The True Football Manager

The True Football Manager

Leeds and Nothern Ireland

Posted: 26 Apr 2010 10:35 PM PDT

Try to guess why the post is called so Happy The answer will be in the end. And now - the first season #5 report.

First matches

Leeds matches in season #5, Football Manager 2010

I would like to strike out losses to Wigan, Sheffield United and especially 1:5 to Arsenal. Then I would call the start of the new season absolutely successful. Nevertheless we had excellent victories and perceptibly better performance in this season. Seems like last transfers moved the club to the next level.

The most impressive win was the one against Tottenham. It was at first when my Leeds won away game against The Hotspurs.

So these starting fixtures resulted in the following Premier League table standing:

Premier League table in season #5

Quite good, ye? 19th position of Liverpool and starting spurt of Portsmouth are the main surprises currently.

Another thing I'm happy with – efficient performance in League Cup matches. A quarterfinal will knock together Leeds and Aston Villa Happy 


Leeds players

Leeds players in season #5, Football Manager 2010 

Worst players in season #5 , Football Manager 2010

Andre-Pierre Gignac has produced fantastic start in Premier League! Applause 12 goals in 11(1) matches – it really impresses. I started to love this forward because as for me he can do everything in a pitch using both legs: dribble, make a smart pass and score goals with high level composure!

Another new Leeds forward Marquihnos began the season high-classy as well. Not so many goals were scored but he looks even more smart than Gignac if we talk about pitch vision. Marquinhos possesses brilliant speed and dribbling that will allow him to become a new Shevchenko Happy By the way this new leading pair of forwards resembles me amazing Dinamo Kyiv pair in 1998-99 – Shevchenko-Rebrov.

Here what my board thinks of these new forwards:

Andre-Pierre Gignac, board confidence, FM 2010 

Marquihnos, board confidence, FM 2010

Interesting news from Seria A

Meantime Lazio sacked Colomba in Seria A…

Lazio sacked Colomba in Seria A

They said players had lost confidence in Franco Colomba. The reason is obvious and stunning at the same time – look at the Roman club position in the league:

Shocking last position of Lazio, Football Manager 2010


Northern Ireland

At last I will explain you the post name. Well nothing special actually. I've just become the new national coach of Northern Ireland team. I resigned from Bosnia and Herzegovina and decided to wait for the team that has good central defenders. Northern Ireland can boast two very strong and competitive guys – Craig Cathcart and Johnny Evans. Sure I understand that most other positions are weaker than similar Bosnian ones… But it's even more challenging I think. Now it's time to start dreaming to get to Euro-2016 Happy
