Started a game with Napoli with the latest ODB release. It will only be a one season game because I'm just having a bit of fun with a tactic I've made, which is essentially a 4-1-5. Made one signing, Mauro Zarate. Line-up is as follows:


---------------------Cavani----------------

----Pandev-----Hamsik----Lavezzi-----Zarate

-------------------------------------------

----------------------Inler----------------

--Dossena--Cannavaro-----Fernandez--Zuniga


-------------------De Sanctis----------------

So, very attacking. Played 4, won 4 in the league. Won in the Champs League qualifiers and beat Real Madrid in my first group game, 1-0.

Ive started a new game, got to say its only my 6th game since 2002. My last game crashed in 2040, spanish competition bug kinda screwed me over.. 30 games in 5 days with a club like Getave winning doesn't cover it for me. Ive spended 8 hours a day coaching my favorite team AFC Ajax and enjoyed the game. won everything multiple times and even enjoyed the times when i won jack-all because of my incompatibility when it comes to scouting and tactical knowledge.
So i started a new game, ODB no patches or updates. Am in Denmark right now at Lyngby with Nikiforenko, Baga, Ibrahimovic and Maicon in 2005, making the best of it. Reached the quarter finals in the Champions League last year, having a minor set back with place 5 in the Danish League at the moment, but i'll probably survive! My next step will probably be Russia before i can return to Holland. Can't wait to coach a dutch club!

Managing Alemannia Aachen using the ODB. Secured promotion to the Bundesliga in my first season in charge, consolidated with a 12th place finish the following year, then took third place in the two years after that.

Now I've just won the Bundesliga on a thrilling final day: going into the last game, we were level with Dortmund but behind by one on goal difference. Dortmund took an early 1-0 in its fixture and held onto that, meaning we needed two goals to take the championship (we were well ahead on goals scored). At 3-2 up with five minutes to go, it looked like it was all over... at which point Marco Reus broke free and slotted home the title-winning goal from a distance. Thrilling stuff.

Slightly different game going on from the above replies (which all sound very interesting btw).

Currently playing my first save in over several months. Using Tapani patch 2.19 with January 2011 data update, starting in 2010/2011 (I just can't play CM with an incorrect date) so I'm a season behind real life.

Started off with Leyton Orient in League One with the ambition to get them promoted and into the EPL. In the past I was always stuck in my ways with tactics using my own 4-4-2 DDL creations or the classic PB8, but this time I opted to change and started using other people's tactics that are based on realistic formations. It's been fun.

Midway through my first season with the O's I was running away with League One. However, this caused bigger clubs to come sniffing for my players and despite making money off transfers the Board refused to give me any money to replace them. Sheffield Wednesday had just sacked Megson at this time, they were 22nd in the same League and I applied for the job thinking I'd have no chance in getting it, seeing as I hadn't even completed 1 season yet...but I did and I jumped at the chance.

Managed to get Wednesday from 22nd to finish 4th from February to May, which included victory over Burton in the Football League Trophy. I was fortunate in the Play-Off final too as the opposition had both keepers sent off in the first half.

The next season in the Championship, I was able to improve the squad adding BARGAINS like Alex Chamberlain and Connor Wickham who were both available for under £500k due to clauses in their contracts. I ended up winning the League by 106 points. By the end of the season, both players mentioned above starting moaning about wanting to leave and move to a bigger club with constant requests to be transfer listed. However, I'd put minimum fee clauses in their contracts of £15 Million so they were not going anywhere.

I was all content with the ambition to turn Wednesday into a top 8 EPL Club as quickly as possible until I saw Arsene Wenger get the sack at Arsenal a few games before the end of the season. Curious, I saw that he had previously finished 3rd in the EPL with no Cup wins and was set to finish between 7th-9th in the EPL in the current season (which is why he got the boot, I imagine). Strangely, they sacked him just before the FA Cup Final, which they won in extra-time against Championship side Cardiff City.

A quick look at the Manager Stats told me that, for some reason, I was 5th in the list for reputation with 'superb'. Getting the Wednesday job so early in the game was 'lucky' and I thought I'd try my luck again with the Arsenal job, if I don't get it, I won't be too bothered. They took a week to get back to me but they offered me the job, with £88 Million spending money. I just couldn't turn it down.

Not much had changed from the squad Arsenal had in the 2010/2011 season. Just add Vidic from Man Utd to the squad and you could guess the first XI. I don't know how the hell Wenger managed to finish outside the top 6 with this side. Plus, a quick look at 'future transfers' told me Gary Cahill was set to join in the summer for £8 mill.

Being a new manager, I wanted to make my mark and immediately released all the backroom staff except some scouts and Steve Bould, hiring some new faces. I then transfer listed Andrei Arshavin and Marouanne Chamakh, despite having solid seasons I just knew I could find better replacements.

It was a busy pre-season before the 2012-2013 season kicked off. I just counted that I'd sold 33 players! Some were released, but most of them included decent transfer fees for youth players who didn't seem to be doing anything and players I wanted to replace. Liverpool took Arshavin off my hands for £8 Million whilst Sevilla took Chamakh for £13.5 Million.

I tried to sign Fabiano from Sevilla for £12 Million but he had no interest in joining me. With only RVP and Carlos Vela to name as strikers, I had a long search for some decent replacements and the best I could find was Emmanuel Adebayor who was out of favour at Manchester City (sorry to any Gooners reading). Signed for £2 Million he's been rather prolific so far so it has been a decent deal. Joining him is Didier Drogba on a free transfer and a young German striker Deniz Naki which my scout found at St.Pauli.

I also signed Ben Foster to give Szcezny some competition in goal. Went to my former Club Wednesday and took Oxlade-Chamberlain for £7 Million and added a dozen youth players who'll hopefully turn out good in the future.

Currenly 5 games into the EPL and I still have a 100 % record, including a 3-0 victory at WHL but not getting carried away too much.

In all my years playing CM, I don't think I've ever managed to move to bigger clubs in such a short space of time so it's been very refreshing. I hope you've enjoyed reading.

Managed back to back promotions and league wins with Palace, so it's Premier League next year! Passed the magical 100 points milestone but couldn't beat my old record of 104 points from 0304 with Brentford. Made a lot of changes to the squad I took over, particularly happy with this signing which I think was £75k well spent:

Playing Celtic at the moment, with some restrictions:
- I can have 3 foreign players total
- non-foreign players are: scottish, irish, n.irish
- non wib/wib tactics by me only


First season was kind of boring, I spent lots of time with offloading foreigners (from Kayal to Hinkel), but it was worth it, I received about 25 million dollars from transfers.
I also did the double (scottish premiership + UEFA cup), the scottish league seems to be doable with my restrictions, but the UEFA cup required 2 very lucky results. (semis: 2-2 aggregate against Juve, with Marchisio's own goal in Turin and a won penalty shootout)


My best team (I think it is).

__________Gilks___________
Hutton_Evans_Webster_Lowry
__________Grella_________
___Brown__Norwood___Ledley
_____Stokes____Maloney


- Corry Evans and Norwood came from Man United for a few million
- Vince Grella from Rovers (1M I think)
- Shane Lowry from Aston Villa for like 500k
- Webster from Hearts for 250k (he was not playing for some reason)
- Gilks came from Blackpool with activating his 450k relegation fee
I also fancied signing Charlie Adam (to replace Grella next year), but he seems to be a Rangers boy.

This team is good enough to dominate the premiership, and I have some players who can turn out to be good (Marr, Feruz, Forrest, Cervi) but are mainly question marks now, and a few who are rubbish but good enough cover for domestic cups (Mulgrew, O'Dea, Commons).

I am really in trouble signing scots from the premiership, who I wanted (Hanley from Blackburn and an other young scotsman CB from Liverpool) are 'not for sale'. Also not for sale was Craig Gordon, who I really wanted but had to settle for Gilks instead.

Current house rule-foreigners are: Vince Grella and Joe Ledley. (Lowry was aussie/irish, but was called up to Ireland after his brilliant 1,5 season)

3rd season with november 2011 database i think

Started on Spanish 2DB with Ontinyent, promoted to 1st division in 2 years, was 2nd in January on 1st division and then Deportivo fired his coach when they were on relegation positions, so i left my team with almost-guaranteed champions league spot and a promising squad, to make Deportivo achieve european success once again


I wanted the benefits of having a B team, because Ontinyent has none, and a 34000 capacity stadium, instead of the 5000 of "El Clariano" :(

I'm coming to the end of my first season with Juventus on March update.

Seven games to go, first in Serie A, six points ahead, in the semi's of UEFA Cup and Italian Cup Final.

Sold a few players

Matri £17m
Motta £3.9m
Martinez £3.8m
Felipe Melo £12.25m
De Ceglie £8m
Lichtsteiner £11.25m and a few others.

Main players brought in

Dorlan Pabon £3.2m (recommended by a scout called Dermotron)
Mauro Zarate £4m
Mathieu Flamini £1.3m
Antonio Candreva £3m
Ricardo Gabriel Alvarez £3m

Marchisio has been the player of the season. I've set his value to the max (£30m) to stave off other clubs. Arturo Vidal has been excellent too. Had a lot of lengthy injuries to Pirlo, Elia & Candreva.

Attempting to get Moldova to Euro 2004, second-last game against Turkey, a win means I'm as good as through, a draw means I need everything to go perfectly in the last game, a loss puts me out.

I have a goal disallowed, so do they, I go 0-1 down, pull it back to 2-1 on 85 minutes... 2-2 on 90... 2-3 on 93. In all my time playing this game, I've never been closer to throwing the laptop out of the window.

2010/11 season finished, and it ended in glory! Won the Premier League with Palace after a close race with Manchester United with the title being decided on the final day. We were equal on points, with United having better goal difference, but a 4-0 win away at Liverpool for us and a draw away at QPR for United saw us crowned champions. We also played in the FA Cup final, but lost 2-1 to Arsenal.

Signing of the season was this guy, joined for £230k from Preston last summer. Started the season in the reserves, but came up to the first team when I had a run of injuries around Christmas, and formed a good midfield partnership with Delplanque. might try to snatch him to my next club, whichever club that turns out to be.
http://img28.imageshack.us/img28/3276/roachp.jpg

Also took over the English national team this season, currently 2nd in our EC qualification group behind Greece. Going to resign from Palace after the season to make the wait for a D job faster, England will give me something to do at least.

Summary of my career so far:

2001/2: Arsenal - 1st in Premier League, won both domestic cups
2002/3: Brentford - 1st in 2. Division
2003/4: Brentford - 1st in 1. Division, won the FA Cup
2004/5: Brentford - 2nd in Premier League
2005/6: Brentford - 2nd in Premier League, won the FA Cup
2006/7: Brentford - 1st in Premier League
2007/8: Brentford - 2nd in Premier League, won the FA Cup and the Champions League (was looking for a C job this season)
2008/9: Crystal Palace - 1st in 2. Division, won the Football League Trophy
2009/10: Crystal Palace - 1st in 1. Division
2010/11: Crystal Palace - 1st in Premier League



Now to find a d-club to manage...

Edit: For a second I thought I had a possible new job only 3 days after the season finished, as Rotherham appointed a Doncaster coach as their new manager. Alas, it was only a coach, not the manager, so the managerial job there is not available. Bugger.

I am Brighton and Hove Albion.

Just quickly looking over this squad I found enough good players to satisfy my needs. The board expect us to battle bravely against relegation but judging by the start we've made I'm quite confident we can challenge for a promotion, assuming the majority of my players stay fit.

I got rid of 5 players: 2 goalies and 3 fullbacks ( who are redundant in my system). Brought in Ben Foster (£1m) and 2 free fransfers, Luca Mezzano (a versatile defender/midfielder) and the decent dmc Falvien Belsen.

Because the squad is small I recalled almost everyone who was away on loan and so far this decision is more than justified. Take a look at the amazing early season stats of this guy, who returned from Sheff Utd to become my lone striker:

http://img607.imageshack.us/img607/3342/hoskins.jpg (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/607/hoskins.jpg/)

So, after a worrying start in which we surrended good leads to Derby and Blackpool, and just scraped through against Stevenage in League Cup round 1, our progress thus far has been exceptional, and we remain unbeaten 8 games into the league season.

Okay so we've hit a fairly rocky spell of form which coincided with the sale of our best midfielder Kazenga LuaLua to Tottenham for £4.7m. I really don't think he's worth that kind of cash so I let him go, however, I failed to buy an adequate replacement (John Oster on a free transfer) and we let slip our lead in the Championship and are now 2nd and dropping all the time

My hopes of a magical cup run were ended early on when we drew Liverpool in both the League and FA Cup. Needless to say we had no chance, but the ties have helped with financial stability.

Table stands like this with two thirds of the year done:

http://img192.imageshack.us/img192/9428/leaguegame30.jpg (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/192/leaguegame30.jpg/)

Main aim now is to cling on to automatic promotion spot whilst keeping hold of the thinning supply of decent players in the squad. About to resume playing now.

EDIT: wooooooooo!

Currently playing with Juve. I finished 1st in the first season, won the Italian Cup and now my goal is to win the Champions League. I restrict myself by only buying players who have the Italian nationality (first or second, doesn't matter really).

