2010/2011 Half-Season Update

Dean Hoo is considered an important first team player for Leeds United (currently 21st in the Championship). He has made 14 appearances in all, scoring 5 goals and a 6.61 rating. Currently valued at 1.5 million pounds. He has been described as a model professional and is part of the England U-19 set-up.

Marc Vaughan is a promising midfielder with an evasive and volatile style of handling the media. Valued at 1.6 million, he is considered to be indispensable to Norwich (23rd in the Championship). No surprise since he has appeared in 26 games so far and managed a 7.21 rating (1 goal and 3 assists, 4 MOMs).

Rob Nielsen eventually signed with nPower League 1 side Bournemouth (18th place). He signed late, only joining the side on 11 January 2011. After making 3 appearances (scoring 1 goal in the process, 6.47 rating), he twisted his ankle and is expected to miss about 3-4 weeks of action. Valued at 625k, he is a star for the US youth side, with 8 goals in 7 appearances and has publicly stated he only wants to play for the US.

Daniel Ertmann signed for Liverpool and is valued at 2 million. He has been very good for the U-18 side, scoring 12 goals and making 6 assists in 20 appearances. He has also appeared in 3 games for the full team (1 goal, 6.60 rating), including a game in the Euro Cup where he scored the only goal against Braga. Currently listed for loan but he feels he is too good to be loaned out.

Jace Hunter signed a contract with the Barcelona Atletic team, which is Barcelona's B team in the Liga Adelante. However, he is only joining them in March 2011 so nothing much to report at this time. He is a youth international for Canada.

Julio O'Donnell is worth 975k and has been sent on loan to Watford (16th in the Championship) by Birmingham. He hasn't made any first team appearances for Watford yet but has played well in 2 reserve games (8.00 rating, 1 MOM). He has been dubbed the new Michael Dawson and is part of the England U-21 team.

Bernard Blaze is a regular first team player for Watford. Valued at 1.1 million, the England U-19 international has appeared in 29 games, scored 1 goal and made 10 assists and there are rumour Manchester City is interested in him. He also won the Championship Young Player of the Month award for August 2010.

Frank Justice is also part of the Norwich first team where he has played in 14 games (2 goals, 1 assist, 6.86 rating). His performances have drawn the eye of both Manchester United and Manchester City and there is speculation they may try to purchase the 1.2 million pound valued youngster.

Path Twelve has performed solidly for FC Mulhouse so far (23 games, 1 goal, 2 assists, 2 MOMs, 7.00 rating). His disciplinary record has been appalling though, with 8 yellow cards and 1 red card so far. Valued at 500k right now.

Ubaldo Geronimo is another one who left it late before signing a contract, with non-league side Luton Town (1st in the Blue Square Premier). He was immediately given his first team debut where he managed a 7.00 rating. Valued at 475k.

Will Brown also just signed for Stevenage (15th in League 2) and is valued at 300k. He was also given an immediate debut and he managed a 6.30 rating in his first game. He is another star for the US youth team (8 goals in 5 appearances).

2010/2011 End of Season Update:

Dean Hoo scored 7 goals in 30 appearances for Leeds United and a 6.50 rating. Now part of the England U-21 team, Dean Hoo has been transfer listed at his request as Leeds United were relegated from the Championship. Whether another club will try to pick him up will be one development to keep an eye on in the summer.

Marc Vaughan played a total of 43 games for Norwich (1 goal, 5 MOMs, 5 yellow cards, 7.20 rating) and helped Norwich to 18th place in the Championship. He is happy to stay on at the club and there is no indication of any interest from other sides as yet. Also part of the England U-21 team.

Rob Nielsen appeared in 10 games for Bournemouth, scoring 2 goals and assisting on 2 more (6.45 rating). His efforts were not enough and Bournemouth were relegated from League 1. However, Rob is happy to stay on at Bournemouth for next season.

Daniel Ertmann was a star for the Liverpool U-18 squad as he scored 20 goals and created 9 more in 29 appearances. He appears to have had a change of heart and is now looking forward to a loan move to get first team experience next season. Part of the England U-21 team.

Jace Hunter has been touted as the next Lars Hirschfield. He started out with the Barcelona B team where he made 7 appearances but conceded 14 goals (1 clean sheet, 6.33 rating). He was then moved to the Barcelona U-19 squad for next season.

