  1. Great win there. Time to take charge of the league!
  2. It’s true. If you can’t crush somebodies dreams or innocently raid a village for hidden talent what’s the point in living.
  3. Sorry. If it makes you feel any better my hopes and dreams were crushed the very next game.
  4. Chelsea (VIR) September 2036 Sweden up first in the National League. We drew Italy and England. Italy up first. I'm not expecting to survive. England beat Italy in the first game. If we can somehow beat Italy then its a big step in surviving. Luckily the Swedish board doesn't care about it so it won't affect my job. 3 changes made from the team who started the Quarters. It showed me I was missing a few better players through injury. I thought we were at home. Its in Italy, we don't stand a chance We gave it a good go! I saw enough to make me think we might stand a chance in the home games. If we can somehow win both of them then I'd like to think that would be enough to survive. We will find out next time. Back to Domestic issues now... More of the same would be lovely. More of the same. A big win and a clean sheet. Still yet to concede a goal. Wasn't expecting it to go this well. We were so close to getting another clean sheet. 3 points it more important though. The table looks like this... We already have a comfortable lead. Hopefully the title can be wrapped up quickly.
  5. Chelsea (VIR) August 2036 August is my favourite month. Football is back and everything is a fresh. As a Mansfield fan its the part of the season filled with hope, I mean it doesn't normally last long but hey hope is good! I'm expecting an easy season again. One year I'll be wrong though right? Say hello to what will be the starting XI for most games until I can get strength at least... Its not great but as I said before I've won leagues with worse. My biggest concern is these are my only strikers and one of them is a AMC! I've had a great start before I've even begun... My best defender isn't happy because of the lack of talent in midfield. I agree with him completely but told him there aren't any players out there (which is true). He didn't like it and said some things he didn't mean, I said some things I didn't mean and now we aren't talking. Do your talking on the pitch Teofilo that's all I ask! This piece of news might seem pointless but its a good sign. Its a Timor-Leste club. More importantly its a club who hasn't won the league before. Just going to point out as well there is no Continental qualification for the US Virgin Islands meaning as soon as the league is in the bag I am free to leave...unless there's an unbeaten season on the line of course! Always good when the first question you get asked before the start of a new season is the state of the pitch. Welcome to the US Virgin Islands! Right finally time to start the season! Don't know what's more impressive. The 5-0 win or the fact that the not a single goal came from the strikers. Finally a goal from a striker number 7 of the year for the team. 2 clean sheets, couldn't have asked for a better start really. Just the one International Call Up. Lets see how much that changes come end of the season. Nice and steady finish to the month. Already top. Title in the bag?
  6. Wow that was a tough start! Tough defeat to Liverpool. They are massively OP in FM this season. Its normally the opposite!
  7. I was just being impatient. I am very much enjoying this still and glad that it didn't bug out! This save will take me to FM20. The save I have planned for FM 20 is so far out my comfort zone
  8. Chelsea (VIR) Preseason 2036 Ok toys have been put back in the pram... It just took a lot longer than I thought it would! Nothing in the cabinet. No cup to play for once again so its all about the league. Its straight forward. 17 teams play each other twice for 32 games. We are one of the favourites which means I'm expecting this to be a fairly straightforward year... ...in fact... I've already queued Montserrat to load. As always first thing first, get some staff in so I can delegate jobs. I'm a very lazy manager. Obviously friendlies have already been organised. Nice to see some old teams. You'll remember them from the British Virgin Islands. Shame the Ballstarz didn't make the trip! Its worth mentioning that I've applied for France, Spain, Italy and England jobs...I mean I didn't get any of them but it was worth mentioning! Despite being named as the Super Stars new manager on no less than 20 occasions he's decided to rejoin me as my assistant manager. I'm hoping this is a relationship I can keep for a while. Well its safe to say I've won leagues with worse teams than this. Doesn't mean I'm not going to try and rinse the Media Dream XI. Amazingly only managed to convince one to join. Looks like I'm going to have to do this with the players I have. I hope this new level of confidence doesn't come back to bite me. I'm going to show this... It shows that the only Timor-Leste team who didn't ask me for an interview was Assalam, a team I can no longer manage. It means the chances of going to Timor-Leste are very very slim at the moment. We need teams to actually hire a new manager and then fire them so we can re-apply. I may need to go around each team in Timor-Leste and create a manager who will resigned straightaway. That or Bakhchysaray will finally give me a second chance! Preseason over and that's a massive won to finish up. Lets get to it!
  9. European Championship 2036 Ok so its Romania in the Second Round. Easily one of the best draws I could have got but it means nothing if we don't win. Portugal get the knockout stages underway with an extra time win. They always seem to be dangerous. Second game second extra time and first shock. Bulgaria power into the Quarter Final as one of the hosts depart. Belgium's golden generation long gone. Italy ensure no more surprises. Simple win. The World Champions are out. Losers. Pinch yourselves. England win...on penalties. I know they did in 2018 WC but still! We are up next. Don't worry I'm not going to do Goal by Goal. Brilliant performance. Was annoyed with the missed penalty at 1-0...but he made up for it 6 minutes later. After complaining about the Strikers they scored all 3 goals and we ease into the Quarter Final. The draw has been made already and I don't fancy our chances. We face the winner of France and Holland. The defending champions are out! Scotland are through. I can dream! The best was saved till last in the Second Round and its Holland we will be taking on! What a game! Glad its Holland, already played France and already been beaten by France. Us, Scotland and Bulgaria with brilliant tournaments. Expect Germany, Italy, Holland and probably Portugal in the Semis I reckon. Good fightback from England but just not enough. Portugal through. First time they have made the Semis since winning it in 2016. Good effort by Bulgaria they gave the Germans a scare but no shocks today. Two more chances for one though. Germany have been knocked out in either the Semi Final or the Second Round since they won it in 2008. Not even a sniff of a shock here. We have Italy in the Nations League and I'm already dreading it. So we take on the hosts led out by none other than Brendan Rodgers. Whatever happens Holland will show good character. A total of 7 players are on Yellows meaning if we do get through it could be a massively depleted team. We silenced the crown in the 12th minute and they even missed a penalty in stoppage time. Its a close game and it still could go either way. Absolutely gutted. We played brilliantly or 86 minutes of this game just lost that concentration. We also had a goal disallowed for offside in the 86th minute which I'm steaming about. Great goal chalked off because somebody was adjudged to be interfering in an offside position. I can't even complain about it in the press conference. Hope Holland go on to lose. I'm very salty. If we had gone through we would have been missing 5 players through suspension! Was expecting to take over Chelsea (VIR) as soon as I was knocked out but must have to wait until the tournament has ended. Portugal continue their excellent tournament, it hasn't been an easy run for them. They will face Germany after an OG broke Italian hearts. Portugal win it and I reckon they deserve it. Tournament over and still no Chelsea (VIR) job. I think I've been bugged out a job. To think I turn down all those Timor-Leste interviews as well. Not going to lie this has left a very bitter taste in my mouth and with all the bugs I've come across and leagues not being correct I'm not sure I want to carry on...
  10. European Championship 2036 Holland and Belgium are the hosts. We are the ranked outsiders. Lets get this over and done with so I can focus on Chelsea (VIR). The World Champions are up first. If this was 2019 I'd fancy my chances. Its 2036 and I don't. We had to come from behind but we more than deserved the win. Great performance and a great start to the tournament. If we beat Denmark not only will we be through but we should get a nice draw in the 2nd Round. But lets not get ahead of ourselves just yet! All the interviews from Timor-Leste are coming in now which isn't good because it means I wont be able to apply for those jobs until they are filled and the manager loses it. We could be waiting on Timor-Leste a while! Denmark is obviously a derby match so it won't be easy! France beat Turkey so if we win we are through to the knockouts. An absolutely brilliant game! A mega start saw us score within seconds but be behind after 7 minutes. We had to wait for the goals but when they came they were great. Svensson (who is easily the best player on the team) finished how he started and sends us through to the knockouts. That's the expectation sorted which means I will be around for the World Cup Qualifiers at least. A nice game against France to finish off the group stage. We need to win it to finish top but to be honest I'm not mega fussed! Its been a while since Sweden were knocked out at the Group Stage. Don't like the luck of that penalty cheese though. As per its the best 4 3rd place teams who make it through to the knockouts. At this point Bosnia and Herzegovina need a miracle with only 1 points and -4 GD. Shout out to Kosovo for making it. Well hold the phone. I don't know what would happen if these too need to be broken. I assume Goals Scored. In that case its advantage Greece. But more than likely both sides will be going home. Scotland also book their place in the next round. Greece and Bosnia continue to sweat. Holland also safely through and would be a dangerous opposition to anybody who tops their Group. England also scraping by! It means Bosnia and Greece are out and the 3rd place will come from our Group. If either team win they are through if its a draw then its Turkey who will scrape through on 1 point thanks to their "better" GD. Personally I don't think it matters if we win or lose this game there isn't going to be an easy draw. No grumbles really with how this went. My biggest concern are the strikers. They aren't doing enough. An 89th minute winner sent Denmark home and the World Champions into the Knockout Stages. Ok I will hold my hands up now and say that is probably the best draw we could have hoped for. Especially when consider France got Holland and Turkey got Germany! The tournament can really heat up now.
