Welcome back to the last blog of season 7 and of this save. We will look at how we got on in the 2nd half of the season after a very difficult 1st half, and a quick word at the end of my thoughts on the save.
As you can see, a very disappointing youth intake to end on. In the end me and the head of youth development decided that we wouldn’t sign anyone from this youth intake.
Youth Player Promotion
David Mella really struggled for good game time overall, the formation change was not good for him. He did get a few starts but that was mainly in our defensive tactic against teams that i felt we would struggle against so that may have contributed to his low average rating.
Copa Del Rey
Another very good cup run from us again! Making it all the way to the Semi’s again, but as you can see we met Real Madrid and were very well beaten but a very good side.
Slightly less red on this screen compared to the 1st half of the season. Good wins against Real Sociedad and Bilbao but also some disappointing results against teams in and around us in the league and an especially embarrassing result against Real Betis. Lets see where we finished in our final season.
Very disappointing end to the season, as we find ourselves in the same position as we were in the 1st half. A comfortbale gap to the relegation places but a 9 point gap to 11th is very poor. I think possibly i was found out tactically by the A.i and was too slow to react to this. Not how i wanted my last season to go.
End Of Season Review
I am obviously disappointed that I wasn’t able to get Deportivo back to the top of Spanish football and ultimately back into Europe, i am frustrated that ive ended this save on somewhat of a whimper, but motivation is low for the save at the moment and would end up ruining the save.
Some positives are that overall we have done well to get Deportivo as essentially a stable La Liga club in 7 seasons, i was just not able to take the next step with them. Thank you so much to all that have read the save, i do hope you have enjoyed it, despite their being many many blogs out there and some of the very highest quality, on that note please do check out the growing amount of high quality blogs on DPFM.
There is a new blog save coming!