Funny thing is I bought De Rossi from AS Roma halfway during the season:

and the first competition match in the second half of the season was home against AS Roma. De Rossi scored in 30 minutes (!) a hattrick against his old club and finally scored 4 goals in the match. I thought this was pretty hilarious stuff. :D

Finished our first season in the Premier League and my word, what a chaotic season it was: our maverick style guarenteeing shedloads of goals shipped and plenty more scored, making us, in effect the new Blackpool.

First off, I bought several key players to make sure we would avoid yo-yoing straight back down. Only Ben Foster, Vicente and Will Hoskins would survive as regular starters from the Championship winning side. In came these lot:

http://img714.imageshack.us/img714/4599/transfersseason2.jpg

I had my hopes up after hammering Everton 1-0 on matchday 1 (us 16 shots, them zero), and similarly after we upset Man City away (4-3 - Hoskins bagging a hat trick), however after christmas we faded away due to injuries and loss of form to key players, though happily we recovered to finish the season strongly:

http://img856.imageshack.us/img856/2640/leagueseason2.jpg

Really irked at missing out on Champions League football by such a fine margin, but can't really claim to deserve it. Too many fluke wins right the way through. So Uefa Cup it is.

Got a cash injection mid way through, choosing to keep most of the cash in the bank and splash out on defender Diego Polenta just before the deadline. The idea is to have him replace the injury stricken and ageing Jamie Carragher for next season.

Hoskins continues to shine in the top league, and the media outlets got their wish when he was called up and capped for England.

Hehe thanks AMC! yes, i agree our defence is poor. But being Brighton, a low reputation club, and me being unfamiliar with this new database I really tried in vain to sign anyone decent. This new season I signed David Navarro on a free but no-one else, and Coventry City just nabbed my captain Jamie Carragher as their manager so I'm f*****. Hoskins is now club record goalscorer but now has competition in the form of Artjoms Rudnevs, a striker I signed from Polish side Lech Poznam, and his attributes are blinding.... I'm just gonna intergrate him from off the bench for now though...

thanks for the feedback ;)

Bruma is a beast, bought him in my game with Deportivo la Coruña, i had in mind rotating him as a winger on both sides, since Guardado and Bruno Gama were superb the season before

3 league games after, he was my best player in the team and decided to sell Bruno Gama, now he is on my 2nd season and still on top form, 21 years old, 7'88 and 7'90 in two seasons



I think i've got quite a good squad, some good players now with Adam Lallana, Lazar Markovic, Vaclav Kadlec, Diego Rubio, Lorenzo Crisetig, David Addy, Marc Bartra

Being able to challenge Barcelona on league for 2nd consecutive year shocks me, yet i don't have other good players that barcelona signed on my team, like Dayro Moreno or Guoni Fjoluson, a lucky game scouting in this game, with hidden stats and first time playing this patch for me

Raced through season 3, so here's a quick update, as brief as possible.

Unbelievably, for the 3rd straight year we were eliminated from the league cup in R3 at the hands of Liverpool. Better fortunes in the FA cup, progressing all the way to the semi-final where we were defeated on penalties by a stubborn Manchester United. In the Uefa Cup (european debut for Brighton) we made it past Slovan Bratislava and Hearts before being hammered by Schalke in the 3rd round. Disappointing.

In the league things got off to another good start, and form reached its peak when we met Newcastle - this match being the high-point of my reign so far. Not sure I've ever had so many 10/10 performances from my players in one game.

http://img441.imageshack.us/img441/2451/brighton7newcastle2.jpg

And so with new signings Jeremain Lens, Guillermo Molins, Guido Hernan Pizzaro and Artjoms Rudnevs all adding a touch of genuine class to the team (Lens being particularly outstanding with 18 goals and 18 assists) we climbed the table to a remarkable 3rd place, and well deserved European qualification. Delighted with the squad, but it's going to need some injection of quality if we are to avoid another repeat of the Schalke debacle.

http://img52.imageshack.us/img52/5024/leagueseason3.jpg

Also, after 3 seasons with Brighton I still don't have a major trophy to my name, and this is one of only two complaints I have so far, the other being that Real Madrid activated the release clause of my best defender Diego Polenta mid way through, and I was powerless to prevent him leaving for £8.75m.

In the youth side too there's hope for the next generation of players at Brighton with players like Andy Rogers coming through. I doubt I'm going to here to see them come of age as I have decided that, whatever happens this season, I will leave Brighton at the end of it after 4 years at the American Express Community Stadium - lol.

3rd's a great achievement mate, and that Newcastle result was very nice indeed! Still letting more in than I'd like though (more than one a game on average). Rogers looks tasty, shame about his pace and acceleration though.

I have seen the fella play 3 times, he was playing at Zete and since it is not far from Budapest, we went down there with the mates when my dear DVTK was visiting Zalaegerszeg.

He seemed to be good as a youngster, but there were at least 20 players like him in the division. (I mean promising players on hungarian top tier level, but nothing exceptional)

Resigned as manager of Brighton on the same day as we clinched the Premier League title (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/849/leagueseason4game38.jpg/). Manchester United royally messed up on th very last day, losing to Fulham having only needed a point, us clinging on to a one goal victory away at Chelsea*

Having failed to get the best out of a squad of excellent players (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/37/squadseason4.jpg/), and after weakly succumbing to Newcastle in our only Cup final (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/259/facupfuckup.jpg/), the time was right to pack it in.

My managerial stats, honestly, are not what I had hoped.

Aaah tough luck that. Grats on the win with Brighton though, and good job almost getting promoted with a small money-lacking club!

I've not had time to play much lately, did a whole season with only England and almost half a season with my new club, Derby County.
Won the European Championship with England, defeating Germany in the final, and resigned after the EC was done since I got a club job just after the league season ended. Derby lost their manager to Middlesbrough, and I was given the job of taking them back up into the top flight. They'd spent most of the game in 1st division, with a one season spell in the 2nd, and the last two seasons they finished 8th in 1. Division. Decent squad and some money indicated that this should be less challenging than the last two clubs, and so far it's looking good. Top of the table after 17 games, with 6 points down to Southampton at 2nd. My only signing is a backup drc, while I've thinned out the squad a bit both by actively selling people (lots of deadwood to get rid of) and accepting offers for players that aren't key players.

I started up a save with Bristol Rovers. For now, home rules:
- I must use non-wibwobbed, "stock" tactics
- there can be 3 non-british in the squad at maximum

Bristol had a bad squad in the english 4th division, small (somewhere between 10-15k) stadium, and according to my experience they have bad rep. (=noone goood enough wants to sign)

The season started strange, as even before I played a match there were like 6-8 players who wanted new contracts OR simply wanted to move to a bigger club. I made some money luckily, as these unhappy players were sold (they were crap anyway) and I also accepted bids for pretty much everyone except for a few (4-5) players who seemed to be very good for the division..
I signed a few players, all from free: Smith (young scottish GK), Drummond (young n.irish goalkeeper), Mitchell (young scottish midfielder), Ferrari (veteran italian defender).
My scouts found some really good buys, unfortunately, with 0 dollars available for transfers, 0$ available for signing on fees, and a maximum player wage of 1300$/week, I had really tough time to strengthen the team...

The season itself was surprisingly easy, two of my original players (Carayol and Zebroski) went crazy on the wings, accompanied by a steady performance from Smith (young GK) and defensive pair Virgo-Ferrari, we simply won the division 2 matches before the end!

To celebrate promotion to DIV2, I had to sell Carayol (Preston), Zebroski (Hull), Virgo (Stoke) and Smith (Stoke). :wha:
They had a 750k release fee set in their contract, they were not willing to extend without it, so I lost them once the season was over.

For DIV2 I have to build a new team from scratch: who I really trust in my present lineup is Ferrari, noone else. At least I have about 1,5M to spend on signings (from the 4 sold players). Should be doable, let's see.


edit: Bristol Rovers seems to be a real hellhole for a manager, so I applied for a few jobs (Derby, Millwall, Dundee) unfortunately, noone wanted me :(

Good stuff. I find that happening with players wanting away and making unreasonable contract demands as well. It seems to be those who start the game with a club. When I ship them out and sign my own players over time, I have no problems with that kind of stuff, so my advice is: renew contracts for the good players whose deals are up at the end of the season and transfer list all the troublemakers :D

Yeah, there is a moment after 15-20 good matches, when you see that 'wanted' sign near your newly signed players.
I check who is interested, and hope for Torquay and Dag&Red. It turns out that Arsenal and Stoke is interested. Crap...

I've just started my 1st proper game on the latest update that I am determined to see through - at the same club without getting a twitchy finger on the 'apply for' button when other jobs come up :)

I do worry thought that there will be too much narrative (inane rambling) and not enough CM content/appropriate screenies so was wondering whether it should be posted here or elsewhere?

For instance the club is good old Aston Villa as I always feel guilty when starting a new save for taking someone else's job :P & this time there are no vacancies to start with apart from Darlington and England lol.
I decided to take a punt on the next best thing which caught my eye being an insecure manager and Alex McLeish at Villa.

I thought he should be possibly sacked anyway so didn't lose much sleep over it and immediately had visions of buying a new centre back as Collins and Dunne are no spring chickens and I remember the halycon days of floppy blonde haired Danish CB Martin Laursen so subsequently set about finding a like-for-like(ish) replacement for him - where could I find such a similar player??

BRISTOL ROVERS, second season intro

I had to sell the players who got us promoted to Division 2, but at least I received some serious money for them.
I got about 1,5M dollars for the key players I had to sell, and an other million for those rubbish players who wanted a new contract.
I was given about 2M to spend from this amount, and I did spend it all :)
I bought 3 midfielders as replacements and improvements, two strikers, two defenders. Who I really have hopes in is a young northern irish lad called Boyce, who I signed from Crusaders.

After 8 matches I am second in division2, with 6 wins, 1 draw, 1 defeat.

The league is much harder, even the wins were tough (usually with 1 goal), so it is difficult to judge, but I say I will definietly not get relegated, a good mid table position is the minimum I expect.

Thomas Rogne though could be the Scandanavian Gary Cahill as he would have been my first choice to get back before he went elsewhere, I reckon I could prize him away from Celtic.

BRISTOL ROVERS, second season, division2 (tier3).

Doing good, leading the title race at the moment. I made some cash too with selling of my 33 y/o (!) starting keeper for 1,2 million. (snapped up the same quality from free...) edit: playing in england is always easy money. There is no other league where you can sell an old player as a lower league team for this amount. :)
Already took an exit from the league cup, but still in the FA cup. There will be a Bristol Derby on 1 January for advancing :applause:


Who are really impressive are my two imports for the attacking section. Younghusband was 240k dollars, Boyce was 300k dollars, but they worth their price for sure! (Boyce's value is 1,4M at the moment, I will definietly make a profit on the guy :D)

Time for a moan.

This season is make or break for me. I'm losing motivation. Milazzo are now in an unmanageable financial situation, £5.2m in debt and unable to sign any decent players due to the wage cap of £725k p/w!!!!!!!!!!!

I thought I had signed some players of quality who would catapult us into Serie B with the minimum of fuss after last year's near miss (see previous post), however results have gone disastrously. 4 games without a win, no strength in depth, and horribly aware of the threat of recently relegated Lecce (who have a wage bill more than 4 times the size of ours), my outlook is bleak. If we don't make it this season I will resign and that will probably be the end of this save game. I have applied for countless jobs and always they appoint some muppet from the lower leagues instead. FYI i was ranked 12th best Italian manager the last time I checked.

Currently stand 2nd in Serie C1/B having just beaten Isola Liri 3-2 despite being 2-0 down and having had 2 goals disallowed. Thats the kind of shit luck we've been having.

Younghusband was class in Div2, probably weak for the dutch league. Here he finished with nearly 20 goals (not sure), fans playor of the year and everything.


BRISTOL ROVERS, second season, div2.

Since my new signings delivered it was not hard to get promoted, I won div2 with 5 matches before the end.
I also managed to win the vans trophy, despite playing only backups all along.
The real achivement was the FA cup giant killing though: I managed to win against Chelsea (reserves...) in the best 16, and also beat Blackburn in the best 8.

Before finishing the seaon, my reputation was quite good, and I received two interesting job offers: one from already relegated Blackburn Rovers, and one from again-not-promoted West Ham United. (a few others too which I didn't consider, like Watford and Hull).
I liked both opportunities, and after some thinking took the Blackburn job.


BLACKBURN ROVERS, second season, end of season.

Already relegated, financially insecure, a squad of 40 something, players unhappy and everything. Also, that idiot Kean managed to sell Junior Hoillet to Salzburg for 1,5 million dollars (1,5M!) and Lowe to Sunderland for 2!!
Time was spent with trimming the squad, in the summer I sold everyone who
- didn't extend with a maximum wage of 30k (Yakubu, Rochina, ...)
- was unhappy or was causing disharmony (Riberio, Olsson...)
The end result was quite good, as I sold 15-20 players for about 20 million total.

There was still some class left, there are more, these are my favourites for the moment:

After playing this game for ten years, I am somewhat disappointed to see that holidaying is the guarantee for success. Won the Champions League with the Welsh team TNS yesterday. Ok, it took me 30 seasons to get past the qualification rounds, but when I finally did I won the entire thing. League results were quite amusing too, finishing season after season with final results like 99-4 goals scored/against.

