  1. Thank god for Holidays and instant result End of Season 2025 In Brazil, The Year starts with the state league Both media and board expected us to win. Honestly, I do not get the structure of this state league, there are groups, but we seem to be playing everyone? Anyway, we won the final, so safe to say we won it. Now, onto the real League We were supposed to challenge for the title. Shoutout to Athletico Paraenese and Fluminense foor having nothing to the left of their name😉 Anyway, We won with quite a margin. Sad to
  2. End of Season 2024 As is obvious from the header icon, I got a Job in Brazil: This is how the table looked when I joined: Rather poor, considering Media predicted that the club would finish 2nd. The expectation was to finish 6th or better, which is rather steep from 16. Nevertheless, I guess that I would not have got the job if things were better. So, How did we do? It is easy to see that the bad results came in patches, and that was because very often, we were expected to play 2-3 matches with 7-8 first teamers on international duty. However,
  3. End of Season 2023 Firstly, I started my Continental pro course this year, but forgot to screen shot. Therefore, I start of with the league: Almost managed to go undefeated, but that was not to be. Obviously, this meant: We did way better than last year, but so did Beijing. Anyway, What was more important this year was the cup: We lost in the fifth round to Beijing, which is really unfortunate. Beijing did go on to the final, but just like the league, fell short here too. This Year, we also had the Champions League:
  4. End of Season 2022 First Things First, i got the board to get me on two more courses: This Year, the board still wanted me to avoid relegation , but the media had something Else in mind: As for me, I wanted to win it all. And come the end of the season: Unfortunately, the cup was not to be, with Shanghai knocking us out in the semi final. Here is the full set of fixtures: Finally, There is the youth: As usual, meh. Finally: Next year, we will be in the Champions League. We just won the number on
  5. Okay, I see Moving on from Hong Kong, I Enter China I was given a transfer budget of 50m and wage budget in excess of 600k. There is one problem however: Here is what we managed to do: Really expected to do better with Chongqing, but rest was great. Guangzhou, on the other hand: Which meant: Also, There was this: Our wage budget is somehow as high as the best in the league, so the Title Challenge is on next year!!! Season Team Position Notes and Achievements 2019/20 Lee Man FC 1st FA Cup and
  6. End of Season 2020-21 This year, I was able to take two steps towards becoming a certified manager, so that is an improvement from last year: Moving on to youth: Meh, and never mind. Now onto the real stuff. This year, media predicted us to be champions: Now, this is hard to beat, but still, I doubt they had expected this margin: And the fixtures: Kitchee, who had an otherwise unremarkable season, managed to beat us away and hold us to a draw at home, but otherwise, we were perfect. Now, the cups:
  7. End of Season 2019-20 First Things First, I started my journey towards becoming a certified manager: Next up, the youth: Poor, but honestly, I do not care, this is not that kind of save Moving over to the sapling cup, we drew against Fuli, but then won 6-1 against Eastern, to make the final table look like this: Thereafte, we won the semi-final 1-0 in extra time against Wofoo, but Eastern got their revenge in the Final, winning 1-0 Next up, the FA Cup: Short and sweet, my first trophy towards the challenge!!! Finally, w
  8. Kautilya is Back!!! Back with FM 15, he had completed this challenge. 5 versions later, he is back To be frank, this time I wanted to start off in the lower rungs of one of the big 5 countries, but failed to get a job in the first 2 years over 3 tries. Therefore, in my 4th try, I decided not to post here immediately. In reality,i am a year and half into the save, and this time, it looks much more possible. So here we go: And Here are the initial Manager Stats: It is basically just the standard youth development preset What really matters, however, is t
  9. End of Season 2023-24 Youth Intake Meh League We won the league with several games in hand, and then it became difficult to finish unbeaten. Nevertheless, we ended up with quite the margin: Copa del Rey: Once again, Levante defeated Barca in the semis to lose t to us in the finals. If Betis would have lost their quarters, we could hav had a repeat of last years matches from the semis. Champions League: We retained our title in a spain only final. Hopefully we can make a habit of it Squad Looks like I will hav
  10. New Year 2024 We started this season with odds of 9-2, our best so far, while the board wants us to retain the title. Pre-Season The pre season started before the season switch, so July is split into two. We did a mini League with some of the Best teams in Europe, and won it. I intend to keep doing this every season now. Would have been nice to win the European Super Cup, but a great Pre-Season nonetheless. League Perfection. Most surprising is Atletico trailing off at 9th. We have a game in hand and 8 points Champions League
  11. End of Season 2022-23 Youth Intake Meh. And again another set of upgrades have been approved. League Ended the season Undefended, Which obviously means: We Retain the Title!!! Cup: Barca Lost out to Levante, Real Lost to Celta, And Atletico met Real in the fifth rund, so this time we had a clean path. Champions League The last Group match was really dead rubber, but we won it anyway. And then we won the tournament too!!! The final was real sweet, since Angel was on PSG's starting 11, and
  12. New Year 2023 League Fewer matches due to the winter world cup, but unbeaten throughout!! No idea why Atletico got to play 3 extra matches. Champions League Again, Winter World Cup means that the CL group could not conclude before new year, although, the qulifications are sealed. Crazy to see Juventus miss out. Cup A single legged 5th Round, and we are through, fairly easily All seems well, except that neither of the strikers is turning out as good as I wanted them to be My full back is the top scorer, and my back
  13. End Of Pre-Season 2022-23 Expectations continue to rise as this time the media predict us to finish 5th with odds of 6-1 while the board wants qualification to the Champions League. I personally want to repeat last year's achievement of winning the legue. Transfers: To begin with, I purchased Rodrigues, whom I have already shown, for a whopping 60M. He is the second best striker at the club behind Romero, but Romero is needed in the left wing, so I decided to bring in some competition for Rodrigues, Just to keep him on his toes. Meet Edivaldo, who cost me 7.5 Million.
  14. End of Season 2021-22 Youth Intake Never mind. Another set of upgrades is happening by the way. League Let me start with the goal scorers: Fair to say that Angel's form dropped in the second half of the season, but still, he more than doubled our top-goal scorer count from last season. Admittedly, he had more matches to play though. However, that meant that our league performance looked somewhat like this: As to why we lost to Villarreal in the last match, We had already won the league!!! Champions League We went to the final
  15. New Year 2022 League: Osauna and and the two Madrid sides are the blips here, of which Osauna is just unlucky. Oh, and we continue our domination over Barcelona in the league. How did we get so much better from last season then? Here is the answer: Angel has scored more goals in the first half of the season than our top-goalscorer did in the entirety of the last season. Sadly, PSG wont let him go for even 75M, which is already way to high for our club, even if we have a very good run in europe. In the meanwhile, here is the League Table: If we win
  16. End of Pre Season 2021-22 This time Board and media both expect top half. Frankly, I would be sad if we do not make it to CL again. Transfers The board refused to make more than 8M available for transfers,and I could get it upto 12 with a higher aim, but decided against it as Sahin was not budging at less than 26. with no other option, I decided to do this: This might be counter to youth development idea, but then he is my club's product, and only 18(though I doubt PSG will let him go). Hopefully, he will help us make enough to get a good striker(which won't be Sahin
  17. End of Season 2020-21 Youth Intake: Meh... More updates please League: It is not often that a team beats Barcelona home and away. In face, Barcelona was leading the table till the third week of February, but then we lost to Real and won against Barca, giving Rel the advantage. In the end though, real also got overthrown by their local rivals, Atletico, who won the league. Speaking of the which... League Table: We are in th CL!!!! That should take care of all the promises made. In fact, I now have all my main players tied down for atlea
  18. New Year 2021 Matches: We have been going in patches, but I will take it. While I expected to lose against Athletic and Real, Malaga, Levante and Betis were easier clubs. But then we have that win aginst Barca, so I do not know what the formula is here, but more of the same please!!! Table: We are in the European places with 4 points lead and a game in hand at halfway, so that would take care of a couple of promises if we can hold on. Cup: Last time round, Athletic knocked us out. This time, we have a 2 goal advantage coming home. Fingers cross
  19. Pre-Season 2020-21 Once again, the the media predicted us to finish last, this time with odds of 1000-1. Once again, board wanted me to fight against relegation, and I increased it to avoid relegation. Once again, I hope to do better than that... Transfers Unfortunately, no suitable targets were found in Brazil or Africa, so all my transfers were from Portugal. Guimaraes had to be given a first team status, since he would take nothing less, and he was the only defensive player availbale of his caibre(he is a DM). Rest are all on rotation/backup status. Angelo is a GK, and
  20. End of Season 2019-20 As expected, the Year 2020 kicked off with a flurry of transfer offers for almost all of my players. I obviously rejected them all, which meant upsetting half of my team. Javier Miguel was convinced when I told them that I would improve the squad in the next transfer window, while Parraga was satisfied on being told that we would finish top half in La Liga in 2012/22(both rather hard challenges, but better than to upset the right away). A couple got unhappy, and we needed a couple of squad meetings, luckily, only backup players showed up for these. Despite all this,
  21. New Year 2020 Fixtures: It has been a dream run, with the only loss against Getafe being more of an anomaly. Luis Silva got to tart in 12 games with an additional 10 appeaance as a sub(including cup appearances). Most of the other Backups got 2-5 games each. League Table: We are comfortably at the top after 19 games, And it would be dissapointing to miss out on automatic promotion from here. Cup: It was close against Athletic. In any case, we exceeded expectations. Players in Demand: While all my players have 2-3 years on their contract
  22. Pre Season 2019-20 In our first season in Spanish second division, media expect us to finnish dead last again with pre-season odds of 200-1. Board wanted us to "Attempt to avoid relegation", which I raised to "Avoid Relegation." This year, we also take part in the Spanish King's Cup, and board wants us to make it to the second round. Transfers: Silva comes in as a backup to full-backs, Neves for striker, Paz and Castellano in the midfield, Rohas for wingers and martinez for central defence. Hopefully, I will not have to start with greys this season. Friendlies:
  23. Great to Have you on board Youth Intake I was really looking forward to having 3-4 players with 1 golden star so that they could become backups to my team. Unfortunately, that was not to be, and all I get is Oriol. I signed all of them since I need an U19 team, but no one is tagged, since they are unlikely to make it to first team anytime, what with them being older than my starting 11 We had Poor youth facilities , luckily that is going to change: Fixtures: With injuries and suspensions kicking in, I had to field a grey player almost every match. Luck
  24. Turns out they are. New Year 2019 Matches: Turns out that the media prediction was very wrong, and we have been great in the league. There have been 3 clear phasesIn September, I am guessing that everyone was underestimating us, allowing us to win every game until the Villanovense game, which was after our only mid-week fixture. Then we struggled to win during October and November, at which point, I decided to change the team mentality from Balanced to attacking. There haven't been many injuries, and never 2 at the same time. Add that to the fact that we have few mid
  25. First off are the friendlies: Good overall, though it was mostly against poorer clubs for morale building(considering all players are new, it was required) Turns out that we inherited the affiliation to wolves from the club I replaced. I do not intend to use any loans, but I will keep it for the payout and friendly. Next update:New year.