Julio O'Donnell was a very good player for Watford (9th place in the Championship) while on loan and his first team experience will serve him in good stead for next season. He made 13 apperances with 2 assists and 1 MOM (7.32 rating). However, he also accumulated 7 yellow cards in those games, a quick appalling number. Part of the England U-21 set-up but he is serving a 3 match ban for a red-card incident.

Bernard Blaze finished the season with 45 appearances for Watford (2 goals, 16 assists, 6 MOMs, 5 yellows, 1 red, 7.10 rating). Man City is still supposedly interested in the youngster, who is an England U-19 international. He won the August Young Player of the Month award in the Championship and was named to the Championship Team of the Week twice this season.

Frank Justice ended up falling out with his club's management after February as he only played 2 games thereafter (16 games, 2 goals, 1 assist, 2 yellows, 6.89 rating). The youngster is upset at the lack of playing time and has indicated he wants to leave the club and Manchester City are monitoring the sitaution. However, he hasn't formally put in a transfer request yet.

Path Twelve enjoyed his first season with FC Mulhouse (41 games, 3 goals, 8 assists, 4 MOMs, 13 yellows, 2 reds, 6.98 rating). No interest from any professional sides yet in the young Frenchman but he doesn't seem to be affected by that as yet.

Ubaldo Geronimo is proving to be a club favourite at Luton Town (1st in BSP), which was promoted to League 2 as BSP champions. He managed 6 goals in 20 games, to go with 3 assists and 1 MOM award (6.82 rating). That included an assist in the Hatters 2-1 win of the FA Trophy over Crawley, which makes Ubaldo the first youngster to win a competition.

Will Brown scored 5 goals in 14 starts for Stevenage (15th in League 2) and was named to the League 2 team of the week once. His performances are attracting the attention of Wolves and a move might be on the cards for the youngster, although he has indicated he is enjoying his time with Stevenage.

Season 2011/2012 Start of Season Update:

Dean Hoo left Leeds United for Blackburn Rovers (Premier League) for 675k. It's not clear if he will play any real part for Blackburn this year but he is supposed to be part of the squad rotation.

Marc Vaughan remains at Norwich where he has really impressed in the pre-season friendlies (5 gams, 4 assists, 1 MOM, 7.66 rating).

Rob Nielsen left Bournemouth for Bolton (Premier League) for 450k. Similar to Dean Hoo, it's unclear how much impact he will have this season although he has impressed in his first friendly (2 goals, 7.80 rating).

Daniel Ertmann is given the no. 11 shirt at Liverpool. Does this mean he has a chance at regular first team football this year? He has appeared in 5 friendly games and scored 2 goals (6.96 rating) so maybe there's a chance.

Jace Hunter is with the Barcelona U-19s. However, he has indicated he wants to leave because he is expected to sit on the bench for the U-19 squad this year and he is too ambitious for that.

Julio O'Donnell is back at Birmingham but he may be off again on a loan. He's part of the reserve team but 3 Championship clubs (Huddersfield, Portsmouth and Reading) want him on loan. One issue though is that Julio feels he is too good to be loaned out so we'll have to see how that pans out.

Bernard Blaze ... the big move happened and he signed for Man City for 2.5 million. Whether it's a good move will have to be seen because he's been put in the reserves and listed for loan. The only club interested right now is Coventry City (League 1), which would be football at a lower level than what Bernard Blaze experienced at Watford last season.

Frank Justice is apparently happy at Norwich again and is no longer looking for a move. He has played in 4 pre-season friendlies (1 assist, 7.32 rating) so it could mean regular football for him this year.

Path Twelve did make a move after all as Sunderland paid 475k to FC Mulhouse for his services. He's now in the reserve team but has been listed on loan and he's keen to leave for first team experience.

Ubaldo Geronimo is considered indispensable to Luton Town. He played in 6 pre-season games (2 goals, 1 assist, 6.63 rating) and will likely be spear-heading the Luton attack. Rumours of Napoli being interested in him though.

Will Brown also left for a bigger club as Wolves paid 325k for his services. Similar to some of the other youngsters, he's been listed for loan and he's looking forward to spending time at a club where he can get first team football before returning to the Premier League side.

Ouch, struck out hugely on physical stats plus team work and work rate. Hopefully those aren't quite as important as they are in EHM

Seems like my guy has got a decent start. 7 yellow cards in just 13 games, and already thinking he's too good to go on loan! The 15 points in dirtiness and controversy as a trait is already paying off!

Should probably do an update on the winners of trophies last season.

