After very long time, almost two months, I had some time to play #FM15. In previous last season my Spartans FC won the Scottish Premier League without losing a single point. And now I can say that we repeated it again. The same success, 38 league matches = 38 wins. And yes, we won all matches in Scottish Cup and Scottish League Cup as well.
We brought only four new faces to the team this summer. Talented yound defender David Calder & belgian international goalkeeper Andreas Leys & Croatia national team member Mladen Vidas from Hajduk Split & defender Esteban Gentile on loan from AC Milan.
Our best defender, Italian Davide Salvi was sold to Sheffield United for a fee around 6M £. And there were a lot of players went on loan.
Scottish League Cup
Four games, eight goals scored and only one conceded – the key statistics about our participation in Scottish League Cup this season. We were in final with Celtic again, same as in previous seasons. We won 2-0 thanks to goals by Esteban Gentile and John Smith.
Scottish FA Cup
No goals conceded during FA Cup campaign this year. We were able to beat Stirling, Morton, Partick Thistle, Dundee United and Celtic in the final. They are not very happy …
We have been drawn in Group B for this year along with AS Monaco, BVB Dortmund and Southampton. Very, very strong group. We tied 1-1 in Monaco in the first match but we won rest matches in the group with these results: 3-2 with Southampton at home, 3-0 vs. Dortmund (home) and 2-0 vs. Dortmund (away), 3-1 vs. Monaco (home) and 2-0 vs. Southampton (away).
We won the Group stage with 16 poinst. Five points ahead of Monaco and ten points ahead of Dortmund. Southampton had only one point thanks to one draw.
Our opponent in the 1st Knockout stage was Valencia. The first match in Spain ended with a 2-2 draw, Smith and Crawford scored for us. We beat Valencia 2-0 in the second leg thanks to a own goal by Mario and goal by Toby Macneil.
We were throught to the Qtr Final where we met Atlético Madrid. We beat them 2-1 in the first leg and lost 3-4 in the 2nd leg. Thanks to three goals in the second match we were through thanks to a away goals rule. Semi Final, here we come!
