    Still only my 01/02 with Panathinakos, won five league titles in a row then I had what I like to call "the game ****ing me over moment" with two games left I'm one point clear of second place who we are playing in that second last fixture, a win will give us the title, we lead 2-1 before they get an injury time penalty to equalise, I lose the last game and they win theirs, title gone. Have since won the next two titles.

    Not having much luck in European competition, in the past nine seasons have made the champions league semi finals five times and still havent gotten to a final. Also lost a uefa cup final in there somewhere.

    Have tried a bit of international management, firstly with New Zealand and went nowhere, lost the regionals to Aus 2-1 and then I quit. Later had a go with Australia and made the World Cup quarter finals in 2018 before losing to Greece 2-1. Just been given the Romanian job but havent played a game yet.

    Being 2019/2020 my entire squad is regens so no point listing my players, but most of them are guns.

    Finished with FM for the night, will pick it back up on monday night, which is the next time i'm off work. Halfway point in the season, 19 games, 21 points, sat in 12th, almost steadied the ship (when i say steadied, its wobbling back and forth constantly, but at least i know its not going down).

    Think i need to shore up the defence a bit, and mebbie another striker (though thats a luxury), any recommendations for £12m who's British/Irish and will come to Sunderland? Thinking of snatching Dunne if I can

    Lescott is a bit of a club whore in the games i've played in '08 so he might be worth a shot (or are you needing someone better?). Should give you plenty to have lash at a decentish striker as well.

    haha yeh pretty much, out of the "big" Greek sides they were doing the poorest when I got the job, struggling to avoid relegation, no money, crap stadium and it took a good three seasons to crack the top two. Have some pretty stiff competition from AEK, Kalamaria, Olympiakos, PAOK and Panilikos though and pretty much all the titles have been hard fought. Really I'm only after European glory as I'm still trying to win the Champions League with a club from every possible nation on that game.

    Morton gradually getting closer, we were in the top half of the SPL split for the first time in our history in the season just gone.

    Old Firm dominance has been broken (sort of), Aberdeen beat Rangers to second place, first time that's happened in this save game. Celtic have won their 8th title in a row, or something like that.

    Struggling early in my second season, 1 point from my first 3 games and out of the League Cup. Got a decent kitty £10m now) following a couple of sales but the board will give me **** all for wages which has resulted in a couple of half-decent signings that would have seen us safe fall through. I believe on FM08 you can move your transfer funds into your wage budget, god I wish I could do it on 07.

    Struggling so far in my second season. Currently 4th with Utd. Tricky form so far but still only a couple points beind the leaders so can still make up for it. 2nd in CL group winning one and losing one. Out of the CC after going down to Everton with my fringe players in extra time.

    Finally made it to the champions league final after losing in the semis five times, however we lost on penalties after a 1-1 draw with Lazio, then finished 3rd in the league and I got sacked. So the dream is over, not sure where I'm looking next, maybe Denmark or Sweden or even Poland look interesting.

    They're not programs, they're just files you need to put in the right directories.

    here's the state of the current team of mine, excuse the weak league position, only played the first 2 games of the season, which were away to champions palermo and at home to milan. Finished last season in 4th and will soon embark on the champions league.

    True. That post was made late at night though, almost 1 am my time, on the day that the BPL title's decided.