English Premier League
Winner: Arsenal
2nd place: Man Utd
3rd place: Chelsea
FA Cup: West Ham beats Arsenal
League Cup: Nottingham Forest beats Hull

Italian Serie A
Winner: Roma
2nd place: Genoa
3rd place: Inter
Italian Cup: Lazio beats Napoli

Spanish La Liga
Winner: Atletico Madrid
2nd place: Barcelona
3rd place: Real Madrid
Spanish Cup: Atletico Madrid beats Getafe

French Ligue 1
Winner: PSG
2nd place: Lyon
3rd place: Auxerre
French Cup: Montpellier beats Le Mans
Coupe de la Ligue: Rennes beats ESTAC Troyes

German Bundesliga
Winner: Leverkusen
2nd place: Wolfsburg
3rd place: Stuttgart
German Cup: Hoffenheim beast Schalke

Champions League
Real Madrid beats Man Utd

Euro Cup
Porto beats Man City

Summary:
An interesting season in Spain as Atletico Madrid puts together a strong season to do a double, which is a very unexpected result. Real Madrid did restore some pride by winning the Champions League though. The city of Manchester was left with a sense of a missed opportunity as their clubs lost in 2 European finals and Man Utd also came in 2nd in the Premier League.

Arsenal nearly did a double but lost to West Ham in the finals of the FA Cup. On the other hand, surprising League Cup final as it was an all Championship affair and Nottingham Forest prevailed in that event.

In Germany, Bayern was nowhere to be found amongst the trophy winners as Leverkusen won the title. Roma was another surprise winner in Italy, finishing ahead of a surprising Genoa team.

2011/2012 Mid-season Update:

Dean Hoo is a squad player at Blackburn and he has made 9 league appearances so far. However, his returns have been poor, just 1 goal and 1 assist in those 9 starts and a 6.60 rating.

Marc Vaughan has made a 2.6 million pound move to Manchester City. Was it the right move? He's currently in the reserves where he has been playing well (7 games, 1 goal, 3 assists, 1 MOM, 7.36 rating) but it remains to be seen if he can break into the first team squad at some point, what with Gareth Barry, Yaya Toure, Nigel De Jong all ahead of him in the pecking order.

Rob Nielsen is having difficulty adjusting to the pace of the Premiership. While he is with the first team, his performances have been spotty so far (5 games, 6.10 rating). If not for 2 decent cup performances, his rating would be terrible (5.87 in 3 Premiership starts). His performance in the reserves is impressive though (8 games, 6 goals, 2 assists, 1 MOM, 7.23 rating).

Daniel Ertmann made 1 cup appearance for Liverpool in the first half of the season before being sent out on loan to Coventry. He has started well there, scoring 2 goals in 4 starts (7.20 rating, 1 MOM).

Jace Hunter is the starter for the Barcelona U-19s but he still wants to leave the club. Great performances though, conceding just 10 goals in 25 games and having 17 clean sheets and 2 MOMs (7.26 rating). Barcelona may try hard to keep him at the club.

Julio O'Donnell just returned from a loan with Doncaster (League 1) where he performed well again (22 games, 2 assists, 5 MOMs, 6 yellows, 1 red, 7.59 rating). He has since started appearing for Birmingham and is showing himself to be rocksteady at the back (3 games, 3 yellos, 7.13 rating). He was named to the League 1 team of the week 4 times and was the young player of the month for League 1 in August.

Bernard Blaze has been sent out on loan to Coventry as well and the club will be hoping he strikes up a good partnership with Daniel Ertmann. He's appeared in 18 games so far and has played really well (3 goals, 4 assists, 3 MOMs, 7.42 rating). He has been named to the League 1 team of the week once and was young player of the month in January.

Frank Justice is an important first team player at Norwich now. He has appeared in 26 games (3 goals, 4 assists, 2 yellows, 7.00 rating) but had to lay off for 4 weeks in December with strained ankle ligaments.

Path Twelve is also at Norwich, sent on loan by Sunderland to get first team experience. He's played decently (7 games, 1 assist, 6.80 rating) but the kid is injury prone. In 2 seasons so far, he has suffered a twisted ankle (5 weeks out), a concussion (10 days out), a broken arm (6 weeks out), a torn groin muscle (7 weeks out) and a twisted knee (4 days out).

