    Second season in The Championship with The Lads saw a play-off final win. Had to get past Boro in the Semis and thought we were going to blow it in the second leg, 2-1 up on aggregate and with 30 minutes left Max Power got himself sent off for a second yellow card as I was about to sub him off :lol:. Had to play Norwich in the final and smashed them 4-0 courtesy of an Alex Mowatt Hat-Trick, he's well worth getting and playing/training into an advanced playmaker or box to box midfielder. Signed him from Barnsley in The Championship and he looked decent and chipped in with the odd goal but he just went nuts last season and scored 19 in 38 games. Re-loaned Alexander Isak from Dortmund who hit 27 goals once he got a proper pre-season under him and played weekly. Lynden Gooch got himself 13 and Ollie Watkins got 19.

    Started well so far in the Prem, 1-0 win away to Burnley, beat Wolves 2-1 at home, lost 2-0 to Chelsea Away and just beat Villa 4-2 at home. Managed to get Kyle Walker-Peters and Sofiane Boufal on free transfers and both look great accusitions, Isak is in his third loan spell as didn't have the finances to make it permanent, also managed to get Sandro Tonali from Brescia but I don't think he'll be here long .

    Mind, The Don's a bit shit at negotiating contracts. He took the responsibility off me when it looked like we were gonna fail FFP and he negotiated with my keeper Dean Henderson that he can go to a Champions League side for 6.25 mil when he's now worth 12mil and his agent won't even take a contract offer into consideration.

    To an extent at the start but certainly when it comes to tactics it works out better to be fairly consistent.

    Team training I leave to coaches but I always have individual players work on PPMs I want them to have etc’.

    Kyle Walker Peters is now an integral part of my team that’s in the Champions league.

    Had him on loan in the Champ and tried to get him on a free but he opted to move to Porto instead. They recently transfer listed him so I got him, he’s edged Serge Aurier out of my starting line up.

    Not played the game loads lately but European results have been good. Top of my group halfway through with wins against Ajax and Monaco, and a 2-2 draw with Juventus. Lagging a bit in the league in 6th which is probably to be expected. I might get sacked if I end up there by the end :lol:

    WHO WAS PHONE Goalkeeper

    It's unplayable with the forced crap 3D graphics, I just want the good old 2D view back OR FIFA level graphics would be class.
  10. Sake, 4th season in Duncan Watmores just been sold for 8 million. worth miles more than that, its January and he has 10 goals and 9 assists

    Donald sold him off his own back :mad:

    You can change it to 2d

    I lost him on a free, wouldn't sign a new contract and wanted to go to a bigger club.

    He went to recently relegated Sheffield Utd and couldn't get in their team and finds himself on loan to Barnsley whilst I'm in the prem :lol:

    It is surprising how shit the graphics are in this game. It's because the devs are all about stat management. The result is already decided when you hit "play". You dod have some influence during the match of course. You could be daft and go all out attack for 20 minutes and that might, well, work haha

    Anyway. Yer a cheating bunch of bassas ye lot. 2nd season with SAFC is fucking annoying. The Brentwood/Fleetwood fixture has me bashing my table again. I can only assume you spent 20m plus to even finish mid-table? My save is toxic, but i'm not giving up on it.

    Looking for the best tactic to implement in League Two, got a good set of players just need a tactic that works.

    Well that's the biggest load of nonsense I've ever heard about Football Manager.
    You're basically claiming if you re-play the same fixture, same tactics, same players 100 times the outcome will always be the same.

    The game is a game of probability and chance, basically a giant steroided up version of Microsoft Excel where it uses various different algorithm's and factor's such as Player Stats, team talks, touchline shouts which all influence the outcome.

    1 error I have noticed in this game however is the hidden chairman stats they have given Stewart Donald - Ellis Short in previous versions had 20/20 for sacking Managers (probably accurate) and I've noticed that Donald loves dishing out the P45's in this year's FM and I've noticed he sells players behind the Managers back (another hidden statistic) neither are a true reflection of Stewart.
    On my FM Jack Ross was sacked after 12 games being 3rd, with that logic JR should already be gone irl.

    I sold him for about 17mil to Brighton then replaced him with Patrick Roberts on a free from City, who I later sold to Watford for 30 odd million then replaced with Adama Traore.

    I recently started a ‘Sort Man Utd out’ save and noticed Sunderland got pumped 6-1 by Charlton on the opening day :lol:

  19. It didn’t make any sense. I had already turned down 14 mill that window. And he didn’t get involved... last day of the window and he sells for almost half the price.

    Cheers Donald marra

    Didn’t even have time to replace him.

    Can’t half tell anorl, dropped about 6 positions now.
