  1. Scott Williams End of Decade Review 2030 - 2039 It was a decade filled with many highs and lows for Scott. He added 10 more trophies towards the challenge but missed out on a few of the big ones. Club Football To start off Scott headed to England to take charge at AFC Bournemouth. At this point they were a side pushing for Europe and doing well in the FA Cup, reaching 2 finals. Sadly for Scott he couldn't take them any further and in December of his second year, resigned before the board had a chance to fire him. Next up was a trip to Italy with AC Milan, Scott took over a side that had been successful in the Europa League but struggled in the Serie A. In his first season he got them up to 2nd place losing out to rivals Inter. The following year Milan rinsed the legaue, finishing unbeaten on 100 points, that year they also won the Copa Italia but were knocked out in the semi final of the Champions League to Benfica who went on to lift the trophy. After a successful spell in Italy the opportunity to head back to England arose when Nuno Esperito Santo got the sack at Chelsea. Chelsea had Arguably the best ST and CB in the world and the resources to build an unstoppable force. That is exactly what Scott did. In 4 seasons Scott won 3 League titles, 2 Champions Leagues, 1 FA Cup, 1 League Cup and 1 Super Cup. His big regret, however will be that Club World Cup final defeat to Barcelona, after beating them in the UCL final 6 months prior. With nothing else to win and 2 more years until the next CWC, Scott left Chelsea to head out of Europe and return to South Korea. A second place in the league and an FA Cup win puts him in a good position to add more trophies to the collection at the start of the next decade. International Football The thirtees saw Scott rack up some serious air miles as he managed a side in every continent. In Afirca he brought success to Guinea Bissau who lifted their first ever AFCON trophy. In Europe Scott's portugal lifted the European Championship having won it 4 years earlier as well. Portugal was also where Scott picked up the worlds worst losers medal as he lost the World Cup Final to Holland in a match dominated by the Portuguese. In North America, Mexico won the second of four straight Gold Cups and also picked up the Nations League for good measure. Mexico came third in the Copa America and so it seemed sensible to head to South America next to world number ones Brazil. With the world cup just around the corner this should have been an excellent chance for Scott to forget about the pain of '34. Unfortunately only more pain was added as Brazil crashed out to Ukraine in the second round. Sacked and he didn't event get a chance at the Copa America. Finally to asia, where more heartbreak was lying in wait. Scott's Iran lost on penalties to Australia in the Asian Nations Cup. With the best player retiring from International football, the chance of winning it in 2043 look bleak but with no other option, at the moment that is where Scott will stay. Team of the Decade It's hard to justify not having a full team made up of Chelsea players. They were simply unbelievably good. Big Bad Vlad (Vladimir Petrovic), stands out as the player of the save at the moment and he'll take some topping. He was signed while Scott was at Bournemouth and has stayed with him for most of the decade, sadly not making the journey with him to South Korea. It's worth noting that both at AC Milan and Chelsea, Scott played with wingers, the depth in midfield this decade was so strong that none of them made it into the team. It is hardly surpising how good Chelsea were, they had the funds to buy whoever Scott wanted and he spent £850m in 4 years. However, just like in real life they had a reserves packed out with players worth millions of pounds. In fact, Scott's net spend was -£393Million (£393million profit). The Fourtees Still lots for Scott to achieve. First up he will be looking to leave Asian club football behind him and return back to Europe to try and topple PSG off their Parisian Perch. Hopefully this will be the decade that sees Scott lift the World Cup, it won't be in '42 as he'll probably still be with Iran but maybe an Argentina, France or Spain will be looking for a new manager for the '46 WC.

