Thats harsh, i've never had that before, granted i have only had 2 games on FM12 both have been lengthy and never fucked up.

 

Can see why you are fucked off, i would be aswell.

The thing is I have lost a few games in the past but they can all be explained by power cuts whilst saving or Battery dying whilst saving or windows updates. These ones are just random. No reason.

 

I had won 5 out of 6 aswell and thought Cambridge were the ones :(

 

Gonna go unemployed again now.

I've had that on past ones where its crashed and just think ahh fuck it and don't play the game for weeks. I've had 2 crash dumps on this current game im playing but both pretty much after saving. Defo no had anything like The Opinions had.

 

With how shit im doing with City at the moment i would'nt mind this game monging out.

December 29th. New manager of Oxford. 18th in League 2. Came in and released 5 players, sold 2 and won my first game 2-1 at home. Bought in new staff as the old lot all buggered off. Dario Gradi and Nigel Martyn amongst them :)

 

Going to try and plow through this season and then sort them out for real in the summer. Rght now the side is packed with loans and pure shit.

 

They have a good set up and decent enough ambition for this level so this could be good. Providing I get no crash dumps.

Finished the season empty handed much to my annoyance, for the money i spent it wasn't good enough performances wise, my top scorer had 32 league goals, after that the nearest only had 9, we were sloppy at the back alot of the season aswell.

 

Potential arseache coming up though, The rich Arab wants out of city, if he goes and is replaced by someone whos not going to fund the team in the same manner the club could be fucked.

Sacked after 1 full season and 4 games of the new season, no complaints from me, was fucking shite. The final nail in the coffin was a 3-2 loss at home to Chelsea, Chelsea scored all their goals with 10 men on the pitch, wish i stayed at Arsenal now. I Spent close to 300M while i was there and all it got me was an early knock out in the FA Cup & Carling Cup, aswell as finishing 2nd in the League, i spent a small fraction of that at Arsenal and won plenty in the 2 seasons i was there.

 

Need to make my mind up now what to do

Plymouth is a long game and challenge, no money and a small squad.

 

Thanks for the suggestion, I do like a challenge. Which is why I've picked Real Madrid.

Still clearing out the shit at West Ham. In january now, sold Gary O'Neill to Wigan for £1m, not good enough to justify 45k a week. Also shipped out Sam Baldock to Bristol City for £1.5m, made 3 appearances and its 10k p/w off the wage bill.

 

Their finances a total wreck, lose like £1.5m-2m a month. I'll ship out Nolan at the end of the season, because his value will go up when I'm promoted, 50k + bonuses a week and hes scored 1 and got 3 assists, Bressan is tearing shit up in his place.

 

Coasting to the title, 8 points clear in january, my 18 game unbeaten run was just broken by Palace.

I got turned down for the Wet Spam job :huh: , despite them being in the Championship. Then i was linked with the Norwich job, i failed to get that aswell. Next job came up was Colchester, i applied for that and got it. Looked about after taking over and realised a Tycoon owned them. Hes doesn't appear to be the kind that throws money at the club, hes reluctant to improve the training and youth facilities. That said i have 9M to spend though i haven't touched the money so far, no one about worth going for.

I am so piss poor in the lower leagues its unbeleiveable, i used to thrive in them on the older games, now im just shit. Blowing with Colchester already. Decided to stop that game and start a new one unemployed with no reputation, that way i can see how bad i am.

Omar Koroma. Who ever you get, sign him.

 

So much for coasting to the title with West Ham, let a 10 point lead slip to 2 in a month. Fack

Got the Droylsden job in December, Omar Koroma's signed for Farnborough.

 

My problem in the lower leagues has been i either concede loads and score none or concede loads and score loads.

He looks like that 15 year old Philip Pinder i took a screenshot of the other week, if he turns out anything like Pinder you have a gem on your hands, I'd happy have him at my Droyslden team, i got Counago in on a free, hes either well shit or amazing, wish he could just be consistant.

Done my first season or just over half a season with Droylsden, finished 8th, could have got into the playoffs on the final day with abit of look but i lost at home to Hinkley.

