It's time to celebrate people! Pop the cork on that champagne and let's party in Madrid tonight. That's right, we finally got our first point in La Liga. One point. On a nil-nil draw against Murcia. At the Bernabeau. We still haven't scored a goal in La Liga and still haven't won a game.

"As you can see, my methods are working. It took awhile because of selfish bastards like Beckham only caring about themselves instead of the whole team, but you can really see that they are buying into the whole system. I can feel a worst to first climb comming on."

Figo was making less than something like 13 guys, so I decided to reward him with a 160k/week, 9M sign on fee contract. Oh yeah, and he gets 36k everytime he steps on the field. Down to 106 Million (and the Diouf transfer hasn't gone through yet, that comes december 1st)

October 18th, 2003

We lose a heartbreaker to Deportivo 1-0 at the Riazor. We didn't manage a single shot on goal. Actually we didn't manage a single shot.

"Deportivo is a tough team, and if you think selfish me-first players like Zidane and Ronaldo can beat them, then you're crazy. I just wish Figo and Zidane actually provided Romario with some chances, he looks so good in training now that I'm just gleefully hoping he gets some chances in the games. Zidane is pretty bad though."

Incidentally, the Board of Directors was disappointed with this loss, so that's never a good sign. We currently sit 20th out of 20 with 1 point and a -11 goal difference. We are 5 points behind safety, but have played 1 more game than one team and 2 more games than two teams that are 5 ahead of us. Basically it's looking bleak, we might have to win a game or two to get the board off our backs.

October 22nd, 2003

Those will be league wins though, we're getting out of the CL as soon as possible. Today we travelled to Dortmund for a CL game and we lost 1-0 thanks to an Amoroso goal in the 18th minute. Robbie Carlos got sent off because he kicked the ball right at Koller whenn the ball was out for a throw.

Oh, and some sad news as Djalminha tore up his groin and will be in rehab for the next 6 months. Unfortunately I don't think he can be as big of a clubhouse cancer while he's injured

October 26th, 2003

We set out to win this game and 1 minute in Bosnich got injured. A sign no doubt. Poor Espanyol have to face the good Real Madrid at the Bernabeau; and we won 3-0 thanks to two goals from Romario and one from Figo. Ronaldo missed a penalty.

"You see, I've been saying Ronaldo couldn't play all year, he's useless. All awards he's won in the past should be returned because in reality he blows. Romario is the best thing that's happened to us, and I've already asked him to reconsider his decision to retire at the end of the season."

Zidane and Beckham both sign 160k/week, 8M sign on fee contracts.

October 29th, 2003

We thrash Valencia 6-1 at the Bernabeau. Zidane with a hat-trick, Romario with a brace, and Ronaldo was goal-less still.

Also I think I've figured out how to keep my job a little longer. Lose every game EXCEPT, against Athletico, Valencia, Barcelona, and Deportivo.

Florentino Perez was "delighted" over the win. Hehehe, that's right, I'm doing a good job, a very good job!

A 1-0 loss to Valladolid in the road game. Such a sad sad day; we reverted back to the tactic that had been so poorly in the past.

Some good news today, it's November 1st and Zidane is already in need of rest according to my physio after the last match. Soon everyone will be. Oh, did I forget to mention that I don't believe in making substitutions? I haven't made one all year.

November 4th, 2003

We lost 1-0 to Dortmund at the Bernabeau. I think almost even worse than destroying reputation of Madrid is that every game is ending 1-0; all the Madrid supporters despise this style of play. Another boring game, another loss, although Lokomotiv Moscow is so poor we might end up in the UEFA Cup! NOOOO!!!

Madrid finances down to 86 Million

November 9th, 2003

We went across town and beat Athletico Madrid 2-1 thanks to a brace from..... MARK BOSNICH!?!?! He hit two penalties. The board are happy with the win. What a bunch of idiots. That could have bought me something like 6 losses.

I realized that we didn't have enough money available for transfers left to buy Diouf, so I had to sell Cambiasso for a cool 5M. That should give us more than enough to ruin Madrid by Christmas.

