After 'what Im told' is a new world record of CM online, (almost 12 seasons in) me and the guys, Ian and Pep have tonight set ourselves off on another adventure, although we're staying in the the English league, Ian will manage Wycombe, Pep will take Mansfield and I will control Scunthorpe. So all of us kicking off in Div 3. It's gonna be a fun time as we all lead our small budget clubs from the football leagues bottom division. Who know's, few seasons from now? Maybe 1 of us will have a higher class job through merit, or maybe we could be loyal and aim to bring our small team to the top - only time will tell as we kick off with a session tonight.

If you guys want, Ill happily keep you posted on the game. Due to the last game corrupting (still crying) our aim is to got 1 step further, and why not? :)

Great stuff men, I love starting at the bottom.

Theoretically you could all win promotion each season :D

Glad you guys started again, great to see games happening on the forum :ok:

A slow burner this one - not the excitement of buying the 30mill superstar....but VERY excited when you buy that 200k defender that will stop the goals leaking in the bottom division! Xmas has got in the way of rapid progress in season one..but we'll get back onto it ASAP...

Mikey has started with a bang wining all his first 5 games...
Pep is hit and miss
me - i havent won a game yet...let down by nit having a GK of any ability what so ever....and not having the funds to replace!

Gonna be a tough tough opening season!
great though!

Xmas has made it a slow start - but.. onwards and upwards as we sail through season 1. I myself am pleased with my own start, on and off the field, tbh, feel abit guilty, especially at that 45k purchase then selling him a week later for 500k :)

It is certainly different, but the spice is deffo there, to make an assult on the record :)

ok back on it - !
After a few days break!....getting interesting now

lots of wheeler/dealing to get the funds and therefore the players to propel you thru the divs ...

scunthorpe have been the biggest earners and spenders...but doing them well as they sit at the top of div 2
Mansfield chugging along nicely dipping between auto promotion and playoffs
Wycombe are shocking in the league ...10 pts from the play offs...but have progressed to the 5th round of the FA cup beaten premiership aston villa along the way.

this game is going to have legs!

After abit of a lay-off, we're back up and running. So as we power through season 1, (roughly 3-4 hours today) Its looking good for me (Scunthorpe) as promotion is looking good and am sitting pretty on top, having said that, I've spent some money

Ian meanwhile (Wycombe) may not be looking too good in the league, but boy is he on a cup run, an FA cup 5th round awaits him as he builds his squad slowly and surely

Elsewhere Pep (Mansfield) have had a good run of late which has seen them climb into the play offs and not far off automatic. Some decent freebie's have been hired

Until next time guys!

Ok cracking along nicely...2nd season!
Scunthorpe flying high in div 1 ...and making nearly 30 mill on player sales!
Mansfield and Wycombe both flying high 1st & 3rd in div 3....

Early days yet....still looking for that perfect squad..and some superstar internationals...might take a few more seasons!

Another impressive session, as come towards the end of season 2. Scunthorpe (Me) looking good for a 2nd promotion, and have a League Cup semi final against Man City to look forward to too, aswell as a 4th round FA home clash again Spurs. Mansfield (Pep) might be out the FA Cup and fell victim to Scunthorpe in the League Cup, but their on course for promotion. Meanwhile Wycombe (Ian) finally creating the squad he wants and looks a good bet for promotion with his rival, question is, can they pip Mansfield to the title?

23-02-14, 02:11 PM
End of the second season....

Scunthorpe walked the 2nd div for a straight 2nd promotion...
Mansfield - won 3rd div
Wycombe - 2nd in 3rd div ...so promoted - Benik Afobe my star player!

all about the rise through the leagues now and making money along the way (something scunthorpe is doing well at!)...maybe a few cup wins.....will be 3/4 seasons before we are conquering in Europe again like we were with the last net game!

onwards and upwards!

working our way thru season 3 (january)
scunny top of div 1
Wycombe and mansfield swapping 1st/2nd place....

personally....built a team capable of promotion probably next season too...but woefully short of funds...need a few million pound sales and 200k purchases to boost the coffers.....hopefully next season in a higher division!...

After a monster of a 4 hour session last night, we bring season 3 to a close. We all got a good
piece of silverwear this season

Myself (Scunthorpe) claimed a 3rd straight title by winning Division 1 and will now apply my
trade next season with the big boys of the Premiership. To be fair, I've been quite lucky where
I've received big bids for players, and able to do plenty of wheeling and dealing

Ian (Wycombe) Claimed a 2nd promotion and won the 2nd Division, along with the Vans
trophy. After a shaky start to his career as boss, the squad is building very nicely with some
real decent additions made through-out the last 12 months

Pep (Mansfield) Now for me, Pep deserves manager of the year from the 3 of us. Although a
beaten finalist in the Vans, and pipped to the 2nd Division title by the same team, Wycombe,
promotion wasnt a good enough consolation for this gaffer, he had to go win the F.A Cup along
the way. So will be in Division 1 next season and a European Adventure thrown in.


Cracking on for the next session

Wycombe - ..me....for the first timein 3 yrs i have money in the bank and a squad im proud of (for the championship!)....going well at the top of the league by 10 points....with pep jumping up a div...shouldnt be too much trouble winning the title and being in the prem next yr....out of the league cup early...little bit disappointing!...

Cracking on nicely in season 4, I for one a pleased with my own team, although finances do worry me going forward, about to sell a decent striker in order to keep the people upstairs happy

Pep, was a little shocked at his decision to take the Southampton job, after the work he done at Mansfield, especially after winning the FA Cup, but to be fair to him, all goes on his managerial CV, and Southampton looking good so far,

Ian - The squad is becoming very impressive, and no doute you will be a force come next season

After 2 monster sessions today, we bring season 4 to an end.

For me, it was Premiership glory, only losing once,

Pep, the man decided to desert his Mansfield post and take over Southampton to battle in the Prem, and to be fair, he didnt do too bad a job. Runners up in the Prem and beaten finalist in the FA Cup

For Ian - he's finally nailed his squad and has managed to set season 5 up with his beloved Wycombe in the Premier, following Div 1 championship

For me and Pep, we've been busy bees in the market, wheeling and dealing, preparing for Champions league action, and in fairness, Pep has beaten me to many duels for signatures of players, some of which, the twi-light of their careers, RVP, Gerrard, Vidic, but the best - at 31 years of age, Rooney. Ian meanwhile has found himself a few bargains as most of his kitty was used on ground improvements

Roll on season 5

Ill happily take the loyalty award, but, I get you both on taking on the next chapter of a different job. Who knows what's installed come the end of our 5th season. Will I sign a rolling 1 year deal, or will I fancy a new challenge? only time will tell

As for season 5, Pep's Southampton, in my opinion, dropped many points, and not fighting for top spot like I guessed they would. The old guard might not of been the correct way of doing it, but I do fancy Pep bring a cup home

As for the Man Utd gaffer, well, e Devils are fighting a relegation battle with over a dozen games left, and despite that, still have 1 of the best stadiums and set-up's in the league. Some decent players purchased along the way, rebuilding has certainly started at Old Trafford

For me, my final piece of the jigsaw defensively was bringing in Shaw from my biggest rivals (shocked he sold to me) 17.5m well spent. Got some decent players coming through the ranks. And whilst I might only be a couple points clear of Wycombe, my fingers are crossed that their new manager will struggle and I can break away

14-04-14, 01:14 PM
As season 5 comes a close, a quick summary of how its gone:

For Scunthorpe, they have retained the Premiership, won the League Cup along the way, have an F.A Cup final against Southampton to look forward to, and still riding high in the Champions League, although will have have to over-turn a 2-1 deficit against Real Madrid in the 2nd leg of their semi final match. The squad looks good, although Keeper is abitm dodgy at times

Southampton, Pep switched from Mansfield roughly 14 months ago, and although he's assembled a decent squad, he'l be disappointed he's only just scraped 4th place in the Premiership. Whilst the old guard still do their part, come next season, some youth is needed, if they are to fight for all trophies, on the positive side, an F.A Cup final showdown with the Champions is a hugh game, stop the Iron Men achieving a possible quadruple?

