Well obviously I don’t really write here anymore. I mean the last update was June 2014 when I talked about Football Manager.
It’s funny actually as I don’t really play Football Manager anymore, however I come here to update WordPress and the plugins once per month(for security) and I end up looking at that post and it gets me right motivated to actually get a football manager game going.
Work wise I’ve been so busy I just don’t want to dedicate the time to Football Manager. I mean I’ve tried – holy crap have I tried – over the last little while, but I always lose interest.
I must confess – I completely forgot I was writing here about Football Manager.
Just got so busy working on my World Cup Tips website that when it came to writing – that was all I was focused on. Yet while writing articles on exciting clashes like Japan vs Ivory Coast, I was also hammering away at Football Manager.
Let me give some quick updates:
Season 2: I ended up doing quite a few signings. I snagged youngsters for the future in Ryan Gauld and Tom Ince. I spent 34 million pounds on Joao Moutinho, and picked up Frank Lampard and Joleon Lescott for free. I also spent 375k on Micah Richards and 925k on Mikel Arteta.
I ended up winning the league, losing the semi-finals of the Champions League to Munich, and winning the League Cup. Not bad at all.
The story of the season though was Arsenal. They got relegated to the Championship, then got relegated AGAIN.
So of course, I had to take over Arsenal.
I’ll have more updated on that later – I’ve spent 134m and got 3 different squads. It’s quite amazing.
Right now I have to go back to writing more bloody match previews for WorldCupBettingTips.org.
Been awhile since I did this – got back into a Football Manager 2014 game.
Long story short: simulated till December making sure Man Utd were shite. 18th position and Moyes got sacked mid-December. I took over. I steered them away from relegation and got us into 4th in the league, for Champions League Qualification. I also won us the Europa League, and got us to the FA Cup Final. We lost just 3 games all season. 1-0 away to Chelsea in the league, 3-0 away to Liverpool in the league, and 2-0 away to Chelsea in the FA Cup Final.
It was an amazing season as we won every game apart from that(except a 2-2 draw against Palace away). I generally stuck with a 4-3-3 although modified it a bit. Read more…
