  1. I appreciate any help I can get. I feel like sticking here is the best option at the moment just in case I manage to pull off the unthinkable with Uruguay. I don’t personally see it happening but I never know. If not then it’s been a real learning curve. I’ve really enjoyed the challenge and will definitely be returning on the next edition. It’s taken me to places I’ve never dreamt of going before and there’s definitely some more I’d like to try next year. I think my issue was that I steered clear of international management for too long. Then left myself in a position where I needed both the Copa America and the Euros and they run simultaneous to each other. It’s definitely been a learning curve in how to approach the international side of things.
  2. @vikeologistthe issue is that I have been rejected by both Brazil and Argentina on multiple occasions. My hope was that with Uruguay I may produce a shock or at least go far in the tournament to gain the notice of those big nations. Trust me I have been holidaying between tournaments but I feel I may have become a bit stuck for spending too long out of club management, I’ve never gone this far into a save (my previous furthest was about 2040) so I don’t really understand all the mechanics of it if I’m honest.
  3. I’ve been a bit lax with regards to FM recently but I am still plodding along with this challenge. I resigned from USA barely six months into the role after losing 0-3 to Mexico in the final of the North American Nations League and finding out they didn’t enter the Copa America. I then remained unemployed until the turn of the century (🙈🙈🙈) desperately seeking a position in South America. Eventually I was employed by Uruguay. So far my time has gone ok but in truth we stand no chance of winning the upcoming Copa America. Hopefully I can put in a decent enough showing to be given a position with a new nation to try and win it in four years time. In honesty I think my chance to complete this challenge has gone though, especially with only a couple of weeks to go until FM 22 is released.
  4. Career Update: September 2095 Having finally got my hands on the European Championships with Italy it would be a long three years before I managed to pick up a new gig in international management. When I say a new one, ironically it would be yet another second stint with a nation as I made my return to the USA over twenty years after winning the Gold Cup and walking away. My goal here is a simple one, although I am not sure if actually achieving it will prove as simple. I'm here to win the one trophy that has eluded my career so far, the Copa America. Having looked around for various jobs in South America it became increasingly clear that I wasn't likely to be offered a position. For that reason I set my sights on the USA who from what I have seen have competed at some of the previous editions of the Copa America. There is an edition of that competition next summer and I am really hoping that USA are in it and I will get an opportunity to lift the trophy. The USA side are ranked 15th in the world meaning that we should be pretty competitive. We won't enter it as favourites, but we definitely stand a chance of going a long way. Before that is the North American Nations League though and with it the opportunity to lift yet another honour. Hopefully this challenge has just one year remaining for me, although I have a feeling it may be a little longer than that. I may have to put in a good showing with the USA in order to pick up a position at one of the big South American sides.

