2050/51 End of Season Review
This season we were chasing a record, a huge record. The most Premier League wins ever. Both us and Manchester United are tied on twenty-four wins apiece. Win the title this season, and we take the record…
Premier League (
So this was the big one. Win this and we break Manchester United’s record. And win it we did! From beginning to end, we led comfortably. We won the league with seven games to spare, losing only once, and then only once the league was wrapped up. I do regret losing that game, as if we’d have won, Southampton would have finished second! But we needed to rest players for the Champions League. C’est la vie.
Champions League (stats)
We started slowly in the Champions League this season, with Udinese picking up a point at our ground, and also losing two points away in Eindhoven. We still qualified comfortably though. We faced surprise package Granada in the KO round, but it was a pretty uneventful match up, as we won 6-2 on aggregate. We drew United out of the hat again for the quarter final, though this time we made sure we got the job done much more comfortably. The semi and the final draws were also the same as last season, and again we beat them all to pick up a fifth consecutive Champions League trophy.
FA Cup (stats)
We had a pretty straightforward run to the final, and we destroyed Manchester United in the final, a total humiliation!

What a player.
Ken Beckham was as dependable as ever, though this will probably be his last season at the club as we have many promising AMC’s that need game time.
IN: Guido Arts is a player who I feel will make a good ball-playing CB once re-trained, and Florian Guichard looks to have amazing potential, rated at 5* – and considering my current AMC’s, that’s saying something.
OUT: It was quite a difficult choice to sell Horton, but £46.5m for a 29 year old injury prone player was just too good to refuse. Kay has been a dependable left-back for many seasons but his age was beginning to show, so I was happy to take £10m for him. Powell and Harrison are YP’s that were never good enough to play for us and spent all their time on loan or in the reserves, and I decided to get a fee now rather than let them go for nothing at the end of the season. Francis looked like he might have a promising career at ETFC, but he hit his potential, and his potential wasn’t enough to hold down a regular spot, so when teams started making bids, I accepted the highest. He should fit in well at Tottenham.
One in, and what a player! 5* PA, Driven, determined and very good attributes in all the right areas! (And a very rugged beard for a 15 year old!)
