Bury FC: Season 10 – The Halfway Mark

Hi everyone, welcome back to my Bury story. This post is about the first half of our season 10, and it’s pretty long, so I suggest you make youself comfortable before starting to read!

After only making one major signing in the summer, Sebastien Boyomo for 18m, despite needing reinforcements on the RW and possibly a new striker, (oh my god, ive turned into wenger :L ;-) ) you could say, Arsenal are favourites again for another triumph. Then again, their manager, big Sam Allardyce announced his resignation and retirement from football, so we could have an advantage there. Lets see:

Premier League Resutls – Aug – Jan

Well our tactics change (remember) didn’t take long to adjust. I’d say it’s been a good first half season in the league, some ridiculous points dropped against Liverpool, Bolton and West Brom though. Boyomo has been an excellent signing. Lets look at the standout matches.

Liverpool 4-3 Bury

I felt like crying after this match! The first game of the season when you want to stake a claim and my team throws a 3-1 leadd away! On the plus side, Boyomo scored on his debute :D

Bury 3-1 Arsenal

Now, with this victory I wanted to laugh! 1-0 down, 3-1 up. Boyomo scored a screamer of a goal, i think he is the only player on our team that can score goals like that. Goals like the one David Villa scored against Real Madrid, out of nowhere!

Bury 5-0 Liverpool

Excellent victory, the way we demolished them in the first half! Notice, Sebastien Boyomo always scores in the big matches? ;-)

League Table

Well it’s been Bury and Arsenal again. Man Utd seem to be doing well this season as they spent quiet a lot in the summer.

Champions League Results

We were seeded 1st for this years Champions League, the first time in my reign. We won every game apart from one, meaning we topped the group and will face Dortmund in the first knockout round.

The best match of this years groupstage is the 4-3 win over rangers, 3-1 down with a man sent off after 9mins…

Carling Cup Results

Once again beating Arsenal on our way, but Blackburn was much more difficult performance eventually winning on extra time. We face Chelsea in the semi final, I think we could win the competition again this year, as we usually do well in this competition.

Squad Ratings

The questions we need to ask:

1) Has Boyomo been a hit or a miss

2) Has Quimbamba improved his performances? If yes why?

3) Do we still need another striker?

4) Is the new formation working?

Ze Carlos is our best player, as usual. Vinicius has had a massive rise from last season.

Now to answer the questions:

1) Definately a hit

2) Yes performances has improved, mainly because of the new formations which gives him freedom to attack. This is why I think Vinicius, our LW, is also playing very well. I’m still going to bring in another RW as CSAtlantis made me realise, his acceleration = 11 which makes him far too slow, and stutters him in attacks.

3) Yes, Lorenz is our worst player, Fiorentino has only scored 6 league goals.

4) Yes, Yes and YES!

Anyway, I think for the first time I will be spending a lot in January, stay tuned to find out!

Thanks for reading!

    Sayam i have read all of your premier league adventure for the want of a better word tonight and i think your time is nearing where you will win everything! How much are you looking to spend in Janaury?

      Hi Jake, Thanks although I don’t think I will ever do the quadruple. My game has a lot of competative teams, arsenal, milan, atletico (2 times CL winners in a row for the past seasons!!) , barcelona!

      Erm, I would have like to have kept that a secret but since you have asked, I’m looking to spend 50m. I’ve found two players that I have simply fallen in love with and have to buy. One of them is a RW ;-)

    Looking good so far, you managed to beat your closest rivals and that tells a lot about the team’s strength. Looking forward to a quadruple this season, good luck! :)

    Hi Sayam
    What a crushing set of wins over PSV! 12-0 total score, that mut have been fun to watch. Looks like another two horse race in the EPL and hopefully you cross the finish line first with Bury. Good luck!

      Hi Kevin, yes the PSV wins were satisfying but I found the Rangers win more pleasing!

    Going well Sayam, despite the lack of goals from the strikers you’re still top, and if you can get a quality forward signed in January as well as a RW, then you should be able to win the league. Good luck!

      Absolutely correct Darren, a striker is top priority.

      • Sayam Khan

        August 16, 2011 at 15:12

        I mean Laxeyman*

    A good start mate and despite scoring a tonne of goals you don’t seem to have a striker who’ll score every game. I think you should invest in that area as well as RW as you’ve mentioned. Good luck.

    • Sayam Khan

      August 16, 2011 at 16:05

      Yes Darren, your correct and I hope to bring in a striker.

    Hi Sayam,

    Good start and Boyomo looks amazing. Your team scores loads without having a consistent striker so if you get one in then you’ll be really hard to beat. Can’t wait to see who you sign in January.

      Thanks Dan.

    Some great results there and you seem to be at the very least challenging Arsenal :) Good to see Boyomo playing so well and your team are really clicking:)

    Good going Sayam, I also think your a good striker away from being a really fantastic side as everything else is in place.

    The league is pretty close so the best of luck!