  5. @Cueboy_3143 I’ve never done the challenge myself but normally you just create and add a new manager. Holiday to the required date. Add a new manager to the required club and then retire him. That should make the required club manager free. Then add a new manager to the club you want to take over and get playing.
  6. Italy: 2092 European Championships After suffering defeat in the 2090 World Cup final it was me that the Italian FA turned to in order to try and win the European Championships two years later. My takeover was exciting and everything went to plan in my early stages at the helm. My first challenge was to navigate the Nations League and we did it in style. We won all of our group matches to book our spot in the semi finals and with hope of winning the competition. A last gasp goal saw off the number one team in the world in Portugal and booked us a place in the final against France, my former side. We produced one of the best performances I have seen during my career as we absolutely blitzed our way to the Nations League crown. We were sublime from the first whistle and never looked in doubt of winning it. A fantastic start to my reign and one that would set up our qualification campaign for the aforementioned Euros. Again we controlled our campaign from start to finish to book our spot in the main tournament. We were superb at the back and absolutely sublime up top as we romped our way to a position as group winners and qualification with ease. A 2-2 draw against Bulgaria was our only negative, but thankfully that result came after we had already secured our qualification and so wasn’t particularly relevant in the end. An 11-0 drubbing of Gibraltar was our most pleasing performance but in truth we were brilliant throughout. With that our preparations for the European Championships was over and it was time to take part in the one tournament that really mattered. I came to Italy to win this, and in all honesty it was the only thing my reign would be judged upon. We entered it with a superb record, winning all but one of my matches at the helm. Goal scoring hadn’t been a problem and defensively my side was well equipped and solid. I was confident we could go a long way in the tournament and to be honest anything other than a trophy would have to be judged as a disappointment. Our tournament began in the worst way as we found ourselves fighting back from behind against Norway in what looked like a real banker of a game. Thankfully we did complete a tour around victory though, winning 2-1 to get our tournament up and running. Next up we faced Romania who had shockingly defeated France in their opening match. We weren’t at our best but a goal in each half gave us a 2-0 victory and progression into the knockout rounds with a game to spare. A late goal saw us defeat the French 1-0 to complete a clean sweep in our group. The knockout stages of the tournament proved fairly straightforward as our solid defensive line helped us to pick up progression relatively easily. We got fortunate with a fairly nice run to the final but still had to pick up results and we did. We scored goals and looked dangerous throughout but it really was defensively where we impressed. The final would see us take on the ever impressive Portugal who would definitely give us a real tough task. They did indeed give us a tough game as we had to fight all the way until the end to get our hands on the trophy. We actually did well to hold on throughout the initial 90 minutes before we improved during extra time and created more than our opponents. We took the lead right on the stroke of half time extra time and I thought that would be enough to see us home. It wouldn’t be though, a debatable penalty right at the death forcing us through the agony of a shoot out. Thankfully we held out nerve to win though, leaving me with just the one trophy left to collect. It’s taken me a lot longer than anybody else but we are at least close to the end now. I walked away from my job with Italy once our celebrations had died down and looked for a job in South America looking to chalk off the last remaining trophy, the Copa America Season Club Competition Position Notes & Achievements 2020/21 Uthongathi FC SA First Division 2nd 2021/22 Uthongathi FC SA First Division 1st (C) SA First Division Winners 2022/23 SuperSport United SA Premier 2nd SA Knockout Cup Winners 2023/24 SuperSport United SA Premier 3rd 2024/25 SuperSport United SA Premier 2nd Confederations Cup Winners, SA Cup Winners 2025/26 SuperSport United SA Premier 1st (C) SA Premier League Winners, SA Cup Winners, CAF Super Cup Winners, Super-8 Cup Winners, 2026/27 SuperSport United SA Premier 3rd SA Knockout Cup Winners, CAF Champions League Winners 2027 Beijing Gouan Chinese Super League 6th 2028 Beijing Gouan Chinese Super League 2nd Chinese FA Cup Winners 2029 Beijing Gouan Chinese Super League 2nd Asian Champions League Winners, Chinese FA Cup Winners 2030 Beijing Gouan Chinese Super League 1st (C) Chinese Super League Winners, Chinese Super Cup Winners 2031 DC United MLS East Conference 6th 2032/33 River Plate Argentinian Premier 5th Copa Argentinos Winners 2033/34 River Plate Argentinian Premier 2nd Copa Sudamericana Winners, Copa Argentinos Winners, Argentinian Super Cup Winners, Sudamericana Super Cup Winners 2034/35 River Plate Argentinian Premier 2nd Copa Libertadores Winners, Sudamericana Super Cup Winners 2035 Seattle Sounders MLS Western Conference 5th MLS Western Conference Winners 2036 Seattle Sounders MLS Western Conference 1st (C) MLS Cup Winners, Supporters Shield Winners, MLS Western Conference Winners, Leagues Cup Winners 2037 Seattle Sounders MLS Western Conference 1st MLS Western Conference Winners, Supporters Shield Winners, Campeones Cup Winners 2038/39 Mainz FC/ Schalke 04 Bundesliga -

  7. Italy Takeover: 2090 My quest for a new job went on for two years until finally I was given my return to management. An efficient Italian side had narrowly lost in the World Cup final to Mexico and relieved their manager of his position. I applied alongside a host of other international jobs and was eventually chosen as the new Italy manager. My target here is simple, and that’s to win the European Championships in a couple of years time. The squad here is fantastic and ranked 2nd in the world rankings. I have faith I can do it, and that would leave me with just the Copa America to conquer. In the immediate future is the Nations League and hopefully I can use that as an opportunity to get my squad chosen and used to my tactical approach. I’m excited to be here, and so is the Italian footballing world. Hopefully this will be a quick job just to chalk off the tournament I need.

  8. France: 2088 European Championships I hoped losing in the semi finals of the World Cup wouldn’t have us fighting off any sort of hangover, but it definitely did. The Nations League would take place in the months following the World Cup and we would go in and have an absolute stinker. Two wins opened us up before we lost two and drew two to miss out on the knockout stage of the competition. Turkey finished as our group winners although we did manage to finish above Serbia and Romania. It wasn’t a very satisfying run for us though. After that disappointment we moved on to the real important stuff though, qualification for the upcoming European Championships. We were handed a pretty simple qualification group but did a very efficient job of booking our spot in the tournament. We secured qualification after six straight wins and would go on to end the group unbeaten and with a very healthy goal difference. A 3-3 comeback draw with Belgium a particular highlight as we chased an unbeaten campaign. Making the tournament proper was an absolute must and we ended up doing it in style. We entered the tournament ranked number six in the world and listed among the favourites to win it. For me winning it was vital as I look to finally chalk off the two remaining trophies I need for the challenge. We entered it with a pretty straightforward squad and ready to challenge for the honour. Prior to the beginning of the tournament we beat Austria and Iceland in a couple of warm up friendlies too, the perfect preparation. We were drawn into w tough group but did a really efficient job to qualify as group winners. We opened up with a tight 1-0 victory over Slovenia, a game in which we dominated but wouldn’t score until the final ten minutes. After that we saw off Germany 3-1 in a real thriller of a game. We made a few changes for the final group game having already clinched qualification, seeing off Wales to reach the knockout stages. That was as far as we managed to go though, crashing out to an efficient Belgian side in the Second around. My hunt for this trophy goes on. Unsurprisingly my position as French manager was ended as the tournament concludes. Now I hunt for a new nation to have another go at trying to chalk off the two remaining trophies I require.

