Football Manager Diary – Season Round Up
This one is just going to be a bit of a stat round up of the season, and will help with the planning for next year
Our home form is 6th best in the league, as is the away form.Â We’re the 8th top scorers in the league, and 7th best defence.
We only got 1 penalty all season, the worst in the Premiership, but we were joint top in goals from corners (15) with Man United.
One of the best discipline records in the premiership, with only 2 red cards all season (joint lowest in league) and only 46 yellows (15th best in the Prem).
Joey O’Brien and James Tomkins played every game in the Premiership.
Crouchy finished joint 8th in the Premiership scoring charts with 13, Carroll finished 12th
Rat finished 3rd in assists, probably due to all those corners, with 13. He also finished top in MOTM awards, with 8, and has the 3rd best average in the league at 7.43
Jermaine Jones is the worst disciplined in out squad picking up 8 yellows to finish 22nd in yellow cards.Â Thats 8 in 11 games by the way.
Sommer finishes 5th in clean sheets, with 11
Crouchy finishes 2nd in offsides with 54 over the season.
Tomkins finishes top in the league in both Interceptions, and Key Headers
Heres the full player stats
Sommer had a good 1st season. Very happy with him. Adrian is still waiting to be shupped out, and once he does I’ll be looking at bring in a younger 2nd keeper
Cant complain about their performances this season. All 3 centre backs Tomkins, Reid and Collins have averages over 7. The leftback Rat made team of the year, and Antonelli is begging for a chance in the team. Ive promised him he’ll be playing net season. O’Brien at right backs done well too but thats one position I’d be happy to bring someone in. Even though the central defenders have done brilliant there is the chance that if an option comes available that I’d snap at it. Not a priority tho.
First up the loan and new players. I wouldnt mind bring in Padoin if I can get the right price, hes been a decent squad player. Failing that maybe another year on loand. Mudingayi was ok but no value based on his wages. Jones wasnt the signing I hoped, but that was partly down to the formations I played. Keita hasnt even had a chance in the team, and we havent had the injuries to need him. Yossi hasnt put the performances in for his wages either.
For the players we had already Nobles the undoubted star. Im a bit disappointed in his goals and assists return tho. Diames done OK but with Liverpool sniffing round theres a chace he could move on. Jarvis is definately out, hes just not played enough. Im happy enough with Downing and Cole, Cole was out of contract on his 50k a week but Ive signed him up on one at 25k a week. Morrisons nowhere near showing potential yet.
Crouchy and Carroll linked up really well, tho weirdly they didnt score that many headers. Petric contract is up and hes gone. I probably need another one or two squad strikers to give some depth
Overall thoughts – Anyone in midfielder, some back up strikers, and possibly a defender or two are on the shopping list.
Now fuck this fannying about, lets get on it.
