  1. Its gone through That was the quickest takeover ever (Mike Ashley take note) and my first ever tycoon takeover on any version of FM.
  2. Started a new game with Newcastle on the new patch and just finished the first season. We got taken over by a consortium in the first season but now we are going through another takeover this time a tycoon has anyone ever had two takeovers go through two seasons in a row ?
  3. Season Review 2019-20 We have now had back to back promotions as the champions We also won the FA Trophy this season after deciding to take it more seriously than last year and I am glad I did as a trip to Wembley for the final improved our finances and now around £200k in the red. In the FA cup we were knocked out by Sky Bet league two side Swindon Town 3-0 in the first round. Our star man again was Joe Cairns, our top goalscorer for the second year running. He's only rated as a Vanarama National league north/south standard striker so I don't know how he keeps on banging them in the back of the net. Yet again the board have took out another bank loan to expand the stadium to comply with Sky Bet league two standards, so we now have loans of £350k and £720k. For the second straight season our youth intake was abysmal and not one player was signed. That doesn't really surprise me though as the board refuse to accept any of my requests apart from letting me go on one coaching course but have said no every time I have asked to go on another one.
  4. Season Review 2018-19 In our first season we won promotion to the Vanarama National League after winning the Vanarama National League South. We were the leagues draw masters drawing 16 of our 42 matches, winning 20 and losing only 6, so if we could of turned some of them draws into wins then we would of won the league at a canter. In both cup competitions we fielded mainly back up players as my priority was the league and so we went out in the early stages of both competitions. As you can see we signed plenty of players on free transfers as we only had I think 7 or 8 players at the start in our entire club. Our finances are shocking we are just over £200k in the red and the board have just taken out loan of £350k to cover the stadium expansion so we adhere to the leagues minimum stadium requirements. We will need another mass incoming of players next season if we are to at the very least survive but of course I would like us to challenge higher up the table.
  5. I am going to give this challenge a go and after reloading for a good couple of days I finally got the Met. Police
  6. He's like a mini Cristiano Ronaldo. He's just been injured on my save and will miss around one month
  7. I am nearly finished the first season and we are currently 4th with eight games left to play in the Premier League. I have done quite a bit of wheeling and dealing in the transfer market because I think a lot of the players have been underrated by the NUFC researcher this year. My best signing has been Daniel Podence who was signed in the January transfer window from Sporting Lisbon for £7.5m, he has only played 9 games but has scored 5 goals and has 8 assists.
  8. Season Two Review We had a great season back in the Premier League finishing in fourth place and clinching the last Champions League spot, we also won the Europa League at Wembley Stadium. Transfers Cash/Claused Deals l Loan Deals l Free Transfers l How Players On Loan Did l Competitions Premier League The Squad The Future The board has given us £62m to spend next year and the priority is for us to sign a very good striker who is capable of around 30 goals a season in all competitions. I am going to give Freddie Woodman some game time next season after he has impressed on his season long loan at Championship side Charlton, where he was named as goalkeeper of the year. Jonjo Shelvey wants to leave as he's not getting much game time and I'll happily let him go if we get a good offer for him as I am sick to the back teeth of his long shots every game. I am also going to try and sell Tim Krul, Matz Sels, Ciaran Clark, John Obi Mikel, Burgui and possibly Matt Ritchie (for the same reason as Shelvey).
  9. @Stu_UBJ I am going to sell Diamé, I am sick to death of his long shots PPM and he won't unlearn it. Denis Zakaria looks a good player I think I'll enquire about him and see how much they want for him. I have a few more irons in the fire but Berahino won't be one of them as he has agreed to join West Ham for £91k, he wanted around £200k to join us
  10. @Stu_UBJ Signed quite a few players that will come on Bosman frees, the likes of Cristian Tello, Abdou Diallo, Federico Ricci the better ones. Also coming in on frees but will probably be loaned out for a season are Alex Remiro, Jadson, Burgui and Ainsley Maitland-Niles. I am also trying to bring in Saido Berahino on a free but he wants just under £200k a week which even if we could afford I wouldn't pay him that much at this stage of his career. The only two players that I have signed for a fee so far are Lucas Silva for £2.9m and Dayot Upamecano £2.2m. I have also got offers in for Moussa Dembele (Celtic), Louis Schaub (free), Bruno Zuculini (free), John Obi Mikel (free), Gylfi Sigurdsson and a few others.
  11. I've just finished my first season and we finished top and won the EFL cup but I was still not happy with our performance in the league. The amount of close games we lost due to last minute goals was unreal and the amount of long shots Shelvey, Diame and Ritchie had each game was shocking. The board give us £20m in the January transfer window so I broke our transfer record and signed Jack Grealish, who went on to win the player of the year and young player of the year after 5 goals and 9 assists in 19 games. I would of thought Dwight Gayle or Ayoze Pérez would of been better choices personally. I couldn't settle on a formation to play and in the end we played 4-2-3-1 deep, 4-2-3-1 wide, 4-1-4-1, 4-5-1 and 4-4-1-1, now the we'll be in the Premier League and Europa League I will have to stick to a formation. The board have also taken out a loan of £46m to enlarge the stadium by 7500 seats, seems a bit much too much money to me. The training and youth facilities are also getting improved.
  12. Marseille 2015/16 Review Ligue 1 We finished second in my first season in charge at Marseille, I am happy with that but to be honest I would of prefered to be a lot closer to PSG points wise. Twelve points is a huge difference to make up and no doubt PSG will be even better next season depending on who they bring in. Ligue 1 results part one l part two The cups In both domestic cups we went out early and embarrassingly, on both occasions it was my own fault, I fielded weakened teams in which only goalkeeper Steve Mandanda played in the first eleven. I needed to do that though because I obviously wanted to prioritise Ligue 1 so I would finish in the Champions League places and also the Europa League knockout stages as I wanted to see how far we could go. Domestic cups results We won the Europa League beating Turkish side Fenerbahce in the final. We knocked out three English sides on the way to the final but if you look at our fixtures in this competition we could of definitely had harder games other than Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.
