  1. Just signed the following Arsneal legends as staff 😎 Loving it! Marc Overmars - dof Coaches Thierry Henry Robin van Persie Dennis Bergkamp Jensen Lehman u23 Freddie Lungberg u18 Unfortunately Kolo Toure, Koscielny's and Cesc Fabregas failed to get work permits because they didn't have a high enough coaching qualification
  2. I've played him as a dlp in cm and dm both good. I am currently playing him as a cb in a back 3 he is also really good there too. Thinking about training him to be a libero and see how he performs that role 😎
  3. I have just started my second season and I have a situation that I need advice with. Here is my team Gk. Leno RB. Trippier Lb. Tierney CB. Stones CB. White Cm. Rice Cm. Torreira/partey Lw. Aubameyang Am. Grealish Rw. Saka/pepe Cf. Haaland I signed haaland at the start of the summer window 2nd season. Part of his contract was a promise to sign a defender. It was locked in so couldnt get rid. On the same day he signed I signed Stones so thought that would do. Now I am coming to the end of the summer window at start of season 2 but his promise hasnt been fulfilled. I am happy with my squad and dont feel we need another defender but should I sign one anyway to keep haaland happy or risk upsetting him? I dont want him to want to leave after just signing. I have transfer kitty money to buy a defender we just dont need one really

  5. South Korea World Cup 2034 Review This years World Cup was hosted by us, I felt the fans were quietly optimistic that we could turn a few heads being on home soil. The FA wanted us to perform well and wanted a 3rd round appearance as a minimum. Lets see how we got on. Group Stage. Our group consisted of Sweden and Equador. We were ranked 12th in the world higher than both our opponents so I was confident we would qualify. Second Round (if applicable) Third Round (if applicable) Quarter Final (if applicable) Semi Final (if applicable) Final (if applicable) IT is now July and we have the Asian Cup coming up in Jan, I cannot wait. I hope we can win it first time but am concerned about Irans performance in the World Cup and they won the Asian Cup last time round. It will either be us or them who win it. I was offered the Spain, Turkey, Portugal and USA jobs after the World Cup I would have been tempted any other time but I need to get this Asian Cup out of they way.
  6. Yes I left after the Europa final. I havent played through the world cup not been on much. We came close most seasons but our form would never last. The teams above us were just too strong.
  7. Leicester City Season 2033-34 Review I think I said in my previous post, this season would be my last at Leicester City. Now I have reached the end of the season I still feel that way. This season was all about winning a cup after realising I just could not compete with the big 4 teams when it came head to head or spending power. LEAGUE Different season same old story. A fifth place finish and Europa Conference qualification for next season, or whatever that competition is? At one point we were second about halfway though the season and the board wanted to readjust our season goals I almost went for title challenge but decided to learn from my mistakes of previous seasons and not be too ambitious so I stuck with Europa League qualification. As you can see I am some way off from the top clubs. EFL Cup This was my main goal this season. I wanted this cup then I could leave for pastures new with at least one accomplishment. Could we do it? We had a pretty easy route to the semi final where we met fellow Premier league mid table opposition Everton. I fancied my chances! Semi Final Leg 1 Semi Final Leg 2 Final (if applicable) FA Cup Europa League An easy path in the early stages, it didnt get interesting until the Semi Finals. Our opponents? It was time for revenge, non other than Everton again Semi Final Final (if applicable) Best player A change this season from my usual star striker Sam Tol. This season he was slightly injury prone, but sill scoring 23 goals. it was close. Grant was signed on a free transfer asfter his AEK contract expired, now he is workth £60m and my top scorer and one of the top average rated. He started off being a bit of a super sub, but after covering Tols injuries and lack of form, Grant forced his way into the team and his goals were vital to our success. Whats next? Well I will definitely be resigning I have the World Cup to look forward to this summer with South Korea and we are the hosts. Hopefully we can take advantage of this and upset a few teams. I'll post my World Cup review soon Season Team Position Key Player Notes and Achievements 21/22 Supersport United 1st Rodney Ramagalela Won Telekom Knockout Cup 22/23 Supersport United 1st Oswin Appollis Won CAF Champions league, MTN 8 Cup, Knockout Cup 2023 Guangzhou Evergrande 2nd Elkeson Won Chinese FA Cup 2024 Guangzhou Evergrande 1st Anton Miranchuk Won Chinese FA Cup, Won Asian Champions League 2026/27 C.F.

  8. Leicester City Review 2032-33 After just missing out on the League last season. I was hopeful we could go one better after strengthening the squad further. We started off well up til halfway through the season but then star striker Tol got injured for 3 months and we struggled losing pretty much all of our away games. Nothing I tried could turn our fortunes around. We only just about hung onto 5th place, qualifying for the Europa League. 5th Place finish, about where the media predicted us to finish but after last season I was disappointed. Nothing doing in the cups, knocked out by 3 big teams whos squads I just cannot compete with Star Man Once again our superstar dutch forward was the performer of the season, even with him being out injured for 3 months he still managed 23 goals, he was closely followed by Jovanovic our young LB who won young player of the year Whats Next? This Leicester squad has some very good young players who could really become a force in the next few seasons.But I am not sure I have the time to stick around, I really need to start making progress on completing this challenge. I think my best hope for this season is to win a cup, for this I would need to avoid the big boys. I almost left during the summer after this season, /cruz Azul in Mexico was available but they could not afford the payoff to Leicester, just as well really. It is World Cup year and hopefully my South Korea side can take a few scalps and please the crowds with it being on home soil. Best I can hope for is plenty of available nations once its finished leaving some big clubs without a manager.