  2. @vikeologist Yeah the chairman over there are savage. Thankfully it looks like I've got another season otherwise it could be time to head to China
  3. Scott Willimams 2039 End of Season Review The first full season for Scott in South Korea. He had 9 games at the end of last season to push for a Champions League place but the other teams didn't drop enough points to catch. So this season it was jusy the FA Cup and the League to compete in. The board had set the target of winning them both, having finished last season in 4th and knocked out of the Cup in round 2 that wasn't going to be easy. The FA Cup was won without too much bother, the final was only 1-0 on aggregate over the two legs but it was a match dominated by Seoul. The league was proving to be more of a challenge, Seoul and Jeonbuk traded places a few times over the course of the season. Every match between the two ended in a draw and ultimately that is what cost Scott. Two of the games ended 0-0 the other two Seoul were ahead and Jeonbuk managed to draw level. Seoul ended the league on 90 points (enough to win in each of the last 5 seasons), Jeonbuk also ended the league on 90 points, however they were crowned champions on Goals Scored. Jeonbuk did go unbeaten this season and so perhaps were worthy winners but that doesn't mean much for Scott. Scott also had a board meeting to discuss his dissapointing performance in the league (apparently losing the league by 19 goals is not good enough in South Korea) but thankfully they've allowed him the next 5 games to get 11 points. So don't know if that's at the start of next season or if they'll just forget about that when the league starts up again. Ultimately the decade ends in dissapointment, losing the Asian Cup final and coming second in the league, hopefully the 2040s can start with an AFC Champions League and K League 1 double. Sadly Hernan Delgado will unlikely stay with Seoul for another season. He was signed on loan from Arsenal when last years main man wanted out. 24 goals in all competitions in his debut season at 19 years old was a strong performance, but he is far too good for the legaue. Career Progress
  4. Scott Williams 2039 Asian Cup Iran After the shocking World Cup performance with Brazil, The first (real) opportunity to manage an Asian national side came up. The two options were Iran or Japan. Iran had a much better side with a number of players featuring in Europe's top 5 leagues. With 6 months in charge before the Asian Cup started there wasn't long to get to know his best team. Group Stage Iran 4 - 0 Malaysia Iran 2 - 2 China Iran 12 - 0 Kyrgyzstan Second Round Quarter Final Semi Final Final In club football Scott has made the return to South Korea with FC Seoul, Scott couldn't quite close the gap on the AFC Champions League places in the 8 games he had in charge so will be staying in Korea for at least the next couple of years. Annoyingly Suwon (the side that sacked Scott after 60 something days) managed to dethrown Jeonbuk who had won 13 out of the last 15 league campaigns. Lots of money for Scott so this season should be a competetive one.
  5. Scott Williams 2038 World Cup Third attempt at the World Cup, this time Scott is in charge of the world number 1. It was a good reunion in the group as Scott's Brazil were joined by former teams Nigeria and Russia. Two wins and onto the second round. Second Round Third Round Quarter Final Semi Final Final
  6. Scott Williams 2037/38 End of Season Review Chelsea FC Recap: This was Scott's fourth season in with Chelsea. He had already won the league and Champions League but had failed to win either of the Cups. Either way this was to be his last year at the club. I'll keep this short as I've had enough of managing in England. Basically we won everything this year. Won the league after 30 games and started to lose once the reserves started featuring. The League Cup was won against Brighton. FA Cup against Derby and UCL against Inter. The World Cup is this summer with Brazil. After that will be looking to move away from Europe to either North America or Asia. Need a bit more of a challenge after the joke of a team that Chelsea had.

