    World Cup Underdogs

    Iran are really solid. They went through the qualifiers by conceding 5 goals in 18 games.

    England's World Cup 23

    He played one or two games in midfield towards the end of the season. Iirc, the ones against Stoke and Chelsea. Didn't really stand out though. Looks likely that Walker will play RCB with Trippier likely being your first choice at RWB. Alexander-Arnold's passing range is fabulous for someone of his age and personally, I feel he would thrive in that position with Walker covering behind him. Also a decent set piece taker in case England need one.

    I think Alexander-Arnold is only in because of his versatility as he can cover multiple positions. May be a potential backup CM option as well, aside from being backup to Trippier at RWB.

    England's World Cup 23

    Definitely nothing to do with him being shocking in the games he did get.
  5. 7-0. It looks more and more likely that you will do a clean sweep of trophies this season.
  6. That 16 year old right back.
  7. The squad in general looks very decent for the second tier. Great start so far, hopefully you can keep it up.

    Whats your great ever FM Save?

    I have 3 that stand out most: FM11- Took AFC Wimbledon from the BSP to the Premier League, winning 4 promotions in 8 seasons, established them in the Premier League. Managed them there for about 7 seasons where the team became competing regularly for the Europa League spots. Tycoon came in, I finished 6th, wasn't going to be sacked but I lost interest and resigned. FM12- Tried to do forameuss' Tetradecagon Challenge, managed a host of clubs and countries before getting a breakthrough when I won the African Cup of Nations with Burkina Faso. Blew a big lead in the Serie B with Reggina and failed to get promoted but moved to Lillestrom and won the Norwegian title. Moved to Mexico with America but got sacked after losing in the playoffs in both the opening and closing stages. Joined their fierce rivals Pumas de la UNAM where I won 4 league titles (2x Apertura, 2x Clausura) in 4 seasons as well as 2 NACL titles and the CWC with a win over Barca in the final. Developed many prospects and half my first team was from the academy. Also won the Copa America with Argentina sometime during my spell at Pumas. Game petered out because it became too slow despite the add/remove leagues feature which was probably not working as it should have. FM15- Took over at Gjovik-Lyn in the Norwegian 3rd tier but didn't have much success in the year that I spent there. Lucked out when I got a job at FC Honka in the Finnish 2nd tier. Got promoted in my second full season, then won a league and league cup double during the second season in the top flight. Went to Mamelodi Sundowns in South Africa, eventually toppled a dominant Kaiser Chiefs and after 3 and a half years, finally won the African Champions League. Left for South Korea, winning the league win FC Seoul but not managing anything in the ACL in two attempts. Took over at a Dortmund side that had finished 8th and won the league in my first season before following it up with a treble. Won the CWC as well with them. Tried to get the Liverpool job but they didn't want me because I had rejected them multiple times at Dortmund. Took over at a yo-yoing Southampton side who were 19th in the table, kept them up on the final day. Finished 3rd, 6th and 3rd in the next 3 years (iirc), winning the FA Cup twice, the League Cup once and a solitary Europa League by beating Bayern in the final.
  9. Making up for all those years in non-league now.
  10. Finally caught up with this 3 days after I started and I have to say that it was worth it.
  11. Silva did a better job than most. Maybe with a non-Portuguese manager, they would have gone down earlier.
  12. Just can't believe Mourinho has lasted at a single club for so long.