Ubaldo Geronimo did make his move to Napoli in the end but then things kinda fell apart. He had made 3 appearances for Luton (3 goals, 1 assist, 7.30 rating) then he made one substitute appearance for Napoli (5.90 rating) ... and for some reason was sent out on loan to Chateauroux. However, he can't play any more professional games because a player can only play for 2 clubs in 1 season! A wasted year for Ubaldo.

Will Brown is at Wolves. While he's part of the main squad, he has only made 1 cup appearance so far (1 goal, 7.60 rating) but he's been fantastic in reserve games (13 appearances, 11 goals, 1 assist, 4 MOMs, 5 yellows, 1 red, 7.48 rating).

2011/2012 End of Season update

Dean Hoo finishes his first season with Blackburn Rovers (14th in the Premier League). The England U-21 international (4 caps, 3 goals) had an average year but it's important to remember that all of the youngsters are only 18. 15 starts, 2 goals, 1 assist and a 6.49 rating for Dean.

Marc Vaughan did not go out on loan and spent his year playing mostly for the Man City reserves (Man City finished 13th in the league). He played 3 games, starting 1, in the Premier League (6.70 rating) and held his own during the limited game time. He was impressive in the reserve league (12 appearances, 1 goal, 5 assists, 2 MOMs, 7.25 rating) as well. Currently being mentored by Yaya Toure, he is regularly called up to the England U-21 team but has not been capped as yet.

Rob Nielsen played a total of 6 games for Bolton (1 goal via a penalty, 6.53 rating). Bolton finished 10th in the Premier League. He began to play better after his bad start and he has hopes of playing more regularly next year. He is with the US national team and is hoping for his first cap soon.

Daniel Ertmann spent a few months at Coventry (16 starts, 7 goals, 2 assists, 1 MOM, 1 yellow, 7.03 rating) before returning to Liverpool. Coventry only managed 11th place in League 1 though. He is with the England U-19 squad as well.

Jace Hunter is the Canadian U-20 team vice-captain (5 caps). He is still miserable at Barcelona even though he won the Spanish U-19 Group 2 with them. Good season for him, just 13 goals conceded in 32 games and 22 clean sheets (7.20 rating).

Julio O'Donnell had a good season overall, playing for both Doncaster (22 games, 2 assists, 5 MOMs, 6 yellows, 1 red, 7.59 rating) and Birmingham (13 games, 2 assists, 1 MOM, 7 yellows, 1 red, 6.92 rating). Birmingham finished 16th in the Premier League. Julio is an England U-21 international (4 caps) but he needs to work on staying on the pitch. That disciplinary record is .... atrocious to say the least.

Bernard Blaze also had a good season. With Coventry, he was unstoppable at times (30 games, 6 goals, 9 assists, 9 MOMs, 7.56 rating) and he also made his league debut for Man City late in the season (1 goal, MOM, 8.40 rating). Bright times ahead for Bernard Blaze it looks like. He added another young player of the month for League 1 and 1 more team of the week award for League 1. He was also named to the Premier League team of the week for his debut performance. Part of the England U-21 set-up but not capped yet.

Frank Justice had a pretty good season with Norwich (37 games, 5 goals, 6 assists, 2 yellows, 6.99 rating), helping the club to 14th place in the Championship. There are rumours that Watford are interested in signing him but that might not be a big step up (Watford was 8th in the Championship). Frank is called up to the England U-19 squad regularly but not capped yet.

Path Twelve's injuries resulted in a start-stop season for him. He managed 15 games for Norwich (1 goal, 1 assist, 2 yellows, 6.84 rating) and also came on as a sub for Sunderland in a cup game (6.40 rating) but he needs to work on not getting hurt so much. He has been compared to Rio Mavuba (a French international that currently plays for Man Utd in this game).

This is Ubaldo Geronimo's lost season. He played decently for the Chateroux reserve side (2 goals in 8 games, 1 assist, 1 MOM, 3 yellows, 6.90 rating) but that's not what he expected when he joined Napoli.

Will Brown had an ok season with a Wolves team that finished 7th in the league (8 games, 2 goals, 6.70 rating). What's exciting for him though is that there are rumours Real Madrid are interested in signing him.