  7. Scott Williams 2036/37 End of Season Review Chelsea FC League Table | UCL Tree | Transfers With the leaue won in Scott's first season with Chelsea all the focuse was on the UCL and Cups. It turns out that when you don't try to win a competition you actually do quite well. Scott rested key players in league matches when there were cup ganes the same week or UCL fixtures mid week. A lot of the younger players developed really well and Chelsea won the league on the final day so that's 2 in 3 seasons at Chelsea. The cups weren't so good. For the third year running Chelsea were knocked out by Spurs in the Carabao Cup this season in the Quarters. In the FA Cup Wolves beat Chelsea in R4. The first knockout round of the Champions League had proved to be Chelsea's undoing in the last two seasons, so for Scott to go all the way and win it this season was a bit of a surprise. The group was made up of Porto, RB Leipzig and Sofia. The run to the final was certainly one of the hardest. PSG (4-3), Bayern Munich (4-0), Arsenal (4-2) and them Barcelona in the final (3-1). Winning the UCL meant that Chelsea qualified for the Club World Cup that summer which they also managed to get to the final of after beating Celtic and Schalke. In the final Chelsea were once again met by Barca. This time however Barca won 2-1. Next Season Since there are still two cup competitions that Scott hasn't won in England so he'll be staying another year. Also there weren't really any decent club jobs worth applying for. Not sure if already mentined but he's now left Mexico and in charge of Brazil. Scott has also made it onto the Hall of Fame and is in 15th place and finally taken top spot off of Benni McCarthy (Managed Sundowns while Scott was at K.Chiefs and has sinced managed PSV, Porto, PSG and United) in the RSA HoF.
  8. @vikeologist any rules on North American teams winning the Copa America. Every other year it has been the Mexico and USA B teams that have been entered but now i'm managing Mexico its just the first team
  9. Scott Williams 2035/36 Season Review Chelsea FC In all my years of Football Manager, I don't think I've ever seen a script set up so perfectly as this. On a gloomy Saturday Afternoon Scott put on his best suit and headed out to what could be his last game in charge of Chelsea Football Club. The team had been performing well and sat second in the league, they were into the knockout stages of the UCL and into the fifth round of the FA cup with games against Celtic and Aston Villa to decide them. The side had been on a 13 game unbeaten run streching back to December but then March hit. A few of you may recall last season Scott's side were winless in the whole of March, and were knocked out of the UCL and FA cup. Well these things seem to have a habbit of repeating themselves. March madness started with a rare March W against Cardiff. This was followed by a 2-1 FA Cup defeat to Villa at Villa Park, a 3-1 Premier league defeat to Leicester at the King Power. A 0-1 Home defeat to Celtic (0-1 on agg), a 2-5 home defeat to Liverpool and a 2-1 defeat at leeds. Before the leeds game the board decided something needed to be said about this poor run of form. In the end the board required Scott to get 10 points from his next 5 matches. Leeds (A) was the first the next was Bournemouth at home. Scott arived at Stamford Bridge to see the Bournemouth fans waiting in their thousands, far more than would fit in the away end all chanting "Sacked in the morning! You're getting sacked in the morning! Sacked in the morning! You're getting sacked in the morning!" Clearly no love loss from his old side's supporters. The media had dubbed it 'El Sackio' as Scott's opposite number was also in the firing line. Anything but 3 points and that would surely be the end for Scott, even with 3 points it was still a longshot going to both Manchester clubs needing wins. Last season's top scorer, and two time World Golden Ball winner Lopez was on his second 10 games streak without a goal this season. Thankfully he decided to show up against Bournemouth grabbing a first half hatty. 4-1 at HT and that's how it stayed/ Next up in the script was Scott's 100th Chelsea game. A trip up to Old Trafford against the league leaders for the weekends early kick off. Would it be 100 and out? No sir it would not zero in 14 and now in 2. Lopez gets the only goal of the game. 1-0 to Chelsea. 4 points needed. So we've had Scott's old team, his 100th game in charge and so of course the next game in the script should be against a small London club named Arsenal. Another must win top 4 clash. Thankfully just like last year April continued to be successful and Chelsea came away 2-0 victors. 9 down 1 to go The final game of these 5, City away. They've come of the back of 16 wins in a row in all competitions so Scott would have to be able to put and to that. Of course now that we're in April (in game and irl) a win was no problem at all, 1-0, Genin with the only goal just before HT. 12 points out of 10. Scott stays everyone's happy. The final 3 games of the season were all won by chelsea and in the end finished 1 point behind United who dropped points in their 36th and 37th matches but beat Cardiff to secure the title. Hopefully next season Scott can finally win a cup competition in England or make it past the first knockout round of UCL March Madness
