They will be led by returning player Angel Rangel, who's success for the club over a decade ago earned him a move to Swansea City.

Strongest XI:

Casilla (89)

Rangel [C] (85) - Amat (86) - Gomez (87) - Martin (87)

Romeu (88) - Granell (85)

Tello (89) - Soriano (88) - Deulofeu (89)

Vazquez (86)

Gerard Deulofeu represents the talisman in our side. He's obviously had an up and down career, but has so much ability and despite his career stalling, he's still only 23 and I imagine will have a very good career at the highest level. He will be supported on the opposite wing by another key player in Cristian Tello, who's been in good form for Real Betis this season and hopefully between the pair they can provide plenty of creativity in my team for seasons to come. 

We had plenty of strong options in midfield, but we eventually decided that Oriol Romeu was the best option given his form this season for Southampton. Despite Southampton struggling, Romeu is showing that he definitely belongs at this level and I imagine will have plenty of interest in him if Southampton were to go down. 

Adama Traore offers cover on either flank for the time being, but long term is somebody that we'd back to potentially kick on quite a bit in his career in the future. Traore has so much potential, but has already been on the receiving end of two Premier League relegation's. He's been one of the best players in the Championship this season and I think it's only really a matter of time before he's impressing in the Premier League.

Pol Lilora and Aaron Martin come in as two young full backs that will make an immediate first team impact. Lilora is a regular for Sassuolo, whilst Aaron Martin is one of Espanyol's most valuable players and we were more than happy to invest £12 million to have us sorted at full back for the foreseeable future. 

We were obviously particularly limited with the players we could bring in for long term success, and as a result are well aware that on the face of it we've paid over the odds for Pablo Maffeo. He comes in as the only player that we were prepared to pay over the odds for (he eventually joined for just shy of £6 million), but safe in the knowledge that he was the best talent available to us.

Aleix Garcia is another Manchester City youngster on loan at Girona that we've picked up. He's not made the same short term impact that Maffeo has done at Girona, but is highly thought of and a player that we expect to eventually become a regular for our side.

An exciting prospect to join the club is Terressa born 19 year old winger Dani Olmo, who's come through the ranks at Dinamo Zagreb after leaving Barcelona for them at the age of 16. Olmo has been a regular on the wing for Zagreb this season, scoring six goals in twenty two appearances and quite a nice rogue choice to make up part of our squad. He's also the sole representative of the town of Terressa in our side, so it's nice to have a local resident as part of the long term future of the club.

We've brought in another two players who left Barcelona at a similar age, allowing us to bring in extremely talented players without it having an effect on the amount of players we can bring in from Barcelona themselves. Sergio Gomez is the youngest prospect to come in, at just 17 years of age. He's recently left Barcelona for Borussia Dortmund for 3 million having been pretty much sensational for Spain U17's, and he's expected to make a first team impact for them in seasons to come. Similarly, we've brought in Jordi Mboula, who left Barcelona for Monaco last summer for the same fee and whilst he's yet to feature for his name club professionally, in time we expect these two to be among our most valuable players.

Terrassa FC

Season 1 Review

Cristian-Tello.jpg

Terrassa FC have gripped the hearts of the newly formed nation of Catalonia, winning the inaugural season of the Catalonian First Division with their team of players exclusively born in the region. The team saw their crowds increase by over 2,500 over the course of the season, as the locals got behind the side that have tapped into the nationalist sentiment  in the area following their political freedom. The season has seen key players in the sides title winning campaign become national heroes, as the likes of Gerard Deulofeu, Cristian Tello and Jonathan Soriano have cemented their names in to the history of Catalonian football.

The league was won on the final day of the season as a draw at Girona proved to be enough to win the title. Joan Jordan scored his first goal for the club at the most vital time, and his equaliser gave Terrassa the point they needed. Angel Rangel was sent off in the dying minutes, but returned at full time to lift the title for the club he first joined in 2006.

