I know what you're thinking, "OMG another Man Utd story, why would I be interested." Well no, I very much doubt this will be any more or less interesting that any other Man Utd save. I have strived year on year to get the "The Greatest" and "Club Legend" Steam achievements, but I never quite have the will power to get there. I really want FM19 to be the year I get these, and I'm hoping that logging my progress here will drive me to do it. So join me as I attempt to become the greatest manager of all time at Man Utd, emulating and surpassing the great Sir Alex Ferguson himself. GLORY, GLORY!

So here we go. Man Utd manager, in what will hopefully be a long and illustrious career. My aim is to buy the best players and supplement with youth development. I will tend to have a world class starting 11, with a backup 11 of prospects. This may take a few seasons, but I'm confident.
In terms of set-up, I've gone for English leagues only with a large database. I've also disabled the transfer window in the first Summer. This gives the team a chance to bed in in their current guise.

https://i.imgur.com/C8cKhSr.png
https://i.imgur.com/yH4xRll.png

So I'm going for a 4-2-3-1 formation. This really compliments the personnel I currently have, with Pogba and Matic pivoting in the middle of the park, Lukaku up top and Mata, Martial, Rashford, Sanchez and Lingard rotating in the attacking midfield role.
In terms of weakness, as Mr Mourinho is ever complaining about IRL, we are weak at the back. Bailly is decent enough, but the rest are bang-average. When the window opens in Winter, we will definitely need a new RB too.

So as we can't sign players, let's sign some staff!

Talking staff, and with the window closed, now is the time to invest in the backroom team

https://i.imgur.com/1cfm6oK.png

The club was lacking a director of football and assistant manager, god knows how Mour is coping in real life. In comes Villareal's Pablo Ortells as director and Valencia's Migel Angulo as my assistant. The other notable changes in the team was Nicky Butt out and Luiz Fernando Moraes in as Head of Youth Development. The everlasting Aurelio Pereria in for Jim Lawlor as Chief Scout. And finally Julio Tous in as Head Physio for Richie Merron.

Continuing on the squad front, it was important to make sure my best two players David de Dea and Paul Pogba were tied down to long term contracts. There's a lot of the team are on their last 12 months, but I'd rather see how they get on in the run up to the Winter window before I commit. Most notable; Juan Mata, Chris Smalling, Matteo Darmian and Ander Herrera.

Just a quick update on the contract front, Mata and Herrera have proven my need to keep the squad in place. So both given rotation contracts.
https://i.imgur.com/17Fcojr.png
https://i.imgur.com/f4qZYdt.png

Also time to pin down our two best youth prospects to the club on longer term deals. Hope to see them involved in the next few seasons.

https://i.imgur.com/axgpC1N.png

Couple more months and the window will be open, and my lovely board have given me £218m to play with. Having played for a couple of months and tweaking the formation, my need for attacking midfielders has dwindled and been replaced by a need for more conventional left and right sided midfielders.
I've noticed this year just how much it costs to get good players, no too dissimilar to real life I suppose. I fully expect to pay £100m per winger. Watch this space
Always love a Man Utd save as I support them! Need to get them back to winning ways!

Great idea to tie down Chong and Gomes to new contracts, they are the future of the club. Have a look at Mark Helm in the youth squad, he left the school I work at last year! Very very good footballer!

Thanks man. Yeah, it's good to blood the youth. Even if it's to bring their value up and move on.
Is this him?

He looks OK on FM. Maybe stick him on loan and see how he does. He's still very young though

Yeah, he might not turn out decent on FM, but I just know he was decent at school level and won a contract at United so can't be half bad. Updates on him may be nice throughout the season on my behalf

January 2019


Sniffing around the players through December worked out well. Julian Brandt came in for a good price and will slot straight into the RM slot. With one eye on Brexit, I was determined to get hold of Sancho for the left. Can't say I was thrilled to pay £93m for him though. Even so, two wingers for the next decade!
https://i.imgur.com/saWnHb7.png
https://i.imgur.com/3xSREr6.png

In terms of out's, I still haven't signed Young, Darmian and Smalling up to new contracts, but a host of MLS clubs are interested in Young, Guangzhou are in for Darmian and Chelsea are sniffing around Smalling. I'd happily let them all go.
Other team news, Andreas Pereira is whinging for a new contract...he ain't getting one. Meanwhile Fellaini is expecting to go this window after not getting into the team. Other players linked with elsewhere, Rojo looks to be going to Jiangsu and Arsenal are looking at Martial.
https://i.imgur.com/QsN6mba.png
https://i.imgur.com/AjUwXXL.png

In terms of player performance, there's been no real stars in the team. Phil Jones has been a mainstay at the back, rotating with the rest of the CB's, with Darmian making RB his own. Perhaps surprisingly, Young has filled in on the left rather well. Up top, I started out with Sanchez, who just wasn't doing much so switched to Big Rom who's been doing much better.
This averageness can be seen in the league performance, with Liverpool pulling a gap of 5 points. We're involved in all other competitions so far, so watch this space.
February 2019


And here end the Winter transfer window. As you all know, we spent big on Sancho and Brandt, blowing most of my load on the young Bundesliga pair. Which was all the more fun with Sancho getting an injury and 2 month lay off after 18 minutes of his debut, Ace.

