    Thanks for the reply, at the moment I guess we would get the chokers tag in the CL.

    World Cup 2026
    Holders = Argentina ----- Hosts = Argentina
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Game 1
    Nigeria 0 Croatia 1
    Not a great start as Croatia edge close game.

    Game 2
    Serbia 0 Nigeria 1
    Another tight game but we deserved the win.

    Game 3
    Nigeria 2 Uruguay 1
    We looked to be heading out but late strike puts us through.

    Group C - Final Table


    Through to 2nd Round
    Argentina, Russia, France, Austria, Croatia, Nigeria, South Africa, Sweden
    Spain, Switzerland, Peru, Trinidad & Tobago, England, Colombia, Italy, USA


    Out of World Cup
    Mexico, Tunisia, Australia, Cameroon, Uruguay, Serbia, Holland, Chile
    Saudi Arabia, Ghana, Bulgaria, Japan, Iran, Germany, Brazil, South Korea

    Brazil were favourites to win the World Cup but they suffered 1-0 defeats to Italy and USA
    and drew 2-2 with South Korea, needless to say the manager got the chop.


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

    Second Round
    South Africa 0 Nigeria 2
    Nwánkwo brace sees us into the last eight.



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

    Quarter-Final
    Austria 1 Nigeria 2
    Nwánkwo with another double as we make last four.



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



    It would have to be England, they still haven't won the World Cup since
    1966 but they are ranked 1st in the World rankings, Nigeria are ranked 25th.

    So this is gonna be a very hard task if we are to pull off a shock win.
    I will be up against some of my Stopsley players, Sean Carter, Graham Lewin,
    Trevor Bird, Jason Sercombe and Phil Harris are in the England squad.

    World Cup 2026
    Holders = Argentina ----- Hosts = Argentina

    Semi-Final
    Nigeria 2 England 3
    Player Ratings

    We pushed them close and led 2-1 at the break but we couldn't hold out and
    it was my Stopsley player Jason Sercombe who broke Nigerian hearts.

    Spain beat France 1-0 in the other semi-final so we will face France in the 3rd place play-off .


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

    3rd Place Play-off
    France 0 Nigeria 2
    We finish on a high to take 3rd place.

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

    Final
    England 0 Spain 2
    Spain are World Champions for a second time, England finish runners-up for a third time.

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

    Golden Boot - Emmanuel Nwánkwo with 9 of Nigeria 11 goals.

    Dream Team - Dominated by England and Spain, Nwánkwo makes into the 11.

    World Rankings - England stay in 1st, Spain are up to 2nd and Nigeria up to 8th.


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

    I have resigned as manager of Nigeria, there are some other tempting international
    jobs available right now, Jose Antonio Reyes decided to resign from his position after
    guiding Spain to glory, so I did consider applying, Italy, USA and Uruguay are others
    that could be interesting, USA and Uruguay interest me the most but my plan was
    to resign and give international management a break unless the big job comes up.

    Season 18 - 2026/2027 --- July, August, September & October

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

    Manager News
    Current Premier League Managers

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



    We lifted another trophy in pre-season by beating the MLS All-Stars 2-0.
    We lost yet again in the Community Shield, Man City won 4-3 on penalties.

    The season started well with two wins, we then faced Man City again
    and yet again they came out on top with a 3-2 win.

    That was to be our only defeat as we then went on an unbeaten
    run which is now twelve games and counting at the end of October.

    One outstanding game in that run was the 6-4 win against Newcastle.




    Transfers
    We spent over £90m bringing in nine players.

    Critchley (GK)
    Thomas (D C)
    Timms (M RC)
    Joselito (M C)
    Schmidt (D/WB/M L)
    Harvey (M L)
    Willetts (ST)
    Buthelezi (ST)
    Reimer (ST)


    Champions League
    Looking very good at the halfway stage of the group again, a 100% record
    and victory in our next game should secure a place in the next round.

    Good to see someone around here with a created team. Seems you all are well on your way to becoming a legendary club too, much to the consternation of your compatriots in the EPL I'm sure. ;)

    Thanks.

