Season 9 starts with new expectations set across four competitions.
- Coupe de la Ligue
- Coupe de France
- UEFA Europa League
- Ligue 1
For the Coupe de la Ligue, the board would like us to reach the Semi Final. First up, a game against AS Monaco, as we enter the tournament in the fourth round.
They’re a good team, so we go a little bit more defensive than we’d originally set out to play, and we take an early lead through right-back Jeando Fuchs. Monaco don’t threaten much and we end up 3-0 winners.
Next up is the Quarter Final, and a match against Stade Malherbe Caen. It’s a game that we should win. And, if we’re to meet board expectations, we really need to. But we don’t, and after a frustrating 0-0 (where we got 5 yellow cards), we crash out on penalties.
The board are disappointed that the team only reached the Quarter Final of the Coupe de la Ligue.
Yes, me too.