Man Utd, after shocking the world of football, the gaffer took the old trafford job just after half way through the season, they were in the bottom 3, out of all domestic cups, not in Europe, and a squad of average standard. But the new man at the help has ringed the changes, bought in some decent buys, and although 1 game to go, will be finishing 6th, which is superb. Whilst the kitty for the summers looks better, next season could see the Red Devils challenging.

Elsewhere, Previous clubs taken on by Pep and Ian, Mansfield made it to the Premiership despite Pep's exit, but have struggled this season, and is it goes to the wire, their Premiership status is on the line. Meanwhile, Wycombe have does very well in ensuring its Champions League football next season alongside the Champions, Southampton and Chelsea, and with 1 game to go, they can ensure runners up slot, which would be a massive achievement

Unitl next time guys

Hitting pre-season as we set off into season 6. For me as Scunthorpe, I ousted Pep in the FA Cup to conclude the domestic treble, however Real scuppered my quadruple attempt in the Semi's of the Champions League

Despite losing the FA Cup, Pep and he beloved Southampton secured 4th slot and will be playing Champions League Football in the new season. Some very decent purchases from the Pep camp, could this be their season?

The re-invented Man Utd with Ian at the helm, finished 6th and earnt Uefa Cup football this season. Managing to clear some junk that Moyers had left and slowly builiding a side more than capable for challenging for silverware this season

Key Players for the forth coming season including summer purchases

Scunthorpe - Luke Shaw, although due to serve a 7 game ban, Leon Goretzka, a summer 12.75m swoop, Julian Draxler, superb since his move mid-last season

Southampton - Gabigol, steal of the summer, following a bosman move, Max Meyer, amazing stats, and still only 22, Damiao, another superb freebie at Xmas has proved to be undisputed number 1 striker

Man Utd - Zaton, finally nailed him for 7.25m, only a matter of time before he pays that back, Manuele Pinna (regen) star in the making here, Patrick Bamford, the striker that was pouched from former club Wycombe, fast becoming amongst the best in the league, still only 24

London35
18-04-14, 01:40 PM
Gabigol/Damaiao could well swing things southamptons way this season i think

(Man Utd) I'll be happy to have a decent cup run...maybe win uefa...and a top 4 finish...
Scunny and saints have had the advantage of pillaging all the quality players...so on a mission to get the regens and youth to improve so that I have a chance to battle for top honours!

nicely set up for season 6!

Well what a great few sessions we have had today - season 6 has come to a close, and a great turnaround from Man Utd which has seen them clinch the Premiership crown, and a beaten finalist in the Uefa Cup too. Southampton cleaned up on cups, winning the League and FA, and to rub salt in the wound, won the Champions League against Scunthorpe in the final. So no glory for the Iron men, and finishing 2nd will just have to do. As we've powered through pre-season and kicked off season 7, Scunny have been busy, spending almost 100m in the summer, the champions have also spent well, whilst Southampton have picked up a few bits and bobs

Lets Rock and Roll

Another 90 minute session passes, and boy its tight at the top. Although Im leading the way, Pep's beloved Southampton can claim top spot if they win their games in hand, still bragging an unbeaten run along the way. They will be hard to beat, but they're picking up a few up and coming stars Ive noticed. Our reigning champions meanwhile, well they have some real young stars on the horizon. My own scout bought their names back to, and most of them have age on their side. Although dropped 5 points in their last few games, a long way to go. As for myself, Im a little inconsistent at times, but being top at New Year will, I guess, :)

Until next time

As Season 7 comes to an end, Trophies went to us big 3

I as Scunthorpe reclaimed the Premiership crown, with 4 games to spare. Although was beaten in the champions league quarters and then beaten to the same team in the FA Cup final (will reveal in a moment who) I'm happy to have won the main domestic competition, The main focus

Meanwhile, Pep's Southampton , finished runners up in the league this time around, (1 place better than last season) but proved for another season, they are kings of Europe by retaining the Champions League at the expense of... (tell you in a moment) Also a beaten finalist in the League Cup final by the same team as above, Pep will be aiming Im sure for the competition to have eluded him so far - The Premiership

Man Utd, well, what can you say, the defence of their Premiership crowen might not have gone to plan in finishing 3rd, however, runners up in Champions League and a domestic cup double, Im sure the gaffer will be happy with that. Europe will be the main thing on the agenda for season 8

So that's it in a nutshell - we all got a trophy and a broken heart somewhere along the line

Roll on season 8

Lively start to life in season 8.

I myself am pleased to have claimed the Shield with a 2-1 win over Man Utd
Meanwhile Pep has slipped up in both the World Club Cup and the Super Cup.
Ian has had a shaky start in the league, claiming just 1 point from the 1st 2 matches

Whilst we all continue to build our reserves/youth teams, as pointed out before, its all about locating them little gems that have been regenerated into the game. I've just offloaded Yokoslu for 91M and luckily for me, Charly Musonder is an equal replacement ready and waiting.
Pep and Ian have just shook hands on a player exchange deal, and Ian also landed a nice little 19 year Brazilian ahead of myself. Pep's weakness is possibly his keeper, so am sure he'l have his targets.

Meanwhile Ian is on the brink of leading Ireland to the 2022 World Cup finals, a draw against the Swiss in the last qualifying game will be enough. Credit where its due, he didnt inherit the greatest of teams, and its not as if he can go buy like we do at club level

So a nice little Sunday session comes to a close, as us net game veterans now decide to spend sometime with our families. :)

11-05-14, 08:42 PM

As for Ireland...top of WC qual group with 1 game home to swiss....but swiss and wales on 13pts alongside Ireland so gonna be a close call!.....some achievment getting them to WC.....

Scunny have bought well but yokulu will be major loss....
Southampton losing the super cup and club cup was a surpise....they do have world club cup in january to go for...(but it will provide a fix back log at end of season to get through!)...all in all a good start and another competitve season on its way!

A mega 4 and half hour session has propelled the 8th season towards its close...
A dire dire campaign for me (UTD)...decided to blood the youngsters this year and got rid of a few old dead woods....its taken its toll....quite respectable in the league....but will finish 3rd behind Scunthorpe and Southampton this year for sure....(too many losses to them )...dismal perfromance in CL..not getting out of 2nd group....lost in semis of League Cup....I do have a small consolation prize as im still in FA cup...fingers crossed...hopefully this poor season will benefit my squad (not looking to buy any first choice players during the summer at all)

Southampton lost both the world club trophy and euro super cup surprisingly...but did take the world club championship in january....they did have 5 games to catch up and are slowly eating into the lead of Scunthorpe....but i think the fixture pile up will prove to much...

Could be a quad for scunny this year....still in all comps and looking strong...

one more sesh should decide the trophies!

