  1. Napoli/Juventus Season Review 2026/2027 League Table - 2nd After a year and a half away it took me some time to get back up to speed with things, I'd resigned as Feyenoord manager after winning the league, didn't feel confident in Europe with that team and snagged the Napoli job who'd had a stinking season finishing 13th, they gave me a massive budget to spend on players, ended up forking out £100m in transfers in the space of a month, things were going okay, we were holding our own in the league and were pushing a pretty dominant AC Milan for top spot, January/February period came and we hit the slump of all slumps, 8 defeats from 10 and we soon crashed down the league. Luckily Juventus were not too pleased with Jurgen Klinsmann only having Juventus in 3rd spot so sacked him and like the managerial vulture I am I swooped in and was offered the job, guided them through the last few months to a second position finish and Champions League football next year. 2015/16 FC Haka 3rd Finnish First Division 2016/17 FC Haka 1st Finnish First Division Promoted to Premier League 2017/18 FC Haka 1st Finnish Premier League League Winners 2018/19 Gornik Leczna 1st Polish First Division Promoted to Ekstraklasa 2019/20 Slask Wroclaw 5th Polish Ekstraklasa 2020/21 Legia 1st Polish Ekstraklasa League Winners 2021/22 SK Rapid Wien 3rd Austrian Premier Division 2022/23 SK Rapid Wien 1st Austrian Premier Division League Winners/FA Cup Winners 2023/24 Hoffenheim N/A German First Division Resigned as Hoffenheim manager 2023/24 Feyenoord 10th Eredivisie 2024/25 Feyenoord 4th Eredivisie 2025/26 Feyenoord 1st Eredivisie League Winners 2026/27 Napoli N/A Serie A Resigned as Napoli manager 2026/27 Juventus 2nd Serie A
  2. It's been a while since I popped my head in here, decided to pick up my old FM16 challenge save, feels strange getting back into a save you haven't touched for a year and a half but I'm gonna give it another shot, I just can't get into FM18 this year.
  3. Feyenoord Season Review 2025/26 League Table - 1st Decided to drop my tried and trusted 5-2-1-2 that had served me quite well for a 4-3-3 formation, felt I was winning games simply because I was a stronger team and not the better side in matches and often losing really stupidly to very poor teams. This new formation was pretty dominating, often having 60% possession throughout the match and scoring for fun. Winning the league was great but once again as is often the case with my career we struggled in cup competitions, losing in only the 2nd round of the FA Cup to Jupiler League side Excelsior and losing in the Euro Cup 3rd Qualf round to FC Porto, despite being 3-0 going into the 2nd leg we were turned over 5-0 away from home. Resigned from Ivory Coast, the Confed Cup was a long way off and I really didn't fancy hanging around for it come round. Just waiting to see what the summer brings now, loaded all the top European leagues, wouldn't mind another shot at the Bundesliga after our terrible time at Hoffenheim. 2015/16 FC Haka 3rd Finnish First Division 2016/17 FC Haka 1st Finnish First Division Promoted to Premier League 2017/18 FC Haka 1st Finnish Premier League League Winners 2018/19 Gornik Leczna 1st Polish First Division Promoted to Ekstraklasa 2019/20 Slask Wroclaw 5th Polish Ekstraklasa 2020/21 Legia 1st Polish Ekstraklasa League Winners 2021/22 SK Rapid Wien 3rd Austrian Premier Division 2022/23 SK Rapid Wien 1st Austrian Premier Division League Winners/FA Cup Winners 2023/24 Hoffenheim N/A German First Division Resigned as Hoffenheim manager 2023/24 Feyenoord 10th Eredivisie 2024/25 Feyenoord 4th Eredivisie 2025/26 Feyenoord 1st Eredivisie League Winners Club 4/10 top domestic leagues (Finland,Poland,Austria,Holland) 1/10 domestic cups (Austria) 0/5 club continental championships 0/1 club world championship International 1/5 continental tournaments (ACON - Ivory Coast) 0/2 world tournaments
  4. Been away for a while but congratulations to both pug and kaiser, great achievement chaps!
  5. @ashton321 - Great to see you start out with FC Haka same as myself!
  6. Feyenoord & Ivory Coast Season Review 2024/2025 League Table - 4th A much improved season this time out, we had a late push for the title, winning 8 of the last 9 nine games losing only to the eventual champions Vitesse. Team is probably a bit on the young side, I get the Champions League vultures circling every transfer window for my young players and they almost always unsettle them and cause a dip in form, very annoying. Made it through to the Quarters of the Dutch FA Cup and lost out in penalties against a Sparta side that had zero shots on target!! Decided to take another crack at international management and with the African Cup of Nations a few months away the Ivory Coast had dispensed with their manager, so I swooped in and won the tournament! Very easy, they were probably the strongest side in it and we took Egypt apart 3-1 in the final ACON FINAL Not jumping jobs this year, going to stick it out with Feyenoord until I win this Eredivisie!! 2015/16 FC Haka 3rd Finnish First Division 2016/17 FC Haka 1st Finnish First Division Promoted to Premier League 2017/18 FC Haka 1st Finnish Premier League League Winners 2018/19 Gornik Leczna 1st Polish First Division Promoted to Ekstraklasa 2019/20 Slask Wroclaw 5th Polish Ekstraklasa 2020/21 Legia 1st Polish Ekstraklasa League Winners 2021/22 SK Rapid Wien 3rd Austrian Premier Division 2022/23 SK Rapid Wien 1st Austrian Premier Division League Winners/FA Cup Winners 2023/24 Hoffenheim N/A German First Division Resigned as Hoffenheim manager 2023/24 Feyenoord 10th Eredivisie 2024/25 Feyenoord 4th Eredivisie 2019/20 Morocco Resigned after 1 game 2024/25 Ivory Coast ACON Winners Challenge Progress Club 3/10 top domestic leagues (Finland,Poland,Austria) 1/10 domestic cups (Austria) 0/5 club continental championships 0/1 club world championship International 1/5 continental tournaments (ACON - Ivory Coast) 0/2 world tournaments
  7. Feyenoord Season Review 2023/24 League Table - 10th After the torrid time at Hoffenheim I jumped straight into a job in Holland at a struggling Feyenoord, 15th in the league and having another sorry season at the bottom of the Eredivisie. They have a pretty young side with some good players, they just lacked anyone to put the ball in the net, top scorer for the season finished on 7 goals, managed to turn their fortunes around a little bit and finished in a respectable 10th position, really hoping to push on strong next year and cause some surprises, that or hope reigning champs Ajax magically dispense of their manager and hand me the golden ticket. 2015/16 FC Haka 3rd Finnish First Division 2016/17 FC Haka 1st Finnish First Division Promoted to Premier League 2017/18 FC Haka 1st Finnish Premier League League Winners 2018/19 Gornik Leczna 1st Polish First Division Promoted to Ekstraklasa 2019/20 Slask Wroclaw 5th Polish Ekstraklasa 2020/21 Legia 1st Polish Ekstraklasa League Winners 2021/22 SK Rapid Wien 3rd Austrian Premier Division 2022/23 SK Rapid Wien 1st Austrian Premier Division League Winners/FA Cup Winners 2023/24 Hoffenheim N/A German First Division Resigned as Hoffenheim manager 2023/24 Feyenoord 10th Eredivisie
  8. Mid Season Hoffenheim Review 2022/23 Made my way from Rapid into Germany at Hoffenheim and to be honest it's been a disaster, 16 games in and after 10 defeats and only 4 wins I was on the brink of being sacked, the German league is tough, really tough. I definately rushed into this job head first thinking it was going to be as easy as my previous jobs, when in fact it was incredibly difficult. I decided to resign and leave with a shred of dignity before I was thrown under the bus by the bloodthirsty board! Already got my eyes on a few jobs but I'm going to be more considerate and think about an appointment first. Lesson learnt!
  9. The African Champions League was a major annoyance for me back in FM15, kicking off my save in S Africa it also took me three attempts to win it and you're pretty much tied there until you do win it!
  10. SK Rapid Wien Season Review 2022/23 League Table - 1st Pushed the side on this year and came out on top and captured ourselves a double! Dipped into the transfer market and forked out £2.2m on a few permanent signings in the summer to bolster the defence, despite having several big clubs in the league Sturm Graz/Salzburg/Austria Wien it was newly promoted First Division champions LASK Linz who led the league for almost three quarters of it, with us only taking control of things at the top with 6 games left to play. Failed to make the group stages of the EURO cup once again, getting dumped out by Croation side NK Lokomotiva in one of the earlier qual rounds. Cruised our way through the Austrian FA Cup picking up my first domestic cup of the challenge, beating LASK Linz to the glory once again with a 2-1 win, bonus Steam Achievement pics too! Star player of the season without question my marauding RB Ales Mateju, the guy was a beast, 13 assists, 9 POM's and an average rating of 8.06 over 29 matches. I'm actually quite torn now, wouldn't mind having a little crack in the Champions League with SK Rapid but I'm terribly tempted by some big name clubs who've sacked managers, I guess we'll wait and see! 2015/16 FC Haka 3rd Finnish First Division 2016/17 FC Haka 1st Finnish First Division Promoted to Premier League 2017/18 FC Haka 1st Finnish Premier League League Winners 2018/19 Gornik Leczna 1st Polish First Division Promoted to Ekstraklasa 2019/20 Slask Wroclaw 5th Polish Ekstraklasa 2020/21 Legia 1st Polish Ekstraklasa League Winners 2021/22 SK Rapid Wien 3rd Austrian Premier Division 2022/23 SK Rapid Wien 1st Austrian Premier Division League Winners/FA Cup Winners Challenge Progress Club 3/10 top domestic leagues (Finland,Poland,Austria) 1/10 domestic cups (Austria) 0/5 club continental championships 0/1 club world championship International 0/5 continental tournaments 0/2 world tournaments
  11. @pug 407 - You won the World Cup with Iran? That is crazy, how highly rated are their players?