Just finished my tenth season at Aachen, where I've won the Bundesliga title four years in a row despite the board's ridiculous financial constraints (£350 million in the bank but refuses to sanction an increase to the £30 million transfer budget or the measly wage allowance). Fortunately the club's increasing reputation has allowed me to hold onto key players: in earlier seasons, I kept having to change strikers every two years because they were constantly demanding transfers.

Have snatched up some very good regens. 18-year-old goalkeeper who's won the Goalkeeper of the Year award twice in a row and has become Germany's number one:

I didn't last long at Villa - was sacked before Christmas :(

We were languishing in 13th place, albeit with not much points difference between top 4 and bottom 3. Couldn't string 2 wins together and Darren Bent being injured obviously led me to play the prolific strike force of Agbonlohor and Heskey who managed 5 goals between them in 4 months!

Never even got to buy Simon Kjaer either as straight away teams start bidding for him left, right and centre, I kept trying to mug them off by outbidding them to the tune of 100m but then I got the boot :(

BLACKBURN ROVERS, third season, end of season

Pre-season was spent with stabilizing the club financially, and shaping the squad so that Blackburn can be promoted straight after their relegation.
It was the expectation of the board too.

Financial things:
- I sold everyone who was an overpaid cunt (Yakubu, 35 y/o Drogba, Rochina, etc.)
- I sold everyone who was unhappy (Riberio, Bunn)
- I sold everyone who I rated as useless (the midfielder Olsson, lots of reserve players)
- I sold everyone who I rated useful, but there were 2 better, happy players before him in the squad (Goodwillie, Hyam,...)
This basicly solved the financial problems, as I the income was about 25M $, with the wage bill drastically cut down.
Also the squad was down to managable size, about 30 fellas (from 46-47!)

Transfers in:
- Leon Best, a strong, 28y/o irish target man (free, formerly Newcastle)
- Jonny Evans, a verstile defender (centre and right), free transfer, formerly Arsenal
- club legend Brad Friedel, 42 y/o goalie to have someone in case of Robinsons injury (free, formerly Spurs)
- Chris Cartwright, english, 20y/o striker from free (regen, I dunno but I think he is Robbie Fowler's regen)
- Elliot Kebbie, english, 18 y/o right fullback from Atletico Madrid for 1M $ (he was unhappy and was transfer listed)
- James Forrest, scottish, 21 y/o midfielder from Celtic for 1,5M $ (he wanted to leave Celtic for a bigger club - WTF? a championship side is bigger then Celtic? :wha:)
- Drennan, irish, 20 y/o MLC from Aston Villa for 1,2M $ (wanted first team action)


The season:
I played a stock 4-1-3-2, the same as with Bristol, and it proved very useful. In the league we had only 1 defeat total, with about 7 or 8 draws. This squad is simply too good for the championship. There was a 9 or 10 game winning streak, and a 30 something undefeated run in the middle, until I finally lost to the Ipswich superkeeper. There was an injury crisis around the end of January, where I had to play some previously transfer listed/not needed players, and this resulted in an exit from cups: with West Brom beating us in the FA cup and Everton in the league cup.
Alltogether I could not care less for the cups, so I consider this a successful season!
Revelations: Drennan, midfielder with 15 league goals, Cartwright, rotation striker with 20 goals, Blackman, rotation striker with 15 goals, and Morten Gamst-Pedersen, with 14 goals and 11 assists (I had to sell him: I thought that noone will want a 32 y/o championship player and he was allowed a minimum release fee of 3,5M $. Newcaslte, Liverpool, Stoke and Ajax all coughed that up at the end of the season)


Squad analysis:

GKs: Robinson, Friedel, Kean
Robinson is very good, Kean is good enough to be 3rd choice, but I will have to get a rotation keeper because Friedel will retire I think. At the moment I am looking at Duisburg's welsh keeper, Wayne Hennessey.
Defense: Kebbie (dr), Olsson (d/am l), Hanley (dc), Evans (d rlc), O'Connor (d rc), Dickinson (d/m l), ramage (d rc)
As of numbers AND starting lineup, it is quite ok. Kebbie-Hanley-Evans-Olsson is premiership level. Unfortunately the 3 replacements cannot even play well on cup matches, so I need 2 cheap defenders.
Midfield: Hyam (dm), Petrovic (dm), Forrest (am rlc), Templeton (am rl), Drennan (m lc), MGP (m lc)
Quality-wise it is OK, Petrovic - Forrest - Drennan - MGP was the best in the league, but starting player MGP was sold, also rotation player Hyam. I will need 2 roation players and a quality MC.
Attack: Blackman (fc), Cartwright (sc), Best (sc), and a good random sc whose name I forgot
Did very well in the championship, but I fear this might not be enough for premiership. We will see!

Shopping list: rotation GK, rotation DC, rotation Midfielder and quality midfielder is the minimum. I have about 15M $, so it should be doable.

Premiership: Manchester City
FA cup: Chelsea
League cup: Tottenham
Bundesliga: Bayern

Wooooooooooooooooo I can finally leave behind the stress and strain and the complete and utter nightmare that was my 18 month stint at Milazzo. After around a gazillion job applications I recieve an offer, and a pretty good one too! Financially stable Serie B outfit Tritium are taking a chance on me and I don't intend to let them down!

Okay so i'm exactly one year into my new job. Here's how we're doing:

The first 6 months were over in a flash, as we coasted to a respectable top-half finish. Concerned again to see finances turning rapidly from black to red, but being Serie B, I knew I could expect a pay off at the end, and that's what I got. £700,000 to equip us with a bunch of new players. Only signed 5 or so, and let go over a dozen on free transfers and sales. First money I've spent on players since leaving Brighton two seasons ago.

So how has my first proper season managing Tritium gone so far?

Made an explosive start, winning all our qualifying games for the Coppa Italia, but worryingly lost our opening 2 league games (0-3 vs Siena, 4-5 vs Parma), putting me into a desperate panic about my defence, not for the first time in my career. An astonishing cup win (10-4 on aggregate!) over Serie A Sampdoria turned out to be the catalyst for an upturn in form and we duly went on an unbeaten run to propel us to within a couple of points of precious top 4. That's where we are now, fighting to win every match, knowing that a couple of injuries could destroy everything.

http://img801.imageshack.us/img801/6508/samp104.jpg

Lazio knocked us out in the next round.

I should also point out my shrewd use of the loan system. The club does not own very many of it's players. The upshot is that the wage bill is miniscule, the downside is we aren't really able to generate money from player sales, ever.

I agree, and in Italy it's particularly bad because of the small transfer windows.

This is really getting me excited now. Late bloomers, top of the league for the first time, peaking at the right time. I cannot afford to make a mistake.

That's my plan lol - lots of loans, and to make things a bit more fun for me I am setting a strict transfer restriction: I must not buy players for in excess of £1m :D

They gave me just £5m for tv revenue. Quite a chunk of that went on improving training facilities (which are still "awful" :/)

Just finished our first season in Serie A. Quick 36 game season, a blessing really. Our squad is what you might accurately call "thin".

Brought in Artjoms Rudnevs, out of favour at my old club Brighton but still classy, to lead our attack. Pirelli is young and although he bagged 40 goals last season, I was doubtful he could cut it against opposition such as Milan, Inter, Juve and Napoli. Also made a coup with the free transfer of Mathieu Flamini (34), and a few handy regens. The rest are loans -and mostly regens too :(

So without further ado, here's where we ended up:

http://img515.imageshack.us/img515/4814/seriea2nd.jpg

Amazing really, though it does show how uncompetitive this league has become :(. I was expecting to battle relegation or just maybe fight for a mid-table finish but this just takes the piss tbh. We have a wage bill of around £60k p/w ffs. Don't believe me? :

http://img341.imageshack.us/img341/9376/wagebill.jpg

Looking to spend all my cash on getting top-class training facilities, which the board have sanctioned, so with just loose change in the club's bank account, for the time being I forsee more of these bargain basement/loanee dealings. Pffffft.

And finally... the greatest, most satisfying performance/result so far during this career:

What tactic are you using?

shikaka
13-04-12, 09:04 AM
aussie in england career, 4th season.
Latest data update, all major nations, plus USA and Australia are loaded.

1st: Bristol Rovers, won Div3
2nd: Bristol Rovers, won Div2, won Vans Trophy
3rd: Blackburn Rovers, won Championship

4th season:
Blackburn Rovers expectations: battle against relegation

intro:
Apart from youth signings I got a backup keeper from Duisburg (welshman Wayne Hennessey), a verstile midfielder from Norwich (Pilkington) and bought back homegrown Jason Lowe from Sunderland (was out of favour with the new boss). The most important thing was to get the new contracts signed: I managed to exclude the minimum fee release from the contracts of most of my key players. Who insisted on it (Hanley and Templeton) now have 20 million dollars release fee: for that amount, they can go whenever they want :smokin:

Planned team:
Robinson - Kebbie, Evans, Hanley, Olsson - Petrovic - Forrest, Lowe, Pilkington - Cartwright, Blackman

Half season:
League cup: AGAIN disappointing, I managed to take an exit against Leyton Orient, 2 tiers below us. Not even superkeepered, they were just better then my 2nd team...
FA cup: won against Aldershot, nothing interesting until now.
League: Started in great form, quite some goals: both for and against us. This was my plan, I want to play attractive football :) Only 1 defeat until now (humilating 5-1 at Old Trafford), but 4 draws (3-3 Norwich away, 2-2 Swansea away, 3-3 Man City home). Now comfortable mid table (6th at the moment), I think I will try to win the FA cup, but with stock tactics that is always a gamble.
I have a small injury crisis: only 3 players are out but those are all defenders, and 2 - Hanley and Evans - are key to my defense. Robinson, at 35 y/o seems to be very inconsistent, he gets 7's but 9's and 4's too. I even changed him to backup after his 3 rating at Old Trafford, and Hennessey will get the chance to become 1st choice. (actually he did good on the few matches he played on).
A pleasant surprise is my strikeforce, who I didn't have confidence in. I thought they were good for championship, but will not score enough in the premiership: now my young star, Cartwright (I think he is the regen of Robbie Fowler) is already at 10 goals, and my two homegrowns - Blackman and Slew - are doing great in helping him out when he is not having a good day. Blackman has 6 and Slew has 3.
Star player until now is former Atletico Madrid B player Elliot Kebbie, who became one of the top english fullback prospects, the vultures (chelsea, arsenal, Man Utd) are already after him.

It's 2011 and Tritium have hit the big time. Last season we got out hands on the Serie A title (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/100/serieawinners.jpg/) in a closely fought contest with AC Milan. The supporters are not wrong, Lo.Fi is building something approaching a world class team on a shoestring budget. With the board springing a surprise on me in expanding our stadium by 6000 seats, and our traning facilities recieving a major revamp, many of the agreed transfer deals collapsed due to lack of cash, prompting an extensive manual scouting mission for bargains.

Among the deals done were Mexican Goalkeeper Jose Lugo (see below), Polish centre-back Lasse Sobiech, German midfielder Sven Bender, ex-Brighton player Marek Hamsik, nomadic Paraguayan winger Marcelo Estigarribia and Valencia B's Greek centre-forward Theo Markelis.

Alongside the league success was Coppa Italia glory, defeating Milan in a highly enjoyable away comeback in the QF (we were 0-3 down from the home leg), and another impressive comeback in the final against Sampdoria.

http://img36.imageshack.us/img36/7316/milan50.jpg
http://img689.imageshack.us/img689/3299/coppafinalvictory.jpg

Rudnevs (32 y/o) notched up 34 goals, having started the season disastrously with 1 in 9. He's too frail now to complete matches, but he scored 56 goals for me at Brighton and now has 50 for Tritium and should see out the remaining year on his deal. Legend.

Our capitano, Macedonian winger Filip Pivkovski, Tritium's first £1,000,000 signing, has also been stellar. A deal taking him to Lazio has already been signed sadly, and he's since left the club.

And lastly, our maverick goalkeeper, Jose Lugo. For only £700k I have unearthed a real find from the Mexican league. It is no exaggeration to say that without his consistent 8/10 performances, we'd not have won the league. Italian goalie of the year, and the best signing of mine so far.

I've barely played at all lately, but finished the 2012/13 season with Derby now and it was hugely successful. Won the 1st Division with a solid margin down to Wrexham, and also won the League Cup, securing European football as well as Premiership football next season.

2nd season, Bristol Rovers: promoted to championship, won Vans Trophy
3rd season, Blackburn Rovers: promoted to premiership
4th season, Blackburn Rovers: not won anything (FA cup - lost - final :( )


I actually did quite well with Rovers, despite using a stock formation without any wibwob...
I was in the upper half for most of the season, during the end I was cemented to 5th place. (8 points behind Arsenal who refused to lose matches, and 7 point ahead of Newcastle) I chose to concentrate on the FA cup, where I reached the final: it was 1-1 for some time, but I lost the match in overtime against City.

England: Man City

CL: Barca

edit: since City won the league too, I entered the UEFA cup. I think I will focus on that. I don't know when Rovers played in europe...
I signed only two players:
- a 24 y/o english fullback who replaces Kebbie (was sold to Arsenal. A right back is easier to find then 11 million dollars :D)
- Winston Reid as backup, to act as a rotation in my otherwise thin defense.

