End of Season 2032/33

Erik Bäckermann - Pretty good season, 33(5) games played, 19 goals and 10 assists. Bayern won the league. Signed a new contract with the club and wants to see out his career with Bayern. Just 2 games away from 1000 total career games.

Antoine Clemont - Not a season to remember with 34 games played, 1 goal and 4 assists. Man City could have been relegated, but finished 16th in the league. Contract is running out but he wants to commit his future to the club, so Man City probably aren't offering him one.

El Mantis - A fairly good season and most likely his last for PSG. He played 28 games with 7 goals and 5 assists. PSG won the league and were French Cup runners up.

Christopher Hatton - A solid season for Hatton with 39(9) games in total, scoring 1 and getting 18 assists. Juventus were Italian Super Cup runners up and won Serie A. Thinking about becoming a manager when he retires.

Junior - Good season again from Junior, scoring 4 goals and getting 17 assists in 44 games for Chelsea. Chelsea finished 2nd in the league and were Capital One Cup runners up.

Lawrence Lazewski - Still playing well with Spurs, scoring 20 goals in 38(7) games and getting 5 assists. However Spurs only finished in 11th place and were poor elsewhere.

Bambang Pinheiro - Not his best season, but still playing well. He got 10 goals and 10 assists in 42(1) games and Man Utd finished in 3rd place, won the Euro Super Cup, Community Shield and were Club World Cup 3rd place.

Relegated Players

El Ticuito - Not great, but lots of game time in his first season back in England. 39(1) games played with 5 assists. Liverpool finished 8th in the league and won the FA Cup.

Zachary Eldinho - Even at the age of 35 he's still getting over 30 goals, 36 this season in 46(1) games, with 11 assists and 10 PoMs. Chelsea finshed 2nd in the league and were Capital One Cup runners up. English Footballer of the Year and in PLayers' Team of the Year.

Gins - Pretty good season for Gins and Blackburn. He played 52 games, conceding 62 and keeping 14 clean sheets. Blackburn finished 4th in the league. Was named Golden Glove runner up.

Steven Kemp - A brilliant season for both Steven and Villa. Firstly he played 55(6) games for the club, with 18 assists and 13 PoMs. Villa finished 5th in the league, but to top the season off, Steven captained his side to Europa League glory. Named in Players' Team of the Year.

Aboubakari Mensah - A very good season with Southampton, scoring 3 goals and getting 14 assists in 38(2) games. He helped Southampton win the Premier League for the first time ever and they were Champions League runners up.

[RETIRING] Chris Small - Not a very good season and has decided to Retire next season. He played just 3(1) games with 2 assists as Villa finished 5th and won the Europa League.

[RETIRED] Lewis Walsh

So El Mantis deciding not to play another season. Erik will still have a full season left.

Both players have Staff attributes, so could you either pick if you'd like to become a manager or just leave it and see what happens?

Crazy to see a 35 y/o RB play 40 games for Liverpool! Probably only surviving into his mid thirties because of the high natural fitness and stamina attributes affording to him at the start. Hopefully El Ticuito can get another season under his belt at least, before moving to management (Hopefully)

Well, it mentioned previously that Backerman wants to pursue management, so let's just see what happens. Maybe Bayern will pick him up as backroom staff, maybe he'll end up down the German leagues.

Unfortunately not, it only seemed to happen in the English leagues.

I've been managing a FM14 save into 2041, and I gave my players a Testimonial when I was at Bayern, so the option's there, they're probably just too cheap to give up the gate receipts.

Will you be running another series after this one? Absolutely loving this

Thanks. Not for definite, but might have a think about it once it's done.

Finally got a club trophy!!!! Maybe staying at Villa wasn't a terrible choice.....I take that back actually. Over 1000 games and counting. Confused by the 'unhappy and wants to return to England part though' lol. Maybe he's getting abit stupid in his old age.

Villa also won a Capital One Cup which is in his achievements, but not sure if he was playing regularly then or not.

Oh screw you Antoine, Notts Forest? REALLY NOW?

(don't take it personally Charlesbeams, I'm talking to my player)

From what i've seen so far of the season, both Forest and Man City are in the bottom 10, so either way it might not be any different.

Fantastic news that Eldinho is interested in managing when he retires, could this mean just a year left of playing though?

Could be, we'll have to wait and see, but i'm expecting a few more to announce their retirements this season.

Not that great really, but could have been much worse. Relegated early and never really pushed on. I think going to Chelsea ruined him.

Will now be looking for his first job as a Director of Football.

England only went and failed to qualify for the World Cup, just one player is going, Christopher Hatton with Colombia. Everyone else has retired or their team isn't there.

5 players contracts are running out in a month.

Going to make the managers World Rep a bit higher, see if it helps.

End of Season 2033/34

Antoine Clemont - Moved to newly promoted Forest and helped them survive relegation, while his old side surprisingly got relegated. He played 40(2) games for Forest with 9 assists.

Christopher Hatton - Hardly got any game time in his last season with Juventus, he played just 2(15) games. Juventus won the league and were Italian Super Cup runners up. Is with the Colombia squad for what will most likely be his last World Cup.

Junior - Not looking good for Junior, with only 3 sub appearances all season. His contract is running out though so will either leave the club and retire, or maybe find a new club. Chelsea finished 3rd, won the FA Cup and Champions League.

Lawrence Lazewski - Not looking too good for Lawrence, who played 17(11) games for Spurs, scoring just 5 goals. Spurs finished 6th in the league. Is considering leaving to get some first team football and his contract is running out.

Bambang Pinheiro - Not getting as much game time anymore, just 20(4) games, scoring 4 goals and getting 3 assists. Man Utd finished 2nd in the League and were poor elsewhere.

Relegated Players

El Ticuito - Still playing quite a few games for Liverpool, 25(2) in total with 6 assists. Liverpool finished 7th in the league and won the Community Shield. Is wanted by a few clubs as his contract is running out.

Zachary Eldinho - His 14th season in a row scoring over 30 goals. He got 32 this season in 45(5) games for Chelsea, helping them finished 3rd in the league, win the FA Cup and Champions League. Broke Chelsea's fastest goal in 10 seconds against West Ham. Named in Players' Team of the Year and Champions League Dream Team.

Gins - Not a great season, conceding 95 goals and keeping 9 clean sheets in 59 games for Blackburn. Blackburn struggled and finished 15th in the league and were also FA Cup runners up.

Steven Kemp - Another full season for Steven, playing 51(1) games, scoring twice and getting 11 assists. Villa finished in 5th place, were Euro Super Cup runners up and made it to the Champions League semi-finals. Was named in Players' Team of the Year.

Aboubakari Mensah - A fantastic season for Southampton, just not for Mensah. He only got 3(1) games in total all season. Southampton however won the league again and Capital One Cup and were Community Shield and Champions League runners up. Contract is running out and wanted by Hull.

Erik Bäckermann - Nothing yet, hopefully something will come up soon.

Not posted staff attributes as they most likely won't change.

Going to be interesting not to see if Antoine Clemont can keep Forest up again, If Christopher Hatton can keep Blackburn from going down with Gins and where Junior, Aboubakari Mensah and Lawrence Lazewski all end up or if they all decide to retire.

A very good career overall, just a shame he was relegated so early. 213 Assists for a Right Back is pretty good too.

Includes MLS-All Stars.

Strange to see that El Ticuito went from Right foot to Right foot ONLY between the ages of 33 and 34..

Good career overall for a right back, shame he got relegated early as you said. Hopefully he can avoid relegation as a manager :) (or HoYD if he prefers)
