  1. Ah, I see this is what I get for coming back to FM after some time off! Thanks!
  2. I've checked various well known players who should have favoured personnel and the information isn't there..
  3. I've found for managers, favoured personnel/clubs is clearly listed under Overview -> Information but for players this information is missing? Unless I'm not looking somewhere obvious..
  4. Istanbul isn't the capital of Turkey . However there are a lot of teams in Ankara, not sure how many are playable but Genclerbirligi and Ankaragucu are the most well known.
  5. I had a really lucky game as United against Chelsea, we were being completely dominated for 60 minutes, Costa, Willian, Hojbjerg, Hazard and Oscar were having shots at will and we looked unable to cope, perhaps realistically De Gea was single-handedly keeping us in the game at this point. Anyway at that point, things took a turn for the worse when Ander Herrera was forced off with injury (my 3rd choice AM behind an injured Mata and unfit Januzaj) so I had to bring on Gabi in a position he really wasn't comfortable playing... in theory anyway. Just a minute later, he made a great tackle while Chelsea were pushed up and put Leo through on goal (I like signing At. Madrid players ). He was foiled but it was an omen for what was to come. Then in one of our rare attacks, the ball fell to Gabi on the edge of the box and having not scored for us in almost 2 years since signing slammed the ball into the top corner. Chelsea continued to pressure us, De Gea continued to stop them every single time, then another break, ball played across the middle and there is Gabi once again to score his second! Schurrle scored one hell of a goal in the 89th minute to pull it back to 2-1 but it didn't matter as we took home the three points! I think Chelsea had 19 shots on target at the end of the game...
  6. James Chester IRL just signed for West Brom from Hull for £8m, teams getting relegated are under less pressure to sell than they used to be.
  7. A Turkish guy called Dean Florence? :S
  8. I signed Acapandie for Astra on my save, is he doing well for you?
  9. Well, I guess that means my final score is at least 2!!
  10. Me too, but we'll have to wait and see, I've got a few important exams coming up and I'm going to focus on those, I'll be back next week for those who are following this.
  11. We are getting better results but we aren't half the team we were last year.

Erics corner is headed in by Frăsinescu. 45 - Vădrariu makes a great run into the box but curls it wide. 45+1 - Half time A poor half, we need to start playing here or this could be embarrassing. 47 - Eric finds Munteanu in the box but he is well denied by Kello. 47 - Mihalache heads out a cross as far as Munteanu who volleys it well wide. 49 - GOAL! Astra are level, a great counter sees Bournal play in Curelea who touches it round the keeper before finishing. 59 - Eric to Negru who goes for it and Kello again turns it round. 60 - Erics corner finds Sburlea wide open and he hits the bar, how are the scores level? 61 - Sburlea is replaced by Dănciulescu. 74 - Mihalache is upended by Petre, yellow. 76 - Some mazy dribbling by Enache and his cross finds Curelea who hits the bar, what a chance. 86 - Petres cross finds Munteanu, who hits the bar. 89 - GOAL! A cruel, cruel goal for Astra, Ferfeleas corner comes back to him and his ball across the middle is wonderfully placed by Vădrariu to surely win it for Astra. 90 - Cojocnean and Astra old boy Budescu make their debuts in for Munteanu and Petre. 90+2 - Full time To be honest, we were awful today and how we won this match, I will never know, we'll take it though.

Finally, something happens in this game, a great burst of pace by Bournal down the right and his cross is finished off by Maranhao. 45+1 - Half time Great timing for the goal and we now have something to hold onto and I hope we can. 51 - GOAL! Maranhao swings in a free-kick and Curelea makes an incredible header into the far corner, great finish. 61 - Stana is booked for bringing down Curelea. 66 - GOAL! Achim plays it through for Monroy who brings Ceahlăul back in this game. 67 - Achim is now replaced by Lukanovic. 80 - Tembo is replaced by Marcu. 85 - Miron comes out of goal to clear it, it falls to Bournal on the half way line who goes for it but hits it wide. 86 - Nowosielski and Yahaya are now on, replacing Acapandié and Ferfelea. 90+1 - The ball falls to Tolimir from distance but his shot is straight at Kello. 90+2 - Full time We had to hang in there in the end but I'm pleased that the team has another 3 points. However, news of Bărboianu breaking his arm and being out for 2 months is not good at all.

Mureş for £75K. Andrei Mureşan also leaves the club, joining Turnu Severin for £90K.

A good away win to Sligo Rovers was how it started, followed by a good draw with Petrolul which we were unlucky to win in the end. We sealed our victory against Sligo with a 2-1 win to enter the play-off. We then played poorly in a boring game with Braşov before being dismantled by Cluj. We recovered well from a 2-0 deficit to get a 2-2 draw in Kiev against Dynamo, giving us hope of reaching the groups. We followed that up by giving our own lead away, allowing bottom side Săgeata N. to claim 3 points against us. An awful result and Kiev scoring after about 20 seconds into our home leg didn't help at all, we lost 3-1 and dropped out of the Europa League. We ended the month with our first league win since the opening day, a convincing 3-0 win over Argeş. Hopefully, without the Europa League we can start recovering our league position.
