This is a save that runs alongside Dafuge’s Challenge and Neppo’s Youth Player Project threads.

This is an active save, so I shall continue to post updates when I have finished each season.

This game is being run on FM09 on patch 9.1.0, which was subsequently updated with 9.2.0 and 9.3.0 when they were released. No edits to the database have been made, but I have used a .ddt file to ensure that all clubs playable in Dafuge’s Challenge contain the players that the clubs have on their books in real life.

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

I'm just going to add a few points regarding the cheating accusations that have been made both in this thread and across the forums in general.

1. I know i've not cheated, so if you're looking for me to say that i've cheated, then you're not going to get it.
2. If you choose not to believe me, then it's fine by me, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and i respect that.
3. If you choose not to believe me, then there's no need to come into this thread and accuse me of cheating constantly.
4. If you repeatedly post in here saying that i've cheated, then i'm going to ask to have your posts removed as they're not needed when i've repeatedly expressed my thoughts on this topic several times in both this thread and across the forums.
5. Questions regarding the save are welcomed, i will happily answer them to the best of my ability. I'd rather your air you air your concerns and have them answered than let things come to a head in one angry, violent post. However, if this drifts into constant spam posts, i'll have the posts deleted as stated above.

Thanks for your time

FC United Update Season 2009/10

Media Prediction: 20th
Actual Position: 1st - Champions
FA Cup - 1st Round
Conference Cup - 2nd Round North
FA Trophy - 1st Round

Where do i start? A fantastic season for all involved with promotion at the first attempt and automatically as well. I also won Manager of the Year Hopes of the playoffs at best were beaten. I would have accepted beating the drop at the start, but my aim was to finish mid table. That was out of the window halfway through as i realised that we could gain automatic promotion at the first attempt. The only time we lost was to Boston United in the 8th game and from there we went on a 34 match unbeaten run which didn't end

Alex MacDonald (http://s577.photobucket.com/albums/ss213/hamilton162/?action=view&current=AlexMacDonaldStats-1.jpg) - He was an incredible loan signing, our top scorer with 20 in the BSN and 4 in the cups. I am trying to sign him permanantly in the summer

Transfers (http://s577.photobucket.com/albums/ss213/hamilton162/?action=view&current=Table-1.jpg) - Nicky Travis (http://s577.photobucket.com/albums/ss213/hamilton162/?action=view&current=NickyTravis-1.jpg), Ben Hinchcliffe (http://s577.photobucket.com/albums/ss213/hamilton162/?action=view&current=BenHinchliffe-1.jpg), Nathan D'Laryea (http://s577.photobucket.com/albums/ss213/hamilton162/?action=view&current=NathanDLaryea-1.jpg)and Robbie Rice (http://s577.photobucket.com/albums/ss213/hamilton162/?action=view&current=RobbieRice-1.jpg) are the standout free signings, Paul Taylor (http://s577.photobucket.com/albums/ss213/hamilton162/?action=view&current=PaulTaylor.jpg) and Nathan Jarman (http://s577.photobucket.com/albums/ss213/hamilton162/?action=view&current=NathanJarman.jpg) the players who i had to pay for.

Squad (http://s577.photobucket.com/albums/ss213/hamilton162/?action=view&current=Squad.jpg) - Over the summer, strength in depth needs to be assembled, especially if MacDonald doesn't sign for us. I'm in the market for another striker and a right and left winger

Table (http://s577.photobucket.com/albums/ss213/hamilton162/?action=view&current=Table-3.jpg) - Won the title by 18 points, could have been more if i had turned draws into wins in the final 5 games
Graph (http://s577.photobucket.com/albums/ss213/hamilton162/?action=view&current=Graph-1.jpg) - Once we hit the top for the second time, we never looked back

Finances (http://s577.photobucket.com/albums/ss213/hamilton162/?action=view&current=Finances-1.jpg) - Only in the red because i released Barry Hayles for £35,000 compensation as i was over wage budget, he was the highest earner by far and he wasn't even playing for the second half of the season

Best 11 (http://s577.photobucket.com/albums/ss213/hamilton162/?action=view&current=Best11.jpg) - As this is the first season playable in FM09 for FCUM, the Best Eleven Overall Screen contains exactly the same players as the Best 11 for this season

Aims for Next Year

1) Survive Relegation back to the BSN
2) Have a cup run
3) Improve finances
4) Get strength in depth in squad
5) Get another Striker - Hopefully Alex MacDonald

Best Player (http://s577.photobucket.com/albums/ss213/hamilton162/FC%20United/Season%202/?action=view&current=MichaelPotts.jpg) - Potts was superb all season long, grabbing 52 goals in all comps as we romped to the Blue Square Premier Title.

Season Review – FC United – Season 3 2011/12

Our first season in the football league turned out to be a massive success. I was expecting a relegation battle this season, but hoping for Mid-table. That was as good as I thought it would get.

How wrong I was. We never dropped into the bottom third of the table all season and we were in and out of the playoffs for most of the season. We had a chance of sneaking automatic promotion on the last day of the season, but sadly it wasn’t to be. Wycombe snuck into 3rd on goal difference that was 2 better than ours

As it was, we made it into the playoffs. I was excited and nervous at the same time as I haven’t been involved in the playoffs in FM for some time. A 6-1 aggregate win over Aldershot set us up perfectly for the final, but with top scorer Michael Potts and other influential players out injured, it wasn’t to be. We lost to Brentford in the playoff final 1-0. I wasn’t too disappointed, given that we had outplayed expectations all season.

On the other hand, our FA Cup run was a massive success. We got to the Semi-Finals before being knocked out by West Ham thanks to 2 late Dean Ashton goals. But along the way we beat Portsmouth 2-0 (http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/3759/pompey02fcunited.jpg), Arsenal 1-0 (http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/7863/arsenalfacupgame.jpg) and Everton 3-0 (http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/529/evertonfacupgame.jpg) all away from home. I doubt that we will match that achievement until if and when we get to the Premiership.

Best Player (http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/9571/michaelpotts.jpg) – Michael Potts was superb again, bagging 22 goals in the league and 25 altogether. But he was inconsistent this season, having 3 goal droughts, albeit none more than 400 mins.

Squad (http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/1765/squady.jpg)
Table (http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/9743/tablelpu.jpg)
Graph (http://img4.imageshack.us/img4/9836/graphz.jpg)
Finances (http://img18.imageshack.us/img18/1831/finances.jpg) – Boosted massively by our FA Cup run to the Semi-Finals

Aims for next Season

1) Sign more players of better quality. Hopefully I will get more than £100k than I got this year because of the huge increase in finances
2) Mount a serious title challenge
3) Win a trophy (The JPT or League 2 would do)
Get a new striker to partner Potts as the next highest total goals was 12 from Chris Gordon. Potts is on loan until Jan at the very least. But I may try and get Man Utd as a feeder club

FC United Season Review – Season 4 (2012-13) – League 2


Positions Graph (http://img222.imageshack.us/img222/5492/grapho.jpg) - League Table (http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/9648/tablerqm.jpg) – Well, what can I say? This season I expected to challenge for promotion, but the title was a distant dream. However, we ran away with the league, clinching promotion with 9 games left and the title a game later. A truly dominant season We also went on an amazing 40 match unbeaten run in the league that didn’t end!!!


FA Cup – Pleased that we reached the 5th Round for the second time in 2 seasons, but I felt we could and should have beaten QPR at home. But knocking out Liverpool in front of the Kop more than makes up for it

JPT – Nothing special here, reached the 3rd Round and lost to York as I rested players to concentrate on the League 2 promotion race

League Cup – Had a bye to the second round where we lost to . Again, I wanted to concentrate on the league, so players were rested.

Finances (http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/2411/financesx.jpg) – Dropped massively from last year, but the cup run only featured 1 match away against a Prem team. We also spent loads on transfers as well, including Michael Potts on a permanent deal for a record £1m. On the bright side, we announced a new sponsorship deal worth £700k per year, lasting for 2 years

Squad 1 (http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/8836/squad1f.jpg) – Squad 2 (http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/5582/squad2c.jpg) – A good squad that ripped League 2 to shreds. Good depth but all of the dead wood shall be cleared in the summer to make way for new signings and reduce the wage bill.

Alex Marrow (http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/8008/alexmarrow.jpg) – Quite simply brilliant, 18 goals from midfield in all comps, mostly long range screamers, capped the 23 year old’s best season yet. He was on loan, but his contract runs out very soon at Blackburn and I am hoping that he will sign for us

Michael Potts (http://img14.imageshack.us/img14/9571/michaelpotts.jpg) – Not as prolific as the past 2 seasons, but was injured for 2 and a half months total and 16 goals is a respectable tally considering his numerous goal droughts and injuries. He is really close to the record number of appearances for the club. He currently has 126 and the record stands at 129. He will break it this season, I am sure.

Steve Nicholson (http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/7749/stevenicholson.jpg) – Outstanding, with 35 assists in all comps, this guy is a real star of the future. A bargain buy from Rotherham in the summer for £350k. My best signing so far I reckon

Transfers (http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/262/transfersr.jpg) – A lot spent but some quality players gained. All of them worth the money, apart from Mel Morris who didn’t fit into my tactical systems in the end.

Team of the Year (http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/1976/league2teamoftheyear.jpg) – 2 of my players got into team of the year. Steve Nicholson wasn’t exactly a surprise, but Bogard was and the exclusion of Alex Marrow is very puzzling.

On a personal note, I won Manager of the Year (http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/5555/manageroftheyear.jpg) by a mile and I have been in charge for over 200 games. 229 to be precise.

Best 11 – Season (http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/6641/best11season.jpg)
Best 11 - Overall (http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/2999/best11overall.jpg)

Aims for Next Season

1)Mid Table Finish
2)Build up Finances Again
3)Win JPT if possible
4)Strengthen the squad, particularly up front, left wing, centre mid and central defence

Hamilton162’s Season Review – 2013/14 – FC United – League 1 Champions!!!

Well, what a breathtaking season My aims for the season were to stay up and get a mid-table finish, as I told the board. But my players and new signings had other ideas!

In the League, we were totally dominant (http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/6132/tablej.jpg) and were never out of the automatic promotion places, clinching our second successive league crown. We also went the entire season undefeated, thanks to a last minute Michael Potts penalty on the last day of the season and our unbeaten streak currently stands at a massive 86 league games (Including the season in League 2)

In the cups, we were alright. We reached the 4th Round of the FA Cup before going down 2-1 at home to EPL side Portsmouth, taking revenge for us dumping them out at the 6th Round stage 2 years back.

The League Cup was alright, albeit a 5-3 extra time loss against Port Vale was disappointing as we had more possession and chances than they did.

The JPT wasn’t important really as I had decided a few weeks into the season that the league would be out main focus. As a result, we got knocked out in the 2nd Round, due to me fielding a mixture of youth and reserve team players to keep them happy.

The Squad (http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/5027/squadh.jpg)


Goalkeepers – Ben Amos (http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/9362/benamos.jpg) was brilliant all the way through. My most expensive signing to date at £2.2m on deadline day in August from parent club Man Utd, he had a shaky start but was magnificent from about 10 games into the season. Ron-Robert Zieler (http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/8731/ronrobertzieler.jpg) got 4 games before Amos came in and is now unhappy and wants to leave. Rhys Evans (http://img11.imageshack.us/img11/8786/rhysevans.jpg) is leaving on a free in the summer as he has played 3 games in 2 seasons and is getting on a bit.

Defence – Nana Ofori-Twumasi (http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/5016/nanaoforitwumasi.jpg) and Lee Molyneux (http://img11.imageshack.us/img11/1759/leemolyneux.jpg) continued their partnership this season with some solid defending and brilliant support down the wings. In the centre, Jody Williams (http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/6172/jodywilliams.jpg) and Wes Morgan (http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/1267/wesmorgan.jpg) came in during the summer and formed an outstanding partnership that saw us concede only 33 goals during the whole campaign. Morgan may need replacing in the summer as he is only classed as a “Decent Championship DC”

Midfield - Alex Marrow (http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/8008/alexmarrow.jpg) had another superb season. 21 goals in all competitions, an average rating of 7.12 and 10 assists is a great season in anyone’s book and in any league. Miroslav Stoch (http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/1353/miroslavstoch.jpg) was brought in on a free in the summer and did and excellent job down the left flank. Steve Nicholson (http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/7749/stevenicholson.jpg) had an average year, but he is only 20 and has great potential according to my new Ass Man (http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/8797/michaelpennynewassman.jpg). Stephen Hay (http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/5020/stephenhay.jpg) did a good job in the centre of the park, creating chances, scoring a few goals and breaking up attacks. Lots of backup players are leaving in the summer to thin down my squad, reduce the wage bill and leave space for more players of a better standard to come in.

Strikers – Michael Potts (http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/9571/michaelpotts.jpg) was in sensational form as he bagged 30 goals in the league and thus the Top Goalscorer Award for League 1 (http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/3482/michaelpottstopgoalscor.jpg). Paul Barisic (http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/6266/paulbarisic.jpg) provided a useful 18 goals in the league and was an excellent target man for Potts to play off of. Peter Thompson (http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/2240/peterthompson.jpg) was good backup and scored 9 goals in the league this season, albeit he is now unhappy like most of my squad due to lack of first team football.

Finances (http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/5420/financesd.jpg) – If it wasn’t for generous FCUM chairman Andy Walsh pumping £5m into the club at the start of the season, we would be in the red. The wage bill was far too high and will be reduced when half of my squad leave in the summer and I sign some less expensive players to replace them

Best 11 This Season (http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/6365/best11oftheseason.jpg) – No real surprises there

Best 11 Overall (http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/6647/best11overallw.jpg) – Again, no real surprises.