  9. France: World Cup 2086 My departure from Columbia left me feeling a little sad after investing a large amount of my time in trying to win the Copa America with them. In the end my record was pretty decent though. We reached the final of said Copa America twice and although we lost them both by a single goal that’s a pretty decent achievement in itself. On top of that there were a further two appearances in Quarter Finals at the World Cup. We simply couldn’t get over the line though and I wasn’t surprised to be sent packing from my position. In truth I’d already decided that I would depart at the end of the Copa America 2084 anyways, although hoping to have gone further than a Quarter Final exit to the USA. I remained unemployed for just shy of a year, desperately hinting out a new international position. The club side of this challenge is done for me and time is running out before I get my PlayStation and shelf this save. Eventually I was picked up as the new manager of France, who relinquished their previous manager the same time I departed Columbia. The early days of my reign went well. We suffered a loss at home to wales 0-2 in World Cup qualifying, but thankfully won four matches to pip them on goal difference. After that we beat Bosnia in a friendly in March before seeing off South Africa 3-0 as a warm up to the World Cup. The World Cup wasn’t my focus really with the European Championships the trophy I need to complete Europe. That being said it would prove important to impress the French FA with a good showing here in order to keep my job. A 1-1 draw with Australia wasn't a particularly impressive start, but we did well to bounce back and see off Haiti to qualify for the knockout stages as group winners. First up was a pretty comfortable and comprehensive win over Norway before we faced our first real test of the tournament. An entertaining tie with England went from one end to the other, eventually ending 3-3 after extra time. We missed our first penalty but then scored the remaining as two English players missed. Victory putting us into the Quarter Finals where we met another stern task in Brazil. We absolutely dominated the game but just didn’t take our chances. After extra time the game ended 2-2 and meant a second shoot out of the tournament. The shoot out was intense before we prevailed 6-5 to reach the semi finals. The semi final was where our run would end though, matching the expectations of the FA pre tournament. A narrow defeat to Portugal after extra time sending us packing. We actually dominated the game but we’re wasteful in front of goal. We did manage to win the 3rd placed play off though, a 3-0 victory ending our tournament. Since then we’ve moved onto qualification for the European Championships. We have three wins from three so far which is very pleasing. The Euros are my focus with France and now the preparations begin to get us into a position to try and win it and chalk off the trophy.

  10. @Fizzle some great work there mate! Argentina is the nation I am targeting for the Copa America now, even if I’m 50+ years past you 😂😂😂
  11. Columbia: 2084 Copa America I spoke in the aftermath of our World Cup exploits about wanting to return to club management whilst preparing to take Columbia into the Copa America. I did briefly make a wave in club football taking over Colo-Colo in Chile. My entire tenure lasted just 42 days as I realised with the club side of this challenge complete I had no interest in continuing within it. I did pick up a Chilean Super Cup whilst there, but quickly handed in my resignation to focus on my role with Columbia. The next year or so following the World Cup saw us play a number of friendly matches and the first few of our qualifiers for the next World Cup. We avoided defeat for ten matches after our World Cup campaign, drawing a couple but looking generally impressive. This was all the more pleasing in that we tried out a large number of new players and handed out a fair few debuts. We lost to Brazil 1-3 in a World Cup Qualifier but sit comfortably in 2nd spot with those our only dropped points so far. We headed for the Copa America in good spirits and excited of what was to come. Our squad was generally as expected although we did include a couple of uncapped players. The draw wasn’t kind to us though and we were handed a very tough group. Peru and Ecuador looked simple enough but we were handed Brazil, Uruguay and Mexico as well. Frustratingly we were kept apart from Paraguay, USA and Venezuela. This meant our conquerors from four years ago Argentina were handed a very friendly looking group. We began the tournament brilliantly, racing into a 3-0 first half lead against a tricky side in Peru. They put together a mini fight back in the second half and in the 82nd minute pulled the game back to 3-2. Thankfully we cling on though to grab the victory. Next up was a couple of really frustrating matches. Firstly we lost a tight and even affair 0-1 to Brazil before we dominated Uruguay but ended up with just a goalless draw. We recovered well to smash Ecuador 4-0 though, with it booking our place in the Quarter Finals. A scrappy 0-1 defeat to Mexico on the final match day saw us finish in 3rd place, drawing USA in our Quarter Final. Shockingly our run would end in the very first knockout game though. We dominated the game against USA but found ourselves desperately chasing a goal having conceded early on. We equalised midway through the second half but then simply could not find a second. The game would go to penalties and we would lose out despite failing to score just one. Unsurprisingly our shock exit would be my last match in charge of Colombia as I was sacked in the aftermath of the tournament. In truth I had already decided to leave after this tournament anyways, although being sacked never fails to hurt. I find myself still chasing those two major tournaments though and will continue to do just that. I immediately applied for both the Brazil and Argentina jobs but was rejected. Somewhat surprisingly in my eyes. I have a couple more applications in with European nations but so far several months has passed and I haven’t been responded to. The positions are still open though, so for now it’s very much a waiting game.

