Portsmouth - Premier League - 2038/39

The trophies were coming in at a rate, but my challenge was to start rebuilding the squad to keep things going in the future.

League Table - an unbeaten season, our first in four years.

Community Shield - this was a close one.

UEFA Super Cup - another tightly contested match.

FIFA Club World Cup - this one was a bit easier.

EFL Cup - we scraped through our first match, but went on to lift the cup.

FA Cup - I made a major error in not replacing the centre back who was sent off. We got beaten by a League Two team!

UEFA Champions League - so close to a perfect season.

Squad - the average age is creeping up as a number of players are the wrong side of 30.

Transfers - I felt a bit bad selling off two youth products, but Ross was ruined by injuries.

Finances - a loss, but nothing to worry about.

Key Player Profiles:

Danny Mende - top scorer, but suffered a bad injury.

Teddy Renouf - had an amazing time filling in for Mende.

Nestoras Ktistopoulos - still at the top of his game at 34.

Leo Braun - he's become my first choice AMC.

Yû Yokoyama - a promising looking Japanese defender.

Great career so far, but you're starting to make it look easy ;)

I honestly think there is a point in this game when it does get too easy. Once all the real players have gone, it is far too easy to dominate as a big club as the AI are terrible at squad building.

It's not something I've experienced on FM17, but then I haven't stayed at one team more than a couple of seasons, three at the most. I guess you'd need to put in a few more years to see that happen?

Absolutely, if you keep moving then the challenge remains fresh. It's when you settle at a club for the long term that things get a bit easy.

Portsmouth - Premier League - 2039/40

We have been dominating recently, but my squad rotation has cost us in the domestic cups. Could we do the clean sweep this season?

League Table - unbeaten, although we drew quite a few.

Community Shield - a great win to kick off the season.

UEFA Super Cup - we weren't at our best as we needed penalties to win.

FIFA Club World Cup - we made easy work of the Mexicans.

EFL Cup - we won every match.

FA Cup - another perfect record.

UEFA Champions League - not quite perfect, and the final was pure drama.

Squad - there's not a huge amount I can do here, but next season might be more interesting as the contacts expire.

Transfers - I finally gave in to PSG, and replaced him with someone better.

Finances - a profit.

Key Player Profiles:

Danny Mende - an incredible scoring record.

Teddy Renouf - the youngster looks like a real talent.

Christian Nwankwo - expensive, but not considering the £125m sale.

Nestoras Ktistopoulos - next season will probably be his last.

Mario Prce - another legend who may leave.

This was our first unbeaten season, so it's going to be hard to match that. The bigger challenge will be replacing the older players at the club.

Portsmouth - Premier League - 2040/41

We have hit our stride now as the trophies are rolling in.

League Table - we lost a few, but gained more points than last season.

Community Shield - we smashed Chelsea, with an ex player grabbing the consolation goal.

UEFA Super Cup - an easy win, although the red card seemed to tighten things up.

FIFA Club World Cup - I've no idea why this was played on Boxing Day.

EFL Cup - the red card made the final interesting.

FA Cup - things were close until our late goals.

UEFA Champions League - this was a lot closer than expected.

Squad - the squad is huge as I signed a few new players in January, players must be sold.

Transfers - I was unusually busy in the transfer market.

Finances - a loss.

Key Player Profiles:

Danny Mende - incredible again.

Kenneth Sabbe - had a blinder as a backup striker.

Nestoras Ktistopoulos - this was supposed to be his last season at the club, but I couldn't let him go after this.

Dion Lis - this legend's time is up.

Christian Nwankwo - cashing in with PSG was one of the best moves I've made.

Portsmouth - Premier League - 2041/42

We have been destroying everything in our path, but a number of key players are getting older so the squad needs rebuilding.

League Table - not quite unbeaten, but we got to see Southampton relegated on the last day.

Community Shield - a goal fest to kick of the season.

UEFA Super Cup - another high scoring friendly match.

