    Hows Europe?


    Into my heart an air that kills
    From yon far country blows:
    What are those blue remembered hills,
    What spires, what farms are those?

    That is the land of lost content,
    I see it shining plain,
    The happy highways where I went
    And cannot come again.

      Fine, really no different than any other successful role on the wing.

        Here's the league. 2 points better than last year at the same time. Disappointing loss at home to Schalke near the end of the first half as I'd actually be sitting in 4th had we won.



        Doing well in Europe. Qualified early and played the very poor backups for the last 2 games.



        Big signing from Fiorentina comes in on January 1st



        Allows me to move Reus to the right where he's better.

            Rematch with Group Mate Valencia...




            Quarter Finals! We actually do have a history in the UEFA Cup winning 2 in the 70s and being runners-up in 2 more.

                So here's how the league finishes. We collapsed just a little bit at the end and let Dortmund take the Champions League spot from us.



                But we had an excuse as our players were tired on weekends after all the Thursday Games. The Semis were against Sevilla.




                Which brings us to the Final against a team vastly superior to us.



                It's also of note that this is actually a home game for us as our very own Borussia Park is hosting the final!

                The lineups:



                Bit of a quality differential there, although not the toughest midfield for the English.



                YEAH!!!!



                Finally, end of the year stats:



                Some really great surprises this year. Verratti is already ready and certainly fills that "next Pirlo" hype. Ljalic was well worth the 7m Euros and new club record transfer and the perfect foil opposite Reus. Also, Jong Tae-Se!!



                Bad? Nordveit could be playing better, and if I'm going to stick with this 4-3-3 I could probably use a pure destroyer in to replace him. Friedrich is also clearly in decline now, but his Euro League winning goal gives him another year in my book.

                WOW!!

                  Tough spot here, I've got to improve the squad on a budget. Can't pay over 24+ months because the club isn't rich. Have 12m (probably a few more putting wages to transfer fee), but can't afford expensive mistakes, so I'm having to scout my ass off.

                    Alright, so I thought I did a pretty good job in this window of bringing in young players with room to develop on the relative cheap. First two were sitting on the bench at Chelsea and Man City respectively.





                    Savic, in particular, I think could be a mega star. And then I thought that after Jali we really lacked an all around box-to-box type, which is a problem if a team ever comes in with a big bid for him, or he gets injured. I found the solution in a young kid from the Mexican league.

                      Last significant transfer of the summer, 17 year old Romanian who starred at the European U-21 Championships



                      Here is how we go into the season; not really any changes from last year aside from Bertrand and Savic.



                      Also, forgot to mention that Yaya Sonogo is in on loan from City to be the #2 striker. Next summer I think we'll have to move Jong Tae-Se to a lesser role, but we're still going with him this season.

                        Good work. Bertrand's great, he's been my back-up LB in my first season and he's been quite good, should do the job.

                          90th Minute, I'm ahead 1-0 over Dusseldorf in the 3rd Round of the German Cup playing a C team. My 16 year old defender slides in the box, wins the ball, and puts it past his own keeper for an own goal and 1-1. Except that on the slide, the attacker took a dive and the ref stops play for the dive, gives the attacker a yellow card, and awards me a free kick. HAHAHA!

                                Just the fact that it's Gladbach, and I'm already challenging for a title and have won the UEFA Cup already without any major signings.
