Thought I'd make this for those of you that simply don't have the time to create a whole career thread or like me do absolutely crap when you do make one!

I'm now into my 7th season with Arsenal and have just reached my 400th game in charge.

Feel free to post up your own saves
http://www.liveonlineradio.net/wp-content/themes/Music_Covers/images/music2.gif -------- http://rs648.pbsrc.com/albums/uu204/JeWeL1980_photos/7505xjc54lf3np.gif~c200 -------- http://www.liveonlineradio.net/wp-content/themes/Music_Covers/images/music2.gif
I'm currently in my eleventh season with Scottish side Rangers and it's still a career I'm enjoying very much - I only started the save just over two months ago which is the curse of currently being unemployed as it means I've got far too much time on my hands oh and when the weather was crap I binge played.

https://i.imgur.com/TT3nvHF.jpg

During the long career I have won:

BetFred Cup: x7 (2018/19, 2019/20, 2021/22, 2024/25, 2025/26, 2026/27, 2027/28*)
Scottish Cup: x4 (2022/23, 2023/24, 2024/25, 2026/27)
Scottish Premiership: x3 (2023/24, 2025/26, 2026/27)

You can see it took us seven seasons to finally topple Celtic to finally be crowned Scottish Premiership champions and we're currently on course for a third consecutive title but there's still nine games to be played in the current season. Europe's proven to be a burden and one I'm determined to overcome - in the 2023/24 season we reached the semi finals of the Europa League but lost to West Ham and that was after dropping out of the Champions League at the Best Placed Playoff stage.

Oh and to date I have been in charge of 598 games in all competitions and have a win percentage of 68% which I'm sure will be risen before the season's ended.

Good to see you've got Rangers back above Celtic, have you had any good regens come through? I've had a few including my now No1 keeper who was dubbed the new David Seaman (now Peter Shilton) who I'm hoping will become the clubs record appearance maker. And I've got a very good striker who is surely going to break Henry's goalscoring record in a few years time. I've put together quite a young squad tbf.

Yesterday i got knocked out of the FA Cup away at Tottenham then lost the Carabao Cup final on penalties against Man City ffs, though did make it to the quarters of the Champions League beating Dortmund 10-5 on agg. Premier League is almost as good as won i reckon too.

Also a tip for anyone managing a bigger side with a few quid, if at any time the opportunity to sign Kylian Mbappe comes up then buy him. He's probably the best player I've ever had on this game.

Not really. The only suitable one who may be able to become a first team regular is centre back Barry Geggan who I've got out on loan at the moment. I've got three others in the first team Kieran Canning (GK), Aidan Wilson (CB) and Zach Rudden (ST) but they're back-up or only called upon during an injury crisis and nothing else as they're not good enough to be regulars but still need them because of the needed home grown quota.

I've got a couple of 2* players in the U20's but I don't think they'll ever make the grade unfortunately but we'll see.
Sure I could find a way to make Mbappe garbage @VP.
@Shedender yeah, good to see you caught them up. Are they still way and above you financially?

Recently I've been playing a save in Portugal, a league I haven't spent much time in, after getting a bit bored of the 'bigger' leagues. Started with Academica who are in the second tier and won promotion first time around. Built a decent squad to keep them up but then got offered the Sporting job in November and jumped ship as my Aca side was starting to struggle with scoring goals. However, since making the change, the save has been a f*cking nightmare

Portugal is a weird league where the majority of transfers are in the 10s of thousands, then hundreds of thousands if you're Braga before jumping to the big 3 who spend more p/w on individual players than the total weekly wage budget at Academica.

Might post some SS's up later.

@Shedender yeah, good to see you caught them up. Are they still way and above you financially?

They wish mate. Celtic's currently got insecure finances and an estimated value of £21.69m while we have rich finances and an estimated value of £258m and I think that's down to the fact that I've spent a good few seasons looking and bringing in freebies before deciding to sell them on for big bucks. I'm glad I'm seemingly ahead of them now as I was getting sick of them dominating the league.

Big departures - £10m+:
Season 2019/20: Alfredo Morelos (Leipzig, £10.5m)
Season 2023/24: Lewis Morgan (Aston Villa, £10.75m)
Season 2024/25: John Souttar (West Brom, £13m) Kieran Dowell (Brentford, £13m)
Season 2025/26: Kieran Freeman (Brentford, £12m)
Season 2026/27: Luigi Campana (Atletico Madrid, £30m), Billy Gilmour (Watford, £20m), Benjamin Achenbach (Southampton, £18.25m)

You can see when the time I felt was right I let some talented players depart the club for big bucks which perhaps has hindered any chances I've had in the Champions League but it's helped the club balance massively and I could've sold Simone Lo Faso to Manchester City in January but they wouldn't match my valuation and I wouldn't have had time to find a replacement in. Quite a few players have also left between £5m and £10m but I've been able to replace them eventually.

The saddest part of this career is that Jamie Walker's retiring in the summer.

The saddest part in mine was Aaron Ramsey wanting to leave for a new challenge earlier this current season, he's now at Middlesborough. Really wanted to keep him until retirement but wasn't to be, he did get a testamonial and hopefully will be available as a coach once he's finished playing.

I get a bit attached to players like this in my saves, even more-so if I don't know who they are in real life and they perform. This save I had a guy called Marinho score the winning goal to get us promoted at the age of 36, instantly retired and so was straight into my coaching staff. He's garbage but it's nice

Impressive stuff @VP. especially against Manchester United. I think my biggest league win to date was a 7-0 success at home to Kilmarnock.