Champions League
Chelsea beats Real Madrid 3-1 (Real Madrid fail to defend their cup)

Euro Cup
Tottenham beats Dynamo Kyiv 1-0

Summary:
In England, Arsenal defend their title but again fail to do the double by losing in the FA Cup final to Man Utd. A surprise 3rd placed finish by Everton, led by Djibril Cisse's goals. Disappointment of the year was probably a Man City team that failed to qualify for Europe and got whacked in the League Cup final. Chelsea won 2 cups, the League Cup and, more importantly, the Champions League. Tottenham also won the Euro Cup, making that a sweep of the European competitions and a marked change from last season when both losing finalists were from England. A case of London being better than Manchester?

Roma defended their title in Italy and Inter again come in 3rd. Juventus managed to win a trophy this year and will look to challenge again next season.

Normalcy is restored in Spain as Barcelona do the double. Real Madrid had a disappointing season as they came in 2nd in the league as well as the Champions League.

In France, Monaco are back at the top after a long absence. Lyon again come in 2nd although they did manage to win the French Cup as consolation.

The German league is all about parity as Wolfsburg take the title this year. Bayern finished 6th in the league, another disappointing year for them.

Euro Championship 2012 Round Up

The 2012 Euro Championship saw 16 European nations take part to claim the title of European Champions.

In the group stages, Croatia, Poland, Italy, England, France, Holland, Germany and Serbia qualified for the quarter-finals. The shock upset was Spain coming in 3rd in their group behind Germany and Serbia.

In the quarter-finals, England beat Croatia 2-1, Italy beat Poland 3-0, France beat Serbia 2-1 and Germany beat Holland 2-1, so no real upsets there.

In the semi-finals, England beat arch-rivals Germany 3-1 and Italy beat France 3-1, to set-up another match between two teams that had qualified from the same group.

Italy prevailed in the finals, 3-1, with goals from Giampaolo Pazzini (2) and Giorgio Chellini in the first half being enough. A consolation goal from Theo Walcott in the 2nd half was not enough. This was a deserved victory from Italy though as it had 17 shots on goal (7 on target) compared to England's 8 (4 on target). England had a slight edge in terms of possession (53-47) but were simply not incisive enough.

2012/2013 Start of Season Update

Dean Hoo remains a Blackburn player but the 19-year old is now considered an important first team player. He has played 3 games so far and scored 1 goal (6.83 rating) and is valued at 2.5 million pounds.

Marc Vaughan is still a Man City player but has been loaned out for the season to Fulham. However, there is an agreement in place that Fulham can acquire Marc if they pay 7 million pounds at the end of the loan. Valued at 2.5 million pounds.

Rob Nielsen is now a full-US international (2 caps, 1 goal). He is also regarded as an important first team player for Bolton and he will be looking forward to more playing time this year. Valued at 2.8 million pounds.

Daniel Ertmann has been loaned out to West Ham for the season, where he is slated to be a squad rotation player. Valued at 2.1 million pounds.

Jace Hunter did not re-sign with Barcelona and left on a free transfer. Sampdoria gleefully snapped him up and Jace is confident he will succeed in Italy. Valued at 725k, he is also a full Canadian international (3 caps).

Julio O'Donnell is happy playing at Birmingham, where he is regarded as an important first team player. The 2 million pound rated defender has played in 2 games so far (7.00 rating).

Bernard Blaze is listed for loan again at Man City and is being tutored by James Milner. He has made one cup appearance (1 assist, 8.20 rating) and believes that he could make a difference if given the chance. Valued at 2.4 million pounds.

Frank Justice is now viewed as an indispensable part of the Norwich team and his performances prove it (5 games, 2 goals, 1 assist, 7.38 rating). The 1.3 million pound rated teenager is enjoying his time at Carrow Road but the question is whether a move is on the cards in the future, especially if Norwich continues to play in the Championship.

Path Twelve has been sent back to Norwich on loan again and he will be hoping that he will not be struck down by injuries. 2 games so far for the Canaries (6.20 rating) and he will need to improve on that.

Ubaldo Geronimo is back at Napoli but, in an interesting twist, he is now co-owned by Roma. This will expire in 2014, which is when the clubs will have to decide who gets to buy him. He is in the reserves for now but is tearing it up (6 games, 7 goals, 7.96 rating).

Will Brown is going to be devastated that he broke his collarbone after a proising start to the season (4 games, 2 goals, 6.85 rating). He was already regarded as an important first team player but he will now have to rehab from this injury before re-starting his campaign.

