    MATCH WEEK 1 PREVIEW

    Real Sociedad open TFS Season 7 under the management of RedAL925, an experienced manager who is notorious for his late-season collapses and season of almost. After a relatively successful campaign at the helm of PSV Eindhoven, TFS pundits were more than shocked to learn that the Dutch club would be without their manager at the start of Season 7. "I decided it was time for a change. As most are aware, my eyes were fixed on a certain club from the north of France. But that club were deemed ineligible for the competition, so I had to make a new plan." TFS insiders know that this mystery club is none other than LOSC Lille, and despite their poor form, "Les Dogues" remained ineligible.

    So manager RedAL opens his account with Spanish club Real Sociedad. A team with a wealth of attacking options, but decidedly weak at the back, it remains to be seen what adjustments need to be made ahead of the Season 7 opener vs Parma. "We started slow in preseason, but so did most clubs. After our win against BigSmooth33 and Celtic, we were feeling much more confident about the start of the season."

    In Parma and Montpellier, Sociedad will feel that 4 points is a necessity, with the full 6 not out of the question. "Manager vipermansa has one Serie A season under his belt, so that should be a tough match. For heznfire , he has had success in the lower leagues, but this being his first Serie A campaign, he will need time to adjust." Reports earlier in the week suggested that the Italians had little to no preparation for the upcoming season, so manager RedAL will hope the inexperience shows in the match.

    Matchday 3 sees the Spanish side host Russian giants Anzhi and shiftee . Anzhi have been picked as early title favorites, led by Cameroon striker S. Eto'o. In what has been selected as Match of the Week, two of the title hopefuls square off for what should be an entertaining match.

    You should be confident, but with a grain of salt... You kicked my ass, but I think I've got a long way to go to be competitive.

    The win settled my nerves about my team, no slight on you. No doubt once you re-learn Celtic you'll be a force.

    MATCHDAY 1: 10.12.12
    CASTRO BRACE SETS SOCIEDAD ON RIGHT FOOT

    Real Sociedad started their TFS campaign with a hard-fought 2-1 win over newboys Parma. G. Castro was the hero, scoring a brace on either side of Amauri's first-half strike. The home side were confident on the ball, maintaining a strong 55% possession for the match, a number manager RedAL will feel should increase as the season progresses. "It was a good start for the boys. We managed to win the possession battle, something I always preach to my squads. And [Castro] was exceptional today playing just behind the front three. We did get a bit stretched at some points in the game, but we recovered well, and only gave up the rebounded goal." C. Bravo was named Man of the Match after the game, contributing with a number of key saves on the night.

    TEN-MAN SOCIEDAD SURVIVE MONTPELLIER SCARE

    Real Sociedad survived a 78' Red Card to defeat Montpellier 2-1 in the Basque country. The home team wasted no time getting on the score sheet, as captain Xabi Prieto bundled home on a scramble in front of goal just 3 minutes into the match. The score remained 1-0 into the second half, until a rather dubious penalty call allowed Y. Belhanda to equalize from the spot, beating C. Bravo to the right (with the keeper guessing correctly). With the score level, Montpellier pressed for the go-ahead goal on the road, having already been drubbed by Parma hours earlier. It seemed the French champions would have their wish, as a horror tackle by Jose Angel produced a straight red card. Belhanda once again stepped up to take the kick, and once again went to the right. But C. Bravo was up to the task this time, blocking the shot and smothering the rebound. Sociedad did well to defend in the final 12 minutes of play to preserve the full 3 points.

    TEN-GOAL THRILLER IN SPAIN

    Real Sociedad and Anzhi, two powerhouse Serie A teams, shared 10 goals equally in a thrilling 5-5 draw. The visiting team jumped out to an early 3-0 lead, only to have it slip away from 3 unanswered goals by the home team. Sociedad would take the initiative in the second half, but Anzhi regained the lead 5-4 before Zurutuza saved a point for Real. The defense in this game was non-existant, as Anzhi looked to counter Real's possession game.

    Coppa Group C: Matchday 1
    SOCIEDAD HOLD OFF FRANKFURT

    Real Sociedad escaped Frankfurt with all three points in a 3-2 win over the home side. A header by midfielder Illaramendi put the visitors ahead going into halftime, but the home side started strong in the 2nd half, scoring two quick goals to move ahead of the Spanish club. But Sociedad maintained their composure, scoring two of their own, the winner by A. Griezmann, to take a stronghold on Group C. Frankfurt were unlucky to snatch a point at the death, with their last-gasp effort clanging the outside of the post and cleared away.