  12. Columbia: 2082 World Cup Without any club football to focus on my time became solely placed with my Columbia side and trying to put together a squad of players who could end my heartbreak and win the Copa America at the third time of trying. Before that was the World Cup in Brazil though and a tough test of my credentials. We simply had to put a good showing on so I could keep my position again to go after the Copa America. We named a fairly predictable squad for the tournament, with very few surprises. There were no uncapped players and I was hoping we could put in another strong showing. Last time around we went all the way to the Quarter Finals before losing out to world number one side Spain. This time I was hoping to potentially go further than that. Preparations for the tournament in Brazil ended with a warm up friendly against Holland, the game ending 0-1 to our opponents. Not the best way to head into the tournament but I was still confident in a solid showing. The group stage draw was the kindest to us actually, as we were given a couple of tricky looking matches. First up was Turkey and we really didn’t play well. The game ended goalless but to be honest we can count ourselves lucky to avoid defeat. We created very little and put ourselves under pressure to qualify for the knockout rounds. Against Japan we would have to remain patient, but after scoring early in the second half to take the lead we managed to grab a 4-0 win and progress through the tournament. We entered the knockout phase of the tournament looking to at least reach the Quarter Final stage and match the pre tournament expectations of the Colombian FA. I expected to breeze past South Africa in the Second Round, but it took us until the 92nd minute to score and clinch victory. Progression gave us Holland in the next round and the opportunity to extract revenge on them for our warm up game defeat prior to the tournament. This time around we produced a much better performance and fully deserved the victory. Substitute Rafael Moncada gave us the lead just before the half time interval and we never looked back. Winger Kevin Caicedo added a second just before the hour mark and we cruised to victory keeping another clean sheet in the process. Having matched our achievements of four years ago by reaching the Quarter Finals we would face off against France to try and reach the last four of the tournament. We met a France side unbeaten in their last fourteen matches and looking somewhat ominously strong. We hadn’t conceded a goal in the tournament though and I was confident we had a really good chance. When Dayton Estrada converted an early penalty I had even more confidence. Just eleven minutes in and we knew that another clean sheet would put us into the semi finals. Unfortunately we conceded just before half time having been absolutely bombarded throughout. Our opponents were running the show and my side had no answers. In the end we fell behind shortly after half time and just didn’t have enough to fight back. We were deservedly beaten and crashed out of the tournament at the Quarter Final stage for the second World Cup in a row. As disappointing as it is to fall short in a major tournament once more, I am not left too down heartened. The important thing was that we put in a strong enough showing to keep me in my position for the next Copa America and we did exactly that. I can now start preparing the squad ready for that tournament in a couple of summers time. Hopefully we can go into that tournament in a good place and ready to try and put to bed the two defeats in finals that we have suffered under my management.

  13. Columbia: 2081/82 Having completed the club side of this challenge my focus has had to shift to the two remaining international tournaments I need to pick up glory in. I’ve been with Columbia for some time now and have so far been unable to pick up the Copa America. Not for the want of trying though, having been beaten in the final of the past two editions of the tournament. Having left Celtic at the end of last season it was all about getting my side ready for the 2082 World Cup. It would be important to give a good showing so I could keep my job here ahead of the next Copa America in a couple of years. Qualification for the World Cup proved easy enough although we couldn’t win the league format this time around. Argentina proved far too strong, backing up the defeat they handed us in the Copa America final. We qualified easily enough though and in truth that was all that really mattered. Outside of Columbia I am still looking for a role with a new club although not particularly hard. There is no pressure on me to try and find a new position and so I am very much taking my time to find one that interests me enough to keep going. The international side is my focus though so I can very much afford to be picky.