3rd place: Wolfsburg
German Cup: Leverkusen beats Bayern 4-0

Champions League
Lyon beats Arsenal 1-0

Euro Cup
CSKA Moscow beats PSG 2-2 (5-3 on penalties)

Summary:
In England, Manchester United finally break Arsenal's 2-year reign as league champions behind the goals of Rooney and Hernandez. This was a year when the top 6 was roughly what you would expect, with Chelsea, Man City and Tottenham rounding up the 4th to 6th places. Stoke won the FA Cup, ending the run of Championship side Portsmouth. Chelsea also defended their League Cup with a routine win over Wigan in the final.

In Italy, Palermo also ended another 2-year reign at the top as Roma dropped to 3rd. Palermo's win was a very convincing one as they finished 10 points clear at the top! Inter's wait for a trophy ended when the took home the Italian Cup this year.

In Spain, it was Real Madrid's turn to win the title and Barcelona came in 3rd behind Atletico Madrid. Barcelona ended the season empty handed when they lost to Sevilla in the finals of the Spanish Cup.

Lyon finally won the Ligue 1 title after 2 frustrating years and did so in style ... 17 points clear of 2nd place St Etienne. They also won the Champions League title to wrap up a very satisfactory season for the French side. St Etienne did manage a French Cup victory over Nimes while Marseille won the League Cup.

Leverkusen won their 2nd title in 3 years in the Bundesliga, pipping Bayern by 1 point. It's been 3 years since Bayern appeared in the top 3 and they will look to regain their title next year. Leverkusen underscored their dominance this season with a crushing win over Bayern in the German cup as well.

Could there be a minor resurgence in Russian football? Second year in a row that a Russian team has reached the Euro Cup finals and this time CSKA Moscow won it. Having said that, this is also a year when French teams reached both finals so the same could be said for French football.

Achievements:

Summary:
The 20 year old has settled in well at Blackburn Rovers and is slowly becoming one of the regulars in the team. He is very fast and has good finishing ability but is held back by the fact that he finds it hard to last the full 90 mins. He isn't going to beat a keeper with screamers but he will be the typical fox in the box that can thrive in certain systems.

He is also a star for the England U-21 side, with 18 goals in 16 appearances.

Summary:
The England U-21 international (5 caps) has shown that he is capable of playing in the Premier League as he performed capably for Fulham ... though they did get relegated at the end of the year. He is a good passer of the ball, strong in the tackle and is able to run all day, pretty much the quintessential English midfielder. His biggest drawback is probably the fact he can't really mark opponents effectively for a defensive midfielder and is perhaps not aggressive or brave enough.

Summary:
Rob's club career hasn't really taken off yet although he has played reasonably in the few opportunities he has been granted (21 games, 6 goals). His technical and mental attributes haven't really developed much although he has developed in the physical aspect quite a bit. He is a good finisher that is fast but he can't do much else beyond that.

On an international level, he was capped by the US at age 19 and he has since earned 5 caps and scored 3 goals.

Summary:
Daniel's career kinda stalled this year when his loan spell at West Ham was a waste of time. He will have a career in football as evidenced by his performance in League 1 with Coventry, the only question is whether he will be able to play at the Premier League level. Daniel is another fast striker with good finishing ability and he just needs the opportunity to showcase his talents.

He is also an England U-21 international with 4 goals in 6 caps.

Summary:
It's not often that leaving Barcelona can be good for your career but that appears to be the case for Jace Hunter. He joined Sampdoria but was immediately loaned out to a Ligue 2 side for first team experience and he really shone there, helping them to promotion to Ligue 1. Jace will be looking forward to pushing for the No. 1 shirt in Sampdoria next season. He is a good shot-stopper and is brave and aggressive. He does have to work on some of the technical aspects of goalkeeping where he is just average but he is young still.

Jace has been capped 6 times for Canada.

Summary:
Another England U-21 international (13 caps), Julio is also part of the U-19 team that was runners-up in the Euro U-19 Championships. Julio has really stepped up this year and was a rock for Birmingham at the back and he thrills fans with the fact he is a ball-playing centreback rather than just hoofing it up. His drawback could be that he lacks real pace and so a fast striker can potentially expose him. Well, there's also his horrendous disciplinary record.

Summary:
Another England U-21 international (7 caps, 2 goals) that had a disappointing season. He failed to break into the Man City team and was also not sent out on loan and could only play in a few reserve games. Not conducive for his development.

Bernard has a lot of the traits you want in a winger .. he's fast, he's creative, he's great at crossing. Drawbacks are that his technique isn't good and he tends to drift in and out of games a lot, plus he gets pushed off the ball way too easily.