  9. Unlucky. Do you think you can win it next year? What's your finances like now? And why are you losing £14m a month, was it?
  10. Sounds like a very dominant season. Any plans to leave yet? Do you have your eye on any jobs?
  11. Leicester City Season Review 2031-32 We finished strongly last season but missed out on Europa League qualification on the last day. Our impressive form carried over to this season. I made a few signings to replace the aging outgoing stars they all hit the ground running and we shot to the top of the league. Transfers League We started off so well, we were blowing everyone away, we went on a 34 game unbeaten run at one point. I really thought that we would win the league in our first full season. We were top of the league for most of the season, but whether it was pressure or lack of experience, the wheels fell off and after a few losses and draws we should have won, the pressure was on against title rivals Chelsea and Man City both away, we have no chance of beating them. Their squads were so good compared to ours, we threw the title away with only 5 or 6 games to go. I was not too disappointed though as we had performed way better than I had thought we would. The squad is now young and over the next season or two will become even stronger. Player of the Season Sam Tol - We only signed him in January from Ajax, but he was rated highly by my scouts and this is the calibre of player we will need to take us to the next level. Last seasons star striker Ernie Brathewaite just could not reproduce his scoring heroics this season like he did last season. Sam was an instant success scoring goals for fun, with only half a season he finished our top scorer. Whats Next? I might give Leicester another season or two, I'll see how next season pans out. I am in negotiations to sign a star centre back and AMC hopefully they will take us to the next level. If I cannot win the league with Leicester hopefully I can win a cup, move on then come back to win the league with a bigger club. The Liverpool job has become available I have applied just to see what transfer kitty they have. I probably wont take it if I am offered the job. On the International side with South Korea, nothing of note has happened, we have the World Cup qualifying but we are the hosts so we will be there anyway, hopefully with the home crowd we can do well and maybe upset a few teams. On another note, we sold our star AMC, This is the most I have sold a player for on any FM by a long shot I deferred the transfer to the end of the season so I could still make use of him this season, my joy of having all that transfer money to spend did not last long when this popped up I bet Motherwell could not believe their luck! I hadnt noticed the 40% sell on clause in his contract which was of course arranged when he was signed before my time. At least I will get around £120 mil of it to spend. I do have the Scottish League active and the Motherwell Job is listed as insecure. I might keep my eye on that. I imagine it would be fun to play in scotland with that cash.

  12. Remember this 15 year old beast I signed in 2022, I wanted to keep signing him throughout my career and develop him. This is him now. Once I left Supersport I signed him for Guangzhou Evergrande, by the time the transfer completed and I could register him I had left so I didnt get chance to use him. After that he moved to PSG and now recently to Real Madrid. Maybe our paths will cross again sometime soon in the future.
  13. Season 2030/31 Review After the shambles that was my brief stint at Newell's Old Boys I finally landed a job in the English Premier League with Leicester City. I took over in January halfway though the season. Pre-season the media predicted a 6th place finish for Leicester but their aging squad just did not play to expectations and were 16th when I took over. I was surprised to be given the job after I have previous failed applications to much lesser teams in other leagues. It might have had something to do with the board asking to a mid table finish but I promised them Europa League qualification, which meant a 7th place finish. The pressure was on! In the Cups they wanted a semi final appearance in the FA Cup and in the Europa League. To upset my board and put even more pressure on my position I got knocked out of the FA Cup in the third round by Man City and I was later knocked out of the Europa League by Porto in the second round. As the season was drawing to a close, I kept getting news items that a loss in the next game would cost me my job. I had been in the position 3 or 4 months and my job was insecure, damn my ambitious promise for Europa League qualification was it going to bite me on my ass? TRANSFERS I had a £35 million transfer kitty, I sold a few of the dead wood players and brought in a couple of much needed youngsters to join the likes of aging, Tammy Abraham (33), James Maddison (34), Ndidi (34), Soyuncu (35) and Tielemans (34). My signing of January was without a doubt Rodrigo Sole, a world class Argentinian CM an absolute steal at £23 mil. LEAGUE LEAGUE TABLE TOP PLAYER Would have to be our top scorer. Ernie Braithwaite. I had 3 strikers with all similar attributes, Ernie was on my bench to begin with, my first choice striker just missed too many chances and after a few super sub performances, he earned his chance and never looked back and finished with 19 goals from 19 starts WHATS NEXT? The board did ask me for a meeting at the end of the season to explain how we had failed so miserably in not achieving our goals this season, I didnt have an option to say we went on a 17 game unbeaten run to miss out on Europa League qualification on the last day of the season by 2 points, but they did accept my explanation about our form, which didnt really make sense with what actually happened but they seemed happy with my choice so I kept my job and now I can begin to plan for next season. Also In January I was appointed South Korea Manager after they got knocked out the Asian Cup In Jan. No competitions of note coming up yet, qualification for the World Cup starts soon.

  14. Newell's Old Boys Season 2029-30 Review So our poor form from last season continued into this season. Even with my squad being strengthened the players would not perform. No matter what formation of what style we played. It must have been a mental issue with the squad. The players always seemed to be moaning about something. I had lost the support of the dressing room before the league had even started! It quickly became apparent I would not be able to turn this team around. The only reason I stayed was to see if I could pull off a miracle and win the Copa Libertadores. We managed to actually perform well in the Copa Lib reaching all the way to the semi final where we met Santos. In the first leg we lost 0-1 away then in the second leg this happened We came so close and to miss a penalty in the 82nd minute who knows what would have happened in the last 10 minutes. But it wasnt to be. I quickly resigned after the next league game where we were 2-0 up at half time and ended up losing 2-3. So I am looking for a new job. Not sure if it has just been my game but there have not been many 'big' jobs that have come available. I might wait for the next international tournament in 2030 and hope some decent jobs become available then