Manager of the Year (http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/5555/manageroftheyear.jpg) – On a personal note, I ran away with Manager of the Year due to our incredible performance in the League

Team of the Year - League 1 (http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/5457/teamoftheyearamosmarrow.jpg) - No supprises as Potts and a couple of others get rewarded for excelent performances this campaign

Transfers (http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/8109/transfersx.jpg)





Aims for Next Season

Survive
Increase finances and make a profit
Get in better players on free transfers

The Promised Land






FC United – Season 2014/15 - Championship



Well, what can I say!? Another unbelievable season ended in drama and glory. Lets take a look back at FC United’s first season playing Championship football, looking at the highs and lows along the way.

League (http://img29.imageshack.us/img29/1995/cocacolachampionship.png) / Positions Graph: A season of consolidation was in order after 2 straight promotions and titles in Leagues 1 and 2 during the previous 2 seasons. The season started brightly with a good run, but tailed off slightly mid-season due to fatigue and a run of 6 matches without a win. Things soon got back on track and after a frantic and very exciting end to the regular season for everyone in and around the top 6, 3rd place was unexpectedly secured on the final day.

Going into the playoffs, I expected to get to the final. My expectations then would depend on who I would face in the Final. If it was Reading I were to face, I would be happy with another season in this league. If it was to be Watford, then I wanted and expected promotion having done the double over them earlier in the season

1st Leg (http://img268.imageshack.us/my.php?image=swanseavfcunitedx.png) – We played well at the Liberty Stadium until the 80th minute, when Stuart Smith misjudged a header and Swansea took the lead. Our loss was secured 5 mins later when Stuart Smith missed an interception and Swansea took full advantage

2nd Leg (http://img269.imageshack.us/my.php?image=fcunitedvswansea2t.png) – I believed that we had a chance to get through, as long as we grabbed an early goal. Bernard Brennan did just that and we were quickly 2-0 in front and level at 2-2 on aggregate. Then the nerves kicked in as Steve Nicholson missed an interception during a goalmouth scramble and Fryatt poked home from a yard. It was all or nothing, but then out of the blue, we scored again through Paul Barisic and I went mad, nearly smashing the PC Monitor in the process!!! Our place in the final was secured when Brennan headed in from a cross from Demenage, secured his hat-trick and our ticket to Wembley for the 3rd time this season!

Final (http://img29.imageshack.us/my.php?image=watfordvfcunited2d.png) – This was an extremely open game, with chances at either end but no clear cut ones. After 66 minutes of agony, who else but Bernard Brennan rocketed home a header to send the FC United Fans and Manager into ecstasy. It was a nervous final 5 minutes, with Watford pushing as hard as they could to snatch an equaliser. But we held on and secured our place in the Premiership for the first time in our history.

FA Cup

This season, I was in desperate need of a decent cup run to boost our finances. And what a run it was!!! I expected to get to the 5th Round, the 6th at the very best, but we managed to get to the Final for the first time in our history I didn’t expect to beat Arsenal as they are the Premier League Champions and have won the competition for the last 2 years. I was amazed that we managed to score, but we got beaten 4-1 (http://img268.imageshack.us/my.php?image=arsenalvfcunited.png) which was a fair reflection of the game.

Squad:

In goal was the reliable Ben Amos (http://img29.imageshack.us/my.php?image=1benamoso.png) who provided some important saves, but was extremely unpredictable at times. Providing cover for Amos was highly rated young startlet Paddy Pitcher (http://img29.imageshack.us/my.php?image=21paddypitcherk.png).

At the heart of the defence, Jody Williams (http://img269.imageshack.us/my.php?image=14jodywilliamsy.png) was a rock. Didn’t make any mistakes and his aerial dominance of every striker was superb. One for the future and still only 21. His partner kept changing, but I eventually settled on 19 year old Stuart Smith (http://img29.imageshack.us/my.php?image=18stuartsmithr.png) to partner Williams. At 19, I was not expecting spectacular performances, but he did a superb job. He was alternated with Wes Morgan (http://img269.imageshack.us/my.php?image=4wesmorgand.png), Loanee Shane Duffy (http://img268.imageshack.us/my.php?image=shaneduffystats.png) and Matthew Brown (http://img268.imageshack.us/my.php?image=5matthewbrownc.png). At left back, Lee Molyneux (http://img29.imageshack.us/my.php?image=3leemolyneuxs.png) continued to impress following his mid-season switch last term. He provided excellent defensive work and also set up a fair few goals with his corners and mazy runs down the left. He even scored direct from a corner in February!!!! Completing the back 4 at right back was the ever reliable Nana Ofori-Twumassi (http://img269.imageshack.us/my.php?image=2nanaoforitwumasiu.png). A now veteran at the club having been with us since the Non-League days, he may be leaving in the summer to leave room for Stuart McGoldrick (http://img269.imageshack.us/my.php?image=27stuartmcgoldricka.png) or a new signing to take his place. He provided great service this season as always and his work was invaluable.

Onto the middle of the park and the emerging star that is Steve Nicholson (http://img29.imageshack.us/my.php?image=6stevenicholsonf.png) had his best season yet. He provided 24 assists and 16 goals in an incredible season and there is still plenty more to come from him in the future. He is the future of this club. On the opposite flank, Miroslav Stoch (http://img269.imageshack.us/my.php?image=25miroslavstocht.png) continued to impress with his speed, crossing and ability with the ball at his feet. He was reduced to substitute appearances during the 2nd half of the season as young French winger Armand Demenage (http://img269.imageshack.us/my.php?image=7armanddemange2w.png) came in for a paltry fee of £475k. The 2 centre mids were constantly changing, but Sean Geddes (http://img268.imageshack.us/my.php?image=8seangeddesc.png) was a regular and provided some solid performances and a couple of stunning goals. Loanee Robert Boddy (http://img268.imageshack.us/my.php?image=17robertboddyn.png), Alex Marrow (http://img29.imageshack.us/my.php?image=12alexmarrowb.png) and Stephen Hay (http://img269.imageshack.us/my.php?image=19stephenhayl.png) were rotated in the other slot, with January signing Bandar Al-Suwaylem (http://img29.imageshack.us/my.php?image=26bandaralsuwaylem.png) slotting right into the role when needed. Another loanee, Liam Suckling (http://img268.imageshack.us/my.php?image=20liamsucklingj.png), provided cover for both the central and left sided roles.

Up front, Michael Potts (http://img29.imageshack.us/my.php?image=10michaelpottsu.png) had another sensational season. 23 league goals and 28 overall shows that despite the level of defences upping constantly, he is still a brilliant player. He is a club legend IMO and rightly so given his performances and loyalty to us since I first signed him on loan 5 years ago when we were still playing non-league footy.

However, a new signing stole his limelight this season. January Signing Bernard Brennan (http://img29.imageshack.us/my.php?image=22bernardbrennan3n.png) was simply unbelievable after signing for a bargain £28k on the first day of the new year. He managed to net 25 league goals in just 20 appearances and another 4 in 4 cup games. It seemed fitting that he was the man to send us into the promised land, it was just a shame that he didn’t share the limelight with Potts. He also managed to come 2nd in the Top Goalscorer (http://img132.imageshack.us/my.php?image=cocacolachampionshiptop.png) Award, despite played less than twice as many games as the winner did!!! He will be a real star in the future, goodness knows what he may do in the Premier League next year

Completely overshadowed by my first choices were the ageing Peter Thompson (http://img29.imageshack.us/my.php?image=9peterthompsonl.png) and young Aussie Paul Barisic (http://img269.imageshack.us/my.php?image=11paulbarisicb.png). Thompson had a great season and scored 19 goals in his best season yet for us, yet was only 3rd in our scoring charts for the season!! Barisic was providing cover after Brennan came in, but popped up with some vital goals, none more so than the one which sent us into the playoff final.

On a personal note, I came 2nd in the Manager of the Year Award (http://img268.imageshack.us/my.php?image=cocacolachampionshipman.png)



Aims for Next Season

Survive
Build up finances

FC United – Season 2015-16 – English Premier League



Well, what a year!!! A fantastic season with a magical ending. Let’s take a look back at FC United’s first season of playing in the top flight of English football, looking at their star players, failures and success stories along the way.



League (http://img190.imageshack.us/img190/5867/epltable.png) / Positions Graph (http://img197.imageshack.us/img197/2959/eplpositionsgraph.png): 7 years ago when I started out, if someone had told me that we would have been Premier League Champions within the first 7 years, I would have told them that there were bonkers!! How wrong I was! After a Tycoon Takeover by Ryan Preece in the summer, I wanted a safe mid table finish. However, it soon became clear after the first few games that we were serious contenders for the EPL Title. We were consistent throughout, and after going through a rough patch halfway through, we bucked up our ideas and went on a great run until the end of the season that saw us crowned champions with 3 games to spare in front of our own fans at Gigg Lane after beating Manchester United 3-1 (http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/4976/fcunitedvmanutdr.png). Bernard Brennan grabbed a brace to ensure that history was made and within 11 years of its formation, FC United were deservedly crowned champions of England for the first time.

FA Cup Final (http://img3.imageshack.us/img3/9896/facupfinal.jpg): After being deservedly beaten in last year’s final by a brilliant Arsenal side, I was determined to build a squad that was capable of dominating the competition this time round. After breezing through the early rounds, we had a tough Semi draw against a Spurs team full of young talent. A quite simply exquisite lob from Chinese superstar Lu Chao ensured that we would be back at Wembley for the final once more. And we dominated it, winning 3-1 against Aston Villa when we could and definitely should have scored at least 5. Bernard Brennan was the hero as his 2 goals ensured that a League and Cup Double (http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/8333/doingthedouble.jpg) was secured and that the only major competition that is missing from our trophy cabinet is the Champions League.

Finances (http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/892/finances.png): I wanted to improve these this season, and I did just that with Ryan Preece ensuring that the balance was always topped up after a spending spree. The EPL brought in £20.5m as prize money, the FA Cup brought in a lot as well. These should improve even more with Champions League footy coming to Gigg Lane next season

Squad (http://img190.imageshack.us/img190/7899/squad.png) and Transfers (http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/8302/transfers.png): There was plenty of chopping and changing this season as I needed a clear out following our unexpected promotion the year before. Thanks to my millions from Ryan Preece, I was able to spend, spend and spend some more, which ensured that whatever top-class talent I needed and wanted came to us, no matter what the transfer fee may have been!

In goal was Remy Riou (http://img3.imageshack.us/img3/3151/1rmyriou.png), who enjoyed a superb season between the sticks. 21 clean sheets and just 40 conceded in 44 games was an outstanding return from the Frenchman. Providing backup to him were youth prospects Paddy Pitcher (http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/6655/23paddypitcher.png) and Michael Short (http://img3.imageshack.us/img3/2923/13michaelshort.png).

In front of him in the defence was ever reliable Chinese defender Zhang Jian (http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/5241/24zhangjian.png). He was inconsistent at times, but recovered well to get a decent average rating for the season and contributed far more than his stats for the season show. Alexander Cuellar (http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/6816/alexandercullar.png) signed in January and felt instantly at home, be it in the right back or centre pack berth. He was an outstanding addition to the squad and may well lead the side in the future. A real talent that I have been tracking for some time, he has the potential to become a club legend. Ronald Christopher (http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/3134/3ronaldchristopher.png) signed in August and slotted into the left back slot with ease. After some intense training to re-position him, he became a natural RB as well and performed well there from January until the end of the season. Completing the back line was the amazing David Vrba (http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/4996/davidvrba.png). His runs down the wing were a constant threat to the opposition and did well when called upon defensively. Stuart Smith (http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/4546/5stuartsmith.png), Jody Williams (http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/3991/21jodywilliams.png) and Stuart McGoldrick (http://img3.imageshack.us/img3/9868/30stuartmcgoldrick.png) provided the cover for the ever-reliable back 4.

In the midfield, Ali Kvarnolf (http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/7742/6alikvarnlf.png) was the star. The Finnish playmaker was a key player in our title and FA Cup wins. He provided excellent service to the wingers and front men, whilst also bagging 13 long range screamers to top off an incredible first season with the club. Versatile playmaker and wonderkid John Pucket (http://img197.imageshack.us/img197/2676/27johnpuckett.png) also played a central role in our success this season. It is amazing to think that he only came through the academy at the start of the season What a future he has in front of him. He also won the Young Player of the Year Award (http://img197.imageshack.us/img197/255/pucketyoungplayerofthey.jpg), a deserved reward for an incredible debut season. Richard Gutierrez (http://img190.imageshack.us/img190/9995/12richardgutirrez.png) was a player that I had been tracking for some time. Eventually, he was mine after AZ accepted a £9.5m bid in July. Can play either in a central or wide left role and is a brilliant player all round. Completing the midfield quad was Armand Demenage (http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/5381/15armanddemange.png). A French playmaker signed last January for a bargain £475k, he provided pace and skill on the ball. A hard worker and a great prospect who is classed as a wonderkid like fellow winger John Puckett. Steve Nicholson (http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/139/7stevenicholson.png) provided backup for both wings and did an excellent job, whilst Sean Geddes (http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/973/14seangeddes.png) chipped in with some good performances from time to time when called upon. Italian youngster Denni Foti (http://img190.imageshack.us/img190/8421/28dennyfoti.png) was also a good acquisition and has great potential. Solid this season when he did appear.

