I've actually had time to play, I'm fortunate in that regard, but for me it's more so that I evidently don't like the game as much as I did years back so FM isn't on my mind daily anymore - so I only really think about playing it when I have nothing else...

Ha! Thanks! Hoping to get through to the winter break soon. I haven't been able to properly sit down and recently… two weeks I now notice, doesn't seem that long!

That league form though… ew.The first and last draws in that run were against 9 men and 10 men respectively, too. 🙃

That's the UEFA Champions League group that we have been drawn with. Liverpool, Ajax and Mainz (4th in Bundesliga last season) make for a challenging group. Top 3 is a must, though. Elsewhere, we didn't get Hibernian - who impressively won the (unloaded)...

Thanks for sharing - sounds like a good save, until the self-imposed break! 😆 Do share if you do return/restart!

It is a nice challenge on paper, for sure. We just unfortunately came across an on fire Barça team, we kept them at arm's reach for a good portion of the campaign but they flew away as we stuttered. I am happy with UCL though, hopefully it'll be a sp...

Post 002 - 2021-22 - End of Season 1:No first league title since 2004 for Valencia, unfortunately. We gave it a great go but Barcelona just went nuts, as Xavi's team won 14 of their final 15 La Liga fixtures - including against us on the penultimate day,...

After not playing Football Manager for many, many months I finally chucked myself into a fresh save in the hope of regaining some interest in the game. I spontaneously decided on Valencia of Spain's La Liga, especially after confirming that last season ir...

After an (unintentional) extended break from FM, I decided to throw myself into a new save with La Liga side Valencia.

I've not found the time, despite wanting to, yet, but I'm planning to get back playing the game by the end of next week; so hopefully - progress depending - I'll get new posts up soon.

😆I'm intrigued to see how it goes with Rio Ave, who should (!) be a decent club to build with.  Side-note: Still very much planning on continuing this save. I've barely played the game itself across the last number of weeks, but unintentionally...

Rio Ave, of Liga Portugal 2, were under new management. José Nunes was given the task of making sure the club avoid relegation to Liga 3. Seven matches left to play and three points clear of the relegation zone, surely Mr. Nunes wouldn't suffer a third st...

As noted previously, I've flown through 2023-24 so haven't be collecting screenshots for monthly updates. Fear not, seasonal updates it shall be. In this one, and after relegation (back-to-back for me and my manager, awkwardly), it was our goal to regain...

Correction: Real did actually win promotion; I initially noticed they lost in a play-off and presumed that was that, but turns out it was a play-off between the promotion round winners to claim an outright champion so are promoted. Imma take credit for th...

Liga 3 Relegation Round, we meet again! One year on from suffering relegation with Real, could José Nunes this time avoid the drop and save Vitória Setúbal? Three friendly wins in a row. Find a better exhibition manager, I'll wait.😎 Great start,...

After January 2023's terribleness, the end of the First Stage across February and early March could only go better, right? … Right? … right? Yes, a victo… nevermind, only in a friendly against lower-league opposition. Cova de Piedade, who were a...

As shown previously, the beginning of my tenure with Vitória Setúbal couldn't have gone much worse. Did things improve across January 2023? That was the debut in charge. It actually began splendidly, as Kamo-Kamo put a goal ahead. Sadly, the team jus...

As noted before, the scheduling at fourth tier level in Portugal is very spread apart. Due to that, we entered November and December knowing we'd be playing just three competitive fixtures - in fact, we'd have more friendlies (four) to participate in. The...

October 2022 would see five matches: three league fixtures, two friendlies. We came into it off the back of a positive September, cup battering aside, as we won two out of two to start the new Campeonato de Portugal campaign. Could we extend that run?&nbs...

Indeed; Real were newly-promoted from the preceding season, after all. 2/2 wins so far is solid, but gotta build on it!

2022-23 is here. The aim is to guide Real back into Liga 3 at the first time of asking. To do that, we must do our best to finish inside the top two and then subsequently inside the top two of the next stage. Just three competitive fixtures, coupled with...

#NunesStays - Real, despite relegation, offered me a new contract, so I'll be at the helm in the club's attempt to leave the Campeonato de Portugal at the first time of asking. A new coaching course was also started. First up, pre-season: I'd 8 to be...

The season's end has arrived. Six matches to save ourselves from relegation to the Campeonato de Portugal. Could we do it? Bad start. A merited two-goal loss to Sporting CP B. To the 43%, I appreciate you!Not looking good, eh? Back-to-back defea...

February would see the ‘First Stage’ come to a conclusion in Portugal's Liga 3 with Real. We secured our place in the ‘Relegation Stage’ some time ago, meaning our aim was to try and finish above last place - which we had three fixtures to try and do so....

Just three competitive fixtures occurred in January, as we had Liga 3 encounters with Caldas, Oliveira do Hospital and Leiria - alongside two friendlies. Here's how we got on to kickstart 2022: Back-to-back wins for the first time, as we stretched ou...

Cheers!I hope so! Last time I was in the Portuguese lower leagues it went well with Pinhalnovense on Football Manager 2014, won promotion to the second tier - I could do with a Ronaldo Monteiro regen!
