Name - Adam Craig

Age - 30

Location - Sao Paulo, Brazil

Job - English Teacher

Support - Manchester United (blame my father and George Best, N.I family, really do love the club and the history though...every defeat hurts!

Other teams - Santos are my Brazilian team, and have always had a keen interest in Italian football outside the PL.

Joined PFF - Played by mail, but never more than a few turns at a time, was hard getting money to play by post!

Found the website a few years ago and joined for a 3 month stint, but was travelling a lot at that stage and didn't really have spare cash or time.

Back this time and planning to be here for the long haul...really enjoying taking on smaller teams, or neglected sides in a few older games and trying to turn them round. Gives you a lot of satisfaction.

Always loved the thrill of getting in a great player for a smaller team and now I have the time, I am seeing it through and hoping for a few trophies now that I am more involved!

After an exciting 3-3 draw in the first match-up, away against an undefeated Juventus side, 2nd division Villareal feared the worst. It was an incredible game, but against an unbeaten side, the result left the players feeling like they had possibly missed their chance.

However, after a very tense and nervy hour of football, nothing at all like the extremely entertaining first game, Mario Gomez squeezed in a toe poke on 67 minutes to make the fans believe all over again. Delirium then, 10 minutes later, when, of all players, Sergio Busquets controlled the ball beautifully in the box and curled it round the oncoming keeper!

Those goals saw the replay going their way. After 180 minutes their delighted players lifted an unlikely European Challenge Trophy!


VILLARREAL 2 (0) (0) (0) JUVENTUS

After squeaking past a few top dogs by the skin of their teeth, 2nd division Juventus found themselves in a cup final, the European Challenge Trophy final to be exact. Their reward was an "away" tie against 1st division leaders AS Roma.

In what was an incredibly tight affair with nothing to speak of between the teams, 50/50 possession and no more than half chances for either side, things looked deadlocked.

It wasn't be to be decided until the 83rd minute after David Villa had been brought down. He picked himself up and launched a rocket of a free kick which ended up deciding the game and winning Juventus the European Challenge Trophy!


AS ROMA 0 (0) (0) (1) JUVENTUS

This morning, Villareal fans can dare to dream again, after capturing promotion as Division 2 champions!

The squad rebuild that was carried out last season was incredibly difficult to carry out. Players were unavailable in most positions, but the capture of strike partnership Mario Gomez and Peter Crouch struck gold, with 30 goals between them for the season.

A Division 2 title is add to their European Champions Trophy win for what was a very enjoyable season. The league campaign was not overly competitive, with a lot of disorganisation and departing managers all season long. But promotion promises new challenges ahead.

However, rumblings continue about the future of head coach Batigol. If the board fail to aid in with proper defensive reinforcements, he is prepared to walk away for one of the more glamorous positions on offer...


Points 50

A potential dream season became a potential nightmare for Batigol's surprise package Malaga side.

Malaga were flying high, unbeaten, at the top of an albeit Division 2 low on managerial talent (only 3-4 clubs at men in the dugout during the season).

But what made the season special was that they made all 3 cup finals, beating all the giants along the way to get there. Exciting times! The CT final was up first and little Malaga were brought back down to earth, thrashed 3-1 by a rampant Bayern Munich.

Heads dropped, but in the SC final, Malaga managed to hold Chelsea to a 2-2 draw and a replay. More heartbreak ensued however, as an extra time Chelsea penalty gave them the trophy. Crushing disappointment!

However, the same Malaga side, unchanged and playing just days later, were to come out and play AC Milan off the park in the first leg of the big one, the DC final. This week, Malaga completed the job with a hard-fought 2-2 draw in the away league to be crowned DC Cup Champions!

A cup final wasn't on the immediate agenda of Chelsea manager Batigol, when he took over at the end of last season, but as the Londoners made progress, they started to believe and some great performances were rewarded with a glamour final against the best club on the planet, in the unbeaten Real Madrid.

A mammoth task awaited, and normally, these games can flatter to deceive with all the surrounding pressure, but this game will go down as an absolute classic.

Chelsea needed a good start to really challenge Madrid early on, but they went behind before Aguero scored a beautiful curling effort to equalise. Player of the season strikes again when they most needed it.

After the break, however, Chelsea went down again, di Maria powering through to put an omninous Madrid side 2-1 up on the night.

Luck is often a sizeable ingredient on occasions like this, and Chelsea got theirs, as just 7 minutes later, Mario Gotze's deflected strike beat Valdes to equalise.

The script appeared to be written by a Hollywood screenwriter after that, as Modric squared the ball across the goal just 2 minutes time, to queue one of those AGUERRRROOOOO moments and bring the Super Cup to The Bridge.


CHELSEA 3 (1) (1) (2) REAL MADRID

Batigol's remodelling of an ancient and faded Juventus side has the added boost today of finishing the league season unbeaten!

6 or 7 clubs had managers in the division, which led to some disarray early on transfer wise, but Juventus managed to fight their way to the top, and managed to stay there amidst many managerial vacancies opening up over the course of the season.