Offside Trap
18-05-14, 11:10 AM
As stated above - a monster of a 4 hour session, for me personally, was 4 hours well spent. Southampton still have 2 games in hand, but still 7 points off me. Although the The Saints have had a run of drawing games, you'd feel the Iron's blip of form could be right out around the corner, if so, then the title will be blown right open. Having won the League Cup against them too, I'm in a good position as I'm about to take on Man Utd in the F A Cup semi's, the one competition that could save the Red Devils' managers job :)

As for Champions League - in fairness, Man Utd had a group of death in their 2nd Phase, and were unlucky not to make the quarters. Now although the gaffer has ruled himself outta winning the league, these Mourinho's tactics wont work on me wont work on me :)
But the Red Devils team certainly will be battling on all fronts next season Im sure, as their are some little gems

Sothampton are the team to beat in Europe having won the Cl for the last 2 seasons but their main aim this season Im sure is to win the Premiership as its the cup to have eluded them so far, for Scunthope, its the CL that I want, and as for Man Utd, its all about next season, The F.A Cup and dont rule them out of this seasons title.... just yet

Offside Trap
25-05-14, 02:10 PM
Season 8 comes to a close, and an interesting end to say the least. It went down to the wire, but the goal difference proved decisive at the end. Scunthorpe retained the Premiership, their 4th in 5 years. Whilst Southampton were shocked in the CL final against Barcelona where they lost 2-0 to 2 90th goals. So only trophy for Pep this year was the World Club Cup. Scunthope claimed the League Cup earlier, but the F.A Cup was a shock, Ian's Man Utd were shocked 3-2 against Hull, therefore a trophyless season for the Red Devils, but the Gaffer has the World Cup to look forward to, with his Ireland squad, something the other 2 gaffers have yet to explore.

As the grooming of youngsters continue on all fronts, Man Utd looking promising, with some up and coming stars. Southampton possibly need to strengthen there 1st team class in order to deal with fixture pile ups, something that surely affected them during season 8. Scunny meanwhile, are selling a few fringe players and bringing in some more youth.

The search continues for the new gen players, as all 3 of us, try to stay 1 step ahead of the other 2. Pre Season will be about Ireland for Ian whilst myself and Pep will have some time to prepare for season 9

The Premiership still on the agenda for Southampton, as yet to win it, or maybe re-claim the Euro crown having been denied a hat-trick of titles. Scunthorpe, like last season, will be all about Euro glory im sure, away goal rule is what busted them in the Semi against the eventual champions. As for Man Utd, well the squad is there to challenge on all fronts, although am sure The League and maybe a domestic cup will be welcomed

Roll on season 9

Piss Poor end to a bad season for me....i knew i had to have one to give the youth a chance......hopefully pays off in the future seasons....

worth investing in youth as ALL the talent is at our 3 clubs....nothing worth buying on the market really...

As we kick off season9. Pep is looking good with Southampton, my Scunthorpe have started ok, although Man City have been an early surprise as they currently lead the table. Ian's Man Utd have had a shaky start with few draws, and somewhat 10 points off the pace now.

On the International front, the good work done by Ian for Ireland has lead him to becoming the new England boss. And whilst the Ireland job became vacant as a result of that switch, I decided to try my luck on the international stage. Pep Im sure will be hoping to get an international job at some point, although I feel, first thing on his agenda will be to win the Premiership with Southampton

Youth team at Man Utd looks promising, some decent finds on the Scunthorpe books. Pep meanwhile made a hugh sale in selling Gabigol for 75m, which surprised me, as it is hard to find quality. The regens are hard to locate,

Let crack on

As we sail through season 9, its been an interesting one, to say the least:

The League Cup goes to Man Utd having beaten Scunny in the final on Pens, but Scunny will have a chance to seek revenge as the 2 giants meet in the FA Cup final. Meanwhile in the Champions League, twice winners Southampton will meet Scunny in a mouth watering Semi final clash, whilst Man Utd will play the other semi against current champions, Barcelona

As for the Premiership, its looking good for Scunny, 1 point behind Southampton with 2 games in hand. Man Utd, had another disappointing season again, having slipped up a few times, but still in with a shout on all cups

The highlight of the season, or of the game so far

As we power through to the new year of season 10, that world record of 12 seasons is that little bit nearer.
Still looking for that 1st Premiership crown, Pep's Southampton, lead the table after 22 games, by 1 point
of suprise team 'Man City' who have a 2 point gap over my beloved Scunthorpe, however I have 2 games in
hand, due to my runners up medal in the World Championships (stupid cup) Man Utd are 4 points behind me
in 4th on equal games of 20 played so far.

We're all riding high in the Champions League, where Ian is looking for his Man Utd boys to secure their 1st Euro Cup.
My Scunny are the remaining team from us big 3 left in the Semi of the league cup. We all have home bankers in the F.A
Cup 3rd round

Players are becoming harder and harder to locate, them regens seem to be hiding out, but it just takes time. Money it
seems is no problem, I for one have spent a lot on the building of my reserves as I also see, Man Utd kids looking very
promising. Pep took some stick when bringing in Messi, but at 35, he's failed to shine, but.... atm... they're still top of the
table, and he could have the last laugh

Gabigol's 43m return to England deffo given Man Utd that missing link, that they've needed. Scunnys capture of rivals'
Sothampton LB Chaparro given them the edge for a 2nd generation after Luke Shaws switch 5 seasons ago. Pep is a no-
nonsense manager and wont tolerate players fueling moves and will get rid, Scunny meanwhile will gladly pick up a
bargain so long they can tame them. Man Utd's Zaton and Gotze looking strong this season, could this be their year?
Can Southampton cross the line, or reclaim the Euro crown? Can Scunny go 1 better and win the League Cup along
with everything else?

Only time will tell

As Season 10 gets closer to a conclusion:

Premiership is still blown right open, with Man Utd having the upper hand, goal difference could be the title decider as the Reds have been smashing some in recently. Sunny arent far behind, and Southampton and Man City still in with a shout

CL, all us big guns safely through to the quarters

FA, all us big guns safely through to the quarters, although 2 of us clash, Hmm, interesting

Lg Cp, Sunny take on West Ham in the final

So pretty much everything to play for

As the World Record nears, season 12 is off and running

Credit where it's due for Pep, with his season 11 exploits, I for one felt like slitting my wrists after losing the CL to him aswell as the FA. Hitting 100 points and finishing 3rd in the league, proves just how strong the league is between us 3

On the international front, Ian doing a good job as England boss, with the World Cup around the corner, for me, its a sore subject, having lead Ivory Coast to the World Cup with 2 wins outta 2 and winning the group that I'd inherited, I was then.... SACKED... not happy, and to rub salt in the wounds I've got, Pep gets the Ivory Coast job :)

So it's all to play for, as youth arrives, although money doesnt seem to be an issue, I couldnt turn down a straight 100m offer for Charly Musonda, I for one, have got rid of some dead wood at Glanford Park, including Shawn Parker, question is... have I messed up?

Only time will tell

As stated above, season 12 comes to a close, so credit where its due to Pep, domestic treble again, for me, Im happy to take the champions league, for Ian, well I've given him some help in selling him a player :)

For me and Scunthorpe, yes I sold a Ronaldo regen for 70m + 3 players, who all could break into the first team over the next 12-24 months, so good business. The other 100m i raked in, means, im now at a place where money is of no worry, and whilst I have the players to step up, Im more than confident it will prove to be a good couple of sales.

Southampton continue to look strong, a few new recruits added over the summer, give them stability on an all-ready championship squad.

Man Utd make some impressive signings, so a trophy a must this season.

