    Guys there's still spaces available for the team sign up. Need a few more players just to make it so we have a half decent squad.

  2. September 15th: Man.City (H) Champions Cup Grp B (1/6) After the last performance I made sure my players knew what I expected of them. They seemed to listen and on the 11th minute we grabbed the lead with J.Caicedo jinking through the defence and fired with pace under the onrushing keeper. Eight minutes later we had another chance as P.Dybala headed in from close range but the goal was ruled out for a foul on the keeper. It was too easy for my side and on the 35th minute J.Caicedo grabbed his second of the game with a low shot from six yards. The second half was four minutes old when we added a further goal with Moreira doing the honours from ten yards after running onto a H.Kone through-ball. We were dominating the game and on the 74th minute C.Redinciuc had the chance to grab a fourth goal but the Man.City keeper saved brilliantly and bravely at his feet. Six minutes later though Man.City pulled goal back with M.Cortes curling in a brilliant free-kick from 25 yards after M.Djukic fouled. Their was one more goal in the game as deep into injury time Neymar fired in the fourth and final goal from the edge of the area Barcelona 4-1 Man.City J.Caicedo 11, 35, Moreira 49, Neymar 90+2 / M.Cortes 80 M.ter Stegen (capt), I.David (C.Theunis), H.Kurt, M.Djukic, L.Shaw, Neymar, A.Piras (C.Redincluc), C.Ibarra (H.Kone), Moreira, P.Dybala, J.Caicedo Other Grp Result: Shakhtar 3-1 AS Saint-Etienne

Their was only one shot in the first half as Stafford beat my defence but the strike went well wide of the post, The second half was a lot better as my side and the Stafford side piled forward in hope of progressing. It was however Stafford who grabbed the first goal just before the hour as T.Waite rose above my defence and headed past J.Reynolds to give them the lead. On the 73rd minute we had our first chance with M.Williams crossing into the area but R.Holland headed just over the crossbar. Eleven minutes later we managed to pull level as H.Limb showed great vision to dink the ball over the keeper from just outside the area With the referee getting ready to blow the whistle H.Limb scored the winner with a powerful strike from twelve yards to send us through to the Play-off Final Stafford Rangers 1-2 Matlock Town T.Waite 59 / H.Limb 84, 90+4 J.Reynolds, J.Doyle, A.Yates, P.Ayres, K.Wallace (M.Ellroy), M.Williams, T.Cribley, S.Harrad, M.Templeton, H.Limb, M.Newsham (R.Holland) Attendance: 2,365 (689) The Play-off final will be played at the Pirelli Stadium, Burton-on-Trent on the 15th May 2018

    April 28th: Halesowen Town (A) (46/46) Three minutes into the game Halesowen took the lead as J.Gardiner showed my defence a clear pair of heels and fired past J.Reynolds with ease. On the 19th minute it was two nil as J.Gardiner fired in a second goal with a low shot which J.Reynolds should have done better to save. We were all over the place and with six minutes remaining in the half Halesowen made it three nil as J.Hargreaves headed in from close range after some woeful defending. On the 43rd minute we put alittle bit of hope back in the players as S.Harrad headed with power past the Halesowen keeper from a M.Templeton cross. The second half was six minutes old when we pulled another goal back with S.Harrad firing in from the penalty spot after H.Limb was fouled in the area. On the 64th minute we managed to pull level as H.Limb saw the chance to score as he ran through the defence with ease and wasted no time in firing into the bottom corner. It was one way traffic by my side and on the 76th minute we grabbed the winner with M.Templeton curling in off the upright after seeing the keeper off his line Halesowen Town 3-4 Matlock Town J.Gardiner 3, 19, J.Hargreaves 39 / S.Harrad 43, 51 pen, H.Limb 64, M.Templeton 76 J.Reynolds, J.Doyle, A.Yates, D.Wiley, K.Wallace, M.Williams, T.Cribley (M.Newsham), J.Jackson (inj 56-A.Tingey-Kerry), M.Templeton, H.Limb, S.Harrad (R.Holland) Attendance: 460 (28) After the game I was informed that J.Jackson will be out for around two months after breaking his toe during the game.

  5. September 2026: September 10th: The odds for the Champions Cup have been released and we have been quoted a 7-1 with Man.City, Man.Utd and Paris Saint-Germain made joint 5-1 favourites September 12th: A.Bilbao (A) (3/38) A.Bilbao controlled the first half with ease and on the 25th minute they took the lead with J.Gohl beating the offside trap and firing under M.ter Stegen. Soon after they had another chance with a long range effort which saw my keeper at full stretch to save. With three minutes remaining in the half they had another chance to score with a curling effort which went just wide of the post. The second half wasn't much better and on the 49th minute I was forced into a change after P.Panagiotidis received a blow to his head and needed replacing, C.Theunis came on as his replacement. Six minutes later A.Bilbao grabbed a further goal with D.Imaz rising above my keeper and headed a looping cross past the keeper. On the hour mark my side was reduced to ten men after C.Theunis was sent off for a poor challenge. A.Bilbao were by far the better side and on the 79th minute they made it three nil with a low shot from inside the area. However three minutes later we pulled a goal back as Moreira intercepted a loose ball and fired past the opposition keeper.