    Yeah I like my created club

    The other EPL (well probably all the other English clubs) might not, but they will probably be getting some joy at our CL final defeats.

    Season 18 - 2026/2027 --- November, December & January

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



    We extended our unbeaten run to 14 games, but it was ended
    with a 3-2 loss to Man Utd.
    We lost heavily in the Champions League, but we had already
    qualified so I made several changes to the side.
    We then went on a 7 game winning streak before Man City
    came to Stopsley Park and they edged a tight game 1-0.

    We faced Watford in the League Cup semi-finals and I made changes
    to the team for the first leg and we slipped to a surprise defeat.
    So with work to do in the second leg I opted to go with a stronger
    line-up, however it didn't look stronger as we soon found ourselves
    3-0 down, but as it looked like we going out with a crushing defeat
    we staged an amazing fightback to lead 4-3, Watford netted just
    3 minutes later to secure a place in the final after a 4-4 draw.




    Top of the table with a game in hand on second placed Spurs.
    We are looking good for 4th title in a row.




    Qualified with two games to play so I rested some players
    and gave back-up and youth players some CL experience.

    We will face AC Milan in the first knockout round.


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

    Transfers
    We spent just over £9m bringing in four more players.

    Blakeley (AM C)
    Stojanovic (AM L)
    Cooper (GK)
    Roberts (AM/FC)

    Four players were sold.

    Season 18 - 2026/2027 --- February, March, April & May

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



    We secured two 1-0 wins over Tottenham in January, the wins saw
    us open up a bigger lead and also saw Tottenham's title challenge
    fade badly as they slipped down the table.

    In February we beat Liverpool in a five goal thriller, with them
    Man City and Man Utd being the main challengers for the title.

    In March we suffered a 1-0 loss to lowly Chelsea who were in
    another relegation battle, but we bounced back with big wins
    over Everton and title challengers Man Utd.

    In April we suffered a big home defeat to Aston Villa but our lead
    was now quite comfortable that it wasn't a massive blow to our hopes.
    Earlier in the month I celebrated my 1000th game in FM management
    with a 3-0 win against Burnley.

    The title was wrapped up with a 4-0 win against Notts County.
    We took just a point from our last two games as I decided to
    rest players for the Champions League Final.




    We made it to the Champions league final for a fourth season on the trot.
    beating AC Milan 3-1, Ajax 9-2 and Inter Milan 8-4 on the way to face Hamburg.
    The 2nd leg against Inter got scary early on.

    So the Stopsley fans and management were hoping it would be fourth time lucky ...

    35 minutes in and Hamburg took the lead and we were fearing the worst.
    We were level on the stroke of half-time and our hopes of finally winning
    were high again, but neither team could find a winner in the second half
    so the final went to extra-time and we lost yet again, totally gutted.

    Season 19 - 2026/2027

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

    Community Shield - Stopsley 0 Arsenal 2
    Yet again we find ourselves defeated in the Shield.

    We have just one win from six attempts.


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

    Champions League - Group Draw
    We are drawn in Group C and will face Genoa again.
    We also have Standard Liege and PSV Eindhoven.




    Well let's see.

    Season 19 - 2027/2028 --- July, August & September

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



    So we started by losing the Community shield yet again, nevermind because
    we have made a fine start in the PL and cups, the only game
    that I would class as a poor performance was against Huddersfield,
    but they have proved over previous season that they are tricky opponents.

    Made a great start in the Champions League against Standard.
    We were then held at home by Genoa but I was happy with the point,
    Genoa played well and a draw was a fair reflection of the game.

    I made several changes for the cup game against Bournemouth.
    The lads did well and we progressed with a comfortable win.




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

    Transfers
    Rojas (DM, M C)
    Ortiz (AM RL, ST)


    Just two players signed, I had adjusted the wage budget to raise
    our transfer funds up to £124m, but the club have entered takeover talks,
    so a transfer embargo was imposed and couldn't make anymore signings.

