  1. Carabali looks like a beast. I love him. Söyüncü definitely one of those players who left Freiburg too earls for his own good. Nice to seem him back and performing (although I see despite all his years of experience, he still kept his rather low stats in decision). Leverkusen having a weak season, or even two, seems totally legit and possible to me. They have the money, but one of their main themes has always been that they underperform almost every year, despite their talented squads. Hamburg and Bremen both relegated is a big thrashing and an apocalypse for Northern Germany, though.
  2. What's your league position now? You should be still 2nd after all these decent results, no?
  3. This is an awesome story. I couldn't stop reading. Thanks for the incredible journey. It took me a while until I realized that the subheadlines in bold are hiding links to pictures, though. Little fun fact: I stumbled over your guy Doel Bonsu, thinking "wait a minute... I know that name!". Turns out, he's a young talent from my Racing Strasbourg save which I am managing on and off. Never thought I'd see his name turn up in a different save!
  4. Gutted to read about the early end of your Europa League dreams, but what a nice Bundesliga season so far! And those young guys look stunning. (Also: Bundesliga table looks much more realistic this year. Apart from Mainz of course, but that's part of the fun of this whole What-If? I just don't really like it if everything is turned upside down, and the big guns are struggling against relegation, while all the small clubs are up there. That's a bit too much to believe in...)
  5. The "Achim-Stocker-Stadium" warms my heart as SC Freiburg fan. Great season! Go and rock Europe! (The Bundesliga podium looks extremely weird, though. Although you explained the upward trajectory of Mainz. How is Hannover up there? Did they get extensive investor money?)
  6. Oh! Wow! I haven't been active here for a few weeks, I totally missed this! That's brilliant stuff. By some weird coincidence, I also happen to be a very close follower of Monaco, and was very disappointed with real-life Tielemans, but to think that you got him to join Freiburg is still kind of cool. Also: You got Maxi Philipp back! The guy was a fan favorite in Freiburg before he left for Dortmund to pursue his career there. Good to see that you were able to keep Günter and Petersen still at the club.
  7. Thanks, man! Very interesting stuff. Sulu still active with 36 years... Lots of new people, but Stark, Jones and Kamavuaka still on board. And Terodde and Zoller as new additions for the attack. Can't really see that happening, but you never know...
  8. Ha, and together with Darmstadt! Loving it, congratulations, and all the best for staying up! Would you mind showing me the squad of SV Darmstadt to see how they developed after 5 seasons? (Wouldn't mind taking a look at your promoted squad as well...)
  9. Haven't started a save with them, but there's some cracking talent in the Lyon squad. Enjoy!
  10. I started a save with Eintracht Frankfurt a few days back. Bit of a challenge, because the real team is high-flying in the Bundesliga and rocking their group in the Europa League, and it might be a bit tough to recreate that in FM19. Frankfurt has a wonderful attacking line with the likes of Haller, Rebic and Jovic. I hope to see some goals. As I switched on almost every nation, the game is moving forward rather slowly, I just finished the season preparation. Will keep you posted.
  11. Yeah, sorry, the post was written when the score stood still at 0-0. Still, I it was a good fight.
  12. Well, let's say the "real" OM just shows us FM19 managers how to set up a good and competitive match against PSG. Cracking game so far...
