Ropo Posted May 10, 2020 Share Posted May 10, 2020 (edited) Here is the next body of work in an enthralling series of Football Manager careers, following on from FM15's An Eastern Bloc Party, FM16's The Sack Race, and some other threads that aren't worth reading. 2019 FC Dallas (Major League Soccer) Soccer: it’s football, but not as you know it. One of my first emails received is a lengthy explanation of trading rules, drafts, salary caps, Monopoly money and waving... or waivers, who cares? I file it away for a rainy day, and then I am immediately forced to read it when I realise I am too scared to click anywhere. I waive (release) a Paraguayan striker who is filling a valuable roster spot because he doesn’t fit into my plans (he is crap). Instead I lean on an friendly agreement with Bayern Munich to borrow a German/Ghanaian forward, and start the season with him scoring regularly. After four games this sadly becomes irregular, and by the end of the year he has stopped shooting all together. With 12 goals he is still our top scorer by a fair margin, which is worrying. Our wingers do chip in with a fair few though and we qualify for a play-off spot at the end of the season; LAFC dispatch us in the semis. Unfortunately my decision to treat the US Open Cup as a chance to run the reserves out backfires when we win the thing via several penalty shoot-outs, and qualify for a place in next season’s North American Champions League. Yee-Haw! MLS: 4th (of 24) US Open Cup: Winners (drew 1-1 w/ San Jose Earthquakes, 5-4 on penalties) Edited May 12, 2020 by Ropo Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
