Season 2026/27: End of Season
We had a brilliant season, and came so close to winning every competition we entered. A penalty shoot-out away from immortality.
I've moved up to 3rd in the Hall of Fame, one trophy away from overtaking Pep Guardiola who is currently managing Roma.
Absolutely terrible game of football but a De Ligt header from a corner gave us a 1-0 win over Zinedine Zidane's Arsenal:
Much better performance here, Marcus Rashford coming off the bench for a double to clinch a 3-1 win:
Eight titles in a row for us, two away from a decade now. 97 points, fighting off Zinedine Zidane's Arsenal, with Chelsea and Wolves making up the top four. Rafa Benítez's Wolves have an insane striker up front, a £59m Cape Verde international. Zinedine Zidane has since stepped down at the end of the season, probably ending Arsenal's three year title pushes against me, to join Manchester City
Kylian Mbappé won the golden boot with 24 goals, Mason Greenwood (15) and Ansu Fati (13) also made the top 5. Fati was on fire until he broke his leg in February. We also now hold the outright record of most titles in the competitions history (28).
In other news, Patrice Evra has left my under 18's to take over at Crystal Palace and Everton re-hired Marco Silva.
After putting out Fulham (H), Barnsley (H) Tottenham (H) and West Brom in the semi-finals, we set up a very straight-forward win against Jesse Marsch's Liverpool. Greenwood, Haaland and Mejbri with the goals. We've now won the EFL Cup for 5 consecutive seasons and hold the outright record of most trophies in the competitions history (11).
We have a very favourable run and put out Bolton (A), Luton (A), Portsmouth (H), Brentford (H) and Sheffield Wednesday in the semi-finals before turning over Manuel Baum's Tottenham 3-0 at Wembley. We've now won the FA Cup 3 times in the last 4 seasons and hold the outright record of most trophies in the competitions history (16).
Topped the group with a perfect record, then proceeded to knock-out FC Porto, Roma and Napoli to set up a final against Marcelo Gallardo's Chelsea in Luzhniki. Chelsea took revenge on the 2008 final and won 5-4 on penalties, with Marcus Rashford missing from the spot for us.
This is a tournament I need to do better in, I've won 3 Champions League's (doubling United's total up to 6), but I've also lost 3 finals. Real Madrid currently lead with 13.
