That's one tight title race mate, congratulations! 

It was too tight really, my late season form fell away and I nearly blew it. Onto the next one.

Season 4 - Dunfermline

So after safely dispatching Leeds back to the big time I was on the hunt for another challenge, another league too if possible. So an interesting offer came fro further up north. So we head to home of "The Pars" where Fergie and David Moyes have graced East End Park.

Transfers Out

Just the youth and wide players to raise to cash for the rebuild.

Transfers In

Not much spent but some good finds here. Wilson was key to keep the defence in check and Obafemi on a free was a great piece of business. Also Zindane Jr ripped it up after joining in January.

What a season from the pars! Just one defeat all season as we romp home to the title!
Much better than I ever expected in an unknown league. Delighted to take my forth title in four different countries.

Player Stats

A couple of key signings did the trick here. Obafemi was a real coup as he was released by Southampton and also Zidane Jr, who came in after January. Danny Wilson (remember him @Ashez) also was rock solid at the back.

Manager Stats

Delighted with the progress so far, four promotions with four titles! Could not have gone any better.

Where to next?

Obviously I remember him 😛

You're making this look incredibly easy mate!

Ha, Ha! Is is not the best these days. Not sure where it went wrong for him but for £55k he did the job for me.

I am really surprised how its going so far. Lots of unknown leagues and players buts that's the fun.

FMM16 Legend for me, once did a James Thomas (Or a Jimmy Glass as they say) in the second season.

Yeah, was a hot prospect just a few seasons ago but sadly he has gone downhill.

In the MLS now with Colorado Rapids.

Season 5 - Stoke

So I am halfway through my planned 10 seasons on this challenge and we are 5/5 so far. Delighted with how things have gone so far.

After my season in Scotland I was on the look out for a new challenge. Not too many options presented themselves pre-season but I fancied another crack at the championship and another former premier league side needed some help to make it back to the big time!

Transfers Out

No matter what I did, I couldn't convince Pepe to stay and so he had to go halfway through the season. Gutted!

No much else here to cash in on to be honest.

Transfers In

Another raft of new faces to boost the squad. My love in with Bamford continued as I bought him to Stoke for a bargain £5m. Two Scottish lads provided the creativity while I was able to pick up a few useful free transfers.

Another thrilling title race in the Championship. Wolves pushed me hard all the way but we held on well to deliver the 5th straight promotion and 5th title! Great scenes.

Player Stats

Afobe is the ideal championship striker, so it was lucky he was still at the club. Bamford wasn't far behind him. Macleod was a bargain of a AP to provide the balls of my front lads. Also a solid season from Boyata at the back.

Season 6 - Grimsby

658.png.cbf939343b7aab29b8bcb79073a28b64.png

Onto the next season and another new league. Quite a few options open to me this pre-season but I settled on the Mighty Mariners!

Not much cash, as you would expect but with only two strikers I needed to boost the frontline.

Sadly our title run came to an end here, pipped by Crewe in a thrilling title race. Still I gained the promotion I need to keep the 10/10 chance going. We suffered lots of the injuries through the season and one big one that really cost me the title.

Screenshot_20190223-203606.thumb.jpg.0bf9c8242e38824bd4d85d924b192323.jpg

With my first choice keeper injured for 6 months I had to call this lad up!
Have you ever seen a worse set of games! 🙈

Player Stats

Spruce was the best 16k I spent! Great effort from him. Taylor on loan from Bournemouth really provided the goals for big lads up top.

So I am dissapointed not to take another title but promotion was the key and we obtained that.

Season 7 - Athletic Bilbao

1664.png.f82a4491d82d09f46b17b4643dd5686c.png

So after taking Grimsby it was enough in the UK and Warnock fancied another crack abroad and this offer was too good to turn down. Bilbao were languishing in the second division after being relegated a few seasons earlier so good we work our magic to return them to La Liga. Tough challenge this one due to the player restrictions.

Transfers In

Not much we could do here as I could only sign Basque players and all the better players didn't want to drop down a league.

Screenshot_20190227-211908.thumb.jpg.682a3ce3f71db5f9ef75c1f9332665a6.jpg

Transfers Out

I lost my two main strikers during the season due to the fact I missed their relegation clause in their contract! 🙈

La Liga 2

What a season! Back to title winning ways as we storm the league. A massive 20 points clear and Bilbao back in the big time.

Screenshot_20190227-211834.thumb.jpg.362c3b81074413d2c9dc62c77ed903e3.jpg

Player Stats

I had to rely on my youth players here and they performance well with Lopez still from season one helping the team back up.

Manager Stats

So that's 7 promotions in a row now, happy to claim another title too. Almost claimed my first cup too as we caused a few upsets to reach the Spanish Cup Final but Athletico were too strong in the final.

Another great season! I still haven’t got round to doing a Bilbao career as it’s alway interested me with their Basque player policy. Unlucky in the cup!

Thanks Ash, it was something I thought about and decided to take the plunge. This squad would be smashed in the top league but were good enough for the second league. My guess is they would go straight back down!

Season 8 - Blackpool

So with a another one in the bag, old Neil didn't fancy the Spanish food too much and longed for something smothered in gravy and and next job offer provided the chance to get back to some good old English cooking! So into League One and the Las Vegas of the north...Blackpool!

Transfers In

We had a little money to play with to boost the squad. Of course I needed more strikers and I needed someone who could defiantly score goals at this level so I pick up Toney from one of my rivals. Also a couple of handy regens from abroad that proved vital.

Player Stats

Johnsen was an inspired signing for just 55k, was worth over £2m at the end of the season.

Toney also delivered on the big spend on him. The ex-Man Utd youth player Ro-Shaun Williams was solid at the back.
