In my 4th season with Tenerife, hopefully going to try and break the El Clasico dominance. Might take me a while.

16/17 - 10th in Liga 2 - squad was full of pensioners and shite, made a late play off push but wasn't enough
17/18 - 2nd in Liga 2 - Recruited well and had some great results but never really looked capable of winning it. Levante were just too good.
18/19 - 12th in La Liga - Fantastic season, don't think we ever fell lower than 16th during the whole campaign. Managed to pick up 7 points from our home games v Barca, Real and Atleti and also had some cracking wins on the road.
19/20 - 11th - Was hoping to get into the top half so a little disappointing. Huge turnover of players was probably too much of a gamble. Only finished 6 points off Europe though, so it was pretty close.
20/21 - Top of the league with three wins from three, top half is the realistic aim but would love to do more than that.

Team

Busti (RG)
San Emertio Borja Nunes Ricca
Fede (c) Crisetig
Canos Lopes Nathan
Maupay

Was a bit pissed off that we lost Enes Unal, our top scorer with 27 goals last season. We had him on loan from City and I was pretty confident we'd get him on a free when his contract expired but he followed the money to Seattle. Hopefully Maupay will be even better.

I started one with Liverpool n signed Michael Keane, Nastasic, Di Sciglio, Yarmolenko and someone else I can't remember who but did shite so went back to my Bradford save where I'm second after 18 games and going along nicely.


Promoted with City. Mid table in the Championship after about 15 games, so I went back to Liverpool.

Last season I came fourth in the league and did fuck all in the cups. As well as the signings mentioned I brought in William Carvalho for £50, whilst Emre Can went to Barca for £30m. This seemed to turn my fortunes around as I went on a brilliant run and the table finished like:

1. United 94 (lost twice all season lol)
2. Spurs 79
3. Arsenal 79
4. Liverpool 73
-------------------
5. City 73
6. Chelsea 68

Nearly bottled it big time, Hull & WBA home my last two games. 0-0 v Hull and a 79th min winner v WBA lol. Hull, Sunderland and Leicester went down and were replaced by Newcastle, Brighton and Derby.


This season I got my business done early, bringing in Isco for £35m which was quite a good deal. I then brought in Colombian forward Miguel Borja for just £1.4m. He has 6 goals in just 8 starts. Plenty left on loan, with nobody leaving permanently.

I got off to a flying start, winning my first six in all comps, including a 5-3 against City. Aguero got a 23 min hattrick and I was 1-3 down aqt HT. But an 8 minute Borja hattrick in mins 77-85 and a Yarmolenko goal in stoppage time sealed it. I then lost 3 in 4 but one in the EFL Cup which I don't care about and played a young squad all knackered. Unbeaten in 4 including 3 wins - the biggest one a 3-1 win v Atletico in the CL. A crucial win in a group including them and Bayern. If I do the double over Kobenhavn I'll need just a point in Madrid to qualify. The table after 9 games is:

1. Arsenal 25
2. City 22
3. Liverpool 22
4. Chelsea 20
-----------------
5. Swansea 20
6. United 16

Only Arsenal unbeaten whilst Derby and Newcastle still yet to win. Man City's team is ridiculous lol. Hazard £110m, Icardi £45m, Danilo £20m then the season before Moreno £15m.

Karius
Clyne Keane Matip Moreno
Carvalho Milner
Firmino Isco Lallana
Borja

Good backups on the bench too in Nastasic, Di Sciglio, Wijnaldum, Coutinho, Origi, Sturridge etc Smile

Good league position, in my hands to qualify in CL, and out of the shit cup.

Finally got round to buying FM. Started the classic FC United save and doing alright nothing special.

4th - Worcester - 27
5th - Salford - 24
-------------------------
6th - Gainsborough - 24
7th - Harrogate - 24
8th - Tamworth - 23
9th - FC United - 23
10th - Chorley - 20

Sitting in 9th which isn't bad but would much prefer to be in play-offs which I am aiming for. Only lost 4 games all season but conceding late goals is letting me down. AFC Fylde are running away with the league. Have Bury in the first round FA Cup dont really expect much.

I bottled it in the title race Crying or Very sad With about 4 games left it was in our hands, win every game and it's ours. But we lost 3-1 at Newcastle which meant going into the final game we had to hope United & Arsenal would lose, and we win. TBF it looked on when Arsenal were 3-0 down to Southampton and United were 0-0 at Stamford Bridge, but they scored and I conceded at home to Brighton which meant it was all but over. We went on to draw 2-2, but with City losing we claimed 3rd and made in straight into the CL group stages. FA Cup win too Smile

United 82
Arsenal 79
Liverpool 78
City 76

WBA 35
Palace 30
Derby 20

Good season on the whole. Lost to Madrid 1-1 on away goals in CL QF Crying or Very sad

My best team based on average rating was:

Karius
Clyne Keane Matip Moreno
Carvalho Henderson
Firmino Wijnaldum Yarmolenko
Sturridge

Ward, Sakho, De Sciglio, Milner, Lallana, Origi, Borja. COutinho spent most of the season injured Crying or Very sad

But, it's progress again, a trophy and a good platform to try for 2nd or the title next year. Smile

Finished the first season, promoted through play-offs. Winning the league would of been achievable if I didn't draw so many games.