Up front, Chinese superstar Lu Chao (http://img197.imageshack.us/img197/5710/11lchao.png) was an excellent signing. For £12m, he brought pace and power to the front line, whilst popping up with vital and exquisite goals as well as many assists. He was rotated with January signing Kevin Murray (http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/2263/25kevinmurray.png), who was also a bargain at £12m. Both of these were fighting it out for a place as there was another super striker that just couldn’t stop scoring...

Bernard “God” Brennan (http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/6572/9bernardbrennan.png) was amazing, unbelievable, superb, exquisite, awe inspiring... There are so many superlatives to describe him with, but none are worthy of the great man. He is far too good for this or indeed any league. A club legend (http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/4203/legendstatus.png), 41 goals overall, 33 in the league, a place in the EPL Team of the Year (http://img3.imageshack.us/img3/9854/teamoftheyear.jpg), the Player of the Year (http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/3044/brennanfootballerofthey.jpg), Top Goalscorer (http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/2518/brennantopscorer.jpg) and European Golden Boot says it all (http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/6639/brennaneuropeangoldenbo.jpg). A remarkable talent at 22 and still plenty of room for improvement according to my ass man. A club legend and rightly so, he is quite possibly the greatest player that my game shall ever see. He shall be forever remembered as the player that took us almost by himself to the crown of Champions of England in our first season in the top flight. There is only one thing left to say. Europe watch out, because Brennan is about


On a personal note, I was named Manager of the Year (http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/870/manageroftheyearj.jpg) and I am now officially a Club Legend (http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/4203/legendstatus.png)

Champions League Final 2017 - FC United Vs Lyon

Hello and welcome to the Gazprom-arena in St Petersburg, Russia for the Champions League Final of 2017. Neither FC United nor Lyon have ever reached the final of this great competition before in their respective histories. And a first time winner shall thus be crowned tonight in front of 90,000 fans.

FC United have had an incredible run through the draw, beating teams such as Barcelona in the Group stages, who were followed by Ajax, Liverpool and Manchester United as FCUM came charging through the bottom half of the draw to claim their place in tonight's final.

Lyon have also had an incredible run this year. Although placed in an easy group, ties against the likes of Bayern Munich and Real Madrid have had it difficult for the French side.

And so to the linups:

FC United: Riou; Cuellar, Vrba, Neumann, Zhang; Nicholson, Demanage, Kvarnolf, Joseph; Brennan, Thuller

Lyon: Lloris, Dogan, Bellaid, Faty; Pjanic, Robben, Poli, Toulalan, Kallstrom; Benzema, Tafer

FC United look the stronger team on paper, but the key in this match lies with the legendary Bernard Brennan. The 23 year old from Ireland is the top scorer in this competition and if the likes of Demanage and Fernando provide him with good service tonight, this could be over before it has even started. With 12 goals so far, he has been in lethal form. But can Lyon stop him in his tracks?

It's almost time for kick-off, so let's hand over to our commentary team, John Motson and David Platt for the Champions League Final of 2017. Over to you John...

1 min: GOOOOAAAAAALLLLLLLL!!!!!! FC United are ahead!!!! From the kick off, Toulalan passed back to Bellaid, but Bernard Brennan nipped in and buried the ball into the net!! FC United 1-0 Lyon.

4 mins: But that lead has lasted all of 3 minutes, Tafer volleying in from close range after FCUM failed to clear a corner. Game on!! FC United 1-1 Lyon

26 mins: GOOOOAAAAALLLLLL!!! It's Bernard Brennan again! The Irishman heading into the bottom corner from a Steve Nicholson corner to put the club from Gigg Lane back in front! Drama here at the Gazprom-arena!! FC United 2-1 Lyon

43 mins: GOOOOOAAAAAALLLLLL!!! Michael Thuller buries a chance to put FCUM 2 goals to the good. He latched onto a great ball from strike partner Brennan and smashed the ball past the helpless Lloris in the Lyon goal. Is that the goal that seals the Champions League for FC United? FC United 3-1 Lyon

FULL TIME: That's it!! FC United, founded in 2005, are champions of Europe for the first time. A stunning display of attacking football topped with a 3-1 win over Lyon has sealed it for them. Bernard Brennan takes home the match ball for his 2 goals and an assist in a brilliant display. Scenes of joy a**** the fans, players and the coaching staff.

Michael Plattini presents the disconsolate Lyon players with their medals. They look distraught, but unfortunately there could only be one winner tonight.

And now, the FC United players, having recieved their medals, step onto the podium for the presentation of the Champions League Trophy. And Captain Bernard Brennan and Manager Tom Beckford thrust the trophy skywards to set off the fireworks and the cheers of delight from the players, fans and all associated with the club.

And we can now speak to victorious manager Tom Beckford.

Clive: Tom, the greatest achievement ever for you and your side?
Tom: Indeed Clive, it is. We came in with a good team, high morale and in the end, our quality brought us through.
Clive: This must be an immensly emotional moment for you?
Tom: Yes, but for the players as well, especially Bernard (Brennan). He's been fantastic this season and deserves all the plaudits for what he has achieved on a personal scale and with the team. And he's done so with the burden of being captain of this magnificent club.
Clive: When you started out 8 years ago in the Blue Square North, did you ever think that this journey to the Champions League and Premier League Titles was a realistic goal?
Tom: Well, i knew it was going to be a huge challenge that's for sure. But i thought it would take much, much longer than it has done. Credit goes to every single player that has played for us since 2009, they've helped guide me and the club to the position that we find ourselves in tonight and should be proud to be a part of this club's glorious history.
Clive: Anything else to say Tom?
Tom: Nothing other than these 2 words which i've been longing to say since we started out in the Blue Square North all those years ago...


CHALLENGE COMPLETE :D

Champions in Waiting




FC United – Season 2016/17 – English Premier League




A magical season for the other red half of Manchester. FC United of Manchester, 12 years after their formation, simply picked up the rule book and ripped the rest of England, and indeed Europe and the World, to shreds. Let’s take a look back at this historic season in the history of FC United of Manchester.



League Table (http://img11.imageshack.us/img11/6396/premierleague.jpg) / Positions Graph (http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/9583/positionsgraph.jpg): Well, after so much anticipation and waiting, we were crowned champions of the Premier League last May in front of our expectant fans at a packed Gigg Lane. The challenge this year was to retain our title as champions of England. And we did so, losing just 5 games en route to a 2nd successive Premier League title. We were the most consistent team around and in the end, our quality and consistency saw us through and we wrapped up the title with 3 games left at the JJB Stadium after beating Wigan 3-0. Bernard Brennan grabbed the goal and 2 assists that ensured that the Premier League trophy was to remain in FC United hands for at least another season.

FA Cup: Not much to report on in this competition in truth. We won it last year and the board expected us to get to the 6th Round this time. But we were dumped out 2 rounds earlier than that by a rampant Arsenal team. But in truth, I didn’t mind as this was not our focus for the season and meant that we had to play less games and could concentrate on our real goal, the Champions League.

UEFA Champions League (http://img11.imageshack.us/img11/2283/championsleaguefinal.jpg): What a job we did in this competition. We had a tough group, but sailed through it with a magnificent 9-0 demolition of Barcelona at the Nou Camp. Ties against Ajax, Liverpool and Man Utd followed, but the opposition were dispatched with ease as we romped into our first Champions League Final. And what a final it was! Brennan scoring twice, thus breaking the record for most goals in a season, and providing an assist for Thuller who scored our third to secure the UEFA Champions League title in our first season in the competition.

To win the competition was my aim, but I thought that as being too far away from us this year. But Brennan and the others proved me wrong, as they so often have in my 8 seasons.

Finances: (http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/1328/financesu.jpg)These are in pretty good shape thanks to the £20m we receive from winning the Premier League and UEFA Champions League. A record amount was spent on new players this season in order to get us a squad of the highest quality. This was all possible thanks to our chairman Ryan Preece. It was also a year of record outgoings, with Kevin Murray going to Chelsea for £53m + 50% Sell on Clause + £5m~ for 40 league goals, which was a great deal. Preece helped to maintain the level of money in the bank to around £40-45m when we had made a loss in a month.

Transfers: (http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/33/transfersjkq.jpg) As I have already said, it was a very busy season in the transfer market. Several players of high quality came in to replace old players or those who simply weren’t cut out for the top flight. Thuller stands out as the best signing, he provided excellent finishing and was a good strike partner for Brennan. Fellow German Neumann was a great addition and a rock at the back.

Squad: (http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/880/squadtoo.jpg) I’m not planning a major spending spree this year as we already have a strong squad. I might bring in a goalie and a centre back to provide competition for Riou, Neumann and Jian but that’s probably it. I’m very happy with the strength in depth that we have and unless a player gets badly injured or wants a move/runs down their contract, which isn’t likely, then no-one else is going to join the elite list!

Squad Analysis:

In goal was the impeccable Remy Riou (http://img199.imageshack.us/img199/9634/remyriout.jpg). The Frenchman continued his outstanding form that he showed last season. At 29, he’s got a few more years left in him yet. That’s as long as Paddy Pitcher (http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/8659/paddypitcher.jpg) and/or Michael Short (http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/326/michaelshort.jpg)don’t overtake him in the pecking order. These 2 are great prospects for the future and will no doubt be fighting between each other for the England goalie jersey in a few years time. I’ll look to bring in a backup keeper so that they can go on loan to gain some vital experience next year.

A continual presence at right back this season was Alexander Cuellar (http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/2589/alexandercuellar.jpg). The man from Paraguay was in scintillating form this season. He even started to score in the last 10 or so games and I was actually worried that he would prevent Brennan from getting the record for most goals in a season. His stats have dropped considerably since last year, but that’s because he’s become 2 footed as I’ve been training him as a left back in case of emergency. Zhang Jian (http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/3681/zhangjian.jpg) was great alongside Cuellar again this season. He was dominant in the air, despite his height, great on the ground and never let his man get away from him. Robert Neumann (http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/5850/robertneumann.jpg) was a sensation when he arrived. He was utterly, utterly dominant in the air alongside Jian and never failed to disappoint. He’s a real rock at the back and was a bargain buy from Bayern Munich from just £9.5m. Completing the back quad was David Vrba (http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/1656/davidvrba.jpg) from the Czech Republic. The versatile left sided player was an integral part of our team as he provided defensive stability whilst also providing the opposing right back with some difficulties. He links up well with Demanage and has stated that he wants to stay at FCUM for as long as possible. That’ll be his entire career then! He had an excellent season, providing important assists and the odd stunning 30 yard volley/free kick.

On the wings, there was plenty of competition. Steve Nicholson (http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/3834/stevenicholsonf.jpg) came back into favour this season and did a sterling job on the right side of the midfield quad. He was blisteringly quick and his brilliant inwsinging corners provided many, many assists for Neumann, Brennan et all. Armand Demanage (http://img199.imageshack.us/img199/9523/armanddemanage.jpg) was even better on the other flank. Signed for under half a million a couple of years ago, he’s turned into a real superstar this year and provided countless assists with his pinpoint crossing from the left wing. Fernando (http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/9552/fernandorlc.jpg) and Flavio (http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/5907/flavioc.jpg) came in in January and were fantastic when they played. Rotated between all parts of the midfield was wonderkid and academy prospect John Puckett (http://img199.imageshack.us/img199/40/johnpuckett.jpg). He gained more England caps this year and won the Young Player of the Year Award for the 2nd year in succession. He also scored his first 2 England goals in an enthralling 4-3 win over Italy at Wembley in February.

In the centre of the park, Ali Kvarnlof (http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/2029/alikvarnlof.jpg) was sensational once more. Although he didn’t score as much as last year, he was a key link up player who took the ball from the back 4 and laid on plenty of chances that were greedily gobbled up by the strikers. Alongside him was American signing Alan Joseph (http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/7019/alanjoseph.jpg). At £35m, he was by no means cheap, but he is a brilliant player. Him and Kvarnlof are the best centre midfield pairing in the world, and if you were to watch some of our games, you would see why! Peter Hunt (http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/7320/peterhunt.jpg) came in for a nominal fee in January to provide cover for these 2 when they were injured or in need of a rest after a hectic few weeks. He did extraordinarily well, gelling straight away and keeping Joseph out of the side for a number of weeks!

Lu Chao (http://img199.imageshack.us/img199/720/luchao.jpg) again provided us with excellent attacking options in the left striker role. He doesn’t score as many as he should do, but that’s because he’s not a goal poacher like someone else is! He provides so much for the team, but lost his place in the side in January. Michael Thuller (http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/5812/michaelthuller.jpg) came in for £16m from Dortmund in January to replace the outgoing Kevin Murray and to provide us with more attacking options. He was brilliant, hitting the ground running and scoring a number of vital goals. At one point, I thought that it was his mission to try and stop a certain man breaking a certain record!

And now we come to the last, but certainly not least player in my squad. Bernard Brennan (http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/6082/bernardbrennan.jpg) is an absolute beast. Legendary, insane, superb, extraordinarily fantastic are many words that have been used to describe the man. But none do him and his achievements justice. He’s been showered with praise by me and the rest of the CSE Forum for his goalscoring feats. 54 goals in a single season is immense (http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/8888/brennan54goals.jpg). But he won the Footballer of the Year (http://img197.imageshack.us/img197/3044/brennanfootballerofthey.jpg), Top EPL Goalscorer (ttp://img11.imageshack.us/img11/3412/brennantopscorereplu.jpg), Striker of the Ye (http://img199.imageshack.us/img199/566/europeanstrikeroftheyea.jpg)ar, came 2nd in the (http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/1142/europeanplayeroftheyear.jpg)Players Player of the Year (http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/1142/europeanplayeroftheyear.jpg) , Champions League Top Scorer (http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/8281/clgoldenboot.jpg) and Champions League Best Player (http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/734/clbestplayer.jpg)to boot He also claimed places in the EPL Team of the Year (http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/2561/eplteamoftheyear.jpg)and the Champions League Dream Team (http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/9715/cldreamteam.jpg). He is a god, and will never leave FC United. He’s just 23 and has achieved all of this whilst being captain of the best side in England, Europe and, shortly, the World. He is a club legend and rightly so. The only thing left to happen to him is to get a stadium named after him! Bernard Brennan, the greatest this world has ever seen (In my save) we salute you!

