Welcome back, a bit of a wait since the last post but Last of Us:Part Two has distracted me! As you can see from the title We have some catching up to do.
13 points from a possible 15 and a magical 1-0 1st leg win against Real Madrid in CL
7 from 9 in the league, Real Madrid beat us 3-2 but a late 97th minute Joacy goal saw us progress on Away goals.
Through in the Fa Cup vs Liverpool, before losing to Everton on Pens.
9 from 15 in the league, A 4-2 agg win vs Lyon saw us progress through to the CL Semis in which we beat Atletico 4-0 in the first Leg at home.
Atletico pulled it back to 4-4!! before a late Valdson hat trick saw us through to the CL final!!
4 points from 6 to finish the league season before……..
Champions League Final
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE WINNERS!!!! The game was nail biting end to end but we finally won on pens!!
5th place finish but CL qualification due to being Winners
Bezerra was brillant, Valdson was amazing
Bolton fans love me!
5th trophy (I assume two playoff trophies don’t count then)
Nice to be acknowledged!!
Homegrown RB Ben-Ami moved on for £39m, he was a solid cover option but £39m was too good to turn down. Garitano my back up LB had 12 months left on his deal so I happily accepted £26m for him.
Jamie left for £59m due to the rise of Valdson his game time was dropping
Marlon will be the long term successor at RB but he will cover both RB and LB following the departures of Ben-Ami and Garitano.
I felt like we needed to improve one area mainly and that was LM, Manoel was highly rated by the scouts and my DOF happily spent £107m on him!
A long term replacement in center midfield he goes back to Benfica on Loan
A long term replacement striker he also goes back to Benfica on Loan
Overall a great season, and we’ve gone out and strengthened for our long term future too.
So chuffed with a Champions League win. that will go nicely with FA Cup, Super Cup and Europa League, we now need to win the League Cup, Premier League and Club World Cup to complete the lot.
