it couldn't get any harder, Inter hosted Real Madrid in their third game of the season to kick off Group D. Again, both managers played weakened teams but the Madrid side could still boast names such as Cannavaro, Gago, Ribery, Klose and Bojan. The first half seemed to fly by and neither team were able to stamp their authority on it. The best chance fell to Paolo de Ceglie but his 25 yard effort smashed the bar. It was indeed the second half where the tie came to life. First, Selim Teber nudged Inter ahead with a brilliant solo effort - the German was putting his claim forward for first team football. 4 minutes later and Inter were two goals to the good, this time through Victor Obinna. Spanish giants Real Madrid did pull one goal back thanks to an emphatic header from Ruben de la Red but Inter held on and thoroughly deserved their win.

Inter Milan 2-0 Chievo (League Fixture 2)

After beating Juventus, Roma and Real Madrid, you could forgive Inter's fans for thinking that Chievo would be a walk in the park. How wrong they were. Chievo began the game brightly and should have taken the lead through Michele Marcolini, but he fired over from close range. That miss seemed to wake Inter up and they took the lead on 12 minutes. Last year's top scorer Amauri got the goal when his effort hit the inside of the post before crossing the line. On 43 minutes, controversy broke out when Fernando Torres was given a red card. The Spaniard was already on a yellow card and when he went down easily in the area, the referee had no choice but to send him off. Inter struggled with ten men and had keeper Michael Rensing to thank for keeping Chievo out. On 89 minutes Inter got a second when they caught Chievo on the counter attack. Alonso struck from distance and the wicked deflection caught Stefano Sorrentino out. A 2-0 win but not as comfortable as the scoreline suggests.

Inter Lift Scudetto

2504779541_57ccdfcece.jpg?v=0

Inter Milan lifted the Serie A title last night after a gruelling 38-game season came to an end. Inter, last years runners up, defeated a second string Lazio team 5-1 last night to ensure the league title came to the San Siro. Amauri, Robinho, Senna and Fernando Torres (2) grabbed the goals. Inter end the season with a goals tally of 126, averaging 3.3 goals a game. Here are the end of season awards.

Defender of the Year

20.jpg

Cristian Chivu was Inter's rock in defence, sitting out only 3 league games all season. As well as helping his side to the second best defensive record in the division, Chivu demonstrated his skills going forward, notching two goals and nine assists to his name.

Midfielder of the Year

XabiAlonsoReuters-cov.jpg

Xabi Alonso was one of only two men to play every single game of the season (along with Maicon). Alonso averaged a rating of 8.0 in his 38 games, and although he was asked to be more defensive, the Spaniard still managed 13 goals and 11 assists, and was named man of the match four times. Harvey has strongly denied claims that he will leave the club in pre-season.

Forward of the Year

n55953667778_5017.jpg

Fernando Torres finished the season as Serie A's top goalscorer and player of the season award. The former Liverpool & Atletico Madrid ace scored a staggering 33 goals in 34 appearances, also laying off 27 assists for his team mates. He averaged a goal every 1.03 games and has been made unavailable by his manager.

Team of the Season

Re: GC52 - Match Reports/Discussion

Despite a defeat at Burnley, Southampton (already the Div 2 Champions) did me a huge favour & beat 3rd placed Portsmouth, which ensured that my team Mansfield Town have clinched automatic promotion to Div 1.

Which means that tonight I've achieved my goal in guiding Mansfield Town from Div 5 to Div 1:).

It's taken 5 seasons (a defeat in the div 3 play-offs halting our progress along the way) & some careful balancing of the books (hopefully the stadium capacity will get extended again for next season in the top flight), taking a punt on some unknown players who proved to be great risers (Dossevi & Pizzi in particular), making the loan signings count, especially this season when i waited until the last couple of weeks to bring loanees in, a tactic which worked very well with Kleber (on loan from Real Madrid) scoring the goals which saw us win the crucial game against Portsmouth & put us 4 points clear of them with 3 games to go.

The next challenge will be to try & keep the Stags in the top flight next season!

Re: GC52 - Match Reports/Discussion

5 Months on from my last post the season has finished tonight & I can happily report I kept Mansfield up.

In fact we did way better then just staying up, we finished in 6th place with only the top 2 having lost fewer games, & currently on a run of 15 Div 1 games unbeaten.

The main reason for our success has been our superb away form, with 13 wins, including victories at Spurs, Arsenal (who we did the double over), Man Utd, & our biggest win of the season a 7-0 thrashing of Forest.