  10. Scott Williams Summer of '35 Mexico Gold Cup Review Results | Tree I'll keep this short and to the point. Mexico won the Gold Cup with ease. Across the 5 matches they scored 22 and conceded 2. Scott's first international side, Honduras were beaten in the quarters and USA and Canada in the semis and final respectively. The only thing left to win for Scott is the Nations League and although it's not a requirement the completionist side of Scott wants to win it. So unless an Asian or South American position becomes available he will be continuing the commute from London to Mexico City Personnel Career Clubs Managed: 9 Nations Managed: 6 Trophies Won: 16 Runner Up Medals: 7 Manager of the Year: 6 2022, 2026/27, 2029, 2030, 2033/34, 2034/35 (Winner) | 2020, 2025/26 (Runner up) Number of Sackings: 2 (Kaizer Chiefs, Suwon) Career Earnings: £26.5 Million --------------------------------------------------- International Career Season Nation Rank Continental World Cup Things to Note 2023 Honduras 67th - - Relegated from Nations League 2024 Honduras 72rd - - Qualified for Gold Cup 2025 2024 Russia 42nd - - 2nd in NL Div B 2026 Russia 30th - 2nd Rnd v SUI Topped Group, Lost to Switzerland 2027 Nigeria 12th RU - AFCON Runners Up, Resigned as Manager 2031 Guinea-Bissau 53rd Won AFCON Winners 2032 Portugal 3rd Won - European Championship Winners 2034 Portugal 4th - RU v Holland Unsure how we haven't won that one 2035 Mexico 13th Won Gold Cup Winners ----------------------------------------------------- Challenge Progress 4/10 Leagues (Chile; Curico Unido 2022, Argentina; Velez 2028/29, Italy; AC Milan 2033/34, England; Chelsea 2034/35) 4/10 Cups (Copa Chile; Curico Unido 2022, RSA Telkom KO; Kaizer Chiefs 2025/26, Copa Argentina; Velez 2028 Copa Italia; AC Milan 2033/34) 2/5 Continental (Africa; Kaizer Chiefs 2026/27, South America; Velez 2029) 0/1 Worlds 3/5 Continental (AFCON; Guinea-Bissau 2031, EUROS; Portugal 2032, GOLD CUP; Mexico 2035) 0/1 Worlds Total 13/32
  11. Scott Williams 2034/35 End of Season Review Chelsea FC League Table | Results 1 2 3 | Transfers Second season for Scott back in England this time with Chelsea. Safe to say it has gone a lot better for him than his time at Bournemouth (who are now reaping the rewards of Scott's recruitment). The board set some lucrative expectations. Reach the final of the FA Cup and Champions League and finish top 4. Considering they finished 5th last year and weren't in the UCL it was going to be tough. Especially when Chelsea drew Spurs in R3 of the cup and City in R4. Scott managed to get past both of them but somehow were undone by the eventual runners up of the Championship; Cardiff City. In the UCL Ajax, Sevilla and Galatasaray stood in the way of the knockout stages, Chelsea went unbeaten and topped the group. In the first knockout round they were drawn against Napoli. Top of the Serie A and unbeaten in the league at that point. The first leg was away from home. Napoli took the lead but then got a man sent off. Chelsea too advantage and went into the home leg with a 2-1 lead. At home Napoli, clearly upset to have finally lost at home came out with a point to prove and led 3-0 after 16 minutes. Lopez got one back and so at HT the score was 1-3 (3-4 on agg). Napoli got a fourth and looked to have put the game to bed. Both Chelsea strikers had other ideas, scorer back to back to bring it back to 3-4 on the night. Napoli weren't finished scoring and got a 5th all these second half goals coming in the space of 10 minutes. Lopez managed to score again just before the 70th minute. With plenty of time to grap another. Unfortuantely Chelsea couldn's and so the mathc finished 6-6 on aggregate, with Napoli going through on away goals. So that just left the league. Spurs and United had dominated the league for the last 7 years and continued to do so at the start of this season. In amongst them though were Chelsea. Eventually Spurs and Chelsea broke away with Chelsea leading at the end of Feb. A disastorous March followed, where Scott's men didn't win a single game and saw Spurs move into first. After that Chelsea went on 6 game win streak as Spurs dropped points. With two games remaining Chelsea were 6 points clear and 9 ahead on goal difference meaning the league was all but won. A point away at Wolves and the job was done. Chelsea's first league title since the 2016/17 season Next Season There is still plenty to win here in England including the Champions League, the squad is exceptionally good and after last seasons stinginess (had £330 million in the bank and the board gave a budget of £50 million with a 30% reventue retention) the board have given Scott £188 million to play with. There aren't many GOOD english players at the club, with space for 5 more to be registered and with Arsenal and CIty finishing outside the top 7 it may be a goo chance to snap up some of their players. After last summers World Cup dissapointment, Scott has left Portugal and taken the reigns at Mexico, other options were Brazil, Argentina and USA but with the Gold Cup happening this summer, Mexico looked the best option.

  12. Scott Williams World Cup 2034 Review Portugal World Cup? More like World cUPSET. The number of upsets that happened this World Cup was beyond belief. Portugal's group was one of the easier consisiting of Canada and Thailand. A 4-0 and a 5-0 saw them comfortably make it into the second round. In the second round Portugal breezed past Ecuador with a 5-1 victory. Other countries weren't so prolific. The second round saw France lose to Japan, Germany lost to Chile, Beligum were knocked out by Peru, Spain said goodbye after losing 2-1 to Scotland. Ireland got the better of Argentina. Everywhere you looked there was a big side being knocked out by a minnow. Suddenly in the third round the only sides left that looked like winning it were Holland, England, Portugal and Brazil. In the third round Scott's Portugal were up against Serbia, a game which shouldn't have caused too much drama but Scott had to wait until the 72nd minute until they broke the deadlock, a penalty later on secured the victroy. Elsewhere England were knocke out by Romania to continue the upset theme. Quarter Final time! Made up of sides very few would have predicted; South Korea, Peru, Ireland, Scotland, Romania, Costa Rica all still in with a shout of the main prize. Portugal managed to avoid all of these teams as the draw saw them up against the small nation of Brazil. Protgual took an early lead when a cross dropped at the feet of the RW Figueiras. Brazil equalised after half time scoring a very similar goal. Thankfully Figueiras was able to grab the winner after running past 3 men and smashin it home from a tight angle. Semi Finals, Holland v Romania, Costa Rica v Portugal. Realistically there was only one outcome for both games. Heartbreak for the other sides. but Holland won 4-0 and Portugal 3-1. So after winning the Euros, Scott had now taken Portugal to the 2034 World Cup Final. 2 years earlier Portugal had beaten Holland 1-0 on their way to European success so confidence was certianly high in the camp. Looking the stats you would have though Portugal anhiated their opposition. 22 shots 9 on target vs Holland's 8 and 4. 4 Clear cut chances, dominated posession, but stats don't accomodate for mistakes and after 8 minutes Van Steenbergen on Inter Milan ran from his own box past 4 Portugal defenders who decided the World Cup final was the perfect stage to not tackle anyone and slotted home the one on one (Good to see the opposition is still able to score 1v1s). 4 minutes later the two centre midfielders decided to pass it between themselves without any care for what was going on around them. Their CM stepped in took the ball, found Van Steenbergen who floated one up to the back post to an unmarked left winger who volleyed it in. From then on Holland didnt enter the penalty box. Portugal flew shot after shot into the stands or straight at the goalkeeper. Pedro Pillar missed so many efforts in the first half (2 clearcut and 3 others) that Scott subbed him off after 43 minutes. It seems he only scores in Champions League finals and not World Cups. Finally portugal managed to find the back of the net in the 89th minuted but the 20 previous shots that didn't go in certainly cost them. They had enough time for one last chance, a counter attack which resulted in the right winger going fro glory instead of squaring it for a tap in. 2-1 it finished. Scott will be resigning with a plethora of nations to chose from hopefully he'll be able to tick off some other continental competitions before the next world cup.