    The takeover talks are dragging on, one minute in danger of callapse
    then the next minute back on, also in a press release it was said
    that if takeover goes through I will be replaced as Manager by my
    Assistant Manager Javier Hernandez, that looks unlikely now, but I
    will reveal why in another update later.

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



    I could have offered him a higher wage to try and get him to stay with us,
    I decided I wouldn't stand in his way of taking up a manager position.

    I promoted from within the club, Oscar De Marcos is my new Assistant Manager.

    Season 19 - 2027/2028 --- October, November & December

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



    We were knocked out of the League Cup by QPR, I made several changes
    to the side and we went out in a 3-1 defeat after extra-time.

    We soon got over the cup upset and went on a ten game winning
    streak in the Premier League and Champions League.

    The winning streak came to an end in a game against our nearest
    Premier League rivals Arsenal, after going behind early, we hit back to
    lead 2-1 and it looked like the winning run would continue.
    Arsenal netted in the 87th minute and the game finished 2-2.

    Going into the new year we have a two point lead with a game
    in hand on second placed Arsenal and remain unbeaten.

    Might be too early to think about going the distance unbeaten
    but well, it's only natural to think about it, can we do it though?




    Champions League - Group C
    We had qualified for next round after 4 games, so I was able
    to rest players for the 5th game, but I decided to go with a strong
    line-up in the last game against Genoa because they were level on
    points with PSV and I saw it as a chance to knock a tricky team
    out of the competition. we did just that in a surprisingly easy game.

    Season 19 - 2027/2028 --- January, February & March

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



    Late late goals give us win over Man Utd.

    Hopes of going unbeaten are ended by Aston Villa.

    Tough tie with Atletico Madrid as we lose 1st leg 1-0.
    We win 2nd leg 1-0 and take victory 4-1 on penalties.

    Champions League quarter-final against Man City ends in 2-2 draw.





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

    Transfers
    Our spending goes up to just under £100m with Dutch defender Ivo Van Der Putten
    joining in a £20m deal from Fiorentina and highly recommended goalkeeper Patryk Zalewski
    joining from Hertha Berlin for £8m, Brazilian centre back Mario also joined us from Man City.

    Just a snippet from our current season.



    We have had quite a few bad defeats in this campaign but that is one of our worst ever, probably is our worst ever.

    Did we do enough in the 1st leg to get through?

    It's gonna be a tight finish in the Premier League...

    Gunnarsson Cup is a Pre-Season cup named after current chairman
    and it will be staged every pre-season while he is our chairman.


    Man City beat Real Madrid to win the Champions League.

    1 Trophy for us this season the European Super Cup, not our biggest target but it did mean
    we qualified for the World Club Championship, but that proved to be another final we lost.

    Our wins/losses in cup finals is in the negative, not quite sure how bad our
    record is but the challenge is on to improve the record.

    We will play Barcelona in first knockout round, a repeat of last season
    when we won through with a 3-2 aggregate win.

    Season 21 - 2029/2030
    ________________________________________


    January 2030


    A good month on the whole but we suffered yet another defeat to Arsenal.
    We are having a much better cup run than last season and despite a
    dodgy second leg against Huddersfield we will face Aston Villa in the final.

    It's gonna be a good fight for the title, I would say that anyone out of the
    top 4 or even maybe the top 6 could still win the Premier League.

    Maw74, you asked if I could make you a logo. I've been taking a stab at it, and so far I've got this (inspired by the former badge of a certain Nottinghamshire club):

    (EDIT: REMOVED IMAGES - as they were horrible, new version posted below ;))

    By the way, are you planning to do a Stopsley game on FM2012? The game is great, lots better than '10.

    Thanks, looking good so far.

    Yeah I have been thinking about doing a Stopsley game on FM12, maybe with Kenco's World League Database, but at the moment I have a Spurs game and a career game (Auckland City) going on with FM12.

    SEASON 29 - 2037/2038

    1ST TEAM

    RESERVES

    UNDER 18'S


    TRANSFERS

    Wilson & Gutiérrez were signed due to scout reports
    so hopefully they will progress well, the free players
    were just signed to increase numbers in reserve squad.

