    This is my first story so please don't kill me!! Any feedback is much appreciated, as long as it is productive!!

    This story is about my save with Italian giants AC Milan, a team that is considered by many as a team in transition, hence the name. The challenge is simple, make AC Milan the force they were during the days of Kaka, Maldini and Inzaghi. I have 5 years to do this. There is a checklist in this challenge which I will leave in this post;

    Challenge Finished??
    Win Serie A twice 1.
    2.
    Win Champions League once
    Have 5 Italian Internationals* 1. Stephan El Shaarawy
    2.
    3.
    4.
    5.

    * Players must be uncapped existing players, uncapped new signings, uncapped existing youth team players or uncapped new regens.

    AUGUST TO JANUARY

    SERIE A


    In Transition - An AC Milan Story-serie-feb-1st.pngIn Transition - An AC Milan Story-fixtures-16th-dec.pngIn Transition - An AC Milan Story-fixtures-26th-jan.png
    The league has been very mixed so far, with not much consistency, which has annoyed the board and my job security status has been changing week-by-week. We have played well at times, but unfortunately we have not been consistent enough and lie outside the Champions League places and am barely in the Europa League place. The best result so far has to be the 3-0 win against Inter, which the fans loved me for. The dominance in this game was surprising, and it contributed to the sacking of the Inter manager, with Martin Jol taking over. The worst game by far was the 5-0 reverse at Chievo. I was seriously concerned for my job after this game, as we were so outclassed by such an average team. In fairness they have been overachieving this year and lie in 2nd Place.
    Media Prediction: 3rd, Currently: 6th.


    COPPA ITALIA

    Unfortunately, the cup run was so short that there was no point in putting up a screenshot of it. We were beaten 3-2 in the 1st Round (last 32) by Varese of Serie B. We were 3-0 down at half-time and to be honest I was fearing the worst. We got it back to 3-2 with 10 minutes to go, and we missed a penalty with 5 minutes to go, which saw us go out of the competition at the first hurdle.
    Media Prediction: Semi Final, Finished: Last 32

    CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

    The Champions League has been my saving grace so far, as we have played very well in this competition. I knew that it would be a disaster if we did not get out of this group, with Paris Saint-Germain the only competition. We played well but did not score that much, but enough to keep up with PSG. The win over them was our best performance of the whole season, my team were faultless!! The draw for the next round gave me something that I had never done before, to play against my beloved Arsenal. I'll be honest, it is one of the better draws, but will still be very difficult.
    Media Prediction: Quarter-Finals, Currently: First Knockout Round

    TRANSFERS

    In Transition - An AC Milan Story-mid-way-transfers.png
    No player that I have signed has really set the world alight so far, besides Razvan Rat, who is playing really well for me. I have just signed Semih Senturk, so it will be interesting to see how he gets on, while Ari has gone back to Spartak Moscow, because quite simply, he was rubbish. Going out was mostly loans, expect for Emmanuelson on a co-ownership deal (can someone explain???) and Mario Yepes, who was past his peak.

    That's all for now everyone. In the next review will be a round up of February, which will include the first leg of the Champions League 1st Knockout Round, and news on an interesting signing, who will arrive in the summer. See ye soon guys!!

    FEBRUARY ROUND-UP

    OTHER NEWS

    In Transition - An AC Milan Story-kucher-jersey.png
    AC Milan sign Olexandr Kucher on loan from Shaktar Donetsk.


    AC Milan have signed Kucher, a centre-half, on loan until the end of the season. This signing is due to the injury to Sebastien Squillaci, who has returned to Arsenal after being ruled out for the rest of the season. He will wear the number 24 shirt, vacated by Squillaci.

    TABLE (TOP 10)

    In Transition - An AC Milan Story-serie-feb27th.png
    The league has been very good for us this month, as we have turned most draws into wins. The game against Lazio was very pleasing because we dominated and my two new signings scored on their debuts. The trashing of Siena was a superb win, as we haven't scored that many goals in a game for a long time. The only disappointment of the month was the draw with Torino, as we led until the last 10 minutes when we were pegged back. The final game of the month was the most dramatic, as we scored twice in the last five minutes to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.


    CHAMPIONS LEAGUE NEWS

    1ST KNOCKOUT ROUND 1ST LEG
    Arsenal 3-0 AC Milan
    (-)
    The first leg of the 1st knockout round was very disappointing as we were completely outclassed by what has to be called an average team. In hindsight, I probably would have signed players that were available for Europe, as Kucher, Semih Senturk and Toure were all ineligible. However, the team were very disappointing, and it will be an uphill battle to make to the quarter-finals.


    PLAYER OF THE MONTH

    Stephan El Shaarawy

    In Transition - An AC Milan Story-stephan-el-shaarawy-pic.jpg

    Apps - 5, Goals - 3, Average Rating - 7.76
    El Shaarawy has been a revelation this month, and has popped up with a few goals, which is always pleasing. He was the only player to get a 7 or above rating in every game. Other notable performance came from Robinho and Olexandr Kucher.

    That's all for now everyone. The next post will be for the month of March, as we play very important Serie A fixtures, as well as the 2nd leg of the Champions League 1st Knockout Round against Arsenal. See ye then!!

    This means that you have sold half of the rights to the player, and he will remain at that club for as long as the co-ownership contract has been set. Then, at the end of that contract, both owning parties must bid for the player, where the highest bid wins the full rights to that player and pays the other club.

    I quite like it as a feature as you can make money this way, and it takes away the risk of selling a potential superstar as you can get them back quite easily. I found that in older versions, the CPU controlled teams often bidded nothing or very little at the end of the contract. It can be frustrating when you want to buy a co-owned player though, when one side isn't interested in selling or wants double the amount of the other team!

    Thanks mate, he wasn't in my first team plans so it seemed like a good deal at the time. The other club is Juventus so it will be interesting to see if they decide to bid. I will be talking about my money problems in the next update, which may prevent me from signing him.
