[FM21] The Wanderer


Recommended Posts

September saw my first matches in charge of England. We begin in the Nations League with home games against Belgium and Croatia. This is the squad

Four wins out of five in September

616591134_Sep2050.PNG.e077aff89ecb4432e57a75f89fdd1c7b.PNG

and we were woeful against Southampton

1237806080_Soua2050.PNG.f1f6db8e4516881a641fcdcaed1bea93.PNG

Only two league games in the month, but the victory over Chelsea means we avoid ending it in the bottom 3, with Chelsea ending the month there instead

1768113702_Sep2050table.PNG.e46d09391cb85767833c0a8daede4ff2.PNG

Contrast that with our Europa League form, where we're top of the table and looking good

We won in Serbia

744352615_Sera2050.PNG.927c59200dda63c985e7229aea6a00de.PNG

but we could only manage a goalless draw in Belgium

1273790375_Bela2050.PNG.359fde578d40a7a62158c16eb3925bb2.PNG

which left the table looking like this, with a trip to Croatia and a home game with Serbia to finish the group

One match from perfect again in October, and no complaints about the defeat to Portsmouth

680595376_Oct2050.PNG.0c64b791cd456fe08d28cdc09b3d2c9c.PNG

which lifts us to mid-table, within striking distance of the Europa League spots. We need a hell of a run to win the league from here though

94961509_Oct2050table.PNG.069fc398cba82525ac5eac927d06f021.PNG

We are top of our Europa League group though, and almost qualified now

November started well, but we end with 2 successive defeats

831094313_Nov2050.PNG.e34bc3689b57e507c01e8a1fb21843e1.PNG

leaving us way off the pace in the Premier League

1078950377_Nov2050table.PNG.cb9c23f50a21d658dda5ae1cc25b601e.PNG

but already guaranteed to win our Europa League group. We've scored more in 5 Europa League games than in 14 Premier League matches

Read through this entire thing yesterday (thank you, rainy day). Great work.

Not gonna lie though, when you said you want to win trophies and multiple Champions League's and then went to Tottenham, i laughed my ass off :D

They had won 2 Premier League titles and two Champions Leagues in the four years before my arrival, so it wasn't as far fetched as it might sound. I'm finding that I'm at the point now where weird things are starting to happen, which might be because of the length of the save. Southampton have won the Champions League and Europa League in the last three seasons. Ukraine won the World Cup in 2042. The top 7 in the Premier League includes Southampton, Burnley, Norwich, West Brom and Portsmouth. Not sure what's going on with my Man City side though. We're struggling in the Premier League, but blowing teams away in the Europa League.

An unbeaten, but disappointing December

1849255150_Dec2050.PNG.ddfc2c03a3f080b2dc8789808f073f40.PNG

We were slightly fortunate to draw with West Brom, but should have beaten Norwich

675600206_Norh2050.PNG.0a25f978c9d6cb4b364a641aced4dfd9.PNG

and that leaves us still outside the European places

January can at best be described as 'mixed'

1815841306_Jan2051.PNG.9a86011ec7f5c65c535b66a9aa9797f5.PNG

We were very unlucky to lose to Crystal Palace

643798902_CPa2051.PNG.2df16d0bd2c8ed3e5e726838d1533035.PNG

and should have beaten Southampton

995382617_Souh2051.PNG.f72cb90036631fe2a82dd630be661dda.PNG

We remain outside the European places, and with my contract expiring in the summer, it looks like I might not be Man City boss much longer

An unbeaten February

54286332_Feb2051.PNG.c0f520785261a1c6af33414585f2ef2f.PNG

which included a Carabao Cup success

208992451_CarabaoCup2051.PNG.62f23d0e3145c94cfc471a2f36db0531.PNG

Despite the upturn in form, we drop to 9th, but have games in hand on those above and around us

A horrible March, which saw us knocked out of the FA Cup, and suffering in the league

1596918813_Mar2051.PNG.aac109f62851e602a9d8927a6d8d3306.PNG

leaving us 9th, and making it imperative we win the Europa League, if I survive the season

Qualification for the Euros began with a comfortable away win over Georgia

1780390523_GeovEng2051.PNG.e12ac4dec48f3968e006707010c5bd3a.PNG

Next up was a win against Slovenia at Wembley

411494993_EngvSlo2051.PNG.ebd6d284b69701633a856c61c6e49deb.PNG

and whilst I'd obviously like to have beaten Slovenia more comfortably, it's difficult to be unhappy with two wins and two clean sheets to begin our Euros campaign, which leaves us top of the table

Not a great April, and we deservedly lost 2 winnable games  against Newcastle and Charlton

1378712837_Apr2051.PNG.253d2ddd846dd22696e6af4ade23416a.PNG

We are 8th in the league, 3 points off the top 4, with a game in hand. It's going to be tough, but we aren't out of the top 4 race just yet

Disappointing end to the season to say the least

1608158454_May2051.PNG.65765953f81efdb147e9b9a49265ac93.PNG

but we should have got more against Burnley

711639046_Burnh2051.PNG.53028d74e76ded3b6d21f174b512ae8f.PNG

We qualify for the Europa League. A win over Burnley would have seen us make the Champions League