Summary:
Frank did make his move to a bigger club when Man Utd came in to sign him during the January transfer window. This was clearly a move for the future because they proceeded to dump him in the reserves for the rest of the campaign.

Frank is fantastic at attacking, with the ability to make the right decisions, pass the ball well and really see play develop in front of him. The drawback is that he will be a liability when it comes to defending but you can't always have it both ways. He is one of the few players not capped for his country at the youth level.

Summary:
There is a real suspicion that Path's career may not last long. He is a very physical player that some have accused of being dirty. This style of play has resulted in him being injured often (this season he missed 16 weeks with assorted injuries). Underneath all that physical play though, there is some evidence of a classy player as he has good technique and has shown real flair on occasion.

He has been capped once by the French U-21 team.

Ubaldo Geronimo, Striker

Napoli 1 appearance (1 as sub), 5.90 rating
2012-13: Napoli 0 appearances

Achievements:
Blue Square Premier champion

Summary:
It's hard to figure out where Ubaldo's career is headed at this point. He went from playing for Luton to Napoli, where he has promptly been left in the reserves and not played a competitive match for nearly 1.5 seasons. At the same time, he's ridiculously good in reserve games (32 goals in 38 appearances) and he appears to have been told he has a bright future ahead of him because he is enthusiastic of his future in Naples. He is fast, he is creative and he can finish .. a real South American striker.

He is part of the Mexico U-20 team (5 caps, 3 goals).

Achievements:

Summary:
Will Brown is another fast striker that can finish. Similar to his compatriot Rob Nielsen, he is very limited in other aspects though. However, Will did show that he can play football at a League 1 level as a minimum when he really impressed in a short loan stint at Southampton.

He has been called up to the US national team and he was a real star for the U-20s (14 goals in 8 appearances). There are rumours he may be leaving Wolves though because Aston Villa has indicated they want to purchase him and he is now unsettled and considering his options.

2013/14 Start of Season update

Dean Hoo is now valued at 5 million and remains at Blackburn. 3 starts in the league so far and 1 goal (6.47 rating). He has 22 goals in 18 caps for the England U-21s and won the European U-21 Championship. He scored the winning goal in the 2-1 final over France (Daniel Ertmann got the other).

Marc Vaughan (4 million) is another member of the England U-21 team that won the European U-21 Championship. He's part of the Man City reserves still and his push for first team recognition will be hampered by a hip injury that requires specialist treatment.

Rob Nielsen has started the season well for Bolton (2 games, 1 goal, 7.20 rating). The 3.9 million pound striker was part of the US team that came in 2nd in the North American Gold Cup ... where they lost 1-0 to Mexico. A little embarrassing for the striker, who had talked some trash in the US papers before the finals. He came on in the 72nd minute but was unable to make a difference.

Daniel Ertmann was the other goalscorer in England's win over France in the European U-21 Championship. Valued at 3.6 million pounds, he is listed for loan and in the Liverpool reserves but he isn't totally happy about that as he feels he is too good to go on loan.

Jace Hunter is at Sampdoria still but he is unhappy again about playing time and wants to leave. Sense a pattern building here. He is the 3rd choice keeper hence his unhappiness. He also played terribly in a cup game (conceded 3, 5.20 rating). Valued at 925k.

Julio O'Donnell is also part of the England team that won the European U-21 championship. He is happy at Birmingham and has been given the no. 4 shirt. Valued at 3.8 million.

Bernard Blaze is yet another member of the England team that won the European U-21 championship. Part of the Man City reserves but interested in going out on loan and rumours are that Blackburn might be interested. Valued at 2.9 million.

Path Twelve is on loan to Norwich yet again. The 1.5 million pound midfielder will hope for a good loan spell although his early performances have not been fantastic (3 appearances, 6.27 rating).

Ubaldo Geronimo is now fully owned by Napoli again when Napoli paid Roma 1.34 million for their 50% share. Valued at 1.6 million, Ubaldo has made 1 substitute appearance so far this year and created a goal (7.10 rating).

Will Brown made a 6.75 million pound move to Aston Villa where he has been given the no. 9 shirt. He has made 1 substitute appearance so far but no rating as it was for a few minutes only. He is also part of the US team that lost in the North American Gold Cup finals.

