  1. My hours are very high, mainly because I generally leave the game running when I'm working from home, here's my hours:- FM12 1201hrs FM13 1302hrs FM14 1292hrs FM15 1069hrs FM16 2024hrs FN17 862hrs High numbers but I think CM 01/02 would top all those hours above as my most played version.
  2. I signed Gaya for my Arsenal side and he was excellent and contributed to us winning the league in the first season.
  3. I don't really like to loan players to teams in the same league, even when they can't play against you. I tend to favour the Scottish Prem as a destination for my loan players as I like to try and stop the Celtic dominance up there.
  4. First season in the premiership with Hull and finished 6th, that's without signing any big players. Biggest signing was probably the free transfer of Jack Wilshere.
  5. I ended up losing in the play off final but I had a paper thin squad. Just finished my second season with Hull and won the Championship with 103 points. Wing-Backs are immense in this tactic.
  6. This is a great tactic (The control version). Its a possession based attacking formation, your strikers will get most of the goals, but the rest of the side do weigh in with the odd goal. I took over at Hull in October 2016 and they was languishing down in 18th and in my first 10 games I only managed to win 4 draw 1 and lose 5. I then switched to this tactic for January 2017 and it has propelled me from 20th up to 4th in 17 games, I have won 13 drew 1 and lost 3 (all by 1 goal), scoring 48 and conceding 16. With 5 games to go I am almost dead certs for promotion.
  7. Champman10 2021/22 Update Melbourne City / Slaven Belupo I resigned in December after getting bored in the Australian league, leaving the club in 4th and in with a good chance of winning the league. I got offered several international jobs, DR Congo, Georgia, Poland and the Croatia job, which is the one I took. I decided that I want to move back to Europe and applied for several jobs, I didn't get offered one until July 2022, in time for the new season in.....Croatia. I have taken over at Slaven Belupo a 2000/1 massive outsider in the 10 team Croatian league and that's where this update will finish.

  8. I had a similar problem with mine, I was top with about 5 games to go and it crashed, I had set auto save to yearly as I was playing a national game on another save! Had to do the season again and it didn't pan out as well (see above)
  9. Champman10 2020/21 Update Melbourne City Got to be a quick update this, it wasn't the best season as we didn't take any further steps in the challenge but here's hoping for next season.

  10. Congratulations Pug, winning the FA Cup with a League 2 side is something I've never seen! Great Achievement!
  11. Champfan10 2019/20 Update Melbourne City I finally got a club job after what seemed like an age out of management, but in actual fact it was only 7 months. My exploits with Nigeria definately helped me get this job at Melbourne City. It was off season when I took over in May 2019 and gave me plenty of time to prepare my team for the season ahead, so I bought in some signings the biggest being the marquee signing of Guiseppi Rossi, although he would only go onto play 1 game for the club before getting a 10 month cruciate injury and being released (due to the registration rule). In the previous season the team finished bottom of the leage but there's no relegation so this year we was aiming to uphold the clubs honour and the press didn't expect anything from us as we was predicted second bottom. We started slowly, getting knocked out of the Cup in the first round and winning only 3 of the first 10 games in the league as it looked to be a long season. I resigned as Nigeria manager as I decided I needed to focus just on this job at the minute, I also rejected an approach from Jamaica who wanted me back. I fiddled with my tactic to try to get us playing on the front foot and came up with this:- This tactic would help us lose only 3 of the final 19 games as we pushed up the table to a point where we even dreamed of a title win. In the end we'd finish 3rd but qualify for the Finals series but unfortunately we was eliminated by Perth Glory (who would win the series), but 3rd is enough for us to qualify for the Asian Champions League, although we will have to go through a playoff to enter the group stages next season, below is the competition summary.

  12. Here's hoping, I noticed offen struggled to get a club job and I'm in the same boat as it stands but if it means a few years in the international game only then so be it.
  13. Champman10 2018/19 International Update Jamaica (Rank 43rd) Schedule - Trophy After the world cup with Jamaica, which I consider a successful campaign, came the Caribbean Championships. We didn't enter until the 2nd round and was drawn in a group with Surinam, Dominican Republic and Antigua & Barbuda. We came through with 7 points after a surprisingly tough game against Surinam. So we was then drawn in the 3rd round in a group with Cuba, Barbados and defending champions Martinique, we once again come through with 7 points, this time being held by Martinique. This meant we would face off in the final against Curacao who had won their group in the 3rd round, we dispatched of them 3-0 and I picked up my first piece of silverware. I know it doesn't count as a trophy towards this challenge, but it was still nice to win my first FM16 trophy. Nigeria (Rank 32nd) Info - Offer After the Championships I applied for and got offered the Nigeria job, it was now December 2018 and the ACON started in January 2019 so I accepted. The hosts were Cameroon, who was in our group along with Morocco & Central African Republic. We finished second in the group after drawing with the hosts and beating the others. We got drew against Ivory Coast in the QF and it was 0-0 after 90 minutes, we went to extra time and manage to bag 2 goals with a late reply meaning we won 2-1. Tunisia was next up and we got an early goal to go 1 up but the struck back immediately, we then got a 2nd goal and kept the score at 2-1 to put us through to the final. In the final we played Egypt, we was up against it after going 1-0 by halftime and I had to lay into the players hoping that we could pull it back, this is how it finished. So I had my first trophy that counts, I'm now going to push on for a domestic managers job while sticking with Nigeria unless something else better comes along.

  14. Champfan10 Season 4 Jamaica - World Cup My first major tournament as a manager and as an international manager would be the World Cup in Russia 2018. The boards remit was to uphold the countries honour after the tough group of Portugal Brazil and Nigeria was drawn. First of all I had to pick my Jamaican squad, there was numerous English players who had Jamaican relatives but most turned down the chance to play in the world cup for a country they wasn't born in. The squad in comparison to the other nations in our group was weak, our main players being Dwight Gayle, Jason Puncheon and Andre Wisdom. We had a couple of friendlies before the tournament kicked off, winning 4-0 against Cuba and losing 2-1 against Ecuador, but these games showed me enough to sort my tactics and have hope that we wouldn't shame the nation. The first game was against Portugal, we lined up with a counter 4-1-4-1 as I was aware our main strength was our pace so I could afford to sit deep and hope we could hit them on the break. We played well and created the odd chance but more importantly we restricted Portugal and Ronaldo, managing to keep it to a 0-0 draw, this for Jamaica is a great result. Up next we had the world number two team Brazil, they came into this games after an unexpected 0-0 draw with Nigeria, this was after winning 9 games in a row. We dominated the game, we had 17 shots to there 5 and we had 6 on target to there 2, but the extra quality in the South American's squad showed as Gabriel Barbosa hit a double and we went down 2-0. This left the group with Portugal/Brazil on 4 points, then Nigeria and us on 1 point. So going in against Nigeria we needed to win to stand any chance to qualify, I altered the team instructions slightly so we'd play a bit higher up the pitch and it worked. Dwight Gayle and Jason Puncheon got the goals in the 2nd half and as we finished we eagerly checked the other result in the group and like in many world cups before the teams who knew they needed only a draw to qualify, played out a bore draw 0-0 and we went out in 3rd position. Brazil would go on to win the world cup and Portugal come 4th. In other news I am now without a club after being sacked by Kitchee for getting 7 points in the first 4 games meaning I couldn't hit the 12 point target I'd been set.