 

Being this low down is fucking boring, i look for players and i can't afford jack shit, the club is losing money big time, they lost 111% of their turnover in the first season, only plus is i've managed to keep hold of Pablo Counago

Marseille-27th April 2011.... just been knocked out the CL by Real Madrid! 2-2 they won on Goal Difference.. they won at home 1-0, we went 2-0 up at home then I changed the tactics to a more ball keeping defensive style.. Kaka popped up with a frustrating header from a corner bastard!!.. Real vs Man United Final... Makes me want to stay on as Marseille manager now just to get revenge and win the Champions League next season.. Been having shit luck with Injuries since January to. though I have pretty much almost won the domestic treble playing a left back right wing all season.. got Strasbourg who are in L2 in the French Cup Final next, then 5 hard league games with 3 points and a game in hand in it! .. tense times ahead :)

 

Oh and the referee had a shocker in Madrid's Favour apparently! <_<

Intense game against 2nd place Lyon, all my players were on about 88 to 92% fitness at the start, they had 100% fit team, they hit the post 4 times! I managed to scrape a 1-0 win some how.

I read some bloke called Fergus Bell is good for the league im in, apparently a goal machine, so its sods law when i look him up hes fucking retired because no one signed him. Instead i've got Counago whos showing his age in the second season and i've just signed Barry Hayles, whos 40.

Started a network game with a mate, I'm Arsenal, and I think it was Drai mentioned it before but the injuries are woeful. At the start you've Squilacci, Diaby and Wilshere injured which is fair enough I think but my list just rocketed up to between 10-14 injuries at any one time - Walcott broken ankle, Chu-Young Park fractured arm, Sagna broken wrist yada yada yada. I signed Willian from Shakhtar for £15m and he got crocked three minutes into a reserve game ffs!

Season 2027/2028 review

The season started with somewhat of an air of uncertainty, with the chairman announcing he wanted to leave the club, perhaps due to the ailing financial situation. The winds of change were blowing and as with all things, it could be either good or bad. It took until November before the takeover rumours really began and despite the uncertainty up till that point, I'd managed to keep the squad focused and on point. Another European Super Cup was added to the trophy cabinet and we sat atop the premier league.

 

As November ground on, the first takeover rumour was announced in the media. Another board member could be looking to replace the current chairman. Two weeks later, a consortium reportedly led by a former footballer were rumoured to be in the mix. Entering December and still going strong in all competitions, a mysterious foreign tycoon was now looking to takeover Northern Thunder F.C. I scoffed at that, the chances of a tycoon taking over? Yeah right.

 

Nothing else was heard until the day before our first game at the Club World Cup, when Kuwaiti tycoon Nasser Al-Kandari announced his intentions to buy the club and promised a takeover bounty of 75m if successful. Good signs, but not concrete yet. We forged on with the Club World Cup, winning it as expected. No sooner had the lads got home from the U.S, BAM, the transfer embargo hits. It would seem this Kuwaiti tycoon is putting his money where his mouth is.

 

Right before the turn of the year, the takeover is complete. Nasser Al-Kandari finds himself the new owner of Northern Thunder F.C and the club is promptly delisted from the stock exchange as a result. The entire board of directors have been replaced by an army of Nasser's Kuwaiti compatriots. It would appear that Nasser is a fan of my work too, my job security is higher after the takeover than it was before! I approach him on a subject I've been trying to get the previous board to agree to the last few years to no avail.

 

"We need to build a new stadium to realise our potential." I was taken back when Nasser Al-Kandari immediately agreed, no argument, nothing. Great! Planning begins. That's all the board stuff taken care of - football can return as our number one focus again! The march toward the Premier League title was imperious, beating second place Chelsea by no less than 17 points. The free scoring squad set a new record for most team goals in the league now sitting at 115 goals. Along the way we claim an 8th FA Cup too. Attempts at a third successive Champions League however were met with failure.

 

With the season at a close, the board inform me that the planning phase for the new stadium is over. Construction of the new stadium dubbed "Northern Thunder Stadium" begins in earnest, with a capacity of 95,271 and will be completed at the June 2029. A little disappointed they haven't named it after me, but that's a right ol' big stadium in England. I'll take it for now.

 

The winds of change are blowing for Chelsea too it seems, with Roman Abrahamovic looking to sell. A local businessman is in pole position to become the new Chelsea owner.
