  1. Thankyou to everyone who contributed, and to those who read it but didn't want to post. I hope you all enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed making it. I won't be doing another FM17 career thread, but I've already got something in mind for FM18.
  2. And finally, my manager profile at the end of what has been an epic career
  3. Before I go, here are complete records for all the leagues and competitions I managed in
  4. Thanks mate
  5. And here are my final career stats as I resign the Chelsea job to retire from football
  6. The Champions League Final traditionally begins with the Champions League anthem and then it's time to introduce today's teams I got my hands on the trophy and here are the goals from an epic night in Madrid to bring the season, and my career, to a brilliant conclusion
  7. We didn't manage to win the FA Cup, going down to a deserved, but narrow, 2-1 defeat to Man City
  8. We managed to go the rest of the season unbeaten in the league, and progressed to the Champions League final too which was enough to win the title as the table ended up looking like this, with one of my old clubs surviving at the expense of another
  9. April wasn't perfect by any means but we sit top of the league, we're in the FA Cup Final, and through to the Champions League semi final where we'll face Borussia Dortmund for a place in the final, which will be very tough whoever gets through
  10. The Champions League Draw looks interesting too as does the semi final draw for the FA Cup
  11. We had a perfect March and we're now 5 points clear, with Man Utd having played their games in hand already
  12. If this was the start of a long term career, I'd totally agree, but as previously stated, my only remaining objective is to win the CL. Therefore, that's the priority. If I don't do it this season, as long as we get a top 4 finish, we get a Champions League place next season, hence why I'm still trying to do well in the league, but will occasionally rest players, eg ahead of a CL game.
  13. An unbeaten February and we're still top of the table
  14. Too many games in January caught up with us and we remain top, but Man Utd have 3 games in hand
  15. Thanks Bitner In truth, I'm not that worried about winning the Premier League again. Sure, it would be nice, but the priorities have to be 1. Winning the Champions League and 2. Finish in the top 4 so that if we don't win it, I get another crack at it next season.
