What a season. Lets review it.

Heres the final league table

147 - League

What a run. I’m delighted. Having a look at our squad

151 - Squad stats

The first choice front 3 were the undoubted stars. Guillaume scored an amazing amount of goals from the AM position, and Brunt was the big star striker. You cant fault Templeman tho, coming in at January and Gonzalez also did really well from midfield.

Lets look at the Conference stats

152 - Skrill Stats

Cant help but be dissappointed I didnt get the top assists, but outside of that we dominated the rest of the stats.

The Premiership top 6 finished like this

154 - Prem

But as the season ends LVG gets sacked by Man United. Relegated were Leicester, Sunderland and Palace.

Awards are in, first up internally the Player, and Team of the season

168 - POTY167 - Best 11Haven’t got a clue how Beardsley makes the bench there, or how Byrne makes DM ahead of Mozika or Irie-Bi. Byrne cant even play DM.

League awards are in too

155 - Player of Season 156 - Scorer

And of course the big one….

157 - MOTY

WHAT

THE

FUCK

Lets just look at the stats

158 - MOTY

Wow. My fellow managers must hate me.

Theres one piece of news to console me tho

164 - Ox

Oh yes. We’ll be playing Peter Reid next season.

The season review is in too

166 - Season review

Before we go lets do a review for the transfers for next year

Goalkeeper and Defence

161 - GK=DF

Bundled these together as we only have 1 keeper anyway. Arnold has been a great signing, and kept Mildenhall out of the team and he’s now left on a free.

In the defence Parkes has been great, and could be a captain for years. I like Lockyer next to him, but it may be time to move McChrystal on and bring some better players in. Bradley and Chantler would both be nice to bring in on permanent deals if possible.

Midfield

162 - MF

This was out weakest position last year, but possibly our strongest now. Guillaume is coming off a hot season, as is Gonzalez. I’d like to keep Sinnott and Storrie if possible. Byrne was on loan, but the deals been done to keep him. Clarke and Irie-Bi both have good potential, and Mozika is a beast.

Theres no real massive need for players in midfield, unless I decide to bring in another CM, or start playing with wingers.

Strikers

163 - Strikers

An immense season. Maybe I need another one to make sure I have a rotation next year.

Shopping list – Back up goalie, Center back, Striker. Sign all loan players permanently.

Lets get to next season.
