[FM19] Where Scholes goes...

August - December 2026/2027 - Middlesbrough F.C.

League

7b02c522499b5a69b515275f5c4721bc.png

We had a solid half of the season and currently sit in 5th position on 39 points. The lads are not getting carried away as we fully expect Liverpool and Spurs to find their form in the second half of the campaign. 

Carabao Cup

The draw has been unkind to us again as we drew Chelsea in the third round. The boys kept up their excellent record in penalty shootouts as we progressed all the way to the Semis, where Scholesy faces an almost impossible task against his old club. 

Europa League

The boys simply love the Europa League group stages as we progressed comfortably with a perfect record again. Dynamo Kyiv awaits us in the 1st Knockout Round.

Mitrovic has been declining since he turned 32 and Pietro assumed the mantle superbly by bagging 16 goals in 18 starts thus far. The downside to his good form is that he has been attracting major transfer interests from the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid. Will we lose him soon? :(

January Transfers

You simply cannot turn down the opportunity to sign a giant like Rob (for a mere 8.25 million pounds) who has decent technique and unbelievable determination to succeed. He replaces the outgoing Douglas Luiz, who moaned for a move after less than half a season at the club and we sold him for a healthy 4.75 million pounds profit.  

df2dcde640fd9983162d7ba7e11ded5b.jpg

Pellegri has been fantastic for us upfront but the declining Mitrovic is the only decent cover we have behind the Italian. Mitrovic's fellow countryman (Dejan Joveljic) was signed on loan from Bayern to give Scholesy more striking options. The Serbian has the same skill set as Mitrovic but he is 5 years younger and we have high hopes that he can add goals to our team in the second half of our campaign.

Carabao Cup Final 2026/2027 - Middlesbrough F.C.

9692702cb73176223591f7fc1f22af58.png

What a run-up it has been to the Carabao Cup Final! We drew a very strong Chelsea side in the 3rd Round but the lads kept up their good record in penalty shootouts to eliminate the Blues. We needed another penalty shootout to beat Southampton in the 4th round before a Stipek double helped us reach the semis at the expense of Derby. The boys came of age in the semi-finals against Scholesy's beloved Man United as two 1-0 wins helped us reach the final against the lesser Manchester outfit.

028cbc881d2dcdf1af315603a42651e2.gif

Man City took the lead early in the second half after a goalless first half where we were arguably the better side. It came from our corner-kick routine and Man City countered swiftly after we lost the ball in their area. Our keeper should have done better at the near post. 1-0 City. 

6222b9a1c9565dc60a823b62405c6171.gif

We went two goals down after the usually dependent Wesley Hoedt conceded a penalty. What was our keeper doing?! 2-0 City.

f3fdcb0d75fdfcd1e8e663135d740a83.gif

 Scholesy brought off both of our wide players after City's opening goal and it finally paid off in the 77th minute when both subs combined to pull a goal back for us. Game on. 2-1 Boro.

f06001939512a56d2e7215506608af62.gif

The boys kept working and it finally paid off when we were awarded a penalty in the last minute of regular time. Scholesy brought on Mitrovic as our third sub ten minutes ago and he smashed the ball past City's keeper with conviction. Could this be our year? 2-2 Boro.

a600707e841981becf467f827d24ae58.gif

City went down to ten men in extra time after their winger got injured with no available subs left. We continued to play on the counter as City still has some very special players left on the pitch. With 1 minute and a bit of extra-time left to play, Mitrovic ghosted into the near post area to smash the ball into the bottom corner after a superb counter-attack. What a performance off the bench from Mitrovic! 2-3 Boro.

Scholesy wins his first piece of silverware! \o/ And there are some nice words from an old friend :**)

Super stuff! Well done! 

Looks like Mitrovic isn’t done yet 

Cheers mate! Mitrovic is 32 and has been declining since last campaign but he's still able to make an impact from the bench!

Season Review 2026/2027 - Middlesbrough F.C.

League

e8d597f5cb50ae6a288e97f06b732b93.png

We managed to keep our place in the top 6 and finished in 5th position on 75 points, 1 point more than last season's total. The top 4 is a tough nut to crack but we will keep trying!

