Let's bring back glory to Valencia CF!

First things first, with the transfer activity...

Here are the required players for the team challenge:

Spanish GK (Canizares)

5ad5821c4bd3d_paulopez.thumb.jpg.f3a7e4585842ec6db425f6d1f0c9560d.jpg

Looks like a very promising goalkeeper in the near future. Perfect for this 3 season challenge. 

Argentinian CB (Pellegrino/Ayala)

mammana.thumb.jpg.75acbc4a22f1d7f4aa73a976d68c29fa.jpg

Another young talented defender for our lineup. Should be a beast with the proper training and guidance!

Argentinian Attacking Midfielder (Aimar/Kily González)

acuna.thumb.jpg.916416b92bafec1075125d491b380be4.jpg

The best player brought into this already strong squad! Very good abilities to bomb down the left wing!

Spanish Striker (Juan Sánchez)

rodrigo.thumb.jpg.30e17d5bc980d0ec432aba74ff9dcf1d.jpg

Our very own Rodrigo! The main man himself! Hope he puts in the kind of performance to lead this team to ultimate glory!

 

Well, that's all for this opening post. Thanks for reading and stay tuned for the updates!

Nice to see someone go for this one straight away. Seems like some solid choices.

I used Pau Lopez last year and he turned into a World Class keeper so hope her performs well for you. Good luck.

SEASON 1

So with all the required players in the squad, we get into the first season!

THE 4 PLAYERS:

Pau Lopez:

5ad5cacfdca4f_paulopez.thumb.jpg.208e2556bf3f90fd1ef11968d3450784.jpg5ad5caccc6719_paulopezapp.thumb.jpg.d3d16896f8c649ff1bd63a765ab8bfbf.jpg

Quite good for me at the back. Probably have to improve the defence in the next season! Shaping up to be quite a solid goalkeeper!

Mammana:

Only getting better with each game! Hope he improves more as time goes.

Acuna:

Now that's a star player right there! Very crucial player for the team. 16 goals and 21 assists! Let's see if he can outdo his performance next season!

Rodrigo:

Almost a goal a game for this one. Very consistent and I want him to score more next season as we got more games in hand!

So this is how they have developed as a player in the end of the first season. Here's how the other competitions went down...

LA LIGA:

League Table:

Very good performances from the team! We get our place in the Champions League next season. More opportunities for us to collect more points for this challenge!

Key Highlights:

Absolutely smashed Madrid in this home game! Rodrigo netting a hat trick!

Another very good game. This time on an away game!

Very happy with the team for their comeback in this one! 2 goals in the last 5 mins of the game by Rodrigo puts us level!

Disappointing game at home. Fortunate goal at stoppage time!

Semi-final Second Leg:

We claimed the POTY, MOTY and YPOTY this first season!

Surprised Acuna didn't manage to be in the team of the season! Soler been very good for me though!

So with all that, we end the very first season of this challenge!

We managed to win - 

La Liga: 50 points

Spanish Cup: 25 points

A total of 75 points for Season 1.

2 more seasons to go and collect more points for the challenge!

Thanks for reading and hope you guys enjoyed the content.

Acuna:
