Creating a new team in England, bringing them to the top of the English pyramid and going head to head with the biggest cities across the world.

Can't believe the success @VP. is having with London City this season.

In all seriousness though @Dan you've done remarkably well with this club especially in the Premier League as I was also certain you would've been a yo-yo club at least for the first few seasons but you've proven me wrong (as seemingly always) and this could be your season to conquer the Premier League. KIU.
His tactic has worked wonders thats for sure @Shedender. I think we've proved everyone wrong by the success we've had the last few seasons especially.
London City FC - November 2036


Into November we go, still sitting in all three competitions we started the season in as well as scooping the Community Shield of course, lets not forget that. Our league form had been incredible so far this season, perfect you could say with nine wins from nine matches in the league, we had also won our last nine games on the bounce in all competitions. Could we extend this further into November...


Six more matches, we've finally lost in the league and PSG have done the double over us in the group stage, but we picked up four wins away from the two defeats. We welcomed Derby to start the month and beat them two one, coming back from one down with two second half goals, Arregui and Landzaat securing the come back. Back to European football we welcomed Red Bull Salzburg and it was another dominant win with a three one victory. Hopewell, Mazurek and Andrews all on the scoresheet for us. A trip to White Hart Lane, across London saw us lose for the first time in the league with the fellow Londeners beating us two one, Guest with our goal. We beat Wolves one nil through Nattermann at home before taking a trip to France. We lost two nil against PSG as they secure the double over us this year in the group stage. Ending the month with a much better performance, beating Man United three two as Briere netted after five minutes to get us off to a flyer. Our other two goals came from our summer signing Keith Andrews.


Still top of the league and now with a single league defeat to our tally following Spurs turning up the heat on us. We're eight points clear of our fellow Londeners though as we continue to lead the way 'comfortably' to date. Man United lose ground and slip to fifth as Arsenal jump up to fourth. Man City remain in third to date this season.


Qualification hangs in the balance of the final group game. PSG are through and top the group without even needing to play their final game with five wins from five. We currently occupy second and as long as we dont lose by more than one goal at home against Italian giants Juventus we will go through. Anything more then we'll head to the Europa League.

Next Update: London City FC - December 2036
London City FC - December 2036


The final month of 2036 is here and with no England football to round up on after this month it'l speed us up into the New Year and onto the remainder of the season. We are in superb form so far in all competitions and are on the verge of Champions league qualification again if we can avoid more than a one goal defeat against Italian giants Juventus, if not we were heading to the Europa League. Lets see what happened as we faced seven games in three competitions.


Almost an unbeaten month, just Chelsea held us and got points from us towards the end of the month. We traveled to Watford in the EFL Cup Quarter Final and beat them, netting five past them for the second time this season winning five two. Goals from Guest, Bird and Briere netting a hatrick helped secure the big win. We welcomed Liverpool and blew a three goal lead which we built up in thirty two minutes from Dunn and Briere double, but slipped to a single point. There was no complacency in the Champions League final group game, beating Juventus five one!! Andrews netted a hatrick in twenty eight minutes for us whilst Guest and Nowocien were all on target too. Back to league action we went to a wet and windy Stoke and narrowly beat them four three, another hatrick came, this time for Guest after Dun had opened the scoring. We hit five for a third time in December when we beat Huddersfield five one. Nattermann, Guest, Arregui, Bernier and Bertolotti netting for us. Chelsea came from behind twice after Andrews put us ahead each time and saw for London City FC player Joey Torres net the winner. We ended the month with a three one home win against Brentford.


End of the calendar year, top of the league, seven points clear, a game in hand, still in the EFL Cup and Champions League. Things are looking just grand for us here at London City FC once again and we could be moving in to our first ever Premier League title it'd seem. Its currently Tottenham who occupy second place and seven points behind us despite playing a game more. Manchester City in fourth could reduce the gap though if they win their games in hand.


PSG don't quite get the perfect Champions League group as they are held against Red Bull Salzburg in the final group game to drop two points. Our more than comprehensive win against Juventus at home, to see us complete the double over them saw us qualify in second place with twelve points. Juventus head into the Europa League.


Perhaps finishing third would of been better and heading to the Europa League Knockout Rounds instead! To be the best you need to beat the best or at least get an easy run through the competition. We will face Barcelona in the First Knockout Round of the Champions League and the first leg will be in London, With us traveling to Spain for the all important second leg.

