I feel like @Paddersdeserves his own section in the Hall of Fame for the longevity of this save even if he doesn't get that champions league win before FM21 comes out. 

Thought I had it last night!

So gutted

I've got the players now to do it but won't last long as they are mid 20's (expect my goal keeper who isn't good enough)

So need to win it over the next 3-5 years

Only have less than two weeks to do it before FM21!!

What do you do in the transfer window when one of your players gets sold and you can't protest with the board?

I have all my best players set to reject all transfers. 

I never lose a player now due to the board selling them (always £800m - £1.1bn in the bank)

May have lost a couple earlier on but not many.

So Ellis and Tom, @Padders. Bit of an age difference between them, I'd wager? Also, aren't you a bit old to be a new dad again with your almost 300 year old self?

Yeah I am 291 years old!

Yes must be some age gap between them

Just had a look

Ellis was born in 2215

Tom in 2255 so 40 years

I looked into my players determination dropping and the solution I found was to get as many good personalities into the squad as possible.

Basically it's thought that squad personalities especially with young players always move towards the average for the squad.

I'm going to sign every good personality intake for like the next few years and see if it then drags the squad personalities up. Whilst selling/releasing all the bad personalities that aren't my very best players.

@Padders You do realise that there's an official Guinness World Record for the longest save, and it's 333 years.

https://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/397246-longest-single-game-of-football-manager#:~:text=The longest single game of Football Manager is,Interactive%2C 2016)%2C as confirmed on 25 September 2019.

I'm sure they have rules for what constitutes a continuous save. Obviously there are people who have just left their computer to holiday through hundreds of years, but I hope that you will at least make it to 334. 

 

Or complete the challenge. I mean, that's what we're all hoping for.

Season Review 2272/73

Another disappointing season

Had a mini breakdown in the middle of the season losing 5 games in a row!

Went unbeaten with last 14 games but wasn't enough to finish in top 4

2028

League - Fixtures 1 | Fixtures 2 | Table - 3rd title in a row.  We are getting dominant

Cup - Fixtures - won again

Europa League (2027/28) - Fixtures - as expected Lyon were too much for us in the knockout rounds.

Champions League (2028/29) - Fixtures | Table - started back down in the 2nd qualifying round thanks to all other Norwegian teams being appalling in Europe.  Anyway we first overcame Astana of Kazakhstan.  Next up was Lech Poznan where after a draw away a good home win meant another game against Shaktar for a place in the group stages.  Surprisingly we scraped a 1-0 win in Ukraine and a 1-1 draw secured our first appearance in the group stages.  There we had a very tough draw against Man City, Lazio and PSG.  Lost our first 3 games but a surprise 1-0 home win against PSG and a 4-4 home draw to Man City at least gave us pride and £3m in prize money.

Finances - boosted by European money.  Our new stadium is coming.

Transfers - a handful of small transfers out of surplus players.

Key players

Henrik Ellingsen YP26a - top centre half, capped by Norway and a non playing substitute at Euro 2028

Leif Otto Borhaug YP24e - still brilliant, and doesn't want to leave thankfully.

Espen Sanden YP21f - great at centre back too

Yang Junkui YP23b - solid again.  Called into the Norway squad but yet to be capped.

Thomas Haugland YP22b - pretty prolific too

Espen Baras YP25e - first choice CM

Ronny Pettersen YP25a - now first choice right back

Youth Update

Won everything domestically again.

Intake: pretty solid

1. Martin Enge YP28a - beginning | season end - not quite developed as hoped

2. Lee Dyer YP28b - beginning | season end - Welsh wing back, being converted into a right winger

3. Steinar Alternes YP28c -   beginning   | season end - converted him into a left back as that's our problem position

4. Gentian Shehi YP28d -  beginning | season end - right winger, capped at Kosovan youth level

5. Ruben Johnsen YP28e - beginning | season end - promising right back  striker (oops!)

6. Espen Haraldsen YP28f  season end - didn't tag earlier, later on scored the only goal to beat PSG, so he had a good season

2040/2041

LaLiga – 5th

Fixtures (1) -- Fixtures (2)Fixtures (3) -- Stats -- Awards -- Season Review -- Transfer -- Overall Best XI -- Key Player -- Hot Prospect -- Finances

League: An interesting start to the year with 1 point and 13 goals conceded in our first 3 games it was quickly obvious that we weren’t going to have a better season defensively this season. Overall in the first half of the season our form wasn’t actually that bad just some high scoring draws along with heavy defeats. A major injury midway through the season forced us into a formation change that was paid less attention to defense, 4 our of the first 7 games saw the games with 9 or more goals in them. Our form was picking up quite well however and towards the end of the season we did actually have an outside shot of a top 4 finish but a loss and a couple draws at the end of the season saw us have to settle for a 5th place finish.

Cup: We recorded our record victory in the first round (15-0) and saw off opposition to reach the 5th round where we lost to Real Madrid.

Europa League: A very favourable group stage draw for us this season with us winning 5 and drawing the other against Red Star saw us straight into the 2nd knockout round. Unfortunately, a handy 5-2 first leg victory ultimately saw Napoli through in our tie.  

Squad: No real change here though did try and slot Martin Djidda 20a into the defense to try and at least get him progressing to hopefully improve our defensive woes.

Club Infrastructure: The youth facilities had downgraded so we upgraded them again.

Players of the year

Jose Bonilla 10a: An ever consistent performer, his best league assists record with 20 with 18 goals added for good measure.

Yan Luis Rubio 17a: Quickly becoming our best player, he managed 24 league goals and 12 assists which is a good return, he’s still only 20 as well so hopefully will lead us to silverware in the future.  

Nauzet Gutierrez 13c: No real surprise it is a clean sweep of our attacking players, another player with 24 league goals this term. ‘only’ 10 assists for him though but all our attackers had a great season.

