Hi; I have just started a fantasy club career with a team called Ashcote United. I would like a red and white badge that has a tree and the clubs name, somewhat similar to Nottingham Forest's crest. Any help would be much appreciated!

Good morning all, long time no see! I hope everybody is well. I see this section of the forums is floundering, a pity given how active it once was. Hopefully bumping an old thread might help. I'm in the throws of what promises to be an eventful f...

A warm welcome to all! It has been some time since I last created a career thread, mostly as I have struggle for time to play FM, what with family commitments and full time. However I am now six years into my current save which I am enjoying immensely and...

Dean Smith has been appointed, Good choice i think. I was always a fan of his when I used to go to Walsall games. Did well at Brentford too.

Strange to think Gareth Barry will become the all time Premiership appearance record holder today. I still remember watching him under John Gregory at the Villa when he had spots and a dodgy curtains haircut around 98/99. When he was a left back.

Yeah, huge respect for Defoe for the way he's supported the poor boy over the last six months or so. Horrible for anybody to suffer through cancer but a six year old is just even more tragic, I honestly don't know how I'd cope if my two...

Congratulations Newcastle. I have a feeling we will settle for a draw or deliberately roll over and die against Blackburn on Saturday so that Birmingham drop into the relegation zone. (Assuming that they lose to Huddersfield as expected)

July/August 2016 I am reasonably happy with my squad and am reluctant to make too many changes without having had six months or so to assess everybody properly, so there is only one new addition to the team this summer; Segio joins us on a season long...

The old line 'Always the bridesmaid, Never the bride' has been banded about a lot down the years, however it certainly seems apt in the case of poor old RCD Espanyol; They hold the unhappy record of having played the most seasons in the Spanis...

Good luck with Torquay mate. Not a club I know much about to be honest but I had a few good holidays down there when I was young so I'll be rooting for you.
