Champions League Manager 97/98 – Match Week 16 | @NTR9798

Hello! and welcome to the penultimate episode of CLM! We may be nearing the end of the season, but it’s still all to play for. Philip still tops the table, but can he hold onto his five-point advantage? and will Zak and his Marseille side of ‘93 make it past Atletico Madrid to the UEFA Cup final?…

CD Dons – Episode 5: The Little Sh*t | @Emsonite

Happy Deano day! The CD Dons are looking for goals and reds, in no particular order. If you missed the previous episode click here

Recap of Rules & Objectives

  • Vinny Jones captain.
  • Only players with Aggression 18+ allowed
  • Hurt the opposition; fan prizes for sending offs, opposition injuries and total disciplinary points.
  • Thug-o-Meter; every CD Dons game is won, drawn, or lost on injuries and cards (5 for a red, 3 for an injury, 1 for a yellow). +3 pts for a win, -1 for a draw, -3 for a loss. At the end of the season, I need to be in positive points, or I’ll get the sack.
  • Spanish FA really don’t want us to get promoted or to win anything, pfft.

AFC United – Part 24: Soon may the Wellens man come | @Matt_C_Wills

Good morning and happy Monday. Matt’s got trophies on his mind this week as the season clatters to an end…

You join me on this fine Monday morning with AFC United on the brink of football immortality. This band of Alex Ferguson Cast Offs are challenging on four fronts. What stands between us and the ultimate glory? Judging from last week, only Aston Villa….every time.

We’re 3pts clear of Man United in the league, but our action picks up in the knock out stages of the Champions League, away to Intern Milan in the quarter finals.

It’s a great advantage to take back home. Our centre-back pairing of Duncan and Hall keeping Ronaldo quiet, but letting Maurice give Inter some hope

The Unexpected Champions – Part 5 | @Verbist_Philip

Hallo allemaal!

Let’s get your weekend started with the mid-season update of our second season with the Unexpected 96-97 Champions Lierse.

Last week we started great, but after that we suffered from a serious dip in our form. Trying to fit in a Russian winger seemed more difficult than I initially thought. Or is it because everybody still loves Raimond? That makes me the odd one out as I put him on the bench for the Bodart regen.

We resume the action in the CL. After 2 defeats against Juve and Milan, we are looking for our first points and money against the Grass Hoppers from Zurich. A win would have been ideal, but we have to settle for a point. We fail to score a 2nd goal and as it always goes they equalise at the end of the game.

The Blog Squad FC – Part 5 | @RossBell1984

Happy hump day! Here’s Ross and the Blog Squad and the start of season two.

Here we go again, after last season’s success let’s have a blast at division 2 then shall we.

As you can see from that starting line up the only OG Blog squaders remaining are Barry Combe, Andrew Chapman, Nick Rowe, Rob Tait, Zak Brockman and Dave Black. If we can make it to the end of this season with all of them still in the squad we will have done well i think.

You can also see the big name additions I persuaded to join us in the shape of Illie Dumitrescu, Hristo Stoitchkov and David Howells….. Plenty of firepower to see us out of Div 2, 3-0 away at Grimsby to start the season will do very nicely
