Ive decided to give the game another go and especially the challenge. i decided on afc wimbledon in the southern conference. i managed to win the league in my first season mainly thanks to arsenal my feeder team sending me a awesome 19 year old polish lad in goal.
now in the conference mid-table side managed to get loads of kids that were released from premiership sides and arsenal have sent me 3 decent youngsters as well including my fav polish lad!


If anyone's interested i managed to get afc wimbledon to the premiership within 7 seasons!! unreal i won the conference in my 2nd season then it was promotion 2 season's in a row winning both div 1 and 2 then 2nd season in championship won the play-offs. this was all done on free tranfers from the top 4 side's. Survived my first premiership season in a ground holding just 7000 and have now moved to a 20,000 seater stadium. Next stop europe which is alot harder then anything else so far.

And now I'm back on CM2006 again, with a whole new Mansfield Town team in League Two and a slightly bastardised version of Rupert303's tactics from page 3 driving my team. And while we've only played two friendlies, the results were a 2-0 win against Derby and a 1-1 draw against Bolton.

Fuckin' aye, taking down the Championship/Premier League giants.

I'd like to announce I've just retained the Champions League with Palermo in my 7th season. Haven't won Serie A for 5 years though

Playing FM2010, and having the fucking time of my life!

I was Huddersfield in my first season, came second 8 points behind Leeds when predicted 8th. Very good indeed I thought, and I thought I'd be battling relegation in the Championship when predicted 21st. Instead, I came 2nd again only two points behind Forest and I'm now 3rd in the Premier League after 8 games!

For my second season I only brought in Chris Smalling on loan, and for my third I've bought Smalling, Wilshere, Beckford and Fiorillo. So generally the same nucleus squad that I won promotion with - and Neil Mellor, bought for 95k at the start of my first season and banging in 32 goals the first time and 27 the second. Leg.End.

finished third, made it to the play-off final against Scunthorpe. Was 3-1 up with half an hour to go, managed to concede two and go to penalties. Both teams score their first four penalties, until Becchio (first choice striker since Beckford fucked off to Hull) steps up and hits it over.

What tactics are you playing Epi? I need to know.

I'm currently three seasons into my quest to get York City into the Premier League, I finished 9th in the BSP, then 4th but won the playoffs, now I'm currently trying to handle mid-table obscurity in League 2. I blew my 80k transfer budget on flops in the first 3 weeks and now I'm having to rely on a few free transfer signings to try and keep me from the drop.

I must have had about eight job offers from Championship sides but declined them all, York City will make the Premier League!

back on 01/02 (a week before my exams... FFFFFFUUUUUUU) - took control of the mighty Bristol City in Division 2. After back to back promotions, as of December 2003 I'm 7th in the Premier League (InterToto Cup here I come). Big name signings include Stevey Finnan, Igors Stepanovs and a 22-yr old Andrei Arshavin. 

EDIT not quite. Andrei's work permit fell through

I've recently got back into FM 2008, playing as Arsenal to get used to the game again before attempting to make a small team massive.

Question : When you guys play do you ever leave your current team for a new job? I usually just want to build one team up, although have always fancied starting unemployed with no reputation and seeing how far I can get.

Just started my 10th season with Palermo. Won the Champions League 3 times but the league only once. Been on it 23 days. Sad act.

I like to take over an international team usually (if I get offered), but only when I've taken a team as far as I can really. Otherwise I stick with my starting team (though I'd like to try starting unemployed sometime... I'm not that good at it though so it would only end badly )

also HELP: I was doing fine with my setup in the Premier League (was first/second for a while as well), but I just stopped winning in January and haven't won in three months. What happened, I didn't change anything? Tips much appreciated.

Doing a proper Roy Hodgson job at Bristol - just toppled Real Madrid 4-3 on aggregate to make the UEFA Cup semi final. Currently riding high in fourth in the league, which is fortunate because we're hemorrhaging money due to the obscene wages I'm giving players.

I cant seem to get past the Quarter finals of any major tournament with England. Thinking of changing my name to Sven.

I've finished first in the qualifying (without losing a single game) for 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2016 and lost in the Quarters of each one.

Yeah, I've never won it with England either. Strange how all those great players can't seem to do it at the major tournaments.....

Rooney won the Golden Boot at 2010 though.

He's now got 119 caps and 78 goals.

I started a new game on Football Manager 2010 the day after England got knocked out of the world cup in reality.

I started out as England Manager, and won the World Cup straight away, with a very different and untested team to that of Capello. Then somehow between the end of the World Cup and the start of the Euros (despite qualifying for them) England dropped down to rank 16th in FIFAs world rankings, and I was put into the group of death...

England
Portugal
Holland
France

I got to the final game of the group stage in third, needing a win by a massive margin to get through to the Quarter Finals, managed to beat the Dutch 5-1 and I got through. Next game was Italy, who I managed to beat 3-0 and then the Semi Final was against Spain, which I won 4-2.

So who was in the final? Switzerland! The team I had actually lost to 1-0 in my final friendly before the tournament. Seems like an easy final on paper, but then I've knocked out all the big teams on my way to the final already, so who else was left? Managed to win 1-0 and of course now we've won both trophies, which worked England up to rank 3.

By this time I was starting to prepare for my campaign for the next World Cup, and I started getting offers from clubs. Originally after winning the World Cup I was getting offers from Serie B teams. However after playing my first game in the confederations cup, I got an offer from Juventus, I asked to delay the decision till the end of the tournament, as I was looking for a move away from England and if I won the Confederations cup I'd have taken them as far as they could go. Anyway, got England to the Semi Final of the Confederations cup and Man Utd put an offer in, they'd sacked their previous manager (Mancini?!?!?!?) despite winning the league. I couldn't refuse so I said yes, luckily I could continue with England till the end of the tournament. I managed to win the confederations cup, and having already started World Cup qualifiers, I decided I'd stay on till England had qualified, but with a comfy position at the top of the group and the Utd job demanding more time (I literally had no time to make transfers as I was always preparing for games with both sides) I had to leave my England post, but by then they were rank 1 in the world and I was now a World Class manager in the Hall of Fame, in 3 seasons no less.

I turfed out all the dead wood at United, and on top of an existing 70m transfer budget (where did that come from?!?!) I had about 100m to spend in the end. So I bought Keirrison from Barcelona (who at that point in the game had gone up to 35m price tag), I'd bought Giouseppe Rossi back for 10m, I'd bought Kolarov, Vucinic, and a number of lesser players, and I had a very decent side, we were winning all the pre season games 9/10 goals to nil, and these weren't easy opponents either.

Unfortunately the season started, and it was draw after draw after draw, I've won a few games, particularly 6-1 against Liverpool and 5-1 against man City, but we've been under performing. Managed to just qualify for the knockouts of the Champions League and got Vidic to call a players meeting to sort out the problems and now we've won our last few games.

Since then I've not been back on it for a few days, but it's really enjoyable, only problem is absolutely no decent keepers want to sign for me.

Oh I also joined Utd with 8 players in the reserve team which was weird, so I bought a load of youngsters from the likes of Real and Barca and paid compensation for usurping their little up and coming stars. And then signed Helguerra, Henry and Beckham for free to get them all playing with the reserves.

I loaded up a game of FM2007 I hadn't played in a while. In the game I'd won the PL with Liverpool in my first season. As usual I cleared out a lot of deadwood and brought in loads of youngsters. I finished runner up to Chelsea the next season, then with a wopping 95 points I finished runner up again although I did win the CL! Now in my fourth season I've got bucketloads of cash, a young team and I'm now in New Anfield raking in the cash from tickets. Not like real life at all! I'm topping the league quite comfortably but thought I'd go mad and sign Messi for 59m. I've got him playing out of his skin just behind Daniel Sturridge, with Gerrard and Guy Asulin on the wings and Alonso and a youngster sat behind passing the ball about with ease.

I reached the pinnacle of the game last night. I have been named the greatest manager of all time. 16 seasons with Palermo. 7 Serie A titles. 6 Champions Leagues.

But that's not all. Has anyone else seen this cos none of my mates have and it has raised the bar in football management. Palermo are building a new stadium and they have named it after me! I was in tears of joy.

That's quite an achievement. I haven't played FM for a few months now in anticipation of FM2011 which is out shortly. Cannot wait.
