Signed a Portuguese assistant manager by the name of Ruca. I'm not particularly high up the chain and he's quite a good assistant manager - and he only wants £40 a week!

Can't really complain. :D

On my 2nd season as the Bolton Wanderers manager..... Just been knocked out of the first knock-out stages of the Europa League by Werder Bremen.

4 days after that, I was in the League Cup final vs. West Ham. Lost 1-0 because of an own-goal.

Gutted....

Got Reading away in the FA Cup next match..... I don't even want to think about being knocked out of 3 competitions within the space of 10 days.

Just moved into the 73,000 capacity Speake Stadium after winning the 19/20 title.

I'm annoyed that all my players seem to end up at Man City though... I'm like their feeder club

Trying to work out the bugs in my 4-3-1-2 formation with West Ham, and I definitely need some help

Green

Faubert/Behrami Tomkins Upson Ilunga

Noble Parker Collison

Diamanti

Ilan Cole

That's the line up I'm using, with the front three being 'trequartista' 'DLF' 'Advanced Forward'. Any tips?

I think I did something dumb. I needed a good right winger, one who would be rotation/backup, depending on how my 1st choice 19 year old plays. So I uh bought this kiddo for....oh you know...36M GBP....

I should badmouth my players more often, because he's just scored in only his third game, his first start...within 10 minutes...

Hah! I know that feeling. For example when I sell a player I notice all the bad attribute and figure it was a decent deal. Then I look at all the good ones and wonder if I just sold a diamond for a nickel.

On a similar note, I found a great player I really wanted. His price was 'only' 17.75m. Finally the club came back to me with a price. 137m...

I think not :D

The save I'm playing at the moment is one where I started unemployed. My first club was Panionios in Greece. First season we were predicted to finish 8th and finished 2nd, then earnt ourselves a Europa League place in the play-offs. After half of the next season I resigned and remained unemployed for the remainder of that season. Having struggled to find a new team I took over at recently relegated Middlesbrough and currently in January we're storming the Championship. The club had also ran into some financial difficulties before I arrived and were also taken over. The new Chairman seems keen to resolve the financial problems however and regularly adds an extra 600K or so to the balance. Having managed to get a few players to drop their wages slightly, I'm enjoying life at Boro. It's been an enjoyable save so far and I hope it continues that way :)

Ended up winning 7 straight, then also won 7 straight at the end and won the league. Had this tactic for 27 competitive games, won 21, lost 2 and drawn 4. Going pretty good.

I signed eight players in the summer break of my Bordeaux save. Three were youth prospects, but the overall breakdown was six defenders and two keepers. So I had better concede zero goals in the first six games. That included games against OM and Lyon. :cool:

Then a 4-0 loss to Bayern Munchen in the CL, but that was a fluke. I swear. :p

Crap :(

I was soooo close to beating Arsenal's PL record of 49 without a loss. We were up to 46. But then I fiddled with tactics a little cause teams kept parking buses in front of goal and I wanted to put more pressure on them. We lost 0-1 at home to Blackburn, having 19 shots to their 3.

Stuff hit walls.....

You got it though. I'm never going to get a run like that again. After I was finished being angry at my players for not scoring on some of the huge chances, I regretted changing my tactics around. Perhaps we could have made it a few more matches if I kept them.

One thing that is increasingly annoying me is the almost machine-like goal the first few minutes of a match. It is absurd how often this happens. And if you happen to concede a goal like this, you can bet the house on chasing the rest of the match, no matter how much more dangerous chances you create. It gets tedious to lose or draw matches when you create a lot more chances than the opposition on a regular basis.

It was always pretty quiet here before the merger, no one else here seems to feel the need to post quite that much.

As for the all-nighters, I believe they have a new home.

So, we are 2-0 up away at Villa when I make a triple substitution in the 79th minute. Villa then pull it back to 2-2 before I get a man sent off.

Then, in the 90th minute, this happens:

Free kick is taken from the edge of the box.

Axier spots the ball coming, unmarked with his back to goal.

He leaps and connects with an overhead kick.

He beats the keeper.

He wins the match in the 90th minute and completes a hattrick

First time I've seen one of those, and what a way to do it :cool:
