[FM16] The slow slog through Europe!

Recommended Posts

Some bad news guys, my computer has bit the dust for now it seems. I had someone over to look at it and the motherboard is gone or something like that, either way I have to send it back and it's basically gonna be a long while until I play this save, or even if I ever play the save again.

That's a shame things seemed to be turning around, hope you get it back in time for fm17

Do you back the save file up so you can keep it until you can continue? I've been meaning to do that for a while but haven't really gotten a round to it. Probably a good idea for people to do.

Thanks guys, unfortunately I have no save backups so I'm guessing it will be gone when I get my PC back although I've not sent it back to the company yet and probably won't get chance too until Wednesday but I'm hoping that I'll get it back in time for FM17. For the time being I'm playing FM10 on my old PC so probably nothing career-worthy!

Just read through this save, great career and was enjoying reading it.

Gutted that you may have lost it. Backing up is so important but we don't realize it until its too late :(

Well this wasn't the warmest of welcome backs...A win away to Nice relieves a little bit of pressure away from me so hopefully we can kick on now.

Form didn't pick up, one win against struggling Chamois Niortais is enough to see us climb a place to 13th.

That's a bit better, we're still in 13th and the majority of teams around us are in good form but it sees us just 8 points away from 3rd, not that we can get that high but it's just nice seeing that the league (or the majority of it) is close at almost the half-way point.

Still completely inconsistent and still in 13th, it's looking less and less likely that we're going to finish in 8th but as long as I still have a job by the end of the season then it will be a win.

2 Cup games, the first was annoying. We were away to 5th tier USL Dunkerque and out-shot them 38-2 along with our 16 shots on target and yet we didn't find the net until the 108th minute...in the league we got out best result of the season thrashing Saint-Etienne 5-2 and making us the 'best of the rest' in the league.

The youth candidates also came in with a potential first choice keeper being the best this season.

Nice turnaround! Hopefully we'll see you venture into Europe again soon. Has there been any secret behind your success? As in a tactical change?

Thanks oriole :) And yes we've gone back to the old 4-3-1-2 which has worked a treat with other clubs.

The first signs of a brief slip-up, we lose out against Caen in the Semi-Final meaning the final will be Caen vs PSG who beat 3rd tier side US Creteil-Lusitanos 3-2 in their match.

Pretty remarkable turnaround, I wasn't expecting that when scrolling down. From 13rd midseason to 3rd?? :eek:

That was way too close for comfort, in the end we have PSG to thank for us being in the Europa League, them beating Caen on penalties in the French Cup sees us enter the Europa League Third Qualifying Round next season!

Very happy with that pre-season, good results to lead us in to the Europa League and we're predicted to finish 7th in the league which we should be able to manage. Mentioning the Europa League we face Bulgarian side Partizan Cherven Byrag. Yea, me either. In real life they play in the Bulgarian 3rd tier and in-game they finished 8th in the Bulgarian top division and they still play in a 700 capacity stadium.

Easy :D Breezed past both Bulgarians' Partizan Cherven Byrag and Danish side Odense to qualify for the Europa League Group Stage and a solid enough start in the league as well as we're 6th after 3 games.

Carrying on with good form, up to joint 3rd in the league and a narrow win over Olympiakos means we're off to a bright start in both the league and Europa League.

4 home games and 4 home wins! Amazingly we even beat the champions Monaco :D and after 10 games we're sitting nicely in 3rd place and joint top of the Europa League group as well.

Again a very good month but I'm disappointed to have dropped points against Troyes and Angers, we're also through to the knockout stages of the Europa League with a game to spare and I've signed a new contract up until 2039.

Some big scores and very big results as we were away from home for the majority of the month, and we actually performed better away from home. We're in 2nd at the half-way point which is much better than I thought we'd be at this stage and our Europa League 1st Knockout Stage has been drawn:

Yup, we don't have much of a chance here.

Another great month sees us through to the Final of the Coupe de la Ligue against Monaco and through to the 11th round of the Coupe de France where we'll face Nantes, in the league we're still in 3rd although a win should see us in 2nd.

Transfers In:

2d459f47aca8c216fd258a4963ad3cea.png

Lars Damgaard - Acacio Calixto - Domagoj Vidosic - Patric Beyer

Patric is undoubtedly the star after he was released by Hoffenheim in the Summer!

Transfers Out:

d6a8ce681bac420225c0206998e30b21.png

Getting rid of some players who were barely playing and losing 30 year old Rafal for £7.25m after he was brought in on a free from Sivaspor 18 months ago. Tidy. We've also cut close to £100k p/w off of our wage bill.

Well we're out of Europe and out of the French Cup in a bad few games but hopefully we can recover once we get a couple of players back form injury.

Thinking about signing this Mitsuki Sato? Would be interesting...

Also, good to see two Israeli teams in the Europa groups. Are coefficients more flexible with all the loaded leagues? How's Israel's?

I would've thought about it if he wasn't 30 years old.

Israel's nation coefficients are that they're ranked 28th between Austria and Bosnia & Herzegovina, in club coefficients they're ranked 22nd between Serbia & Poland and the top division in Israel is ranked 23rd in Europe between Serbia's top division and the Sky Bet Championship. I'd say things are more flexible, especially in European competition but the top 5 leagues are the same top 5 as at the start.

More dropped points against an average team but we've somehow managed to do the double over PSG who have terrible form right now and it sees us in 2nd with 8 games to go.

My first piece of silverware at Lille is the Coupe de la Ligue :D It was a great win over AS Monaco, in the league we had a close to perfect month and with just 4 games to go we are just one point behind Monaco.

Monaco's title run-in:

c2c3087476b3151f68ca54c22496bd64.png

20th - away

6th - home

10th - away

17th - home

 

Our run-in:

6c2ae9bef822146d9e36f09909186b84.png

5th - away

20th - home

6th - away

10th - home

On paper we have the harder challenge.

The team knew what was up for grabs and they played their hearts out for 3 of the 4 games and just one more goal would have seen us hit triple figures, now we can look forward to next season where we'll be in the Champions League and hopefully can strengthen our defence! Also a little side note from earlier on this page with something I noticed. We had our feeder team DSV Leoben in our Europa League group which in itself is no big deal, the big deal is that they actually play in Fussball Regionalliga-Ost which is the 3rd tier of Austrian football! Turns out they won the Austrian Cup Final with a 3-0 win over Wacker Innsbruck!