As for International jobs, I failed as South Korea at the World Cup and therefore resigned, Pep the same after his Ivory Coast failed. England managed 3rd overall, and Ian still going strong there. I've acquired a new post in taking over World Champions Russia, whilst Pep Im sure will apply for the many vacant jobs available on the international stage, as we kick off Euro qualifiers

So the World Record has gone, and I now hear you all saying 'arent you getting bored' answer, Hell No!

Season 13 comes to an end:

Premier League - Man Utd
League Cup - Man Utd
F.A Cup - Man Utd
Champions League - Southampton

So a domestic treble for Ian and his red devils, only downside to his season was his last couple games of the season, couple of thumping's, 1 of which, the Champs League final. A strong team, more than ready can capable of defending the crowns achieved this season

For Pep and Southampton, Champions League glory is a lovely way to finish what had been a season playing 2nd fiddle to Utd from the moment go. So real quality players making their mark, as they will bid to re-claim their crown

For Scunthorpe, and me, my worse season to date, nothing to scream about what so ever, paid the ultimate price for selling key players. Onwards and upwards, have a good average age and final few games were promising which included a 5-0 win against Man Utd

As far as International Management is concerned, Ian and the England boys looking good for qualification to Euro 2028, as are Russia and myself, having taken over the world champions, they too look good for a Euro slot


So us online veterans live to fight on yet another season, as regens dominate most players in the game nowadays, locating them little gems is a battle in itself. The heat is on, as we hit pre-season and prepare for SEASON 14!

Man Utd have an 8 point gap at the top of the league with 10 games to go (11 for me and Pep) We're all pretty much in the CL quarters, and should avoid each other. F.A Cup we all avoided each other in the quarters, so potential theres an explosive Semi clash. Scunny Vs Man U in the league cup final, having just battled out a 4-4 draw, that game will be interesting:

Loving this game more so than since we first started it: Season 15 awaits, after a decent season for each and everyone of us.

For Pep, his Southampton clinched the F.A Cup against me, on pens, although it was a pure revenge mission following me winning the Champs League Semi battle. His 3rd place finish and his Cup will keep the fans at bay. As he shifts out some dead wood, and the squad looking very decent, question is, are they old enough to make a challenge on the title?

For Ian, defended the title Im sure would have been first priority, so in that respect, job done. Some players leaving for big dosh. Russian Captian arriving for the heart of defence, can the Devils gain revenge on Scunny in domestic cups? The squad looks stronger than ever, as Zaton reaches the twilight of his career, as a squad, they have it all

For me, winning a trophy was main focus, the League Cup against Man Utd was the start, in fairness, I didnt expect to make such a late challenge for the title, which ended in misery on the last day of the season, not to mention losing the FA Cup, but winning the Champions League, all be in, against the run of play, made up for the last couple seasons of misery. So abit of tweaking in the squad, nothing major

So that's it really in a nutshell, as we begin pre-season leading to season 15. Ian will have his England battling at the Euro 2028 whilst I take my Russia there too. Pep been abit unlucky on the international front

So season 16 is off and running after a monster of a session on Sunday which saw us conclude season 15 and power through pre-season. I've taken the shield :) woop woop but I have to agree with Pep, I've be doing everything in my power to prevent a 4th straight title at Man Utd, I'm sure Ive helped that case though following our bit of business over the summer. Pep too has also done some wheeling and dealing with me, so I'm.... pretty confident for the new season, so far.... so good

In fairness, Man Utd are stronger than ever, especially up top, with what looks like regens of Ronaldo,Bale,Messi,Ibrahaimovic but question is, are they secure defensively?

Pep meanwhile has some decent players coming though, but even I was shocked to have a bid accepted for a superstar (messi regen) and although Man Utd won his signature, I feel selling such talent to a rival.. could prove.. critical

Speeding through season 16 with roughly 12 games to go. That's what happens when the wife goes away for half term with the kids :) my joblist is almost complete Im sure the wife will agree, finishing the season in record time is a number 1 priority:

We're all still fighting in the CL, as per usual, question is, who will land who in the Semi, as thats the case every year. As holders of the League Cup, Pep ensured I wouldnt retain following a 1-0 at my ground, however Man Utd then thumped him 4-0 in the Semi 1st Leg. We're still there in the F.A Cup 5th Round. As for the league, im having a decent run which sees me top, Man Utd are somewhat 10 points behind with a game in hand, but theres some big games to come between us which ultimately will decide the title. Pep having a torrid run with dropped points coming from all angles. Having your keeper sent off twice in as many matches doesnt help, rewarded with a 7 game ban. Cardiff are the surprise team up there in the top 4. They've built a team now, not a title threat but a hurdle for each of us where the others can take advantage

PepeP
01-11-14, 10:16 AM
I Thoroughly Agree, Finishing Then Season In Record Time MUST Be No.1 Priority :happy:.

Goalkeeper Is The Reason For My Struggles, So I Was Happy To Flog Him To Scunny For 32.5m BEFORE His 7 Game Ban Begins!

Dominating Games By Shots For Example 25-1 But Losing 1-0, And That's Just Not Good Enough!

So It Seems The Saints Are Destined For A Third 3rd Place Finish In 3 Seasons.

Major Rebuilding Is A Must To Keep Me Up There In The Title Race For Future Or I Could End Up Visiting The Job Centre!

Season 16 finished and in record time!

Scunthorpe won the first title in 7 years!
And to top it off they also took the champions league by beating ian's man Utd in a close fought game.

Man Utd finished 2nd for the first time in 5 years. They nabbed the league cup by defeating division 1 preston!
They also took the world club championship, intercontinental cup and the European super cup.

Me (Southampton) suffered the worst finish under my management with a shocking 4th place finish! A whole 14 points behind man utd in 2nd place. An FA Cup victory kept me in the hot-seat for now!
Drawing too many games has been my downfall of a long season BUT as they say .................................................. .....................

Onwards and upwards!

Major firesale at st. Mary's including a neymar regen joining the Scunthorpe regime. Keeping all players happy is proving to be a major problem for all of us as players keep fueling moves in an attempt to force there way out!

Decent review of the season Pep..

small margins at the moment....
Utd away to scunny....lost 3-2 was the decider fcor the title...and 1-0 in CL final!...difference between success and failure!

4 titles on the bounce was just a touch too far....

keeping 90% of my Utd squad ...the quality is there....

Scunny are the ones to beat now!..
Saints were piss poor....the 1 trophy kept pep in a job!!

England flew through their group in World Cup and beat Italy in last 16.....hopefully the can win the big one!!!

Season 17 is off and running, building all over the shop from the 3 of us. Youth blending through, dead wood being chucked out. It's all very very exciting. The Shield, Intercontinental, Super Cup, have all gone with me in last night's session. Although we all know what we really really want, The Premier League Crown and the Champions League, then theres the 2 domestic cups to fight for

As we're over a dozen games into season 17, I felt it's time for an over-see as to what's been happening over the last 16 years. And for a quick low-down, have a look at the screenshots via sendspace, can someone let me know if they all came out ok

So far this season, not the kind of the start Ian (Man Utd) would've wanted, 3 defeats so already their's some catching up to do. Having said that, the forward line is outstanding, in what looks like regens of Messi, Bale, Neymar and Ibrahimovic, it could just be.... that the 4 arranged friendly matches in pre-season have back-fired, who knows... but for sure there's some fire power up there

For Pep, (Southampton) an early elimination on pens in the League Cup, wont have pleased him. His Charity Sheild loss too wasnt exactly the perfect start. But slowly and surely, Pep is building, and over the last 4 years hes failed in the League, he's certainly becoming a cup team

Me, (Scunthorpe) to be honest, things have never been better, for the last 6 seasons prior to last, I was in the shadows, a few bad-timed sales back-fired rapidly, but some good buys and good youth certainly paying off in dividends. The Shield, Super and Intercontinental are all welcomed. And a decent start to the season

Every season their's a teams that pulls a few surprises, last season it was Cardiff, but credit where it's due, this season, Its Peterborough (ironic as its mine and pep's hometown) who lead the table with just 1 defeat (against scunny) and have won all their other games. Aston V could be the new bogey team, they've taken 3 points of both Man U and Southampton so far this season.