    Major Signing - José Luis Lorenzo
    We needed another option for the left midfield.
    Lorenzo fits the bill perfectly and will be playing
    at left back unless Valadez is injured or rested.

    Stopsley Utd Captain - Paulista
    I have just made him our permanent Captain for the new season,
    he captained the side a lot last season anyway, because Sobers (C)
    & Thomas (VC) have been playing less games.

    Our other January signing Ben Hawkins is a player for the future he will go into the reserve squad, as will Maldonado
    for now because he can't play any first team games.

    We were knocked out of the League Cup early by Tottenham.
    This result in the final makes our exit a lot easier to take.

    Lost interest in my FM12 games and waiting for FM13, have been playing this game again.
    I've have just started season 32 and hopefully should complete that before FM13 is released.

    My England reign ends with World Cup success.

    I might take up another international job in the future but at the
    moment I just want to concentrate on Stopsley Utd.





    Transfers

    I have decided to cut down on our amount of foreign players, I want to
    make the club mainly English, well players from English speaking countries anyway.

    Big players to leave so far are Maldonado, Mahoney, Kotov & Carrasco. I also let some good
    English players leave, most notably Norwood as he wasn't getting much game time and Rudge.


    Cup Results

    Runners-Up twice to Man City and a very poor showing in the League Cup.
    Nevermind those though as we won the big one, our 9th CL success.


    League Results



    We went on a great run after the defeat to Man City, finishing the season
    with 14 wins and a draw in our last 15 games, Man City slipped up a bit and that gave us
    a chance at catching them, however City held their nerve in the last few games.

    Stopsley Legend Retires
    René Riemer hung up his boots after an amazing career at the club.
    Despite his stats for us he never won a call up for Germany.

    Last season I decided I wanted to make my squad/club more English so I am going to cut the number of foreign players and try
    to sign players from Britain and other English speaking countries, I still intend to have foreign players but will just limit the amount.

    I paid £8m for 18 year old Brazilian striker Geová, he will start in the reserve squad and will get some first team games in the cup.

    Transfers



    "All English signings apart from Mansilla, He will be good back up for CM, the English players are all
    young and have been signed as prospects for the future, 21 year Paul Beckwith was quite expensive
    but he will get time at CM and I'm hoping he will be a big part of our future as players like Paulista &
    Pearson are the wrong side of 30 and could possibly retire in the next 2/3 seasons."




    "Another player for the future, We have some great English strikers already and I hope Anicet will turn
    out to be another great, I also have my eye on a Croatian striker and plan to make another bid for him in the summer."

    Well I won't be taking the Brazil job, it's not through choice it's by mistake, when I loaded the game up again I forgot to apply lol and played 2 league games and now the job has been filled.

    I could have reloaded but I don't want to change the 2 results I have had, anyway I'm sure it will become available again soon with their record.

    “It was good until the final game of the month, gutted to lose to Man City.
    That defeat leaves us eight points behind but we have a couple of games in hand.
    We had twenty shots while they had just three, very annoying”

    “A busy month with nine games and it was mostly very good apart from one game.
    Bradford City shocked us again to complete a double but we are still in touching
    distance with the leaders and what a win against the mighty Tottenham.”

    “Four wins and a draw in the Premier League and we
    look set to defend our title with ten games to play.
    The point against Ipswich was well earned as we came back from
    being 3-1 down and nearly pulled off the win.
    Progress in the FA cup after a comfortable win against Leeds and
    in the Champions League we scored a late away goal that gives
    us the edge going into the second leg”

    Stopsley Utd Defend Title!]
    It took us a while to climb to the the top this time but once we got there we were in control.
    We even got enough of a cushion that allowed for some poor results not to effect us at the end.
    The cups are proving tougher than the league though and runners up in league cup was best we could do.

    "Not exactly well paid though, lol"







    "An unbeaten start which makes a change in recent years."






    "Well the unbeaten run soon came to an end with a shocking defeat to West Ham.
    Tottenham now challenging for title after fighting relegation last season."




    "We face Saint-Etienne in the first knockout round of the Champions League."
