  1. Season 5 review League – Winners I won the league at a canter with nobody really putting up any challenge. I ended up finishing 35 points ahead of Celtic and won the league fairly comfortably in the end. I only lost 2 games throughout the season. Ended up scoring 127 goals, conceding 31 and finishing with a points tally of 104 and a GD of 96. Interestingly enough Celtic had an abysmal season and finished 3rd behind St Johnstone. Moment to remember – Beating Celtic 2-1 at there place to clinch the title. Moment to forget – Getting beat 2-3 by Celtic at their place in the 1st old firm game of the season Scottish Cup – Winners I retained the cup but to be honest I had a pretty easy run. I beat Ayr, East Kilbride, Motherwell and Hamilton on my way to the final scoring 12 goals and conceding none. In the final I met Partick Thistle whom I beat 31 to win the cup for the second season in a row. Betfred cup – Winners A fairly easy cup comp for me beating Dundee, St Johnstone and Dundee Utd to get to the final. I met Celtic in the final and beat them 4-3 in the final to pick up my 1st piece of silverware for the season. Champions League – Knocked out in group stage I beat RB Salzburg 3-1 on aggregate in the playoff to reach the group stages. I was drawn along side Juventus, Leverkusen and FC Kobenhavn. Juventus thumped me 4-0 & 3-1 in the games against them. Leverkusen beat me 3-2 at Ibrox and we drew 4-4 at their ground. I managed to beat Kobenhavn 7-0 & 3-2 to finish 3rd in the group and drop into the Euro cup. Euro cup – Runners up On my way to the final I was drawn against some pretty tough opposition and thought I’d be knocked out at every stage. In the 1st knockout round I beat Olympique Lyon 4-1 & 2-1. In the 2nd knockout round I was drawn against Port whom I beat 3-1 & drew 2-2 with. In the ¼ final I beat Gelsenkirchen 3-0 & 3-1. Onto the semi final where I faced Barcelona’s conquerors Napoli whom I managed to beat 7-4, at there ground and 1-0 at Ibrox. In the final I face man city as was resoundly beaten 4-1 Transfers in – I brought in around five 4* & 5* young regens to bolster my squad. Many of them i was hoping to integrate into the squad over a few seasons but they turned out so good they are 1st team regulars now. Transfers out – I mainly got rid of my backup players so that I could try and bring through some of my young Scottish regens. The only big transfer was my 20 YO 5* home grown regen CB joining Barcelona for £30mill in the January window. Top 3 Players – 1. Joaquin Ardaiz (regen) – 1st season at the club and quickly established himself as my 1st choice striker. In 24 appearances he scored 24 goals, assisted in 12 for an overall average rating of 7.57 2. Roger – He’s getting on at 31 YO now but still producing the goods even though he’s not a 1st choice striker anymore. In 35 appearances he scored 32 goals, set up 19 for an overall average of 7.51 3. Ramiro Guiilenea (regen) – The AML was brought in as a long term replacement for Jamie Walker. However when given his chance he grabbed it with both hands and quickly established himself as my main AML. In 31 appearances he scored 13 goals and set up 18 for an overall average rating of 7.40 Goals for next season – I hope to retain my domestic supremacy and sweep all before me. I’m hoping with the young stars blossoming I might have an outside chance at a European trophy, Upcoming transfers in – A young RB from Ajax to finally replace Tavernier and a pretty good looking regen from Morton who cost me £7.5m Upcoming transfers out – Not many I don’t think. I’ll probably get rid of a few backup players and promote some youth but nothing to drastic though.
  2. Season 4 review League – Winners I ended up finishing 19 points ahead of Celtic and won the league fairly comfortably in the end. I only lost 2 games throughout the season. Ended up scoring 128 goals, conceding 28 and finishing with a points tally of 100 and a GD of 100. Moment to remember – Beating Motherwell 8-0 at Ibrox Moment to forget – Getting beat 1-2 by Celtic at their place on the last game of the season Scottish Cup – Winners Regained the cup but to be fair I had fairly easy run. The run was composed of Dumbarton, Kilmarnock, Hearts, Ayr & Falkirk (who I beat on pens after a 1-1 draw after extra time) Betfred cup – 2nd round exit Beat at the 1st hurdle by Partick Thistle. I lost 1-2 at their ground and could have blamed the result on playing my un-matchfit backups but tbf the players I put out should have dealt with this game comfortably. The only consolation is that Partick won the thing in the end. Champions League – 1st knockout round Sadly the heroics of last season were not to be repeated. I beat SK Rapid Wien 5-0 on aggregate in the champions playoff round. I was optimistic, especially after last seasons group draw, to be drawn against Arsenal, RBL & CSKA Moscow. I lost the first 2 games against Arsenal & RBL home and away respectively. I thought that was me done for but I ended up wining the next 4 games on the spin to finish second behind RBL with Arsenal finishing 3rd on the same points as me and RBL but presumably going out on GD or head to head or however its worked out these days. I was drawn against Man Untd in the 1st knockout round and thought id give a good account of myself but was done 3-11 on aggregate with them beating me 7-1 at Ibrox. Transfers in – Nothing of note really in the summer but James ward-Prowse & Barrie McKay on the last day of the January window for a combined 16.9 million. Transfers out – A fairly quiet summer window for me surprisingly. I expected a few enquiries of my top players after our CL exploits but none materialised. The Jan window was different however as 2 1st team regulars left for offers I felt were 2 good to turn down. 1st was Fabio Cardosso to AS Monaco for £15 mill (he’s still young at only 27 but I have 4 5* potential young home grown & home trained Scottish CB’s who are already in the 1st team squad and gaining caps for Scotland). Next to go was Pablo Hervais to Athletic Bilbao for £20mill. This was a decision I took a bit off time over as he is only 28 and I feel he has some good years ahead of him. £20 mill for a winger in the SPL, when I looked at it objectively, is way too much to turn down. I also want to try and introduce a few home grown and home trained mids next season so off he went. Top 3 Players – 1. Roger – yet another great season, I’ll look to play him when needed most next season and let the young 5* boys shine – 37 appearances resulting in 43 goals and 16 assists for an average rating of 8.14 – 7 goals & 7 assists in the CL 2. Jamie walker –36 appearances resulting in 11 goals & 15 assists for an average rating of 7.51 3. I cant really pick put a stand out 3rd players all the players were rotated regularly and performed when needed so this goes to the team as a whole. Goals for next season – More of the same hopefully but try to give my young 5* potential, and generally 2 ½ to 3* ability, home grown & trained players more 1st team action. Upcoming transfers in – A few frees to upgrade my squad options but no one of note really. Upcoming transfers out – A few squad players who I think I can get decent money for so that I can free up space for my youngsters.
  3. Just finished season 3 and it was quite simply fantastic. Season 3 review League – Winners I ended up finishing 14 points ahead of Celtic and won the league fairly comfortably in the end. I only lost 2 games throughout the season. Ended up scoring 130 goals, conceding 30 and finishing with a points tally of 100 and a GD of 100. Moment to remember – Beating Hibs 9-0 at Ibrox Moment to forget – Getting beat 0-1 by Celtic at their place Scottish Cup – Semi-Final A decent run but Celtic put me out after extra time 2-1 in the Semi-final. Betfred cup – Semi-final My run ended in the semi-final after getting beat 1-3 by Hibs in extra time Champions League – Semi-Final My 1st foray into the CL went beyond my wildest dreams. I got through to the group stage fairly easily and got drawn alongside R. Madrid, AC Milan & AS Monaco. I figured I’d just be making up the numbers, but I managed to finish 2nd behind R. Madrid in the group. I knocked out Juventus and Arsenal in the 1st knockout round and the ¼ final respectively. Unfortunately PSG were too good for me in the Semi final and knocked me out 6-3 on Aggregate. Transfers in – Nothing of note really other than a young GK from Juventus who could be my no 1 soon. The rest were mainly just squad players brought in to help give the 1st teamers a break. Transfers out – Other than the usual flurry of young loanee’s I got rid of Andy Halliday for 275k, Windass for 675k and Graham Dorrans for £2m Top 3 Players – 1. Roger – absolute beast in game – 44 appearances resulting in 36 goals and 23 assists for an average rating of 7.67 – 19 goals & 13 assists in the CL 2. Pablo Hervias –44 appearances resulting ion 20 goals & 21 assists for an average rating of 7.67 3. Jamie Bajonas – 45 appearances resulting in 4 goals and 6 assists for an average rating of 7.58 – the goals and assist column are sparse but everything pretty much went through him all season. Goals for next season – More of the same hopefully but an extra step further in the cups hopefully. Although I think I’ll find it difficult to be as successful in the CL again. Upcoming transfers in – A few frees to upgrade my squad options but no one of note really. Upcoming transfers out – Try and get rid of the deadweight and the youths that will never make it.