On a personal note, I was named EPL Manager of the Year (http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/5555/manageroftheyear.jpg) for the 2nd time in a row after guiding us to the EPL and UEFA Champions League crowns. I was also announced as the Best Australian Manager of All Time (http://img11.imageshack.us/img11/5460/beckfordgreatestaussiem.jpg)

Career Overview


And I’ll leave you with a few quotes from the great men that have made this incredible story possible:

Tom Beckford (Manager/ME!): It’s been a wonderful journey that borders on magical and impossible. Everyone has been fantastic. All of the staff, players and fans ever since I began here 8 years ago. It’s been a fantastic season and we’re already preparing to do even better next year”

Michael Potts: I can’t describe my emotions right now. It is a staggering achievement to win the Premier League title just 8 years after starting out in the Blue Square North. Tom (Beckford, Manager) deserves all the credit and plaudits that he has and shall receive for this amazing rise up the leagues. I’ve been part of this squad longer than anyone else and words cannot describe how I feel to have been part of a team who I’ve won so many promotions with. To still be part of this team years on from when I first joined on loan, I feel very privileged and winning the Champions League tonight has just topped it all off perfectly. We’ll only get better from here and I’m proud of what I and everyone else have achieved in the last few years. It’s been brilliant.

Bernard Brennan: It’s been an unbelievable night. To win the Champions League and Premier League is beyond mine and everyone’s wildest dreams. The fans, manager, staff and coaches have been brilliant. It’s been fantastic to be part of such a brilliant team that has been assembled by the greatest manager in the game today. It was great to achieve some amazing things on a personal level this year, but everyone should take credit for the amazing transformation that has taken place at this club over the past 8 years. Roll on next year!

Thanks Raware :thup: Youth Player current report will be posted below this :) I said at last becuase it took me 5 months to do so as i have periods where i cannot play FM at all and i am generally a very slow player.

You like the quotes at the end of that last season report?

Ah, gotcha. I thought you meant it as if 8 years was too long ;)

Yeah, the quotes were good. Made me chuckle. I could actually picture Bernard Brennan saying it to the reporter!

Bernard Brennan - Great player - Shocking name! ;)

I tried to make them sound as realistic as possible. I'm good at coming up with that sort of thing. The response i got from everyone in the Dafuge's Challenge thread was amazing, never thought i'd get anywhere near that amoundt of support etc :D

Brennan - World's Best Ever Player - Great Name - Irish - Forum Legend (CSE in Particular) :D

even though what you've done is obviously a fantastic achievement, imo you've not experienced it in its true self. In the small club to big club challenges I pride myself on small improvements each season, improving here and there, but ultimately staying loyal to players that are good enough to play for the club still, and bringing in good youth players. Might just be me though.

It looks easy winning the league and champions league etc, with the team that i have. But it really isn't easy. Arsenal in particular are very strong, as are Liverpool and Spurs.

You did far better than me. It took me about 8 years just to get into the Football League with FCUM.


Great achievement:thup:

Thanks to both of you :thup: Brennan is a monster! I'm 22 games into the next season and he's on target to break his record of 54 goals in a season! He could score around 700 in his career at this rate and he's only going to get better :eek: I wouldn't be supprised if he could hit 60 goals this season or more if he keeps playing like he is at the moment and he stays injury free!

I was a bit faster but nothing like this. It took me 13 years to reach the Premier League and six of them were spent in the Championship.

­­­FC United – Season 2017/18 – English Premier League



Well, what can we say. FC United fans thought last year was good, but this year has been even better. Let’s take a look back at the year when FC United tried to conquer every competition in a single season.


League Table (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Competitions/EPLTable.jpg) / Positions Graph (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Competitions/LeaguePositionsGraph.jpg): A breathtaking season to say the least. We dropped just 2 points en route to our 3rd successive Premier League Title. And once we hit the top, we didn’t look down, claiming the title with 7 games left after a 2-0 win over Man City. Goals from Bernard Brennan and Armand Demanage sealed a glorious win against our closest rivals to ensure that we were again crowned champions of England.

FA Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Competitions/FACupFinal.jpg): This year, we wanted to win everything. And the draw made life as tough as possible as we faced Premier League opposition in every round. And we sealed our 2nd cup triumph in 3 years at Wembley in front of 90,000 supporters to keep our unbeaten record intact with a 5-4 penalty shootout win over Man Utd after a 2-2 draw.

League Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Competitions/LeagueCupFinal.jpg): Again, the draw was far from an easy route through. Ties against the likes of Liverpool and Man City were tough going, but we made it into the Final and trounced Arsenal 4-0 to win this competition for the first time in our history.

Community Shield (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Competitions/CommunityShield.jpg): We faced Man City in this, and a comfortable win saw us pick up the trophy for the 2nd year in a row.

Club World Championship (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Competitions/WorldClubChampionshipFinal.jpg): This was just a demolition job. After a 6-0 win in the Semi’s, we thrashed River 7-0 with Marc scoring 4 to ensure that we were crowned CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD!!!

European Super Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Competitions/EuroSuperCup.jpg): We faced Man City for the umpteenth time this season and duly despatched them with a 4-0 romp to yet another title to help us towards an almost impossible 7 trophies!

Champions League (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Competitions/CLFinal.jpg): Now this was a toughie. We faced Valencia, Basel and Juventus in the “Group of Death” of this years competition. Supprisingly, we stormed through the tougher ties, drawing against Basel with the youngsters given a run-out. Bayern Munich faced us in the 1st Knockout Round. We drew 1-1 in Germany followed by a dominant 3-1 after extra time win in Bury to set up a meeting with Spanish giants Real Madrid. The 1st leg was my 500th game in charge of FCUM and proved to be a cracker. A dominant 6-0 win was followed days later by a 2-2 draw that sent us into the Semi Final, where we would meet the team we beat 3-1 in last year’s CL Final, Lyon. We drew 2-2 at OL Land (Yes, that’s the name of their new stadium!) thanks to two Brennan goals. In the return leg, we won 3-0 at Gigg Lane to send us into our 2nd consecutive Champions League Final, where we would play Barcelona. And thanks to a brace from Puckett and another from Lu Chao, we sealed our 7th trophy of an incredible, unbeaten season! :D

Finances: (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/Finances.jpg) Much improved thanks to competition prize money, chairman investments and huge amounts coming in from sell-on clauses. A new stadium can’t be too far off…

Transfers: (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/Transfers-1.jpg) Very little activity this year. Murray and Foster have been superb and I got rid of some dead wood. There’s not going to be any major deals for a while as the squad I have isn’t even at it’s peak!


Squad (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/Squad.jpg) Analysis:

In goal, new signing Andy Murray (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/AndyMurray.jpg) was impeccable. He has the greatest defence in the world in front of him, but still needed to be on his toes. At just £6.25m, he looks like a bargain. Providing cover were Remy Riou (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/RemyRiou.jpg) and Michael Short (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/MichaelShort.jpg) as Paddy Pitcher (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/PaddyPitcher.jpg) was sent out on loan to Sheffield United to gain some experience and get regular games to aid his development. When Short and Pitcher reach a good enough standard, Riou is going to be sold as 4 keepers is way too many.

Alexander Cuellar (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/AlexanderCuellar.jpg) was brilliant again this season. He didn’t score as many free-kicks this season as he did last year, but he had a solid season and contributed in a defensive role more than in previous years. David Vrba (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/DavidVrba.jpg) was brilliant. His tireless work down the left side of the pitch was a great asset to our team. His pinpoint crosses provided perfect goalscoring opportunities, as did his his amazing inswinging corners. Robert Neumann (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/RobertNeumann.jpg) was utterly dominant in the air. The 29 year old German was a key figure at the heart of our defence and was very consistent. Steve Foster (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/SteveFoster.jpg), Zhang Jian (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/ZhangJian-1.jpg) and Jody Williams (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/JodyWilliams.jpg) were partners for Neumann at the centre of the back 4 and all did well when called upon.Foster looks like a real star in the making. Ronald Christopher (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/RonaldChristopher.jpg) provided the cover for the full back spots and did well when called upon. Cuellar won the Defender of the Year Award (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Awards/DefenderoftheYear.jpg), whilst Vrba came 2nd.

On the right wing, John Puckett (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/JohnPuckett.jpg) was simply magnificent. He contributed 24 assists and 12 goals at an average rating of nearly 7.50 a game and once again became first choice in his position. Armand Demanage (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/ArmandDemanage.jpg) was even more impressive on the opposite flank. With his great skill, running and control of the ball, he bamboozled the opposition back lines and contributed countless assists. Ali Kvarnlof (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/AliKvarnlof.jpg) was as impressive as ever. The Finish international was the engine of our midfield, spraying pinpoint passes all over the park whilst also netting the odd long range rocket that he is associated with. He also came 2nd in European Midfielder of the Year (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Awards/MidfielderoftheYear-AK2.jpg) and was named Club World Championship Best Player (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Awards/ClubWorldChampionshipBestPlayers.jpg). Alan Joseph (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/AlanJoseph.jpg) and Peter Hunt (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/PeterHunt.jpg) were rotated in the other centre midfield position, with Joseph usually getting the nod ahead of his friend Hunt, both of whom enjoyed decent seasons. Flavio got the odd game, but became increasingly unsettled and left in January to go to Chelsea for £37m + 50% sell on clause. Fernando (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/Fernando.jpg) has also been in good form this season. Him and Steve Nicholson (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/SteveNicholson-1.jpg) have provided excellent backup for the whole of the midfield quad.

Many strikers were used this season. Michael Thuller (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/MichaelThuller.jpg) was mainly used as a substitute, but did start on a fair few occasions and was always consistant. He possesses a great right foot and scored vital goals at important moments in this campaign. Club Legend Michael Potts (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/MichaelPotts.jpg) was given a few games and did well, netting a hat-trick against Aston Villa when the international bug came around again in April. Amazingly, he’s still happy at the club despite playing very few games for us! Lu Chao (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/LuChao.jpg) has been disappointing this season. After being dropped early on, he became unhappy and never regained his place in the side. He may be shipped out in the summer if a good enough offer comes along.

And now we come to the starting two. Marc Beckford (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/MarcBeckford.jpg), my son, was superb. I set him a target of 15 goals this year, which he completely smashed. Hitting 29 goals in his first season as a regular and his second overall, he’s really improved this year. He’s scored vital winners against the likes of Juventus & Arsenal, whilst also netting 3 hat-tricks, including a superb quadruple in the Final of the World Club Championship against River Plate. He’s going to be a real star of the future.

And finally, we come to a legend. Bernard Brennan (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Squad%20and%20Players/BernardBrennan.jpg) was even more outstanding than usual this season, netting an incredible 75 times in just 66 games. With 25 Man of the Match Awards, 23 assists and a bucketload of awards, he has his best season to date. Those awards include: European Striker of the Year (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Awards/StrikeroftheYear.jpg), European Golden Boot (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Awards/EuropeanGoldenBoot.jpg), EPL Top Scorer (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Awards/EPLTopScorer.jpg), Champions League Golden Boot (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Awards/CLGoldenBoot.jpg), 3rd in the World Player of the Year (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Awards/FootballeroftheYear-BB3rd.jpg), Champions League Best Player (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Awards/CLBestPlayer.jpg), European Footballer of the Year (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Awards/EuroFootballeroftheYear.jpg), English Footballer of the Year (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Awards/EnglishFootballeroftheYear.jpg), 3rd in CL Best Goal (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Awards/CLBestGoal-BB3rd.jpg) AND A place in World Team of the Year (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Awards/WorldTeamoftheYear.jpg), Champions League Dream Team (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Awards/CLDreamTeam.jpg)andPlayers Team of the Year (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Awards/PlayersTeamoftheYear.jpg)!

I’m just left wondering how much more can come from this goalscoring beast of a striker. Any guesses as to how many he’ll score next year?

Again, I was named EPL Manager of the Year (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Awards/ManageroftheYear.jpg). I also got introduced into the England Hall of Fame (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/End%20of%20Season%20Review/Awards/EnglishHallofFame.jpg). I also got offered the England Job (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/Special%20Moments/England.jpg), which I took. I've thus got the World Cup this summer, another chance to add to my growing trohpy cabinet!

Finally, one of my aims from last season was to get a new stadium. Well, we got it this year (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/Special%20Moments/NewStadium.jpg). It's huge capacity of 82,951 with undersoil heating and a retractable roof will cost £294m to build and is named after me!!

England – World Cup – 2018

This was my first tournament as England boss after the previous one decided to take advantage of a big job offer from Valencia in Spain. We were expected to get to the quarter final stage, but I reckoned that we could at least get to the semi’s.

England Vs Uruguay (Group E): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/England/World%20Cup%202018/Matches/EnglandVsUruguayGroupGame1.jpg)

We played very well against a side whom we had beaten 4-0 at Wembley in a friendly game a few weeks earlier. A perfect start, but we should have scored more.

Holland Vs England (Group E): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/England/World%20Cup%202018/Matches/HollandVsEnglandGroupGame2.jpg)

I had marked this game as a group decider and we played really well. 3-1 was a fair scoreline and we proved that we can compete against the best

England Vs Iran (Group E): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/England/World%20Cup%202018/Matches/EnglandVsIranGroupGame3.jpg)

I rested several key players for this match as we were virtually through. We didn’t play very well and should have scored 1 or 2 more, but a win is a win.

England Vs Switzerland (2nd Round): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/England/World%20Cup%202018/Matches/EnglandVsSwitzerlandRound2.jpg)

This wasn’t going to be an easy match. The Swiss are ranked lower than us, but have some quality players. And we didn’t deserve to win, but the impressive Vaughn grabbed us a winner deep into stoppage time.

Australia Vs England (Quarter Final): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/England/World%20Cup%202018/Matches/EnglandVsAustraliaQuarterFinal.jpg)

A very scrappy game that neither side should have won. But a piece of brilliance from the standout Walcott saw us into the semi’s.

Czech Republic Vs England (Semi Final): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/England/World%20Cup%202018/Matches/CzechRepublicVsEnglandSemiFinal.jpg)

We were dominant from the word go and created numerous first half chances, but only scored right on the stroke of half time. After the break, they came at us but we repelled them and we managed to snatch another late one on the break to send us into the final.

Germany Vs England (World Cup Final): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/England/World%20Cup%202018/Matches/GermanyVsEnglandWorldCupFinal2018.jpg)

This was the first World Cup Final for England since 1966 and we were determined not to let our record against Germany hinder us, with 2 losses out of 2 in competitive matches since 2010. The game started very slowly for once, with both teams cancelling each other out. But on the stroke of the break, Rooney headed home from a Walcott corner. Germany came hard at us after the interval and were rewarded when Schuster tapped home after a good move. But with less than 20 minutes remaining, teenage wonderkid John Puckett sent a bullet header into the net from an Ashley Young corner to give England only their second ever World Cup Title :D

FC United of Manchester - Barclays Premier League - 2027/28

With the new stadium announced (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%209/Special%20Moments/NewStadium.jpg), this was going to be our final season in the 15400 seater Gigg Lane that has been our home for the past 10 years.

League Table (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/EPLTable.jpg)
League Positions Graph (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/EPLPositionsGraph.jpg)

We started well, rocketing to the top of the league in no time. However, when we jetted off to take part in the Club World Championship, our form dipped, allowing Man City the chance to capitalise, which they did. But from there on, we were invincible, not losing a game and drawing just 2 from January to May, when we claimed our 4th straight Premier League Crown.

Community Shield (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/CommunityShield.jpg) – I used this as a sort of pre-season warm-up and gave the youngsters a chance. Luckily Kvarnlof stepped up at the crucial moment to give us a chance of victory, which we grabbed with both hands.

UEFA Super Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/EuroSuperCup.jpg) – A dominant display from start to finish in Monaco against Werder Bremen. Vrba set up 2 and scored a magnificent goal that ensured that we won this competition for the 3rd successive year

Club World Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/ClubWorldChampionshipFinal.jpg) – This is just a chance to give some youngsters and stalwarts a few matches. Shandong and New York were duly dispatched with a minimum of fuss.

Carling Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/LeagueCupFinal.jpg) – Another great run through the competition this year, but a one sided final which we deserved to lose. As we had a crunch EPL game against Man City 3 days later, I rested key players and this was the result.

FA Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/FACupFinal.jpg) – A great run through the draw and we won this with a minimum of fuss against an off-colour Arsenal side who I thought would provide much sterner opposition than they actually did at Wembley.

UEFA Champions League (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/CLFinal.jpg) – We didn’t perform that well in the group stages (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/CLGroupStages.jpg%5d), but after that, we hit top form as Marseille, Man City, Arsenal and Bayern were destroyed en route to our 3rd consecutive Champions League Crown.

Transfers (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/Transfers.jpg) – I said that no transfers would happen unless I found a great player, and this happened. Sam Carr came in in January and replaced Alan Joseph in the centre of midfield. Nothing much else to report here

Finances (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/Finances.jpg) – Very strong. I trimmed down the wage bill this year and it’s helped us to make a huge profit. The new stadium should bring in much more revenue when we move into in a couple of weeks’ time.

Squad (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/SquadOverview.jpg) – A very strong squad that I feel is the best side in the world by a distance. Nicholson and Williams are leaving in the summer for a combined fee of nearly £15m, all of which is profit. I might bring in another backup winger who has plenty of room to develop, but that’ll probably be it. Lu Chao might be sold, he hasn’t impressed since Thuller and Beckford have taken his place in the side and on the bench 2 years ago.

Squad (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/SquadOverview.jpg) Profiles:

Andy Murray (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/AndyMurray.jpg) – A great keeper with his best years in front of him
Paddy Pitcher (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/PaddyPitcher.jpg) – He’ll be battling Murray and Riou for the Number 1 shirt next year
Remy Riou (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/RemyRiou.jpg) – He’s got 1 more season with us before I’m going to look to offload him
Michael Short (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/MichaelShort.jpg) – He’s got some serious improving to do if he wants to fulfil his huge potential and challenge for the goalkeepers jersey in future

Alexander Cuellar (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/AlexanderCuellar.jpg) – Fantastic as always
Steve Foster (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/SteveFoster.jpg) – A decent season from him, still improving and still only 20
Robert Neumann (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/RobertNeumann.jpg) – The rock at the heart of our defence. Simply brilliant
Zhang Jian (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/ZhangJian.jpg) – A good player, but needs to up his game slightly if he wants to make the other centre back berth his own
Jody Williams (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/JodyWilliams.jpg) – Inconsistent backup and is leaving for Villa in the summer.
David Vrba (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/DavidVrba.jpg) – Just sensational at left back, providing so much attacking threat and defensive stability
Ronald Christopher (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/RonaldChristopher.jpg) – Might be moved on if he doesn’t step up his game
Jordan Stead (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/JordanStead.jpg) – A real prospect. Could be a future replacement for Neumann, Cuellar or Vrba. Had a good 1st season at the club

John Puckett (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/JohnPuckett.jpg) – What a player. Another great season and as consistent as ever. The best in the world in my opinion and still only 19. A fantastic player
Fernando (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/Fernando.jpg) – The Brazilian provides so much attacking flair and skill when he plays. A great player
Stuart McGoldrick (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/StuartMcGoldrick.jpg) – The youth prospect done good. He’s been fantastic this season, shame that he missed the first half of it due to injury.
Ali Kvarnlof (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/AliKvarnlof.jpg) – The heart of our team. A fantastic player, probably the best midfielder in the world. A great passer with great vision
Sam Carr (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/SamCarr.jpg) – The other, new half of the deadly centre midfield duo.A great find and a great, great player. Could be better than Kvarnlof in the coming years.
Peter Hunt (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/PeterHunt.jpg) – A solid player. Not spectacular, but carries out his jobs well and often goes un-noticed and un-credited for his consistency.
Ryan Ford (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/RyanFord.jpg) – A great prospect, will challenge for the centre midfield spots in a few years, no question. Huge talent that we’ve got on our hands here.
Steve Nicholson (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/SteveNicholson.jpg) – He’s lost his magic touch and is leaving for Spurs in the summer. It sort of feels like the end of an era because he’s been such a key player for us for such a long time.
Armand Demanage (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/ArmandDemanage.jpg) – The best left midfielder in the world by some distance. Has great vision and the ability to go past his man with ease.

Lu Chao (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/LuChao.jpg) – A good, solid player but needs to step up his game if he’s to stay beyond next season
Michael Potts (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/MichaelPotts.jpg) – Club legend, given a few games. Would have featured more had it not been for a few relatively long periods out due to injury.
Michael Thuller (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/MichaelThuller.jpg) – A fantastic player who gives so much for the team, he’s really started to fire them in this year
Marc Beckford (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/MarcBeckford.jpg) – Another fantastic season for the teenager and my son, albeit slightly hindered with injury in the winter months.
Bernard “The Man” Brennan (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2010/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/BernardTheManBrennan.jpg) – Insane as always, over 50 in a season for the 3rd year in a row. At 25, he’s going to be reaching his peak fairly soon and is rated as the only 7* striker in the game

Notes: Could be a good player for EPL sides in all 9 positions, probably going to feature a lot if he develops due to his incredible versatility! I've never seen a more versatile player!

Just looking at your player Puckett. From the 1st of July to the 1st of August (13 months) he gained 7 in nearly all his attributes AND got capped twice for England...

Something seems fishy there to me. I have NEVER had a player undergo THAT much CA growth in one season!

it's certainly pretty phenomenal growth, it could be down to the amount of first team action he got, although Beckford's stats didn't improve that dramatically in his first 12 months at the club. I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation though, I have no reason to doubt that Hamilton would cheat nor do I believe he has.

Still a superb career Tom, keep it going! Any idea as to how long you want to continue it for? I assume until your son retires?!

PS: This post has been edited out to remove something that wasn't needed. Funbags, I suggest you do the same.

I have no reason to believe he has cheated, I have always been on Tom's side when Funbags has had a go at him. But something bugged me the other day and seemed strange. When he originally posted his international record of 'Highest International Win: England 10 v 0 Malta' (think it was that anyway) he posted a screenshot that visibly showed FMRTE (Football Manager Real Time Editor) open. A new image has now been put in place that is the same image, but has the bottom cropped out where the programs that are running are shown. This seemed very strange and it clearly shows that his post was edited after the time that it was posted. I'm sure there is a reasonable excuse but it is strange as to why this has happened. I will still be on his side until this is cleared up but found it very strange at the time! :thup:

Tom, this post is not intended to be malicious or anything like that and I will duly delete this from the thread once it has been acknowledged as it is nothing to do with the actual thread.

No problem with that Jack, i shall explain all.

I had opened an old document in paint to take a look at something and forgot to make a new document before pasting in the image of the result. As the image was smaller, the taskbar and programs running were shown from the screenshot i was viewing as the new screenshot did not completely cover the old one.

The reason i had FMRTE open in the previous screenshot was because i was using it to alter some player attributes for my sign-up, which is now dead and FMRTE is no longer on my computer.

Once i realised that this was the case, i corrected the image to make sure that FMRTE was not showing to try and avoid any accusations of cheating.

If you have any more questions, then don't hesitate to ask.

Tom

Yeah, probably. Might not buy FM10 until i finish his career!

My aim is to get Brennan to 1,000 career FCUM and Ireland goals, which will be tight as to whether he actuallt gets it. He's on fire this year, he'll break his record of 75 goals in a season no problem at this rate, presuming he doesn't get injured :eek: :cool:

But as said by a few if you feel he has cheated then you don't have to support the thread by posting ect.

But why would he post it if he cheated. Would be a bit stupid :)

Anynews on next update hamilton?

Sorry, i've been away for 10 days and i've literally just got back from France!

1. Only 1 taskbar because i have some shortcuts enabled on the PC that i play on so i can take screenshots of just the active window.

2. If someone thinks i'm cheating, fine by me. Everyone has a right to an opionion. However, please leave the accusations of cheating out and don't post in here about it.

3. Precisely my point. If i had cheated, what would have been the point in posting this career?

That's the last word on the subject, i'll be asking for any posts containing cheating allegations in this thread to be deleted.

As for the update, should come in a few days time once i've recovered from severe sleep-depreviation and play through the last month or so of the season :)

FC United of Manchester - Barclays Premier League - 2019/20

A slightly disappointing season for FC United this year by their own magnificent standards, let’s take a look back at it.

League Table (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/EPLTable.jpg)
League Positions Graph (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/EPLPositionsGraph.jpg)

We were dominant this season, scoring bucketloads of goals and not giving up top spot once after we had claimed it after 4 games, even when Man City had played 5 more games than us!

Community Shield (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/CommunityShield.jpg) – Used as a pre-season warm-up again and we won comfortably.

UEFA Super Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/EuropeanSuperCup.jpg) – I was annoyed with this result and the performance. We were the worse team throughout and were lucky to take the game into extra time. The fact that their winner was offside just made me even more cross.

Club World Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/CWC.jpg) – Nothing special here, 5-0 and 4-0 wins in the semi final and final respectively in a competition which was used to give the youth a chance and build up morale and form of key players.

Carling Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/LeagueCup.jpg) – We never get easy cup draws and did well to get to the stage we did. However, resting a few key players produced this result, but I was heartened by the performance of the very young side that I put out.

FA Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/FACup.jpg) – A huge disappointment. I expected to win this, but we played poorly. McGoldrick’s rocket had me delighted, but their winner was a real sucker punch.

UEFA Champions League (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/ChampionsLeague.jpg) – This is getting a bit routine now. A much better group stage for us this year, 5 wins out of 6 and conceding just 4 goals. Lokomotiv Moscow, Arsenal, Ajax and Man City were beaten en route to our 4th consecutive CL title.

Transfers (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Other%20Screenshots/Transfers.jpg) – Just the one move of significance to report on. Max Morrison came in for a £30m fee, but didn’t play as he was injured for the majority of the season once he joined us and he was also ineligible as we were his 3rd club this season.

Finances (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Other%20Screenshots/Finances.jpg) – The stadium helped us to make a huge profit this season as we were selling out for most games. We topped the £500m barrier after receiving the season’s prize money.

Squad (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Other%20Screenshots/Squad.jpg) – An outstanding squad with world class players in every position. My aim is to try and get make many youth products as possible regular first team players.

Squad Profiles:

Andy Murray (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/AndyMurray.jpg) – Lost his place to Pitcher at the start and didn’t regain it.
Paddy Pitcher (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/PaddyPitcher.jpg) – A fantastic first season as our first choice keeper, still has his best years ahead of him.
Remy Riou (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/RemyRiou.jpg) – He got nowhere near the first team this season due to Pitcher’s fantastic form. May be sold next year.
Michael Short (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/MichaelShort.jpg) – Needs to improve drastically if he’s to make the grade at this level. Went on loan to Carlisle and didn’t make an impression.

Alexander Cuellar (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/AlexanderCuellar.jpg) – Another marvellous season from the former captain in the right back position.
Steve Foster (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/SteveFoster.jpg) – Good season this year, developing into a class partner for Neumann
Robert Neumann (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/RobertNeumann.jpg) – The rock at the back delivered again this season, but is now 30 and may need replacing in a few years.
Zhang Jian (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/ZhangJian.jpg) – Needs to up his game in order to get ahead of Neumann and Foster in the pecking order.
David Vrba (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/DavidVrba.jpg) – Captain Fantastic again this year, what a player!
Ronald Christopher (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/RonaldChristopher.jpg) – He’ll leave soon, nowhere near the required standard to play for us. With Simmonds and Stead coming through and already ahead of him in the pecking order, I’d be surprised if I had to play him at all next term.
Jordan Stead (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/JordanStead.jpg) – Another decent season from the youth prospect that I’m grooming to replace either Vrba or Neumann in the back 4.
Michael Simmonds (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/MichaelSimmonds.jpg) – A very versatile player who was backup for Cuellar and on the bench for most matches this year. He’s got a lot of room to improve and is the player that will eventually replace Cuellar.

John Puckett (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/JohnPuckett.jpg) – World Class as always. Provides so much flair and skill when he plays. The best right winger in the world
Fernando (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/Fernando.jpg) – Good when called upon. May find it harder to get into the first team next season with Morrison back from injury and available to play.
Stuart McGoldrick (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/StuartMcGoldrick.jpg) – Developing nicely into a quality right back for England and winger for FC United.
Ali Kvarnlof (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/AliKvarnlof.jpg) – The best MC in the world produced the goods again this season, superb stuff.
Sam Carr (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/SamCarr.jpg) – Showed his class this year, a top quality MC to partner Kvarnlof.
Peter Hunt (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/PeterHunt.jpg) – Did a decent job although has slipped to 4th in the pecking order for the MC position.
Ryan Ford (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/RyanFord.jpg) – Did very well this year despite missing much of it with a torn hamstring. Is now 3rd choice MC at the club and rightly so. Is described as a Wonderkid.
Armand Demanage (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/ArmandDemanage.jpg) – The fantastic French winger just stepped up another level this year, amazing player and still very young.
Max Morrison (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/MaxMorrison.jpg) – Injured and ineligible this year, but could cause havoc next year and will challenge Demanage for the left wing position.

Michael Potts (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/MichaelPotts.jpg) – Got more games this year for us and his fine form early on when Thuller and Beckford were injured earnt him his first 2 international caps and goals against Bulgaria and Wales.
Michael Thuller (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/MichaelThuller.jpg) – Injured for around a third of the season but still only did an average job.
Marc Beckford (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/MarcBeckford.jpg) – Turned 20 this year and upped his performances with 32 league goals, the majority of them from the AMC position. To score that many goals when in the same side as the legendary Bernard Brennan is simply amazing.
Bernard Brennan (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2011/Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players/BernardBrennan.jpg) – Has anyone got any words that can describe this man? Breaks 80 goals in a season for the first time and bags 46 in the EPL :eek: Just insane! :D Are there any limits to what this man can achieve?

Great season again.

Bernard Brennan there is no words to say how good he his. Can only describe his name which is ace :) Any chance of seeing how many Bernard Brennan shots turn to goals?

What tactics do you use for Bernard Brennan? or is he that good you just tell him to play :D

Thanks :thup:

His shots on target ratio is above 50% for every season he's played with me! His goals per game ratio for the club overall is 1.04 goals per game! 333 goals in 320 games for FCUM.

I use a mix of 4-4-2 and 4-2-3-1, it doesn't really matter what formation he plays in because he's so good :D

England – European Championship – 2020

After winning the World Cup 2 years earlier in my first tournament in charge, we qualified with ease for the Euro’s. The expectations of the FA were to get to the final, but I reckoned we could go one better than that and win our first ever European Championship Title. However, we would first have to negotiate the competition's "Group of Death".

England Vs Italy (Group B): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/England/2020%20European%20Championships/EnglandVsItaly.jpg)

We played well and should have won by more.

Ireland Vs England (Group B): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/England/2020%20European%20Championships/IrelandVsEngland.jpg)

A much easier game than I anticipated as we managed to keep Brennan quiet!

Hungary Vs England (Group B): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/England/2020%20European%20Championships/HungaryVsEngland.jpg)

We deserved to lose this, but with our only shot on target we won the game in the dying moments as Italy were knocked out by a last minute loss to Ireland :D

France Vs England (Quarter Final): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/England/2020%20European%20Championships/FranceVsEngland.jpg)

A very tight game that we just about deserved to win.

England Vs Czech Republic (Semi-Final): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/England/2020%20European%20Championships/EnglandVsCzechRepublic.jpg)

This was an enthralling match that was really enjoyable to watch and we fully deserved the result that we got.

Spain Vs England (Final): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/England/2020%20European%20Championships/SpainVsEngland.jpg)

In a game of few chances, a moment of brilliance proved to be the difference between 2 very closely matched sides.

Another good season hamilton162 although you must be a bit disappointed to only have picked up 4 trophies last year ;)

Well done on the England job :thup: I'm surprised you beat Ireland so comfortably with Brennan in the squad. I would have put my money on him haunting you and bagging a hatrick!

I was supprised about the Ireland result as well. I thought they'd be a dark horse after qualifying so convincingly for the championships, but no! The manager of Ireland played 4-5-1, which can't have helped Brennan at all as he doesn't play well in a one up top defensive system. It's about the only formation that he doesn't play well in!

Just getting 4 trophies was a tad disappointing, but at least it gives me something to build on for next year! :D

FC United of Manchester - Barclays Premier League - 2020/21

League Table (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/PremierLeagueTable.jpg)

We dominated the league this year, conceding just 10 goals and finishing with maximum points in our best season ever. Brennan was at the heart of this phenomenal achievement, blasting in 60 goals en route to our 6th successive Premier League Crown, which was clinched with just 29 games gone!

Community Shield (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/CommunityShield.jpg) – Brennan’s skill, pace and brilliant finishing give us the perfect start to our new campaign

UEFA Super Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/EuropeanSuperCup.jpg) – After the sending off, I thought we were done for. But that really sparked the game into life. They had more chances, but Brennan’s clinical finishing was the difference as is so often the case! =]

Club World Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/CWCFinal.jpg) – This was really very easy and all it really did was boost morale and give Brennan a chance to add more goals to his impressive tally.

Carling Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/LeagueCupFinal.jpg) – We never seem to get easy draws in this, an EPL team in all rounds again this year but we showed great character to come away from the final victorious when we deserved to lose

FA Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/FACup.jpg) – An easy run to the final for once, where we completely dominated and the scoreline didn’t do us justice!

UEFA Champions League (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/CLFinal.jpg) – We were handed a tough draw in the group stages (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Competitions/CLGroups.jpg). But we sailed through as Brennan hit top gear and his goals propelled us to our 5th consecutive CL win.

Transfers (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/Transfers.jpg)– Kevin Roche came in for an astronomical fee, but he was well worth it as Neumann is getting on and I desperately needed a world class player to replace him and to help bring through the youngsters. Leach and Papon are fantastic prospects for their age.

Finances (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/Finances.jpg) – We only made a small profit due to the phenomenal fee that I had to pay Man City for the services of Kevin Roche

Squad (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/Squad.jpg) – The golden generation are starting to reach their peak now and some are ageing already :( It’s going to be one hell of a tough job to replace them.

Paddy Pitcher (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/PaddyPitcher.jpg) – Another brilliant season from the English No. 1
Remy Riou (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/RemyRiou.jpg) – Is getting increasingly unhappy due to lack of games. Will probably be sold next season.
Cyprien Papon (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/CyprienPapon.jpg) – A fantastic season for the teenage prospect. Will really challenge Pitcher for the keeper’s jersey in the next few years.

Alexander Cuellar (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/AlexanderCuellar.jpg) – Another rock solid season from the star right back, but his days are numbered as he’s reached his peak and is now 30 :(
Steve Foster (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/SteveFoster.jpg) – Lost his place first to Jian and then to Roche due to poor performances, but may be used more at right back as backup to Cuellar.
Robert Neumann (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/RobertNeumann.jpg) – His aerial dominance was clearly visible again this year. Has a couple more years in him yet!
Zhang Jian (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/ZhangJian.jpg) – Stepped up to the challenge and regained his place before Roche arrived in January.
Kevin Roche (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/KevinRoche.jpg) – He cost me an astronomical £84m but he was worth it. Neumann’s successor.
Marvin Davies (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/MarvinDavies.jpg) – A good first season for the youngster, might be sent out on loan to gain some regular first team action next year.
David Vrba (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/DavidVrba.jpg) – Kept bombing forward this year and ended up with an insane number of assists!
Jordan Stead (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/JordanStead.jpg) – Vrba’s successor got a few games, but was injured for nearly half of the season, which halted his development.
Michael Simmonds (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/MichaelSimmonds.jpg) – Cuellar’s replacement went on loan to Scunthorpe in League 2 to get some playing time, hopefully he’ll develop more next year.

John Puckett (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/JohnPuckett.jpg) – What a player. His work rate and ability make him a crucial part of the team.
Fernando (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/Fernando.jpg) – Hardly any games this year due to the arrival of Morrison.
Stuart McGoldrick (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/StuartMcGoldrick.jpg) – Got some games, but needs to step up a level in order to challenge Puckett for the right wing place. May be used at right back more as Cuellar starts to age.
Ali Kvarnlof (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/AliKvarnlof.jpg) – The Finnish playmaker is reaching his peak. Didn’t score much, but put laid chances a plenty for Brennan.
Sam Carr (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/SamCarr.jpg) – A fantastic season from the England international,
Peter Hunt (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/PeterHunt.jpg) – Probably going to be sold soon, he’s simply not good enough.
Ryan Ford (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/RyanFord.jpg) – A great season, he managed to stay injury free and some world class performances were the result. Gained his first England cap and scored on debut.
Harry Parsons (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/HarryParsons.jpg) – Sent out on loan again, he’s not going to develop into a class player like I was hoping unfortunately =[
Stewart Leach (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/StewartLeach.jpg) – A great prospect for the future, a steal at £5m
Armand Demanage (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/ArmandDemanage.jpg) – A brilliant season from the Frenchman who was like dynamite on the left wing alongside Vrba
Max Morrison (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/MaxMorrison.jpg) – Was injured for half of the season but his fine performances when he was available more than made up for it.

Michael Potts (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/MichaelPotts.jpg) – Got fewer games this year as Brennan and Beckford were in top form and Thuller is becoming a better impact sub than the lower league legend.
Michael Thuller (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/MichaelThuller.jpg) – He’s started to become a fantastic impact sub, negating the magnificent Potts =[
Marc Beckford (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/MarcBeckford.jpg) – Didn’t score quite as many goals as last year, but to score that many when his main job is to supply Brennan is unbelievable
Bernard Brennan (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Stuff/BernardBrennan.jpg) – I never thought I’d live to see a player to the 100 goal a season mark under my management, but the living legend that is big Bernard Brennan proved me wrong as he smashed in a ridiculous 123 goals at an average of 1.92 goals a game :eek: What a player, he must surely be one of the best players that has ever graced the game! :D

I also became the Greatest Manager of All Time (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Awards/TomBeckfordontopoftheWorld.jpg) in the Hall of Fame! =D The club also got to keep the Champions League Trophy (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2012/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Awards/FCUMKeepCLTrophy.jpg)!

England – Confederations Cup – 2021

After having won the World Cup the year before and the European Championships 3 years earlier, we came into this as massive favourites. I expected us to reach the final, as did the FA and the fans.

USA Vs England (Group A): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/England/Confederations%20Cup%202021/USAVsEngland.jpg)

We played awfully, nowhere near the standard that has seen us top the rankings for the last 3 years, but a moment of pure brilliance from Carr won us the game.

England Vs Spain (Group A): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/England/Confederations%20Cup%202021/EnglandVsSpain.jpg)

We were in total control in this one, we should have scored more and, believe it or not, the scoreline didn’t do us justice at all!

New Zealand Vs England (Group A): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/England/Confederations%20Cup%202021/NewZealandVsEngland.jpg)

I put out a weakened team and this was the result. A fantastic display from everyone all over the park

This (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/England/Confederations%20Cup%202021/FinalGroupStandings.jpg) was how the group stages finished.

England Vs Mexico (Semi-Final): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/England/Confederations%20Cup%202021/EnglandVsMexico.jpg)

We scored early and never looked back as we booked our place in the final with ease against a poor Mexico side.

USA Vs England (Final): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/England/Confederations%20Cup%202021/EnglandVsUSA.jpg)

They gave us a run for our money in the groups, but the final was a completely different story as we dominated from start to finish to clinch the Confederations Cup for the very first time! :)

I was offered the Brazil Job (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/England/Confederations%20Cup%202021/Brazil.jpghttp:/i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/England/Confederations%20Cup%202021/Brazil) just after the semi final, which I obviously turned down.

