Welcome to the FMCU Awards!

*Minute Waltz Plays*

Thank you, thank you! My name is deltablue and as the minute waltz fades away it's my great pleasure to welcome all of these fabulous, exciting, original and talented players of this tremendous game. We come today from my bedroom where we have a delightful audience ready to cheer us on our way.

Unfortunately due to the current situation it's not possible to all be together with our usual reporter and co-host. We've had issues with our co-hosts anyway due to a range of shenanigans in previous years making it hard to get anyone to agree to come. Thankfully I happen to have a lovely assistant with me...

Thank you deltablue. Well the only place to start is with Makoto Nakamura. He has won 5 awards in both of the last 2 years so can he keep his run going. His old rival ManUtd1 will surely have something to say about that, and so will the likes of Jimbokav1971 and PH71. Last year's newcomers (and this years in fact) will also hope to make more of an impact.

And the winner is... Makoto Nakamura! Finally he gets on the scoreboard as it were, though oddly enough he didn't win this in either of his dominant years.

So to the 'Copying and Pasting lots of long and complicated thread names' award, aka 'Best Thread Name'. I'm really not sure everyone who voted in this category quite got the right idea, but here goes...

KaranSinghs’s 1860 things I hate about you, Earnie is God's Bringing her home, Deisler26's FM21 Placeholder Post/ #DanskeDanske, we're falling apart to half-time: The FMCU Group Save! (different names but I counted it as the same thread), Noikeee's I'm not your Bebri, Makoto Nakamura's I used to be a footballer like you, then I took a foot to the g-Royn, Olivier L’s Island of France - Une Ambition Capitale ! DoF challenge, Northernpilgrim’s Last Tango in Plymouth, Anagain’s Niko Rikič, our man in Slovenia: Can he Koper?, ManUtd1's The Nearly Men Vol IV: I Am Not A Demon. I Am A Lizard. A Shark. A Heat-Seeking Panther. I Want To Be Bob Denver On Acid Playing The Accordion and of course Makoto Nakamura's Zeman, Zemyth & Zelegend - Zdeněk takes on Europe.

WTF??? Thank you, whichever madman voted for THIS YEAR'S thread..

@deltablue does this vote knock the thread out of contention for FM21?

Unfortunately I think according to the rules it does if it wins. Anyway your timing is impeccable...

48797477901_57ccc8ce41_c.jpg.a1789b83372507646ab836e6abc3044d.jpg

And the winner is.... FM21 Placeholder Post!

It's even madder than that. I thought it was a great idea when someone voted for it, then the very last set of votes made it one of 4 threads on 2 votes and since I wasn't actually voting this year (and I could still judge thread names) I decided that was a rather unsatisfactory situation and cast a tiebreaker vote. It makes a change from the usual puns so congratulations on winning through the 'ironic' vote. :D

Oh and two of the threads on 2 votes were from Makoto, who paid the price (maybe not for the first time) for all his threads by having his vote split. ManUtd's Nearly Men was unsurprisingly the other one.

Recency bias!

And the winner is... Jimbovav1971 with Irchester Utd. Tier 10. England. Home. Youth Only, in what was probably the most comfortable win of the night.

Oh brill. Thanks very much. :cool:

Youth Only is getting more and more popular each year and it's brilliant that so many people are now playing what used to be such a tiny niche style. :applause:

Sorry I've been inactive for a few weeks. Thank you for the nominations so far, and the best poster award, I seriously wasn't expecting that!

It's been an awful FM year for me with me thinking that, honestly, none of my careers have been very good. :lol: FM20 is also only the second FM since I started playing to get under 2,000 hours so something must be wrong!

OK then. Well the nominees are... Cheez3y, Lodi Lemmer, Mkeredbeard and Rumple43.

And the winner is... Rumple43!

Congratulations @Rumple43 :applause:

I think it can be quite hard to get going in here, but as soon as you have even a couple of people who like your style then it's plain sailing after that. :thup:

And the joint winners (with just 2 votes each) are... Lens and Volta Redonda! Congratulations Smp20 and  _Ben_!

Congratulations to both @smp20& @_Ben_ Pretty surprised to have been nominated here. Don't think my Irchester side are anywhere near good enough to compete with the likes of these 2. :thup:

How many times has he won this now? Maybe we should name it after him next year? :lol:

Congratulations @Makoto NakamuraI know you found it a bit of a slog at times this year, but you still came up with some phenomenal saves. Thank you. :applause:

And the winner is: ManUtd1 with The Nearly Men Vol IV. Again an unsurprisingly comfortable winner I'm sure you agree.

@ManUtd1is the FMCU equivalent of Steven King. (You've got to be at least a little screwed up to write that stuff). :lol: This years Fraud thread was as good as ever. :applause:

Actually he hadn't won it before, even when he was winning almost everything else :D I looked up the past threads to prepare for this one with you winning last time and ManUtd1 before that.