Next Update: London City FC - January 2037
Great to see it working for you @Dan , you've clearly got the right players for it and you've been using it for a while and the familiarity is high (i'd imagine) its really got the team firing.

Have only used it myself with Arsenal which is when i managed the 69 league games unbeaten, into season 6 now and have massively changed the team with it mostly full of players that were in the u23s/18s at the start of the game. This is made the side considerably weaker so struggling a little but i simply refuse to spend large amounts on players now. Squad at the end of season 5 is below but have since sold Coquelin, Iwobi, Bazoer, Bielik, Nwakali & Nketiah and signed no one to replace them (sorry to take over your thread)

It certainly has been working with the players we've got @VP. and thank you for letting me trial it. Sounds like you've done well, I want to bring through youth players soon and that'll help us reduce the wage bill heavily.
London City FC - January 2037


Into yet another New year and still enjoying the save and the journey we've gone through with London City FC. Come the end of 2036 it looked set to be our year with us leading the table by seven points and having a game in hand over the chasing pack, bar City. It would be a very busy month seeing us face ten matches across the league, FA Cup and the EFL Cup once again, could we continue our run in all competitions...


Burkhard was the only transfer of the window, he leaves to join Swansea for an initial nine point two five million pounds which can rise to thirteen million with add ons. We initially signed him back in 2033 for seven and a half million pounds from Wolfsburg. A profitably deal again.


Ten matches, six wins along with three draws and one defeat across what can only be described as a very, very busy month! It started at home with a goalless draw against Arsenal before we welcomed Preston in the FA Cup Third Round, three second half goals saw us ease through with Briere, Fofana and Sen netting for us. Manchester City beat us three two after going three nil up we tried to come back with Hope and Sen netting. A fourth home game of the week saw us welcome and beat Leicester two one. Guest and Dunn putting us ahead twice and finally we held on. The EFL Cup Semi Final first leg saw us ease past Chelsea, one nil away from home. We recorded a third straight win when we went to Everton and won three one. Bertolotti, Guest and Tagoe on target for us. We then drew nil nil with Europe chasing Reading. We bounced back to beat Nottingham Forest four two, braces from Arregui and Guest before welcoming Chelsea in the EFL Cup Semi Final Second Leg and grabbing a late draw to stop extra time as Landzaat netted in the final minute. We'll face Manchester City in the Final. The month was rounded off with our seventh game unbeaten in a row, beating League Two side Leyton Orient five nil. Hoppe, Guest, an own goal, Bird and Arregui on target for us in the convincing win.


And so for the first time this season, we've been knocked off our perch as Manchester City play their catch up games and jump up. They now lead the way but only on goal difference. We've then both got a game in hand over the chasing pack and a six point gap. Tottenham currently occupy fourth with Reading fifth. Arsenal and Chelsea sit sixth and seventh whilst Liverpool are struggling in thirteenth.

Next Update: London City FC - February 2037
London City FC - February 2037


After blowing our lead at the top of the pile it was now time to turn our attention back to trying to steal that top spot in the league. We had a much quieter month this time around, January saw us play ten matches whilst in February we faced just five matches but still across three different competitions as the Champions League came back into town.


We had this pop up after our first or second game of February and it has caused us all sorts of issues. This means seventeen year old John Parsons will be our shot stopped for the foreseeable future until one of these are back. His first game in goal, Barcelona!


Just the one defeat again throughout February and annoyingly it came against a side like Watford. It started much brighter as we beat Southampton away from home five one. Landzaat, Bird and Dunn netting whilst Andrews hit a brace in three minutes in the final ten minutes of the game. We hit five for a second game running when we beat Middlesbrough at home. Briere, Nieto and Guest all scored first half goals whilst Landzaat netted late on. We welcomed Barcelona in the Champions League First Knockout Round and grabbed a draw, coming back from behind when Briere netted in the second half. Back to FA Cup action we welcomed Championship side Brighton in the Fifth Round and won four nil, another two for Briere whilst Fofana and Dunn also were on target. Ending the month with the woeful performance against Watford.


The title is now fully in Manchester Citys hands now as they are top, level on points with us i second but have a game in hand where they can move three points clear of us now. United are eight points behind us in third place whilst Spurs are in the fourth and final Champions League spot at the end of February.

