  1. UEFA EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS 2028 Following on from our World Cup win two years ago, it's now time to take on the very best in Europe. As the defending champions following on from Rudi Garcia's reign, could we retain the trophy? Squad. The 23 man squad includes many names that were present in the World Cup win 2 years ago. Some new blood has come through though - the likes of Hannibal, Bonneau, Belhaoua, Sugira and Aouchiche make their tournament debut for Les Bleus. Jonathan Ikone also returns to tournament action for France after missing out on the previous two tournaments foll
  2. New Job Big club, big job, but this has some sentimental reasons for it. Why? Some of my ex players are now with the Red Devils. Both Huarana and Williams were with me at Wolfsburg when we won the Bundesliga. Morales was also at Nacional during my tenure there. Looking forward to this one!!
  3. Small update from me Thank god we did it at the first try, as I don't think I could stomach another year in the MLS. The domestic campaign has started off alright - we're currently second in the Eastern Conference, 5 points off NYCFC but with 4 games in hand due to the Champions League. I opted to let Josef Martinez leave on a free as I couldn't justify a £60k/week wage for a 34 year old designated player, even if he is a club legend. We signed Folarin Balogun last year, a younger and fitter version of Martinez out on the left side, plus it allowed us a slot to fill with a desig
  4. Nice. I shall update my own template and use the copy/paste one in due course. I think I'm at eight (unless I've missed anything?) (EDIT - I realise the Torneo Intermedio is counted as a domestic cup, in which case I have 9) Leagues MLS (Atlanta United), Uruguayan (Nacional), Finnish (HJK Helsinki), German (Wolfsburg) Cups Scottish (Dunfermline), US Open Cup (Atlanta United), Torneo Intermedia (Nacional) Continental Copa Libertadores (Nacional) International World Cup (France)
  5. ATLANTA UNITED FC 2027 SEASON RECAP Very brief update from me baby HQ here. I finally finished the first MLS season with Atlanta United. I'm not sure the league is for me - the squad restriction ruling isn't my cup of tea plus the season just seems incredibly long (although in reality not too dissimilar to a European League - perhaps I'm just conditioned). However, being on paternity leave with my newborn son/assistant manager has meant that I could finish the league whilst giving him cuddles/discussing tactics. Anyway, we swept everything in sight, thus qualifying for th
  6. Now on paternity leave - time to fire this game back up. Will catch up on all the latest updates soon!
  7. Cheers @dkouv For the sake of reviving the save I may go unemployed and start again somewhere else. It's been a good few weeks since I've properly played and resigning and starting new somewhere may reinvigorate the save.
  8. Quick update from me - not fallen out of love with the save or challenge. I've just had a baby but he's currently in hospital after an operation so trying to get through that first. I'm sure FM will be great for me on those night feed shifts when he's at home! Atlanta is going OK. We're top of our conference in the MLS with half the regulation season completed. Can't say I'm having the most fun with the MLS still, so depending on how we do I may weigh up leaving Atlanta for pastures new.
  9. @goonergez when we taking over Maidstone United from Hakan then mate? --------------------------------- I've decided to give the MLS a go this season, and will leave if we don't accomplish anything with Atlanta. After drawing the opening game 0-0 against NY Red Bulls, we've picked up 5 wins in a row and are currently top of the Eastern Conference by two points. Think I've got my head around the wage cap system etc. Perhaps the league will grow on me...
  10. I may have made a mistake with Atlanta. Not sure that I'm a fan of the MLS system, particularly the squad and transfer restrictions. Seems confusing, limiting to me. That being said, I can always go for the CONCACAF Champions League with a Mexican side. Anyone else found it similar with the MLS?
  11. Shame to hear - fresh start, fresh mind, fresh African Champions League
  12. CLUB NACIONAL DE FOOTBALL SEASON 2026 REVIEW First full year in Uruguay, and we had already added the Uruguayan First Division title to my resume last season. However, this year we had my first shot at the Copa Libertadores to deal with, along with defending our domestic crown. European teams were swarming around my squad like vultures too, so what happened? FIRST DIVISION COPA LIBERTADORES THE FUTURE PROGRESS
  13. @goonergez Fingers crossed next season for you. What's the alternative if it doesn't come off? @_JHTB_ Good to see you back. Nice combo to get you back in to the swing of things too! @Muggert Excellent season from you there. Can Anyang do the business in the K League 1? @SatournFanGotta love Hong Kong. Can you build on your first season do you think? @Diego D10S Welcome to the thread! @numero uno gunner How long a contract do you have? Sometimes other clubs won't want to pay the compensation to get you, so that will sometimes cause you to not get an interview in the fi
  14. FRANCE WORLD CUP 2026 It's taken 6 season for me to see a full international tournament in the save, but here we are. Managing France, one of the pre-tournament favourites and ranked number 1 in the world, could we go and make it 3 successive World Cup victories? Squad Group Stage Second Round (if applicable) Third Round (if applicable) Quarter Final (if applicable) Semi Final (if applicable) Final (if applicable) What's Next?