  14. Glasgow Celtic FC: 2080/81 Review Having clinched the Greek Cup with PAOK Salonica I made a hasty exit to join Celtic, a job I had waited patiently to become available. I wanted to join after my departure from Manchester United but the job wasn’t available. I saw it as a perfect opportunity to pick up a swift league and cup double and chalk off another two trophies towards the challenge. The inherited squad didn’t need much improvement and so our pre season transfer activity was extremely limited. I focused more on shifting on players who weren’t likely to feature and promoted a few youth players into the first team. From an early stage it became clear that we were in for a very good season. In the league we wouldn’t drop a point for our first nine matches, and wouldn’t suffer a defeat until the second Old Firm derby of the campaign. We sat top of the pile literally all season and clinched the league title with a couple of games left to go. We never raced ridiculously clear at the top but we were always comfortable on top of the pile. Most pleasing was to clinch the title with a victory over biggest rivals Rangers with a last gasp penalty giving us a 3-2 win. Defensively we were sublime all season, aided by one of my two transfers Orlando Silva. The 20-year old goalkeeper cost us £30,000,000, but was a real key performer in a back line that just didn’t concede goals. Scoring goals was never an issue, hardly surprising when you look at the goals column of the league table. Strikers Victor Velez and Obed Gallegos both got over 20 league goals, as did winger Aaron Labbate. Our top scorer was right winger Joel Medeiros though. The Andorran scored a remarkable 38 goals in his 34 appearances to help fire us to glory. We shocked a lot of people in the Champions League as we managed to win our group. Especially impressive considering we were joined by Chelsea, Lyon and Mainz and lost our opening game to the blue team from London. We bounced back by winning the remaining five games to reach the knockout stages. The dream would end their though to my former side Valencia. We were hammered 0-5 away in the first leg before producing a better display in a 1-1 draw at home in the second. The two domestic cup competitions both brought us mixed results. Delightfully we managed to lift a domestic cup and complete a memorable double. The tensest game of our run was definitely the Old Firm semi final against bitter rivals Rangers. We took an early lead and looked to be cruising towards the final before central defender Principe was dismissed midway through the second half for a last man foul. Rangers scored an equaliser from the resulting penalty and we were forced to cling on for dear life. Cling on we did though, taking the game to extra time and keeping hope for an unlikely victory. We took a shock lead against the run of play early in the extra period before being pegged back again just a few minutes later. We dug deep to hang on to the 2-2 draw though and grab an opportunity with a penalty shoot out. We took our chance by scoring all of our kicks, whilst keeper Orlando Silva saved two to put us into the final. The League Cup proved the only real disappointment though. We got through to the Quarter Finals before losing out 0-1 after extra time to Ross County in a shock result. I was left disappointed as the competition ends before Christmas and we could’ve wrapped up a trophy before the season even got close to the business end. So my time is Scotland very much classes as a job well done. I came here with the intentions of picking up a league title and a domestic cup and we achieved it during my first season at the helm. It wasn’t massively surprising and to be honest we faced very little resistance throughout. We complete a very dominant domestic campaign and with all the success I needed to make my time here memorable. I waited for the celebrations to end before walking away from my position as manager and on the hunt for pastures new. I have now completed the club phase of this challenge and require just two international honours. I debated remaining club free and focusing on those international honours but have actually decided to embark on something new. I figured I would get bored just waiting for the international fixtures and so have instead moved on and to a new challenge. I will update in due course. I now have a bit of a time restraint though. My birthday is in a couple of weeks and I have a shiny new ps5 waiting for me. That gives me a couple of weeks to try and win those remaining tournaments and complete the impossible challenge.

  15. Columbia: 2080 Copa America Having began this challenge without any aspirations of even getting close to completing it I enter this competition with a tally of just four trophies left to collect. It may have taken me over fifty years of game time but this save has had me truly gripped from my very early stages right through until now. At this stage this current edition of the Copa America feels huge though, as it’s the international side of things I can see holding me back from completion. Four years ago I took my Columbia side to the final, before we lost our narrowly to a very strong Mexico side. I felt like this time success was the only option. Especially as I am still requiring the European Championships too, a tournament that runs on the same four year cycle to this one. My squad selection for the tournament contained no real shocks. There was real quality spread throughout, and the only surprise was my inclusion of a 36-year old midfielder who I had never named in a match day squad. His versatility my reason for inclusion, but it certainly raised a lot of interest prior to the tournament kicking off. The group stage of the tournament really couldn’t have gone any better for us. We opened by defeating Uruguay comfortably by a 3-1 score line despite using fringe and backup players. Our second game was Brazil and we twice led before having to settle for a 2-2 draw and our only dropped points of the group. A mixture of different players then saw off Ecuador (4-0, Peru (2-0) and Costa Rica (7-0) to win the group and qualify for the quarter finals. In truly gutting circumstances we lose out for the second time in a row in the final. We comfortably navigated through our quarter final with Paraguay before facing an absolute thriller against Brazil in the semis. After an hour we found ourselves 3-0 up and cruising. Our opponents then turned it in though and within fifteen minutes it was 3-3 and I was fearing the worst. Then with just six minutes remaining Liverpool striker Larry Maldonado completed his second hat trick of the tournament to put us into our second consecutive final. The final was cagey and to be honest we can count ourselves extremely unlucky. We fell behind to a goal against the run of play but then struggled to create chances to get back into the game. Despite controlling the majority of the game we were beaten and my quest for the Copa America crown will continue. A really disappointing end to another fantastic tournament for me and my Columbia side. We were yet again just a 0-1 defeat away from winning this tournament and this one definitely hits me below the belt. Two consecutive Copa America finals and yet I still wait for us to actually lift the trophy. Again I see no reason in walking away and will plan to return in four years time for another go at trying to lift this elusive crown. I do now possess a new club job though and it’s the one I’ve been waiting for. They have won the league title every season for the last twenty three years and it’s the perfect opportunity for me to come in and complete the club side of this challenge. Their manager departed after the European Championships to take an international job and I quickly applied for there vacant position. This saw me sacked as manager of PAOK Salonica which simply didn’t bother me at all. I hope to polish off the league title and remaining domestic cup I require as quickly as possible and then I can focus on the remaining international honours that I require. It’s an exciting job for me though, and I am very much looking forward to what will hopefully be a campaign full of success.