 

Player of the Season: Gerard Deulofeu (18 games, 3 goals, 8 assists, 2 MOTM, AvP 7.28)

Young Player of the Season: Aaron Martin (18 games, 0 goals, 0 assists, 0 MOTM, AvP 6.17)

Top Scorer: Jonathan Soriano - 5 goals

Most Assists: Gerard Deulofeu - 8 assists

Very much enjoyed Season 1 at Peralada, but then we only lost one game and won the Division 2 title, so I suppose that will sway my opinion. That said, it was very close and 4 teams could have finished top going into the final game. Lots of clubs, including us, have very small stadiums, so I expect many teams are in debt. 1.5m for finishing top didn't settle the accounts, so I'm hoping the chairman is in a good mood or we'll have the same squad for Division 1!

It was very much a team effort as well, and the goals were shared out:

Richarlison - 6

Quagliarella - 6

Lingard - 5

Bailey - 4

We also had the best defence, conceding only 11 goals across the season (18 games).

Jesse Lingard was our player of the season with an average performance rating of 7.61 out of 10. He also chipped in with an excellent 10 assists. 

Hopefully promotion brings in a few more fans, because an average attendance of 879 isn't paying the bills! Very much looking forward to the challenge of Season 2! Great little league this!

Terrassa FC

Season 2 Review

USA-v-Spain-Group-A-FIF-010.jpg

Terrassa FC failed to retain there Division 1 title despite a valiant effort, as Reus Deportivo marched towards the title with an impressive season. The highlight of the season for Terressa came early on, with a 3-2 win over CE Europa in the Charity Shield in front of over 75,000 fans in the Maracana as goals from Cristian Tello, Sergio Gomez and Joan Jordan secured them there only silverware of the season. In the league they were ultimately eleven points of the pace at the top of the league, but with a fourth place finish they've secured themselves European football for next season.

The star man of the season was Cristian Tello, who is now the club's all time top scorer thanks to his season goal haul of eleven, and he deservedly picked up the club's Player of the Season at the end of season awards. Gerard Deulofeu didn't quite reach the heights of last season, but still came away from the season with ten assists with his creativity at this level undisputed. The only new first team signing was Rafinha Alcantara, who was fairly impressive in his first campaign for the club. Por Lirola had a break through season, beating off competition from club captain Angel Rangel to claim a place in the first team and winning the Young Player of the Season whilst Pablo Maffeo is beginning to justify his £5.9 million signing as he's starting to make a first team impact at the club.

Terrassa FC

Season 3 Review

It's been a disappointing season for Terrassa, as they failed in their aims for more silverware. Given the circumstances though, the club will just be happy to remain in the top flight as the increasing strength of their competition and their foreign players has started to take a hit on the club's success. 

The club looked set for Division 2 football with just five games to go, with the club deep in to the relegation zone. They managed to save their top flight status though with four wins and a draw in those five games, including wins over champions CF Reus Deportiu and runners up Girona. In those five games, Jonathan Soriano scored six goals, which helped him to claim Division 1's Golden Boot with eight goals for the season. Soriano also managed an impressive nine assists, which helped him to win the gameworld's Player of the Season as his performances were the real highlights of the club's season. 

There has been wide debate among Terrassa supporters, on whether or not they should sacrifice the club's traditions of only signing Catalonian players in exchange for potentially more success in bringing in foreign players to the club. However, the club have stated outright that they'll continue the tradition that has been taken to so warmly within the region. The support that they've received has been overwhelming, with the club breaking it's attendance record this season with a crowd of 7,948 against CE Sabadell this season.

The club's lack of success this season for most of this season has also been attributed by some to the club standing still, with no business done in and out of the club at all this season. This is in part due to the financial constraints of the club, which is struggling to gain in any sort of money at it's current rate with a wage bill of £580,000 difficult to maintain without winning any competitions. Moving forward though, there looks to be some business looming with captain Angel Rangel waving goodbye to the club that he lifted the Division 1 title with and Alvaro Vazquez expected to move on as well.