Money is still of no problem, for me, Im refusing 100m bids from Germany for the simple fact, these world class squad players can't be replaced. As Ian has stated prior, the main players that would improve one anothers squad, belong to the 3 of us already. Having said that, Pep is a ruthless gaffer, and will ship out anyone who fuels moves, turns up late for training, which has lead to BIG transfers between us.

Season 17 Just came to a shocking close!

Saints pick up the premiership for the first time in 6 seasons. On top of that also a 1-0 victory over scunny in the champions league final giving the saints the trophy for the first time in 4 seasons.

Red devils finished 3rd but picked up both domestic cups, with a 4-1 thrashing of scunny in the league cup and a close fought 3-2 victory over the saints.

Scunny finished 2nd but picked up the 3 worthless trophies at the start of the season - charity shield, intercontinental cup and the super cup. As it turns out, it's these 3 trophies that keep chambers in the hot seat for now...

Hands Up! I didnt produce the goods that the fans wanted, however my record speaks for itself, so I have no worries about my job being safe as houses: Rebuilding has commenced with 2 key players leaving as they reach towards 32 years of age, some decent fringe players go, and some youth promoted following good loan spells.

It means I have an extended pre-season as I wont be involved in the shield, so searching for them gems is key, as it is for all of us. So season 17 to a close, as we look to kick in season 18, this world CM record reaches a new chapter!

1 more session should conclude season 18. Premiership is more than certainly heading back to Old Trafford after a 2 year absence. It was glory for Southampton who 'stole' the League Cup on penalties. As for the F.A Cup, my Scunthorpe and Pep's Southampton will battle it out. The Champions League, we're all there in the Semi.

So....

Will the cup jinx continue this season for Man Utd?
Can Pep steal the FA Cup like he did the League?

As we approach the 1 year anniversary since we kicked off our current game. Here we are... mid flow into season 19. We are the 3 big teams of the world, theirs no question about that. The fallen giants of Real/Milan etc... pretty much dont have a squad of more than 12 players. As for domestically, their's always a team who causes a few upsets here and there, recently, Peterborough started season 18 off very bright Cardiff the year before, Aston V causing problems, Hull a bogey team, but no one near to being a championship winning team. The battle is always between the 3 of us. its the games against one another that really conclude this.

Me, Scunthorpe, the most loyal man in the world, been with them since the start. Bought them through the ranks, was first from the 3 of us to claim the Premiership. To be honest, dominated when the current big guns were building. Although averages out at a trophy per season

Pep, Southampton, was first to jump ship when he'd started off with Mansfield, on way to leading them out of the 2nd tier, he took on his new challenge, and lead them to runners up in his first season in the top flight. Pep has a very good success rate in the Champions League, and is known for his ruthlessness, as he wont tolerate anyone disrupting the squad and quickly moves to sell them, even if that means selling to a rival

Ian, Man Utd, having lead Wycombe to the top flight, took over a dis-mantled Old Trafford outfit. Credit where it's due. he has transformed them into the giants they were back in the 90's. Has a habit of developing fringe players into superstars, in doing so, works his reserves brilliantly. Got a good eye for that little gem knocking about. Is the team to beat and has been for the last few seasons.

On the International front - Ian has been England boss for many many seasons, and recently lead them Euro Glory. The World Cup still awaits. I've recently got the Spain job, with an aim for that to be long term, following spells with Ivory Coast (sacked after 2 wins) and Russia whilst Pep hasnt had much look, and having to settle with the non-euro countries. At present, he is seeking a country to take to the world cup

After a session last night to kick start the new year, season 20 is up and running:

Up until the save, we all had 100% records to the season, but the 1st of the big games saw Man Utd win 3-0 at Southampton. With Utd already having won the shield,and the minor early season trophies, the gaffer has enjoyed Leading England to Confederations glory over my beloved Spain, and the team at Old Trafford looking very sharp indeed

With Both England and Spain already heading to the forth-coming world cup, can Pep land an International job that he can sustain. Meanwhile, Pep's club form needs a kick-start, the recent defeat against the rivals was met with angry protests from the fans at St Marys

Meanwhile, Scunthorpe, who have spent a bob or 2, will look to continue their good league form, although to have a chance of retaining the title, they have to take points in the crunch games that really count.

PepeP
04-01-15, 05:50 PM
As we enter February of season 20 it is the 3 of us at the top once again.

Scunny top the lot with a 5 point lead ahead of the saints in 2nd. 2 points separate the saints and the red devils but the devils are playing catch up with 3 games in hand due to the world club cup. We all have dozens of youngsters pushing there way towards the 1st team but injuries and red cards push squads to the bare bones.

We are all safely through to the fa cup 5th round, whereas a heartbreaking penaly shootout defeat elimanted the men from st. marys in the league cup quarters.

The devils take a 2-0 lead into the 2nd leg of their league cup semi against the league leaders.

All 3 of us are walking the cl group stages and we all can taste the trophy.

Ian's England are heading to the world cup as are Mikey's Spain.


And the big news is:-

I am going aswell!!

im heading to try my luck at the world cup with the underdogs of japan.

18-01-15, 08:11 PM
20 Years and counting!!

It all started in back in 2014 when 3 managers went to the 3rd division looking for a club...

Mikey - Scunthorpe
Ian - Wycombe
Pep - Mansfield

The first few seasons all 3 teams powered through the leagues...

Mikey's Scunthorpe had the edge from the off with some great sales and the abilty to buy better quality Ian and Mikey were always a division below and a standard below...

Things began to change when PEP moved to the Southampton job in 2017 and Ian moved to the Utd job in 2019

the 5 yrs between 2014-15 and 2018-19 looked like this
Mikey (scunthorpe) 5 titles...(3rd/2nd/1st and Prem x 2).... 1 FA cup....1 League Cup....1 Vans Trophy
Pep (Mansfield/Southampton) 1 title (3rd div)...1 FA cup...1 charity Shield...
Ian (Wycombe/Utd) 2 titles (1st and 2nd div) ..1 vans trophy...

As you can see....mikey was steamrollering his way throught the trophies....

However from the 2019 - 2020 season things began to even up

We're into season 21, and a flying start from the champions Scunny, see's them on top with 9 out of 9 and not conceding a single league goal. Whilst Man Utd took 3 points in the first of the big games, winning at Southampton, they have since slipped up with 2 draws.

