[FMT21] Manchester United - Back to the Top


Recommended Posts

Aims

Do as well as possible, winning as many league titles as possible, doing it the best way - with vibrant attacking football.

Develop youth players and give chances

Requirements

Each Transfer Window, we're allowed to use a maximum of 50% of our current budget on a single player at max - if we have a 120m budget, we can use a maximum of 60m on a single player.

Sell Deadwood players (if you don't perform, you're out)

 

I will update this thread every 3 months ingame, with an additional End of Season Update, Transfers Update and Youth Intake and Preview Updates.

At the end of the 3 month period, we're 3rd, with Martial topscoring.

image.png.ecce89979df13d8ea3cbb0e07e293c8a.png

Our board is probably extremely ambitious, but they're happy. 

image.thumb.png.c81f068fe44eca2095c73f1bd943041c.png

Martial and Bruno respectively finished 1st and 3rd in the top 3 Premier Division players of the month.

At the end of this 3 month period, we have several topscoring players in Player Stats, and we're second. You may have also noticed that late on into the 3 month period, we signed Ajer.

image.thumb.png.45b99731a2aa615287f9521334f1c371.png

Also, Telles and Wan-Bissaka finished in the top 3 best players of the month in December.

image.thumb.png.fdff8cae9288eb84c26cd4336963cfba.png

Oh, and I won 2 Manager of the Month awards in a row.

image.thumb.png.47299e314ddbde14174e8d9723ff2842.png

The board is also even more happy than they were last time.

Transfer Update

In

image.png.92b49063553964e33f02ea498acae55e.png

Only two signings, with Diallo coming in as a pre-arranged transfer, and doesn't look immediately worth the 23m. Then, I got in Ajer, who will give us stability in defence, and midfield.

Out

image.png.6c7d2c2d50bb3efdea29600ab45b9919.png

Jones and Galbraith left the club on loan, and Romero and Rojo left on transfer offers of £0 with us paying them nothing, to Wuhan and Crystal Palace respectively. This freed up the budget a little bit, giving us room for more signings next window.

Our new current budget is £34m, with £17m available for any single player, and a wage budget of 3.6m p/w, with us going down to spend 3.3m p/w after the season concludes.

image.thumb.png.d3fad065e04645bc983ee2bd36b240aa.png

With a particularly good run of form in the last few months, especially between the 2nd of Feb, and the 20th of March, where we were completely unbeaten for 11 games.

image.thumb.png.d07ee55587fc9f8515c68a904fc166b5.png

These were our awards for the 3 month period, with me getting 2 manager of the month awards out of the 3 months, and 4 in total.

 

Next Season Budgets

image.png.2d28d581e26d49014d3b90d33dc1b167.png

This is a really huge budget for us, with a maximum (currently) of 82m spendable on any one player, a bump up from our initial 20m spendable on any one player this season (we had a 40m budget)

image.thumb.png.e6f4bca91ca2244d60e37fcb0835d5a0.png

We finished the season, our first season in charge, top of the league with 30 wins, 4 ties and 4 losses, and a GD of 70. To keep this title challenge going next season, I will be making a fair bit of usage of our high budget.

 

End of Season Awards

image.png.dc1702cad9bfabc438ab421bda9b2251.png

In our first season, we won the Premier Division and the Carabao Cup.

A great season for us, with our team getting several awards for our achievements.

 

Oh and just a teaser for the Transfer Update;

image.png.55f89214ee59c4a97a8d1ff1ea3bf94b.png

We've spent a bit over 80m, giving us a remainder of 85m, which should equal out to around 42.5m per player.

Our Budgets After

image.png.5b5fced252db6204fded1085727df4ba.png

We still have a sizeable budget, enough for a further 2 players, but we'll save any further In Deals for the next Window.

The table is a little sketchy, only by a little due to me accidentally continuing on to another month after the 3rd of this set. We're first.

This three month period ended with us dropping down to 2nd, however the top 4 is very, very tight. IT doesn't help that Man City have 2 games in hand.

Steve is a player with 5 star potential.

image.thumb.png.9b9cd1adb370ec3c18e39476a81af7d1.png

Badji is a pacey forward who will give solid competition to the likes of our other forwards. And he can also play as a Left Inside Forward. Great stuff.

Youth Intake Update

image.png.b5a2423f74448b3a52173cc40414ab7e.png

This... is a particularly bad intake. No one spectacular in terms of potential. We have 2 decent future strikers and a decent midfielder for the future. We'll be keeping those players on.

It's honestly astonishing how close the title race is right now. Late into the 3 month period, we dropped down to 2nd, but there's only a point seperating us and 1st! Liverpool only need to slip up once!

How did we slip up this massively? 11 points seperating us from 1st, my god. We bottled it dramatically.

image.png.899dafce0ff0c4193f322e4e631b4c0b.png

Another hefty budget.

Barcelona came in with a huge initial offer of 109m for Rashford.  Managed to squeeze a bit more than 50m more out of them for him. Great stuff!

We're separated at the top from Liverpool by purely GD. Great season so far, even though it''s hardly begun.

We win a bunch of awards too.

 

New Contract

image.png.a0c646ade838847a01a9b4cbb41ee2a1.png

The board thinks so too, without me asking for a new contract on my 3rd year of my initial contract!

October 2022 - January 2023

Due to no transfers of any kind, I'm compensating the lack of a transfer update with an extra month.

After a particularly tight run at the top 2, we're now 3 points ahead of Liverpool as they finally slipped up.

So a particularly weird thing happened - no awards were given out to ANYONE after the October 2022 month. It's Feb 2023 now.

This season has been really interesting, with Liverpool being absolutely unbeatable, with a 3 point gap between us, and it's been a 6 point gap for a while now - they now have a game in hand - against us.

Badji is currently our topscorer at the club, with 19 goals in the league.

It's honestly unbelievable how we lost against Liverpool in our Premier Division match, and then thanks to Badji, we won the Champion's Cup. Amazing.

We didn't amount to all that much compared to most of our seasons at Man Utd this season. But, we won the Champions Cup.

We start the season, after 7 league games we're in 2nd with a 3 point lead over 3rd, and a 6 point lead over 4th. Liverpool is strong as usual, taking down pretty much every team they encounter.

image.thumb.png.813ade24411670fb50fa0c65eac65e0c.png

Greenwood, Badji, Fernandes and Telles all doing really well. Great stuff.