This really has turned out to be some career! FC United from BSN to Prem, CL and CWC champs. A club legend, goal scoring machine in Brennan and England's domination of international football. :thup: Great work!

What are your goals now? What else is there to win? ;) I presume your main goal will be to try and reach the 1000 goal mark and further?

Thaks Raware :thup: It's been a phenominal career so far and there's still plenty of life left in it yet!The things that i want to do in the coming years are as follows:

1. To get Brennan to 1,000 career goals and beyond, thus completing the Danny Roberts Challenge.
2. To reach the £2bn balance mark.
3. To get my son to the international goalscoring and caps record for England.
4. To get a youth player of mine introduced into the FM09 YP Hall of Fame

If i manage to achieve all of these things, then I shall be a very, very happy man indeed :D

2. To reach the £2bn balance mark.

I don't think that is possible, the game limits your balance with a 'reserve fund' to stop this happening.

hamilton, is Bernard Brennan a faceinthegame player?

Found him on my save and he is Irish like yours.. but a defender?

Just wondering

28-09-2009, 17:47
Yeah, Bernard Brennan is a faceinthegame regen :thup: I've found him on several other saves of mine. Unfortunately, he's rubbish on all of them! :( :D

SimmoMC
28-09-2009, 19:10
Heh, never realised that. On my game he's a former under 21 Irish international playing in goal for Falkirk. Quite different to yours I think :D.

AdamFitz
29-09-2009, 17:28
Yeah he is, I have him in my U20s at Fiorentina, he's an RB and in truth not very good, but I like buying a few Irish youngsters.

Our 107 game unbeaten run came to an end at the hands of Spurs mid-season, but that didn’t stop us claiming our 7th straight Premier League title

Community Shield (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Comps/CommunityShield.jpg) – A comfortable game

European Super Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Comps/EuropeanSuperCup.jpg) – A relatively easy game and good win to kickstart our season.

Club World Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Comps/CWC.jpg) – Why do the others bother? 2 big wins, Brennan grabbing a hat-trick in both as we clinched our 5th successive CWC Title

Carling Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Comps/LeagueCup.jpg) – We had an easier draw this year, which helped us to said through the rounds with ease before pipping Arsenal in the final! :)

FA Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Comps/FACup.jpg) – We were completely dominant against an out of sorts Chelsea team

The Final itself was a tight affair, Brennan broke the deadlock with his 105th goal of the season and Carr sealed the trophy with a 35 yard stunner! :D

Transfers (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Other/Transfers.jpg)– Ryan McIntosh was the only acquisition this year and came in to rotate with Puckett

Squad Profiles:

Andy Murray (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Other/AndyMurray.jpg) – Nowhere near the first team all season

Cyprien Papon (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Other/CyprienPapon.jpg) – A decent season, although very error prone at times. Attributes rising though

Alexander Cuellar (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Other/AlexanderCuellar.jpg) – He’s 31 now, but he’s still a fantastic player!

Zhang Jian (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Other/ZhangJian.jpg) – Hardly any games due to Neumann, Roche and Davies performing magnificently all year long.
Kevin Roche (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Other/KevinRoche.jpg) – He’s turned into a fantastic partner for Neumann, and will be one of the first names on the team sheet for years to come
Marvin Davies (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Other/MarvinDavies.jpg) – Attributes rising thanks to a storming breakthrough season

John Puckett (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Other/JohnPuckett.jpg) – Just sensational, possibly his best year ever

Stuart McGoldrick (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Other/StuartMcGoldrick.jpg) – A decent amount of games, put appearances limited by injury

Stewart Leach (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Other/StewartLeach.jpg) – Injuries plagued his season, but still managed to play well when he appeared
Armand Demanage (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Other/ArmandDemanage.jpg) – Just wow. Best season yet, and he’s got a couple more years at his peak yet!
Max Morrison (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Other/MaxMorrison.jpg) – Played a bit part role, stepping in when I needed to rest Demanage

Michael Potts (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Other/MichaelPotts.jpg) – The legend turned 30, managed to keep up his record of scoring in every season with us, and decided that he’s going to become a coach! :D
Michael Thuller (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Other/MichaelThuller.jpg) – Hardly any games at all, now 4th in the pecking order behind Smith, Beckford and Brennan!
Liam Smith (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Other/LiamSmith.jpg) – He came through my academy at the start of the season and had a sensational first year, already rated as a Leading Championship/Decent Premier League player!
Marc Beckford (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Other/MarcBeckford.jpg) – What a season, scoring over 35 in the same side as Brennan is an amazing feat
Bernard Brennan (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/FC%20United/End%20of%20Season%20Review%20Screenshots/Players%20and%20Other/BernardBrennan.jpg) – The Irish CSE Forum legend broke the 100 goal barrier for the 2nd season in succession, smashing in a ludicrous 105 goals at an average of 1.54 goals a game. He’ll easily get 1,000 at this rate, and he’s still got a few more years at his peak yet!

Marc is an exceptional player and he's only going to get better. If i didn't have Brennan leading the line, then he'd be the one going for the 1,000 goals. Rooney holds the record for international goals and caps, at 75 and 143 respectively. Marc should smash that in future, he's still only 22 remember! :eek:

Strikers are not hard to come by in my game, i've been very lucky in that i have 4 of the top 10 or so strikers that are around.

As i said in my season report, i'd like to expand the stadium, win the World Cup and find some players that can replace the Golden Generation. I think that you need to read a bit more thoroughly :p

England – World Cup – 2022

After winning all of the tournaments since I arrived as manager, the task was simple, to retain the World Cup, something that only Brazil and Italy had done before.

Ireland Vs England (Group A): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/England/World%20Cup%202022/IrelandVsEngland.jpg)

In the tournament opener, Ireland’s chances evaporated once Brennan was sent off 8 mins in and we cruised to a comfortable victory

England Vs Uruguay (Group A): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/England/World%20Cup%202022/EnglandVsUruguay.jpg)

We dominated in this and should have won much more comfortably. With this win, we qualified from the group stages

England Vs Morocco (Group A): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/England/World%20Cup%202022/EnglandVsMorocco.jpg)

This was target practice for us as we made light work of the surprise qualifiers from Africa.

England Vs Holland (2nd Round): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/England/World%20Cup%202022/EnglandVsHolland.jpg)

We were under par and were matched for the 90 minutes by a stubborn Dutch team. But Morrison came on and ripped their back line to shreds for 30 minutes, claiming Man of the Match with 2 fantastic goals.

England Vs France (Quarter Final): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/England/World%20Cup%202022/EnglandVsFrance.jpg)

This was a very tight game that France had the better of, but our clinical finishing was the difference between the sides as we marched into the semi finals.

After this game, I got offered the Brazil job (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/England/World%20Cup%202022/Brazil.jpg) again, just as I had after the Confederations Cup Semi-Final, but I turned it down again.

England Vs Czech Republic (Semi-Final): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/England/World%20Cup%202022/EnglandVsCzechRepublic.jpg)

We were in complete control from the minute Marc put us ahead with his 50th England Goal and we never looked back, claiming our place in the World Cup Final of 2022 and looking to defend our title.

England Vs Ireland (Final): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2013/England/World%20Cup%202022/EnglandVsIreland.jpg)

In the Final, we met surprise package Ireland, whom Brennan had propelled them into the Final. It was a very tight game with few chances which looked like going to extra time. Then, from out of nowhere, 17 year old Liam Smith struck a crashing 30 yard drive into the roof of the net with 8 minutes left to sink the very brave and determined Irish side. It was so close, yet so far, for Bernard Brennan and Ireland, but a new superstar is born, in the shape of 17 year old Liam Smith! :D

We cant be losing to the English twice in one tournament though.

I admit that i was supprised at Ireland's progress, they have a fairly weak team compared with the likes of Germany and Argentina, but they managed to beat both and a few lesser teams. They do have a few up and coming players though, so they could become a real force by the next World Cup.

The first match was very one sided, with England winning very easily, but the Final was much, much harder. Brennan caused us constant problems, and it was only from a flash of inspiration that the game was prevented from going into extra time and penalties.

I really thought that we’d lose our Premier League crown this year, but after our dreadful start, Brennan inspired us to our 8th successive title!

Community Shield (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/Comps/CommunityShield.jpg) – This was very close and we were very lucky. On another day, it could so easily have gone the other way

European Super Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/Comps/EuroSuperCup.jpg) – The single goal was enough, although we should have scored many more

Club World Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/Comps/CWC.jpg) – Compete and utter dominance as usual

Carling Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/Comps/LeagueCup.jpg) – We had the easiest draw possible this year, dominating every game from start to finish

FA Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/Comps/FACup.jpg) – Man City put up a real fight, but their back line just couldn’t deal with Brennan

UEFA Champions League (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/Comps/ChampionsLeague.jpg) – We struggled through the group stages, but as soon as the knockout rounds began, we hit top form which helped us to secure our 6th straight Champions League title

Transfers (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/Transfers.jpg)– Milosevic, Banfield and Peters came in as potential replacements for the Golden Generation

Finances (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/Finances.jpg) – Still rising at a healthy rate, hopefully we’ll have enough for a stadium expansion soon

Squad (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/Squad.jpg) - The era of the Golden Generation is fast coming to an end :(

Squad Profiles:

Andy Murray (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/AndyMurray.jpg) – Never looked like breaking into the first team
Paddy Pitcher (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/PaddyPitcher.jpg) – Another brilliant season
Remy Riou (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/RemyRiou.jpg) – Got a couple of appearances when Pitcher and Papon were unavailable
Cyprien Papon (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/CyprienPapon.jpg) – Performed well in the games he played in & gained his first 2 international caps for France

Alexander Cuellar (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/AlexanderCuellar.jpg) – 32, but still going strong and still world class
Stuart McGoldrick (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/StuartMcGoldrick.jpg) – Attributes rising fast thanks to an incredible breakthrough season
Steve Foster (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/SteveFoster.jpg) – Kept out of the side by our awesome first choice 4
Robert Neumann (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/RobertNeumann.jpg) – Another fantastic season, but his days are numbered
Kevin Roche (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/KevinRoche.jpg) – As Neumann is phased out, this lad is going to become our rock at the back
Marvin Davies (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/MarvinDavies.jpg) – Continued his brilliant form from his breakthrough season
David Vrba (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/DavidVrba.jpg) – Turned 30 on Christmas day, but hasn’t lost his magic touch just yet
Jordan Stead (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/JordanStead.jpg) – Injured for a majority of the season, which was extremely annoying
Goran Milosevic (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/GoranMilosevic.jpg) – The 20 year old Serbian Sensation came in for a paltry fee in January and slotted into the back 4 effortlessly. Having him in the squad is like having a second Vrba, he’s almost a clone of the greatest left back in the world! :D

John Puckett (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/JohnPuckett.jpg) – Inducted into the CSE Youth Player Hall of Fame at the end of last season and showed just why he is the youngest player to be inducted with his scintillating performances this campaign
Ryan McIntosh (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/RyanMcIntosh.jpg) – Scored his first FCUM goal this campaign and looked lively when on the pitch
Ali Kvarnlof (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/AliKvarnlof.jpg) – Now 30, but still the best midfielder in the world. My favourite player in any FM save, it’ll be a sad day when he decides to retire :(
Sam Carr (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/SamCarr.jpg) – Stepped into a crucial role this season for club and country, working brilliantly in tandem with Kvarnlof
Ryan Ford (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/RyanFord.jpg) – A fantastic player, but not a patch on Kvarnlof or Carr
Stewart Leach (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/StewartLeach.jpg) – Another injury hit season, but he’s developing nicely
Armand Demanage (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/ArmandDemanage.jpg) – Just as insane as ever working in tandem down the left flank with Vrba and Milosevic
Max Morrison (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/MaxMorrison.jpg) – Breakthrough year at club and international level, popping up to score vital goals just when they were needed, whilst constantly attacking opposition right backs

Michael Potts (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/MichaelPotts.jpg) – Attributes rose, despite being 31, and got the 2nd highest average rating, second only to Brennan!
Michael Thuller (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/MichaelThuller.jpg) – Got more games due to niggling injuries that plagued Potts, Smith and Beckford
Liam Smith (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/LiamSmith.jpg) – Plagued by injuries, but 8 goals in 16 games is an outstanding return from an 18 year old with the potential to be the best player in the world
Marc Beckford (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/MarcBeckford.jpg) – Almost got 30 goals again from the AMC position. Just superb & probably the second best player in the world behind his strike partner
Bernard Brennan (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2014/EOS%20Screenshots/BernardBrennan.jpg) – The Irishman bagged over 100 club goals for the 3rd season running, he’s at his peak now and the world is at his feet. 1,000 goals is fast approaching, he’s currently got 703 goals for club and country! :D

Aims for Next Year and the Future


· Expand the stadium
· Get Brennan past the 800 goal mark
· Get Marc Beckford to become the All Time England Goalscorer (He’s on 71 goals currently, the record is 75, held by Wayne Rooney

I might get FM10, i might not. If i do, i'm going to try and get Brennan and Marc Beckford to the 1,00o mark and finish all of the careers of the Golden Generation, including Pitcher, Marc, Puckett etc. before starting a new save, so it'll be a while before/if i start a new save :thup:

If i do get FM10 however, i'm going to be over to Gigg Lane quicker than you can say Bernard Brennan! :D

Just a little note from me to say that this career is far from dead, i've had laptop troubles and a mountain of work to do recently.