  4. Barjonas is great. Like RampantFM said i loaned him out for the 1st 2 seasons, to Dunfermline & Kilmarnock. 3rd season and he is a 1st team regular, having replaced Dorrans in my midfield. Aidan Wilson is turning out OK on my save but i got 2 5* youngsters in the 1st youth intake so think he'll only ever be backup in my save. I don't know if his CA/PA is random but Danny Finlayson is turning out great in my save also. I loaned him out 1st two season and in my 3rd season he is now in the 1st team, 3* ability & 5* potential. My 1st season (3rd season) in the CL is turning out great. qualified for the group stages and got drawn alongside Real Madrid, Ac Milan & AS Monaco so though i'd get pumped in all games. it was quite the opposite in fact. the only game i lost was away to Real Madrid and i qualified for the 1st knockout round. I've drawn Juventus though so the run may be about to end.
  5. No worries. thanks for the reply. I just liked the look of the player screenshots.
  6. Do you have a link to it so i can use it in my game?
  7. Just finished season 2 and it was a belter. I managed to do the treble and surpassed all my expectations as I merely thought I’d only be capable of giving Celtic a decent challenge for the league and maybe snatching one of the cups. Season 2 review League – Winners I ended up finishing 8 points ahead of Celtic and won the league fairly comfortably in the end. There was a period around the end of December and beginning of January where I lost a few games and was about 5/6 points behind Celtic and thought I’d blown my chance. Celtic however went on a pretty horrendous result from mid-March winning only 4 games & drawing twice in 10 games. Thus t Moment to remember – Beating Celtic 4-2 at Parkhead Moment to forget – Getting beat 0-1 by Partick Thistle at there ground and being relieved they only beat me by 1 goal Scottish Cup – Winners A great win for my 1st piece of silverware. I beat Dundee 4-2 after extra time in the final but generally had a pretty easy run only facing Ros county, Kilmarnock, Morton & Dunfermline to get to the final. Betfred cup – Winners My 1st piece of silverware for the season beating Queen of the south 5-0 in the final. Best moment had to be beating Celtic 4-2 in the semi final though. I had a scary moment in the 2nd round mind when ross county took me to extra time which I ended up winning 5-3. Pumped Kilmarnock 3-0 in the ¼ final. Europa league – Group stage I had a fairly easy path to the group stage having to overcome Vojvodina, PAOK and young boys to reach the group stage. In the groups I was drawn alongside Valencia, Club Brugge & Rijeka. I won all 3 home games but lost all 3 away games meaning I finished 3rd on 9 points. Club Brugge also finished on 9 but finished second due to superior GD or head to head record (not sure which they use anymore). Transfers in – quite a few as I decided to upgrade the squad and add more quality to the depth of the squad. Transfers out – Quite a few 1st team regulars went as I felt the offers for them were too good to turn down. Along with the usual outpouring of youngsters on loan. Top 3 Players – 1. Roger – absolute beast in game – 36 appearances resulting in 32 goals and 19 assists for an average rating of 7.78 2. Pablo Hervias – great replacement for Candeias – 47 appearances resulting ion 13 goals & 17 assists for an average rating of 7.49 3. Marco Djuricin – 32 appearances resulting in 28 goals and 8 assists for an average rating of 7.65 Goals for next season – Retain the title and try to somehow manage to get to the group stages of the champions league Upcoming transfers in – None. I feel I have a really strong squad that should be even better after a year together so unless I get some offers that I feel are too good to refuse. I aim to try to start blending my star youngsters into the 1st team this season so that they are ready to take over from a few aging players in season 3 Upcoming transfers out – I plan on offloading the youths that have no chance of ever making the 1st team. I may also move on a few of the 32+ year olds if I feel I can get a good deal and the squad can cope without them so that my young 5* potential players can be the backups.