A big transfer involving a quality fringe playing leaving the Champions for St Marys,
Old Trafford have been active in the market too with what could be a couple of gems found.
Whilst Scunny clear out another fringe player to Germany for yet another 100m, fringe players in the reserves look to step up, with loaned out players being recalled

All 3 of us looking good in the first phase of the CL, And Utd have cleaned up in their South American cups, and with Scunny stealing the shield from the Saints on pens, it's still all to play for in these early days

If anyone has any specific questions about any part of the game, feel free to ask

Offside Trap
26-01-15, 01:24 PM
Another decent session last night see's us into March of season 21. All to play off at the top as Sunny lead Utd by 2 points on equal games. A dip in form saw Scunny go out the League Cup and slip up to their 2 biggest rivals, but whilst Utd recently have slipped up with a couple of draws and a heavy defeat against the Saints, the season is likely to go right down to the wire. Southampton are well off the pace, having dropped points all over the shop. But their League Cup Semi Final 2 leg win over Utd could spare the blushes of the men upstairs wanting a trophy.

Meanwhile, We're all still riding high as we enter the Quarters of the Champs League, and have all avoided each other at the same stage of the F.A Cup

02-02-15, 11:54 AM
And so... Season 21 comes to a close:

On the major fronts, it was no trophy for Ian and his Man Utd, although the squad is looking stronger than ever. The attacking line could well peak during season 22

Pep's Southampton proved to be the cup team of the season after they took The League Cup, The FA Cup against Utd and then the Champs League on pens against Scunny. Although finishing out the top 2 yet again, its no secret the gaffer needs a Premiership crown sooner rather than later

Scunny retain the Premiership, once again, for the 2nd time, its a hatrick of title for the Iron men. The squad is looking good, their's some good ages too, but Champs League is a must next season

A short break from the game has allowed all 3 of us legends to rest and recuperate after a hectic schedule :cry:!!

Season 22 could be the year the saints go marching back to the promised land of premier league glory.

A shock drubbing at the hands of scunny in the shield, has been followed by a long winning streak culminating in the saints clutching both the intercontinental cup and the European super cup under their arms.

In the first BIG game of the season scunny hosted the saints and were left crying after a 2-1 defeat.

We all safely made it through the 1st phase of the champions league which is a MUST. Also all 3 of us made it to the league cup 4th round!

The saints offloaded yet another 2 unhappy souls over to scunny along with a young scottish international striker with a decent record (26 Caps 19 Goals) who struggled to break into the saints 1st team.

The red devils top league with 11 out of 11.
Scunny 2nd with 10 out of 11.
Saints 3rd with 9 out of 9.

A stuttering start on the international front as world cup qualifying as my record as france coach is played 3, won 1 and drew 2.

After a few days break, we should be back on it this week, these odd hour sessions really pay off, and has got us where we are today, around 4 league games into season 24. Pep has already dropped points at home to Aston Villa whilst I'm on 4 out of 4 and Ian tops the charts with 5 out of 5. As we all kick off our champions league games, can Pep retain it, and will the World Championships fixture pile up scupper his Premiership challenge? Can I retain the league after a summer of wheeling and dealing? Can Ian's regen of mega stars lead him to glory on all fronts? - only time will tell -

Over the turn of this season spends and sales are as follows

Scunthorpe - 98m Spent, 184.5m Sales

Man Utd - 44m Spent, 30m Sales (+ a 25m bonus from a 25% add on of a player sold by scunny for 100m)

Southampton - 118m Spent, 90m Sales


So as you can see, Pep has really splashed the cash this season, having not won the title in 6 years, something needed doing at St Marys, and a transfer record of 56m for an ex Saints player could be what the doctor ordered

Ian been less busy in the market this season, mainly, he doesnt need to, whilst youth is at at old trafford, the regen stars already there, really showcase what great attacking power they have

And me, well keeping everyone happy is a tough nut to crack, so although didnt need the money, gotta keep everyone happy and get rid of some dead wood

As we crawl our way through April of season 24 this is the state of play :-

Man Utd lead the way a whole 13 points clear of Scunny in 2nd but have played 2 more games.

Saints a point further back but have 3 games in hand on the leaders.

Saints win the league cup by thumping Scunny 3-0.

Scunny fell at the semi final stage in the fa cup to Ian's united.

Champions League should be a piece of cake to reach the semi's but then depends on who gets the other side.

On the international front Spain ready for the world cup on English soil. The hosts warmed up by losing 3-0 to France. Going down to 9 men can't have helped but I cant help thinking if that happened during the group match between these 2 mega nations, Ian's time in the Wembley hot seat could be coming to a shattering end.

Until next time.

Shaky start by Man Utd sees them lose the shield to the Saints on pens, drop 4 points in the first 2 league games before losing to both the Saints and Scunny in the league, but on the positive side, they claimed the Super Cup and the Intercontinental Cup. Saints lead the table with 38 points out of 42 whilst Scunny sit 4 points behind all be it, with 2 games in hand, having slipped up to a draw once. CL Phase 2 all up and running, and the League Cup Quarters awaits all 3 of us, with Man U will tackling Scunny for a place in the Semi's

Goalkeeping crises is what crushed Utd, with 1st and 2nd choice injured and 3rd being sent off in the game against Scunny. So maybe a keeper on the agenda there, which will add to the rest of the recent impressive purchases

Saints have really invested in Youth this early part of the season with some real gems unearthed, although 33 year old Billy Fowler (Rooney regen) was the shock free transfer recruit, as advised by the board apparently

Scunny quite active in the market following last seasons disaster, few youngsters bought in to train not to mention the 6 players sent out on loan, and couple few remaining superstars around the globe, also bought in to balance the squad.

As we enter December of the year 2038 (we started in 2014 btw) Its all looking good for all of us:

The international front looks like this, my beloved Spain looking good for Euro 2040 with 3 wins outta 3, Coming upto 6 1/2 years in charge, although some stars starting to age. The pain of losing the World Cup Final for a second time on the bounce is gonna be hard to take, especially against a rival

Ian's England claimed that very Cup, which was the remaining trophy for any of us not to have won. He too is looking good in the Euro's with 4 outta 4 - after 16 1/2 years in charge, the gaffer will have to search on the rising stars to break through

Pep might of though he had his dream job (pre world cup) but after being knocked out in group stage, only thing waiting for him when he returned was the sack. But he bounced back by being given the Belgium job who have a decent squad to work from, except, his Euro group includes England, Round 1 has gone to the World Champions as Pep currently sits 2nd with 3 outta 4 but will fancy his chances as finishing best 2nd place team

As we enter January of season 25, this is the state of play:-

The mighty saints are sitting pretty at the top 10 points ahead of scunny who sit 4 ahead of the devils.

Drawing his first 2 games is what's costing ian and his devils their chance of lifting yet another premier league trophy.


League cup semi finals saw the elimination of scunny at the hands of the devils, whilst the saints needed extra time to book their place in the final.

