Happy hump day! Here’s Dan with more from Germany – and a CM legend is on the way!
I’ve only been chasing him for five years!
I have the chance to sign Ronaldo on a free transfer. But guess what? My board won’t let me offer more than £8k per week so he politely declines.
I sign Lothar Matthaus’ regen.
We win the Liga-Cup. Sorry for my harsh words all those years ago!
My reputation is growing. I’m ahead of Van Gaal and Capello. I’ll take that.
McCarthy starts the season on fire, with seven in four. Ronaldo who?
The Ronaldo deal is back on, potentially. We get his agent back in the room and he only wants £35k a week. My board loosen the purse strings up to £17k a week. He ends up joining Parma.
We beat Bayern to make it nine points from nine. What a great start to the season!
We rest five players but still have too much for our non-league visitors.
Another UEFA Cup campaign begins.
Wow, Benni, take a bow son! (Let’s not talk about the defending.)
We’re 2-0 down on the road and Benni strikes again to give us the win!
A 2-2 draw in the second leg of the UEFA Cup in Turkey puts us through to the next round where we’ll face Rangers, who won the Champions League as recently as 2001.
After five years of great performances, Wes Brown makes his England debut, which is great news for him. However, he’s been unhappy in Germany for a while, and just 18 months remain on his contract.
A strange game, with four goals in the last eight minutes.
On the home front, we reach the summit.
Can we sustain our double assault on the league and UEFA Cup?
