  1. [FM17] Starting at the top (of Scotland)

    Leicester City Football Club Premier League 2021/22 September A month with two good away wins - albeit against two sides really struggling even this early on. The one defeat saw Arsenal take the points with a second half penalty. Away to Boro we were very comfortable winners, 2-0 up before the host scored their first then we had added two more goals before the break. The second half was more like a pre season game and despite conceding the job was done in the first 45 minutes. Bournemouth away had the same end result but this time we went 3-0 up after just 35 minutes then the home side scored either side of the break to get back into the game. That lasted three minutes until Dumont completed his hatrick and finally killed off Bournemouth. It's all about the goals at our games so far this season. EFL Cup 3rd Round Went to Leeds and again rested some players but also tweaked the formation a little in hope of keeping a clean sheet. It worked and worked better than expected - the Championship side failed to register a shot on target all game. We eased through to the 4th round with a goal in each half and could even afford a penalty miss from Mahrez. We host Crystal Palace in the next round. Young Player of the Month Two of the top three in this category.

    Leicester City Football Club Premier League 2021/22 August Entertaining. That is the word we shall use for the month of the season. I knew it was going to be tough given the fixtures so being on four points isn't disheartening at all. Hosting Manchester City on the opening weekend saw us share a four goal thriller that we led in through Mahrez before a 30 yard hit from Bernarndo Silva levelled matter and City led with 16 minutes to go through Koke. Up step record signing Mustafa Yildirim from the bench in the 93rd minute to rescue a point. Liverpool away followed a similar theme - us leading early only to be begged back just before the break and then going behind in the last quarter of the game. No late rescue on this occasion. Win number one came at home to Crystal Palace with attacking midfielder Fitzgerald finishing an excellent cross from Mahrez, then six minutes later defender Lato was sent off for a reckless tackle. Southampton away came before the International break and that was painful. The hosts just toyed with us really - 2-0 down after 3 minutes, 3-0 after 16 minutes we pulled one back and then a second. Straight after the break Southampton added a 4th, we quickly pulled another back before they calmly scored a 5th. EFL Cup 2nd Round Almost a disaster here. Rested most of the starting XI from the previous games away to League One Walsall but it needed super sub Dumont to save us. We fell behind on 5 minutes then fought back to lead 2-1 in the 19th minute. Walsall weren't done and a first half header then a penalty sent them in leading 3-2. Sub Dumont scored twice late on, both assisted by Gray who had also entered the game late on. Blushes spared and it's Leeds away next. Transfer Out One final piece of transfer business this summer saw defender Conti move to Manchester City for an initial £14m. He had been injured during pre season and I was happy enough to accept the money for him.

    Leicester City Football Club Premier League 2021/22 Pre Season Transfers In Transfers Out Disappointed to lose Ben Chilwell - the deal agreed just before I took charge. That aside all deals were with my blessing apart from Kuki. Results Nice summer of football. Plans changed with the sale of Kuki but we are ready to go. It will be a tough start as we host Manchester City and then travel to Liverpool.
  5. [FM17] Starting at the top (of Scotland)

    Welcome to Leicester City Mustafa Yildirim, a club record purchase at £34m. It was £20m upfront and another £1.2m a month for 12 months. Yildirim started his career in Turkey at Kayserispor scoring 37 goals in 4 and a half years. That form brought an £8.5m move to Mainz which saw him scoring 11 goals in 16 games before Leicester made the move for him.

    Thanks....that's exactly how I feel... Yep. Interview - Continue -Sacked.

    Real Madrid midfielder joins on a season long loan. He isn't half bad for free! Another loanee but this one I know - spent last season at Deportivo with me scoring 6 and assisting 6 in 28 games. It's a step up for him but worth a punt. A big sale for the club and one I did not want. He was to be the linchpin of our season but unhappy as previous bids had been rejected and he turned down a new £145k pw contract with us. On the plus side I have £19m to spend.
  8. [FM17] Starting at the top (of Scotland)

    Summer Deals The following two players have joined Leicester City prior to my arrival on June 21st and swallowed by all bar £2m of my budget. A signing from Chelsea for £9.75m, Boga spent past of last season on loan here playing 10 times and scoring just the once. Previous loan moves include Stade Rennais, EA Guinggamp and 26 games in the PL for Bournemouth. Young striker who was on my radar at Deportivo but we never had the finances to try a deal. I think he's a steal at £2.9m and with 18 goals in 39 games in the top two leagues in Spain he knows how to finish.