    SOCIEDAD EASE PAST STOKE

    Real Sociedad played their best game to date, shutting out Stoke City in a 2-0 win. Real dominated the run of play through the entire match, scoring goals on either side of halftime. Jose Angel's return from suspension proved fruitful, as he grabbed an assist en route to a Man of the Match performance. The left back was in an advanced position when he lost the ball, but regained his composure, won it back, and sent in a cross that bounced once in the box before finding the head of Xabi Prieto for the opening goal. Stoke did not threaten to score in the 2nd half until, after C. Vela put the home side up 2-0, Mikel Gonzalez fouled a Stoke player in the box from a corner routine. Peter Crouch stepped up to take the kick, but it was well saved by C. Bravo. Sociedad killed the game and took all 3 points.

    SOCIEDAD SINK SUNDERLAND

    Real Sociedad's slick passing and lethal finishing put an abrupt end to any hopes of an upset by Sunderland, as the visitors responded to an early goal with 4 of their own in a 4-1 win. Real had not even sniffed possession of the ball when S. Sessegnon broke through and scored just 2 minutes into the match. Sociedad responded quickly through C. Vela's fine finish, but the threat was not evaded, as Sunderland continued to keep possession and make attempts at goal. Sociedad's defense did yeoman's work throughout the entire match, and soon Real found their passing game clicking on all cylinders, as goals from Dani Estrada, Vela, and A. Griezmann sealed the 3 points for the visiting team.

    CARROLL'S WINNER BEATS SOCIEDAD

    Andy Carroll's 90' goal gave West Ham a 2-1 win over visiting Real Sociedad in TFSerie A play. It was a rainy night in London, which seemed to play to the home side's advantage. West Ham dominated the game in the 1st half, and were unlucky to take the lead. Sociedad were not to be outdone, however, starting the 2nd half brightly, and finding the back of the net through G. Castro. But West Ham grabbed an equalizer 17 minutes later on the head of M. Maiga before Carroll's heroics sent the local fans home happy.

    "We will feel hard done by this match, but truthfully manager CxMacx10 deserved the points in this one. We were not up for it in the first half, and though we played better in the second half, we would have been very fortunate to take any points out of the match."

    COPPA GROUP MATCH 2: 10.26.12
    SOCIEDAD CRUISE TO TOP OF GROUP

    Sociedad had no problem dispatching VfL Wolfsburg in Coppa Group Stage Match 2, thrashing the home side 5-0. "At first we thought we were playing the best football we've played all season, but as the match went on, it became clear that Wolfsburg were not themselves," said manager RedAL after the match. "We are not very proud of this win, but 3 points is 3 points, and we will move forward."

    G. Castro and C. Vela scored inside 20 minutes before Illaramendi and another Castro goal put the result beyond doubt. Second-half substitute Agirretxe scored a 5th in the 2nd half, and from there Real dropped into a defensive shell. "The result could have been much much worse, but we held on to some sort of fair play principle and did not attempt to pour it on." Despite their struggles, Wolfsburg did manage to win 7 corner kicks, although they could not capitalize vs C. Bravo.

    SWANSEA SPEED PAST SOCIEDAD

    Swansea City used the counter attack to great effect against visiting Real Sociedad, putting 4 past the vulnerable defense in a rout. The visiting side took the initiative in the 24' through Zurutuza's fine finish, but the home side responded quickly with 2 goals on the counter through De Guzman and Graham. Graham added his second in the second half before A. Griezmann pulled one back with an exquisite chip of the keeper. However Graham would not be denied his hat trick, scoring a header in the 90' to kill the match and seal all 3 points for the struggling Serie A side.

    SOCIEDAD TOP THE GROUP WITH CONVINCING WIN

    Real Sociedad finished their Coppa Group C campaign with a convincing 6-1 win over Serie C newboys Aston Villa to top the group with a perfect 9 from 3 record. The match was never really in doubt, as the home side maintained over 60% possession throughout the match. The passing game was on, and the shooting boots were laced as Sociedad put 6 past a helpless S. Given. Both G. Castro and Xabi Prieto scored a brace to lead the home side to victory.

    MATCHDAY 10: 11.4.12
    TEN MINUTE COLLAPSE DOOMS REAL

    Hannover 96 dismantled Real Sociedad in a ten-minute stretch, taking the match 4-1 for all 3 points. The home side controlled proceedings throughout the match, but it was the visitors who took the initiative through C. Vela's 8th of the season. "Going into halftime, we felt good about where we were with the lead. They were dictating the run of play, but we had the goal and we defended pretty well in the first half," said manager RedAL.

    Hannover made a formation change to match Sociedad's 4-3-3, and it immediately paid dividends. In just 10 minutes, Hannover hung 4 goals on Sociedad. The first, a well-placed strike by S. Huszti to tie the match, was surprising just by how far out the weak shot was able to roll in. M. Abdellaoue then managed to get his shot off before being crunched by a tackle to give the home side the lead just 3 minutes later. In a state of shock, Real completely lost composure, allowing 2nd half substitute M. Diouf break away on a counter before Felipe headed home a corner kick to complete the comeback.

