  1. Whats your great ever FM Save?

    My time with RWS Bruxelles was pretty epic and for me the save tumbled when I left there, I just lost interest. Hoped to go back there but it never materialised. Had a great game with Perugia back on FM08 which had a decade of dominance and saw me sign Messi, Ramos and a few other huge stars but the first name on the team sheet was Davis Omar my Tanzanian midfielder. Ran the show
  2. The 8th Annual FMCU Awards - Awards Night

    Some deserved winners here, I've been off the grid since fifa dropped so didnt get a chance to vote. Congrats to the winners and thanks for the votes sent my way
  3. Just caught up, absolute scenes in Europe and a great shot at making the last 8. Top of the league as well, this is shaping up to be some season
  4. Norwich City

    3 players out permanently none of them for huge fees but with Jarvis in particular managed to shave some excess off the wage bill. Vrancic probably will go permanently end of the year if I can find a buyer and I will not be renewing Trybull's contract at the end of the season. Poyet and Maddison will hopefully improve with some regular football. Just one player arriving in the window and just on loan, Cook will add a bit more steel to the middle of the park. Continue to dominate the Championship although in the FA Cup our first test against a Premier League side saw us crash out which suggests the gulf between the leagues could be bigger than I thought considering Swansea have been very poor this year
  5. tough draw against Atletico, hopefully Kilday will bang them in and see you through
  6. heartbreak in Europe, gutted for you
  7. Norwich City

    Our great start continues thanks to our front 3 being quite prolific. Middlesbrough did however get the better of us in the league and the league cup so our run comes to the end and we miss out on a trip to Anfield. The injuries are starting to add up now with Gunn, Oliveira, Watkins, Hoolahan and Murphy all on the sidelines. We have built a solid lead already from Wolves in 2nd and a 12 point lead from the play offs and we aren't even at the halfway point yet
  8. Norwich City

    Its been an absolute goal fest so far! Couple of games we have got quite lucky with the Reading and the Hull games springing to mind. The Villa game was amazing, Oliveira putting 5 past them, shockingly he isn't top scorer in the league with Boro's Jordan Rhodes having bagged 14 already. We are sitting just behind Boro so far but we do have game in hand. Our old rivals Ipswich lurking outside play offs, would be good if they can kick on as we have a great chance of going up this season on our current form and would be great to continue this rivalry. With wins against Grimsby and then Ipswich (again!) it sees us enter the 4th round and a tough game against Boro. We have home advantage and thus a great shot at getting into the last 8!
  9. Norwich City

    With my last save over I was looking for a game to mess around for a few months whilst I wait for FM18. I have downloaded the latest update for the transfers and right teams for 17/18 season. 3 players in, Diego Poyet looks like he could eventually develop into a tidy player but I don't expect him to feature much this season. The two others arrive on loan and should be about the first season Llorente is a decent holding midfielder and will compete with Mulumbu/Tettey for that spot and Lopes is more attacking minded and will probably compete with Hoolahan for a starting berth. With our strength being in the middle of the park I am going with a 4-3-3 that served me well when I was at Atletico Alianza

    A great result to end a perfect season and with that my short tenure with Barcelona is over, I haven't really enjoyed this save since leaving my beloved RWS Bruxelles so this is probably the end, I have resigned my post but not retired just in case I decide to revisit this
  11. R.W.S Bruxelles

    Yeah I was quite pleased with how it went, I am enjoying the game at the moment but I am starting to get bored, I think if I win the Champions League I may well resign. I think the only thing left to achieve is International success so after World Cup 46 I might see what jobs become free. League has been pretty easy so far, despite getting beat by Real Madrid 3-1 recently we are still way out in front as they had a horrendous start. We qualified from our Champions League group with ease and were drawn with Arsenal, they are having a bad season in the Prem sitting 9th having recently sacked Buchanan. A few surprise qualifiers in the latter stages with Kobenhavn and Malmo making the last 16. We are all set for another final appearance in the Copa Del Rey, we edged past Real Madrid in the quarters and we hammered Ponferrada in the first leg. Award season We have 3 players in the team of the year and 4 of my former players make the XI with Gargano from Bruxelles and 3 Southampton players. Alberca has been in sensational form since completing his £68M move from Chelsea scoring 36 goals in just 31 appearances. My old team got a financial windfall as one of my last signings went for 3 figures to Southampton. A lot of the squad I assembled have left now with only a few of my old boys still there with a few of them close to retirement. Just one transfer in the window as I snapped up this Iranian youngster for £110,000 after he was touted to me by his agent, he has joined the B team as I do not have any more non-eu spots left in the first team, may well send him out on loan next season to get him some good football

    Transfer window was spent mainly thinning the squad out. With us playing only 1 up top and Edmar and Dietl both scored a fair few goals but neither was that consistent and I was given the opportunity to signing one of the top strikers in the game at the moment so I snapped him up. Alberca is the top striker I snapped up, I signed him as a teenager for Bruxelles but after I left Chelsea snapped him up. He was put on the transfer list by request and I reckon £65M could end up still being a bargain World class player on a free transfer, yes please. Has been at Bayern all his career so was surprised when they let him go. I am well stocked at left back already but he can also play left midfield which came in handy. I've got a few right wingers who are decent but I feel Pereira could be a genuine world class winger, I signed him at Southampton and I am happy to have him on board. Think my director of football arranged this transfer before his contract ran up as I couldn't remember approaching him. Looks a decent prospect and have sent him on loan in Belgium to aid his development. After a shaky first leg, 2nd leg insert Alberca for his debut and a 4 goal haul.

    We could only manage a 0-0 draw away to Ponferrada but it was enough to see us snag the title on goal difference. Looking forward to more battles with Real in the future. Double completed! Now onto the big one, Champions League final against PSG Sadly the treble wasn't to be as PSG were too good for us, reminded me of my first Champions League final with Bruxelles when I lost to them again. It was a familiar face who put us to the sword as my old playmaker Gargano struck twice to see us off. He has had quite the career Missing out on the Champions League was disappointing, definitely will e staying here next season too.

    A big win at the Camp Nou was enough for us to go through and revenge was had! Knocked out Real Madrid in the semi finals of the Copa Del Rey and a win against them in the league sees us take the lead as we head into the final stages with a legit shot at the treble Bayern is a tough draw but not the worst one we could of had. Also didn't realise this but Buchanan who replaced me at Bruxelles left to join Arsenal so Atletico Madrid manager Leandro Silva joins my old club
