[FM23] Glory Hunter

Recommended Posts

I am going to try to win every competition with a team that's never won it before.
I've started with the top 6 leagues loaded (Eng, Spa, Ger, Fra, Ita, Bra) and will start at club level, but eventually look for international employment too.
The first competition on my list to win is the UCL. That means that the following teams are off limits:

This thread will be following the managerial career of CM03/04 Pompey youth star Supat Rungratsamee: 

image.png.85109fc2fd8be8f4d22d062e3df729d5.png
 

Rungratsamee started as a rapid 15yo in Portsmouth's Reserves, but he quickly broke into the first team & not very soon after interest was drawn from clubs all across world football.

supat0304.jpeg.45166e32d9c64b386870e7261c0f31b3.jpeg
 

At 21 he had amassed 22 goals in 27 caps for his country, Thailand, as well as establishing himself as a first team starter for Bayern Munich!

supat03042.jpeg.b7b6bde9e1a94d0711a9b20083ad4ddb.jpeg
 

However, unfortunately, a horrific injury cut his playing career short at only 23 years old.
Eventually capped 42 times for Thailand and with a huge global reputation, he turned his demise into dedication.

As a serial winner on the pitch, he aimed to become the same from the sidelines. By 29, he had finished studying back-to-back coaching badges whilst working his way up through the leagues in the women's game. After dominating the WSL for 3 seasons & winning the WCL last season too, he has now been handed his first job in the men's game. At one of the elite teams in world football...

Akanji has immediately become my least favourite player after injuring Haaland with an act of violent conduct 5 minutes in to our intra-squad "friendly".

image.png.01c550564f6d9c0c95920ce99bb01666.png
 

Haaland still managed to get on the scoresheet beforehand.

He should just about make it back for the start of the season, we'll see.

No real surprises in our lineup.

But some big surprises from the Liverpool camp!
Not only has VVD missed out due to injury, but Liverpool have had an injury crisis at GK.
Of all 3 of their first team squad GKs, only 35yo Adrian is available.

891336120_Screenshot2023-01-25at02_59_18.png.ab5af6a1dba643ccee1646ca028d9db6.png
 

But Klopp has chosen to give youth a shot and chosen 18yo Harvey Davies between the sticks.

...if we weren't favourites before, we have to be now!

 Community Shield 

image.png.c6f188cec626746a8f66f1f15ff154e4.png
 

An early yellow for both Cancelo 5' & then Rodri 8'.
...we can't afford to go down to 10-men against this Liverpool side, these guys need to be careful.

11'
A superb Bernardo Silva cross is met by the head of Grealish at the far post to thump us into a 1-0 lead!

14'
The game is getting feisty!
Cancelo with another wreckless challenge & he's very much on an orange card, just before a robust challenge ends Bernardo Silva's evening early.
Cancelo could have counted himself lucky to be on the pitch... if I hadn't have decided to take him off already! An early double substitution:
Cancelo <> Ake
Bernardo Silva <> Foden

28'
Salah breaks free from Ake cutting in to the box on his own but a limp shot rolls straight in to Ederson's gloves.
Ederson lumps it forward, Gundogan feeds Foden who drives to the byline before cutting it back for Haaland to bag a debut goal!

33'
Ake picks up a yellow card. Salah is causing all sorts of trouble down our left side.

45+1'
Haaland stops Gundogan from making it 3-1 just before the break by accidentally blocking a strike from the edge of the area destined for the back of the net.
Ruben Dias picks up another yellow card as Liverpool try to counter on the break.

64'
We're comfortable at 11v11 and my priority is to keep it that way!
Ruben Dias <> Akanji
Ake <> Rico Lewis

Yellow cards: Ake 69', Lewis 71' :seagull:

80'
Salah smashes the bar from a freekick from way out. It's the closest they've come.
We're coasting! ..but I'm aware one goal could change that.

...

33 days in the job & already my first piece of silverware! :D
 

 

We exploited a weak backline, but we really got away with facing an impotent Liverpool frontline today.

image.png.8cdf7a28685415c07fee831ee190def7.png
 

 

Foden came off of the bench early to claim the MotM.

Aug 22

We've had a few injuries to contend with.

But they haven't stopped us from totally dominating our games so far.
(Although Newcastle were winning 2-0 at HT.)

Haaland has 13 goals in 6 games. Cheat code!

Arsenal have matched our perfect record and we have the Manchester derby next.
Liverpool had a rocky start, but just made a big statement by matching the league's biggest win record.

A clean sweep of the PotM awards.

But Arsenal pip us to the YPotM award.

& Arteta was chosen for MotM.
He was perceived to have a harder set of opening fixtures, so despite our GD being over double Arsenal's after 5 games, I have to settle for 2nd spot. (not bitter)

The Manchester Derby

We dominated every stat apart from the one that mattered.

Rashford scored with one of United's few chances as the game opened up towards full time.
To compound our misery, immediately from kick-off after scoring Rashford injured Haaland and we had a limping forward for the last 5 mins.

1588660583_Screenshot2023-01-25at16_08_32.png.f9a6df696b8b62236eb0bb1700ecc510.png

Luckily Haaland's injury wasn't too bad in the end.
But Gundogan's injury could really hurt us, especially as Silva is out again too.

We're favourites!

This month we saw some fragility. After losing the Manchester derby, we were outclassed by Brighton who could've won the match by a lot more.
We've started well in our UCL group & the huge win over Liverpool should hopefully get us back on the right trajectory.

I've been looking at short-term loan deals for players that could provide some squad depth with all our injuries.
Hazard was one of the top players & we managed to agree a deal with Real Madrid.
But I cancelled the deal as they insisted that if we win the Premier League we pay them £13M and sign Hazard permanently.

Oct 2022

A very busy month started with us throwing away a 2-0 lead at Palace.
We've been great in the premier league aside from that result & a terrible loss at Nottingham Forest where we had 40+ shots to their 10.
We've qualified from our UCL group with a game to spare, but it worries me that we couldn't beat Barcelona home or away.

Our Carabao Cup tie against West Ham has increased significance as they have started incredibly in the league.

We managed a brilliant, statement win!
But it isn't any easier in the next round.

Haaland proved he was human against Liverpool.

Arsenal got lucky against us, which drops us down to 2nd.

The board have been pretty generous as we look to bring in higher quality squad depth.
Another injury to Walker highlights the importance of bringing in new additions!

We've had our youth intake preview too.
It's extremely defensive! I guess those are the positions I'm hoping to strengthen so I'm happy.
