Congrats on safety!

Maybe share the solution and then people with the same problem can solve it too!

What games are people playing on their tablets thar are any good?

Casual, like. I can't be on 24/7 or necessarily every day of the week!

Good season there @Dan ! Is that just 15 points off the maximum for this leg?

As for our pre-season. We won zero games in total. Drew 1-1 with Crewe yesterday with Beckford scoring again. Had two trialist keepers in Kyle Letheren and Dean Lyness in pre-season. That's all the interesting stuff from our pre-season.


More of our ex players!!!

Well jee, nicely done @Viktor Bragi Brynjarsson ! I know what you mean about the Aussie League, this has not encouraged me to ever play there again and I'm still playing friendlies and cup games! Not started the season yet!

@Ross Gibson looks like you had a busy transfer window! Changed up some designated players and foreign players?

Haha @DNZY ! It is anice change to the backroom staff.

Can't buy players from other teams in the same division either! Pah!

Sounds like something @mons and the face pack making crew would know!

At a guess, you probably can. However, it'd be on a game by game basis. You'd have to open the save game in the editor and find their UIDs and assign a pre-made picture like you do for facepacks. Don't take that for gospel, though!

Three friendlies in a day for us, two for the first team. The U23s beat Curzon Ashton, and the first team beat both Girona (of La Liga) and Barnsley, all 1-0. Still plenty of players to come back, too - Smith, Hefele, Stankovic, Malone, Mooy, and Wells were all absent from both teams. Trialist Dimitri Cavaré sounds like he impressed at right-back against Barnsley - 22-year-old from Rennes. Previously a France U20 international, but missed most of the last 2 seasons through ACL injuries - possibly worth a gamble at the right price, he certainly used to be very highly rated.


Is this the new trend? We had two simultaneous friendlies today as well, away at Salford and Radcliffe Borough. We put out mixed sides, only the one member of the Trialist family who we're very fond of usually at this time of year. Won both too, 4-3 against Salford where we could not defend. Plus they had our old striker Redshaw who was bound to score against us. Much too good a player for them, he is. If they keep him fit. Thrashed the others 7-0, at least we can outclass the non League!

Struggling to keep motivated here. Transfers are always a big enjoyment but not in this one, plus 3 months of friendlies zzz

Is the stadium Anfield as you know it? You played the one with a car park visible??


Well of course not, they have certain stadium models and use them. They can't replicate every exact stadium! That's endless amounts of needless work. Probably have to pay more in licensing then too!

If you play Championship manager as Liverpool you will understand the question.


I've played against them, and they had a stadium.

Lionheart reporting for whatever this may bring. Bit worried when squad restrictions get complicated!

So is this one season or two?

And great, I love leagues where I have to do the finances for the squad too (!)

There's nothing more tedious housework wise as gardening.

A two seasons one again? Gonna be a close one to meet the deadline again! Especially as the weather where I am is much better

I'll try sort something tonight fellas for those that want it. Looks Like its a wet weekend down here anyway so won't have anything better to do over the weekend! I've got a couple smaller ideas so will piece it together and try post it later this evening.


I've just got weeding to do so please anything to distract me from that!

Is the third leg announced today? Could always use a jump start of a weekend to get into it myself! Just like we did for this one.

Right, second season done! Got to make this a quick roundup!

Transfers:

A fair bit of movement both ways. South America was my main hunting ground and didn't manage to shift all the dead wood I'd like to.

League:

http://i.imgur.com/VQRHBX2.png

Some good thumpings in there. Especially the one against Dortmund!

http://i.imgur.com/bfSAe1Y.png

Saw us win the league title! Bayern were awful at the start of the season, until they sacked Ancellotti. After that they begin their inevitable climb up the table, robbing Dortmund of second but thankfully the season finished before they could catch us!

Super Cup:

http://i.imgur.com/Ub42jAN.png

Just to highlight how bad Bayern were at the start of the second season, we beat them in the super cup! Only thing Hernandez did for us really.

German Cup:

http://i.imgur.com/tsaKDyN.png

We mastered extra time to go all the way in the cup and take it home!

Champions League:

http://i.imgur.com/8LnDa10.png

Another first knockout round knock out for us as Real Madrid just proved too powerful.

Manager of the season!

http://i.imgur.com/Ap3WUQn.png

They loved me! Unfortunately my players did not get any individual awards or recognition though. Not even Bailey or Pratto featured in the top 3! Schurlle at Dortmund took the prize this year.

Season 2 points tally:
Bundesliga - winner = 25 points
German Cup - winner = 25 points
German Super Cup - winner = 10 points
Champs League - 1st KO = 5 points
Manager of the year = 5 points
Bayern x 3 (2 league, 1 super cup) = 15 points
Koln x 2 (1 league, 1 cup) = 10 points
BMG x 2 (2 league) = 10 points

Season 2 total: 105 points

Season 1 total: 55 points

Overall total: 160 points!

I've really enjoyed this! Worried a bit about if I'd finish but just about got away with it. Really will consider visiting the German leagues in the next instalment of FM.

Good luck to those still playing!

Have to agree with you, they seem like decent signings. Bury have come a long way in my opinion.

It is enjoying for me to read regardless of your percieved level of achievement. At the end of the day, the game is for you to enjoy. If you want to start a new story elsewhere, go for it! If you want to continue with Eastleigh, then that is also your choice. I'll keep reading either way.

Whichever you choose, I would suggest organising more friendlies in a pre-season! You don't have to just play on the weekends you know I usually have a 2 to 3 day gap depending how my squad is coping. Remember, you can have 12 substiutions in a friendly and can use them all! That way you can kick off the season with an entire squad of fully fit players. Just a suggestion.

Shame it didn't work out at Titans.

Best of luck with Destroyers! Hopefully you destroy the other teams in the league and not your career!