Carabao Cup

c66a0cdc92379b95bee4888eeef2e0f1.png

Scholesy finally won his first piece of silverware as a manager! It was a tough run facing the likes of Chelsea, United and City but the lads achieved the impossible by lifting the Carabao Cup \o/

FA Cup

7cb11a73ab6e5b9c25ca15a879e9c957.png

We had tough luck with the FA Cup draws again and faced Spurs and Liverpool in the 4th and 5th rounds. The boys did well to eliminate Spurs with a Mitrovic penalty but were up against it in the next round when we lost both of our right-backs to injury. Dael Fry had to deputise at right-back and we inevitably lost to an extra-time winner at Dael's back post. 

Europa League

b5f474dd3312240a4951542678d8fe98.png

Superb work by the lads again in the group stages but we fell at the quarter-final stage after we lost Dael Fry to injury in the 1st leg. As a result, we lost 1-3 away in Germany and that was too much for us to overturn in the second leg. 

Top 11

b13bd1099574c07359ef1664b960e269.jpg

We went into the campaign with very much the same squad this campaign and the lads went a step further to bag Scholesy's first ever competition win :**)

Top 3 Players

12138c7d19a5777a16c4b37457427b20.jpg

He's one of our own! He's one of our owwwwwn! Oh Dael Fry! He's one of our own! You cannot put Dael's importance to the team into words and our worst results always happen when he's unavailable. I'm so glad that he is the only one who has been here since the start and we saw another stellar campaign from our academy graduate!

87d31c49a05cc1f421eea1d5d60f1055.jpg

The veteran left-back is still performing consistently for us and his performance level has not dropped despite him turning 31 this year. He managed an impressive 12 assists and 2 goals after another solid season of football under his belt. 

cbc843888d5b27984fa24f0949f4e694.jpg

Pellegri took Mitrovic's place in the starting 11 this campaign and we have not missed the Serbian's presence since. The Italian managed 28 goals and 8 assists in a productive campaign and this has attracted the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Dortmund, Spurs & Milan. We face a tough fight keeping our talisman in the upcoming summer :(

Summer Transfers 2027/2028

706ba91b7e1f9ff6bde354ac3b98ee1e.png

We endured another frustrating summer as the big six circled around our top players. Our first-choice right-back was unsettled by a bid from Chelsea which was way below his value. As a result, he put in a transfer request and we sold him to a club below us (Fulham) when Chelsea withdrew their interest eventually. Bloody Blues. A couple of players were also brought in to plug the gaps left behind by the departing Hoedt and Mitrovic. 

Key Signings

Jordan Torunarigha

b28d2c0eb45101a7a4b3dbac0ef5e5bb.jpg

Jordan came in for a short stint a couple of years ago but left after half a season in search of Champions League football. He was earmarked as Hoedt's successor when we first signed him. When we decided against renewing Hoedt's contract (he is turning 33), Jordan was open to a move back to Riverside Stadium and Scholesy snapped him up immediately for a mere 8 million pounds. 

Edwin Michel

ba9604571c93715d5861379f2c335c03.jpg

We found our number one for the next fifteen years! Michel is a fantastic shot-stopper at a tender age of 19 and if he can be more commanding in the box and improve on his handling, it's only a matter of time before he gets the number one shirt. 

David Gautier

1d08475145a7d89a5fe6b002c9a9e9d4.jpg

David came in to replace our outgoing first-choice right-back for a huge fee but he is very quick and makes sensible decisions on the field. If the French speedster can improve a little on his positioning, he can grow into a top wing-back for us \o/

KUTGW mate. that keeper looks amazing!

He's developing along nicely and an Aerial Reach of 17 is amazing for someone who's 187 cm tall! I'm unhappy to see a red arrow on his determination though :( Hopefully he can grow to be the next Thibaut Courtois.. I mean the A. Madrid and Chelsea versions :D

We drew a big team (Liverpool) early again in the Carabao Cup. As our board deemed the competition as not important, Scholesy decided to field our second choice eleven. The lads did well until one of our players got sent off for two bookable offences. We hung on for the penalty shootout and the next 'Thibaut Courtois' saved four out of five Liverpool penalties. FOUR! He's only 19. What a legend!

Weston McKennie - The Unlikely Goalscorer from Midfield

a14cb7744ef8e3c5187f67ca0da9949d.jpg

Our very own Captain America (he's the captain of the USA football team!) has been a pleasant surprise for Scholesy playing in that Box To Box Midfielder role. Despite not being the best finisher, he has bagged an impressive 10 goals and 5 assists and we still have 2-3 months of the season to go. I still couldn't quite make out how he has developed into such a decent goal threat from midfield!

59145c2779fc524a48849341bf25b714.gif

Perhaps he has picked up a few tips from his manager ;)

I'm very sorry to say that we finished some way behind the title winners :( Media tipped us to finish 7th and it's almost impossible to win it when we hardly have any players who can get into the first eleven of the top sides!

