[FM21] The Wanderer

Recommended Posts

Two wins from our final three games


and a late goal by Frosinone was all that prevented us recording a perfect finish


Which saw us finish fifth, enough to qualify for the Europa League, if I end up still here next season

Time for the season review


Beginning with our three new arrivals, who unfortunately underwhelmed


We had a horrible run in March and April, which was the major reason we failed to make the top 4


There were some very good results though


Finances have improved, which is good news if I stay on for next season


This is our seasons best eleven, although no-one really shone


and finally, a couple of players picked up awards

Four points from the two games I took charge of in August


but dropping points away to Guingamp, after taking the lead, was disappointing


although we are top of the table, our nearest rivals do have a game in hand

There was one arrival, plus two departures, before the transfer window closed


Wesley Fofana adds quality at centre back. Defence is the only area of concern, and two of the board objectives are to sign high reputation players and to spend the original transfer budget. This signing ticks both boxes, although I'll be looking for wing backs in the next window, assuming they back me again

One match from perfect in a September in which we were without Kylian Mbappe and Ferran Torres for the Nantes, Anderlecht and Monaco games, and Danilo Bologna for the Monaco game. All should be available for our next match, after the international break


We were good enough to have beaten Monaco, but given the injuries, not a bad performance and result


which leaves us 4 points clear of Monaco at the top of Ligue 1

A perfect October, including winning both games of a Champions League double-header with FC Barcelona


and whilst there was nothing lucky about the home win


we were more than fortunate to win in Camp Nou. On another day, we'd have been well beaten


but I'm delighted with 32 points from a possible 36, and the 4 point lead at the top

One match from perfect in November


as Rennes took advantage of us picking up a red card to deny us a win with a late goal


but we have managed to extend our lead at the top to 8 points, almost halfway through the season

6 conceded is a great record

It's absolutely ridiculous, especially given that we're not playing defensive, or even counter, we're on positive or attacking at all times.

One match from perfect in February, almost assured progress in the Champions League, and through to the Coupe de France Final. You'd think I'd be delighted with that


but the defeat to AS Monaco means that, as we went into that game 15 points clear, instead of being 18 clear after it, defeat has reduced that to 12, and, for now at least, kept them in the title race

I did a better job of squad rotation this month, and we reaped the rewards. The only game we didn't win was the Champions League second leg, but a draw means we qualify easily, and we thrashed third placed Lyon as well


leaving us 17 points clear, although Monaco do have a game in hand

Again one match from perfect, and the defeat has cost us the chance to meet one of the board's objectives, reaching the Champions League Final. As that was mandatory, hopefully it won't cost my job


Maybe the fact we have completed a domestic double might be enough to save me?

Time to review the season


Beginning with the new arrivals


We finished the season by dropping only 3 points between February and May


racked up some impressive wins


but coming up short in the Champions League has been expensive


This was our best lineup, although everyone has contributed


There were too many awards to fit in one screenshot


and confirmation that we did the double. We'll be trying to go one better next season

A perfect month in November, despite the rotation policy continuing, and that sees us secure Champions League progress as group winners


and we're 4 points clear at the top, free to concentrate on the league until Champions League knockout rounds begin in February. We do have 1 group game left, but with the group won, it'll be that game, rather than the league games either side of it, that see us play a rotated side

In the transfer window, we made one signing, and there have been five departures since the last transfer update


Baptiste Husson is a goalkeeper, and replaces the departed Strakosha, who was almost 35 and declining rapidly

We only failed to win once in March, but that defeat saw us knocked out of the Coupe de France


but we were incredibly unlucky against Marseille


and we end the month 9 points clear, although Lyon do have a game in hand

Perfect in the league in May, but we crashed out of the Champions League after a shocking second leg performance


but obviously we secured the title, lifting the trophy after beating Nimes


and we end the season 15 points clear at the top

Time for the season review


Beginning with the three signings, who all excelled


Results were excellent all season, but to drop only 2 points between February and May is unbelievable


We were involved in some incredible games, not least a 9-0 win in which Weickert bagged 7


Finances haven't improved this season, but they are still fine


This is how we lined up this season, the only underwhelming performance was that of Piccolo, but he wasn't awful


There were plenty of awards, and records broken


and confirmation we won two trophies this season

Although the squad depth chart provides a much better view of where we are as a team


Ideally we could do with upgrading the backup options in both full back positions, but if Wijndal and Bologna play most matches, I can't see any other positions giving us too many problems