So what else happened? Well I said before, I had a few other players with 6 months left other contracts and the only out due to this was for Chris Smalling to move to Leicester after a move to West Ham fell threw.
https://i.imgur.com/iosy5Ta.png
A move for Ashley Young to Atlanta United also fell threw, so he'll stay with me now until the end of the season. He will likely leave on a free at the end of the season. The other player with 6 months left on his contract was Matteo Darmian. The Chinese interstate's wained, so instead of losing him on a free, he signed up for another 2 years on the same low wage.
This left me with CB to replace. In comes Matthis de Ligt for a hefty £51m. I also needed a backup LB to cover for Luke Shaw following Young's move to back-up LM. With my last bit of cash, I went on another raid to Germany and HSV (Hi @SrWerGaming ) and picked up Josha Vagnoman for £14.75m, my last bit of cash.
https://i.imgur.com/sGn0flV.png
The only other notes is that Fred is throwing a wobbler for not being in the first team and Andreas Perriera earned himself a new contract after 12 assists in 6 months.

On the competition front, a 1-0 aggregate semi-final win over Liverpool has put me in the final against Spurs and hopefully my first trophy on the way to "The Greatest".
https://i.imgur.com/Cvxds6z.png
First of all, to say that the purchase of Josha Vagnoman was an excellent acquisition. It's sad to see one of my young talents leave but it's not easy to say no to a great club like Man Utd. (ahahah)

About smalling i dont like him. And for his place, you buy a best!! I love De Ligt. 19/20 years old and is just a fucki** BEST! Well Done.

About results its sad to not see you in first on the league but i think you can get the first place ! The rest of the competitions are also very good and everything is open! I hope you can win the carabao cup as it is already in the final.

May you continue like this!

Absolute scenes! Liverpool have led the charge all season, with a 5 point lead throughout. Second to last game against Liverpool and a 5-1 win, leaving them with a two point lead. We needed a win against Bournmouth and had to hope that Liverpool lost...
https://i.imgur.com/D5uIgsx.png
https://i.imgur.com/cGAyx8O.png

This really makes up for the rest of the season, which saw me as runner up to Spurs in the League Cup and a spanking to Atletico in the semis of the Champions League.
https://i.imgur.com/cGAyx8O.png

Apart from the win at the end of the season, it was a bit lacklustre on the teams part. There were no real outshining performances, with Brandt slotting straight in on right wing, Sancho could barely get in past Sanchez and Martial. I had the team, and particularly the wingers, playing deeper so changed things up after the final loss to spurs pushing them all forward. This proved to work as I chased Liverpool down.
https://i.imgur.com/Gl4LgVY.png

So what's next? Chelsea appear interested in Lukaku, who I would only sell if I could replace with a world class striker (Dybala). Young is on his way out, and Fellaini will follow as he's just serving no purpose. Valencia, Jones, Bailly and Martial all have a year left on their contracts. Martial and Bailly will likely be offered new terms but Jones will leave if there's interest, if not, a new contract. Valencia will either stay for one more year, or go and be replaced with Dalot who has been on loan at Boro.
As for the youths, another year out on loan beckons for Fosu-mensah, Tuanazebe, McTominay, Chong and Gomes.

Some awards.

Let's talk first about transfers and contract renewals. Out...
https://i.imgur.com/UrUUaOI.png
https://i.imgur.com/BapMMhe.png
https://i.imgur.com/r5JIB8L.png
A good money offer for Lingard. Having looked across other people's stories, Lingard to Arsenal or Chelsea for decent money seems to be a common theme. Yes he was one of my first choice AMC's, but luckily I have another on the way in. Fellaini went out to Newcastle after I listed him. He barely played last season and was surplus to requirements. Last out was Sergio Romero who put in a request.

And In...
https://i.imgur.com/V4jWgvU.png
A far better replacement for Lingard, Asensio is probably one of the best AMC's in the game for me. Well maybe not now, but easily within the next couple of years. At 23, he will fit in perfectly with my other young recruits.

