Half way through my second season I sit 2nd a massive 11 points behind Bayern Munich. A terrible away record taking me out of contention for the title losing 5 and drawing 4 from 11 games. Making it difficult to compete with a side who have only lost twice, though one of those defeats was against me.
I thought I would give you a little update on my game before giving you more information later through the week.
I have solved my goalkeeping problem with a inspired bosman signing of David Ospina.
For a bosman signing he would make a great backup keeper, but short term he is also good enough for the first team replacing an ageing Weidenfeller who for the past two season has picked up long term injuries causing me to play Hildebrand who capable does cost me the odd goal. In the long term I want to bring in Marc-Andre ter Stegen from Gladbach.
With Kagawa leaving himself on a bosman it will be handy to be able to use my transfer budget to replace him.
My other signing has been a young midfielder from Inter Milan
High determination gives me promise that I can mould him into a useful rotation player he will sit nicely in a deep lying playmaker role. Ready made for a loan move in his first season or if I wish giving him a few games in my own first team he will look good.
To end this post I want to share you with you my 6-0 thrashing of Hertha Berlin. My terrible away record has come against some sides I really should have taken apart. The second game of the season I faced Hertha in Berlin, it was a fairly close game that I should never have lost, but Rukavystya’s goal sunk me.
But checkout the return leg were revenge was mine, playing my attacking 4-2-3-1 this has been the game were everything came together. Gotze was man of the match and check out the way he exploits the space that he found.