  9. August 30th: Coruna (H) (2/38) Before the kick off I was informed that was my 300 game as a manager, hopefully it will be winning 300th game. We struggled to get going in the first half with my side struggling to string more than a couple of passes together. We finally had the first chance of the game on the 33rd minute as Neymar jinked into the area and fired towards goal but the Coruna keeper saved well to deny him. With four minutes remaining in the half Coruna were reduced to ten men after J.Vicente was sent off for a two footed lunge on E.Ramirez. The second half saw my players upping their level and on the 53rd minute we had another chance to score with P.Dybala heading a L.Shaw cross towards goal but the keeper saved well. Fourteen minutes later we finally broke the deadlock with H.Moreno unleashing a thunderbolt into the top corner from outside the area. On the 73rd minute we grabbed another goal with Neymar showing some skill to beat the defence and keeper to slot home into the empty net. It was becoming too easy and with ten minutes remaining in the game we were awarded a penalty after E.Carvalho was brought down in the area, P.Dybala stepped up and fired the penalty with pace just past the keepers outstretched arms to give us a convincing final forty five minutes Barcelona 3-0 Coruna H.Moreno 67, Neymar 73, P.Dybala 80 pen M.ter Stegen (capt), H.Kone, H.Kurt (H.Moreno), M.Djukic, L.Shaw, P.Panagiotidis, A.Piras (J.Mario), E.Carvalho, Neymar, E.Ramirez (Moreira), P.Dybala Booked: E.Carvalho, A.Piras So my 300th game was a winning game, here are my stats up to date:- Played: 300 Won: 169 Drawn: 48 Lost: 83 For: 618 Against: 396 Manager Awards: 14 Career Earnings: £1,100,000 Players Sold: 19 Players Released: 23 Total Transfer Fees Received: £26,000,000 Highest Fee Paid: £1,100,000 for Luka Belic Highest Fee Received: £22,500,000 for Gianluca Mancini August 31st: Transfer news sees A.Pulvirenti moving to West Brom for a fee of £7,750,000 which could rise to £10,000,000 and R.Turrion joining A.Pamplona for a fee of £1,500,000 which could rise to £1,900,000.

    April 21st: Stourbridge (H) (45/46) A minute into the game we took the lead as H.Limb ran from kick off and fired with pace under the keeper. Soon after H.Limb had another chance to score with a long range effort which had the Stourbridge at full stretch to save. We were in control of the game and on the 23rd minute we had another chance with a curling effort from M.Williams which clipped the top corner of the crossbar. Seven minutes later though Stourbridge were awarded a penalty after D.Wiley was adjudged to have handled in the area (with his chest). I was livid and was warned about my behaviour, the resulting penalty saw L.Benbow firing in. At the half time whistle I was far from happy with the referee and was sent to the stands for the final forty five minutes Four minutes into the half Stourbridge took the lead as J.Dolling rose above the defence and headed a cross past J.Reynolds. On the 62nd minute Stourbridge had another chance to score as they ran through my defence with real ease and fired towards goal but J.Reynolds saved well. Twelve minutes later we came close to grabbing the equaliser as M.Newsham tried his luck from the corner of the area but the Stourbridge managed to get his finger tips on the ball to save the day. Matlock Town 1-2 Stourbridge H.Limb 1 / L.Benbow 30 pen, J.Dolling 49 J.Reynolds, J.Doyle, A.Yates, D.Wiley, K.Wallace, M.Williams, T.Cribley, M.Newsham, A.Tingey-Kerry, H.Limb, R.Holland Attendance: 445 (26) April 23rd: As expected the FA have banned me from the final game of the season for my outburst to the referee, which after reviewing the replay shows I was correct.
  11. August 24th: Espanyol (A) Spanish First Division (1/38) The game started slowly and on the 17th minute we came close to taking the lead with P.Dybala running through the defence but his final effort went wide of the post. Eight minutes later we had another chance with P.Panagiotidis crossing into the area but E.Ramirez headed just over the crossbar when it was easier to score. We were making it look easy and on the 36th minute we grabbed the lead as A.Piras saw the keeper off his line and dinked the ball with skill from just outside the area. The second half saw us carrying on the forward pressure and on the 54th minute P.Dybala had the chance to score but his final shot went well wide of the post. Ten minutes later L.Shaw crossed deep into the area but E.Carvalho headed straight into the keepers arms. We were completely in control of the game but we couldn't add to our tally. Espanyol 0-1 Barcelona A.Piras 36 M.ter Stegen (capt), H.Kone (H.Moreno), H.Kurt, M.Djukic, L.Shaw, P.Panagiotidis, A.Piras, E.Carvalho (J.Mario), Neymar, E.Ramirez (Moreira), P.Dybala Booked: M.Djukic Injury news after the game sees E.Ramirez out for around 3-5 days after straining his thigh during the game August 27th: Some good news on the injury front sees B.Mendy back in full training following his recent back injury In other news the draw for the Champions Cup Group Stage taken place and is as follows:- Group A: Chelsea (ENG), A.C.Milan (ITA), Dortmund (GER), Fenerbahce (TUR) Group B: Man.City (ENG), Barcelona (ESP), AS Saint-Etienne (FRA), Shakhtar (UKR) Group C: R.Madrid (ESP), SLB (POR), Palermo (ITA), Red Star (SRB) Group D: OM (FRA), Sporting (POR), Anderlecht (BEL), Olympiakos (GRE) Group E: Paris Saint-Germain (FRA), Juventus (ITA), Zenit (RUS), Dinamo (CRO) Group F: AS Monaco (FRA), Bayern (GER), INTER (ITA), Dinamo Buc.