However, i have now finished all work and sorted the laptop problems and Bernard Brennan and the rest of the FCUM team are alive & kicking, and are hungry for yet more success :D

'Mon the goals :D

Good to hear :thup: I'm expecting the man to hit the 1,000 goal mark before the year's out. :D

I think that 297 goals in around 65-70 games would be a bit crazy tbh Raware, even the great Andrew Smylie couldn't do that at his peak in Northern Ireland, so for Brennan to do it in England would require a great deal of luck, skill and brilliance! :D

Although he's started this season better than any other, i think that the 1,000 target won't be met for another 3 years or so! :D

Midway through the season, and Brennan has just netted his 50th Ireland goal (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODE1E3-EC0k), the 3rd ofa hat-trick against Israel, a hat-trick which sent Ireland through to the 2024 European Championships by the skin of their teeth, and a pretty decent goal it was too!

Knowing Ireland, they'll go on to win the whole competition now and end England's unbeaten run! :D :(

Well, the groups for the 2024 European Championships have been drawn (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/Comps/Euro2024Draw.jpg).

I'm fairly pleased with this group, although i'd have liked to have been in Group D, but i'm also thankful that i'm not in Group C, that's a real "Group of Death" as far as i'm concerned! Holland, Spain and Ireland are all in the top 10 of the world rankings! :eek:

But we (England) are miles clear at the top of the rankings, so we should retain our trophy. Having said that, anything could happen as Bulgaria and Croatia aren't bad sides and if we don't perform to our best, we could be heading out at the group stage!

So, the legend that is Bernard Brennan has just turned 30, and as a result, his long term plans have been put into his personal screen. It doesn't make good reading unfortunately (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/Other%20and%20Misc/BrennanFuturePlans.jpg) :(

However, there is light at the end of the tunnel as Ali Kvarnlof, the midfield legend, had exactly the same plans a year ago, but today is probably staying in the game (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/Other%20and%20Misc/KvarnlofFuturePlans.jpg) :cool:

Here's hoping that with a bit of luck and persuasion, the great Irish goalmachine can be pursuaded to stay as well! :thup:

League Positions Graph (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/Comps/LeagueGraph.jpg)

It looked as if we were going to lose our crown for the first time in the first half of the season, but then we started to play brilliantly and the title was sealed in superb fashion. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omCK2ZO1c1c)

Community Shield (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/Comps/CommunityShield.jpg) – We went 2 up inside the first 35 minutes, but from there we were lucky to only concede once as Arsenal threatened all the way to the final whistle

European Super Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/Comps/EuroSuperCup.jpg) – I made a stupid mistake in leaving Brennan on the bench for this once, but he came on and prevented the match going the distance with 2 crucial goals that kick-started his and our season

Club World Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/Comps/CWC.jpg) – Dominance in the semis, not as much so in the final as I fielded just 2 first team regulars, who proved to be the difference

Carling Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/Comps/CarlingCup.jpg)– Brennan put us ahead with a 35 yard peach and Demanage added a spectacular second as we secured our 5th Carling Cup title

FA Cup (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/Comps/FACup.jpg) – We cruised through the early rounds, but the games started to pile up, and this happened as i rested some players ahead of the Champions League Final

UEFA Champions League (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/Comps/ChampionsLeague.jpg) – We hit top form in the groups, maximum points for the first time in a couple of years, then Arsenal gave us a real fight in the quarters, before being sunk by Beke. The Final saw some of the greatest football ever produced, a fitting way to see out some legend who will no longer be first choice after this season

Transfers (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/EOS%20Screenshots/Transfers.jpg) – Thuller leaves for a big fee & some fantastic youngsters come in to replace the fast aging golden generation who are entering their final years at FC United

Finances (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/EOS%20Screenshots/Finances.jpg) – Boosted by stadium income & Thuller’s transfer

Squad (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/EOS%20Screenshots/Squad.jpg) – The Golden Generation are starting to fade, this season was the last as a first team regular for a few, and some will be starting their final season as a first team regular

Squad Profiles:

Andy Murray (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/EOS%20Screenshots/AndyMurray.jpg) – Leaving on a free in the summer, I’ve got no place for him in my side these days
Paddy Pitcher (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/EOS%20Screenshots/PaddyPitcher.jpg) – What a season, this man really is the greatest keeper in the world
Remy Riou (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/EOS%20Screenshots/RemyRiou.jpg) – Was on the verge of leaving, but signed a new contract just before his old one ran out!
Cyprien Papon (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/EOS%20Screenshots/CyprienPapon.jpg) – Fantastic prospect, performing much better than his attributes suggest

Alexander Cuellar (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/EOS%20Screenshots/AlexanderCuellar.jpg) – 33 and starting to show it now, this coming season may be his last as a first team regular :(

Kevin Roche (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/EOS%20Screenshots/KevinRoche.jpg) – Superb season, stepping into Neumann’s shoes at just the right time

David Vrba (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/EOS%20Screenshots/DavidVrba.jpg) – Still going strong at 31, the days at his peak are far from over
Jordan Stead (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/EOS%20Screenshots/JordanStead.jpg) – A brilliant talent, but extremely injury prone, only managing 6 appearances this year in a campaign blighted by injury
Goran Milosevic (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/EOS%20Screenshots/GoranMilosevic.jpg) – Stepping into a crucial role, developing at just the right time and an able replacement for Vrba in a couple of years

Ali Kvarnlof (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/EOS%20Screenshots/AliKvarnlof.jpg) – You wouldn’t think he was nearly 32 if you looked at his performances, my favourite FM player ever is far from finished! :D
Roy Thomas Hanssen (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/EOS%20Screenshots/RoyThomasHanssen.jpg) – This guy is the real deal, is touted as the new Kvarnlof and for a reason

Stewart Leach (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/EOS%20Screenshots/StewartLeach.jpg) – Not developing as I’d hoped, partly due to the arrival of Hanssen
Armand Demanage (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/EOS%20Screenshots/ArmandDemanage.jpg) – Ripped every right back to shreds in every game, superb player

Liam Smith (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/EOS%20Screenshots/LiamSmith.jpg) – Injured for the first part of the season, then kept out of the team by the arrival of Beke in January, he’s got a real fight on his hands to get into the 1st team on a regular basis
Marc Beckford (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/EOS%20Screenshots/MarcBeckford.jpg) – World class again for club and country, I’m very excited about seeing him leading the line once Brennan has reached 1,000 FCUM goals, he could be even more lethal than the Irishman
Bernard Brennan (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/EOS%20Screenshots/BernardBrennan.jpg) – Less than 200 goals away from the 1,000 now, what a sensational player, even at 30 he was still banging in the goals like he was when he was at his peak 3/4 years ago

Aims for Next Year and the Future

· Expand the Stadium
· Get all of the Golden Generation to stay in the game
· Get Brennan to 1000 Career Goals
· Get Beckford to 100+ England Goals

I'm just going to outline a few things about the cheating accusations that have been recieved in both this thread and around the forums.

1. I know i've not cheated, so if you're looking for me to say that i've cheated, then you're not going to get it.
2. If you choose not to believe me, then it's fine by me, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and i respect that.
3. If you choose not to believe me, then there's no need to come into this thread and accuse me of cheating constantly.
4. If you repeatedly post in here saying that i've cheated, then i'm going to ask to have your posts removed as they're not needed when i've repeatedly expressed my thoughts on this topic several times in both this thread and across the forums.
5. Questions regarding the save are welcomed, i will happily answer them to the best of my ability. I'd rather your air you air your concerns and have them answered than let things come to a head in one angry, violent post. However, if this drifts into constant spam posts, i'll have the posts deleted as stated above.

Thanks for your time

It's very simple really. A player can't go up 7 points in one season. It's impossible. If I remember correct the maximum possible is 3 points a season.

Besides, the composition of attributes in some of those players look highly suspicious, to say the least.

But if you're having fun playing like that, by all means continue. It's your game and you do what you want with it. But if you're looking for respect, you're not getting it from me. And I suspect quite a few others.

The only explanation for this growth that someone has come up with, which is an educated guess is that a) Puckett has incredibly high professionalism, which helped this huge growth (I don't know what his professionalism is, this is just an educated guess) along with a custom training schedule, being tutored by Ali Kvarnlof and lots of games at a very high level caused a massive growth spurt.

England – European Championship – 2024

This was England’s second European Championships under my management, and we were touted as early favourites by the media. But before we could think about the possibility of retaining our title, we had to get past stiff opposition in the group stages

Croatia Vs England (Group A): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/England/2024%20European%20Championship/CroatiaVsEngland.jpg)

A really topsy turvy game, but in the end, some sublime work from Steve Nicholson on England debut down the right helped to save our blushes against a very stubborn Croatia side.

England Vs Germany (Group A): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/England/2024%20European%20Championship/EnglandVsGermany.jpg)

Carr’s early screamer & Beckford’s goal from the spot saw us into the lead before the break. Zimmer pulled one back to set up a tense finale, but we soon killed off the hopes of a German fightback. Yet despite this, we were poor. We lacked the determination and flair that we usually have for the 2nd game in a row, which was concerning.

England Vs Bulgaria (Group A): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/England/2024%20European%20Championship/EnglandVsBulgaria.jpg)

We did just enough to win this. But on this form, we’re going out in the next round.

Italy Vs England (Quarter Final): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/England/2024%20European%20Championship/ItalyVsEngland.jpg)

On previous form, we would have been smashed to pieces, but the determination returned in this game and we played well to secure a deserved win, probably our first deserved win of the tournament.
England Vs France (Semi-Final): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/England/2024%20European%20Championship/EnglandVsFrance.png)

We improved again against a strong French side to make sure we had a chance to defend our European crown.

England Vs Germany (Final): (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/England/2024%20European%20Championship/EnglandVsGermanyFinal.png)

We dominated, but couldn’t convert our chances to goals and Thuller made us pay with 2 brilliantly taken goals to end our unbeaten run that had started at the 2018 World Cup.

So with the tournament over, we bid farewell to some players from the England setup in heartbreaking style. Special mention goes to Theo Walcott for breaking the England Caps Record (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2015/England/2024%20European%20Championship/CapsRecord.jpg) on what will probably be his last international appearance. He’s done his country proud over the years, playing a crucial role on the right wing through 5 World Cups and 4 European Championships. His pace, flair and running at defenders will be sorely missed.

After recieving several comments about John Puckett and his abnormal growth, i was thinking about letting him go and finding a replacement.

Then, shortly after the European Championships had ended, this (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2016/PuckettBid.jpg) message (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2016/PuckettBid2.jpg) popped up in my inbox, which effectively made the decision for me.

And so, on the 10th July 2025, just over 9 years after coming through the FC United youth system, before the start of our first season in the Premier League, John Puckett left FC United of Manchester and signed for Arsenal in a deal worth upwards of £60m (http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/FC%20United%20-%20Season%2016/PuckettTransfer.jpg). His presence in midfield will be sorely missed.

Did you sell him because of his growth ? What does that prove ?

hamilton162
10-01-2010, 18:49
It doesn't prove anything, and i know that.

I've sold him because of some of the comments that i've recieved regarding his growth and the cheating accusations that i've been on the end of time and time again. By letting him go, i am attempting to stop some of the negative comments regarding the save, the majority of which were about me supposedly altering his CA and PA. By not having him at my disposal, i have lost the so called "unfair advantage", that many users have described, of having a player who developed at an astounding rate.

It wasn't an easy decision by any means, but i felt it was one that had to be taken if the save was to gain any credibility.

How can he edit them if they have come through the youth system? And a more interesting question why do you even care if he has at all. If that is the way he wants to play it if he has then thats how he wants to play it. If you don't like how he is playing his game don't read this thread simple as. Leave the guy alone. If I didn't know better i'd say your jealous of the career he has had with FC United.

Back to what this topic should be about you have had a remarkable career so far and I wish you the best of luck for the future.

I should have added a bit more to that post tbh, which i'll add now.

During the Euro's, he'd become unhappy and said that it was time for him to move on and that he wanted a new challenge. I tried to pursuade him to stay, but it went round and round in circles and the only way of stopping it was to sell him. Having unhappy players, especially one of the stars of your team, is not good for team morale.

I also have to admit that the accusations were getting to me when i wrote that post, even though i said they weren't. I've been bombarded with abuse for a few sustained periods in the last few months, and each time i've come very, very close to calling time on the save.

As i stated earlier, i now hope to try and regain some respect from the users of this forum by selling him and no longer having a supposedly edited player at my disposal.

How it means that i've admitted to editing him is beyond me, i'm purely trying to make it a more enjoyable career for everyone to follow & to reduce the amount of abuse that i'm on the end of.

As far as I can see though, people are just questioning your game, which is understandable really, no one is being abusive.

Well done on getting a 60 million profit from him. I hope your concious is clean... Sad thing is, it probably is.

The problems with this save goes way beyond that one player, as can be fairly easily seen from the profiles. But like I said above, if you like playing this way, by all means do. But please stop insulting our intelligence. We weren't born yesterday. We've played the game long enough to know what is within the realms of possibility.

Why is a striker who scores over 100 goals in a season worth so little? you have a son who happens to be world class and scores over 90 goals for England before hes 25, added to all the other things people have spoken about. It's just too much for me.

This dicussion has been had time and time again in here, CSE, GD and just about everywhere else on the forums, I really see no need to have it again, especially considering that i've stopped posting updates. I fully understand why people find it hard to believe; I also realise that everyone is entitled to their opinion and I respect that. Part of the reason that I have stopped posting updates about this save, and indeed any of my other FM threads, is to prevent the boards turning into one massive discussion about this game, which occured several times during the course of this career.

I'm sorry but to go that quick from the non leagues, to winning the European Cup. Your having a laugh. Only a moron would believe that was possible without FM SCOUT
