  6. NOTTINGHAM FOREST - End of season review - 2014/2015! ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE 5th: P38 W21 L7 D10 PTS70 CARLING CUP Winners (Vs Manchester City 2-1) FA CUP Winners (vs Everton 2-0) EUROPA LEAGUE Winners (vs Stuttgart 2-1 e/t) Fans happy Description of the game TREBBLLEEE! _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ YOUTH INTAKE AND UPDATE ON CURRENT YOUTH PRODUCTS! Recent youth news: BOARD DECIDE TO UPDATE RECRUITMENT NETWORK, ALLOWING BETTER PLAYERS TO COME THROUGH THE ACADEMIES. RECENT YOUTH INTAKE - GOOD FOR FOREST'S STANDARDS. WHAT HAVE THE YOUTH MEMBERS BEEN UP TO?! GARY SPENCER - Probably one of the best youth intakes I've had on FM11, potential to be a leading star in the premier league and I hope I can nurture him well. PARANA - You all may remember me buying him at 18 in 2011, he's improved so much at a player that he's now a regular in the team. He is improving each season and he'll be bossing the mid-field for a long time, when I bought him he had 11 appearances, then the next season 33 and now he hit 37 in the EPL, scoring 1 and holding 7 assists to his name. JOHN LEARY - I probably did not tell you about this guy, well I bought him from Norwhich from 1.2 million and I've been loaning him out to Chesterfield in which he scored 11 goals in 14 appearances for them and before that he led the under 18s group with 24 goals in the season. I've loaned him out to Plymouth for the full-season to get him some 1st team experience, plays extremely well for England u21S. GREGG HEDLEY - I bought Hedley when he was 16 from MK Dons, my real life team who had a tycoon take over are now in the premier league... lucky them. Anyway, I bought him for 1.6 million and he's been mostly in the u18s due to his age but I loaned him out to Charlton for half the season, he played 15-16 games and held up an average rating of 7.02. Very good for his age, has 6 youth caps to his name and he is growing on me. FUNES - Argentine, bought him quite cheap considering how bloody good he is. Was a wonderkid but no longer holds that description, played out the whole season very well and has attracted the likes of Man City, Napoli, Barcelona and Real Madrid to his arms. All offers rejected, I need the guy, he also played well in Copa America, playing every game for Argentina. RODRIGO - Only recently bought this guy from Botafogo or fago for 2.8 million, he's hardly played but somehow attracting Barcelona and big names like that. Don't know how but I'll probably get around to playing him some more the up-coming season. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Who won what awards? FANS PLAYER OF THE YEAR - For the 3rd year in succession, Fred wins the fans player of the year. Duely noted he has been fantastic asset and I really hope that he is here if/when we win the EPL. Nottingham Forest 2014/2015 team of the year. ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE TEAM OF THE YEAR. - This one is kind of funny, it's either made up of Man City or Nottingham Forest with the exception of Gareth Bale. ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE MANAGER OF THE YEAR. - GOES TO ME! First time I've won a manager of the year so far in this career, I've came close but this year I grabbed it. Yipee. ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE TOP SCORER - Fred hit another 38 goals in the net, very closely followed by 37 from Arsenal's Chamakh which was surprising. ENGLISH FOOTBALLER OF THE YEAR - Well done to Fred AGAIN. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Financial state of the club! SHAREHOLDER DIVIDENTS - Wish I was one of them right now. NEW SPONSORSHIP - More money for the club, win-win. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ My review of the past season. The past season was amazing, our style of football changed for the better and instead of varying between these failing 4-1-2-1-2 methods I finally settled with the English 4-4-2 method, changing it in a way to suit my own style of play and to allow my players to work in their best ways, this is one of the reasons why I did well in the 2nd half of the season. The first half was slow, our position was pretty dire at the start which cost us a place in the top four which we could've achieved if we didn't draw our last 3 games. European Cup, Carling Cup and FA Cup - I doubt I'll be able to defend them all next year, it'll be hard but I'll try. It was good to win them all in the first place and I'll especially look back at my 3-2, 3-2 wins at the City Ground and Santiago Bernabeu against Real Madrid. Though we did have a scare against Stuttgart which left me pulling out my hair and wondering why Fred suddenly decided to stop scoring. However, we won it. Just lucky though, I was about to do major subs to bring on some penalty shooters. Now I've got several transfers in mind, Fabian Delph being one and a barrage of new youngsters forming my new elite squad. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Review of my pre-season goals. - Reach the quarter final of the FA CUP - After years of failing in the FA Cup, it would be good to actually get somewhere with it this year. I'm hopeful this will happen this year, maybe we'll get further but I hope we can get some success inside it. SUCCESSFUL - We reached the final, thanking the Lord that at the time Chelsea were under-achieving loads, beautiful end though. - Get a 5th place position in the EPL - Pet peeve of mine is that we keep struggling to get into the Europa League, put the fact that we've been lucky for the past three years having got into the Europa league position within the last 2 games and the last two winning the league cup I'd like to go for a safe and stable position which will lead me onto a UEFA spot the next year. SUCCESSFUL - Thought we wasn't going to make it but luckily a few fixtures went our way and we ended up 5th, disappointed though knowing that we could've got into a UEFA champions league spot. - Reach Semi-finals of Europa League - We need to start showing that we're a big gun in Europe, with it we'll attract bigger sponsors, more money and better players. We need to get somewhere in this years Europa league, hence this goal. SUCCESSFUL - Went on step forward and won it, moved our co-officency from 55th to 25th and ranked me 2nd for that whole year out of the clubs. Really good season, it will be hard topping it. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ AND some fun things! TYCOON TARGETS FULHAM?! Tycoon's 1st move. Tycoon's 2nd move. Tycoon's 3rd move - the deal is done. JPAYNE LIKES RACING?! I'm no fan of Racing! Stupid F1 I HATE IT!
  7. Nearly banged out the 2015 league with Notts Forest! Managed to get us up to 6th in the EPL so far, won the Carling cup, semis of the Europa league and final of the FA Cup. Lucky me.
  8. Right, due to my current RL **** I'll just throw you a very short summary of what the season has been like so far. 1. I'm 7th in the league, having hit the 30 played mark. 2. Fred is leading the top scorers table in EPL, League cup, FA Cup and Europa League. 3. Semi-finals of FA Cup. 4. Won the league cup. 5. I'm now managing Uruguay, won every game so far and I've found a wonderkid in the under 20s who has not been tainted so I'll be lodging an offer for him. 6. Playing really well this season, put the position aside our football has been great. 7. I WILL BE GIVING AN END OF SEASON UPDATE SO STAY TUNED! AND IF YOU WANT COMMENT ON SOME TIPS/HOW YOU THINK I'M DOING
  9. Nottingham Forest - Pre-season review - 2014/2015. TRANSFERS Transfer summary (ones blacked-out are January transfers, done this ss a bit late) Main Transfers Funes - Told you all about this little gem a year ago and I finally got him, turns out he was actually a wonderkid and has been attracting the attention of Man City, Arsenal and the big guns since he hit his 15th appearance. He's a class defender and one of my favourite scout finds I've had. Thank God for Brazil. Diego Tardelli - Another late screenshot but what the heck, this guy is my biggest buy since Fred and as another Brazilian the chemistry in my strike force is very good and both him and Fred make a lovely couple up top, quality signing. BOARD EXPECTATIONS Didn't get a screenshot but it was like £715,000 wage and 30 million transfer which I split up into instalments like normal for a top-half finish. ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE - Media prediction: 9th - Winning the EPL odds: Better then last season by miles, 200-1 = awesome. FA CUP - 5th Round CARLING CUP - 4th Round EUROPA LEAGUE - Phase 1 of group stage ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ My goals for the season ahead. - Reach the quarter final of the FA CUP - After years of failing in the FA Cup, it would be good to actually get somewhere with it this year. I'm hopeful this will happen this year, maybe we'll get further but I hope we can get some success inside it. - Get a 5th place position in the EPL - Pet peeve of mine is that we keep struggling to get into the Europa League, put the fact that we've been lucky for the past three years having got into the Europa league position within the last 2 games and the last two winning the league cup I'd like to go for a safe and stable position which will lead me onto a UEFA spot the next year. - Reach Semi-finals of Europa League - We need to start showing that we're a big gun in Europe, with it we'll attract bigger sponsors, more money and better players.

  10. Next few reviews will be up later, though a bit sketchy because I've been playing while the forums been down.
  11. I have to say, I'm addicted to buying Brazillian players my scouts find. I've bought another couple of them in this window including a very VERY good one.
