View Full Version : Your greatest result/achievement on FM11 so far?

12-11-2010, 13:35
As with every new FM game, I've started with my team Nottingham Forest. Here's my best game and achievement far:

Sitting 4 points clear of Boro at the top of the league in January and a series of favourable draws in the Carling Cup sees me in the semi-finals, where I am to play the Premier League's bottom side Blackpool.

Blackpool went into the first leg at Bloomfield Road on the back of 5 straight defeats and morale was low, so I felt confident. A great display from Charlie Adam inspired them to a 3-1 lead ahead of the 2nd leg and it looked like I'd miss out on the achievement of getting a second tier team to a cup final.

Heading into the 2nd leg I knew I had to keep Adam quiet. I altered my usual 4-2-3-1 formation and brought Radi Majewski, who usually plays in the AMC role, back into a deeper central midfield role. This allowed me to bring in the more defensive-minded Guy Moussi in for Chris Cohen and I told him to man-mark Charlie Adam.

We dominated the first 20 minutes but a Blackpool break away saw them take the lead on the night and go 4-1 up on aggregate. Game over I thought. But we quickly responded with Earnshaw pulling one back. It was 1-1 at half time, 2-4 on aggregate.

Then in the second half: BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG. Five goals, including Earnie sealing his hat-trick, saw us beat Blackpool 6-1 on the night and 7-4 on aggregate, putting us through to final to face Chelsea at Wembley.

Then a quick look at Charlie Adam's match rating revealed he'd been given 5.1/10. A tactical masterstroke by myself to mark him out of the game, even if I do say so myself.

What has been your greatest result or achievement so far on FM11?
