Gosh. Superb stuff. Is it a series of great team performances, or are there some individuals who are really shining on the European stage?

Squad - European stats

It's been pretty good all round, but the midfield have excelled. Harris and Richardson are the stand out players in Europe so far.

Great results Dafuge! I'm betting your europe run will do wonders for the Coefficient rankings.

If you can get something from Milan at home and Rangers away then you should have a shot of holding on to the Europa League spot - not out of the question given your previous performances!

Halfway there!

Champions League group stage - Bourneview vs AC Milan

It started so well, but a red card and a load of injuries removed any tiny chance we had of getting a result from this match.

Group table - this is a fantastic position to be in, an AC Milan win puts us into the Europa League and an unlikley win at Anfield would mean we qualify from the group.

Your making this look very straight forward. Keep up the good work and good luck against Liverpool.

We've drawn Atlético Madrid in the first knockout round. Can the run continue?

This is becoming a bit of a joke now, we went to Anfield and matched them (thanks to the sending off). They may have been the better team, but we made so much more of our chances.

I'm guessing it's going a bit too well too soon for a long term game? :)

In any case,tremendous work dafuge! :thup:

You being a "one-tactic" kinda man,are the backroom staff pestering you about tactics?

Something is so wrong with this game. Even CL qualification is so unrealistic (even in 20 years), but group results left me speechless.

Amazing work, dafuge.

How it could happen? :rolleyes:

A bit of a dope ?:)

I hadn't thought of that! All that money that he "couldn't spend" sat in the bank...

It is a bit weird, I was expecting something like 20 seasons before I got anywhere near this sort of thing. It won't last though, the good players all want to leave for bigger clubs already. We can only really go backwards over the next few years, despite possibly turning pro.

The backroom staff pester me about match preparation (which is odd since they handle it) but not tactics.

It's not too easy, it's just pure football. When a manager has almost total control, and he has talent, you see what happens in Brian Clough's story. And in the same story, you see what happens when they aren't in control. Prolonged success only ccomes when there is only one boss. Such as Sir Alex Ferguson but irl there's almost never a single boss. Every single director wants different things and that chaos prevents the team from becaoming succesful. FM is about pure football, that's why it's so good

It's unrealistic the amount of control you get given right off the bat - certain managers do earn the right to dictate everything that goes on at a club after they've paid their dues like Ferguson, or have a proven track record - see Mourinho vs Valdano at Madrid.

However, adding in meddling directors of football etc would just add more frustrations and almost certainly make GD explode with self-righteous indignation, so probably best to keep it how it is.

Wouldn't be much of a game if it wasn't how it is.

Agreed. :thup:

Truly amazing stuff! Very well done on topping that Champions League group. You've certainly put Northern Ireland on the map now!

They're clearly trying to unsettle you,probably huddled together in some back room as we speak,giggling and conspiring. :(

Keep up the good work in N.Ireland!

As for the extra panels, you just need a higher resolution on your computer.

I have a feeling that this will be the story for a while. As a small semi professional club, there's not a lot I can do to stop my players moving to better clubs :(

I wish they would connect "chairman sells player over your dead body" with something like "and the money will be invested in facilities".

Selling your players and give you the money for transfers is just daft imho. :(