  11. The Anguilla and British Virgin Island championships are very important in Sweden obviously
  12. European Championship 2036 I will be playing my friendlies in a shocking change of pace. I have no idea who is good in this team so its vital I at least have a look! Scotland up first, we need to be winning this game if only to build confidence. We are also in the top division in the Nations League... Although probably not for long. Would you look at that...I know it would be skipping ahead of the Crimea and Timor-Leste but at this point beggars can't be choosers. It they don't want me in their country then I'm more than happy to go to the US Virgin Islands! So this is the Sweden team I will be rocking in the Championships. Its not a horrible team. I think we had enough about us to reach the knockouts at least. Then its see what happens. I've missed International Football, not going to lie. Not missed this though. An individual defensive mistake gifted them the equaliser. Too many average or below average performances. More work is needed. Germany next, don't really fancy our chances. 2 more interviews. Chelsea (VIR) are the best team I can take over in the US Virgin Islands and obviously they are called Chelsea, its a no brainer unless somebody from a different country comes at me before the job offer. I don't know how its possibly but we have come out of this game both encouraged and disheartened. We should have at least drawn that game and I'm annoyed we didn't. One more fixture to go into the Euros with at little a shred of confidence. Ukraine are the easier of the 3 friendlies so I beg of you. Win! I won't be able to take over the Chelsea I want to manage so this will do! I've asked not to take over until after the European Championship so I can give it my full attention. We play Turkey and Denmark first finishing up with France. I hope we don't go into the France game needing something! Well we got the win. Do I feel ready? Not really but lets do this!
  13. European Championship 2036 The old European Championship belt from the WWF came up when I googled European Championship so we are 100% rocking with that. It's time for the draw. We are a 4th seed so I imagine it will be tricky. We have the current World Champions Turkey in the draw. And its the current World Champions Turkey we will be playing. Its not a horrible draw. Certainly could have been worse. We will be looking to finish Top 3 and qualify for the Knockout Rounds. The draw in full and there are a few tasty looking games. I have arranged friendlies with Scotland, Germany an Ukraine because I obviously don't like to win.
  14. Unemployment So here we are again. No job. Here is the current state of play. Somalia/Sain Maarten has been completed. I'm still waiting on Bakhcysaray to get their act together and there is plenty to choose from in Timor-Leste in both divisions. If I have to start at the bottom I will. US Virgin Islands are queued up to be loaded once the leagues regenerate. Now only thing left to do is sit back and wait for the interviews to flood in... Assalam officially come off the list. Cuts the number of teams down to 13 with only 3 of them in the top division. Ok i get it! I mean don't we all? Say hello to the US Virgin Islands. Surprised me how many teams are in it. How many have never won the league though? Amazingly only 5 out the 17 have never won the league. Some cracking names. Personal favourites are New and Positive Vibes, True Playerz (the z makes it) and of course Togetherness. My first chance to take over Chelsea as well! I've applied for all 5 jobs. Not much else I can do really. I have a feeling its going to be another season on the sidelines. No action to speak of. All the leagues have started without me and because I've not taken over any club mid season so far I think its safe to say it won't be till May 2036 until we have a new job. I'm going to go on holiday and make a brew! Its not a job I applied for but they wanted me. I had a quick look and couldn't say no. Its not going to be a country I can win the World Cup with or the Euros but its a way back into International Management. I'll take it. The country has just qualified for the Euro's via the Nations League playoffs. They aren't in the best of places but it will be nice to take part in a Major Final then build towards attempting to qualify for the World Cup 2038. The next World Cup will take place in South Africa so at least I have a logo I can use! Looking domestically... Rubin Yalta pick up their 6th straight title. Come on Bakhchysaray come get me! Boavistia have walked the Timor-Leste division, they were out of bounds either way. Both sides at the bottom have won the league so it doesn't mean much to me. True Playerz look to have it in US Virgin Islands with Chelsea being the best out of the teams I can take over. It seems nobody will be removed from the list and hopefully we can get a domestic job.
  15. Super Stars (SXM) May 2035 I'm hoping this post covers literally a few days and one game. This is officially May. But I'm not looking past that Flames United game. Win that and we lift the title 2 days into May. We are going to be losing 2 teams in the Top Division of Timor-Leste. Assalam forever and either DIT or Kablaki were available for me to take over. And odds are they will be replaced by a team who has already won the league. It means there are only going to be 3 teams in the top division who have never won the league. Be interesting to see what the US Virgin Islands throw up. Excellent stuff.