Other ins and outs...
https://i.imgur.com/X3SIKqe.png
The notable loans that went out were Joel Pereira, Timmy Fosu-Mensah, Axel Tuanazebe, Diego Dalot, Scott McTominay, Tahiti Chong and Angel Gomes. All of these lads will either play a part in the squad for the future or move on for a bit of money. Dalot is earmarked for next season once Valencia has seen out his contract. The two young lads that came in were the young Swiss, Daprela, from Grasshoppers, 17 and plays at AMC. The Italian, Ghidini from Atalanta, 16 and plays at WBL. Both suggested by the scouting team and both well and truly for the future.

So to talk more about the squad, you can probably see that I've slimed it right down. This is to stop players complaining for lack of opportunities and just to keep a good rhythm with the playing staff. I'm beginning to have doubts over Jadon Sancho, which is very annoying considering what I paid for him. He's that much worse than Rashford and Martial that I can't seem to find a place for him. Brandt on the other hand is locked in on the right wing. Dean Henderson has had the call up from the u23s to replace Romero as no2 to De Gea (who PSG have been sniffing around).
A failed bid for Lukaku from Real Madrid means he continues as my top striker for the season. Given they wouldn't budge on £60m, they had no chance (I paid them £89m for Asensio!) I waited to see if there was any interest in the players who had low contracts (Martial, Jones and Bailly) before offering them new terms. Nobody came in for the first two, so Jones was offered a 2 year Rotation contract extension and Martial a new long term deal to rotate at LW and ST. Bailly was a strange one; a week before the transfer window closed, Barca were showing interest and he put in a transfer request because he didn't think he would get a work permit for a new contract. OK, sound. Makes sense. Transfer status changed. All I wanted was his value, £33m. And Barca wouldn't bid! So now the window has closed, he won't sign rescind his request and now I can't get him to sign a contract. It's very likely he'll leave on a free. For those that were wondering, Brexit hasn't happened yet.
https://i.imgur.com/K5hyunp.png

As for competitions, my first bit of silverware is in, beating FA Cup winners Everton in the Community Shield. They have a pretty decent squad now too, with Kasper Dolberg and Olivier Giroud swelling their striking options
https://i.imgur.com/lbF2rMa.png

The Premier League is underway, with Liverpool favourites for the league despite me being the defending champions. They may not be wrong, as I've started the season with a 3-2 loss to Leicester...

Some quick updates on the transfer and contract fronts;
Eric Bailly would not relent in his pursuit to leave the club and Barca would not stop sniffing around him. As he was about to become a free agent, or at least talk to other clubs in a months time, I had to try and make some money.
https://i.imgur.com/vOOo3uC.png
Timmy Fosu Mensah who's been on loan at Bournemouth will be recalled in January to step into the breach.

In terms of contracts, I'm always keen to keep my best players tied down to long term deals, if not to deter PSG/Real/Barca if nothing else.
https://i.imgur.com/fX6V971.png
https://i.imgur.com/DnZ4ksb.png

It's been an incredibly slow start to the league, with the team floundering in mid-table after about 8 matches. And then, something just clicked. Out of nowhere, Lukaku started banging them in for fun. Brandt was playing out of his skin and Sancho is finally starting to show his value. We're now up to third, though 6 points separate us from Chelsea.
Speaking of Lukaku, Real have not left him alone all season, so there's a very real chance they will come in for him in January. The big result that I was happy to brag about was a 7-1 mauling at Roma, with Lukaku grabbing 4.

So the end of the Winter transfer window, and not a whole lot to update on. In terms of ins, there were none. I did however manage to snafu a couple of Real Madrid players on pre-contract deals;
https://i.imgur.com/5j4a8b3.png
https://i.imgur.com/gCLxTcy.png
I tried to get the pair in early, but Real wanted £50m+ so I'll just wait. Now I did pretty much snapped up this pair just for the hell of it. A top class AMC and and functional defender that can play anywhere across the back. James will come in to replace Mata, who has been out all season with a broken leg and has 18 months left on his contract. I don't think he will come back the same player.

For outs, nothing to dramatic:
https://i.imgur.com/hhqt4td.png
CBJ went for £500k, just to make a bit of cash before he left on a free. And Bailly was pre-agreed in the Autumn.

https://i.imgur.com/DZGyVEh.png
Competition wise, we are now just a point off of the top with Chelsea still sitting pretty, but worth keeping an eye on Spurs who are snapping on my heels on the same points. But look at that next round of the UCL against Real Madrid? Balls. Wish me luck.
I fourth round exit to Arsenal was also massively crap and one of the worst moments of the season so far. To make up for it, we have a League Cup final against Liverpool in the next month, and this will be your next update!


Oh, and an update for those interested in what the Brexit rules will soon be:
