It was really shameful performance that we showed in Dublin. Home team played 10 man since Carr was on 6th minute sent off for last man foul. Comming penalty converted captain Andrea Pirlo and i thought it'll be an easy match for us. But Clive Clarke and Stephen Eliott scored with nice long range shots somewhere by 30th minute of the match and turned the score over.
1st half: 4-3-1-2
Oddo - Nesta - Bazagli - Grosso
Brocchi - Pirlo - Gattuso
Toni - Gilardino
Noone of our players collected any card, Esposito picked minor injury by the end of the match. I wasn't too happy with our overall performance, in fact only Oddo, Grosso and Toni seemed in good form, but as it's start of the season, and it was only friendly match, there is no need to worry - in Scotland we will be much better!
We came to Scotland for three points, but didn't enjoyed the best start as our defense forget to cover Kenny Miller after corner kick and he easily scored. Equaliser came in extra time of first half, Toni was fouled in the area and it was a bit surprisingly Matterazi who went to take it. Luckely Matrix sent the keeper wrong way and made it 1-1. We had great start of second half as Luco Toni made it 1-2 soon. We had the game under control... until 77th minute, Materazzi was down, but the play continued and home team converted 3 on 2 situation into goal by Andy Gray.
Oddo - Nesta - Materazzi (78' Barzagli) - Pasqual
Brocchi (46' Fiore) - Pirlo - Barone - Grosso
Toni - Caracciolo (46' Gilardino)
After this match went home Materazzi and also Peruzzi, who got injured in the training the next day, i called on their places Zauri and Sicignano.
Belarus - Italy 1-4 (ht 1-4)
Everything important happened in first 30 minutes of the match. Toni opened the score with two simillar goals - header after cross from wing, then Diana made it 0-3, his Samp team mate Kutuzov replied with a nice shot, but it was once again Toni who scored and by his hattrick secured an easy win for his team.
Oddo - Nesta - Dainelli (67' Barzagli) - Grosso
Diana - Pirlo - Barone - Di Natale (46' Pasqual)
Toni (67' Gilardino) - Rocchi
Two matches left into end of qualifiacation group stage, we are 2 points ahead of Slovenia, in last two matches we will welcome Slovenia (in Udine) and Moldova (in Bari).
Just opened a new game with AC Milan on CM 01 02
in the past when I was pretty much a CM noob Milan was a team I always wanted to coach but ended up screwing up with.
Anyway, that being said I found a new formation to use with Milan that works pretty well. A sort of modified 3-5-2 if you will...

Okay, I tried doing one of these a few years back and failed spectacularly. I played the game but did **** all with the story. This time I'm determined. I don't play the newer Football Managers so this one is perfect. I have played as Oldham before and know the workings of the club and who to...