Next Update: London City FC - March 2037
keep on fighting till the end Dan, we believe in you
That young shot stopper looks pretty woeful stats wise. How long until either your first choice or back-up is back?
Thanks Andrew

He certainly isn't the best @Shedender but we're at a crises at the moment! I think Grabovac is back near the end of March which is a relief.
London City FC - March 2037


We went into March with three months of competitive football to play and still in with a shot of taking home all five trophies on offer to us this season. Way back at the start of the year we lifted the Community Shield over Manchester City in a penalty shootout. We now face them in the EFL Cup Final this month whilst also facing FA Cup, Champions League and Premier League action this month. Six matches awaited us in all, along with another youth intake, surely it was time to get that star...


No, no no no no. I think at the end of the season I'm going to have a staff overhaul and clear out anyone I feel no longer cuts it here and bring in people with the stats to back up there work, it may help.


Back to back EFL Cup titles! We waited twenty years for our first ever EFL Cup title and now have scooped two in a row as we defend our crown against Manchester City. It was in fact a very even game which probably could of gone either way, had Man City kept all their players on the pitch. Mancabou put Man City ahead after fifteen minutes, only for Dunn to level things two minutes later. Just before the half hour mark it was the Manchester club ahead again and it was Mancabour again. But, we didn't stop fighting, Andrews leveled things for us five minutes before half time and then Soto saw red for the team in light blue, giving us the advantage. And it took a while, but we finally broke through the defensive wall when Dunn hit his second of the night, and the winner, ten minutes from time.


That EFL Cup victory kicked off the month in the fashion we needed it to and saw us muster up five wins in a row from our six matches in March including a famous victory in Barcelona. But first we had Premier League action, welcoming West Ham and beating them Four two. It seems Keith Andrews is a man of goals as of late, a hatrick for himself and a goal for Fofana saw us ease past the London rivals. A trip to Spain was rewarded with a spot in the Champions League Quarter Finals as we beat Barcelona! A narrow win saw us come from behind twice with Guest then Andrews leveling before Landzaat secured the win and our spot in the next round. Back home we welcomed Tottenham just three days later in the FA Cup Sixth Round and kept our hopes of wrapping up every trophy alive when Sen netted the only goal of the game in the sixth minute. Reading await us in the Semi Finals. Our only real away trip this month, bar the EFL Cup Final, saw us travel to struggling Derby and put more pressure on them, running away with a six two victory. Briere hit a brace whilst that man Keith Andrews struck four! The month ended with a second meeting with Tottenham this month and this time they reversed the scoreline, beating us one nil.


And despite that late defeat against Spurs, we've taken back control of the league this season and its all in our hands again. But only just, with two months remaining and eight matches, Manchester City are hot on our heels, trailing us by just four goals as it stands. Manchester United have closed things up too now with them just five points off the two of us at the top of the pile. Arsenal and Chelsea look set to miss out on Champions League football again whilst Reading look set for a Europa League spot. I think the top four are confirmed almost, just depending what order now.


Not again! We may have already beat Manchester City in both the Community Shield and the EFL Cup this season but it has perhaps been down to luck, winning it on a penalty shootout and the fact they had a man sent off in the latter one. Manchester City have knocked us out of Europe both seasons we've been in it so far, beating us in the Europa League Final two seasons ago and then the Champions League Semi Final last year. Time for revenge? Or time to be sent out and packing again? The Second leg is at home infront our loyal supporters.

Next Update: London City FC - April 2037
London City FC - April 2037


We head into April, the penultimate month of the year with us sitting in all competitions remaining still, we're top of the Premier League, in the FA Cup Semi Final and in the Champions League Quarter Finals where we'll face Reading and Manchester City respectively. Those games are played in April, all together we face seven matches throughout the month and our main aim is keeping our sights set on that league title, its a close, tight run in though.


