  1. You sir, are my new hero! I tip my hat to you 👌
  2. So I'm in a place with no Internet so boot up Steam to play FM in offline mode only to get a message telling me to go online to go offline? Any suggestions? I played offline every day here a couple of weeks ago and never had this!
  3. After a lot of thinking about whether I wanted to continue my stay in France, I decided to keep it going and see what, if anything I can do with Ajaccio. Now that I've had a preseason under my belt and have been able to ship out some players and improve on the squad, I'm hopeful that we can stay up - although I'd rather not let it go down to the final game this season! This season's squad: It's a trimmed down squad from last year with either players being sold or moved to the 2nd team if I couldn't find a buyer. Speaking of transfers: I'm particularly excited about 2 of the signings I made: Jessy Deminguet - Came in on a free transfer from SM Caen: Dejan Zukic - £3.5m from Partizan to play in the AP role The Zukic transfer very nearly didn't happen though, had another deal not failed to go through. My scouts alerted me to a young man coming to the end of his contract, despite showing absolutely no interest in coming to Corsica, I kept on declaring him as a target whenever I could & tried to get him to enter contract talks but to no avail. Eventually, July 1st rolled around and his contract had expired with no interest from other clubs - I was gobsmacked, so I made my move. Negotiations dragged on but eventually we struck a deal, all I had to do was wait for him to accept... To my dismay, at the very last minute Burnley made an offer and my chance was gone. Jude Bellingham would not be moving to Corsica So the season will start imminently with a trip to OGC Nice, our friendlies went well in general with our only defeats coming against Milan and Club Brugges: And we are clearly not expected to enjoy this season as is shown in our 1000-1 odds for the title: So, I'm sure this season will be a struggle but I can only give it my best and the squad do to! Allez L'ACA!
  4. That's a fine season there. PSG looked ridiculous though! We're you responsible for either of their defeats?
  5. Hopefully we'll see you back! I must admit that I have struggled to get into ACA, I've literally just finished the season and avoided relegation on the final day. I'm trying to decide whether to stick with it at the moment.
  6. I'm only halfway through season 2 in my current save but they came 2nd in the league, Arsenal won it - yes you read that right! They did win the Champions League and the Super Cup though. They currently sit 3rd after 21 games.
  7. I think the kit men forgot to speak to each other before the game...
  8. Thanks @Jogo Bonito, I'm looking forward to the challenge! Naturally, the football gods saw fit to arrange my first match as manager of AC Ajaccio against the club that recently sacked me, it went OK I guess:
  9. OK so I know I said "tomorrow" on Wednesday but I like to keep the tension up lol. My manager applied for jobs in Belgium, Spain and Italy but was unsuccessful in all of them. Offers from Paris FC and Troyes were rejected, not because I didn't want to drop down but because I was waiting on other jobs. Then, an offer out of the blue. Or Red and White.... The next destination for my manger will be somewhat further south on the Island of Corsica: Cruelly denied promotion in the real world, AC Ajaccio finished 2nd in Ligue 2 in my first game season to earn promotion. The Squad: It's quite a small squad which concerns me slightly but I will look into the 2nd team to see if there are any players that can step up. Its been a steady start in the league: The previous manager, Olivier Pantaloni (great name) earned himself a move to Bordeaux. As you can imagine I have a target to avoid relegation this season which I'm sure will be tough. Oh, and my first game?
  10. There is movement on the job front, tune in tomorrow to find out....
  11. Well it's all over. Our form was awful as yet again we simply couldn't win away from home and it finally bit me. I am now looking for a new job. The poor results saw us languishing in 16th place which was enough for the Chairman to pull the trigger. I will continue this save, whether I get another role in France though remains to be seen...
  12. @Jogo Bonito as requested, this is my current squad...
  13. Guess who's back, back again So I haven't played FM for ages but have picked up with my ASSE save from where I last posted. Preseason has come to an end and we are now ready to take on the season ahead. We had some mixed results but I haven't really read too much into them. This summer also saw the inaugural ASSE Trophy which is basically a rip off of the Amsterdam/Emirates Cup format. We invited Dortmund, Arsenal and Santander (They're a feeder club). Somewhat to my surprise we overcame Dortmund in the semi, Diony hitting a hat-trick in a 3-2 win. In the final, Arsenal and Lacazette in particular proved too much as Laca hit all 4 goals as they beat us 4-2. We'll start the season at home home to Nimes with the requirement to qualify for the Europa League this season. Seeing as we only just missed out last season I have a decent feeling that we can achieve the target, but this is FM after all! I do have a question for those more knowledgeable, I don't think I'm in the Coupe de la Ligue for some reason? Finally, I've decided to take a punt promoting this guy to the first team, I think he could be an absolute star - hopefully for me - in years to come but I'm already batting off PSG
  14. In more transfer news, Bayern wouldn't sanction a loan move for Zirkzee, so I managed to grab this guy instead
