Bayern Munich's dominance is like PSG in France....especially in FM....

The problem is that if you have a decent prospect on your team in Germany they swoop in and the board usually sells over your objections and then a few years later they sell them to a Premier League Team or Real Madrid for a huge profit!

Just checked Ligue 1´s past winners and it looks nearly identical...

They do a lot of strange transfers too though like selling a very good player for peanuts to me (Lamine Tapé when I was at Celta Vigo) and buying him back for much more just a couple of seasons later  :) Still, they get away with that and win and win and win....

I guess it depends on your board to and your relationship with them too. Usually if the board likes you, they may give you the reins over who you sell. Also depends on the club's reputation, the financial situation your club is in and the amount offered for a player.

Bearing that in mind, I really, really hope my board doesn't dismantle my Chemie side too. :lol:

Transfers & Our New Team

 

spacer.png

Only one remarkable departure: The man with the funny name leaves for Eindhoven. He had stalled in his development and he wanted to leave anyway.

 

spacer.png

Highland is the English national team keeper. He was free so it would have been a crime let this go unnoticed. Milivojevic is a 17 year old left winger talent who goes to our U19Diallo is a Spanish U21 player for central midfield. Binzenbach can player either wing in offense. A familiar face: Left defender Efren Alonso joins from my former club Celta Vigo for 27M! He will be worth the money I am sure. Santamaria is another young talent who goes straight to the U19. Adrianinho is a ball-winning midfielder.

 

 

The Team

Goalkeepers

spacer.png

2 great keepers battling it out.

 

Defenders

spacer.png

Alonso our new left wingback. No big changes otherwise.

 

Midfielders

spacer.png

We got more options in central midfield now. Orlov is developing into a superb player. Fitz is looking to do the same.

 

Attackers

spacer.png

Both Farkas and Marquez could pose a thread to any defense.

 

Key Player

Tobias Orlov

The winger who can also play in attack has become one of our most important players.

Football Was My First Love, And It'll Be My Last

 

RESULTS

Great start into the new season! A hammering of lowly Freiberg followed 2 wins and a draw against Bayern. If it wasnt for that last game, we would be topping the table (almost)!

RESULTS

In the league, we are keeping our clean sheet but in europe it looks slightly different. We lost our first match in Eindhoven and then conceded 4 goals in that goal bonanza which was that epic 6-4 victory against Milan. A night to remember for our fans!

What year are you in? When was the last non Bayern Winner of the Bundesliga before you?

It´s the 2042/43 season now. The last time Bayern was not the winner (it was RBL) was 2029/30 while I was still at Zwolle :)

New Year, New Hope

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

Two expected wins and one expected defeat. This sums up our January pretty well.

 

BUNDESLIGA

spacer.png

Bayern moved into 3rd position, but the gap is still 8 points.

 

NEWS

spacer.png

We sold 3 players, one of them a prominent name: Ayhan Güler moves to the country of his ancestors. He was angry at being benched for the first half of the season, but his rival showed that he is much better, so he went. Tetteh and Kellner were making noises and so they went too.

 

spacer.png

We bring in Argentinian U20 player Claudio Alba from Boca Juniors for 5M. The 18 year old has potential, but also still a lot to learn.

RESULTS

We crash out of the cup after extra time against Leverkusen. But in the league we keep our winning record which is crucial, as our hunters keep up too. And we beat Lille!

 

BUNDESLIGA

Bayern had 1 draw besides their wins this month, so now its a gap of 10 points.

(Not) Marching On

 

RESULTS

A home defeat to Dortmund and a loss at lowly Dusseldorf. I would have expected a minimum 3 points from these 2 games. At least we are through to the Europa League quarter finals against Arsenal.

Suddenly it´s only FOUR points...

Coming Close

 

RESULTS

spacer.png

A lot of tight and lucky games for us there! The win against Wolfsburg came after we scored twice deep into stoppage time! Same against Gladbach when we scored the winning goal shortly before the end. A penalty thriller against Arsenal saw us through to the Europa League semi final against Valencia, but we lost the 1st leg 0-1. 

 

BUNDESLIGA

spacer.png

So close, yet so far... we need 4 points to secure the title!

Marcel Maier looks like a good talent.

Triumph

 

RESULTS

We did it! We are the new Bundesliga Champions dethroning eternal Bayern! And we even managed to win the Europa League! The trick was to rest our whole first eleven in the game against Hoffenheim to  keep them fresh for the remaining games and it worked perfectly!

Season Summary

spacer.png

Well, what is there to say? Everything fell perfectly into place. And Real Madrid are now after Tobias Orlov!

 

TACTICAL CHANGE

spacer.png

I know they say "never change a winning team" but I want to try something new next season with 3 at the back and 2 Raumdeuters on the wings, I chose the roles to suit the players best positions and roles. Never did that before. This could end in horror as there seem to be big gaps between defence and midfield, especially on the wings but I will give it a try nevertheless. We got nothing to lose anymore now!

Transfers & Our New Team

 

spacer.png

Talented Youngster Ludwig went to Schalke for a fee we could not refuse. All the other players leaving were surplus to requirements or just plain bad.

spacer.png

We spent 111M! The Kevin Schmidt transfer though was a transfer the board took over after I asked them to finance it.

 

Dyron Nelisse

25 year old Curacaoan central defender as we need more quality there now for our 3-at-the-back-defence.

 

Michael Köse

Former FC Bayern player whose contract ran out. Good attacking midfielder, 25 years old.

 

Kevin Schmidt

Our new rock in central defense. The 26 year old joins from rivals Wolfsburg.

 

 

Jens Frömming

Backup for one of the DCs.

 

Michael Reuter

Backup winger.

 

Jovair & Brian Kayiwa

Talents for our U19 team.

 

 

The Team

 

Goalkeepers

spacer.png

Highland but Dlugosz might get some cup games. He got bags of talent.

 

Defenders

spacer.png

Schmidt, Nelisse & Videla should be our back three for the season.

 

Midfielders

spacer.png

Köse is a great free transfer! Together with Godfrey & Orlov this should make a nice row of 3 behind the lone striker.

 

Attackers

spacer.png

The lone warrior up front.

 

Key Player

Pablo Marquez

His goals are vital.

New Season, New Tactics

 

RESULTS

What looked so good and defensively solid during pre-season (AND both Supercups which we won!) turned into a shooting gallery once the season started. At least, after some fine tuning, we were able to shut up shop against Osnabrück.

What are the tactics? I am hoping for 3 at the back....nevermind found it. 

 

I might make the DLF-A a DLF-S and make the AM-A.

As for midfield I might change the outside MC to MEZ and PI to stay wider....

Also consider making the BPD-D a BPD-C also the outside CB-s should have a stay wider PI when you have the ball....and consider changing the roles to Stopper. So they aggressively protect the flanks since the Ramdeuters are useless for tracking back.

My Two Cents.

I am no expert.....more like a dilettante, but I experiment and apply what works from other peoples saves as well.

 

I hope this season goes well....keep kicking Bayern.....eventually they will fall over!

This Is The End

 

This might come as a surprise, but I have finally decided to end this save. I just cannot find any motivation anymore to play it. I apologize to everyone who was expecting some more Bayern challenging here, but this save has had its time. Will be looking to start a new fresh save with a more interesting challenge in the near future.

Thank you all for contributing. It was a pleasure :)

@Carambau I understand the lack of motivation after a while. especially when you become good but can't really take the next step. The frustration becomes the reason you search for motivation. Also writing on this forum becomes a chore..... thus I  have decided that I will only do one career on the forum each year. 

I wish you well in whatever you decide and will follow whenever you start a new thread.