  12. Nottingham Forest - End of Season review - 2013/2014. English Premier Divison: 7th, automatic Europa League spot. Carling Cup: 4th Round vs Stoke. FA Cup: 5th Rnd vs Everton. Europa League:2nd Knockout round vs Dortmund. Youth Intake: Forgot to take a screenshot of it, but it was poor. Got a decent player but he isn't good enough to brake into the squad any day. Financial State: New sponsor... AGAIN. STADIUM EXPANSION! 30000 SEATS. Youth facilites upgraded for the 3rd year in a row. KEY PLAYERS IN THIS SEASON'S CAMPAIGN. Fred - God I only hope this guy sticks around long enough to see us lift the English Premier league, he was the member of the team that kept Forest up in our spot this season. He broke the scoring record for the Premier League with 38 goals in 38 appearances in the league, NO injures whatsoever and became the first Brazillian top scorer in the history of the English Premier Division. Chris Cohen - I really think I shall come to regret putting his departure out for a £7,000,000 fee however when you consider he was bought for 200k you have to think about what is best for a club who's money is going to start drying out as we pay back these monthy installments we owe from previous seasons. Held up his awesome assist record and done well in the season. Fan's player of the year award: Fred for the 2nd year running. Would put up my team of the year but I have some awful bug which means it doesn't show up, only shows up every 2 years :S. Records broken? Andrew Cole 93/94 scored 34 goals in the season. Wally Ardron 49/50 scored 36 goals in the season. Fred 2013/2014 scored 38 goals in the season. Fred blitz record. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ My view on the season. The season was one of my best and exciting seasons on Football Manager. Though I did not achieve certain goals, I did re-build pride in Nottingham Forest's name in that we are now attacking the top 6 position and we're going to build on last year and go for a higher EPL spot. The EPL season overall was a very consistent one for myself, I took control on our defence and our attack. We ended up coming 3rd in the overall squad goals with 72 goals and 42 goals against us. As well as this we destroyed last season's points by nearly 20 and we improved a mile. We have another season in the Europa League thanks to our great performance and hopefully we can regain our league cup back! ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Review of my pre-season goals! - Go six games without losing in the English PL - This is a personal objective that I hope to succeed with my new fresh players and hopefully good runs of form, this could happen at any time in the season so good luck to me. Successful. Didn't think I was going to do it after I failed on two occasions after getting to 5 on both, but I ended up doing it with the help of draws and my important wins. Was vital in gaining my Europa League spot. Hold down a firm mid-table spot - I know my expectation is to avoid relegation but that is just a safety measure so I don't get sacked if I do bad, instead I hope to build on my progression last season and go for a 11th + position in the English PL. Successful. Got up to 7th in the league with a fair amount of ease into it but I don't want to get complacent and I expect better next season. - Get into the 2nd KO phase of the Europa league - Building on my progression last year I think it is a visible challenge that if we commit to and work towards we can do well, we went out last season in the 1st KO round but I don't feel as bad because the team I got by went onto win the trophy. Successful. Got through with ease at Spartak Moscow but come unlucky against Dortmund and went out on away goal ruling. - Get to the 6th round of the FA Cup - I have been awful in the FA Cup so far, so to get to the 6th round would be very good. Failure. Yet another poor season in the FA Cup, we had a nasty amount of good opponents and were soundly beaten.
  13. Nottingham Forest - Winter Review - 2013/2014. PROGRESSION IN THE ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE. My thoughts on the season so far. Ever since the new year was brought about we have had a weird season where we have dropped easy points but upheld points I'm surprised we had gained. We started off by losing unrespectively to Manchester Utd, a game which I was not proud of but we brought it back with 2 games in which Fred scored a impressive 7 goals in 2 games, 4 in 1 and 3 in the other. We should have easily put Birmingham to bed but it was not to be done, hitting the woodwork 4 times overall and having 22 shots on goal, 11 off-target and 11 on-target and somehow we managed to hit a 0-0 stalemate followed by 2-2 draw in which we led 2-0, a 1-1 draw with Arsenal and a 1-1 draw with Newcastle which brought up my 6 games WITHOUT defeat. We done well in the Europa league as well, we won 6-2 on aggregate against Spartak Moscow, 3-0 and 3-2 and we now face Dortmund in the next round, we lost out in the FA Cup to Everton 3-1 but I won't say which round yet.