FIFA Club World Cup - it was great to face some unusual opposition in this.

EFL Cup - we had to hold on in the semi final, but made simple work of the final.

FA Cup - amazingly Stoke gave us our toughest test.

UEFA Champions League - the final was a thriller as we came from behind late on only to concede an equaliser. We turned on the class in extra time.

Squad - the squad needs trimming before next season.

Transfers - I panicked and spent £104m on a right back!

Finances - a decent profit considering the transfers.

Key Player Profiles:

Danny Mende - amazing as always.

Teddy Renouf - the brilliant second striker.

Nestoras Ktistopoulos - he's finally decided to retire, which is great.

Tomas Masek - the £104m man.

Kevin Dau - this defender will be hard to replace.

Next Season:

Three clean sweeps in a row, so there's not a lot we can really do to improve on that. Apart from maybe four.

Maybe set yourself a challenge within Pompey. I've done something similar before, like selling all non English players and only allowing yourself to buy English players? It's tough, give the AI a chance to 'catch up'?

I've tried things like that before, like going youth only but I find them really frustrating. I can't stand it when I can't find good players as it is!

It was a tough decision, luckily Nwankwo prefers #14 anyway which made it a bit easier.

I'm not really sure how long it was, probably around 15-18 years.

Portsmouth - Premier League - 2042/43

The trophies are coming thick and fast, and with the squad in great shape this should continue for some time.

League Table - a pretty standard season.

Community Shield - we needed penalties to win the season opener.

UEFA Super Cup - this win was a bit more comfortable.

FIFA Club World Cup - São Paulo pushed us all the way as we hung on for the win.

EFL Cup - a narrow win against the only other team to win this competition in the last ten years.

FA Cup - we made easy work of the Championship opposition.

UEFA Champions League - eight in a row now.

Squad - the squad is in superb shape, they should be good for the next few years.

Transfers - I cashed in on another DM in favour of a talented youngster.

Finances - a decent profit.

Key Player Profiles:

Teddy Renouf - top scorer, as a supporting striker too.

Danny Mende - not as his best this season, but still brilliant.

Kenneth Sabbe - our most valuable player, but not quite a first choice.

Cristián Nunez - the young defender had an impressive season.

James Chukwu - the new signing had a solid but unspectacular season. I'm hoping he'll play as a DM.

Portsmouth - Premier League - 2043/44

Four clean sweeps in a row, could we make it five?

League Table - a loss to West Ham in the first half ended our hopes of an unbeaten season.

Community Shield - we just about edged it.

UEFA Super Cup - this was a bit easier.

FIFA Club World Cup - we made easy work of the unlikely opponents.

EFL Cup - we were on top form throughout the competition.

FA Cup - we scraped through with penalties in the quarter finals, but hit form at Wembley.

UEFA Champions League - we lost a lot of games 1-0, but came through when it mattered.

Squad - it's not easy to improve on this.

Transfers - I brought in an experienced DM.

Finances - a bit of a loss.

Key Player Profiles:

Danny Mende - top scorer once again.

Teddy Renouf - the superb second striker.

Kenneth Sabbe - making a good case to be the main striker.

Róbson Almeida - the new signing.

James Chukwu - looking like a great prospect.

What do your GKs look like - both from the youth setup, aren't they?

Jamie Barr

Alex Williams

They are both from the youth academy, this has been a position I've always struggled to find strength in.

Well, looks like it's set for the next 15-odd years now :D

5 clean sweeps in a row is nuts, by the way. Congrats!

Isn't it a newer and bigger stadium than Fratton Park?

Yes but there are many bigger better stadiums in Europe for a major final to be held at. I just looked at list of uk football stadiums and counted around 18 bigger in the UK. Of course a couple of those are being redeveloped currently(Stamford Bridge and White Hart Lane). I suppose the stadium could have been expanded ingame.

You missed my point - the fact a Portsmouth fan says St Mary's is a dump.

I think any Portsmouth fan would call a brand new stadium for Southampton a dump.
