December:

Our new tactic carries on paying dividends, with another win and a draw against OHL in which we were very unlucky not to win.

January:

A undefeated month! Our new signing up front Tychosen makes an immediate impact, with 2 goals in 3 games. We’re flying up the table now!

February:

Another strong strong month. Winning the league seems like a possibility if we can keep this up..

March:

We *just* miss out on the league and have to enter for the European playoff group.

April:

A decent enough month, we’re holding our own against Pro League teams, so whilst we may have missed out on promotion this season, I think we’ll be in good stead for next season.

May:

A strong finish. Roll on next season!

 

Season Summary: Overall I’m pretty happy with this season. It obviously started horrendously, but then I genuinely thought we were in with a chance for promotion but sadly fell at the final hurdle. The European play-offs also surprised me, we competed well with the teams from the Pro League A which is a good sign and I think we’re in a good place to seriously smash the league next season.

Transfers (click here for the Transfer History) 

Juan Diego Li – Didn’t get much game-time due to the form of Moustafa, but will definitely get rotated regularly next season.

Yannick Cortie – A fantastic debut season, fully expecting a bid in close season for him. Unsure whether to cash in or not though.

Vincent Pires  – Didn’t get any game-time, a good player to have in our player pool though, and will probably be one of the first to be sent to our new club when that happens.

Sinan Keskin  What a transfer. Played so many games and was better than I could’ve possibly imagined, should be fighting off clubs for him over the summer.

Peter Jul Nielsen – Another fantastic signing, and a great shout for one of the players of the season. A great deal.

Gedion Zelalem – A no risk option used to strengthen our midfield, he didn’t end up getting much game-time (much to the disdain of Wenger). Disappointing transfer but didn’t cost anything in fee or wages.

Gervero Markiet – Not gonna lie, my scouts smashed it this year, another recommendation the duo of Markiet and Cortie were formidable to any centre-forward. A great deal.

Hawbir Moustafa – Like I said when he first signed, hopefully a few good performances would see him get back into the Iraqi set-up, which happened. An incredible amount of assists from full-back, what a buy!

Mads Dohr Tychosen – A good deal of money was spent on this young forward, but he chipped in with plenty of goals. Still a bit raw but will certainly be useful in forming a strong basis for our empire.

Yann Mabella – Only a loan deal and was signed as another no risk option to score goals, and that he did, great deal. Shame he’ll cost too much to make it a permanent deal.