Again its not a bad month really, with five wins and two defeats throughout the month and progression in both cup competitions some how. The month started with a comfortable two nil win over Wolves with goals from Fofana and Guest in the Second half securing the points. As we welcomed Manchester Unite we slipped to a three nil defeat in the league before losing two nil against the other side of Manchester, City, losing two nil away from home in the Champions League Quarter Final First Leg. Back to League action we traveled to Anfield and beat Liverpool three one, as Dunn, Landzaar and Arregui all netted for us. And this boosted us for the Second Leg of the Champions League Quarter Final as we beat Manchester City four nil to turn the tie. Guest, Landzaat, Bird and Arregui all on target as we ran riot in this win. We recorded back to back four nil wins as well when we went to Wembley and beat Reading in the FA Cup Semi Finals. Guest netted for a second game running, Hoppe and Bernier were also on target whilst Arregui netted for a third game in a row. And Guest went on to make it three goals in three games as we welcomed Stoke to end the month and win two one, Landzaat netting the winner twelve minutes from time.


Another month passes and we're still top of the league but now opening up a gap as we close in to the end of the season. Thirty four games played and we're top by a point, but also got a game in hand so could move four points clear now. Spurs look set to secure the fourth and final Champions League spot however Reading aren't backing down just yet sitting in fifth. Liverpool could miss out on a top ten finish again this year as they're really going backwards.


From one English club to another, from one Manchester club to another. After knocking Manchester City out the Champions League in the Quarter Final, we'll now face Manchester United in the Semi Final. It'll be a tough tie thats for sure, even more so with the first leg being at home instead of being able to rely on it in the second leg.


We're set for another head to head with Manchester City again this season as well. We will meet them for the seventh time this season when we play the final game of the season in the FA Cup Final against the blue side of Manchester. We've definitely narrowed things up with our head to head record with them so its sure to be a tight affair as we try and defend another title.

Next Update: London City FC - May 2037
London City FC - May 2037


Here we go then, season twenty one is coming to an end with our final month right here. And going into May we were still on to scoop all five trophies this season if we could hold our nerve in May. Having already scooped the Community Shield and the EFL Cup, both victories against Manchester City, we move on now to the league title with four league games remaining, the FA Cup Final, again against Manchester City whilst we had a double header against the red side of Manchester, United, in the Champions League Semi Final this month, it was all going on...


Capitulated! I don't know what happened, the final month saw us win just one of our six matches that you can see the results go and that was away at Manchester City where we started the month. Arregui had given us the lead before the host leveled. We went on to win the game in the final few minutes though as Landzaat netted the winner. We welcomed Manchester United and lost one nil in the Semi Final first leg. Brentford then beat us two one away from home. We trailed two nil before Fofana gave us a bit of hope which was short lived. Back to Champions League action, we took the trip to Manchester United already trailing one nil, and there was no Final for us again this year. They beat us three nil here and four nil on aggregate. Our form didn't really improve either as we faced two final Premier League games and failed to win, stretching the run to five without a win as we drew one all at home against Chelsea and then one all away at Huddersfield.


Despite our poor form in the final month we have done it! We have finally won the Premier League! Its taken twenty one seasons but we are CHAMPIONS OF ENGLAND! We won the league by two points in the end with Champions League finalist Manchester United finishing second. The blue side of Manchester finished in third a further three points behind before a gap really opened up to Spurs in fourth seven more points. Chelsea, Reading and West Ham all head to Europa League football net season. Everton won the Europa League this year so I think they are also in the Champions League next season.


Thats how you wrap the season up, a dominant showing over Manchester City in the FA Cup Final saw Nigel Guest net a brace in a two one victory to secure back to back FA Cup titles and our third in four years I believe. We're really moving forward as a club now and this victory shows it.

Next Update: London City FC - End Of Season Round Up 2036/2037
Impressive achievement in winning the league, think maybe the players struggled with so many big games and the pressure got to them towards the end though you was lucky Utd were not much better. Think Arsenal/Liverpool every season in real life basically.

Thanks @VP. for letting me use the tactic, I can feel its helped us get here. We've played so many games this season we were bound to hit a rough patch near the end, just glad we got across the line.
London City FC - End Of Season Round Up 2036/2037


Once again, a quick recap of the season that has now past, season twenty one and we have finally scooped that Premier League title. I believe it is our sixth season in the Premier League and it means we have officially gone from the bottom playable tier to the top of the English leagues in twenty one seasons, every year finishing at least one place higher than the year before, what a stat that is. And so onto the round up, competitions, players and financial.