November 17th, 2003

Abel Xavier complains about not being in the first team. Good point Abel.... Salgado gets sent down to the B team to make room.

November 22nd, 2003

We get a 0-0 draw at home to Real Socieadad. The basques were so horrible they couldn't even beat us while we were playing a tactic meant to throw the game! Damn you, I don't want that point!

November 26th, 2003

We somehow beat Lyon at the Bernabeau, despite all my best efforts. 2-0 and now we're 3 points behind Lyon with one round to go. It's actually possible we could get to the second round while trying to tank the whole thing!

We travel to play Betis today and NEED a loss. I we can't lose this game I'm going to make some serious changes. Well, we did lose, 1-0 thanks to a last second tactic change by me which was a little too obvious. That's it....

"I'm sick and tired of players not living up to their abilities. I'm convinced the blame should lay with the coaches who determined their positions when they were youths; from now on we will experiment with positions and see where everyone really is at their best. I have a feeling Ronaldo just isn't a striker, he seems more like a left wingback to me."

Beckham is tired after the last match.

END OF THE MONTH BOARD REPORT......They are satisfied with the job I am doing.

December 6th, 2003

Abel Xavier is injured for 3 weeks. I refuse to call Salgado back up, so some scrub gets the place. I'm still working on the Diouf transfer, but it should be settled in a day or two.

We drew Villareal today 1-1 at the Bernabeau thanks to a 90th minute goal by Robbie Carlos (our new striker). THANKS!

December 7th, 2003

El-Hadji Diouf signs with Real Madrid for a transfer fee of 26.5 million euros. There was a small error above, but NOW we're down to 89 Million Euros. We're 145M in the red for the year!!! Oh, and an update on basic wages, I spend over 2.5M each month on that, plus the outrageous amount of appearance fees I pay every day.

December 9th, 2003

We lost 2-0 in Russia today, but it doesn't really matter, we finish 3rd in the CL group and head into the UEFA Cup. god dammit.

The injuries are really starting to pile up too, good thing we're doing intensive conditioning all season or else they'd really be dropping like flies.

December 10th, 2003

We draw Brondby in the UEFA Cup 3rd round. Hopefully they won't be so bad that I go through to the next round without trying.

Solari requests a transfer. Rejected.

December 14th, 2003

We played 19th placed Albacete, so we had to make sure they got the points from this one; they did, we lost 2-0 at the Bernabeau.

We are last place right now, into the relegation zone by 4 points, and the board are not only satisfied with my performance, but they are delighted at the financial situation of the club!! I didn't know the Madridistas were such masochists.

December 17th, 2003

Today we were knocked out of the Copa del Rey by Gimnastica in an away match. We lost 1-0. I've stopped giving press conferences because I think the media is on to me, the local sports chat ran something like this

"I have no idea how Mister Frogoi got the job managing our club, his references are obviously false and belong to Bruce Arena and Louis van Gaal. He doesn't speak french, and he looks abou 18 years old. I just can't believe he is being allowed to ruin this club and I for one won't stand for it. I hereby boycott Real Madrid until they get a manager who knows what he is doing, but this guy does NOT. Rediculous."

They're clearly just jealous.

December 21st, 2003

We played the new 19th place team this week, Mallorca, so hopefully Eto'o can destroy us like he did in the Super Cup at the beginning of the year. Yep, Eto'o got one and we lost 2-0 in the away match. Only one more match until 2004; I can't beLIEVE I've made it this far, but all indications say that the Board are satisfied with what I'm doing.

December 27th, 2003

We went to Zaragoza today for the last game of 2003 and I felt we NEEDED a nice loss here to solidify the direction we are heading in. The fans are becomming alienated and I'm definitely glad about that. We lost the game 1-0.

The board were mad about the game, so I'm hoping we have a nice rivalry game comming up to kick off 2004 and get the board back in my good graces. Solari requests transfer again, Rejected.

The reserves are mid table actually, nothing special; although with Salgado down there now they might start a nice run. No more story for probably 20 hours at the least, could be up to 30 or so. I'm writing as I play, so no catching up that plagues many stories.