I started a game with Paniliakos in division B of Greece, 1st season i finished 3rd missing the promotion for 3 points, next season i finished first and i got promoted. Season 03-04 was my first in Division A and i managed to finish 4th with 47 points out of 26 games, having 10-1-2 away, qualifying in the uefa cup and losing the cup from Panathinaikos with 0-1.

Season 04-05 i finished 5th with 41 points, knocked out in the 32 of uefa by Koppenhagen 1-1 A, 2-3 H. I had knocked out Obilic 2-0 H, 2-1 A and Betis 0-1 A, 2-0 H, in the first 2 rounds. I expected something more from this season in the A division because i felt my team was strong enough and additionally PAO, AEK, Olympiakos and PAOK threw away many points so if my team hadn't done the same over weak teams, i could even win the champion! With 2 matches remaining i was 3rd but i slipped to 5th. But this is football. At least i was very strong at home and i won AEK 2-1 (2-1 for the cup also), PAO 1-0. 2-2 vs Olympiakos and 1-1 vs PAOK with 10 players.

I played in intertoto as 5th and i knocked out Gorica 1-0 A, 0-0H, Atalanta 0-2 A, 3-0 H, Varzim 1-0 H, 1-1 A, Sampdoria 4-0 H, 2-1 A and Salzburg 2-1 A and 3-2 H so i eventually qualified for the UEFA cup after a long midsummer struggle where my players were veeeery tired! I started with 1-0 vs Sileks and a win at home in the A division and i am through to the next round in the cup.

I prefer to play with a 4-1-3-2 and sometimes 4-3-2-1. I have messed up a bit with the wib/wob but the tactic seems realistic and not unbeaten so i like it. My core players are the new in the team Chiotis as a GK with Dellios behind him, Antonssen and Adamidis DL, Dellios DR [i tried to sell Pensaari but i finally loaned him and i use as a back up the young Moran and Maas. A new DR is coming in the mid season from Norway. Pensaari wasn't so good, after 3 seasons he was close to 6.50 with a few assists, Dellios is already better. But i am sentimental and i know he loved the team and i want to see him be a champion so when he returns i may use him a bit and hopefully he will win a championship in his career :) ] Dellas (you should sign this guy, trust me), Adamos are the basic DCs, Macheridis is a reliable DM and this season i also bought Van Der Schaaf from Vitesse, my 3 midfielders are Sveen, Heikkila and Charalambakis with amazing dribbling and creativity in the game. My strike force consists of Joao Paiva, Harasimowicz, Moukoko and Andreas Kallstrom. I must not forget my promising DC from my academy Papagiannopoulos and the incredible Adoniou, also from my academy, an AMC that big teams already want, he is 19 now. I may post a screen of him.

My goal is to win the title this season so i will let you know. I also intend to trust young players and making them big names. For example, Antonssen was called up in the Norway squad when he played for me and Heikkila was called in the Finland squad.

Only stock tactics, only 3 non-nationals

1st season, Bristol Rovers: promoted to Div 2
2nd season, Bristol Rovers: promoted to championship, won Vans Trophy
3rd season, Blackburn Rovers: promoted to premiership
4th season, Blackburn Rovers: not won anything (5th in premiership)
5th season, Blackburn Rovers: won league cup, 6th in premiership
In short:
- 6th in the premiership
- won league cup
- lost FA cup final (again in the final!)
- out in UEFA cup semis
The problem was that during March-April I had a crazy amount of matches, and most of the time it was a challenge to find 10 outfield players with more then 85% fitness. The UEFA cup defeat happened because of this, as I won the home match comfortably, I was thinking it is OK to play the reserves at Anfield. Wow, I was a 'bit' wrong :)

The team is pretty good, the financials are ok, so after this season I leave.
My problem is that I grew quite attached to players, and really, apart from the goalkeeper section I don't want to sell anybody. I know that my left midfield (Mikey Drennan and Anthony Pilkington), and attacking section (Cartwright, Best, Blackman, Slew) is most likey not enough to win the premiership, but I do not want to sell otherwise good guys.
A manager who can fire these guys is needed here, I will not take the necessery steps.


I resigned and by September I was hired by Sydney FC in Australia. I had enough english football for now :)

Just finished my 6th season with Montrose. I've won the SPL three times in a row after three successive promotions and I've had two European ventures, reaching the semi's of the UEFA Cup and the quarters of the CL.

My finances are very good (£35m) but my wage limit of around £3k is still low. Most of my players have minimum release clauses so it's quite hard to keep my squad intact.

Fed up of the vultures trying to steal my best players. Must have had about 100 offers last season especially from Rangers & Celtic.

My reputation is world class in Scotland but I was overlooked for the Rangers position last season in favour of some nobody who was managing Bath City in non league football. :((

Sad to report that after a happy and successful 4 1/2 years the Tritium fairytale has ended.

In my final year we grabbed another league and cup double, and had the chance of a Champions League Semi Final snatched from us in highly unfortunate circumstances. Man City, helped by two man of the match displays from Joe Hart, and us having a crucial away goal disallowed in the 1st leg, robbed us of the chance of glory. I'll never know what could have been in this competition.

So just days after the season ended I applied for and was offered the job of managing giants Internazionale. The club had been stagnating somewhat, with average players on big wages and no major silverware for years. They've been in the UEFA cup for the past five seasons. Even so, this was definite career progression for me, and with £78m transfer budget available I jumped at the chance to get a major spending binge out of my system. Although I didn't plan to be here for long, it was the right time to make the step up, and a blessed relief not to be worrying about money all the time for once in my career...

Lo.Fi
23-04-12, 10:52 PM
....continued....

Spending big is just what I did. £91m on new players and staff, and £60m gained from sales of 70% of the first team. From the squad I inherited only Luca Caldirola the club captain and longest serving player, Luka Kranjc, Joel Obi and brazilian forward Wallyson remained in the first eleven. Otherwise the personnel have been replaced by cheaper, hungrier and more experienced foreign players, none of them regens.

A 35 year old Wayne Rooney was on the books when I came in but his contract expired and he left on a free. That was my cue for making the biggest splash of money so far on a single player, and what a player! Mercurial £24m Mexican centre-forward Marco Bueno:

http://img593.imageshack.us/img593/2525/buenoqv.jpg

Here's how we lined up:

http://img851.imageshack.us/img851/6382/lineupcropped.jpg

Needless to say a Serie A championship followed, as did the Coppa Italia, meaning I have won both trophies back-to-back with two different clubs. But on a sour note, my nemeses Manchester City thwarted us again in Europe for the 2nd season running....

1st season, Bristol Rovers: promoted to Div 2
2nd season, Bristol Rovers: promoted to championship, won Vans Trophy
3rd season, Blackburn Rovers: promoted to premiership
4th season, Blackburn Rovers: not won anything (5th in premiership)
5th season, Blackburn Rovers: won league cup, 6th in premiership
6th season, Sydney FC: win australian league open
7th season, Los Angeles Galaxy: won western conference and MLS Open cup (lost in MLS semi-final)
8th season, West Ham United: ongoing

Sydney: After getting defeated in the FA cup final again, and not winning the UEFA cup, I thought my time at Rovers is over. Resigned and got the Sydney FC job in Australia. I made a few signings, most of them were free or very cheap, this improved the squad greatly. I think this was my best season like ever. With a stock 4-1-3-2 tactics the opening stage was: 37 wins, 0 draws, 2 defeats, 120 goals scored. This league is a joke, the AI teams cannot really cope with foreigner restrictions.
The problem came in a form of a bug: there is simply no closing stage an final scheduled in Australia, so there is no (new) champion either. I was frustrated because of this so I resigned.

Los Angeles Galaxy:: The galacticos were looking for a manager, as they didn't reach the playoffs in the last 6 seasons. I accepted (with them already played 8 matches, from which 7 were defeats). The squad looked quite crap to be honest, but it seems that every MLS team is the same: with the likes of Friedel, Onyewu, Holden, Donovan, Dempsey, Bocanegra, etc. are either very close to retirement (34+) or already retired (to return as youngsters with determination below 5), the competition is happening between americans who should rather be working as bartenders or accountants. No matter, I still managed to go to the playoffs by winning the western conference. I lost in the semis to Colorado though, while winning the MLS open cup against Chivas USA. With no real possibility to find decent opposition in MLS, I went back to England:
With about 10-11 matches into the season West Ham United sacked their manager: currently they are sitting on the 22th place in League1, with an unhappy and old squad.



Fck, I just realized that in 7,5 seasons I only won an english league cup and an american cup...

Hey there's no shame in that. Makes for a more interesting game when you're not winning every trophy available. That's why I'm looking to leave italy asap. Tbh i'm surprised you got the West Ham job though. in my game even 3rd division english clubs won't touch me, despite the fact i'm ranked 7th in the world. What did you set your nationality as?

Australian bug is very annoying. i agree with that

All down to nationality mate (also check your CA/PA in a saved game editor).

Agree with Lo Fi, makes for better reading when you aren't winning everything in sight, and I like it when people try their hand in another country and in Australia and America you've not gone for the usual places which is nice to see shikaka.

Get West Ham back to the Premiership now!

I usually change my nationality when I want to leave.
For example when I realized that the australian closing stage will not be scheduled at all, I looked around and identified two interesing countries (open jobs which interested me were: Los Angeles, DC United, Sao Paolo and Flamengo), and I simply set my nationality to USA/Brazil, applied and got one of the four.
When it turned out that the MLS is very uncompetitive* I left my brazilian nationality and set scottish because Hibernians didn't have a manager. Strange, that as brazilian/scottish I got West Ham first.

*really, my semi-final - where I was defeated 2 times by penalty shootout - only happened because I signed 4 good foreigners: a russkie goalie, a finnish striker, a canadian striker and an english midfielder. They simply destroyed the league.



like it when people try their hand in another country and in Australia and America you've not gone for the usual places which is nice to see shikaka.

Both are fun places to manage. But I think it is better to start there: 7 years in the americans are very weak or badly regened oldies so it is very easy to win.
Australia is better, with quality players to get from inside the league (AND amateur aussie/kiwi teams!), just that it is not good when you cannot win at all because of the bug.

When I think back my most fun games were in non-EU, foreigner restriction countries. (brazil, argentina, russia, croatia, poland - I have yet to play in Korea or Japan). It is - imho - great fun to identify the 4-5 positions where you will surely not get a good croatian/russian and HAVE TO buy a foreigner. You also have to play big money for russians, brazilians, polish, etc. who are worse then those foreigners who you could get for free (but would take up a very important foreigner place) :)

West Ham: somehow, I really feel that they belong to the premiership, so I will try. It is shaping nicely, I got two good strikers for pittance:

Trying my hardest not to be seduced by all the hot looking regens floating around I have moulded a tight but very old team at Inter. Without a doubt these guys could fall off a cliff at any moment (average age 31+) but for the time being they're winning everything in sight.

http://img859.imageshack.us/img859/3673/agesk.jpg

Very nearly signed Messi, however I delayed too long in order to sign Phil Jones (board would not increase the transfer money available), so I incrementally increased the class of the squad with these chaps:

Another Serie A title (the most convincing so far), and many records set:

A fourth Coppa Italia in a row, and finally, not before time, the one I was really aiming for:

http://img135.imageshack.us/img135/2080/clwinbarca.jpg

We were entered into the World Club Cup competition as hosts, and that begins at the start of the new season, so I'm very much looking forward to that. I sense i can clean that up and then move abroad (i'm ranked 1 in the world :D).

Never really got started this season and went straight back down to the second division after just one season in the first. Must try harder next time.

A real fight against relegation, when you are actually on the bottom, (not "fight against relegation" and finish 6th) is one of the best experiences this game has to offer. It sucks when you do get relegated though.
Next season you will get back up!

Well done Lo.Fi perfect time to move abroad once you've won that WCC with Inter.

Hard luck on relegation adnams, I'm sure you'll bounce back up first time though!

Definitely agree with this. Had a new game a while back with Cannes where I sold the whole squad to raise some cash and replaced them all with a load of talented teenagers. Unfortunately, I completely misjudged the level of the league and spent the majority of that first season fighting the sack and relegation. The next season, everyone was a year older, a year better and I got a few decent players in on loan, and walked the division.

That first season though was probably the most enjoyable one I can remember on any game for ages.

Unbloodybelievable. The little buggers have gone and done us again :doh:

Won the league again, smashed my former club for six and fell at the final hurdle in this years CL (massive midfielder injury crisis at the crunch goes some way to explain this, and the fact that the team is really too old now).

Striker Julio Furch, originally signed as backup when I took charge, turned out to be the main man, especially in the 4 month absence of Bueno (ungoing surgery for most of the campaign) I highly recommend him as a relatively cheap target man for medium/good clubs - he'll take you to the next level. Barca have just snapped him up at the age of 35.

The big news though is that I've found a route way back into England withour changing my nationality. West Ham (sorry shikaka!) wanted me so I jumped at the chance. I see this as a great opportunity for experimentation (i'll explain in next post) and the timing is perfect as their manager just promoted the team via playoffs to Div 1 and hopped up north to fill the vacant Sunderland managers position.
Bingo!

Back in the second division after a really bad first season in the first division we had a fantastic season and finished top of the league and winning the Vans Trophy defeating Wigan in the final.

