Damien Duff and James McFadden were selected to the EPL Team of the Week.

I'm also exploring acquiring several young talented players to bolster the potential of our youth and reserve squads.

The first round of the Euro Cup was drawn today, and we will be hosting Dnipro from the Ukraine. We will be playing them on Sep. 16, 2010.


On the eve of the transfer deadline, Sevilla's Craig King has agreed to the contract offer we made. He rejected an offer from FC Bayern.

Craig King is a 20 year old English striker who has 6 U21 goals. He has a great deal of potential, and is known as a very hard worker. He is currently valued at 15 million dollars and we acquired him for 20 million dollars. We feel he could be a potential superstar, and that his value is likely to appreciate. We don't need him this year, but when Ruud van Nistelrooy retire in a year or so, and Saha retires, he will become very important. I'm going to get him some first team football this year too.

Just curious,
Whats the Euro Cup Also, how do reserve teams work compare to loaning players out? One option better then the other? Can you control the reserve/youth teams and what teams do they play against?

Miguel Angel Ruiz Diaz's transfer to the club was cancelled as our application for a work permit was turned down.

Jorge Cobian's transfer from San Lorenzo was cancelled as his application for a work permit was turned down. Both were young talented players from South America who I thought might get WP's approved.


The board is still hopeful of a long and successful era with me at the helm.


Liverpool's Luis Garcia won the EPL Player of the Month. James McFadden came in 2nd! Gael Clichy of Liverpool came in 3rd.


Liverpool's Jordi has won the young player of the month. Chris Robson of Sunderland came in 2nd, and Craig Scott of Newcastle came in 3rd.


Fulham's Peter Taylor has won the EPL Manager of the month. Fernando Vazquez of Newcastle came in 2nd, and that darned Ciriaco Cano of Blackburn came in 3rd.


James McFadden won goal of the month for his long dribble down the length of the pitch past 5 Leicester players before he hit a well placed shot.

The Euro Cup is a prestigious tournament (not as prestigious as the European Championship Cup) that places various top teams from leagues throughout Europe against each other. Typically the top 4 EPL teams play in the European Championship Cup while the next 3 or so play in the Euro Cup. Since Manchester United finished out of the top 4, but in the next 3 in the EPL last year, this is the tournament they ended up in.

You can't schedule the main reserve/youth squad games, but you can arrange friendlies for them. If you are sending a player out to a good team, it is probably better to loan them out. However, if you are sending a player out to a team with poor training facilities or a poor staff, it is better to just keep them IMHO. My new young striker will not be loaned, unless it is to a top notch team in the European Championship. I'll get him plenty of PT on my reserve squad as well as some first team football.

Port Vale (14th in League One) has asked to loan our young right fullback, Daniel Rowland for 3 months. They have good facilities, and I think the experience will do him good, so I agree to their offer in which they will pay 100% of his salary while he is gone (600/week.)

My AM reports that 21 year old wonderkid Craig King played well for England in the Euro U21 Championship Qualifyer today. Craig scored a goal and created a goal in a 2-0 win! The best thing is that my AM called Craig a "wonderkid!" I didn't even realize that he had this description before I acquired him. His value has skyrocketed to 30 million dollars already

Jamie cook also played and did well in this match.

Multiple players were involved in international play today. All of the matches were European Championship Qualifying matches:

34 year old Ruud van Nistelrooy played as a substitute and did well in a 2-0 win Holland over Serbia & Mont.

33 year old Mikael Silvestre played well for France in a 1-0 win over Greece.

24 year old Worldclass striker Wayne Rooney played well but didn't excel in a 0-0 tie with Romania. Stewart Downing also started and played well without excelling.

Flamboyant forward James McFadden had a hattrick in an 8-1 win for Scotland over Azerbaijan. Darren Fletcher also played well in the match.

Daniel Rowland agreed to go to Port Vale on loan for 3 months.

Wayne Rooney is complaining that he isn't fit yet. As a result, I pull him out of my starting plans for next week and put Alan Smith in the slot.

Today we host Arsenal in a televised match. Wayne Rooney has told me that he is too tired to play in this game which is disappointing. Arsenal's very talented team is led by left winger Jose Antonio Reyes who is world class. Midfielder Patrick Vieira continues to play well despite his advancing age. Strikers Thierry Henry and Javier Saviola are the best pair of strikers we will ever face. Their two best defenders Joseph Yobo and Sonkaya Faith are both injured for this match. Left fullback Ashley Cole has had a slow start this year, but he has the talent to be dominating. Their keeper Manuel Almunia has won many awards and is tough to beat.

GK: Howard
DL: Silvestre
DC: Ferdinand
DC: Lucio
DR: Brown
ML: Downing
MC: Duff (experiment in which he will slide inside for our biggest games.)
MC: Fletcher (Djemba is away on international duty still.)
MR: Eagles
SC: McFadden
SC: Alan Smith (since Rooney is unhappy and states he is exhausted.)

