July & August Update
Summer Transfer Window Update
Im happy with my transfer dealings I feel we have a squad capable of staying up. I still need a right back, we have made a good start to season 4 points from 9
Nice - screenshots of your two big signings, both attributes and career, would be great! If its not too much to ask
they are posted on the previous page mate
Very much enjoying your career. Keep it up!
Looking over the history of the premier league since this save started the highest points total anyone has been relegated with is 38. so my target is to get to 40.
Lets hope you get to the magic 40 quick and you get more to push on
400 game mark,
Whilst at Rimini earlier in my save I had a Youth prospect who i made captain at 16 years of age,
Since then he has gone on to play in the champions league with Benfica.
Novelli @ Rimini
Novelli Career so far
Its nice to see a player who I thought at potential in the bottom division of Italy has made it to the top.
Some nice signings there.
I had a 20+ year career managing Bristol City on FM11, loved it!
Good luck for the season ahead
November and December update
Results have gone against us in this busy period and we have now slid down the table.
So as a result I have moved on a few players
and brought in a few to strengthen the team
I finally got a Right back that I've needed, Also brought in another Centre back which I broke the club record transfer for as Caulker needed a better partner and Centre midfielder Camucho was an experienced free signing and 2 Strikers as mine arent scoring enough.
Hopefully results will start to pick up again with the freshing of the squad
Looks like very good investment.
Still plenty of time left to dig yourself out the relegation zone. Its not like your well adrift either.
Doeseb has been a great signing so far update coming later
Transfers in the players
The right back i have needed, Massive potential
Young striker was top scorer in championship by january so i took a gamble he could do it at this level
Bristol Citys biggest transfer ever! Hardly played at liverpool but looks solid and I needed another centre back who was prem standard to partner Caulker
Had my scouts raving and turnt chelsea down for me, Hoping he can fire us to safety!
Further Transfer News
Sold another player
Bought him on a free in a summer and hasnt made the grade. Made a profit though
Brought two more in
My two backup keepers are nowhere near prem standard so I brought him in and started him every game since and hes keeping Bransecu out with fine performances
I needed a back up for alex chamberlain as he has played every game and needs a rest.
I like Albanesi and Doeseb .
As you can see Doeseb has started brilliantly with 7 goals in 5 games and is already my top scorer for the season. The new players have strengthen the squad, Vissing has been a rock in goal, Oliveria and Albansei have gone into the back 4 with Caulker and Muric and it seems tighter and Doeseb has been a star already I hope he keeps it up. Milesi and Kelly has both become squad players. Ive spent alot of money this season but on young players so I hope we stay up and the players progress so we dont need to spend much more
I see Leicester is gonna break the record for lowest points in EPL season.
looks that way, Forest arent doing much better
He looks a beast.
Great read so far, you've started off well in the Premier League
Two International Jobs Turnt down
Got too big of a relegation battle to focus on
Feb 2021 Review
As you can see Doeseb didnt score as much this month which resulted in 3 losses, Kelly and Nielsen popped up with 1 each but I dont seem to have another striker who scores a handful if Doeseb doesnt
Top Scorers so Far & their Apperances
Another 2 defeats but we are on 31 points, I think 9 points will secure our safety
You should survive comfortably mate!
Doeseb out for 3 weeks
Future transfer agreed for a striker to partner Doeseb next season. Made his england debut this year scored 3 in 4 internationals
Don't really rate him that much myself, I prefer more technical ability, even if its generally.
ENGLISH!ENGLISH! He must have foreign descent !
April 2021 Update
Safety is secured! Which was the aim, 4 games remain just gotta see if we can move any higher now for abit of money. Looking towards next season now. We Spent alot of money this season so not expecting much movement in the summer we need a striker and a back up centre back and back up right back and that will be business done unless we find a diamond. The striker is already tied up so happy with that
Well done on survival.
Really well done on pulling away from the drop zone, you made some really good signings there.
Hopefully you can kick on now next season.
January transfer signing Chris Milesi hasnt made the grade so I needed another Right midfielder to challenge Chamberlain so I swooped for Polish Right winger Leszek Sikora for £2million.
Trying to get all my transfers done nice and early. Movements made for two other players ill bring the news to you if confirmed.
Oscar Devereux Signs from West Ham United
Another Striker will be joining us in the summer
We should now have the strikeforce to score us the goals to move us up the league.
Devereux will join Doeseb, Nielsen, Kelly and Cheng.
A lot better signings.