A little update about my current save, I am considering selling right winger Simone Lo Faso and have accepted a £32m bid from Monaco for him - the main reason I am thinking of letting him go is because he's now 30 years old and I don't think I'll get a better deal for him - but it all really depends on how good a replacement I can find in the transfer market. As soon as Jamie Walker announced his retirement, I agreed a deal with a left winger from Bayern who'll arrive on a free.

I don't think I'll be making much transfer dealings this summer as I'm happy with the squad.

Congrats VP I am just about to finish my 3rd season with FC Groningen. First season, finished 6th, beat AZ in this play off thingy. Second season, won the league by a point! Got knocked out in Europa League by Spartak Moscow in first knockout round 3rd season, about 10 games or so left (not got FM up) about 13 points clear of PSV. Playing Ajax in Europa League second round. Will be playing Zwolle, in Dutch Cup final. Will post up screenshot when I get FM up. Was offered Wolfsborg and Ajax interview but turned both down. Ajax are currently 12th in the table (guessing) Finances at the club are quite dire, About 17M in the bank (beforehand was 40M) Have to sell players to generate money for transfers and make money for the club unfortunately.

Got taken over in pre season as Kronke retired, sadly it just a consortium and nothing has changed. Can't wait until i can request a new stadium as as we now sell 47,000 season tickets and our average attendance is over 60,000 for the season so everything in place just have to wait 25 years after the current one has been built before the request becomes available. Which is 2031 and 7 years away...

I think Nabil Touaizi's time at the club is coming to an end as the guy just hasn't been the same since his 9 month lay off.

He's still bagging goals now and again but I don't think he's ever going to be as prolific goal scorer he was pre-injury and now Matt Watkins (a free signing from Tottenham) has scored six goals (the same amount as the aforementioned Touaizi) in just three games this season - a hat trick at home to Motherwell, a brace away to ten man Hearts and a single at home against Aberdeen. I really hope the Spaniard can recapture his pre-injury form because he was amazing.

It was supposed to be Nabil Touaizi > Cammy Henderson > Matt Watkins but now it may end up being Matt Watkins > Nabil Touaizi > Cammy Henderson.

Once again, Andrea Pinamonti had a storming season for us, sadly Inter Milan want to play him in first team next season   Heartbreaking for us, but bringing in few strikers for next season to fill the avoid.  Will be looking to offload deadwood players in the summer and promote few young players into first team.

Season 12 has been completed and it was quite a disappointing season even though we won a fourth consecutive SPFL title.

But we got dumped out of the BetFred Cup in the second round (our first hurdle) following a 2-1 defeat away to Hearts which meant we couldn't try and win that competition for a fifth consecutive campaign while our chances of a third Scottish Cup crown was ended by fierce rivals Celtic who beat us 1-0 at the quarter final stage. Our Champions League hopes ended in the First Knockout Stage, losing to Lyon.
Managed to win the league in my first half-season at Sporting after moving late in 2018.
Signed Lucas Vasquez and cleared out a load of dross for my attempt at retaining it and I would say for my assault on Europe but having been drawn again Atletico, Leverkusen and Inter I am not sure I'll be getting very far

I can't believe we have done it. It may not be the Champions League but I will take it.

We were 3-1 behind in the Europa League final against Roma before I decided a slight tactic change and it worked a treat as Rangers bagged three unanswered goals to win it.
Is season 8 I've just finished, brought in a couple of new coaches too.

Football Manager 2018 - From A Failed Footballer To A Traveling Manager - Story coming soon...
I had planned on leaving Rangers after the Europa League success over Roma but after I thought about it I realised that even though I'm dominating the league now and at times the cups, I'm still enjoying managing them and it hasn't gotten boring yet - mainly because big clubs keep trying to sign my best players, thus needing to replace them once they depart with equal or better players - e.g. Fred Klaus is more than likely heading to Manchester City for £45m.

This summer I have decided to "splash the cash" as I have a near £200m transfer budget due to saving over the seasons.

Na don't give up, I've thought similar with Arsenal but then i realise I'm not gonna manage 8 seasons anywhere else so would love to stick with this (want a new stadium) until 2019's game. You've still got the champions league to play for.

I was planning on taking the vacancy at Manchester United a few seasons back whenever they finished down in sixth as I could've attempted a clear out and try to rebuild them to title winners but alas I was unsuccessful and I stayed put at Rangers and iirc then won the league title and have done since. There was talk about potentially leaving Ibrox for a brand spanking new stadium but I haven't heard anything else since but I'm not fussed on whether we leave Ibrox or not as it's an iconic stadium imo.

https://i.imgur.com/uwN53kl.jpg

Just looking another centre back or two as three simply won't be enough over the course of the season, especially when competing in the Champions League.

Some players' morale has been slightly damaged because of me, I was supposed to place the third choice goalkeeper in the U20's squad as I don't think he'll be getting used much (if at all) this season as I accidentally placed the majority of the first team into the U20's and I had to profusely apologise.
https://i.imgur.com/FTgYo9i.jpg

Superb.

Since the last post a few hours ago I have added two more players - spending another £28.5m on two defensive minded players. Gianmarco Lucifredi cost me £9m from Marseille as another centre back option while I shelled out £19m on right back Josh Williams from Manchester City. The league season began with a 4-2 win away to Aberdeen but that doesn't tell you half the story because Aberdeen were reduced to eight men before half time.

Yeah definitely, I've also planned to have my regen keeper who came through the youth system break David O'Leary's appearance record of 722 and my regen striker break Henry's scoring total, though I think another of my players may beat him to it.