S1: Barthez
S2: O'Shea
S3: Neville
s4: Cook
s5: King (the wonderkid may get some PT today.)


Arsenal's Lineup is as follows:

GK: Almunia
DL: Ashley Cole
DC: Philippe Senderos
DC: Frank Wolf
DR: Fabrice Plet
ML: Reyes
MC: Manuele Blasi
MC: Vieira
MR: Jermaine Pennant
SC: Henry
SC: Saviola

Today we host Dnipro in our first round Euro Cup match. Dnipro doesn't really have many quality players. Their best players are their keeper Igor Shevchuk who has played well this year. Timofei Kalachev has been a good midfielder. Olexandr Melnyk is a decent centreback. Roman Melnyk is a good striker.

We are heavy 2-5 favorites.

It's raining with temperatures in the mid 40's today.

DC: Ferdinand

MC: Djemba

11 minute mark: Eagles takes the corner kick.. sends it to the middle of the box.. Ferdinand jumps.. the centreback pushes him down.. Penalty shot awarded! Lucio steps up to take it, powerful strike into the upper right corner of the net (Lucio is my best penalty shooter!)

15 minutte mark: Fletcher intercepts it at midfield.. passes it to Djemba Djemba.. he passes to Eagles.. Eagles passes back Djemba-Djemba.. he shoots a banana shot from 25 yards out.. it curves into the upper right corner.. GOAL!!!! 2-0.

18 minute mark: Downing with a brilliant dribble down the left sideline.. crosses to Rooney in the box.. powerful shot on the half-volley.. the keeper saves it.

21 minute mark: Eagles passes to Rooney in the center of the box.. hard shot.. the keeper saves it.

40 minute mark: Fletcher passes to Rooney in the box.. he shoots.. powerful shot.. the keeper blocks it! The rebound sails out to Djemba.. he shoots from 25 yards out.. curving shot.. upper left corner of the net.. GOAL!!!! 3-0.

44 minute mark: Downing with a long cross to Eagles.. he passes it into the box.. Rooney with a close range shot.. and the keeper stops it again! Rooney is looking a little frustrated.


Halftime: 3-0 lead. I thought we'd be winning by a larger margin, and I was hoping Rooney would have a few goals so I could rest him soon. I'll rest him no matter what at the 60 minute mark, despite us not having a game for 10 more days. We have over 62,000 fans here today.


47 minute mark: Brilliant dribble by Downing past three defenders.. he finally crosses to Djemba in the box.. Djemba blasts it.. over the bar.. just misses his hattrick.

60 minute mark: I put Ruud van Nistelrooy on for Smith, and King on for Rooney. I also put Cook on for Fletcher.

81 minute mark: A boring second half is finally more exciting as Djemba Djemba passes to Jamie Cook who hits a half volley from 25 yards out that sails into the upper left corner of the net! GOAL!!!! 4-0. That is Cook's first goal for Manchester United.



Game over. 4-0 win.

We outshot them 20-1 (14-1 on target)

Eric Djemba-Djemba won MoM, 10 for form, 29 of 33 passes, 0 tackles, 2 of 7 headers, 2 runs, 1 assist, and 2 goals.

Downing also had a 10 for form. Eagles had a 9 for form. The rest of the team had 8's except for Rooney who only had a 7.

Well my name was linked as a possible manager to take over Man City. I wasn't a favorite but still being named is pretty cool. Too bad I have Man Utd as my favoured clubs.

I'm sure you'll get one of the big jobs soon. As for me, with our slow start, I'm afraid I might not last at Manchester United for long. If I survive this season, and we don't come close to winning the title this year, I'll probably switch to a 3-5-2 next year (a very similar one to what I ran last year at Wigan.)

Boy you were right. Just a couple weeks after not being chosen for the Man City job, the US National Team comes up and offers it to me. Wow.

It requires good holding midfielders to maintain possession, otherwise you run the risk of getting shredded down the wings. If you can't control the ball, then you will lose, generally.

i just wanted to add as i run a 3-5-2

getting 4 decent fullbacks can be a hard job, and if they have arrows and can contribute offensively they may need to get some games off.

You don't want to have a couple guys in your back line that your not comfertable with playing against Giggs, C Rondaldo, Robben, Duff, Downing, Shaun Wright-Philips as they will create chances at will (those guys will create chances vs just about anyone)

He might not have been tagged that prior to the transfer. Going to a club like Manchester United does wonder for your reputation. [I belief reputation plays a fairly significant part in the "Wonderkid" tag, along with ability and potential.]

Sorry but, uhhh, I cheered that a little bit. But just a little, though.

Ahhhhh, the wonders of Ash and JAR. Wonder where they'll be plying their trade next season.

So true. I think it is easier to find a good number of good midfielders, then it is to find a decent number of good fullbacks. Then again, that might be just me? In any case, I've had success with the 3-5-2 with a few different clubs, including Manchester Utd in my CM 03/04 game. However, right now I definitely don't have the personel to run it. I need at least 3 more very good midfielders which I'm hoping to acquire in the upcoming offseason. For now, we are married to the 4-4-2 or a variant for better or for worse.

Ahhh, that makes sense I hope he lives up to that "Wonderkid" tag

It's ok. I would cheer the Eagles if you did an FOF dynasty in which they beat your team Hopefully, the Arsenal loss doesn't contribute towards me getting fired

I don't know enough about Milan or the Italian teams to comment on what those teams use IRL. Hopefully, someone else can answer this question.

Here's a bit of a story about AC Milan. Italian teams have been accused many times of playing catenaccio, or scoring one goal and then playing extremely negatively and trying to "kill" the clock.

Ancelotti, a likeable man from the Northern Italian countryside, tends to favour 4-4-2 but with a midfield diamond as opposed to two wide men and two operating centrally.

Today we travel to play Wigan! This match will be televised. We are currently in 11th place but we have played two less games than most of the top teams and we are only 8 points out of 1st despite that team playing two more games. Wigan is currently in 17th despite having played one more game than us. Their current record is 1 win 1 draw, and 5 losses. They are doing the intersting thing of playing Frode Mansare (the guy I acquired to play left wing) at striker! They are starting Wellington Paulista alongside him. Fode Mansare is the team's leading scorer with 4 goals in 8 games. Benayoun has 1 goal from his AMC spot. Wall and Osorio continue to play well. They have gone to a 4-3-1-2 and Rolfes has been a key player in the midfield.

We are heavy 4-7 favorites.

It's sunny with temperatures in the high 50's.

Rooney is still very tired from his match 2 days ago. It seems the previous manager might have overused him and he is frequently tired. I'm going to have to be careful about how I use him.

I'm sure the World Cup also left him more tired than usual.

That actually, technically, sounds like a 5-3-2 with two wingbacks. If I understand what you're describing correctly.

The wonderkid tag comes soley from ability and potential. I believe you need at least a 160 in ability and 180 in potential. It's possible the guy could have been right on the edge and "popped."

Thanks for the clarification on the wonderkid tag.. hopefully he plays well in his first start in the Euro Cup today

The Manchester Board is still hopeful of a long and successful run with me at the helm.


Arsenal's Jose Antonio Reyes has won the EPL Player of the Month award. Tim Borowski of Manchester City came in 2nd, and Sanli Tuncay of Chelsea came in 3rd.


Liverpool's Jordi has won the EPL Young Player of the Month. John Yates of Middlesbrough came in 2nd, and Alan Thomas of Tottenham came in 3rd.


Arsenal's Arsene Wenger won Manager of the Month as he led the team to three victories in four of their least league games. Tony Colbert of Liverpool came in 2nd, and Richard Money of Manchester City came in 3rd.


James McFadden won the goal of the month for his impressive goal against Wigan on September 26 in which he ran around an opponent and scored on a powerful curling shot.


Bruce Arena, coach of Aston Villa, has told Skysports.com that he doesn't think my side is good enough to end the season as champions. Arena did concede that, given a few quality signings, Manchester United might be a contender next season.

I reply by telling Soccernet.com that "I am very confident our team has the ability to go all the way."

Watching the players has caused me to make a slight tweak to our basic tactics, but I will be continuing to run the 4-4-2.

I've gotten about a half dozen agents approaching me with videos of their clients, but this is the first one that intrigues me. Dalibor Stevanovic is currently playing for Bradford City in League One, but he is being very dominant at that level. He looks like he might be able to play quite nicely as a rotator here. I don't plan on him being a long term solution, but he is only valued at a million dollars. I'm going to make an offer of 1.05 million for him as it meets his release clause.

An agent for David Vaughan has also approached me. He is currently playing for Preston and looks quite good both in practice according to my agents and in this video tape. I've ignored most of these pleas to come join us, but he would fit nicely in our midfield. He is currently valued at 2 million dollars.

Palace was relegated on the last day of the season.

There were only 2 or 3 out of dozens possible scenarios where we got relegated, but the disastrous happened!

Ah, well, I've got AJ and Routledge, though both are starting to do a little chirping.

Hope you can continue to string together a few wins! I'm sure a run to the semis or finals of the UEFA Cup would do a lot towards keeping your job!

Today we host Aston Villa in a televised game. Aston Villa has an explosive scorer in Luke Moore. He is only 24, but he is quickly becoming one of the top strikers in the game. He already has 6 goals in 7 EPL league games. His partner Robbie Keane is also quite good. Their defensive line is quite good with centrebacks Liam Ridgewell and Olof Mellberg leading the way. Their keeper Leo Franco is a top notch keeper. Their midfield has been average this year with right winger Salomon Kalou being the most consistent this year.

We are even odd favorites.

It's raining with temperatures in the mid 50's.
