    GC59: On Thursday night I managed to win my first ever SMFA Super Cup with Nacional da Madeira beating Barcelona 3-0 thanks to goals scored by Götze, Pinilla and Oscar.
    I became manager of the team in June 2009 and it was a huge struggle competing in the Portuguese league with a stadium of 5,000 maximum capacity against giants such as Benfica, Porto or Sporting.
    Unfortunately, the chairman never increases the stadium capacity which means around 150k gate receipts per home game is the maximum the team will ever receive (plus any additional income which is not that much more). Needless to say the weekly balance is thus always very negative given a much larger wage bill.
    Therefore, it has been a constant struggle to balance the budget for almost three years, trying to keep out of the red and yet remain competitive as a team.
    So I am extremely pleased that these "Portuguese minnows" allowed me to obtain the last major title in GC (besides Playoffs Champion) that I was still missing

    Won my first Champions Cup last night since returning. Took longer than I would have wanted but my Lyon team in GC127 was totally dominant in the knockout stages and I dont think anyone would say I didn't deserve to win it!
    First knockout stage
    Bordeaux (a) WON 5-2
    Bordeaux (h) WON 1-0
    Quarter Finals
    Sevilla (h) WON 11-1 (their team was at full strength too)
    Sevilla (a) WON 5-0
    Semi Finals
    Arsenal (h) WON 3-0
    Arsenal (a) WON 3-0
    Final
    Manchester United (n) WON 3-1
    Not a bad run of results at all!

    A strange case indeed...
    Etienne Reijnen, the talented emerging CB for Dutch outfit AZ came wandering into my office today with a worried look on his face.
    I knew what it was about and cut him off at the pass...
    "Before you say anything son, I've told you, you'll have to be patient for first team opportunities."
    "I understand that gaffer and it's not that. I have this awful feeling that I can't shake. As if something really terrible is going to happen."
    "Have you had any bad luck recently? Hurt any black cats? Walked under any ladders?
    "No no", he said. Shaking his head dismissively. "It's something worse than that. I can feel it. I'm chilled through to my very bones. It's as if a dark shadow is hanging over me."
    "Have you had any training ground incidents with any of the players? You know you can tell me and we'll sort it out.
    "The lads are all great with me", he said. "Boss, I'm really, really scared."
    At this point I was starting to get a tad worried.
    "It's almost like the grim reaper is standing behind me."
    "The reaper you say. Hmm..." A light bulb lit in my little brain.
    "Give me a sec". I hammered away on the keyboard and sure enough the information and the answer appeared before my very eyes.
    "Don't worry about it son. It'll be alright."
    "How can you be so sure boss?"
    "Teb at Spartak has short listed you. But you wont be going anywhere."
    I've never seen a footballer so happy.

    So Amr Zaki who gets transfer listed due to lack of games at Dortmund, where he had 4 strikers rated higher than him and one the same at 87, ends up joining Lazio with Garcia, Cabanas, Pellissier (all 88), Crouch and Derdiyok (89) also at the club.
    Don't have a problem with the Lazio manager buying him as it's his team and I don't agree with concerns anyway, but it seems rather pointless that Zaki should decide to join because unless they decide to sell 2 of those he'll just end up getting unhappy again. Obviously not saying he should join the lowest rated side either but surely it would be better if any player over the age of 21 could decide that he wouldn't play regularly and then you move onto the 2nd highest bidder and he decides whether he would get games there and so on..

    Two strange cases today. First your player getting the frighteners put on him. Second, Fraser creating a witty post that genuinely made me chuckle. You know you want to sell him to me Fraser. There is no point throwing out these diversion tactics, the devil is too tempting!!!!
    In other news, managed to successfully jinx my side after bragging about my unbeaten run. A disappointing CL draw against an admittedly excellent Messina, was followed by my first league defeat of the season.
    Not much else to report, been hitting my PM limit most days the last few weeks trying to seal some deals but have stirred up more bile than activity (the last thing I want to do is offend people with my offers, honest) although even that is preferable to the silence normally received.
    Most of my players are available, happy to trade up or down, if anyone is interested please PM me. It's only really cash and lame ducks I am keen to avoid and the latter is obviously a matter of opinion... so try me.

    Sochaux Clean Sweep in GC151
    The first full season came to a close last night in France with Sochaux cleaning up with a domestic treble of both cups and the league title in the bag!
    We went into last nights final round of league matches with the same points total but better GD ahead of Bordeaux in 2nd place. It was a nervous finish as we drew 1-1 away to Lille. However, Bordeaux were held goalless away to Nancy and the title was ours.
    The only way appears to be down from here.

    Very happy with tonights set of results.
    GC153 Valencia -Drew 0-0 with Villarreal which I'm extremely happy about, neither of my big two were playing. The result keeps me 4th and ties me on points with Santander who are starting to slip up now as expected. Next up for us is Bilbao, me and Preppens have been waiting for this since the start of the season haha, this game will mark Falcao's debut, where I'm hoping he can terror the Bilbao defence.
    GC156 Real Madrid - Won 2-0 against a well managed Malaga, they were sitting third, myself 2nd. Was very wary of being on the wrong end of a upset here. But we came through 2-0 winners, the goals coming from Coentrao and Kaka. We had most of possesion and were giving a huge slice of luck with their key player Carzola getting sent off halfway through the game. Another bonus is that Barca lost 3-0 to unmanaged Levante so I go back joint first in the league.
    GC158 Paris Saint-Germain - After our hideous start to the league, we managed to pick up 3 points away to SM Caen. The final score saw us run out 4-3 winners, very concerning conceding three goals from three shots, but I played a mix of second team players. Hopefully we can start performing now and climb up the league.