Season Review 2027/2028 - Middlesbrough F.C.

League

8eb3d30369665eabf3e54fe326f6476f.png

We finally broke into the top 4!! It's quite incredible when we went into the new campaign with a squad of similar quality as last season's and we were tipped by the media to finish below the top 6. The players performed to their absolute best and we finished in 4th position on 82 points, 7 points higher than last season's total. Champions League football at the Riverside Stadium next season! We keep improving \o/

Carabao Cup

786d054c37b0bb2f9db987b8d7170b6a.png

We drew two top 6 sides early again and our second string eventually came undone in the quarter-finals in a 0-1 defeat against Spurs. 

FA Cup

27f6c316b9fe4cc0fab7ca1f240b5222.png

I'm sick of complaining about the cup draws but how can you keep quiet when we drew Chelsea and Arsenal in the opening two rounds? The lads did Scholesy so proud by eliminating the London giants but we eventually got knocked out in the semi finals against Man United by a David Alaba free-kick in extra-time. Great effort by the lads in the FA Cup this season :applause: 

Europa League 

9e8d8a04db5c2b28d4b33e14a398075f.png

5f8e94528534974f727712e65706daa2.jpg

Scholesy is so gutted that he failed to lift his second trophy in as many seasons. The boys finished on 18 points again in the group stages and defied all odds to reach the final at Wembley to face the mighty Dortmund (they won the Bundesliga last season). We were the better side in the final too with more shots but fell to a disappointing goal from a poorly-defended Dortmund throw-in. It has been a really positive season but we struggled to cheer ourselves up after ending the campaign on such a low note :(

Top 11

8320d8dda0bc3290a635f1eff5ddb394.jpg

This squad had no right to finish fourth and reach the Europa League final but they did it after losing blood, sweat and tears on the pitch. 

Top 3 Players

cc7c9c706d74ceb2b3d08da0bd44cf28.jpg

Willem established himself as our first-choice right winger this campaign and managed a healthy 15 goals and 7 assists in 44 starts. That's an average of 1 goal contribution in 2 games from the wing and that's an incredible piece of business by Scholesy after he signed him on a free transfer in 2026.    

c8170c937e17fcd133b8ffe9b62adba0.jpg

Weston is our biggest piece of mystery this season after he grew into a goalscorer from midfield, bagging an impressive 12 goals and 9 assists in the Box To Box Midfielder role. Fantastic season by our very own Captain America \o/ 

b8cbc5a802d99f12aee40a8bfbb71dea.jpg

That Attribute Analysis graph looks terrible but Scholesy's godson has had a terrific season for Boro, bagging 16 goals and 8 assists from the left wing with many of them points-saving ones. We picked him up for a mere 3.6 million pounds in 2023 and he has been an absolute bargain for us. Angelic Angel is Scholesy's player of the season!

Congrats on 4th place. You were only 9 points behind first place. That's a good sign perhaps

We had to be happy with 4th as we have the 7th best squad in the league. Scholesy has managed constant improvement in terms of points total as well :brock: Long may it continue!

Summer Transfers 2028/2029

3e0ae3d82bd8335095193040c59d7b7d.png

Having secured Champions League football for the campaign ahead, Scholesy thought that he would be shopping for players of the same quality as the big 6. To his dismay, the players who were willing to join us are still at the level below the big 6 and we struggled to improve the quality of our squad yet again. Players were brought in reluctantly to replace the ageing trio in a very underwhelming summer transfer window.   

Key Signings

Francisco Javier Cuevas

e12bde5a4a345f465f65816342a6f69a.jpg

It's incredibly hard to find quality left-backs on the market and Francisco was the best we could bring in. The Spanish left-back always makes the right decisions on the pitch but is not the fittest of players. If he can steer clear of injuries, I'm sure he will be a useful addition to the squad.

Matt Spencer

4bb6bb4fa5b432e7bd92fdec441b444d.jpg

Spencer was brought in to replace the China-bound Diop and the Englishman is a solid center-back who is very good in the air. However, he lacks bravery and composure in his game and we will have to wait to see if he is good enough for Champions League football.  

Jorge Henrique

255edf5214bd12623dffbf2076e858b3.jpg

Jorge is by far our most exciting signing this summer. The Brazilian reminds Scholesy of Kante and is incredibly quick for a central midfield player. He will provide some much needed bite in the spine of our team.