  16. PAOK Salonika: 2079/80 Review My time in Greece has only been short so far, but my arrival truly sparked a mini revival in the black and white side of Salonika. I inherited a team sat in 4th place, with hopes of getting familiar with my players and them familiar with me and my style. With the transfer window firmly shut I was forced to use a hugely bloated squad which did possess a fair amount of quality. Streamlining it will be a priority in the summer though. My reign began in the toughest way as we played host to champions elect Olympiakos. We took an early lead before succumbing to a 1-3 defeat, although that would be my only taste of league defeat. The rest of our season saw us pick up five league victories and a draw to climb up to second spot in the table. A pretty fine effort, especially as we kept five clean sheets across my seven matches at the helm. Outside of the league we faced the prospect of a trophy in the Greek Cup too. I joined with the club 3-1 up on aggregate against Niki Volou in the final. We did the job in the second leg to reach the final, drawing 1-1 and booking a tough looking final against city rivals Aris. We produced a comfortable display to score twice in the first half and lift the cup. My first silverware arrives within just six weeks of my appointment and was the perfect start to life in Greece. In truth the result wasn’t ever really in doubt. We were in control of the contest from the very first whistle, and perhaps can count ourselves a little unlucky that the score line wasn’t even more emphatic. We nearly had a second taste of silverware as well, reaching the final of the Europa Conference League. The very first time the club had made it that far. My arrival saw us comfortable progress past Icelandic side Valur 6-1 on aggregate in the quarter finals before an even better effort in the semis. Facing German side Borussia Monchengladbach we won 2-0 at home before clinching a 2-1 away win a week later. Napoli proved too much for us in the final though, even though we have a really good account of ourselves. I couldn’t really have wished for a better start to life in Greece and I am very much excited for the future. We finished a long way behind champions Olympiakos but I see no reason why I can’t build a squad capable of challenging. It may take a while but I am more than happy to have a go. Saying that I do have my eyes on another job in another country. I’m happy to stay with PAOK, but if that one very specific job becomes available then I will leave in a heart beat. I won’t give a spoiler, but it’s a job with real potential to complete the club side of this challenge in quick time. For now it’s Copa America time and hopefully I can chalk off one of the remaining international honours I require.

  17. PAOK Salonika: Takeover March 2080 Following my World Cup exploits with Columbia my time on the unemployment line at club level would continue. In fact it would be just a few months prior to the Copa America of 2070 when I would finally pick up a new club job. After two seasons unemployed I finally managed to pick up a new job role and it’s an extremely exciting one. I was determined my next job would be a competitive one and one in which I could look to chalk off my last required league title. Greece has been dominated over recent years by Olympiakos meaning I join a club that needs building in order to compete. I’m excited to get stuck in though and it carries on my tradition during this save of venturing into unknown leagues and nations. Money will be tight here and it’ll be down to my scouting and tactical abilities for any success we produce during my time here. I’m keen to get stuck in though, and it’s a real exciting opportunity for me. I join with the club sat in 4th place and during the “Championship split”, where the league is separated and teams play against fellow high fliers. To be honest the league title is long gone and the remaining games will be used to get to know my players and get them used to my system. The team is still in the domestic cup though and hold a 3-1 aggregate lead after the first leg. Hopefully I can immediately pick up silverware in that sense. The squad is absolutely huge though so my current focus will be to try and win the cup whilst getting ready to have a huge clear out of our squad ahead of putting together a title charge next campaign.

  18. Columbia: World Cup 2078 Having lifted the Premier League title it was time for me to depart Manchester United and move on to the next leg of my journey. Before I put too much focus into finding a new job it was time for the World Cup though. We entered the World Cup ranked at 5th in the world and with high hopes of having a solid tournament. For me this tournament was all about survival though. I need to win the Copa America and so it was important that my team put in a good showing so that I would keep my job ahead of the next edition in a couple of years. The FA wanted a semi final spot at worse, something I felt was actually pretty ambitious. We didn’t manage to match the expectations of our FA as we were beaten in the Quarter Finals by the number one ranked team in the world. We gave Spain a really good game but ended up falling just short in a 0-2 defeat. Prior to that we had enjoyed a good tournament though and looked very competitive. The Third Round victory over Germany was our best performance as we put in a display worthy of progression against one of the strongest teams in the tournament. Thankfully the FA allowed me to remain in charge of the side, meaning I should survive through to the next edition of the Copa America. For me that was the number one goal and so to achieve it felt really important. The preparations can begin for the tournament I need to win, having lost our in the final of the last Copa America. Since the World Cup we’ve played several friendlies and I’ve experimented with some new faces. We beat China by a 1-0 score line and then faced a double header with Nigeria and England. Firstly we gave Nigeria a 4-0 hammering before three days later we picked up a creditable 2-2 draw away against England. A good result although we did twice manage to throw away a lead. Outside of my role with the Colombian side I am still unemployed. I’m waiting on the perfect job role but so far it hasn’t become available. I’m in no great rush although it would be nice to get back into club management soon that’s for sure.