    In terms of the game - dreadful. The 2016/17 saw them finish 17th - 7 points from the drop. Then came a comfortable 10th place before finishing 15th and staying up by 3 points. That was the difference between Watford in 14th (38 pts) and Fulham in 19th (35pts). 2019/20 saw another scrap at the bottom end - 16th staying afloat by two points then came last seasons 15th. Craig Shakespere last until March 2019 with Rafa Benitez joining for a short lived 8 months that saw just 5 wins from 21 games. Roberto Di Matteo then came in and stayed 450 days winning 20 of his 63 games. The came me! The FA Cup has seen two QF appearances but have not got past the 4th Round of the EFL yet.

    Former Club Watch Inverness Caledonian Thistle A successful season for ICT last term - finishing 3rd behind Rangers and Hearts. That doesn't tell the whole story as they missed out on the title by six points - this after losing 4 of the 5 games after the split. A chance missed. A penalty defeat to Celtic came in the Scottish Cup Semi Final and they were embarrassed in the League Cup - failing in the pre season Group Stage. Blackburn Rovers Time to delve into League Two and again more heartbreak for Rovers. They finished 5th, missing out on promotion by 4 points. This brought a Play Off Semi Final with Notts County that saw Rovers win both legs (2-1 and 2-0). The Final at Wembley saw it settled by a single goal - Shrewsbury's Riccardo German getting the important goal after 4 minutes. The EFL Cup saw a 1st Round exit away to Norwich, defeated in the Checkatrade Paint Trophy Group Stage and in the FA Cup Crewe won a 3rd Round Replay on penalties. Charlton Athletic After the delights of 4th place under my management things didn't go to plan for the Addicks. The season ended with just 47 points - finishing 21st and surviving by a point from all three relegated clubs (Nottm F, Coventry and Norwich). Another quirk of the season is Cardiff and Birmingham finishing with identical records therefore Cardiff were 'randomly chosen' to finish higher. Luckily it makes little difference as the battle was for 15th place. In the cups Charlton exited the ELF Cup in the 2nd Round losing to AFC Wimbledon and the 3rd Round of the FA Cup following defeat at Sheffield Wednesday.

    Deportivo de La Coruna March - End of Season 2020/21 Job done with some ease really. Te and Lucas by far the main men of the season with over 50 goals between them. My short stay is over in Spain for now but I aim to be back - maybe with Deportivo. Now it's onto Leicester City who ended the season 15th - 8 points clear of relegation.
  12. [FM17] Starting at the top (of Scotland)

    So this has happened. I have decided to see out the season in Spain and complete the promotion job before moving back to England. This could be a huge mistake as with 7 games to go Leicester are just 5 points ahead of the PL drop zone. Come the end of May i'll know if I've made the right choice.
  13. [FM17] Starting at the top (of Scotland)

    Deportivo de La Coruna December - February 2020/21 A little blip of three defeats and we threw away a 2-0 lead against Rayo Vallecano. Those four games aside its been maximum points with the goals spread a little more as Lucas was out for a month and Te three weeks. Martinez took his chance when he came into the team. 13 games to go but we are looking more and more certain to be playing La Liga football next term.
  14. [FM17] Starting at the top (of Scotland)

    Deportivo de La Coruna August - November 2020/21 All in all a pretty decent start. Out early in the cup but the league has to be the priority. We started off playing really well but sucker punched with a last gasp goal but from then on we looked excellent for the most part. Two names jump off the screen with Te scoring 14 times and Lucas 14 times also. All in all we are doing what we need to do. Finish in the top 2 is the single aim for the season and we are on course for that.
  15. [FM17] Starting at the top (of Scotland)

    Deportivo de La Coruna Pre Season 2020/21 Outs Was always going to be a busy summer with players unhappy at relegation. In all honesty I've lost maybe two players I wanted to keep - the rest i'm less bothered about. Ins Certainly making the most of the Benfica link up. Also joining the club is Jason Reilly from Charlton - the third time I've signed the 18 year old. We have also agreed with Everton to sell Martinez but he will remain on loan here for two seasons. The difference between going up or not will be these two guys I suspect. Results That's not a bad pre season. We are ready to roll. Former Arsenal frontman Lucas has been excellent during the summer - another big player for us.
