  1. I finished my 5th season yesterday and finally have some silverware! Managed to finish 4th in the league and get to the semi's in the League cup. However I won the Europa and the FA cup with some brilliant performances. Sanogo finished top scorer in the league and my youth facilities are starting to pump out some good prospects. Only signing I made in January of the 5th season was Jefferson Montero. Brilliant signing, only cost me 2.2m from Chelsea and he has been a breath of fresh air on the left wing. He got me many vital assists. Despite having a small squad I have coped with any injury crisis thrown at me and kept all my players happy. I feel like I should be spending more money on the team as I've got a 38m transfer budget and an extra 200k available for wages but my team is pretty strong and good prospects coming up for areas I want to strengthen. Only dramas are that Steele and Rhys Williams feel like they've achieved all they can at boro and want to move. Managed to convince them to stay for a while longer, but not sure how much more. Hopefully long enough for my youth players to make the step up
  2. We're having a few tech issues with the #FM12Xmas achievement. If they aren't fixed by 8pm UK time, we'll run it as a competition instead. Thats miles' latest tweet
  3. Apparently its not that easy IWWROCKS. Having just gone through the Christmas period in game today I've not unlocked it. Plus I've seen tweets from miles saying that its not just playing the game on christmas
  4. I'm still waiting on the twitter updates for the first clue. But should be interesting trying to figure it out
  5. I have just finished my 2014-15 season. It went incredibly well! After a very very poor start to the season and rumours of me getting the sack I managed to turn my fortunes around by switching from a 4-4-2 to a 4-1-2-2-1 (using dmc, 2mc, aml/r and a lone striker). I managed to finish in 4th place after only losing 4 league games from mid october. Several runs of consecutive wins and hard battled draws kept the form up. Lots of stand out players for me but the best has to be Yaya Sanogo. 24 goals, 12 assists and 12 MoM awards as well as being named in the premiership team of the year! Emnes also had a good season playing at AMR, scoring 18 goals and getting a place on the bench in the premiership team of the year! Jason Steele managed to keep 15 clean sheets, with much help from having Scott Dann and Kyle Bartley acting as rocks in defence. My finances are still looking healthy at the end of the season. Not gone into debt despite making a loss each month. Mainly due to my rise in wages after a few signings last summer. Very chuffed I have champions league football next season. Hopefully I can make it into the group stage just for the television revenue. My aim for next season is to try and finish in a position in the table to guarantee Europa qualification and hopefully win either the FA cup or the league cup. Didnt have much chance this season due to tough draws early on in the competition.
  6. The referee being at the opposite end of the pitch to where any tackle happens. He then somehow manages to decide it's worthy of a card. Must have some super eyesight!
  7. I've given my boro save a bit of a break but just recently got back into it. Will have a midseason update in a few days probably. Mike J - Well done on getting rid of some of those players, I've struggled to get rid of a few of them and had to wait for contracts to expire on some. Hinkel is a brilliant signing on a free, I sold him on after 2 seasons for someone younger and of enough quality for the premiership but for championship level he is amazing. If possible try and get the board to invest in the youth recruitment and training facilities. They've never turned me down and I'm getting one or two very good prospects through there each season. A lot of them seem to be strikers though.
  8. Boroboy - Ripley probably is good enough for back up in the short term. I just wanted a better quality back-up keeper especially with Steele playing in the olympics at the start of my premiership season. I wouldn't spend much on a back up keeper though, as many end up without contracts over the coming years. Ben Foster is currently unattached on my game and has been for about a year. A few european keepers get offered to me for cheap as well. I had a cheeky bid for Carlos Tevez during the summer as he was out of contract. Managed to get him to accept 53k wages and signing on fee of 1.3m and an even cheaper agent fee. However Real Madrid hijacked it at the last minute! Not that bothered as I was only trying to see if it was possible to get him on a reasonable wage rather than the daft money everyone claims he wants.
  9. Boroboy i recommend Dusan Pernis as a backup keeper, you can get him for a couple of hundred k and doesn't want that much money. I then send him off on loan as Steele never gets injured, and I can always recall him. I've finished my 3rd season finally. Managed to finish a very respectable 7th. Had a fairly hit and miss run in to season, but it's probably more indicative of what my form should have been like rather than the fluke of results I had to get me up to 4th. I have been linked to many jobs however I'm sticking with boro. Much more building needed. Due to my rather secure financial status I've decided to spend a fair bit of money. Players In: Jack Cork - 4.4m from Swansea Scott Dann - 11m from Blackburn (interesting to see how much cheaper he was a few seasons ago. He definitely looks like a top defender in summer 2014) Jordi Amat - 2.5m from Espanyol (could be a mistake but I only got him as cheap back up due to my players out) Andy King - 4m from Leicester Players Out: Eyong Enoh - 3m to AS Monaco(didnt perform as I wanted but still a tidy profit having paid 1.6m for him) Justin Hoyte - 825k to Burnley Stelios Malezas - 1m to Elche (again didnt perform in the premiership as well as I expected but still made a profit on him) Kevin Thomson - 3.5m to Burnley (he wouldn't accept a reasonable wage during contract negotiations so I got rid of him to pay to cash in) I'm having some difficulty getting rid of Bates at the minute. But other than that I am happy with my squad. Don't want to spend any more money. I have 10m in the bank and my wage bill is just under 400k a week. So hopefully I will continue to make a profit each month. Managed to make a profit of 12m overall last season. Don't think I'll do that well this year with my high spending. I've got a few good youngsters coming through, a striker and midfielder look incredibly promising. So hopefully I don't need to spend big anytime soon.