  12. SK Rapid Wien Season Review 2021/22 League Table - 3rd After my resignation at Legia I struggled for a while to pick up a new club, had a few interviews with bigger European teams like Club Brugge and Anderlecht before being offered the job in Austria with SK Rapid Wien, a pretty big team certainly by my standards, they'd won the title 4 times out of the last 7 years but found themselves 2nd from bottom after 12 games and battling away in the EURO Cup group stages. It was actually my first club with healthy finances and a sizeable budget, I didn't know what to do with myself! Took the squad a little while to adapt to my 5-2-1-2 formation but after a month or two we just clicked, splashed the cash during the winter transfer window (£4.3m!!) and really picked up the pace, going unbeaten in our last 11 games winning 8. No cup success again, scrapped through to the quarter finals of the Austrain FA Cup and dumped out of the EURO Cup in the group stages. 2015/16 FC Haka 3rd Finnish First Division 2016/17 FC Haka 1st Finnish First Division Promoted to Premier League 2017/18 FC Haka 1st Finnish Premier League League Winners 2018/19 Gornik Leczna 1st Polish First Division Promoted to Ekstraklasa 2019/20 Slask Wroclaw 5th Polish Ekstraklasa 2020/21 Legia 1st Polish Ekstraklasa League Winners 2021/22 SK Rapid Wien 3rd Austrian Premier Division
  13. I don't have the same drive to succeed in international management that I do when managing a club side, I think it's the same as yourself watching players, picking a different squad for different tournaments, I just can't be bothered going to focus on the club side first and if I'm not completely burnt out I'll jump into it after. @vikeologist - That was fair, I was happy with the honourable mention!
  14. @Cardiovascular - Welcome to the challenge! Looking forward to see how the Mourinho of the Northern Irish league gets on next year!
  15. Legia Warsaw Season Review 2020/21 League Table - 1st Another Polish top flight side and once again another financial mess, I took over Legia at a time when they were scraping the financial barrel, wage budget deep in the red which left me once again with no scope to purchase players, over the course of the season we had to ship out big earners, just so we could make some moves in the winter transfer window, after shipping out a few names (including rather bizarrely Gael Clichy, no idea how that happened previously!) I managed to bring in a young French striker by the name of Edouard Odsonne who scored 10 in 15 games and an experienced Swiss keeper in Yanick Brecher, both pivitol in our title win. That said it wasn't a particularly tough season, Legia had a decent squad more than good enough to challenge for the title, we grabbed top spot early on and clung onto it for most the the season, perennial big spenders Lech Poznan struggled early, allowing us to gain the upper hand, with only defending champions Piast offering us any resistance. Despite winning the league we got ourselves dumped out of the FA Cup in the 2nd round, a rather poor showing, aswell as sadly losing out in the Euro Cup playoffs, the last step before the Group Stage, drawing the easiest of teams left in the competition, Qarabag of Azerbaijan, this was probably a blessing in disguise giving us 100% focus on the league. I also took over as manager of Morocco, I lasted one game, after being humiliated by Gabon 3-1 at home, I threw in my resignation, probably sticking to club management solely for the time being! With this success I'm now departing Legia and Poland, loaded up a few more 'stronger' European nations and discarding a few more of the weaker ones, Hungary/Romania/Czech I'm sure your leagues are lovely but you're outta here! 2015/16 FC Haka 3rd Finnish First Division 2016/17 FC Haka 1st Finnish First Division Promoted to Premier League 2017/18 FC Haka 1st Finnish Premier League League Winners 2018/19 Gornik Leczna 1st Polish First Division Promoted to Ekstraklasa 2019/20 Slask Wroclaw 5th Polish Ekstraklasa 2020/21 Legia 1st Polish Ekstraklasa League Winners Challenge Progress Club 2/10 top domestic leagues (Finland,Poland) 0/10 domestic cups 0/5 club continental championships 0/1 club world championship International 0/5 continental tournaments 0/2 world tournaments
