I stuck in the disk again and it came up autorun so i clicked into something at the bottom and it came up all these different sections. It then took me to a place where i can install FM and i done it. So now i am back with FM but the only bad thing is. I now don't have any of my past seasons. My new one with Tottenham which was great. I also have lost all the facepacks and the updater
I think i might as soon as i get the update and that sorted. Any links too the update would be appreciated
How you getting on in your Atletico season anyway
I started a Tottenham one. Got too the final of the Carling cup. Last 16 of Uefa Cup. 3rd in the league. Around 6 points off top were i also have a game in hand and had still to play Chelsea who were top at home where i hadn't yet lost all season and only conceded one to Birmingham who are bottom
Then my game bloomin done something and i don't have it anymore. I started with 57m after getting 30 and then getting it increased to 45. And then later on in the month of August my board added yet another 12m on without me asking for it
I sold Berbatov for 17.5m. Lennon for 10m. Jenes for 7m and a few others all for a couple of million. Malbranque being the biggest for 3.5m. After this i went on a complete spending spree signing Hamisik from Napoli for 7m. He is a must by. I bought Garay for his minimum release clause. Lukas Podolski for a staggering 7.5m . I bought a lot more but sadly cannot remember them but the signing i can remember was David Villa for 24m .. He only wanted 18000 on wages. It was great!
Jamie how the fuck did you get so much $$$ with Spurs.
And Hamsik for 7m?
Secrets plz. I never seem to be able to get him for anything under 20, hence why despite my mancrush for him on FM08, I never bother with actually buying him.
And if you actually care about my Atleti season: Raul Garcia is out for 3 months with a broken shin, there are relentless chasers for Barzagli and Squillaci and Simao, the usual Aguero and Maxi Rodriguez bs and I cannot part with any of them, because they're too good.
Barzagli and Squillaci are both unhappy but apart from Garay, I don't have another quality CB to fill the void if one leaves. All the interest is from Inter and Bayern too. Fucking hate them.
I've got a question. Does a league's or country's prestige increase/decrease and how? I'm asking this, because I play Dutch league (6th season) and I've won Champions league four times in a row, but still, when I want to buy a player from top Spanish or English clubs, the player say that "Moving to a Dutch club would be a bad career move".
So here it is, i'm gonna try fit it all in one post and make it as un-dragging-on-able as possible. Basically this is what has happened on my fm adventure which all started in Brazil with giants Sao Paulo.
The Early Days
So, i start my career in Brazil with Sao Paulo, a few things you should know about the Brazillian legaue.
First season with Sao Paulo, i made no transfers as the budget was minimal, i did however have the services of the well known Adriano who was on loan with me for the season. He would prove to be pivitol in my title bid.
I would enforce an attacking approach consisting of a flat back four, two central midfielders, three attacking midfielders and a striker. At first the tactic failed as we stumbled through the first two games with a 0-0 draw too Corinthians followed by a terrible 1-0 defeat at the hands of Atletico Paranaense, but as you should all know, tactical consistancy is the key to winning matches, so i stuck with it with the exception of a few tweaks and results started to turn around. We would pick up easy wins and we would scape wins but the points would keep coming and come October we found outself at the pinncale, and we left the challengers trailing in our wake. We went on a 28 match unbeaten run in both league and cup competition ultimatly losing to colo colo in the first leg of the Copa Sudamericana which we would go on to turn around winning the second leg 4-0 to progress to the final 4-1 on aggregate. The unbeaten run stretched to 35 games in the league. Which meant we finished the season with just one defeat which came to us on the second day of the season. I would also go on to guide the side to a 4-1 aggregate victory over River Plate in the Sudamericana Final.
Below i will provide a few links providing the seasons statistics.
Now my days at Sao Paulo were starting to come to a close, but i would stay on for one more campaign, this year in the annual Sao Paulo State Championship, consisting of teams from the Sao Paulo area, this season would only however be played over a total of 19 games, with the top 4 teams entering a knockout playoff to decide the champions. The season would continue the way the last started i went the entire season unbeaten, only dropping points once 2-2 against Gremio Barueri. I would finish the campaign a comfortable 8 points ahead of second places Santos. The 4 teams to qualify would be Ourselves, Santos, Corinthians and Palmeiras. Here is how it panned out.
So that was the end of my reign at Sao Paulo, as soon as i was offered the coaching job at FC Bayern Munich it was an oppourtunity i had to jump at, the chance to work with players such as Klose, Schweinsteiger and Lucio. I left Sao Paulo having won everything but the Copa Libertadores which i had reached the Semi-Finals of, but i considered the Bayern job more important.
FC Bayern Munich
The Early Days
So i took the job at Bayern Munich and had a tasty looking budget to work with of around 30 million GBP and some already amazing talent to consider. I made quite a few signing as i settled down to the job, bringing back a player i had grown to love at Sao Paulo by the name of Ale who i brought in for around 7.5 million. I also completed the signing of Guilherme for 16 million and some others that you will see from this screenshot, i was particularly pleased with picking up Raul Mereiles for 50k as his contract neared and end. I was dissapointed to lose Ribery, but what can you do when the chairman steps in? Here was the team when i had completed all the signings and such anyway, this is about half way through the season, as you will see Klose has a remarkable record. Link.
So the team was set for the task ahead, task being too make sure that the dissapointing 4th place finish from the previous season didn't happen again. But the challenge i had anticipated before the beginning of the season never came, i tore through the league only losing two games one which was a shocking 1-0 defeat to Freiburg in a match where i had 11 more shots than they did. Winning matches like i had never done before. But their was one player in my squad that i wondered wheather i could have done it without. Miroslav Klose, whos goal record ended up at something like 50 goals in 30 games which for a 30 year old is quite simply remarkable. Not forgetting the amazing success i also had within the Uefa Cup where i steered through to the final to win the toughest match i've ever been a part of 5-1. Oh and did i mention i won the German Cup aswell? Here are some stats.
Aight, so now that i feel like i have bored the F*** out of all of you im gonna stop, i hope you did enjoy reading, but my hands are hurting from typing now anyway. If you would like me too complete the report just drop a message and ill be happy to finish it in the next couple of days. Also if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. Took me long enough so i hope some of you found it interesting of useful.
