Another down-and-up season for the Blades...

It was the same old story for the Frecheville Blades this season - a disappointing first half of the season raised the spectre of relegation firmly in the minds of fans, only to be followed by what can only be described as title form in the second half lifting the team into mid-table obscurity. Just like last season.

A big part of the revival was down to the shift to a 3-5-2 formation, and the signing of some key new players - young midfield sensation Jose Barrera has come in for a massive £3M to give some more quality alongside Tim Borowski, while two free agents have really shored things up. Du Wei has given some aerial prowess at the back which had been missing for a long time, while Foster Amadi's amazing goal haul really helped out - something like 14 in 17 at the end there while covering for the injured Jimmy Briand.

Anyway, here's the final table:

An improvement on last season for sure, and I only just miss out on UFFA football next season - though maybe if someone has been inactive I might scrape a place... The problem is still up front - goals still too hard to come by for the Blades.
