Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*
Okay I've been meaning to post this for a while and as I just finished the 12/13 season, thought it was the best time if any:
In the 11/12 season I took over Derby County. After a pre season where the team didn't win a single game, we then went 31 league matches without defeat before winning the Championship and gaining promotion. But that's not the big story. I got Derby to the semi-final of the FA Cup were we met Man City. To my utter amazement, beat them 1-0 to set up an FA Cup final against Chelsea. There, we beat them 2-0 and may have scored more.
So started 12/13 signing Billy Sharp from Doncaster, Jamie Ness from Rangers (had him on loan the season before), Kevin Kilbane from Hull (also had him on loan) and Carlos Salcido from Fullham, plus a few youth players. Beat City again in the Community Shield, 3-0 this time. In the league, finished 4th behind City, Chelesea and United (Utd. won the PL) and a ahead of the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Spurs. Reached the FA Cup final again, only this time lost to Chelsea 1-0 with an 88 min Juan Mata goal. Reached the Europa League final where we beat Bayern Munich 3-2 in a game where we went behind, then in front, then lever only to have Jamie Ward score on the 85th min. The last week was crazy though. Had to play both finals plus three league games in seven days. Top scorer was Theo Robinson, with 32 games in all competitions.
I've just been offered a job at Liverpool. Should I take it or stay another season with The Rams?
