    So with IFK losing to Elfsborg, we have won the title! A great achievement!
    Once again the game thinks I’ve won the Champions League rather than the league previously.

    Next up are our arch rivals Helsingborg. After two underwhelming seasons, they’ve finally had a good one this year, which I’m very pleased about. It’s always better when your rivals are your toughest opponents. They also won the last match between us, which was last season. I only noticed once I’d already submitted the lineups that Thauvin’s condition was only 83%!


    In the 14th minute Bengtsson put a free kick in, but Milosevic’s volley was straight at the keeper.

    In the 18th minute Díaz passed to Petkovic just inside the box, who nutmegged his man beautifully and powered the ball into the top right corner!

    I was punished for my oversight on Thauvin’s condition when he picked up a knock, and I didn’t want to risk him further, so he was replaced by Forsberg in the 45th minute.

    In stoppage time, Bengtsson put in a cross for Neri, but his close range header was straight at the keeper.

    About 30 seconds later we were gifted the ball, and KBH and Petkovic combined for the latter to square to Neri, who made no mistake this time with a low shot through the keeper’s legs.

    Still in injury time, and KBH was too quick for the defenders, breezing past before taking a shot, but it was well saved.

    In the 65th minute Biro-Biro was pushed over while jumping for a corner, and we were awarded a penalty. It was KBH who stepped up, and it was KBH who increased our lead to 3 goals.

    Kardum and Delahaye came on for Neri and KBH in the 70th minute.

    In the 77th minute, Helsingborg striker Sow somehow managed to get to a cross first, and it trickled over the line to give them a foothold in the match.

    But just over a minute later we slammed the door shut, Petkovic’s cross finding Forsberg, who finished low across the keeper. A good win in the end. Petkovic was brilliant, with two assists and a goal to boot. I’m feeling guilty about Thauvin though, hopefully it was only a knock.

    Rotation again today against Gefle, following the international break. The first choice team will play Utrecht in 3 days time.


    In the 6th minute Kardum opened the scoring with a low effort after the ball had pinballed around the area for a bit.

    We didn’t do anything more for the rest of the half, until Thauvin hit the post from a very tight angle in the 45th.

    Mohlin was called into action in the 48th, making an excellent close range save after a long ball found it’s way past the defence.

    Kardum and Petkovic were arguably our two best players on the pitch, but I replaced them with Forsberg and Molins in the 65th minute. Thauvin moved behind the striker.

    Crisetig replaced Thern in the 71st minute.

    Delahaye slipped Forsberg in behind in the 85th, but somehow the winger missed the target completely.

    A brilliant counterattack in the 87th saw Thauvin play the ball to Molins, whose first touch pass left Delahaye with an open net and and easy finish - unfortunately, he was offside.

    I was disappointed that we only won 1-0, though credit to Gefle, as they played well. Delahaye hasn’t been able to translate his goalscoring form in the Champions League to the league, though the competition is certainly more difficult. Poor Häcken have lost four in a row, and have collected just 8 points from their last 11 fixtures, to slump to 8th in the table, as well as losing in the Swedish Cup.

    Utrecht today as we look to continue our push for the knockout stages. We play Häcken in two days and Helsingborg three days after that, so our fixture list is hectic! It’s vital we don’t drop points against the Dutch outfit, as they could be critical in the race for first or second place.


    Things started awfully though, as we fell behind in the 6th minute to a well executed counterattack, Rodney Antwi scoring his first ever goal for Utrecht.

    And in the 12th minute Cedric Badjeck made it two with a low finish from near the penalty spot. Terrible defending left him in plenty of space.

    Things got worse when Kardum was forced off in the 15th minute by injury. Petkovic replaced him, and Santos moved to AMC.

    Jovic did well to wriggle free in the 30th minute and found himself with just the keeper to beat, but his shot was straight at the man.

    We countered from a free kick two minutes later, and Jovic lofted the ball forwards for Petkovic. The young winger raced goalwards and fired across the keeper, narrowly missing the far post.

    The half time stats:

    Thauvin and Helander replaced Jovic and Ricardinho in the 60th minute, then switched positions with KBH and Romagnoli respectively.

    In the 64th minute Badjeck should have sealed it for Utrecht, but he missed the target completely. I immediately changed the tactics to be more direct.

    And it had an immediate effect! From the goal kick, we worked it forwards through Petkovic and Santos. The former passed to Díaz, who sprayed it wide for Romagnoli. Romagnoli put in a cross, and KBH was there for an easy volley. Game on!

    We went overload in the 80th minute.

    But it wasn’t enough, as we slumped to a terrible home defeat against the bottom seed in the group, who are now top after three rounds. I was furious with the team, and I let them know in no uncertain terms. We dominated the match but a couple of silly early goals left us in a hole, and we struggled from there. Our finishing was woeful, and we were made to pay. This makes qualification far more difficult, and we’ll do well to finish second! Very disappointed. Kardum’s early injury may also prove a headache, particularly with Quintero still out injured.

    No idea but they're also one point off the top of the Eredivisie with a game in hand so things are going well for them. I've always liked them so I wouldn't mind seeing them progress from our group, just not at my expense!

    Thanks very much for your support, highly appreciated!

    Rotated side as the Utrecht debacle was just two days ago. We’ll be looking to bounce back against a very out of form Häcken side.


    Jovic opened the scoring in the 31st minute with a nice finish from Neri’s pass. He’s scored at a phenomenal rate in the league, but has balked on the big stage of the Champions League.

    In the 41st minute Bengtsson’s corner was headed down by Thern, and Molins announced his return to the starting lineup by smashing it into the roof of the net!

    Jovic scored a brilliant volley in the 44th minute but was unfortunately ruled offside.

    Molins was fouled in the box in stoppage time, and a penalty awarded. Jovic made no mistake.

    Forsberg scored his 10th of the season in the 50th minute with a well placed header from Bengtsson’s free kick.

    Santos replaced Neri in the 59th minute.

    Díaz replaced Thern in the 64th.

    Petkovic came on for Molins in the 74th.

    In the 87th Santos passed to Forsberg, who turned and had a crack from 30 yards, but the keeper made a brilliant save.

    In the 92nd Santos fired wide after an excellent run into the box.

    Nothing to complain about today as everyone did their jobs well. I still hope Häcken can turn their season around from here and make a continental qualification spot, though the chances of that are minute.

    Helsingborg again today, and this time we’re at home. After whipping them in their own backyard, we shouldn’t have any trouble today.


    Díaz opened the scoring in the 13th minute with a powerful shot from Thauvin’s pass.

    In the 30th minute Díaz slipped a gorgeous pass in behind the defence for Thauvin, but the Frenchman fired narrowly wide.

    In the 35th minute Linnes’ low cross was controlled by KBH, who turned and lashed a shot past the keeper to double our advantage.

    19 seconds into the second half, KBH picked up his second, collecting Santos’ pass, stepping past his man and hammering it past the keeper.

    Thauvin’s lofted pass down the left wing in the 55th minute was well kept in by KBH, who then cut inside and into the box, before playing a low cross over to Petkovic for an easy finish.

    In the 62nd minute Díaz went down with an injury, so Gustafson replaced him.

    In the 66th minute Helsingborg broke through but KSG made a good stop at head height.

    Forsberg and Molins replaced Thauvin and Petkovic in the 72nd.

    And the pair combined in the 81st minute, with Molins getting on the end of Forsberg’s free kick to head home our 5th.

    A comfortable win against our rivals, with excellent performances all across the board. Díaz was once again brilliant until his injury, and I am desperately hoping that it is nothing serious, as he’s made himself one of my first choice CM’s in recent weeks.

  26. Great that you've been able to keep players like Forsberg, Thern, Tinnerholm and Helander and also bought some swedish talent. As a swede I'm familiar with the swedish players and you've really built a good team. In Sweden I think that it was the fear of supporters of other teams that, after their success in Europe last season, Malmö would be able to buy really good players and easily win the league this year, but it looks more like it's going to be IFK Göteborg who wins it this year. Oscar Lewicki is a really good player that did very well in the U21 tournament that joined them in january. Anyways, you've built a good team here.

    Thanks mate, it's something I've been consciously trying to do, as I tend to get carried away and end up with 20 different nationalities Sweden is my favourite country though so it's a little easier to stick with Swedish players. Yeah I've vaguely followed the real life one, and Malmo haven't kicked on at all after their European success. It's a shame for them but I guess in real life it may not be such a bad thing as it keeps the league competitive. Lewicki has been getting rave reviews, a shame we didn't start with him in game

    Fortunately, Díaz wasn’t injured, but unfortunately, his agent has recognised how good he’s been and wants a new deal. He’s been here less than a year, so it was rejected, though he refused to sack his agent.

    Hahaha when he's less than a year into a contract, that's a silly suggestion! Though I don't mind he kept him because I have a friendly relationship with that agent apparently, think it's the same agent as the goalie I just signed.

  33. One thing I wanted to ask you is how you keep your interest high by playing in the swedish league since you are absolutely dominating. I mean ok the team is doing great, is very strong is capable for big things in Europe but aren't you feel a little bored winning every team by 4 to 5 goals ? I am asking because I always feel that when I start a save with my hometeam Olympiakos. I build a very strong team but after 4 to 5 seasons I get bored beacuse winning the Greek Superleague is becoming very easy. So I try my luck elsewhere.

    Yep at times it gets pretty repetitive, which is why I thought about changing to monthly updates to speed things up a bit. It's the Champions League which keeps me interested but there's a fair possibility that if I win the CL then I will consider moving to another team - maybe another Swedish team to try to bring them to the top too.

  35. It would be an interesting dilemma if you did obtain European glory, the question would be do you move on and start a new dynasty or make Malmo the kings of Europe.

  36. It'd be great to move to another Swedish club, but to impose yourself the restriction that you can't take any Malmo players with you until Malmo lists or releases them. That ensures two top sides can exist where there is only one human manager.

    Something like that could be very interesting. One of the best stories last year was stonecold's Saving the Scottish Game where he brought a Scottish team to the top, then moved to the next Scottish team, and made it one of the top leagues in the world eventually

    Rotation today against Norrköping. After finishing 5th and 3rd in the last two seasons, they’ve had a shocker, and are 13th with two matches to go. You wouldn’t want to be betting your life savings on them beating us today - unless your name is John Carlov.


    Jovic almost opened the scoring 40 seconds in from a corner, but the keeper stuck out a leg to deny him.

    It took us a while to fashion another real chance, and it was my (relatively) experienced wingers Forsberg and Molins combining again in the 36th minute, the latter getting on the end of a cross from the former to send the keeper the wrong way and finish comfortably.

    Jovic won the ball from the centre back with a sliding tackle 3 seconds after the kickoff and moved into the box, but his vicious shot was tipped over the bar.

    Delahaye replaced Jovic in the 62nd minute after an uninspiring performance from the Serbian.

    Some great interplay between Delahaye and Neri just 30 seconds after the Belgian’s arrival sent Forsberg through, but he took too long to get a shot off and a defender raced back to deflect it behind.

    From the resulting corner the ball fell to Forsberg, but he was denied by the keeper, who didn’t really need to move.

    Santos replaced Neri in the 66th.

    Blomqvist picked up a knock shortly afterwards, and I opted to replace him with Milosevic in the 69th.

    Then Molins did what he does best, and got himself injured too. I was forced to play a man short from the 73rd minute. The AMC disappeared, as Forsberg moved to right wing and Santos to the left.

    The rest of the match proceeded without incident. Jovic was disappointing up top, and it showed as we only managed to win 1-0. The defence was solid, but the standout was Neri, who created many an opportunity, though saw the majority wasted by the profligacy of Jovic, amongst others. The main concern is the injuries to Blomqvist and Molins, hopefully both are okay.

  42. Be interesting to see how much longer you can hold onto some of your key players for!! Some real talent and potential you've got in that team

    Yeah so far it hasn't been an issue at all which has been a real surprise. I'm still wary that one day the floodgates will open though, but I have good relationships with my players by now so that certainly helps

    Last league match of the season against Örebrö SK today. Hopefully the first choice team can round off a good year with another win in preparation for our trip to Utrecht mid week.


    KBH opened the scoring in the 4th minute after a partially cleared corner was headed down to him by Crisetig.

    The Korean teed up Petkovic in the 12th minute, but the winger’s shot was held at full stretch by Jansson.

    In the 13th Thauvin played Santos in, but he was also denied brilliantly by Jansson.

    Romagnoli’s 26th minute corner was flicked on by the head of Helander, and Milosevic was at the back post to smash it straight into the defender standing on the line.

    Santos went down in the 33rd minute and had to be replaced by Gustafson. It seems the AMC spot is cursed right now.

    In the 40th minute another corner was only cleared as far as KBH just outside the box. The striker had a crack, which rebounded off a defender and Crisetig displayed fantastic reflexes to volley it into the net.

    In the 54th KBH once again collected a cleared corner, and lobbed it back to Romagnoli, the taker. Romagnoli volleyed a cross into the box, and found Thauvin a couple of yards out, but Jansson dived and got himself between the ball and the goal - an unbelievable save!

    Molins replaced Petkovic in the 57th minute.

    In the 61st minute Milosevic passed back to KSG, who ran almost to the halfway line before launching the ball over the top to Thauvin, who with just the keeper to beat, missed the top right corner.

    Biro-Biro replaced Díaz in the 65th, giving Crisetig a chance to play the more creative midfield role.

    In the 68th minute KSG made an excellent low stop at his near post after a low cross had run almost along the baseline before being picked up and a shot taken.

    In the 70th minute Thauvin’s great pass found KBH, whose shot was too hot for Jansson to handle, and the Korean picked up his second.

    A couple of brilliant tackles in the 80th minute stopped Örebrö getting on the board from a corner which stayed in the danger area for a while.

    We won a corner up the other end, and KBH collected the clearance and sent it back to Romagnoli, who put in a near post cross, which was glanced into the net by Helander.

    In the 87th minute they countered and Kamara had space to shoot. I didn’t even see the ball, but fortunately it missed the target.

    From the goal kick we went upfield, and KBH raced around the defenders before testing Jansson again - this time, the keeper was up to the task.

    A long cross from Romagnoli in the 91st was met by a searing Molins volley, but it skimmed the bar on it’s way over.

    The defenders, and defensive midfielder Crisetig, were the stars today, alongside KBH, who picked up two more goals. Credit to Jansson though, restricting us to 4 goals from 20 shots on target is an impressive effort. Now to the critically important return fixture against Utrecht. I have to pray that Santos is not injured.

    As long as you do well in ECL your star players would be positive to stay but in the end of the day no player is irreplaceable , with the right price tag of course !

    Yeah fingers crossed they remain content to stay here, but of course, if I can get a ridiculous fee then there's every chance I will sell them on

    Rotation today against Norrköping. After finishing 5th and 3rd in the last two seasons, they’ve had a shocker, and are 13th with two matches to go. You wouldn’t want to be betting your life savings on them beating us today - unless your name is John Carlov.
    Laughed so hard at this . That John Carlov infiltrates every topic
