  1. 2026 June and July League Action: Jun 3rd Xiangtao (H) W 2-1 [Wu Lei 17, Nickson 41] The visitors sit in 8th place after 5 wins, 4 draws and 4 defeats. We make 3 changes to the side as Yu Yuanzong and Su Yujie both picked up injuries in training and Heydari has started his World Cup duty for Iran, Sami Al-Sanea makes his first appearance for me at right-back with Liu Lijun making his first start on the other side of the defence as Wu Lei returns to the side and Wen Jun moves alongside Zheng Xufeng. The visitors took the lead on 11 minutes with Xu Ye finding Ye Chugui with a thr
  2. Looking forward to following this - even if you're looking at beating one of our former player's promotion records.
  3. 2026 - Time To Move After a slight rebuild at Henan before jumping ship, it was off to Guangzhou who had won the league title 2 years ago but had disappointed, finishing last season in 5th place. After a few incomings that i'll review at the end of the season, the board decided that it was a good idea to sell my only senior right-back (I presume because they are complete morons) so I was left with a centre-back covering there for the season. Matches from March to the end of May Mar 7th – Shanggang (A) W 2-1 [Nickson 21, Djiteye 33] My first game in charge of Guan

  5. International Career: Feb 2018 – Feb 2023 Nigeria (Africa) Out of the African Cup of Nations in the group stage in 2019, not playing in the tournament in 2021 (no idea why as I won all 6 qualifying games) before finishing bottom of the group in 2023 and rightly sacked. Feb 2025 – present Egypt (Africa) Had a break from international management but was offered both Egypt and Ghana as options post ’25 ACoN. Having already qualified for the World Cup (under the previous management), I’ll be using that to build towards the ACoN tournament the following winter in D.R. Congo.
  6. As I am several years into the game at this point I will give you a run-down of the career to date in this and the next post. Domestic Career: July 2015 – Aug 2019 Fram (Iceland) After spending time applying for what feels like hundreds of jobs, it was off to the Icelandic 2nd tier to manage Fram from the capital Reykjavik. With the league season running from May to September, it was a good chance for me to get a system in place for getting promoted the following season. After finishing 9th in my first half-season and 8th in my first full season, I made a number of signings to a
  7. Trophy Cabinet - those in bold count towards the challenge: 2017 - Icelandic Second Tier 2018 - Icelandic Cup 2018 - Icelandic First Tier 2018 - Icelandic Manager of the Year 2019 - Icelandic Upper Cup Progress For The Challenge: Domestic Leagues Won: 1 - Iceland Domestic Cups Won: 1 - Iceland Continental Cups Won: 0 Confederation Titles Won: 0 World Cup/World Club Cup Won: 0 Languages Spoken: English (Fluent, Start of Game), Greek (Fluent, Start of Game), Icelandic (Fluent), Arabic (Basic)
  8. In this thread we are looking at the progress of me doing the Ultimate Challenge career with the original thread being found here. Basically, it’s my job to win 10 different top tier leagues (which have to include England, France, Germany, Italy and Spain), 10 cups in different countries that contain top tier clubs (i.e. For England we are looking at the League Cup or FA Cup and not something like the EFL Trophy), the 5 continental titles and Club World Cup at club level as well as the 5 confederations titles and the World Cup at international level. Here's my profile at the start:
  9. Onto the 2018 season where it was our first season in the top flight and the Icelandic Liverpool (having not won it since 1990) only did it at the first attempt, earning me the Manager of the Year trophy in the process. Here are the results that made it possible. It wasn't the only trophy that we won as we also picked up the Upper League Cup which is played before the league season starts so I'm not sure on whether to count it or not (think I should seeing as the minutes played are counted as competitive minutes in the minutes total). Despite this, I've signed a new 12-month extension to
  10. 2015 Season: Took over midway through the season when the club were in 9th place and finished in the same position after these results. Had taken over the club after the club had been eliminated out of both cups. 2016 Season: A slight improvement for this season as we finished in 8th place having made a number of signings that were mostly cover rather than first team quality and crashed out of both cups fairly early. 2017 Season: Having made a number of signings (probably far too many considering a number were sent on language courses to learn Icelandic), we finished t
  11. Sign me up for some madness. Loaded up FM16 to play this (with these leagues at the start of the game) and have taken over Fram in the Icelandic 2nd tier (manager screen).
  12. Nice start to the career mate.
