A disappointing end all in after a positive result at Old Trafford to start the month. Liverpool already had 4th wrapped up by the final game meaning the Sunderland game was just ensuring a 5th placed finish and European football at least even if it the Europa League (I'm sure the following season was the first it started as that). Here is the final table.

Robinho ended up my top scorer on 12. Now for a well earned break and see what happens in the summer...

That's a gutting end to the season.

Good start considering you're likely to get stronger after every window though.

End of season review

This is just a little extra part I'm adding on to the end of season for anyone reading wishing to see how their side are getting on or interested in comparing what happened to real life to what happens here. Will be league tables and cup final results from the Scottish and English leagues, the Champions league and UEFA cup and league winners and relegation/promotion from league below from the main foreign leagues (I don't mind screenshotting the UK leagues and cup final results but doing that for the foreign leagues would takes ages so updates on them a little more brief).

Good season for Leeds and nearly a perfect one for Chelsea had Man Utd not pipped them to the Premier League title. I wonder where Bournemouth will be in 10 years time...

edit - forgot to add the bottom part of League 2 in my screenshot but 2 of 3 teams in that league had points deductions.

Some incredibly tight divisions here, 1st - 9th in the First Division were only seperated by 15 points and top - bottom in division 3 were only seperated by 20 points :lol: For some comparison, Rangers won the SPL 19 points ahead of Celtic! And also the League and Scottish cup to make it a treble.

OYF, seeing St Johnstone in the First Division has me all sorts of tempted to go back to this.

I had funny thoughts about Djourous injury time goal being him being the unlikely man to finish off a fluid counter attack while Bayern were chasing an equaliser, but I watched the goals and it was a header from a corner.

Think it was the season you won it where we beat you about 4 games in then you went unbeaten for about 7 months?

Didn't expect this till another year or 2 down the line but the board are expecting a top 4 finish this time round after last seasons near miss and such have offered me the following.

Very tasty, and that's not including the pending outgoings of a few players through end of contract/sale.

As for the start to the new campaign...

Couldn't ask for much better from the first 2 fixtures against 2 newly promoted sides but the 3rd will be a toughie against the Champions League holders.

Can we get a wee side by side of your season and the "real life" season after each year?

Man City's? Or what I've done above with other leagues but with the "real" results next to them for comparison? The latter would take ages :lol:

SEASON 2 - 2009/2010

To begin lets have a reminder of how the real life Man City got on that year.

Premier League - 5th
League Cup - Semi Final - lost 4-3 on agg to Man Utd (Premier League)
FA Cup - Round 5 (last 16) - lost 3-1 in replay to Stoke (Premier League) after 1-1 draw
Top scorer - Carlos Tevez
Player of the year - Carlos Tevez

*No European involvement this season*

I know the above 2 awards won't be repeated as Tevez signed a new deal to remain at Man Utd in my game :lol:

August

Before the new campaign started a couple more players joined. A centre back and a back up left back to Rat that I got on the cheap.

This man also returned from his loan at Everton the previous season and will be getting his opportunity in and around the first team as he has decent stats.

Solid results in the Europa League tie to take me to the group stages but I would've liked the Premier League game to go a bit more comfortably. Can't complain about the 100% record overall.

First team squad (until January at least)

Spoiler

1095789047_squadsep.thumb.png.7596152cf977b0a814c2cb72a045bf2d.png

I tried to punt Elano as he wouldn't shut up about wanting a move but nobody took him so he can just rot until January. Will probably end up in my reserves. Thanks for your good efforts last season, but I have players who want to be here.

Reserves (some recognisable names here)