Juventus started life with Batigol as manager with only 3 aging top stars and a squad that included retired players still on the wage bill. They also lacked any full backs or strikers of any real quality, among a host of other problems, but Batigol has managed to be patient and bring in a competitive first eleven, backed by quite a few decent propects for the future.

All of that was capped off by the Villa/Suarez partnership up front, which terrorised teams all season long and led to their famous cup win, as well as quick promotion the the big time.

Batigol has quickly come out and said that the real challenge starts now, but that he is proud of how the club has bounced back from their neglected and forgotten state. Pride has returned to the Old Lady!


Player of the Season :- Suarez/Villa
Top Scorer :- Suarez (23)
Captain :- Javier Zanetti

Ipswich Town's massive investment has brought them a trophy in the form of the European Challenge Trophy.

After picking up crucial goals in 1-0 wins all season, we had never really seen Ibrahimovic explode the way we know he can. He choose last night to do just that.

A powerful performance with two goals capped an unbelievable display. A delicately headed chip, followed by an awesome freekick to start the party!

An Ipswich Town spokesperson discussed their delight at the trophy and expressed pride in their manager Batigol!

Tonight, AS Roma were celebrating one of the biggest triumphs of their history, and manager, Batigol, one of the most impressive prizes so far in his brief managerial career.

AS Roma were also rans in the Division 2 promotion places when Batigol took control and his revoltution began. Starting with only 2 83's rated players, he proceedd to bring in stars like Gago, Samuel, Cambiasso, Gilardino, Totti, as well as FB's that the club didn't have. Since then Craig has filled out a competitive squad and started to add some valuable young players for the future of the football club.

It was under those conditions that the club's sharp turan around began, winning the playoffs with their new stars before making it to all 3 Cup Finals in their first season in Division 1

After a really disappointing loss, to QPR in the Super Cup, Roma had a replay with Barcelona to contend with in the Challenge Trophy.

In what was their performance of the season so far, they blasted out of the box, with Fernando Gago headed Roma in front after just 10 minutes.

Roma managed to keep up their pressure in a tense affair and then, like it was written in the stars, talisman Francesco Totti scored a spectacular volley on the hour mark to seal the win and the European Challenge Trophy!


AS ROMA 2 (1) (0) (0) BARCELONA
FERNANDO GAGO (10)

A star studded Real Madrid sid made sure they didn't finish the season empty handed, as new recruits Kompany, Alberto and Didi all made the line-up for the Super Cup final against Juventus.

After a tense draw in the first game, the match had gone to a replay and but once again, after 90 minutes, there was nothing to split the two teams. Pele showing his class to equalize Cruyff's opener.

It was not a legend, however, but Mario Gomez who struck a venemous volley in the 99th minute to once again put daylight between the two teams.

Just four minutes later, the individual brilliance of Rivelino decidd the tie, making it 3-1 on the night and giving one more European title to the giants of Real Madrid!


JUVENTUS 1 (0) (1) (3) REAL MADRID

A squad like Chelsea's in 7564 should never have found themselves in Division 2. Having taken over at the tail end of Season 4, manager Batigol planned his escape from the lower division.

With only a few active managers, Chelsea made quick progress and, once they got to the summit, stayed there for the remainder of the season.

Manager Batigol was shrewd in the transfer market, bringing in a host of big name signings. Their performances were rewarded through the confirmation of their double this past week.


Player of the Season:- Andrea Pirlo
Top Scorer:- Sergio Aguero (18)
Captain:- Andrea Pirlo

In what is surely manager Batigol's most successful season in football management, AS Roma have sucessfully completed a cup double, following up their CT trophy success earlier in the month, AS Roma, today, completed a DC Cup triumph over Manchester City.

After a tense first leg that was only settled by a single Petr Trowchowski goal, Roma provided their fans with arguably their best performance of the season to seal the trophy.

Unrivalled talisman, Francesco Totti beat Pepe Reina one on one to open the scoring a get a crucial away goal after just 7 minutes. Although Podolski equalised just 10 minutes later for City, Roma were not to be denied.

A little more than 5 minutes before the break, Totti once again found himself in the exact same position as he had been after just 7 minutes, this time, opting to power the ball past Reina to make it 2-1 and 3-1 on aggregate.

Not to be outshone by his strike partner, Alberto Gilardino scored a terrific volley on 55 minutes to put the tie beyond doubt.

Batigol has galvanised his group of rejected and transfer listed players, and not only made them safe, dining once again at football's top table, but he has brought them two of football's most prestigious trophies.

It's a sensational story, and it could still get better, just 3 days after their triumph, Gilardino/Totti were at it again, beating Chelsea 3-1 in Rome to go 4 oints clear at the top of Division One.

Are these ragtag bunch of Roman gladiators about to complete a fairytale?


MAN CITY 1 (1) (2) (3) AS ROMA
Aggregate score: 1-4 ; AS ROMA win on aggregate
LUKAS PODOLSKI (17)

FRANCESCO TOTTI (7)
FRANCESCO TOTTI (39)
