  1. Wolfsburg - 2035-36 - New Season Preview Transfers so far All the major deals have been done, still a few more loans to go through and I will look at bringing in a few youngster for the II side. First XI, Second XI Keepers: Morin-Cousin, Jean Carlos LMC has only featured 9 times as he has been Jean Carlos' understudy for my tenure here but this is his season to take the starting job off of him. JC is experienced but showing signs of decline. Right-backs: Zander, Mesenholer Zander is another experienced player who despite declining is still good enough to start for us at right-back. Mesenholer his understudy. Centre-backs: Joao Vitor, Gomez, Amonat, Seegert Joao and Amonat was the starting centre-back pairing until Gomez emerged as a first-team regular. A phenomenal player who arrived for just £3.3m three seasons ago. Left-backs: Calderon, Hellebrand Calderon has been class since following me from Monaco to Germany, and his consistency has caused Hellebrand to stagnate as he could not get a start. Advanced playmakers: Flores, Dowie Flores broke out as first choice last season and has developed nicely. Dowie is a new arrival who I see as more of a deep-lying playmaker but can operate in the AP role. Deep-lying playmakers: Whitten, Alvarez Whitten is a lynchpin of the team, with Alvarez providing high-quality cover for him. Carrileros: Frantz, Enes Karaca I have wanted Frantz for ages but his agent wanted stupid money last summer so I withdrew from the deal. However, his agent left so I got him this summer, what a player. Karaca was on loan a few years ago but has since come back to become a key part of the squad. Right-wingers: Krasniqi, Veenboer Krasniqi can play across the whole front three and is a complete player in my opinion. Veenboer isn't overly well suited to the IF role but still is able to do a good job there nevertheless. Left-wingers: Merino, Luque Merino is very good in this role and Luque usually deputises across the front line. Strikers: Ordenewitz, Manning Other squad players: Melgar, Pazman Melgar was a great free transfer after my scouts brought him up. I got Pazman off Lokomotiva Zagreb a few seasons ago and spent two fruitful seasons at Rijeka. He's now part of the first team squad. Onto the German and European Supercups...
  2. Thank you, I'm so relieved I finally won the Champions League! Wolves job is an impossibility (they finished interviewing) so I'm definitely staying at Wolfsburg into a fifth season (already played through most of pre-season). Past that, Chelsea is a big possibility though if any job that interests me comes up I'll pursue it. For instance, Lazio just got a tycoon takeover and paid £60m for one of my players.
  3. Wolfsburg - 2034-35 - End of Season EVERYTHING COMES TOGETHER TREBLE WINNERS!!!! The. Carcedo. Curse. Exists. Need a lifetime deal for the man. 95th minute from Zander to win the cup was a huge highlight We finally did it. Luque is a hero, coming on for Merino and being our match-winner. Absolute scenes. We managed this final without Ordenewitz, who suffered another hip injury and Veenboer while Whitten was only able to come on in the last 20 after getting injured against Chelsea. It was unique as we faced exclusively English teams in the knockout stages this year. I'm not even sure what to do. Wolves job has become available. They've signed the best Croatian prospect on the game. But how can I leave what I have assembled here in Germany, It's a mess. I'm probably going to make a save where I resign and take the Wolves job, but keep a save where I can stay here.
  4. Wolfsburg - 2034-35 - Mid-season Update Doing well so far this year in spite of a flurry of injuries towards the end of the year. Eased through the Champions League group, tough draw but we've beaten City before. Crippling injury - surely his last Ballon d'Or title, still scoring at a good rate but an alarming percentage of his goals are coming from the spot. Ronaldo-esque. Really want to get him his second Champions League title. Also he's reached 111 Germany goals, which makes him the leading men's international goalscorer of all time. What a player.
  5. Cheers mate, fairly steep fee but the Bruch sale covered it and I think with Krasniqi being younger it made sense to sign him.
  6. Wolfsburg - 2034-35 - Pre-Season Update Bruch the only major departure as he is 27 and had a poor season while I could find replacements Krasniqi is the Bruch replacement coming off a decent season in Italy and World Cup with Albania. With Zander getting on and being injured frequently we needed a new right-back and Mesenholer was available for a decent price. 20 goals in the Bundesliga at 18 years old? For a £10.5m release clause? Yes please. He stays with Hannover for a year while we can't guarantee him starts. Very decent grouping.
  7. To be fair, England have some ridiculous regens so their win doesn't come as a huge surprise but Scotland - aside from Main who is a top, top 'keeper (won the Champions League and Premier League as well as the World Cup) - were a bunch of nobodies! Obviously, both are unthinkable in real life, despite how close we came this summer!
  8. Scotland shithouse their way to a World Cup win, despite a draw and a loss in their first two games. They only conceded twice in the tournament, thanks to this guy
  9. Wolfsburg - 2033-34 - End of Season Update A season of failure really. Bayern won the league comfortably in the end though the momentum would have gone our way had we beaten them at home rather than drawing. Roberto Mancini, who pinched Carcedo off me at Monaco and here, has just retired so I'm going to try and bring him back as I'm beginning to believe in this curse now. Champions League... where to start. The heroics against Liverpool and PS-****ing-G (7-2!!!!) count for nothing due to the away goals rule. I don't think I've mentioned this but I hate Bayern! The irony is Allegri left them to go to Monaco, and I was linked with them all summer but instead they went with Koln manager Niko Kovac who obviously just joined them in real life which I found quite funny. I will give Wolfsburg at least another year.