May Results & Final League Table
What a great end to the season with 3 wins from 4 and by beating chelsea last game of the season we cost them the title and Arsenal won it by 2 points. 11th place finish aswell Wow we were in bottom 3 at midway!, Chuffed with this season, Full season review coming soon
Needed a 3rd choice Centre Back
Manager of the year award
3rd place for me sensational news
Another decent player coming.
Good season mate. You have some cracking players joining you to.
Transfers so far this summer
Nice to see you easily survive your first season in the Prem with Bristol City
Well done on a great season at Bristol City.
Is Cheng Chun Yin half Taiwanese?
I Know i said nothing else would be coming in but West brom paid the £5.5million needed to meet Sean Murray's Minimum Release fee so I needed a replacement and I tried to sign Bocias last summer but he rejected me so I tried again and he signed for £5million. I think he looks a better player and i made £500k from the two deals.
Great finish, and a great win against Man City. Good luck for next season.
Accepted my first international job, hope it goes ok
Nice little job. Good luck with the Aussies .
Congrats on taking over the Aussies, good job that one.
Some good signings there, good luck down under.
August 2021 Update
Great start to the season 4 games 4 wins and Cheng has started on fire.
Lets hope we can continue this way
Summer Transfer Window Closed
I made a post a while back about my 17year old captain from Rimini who was now playing champions league football at benfica, he was transfer listed so I swooped in for him and he stated he was joining because of me
We didnt need much, just about of quality, signed 2 strikers to give us a quality strike force, a Right midfielder to challenge Chamberlain, then the rest was about adding depth until Novelli became available then I added him too. I would love to get into europa or win carling cup
Bit of movement there, lets hope it works out
You paid how much for Cheng!!!!
It was alot BUT hes scored 5 in first 4 games
Another good month in the league, we let in a 89" goal against west ham which was a bit of a kick in the nuts but we are still unbeaten which if we are honest is way better than expected, knocked out by Man Utd in the cup (expected) And my 100th Bristol City game ended with 3 points. First Venture into international management 3 games 3 losses but all against bigger countries in the world of football. Already qualified for the world cup so just got to wait for that to come around.

Going well to celebrate the milestone.
Pretty harsh defeats internationally, would have though you'd have got more against Denmark especially being at home.
Just noticed i forgot to add scorers for sept and oct so here they are
Nice start to the season.
Stood down because i wasnt getting any results and I wasnt enjoying it, plus was taking too much attention away from city
That's what usually happenes to me when I have two jobs. Managing a club is way more interesting.
Don't blame you for standing down, I don't find it easy to enjoy international management at all.
It can drag things on a little bit.
November & December 2021 Update
Starting to have dreams about Europe?
Europa maybe not champions league
Both still in Europe
You can still do CL qualification.
Last january I signed Dennis Vissing as back up keeper for 975k, He ended up playing most of the games for the rest of the season but this season hes second choice again so when Reggina came in with a £8.5m bid I was happy to let him go, a massive profit of just over 7.5m
I quickly swooped for experienced back up goalkeeper for £900k
Fantastic season so far with some great results!
Good deal on Vissing.
You'll be glad he's 35, his name certainly is a mouth full. (and no, that's not what she said)
Keep it up. Champions League football is possible!
January 2022 Update
Transfer Window Update
Media Reports suggested Juventus were about to make a £32m bid for Bransecu so when i saw Butland was transfer listed I swooped for him fast, but the bid never came so I have 2 quality keepers. two loan signings are full back cover and the Signing of Sloth is for the future hes a 16 year old Dm
Matthews asked for contract termination so i agreed that, Vissing was a great deal for the club we got two replacements for cheaper, Morrice and Gueye have struggled to break into 1st team so iv let them go out on loan and da silva had 6 months left on his deal and was nowhere near 1st team so i sold him.
Another strong month its getting mental now We are overachieving so much
Even if we slip up and finish 10th its been a great season
Still close but you've had an amazing first half of the season.
yeah, 3 defeats and im 9th
Doing great with city, hopefully you can keep up the good form.
fingers crossed mate, going for the fa cup too
Deal tied up for summer
Reinforce our central defence, Albanesi and Caulker are my main two but beyond that I have nothing so Marcao will make us stronger
Feb 2022 Update
Just ticking along keeping up the pace, starting to dream of champions league football and a return to European competition for me for the first time in 4 years
Well done challenging at the top, a huge difference from your earlier years. Marcao looks class.