1st season, Bristol Rovers: promoted to Div 2
2nd season, Bristol Rovers: promoted to championship, won Vans Trophy
3rd season, Blackburn Rovers: promoted to premiership
4th season, Blackburn Rovers: not won anything (5th in premiership)
5th season, Blackburn Rovers: won league cup, 6th in premiership
6th season, Sydney FC: win australian league open
7th season, Los Angeles Galaxy: won western conference and MLS Open cup (lost in MLS semi-final)
8th season, West Ham United: promoted to championship


WEST HAM:
About half season was spent with judging players, I had to sell lots of players: some had offers, other I "sold" for 0, noone wanted to pay for them. In the end I sold about 20-25 players...
Luckily I still had my old shortlists: I signed a former player of mine (Doe Davis) from Sydney FC, a striker who I wanted to sign for LA (Doyle), a left back and a striker who I wanted to sign when I was in Blackburn, also my former striker from Rover (Leon Best)...
I experimented a bit with 3-4-3, but in the end - when my homegrown right back was fit and bought a left back - I changed to 4-4-2. Basicly easy promotion:
(out of this, 7 defeats, 2 draws and a win is not "mine")

Plenty of decent games in progress on this thread. Good effort chaps :)

I've recently started a career game as ambitious money grubbing manager Harry Climber.

He's got a few restrictions:

Can only sign players that come from the country he's managing in
Can only use 442. He can wib/wob though he has no idea what he's doing :)
Can only apply for jobs at clubs that are higher in the league
Can only apply for a new job after one calendar year at the current club

Season One - He took the reigns at Conference club Weymouth. With an unknown reputation and no money in the bank, he was unable to sign any new players and struggled to keep a talentless and restless squad together. He eventually achieved a modest 15th place finish.

Season Two - Still at Weymouth, he brought in a few cheap players to plug the holes left by those who had left on a free transfer after refusing to sign new contracts. Sitting at 11th place on Christmas Eve, he jumped ship to Third Division side Grimsby, who were placed third in the league having played two games more than the clubs around them. He replaced Andy Hessenthaler, who had left to manage Second Division side Swansea.The Grimsby board has asked for the team to finish the season with a respectable league position. Harry has his eye on a playoff place.

A very enjoyable game so far :)

It looks really bad in reality for my home team Hansa Rostock so I decided to start a save and make myself a bit happier. I use the March update btw, so the squad is quite up to date. The team looked solid, nothing special, but solid enough. The board didn't ask for much, just a solid season, completely without any ambition. I didn't sign a single new player till the winter break because I just couldn't lure anyone who would give the team a boost. So I had to trust the ability of the current squad. I decided to play a pretty simple 4-3-1-2 system with three DMZ's and one AM with a free-role as Marek Mintal is by far the best player in the team. I developed the tactic myself, so it's not a super tactic as I have actually no idea how to set up a strong wib/wob tactic or how to to do this properly. I even don't want to know it. I always try to create a tactic in a way that it makes sense from a football point of view as it's for me a Football Manager and therefore I want to imagine at least it is real football, without thinking about if this or that is right against the KI.

Anyway, the season went more or less well, it was a real roller-coaster. We had some big wins against our rivals Cottbus and St. Pauli, but also awful defeats. Overall we were quite dependent on the day form of Marek Mintal. If he had a bad day, the whole team had a bad day and we couldn't create chances. Well, he had many good days however, scored 18 goals. Also the young 17 year old striker Nils Quaschner did well, scored 10 goals. But no other player scored in double-figures and we were the fifth worst team of the Leauge in terms of goal scoring. Our defence did fairly well though. During the second half of the season we had a couple of bad results, it didn't work well for us and during a 1-3 defeat against Fürth I decided at half-time to do something different, try a more attacking approach, with three strikers, and only one DMZ but two ZM's. We did well in this second half, and I decided to deploy this tactic in the next games from now on. It worked wonders. Even though we were still notably weaker while Mintal was out with a injury. But we lost only one game from the last eight games of the season, and that was a 0-1 in Frankfurt against Eintracht, the eventual League winner. We achieved the promoting at the end, finished 3rd in the League, and I'm pretty proud about that as it came with the original squad and my own tactic. I only signed one player through the whole season, in the winter break Dominic Chatto from Häcken, Sweden.

http://img135.imageshack.us/img135/5443/tabfch.jpg


We have to strengthen the squad notably though. With the current team I'd fear the worst for the new season in the top-flight. We need two decent strikers, definitely new fullbacks, as Pelzer is far to weak for the 1. Bundesliga and Schyrba will leave us for a 2 Mio € move to Stuttgart...

Two thirds of the way into my 12th season, and my first back in England since leaving Brighton in 2005. West Ham are hovering around the playoffs having made a pretty inauspicious start since being promoted back into Division One last season. But this isn't about instant success. I have a longer term plan:

I want to bring back the famous West Ham youth academy and develop a team exclusively from the homegrown regens who are given to me. To this end, I'm not signing any more players after this season, instead I pledge to give a chance to all Hammers graduates and in 3 years time field a first eleven entirely local. This could go badly wrong. For example the DMC and goalkeeping positions are vital to my setup and pretty specialised, so if nobody is available I will have to retrain them. I'm also relying on a healthy quantity of boys coming through each season from the youth setup.

I signed 6 players to fill holes this season: Sven Bender (35 years old) and a swedish regen named Frederikssen to play DMC, veteran Jack Wilshere (33) and Iceland winger Andri Albertsson to supplement the midfield and Modou Barrow, a Gambian striker (32) signed from Norrkoping to bag us some goals. I also brought back my ex-Tritium defender Raffaele de Lucia to shore up a pretty desperate defence. I've sold several of the club's best players for big money (£9m in all).

Luckily my academy has already been at work and I've been handed two excellent looking goalkeepers (Byron Cooper already handed the no. 1 jersey following the sale of his predecessor to Norwich) and some promising midfielders. Time will tell whether these will be good enough if and when we reach the Premier League, but it is a hopeful start.

I am in the middle of season 2086/87 i have been with Watford all the way through. Before you ask yes i have been sacked a few times but generally have been doing well. Here is the good bit i have kept a record of all the players that have ever played for me and their stats. lovingly kept on a spread sheet. I can send a full version if anyone wants one. Is anyone else doing the same or still play consecutive seasons?

great idea i have tried this with watford but never quite got the volume of talent needed. I now look at only signing under 22yr olds bit of a kop out but working ok

I am in the middle of season 2086/87 i have been with Watford all the way through. Before you ask yes i have been sacked a few times but generally have been doing well. Here is the good bit i have kept a record of all the players that have ever played for me and their stats. lovingly kept on a spread sheet. I can send a full version if anyone wants one. Is anyone else doing the same or still play consecutive seasons?

Fair play mate, 85 seasons is immense - more than double the furthest I've got in a game (also with Watford on odb :D). I would not have the patience to collect all that data. Screenshots and the occasional print filing are about my limit, but i'm impressed by your list. Any chance you could upload the savegame somewhere? It would be a bit of a curiosity but also probably a verrry large file, i'm guessing.

Are you Watford fan or just playing with them for their great youth academy and history?

Thanks. I'm afraid i am a watford fan so i was stuck with them. never liked the idea of jumping from one club to another like some do. i wouldlove to upload the save game but haven't a clue how to. My excel spread sheet is massive but would upload that as well i knew how..any tips??

You can go to sendspace.com or mediafire.com, click browse and select the .sav file from your computer. If it takes too long then don't worry about it :ok:

Good to have a fellow Hornet on the forums ;)

Go to your save game in your main Champ file right click on your save and then choose the option below:

http://img849.imageshack.us/img849/6673/72012691.png (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/849/72012691.png/)

This will create a Zipped (Smaller version) of your save, then follow what lo.fi has advised above but choose the Zipped file to upload, wont take half as long :ok:

I am in the middle of season 2086/87 i have been with Watford all the way through. Before you ask yes i have been sacked a few times but generally have been doing well. Here is the good bit i have kept a record of all the players that have ever played for me and their stats. lovingly kept on a spread sheet. I can send a full version if anyone wants one. Is anyone else doing the same or still play consecutive seasons?

That is absolutely immense mate! I barely manage a couple of seasons sometimes :redface:

I also wish I had the patience to stick with one team and to keep written records of the game rather than just the odd screenie :)

I might try and use your Watford record as inspiration to really get stuck into a particular save!

Started a game in the lowest division in Italy: the Serie C2/C. I chose the "C" area because it has all the teams of southern Italy :) (best food, friendlier people, best weather and so on)

Managing US Vibonese Calcio at the moment. I will take them as far as my managerial abilities will allow, or until I land my dream job at Torino.

Doing surprisingly well, sitting in a comfortably second place in the league after 20 matches. Catanzaro is 1st, they have a lot of money and overall good players, I think they are over-powered and should be at least a league up.

I sold my best player (the Senegalese striker Doukara) in the beginning of the season, he was worth 130K Euros and Internacional de Porto Alegre bought him for 900K! Then I sold my third GK for 250K in January. It comes as no surprise that the Board of Directors love me :)

To make life in southern Italy even sweeter there was this kid in the reserve squad (Vincenzo Coco, Striker, 20) which turned out to be an absolute cracker. He has 17 goals in 13 matches (I play a non wibble-wobble 4-3-2-1 formation) :)

1st season, Bristol Rovers: promoted to Div 2
2nd season, Bristol Rovers: promoted to championship, won Vans Trophy
3rd season, Blackburn Rovers: promoted to premiership
4th season, Blackburn Rovers: not won anything (5th in premiership)
5th season, Blackburn Rovers: won league cup, 6th in premiership
6th season, Sydney FC: win australian league open
7th season, Los Angeles Galaxy: won western conference and MLS Open cup (lost in MLS semi-final)
8th season, West Ham United: league 1 winner
9th season, West Ham United: championship winner

The championship season was quite strange. Before starting, I sold ter Stegen for 2,5million dollars, and a few oldies.
Also, I lost my two key midfielders, Cameron and McGeogh because Cardiff and Hull coughed up their minimum release fee (7,5 million and 5,5 million). This caused a bit of a problem midway through the season, when I had to adapt my tactic to the new signings.
I secured playoff early, title win in the 45th match of the season.

Let's see how we will do in the premiership...



Fans PoY, with 12 goals, 13 assists:

Second season with Hansa Rostock is over. The first season in the 1. Bundesliga after our promotion. I had to make some radical changes, meaning almost all of last seasons hero's had to leave the club. We were lucky enough to achieve what we achieved but with last seasons team we wouldn't have a chance to stay in the League. Fortunately it was easy enough to sell most of the players for good money. Overall I sold 21 players for €16,35 million, the highest fee was for Tom Weilandt. €2 million - I wanted to keep him, as I thought he's a very talented young player, though he wanted to leave the club for a better team. Okay, there you go... to VFL Osnabrück, 3. Division...

I gave away almost every player of the squad, so I needed obviously a new team. There was enough money available and I was shopping around the globe. I made 19 signings for €19,75 million, plus two loan players. Top signing was Nils Petersen from Bayern Munich for €4,3 million. He did fairly well through the season, though it were the bargain buys which surprised most. Vujadin Savic did well as a DMC, he came for only €325k from Bordeaux and also Bastian Müller from Bayern II did very well and cost us only €575k. Our best player of the season - and fans PoY - was Anton Putsila. Good value for money with 14 scorer points (6 goals,8 assists). Million signings De Sutter and Anale were a bit disappointing in contrast. Overview about all the signings:

The season itself was an up and down. The first half was difficult, only three wins, we were in big danger, we didn't score goals. I tried different tactics, started the season with one striker, later with three strikers... it didn't work well for us. The second half of the season was, however, much better. Alle the individuals started to get finally a real team, and after I deployed a 4-1-2-1-2 system we won some important games, had two runs of five unbeaten games in a row and secured 1. Bundesliga status a few days before the end of the season. I'm happy with that, though not with the amount of points we gathered. That can be easily not good enough in another season. We also have to work on our home form. Only three wins at the Ostseestadion are awful, we were one of the best away sides though. We've also have to score more goals. 31 goals is second worst in the League.

Tactic and team:

http://img838.imageshack.us/img838/328/teamfch2.jpg


I have to strengthen the squad, that's for sure. Next season looks a difficult one. We made already one important signing with Ivan Perisic from Dortmund. We signed him for €6,5 million and he shall become the AMC in my system. I'm pretty happy about this signing as it adds some quality to the team and I found it difficult to sign players of that calibre so far. It's not an easy job at Hansa. It's demanding, but fun. My goal for next season is a solid season without worrying about relegation. The board would be happy as long as we fight bravely against relegation. Well, we'll see...

I have quite similar experience, even though I didn't win (yet).
In my third season, after 2 promotions, the winter break found me at the 1st spot, as newcomers to the league: ok, Man Utd played 2 matches less, the calendar is not full with matches, AND I think the AI didn't take my team seriously in the first half, but that is still a bit too easy as well.




secured 1. Bundesliga status a few days before the end of the season.

Good job on staying up!

How the hell Mainz and Gladbach got relegated?!