Victorious London City celebrate famous quadruple, the headline that most of the papers went with following our FA Cup success come the end of the season. It was definitely one to look back upon definitely. From the start we scooped the Community Shield in a head to head against Manchester City and that set the tone domestically for the season, beating them in the EFL Cup Final and the FA Cup Final as well. It was the other Manchester club, Man United, that knocked us out the Champions League in the Semi Final, they went on to win the competition too


All the player stats from another league season shown above. Three goalkeepers all who played this season following injuries to Grabovac and Wall saw us call up seventeen year old Parsons who made eight starts in the end. A fair few of our defenders scored three goals this year, there isn't one that scored more. Summer signing Landzaat had a very good season, playing the most games this year by nine games as he made sixty starts and one sub appearance, scoring fourteen and assisting eighteen, he was definitely a good purchase. Dunn, Briere and Andrews all had very good seasons in attacking roles too as we struggled to fit Hopewell in for his position. Youngsters Burton and Tagoe made a few appearances, the latter made twenty three sub appearances whilst Guest had another very good season at the front. The only player not to make a start this year was Webb who made four sub appearances.


Money, money, money! We were gifted almost forty million pounds for our Premier League finish and another thirteen million pounds or so for our Champions League run, plus Five million pounds per round we progressed I think so it has helped. This sees us now sitting on a bank balance of eighty nine million pounds. I've been given sixty two million of that for transfers this summer and we have two hundred and seventy five thousand pounds spare in the wages at this moment in time.


And finally the free spending board are going to continue that way, spending more money on upgrades to the club. The stadium is going to be expanded again but this time by just eight hundred and ninety five seats which will take us to a full capacity of twenty nine thousand eight hundred seats which I think is the maximum we are allowed to go if I remember correctly from when it was originally built. The youth facilities are also going up again of course, but we are unable to even ask for the training facilities to go up for some strange reason.

I'm now going to take a bit of time over the summer getting rid of the backroom staff and bringing in all new faces to try and get the best staff and coaches, some of these have been with us since day one or seasons five etc.

Keeps getting better and better. Terrific work @Dan! Unlucky in the UCL, almost got the holy treble of trophies. I guess you had to settle for a measly quadruple instead.

Thanks @Prometheuss its just getting better and better and making it more of a common thing now a days.
London City FC - Pre Season Round Up 2037


From an end of season round up to a pre season round up as the summer comes and goes following us scooping four trophies last year, missing out on the Champions League trophy only. Maybe this year we could seal our first ever European trophy. However our main aim is to try and retain as many trophies as possible, especially the league title as we try and make our mark at the top of the English game last now.


Another eight places risen in the European clubs leaderboard sees us move from twenty ninth up to twenty first as we start to grow as a club in the world now. You can see we're ahead of the likes of Dortmund, Schalke and Bilbao, whilst just trailing the likes of West Ham and Juventus.


The rich list was a big surprise for us this year, I was surprised thats for sure, not sure where the money has come from but we've moved from fifteenth to sixth in the worlds club richlist. We only sit behind Man United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs and Real Madrid now as we've jumped the likes of Barcelona,PSG and Manchester City, we really are growing now.


A busy window where once again I mainly looked towards younger, English faces to build the squad for the future and for England rather than just focusing on the best players in the world. We bought in seven new faces all on permanent deals and spending fifty nine million pounds. Two free transfers as we raided players who were released in the summer. Spurs took out of favor Cliff Webb off our hands, valued at twelve million we got sixteen and a half million for him. Its good to see the club is now a side who loan players out too, with a few going to our parent clubs.


Here are all our new faces from the busy summer as always. The only players who are likely to play for us on a regular basis this season are centre back Espino who joined cheaply from Man City, potentially Akoli and former BMG attacking midfielder Wottrich. The rest of the faces will be attempted to go out on loan for the season to get first team action. Failing that they could feature in some of the easier cup matches for the season.


The main squad without some of the new, younger projects at the club, we're really looking like a team capable of winning multiple trophies now and we did just that last year and thats the aim again this year. Both our goalkeepers are top quality and will be used in a rotational system this year to keep them happy and progressing. And we're just as strong all over the pitch now.


The summer was very productive and definitely forward moving for us as we played seven friendlies, won six of those and drew just the one, that was the opening match of the summer. The only real challenging game we faced over the summer was Zenit who we dispatched three nil. Anyway at the end of the summer, we move into the Community Shield, our third appearance in the last four years.


