  1. Crispypaul VfB Stuttgart 1. Bundesliga 2026/27 League - Table | Fixtures - we were sitting bottom at the end of the season - a very lucky win in Munich kicked us off but it wasn't until the last game of the season we stayed up. Cup - Fixtures - only played one game, a narrow defeat away to Schalke Finances - a little better once we got the prize money at the end of the season Transfers - money was a little tight but I made a couple of tweaks here Squad - a number of older high earners will be shifted in the summer Key players - Ahmet Yildirim - one of the better performers was the young left back from Mainz Sebastian Olivera - I signed the Uruguyan keeper on a free after his frankly odd release from Racing de Montivideo, and he helped reduce the number of goals conceded. Later capped for Uruguay. Kodjo Mensah - as expected the young winger had a pretty decent season - sadly Bayern Munich met his release clause during close season Mario Billinger - Stuttgart have a pretty decent youth system and this youth product did well in central defence Future - obviously I have to win the German league however Stuttgart are so far behind financially from any of the big boys it might be too difficult. I am going to see out the season until my contract expires anyway.

  2. Not long after I resigned from Ulsan I looked around and saw the Fiorentina and Stuttgart jobs were open - had interviews with both but it was Stuttgart that offered me the job which I of course accepted I joined when they were in quite a poor state, at the bottom of the table 5 points from safety. I am not sure why as the squad looks to have a lot of good young players (although some non playing higher earners to shift) in particular centre half Mario Billinger and winger Kodjo Mensah Finances are fine too. First game is away at Bayern Munich - obviously a write off so hopefully we can get some wins on the board after that.
  3. Crispypaul Ulsan K-League 1 2026 League - Table | Fixtures 1 | Fixtures 2 - pretty comfortable as we won the title by some distance AFC Champions League - Table | Fixtures - we were drawn into a group of Heibei of China, Cerezo Osaka of Japan and Buriram of Thailand, which we won comfortably. Next up Al-Sadd of Qatar in the quarters whom we dispatched 6-0 on aggregate. Next up Al-Ahli of Saudi Arabia, again another comfortable pair of fixtures. We then had Perth Glory in the semis and got past them fairly comfortably. Finally beating Al-Hilal in the final gave us the Champions League. KFA Cup - Fixtures - retained the trophy after a win over Suwon Samsung Bluewings in the final Club World Cup - Fixtures - got to the semi finals until knocked out by Man Utd (eventual winners) although we did win the third place playoff Finances - no problems here Transfers - chopped and changed somewhat. Unfortunately lost my best right winger after the summer transfer window to a Saudi side for his release clause. Squad Key players - Gary McCarter - former Newcastle Jets central midfielder signed on a free after his strange release, became our top performing midfielder Rene - experienced Brazilian left back continued off from last season Lee Young-Ki - another solid midfielder with a couple of caps for South Korea under his belt Jung Do-Hyun - really strong centre back whom I had to fight off a lot of interest over the season Son Heung-Min - the Tottenham legend was released mid-way through 2026 - although I probably paid him too much for the K-League £25k a week is a bargain for this incredibly good forward Marcus Tavernier - the English winger was signed on a season long loan deal from Middlesborough and was comfortably one of the best players in the division As I got the Asian Champions League I needed I resigned at the end of the season. Now looking for a European job. Iran Asian Cup 2027 I joined Iran knowing that the Asian Cup was coming up not long into the new year. Group Stages - Table -| Fixtures - An easy group with Turkmenistan, Kuwait and North Korea which we won comfortably Knockouts - Tree - first up we played near neighbours Syria and stuffed them 5-0. Next up holders and hosts Australia, and a much closer game as we sneaked past 1-0. In the semis we played China who folded to a 4-0 win Final - the final was against Japan - I expected a tough game but we were 3-0 up at half time and grabbed another in the second half to win the trophy. A great performance and we had 6 players in the All Star XI. I resigned not long after.

  4. I'd suggest staying for a bit to try and win the ACL. Although you'll probably have to compete with Korean and probably Saudi sides.
  5. I'll have that DVD please Sorry to hear about the end but looking forward to your next career
  6. Yeah it's a funny one. I was only there for a single full season in the end. Good luck getting your first cup off the list though My PC has now been repaired and back with me so can continue with my challenge save - just finishing off the 2026 season with Ulsan, hope to have an update at the weekend.
  7. Fantastic choice In previous FMs I have taken Spurs over a little down the line and the squad has been a bit messy. How's it been for you?
  8. Not sure where this goes but I had a weird news item - it says "title contenders Ulsan are currently lying in 2nd place in the K League 1 Grp A" but we're 1st and quite comfortably so Can upload a save file just after if needed
  9. Lyn Norwegian 1st Division 2020 Season Review League - Table | Fixtures 1 | Fixtures 2 - well that went a lot better than expected - I am not sure whether we were stronger than everyone else or they were weaker than us but it was a pretty straightforward title win in the end. Cup - Fixtures - a good run to the quarter finals ended with a defeat to top tier Sandejford Key players: Transfers - another season of change. Unfortunately we had an insecure status at the start of the season so the board accepted stupidly low offers for Ostvold and Kvanne - at least with Kvanne I managed to offer him out in time and Rosenborg offered £40k + 50% profit + loan back for 12 months. Still quite frustrating mind. Torstein Mjonner - a free transfer from the lower leagues, absolutely solid centre half Patrik Karoliussen - an experienced central midfielder picked up on a free from Asker Olav Oby - another solid central midfielder signed on a free, but with a great scoring record this season Filip Johansen Westgaard - another solid season from the right back Erik Haugstad - also carried his form into the new season Youth Update: So terrible I didn't bother tagging anyone. Finances - a lot more solid than before, so I've managed to get a couple of improvements to the youth coaching and recruitment (now good/average). As happened when I did this in FM18, we are in the top division as a semi-pro club so going to struggle next season. Hopefully we can stay up.

  10. Hopefully I can return to this....my computer where this was saved stopped working a couple of weeks ago and is finally going back to the manufacturer to fix. Fingers crossed they don't need to wipe the boot drive where my save was
  11. It's a tough situation to be in but sorting out the finances of a poorly run club can be quite an interesting challenge
