Saviola was our top scorer in the league and overall. He scored a total
of 33 goals in all competitions. What made it more interesting was that
he achieved this amazing feat by playing in just 31 games. Bergkamp
followed with 24 goals, Henry (21) and Wiltord (18). Joe Cole was the
top scorer among the midfielders, he got 11. Ljungberg and Pires got
10 each, followed by Greening (8) and Parlour (6). Vieira, Lauren and
Vernazza scored 2 each and Quinn with a solitary goal. The defenders
scored much more than before. Woodgate top the charts with 5 goals,
Ferdinand and Hill with 2, followed by Canoville, Silvinho and Upson
with 1 each.
The Reserves had a bad season by their standards. I guess it must be
because of the fact that I've promoted a couple of senior players to
the first team. Here's how they fared, 11 wins, 6 draw and 6 defeats.
As usual, a few players caught my eye, Barrett (6), Notman (2), Noble
(2), Pennant, Chilvers and Sidwell with a goal each.
Wiltord finally decided that he wants a newer challenge after winning
everything with Arsenal. I was reluctant to let him go but for the sake
of exposing Barrett and Notman to the first team, I set his transfer
at £9 million. 18 players represented their respective national
squad whereas 2 players represented the Under-21 squad.
I finished the season as a World Class manager, finishing at 2nd place
behind Fabio Capello of AS Roma. I scored 536368 points this season.
I hope you have an enjoyable time reading about my exploits.