This was a really special victory, we scooped our third Community Shield title in four years as we eased past Manchester United, four three in the seven goal thriller. The game was very even especially the attacking match stats. Guest started his season with a bang, putting us ahead twice in the first half with Rigby netting the equaliser for United. Sen then nodded home a corner to put us three one up at half time. Second half United came back, hart netted to make it three two before Akoli come off the bench to score and seal the win with eight minutes to go. United didn't give up, Doyle netted with four to go but we held on.

Next Update: London City FC - August 2037
magnificent season and finally premier league champions, congrats, united really must of capitulated in the last 4 games. still missing the holy grail of the champions league, hopefully that will come next season
What a brilliant season from your team, now the only thing missing from the cabinet is a UEFA Champions League title.
Holy moly the domestic clean sweep. Excellent achievement.

Thanks again Andrew, United had a horror run in like we did in the end last season

Thanks @Matthew C I'm hoping it wont be long till we add a European title to the cabinet.

It was a brilliant year @Number 1
London City FC - August 2037


The first month of season twenty two is now completed as we have moved out the blocks. Obviously we had started it last update as we took a third Community Shield trophy in four seasons. We've now featured in three finals and won all three, starting to make that competition our own now. Four Premier League games awaited us in August to kick start the new season with a couple of tricky ties.


Following the win in the Community Shield over Manchester United, we faced four Premier League games and picked up three wins and a draw, annoyingly dropping points against Burnley. A home game to start the new season saw us welcome Arsenal and win three two. Arregui has got his season underway with a brace whilst Landzaat has scored his first of the season coming against his former side. We then faced two trips, first to QPR who we beat two one with guest giving us the lead before the host leveled, Briere then fired us to victory eleven minutes from time. Burnley then held us to a one all draw, Guest netting our only goal in the one all draw. Finally ending the month with a two nil win over Fulham at home, Sen and Guest netting inside sixteen minutes.


As always, the Premier League table is a little pointless at this stage of the season but as you can see its a strong start for Manchester City who win all four of their opening games. Chelsea join us with ten points from a possible twelve with us in third behind them on goal difference. Manchester United are also unbeaten as are ninth place Brentford at this early stage.


For once a Champions League group that I don't feel worried about! We face Spanish First Division side Villarreal, Croatian First Division side Dinamo and Belgian Pro League A side Club Brugge. For once I'm fully expecting us to not only qualify from this group, but top it with ease with any luck. We've qualified with ease the last two years when we've faced the likes of PSG, Juventus and Bayern. So should be okay here. And the Final is played at our former ground Wembley.

Next Update: London City FC - September 2037
It's a shame Burnley had to wreck what should've been a perfect opening month. Good start nonetheless @Dan.
Thanks @Shedender it was a shame but thats how it is.
London City FC - September 2037


We have started the season strongly yet again as we try to defend our first ever Premier League crown and secure it for a second season running. However we were held by Burnley last month to stop us making the perfect start to the season. This month would see our EFL Cup defence start as well as begin our Champions League group stage for the third year running, aiming to bypass our best ever Semi Final appearance the last two years. Three Premier League games await us as well


Another 'near perfect' month as we slip up to one draw again but maintain our unbeaten start to the league season with five more wins. A trip to Reading first saw us race into a two goal lead saw Arregui and Guest score in twelve minutes for us, we conceded one but held on strong. We then took a trip to Croatia where we beat Dinamo five two as all five goals for us came in the second half. An own goal and then one each for Arregui, Guest, Briere and Akoli secured a winning start to our Champions League season. A second game running where we scored five as we returned home from Croatia to beat Brentford five nil Briere, Guest (x2), Arregui and an own goal secured the big victory over them. We then welcomed Huddersfield in the EFL Cup Third Round, two second half goals from Guest then Landzaat put us easily in the Fourth Round. A trip to Southampton saw us draw one all following Guest early strike. We ended the month with Spanish side Vallarreal coming to us, we made it two wins from two in the Champions Leaue with Bernier and Akoli netting.


Top of the league after seven matches with Manchester United matching us stride for stride at this stage of the season. Manchester City are only a further point behind us too as it seems set to be another long season fight with both halves of Manchester. Arsenal and Liverpool are both struggling to get going again this season whilst Everton are struggling in the relegation zone early on.

