Never really, I have a real tactical problem overcoming bigger teams, although I did beat Barcelona 2-0 with FC Basel if that counts? it was in the ECC group stage

Cork City 5 -1 Bayer M

They had two players sent off and gave away a penalty doing so, but I was still dancing around the room. icon_wink.gif

I wasn't the victor but it was a nailbiting finish to a match that had me on the edge of my seat the whole time.

Lowly Bath City took on Newcastle in a thrilling FA Cup Third Round. Newcastle got two early goals and it looked like it was just going to go downhill from there. My blokes were a determined lot though and fought back in the second half, hitting Newcastle on the counter and getting one past the keeper. From then on it was Newcastle on the back foot as my boys had a wiff of a draw and sending the match to extra time.

In the dieing minutes my striker once again got past the Newcastle defense and shot one by the keeper, running off to the corner in frenzied celebration. But it was not to be as the assistant ref called an offside. Not long later the match was over but my boys showed they were not scared of anyone and can take it to the big teams.

Final score: Newcastle 2 - 1 Bath City

CM03/04 - In the FA Cup, my Boston United team won 1-0 at home to then Premiership side Southampton. We scored in the very first minute, then clung on.

Oh, and it was all the sweeter given that I'd recently been sacked by Southampton!

I actually got Boston to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, thanks to lucky draws. Lost 3-0 at home to Man. United in the end, though.

I've never really had any really big giantkillings, but Wrexham 3-3 Derby (which I won on penalties) was an exciting one and they were a few divisions above me at the time.

I did beat Celtic 2-1 as Livingston, though I was in the SPL with them at the time so it's not a giant killing per se, though they were a much bigger club. Oh, and the previous season I held Rangers to 3-3 at Ibrox even though I was in a mess at the time.

On one of my first saves I started with Villa, my first game was against Arsenal at the Emirates.

We won 4-1. Sadly, I lost the next 5 games (including a devastating 3-0 spanking at the hands of Blues at Villa Park).

Beat Everton 1-0 at their place, and Blackburn 3-1 at home as Leeds when we were in CC div 1. In the Champ I beat Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge. All in the Coca Cola cup. Lost the next matches though.

Incidentally, I did this by reversing the evil SI bug that cheats users - couple of shots all game for me in all three games, while the AI was in double figures. I'd like to think it was my defensive, short, slow passing tactics that helped, but it was probably just a bug.

08: Best I've done so far was beat Wolves 3-0 with Worcester in the FA Cup third round.

07: I took Swindon from League Two to the Premiership in four season. Three seasons later, I got into the UEFA cup and I beat AC Milan 1-0 at the San Siro first leg. The player who scored the winner was Chris Casement, who had been a very poor signing for me, and very rarely played, but I played him because of injuries and suspensions. I drew 1-1 at home with them scoring in the last minute. Unfortunately, I got buried 4-2 at Ibrox and drew 0-0 at home to go out.

In CM97/98, I took Norwich into the Champion's League after three seasons and beat Roma 11-0 at home (they had a grey goalkeeper who let everything past).
