  1. I have just finished my first season with Manchester United (I would have finished sooner but you know, I have to go and bloody teach). Good season, very happy with the football played and performances. Annoyed by (what I assume is a bug) the board being 'devastated' by my lack of high reputation player signings. Did not win a domestic Cup, knocked out early in the FA Cup by Cardiff and knocked out in the latter stages of the League Cup on penalties by Manchester City . European Champions! Very pleased with the double. Very pleased with the squad and signi
  2. I had almost finished my second season, but then had to format the old PC and as per usual forget to back up FM (and any other game files), so I've started again. Completely ****** it in real life, ha, but at least next season will be a 'real' challenege and i can pretend that the real season is not happening.
  3. No, my finances are not great. I have a decent amount to spend to try and stay up but in reality I will be looking to sign 5/6 players on as little as possible, for as little as possible (relative to their ability). I was fortunate to have a pair of decent young players come through in March, however, our youth setup has just been downgraded! :@
  4. Thinking about next season... There are a group of senior players out of contract, which should save £55,000 per week (Hutchinson, Foresteiri, and Odubajo). I need to attempt to sign Longstaff, Gomes, and Garner (they all have relative low fee to buy options in loans). I need to decide the fate of Palmer, and Iorfa (transfer interest in both). I need to find a first choice striker, none of my strikers (albeit two are young) scored anywhere near enough goals and were generally passengers for large parts. Strikers are really not working for me on this years edition. I need to s
  5. First season over! Championship Winner! ... err failed at the first hurdle with the League Cup, and beaten by Liverpool in the FA Cup quarter finals. Played 46, Won 29, Drawn 13, Lost 4. For 86, Against 26, Goal Difference 60. Points 100. Sheffield Wednesday had an excellent season; Most goals scored, Best Shooting Accuracy, Best Passing Accuracy (91%), Best Average Possession (65%), Most Clean Sheets, Least Conceded. My midfield trio of choice all finished with 94% passing accuracy too. Brescianini, Maldini, Gomes, Chong, Garner, Longstaff, Bannan, Pirola, Iorfa, D
  6. Played 15, won 10, drawn 5. For 31, against 11. One point ahead of an excellent Leeds side. Forestieri has had a couple of shockers (6.30 raitings, missing easy chances etc) and when (like I always do, issue a warning about the last game) I approach Fessi over this he always claims he had a good game and becomes unhappy (sulks) for a couple of games. Dropped him in favour of Rhodes / Colo as a sub for a few games, and Rhodes has scored twice and has played well on one occasion. Crazy. Anyway. Hoping Rhodes does just enough to convince someone to want to sign him, and I am going to try
  7. So, I am eleven games in... and it is time for an update. Gomes and Maldini have been doing well. Gomes - 11 games. 8 goals. 1 assists. 3 chances created. Maldini - 9 games. 2 goals. 5 assists. 3 chances created. Forestieri has been playing pretty well too; 10 games. 5 goals. 1 assist. 5 chances created. Championship has been kind to the Owls; played 11, won 7, drawn 4, lost none with 23 goals scored and 8 conceded. Fitness is a growing concern, a lot of the squad are young and they will become jaded and tired. I am trying to manage this better going forwards.
  8. Or Westwood, I mean, at least Rhodes can offer cover. I have Gasparini, Dawson, and Wildsmith who are ahead of Westwood... but he has a contract until 2021.
  9. I wonder if I can persuade the board to let me release Rhodes from his contract .
  10. Little update as I head into the first game of the season (Away at Reading). So I managed to move out; Fletcher, Winnall, Reach, Harris, Luongo, Pelupessy, Jones, Fox, Stobbs for a total of £23,500,000 and loaned out Nuhiu for half his weekly wage (no luck with Westwood or Rhodes). I picked up; Maldini, Colombo, De la Vibora, Gasparini, Brescianini, Lo Curto, Pirola, and Diallo for ~£14,500,000. I cancelled most of the loans too and managed to pick in a couple of season long loans including Longstaff, Garner, and Gomes. I refreshed my staff, and my coaching is very high across the
  11. I am a huge fan of him on the pitch in real life, however, on Football Manager he has been poor despite all my efforts (over three seperate saves). I usually let him go at the season, along with some others that are out of contract.
  12. As per usual since '97 I will probably pick a copy up. Sure, I have problems with releases, overall I enjoy Football Manager.
  13. Transfers! Out; Winnall > £16,000 per week in wages saved, and a fee of £1,000,000. Fletcher > £30,000 per week in wages saved, and a fee of £3,000,000. Harris > £10,000 per week in wages saved but the real reason was a fee of £5,000,000. Reach > £20,000 per week in wages saved, and a fee of £10,000,000. Luongo > £15,000 per week in wages saved, and a fee of £2,000,000. Pelupessy > £12,000 per week in wages saved, and a fee of £1,000,000. Fox > £8,000 per week in wages saved, and a fee of £1,500,000. Jones > £3,000 per week sav