After this defeat scunny have struggled for form in the league, but the main question is - Will chambers justify his new deal?? Time will tell


We are all still flying high in the champions league amd the fa cup 3rd round is just around the corner.

until next time. :brick:

The FA Cup for me was lucky, very lucky, in fairness, Pep's Saints looking very strong, and as pointed out, it should always be about the big games in the season, between 1 another, so credit where its due to Mr Pep

Now having spent a quarter of a century in charge at Scunny, its time for me to Put Up or Shut Up, I've got the squad more than capable of tackling the Saints not to mention The Red Devils

As we approach season 26, the 2 legends and myself continue to take 'Network CM' by storm. But also as pointed out by Pep, we seem to have side-tracked abit from this 3 way game in favour of our alternative 6-way game

Quite a season going on. Pep's victory in the World Championships will not have helped, hes a some points behind now after dropped matches, and although a few games in hand, he really needs to rely on the big boys slipping up

My Scunthope - well, they always lose the big ones, crushed in the shield and recently beaten at home to Utd but winning the 3 games in hand could claim top spot

Utd sit proudly on top, with some real decent gems purchased and what looks like a squad to rule for at least the next 5 years

England deserved Euro 2040 winners, against my Spain in the final. After 8 years with Spain, 1 Euro crown, 1 Confederations and 2 World Cup runners up medals, its time to focus on club football only for the time being. As rebuilding has commenced at Scunthorpe, over 200m spent over the summer, which a few Ex-players making a return. Only time will tell what season 28 has installed for us

Storming through season 27, after a couple of decent sessions which has seen the Premiership become a 2 horse race between Utd and the Saints. My blip of form for Scunny cost me the Champs League aswell as my Premiership challenge. So Uefa Cup quarters await as does a League Cup final against the Saints, and a quarter final replay for both myself and the Saints in the FA Cup, where' we've avoided a clash in the semi's should we get there. A shock saw Utd eliminated in the 5th round, but with the League and Champs League in sight, they will always have been top of the list

As it stands, goal difference separates the top 2 with Pep having the upper hand with a swing of +12. Both teams with 83 points from a possible 87. And my fallen giants sit in 3rd 11 points of the pace. Quality of players remains between the 3 of us with just under 300 Million spent by myself since end of last season, thats right - 300M and I may well have nothing to show for it. Champions Utd only needed to spend 13 Million as the squad was pretty much set from last season. 116 Million was spent by the Saints as they look to bring back the title.

As it stands the domestic trophy count is as follows (worth mentioning ones)

Premierships--FA Cup--League Cups--Champs League---

Myself - Scunthorpe---

10/5/7/5

Ian - Man Utd---

8/6/7/7

Pepe - Southampton---

5/9/8/8

As we slowly make our way through pre-season into season 29 -

Man Utd have undergone a massive overhaul, with a number of players leaving and new ones arriving, could this be the way they get back into the trophy hunt?

Scunthorpe have cleared the decks with a lot of deadwood leaving and a few new faces arriving to boost there ranks including a contract rebel left back from the champions.

Southampton have had to release a couple of reserves who just couldn't make the grade to make space for the next generation of youngsters. Also sold an unhappy striker for 125m to Germany, with ready made replacements to cover and money no object is it a mistake to sell??

Premier League - Man Utd lead by 1 point over Scunthorpe having played a game more. The saints are 7 points behind the leaders with 2 games in hand. Saints suffered 2 defeats straight after the successful World Championships (Curse?) where they defeated Scunny in the final. Whilst United dropped points to a nemesis for this season - WELSH CLUBS! :music:

League Cup - Shock early eliminations for both United and Scunny leaves the saints in pole position to retain the trophy they walked away with last season.

I can confirm, we're on season 30, :)

And as stated above, Pep's Saints looking to claim their 8th Premiership, with a superb start to the season, whilst Utd and Scunny have slow starts

My own personal best of a sale went in the summer, selling to Bayern for 200m (100 upfront and 100 after 1 international) which along with Bayerns other spending of another 412m, has seen them current declared bankrupt, yep, thats right, so Im sure I speak for all 3 of us when I say, we're all keeping tabs on their star players

On the International front, Ian still doing a grand job with England, has lead them to everything available, although locating decent English talent isnt easy, whilst Pep's Belgium continue to do well. As for myself, I had the Brazil job, whom I led to Copa America glory (only person to do this) and was eliminated by England in the Confederations Cup, before resigning. I think has an African Nations Cup winners medal to his name somewhere

Wow - after a hell of a few sessions over the weekend, season 30 is complete

Premiership - Southampton

F A Cup - Scunny

League Cup - Man Utd

Champs Lg - Scunny

A complete overhaul at Man Utd, as Ian has splashed the cash in a massive way, after dropped points at the start of the season proved costly, the bank card has come out with some decent purchases, and will surely be a push next season. Pep's dream of the Quad, just fell apart, but he'l be happy with his Premiership title, a few tweaks here and there. My scunny enjoyed a decent end to the season, and too have made a few tweaks. Who knows what season 31 has installed

As Euro 2044 gets underway, both Pepe's Belguim and Ian's England have been eliminated at the group stage. Time will tell if they keep their jobs, but tbf, Englands record speaks for itself so should be safe

We begin season 31.

Both myself and Ian were both given the boot by our respective F.A'S. Ian ended up TRYING to fill my boots after being handed the reigns at Belguim.

As previously stated a few tweaks to all 3 of our squads especially Ian's red devils who splashed out over 150m on new talent to bolster his squad.

Can he get them to gel in time to push forward to the premier league title?

For me, its been yet another shocker of a Premiership season, looks like 3rd, thats 8 year years with out a title. Pep has claimed the League Cup against myself with a 3-2 win. Whilst The Saints will meet Utd in the F A Semi and my Scunny in the other Semi.

After a monster weekend which included 4 hours Saturday and a couple last night, season 33 is concluded.

Man Utd Claim the the Premiership which now sees my Scunthorpe go 10 years without winning the title.

Southampton claimed the League Cup against lower division opposition after Scunny knocked Utd out, then the Saints knocked Scunny out.

Man Utd narrowly claimed the FA Cup against Southampton on penalties having endured 120 minutes of dominance from the Saints, of 15 shots to 1, but spot kicks proved vital as Utd clinched it

Champions League glory went to myself in Scunthorpe with a golden goal victory over Southampton. A competition which will keep the disgruntled fans at bay for the time being as the Ironmen look to season 34 and challenge for a first title in 11 years

SEASON 34 is over and what can I say!!


My beloved Southampton walked away with all the trophies with another quad.

A world club cup trophy for Mikey's Scunthorpe was enough to keep him in the hot-seat for another season at least.

The charity shield ended up with the red devils after an undeserved victory over the saints.

So now we sit in the middle of Euro 2048, my Germany have made it through to the semi finals but a heart-breaking exit via the golden goal rule ended their tournament.

So as we wheel and deal, making tweaks to our various squads, several questions need answering?

1. How long will mikey survive at Scunthorpe without a premier league title to show for?
2. Will ian's red devils walk away with anything this season?
3. How many of the saints 4 trophies can they successfully defend as we enter season 35?

TIME WILL TELL!!

Until next time!

Im speechless, that session tonight totally killed me, I lost all 3 cups to you in the final and the back log of games, (which were against you 2) sandwiched with the CL Semi 2 matches against Utd, just took its toll

But... Ive tweaked here and there, I had many positives to take from that season, namely, I can still compete, and in fairness, that's possibly 1 of the best seasons we've had as far as a 3 horse race is concerned. It had it all, but.. you came good, I admit, well done ;)

Season 35 coming along nicely as we approach Xmas of the year 2048 - getting some decent time in, which is down to the wife working nights, ;) but firing through season at real good pace

Man Utd lead the way with 46 points from a possible 48

Scunny in 2nd with 40 from a possible 45

Southampton with 30 from a possible 39

So been a tough start for last seasons Quad winners, after defeats against the big 2 along with a shock loss at Woking, whilst Utd and Scunny battled out a draw, being the only 2 points Utd have dropped, whilst Scunny also lost ground following defeat at Swansea.

All systems go in the CL and League Cup with all the big guns advancing, with a possible League Cup semi final clash between Utd & the Saints a strong possibility

Some real gems being unearthed and some youth breaking through nicely on all the big 3, with sending players out on loan real key, in order for limited 1st team action.

