First of all I'd just like to give a pretty brief background of me as a Football Manager player. I am terrible, I mean, it's as simple as that. I have been playing and loving the game for years now but I have been sacked so many times it's unreal. I genuinely believe that I have been sacked more times than I have won trophies on the game. I have never really understood why things haven't worked, I always try play beautiful football, perhaps that could be one of the reasons I have been unsuccessful all these years but if I'm being straight I just don't know what I'm doing wrong and that's always a problem.
Now I decided to make this thread because I have noticed a few people on here can struggle with the game at times, I know there's many of you who have incredible amounts of success with your teams and I must admit I envy you guys! But as I said, there are also a few guys on here that simply don't seem to enjoy the same levels of success as others and I am one of those guys, I just want to show you the season I have just had with Swansea City to show that ANYONE can have success on this game if you keep plugging away at it. One thing that almost put me off making this thread was the feeling that I was showing off, maybe a little part of me is showing off but I just hope that it can inspire some of you who are having no success whatsoever to keep playing the game and hopefully you can enjoy a similar season to the one I just had, it was without a doubt the best season I have ever had on the game... Not that there was much competition in all honesty.
I don't know whether it was simply that Swansea City's style of play suited my tactical philosophy or what but it all just seemed to come together perfectly. I never once strayed away from my 4-5-1 formation, control strategy or fluid philosophy. I was expecting the come unstuck against some of the big teams but I stuck with the same style of football and was able to get some fantastic results, results that I have never had before and never expected to have this season. Yes, we did get absolutely spanked 5-1 at Old Trafford but that was bound to happen sooner or later and I could hardly argue given the fact we were almost in 4th position at the time.