Cheers, unfortunately there is no team from east Germany in the Bundesliga in real life. And Hansa even has to face 3. Bundesliga next season after relegation. :(

3rd season is over. Our second year in the top flight. It was a lively season again, but a very successful too. Though the campaign didn't start too well. We've had only four points on the board after the first seven games. We played well but didn't score goals. so I modified my tactic again. From last years successful 4-1-2-1-2 back to a 4-1-2-2-1 system. On striker systems didn't work that well for us yet, though I wanted to give my team more defensive stability but also more possibilities in midfield. It almost worked to perfection from that moment. We started a 10 games unbeaten run in the League (8 wins), until the eventual champion Dortmund beat us in a dramatic game by one goal. Midway through the season we had a small crisis, though a strong finish saw us finishing the League in a fantastic fifth place. It has be mentioned that from the 7th match day on we only lost three games - including the DFB Pokal! That says that the highlight of the season was with no doubt the Cup final at Berlin against League runners-up Schalke 04. A goal by young Dutch striker Leandro Bacuna won us the cup eventually!

Cup Final:

http://desmond.imageshack.us/Himg545/scaled.php?server=545&filename=pokalfch.jpg&res=landing


I didn't make that many transfers this time. Seven new players before the season and except of one they all became important ones. Dario Conca as our play-maker, Kara our monster in the DMF position, Michael Zullo a quality left back, Leandro Bacuna a promising young striker, Ivan Perisic the most expensice singing who didn't do well the first half of the season but exploded in the second half. Four players left us through the season. Tom De Sutter went to Al Ahli for €4,1 million, Anton Putsilla went in the winter break to Nürnberg for €5,25 million. I didn't want to sell him. he was our best player last year. I the first offer for him, but Nürnberg increased it and I couldn't say no to the money in the end as Pustilla was rather only a joker for us in this season and not any more the indispensable player as he used to be last season. There was also one really sad loss: Our magnificent keeper Kevin Müller didn't want to sign a new contract and will leave us for free to Bayern Munich. He didn't make another single game after that announcement for us because I had another exciting goal keeping talent on the bench already. I signed the 21 year old Pierreck Cros from Socheaux already last season for €425k, just in case something would go wrong with Müller as it did now. Cros is a very, very good keeper as well. In his 15 games for us he conceded only 6 goals.

Kara, what a monster:

http://desmond.imageshack.us/Himg713/scaled.php?server=713&filename=karaj.jpg&res=landing


Btw, quite interesting: We ended the season as the best away team of the League and gathered way more points away than home anyway. Don't know why there is this discrepancy but we had more problems to score goals at home than away. I only can assume that the opponents did attack more and were therefore more open to concede by counter attacks by my pacey attacking players when we played away, than in our home games, where the opponents played more defensive orientated.

Next season is over. A disappointing one. After last seasons success I hoped for further progress, though reality was different. It was very much an up and down season, with more downs than up's. Our DMC monster Kara left us after a fantastic start into the season. He had a minimum fee release clause of €4,5m and Schalke took advantage of that. From that point on we were only half the team that we were before. It was kind of chaos then, with loads of injuries and red cards and I tried some new tactics out of frustration. It didn't work well, though our winter signings helped us to finish the season okay eventually. Attacking midfielder Gabriel Torje came from Rennes and did very well (11 games, 4 goals, 7 assists) and would have done even better if he wouldn't have been injured. We also singed striker Falcao, who scored 9 goals in the second half of the season for us. So we finished 8th eventually, scored only one goal less than last season, though conceded far too many goals, which shows where our problem lies. I've to work on that.

^ Kara's great isn't he? I always try and buy him if I can.

Just spent six seasons managing Celtic winning the league every season. The League Cup was won 5 times and the Scottish Cup 4 times, the UEFA Cup once, the CL once and losing finalists twice.

Managed to accumulate approx £250m and the most I paid for a player was for Ignacio Lores who cost £3.6m. The most I recieved was £11m each for Biram Kayal & Fito Rinaudo.

The total transfer fees paid over six seasons came to £40m and the amount recieved was £124m.

I'm an Arsene Wenger type of manager. I don't like spending over the odds for players and only bring in players I need for the first team squad although I do bring in a few youngsters every season.

Best players I had.

Ok ladies. For the first time in years I am actually playing a single player game again. Since i took the train to uni the last few times, I was incredibly bored and thought I'd give it a try.

The team choice was surprisingly enough an easy one. Usually I try to buy a guy called Sebastien Haller at the start of the season, no matter what team I am managing. However, his team always goes on to perform quite poorly and battle relegation. So yeah, cut the long story short, instead of trying to buy him I was gonna take over the team he plays for and lead it back to glory.

The team in question is



http://www.rangerspedia.org/images/2/28/Aj-auxerre.png


Similar to CM, they are struggling in real life too. At the moment they are last in Ligue 1 and already relegated. Their last league title win is more than 15 years ago and the last domestic title was the Coupe de France in 2005.


History

Regarding the founding of the club, I'd just like to quote wikipedia. The french term Abbé means "Father" in English.


The club Association de la Jeunesse Auxerroise was founded in 1905, by the priest Father Ernest Abbé Deschamps. The club started successfully, becoming a force in the Catholic league F.G.S.P.F. In 1908, the club even reached the F.G.S.P.F. French Championship final, losing 8–1 however. At the end of the First World War, the club was expelled from its ground. Father Deschamps acquired several pieces of land along the Yonne on the Vaux road, which later formed the Abbé Deschamps Stadium.
Abbé Deschamps not only founded the club, he was also acting as president until 1949.


Auxerre's history is even more tied to another name though.

Guy Roux.

Having played for Auxerre from 1952 - 1962, he found himself taking over the squad as a player-manager for the first time in 1961-62. After a 2-year break he was again appointed manager of the team in 1964.
This was the starting point of an era which saw Roux become a living legend and symbol of the club.
He managed the team non-stop for 36 years from 1964 - 2000 transforming the third-league amateur side to a Ligue 1 powerhouse.
With Roux at the helm, Auxerre won their first and only Ligue 1 trophy in 1995/96 and 2 Coupe de France in 1994 and 1996.
He took a break in 2001-02 due to bypass surgery but was back at the club a year later and they won another 2 Coupe de France, in 2003 and 2005.
After 44 years in charge of the team, Roux retired from managing in 2005 only hours after securing his team what was supposed to be their last title for a while.

Almost half a century he had coached the club and also turned them into an academy for top players such as Laurent Blanc, Philippe Mexes, Djibril Cisse and Eric Cantona.

Guy Roux

Anyway, I am not trying to challenge his legacy or trying to replicate it. But I just read up on it and it was quite impressing.


Stadium

Home games are played at the Stade de l'Abbé Deschamps. It fits a bit more than 23 000 people and while it ain't the most modern stadium in France, it is a cosy one. As mentioned before, it is named after Abbé Deschamps, the founder of the club.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/a2/Auxerre_-_Stade_Abb%C3%A9-Deschamps_%2828%29.jpg/640px-Auxerre_-_Stade_Abb%C3%A9-Deschamps_%2828%29.jpg



Anyway, let's kick off our game.


I got appointed manager of A.J. Auxerre and the board told me straight away what they were expecting this season.

http://img839.imageshack.us/img839/2315/boardr.png (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/839/boardr.png/)


Basically what I had expected.

I had a look at the squad and was quite surprised. It wasn't a bad one, at least not that bad that we would have to battle relegation.
It was also a very young one, the average age being a bit above 23 years. I quite liked that since I prefer coaching young teams and promised the board to continue that trend and develop and nurture the club's talents.

Anyway, I had a hard look at every player and decided who had to go immediately. I listed a bunch of them and waited for bidders. What I'd also like to mention, another aim of mine was to stabilize the team's finances by cutting down on the number of players (48 at the beginning) and the player's wages.
Either way, my main goal was to lead the club to some kind of success. Finishing in the first half of the table and maybe sneaking into one of the two cup finals or semi-finals was an optimistic, albeit not completely unrealistic goal.


Transfers

Alrighty, the bids came in and I started selling. At the end of the season I had managed to sell a grand total of 13 players. Some youngsters I honestly had no hope for and a few guys of the old guard. Especially the sale of the experienced players like Olivier Kapo, Jérémie Berthod, Stephane Grichting etc. didn't always go down too well within the team but it was necessary to revitalize the squad and change our philosophy.

Once they have been gone and the rest of the guys got listed and relegated to the Reserves, I had another look at my squad and while we had lots of potential offensively we did lack quality defenders, especially since my tactic required 3 Centrebacks.

I sent out my scouts and searched the other Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 teams for players to improve my defense.

I soon made my first signing which was 20-year old defender Molla Wague from league rival Caen, a player recommended by fellow CM manager Chris_3_16.
While Wague hasn't overachieved this season, he has shown some glimpses of his high potential.

A week later I welcomed my second signing, young Montenegrin DMC Branislav Jankovic. My scouts had only good things to say about him after watching him perform for FK Grbalj.
Mostly coming on as a sub he impressed in his first season for Auxerre.

Last but not least another Centreback joined the team coming from Valenciennes. His impressive performances made me bid for him, however, his team rejected all offers at first. They eventually gave in though and I was happy to have him in my squad.

Those were my only signings and I was confident that the team would be strong enough to leave the relegation fears behind them. Those 3 also fitted my profile quite well. Young, hungry and a lot of potential.

Those were the trusted 24 who were supposed to lead Auxerre back to glory.

Tactics

I am playing a 3-6-1 tactic with 1 DMC acting as destroyer, 1 AMC connecting the central midfielders to the lone striker and 4 regular midfielders at the halfway-line.
Crowding the central midfield and sending pacey wingers Traoré and Oliech up front when we had control of the ball was our game plan.
It's not wibwobbed simply cuz I depise this stuff and it takes all the fun out of the game for me personally if you know you are going to win anyway.
It is a decent non-wibwob tactic though.

http://img443.imageshack.us/img443/4766/tacticq.png (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/443/tacticq.png/)



Season 1

We started off with a home game against Bordeaux. They ain't a bad side but no über-team either, so I was confident that we wouldn't start the season with a loss.
20 500 people came to see how the new manager and his team would be doing.

The season kicked off in style when our AMC Anthony Le Tallec collected the loose ball and put it into the net following a Traoré free kick.
Great start. Not much more happened in the first half.
We continued to be the dominant team in the second 45 minutes but were shocked when Bordeaux captain Jaroslav Plasil fired in a direct free kick from 20 yards out after an hour.
It looked to stay 1-1 right up until stoppage time but with the last ball of the game young defender Willy Boly took advantage of the confusion in Bordeaux's defense following a corner from subbed in winger Langil and scooooooored.

2-1 Auuuuuuxerre in the 93rd minute!!!!

What a game!!!

That's it for the moment. It ain't much "How are you doing yet?" since I only told you about the first game so far (although I have finished the first season as you can see in some screenies above) but I just wanted to present my team a bit.
I am also not sure if this is slowly turning into a story. Perhaps I make it into one eventually if the reception is decent.
What I can tell you though is that they are a really likeable bunch of young guys.

Anyway, stay tuned :ok:

Following our late win in Game 1, we had 2 tough games next.

Firstly we were facing off against reigning Ligue 1 Champion OSC Lille.
The team around superstar Eden Hazard started with a late 1-0 loss away at P-SG and were looking to get 3 points at home against my beloved Auxerre.
The guys were confident to take on Marseille and leave at least with a point.
It looked even better when 17-year old Sebastién Haller, who is acting as the lone striker, headed the ball into the net after half an hour following a Dudka cross. 1-0 Auxerre.
Talking about my DMC Dudka, he had an incredible game in the first half right up until the 40th minute when he picked up 2 yellow cards in mere seconds, first fouling Debuchy and then Hazard.
Not quite sure what referee Thierry Auriac was thinking since the second one on Hazard was never a yellow. Auriac either got scared of the potential reaction from Lille supporters if Dudka was to stay on the field or, well, he is simply on Lille's payroll. :censored:
Anyway, despite being sent off Dudka managed to pick up a match rating of 9 having won all 7 of his tackles and supplying the assist to the 1-0 as well.

The second half kicked off and without Dudka who absolutely annihilated Lille's offensive efforts thus far, the odds were slim regarding us hanging on to the 3 points.
We continued to defend brilliantly even with 10 men but finally broke down 10 minutes before the end when Lille forward Dimitri Payet used the space and scored the 1-1.
That was also the end result.
A draw away against the reigning champion playing with 10 men for most of the match. I would have taken that one before the game but was still a bit disappointed since I had hoped to steal 3 points from the Stadium Lille Métropole.


A week later we played against the next French heavy-weight. Olympique Marseille visited Auxerre having beaten P-SG 2-0 the week before. They were quite active on the transfer market having secured themselves Marvin Martin, Felipe Melo and Yann M'Vila.
We started brilliantly when Haller scored his second goal of the season in the 22nd minute.
We suffocated all Marseille attemps of going forward and it was still 1-0 after HT. I subbed out right winger Oliech who was quite tired and brought in Steeven Langil again who already has 1 assist on his stat sheet when he took the corner leading to Boly's late goal in our first game.
Still 1-0 after an hour, Marseille decided to focus even more on offense which gave us opportunities to score on the counter-attack.
We eventually did when Langil made a run and passed the ball into the area looking for Haller who turned with the ball and finished with a great move.
2-0 Auxerre!! The crowd was going mental.
1 minute away from regular time, Langil took a corner and Coulibaly converted it.
3-0!!! What a game!!
It got even better 2 minutes later when Langil ran up to take another corner and this time Haller's head met the ball and he scored his 3rd goal of the night.
4-0 FT!!!
Marseille getting absolutely smashed at the Stade de l'Abbé Deschamps!!!

http://img140.imageshack.us/img140/9681/marseille2.png (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/140/marseille2.png/)


Incredible performances by Haller who scored 3 goals, subbed in Langil with 3 assists and Willy Boly being the defensive rock.