London City FC - October 2037


Into October as I celebrate my forty sixth birthday now we had another busy month to compete with. Premier League, EFL Cup and Champions League football awaited us again this month. Its becoming a common thing for us to feature in these three competitions regularly now and I'm fully enjoying it as well. Its nice trying to be competitive not only in the league but in Europe as well.


Another unbeaten month, thats three in a row now as we are really setting a tone for the season shame we can't turn some of the draws into wins but we'll keep battling away. We beat West Ham at the start of October as a late birthday present as Hoppe netting the only goal of the game. A trip to Leicester saw us grab a late draw as Guest netted nine minutes form time to make it one a piece. A trip to Belgium saw us draw two all with Club Brugge, another two points dropped with Arregui and Guest netting for us. Three wins following though, first at home against Everton, four one as Akoi struck a brace with Arregui and Bird also on target. It required Extra Time but we are in the EFL Cup Quarter Finals as we beat Derby two one. Bird gave us the lead before the away side leveled. They went down to ten men however it still took an Arregui extra time goal to see us through. We end the month with a rout against Tottenham, winning the eight goal thriller five three, Guest, Bernier and Akoli on target in the first half for us, Wottrich with his first ever Premier League goal and Nieto both netted in the second half.


Eleven games played in the league this season and we're top by just two points still as not only us, but Manchester United also remain unbeaten at this stage of the season. It then opens up a further three point gap to third place Manchester City and a further point to Chelsea in fourth. We did Manchester United to begin to drop points soon.


Three games played, two games won and one drawn as we're also unbeaten in the Champions League to date as well. Villarreal are a point behind us and Club Brugge only a further two points behind them as its tight at this stage. I'm still expecting us to qualify from this group and in the top spot this season.

Next Update: London City FC - November 2037
London City FC - November 2037


We head into November, still unbeaten having played twenty this season and not losing any of those. We now move into another month which could finally see us toppled as we will face a hard game against Chelsea in the league this month. Six matches awaited us again this month and we would face it off in two different competitions once again with more European Champions League action and Premier League action awaiting again this month.


Make that unbeaten in twenty five this season! Yes thats right, we've gone a fourth month unbeaten this season and we seem almost unstoppable this year drawing just the one game again this month. We welcomed Belgian side Club Brugge and grabbed an easy three nil win, a double for Bird and a late one for Dunn wrapping up the win. It was the same scoreline against Watford at home, Arregui with a brace and Guest converting a spot kick. A trip to Huddersfield in our only away game in November saw us beat Huddersfield two one, coming back from behind with Tagoe and Bernier netting. Our fifth of six Champions League group games this season saw us welcome Dinamo and beat them three nil, a brace for Guest and a late goal for Akoli securing our third three nil win this month. Ending the season with a two all draw against Chelsea, taking the lead twice and blowing it twice.


We just can't shift Manchester United, they're on us like a bad smell, level on points with us but we do have a game in hand and are able to now move three points clear if we win it. They have finally tasted defeat, unlike us who are still pressing on for the unbeaten season however we have only played fourteen games so far this season. A long way to go but we keep on battling.


We're qualified and safe in the next round, now its a fight for the top spot between us and Villarreal in the final group game.

Next Update: London City FC - December 2037
Surreal season thus far @Dan, keep it up and yer'll be back-to-back champions in no time.
Easy Champions League group.Good luck for the next games in the tournament.
Good job. Are you gonna do soon a save with Chard Town(Western League Div 1)?

I know Chard is your hometown, that is the reason I have done this proposal
It would be some season to scoop a second Premier League title @Shedender

It sure was easy compared to the last couple of seasons @Prometheuss

Unfortunately I don't have any plans for that @ade04 as it takes too long in those lesser leagues.
London City FC - December 2037


We're still unbeaten in every single competition this season as we head into the wintery month of December. The month of festivities however there will be no relaxing for us, we'll continue to hunt for the unbeaten season in the Premier League and if possible, every competition going however we knew that'd be tough. Its fair to say December was a busy one, with eight games across four different competitions as we'd continue our EFL Cup and Champions League progress going as well as the Premier League matches. But for some strange reason the FA Cup Third Round would start in December this year.