  10. Getting promoted definitely secures the finances. However I was making a profit most months whilst in Championship. I did spend most of my promotion season sitting about 4th then had a good run towards the end of the season. I've just finished the January transfer window. Season 2 in the premiership is going very well! Currently sitting in the lofty position of 4th! All those games previously ending in a draw I've been winning. With 13 wins, 1 draw and 9 losses. I managed to get into the semi final of the league cup before getting beat by Man City 2-1. Sanogo and Emnes have been in good scoring form, with 19 and 10 goals each respectively. I'm hoping to keep up this good run and finish the season strong. If I sneak a europe position then all the better. However the squad still needs massively improving.
  11. I've begun my third season (2nd in premiership) with the aim to get a solid mid-table finish and avoid the relegation dogfight for the entire season. Pretty much consolidate on last years performance. In pre-season I gave the team a gutting and managed to get my wage bill massively cut and the squad size down to something much more manageable. Players In: Jerry Vandam - Standard - (DR 5m) Kyle Bartley - Arsenal - (DC 2.1m) Erik Falkenburg - AZ - (MR 3.3m) Players Out Andrew Halliday - Free Angelos Charisteas - Free Pablo - Redondo - Free Seb Hines - Free Andreas Hinkel - Hoffenheim - 1.5m Faris Haroun - Koln - 1.2m Martin Malaury - Cagliari - 1.5m With all the changes made my wage bill has dropped from 350k a week to 280k a week. Hoping this will keep me profitable over the course of the season. Especially Since I haven't spent massively on transfers. Investment in my youth facilities has continued to improve and there is a very promising striker who is coming through the ranks and has made a few first team appearances and even scored on his full first team debut!
  12. Sam123 - I lost Mark Venus to another club early in my second season and I managed to sign Terry McDermott, I've found himt o be very good at motivating the players for team talks. Never used him for holidaying though. But could be worth a look. Glenjamin - Arnaud Sutchuin, doesn't have bags of pace but he pops up with a few goals and a lot of assists. However he will cost you a bit of cash. If you want someone cheap in season 1 then get Pablo Redondo, he did a job for me and only cost 150k(ish)
  13. Yaya Sanogo! He's good enough for championship and you can get him on loan, and probably on a free at end of season. Do you play Smallwood as a box to box midfielder? He played amazingly like that for me, scoring several goals. Have you tried playing Franks on MR? He did well for me in championship on a few games. Also I recommend checking out pablo redondo. You can get him dirt cheap and although he doesn't have much pace he does well on the wing.
  14. Finished my second season last night. It was one of those evenings where it was "just one more game." Before I knew it, the clock said 01:30 and I had better get some sleep. My premieship season started a bit indifferently. With a few good results and a few shockers but I was scraping points together and staying in the 10-15th position. However come November everything fell apart. Lots of soft goals were being conceded and by the start of January I was sat 19th in the league. Exactly where the media predicted I'd finish the season. Some changes needed to be made, however I was confident in the tactic I was playing, I just needed some better players. Or to figure out how to motivate certain players at pre-game. Anyway in January I managed to secure some good signings Players In Indrioi Sigurdsson - FC Lorient - 2m (DC) Eyong Enoh - Ajax - 1.6m (MC) Andres Guardado - Free (He was available in the summer of 2012 but his wage demands were ridiculous. By January they settled to something reasonable) Walter Gargano - Napoli - 70k It turned out at these players would help boost my league position. After a brilliant run of form and some good results, such as beating Man Utd 2-1 at home! I pushed my way back up to mid table and finished the season in 12th. Very respectable and much better than I expected or hoped. My star players for the season were Yaya Sanogo, with his 19 goals in 35 appearances, Jason Steele who kept me in so many games. Arnaud Sutchuin who came into his own during the later parts of the season, getting 9 assists and 6 goals from MR. Very good at running into the box late to meet crosses from the left at the far post. The player that surprised me the most was Luke Williams, despite starting the season as 4th choice striker, he was probably the 2nd best one come the end of the season. 5 Assists and 7 goals in 25 appearances, most of those from the subs bench. Biggest disappointments were Matthew Bates, Andreas Hinkel, Emnes, Barry Robson and Stelios Malezas. My plans for the summer this season are to get rid of a lot of the old players and start to build the squad that I want. Based around pace on the wings and a strong dominating presence up front with a quick player to feed off. The centre of the pitch is going to be the engine and have the ball winners and provide a nice solid base to build attacks from.
  15. Pre-season has been eventful in preparation for my first season in the premiership. After being given a massive transfer budget of 20m but only a wage budget of 295k I set about to strengthen my team and remove all the deadwood to make some space in that small wage budget. I think I've been pretty ruthless, but conducted some good bits of business which I hope will pay off. Players In Yaya Sanogo - Free (Auxerre - Could be the bargain of the game!) Jacon Lensky - 3m (FC Utrecht - Can play anywhere down the left side) Dusan Pernis - 200k (Dundee Utd - back up keeper) Arnaud Sutchuin - 2.7m (FC Utrecht - plays at right mid or defensive mid) Mikael Silvestre - Free (back up and a bit of experience for the defence Players Out Stephen McManus - 2m (West Brom) Julio Arca - 450k (Leeds) Nicky Bailey - 875k (Birmingham) Scott McDonald - 2.3m (R. Sociedad) Jonathan Grounds - 1.3m (Swansea) I've also managed to get rid of most of the backroom staff. I just let their contracts expire then got the training improved up to a minimum of 4 star and got the board to invest in the junior coaching since there seems to be a few hot prospects coming through. Media prediction for this season is 19th. So its going to be a tough long season I reckon. But if I can stay up and battle away I reckon I can make big improvements next year. Trying to invest in a strong young team and promote from within. Just needing the quality players now to secure my premiership status.