  8. As always I’ve decided to start my 1st proper game on FM with my team Glasgow Rangers. Before I realised this thread existed I made a thread of my own. Here’s the link for those interested in a bit more background to the club. Season 1 review League – Runners up I was top for most of the season but a slew of injuries toward the end of the season, most notably Tavernier from march for 3-4 months, undone my good early work. I ultimately fell short of Celtic by 2 points finishing on 85 points, having scored 22 goals more than them but conceding 18 more also. Moment to remember – Beating Celtic 4-0 at Ibrox Moment to forget – Getting beat 6-2 by Celtic at Parkhead which ultimately cost me the league Scottish Cup – Winners A great win for my 1st piece of silverware. I beat thistle 4-0 in the final but the best moment was demolishing Celtic 5-1 at home in the ¼ finals. Betfred cup – ¼ finals Fairly short run in this comp. beat Accies in the 2nd round but went out to Celtic 3-2 after extra time in the quarters. Europa league – 3rd qualifying round Beat my 1st opponents Folgorne (me neither) 20-0 on aggregate. After that Slovan Bratislava were put aside 5-1 on aggregate. I then faced Everton in the 3rd qualifying round. I lost 2-1 on 1st away leg which I thought gave me a good platform for the 2nd leg at home. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be as the home game finished 0-0. Transfers in – Jamie walker 1.7m – was the most important arrival for me not only boosting my Scottish contingent but providing a great update on quality on my left wing. Transfers out – No one of note really. Only Niko Kranjcar for 160K as I felt he was well past his best and on too much money. Top 3 Players – 1. Alfredo Morelos – absolute beast in game – 35 appearances resulting in 30 goals and 15 assists for an average rating of 7.91 2. Jamie Walker – integral to my success – 38 appearances resulting ion 16 goals & 18 assists for an average rating of 7.38 3. Eduardo Herrera – 34 appearances resulting in 32 goals and 12 assists for an average rating of 7.97 Goals for next season – Obviously I ned to try and knock Celtic of the proverbial perch. Other than that I’m hoping to at least get to the group stages of the Europa league (or whatever guff the call the Uefa cup now) Upcoming transfers in – Adrian Semper – Great young keeper who should be fighting it out with my new no 1 (se below) for many years Sam Johnstone – Coming in on a free and in my opinion a definite upgrade on Foderingham Adam Hammil – Can cover either wing but will most likely be used against the so called ‘weaker’ teams. Marco Djuricin – looks like a great player for this league and am surprised I got him really. Should score a shed load in the SPL. Upcoming transfers out – Not sure yet but need to get rid of some players as my wages budget has been destroyed with the new players coming in
  9. any word from a mod about merging this thread with the other Gers thread. the other thread isn't exactly a team thread more of a quick question. i think with this at the start it could generate a lot more interest in Glasgow rangers. plus one page on the other seems to be taken up with one guy clearly exploiting some bug.
  10. If possible that would be good. assuming the other threads creator is OK with that.
  11. Bugger. i looked at the links thread and didnt see it on there. my bad. can a mod please delete this thread/threads?