    "It is inexcusable...indescribable. We completely shut down after the second goal. That is not good enough to win a title, and we only have difficult games left to play from here on out. We cannot keep giving up goals like this, especially in such a short amount of time. It did not help that we only managed 50% of our shots on target, but if we're not going to score, we can't let 4 goals in. Credit where it's due, manager rschwep did a good job of neutralizing our attack in the final 3rd, and taking his chances when he could."

    TSO-P OPEN CUP - ROUND OF 16: 11.10.12
    MOLINARO HORROR SHOW DOOMS STUTTGART

    Real Sociedad advanced to the TSO-P Open Cup quarterfinals on the back of 2 penalties both conceded by C. Molinaro. The visitors put out a mostly reserve squad for the cup tie, with backups in at almost every position. It was A. Griezmann, a normal starter, who earned a penalty after some fancy footwork inside the area drew a bad challenge from C. Molinaro. With neither primary or secondary penalty taker in the game, Griezmann insisted he take the kick, and he made no mistake about it, sending the keeper the wrong way to put Real ahead, 1-0 going into halftime.

    The second half started much like the first, until a seemingly harmless foul outside 40 yards turned into an equalizer for Stuttgart, as V. Ibisevic got his head to the long ball into the box by G. Sakai to level the score. With just a quarter of an hour to play, Zurutuza made a bursting run through midfield and to the top of the box, where he was brought down by none other than C. Molinaro. Although this penalty was decidedly more dubious than the last, Zurutuza blasted the kick over the keeper for the eventual game-winner.

    MATCHDAY 11: 11.8.12
    Bordeaux Gets Back On Track With Much Needed Win
    "Finally," commented Bordeaux's captain Jaroslav Plasil following the match, as Bordeaux ended a lengthy winless streak. "We were slumping there for a while, but we've been playing well recently and we feel this result is more indicative of our recent performance." Bordeaux peaked with a 9-point performance in Matchweek 1, but has secured just 3 points off of 3 draws in the 7 games since. Along with dropping all 3 matches in the Coppa Qualification, Coach Bronc's seat was beginning to warm up. However, players and coaches alike have noted that it appears the team has turned the page. But before the club gets their hopes up too much, let's not forget that this win was a close one. Bordeaux and Real Sociedad were playing a now rarely-seen defensive battle with few shots and strong defending. However, a 0-0 draw was in fact too good to be true. In the 63rd minute, Ludovic Obraniak broke through for the French side to give them a 1-goal lead. Bordeaux was unable to add another, and as the game entered the final 10 minutes, Bordeaux was eager to prove they were no longer a club plagued by last-minute goals. Real Sociedad had some chances, but the Bordeaux defense held strong and earned the clean sheet. The club hopes to build upon this win, yet supporters will still likely remain worrisome until they see a string of positive results.

    TSO-P OPEN CUP QUARTERFINAL: 11.12.12
    WONDER KIDS OUST FORMER CLUB

    Manager RedAL was all too familiar with his TSO-P Open Cup opponent in the quarterfinals. 1899 Hoffenheim, a team once managed by RedAL, now headed by longtime rival IJGator were next on the match sheet. Many hours were spent trying to figure out a way to stop S. Salihovic from doing damage in midfield, and the plan seemed to be working, until new signing E. Derdiyok smashed home the game's opening goal just 8 minutes in. The two teams struggled to maintain possession, and it seemed like Hoffenheim's opener would be the games only goal. But in the 32', reserve player Ros made a strong statement for more playing time, with a blistering shot that hit under the crossbar and in for the equalizer. The teams went into the break 1-1, and neither team could find the go-ahead goal in the 2nd half. But just when everyone though we were headed to extra time, Ruben Pardo made a quick turn, and blasted a shot past the keeper for the game-winning goal.

    TSO-P OPEN CUP SEMIFINALS: 11.16.12
    SOCIEDAD RESERVES CRASH OUT

    Real Sociedad have been eliminated from the inaugural TSO-P Open Cup, falling to Serie A stalwarts Sao Paulo 1-0. The home side opted for a full-strength lineup to counter Sociedad's reserve-laden team. "The plan was always for the reserves to play in this competition," said manager RedAL. "We are confident in their ability, and they showed it up to this match. Today we were simply not good enough." While the center of defense remained in tact, most of the midfield and forward lines were changed out for less-experienced players. It was Lucas who scored the games only goal on a breakaway in the 1st half. The loss will feel familiar for manager RedAL, who's last semifinal appearance was cut short at the hands of manager Zikry.
