It's fun watching entertaining football being played. The only thing that's annoying me is that I can't get Messi to play :/. Oh well, at least Ibrahimovic has turned into a god. Maybe when Ibra gets old, I'll move Messi to the striker position and get someone like Fabregas to take over for Messi as the Trequartista.

Ugh. Drew 0-0 with 19th-placed Numancia.

We had 22 shots to their 5. Hit the bar 4 times. However, missed the target 10 of those 22.

Playing Athletico Madrid in the second leg of the Spanish Cup semis, 3-1 at half time with Messi scoring after beating two players and burying a penalty, and Xavi also scored from a free kick. Second half now, Xavi's scored his second free kick of the game.

God, I love that guy.

Lol, Xavi's 3rd goal from a free kick in 2 matches. It's got to be his 6th or 7th of the season!

4-0 away win over Racing. Messi scored a wonderful individual effort and assisted the 3 other goals that were scored (Ibra x2, Bojan). I think I've got him working now :D

I feel we're not allowed to have 3-0 wins against top teams :(

3-0 at home to league leaders Newcastle with 10 mins to go and they score 2 goals.

3-2 is very flattering for them. They deserved to lose 6-0

But at least this means we're mathematically safe :D

Well that was FM blatantly punishing me for not playing it for a while. A loss to Wolves and three injured strikers in the first match played.

Well Ibara is out for three to four months while Anelka is out for four to five months :(

Otoo wasn't badly injured and Walcott is back in training.

Welcome to the forums. :thup:

Cheers. :D I'm probably going to leave if we get relegated. :( We're now 19th..

I'd start a new thread if you're sure you're going to stick with the save, but it's always good to give the occasional post here.

I think I'll start a thread lol ... I'm currently chelmsford city in my third season and sitting in 2nd place in the coca-cola league 2 after about 10 games. Pretty hard when your on a tight budget to attract quality players.

If your'e chairman status is 'Mansell Wallace will never leave the club of his own volition' does this mean he'll never leave and I can never get taken over because if that's the case I don't see chelmsford going very far tbh

One brief off-topic comment, any idea when the competition winner is announced? It's not been updated in the thread.

Lot of jobs just come around, fingers crossed I get one!

Barbosa rejected. Man City nicked a youth player from us! We have a crap youth system and no academy, and this guy only has pace, but it's a nice earning.

£5.75mil takes Botia to Reggina and surely sends us back to Adelante. :(

Another loss, this time at home to Deportivo, leaves us in the relegation zone.

I have ****ing had enough of this team.

Too many poor performances. Too many players not looking like they give a ****. Too many players who make the most idiotic mistakes and then look to do nothing to make up for it.

The board sell my best players and don't let me have the money to replace them. They let me offer high fees to **** players but refuse to let me release a defender for 250k who has averaged below 6.5. It's like they want us to go straight back down.

I've had enough. I quit. Time to find a club with more ambition.

:)

:) let's see where this goes.

Just got past the first knock out round in the Champion's League. I beat Inter 1-0 at the Camp Nou after a 0-0 draw at the San Siro. Not the most beautiful of victories, but I'll take it any day :)

I'd rather be sacked by an ambitious chairman than be let take a club back down without a fight by a crap one. :(

What the ****?

There's 1 game to go in the BBVA season and Luis Aragones, incharge of Atletico, retires. I apply and get offered the job. Massive dilemma seeing as I've had success with them before, and also I'm thinking my reputation is too high, so do I take it or leave it? :(