  19. Manchester United: 2077/78 Review So having made the controversial jump across Manchester last season we faced complete horror as City pipped us to the league title. I'd taken Manchester City close to the crown but left as I felt I wouldn't be able to dislodge United from their Premier League dominance. How obvious would it be that after departing the blue side of Manchester would be the ones celebrating. My first campaign with United ended in real disappointment, with only a penalty shoot out victory over City in the Community Shield giving us any sight of a trophy. Preparations for my second term in charge were busy as we saw a large number of incomings and even more outgoings. I failed to shift a couple of high earning high valued players, but we still raked in over £130,000,000 in transfer fees. Arrival wise we spent just shy of £200,000,000 but brought in some real quality. 21-year old striker Olexandr Fedota arrived from Benfica in a huge £80,000,000 deal and we also signed impressive winger Furkan Polat from Arsenal in a £70,000,000 deal. I was pleased with our dealings though and confident I could go on and win that elusive Premier League trophy and complete the English leg of my managerial journey. Despite all of the hopes and dreams for the year it was not looking very promising by the time we reached the festive period. Four league defeats and a host of spurned opportunities saw us sat way down in 6th place and a mammoth 13 points behind the league leaders. We had struggled for goals and been far too wasteful in the final third. Defensively we were regularly conceding and too many times we threw away winning positions to settle for draws. At this point I decided it was a good time to try and make the team more expansive in attack. I changed our system to play much more on the front foot and look to score lots more goals. Immediately I saw improvements and we quickly began to climb up the league table and by the end of March we were back in a title race. We climbed to the summit after the thirty first matchday and never looked back. We took on our nearest rivals Tottenham on the penultimate matchday knowing that if we avoided defeat the league title would be ours. We managed a 1-1 draw with Tottenham that saw us crowned league champions with a game to spare. Victory over Bournemouth ended the campaign in the right way and sees me finally get my hands on the Premier League. A truly ridiculous record of 20 victories, 3 draws and 0 defeats since I changed our system is what did it for us, against all of the odds. We looked dead and buried in regards to the title but did unbelievably well to pull it back and eventually get the job done with a game to spare. Our remarkable run saw me win the Manager of the month award from January all the way to the end of the season in May. Quite remarkable really. Outside of the Premier League we struggled a bit this season. I put my focus into trying to win the league title and because of that quite often named squads of fringe players and promising youngsters in the cup competitions. We did lift a trophy though, putting in an efficient display to lift the League Cup. This brought a first major trophy for me with Manchester United and set us up nicely for the closing period of the season. Unfortunately we crashed out in the Quarter Final stage of the Champions League to Liverpool though, as well as suffering a surprising loss to Burnley to crash out of the FA Cup in the Fourth Round. Obviously it was disappointing to miss out on more potential silverware but in truth the cup competitions were far from my priorities this season. This season probably ends up as one of the most satisfying of my career as we right the wrong of losing the title to City last season. After a really slow start we were sublime by the end of the season and everything just ended up working out for us. It would've been nice to win another trophy or two but I can't complain. We finally win the Premier League title for me and we also added a domestic cup just for good measure. For me my time in England will now draw to a close though. Winning the league completes the haul of trophies I needed in this country and now I can move on to somewhere new. I have an exact idea of where I want to go, but for now will just sit and wait for my contract to expire. In the mean time I move my focus to my Columbia team. We qualified for the World Cup with ease, only suffering a shock defeat to Ecuador once qualification had already been secured. Since then we played just one game, losing out 2-4 to France in a friendly back in March. The World Cup is about to begin and I am a little nervous about it. I'm only really here for the Copa America in a couple of years time and so I just hope we do enough to avoid me getting the sack this summer. The Columbian FA want us to reach the semi finals of the World Cup as a minimum though, and that is a pretty big task. I'll return after the tournament with an update on how we got on.

