Season 1 - Leeds Win The Cup!


Recommended Posts

Note: Since this, I went on to win Division 2 and get to the Cup final the next season, and complete the hat-trick by winning Division 1 the next season, and the Cup for a second time.

My proudest moment of SM.

:D

We, Leeds United, have just won the English Cup. :D Still Season 1 as well, squad not brilliant.

But lets go back to the beginning...

7th June - Luke Sefton is appointed Leeds United manager.

8th-12th June - Leeds have signed a number of oldies. Cafu (88), Arribage (86), Tikhonov (86), Gorshkov (86), Lehmann (90), Borimirov (86 - at time), Hakan (88), Figo (92). They also signed some quality youngsters, in Beck, Pique, Marin and Sunny, as well as a lot of youth players. Aliadiere and Pogatetz join on loan.

14th June - Leeds lost first game of season. Oh dear.

7th July - A month into the reign. Leeds sit 2nd behind Southampton in the table. A bye in the Cup, and now they play Walsall in the shield... and Lose 1-0.

14th July - Mosquera has risen to 85, and celebrates his debut with a goal in the 2-0 win over Chesterfield (in the cup). Pique scores the other.

28th July – A brace from Hugo (82), and goals from Mauricio (82) and Mosquera (85) give Leeds a comfortable 4-0 win over Ipswich. Leeds are in the 4th round.

11th August – Leeds make it 9 wins on the trot, and 13 unbeaten in all competions after beating Sheff Utd 4-0, courtesy of goals from Gorshkov, Mosquera, and a brace from Tikhonov.

25th August – Leeds make the Semis! Mosquera scores twice in a 2-1 win over Fulham. Leeds have now won 14 games on the trot, and sit comfortably top of the league.

6th September – Sefton finally realised that he needs to do something about his debt, and sells off a number of key players, but Pato joins on loan He is cup-tied though. This follows a 7-0 victory over Southend. 18 wins on the trot now.

8th September – Deac rises to 85. Oh, and in other news, Leeds are in the final! Lampard put West Ham ahead, but Hakan equalises with 9 minutes left, and Leeds win 5-4 on Penalties.

10th – 20th September – Major dealings at Elland Road. Borimirov, Howson, Huntington, Arribage, Mosquera, Caballero, Adrien Silva and Cafu all leave. Deac, Helder and Rieks set to follow. Figo is set to leave, but Leeds are waiting for the Cup Final. Leeds sit top of Div 3 by 16 points.

21st September – Leeds bring in Pitroipa (85), Wellington (83), N’Gog (82), Lemoine (82), Fayzulin (87), Granero (87), Aissati (87), Shawcross (84), Ninkovic (84) and Rever (83) all join in time for the final.

22nd September – The Big Day!

Leeds line up with a 3-5-2. Lehmann (90), Beck (85), Pogatetz (87), Shawcross (84), Marin (87), Figo (92), Aissati (87), Granero (87), Pique (87), Wellington (83) and Hakan (88) all start. Only 3 oldies there. Douglas (83), Fayzulin, Ninkovic,Aliadiere and Hugo on the bench.

Tottenham line up with a 3-4-1-2. Coupet (92), Capdevila (92), Chimbonda (89), Lucio (94), Robben (91), Camoranesi (93), Simao (93), Xavi (96), Veron (92), Di Natale (93), Palermo (90).

As you can see, big gulf in the teams.

And then…

10: GOAL!! - Luis WELLINGTON caresses in a curling shot! What technique!

14: GOAL!! - Luis WELLINGTON shoots from an acute angle and the ball is deflected into the goal!

22: GOAL!! - A cross from the right is headed home by Sükür HAKAN !

Half Time: Leeds 3-0 Tottenham

61: GOAL!! - A right foot curling shot from outside the area by Joan CAPDEVILA glides just inside the far post! What a sublime finish!

But Leeds hold on! Leeds 3-1 Tottenham, and Leeds have stunned the world!

Figo is now leaving, so once he’s gone, and I sign the rest of the players, this will be my squad:

G Lehmann 90

LB Pogatetz 87 (Loan)

LB Boenisch 85

RB Beck 85

Re: Season 1 - Leeds Win The Cup!

This is incredibly similar to my season.

I joined a friend's setup, at the end of the second season, and Leeds were the only Championship team available (they were promoted in season 1 and my friend was Coventry). They were 16th when I joined, and I finished 15th from three games.

I rebuilt the squad for the third season, and stayed in the playoffs for almost the whole season, and somehow reached the Cup final against Tottenham (like you Seftinho :eek:).

I had lost to Tottenham in the Shield with a full strength team earlier on in the season, and decided to concentrate on the league, and play my youth team instead. Although I was in the lead twice, I drew 2-2 and lost on penalties.

So some similarities there Seftinho, except you won and I lost :o

EDIT:

Haha, forgot to mention: Well done. :D

Delighted for you Luke mate :)

I can tell you now that managing in Division 3 or 4 is a lot lot lot harder than it used to be due to chairman values and stuff and I some how got my scruffy Hull promoted and it was the hardest thing in ages on SM i've done :rolleyes: anyway very good achievement and i'd rep you for it if i could (needs spreading :()

13 turns into the new season, and we're top of Div 2, level on points with two other clubs.

Went out on pens to Bournemouth in the shield (forgot to submit :o), but in the cup Leeds are once again unbeatable. :D Can they successfully defend the cup?

Re: Season 1 - Leeds Win The Cup!

Lost 4-2 in the end. Forgot to rest my first teamers so I had my second string playing their first.

But to win the cup one season and reach the final in the second with Leeds isn't too bad. :D

Plus, the money's good.

Also, the commentary and stats don't add up. We had 7 shots with just 2 on target, yet...

2: A thunderous header from close range is parried by Brad FRIEDEL

22: Brad FRIEDEL produces a solid save to prevent what would have been a wonderful goal

30: Brad FRIEDEL dives to his right and palms away a powerful effort

49: GOAL!! - The short corner is picked up by Lucas VIATRI who curls it round the unsighted keeper!

76: GOAL!! - A right foot curling shot from outside the area by Milos NINKOVIC glides just inside the far post! What a sublime finish!

80: Brad FRIEDEL tips it onto the bar

I count 6 shots on target right there... :confused:

Unlucky Seft. Which setup is this in?

You could do with bringing the shots on target issue up with Ste to be honest, it seems like a bug to me.

Re: Season 1 - Leeds Win The Cup!

I don't want to dissapoint you but yesterday with a Bradford City in first season , with many youngsters but some oldies too , I won my second trophy :)

I won both Shield and Cup and now I'm going after the treble , I'm second in Div 4 at one point from the first team ...

Soon I will start a thread but I want to calm a little because I'm too excited and I don't want to make some wrong investition with all the 12 M I have after this final :D

But still , I think that winning a cup with Leeds it's a good achievement too , congratulations;)

Thanks.

And nice one - sounds very similar to mine. For some reason I can only do well in the Cup. In the Shield, I've gone out first round, third round, and this year the Semis.

As for the other teams - Man United and Liverpool are pretty much the same teams as before, with the odd 94+ player extra, Chelsea are one of those teams who have 11 95+ players and that's it. No idea about Arsenal, but considering they are bottom, doesn't suggest that they're that well run.

My first team:
