  1. 2042/43 –Paris Saint-Germain Manager Profile – Fixtures 1 – Fixtures 2 – Fixtures 3 Competitions – Player Stats – Transfers Finally had time to get through a new season, and after leaving the post at Man. City I was hired at PSG. In other words, I'm back in France to get the league, which I couldn't get while I was at Bordeaux. I've seen better years at Man.City than I got from this year, but I wouldn't complain on the outcome. Ligue 1 Conforama: The primary goal this season was winning the league to finish off France football from the challenge. A relatively close run in the league with Toulouse, which followed us almost all the way, but in the end we won it by 5 points. Could've easily lost it in the end if Toulouse also didn't fell apart the last few games. French Cup: Short run, knocked out in the 10th round against OCG Nice. Coupe de la Ligue: Knocked out in quarter finals against AS Monaco. Not able to win the trophy I won with Bordeaux a few seasons ago. Champions League: Crazy tough group, going up against Dortmund, Sevilla and Anderlecht. Stumbled through on 2nd place, after starting with a record of 1-0-2 from the first 3 games. Barely took down Inter and Everton on the way to the semi-finals, before we took down Bayern in the semis. Chelsea waited in the final, which we lost 2-3 after extra time. Club World Championship: Won for second time, no problems winning it when we were qualified. European Super Cup: Beat Liverpool 3-2 after giving the lead away twice in the game. Good first match in the new club for me. Ligue 1 is now part of my trophy cabinet, and I have resigned my post. Going back to Germany next, hoping to win the German Bundesliga with Bayern Munich. Also in the midst of euro qualification with Spain now, finishing 4th in this years nations league.

  3. 2041/42 –Manchester City Manager Profile – Fixtures 1 – Fixtures 2 – Fixtures 3 Competitions – Player Stats – Transfers New season done, and it is one to remember! Difficult times with lots of injuries on key players, but we pulled out a great year. New signings came through, and some of the youth prospects that were in the team when I arrived are starting to compete for a spot in the starting 11. Will just keep the update simple like last time, so here's how we did. Community Shield: Close game, but lost in the end 2-1 to Chelsea. Match not at exciting as it was last year, but it was a good final game before the season started. Premier League: We're again up against Chelsea in a duel for the league win, but seeing us winning over them early in the season gave us a small lead from the start. Pulling a great sequence of results together means we stay in front for most of the season, and Chelsea only winning 1 of the final 4 games gives us the title with a comfortable lead. FA Cup: No problems in getting to the 4th final in this competition in 5 years. Chelsea again the opponent in the final, but this time we got the win 2-0. Carabao Cup: Semi-finals, up against Manchester United. Lost 2-0 in game 1, won 2-0 in game 2. Went all the way to penalties, where we lost. Champions League: This was not a priority, but annoyed with how we lost it. Got through the group stages in a rough way, ending 2nd in group behind Porto. Up against Bayern Munich in the 1st knock out stage, and got a 2-0 win from the first leg. 2nd leg was going good for a while, being only down 1-0, until 90+ minutes and they scored twice. Early exit and some disappointed players that wanted more from this cup. Having won the Premier League there is nothing else for me in Manchester City, and I'll resign and look for a new job. Want to stay in the top leagues of Europe, so has to be Germany, France or Spain next. But before I can concentrate on that, there's the World Cup in the summer, and I'll try to take Spain to the title.

  4. 2040/41 –Manchester City Manager Profile – Fixtures 1 – Fixtures 2 – Fixtures 3 Competitions – Player Stats – Transfers Finally have time to post this update, as it's been a couple of days since the season ended. Won't make it a long update, but I'll get down the important notes. Community Shield: Obviously we met Chelsea, and what a game it was. Took an early lead 0-1 only to find myself down 4-1 after the hour. Pushed a lot more for attacks at that moment which payed off since we managed to get 5(!) goals the final 30 minutes. 6-4 in the end, and one of the craziest game I've played on FM. Premier League: Again it's a two horse race against Chelsea, and again we fell short. Ended at 90 points, 4 points behind Chelsea, but I feel we should've won it this year. Dropped some points far too easy in the additional time, and lost some matches due to poor finishing. Really frustrating seeing this one slip, but we were closer this time around. FA Cup: No problems in getting to the 3rd final in this competition in 4 years, but meeting Chelsea in the final saw us losing 0-2. Carabao Cup: Once again we play our way to the final without any big problems. There we met Chelsea (surprise!), and even though we got a late red card we took the game into extra time with 0-0. Early in the 2nd half of extra time we got our goal and defended well to see it through. European Super Cup: Having won the Champions League the year before we had to meet Europa League winners Tottenham. We had a terrible performance and lost 2-0. Champions League: Won this cup last year and had other priorities this season. Easily through the group stage but went out against Monaco in the quarter final. Club World Cup: Probably the most important one this season, as I didn't know when I'd get to play this cup again. Did not disappoint and won the trophy comfortably. For next season I'm gonna clear out some dead meat from the squad and invest in a quality striker. This team is the one I'll win the premier league with on this save, and I don't believe I'll get a better shot at it than I have now (and have had the last two years). Hopefully it's my turn soon, because this challenge still needs 10+ seasons to be completed. In addition, I got the job as manager of Spain. Won my group against Portugal and Poland in Nations League, but fell short in the finals ending 4th. In the middle of World Cup Qualifications now, and hope to pull that one off next summer.

  5. 2039/40 –Manchester City Manager Profile – Fixtures 1 – Fixtures 2 – Fixtures 3 Competitions – Player Stats – Transfers It's been almost a year since I last played at this save, but I've finally picked it up again. And I think this resulted in one of my best seasons of this save, if not the best. Couldn't win the league, which turns out to be a near impossible task no matter where I manage on this save, but improved a lot from last year and I'm hopeful for next season.Only conceding 16 goals and a league record on 25 clean sheets makes us the best defensive team in the league, and offensive we're not far behind Chelsea. If we improve a bit offensively I hope we can get that winning goal out of some of the matches we now draw to really compete for the title next year. That being said, we had an amazing run in the Champions League this year. Went through the group stages undefeated only to meet Barcelona in the knock-out round. Not the kind of draw you want, but got an incredible 0-4 win from the away game followed by an insane 6-4 win ay home making it 10-4(!) in total. Then we beat Juventus 4-1 over the two games in the quarter finals, before we played a new crazy match-up against Real Madrid. Thrashed them 5-1 at home almost securing my spot in the final, and secured it by a 4-3 loss away, making it 8-5 in total. Really nerve-wrecking game but we got through to play Chelsea in the final. Got behind both 0-1 and 1-2 in the match-up, only equalising to 2-2 in the 94th minute, bringing the game to extra time. In the extra time we got the lead for the first time in the final, but it only lasted a few minutes before we were tied back up again, 3-3. Got to penalty shoot-out, and won it 4-3 after Chelsea missed their last 2 penalties. So in other words, I won the European Champions League!

  6. 2038/39 –Manchester City Manager Profile – Fixtures 1 – Fixtures 2 – Fixtures 3 Competitions – Player Stats – Transfers I don't think I've ever been as frustrated with FM as I've been this season. It resulted in a week where I just refused to open Football Manager because I was sick of everything going against me, but now I'm finally ready to move on. We finish 4th in the league, 3 pts. behind Arsenal in 2nd place and Liverpool in 3rd place, but 17(!) pts behind an unstoppable Chelsea team still managed by Antonio Conte. We play well most games, but we have too many of those days where nothing really works out. With a 4-0 win over Liverpool and 5-0 over Arsenal I think we show that we really have something going on here, but losing to teams like Swansea and Newcastle and drawing against several other lower-half teams is just not going to get us to the title. In the end we probably would have fell short of Chelsea anyways, but we really should have gotten the 2nd place this year… Even though it annoys me to only get 4th in the league, the cups are what really annoys me. In the Carabao (League) Cup we deserved to lose against Arsenal in the qtr. final, but we deserved far more from the FA Cup and Europa League. Played 0-0 against Derby in 5th round of FA Cup after dominating the match, before we delivered an awful penalty shootout to knock us out. Getting knocked out of Europa League was even worse, given that we have two matches to pull through. But after firing 37 shots (with 13 hitting target) we only manage to get 1(!) goal against my former club Bordeaux. When they also score on one of their two shots on target (4 in total) over 2 games, and this happens at our stadium, we got knocked out on away goals. I was furious as the board expected us to win the cup and we went out to a team that barely created anything… I have now 1 year left in my contract with Man. City and will give the Premier League one go here. I hope to get a better transfer window next season, as the board reduced the budget with over £70M before the January window this season, destroying my hopes on getting a new face or two in. Feel we look good defensively, but might need a DM, AMC and/or STC.

