It was only a Friendly, but i lost 9-1 to Barcelona B (Im knockbreda).

Actualy biggest loss, IIRC is 5-0.....

While top of the premiership, I lost 7-2 to Arsenal, in a match which they had only 9 shots.

My goalie didn't make a save until we were 5 down.

The keeper for that match, who had been first choice up to this point, only played another 30 more minutes for the club (in which he conceded 3) and was quickly shipped off at the next opportunity.

In retrospect, it's a team effort, and I was maybe a bit harsh, but I was pretty arsed off.

I've probably (almost certainly) lost by more than 5 goals at some point, but that one was definately the most memorable.

In a multiplayer game, where I controlled West Ham, my friend lost 10-0 to Chelsea at home with his Tottenham side. Worst thing I've seen in FM...

05-01-2008, 08:09
My biggest defeat until now has been 5-0 away at Giuseppe Meazza with Barça. It was a group stage match in the CL. Incidentally, I went on to defeat that same Inter in the final, coming back from being a goal down 3 times to smack the 4-3 winning goal past their GK in the +90th minute (just before injury time). It was a sweet revenge for my biggest thrasing ever, and one of the most exciting, satisfying moments ever in a FM. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

In my FM07 game, I'm currently in 2029 and my biggest defeats have both been 5-0, both while managing Aachen. Once to Duisburg, and once to Dresden. Not all that exciting really.

05-01-2008, 09:02
11-0, Singapore vs Australia. I was Singapore.

Totally out of my depth. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I just lost 0-7 to Villa as Leicester, my team was filled up with 4's I also had a 2 and a 3 and a 5. I Fined all 11 players 2 weeks wages and only 2 of them thought it was it was unfair.

For some reason my team collpases totally against 4-2-3-1, my season so far is pretty decent I'm 9th with a media prediction of 17th, no cash and no wagebudget so I havent been able to signt a single player this season.

05-01-2008, 09:37
My worst ever result on FM was probably my first game on my FM07 Oxford City save. On the first day of the season, playing promotion hopefuls Newport County, who had a team chock-full of Man United loanees, I was hammered 7-1. Bot my first and substitute goalkeepers got sent off with 30 minutes left and I was destroyed, with Danny Galbraith hitting 6.

Amazingly however, I won on the last day of the season to sneak into the final playoff spot, at the expense of... Newport County! They missed out on goal difference (they would have had to beat me 10-1 to overhaul my final position), so in hindsight, it could've been worse.

05-01-2008, 09:51
unbeaten in around 6 games with barnet, attempting to get into the playoffs we came up against bury, struggling near the bottom and a team who we had always had trouble with (we lost 5-0 at their place in my first season)... i was confident but we were 1-0 down at half time... i asked the assistant for advice and he told them they were letting the team down, fair enough...

so at full time: barnet 0 bury 7

the "letting the team down" teamtalk NEVER works... not with small teams anyway... at 6-0 down i had to employ time wasting tactics to limit the final scoreline because we had been so bad

In Reading 10/11 season I lost at home 6-3 to Newcastle. The 2nd match of my next season I lost 6-2 to blackburn at home after having won 3-1 having played 70 mins with 10 men

05-01-2008, 10:01
My above post should have said " after having won my first match"

Couldn't edit it, so had to repost

05-01-2008, 11:32
Lost 5-0 at home to Arsenal during my end of season slump with Derby.

05-01-2008, 12:02
I lost 6-1 in my first season as derby but in the same season I did come back from 5 behind to beat Sunderland 6-5! They are far and away my biggest scoring and exciting or frustrating games.

Not on this version of FM but still a painful day for me.

I was West Ham (15 seasons down the line) and in the champions league final against Inter. They got a man sent off in the first ten minutes and I went in 3-0 up at half time. I pressed continue and sat back for a relaxed second half.

Final score?

West Ham 3 Inter 7. Every shot, and I mean every shot, they had went in. Two from corners, two thirty yard screamers and three super solo goals from an amazing Italian regen with a name I cannot pronounce.