1. C AFC Fylde - 88
2. Kidderminster - 87
3. P FC United - 78
4. Worcester - 70
5. Salford - 66
---------------------------------------
6. Gloucester - 66

Beat Worcester on aggregate in the play-off semi final 3-2. Then smashed Salford 4-0 in the play-off final. Went on a 12 game unbeaten run towards the end of the season to challenge for the title but my title charge ended when I lost 2-1 to Brackley.

FA Cup - K/O Round 2 v Portsmouth

Well finished my 1st season in the National League and bottled the play-offs against Wrexham.

1. C Barrow - 90
2. Forest Green - 86
3. P Wrexham - 85
4. FC United - 84
5. Grimsby - 83
----------------------------------
6. AFC Fylde - 80

So annoyed that we bottled it against Wrexham. My front three were basically the MSN of non-league. All 3 of them having average ratings of 7.15 or above.

This season I really want to kick on and look to win the national league, wanted to turn the club into a proffesional team but the board are rejecting my requests.

Top Scorer - Petros Skapetis - 23
Highest Average Rating - Petros Skapetis - 7.43
Most Assists - Luke Thomas - 16

Starting our 10TH season with Tenerife now. Yet to win La Liga, but we are getting closer. Neal Maupay might be the best striker I've ever had on FM, he gets 25+ every season and even won the European golden boot a few seasons back. Regens are turning 26/27 now and we are starting to bring in world class players so I'm confident we aren't far off really competing with Madrid and Barca. Finally got my first piece of silverware in the save with the Copa Del Rey last season.

Back to back titles in 2027/28 and 2028/29 (last season). Another couple of Copa Del Rey's also. Lost to Man Utd in the CL final to a shite goal in the 93rd min when there was only 2 mins added on. No injuries or nothing.  Rolling Eyes  #FergieTime

Started a career with Carlisle, only in August at the moment. Been doing average in League 2 with 1 win and 3 draws, but we have beaten Bradford 3-1 in the League Cup and just beat Brentford 4-1 with ten men. This has to be up there with one of my greatest victories. We've also just drawn Chelsea away in the 3rd round.

Currently in my 3rd season with Maidstone United...

16/17 - Finished 1st in the Vanarama National League. Unexpectedly smashed the league, finished about 10 points clear of Aldershot who were 2nd.

17/18 - Finished 14th in League 2. Was worried with my form at the start but then we picked up the pace with a late Play-off push but that swiftly ended with 2 defeats and 1 draw to end the season.

18/19 - Currently in October and sitting in 4th in League 2. This league is so tight 3 points split 9th and 2nd. Defiantly want to get promoted this season. Haven't tampered with the team too much from last season but hopefully we can do the job.

Team (4-3-2-1) -

Stanek
Plummer Arthurworrey Lancashire(c) Passley
Lesniak Lacey Patten
Taylor Fitzpatrick
Loza

Lesniak is a Slovakian maestro, scored at least 5 screamers last season all from 25+ yards. Arthurworrey looks a real talent too, picked him up on a free in my first season after being released by Fulham.

Lesniak is a Slovakian maestro, scored at least 5 screamers last season all from 25+ yards. Arthurworrey looks a real talent too, picked him up on a free in my first season after being released by Fulham.

18/19 - Finished in 4th and won the play-offs. Proud of that as we had no where near the standard of team we needed to get promoted.

19/20 - Finished 14th in Sky Bet League One. Solid first season, had a good run but ran out of legs and fell down a bit towards the end.

20/21 - Currently sit 7th in League One. Again hopefully going for Play-offs and hopefully will achieve.

Team (4-3-2-1) -
Stanek
Kenlock Guehi Belgian-Regen Reid
Hessenthaler Maric Warrington
Loza Broadhead
Barnes

Teams much more stronger now. What a signing Barnes is, 12 games 10 goals. Picked up Warrington (Regen) from Liverpool in 19/20 and he spent the season on loan at Dover, came back and is really finding his feet at League 1 level. Need to improve on Hessenthaler and Stanek and then the team would look solid.

Into 2035/36 now and we are currently off the back of three successive league titles. Still can't win the CL though, won't stop until I do Laughing