  7. 2037/38 –Manchester City Manager Profile – Fixtures Competitions – Player Stats As mentioned earlier I got the job at Manchester City following the really bad season at Schalke 04. When I got the job we were placed 6th after 30 games and with quite a gap up to the top teams, so it would be tough finishing any higher than we were when I got there. My main objective for the season is to figure out how to play with this team, where I need to strengthen before next season and challenge for the FA Cup, where we already were in the semi final. I got off to a rough start with what is one of the craziest matches I've had yet on this save as my first match against Aston Villa. Went down 1-0 right before half time before we equalised after 70 minutes. As we kept pushing for the win we got a man sent off after 78 minutes, forcing me to change the system only to see them get reduced to 10 men as well after 82 minutes. It looked like it would end disappointingly with a draw before we scored in the 96th and 97th minute to secure a 1-3 win. Went 8-1-1 in the 10 games I had, drawing Tottenham and losing massively against Chelsea. But we secured the FA Cup trophy, giving us something from a bad year. Quick update on Schalke: Left them 12th in league after 15 games, but saw them through EURO Cup group stage as group winner. In the end they barely survived relegation after winning the play-off and got knocked out from EURO Cup second knockout round.

  8. Short update from me as I'm soon done with season 2037/38: Season at Schalke started poorly and got no better as time went. I want to blame some of it on injuries on key players that we had more on this season than the previous, but I don't think it's an excuse. Strikers are even worse at hitting target this season, and tactical changes did not help this cause over the months. Decided to resign around December as I did not us pull ourselves together enough to finish the season as we were expected to do. Only positive is that we got through the group stage of europa league, but it's not enough to keep me there. Got offered a few jobs at lower-rep clubs after this, but rejected them all. Been unsuccessful on a couple of high-rep jobs earlier, and thought I might get one now as I'm unemployed mid-season if something came up. Then it happened as Man.City sacked their manager. I applied, got a job interview and later they offered me the job. Placed 6th after 30 games I probably won't qualify for next years champions league, but I'm definitely at a club where it is possible to win the premier league. No problem, @jaysdailydose.
  9. 2037 Confederations Cup – Brazil We go into the Confederations Cup in really bad form, with 3 losses in a row and placed 3rd in the South America WC Qualifier. The board expects us to reach the final, which should be doable given we got an easy group. After that it's just two games it comes down to, and everything can happen in a cup. This is most likely make or break for me as my job is starting to get insecure… Group stage: Semi final (if applicable): Final // 3rd place playoff (if applicable): After tournament: CLUB MANAGEMENT Season Team League Position Domestic Cups Continental Cup Notes 2017/18 Hong Kong Rangers Hong Kong Premier League 6th 1st/1st/2nd/Qtr. final N/A National C-license, 2 domestic cups 2018 Geylang International Singaporean League 6th 1st/3rd N/A Took over 7th with 8 games to go, 1 domestic cup 2019 Geylang International Singaporean League 1st 1st/2nd N/A National B-license, 1 domestic cup 2020 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A Unemployed 2021 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A No club job 2022 Shijiazhuang Yongchang Chinese Super League 10th 3rd round N/A Continental C-license, expected last in league, 3rd best in 2nd half of the season 2023 Shijiazhuang Yongchang Chinese Super League 3rd 4th round N/A Continental B-license, expected last in league, qualified for ACL 2024 Shijiazhuang Yongchang Chinese Super League 3rd 4th round Qtr.