  10. Bayern are formidable, they can spend £100m on a player whenever they want. The best part of it is that their best player is a Brazilian winger called William. I tracked him for months at Valencia, then had a fee agreed for him at Monaco after he went to Spurs, but Bayern beat me to him and he became world-class! We'll see. I'm hoping to go to England but Italy is certainly a place I want to manage, I had a great time there with Venezia on FM16
  11. Gaspar looks quality. Hopefully Ferencvaros' takeover helps the Hungarian league grow and potentially provide you with more domestic competition.
  12. Wolfsburg - 2033-34 - Winter Break Is the Carcedo curse real? Bayern have been on fire so far and we've been off the pace. Plain sailing in the Champions League but Rijeka proved our toughest opponent, holding us to draws home and away. Liverpool next, who we beat in the quarter-final last year. What a player, still smashing it at 30 years young.
  13. Cheers mate, I'm probably going to get it when the price drops a bit. Thanks mate, I guess I've had a decent run on this save. I want to go to England, it's so competitive there on this save - Chelsea would be great but I've applied and been rejected so many times on this save that I may have to go elsewhere - maybe City, they've not been as dominant on this save as you'd expect. Hopefully, you keep enjoying it!
  14. Alright, so after a short break for results day and seeing family over the bank holiday weekend, updates will return from tomorrow. Played tonight and started to enjoy the game again so hopefully we can have a good season at Wolfsburg. My ultimate aim is to win the Champions League before school restarts
  15. Thank you for your continued support on the save, I'm glad you've enjoyed it up to this point. I'll see what changes are made with FM19 and maybe I'll wait for it to come on sale then buy it like this year. If I buy it I think I will definitely write about my save on here though!
  16. Wolfsburg - 2033-34 - Pre-season Just a few deals this year. Admittedly I signed Flores because I didn't want City to have him but he is quality. Manning is de Jong's replacement. I think we did very well to get him for that fee. Likewise, English clubs like Tottenham and Man City wanted him and with me likely jumping ship to England (thinking either the easy way at Chelsea or a challenge with Wolves or Crystal Palace) in the next few seasons (might take a few easy runs at the titles in Spain and Italy first e.g. Barcelona and Juventus) it made sense to bring him across. In honesty, with results day coming up this Thursday and the start of school soon after, I think this save is coming towards its last few seasons. I usually wind down FM by this point, to be honest, but it has been different this year as I only bought the game in mid-June due to exams. Part of me wants to quit and uninstall the game as soon as I win the Champions League in truth. However, for now I'm playing on. I didn't screenshot it at the time but our Champions League draw was Juventus, Sevilla and a return to our former club Rijeka. After I left Rijeka, Dinamo dominated with Rijeka selling off most of the young talent I assembled for huge fees (Taieb Slimane is still RB Leipzig's starting keeper, unfortunately, Ogangan never hit the heights I wanted him to) but in recent years Rijeka have come back, winning three straight titles. The Croatian league is still ranked 10th in Europe, after peaking at 8th following our run to the Europa quarter-finals way back in the save.
  17. Going to be interesting to see if we get there again. And yeah, with de Jong it would've been selfish to turn down - he's coming out of his prime. Lost a load of staff this summer, nothing you can do when they want to go. Still the best in the league in most categories.
  18. Next piece of news, money is way too good for a player that old to be honest.
  19. Brilliant... I am yet to win a major league without Carcedo as assistant - he was there for one season when I won the league with Monaco Here's his replacement
  20. Wolfsburg - 2032-33 - End of Season Update Two straight league wins at least Well, what a fun experience that was. Probably the most cagey Champions League final I've had - it was so even. We couldn't take advantage of Faccin's red and then ex-Bayern player Enrique Alvarez was sent off for a second yellow which made extra time nervy. To tie it all off, another ex-Bayern player, Barrago, hit the bar with his penalty to give Bayern the win. I'm frustrated. We had a great run. The round of sixteen and quarter-finals were true battles. Surprisingly we played Athletic Bilbao in the semi-final and we dispatched them. At that point, I was convinced this was our year. Next year has to be it. Ordenewitz will turn 30, Zander 31. These players are the cornerstones of this team. League stats shown here. Ordenewitz and Bruch lead this team. Had Ordenewitz not missed two months I'm sure he would have 20+ goals and assists in the league. We'll be back stronger next year.
  21. Wolfsburg - 2032-33 - Winter Break Update We just about squeeze into first at the winter break following a shock Bayern loss. Hopefully we keep up our form. Drew Spurs, who are top of the Premier League after 20 games, in the round of 16 but hopefully we overcome them. Brilliant year for Ordenewitz. He's currently carrying a shoulder injury but luckily should be back for the Tottenham fixture.