Season review time

429774376_Review51.1.PNG.7572a8d5814f124b8174d9c92b0fc0cf.PNG

Walter Colombo was the best of our new signings

898004283_Review51.2.PNG.2dfe63526b0768b0942bc0979ed06a7a.PNG

Not a great end to the season, but we met the board expectations

1670307064_Review51.3.PNG.f777903b33a5c08336e3a17f5a1ceacf.PNG

We were better in the cups than the league

619490433_Review51.4.PNG.f6408aedbefd1506fb3c5b3d8aa2af5c.PNG

Finances aren't great, and have worsened

1670127168_Review51.5.PNG.21e49c528d6b838c9733eb122309e2d2.PNG

This was our team of the season

2065125856_Review51.6.PNG.e3a9e32c15fe7da38564bbf0b40e8e85.PNG

No Premier League award wins this season

1247044445_Review51.7.PNG.fb1ceade6dd0bedc6caee783b0c1e407.PNG

and that's it, another season done. My contract is up in a month, so my future should be resolved soon

Three signings, eight departures, ahead of the start of the season

Limouri is a centre back

Fabio is a young goalkeeper

England are in Euros Qualifying action in September. Here's the squad for the games against Northern Ireland in Belfast and Greece at Wembley

We won comfortably in Belfast

1104736935_NIvEng2051.PNG.aca6a58405951032e5454365674422c5.PNG

and thrashed Greece at Wembley

1760115642_EngvGre2051.PNG.6994e69db44ada160b4be426b0610a54.PNG

Top of the group, four points clear, with a game in hand, is a great place to be

We absolutely smashed Georgia

559183569_EngvGeo2051.PNG.518d07cd38ad0af5c3f9b9ba575b5196.PNG

but only edged out Slovenia, despite massively dominating the game

413071817_SlovEng2051.PNG.5ffcf916da7bc4c6e03d6a7c4eb2e4f0.PNG

That leaves the table like this, and we're already qualified for next year's Euros

I forgot to do a September Arsenal update, so here are September and Octoober's results. Very good at home, less so away

225954486_Oct2051.PNG.44b0e1bc84a534d2e7e892224085c6d0.PNG

Leaving us third in the Premier League, with Manchester United maintaining their perfect start to open a formidable gap at the top. Southampton are serious challengers again

1628855378_Oct2051table.PNG.b4ff58d46de92acc8f47d4959113a4cf.PNG

Home games against Real Madrid and Dortmund next month means that despite winning only once so far, Champions League progress is in our own hands

England returned to qualifiers action in November, we face Northern Ireland at home, and away to Greece. There are several players missing through injury, so this is the squad

Not a great November

1836032924_Nov2051.PNG.827faba24e6f314c3399a14ad2999451.PNG

but we should have beaten West Ham

797249022_WHUa2051.PNG.aad4701781c8ad5287ab0718d5bb65e1.PNG

and Dortmund

997491421_Dorth2051.PNG.f4929801e994954bb61207ac63c94684.PNG

which means we're still 9 points behind Man Utd, despite beating them

2118534375_Nov2051table.PNG.80e4b5f83e3bd1f67687fd822c15e472.PNG

Champions League qualification is out of our hands. We face a trip to Salzburg. If we win, we'll qualify if Real Madrid beat Dortmund as well

Not a fantastic December

924339962_Dec2051.PNG.356f961de6ab3d4ca401724491993710.PNG

We were lucky to draw with Chelsea, and deserved defeat to Southampton, but we deserved more against Norwich

1975766050_Nora2051.PNG.d97a8fd451050cac590d21278f7bba71.PNG

which leaves us 4th

1708561521_Dec2051table.PNG.481b47452fbb7eb0c471928d55889e24.PNG

but we got what we needed to qualify in the Champions League

January wasn't terrible, but wasn't ideal either

736478065_Jan2052.PNG.625fb5ec22fe267363ef4e0ce6bcc3b0.PNG

We were unfortunate against Derby, who had 3 shots all game, and scored them all

1927319633_Dera2052.PNG.5f4cd60a760298621558cf9fb38d6a97.PNG

We should have won the Premier League game at Charlton

1940310215_Chara2052.PNG.6d7d64be1c2d1540f104d12ebd84b541.PNG

and we had the better of a bonkers 4-4 draw in the Carabao Cup

1517468032_Charla2052.PNG.8e9f50608c1f7089ae0235d98f511b63.PNG

We end January third in the league, 15 points off the lead, and trailing in Southampton's wake too

One match from perfect in the Premier League in April, and a narrow Champions League defeat with an away goal gives us a chance against Bayern

352509610_Apr2052.PNG.5d5dc038fe4ffc8e2a387824e5c05a9a.PNG

We're assured a top 4 spot, and can still catch Southampton, although the title is Man Utd's now

A poor month in May, and both defeats thoroughly deserved. A disappointing way to end my club management career

1165835083_May2052.PNG.1951084468a54c7f80509c9c5ce59f0a.PNG

Frustratingly, we finish third, 1 point behind Southampton, who we beat in my final match as Arsenal boss (I'll be stepping down straight after the season review comes through)

Time for the final season review of my club managerial career

1848712242_Review52.1.PNG.0d9b271e5704c4655a9d037074edc63b.PNG

Three new signings, two of which worked very well, one much less so

641086755_Review52.2.PNG.f763300bf3c8c5a122083c1e526163e9.PNG

A frustrating end to a frustrating, but not trophyless, final season

1724373933_Review52.3.PNG.757de5f08b5ed29f77eb5b3edaf1a22f.PNG

We did score plenty of goals

606732501_Review52.4.PNG.c8f3dec32cffafe202d3d997abbe3e74.PNG

and finances improved

1622297862_Review52.5.PNG.208d57905cf54edfc90aff746229df06.PNG

This was our team of the season, Alex McMillan the star of the show

1163983662_Review52.6.PNG.69b9833614285991c578943fbb529b04.PNG

He walked off with two Footballer of the Year awards, but missed out on the Premier League Golden Boot by a single goal

1895132374_Review52.7.PNG.138cbe647216a0654aa51b81c91f0aff.PNG