Euro Cup

Summary:
Arsenal regain their Premier League title this year and also the League Cup. It was the tightest race in years however as they only won the title on the last day on goal difference over Tottenham. Tottenham did manage to beat Napoli in the Euro Cup final though (their 2nd win in 3 years). Liverpool won the FA Cup but Daniel Ertmann did not feature in that game. Chelsea won their 2nd Champions League title in 3 years, which makes up for their 4th place finish in the league.

Inter finally wins the title after 4 years. Palermo slip to 3rd after last season's successful campaign. Catania was the Italian Cup winner and they also managed 4th place in the league.

Over in Spain, the revolving door at the top continues as Barcelona won the title as well as the Spanish Cup. They nearly made it a treble but lost to Chelsea in the Champions League final.

The title race in France was closer this year but Lyon defended their title successfully, just 1 point ahead of PSG. Jace Hunter's club last season (CS Sedan Ardennes) went straight back down to Ligue 2, coming in 19th out of 20 places. Lyon did a domestic double in France while Marseille defended their League Cup.

Leverkusen won their 3rd title in 4 years in the Bundesliga, this time by a convincing 11 points. Bayern did manage some revenge though by winning the German Cup but that is a minor consolation for a side used to winning major trophies.

2014/2015 End of Season Update

Dean Hoo has a decent season for Blackburn Rovers (8th in the Premier League), scoring 10 goals in 30 games (6.74 rating) to go with 7 yellow cards and 1 red card. The highlight of his season has to be the fact he was called up for England and got his first cap in a 2-1 win over the US (a match in which Will Brown scored for the US). However, all is not well as Dean wants to leave Blackburn because they have transfer-listed one of their best players, Steven N'Zonzi.

Marc Vaughan had a poor season with Man City because he couldn't get much first team football. He only made 2 substitute appearances (6.55 rating). However, he has also been called up to the England squad and got his first cap in the 2-1 win over the US. He also got a 3rd place medal in the U-20 World Cup.

Rob Nielsen had an average season for Bolton (19 games, 4 goals, 1 MOM, 6.44 rating), which narrowly avoided relegation (17th place). He is a regular in the US national team though (7 goals in 16 caps).

Daniel Ertmann made a big money move from Liverpool to Sporting in the Portugese league, where he scored 3 goals in 15 games (6.67 rating). He was part of the England U-20 team that came in 3rd but was also sent off in the 3rd place play-off in extra time. He is knocking on the England full team's door as he was called up recently but did not actually get any game time.

Jace Hunter is still at Sampdoria but is now co-owned by Roma. This has made him more optimistic about his future. The Canadian international (11 caps) played just 1 game for Sampdoria and conceded 3 goals (5.20 rating) but has played well for Canada this year (5 games, 4 conceded, 2 clean sheets, 7.46 rating).

Julio O'Donnell is Mr Birmingham. He was named as the Supporter's Player of the Year for 2012/13 and was outstanding at times this year (one Premier League Team of the Week award, Young Player of the Month for November). He made 26 appearances in all (3 assists, 4 MOMs, 7 yellow cards, 1 red card, 6.90 rating) and is a regular in the England U-21 team. He also won the 3rd place medal with England in the U-20 World Cup.

Bernard Blaze is another England starlet languishing in the Man City reserves. Just 1 game for the senior team (6.60 rating) but a bunch of appearances for the reserves. He is part of the England team that came in 3rd in the U-20 World Cup.

Frank Justice has taken well to the Premier League this year (18 games, 5 goals, 2 assists, 1 yellow, 7.24 rating) with Man Utd (7th). He is now part of the England U-21 set-up and also won the Community Shield with Man Utd. He is described as a wonderkid and the future is bright for him.

Path Twelve had a disappointing year with Norwich (19 games, 2 yellows, 6.47 rating). He simply hasn't been able to perform regularly and had a bit of a falling out with the Norwich management.

Ubaldo Geronimo is a star for the Mexico U-20 team (10 goals in 17 caps). However, his career is still floundering. He made one appearance for Napoli (1 assist, 7.10 rating) but was then sent out for loan at Kaiserslautern in January 2014 where he was not given much opportunity to play even though he did well whenever given the chance (3 games, 3 goals, 1 MOM, 7.30 rating, 1 Team of the Week award). It's just odd.

Will Brown enjoyed his move to Aston Villa, especially playing next to Gabby Agbonholar. The US international (8 caps, 2 goals) managed 8 goals in 20 appearances (2 yellows, 1 red, 6.81 rating) this season and will be looking forward to another good season next year.
