  1. Just had without question the most sublime goal I've scored on FM '10. :thup:

    Striker takes the ball down the left, surges past the fullback, cuts into the box parallel with the end line, sidesteps a center back, shoots, hits the inside of the far post and it bounces in. \o/

    Pretty cool when you're shaking your head at the little 3D figures. :D

  2. Copa Sudamericana - 1st Round

    Another poor performance in the Sudamericana. We defeated Independiente pretty confidently in the prelim round but was shocked by Columbia's Santa Fe although we only went out on penalties.

    Copa Libatadores - Semi Final (Group A)

    A much better performance in this cup competition. We were drawn with league rivals River, Ecuador's Barcelona and Paraguay's Cerro Porteno. We accumulated 11 points and finished second behind a strong River side. We drew Germio in the 2nd round, defeating them on away goals. Next up was another Brazilian side, Cruzeiro. We sneaked past them too by just one goal in a 3-2 aggregate win. That put us into the semi's where we were drawn against fellow Argentinian side Newell's. We were poor, we lost 2-1 at theirs and couldn't penetrate their defences in the return home leg.

    That's okay, you want to prioritize Libertadores. :D

  3. Heh, spotted this one.

    Cadca were relegated from the Slovakian Second Division.

    They were 0-1-32. :D

    Even more impressively, they scored EIGHT goals all season. And conceded 104. :D

    Their lone point came in a 1-1 home draw against Lucenec (also relegated. Probably should have been automatically relegated at the final whistle :D)

    They lost three matches 8-0. And one of those was immediately followed with a 7-0 loss. They had a run of 12 consecutive matches in which they didn't score.

    Now that is impressively terrible.

  4. Holy christ.

    FA Cup at lower-league opposition. They go ahead after 15 minutes on (yet another) 25-yard screamer. We get the equalizer almost immediately with our first DFK goal in the 1+ year I've been at the club. Then we go ahead 5 minutes later.

    Second half we're looking comfortable, only for a 63rd minute shot to take a deflection off one of my players into our own net. So now it's 2-2 and we end up going to extra time.

    We go ahead almost straight from the kickoff, so we're up 3-2 in extra time.

    Then they equalize in the 112nd minute. Only for my players to summon up one last burst of energy to stick the eventual winner home in the 116th minute.

    So we win 4-3. A goal from a direct kick, an own goal, 3 goals in extra time. Match had a little bit of everything in it. One of those games that neither side deserves to lose, and you breathe a sigh of relief that you're on the positive side of the scoreline.
