Mostly has been an uneventful year with Roma... We're 6th and climbing, but I took over the team when they were in a pretty big hole, so despite the improvement the goal to qualify for the CL seems far-fetched.


That said, this is so far the best result I've accomplished in the season.







Juve is running away with the title; I think they have something like 58 points through 24 games and about 10 points clear from second place. I utterly dominated them in their arena.

Maybe a sign that things are taking a turn for the better? I can only hope.


I'm also in the final of Coppa Italia. I have no ******* idea why I'm only good at getting results in cup games. It's baffling.

So yesterday I finally get to the final of the Coppa Italia. I pull off one of the greatest escapes of domination with a narrow win...











I was happy because it has otherwise been a terrible season... I had to leave the house, and I left the game on. I came back and the computer crashed without me saving.







Of course, when I replay it I got dominated again...







Pretty sure this season can't possibly get any worse.

Pretty much. Aside from the two Ukrainian PL titles all I've won have been ******* domestic cups.


So last season was so bad I decided to not even show the table. I didn't get sacked, though. Instead I was rewarded with a large sum of money to use to scrap this ****ty team and buy a new one.


First signing was this guy I had my eye on since last season, but due to the stupid limit on non EU players, it was blocked. Stupid ******* rule.




Danielle De Rossi finally retired, so to fill in his void, I signed this guy:



I needed fullbacks badly, so I got these two:





This guy is older, but of all the players I scouted, this was the only decent left back willing to join that wasn't out of my reach.

Another midfielder because I got rid of almost all of them:




This guy reminds me of the striker I had at Schalke, which happens to have his same last name...




And then this guy on a free:



In hindsight it was a bad signing because it blocked me from this stud Brazilian from Bremen but he's useful enough.


For the future:






I need a left winger since Mata is leaving on a free, so I'd like to have one waiting in the wings... and I could use a right winger because my dickhead starting winger decided to keep bitching and I granted his transfer request.

You're not in any job long enough to taste European glory. You need to build a squad and have them grow as a team. That said, I ******* love reading about this journeyman game and hope you eventually make the jump to Barcelona or Man U.

In the quarters of the Europa League, I happen to draw the team that brought me my first trophy and the team's first trophy...


When I arrived there I was received with a warm welcome.





Unfortunately for the Dnipro faithful, that was all there was to cheer about.





I had seen that AC Milan beat Fenerbache 2-0 meaning it was more than likely to be paired up against them in the semis, which I wasn't looking forward to. They've been a major pain in the ass and I haven't yet beat them (except that time I beat them but didn't save...)

Then I see this:









Onto the semis!

Finals!




And of course, in the league I'm in a huge slump and what looked like title contention the whole way now looks like I'll have to battle for the last CL spot...
