Past 2 games, are probably the first two games since FM10 where I've had absolutely no luck. Said 'Title Challenge' for Juventus, finished 3rd, fired. Followed by a Coppa Italia final. At the moment, playing as Nottingham Forest currently. Finished 8th, after managing to pull a decent gap in 4th place, followed by a string of red cards and injuries, to fall down the table. In destructive mode, will probably alter from 4-1-2-1-2 to a 4-3-1-2 and allow the players to be more aggressive.

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?
id stay with derby see if you can win the league with them plus i support them so its nice to hear someone else managing them on football manager

Well, I turned down Liverpool...but got the Man.Utd instead. Havent signed anyone yet, but looking for a right back as one of the twins only has a 2 and a half rating, but have young dutch player with a 5 star potential rating. Brought back Welbeck from loan with FC Twente for pre-season.

Another game swap. Woo.

Otelul this time, Romania. Exciting, tipsy-topsy first 18 months. Started with a bang, then a fall, then a big bang, and thats been chugging along decently since.

First season was me getting pummeled, destroyed in the Champions League. Group was Barcelona, Shakhtar and Lille. Stood no chance. Conceded 20, scored 2. Since that moment, my season turned around. League results improved, and I came from roughly 10 points, and about 3 more games played than the top 5 at the time of the 10 points, to win the Romanian League title. Nothing on FM beats winning the title on the final day, for sure.

Second season, played only the first 6 months so far. League standing is better, and a far better Champions League campaign. Draws against CSKA (0-0), Dortmund (3-3) and Lyon (1-1), with losses to them mixed in between. Had I beaten Lyon on the final game, would of been into the Knockout Stages. Oh well, another year.

Have to say, these smaller leagues are great fun every time I've done them. Finding new players, and creating some great European moments as the ultimate underdog, the team that stood no chance.

^ Otelul is a shitty team, believe me. Even my hometown team beat them a year ago. If you want to get anywhere in Europe with a Romanian team, go with CFR Cluj.

I considered CFR Cluj, but the main thing that tempted me with Otelul was that they put directly into the Champions League this season. Wanted that extra 3-4million on the transfer budget for my second season. Antal and Ropa have been immense, their left-back, can't remember his direct name, has been an assist machine, and signing Sergui Bus (can't do foreign accents on words) was a bargain. Also added Gaz Mardan 'keeper, been a steal, very solid. Their team was a bit gash at the start, though. Lack of quality depth. Had to wait for tactical fluidity, since I avoid winter signings.

My current save I started as manager of Birmingham City.

Thanks to a few lucky draws and playing a blinder against Everton I managed to reach the League Cup final, however losing out to Wigan in my first season as manager, whilst finishing 7th in the Championship. During my second season on the job I won the Championship a achieved promotion to the Premier League. My first season in the Premiership was tricky - I had a limited budget and lost a couple of key players, so I heavily relied on signing up-and-coming youngsters on loan and a couple of older players on free transfers. Despite the struggle I achieved an admirable 14th place finish, after spending the majority of the season bouncing in and out of the relegation zone. Near the end of my third season at the club, my job was the speculation of most news outlets after I was sought out by former conquest Everton. I turned down the offer as Birmingham continued to climb. I've now reached mid-way through my fourth season as Birmingham manager, after a major cash injection from a new investor I have took Birmingham to 8th in the Premiership and to a second League Cup final under my tenure. However, the Liverpool job has recently become available and my time at the Blues may be limited.