7 points after 3 games. Better than I had expected especially since we were playing against Lille & Marseille.
Great start to the season.

Great start @Patinoz. I love the Ligue 1 to be honest and Auxerre is a great club, full of tradition. They brought out so many fantastic players. It's just sad to see them finishing bottom of the table this year. I mean it's hard to believe... they played still Champions League football in 10/11!

Bit stunned at the moment. After the last rather disappointing season I've been really strengthening the squad during the season break. A solid keeper (Tim Wiese) and a good DMC (Palacio) were most important, I also singed a left (Olsson)- and right back (Smalling). Herrera gave us more options in the attacking midfield.

http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/5672/in06.jpg


The season started super well. We were playing in the UI Cup and made it through the rounds to beat Espanyol, Lille and then Juventus in the Final. We were unbeaten in the first ten games in the League, lost in the first half of the season only one game anyway, against a very lucky Bayern side. All in all we finish the first half of the season top of the table! Can't believe it really, but a few good signings really having an impact. Well, it's actually only a continuation of our second season in the 1. Bundesliga, when we finished fifth and won the German Cup, though last year was so disappointing that I never thought we could be that competitive this season. Anyway, the first League title since the win of the last DDR-Oberliga championship in 1991 is looming around the corner! Oh and we still can win the UEFA Cup, as we're in the fourth round, having beaten Sevilla in the last round.

11th season, West Ham United: premiership winner, FA cup winner, Champions League winner


This season was great. I had the winner team from last year, that basicly meant a roughly 18 man squad, and about the same number of talented youngsters. I mention this, because I had to use all of them regularly: even my absolutley hopeless, 22 y/o striker had to play about 6 matches in the cups so that the others can rest. Lots of matches, and strangely my ignorance of the euros payed off. My strongest team available always played league matches, a few quality players with youngsters as backup played in the champions league and cups, and first time in this save I was lucky: when the 2nd team was capable of was somehow always enough to go through to the next stage, and basicly they made it through the 2 group stages by themselves!
This was a lucky year to remember: a trebble for WHU!
But, unfortunately it was necessery to find a new challenge, so I stopped celebrations early and didn't stop until I found a job at Motherwell.
I wonder how the AI will manage West Ham: they have a good squad with lots of rotation possibilities, and about 14-15 talented youngsters on long contracts who can definietly make it.

Champione Champione Ole Ole Ole!!!

It's done! Hard to believe but Hansa Rostock really managed to win the title! WOW, I'm happy and proud as I never thought this would happen, not in this season at least. We wanted to do better than last year, sure, a place in the top five was my personal goal, the board would have been happy as long as we're fighting brave against relegation. But it really worked out very well for us. The signings brought the team up to a new level. Tim Wiese in goal was finally a decent keeper, Olsson and Smelling were great additions for the left- and right full back position. A big help was also Jeremain Lens, who came in winter from Schalke for €6 mio. He wasted away in their reserve team but was a fantastic player for us, though he picked up here and there some injuries. He still made 12 games and scored 6 goals + 3 assists. Despite our good run in the League I still waited for a drop of our good form I have to admit. Well, if you are top of the League after half a season you start to dream but it's still a long way to go. We won the League on the 32nd matchday eventually, a 3-1 at Hoffenheim secured us the title. Overall it was a massive season, only two defeats, the most goals scored and the least goals conceded in the League. We did fairly well in the UEFA Cup too. Arsenal eliminated us in the quarter-final though.

http://img209.imageshack.us/img209/3568/tab07.jpg



Falcao was probably our most important player, as he scored the most goals and most of them were crucial. That makes it 33 goals in 56 games for him for us. I'd say that is good value for money if you take into account that he only cost €6,5 Mio.

http://img717.imageshack.us/img717/5158/falcao2g.jpg



I had to get him back and I got him back. In the winter break I made an attempt to sign Kara back. Schalke bought him a year ago or so from us but he didn't take part in many games for them and was even relegated into the reserve team. So we bought him back for €4,4 mio. It was worth the money indeed. We had already Palacios for the position of the DMC and he did well the first half season but it was clear that Kara would be my number one on that position. He didn't disappoint me and played a fantastic second half of the season.

Suddenly, my team stopped scoring, we got to the 8 of uefa cup by winning Red Star and Sevilla at home but no: the A.I. decides that i loose from almost every team in the league, i am not kidding, 2 narrow wins and all other games lost. Guys, i don't know what you're talking about tactics and counters, the A.I decides to do whatever it wants no matter how i play or if i have the better team. All big teams lost many points, like they were giving me the title as a gift and i didn't want to take it. It just doesn't make sense, i am very angry right now, because i deserve the title and i can't get it. And it's not like i will do my best to take it next year because i feel it doesn't depend one me and on my team. Does anyone from you load lost games or you all play with what happens the first time only? Right now i really don't feel it's cheating because the game is cheating and i am thinking of uninstalling it and stop playing!

I don't do that as i mentioned in another post, i just asked if anyone does it. All i'm saying is that it is not cheating if you think the game cheats on you but i thought of doing it, i didn't actually do it. A friend of mine used to do that in the past and i wanted to know if there are people doing it though. I wanted some opinions on the weird behaviour of the A.I. (for example, Olympiakos-Proodeftiki 0-4, total unrealistic and it happened out of the blue) but i got some humorous responses instead. I would appreciate if someone could advise somehow, for example, if your team is in good form and you have 2 bad results versus weak teams, change the tactic etc. Yes, i agree, that was first class ranting.

Well, 12 losses in 500 games wouldn't bother me either :) I am not the most experienced player of the game, that's why i asked for a bit help, but something tells me that it's not just the game, it doesn't just happen. Maybe sometimes the A.I. hammers some teams for making the game more balanced, i don't know. PAO, Olympiakos, AEK, PAOK had also many lost points, it was like every team could beat any team. It's interesting but as a player i want to see more realism, especially when those weak teams were indeed weak to mediocre at best, so they shouldn't be able to mount a title challenge, no way!

I was upset because something like this happened too many times, not just once. Very interesting stats though, good that you mention it! One thing i certainly find good with the A.I. is that it finds good players when good players leave a team. I always browse their inventory (to use an rpg term) and i find very good young players from their academies or coming from abroad. I have grabbed some of them because they don't play regularly and want first team football. In this regard i love the A.I. :)

I've recently started a career game as ambitious money grubbing manager Harry Climber.

Season One - He took the reigns at Conference club Weymouth. With an unknown reputation and no money in the bank, he was unable to sign any new players and struggled to keep a talentless and restless squad together. He eventually achieved a modest 15th place finish.

Season Two - Still at Weymouth, he brought in a few cheap players to plug the holes left by those who had left on a free transfer after refusing to sign new contracts. Sitting at 11th place on Christmas Eve, he jumped ship to Third Division side Grimsby, who were placed third in the league having played two games more than the clubs around them. He replaced Andy Hessenthaler, who had left to manage Second Division side Swansea.The Grimsby board has asked for the team to finish the season with a respectable league position. Harry has his eye on a playoff place.

A very enjoyable game so far

Horrid Harry's ambitious adventure hasn't really worked out. He had planned on jumping ship often, to teams in a better position. That hasn't really happened...

Season Two

A decent run of form in the last few games of the season lifted Grimsby to 2nd in the Third Division table. Level on points with leaders Wrexham on the final day, Grimsby struggled to a 0-0 draw with basement club Swindon. Wrexham however fell to a shock defeat at Rochdale, and Harry celebrated his first league title of his career.

Season Three

Several players were shipped out and replaced over the pre season, and Climber's Grimsby started life in the Second Division with a bang going on an 8 game unbeaten streak. Shortly afterwards, league form fell off a cliff. Grimsby really struggled to score goals, and the defeats came thick and fast. Somehow the team managed to limp into the final playoff place on the last day of the season.

Climber's first playoff game was against 3rd placed Bristol City at Ashton Gate.

http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee189/mr_andy_pants/Lucky%20Harry/firstleg.jpg

Grimsby were completely outclassed. They were extremely lucky to come away behind by only a single goal.



The second leg was one of the most tense and memorable games I have played in the 8 or 9 years I've owned the game



On the back foot for much of the game, in front of our own fans, Steve Kabba popped up with an 87th minute goal to level the tie on aggregate.

This is how it looked after extra time

http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee189/mr_andy_pants/Lucky%20Harry/thestats.jpg

So on to penalties. The first three Grimsby players to try their luck from the spot missed. I won't repeat the words that tumbled from my mouth. Yet somehow, a succession of heroic saves from our keeper put us back in it. Having fallen behind for the first time in the tie, Bristol City defender Sean St Ledger stepped up to the spot. And missed.

Grimsby were going to Wembley.



Then...

The big day. The Second Division Playoff final at Wembley. It took 9 minutes for Grimsby midfielder Shane Tolley to get on the scoresheet. The goal came completely against the run of play.

Deep into the second half, with the Grimsby fans beginning to celebrate their promotion, Plymouth's Mason put the champagne on ice with a cool 84th minute equaliser. Bugger. On to extra time, where the scored remained locked at 1-1. Here are the stats

On to penalties again. This is what happened.

An unbelievable result! The first time I can remember gaining promotion in an English league through the playoffs. An absolute miracle considering the state of the squad.



So that was season three. One hell of a roller coaster. Harry Climber wasn't finished at Grimsby yet...

Season 1: AC Ajaccio, Ligue 2, champion, league cup semis
Season 2: AC Ajaccio, Ligue 1, 5th in the league, league cup winner, cup winner

Quite a straightforward season, as I had no choice: when all 3 of my decent players were playing, we usually won or drawn, when one was missing, I always lost. Luckily, they played in the cup, so I won both, with about 5-6 superkeeper performances from Ochoa :D

Heroes of Ajaccio:
Guillermo Ochoa, goalkeeper superhero
Massimo Ferrari, italian veteran defender
Sofiane Feghouli, young french midfielder, who came from Valencia for first team footie, and proved to be a bomb! (13 goals, 16 assists in the league!)


Now, to get a job in Spain!

The CV of "Il Mago":

44-45 Puteaux -
45-48 Stade Francais -
48-49 Valladolid
49-52 Atlético Madrid (2X spanish champion)
52 Malaga
53 Deportivo La Coruna
53-57 Sevilla
57-58 Belenenses
59-62 Spain
58-60 Barcelona (2X champion, 1X cup, 1X UEFA)
60-68 Inter (2X CL, 1X cup, 3X champion)
66-68 Italy
68-70 Roma (1X cup)
73-74 Inter
78-79 Rimini
79-81 Barcelona (1X cup)


I started as spanish/italian in a randomly chosen french club in Ligue2 (Ajaccio).
I have to win:
4X spanish champion title
2X spanish cup
1X CL or UEFA with a spanish team
3X italian champion title
3X italian cup
2X CL with an italian team

I started a new career game with Gateshead on the March 2012 ODB update. First season I won the League and the FA Trophy, somehow I managed to win the FA cup with a pretty poor team.

Season 2 we won the 3rd division with pretty much the same team, built up a tidy balance of 10 Million in the bank for them.

Season 3, I decided upon a change to further my managerial career, and when Dundee came knocking sat 5th in the SPL it was an off i just couldnt turn down. After taking charge i completly demolished the first team and reserves and transfer listed everyone to completely rebuild the side, bar the odd 2 players i thought may be quite useful. Half way through January we've broken the Old Firm dominance and lead by 8 points after 22 games, however we have been knock out of the UEFA cup in the second round. Here's to the end of a good season hopefully.

I was starting a new game with Celtic my favourite team in Scotland and also Becuase I saw Samaras on the European Championship 2012.
In the begin we play two friendly matches against AZ Alkmaar (Holland) and Genk (Belgium) If I'm right... both games we won so that was a good start.
I haven't buy a player almost came aghahowa from Shaktar but Samaras and Hooper start good in the season so I have give theme a chance.
We don't sell important players, I start with a very big selection so there was no place for new players and I want to try it with this team.

Here you can see some printscreens of my first season with Celtic, I'm very happy with it :)

Club Brugge has already make a offer of one of my players but I haven't accept it. But I think if we play next seasons again good there will be more interest in my players.

Yup, Tapani patched.

My squad is actually starting to look decent now. Some of the youngsters have really developed well, and when England U21 played recently I had eight players in their squad. Finished 11th in the premiership last season though, and I'll be happy as long as I finish in the top half this season too. Europa league would have been sweet. I've been there before, but with a poor FL1 side it wasn't pretty. Don't remember who knocked me out, but it was in the early rounds.

20-06-12, 08:30 AM
Tried my Danish game but was unable to get into after a few seasons. I am have started another game.

The rules for this game is that you must start in the lowest playable league and only buy players who your scout has found when you set him to look for youth players, this is a tough challenge initially I think Monkey the Chicken came up with it so thanks to him.