  10. 2036/37 – Schalke 04 Manager Profile – Fixtures 1 – Fixtures 2 Competitions – Player Stats – Transfers This season we do better, but we are still far away from the best teams. 6th in the league is probably the best we could hope for right now, as we just don't score enough goals. Had to look at the statistics and we are placed 5th on both goals conceded and clean sheets. Also we are enjoying more possession than any other team, passing more than any other team and are among the best on pass completion. Turns out we just don't know how to create chances when in possession, and when the chances arise we lack the ability to put the ball into the net. If I'm going to have a shot at a better season next year I definitely need a couple of attacking players that can get me more goals. Only scoring half the goals that Bayern does is never going to get us anywhere… CLUB MANAGEMENT Season Team League Position Domestic Cups Continental Cup Notes 2017/18 Hong Kong Rangers Hong Kong Premier League 6th 1st/1st/2nd/Qtr. final N/A National C-license, 2 domestic cups 2018 Geylang International Singaporean League 6th 1st/3rd N/A Took over 7th with 8 games to go, 1 domestic cup 2019 Geylang International Singaporean League 1st 1st/2nd N/A National B-license, 1 domestic cup 2020 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A Unemployed 2021 N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A No club job 2022 Shijiazhuang Yongchang Chinese Super League 10th 3rd round N/A Continental C-license, expected last in league, 3rd best in 2nd half of the season 2023 Shijiazhuang Yongchang Chinese Super League 3rd 4th round N/A Continental B-license, expected last in league, qualified for ACL 2024 Shijiazhuang Yongchang Chinese Super League 3rd 4th round Qtr.

  11. 2035/36 – Schalke 04 Manager Profile – Fixtures Competitions – Player Stats Time to get back into club management, and after being rejected by some top-level clubs I got the job at Schalke 04 in the beginning of 2036. This is a step down from my last club job at Internazionale, but I felt like I had to take what I could get. Had no demands from the board when it came to results, so I just tried to figure out how to best play with the players I had available. We did not get lucky on the results, but I think we deserved far more points than we could accumulate from these games. Probably lost 7-8 points to nonsense over the few games we played, which annoys me a little. Need to strengthen defensively for next season, and if my striker can use the summer to figure out where the goal is located we should be good to go.

  12. Thanks. I'm staying with Brazil to give at least the Confederations Cup a go, and possibly the World Cup after that as well. If i were to leave it would have to be for some European nation to compete for the European Championship 2036, but I nothing came up. Having some minor issues in the qualifiers right now, but think the job is safe for now.
  13. 2035 Copa América – Brazil After resigning at Internazionale I decided to go with Brazil over England, giving me a go at the Copa América already in 2035. Got no club job this season, so only focused on getting that Copa América checked off the list. Did not do much in the build-up between I took over the job and the cup started, and we only had 2 games from October to mid-June. This included a loss on penalties against Argentina in the 2034 Superclásico and a close 2-1 win against Chile 4 days before the Copa América started. Probably should have played more games to find a good tactic for the team, but that had to wait until the group stage.

  14. Thanks! Hopefully I can climb the board with more frequent landmarks now as my reputation is high enough to get those top-level jobs.
  15. 2033/34 – FC Internazionale Manager Profile – Friendlies&Cup – League 1 – League 2 Competitions – Player Stats – Transfers I decided to give Internazionale one more season as there were no tempting club to jump to after the previous season. Could be interesting to give Champions League a go, and I wanted a cup win from Italy. Needless to say, playing continental tournaments gave us a lot more games to play. This resulted in much more injuries on key players, and I had games where I struggled to compose a good starting eleven. This didn't mean that that we couldn't compete to defend the league title, and what a fight it was this year. Closing in on the end of season there were 5-6 teams that could win it, and in the end we ended 2nd behind AS Roma. All in all a good season, but we probably should have won the league again… Cups are always interesting, as one bad moment can really ruin the whole tournament. I've never in my FM career seen more defensive mistakes leading to goals as I saw from my own team during the group stage of the Champions League. Really frustrated that we were unable to further, but at least we got to continue in the Europa League. There I got to the quarter final before Atletico Madrid got that one important goal in a tight match up. But we did manage to challenge for a cup trophy when we went all the way in the Italian Cup, after a great sequence of matches. Given that I've won everything that I need in Italy I decided not to extend my contract and resign at the end of the season. Hopefully I can land a top job in one of the other top European clubs for next season. Edit: After World Cup 2034 I got offered the job at both Brazil and England (and Romania, but clearly I won't take that). Not sure which one to take as England is ranked higher of those two (5th at FIFA ranking), but Brazil is the best South-American team placed 10th. Also Copa America is played 2035, which gives me an earlier go at a international trophy than waiting for England to play the European Football Championship. New job secured, but not really sure where it is yet.
