I got very lucky as Man City had the chance to win it on the final day - away to Wolves, they only need a draw to secure the title. They lost, I won my final game, and took the title! Finances are a shambles, the board took out a £14m loan during the season to put us back in the black. Prize money from winning the league helped, and Champions League money should keep me comfortable. Won't be brining in many players this season anyway as I'm very happy with the current squad.

With hopes of pushing up the table and nabbing a place in European competition, I ended up a spot lower than last year, even though I accrued 3 points more. Made some progress in the FA cup, reaching the quarter-finals. I've taken a huge gamble with my finances for the upcoming season, as I've signed several players for large fees, all set to be paid over 48 months. I think I need to qualify for Europe this season, or all my top players may need to be offloaded to balance the books.

I had a decent first season in the Premier League. I made an excellent start, and I was hopeful of possibly finishing in the top 7 and nabbing a Europa Leauge spot if possible. However, things started to get tougher and I dropped down the table. At one point, it looked like I might end up in a relegation battle. However, results start to pick up slightly and a good run at the end of the season saw me push up to 9th, as it looked like I would finish around 12th a few weeks earlier. Did nothing of note in the cup competitions. A lot of my long term players have left the club. Oliver Nicholas, Jack Adams, Chris Williams, Gary Basham and Jake Cassidy, all of whom are on my 150+ apps list below, have gone. Gary Basham was the only one who was still a regular, but he wanted to move to a bigger club. The replacements I'm bringing in seem to be better quality so I'm looking to improve on my 9th place finish.

I was sitting pretty at the top of the Championship in January with an 11 point cushion, but a huge slump in form (3 wins in about 12 league matches) put a dent in my bid to finish top, and indeed it looked like I was heading for the playoffs until the final league match. With Reading in 2nd, and FC United 1 point behind (with a better goal difference), there were a few possible outcomes. A defeat meant I would be consigned to the playoffs. If Reading lost, a draw or a victory would send me up, and if Reading drew, only a win would move me up to 2nd place. A Reading victory would end all hopes of automatic promotion. I managed to scrape a 2-1 win away at Sheffield United, while Reading could only draw with MK Dons - promotion to the Premier League was mine! In the FA Cup I made it through to the 5th round, where I faced League 1 team Plymouth. Unfortunately, this came in the middle of my team's slump and I was dumped out after a replay. Plymouth went on to make it to the final, where they lost to Man United on penalties. I'm struggling to find players to bring in to replace those leaving the club, so it will be a hard slog in the top league. My finances were ruined by squad bonuses and paying £1m to build 700 seats to meet Premier League regulations. But it seems that the club is handing me the TV money up front by setting a transfer budget of £15m. This should be interesting.

Was kinda funny to see that Bolton and Newcastle had dropped down into this division. A few of my players look like they could play for me all the way to the premier league: Kevin Broomfield, Gary Basham and Jean-Philippe Crepin in particular. This season's cup runs were pretty disappointing compared to the previous year. Out in the 3rd round after a replay against Man United, out of the League Cup in the 2nd round and out of the JPT a couple rounds before the final. Will be interested to see how my team copes in the Championship. Only four or five players will be leaving the club at the end of the season due to age/not being good enough. Also, thought I would steal someone else's idea and put in some player stats below.

  6. Did an English team that finished lower than you win the Champions League?
  7. Away to Man United in 3rd round of FA cup... Congrats on promotion naylinski.
  8. Haven't played for a few days, so it's about time I fired FM up again. Sitting top of League 1 with FC United after 9 games...

Dominated the league and won it comfortably in the end. Won the Johnstone's Paint Trophy against Ipswich, and made it to the 6th round of the FA cup where I lost away to Arsenal. Finances were steady over the course of the season, but the FA cup run helped swell the coffers. I think I'm going to struggle to keep this form going in League 1. A few players are leaving the club, and I don't have any replacements lined up meaning panic buys will likely be made before the end of the transfer window.

  10. Peterborough dispatched in the 5th round of the FA cup, next up is Liverpool or Arsenal away... don't think I'm going to emulate jordan's run this season.
  11. Beat Leeds again, this time in the 3rd round of the FA cup (at home). Away to Championship side Swindon in the 4th round - not quite the money-spinning tie I was hoping for...
  12. I just had my best win of the challenge so far, 3-0 away to Leeds in the league cup. It was also my first match against a team on the rivals list.

A run of 6 games without a win allowed our closest rivals, Grimsby, to catch up and our continued bad form allowed them to overtake us at the top of the league. In the last game of the season, I had Grimsby at home. They were 1 point clear at the top, so only a victory would allow me to win the league title and gain automatic promotion. In a fantastic first half performance, I dominated the opposition but only had a 1-0 lead to show for it. Of course, within 10 minutes of the game resuming, Grimsby scored twice and held on to win the match and league title. This left the playoffs as my only hope for promotion. Drawn against Forest Green, I hammered them 4-1 away from home in the first leg. We made things difficult for ourselves in the 2nd leg, going down to 10 men in the first half. Forest Green scored twice and I had to hang on for dear life to see out the tie and progress to the final. 38,000 fans turned out at Wembley to see FC United take on Histon in the BSP Playoff Final. We controlled the game for large periods and took a comfortable 1-0 victory to achieve promotion to League 2. Had a decent run in the FA Cup this season too, reaching the 4th round before being defeated 4-1 by Blackburn at Ewood Park. Got £300k from the match as a consolation.

  14. Just lost my last game of the season against Grimsby at home. I needed to beat them to secure promotion, but their victory sends them up. Have to settle for the playoffs...