Youth Intake

The straw that broke the camels back for our HOYD, a couple of ok ish prospects, but a replaced HOYD.

2c20cc0d259ddb6fbe45163561c4fc13.tif

Franciszek Spalek 21a: He has ok attributes for his role, but is lacking a lot all round, maybe he’ll be a decent squad player at least.

Angel 21b: A long way off being a first team player but does have some potential he might fulfil.

Overview/Looking Ahead

I don’t really know what to expect going forward, we’ve so few defensive players coming through the youth that we really just need to keep up trying to outscore our opponents, 80 league goals conceded is hardly a sustainable model though.

The story so far

Knocked out in group stages! GUTTED

Had to beat Real Madrid after losing in the 93rd minute Anderlect the game before!

Real had man sent off and as usual battered them but couldn't score

As you can see, right in the middle of an awful run of form with 2 wins in 10

Quick Season Review 2048/49

Another good season for us. A fantastic March and April saw us top the table and with one match left to play we were 1 point ahead of Man United. they had a home game against Palace, we were away to Burnley. Bottom of the table Burnley. Only 9 points all season, on a 17 match losing run Burnley. We were on a 5 match winning run, we're surely going to be Champions for the second season running!

And we drew, 1-1. We weren't even FM'd either, we just bottled it! Really frustrating

2098758242_49leaguettable.JPG.a959be482d97c58201ecad200bdbaf78.JPG

 

The Champions League is the one we need though! we breezed through the group stage, got a nosebleed in the 1st knockout round and got beaten easily. really disappointing.

49championsleague.JPG.dd32cabefd36f01adbca8c4fa0528083.JPG

 

Youth intake was not good. 5th year in a row now.... after this team there's nobody waiting to take over from them. I have aboyt 5 seasons left i think

Season Review 2274/75

Another poor and disappointing season!

Knocked out of Champions League as above

Finished a poor 6th in Premier League

And yet another poor intake. That's EIGHT in a row

I now have 4 first team players over 30. My 3 best players are mid to late 20's

Only one play under 20 who is good enough

Got 2-3 years to win Champions League

I have to qualify next season!

Season Summary 2031 - 2032

Domestic Double and CL semi finals

 

Only a short update from me. Objectively we had a really good season, winning the Bundesliga and the Cup (penalties against Bayern). But once again we had a terrible run of form around April, affecting us both in the Bundesliga and the Champions League. We should have won the Bundesliga comfortably, but instead we made it really tough, inviting Dortmund back in it. Luckily we pulled through. 

We made it all the way to the semi finals, but we were extremely lucky to advance against Chelsea in the quarter finals. Man City beat us 6-4 over two games in the semi finals, but they should have won with 5 goals. Frustrating! 

Getting a bit tired of this ME to be honest...

2041/2042

LaLiga – 4th

Fixtures (1) -- Fixtures (2)Fixtures (3) -- Stats -- Awards -- Season Review -- Transfer -- Overall Best XI -- Key Player -- Hot Prospect -- Finances

League: An overall good start to the season winning 5 of our first 6 games though those wins were broken up with a 7-1 defeat against FC Barcelona. Our form was largely the same as it has been in the previous few seasons but a fairly big difference, at least early doors, was that we were scoring less but also conceding less especially compared to the season prior. We did have a big opportunity for a 4th spot finish in spite of minimal improvement as holders Atletico Madrid were having a poor season and were failing to capitalise on the gameweeks in which we dropped points. That ultimately meant our victory on the final day of the season gave us our first Champions League qualification.

Cup: Our cup run this season was favourable with us only drawing a top flight team in the 3rd round with us having to beat 2nd tier Elche to reach the Semi-Final. We lost 2-0, a very disappointing result.

Europa League: A second season of a very easy group for us to traverse but one which e were unable to get a perfect record as we drew at home to Austria Wien. In our 3 previous Europa League campaigns we’ve bowed out at the 2nd knockout stage, and yet again this was our fate as Saint Etienne beat us in both legs.

Squad: I don’t really understand why there was such a change in both defense and attack this season as there was no personnel or tactic change. Gutierrez 13c surpassed 200 goals for the club this season with Acaymo 9c passing 100 league clean sheets.

Players of the year

Nauzet Gutierrez 13c: He got off to a very slow start this season but 4 goals in the cup first round acted as a catalyst for him to find himself at a good total in the league and he’s now considered an elite striker.

Daniel Abal 13d: Ever consistent for us and managed nearly 2 more key passes per game than anyone else on the team. 

Jose Bonilla 10a: By his own standards an underwhelming year for Bonilla in which he still contributed 17 goals and 20 assists in all competitions.

Youth Intake

New HOYD this season and for me a much better intake with a few players in positions that we desperately needed.

e71ac1b951e10475556c7bd7204faf64.tif

Rayco Toste 22a: Whilst he does need to improve a bit technically and mentally. he looks like he could be a first choice centre back for us in the future.

Asdrubal 22b: Continues the tradition of high potential strikers through the intake with awful finishing. I’ve seen others show dramatic increases so am not writing him off at all.

Guillaume Gillet 22c: The player I’m most happy with of the intake as he’s pretty much the first high potential goalkeeper we’ve had since Acaymo 9c so a good 13 years in coming and timed well as Acaymo is nearing the end of his career. His personality is troublesome however.

Moises Davila 22d: Another striking option again not fantastic finishing and his acceleration is not the best but does look to have decent attributes in other areas.

Overview/Looking Ahead

Whilst we have qualified for the Champions League, I don’t see us doing anything of note in it so will probably use Gillet in the competition to try and fast track his progression. In the league I probably expect a worse position so mainly aiming for Europa League qualification.

The story so far