Club - Itabuna Esporte Clube

Season - 2002

Board Expectations - The Boartd want me to battle bravely agsainst the drop, fingers crossed I should manage this. I see this season as just wanting to do that whilst bringing in a squad as currently I have no players

Finance- 122,000 in red this is no problem as I cant spend any cash any way

Stadium - LUiz Viana Filho, Needs some investment, holds 4300, not a bad start will be a few seasons before this changes

Bahia State Champ - Started bit slowly in this league but strung together a few wins. There is two quality sides in Bahia and Vitoria who beat everyone then there is a gap to the other teams who either are in the third tier or non league I managed to establish my self as the third best team this is where I finished. In the playoff semi finals I lost to Bahia 3-0 on aggergate

National Div 3 - Bit of an up and down season never really troubled the promotion spots nor the relegation places, I will be in this league for another year which is no bad thing. In the end I managed to finish 4th right in the middle. The one thing I will say is that I have never felt so victimised like I have this season by refs, pens turned down offisde goals and red cards, one of this happened at least once a game.

Brazil Cup -Rnd 1 lost 1-0 on agg v d2 side Portuguesa

POTS - Rosa came in near the start of the season and has been a rock at the back, he is already attracting attnetion of the bigger Division 3 clubs and some 2nd Division CLubs


http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh238/ashton430/Rosa.jpg

Next Year - I would love to have a similar showing in the Bahia Championship and also a better run at going up. I am going back to look for more players, hopefully I will be able to pick up another keeper as at the moment I only have one who is a bit injury prone.

ashton430
20-06-12, 12:48 PM
Club - Itabuna Esporte Clube

Season - 2003

Board Expectations - The Boartd want me to battle bravely agsainst the drop, again I was hoping for at least progress out of the intial group.

Finance- 473,000 in the green this down to the small wages I am paying and the fact that I am unable to spend any cash. I did get 70k from some stupid team buying my 5th choice defensive midfielder

Stadium - LUiz Viana Filho, Needs some investment, holds 4300, not a bad start will be a few seasons before this changes

Bahia State Champ - Really slow start this year and was looking for a time that I may not make the latter stages, eventually I did I scraped third but was still put out in the semis by Bahia for the second year running this time I lost 6-0 over two legs. It did not fill me with confidence for the league season.

National Div 3 - I was obviously being a bit daft in worrying about this, I qualified out of my first group in top spot with two games left, we had played well and never moved out of the two qualification spots. In round 2 we played Uberaba who also won their group this was a much tougher affair over the two legs it was tight all the way I managed to edge a 2-1 win. In the promotion group I faced two teams who had won their initial group and also one that came a close second. We sailed through into the final and earning promotion on the way by only dropping two points we made this last stage look easy. In the final we played Treze, although the game meant nothing with both teams already up I still wanted to win as it would give us the league title. Over the two legs we beat them 4-2

Brazil Cup - The cup was better this year we beat Treze a fellow division 3 side 3-2 over two legs, in the 2nd round we beat division 2 side Aguia de Maraba 2-0 over the two legs in what was two easy games. In the third round our mini run came to end when we lost 6-2 over two legs against the massive division 1 side Palmerias it would be good experience for my young team.

POTS - Couto has been amazing this year, I am hoping to keep him for a few years he joined early this year and really started to get going towards the end of the season he was the main reason behind our successs

http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh238/ashton430/couto.jpg

Next Year - Unsure really, first I would like to make a better showing in the state championship, I still only expect third but getting some more points and running the top 2 closer would be nice, I would like at least a point off either Bahia or Vitoria for the first time. In the league I think just survival has to be considered.

I dont know whats worse that or that he was my best player by a country mile, says a lot about that season really but thats why this challenge is so tough because I am totally dependant on the crap players that come up on my youth search and the occassional half decent one

20-06-12, 05:25 PM
Club - Itabuna Esporte Clube

Season - 2004

Board Expectations - The Boartd want me to battle bravely agsainst the drop, I really agreed with this and if I could do this I would see it as a success.

Finance- 1,600,000 in the bank this year I got rid of a couple more fringe players and then my board for some reason gave me another 5mil, by the end of the year I was up to 8mil.

Stadium - LUiz Viana Filho, Needs some investment, holds 4300, not a bad start will be a few seasons before this changes

Bahia State Champ - Very good start this year we won our first 6 games and then lost to the big two in the second round we snatched a point of each. In the end we got our highest amount of points in this championship and faced once again Bahia who we lost 3-0 against. We drew the first leg and then in the second lost our keeper and top defender to a red card and ended up conceeding three late goals, it could have been so much better.

National Div 2 - This year did not begin well at all we got beat by a margin of at least 4 in the first 5 games and I was worried. It turned out to be unfounded as when I found my new GK, this means I know have two, the second has been great and when i signed him things started to pick up. We ended on a half decent run and managed to get up to 10th, this is were we finished. In truth we never pressed any higher than this and the threat of the drop was always a threat after the start but after 15 games we looked pretty solid and didnt visit the drop zone again.

Brazil Cup - Didnt cover myself glory this year at all, I beat Uberlinda in the first round 4-1 on aggregate, I had played this Divsion 3 side numerous times over the years and always been successful. In the 2nd round we faced Salgueiro another divsion 3 side who we got beat 2-1 by, not pleased.

POTS - Silva has been so good its unreal, he was my first new signing this year and has formed a partnership with Couto from last year, I am concerned how long I can keep this two because eyes from the top division and Europe have been interested in the pair over the season.

http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh238/ashton430/silva.jpg


Next Year - Next year I want to progress into the final of the Bahia State CHampionship at least been semi finals every year so far so one step further is a must. In the league I would love to push on again and get closer to going up but just a better start is the first thing I need to do.

20-06-12, 06:32 PM
Good updates there ashton, I too like the Brazilian leagues and your way of signing players is an interesting concept that I may have to attempt in the future!

My current game: All European leagues loaded, challenge is to win every competition with the first club I join in that country, in every country. Started with RC Mechelen in Belgium who had just enough players to field a starting 11, so I signed another 10 players on frees. I won Division Three at a canter, my star players my three strikers who I signed on frees, a Russian named Nikolaev, a Colombian named Martín García and a Welshman named Carl Lamb, who got 51 goals between them, Nikolaev with 22.

2nd season, I had hopes that I would stay up. I let go three good players for good amounts of money, and a backup also. To replace I signed 6 players, three on frees, one on a bosman and two for small money transfers including Pablo Mills from Crawley. One big blow was Nikolaev broke his leg in pre-season, but I loaned in a suitable replacement. In the end I won the league, started steadily but kept the form up whereas others dropped away. The loanee striker, Lorenzo Lai, was eventual fans player of the season, with a respectable 14 goals.

3rd season. I let go another two good players for good money, and Carl Lamb who was not nearly good enough for Division One. To replace I signed Lai, and another striker who was going on a £50k clause called Vincent Ramael, as well as an Argentian midfielder from a French club, Abdoulaye Seck, a senegalese centre back from Anderlecht who is my most expensive signing to date at £600k, Steve Jennings a midfielder from Motherwell and a french regen midfielder who my youth scout identified. I had an excellent start to top flight football, hanging around 4th place until Christmas. After the winter break, I beat Anderlech 3-1 at home, and then form dropped dramatically, only winning 3 more times until the end of the season. Crucially though, I salvaged 10 draws in that period and ended up finishing a comfortable 8th. The highlight of that season was probably beating Genk 3-0 away amidst of that stinking form at the end of the season.

I'm now at the start of season 4. I've let two defenders go on bosmans who were backups and wouldn't sign new contracts. I have signed two defenders to replace them, and resigned a ML I sold at the end of season 1, paying less than I was paid. He never played a single competitive game during that time, and whilst I don't think he improves my first 11, I needed more players in the squad. I'm worried that I'm not going to be able to push on as I'm really struggling to find players that will actually improve my first 11, but we shall have to see - I have noticed more expensive players are now interested in signing after the games pre-season processing so perhaps I will find a few more good players on my searches.

I've never had a big squad during this career. I currently have 21 players, and am considering sticking with this. The fixture list is not very demanding fitness wise - it is very rarely more than 1 game a week, even if you consider the cup games which I haven't faired too well in so far anyway; the last 16 in the 3rd season was my best so far. I was hoping after half of the top flight season that I would sneak into Europe but it wasn't to be.

I'm also doing a Brazilian game, trying to bring glory futebal to the captial city Brasilia with unfancied Brasiliense. So far in my 7-year spell I have brought home:

7 Central State Championships
3 First Division Titles
1 2nd Division Title
1 Brazilian Cup
1 Brazilian Champions Cup

Reached the final of the Copa Libertadores but was conned out of that by a dodgy referee and badly let down by a goalkeeper unable to handle the pressure of big games (Neto). On average my team are playing 70+ games per season, with tiredness (I assume) the reason we're constantly falling short of knock-out success. Also, the Argentine Velez Sarsfield seem to have built a world-class team that we can only dream of atm with money being in short supply for a club this size. Another 4 years and I think we'll be able to match them.

cheers mate

I am in December 2002 at the moment and I am unbeaten in all competitions, Notable results are hammering Liverpool 4-0 in the League Cup 3rd Round and a 3-3 draw with Man Utd (Notable as complacency set in at 75 mins, We were 3-1 up after 71 mins then 2 goal in the last 15 mins pulled it back for the draw)

I will do an update when I get to Jan 2003 (Will not be until tonight as I have to go into town now, also hoping to get an updating session in too)

Hi All,

Recently started a game on the March 2012 updated with the Tapani 2.19 patch, thought I would share my progress:

Current squad;

A few familiar names (McGeady, couldn't resist signing Drogba on a free even though he's now 37 and rubbish).

308

History:

309

There is also a Vans trophy win to throw in there - I am currently in the league cup final and still in the Uefa and FA cups in the current season.

Have found a couple of gems:

310311

This guy has been with me since the depths of League 2 - signed him on a free and have stuck him at right back with 'run with ball' on, and he's an absolute beast. Scored a ridiculous goal against Chelsea (took it round Mata three times):

A closer season than shown by the table. First half of the season was great however started to struggle past the winter break (my top goal scorer Ipoua had 18 goals in 19 games, he finished the season with 20 goals), promotion was secured in the 5th to last game of season with a 2-1 victory over Paderborn (2nd place at the time), then 1st place wass all but secured in the 3rd to last game vs Dresdner SC with a 1-1 draw (thus needing just 1 point for 1st) and gaurenteed in the 2nd to last game with a 6-2 victory over Frankfurt (A). Funnily enough Paderborn and Dresdner SC played each other in the final match of the season with 2nd place in the balance, Paderborn had dropped to 3rd after hitting a slump following their defeat to RW Essen allowing Dresdner to take second by a point before the game. Dresdner SC would secure promotion after coming back from 2-0 down to 2-2 meaning the match ended in a draw thus Dresdner were promoted by a point. Financially the club is in deep trouble as they have a £600,000 wage bill while they can barely make over £150,000 a month. It didn't help that German regional clubs cannot sell played in January and if it wasn't for the £1.7 million injection finances would be in total chaos. The finances for year 2 are likely going to be reliant on a good cup run (which is unlikely) and increased attendance. I would probably have resigned had I failed promotion (financially screwed) but the club has a chance. With the team I have it is going to be a fight against relegation (despite the 9 point lead we were quite lucky to be promoted). Hopefully get a few easy teams in the cup and then get knocked out by a giant for high attendance (my stadium has 25000 capacity so can make a good lot of money if going up against high attendance teams, RW Essen's highest attendance is 20000 but the average is 5000).

All my signed players are scouted regens, picked up on free transfer. A few players from the conference north-side is still in the regular first team - quality! 85 million in the bank, but nothing to use them on :lol: A bigger stadium would be nice, but the board won't budge.

Perhaps it's time to move on. It would be cool to win the Champions League with this team, and if I keep playing I know I will, but I've kinda had enough. Unsure..

On a side note, the Gloucester board is the cheapest ever.

Challenge accepted. I resigned from Gloucester and applied to a million available jobs in Spain. Écija in D2B hired me. Luckily they were at the top of the table, I won one game and was promoted to D2. :D Currently cruising through - my team is awful but so is everybody else. :lol: Signed quite a few teenagers, seems to be more of them in Spain than in England.

Well a good cup run could be out of the question after drawing division 1 side Schalke in the 1st round. Financially however large season ticket sales and tv rights push RW Essen out of debt, if we can maintain profit is another question (however it likely means we won't go bankrupt this season). We are given an ok starting schedule by having to play two midtable teams as well as the 1st place team from the southern regional league (they have been spending a lot of money so they could be a dangerous team). The board have given me the objective to avoid relegation which should be a challange as 4 teams get relegated and the league is rather small with 18 teams. I am aiming for around 10-11th place. Pre-season was OK, it started with a 4-0 win against the division 2 champions (who played at full strength) however drew against Doncaster as well as 2 other teams that we were skilled enough to beat. We lost 2-0 against 1860 Munchen but did play fairly well so was pleased with the performance.

Taking over this team might have been a poor decision. I won promotion to La Liga quite easily, but my semi-professional side is miles and miles away from the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid. After half a season, I'm 9th in the table, and it looks like I'll be stuck there. I don't have a reserve/B-team either, so my squad is full of teenagers who very rarely get a game. I was offered the job as Portugal manager and took it, so it's not all doom and gloom. Still, I can't see myself staying on at Ecijo for very much longer. If they at least would turn professional, perhaps I didn't have to give my players minimum fee release-clauses, and maybe then the side could develop into something..