8-1, keeper played a 2, didnt have a backup, put a defender in goal, he ended up playing a 4.

for the record i was York City and my opponent was Aston Villa, FA Cup

05-01-2008, 19:19
Was crusing near the top of the BSP with Hinckley and lost 7-1 to York who were 22nd.

First defeat of the season too. Gutted!

I have a new Biggest defeat, well not sure how big it was but I just lost the FA cup to Liverpool by 2-1.

The winner, scored by Torres, got the silent treatment from the FA afterwards. It kinda sux to lose the final on goal that should have been dissallowed. Gutted!


06-01-2008, 06:29
Best one was when i was united

I was 4 - 0 up from the first leg V Lazio

So i thought, ok ill rest Tevez, Rooney, Aguerio, Iniesta, Ronaldo, Rio, Vidic and Akinfeev

I ended up losing the game 5 - 0 at home to lazio lol

06-01-2008, 06:53
I lead 2:0 as Lvp against Man Utd and was playing wonderful football, and all of a sudden Paul Scholes decided to score 2 long range shots, and in the end we lose 5:2 despite having more shots on goal...

06-01-2008, 06:57
I lost 7-1 at home to Bristol City with MK Dons in the League Cup.

06-01-2008, 07:00
this isn't really a biggest defeat but I have just lost 6 games in a row with Newcastle which is in fact the longest run of defeats ever in football manager since I began playing it right back in 92 !

06-01-2008, 14:54
Biggest win: Foxes Vs Watford
I scored 5 yes 5 in the 1st half with michael MIFSUD scoring 4! (He has scored 22 in 27 league games currently!)
This was only my 2nd game in charge, but i seemed to just score every time i went forward!

However, i only scored one in the second half.

Once i beat Notts Co 11-0 in pre-season! http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif

06-01-2008, 15:03
5-2 at anfield in the carling cup, AET & 10 men anyway.

biggest ever was in fm06, 6-0 as madrid at the nou camp. i beat them 6-0 at home anyway.

06-01-2008, 15:12
In my 1st attempt at LLM i was managing Histon in the Conference South (I think).
First match, lost 6-0.
Second match, lost 7-0.

It's fair to say I never lasted much longer as a LLM. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

06-01-2008, 15:23

... Well, I think you will see me in this topic very soon... Tonight I will play against United States in WCQ... and I am Netherlands Antilles http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I tried a season Kevin Keegan-stylee as Newcastle manager. The games against Sunderland and Boro were insane.

Sunderland (H) 6v2 Win
Sunderland (A) 5v1 Loss

Boro (H) 7v1 Win
Boro (A) 6v0 Loss

I was using the Enigma tactic from CM Frenzy which gives loads of chances bu is terrible sometimes http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif and it was pre patch so maybe that helped.

I think I lost to Arsenal 9v3 but still managed a European position, was relegation fodder next season though http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

07-01-2008, 04:34
Playing Leigh RMI in Conference North, I lost 5-0 against my youth team. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

07-01-2008, 04:38
I was Farsley Celtic and ... rather embarassingly I lost ... 14-0 to Crawley in the league! Didn't do my goal difference any good! I went down 3-0 then went all out attack, and that was my downfall really .... Guy Madjo scored 10 goals for Crawley!

07-01-2008, 06:03
Not FM, but on FIFA on the XBox I had a 7-6 game with Rosenborg vs Brann in the Norwegian Cup. Steffen Iversen scored 4 (they too had one that scored 4) but it wasn't a good day for the defenders. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

07-01-2008, 06:04
My record defeats on my current game are both 7-1 losses. One was an 4th round away FA cup match against Fulham who were in the EPL and I was still in the BSP. The other defeat was embrassing, my first season in the Championship a League cup first round at home against Port Vale struggling in League 2. I dropped the goalkeeper who didn't play a first team game for another 11 months http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

I've had plenty of other total thrashings but there the only games I have conceeded more then 6 goals. The team seems incapable of losing by a close margin, I refuse to shutup shop even if 2-3 goals down and always try to salvage at least a point. The team is definately better going forward then defending, just because my scouts refuse to find any quality defensive talent.