On the International front, Ian's Brazil are on course for the World Cup of 2050 as they sit top of their South American group with 10 outta 10, whilst Pep's Germany were pitted into the same group as my newly appointed Belgium setup, as it stands, I have the upper hand with 4 outta 4, whilst Germany slipped to a shock defeat against Andorra, but the 2 games against 1 another gonna prove key

Season 35 Is now over and it was a shocker for me!

Scunthorpe win their first premier league crown in 11 years by 3 points over man utd. My saints ended 3rd, after a dismal start to the season, 3 points further back.

Fitness levels played a huge part in the cup finals as Man utd took out a makeshift saints quite easily to walk away with the FA Cup.

Mikey's saints made it a double by walking away with the champions league defeating man utd in the final.

My saints only have the charity shield and the league cup to show for the poor season. hung-over from the celebrating the previous season's quad has been suggested as a reason.


We shall see what season 36 brings!

With no update for a while, its not that we ent been playing - we're powering through season 36, with the F A Cup final around the corner, which will be contested between my Scunny and Pep's Southampton. A rerun of the League final which the Saints claimed with ease. Then the 2 will go head to head in the Champs League final after Scunny knocked out Utd. As far as the leagu is concerned, Its Scunny's to lose, game or so in hand, can put them 9 clear, but 2 away league games to come against Utd & Saints could cause another hiccup then it can go pair shaped -

On the International front, we're all going to the World Cup, with Ian's Brazil looking deadly, my own Belgium an outside bet with such an aging squad, and Pep's Germany, who in fairness have a decent setup, but needed a play off to book their ticket - we're all in different groups for the 1st Round Group Stages

22-02-16, 11:25 PM
Season 36 is now over and what a season it was!

The premier league title is like buses at Scunthorpe! You wait ages for 1 and then 2 come together as they claimed their 2nd successive title.

The f.a cup went to my Southampton with a 2-0 victory over scunny.

The league cup also went to Southampton via another victory over Scunny (3-0)

The champions league also went to the men from st. marys, with a penalty shootout victory over.... GUESS WHO?? (Scunny)

and that means ian's man utd were left crying in 3rd place, meaning a qualifier to get to the champions league.


World Cup 2050 to come and then we will arrive at season 37.


ONWARDS!!

Time for a quick update -

World Cup complete - and in fairness, quite a shock, My Belgium won it, despite using that of the tactics of Brazil/Man Utd, taking out the Samba stars on route. Pep's early exit for Germany cost him his job, as expected, but days later, he was back on the international scene as he took the Colombia job - however, days later the temptation of the upcoming Euro's was too much to resist as he took the Holland job. With Belgium now an aging squad, I decided to resign whilst on top, and took over as Argentina, therefore will go head to head with Brazil a few more times, already Brazil have taken bragging rights with a 3-2 friendly win


So domestically, we're well into Season 37 now, and state of play so far, my Scunny took the Shield on pens to the Saints, whilst my opening league victory came at home to Man Utd, and have scored a point at Southampton in the league already, other than that, we've all started with wins, after minor tweaking in the squads here and there.

Personally, Im finding it harder and harder to locate regen gems, so relying on my players out on loan to develop, not to mention my new formation of using an Attacking Midfielder on each side.

We have taken a short break from this game for 2 reasons.

1. We are in a new 5 way game.

AND

2. Mikey (Offside Trap) has moved house and is awaiting an internet connection.

Hopefully won't be too long!

Back with a bang as we conclude a monster of a session, (2 and a half hours) and season 37 is now complete.

Pep took the League Cup for a 5th successive year, whilst Ian took the F.A Cup and I took the Champs League. As for the Premiership, well that went the distances, right to the death - but it was Scunthorpe that scraped over the finishing line couple points ahead od Utd with the Saints now having to play a qualifier

Tweaks here and there expected during the pre season. Copa America on the agenda for both myself (Argentina) and Ian (Brazil) which will give Pep plenty of time for a rebuild should he feel he needs to

And we're well into season 39 as he approach the festive period. Utd having the upper hand, although Saints ent far behind, whilst my champions have has a poor start having dropped several points already. We all easily take our places in the CL 2nd Phase Groups, and on the International front, Brazil took the Copa, my Argies took the Confederations and Pep's Holland having a decent Qualifying WC run of results

Another 2 hour session done on this tonight - Season 39 well and truly being powered through. Pep's Southampton lookign good for League at this stage, as he won at Utd 4-0 and that with another Utd defeat ensure its the Saints to lose. Although a 100% session from myself, points dropped prior still gonna prove costly is Scunthorpe are looking to be the first team to clinch 4 Premiership titles in a row. All 3 of us safely in the League Cup Semi where my Scunny will take on a Pep's Saints side that haven't lost a League Cup match in over 5 and a half years. We're all through to the 5th Round of the FA Cup and all looking good in our Phase 2 of the CL

Not much to shout about with transfers, as regens becoming harder and harder to locate. its all about bringing in youth, and hopefully sending them out on loan and developing them. We all have a few success rates of that, however, I for one, also have a couple of flops that just haven't made the cut

Pep's Holland looking forward to Euro 2050 whilst my Argentina and Ian's Brazil will just play friendlies here and there, until WC Qualifying commences

After a lengthy lay off from this game, we finally back on it last night with a solid 2 hour session. For some reason we all get our season number wrong from time to time, but I can confirm, its season 38 we have just concluded.

Pepe's Saints took the title ending Scunny's last 3 years of dominance, and also took a 6th straight League Cup on the bounce, his 18th of all time. Southampton also took the F.A Cup against Utd, albeit on Pens, the 14th in the last 38 seasons. So a domestic Treble for Pepe and his Southampton. Team looking strong, although am sure their will be couple of additions over the summer.

Ian's Man Utd settled for the Champions League, his first in 9 seasons, and his 9th overall since we started. Some decent quality coming through the ranks at Old Trafford, and always gonna be a threat

My Scunny - well a piss-poor season, finished 3rd so gonna have to Qualify for the CL and got thumped in the CL Final against a deadly Utd. So a trophyless season and an overhaul of players coming and going. Work to be done.

Onwards to season 39, the real season 39

After a split couple of sessions today, we safe to say, we're back on this. Well into season 39 now as we approach Xmas. Pepe looking for a 7th League Cup triumph on the bounce, and he's made to the final once more, where he'll meet me after I just edged Ian in our Quarter Final clash

All of us looking good in the CL although I settled for runners up in the 1st phase after a poor start, and the possibility was that I could end up in a phase 2 group with 1 of my rivals, but avoided that.

Our squads, all looking as strong as ever, abit of tinkering here and there, nothing major, unless you're ruthless like me that when a player does poor in his 1st game, he get's put in the reserves, okay maybe Im not that bad, but the guy who just got his 3rd red card in 13 games, he can get out :yield:

So we hit March of season 39, and the year is 2053. Man Utd looking good for their 1st title in 5 years, as they have a 7 point gap over the champions Southampton, with a further 3 points lead over 3rd placed Scunthorpe. With 9 games remaining for all of us, still time for twists and turns as Utd need to host the Saints and play at Glanford Park.

The League cup final will consist of Scunthorpe and Southampton with the latter looking for a 7th straight final victory, their last defeat in this competition stretching back to 20th Dec 2046 which came at home to Scunthorpe in the quarter finals

It was an early exit this season for Southampton in the F.A Cup, having said that, they drew Man Utd away in the 3rd Round. It won't be a Human managed final as Utd take on Scunny in the quarters

With 1 game to spare of Phase 2 of the CL, all 3 of us are safely though to the quarters having already won our group


We been on this game since Dec 2013, I think we done a decent job over the period of time, with stop gaps here and there
