Hull. First half of season #7

I am trying to do my best to finish my last season in Football Manager 2009. And this is the latest report about it. Actually about the first half of the season.

Matches

Here are Hull matches of season #7 in 2014:

Manchester United looses Community Shield

Mad 3:4 match with Manchester City

I want you to pay attention to the Community Shield Final against Manchester United. That was really great victory – 4:1!

The next important thing you may notice in the screenshots is poor start of Hull in Premier League. We managed to loose 3 away matches of starting 5… It decreased my chances of winning title perceptibly.

 

Tournament Tables

Man Utd, Man City, Arsenal gap

You see there is a gap between Man Utd, Man City, Arsenal and my Hull. But I hope to shorten the distance because in the second half of the season I will play only home matches with these rivals.

Meantime I got quite complicated group in the Champions League having Inter, Lyon and Celtic as opponents.

Hull, Inter, Celtic, Lyon

But excellent 3 wins and 3 tough draws (the one with Inter was really tough) provided the first position in this group. Now Bayern Munich waits for Hull in the next round!

 

Players sold during winter transfer window

Samuel Eto'o and Ben Foster are not needed anymore

All 5 players were sold because they had been unhappy with their second roles in the team.  33-years old Eto’o didn’t impress me at all.

 

Player stats

Some Hull player statistics:

Hull player stats

Best players of the season #7 first half are:

1. Darwin Suarez – the man who makes goals in my team either scoring or assisting!

2. Diego Buonanotte – the best assister, Hull leader.

3. Javi Garcia – brilliant debut from former Inter DMC! His long shots are amazing!

4. Fabian Monzon – the most confident and reliable defender in my club. Heavy transfer money paid for itself.

5. Milovan Rakic – sometimes he scores wonderful one touch goals from any position on a pitch.

Praising Fabian Monzon I can add the following picture:

Monzon was selected in the World Team of the Year

 

PS This is my last weekend with Football Manager 2009. I will start investigating FM 2010 demo on the next Saturday!