  20. I’ve managed to get over my initial annoyance and have continued on with my United season. A tough run in certainly didn’t help us as we lost out last term but this time around I want to make sure we get it right. The season has began well enough and hopefully last season was just a little blip in the road.
  21. Manchester United: 2076/77 Review If I’ve referred to previous seasons as a disappointment then this one purely takes the biscuit. I’ve actually never been as humiliated on this game as I am right now. The lack of a proven goal scorer ends up costing us as a potentially superb season ends up with us falling short. All the jokes about my City side beating my United one proves true as we are pipped right at the end to finish second. I’ve never been so humiliated in my life and am left pondering as to even continue with this challenge. United have dominated football until I’ve got my hands on them. A truly shocking campaign ended with us pipped into second after the penultimate round of games. On top of that we lost out in both FA cup and Champions League Quarter finals as well as a League Cup semi. A humiliating season without a trophy and proven my ineptitude as a manager. I am truly heartbroken and left pondering as to even continue with this challenge. I’m utterly embarrassed right now. Jokes were made but they’ve ended up proving as a true. I have turned dominant title winners into a laughing stock.

  22. I am not going to lie and about 9 games into the season I am living this season fully in the fear of this happening. It’s definitely something I can see happening and if it does it may be time for me to hang up my mousepad and just call it quits 😂😂😂
  23. More the merrier @b4usiddhu2 I don’t see why you’ve left too short a time or wouldn’t be welcome in here. I still don’t think I’ll complete it yet either and I’ll definitely be beginning it again on fm22. Most fun I’ve had on a save in years and a really unique challenge and idea. I look forward to seeing your updates. I do believe manager has to be as young as allowed though as pretty much the only requirement. Need confirmation from @vikeologistthough.
  24. Career Update: July 2076 After a really poor season with Manchester City I looked at myself and what I felt we could achieve going forwards. I didn’t want to leave the club but toppling our rivals Manchester United looked extremely difficult. I signed a new two year deal with city shortly after the season and prior to the Copa America. Just as I started to focus on improving my City squad to try and compete for the title, legendary manager Bill Stewart walked away from his position with United leaving an opening at a side guaranteed to be there or there about in the table next season. At that stage I decided I should make all the effort in the world to take his position and cross Manchester from the blue to the red. The Red Devil’s have been a constant thorn in my side since taking on the position with City. In the end I decided that if I couldn’t beat them then I should join them. I ripped up my contract with City to make myself available before approaching the club. They interviewed me before hiring me and putting me into an unbelievable opportunity. The squad is packed full of talent and really we should definitely win the league title. That’s my only target here, and I’m planning to do it in just the one year. They've won the last three Premier League titles and last season completed a remarkable campaign, winning every trophy available. I'll be hoping to add to my own personal collection of winners medals whilst at the club. The season is nearly upon us and I haven't made any signings yet but despite of that I still feel the squad is strong enough to at least add the all important Premier League title to my collection. That one really is my priority here.

  25. Columbia: Copa America 2076 After a truly disappointing campaign with my Manchester City time it was my opportunity to put it right during the summer with my Columbia side. My first reign in charge ended after an awful performance at the Copa America, but I had much higher hopes this second time around. Ranked sixth in the world we would enter as one of the favourites and hopes were high for a good solid showing. Squad wise there were a couple of surprises and the media was left shocked as I named a couple of young talented players over more experienced heads. The squad was strong though, definitely looking to hold the quality needed to win a major international tournament. Centre back Gabriel Moreno and midfielder Yeison Martinez from my Manchester City squad were included as key components for any success. We opened our campaign with a really strong showing as we saw off hosts Uruguay by a 4-0 score. We dominated from start to finish and in truth the result was never in doubt, despite a goalless first half. Next up was a thriller with Brazil. We took the lead three times but walked away with a point after a 3-3 draw. The game was full of entertainment but we were disappointed not to win. After that we thumped Ecuador 4-0 and saw off Peru 2-1 after a last minute strike from Burnley winger Andres Ceballos. That victory saw us qualify with a game to spare. We finished off with a victory over Japan to reach the quarter finals. Our quarter final game turned into a stroll after a Bolivia player was sent off just four minutes into the contest. We strolled to the so comfortable of victories and a semi final against Brazil. In two previous meetings under my leadership we’d led Brazil four times but drawn both games. I panicked after we threw away another lead, but this time we pushed on from there. An 89tg minute goal put us back in front before we topped it off deep in stoppage time with a third. A surprise victory that put us into the final where we would meet another of my former sides, Mexico. The 2nd best team in the world. We entered the game as narrow underdogs as I looked to finally win this competition after failures previously with Columbia, Brazil and Mexico. I had high hopes though, especially having gone through the whole tournament unbeaten and relatively comfortably. Absolutely devastating to lose yet another major international tournament final and in a game that was just so even. We stood toe to toe with superior opposition but just came undone right at the very end. I was gearing up for penalties only to concede with virtually the very last kick. Truly gutting to end our tournament in such harsh circumstances. I see no reason to walk away from Columbia though, needing to chalk the Copa America off my list of required trophies. The only other international honour I need is the European Championships and they’ve only just taken place as well. Hopefully I can see out another four year cycle and my side can compete again having come so close.