  15. Sadly I've lost both of them to foreign teams paying release clauses. Approx £18m received in transfer fees, only £3m added to the transfer budget. Go figure. Still though that's a lot of money for the Uruguayan league. We beat Boca 2-1 in a friendly so there are promising signs. I have a few more coming through too but not on the level of those I've just lost. @SatournFanWelcome to the thread!! Good luck on your journey! @timpy00West Ham - interesting. Bit of a stop gap for you until something better comes along? Definitely gaining some more reputation in England would be helpf
  16. Small update: Firstly the World Cup draw has been made - France, Chile and DR Congo. Not the easiest but we should be winning that group with ease. Secondly, on to Nacional. We've just beaten Boca 2-1 in a friendly but I've just lost my two star newgens to European sides. I am considering my position as I'm unsure as to whether this is worth my time now. There are some newgens of decent quality but none of the quality of those we've just sold. There aren't any jobs right now that are worth applying for and my contract runs out at the end of this season.
  17. Yes sir, its THE James Rodriguez. At 34 he's a decent rotation option in the Uruguayan First Division. I'm staying for the Copa Libertadores campaign. I want to see how this squad compares against the big teams from Brazil and Argentina. Nacional were in the Copa Libertadores this season before I joined, but got knocked out in the qualifying rounds. This season I did become incredibly lazy with the game though. The standard 4-2-3-1 gegenpress filled in with the appropriate players was the reason we destroyed the Uruguayan campaign, and often we'd be a few goals up before half time
  18. Club Nacional de Football/France 2025 Update Erm... Not quite sure how to put this... Just... dominant. Nacional So yeah... we didn't lose. In fact, we won every game bar one. No Playoff required as we won both Opening and Closing Stages. We also won the Intermedio, though needed extra time to do so. Transfer-wise, we picked up James Rodriguez from Feyenoord for about £550k. He featured a fair amount and it was nice to bring him in. Not much else to say other than I'll stick around for the Copa Libertadores campaign. We go in at the Group Stage
  19. Very quickly after my update - I decided Molde and Olympiakos didn't offer too much for me. Yes the league titles could be there, along with cups, but I'm no closer to trying to tackle the continental game. So it's time to head out of Europe and expand my horizons. And one job has turned up in a nation a few of you have managed in already. Let's go to Uruguay... Club Nacional de Football - Takeover Update Possibly the first proper go I've got with a top side in a continental competition. The Nacional job became available as the previous manager was struggling to k
  20. VfL Wolfsburg - End of Season 2024/25 It's the end of my 2nd full season (2 and a half in total) in Germany, and I have some good news!! Bundesliga One of the big five leagues is ticked off. Our league title was confirmed with 3 games to go. We've been really helped out by Bayern being TERRIBLE this year. Neuer retired at the end of last season and was replaced by Porto's Diogo Costa, but they've had an inconsistent year drawing more games than usual. We, however, were excellent, going unbeaten all the way to the beginning of March. Our match away at Gladbach was just
  21. So many new people in the thread. Welcome to all of you. I've not had too much time to play recently (trying to get ready for my child being born...) but I still have some news Firstly, some news from the domestic game in Germany... WE FINALLY BEAT BAYERN!!! Granted this is the German Supercup, so doesn't count to my tally for the challenge, but getting over the mental block of last year is a great achievement. Bayern have an incredibly strong squad (see the spoiler below) and are still the favourites again for another Bundesliga crown... However, I've invested
  22. I'll catch up with this thread after I've calmed down. My first full season with Wolfsburg has come to an end. All I can say is this... I HATE BAYERN MUNICH Losing the league on the final day plus losing the Pokal final with the last kick of the game. Absolutely fuming. There's a temptation to move on - the Arsenal job is available as is Nacional in Uruguay. But there's so much more temptation to stick around and knock them off their ******* perch. One good window could really transform us, and with finishing 2nd and Champions League football
  23. @_JHTB_Congrats on the new job in Bilbao. Tough ask to try and win La Liga but certainly a move in the right direction from Guangzhou. Looks like the Chinese Super League was a bit of a walkover? @dkouvWell done on knocking off the Asian Cup on your trophies list!! @timpy00 Hard luck on the run in with Madura. With a full season of those results under your belt the league should be there for the taking! @berrers South American leagues always look confusing to me but I think I followed how you won the league. Congratulations!! @lukefox44Any news on the new job?
  24. I need to catch up with the thread as it's been a few days since I've read the updates!! Gotten through my first full pre-season with Wolfsburg - pretty happy with the transfer business so far. I've really tried to strengthen the centre of defence this summer. Leaving the club were Benjamin Huber (not good enough), Joshua Guilavogui (homesick) and Marin Pongrancic (wanted a move). Although we sadly lost Pongrancic to Bayern we replaced him (somewhat surprisingly) with a 29 year old John Stones. I'm adopting a vertical tiki-taka system and I feel that Stones fits right in to the
  25. VfL Wolfsburg End of Season 22/23 Update A very brief update given that I took the Wolfsburg job in January 2023 after my short stint in Helsinki. Following the Finnish Premier League win I now find myself in the Niedersachen, managing my beloved Wolfsburg. The club found themselves languishing in 12th position, sacking Peter Bosz after a string of poor results and failing in the early stages of the DFB Pokal. The league is now over, and here's how we did. Some amazing results in here, along with some very disappointing results. After the defeat in my first game to Mon