The stadium expansion helped keep the finances from going into the red & the £5m prize money will be spent wisely. I'm hoping the fact that we've finished so high in the table & will be playing in an SMFA competition next season will mean that the board decide to increase the capacity again!.

Next season the priority will be the same as this to avoid relegation. I don't think we'll manage a 6th place finish again, but a top half finish would be great.

Re: GC52 - Match Reports/Discussion

Well another 5 months pass & another season finishes in GC52.

I can happily report that once again Mansfield have exceeded expectations & easily avoided the drop. After a rotten run of form in the league of 9 games without a win, we picked up a last day victory at West Ham which saw us finish in 7th place & ensure that we'd see SMFA Shield action at Field Mill again next season.

Before the wretched run in the league we'd been on course for a 4th or 5th placed finish, to be fair the fallout in the league had a lot to do with our progress in the SMFA Shield as I had to send out the reserves in the league on a fair few occassions.

In the SMFA Shield I'm proud to say we managed to reach the final, which we lost unfortunately (1-0) against a strong Sevilla side - but it was a pleasing run & the clubs finances have never been healthier.

If anyone who happens to read this is interested my full strength Mansfield team have an average rating of 86 & no players rated over 87.

Re: GC52 - Match Reports/Discussion

Season 11 has just finished, my 7th in charge of the Stags & I've finally landed the Club it's first Top Tier Trophy - after a penalty shoot-out victory against Everton the English Cup is taking pride of place in the Field Mill trophy cabinet.

As for the league it was another fairly decent season that saw us top the table for a couple of weeks early on, however after that bright start we didn't really have any consistent form and ended up missing out on the SMFA Shield places losing on the last day to finish 9th our worst position in the top flight to date. Our best result in the league was an 8-3 thrashing of Leeds at Elland Road.

In the SMFA Shield we went out in the 3rd round to Marseille , after a decent 0-0 draw in the away leg we fell apart at home & lost 5-3. It's going to be a shame to have no SMFA Shield games this season but hopefully that'll help us to be more consistent in the league, so we can be back in SMFA action come season 13.

It's been a decent season for risers & I now have 2 88 rated players in my team Filip Djuric (signed for £500k when rated 75 in my first season in charge) & Heung-Min Son (signed for £325k when rated 75 in my second season). I've also managed to sign a couple of 87 rated players who've given the 1st team a solid base.

The Bank balance is looking reasonable & should enable me to sign a few new youngsters. I don't think the ground will get extended anymore the 24,055 capacity we have now seems to be enough.

Anyway roll on Season 12!

Re: GC52 - Match Reports/Discussion

Season 12 finished last night.

We finished 7th to qualify for the SMFA Shield again, but it feels like we're treading water, which isn't a bad thing really of course I'd love to be able to grab a top 4 finish but we simply haven't got the quality in depth to maintain our better periods of form for a whole season at present. As long as we keep up our top 8 finishes I'll be happy really.

I'd forgotten that winning the cup meant we had qualified for the SMFA Shield, however we crashed out in round 2 against Real Betis, we also got knocked out of both domestic cups in the 2nd round which was dissapointing.

I've already made a couple of moves in the transfer market for next season, one of the deals will see Joey Barton who's been club captain for the last 8 seasons depart the club, he's been a good player for us but I'm convinced his rating is going to drop. The squad has swolen to above 30 1st team players & we haven't really got the finances to sustain that so I intend to sell off our fringe players to boost the clubs bank balance.

Anyway roll on Season 13

After a 9 Season absence I've taken over Mansfield again.

Since I departed the Stags they've dropped down to Division 4 and have sold all of the players I'd bought to the club, so the squad is basic but the bank balance is healthy. The only remaining effect of my previous stint at the is that the capacity of Field Mill remains at 24,000.

Mansfield after 18 games of season 22 are currently sat in 6th place in the league & are only 7 points off the top two, so I'm going to be aiming for promotion this season & hopefully getting the Stags back up to Div 1 as soon as possible.

So far so good back at Mansfield.

Managed to go on a great unbeaten run and beat Barnsley to the Division 4 title on the last day of the season.

The capacity of Field Mill remains at the increased level it had been changed too during my previous reign at the club & the crowds are slowly coming back.

I'm aiming to sign 3 or 4 players to fill the squad ready for an assualt on Division 3 next season.