  13. @vikeologist thanks it's great to be here. Nope you didn't miss anything, went from 9 to 11 this season.
  14. Scott Williams End of Season Review AC Milan 2033/34 Serie A League Table | Results 1 2 What a season it has been for Mr Williams' AC Milan side. Centurians and Invincibles both checked off the list this season. The side that finished second last year didn't need much adding to it, in fact over the 2 and a half years AC Milan's net spend was £17Mil. The on loan GK signed permanently. A couple of RBs came in to replace what was leaving and then a few youngsters joined to bulster the squad. Milan went into the season on the back of a 12 match unbeaten run to finish the last. That means that Milan are now 50 games unbeaten in the Serie A. It was clear to see why, at the halfway stage the club had only conceded 4 goals and had scored 33. Needless to say Milan were ahead from the start and despite pressure from Lazio, never looked like finishing anywhere other than 1st. Cup Competitions Copa Italia | Champions League The form in the league transfered well into the other competitions, winning the Copa Italia and reaching the semifinal of the UCL. In the cup, Milan needed penalties to get passed Sassuolo after the game finished 4-4, and then went on to beat Genoa and Inter Milan (also on pens) before comfortably beating Torino in the final. In the UCL Milan had a tough group of PSG, Sporting Lisbon and Basel. They got off too an average start only winning on of the first 4 and required help from Basel who drew both games against PSG. Luckily Milan were able to finish strongly, winning their final games against PSG and Basel and topped the group. In the first knockout round, Milan faced reigning champions Tottenham. The first leg finished TOT 1 - 2 ACM and the second was 1-1. In the next round Milan faced another English side in Watford who had knocked them out of the Europa League last season. There was no repeat of that this time around as once again the tie finished 3-2 on agg after a first leg 1-2 victory at Watford follwed by a 1-1 draw. Onto the semi final, Milan recieved the easier draw against Benfica, wiht United and Madrid making up the other. This time Milan were drawn at home first and once again got a 2-1 vicotry to take into the second leg. Over in portugal there was nothing short of heartbreak for Scott and his men. Milan took the lead after 5 minutes and were ahead for 6 before benfica drew level. Benfica then scored again in the 71st minute meaning it was going to ET as it stood. If Milan could get another then Benfica would need two to go through. Captain, Leader, Legend in Jean-Christophe Collon stepped up from LB and smashid in a volley, Evra vs Bayern Munich -esque. Unfortunately just like that game benfica went down the other end (admitadely 7 miuntes later) and scored after an error from Milan's RB. then in the 94th minute of Benfica scored their fourth of the night as their own LB smashed in a shot from the edge of the box. And that was that, Milan managed to throw away a first leg lead and an away goal advantage to crash out of the UCL and meant Scott didn't get a chance at a treble. Next Season Scott's contract runs out at the end of the 2033/34 season and he didn't have any intention of signing a new deal unless Milan didn't win the league. After 27 games of the season the Chelsea job became available and so Scott decided to take it. Thankfully everything worked out and Scott won all there is to win in Italy before moving on. Chelsea currently have a few ex Milan players in their ranks and also have the best player in the world up top for them, as long as he doesn't get poached by someone before Scott joins. Chelsea finished 5th in the league just missing out on 4th as they lost to Watford (who finished 4th) on the final day of the season. They will still however be playing Champions League football as they won the Europa League, beating Roma. They haven't won the league since 2016/17 but have 2 FA Cups and 1 Carabao Cup under their belt (since 2019/20). Scott will be earning 3 times as much on £155k p/w and has signed a 3 year deal which should be enough time to win the league.

  15. One of my players was unhappy with his playing time and requested to leave. At the end of the window he was unhappy he didn't get sold. Upon saying "What would it take to keep" he says he "wants to win title's and realistically that won't happen here". This is despite the club being top after 22 games and 10 points clear of second.