EFL Cup progression, FA Cup progression and another win in the Champions League, unbeaten at the end of the calendar year for this 2036/307 season to date its unbelievable. Come the end of the month we're unbeaten in thirty three matches across all competitions. The month started with the EFL Cup Quarter Final where we beat Fulham two one, our goals coming from Bertolotti and Guest late on. Moving to league action we traveled to Manchester City and beat them two one through Arregui and Akoli. Over to Spain to beat Villarreal in our final Champions League group game, winning two one again, this time Guest and Akoli netting. We returned to England for two more away games on the bounce, beating Wolves three two and then Arsenal two one. Bernier, Arregui and Sen on target against Wolves whilst Guest hit a brace against Arsenal. Finally back at home we welcomed Manchester United and drew two all, fair result. Guest put us ahead before we trailed two one at the break. Arregui secured a point for us. We beat Liverpool at Anfield one nil and saved a penalty. Ending the month with that FA Cup Third Round tie against Crewe who we beat four two Bird, Sen and Akoli in the first half with Hopewell netting in the second forty five.


We've finally got the break away we've been seeking. We sit eight points clear at the top of the table and now have breathing space over Manchester City in second. Chelsea sit a further three points behind and have played two more matches whilst Manchester United in fourth have three games in hand on us and could move second whilst closing the gap to us to just three points again if they win all three of them.


We were already through our Champions League group before even facing Villarreal in Spain for the final group game. But we do qualify, unbeaten with sixteen points from a possible eighteen and taking the top spot which could be massive in the group draw. Villarreal qualify in second as expected whilst Club Brugge head into the Europa League knockout Rounds.


Gulp! Thats a tough draw for us but I'm not overly worried. We faced Bayern Munich before, twice in the group stage a couple seasons ago and we didn't lose to them, I believe we won both ties against them in fact so I'm hopeful we can progress again. As you can see on the left, all five English teams are still in the Champions League as well, could we see an all English Champions League? Could we beat the past two seasons and reach the Final instead of Semis?

Next Update: London City FC - January 2038
Personally i'd go for the unbeaten season in the league now (its also a Steam achievement)

Thats the aim @VP. hopefully do your tactic proud with another unbeaten league season.
London City FC - January 2038


Happy New Year, happy 2038! We're still powering through the seasons, perhaps at a slightly lesser rate than originally but we're still plugging away with this save. We've gone into January on a long unbeaten run and aim to come out the otherside still going. We did have a massive nine game month with Premier League, EFL Cup and FA Cup action as we seeked to continue advancing in all competitions, a quiet transfer window passed too.


This is our only transfer that happened throughout the summer. Paul Hopewell joined us two seasons ago from Southampton for just ten million pounds. He was naturally a winger but with VPs tactic not playing attacking wingers I tried to convert him into a CAM role, annoyingly it didn't pay off. I still managed to make a good profit on him though, selling for an initial thirty two and a half million pounds with another seven and a half million in add ons.


The unbeaten run continues, forty two matches unbeaten now in all competitions whilst also mounting an eleven game straight winning run needing just one more win to set another new club record. We started the season on New Years day beating QPR at home with goals from Akoli, Hopewell, Wottrich and Sen. Back to back home games and clean sheets as we beat Middlesbrough three nil, Guest, Fofana and Andrews netting this time around. As we welcomed Burnley we hit our fourth win on the bounce with a narrow three two win. Hope, Akoli and Bernier netting as we were three up in the first half. The EFL Cup Semi Final saw us beat West Ham three one in the First Leg before we welcomed Reading and won four nil. The goals and wins just kepy coming as well. Two away games saw us beat Fulham three nil and then Brentford two one. The EFL Cup Semi Final Second Leg saw us welcome West Ham to secure our spot in a third EFL Cup Final in a row, winning four two as Akoli netted a brace, Guest had one and an own goal. Ending the month with a comfortable win over Bristol Rovers in the FA Cup Fourth Round, Nieto, Burton and Akoli netting with a slightly rotated side.


The gap is now finally beginning to open and we're moving clear now. We're ten points clear of Manchester United in second place they do have a game in hand but even if they win it we'll still be seven points clear which is looking good again this year for us. Manchester City and eighteen points behind us in third so I'm confident of a top two finish this year.


Confirmation of our forty two game unbeaten run. And as I stated, we're also on an eleven game winning run.