    It's all in a good Cause, Way down in Derbyshire

    April 14th: Grantham Town (H) (44/46) Yet again another poor start saw us a goal down in the 3rd minute as A.Wright sprinted through my defence with real ease and fired under my keeper. Soon after we went a further goal down but luckily for us the assistant referee had raised his flag for offside. Just before the half hour we came close to losing yet another goal as a poor clearance by J.Reynolds was intercepted but the effort was fired well wide of the post. Grantham were all over us and on 44th minute J.Reynolds redeemed himself with a fine save which Grantham a second goal. The second half wasn't much better but on the hour mark we had our first chance of the game as H.Limb fired weakly at the keeper after running onto a loose ball. On the 71st minute Grantham came close to making it two nil with a powerful strike which was blocked on the line by P.Ayres. Grantham carried on the pressure but deep into injury time we countered one of their many attacks and S.Harrad fired with power past the Grantham keeper to give us the most undeserving point of the season Matlock Town 1-1 Grantham Town S.Harrad 90+1 / A.Wright 3 J.Reynolds, J.Doyle, A.Yates, P.Ayres, K.Wallace, M.Williams (A.Tingey-Kerry), T.Cribley, M.Newsham, M.Templeton, H.Limb, R.Holland (S.Harrad) Attendance: 522 (24)

    Hi Apato 13 and welcome to FMS, please be aware of our House Rules regarding pictures. Feel free to carry on posting and looking forward to see how your career goes Mark
  15. Cheers Gav, its good to have you along mate. To be fair I never really noticed that their aren't many stories involving big clubs on the boards EvilDave the pressure I can imagine will be huge hopefully I'll be able to cope. The seasons have flown by since the start of my save and the few months in Sheffield August 19th: Real Madrid (Camp Nou, Barcelona) Super Cup Final 2nd Leg (agg 3-2) We had a slender lead going into the second leg and I told the players not to get too complacent. We started well and it took till the 20th minute for us to have the first shot as P.Dybala ran onto a P.Panagiotidis through-ball but his final effort went wide of the post. Eight minutes later we had another chance with a curling effort from J.Marquez from outside the area but A.Abdi saved well to deny us. On the 33rd minute Real Madrid had their first chance as F.Colidio saw M.ter Stegen off his line and tried a cheeky lob however the ball failed to dip enough and it landed on top of the net. Five minutes later the first goal was scored as E.Raminez barged into the area and slotted in a P.Panagiotidis low cross under A.Abdi's body to send us into the half time break 1-0 up and 4-2 up on aggregate. The second half started with Real Madrid nearly scoring within two minutes as M.Boumelaha ran through my defence with ease but M.ter Stegen saved well to deny him. On the hour J.Hernandez had the next chance for Madrid after rising above the defence and heading a D.Bruno cross towards goal but M.ter Stegen again saved well. With twelve minutes remaining in the game Madrid had yet another chance to score as T.Mala threaded the ball brilliantly between H.Kurt and H.Kone but M.ter Stegen reacted well and smothered the ball bravely at the feet of P.Mbarga. On the 89th minute Madrid finally scored with J.Carlos firing with power past M.ter Stegen but it was too little too late for Madrid and I've won my first trophy as Barcelona manager. Hopefully the first of many Barcelona 1-1 Real Madrid E.Ramirez 38 / J.Carlos 89 Barcelona: M.ter Stegen (capt), H.Kone, H.Kurt, J.Gimenez (M.Djukic), L.Shaw, P.Panagiotidis, J.Marquez, E.Carvalho (J.Mario), Neymar (Moreira), E.Ramirez, P.Dybala Real Madrid: A.Abdi, P.Lirola, L.Jose, J.Mere (capt), U.Toprak, D.Bruno, T.Mala, A.Halilovic (J.Carlos), M.Boumelaha, J.Brandt (P.Mbarga), F.Colidio (J.Hernandez) Booked: E.Carvalho, P.Dybala (Barcelona) / M.Boumelaha, U.Toprak, P.Lirola (Real Madrid) After the game I was informed that J.Marquez will be out for around a month after straining his groin during the game
