  1. Just caught up with this mate, I reckon you can do this in two seasons, well done so far and good luck 😁
  2. I’ve got Kerr he’s great, used Souttar in previous saves, but he’s currently playing in the EPL. You should look at Innes Cameron, striker from Kilmarnock, see more about him here shortly 😎
  3. Yeah mate, my young players are developing well. I’ll do a squad review shortly, so you can all see the progress they’ve made.
  4. MORE NEW ARRIVALS 😎 RUDDEN IS BACK... our main man in our promotion year! He joins on a free, along with a few others. Clark is always my go to Scottish keeper, he gets better with age. A few backup players leave, for a combined 575K. Good news is all transfers out so far, haven’t been forced. What Next? Hopefully we can break the Old Firm divide, and not embarrass ourselves in Europe 😁
  5. EUROPA LEAGUE FOCUS 🏆 We hammered these minnows 7-0 in the first qualifying round 💪🏻 Wolfsburg are a good side, so I was surprised and delighted, to beat them at home, then draw the away leg. This was more comfortable for my liking, as we beat Omonoia 7-3 on aggregate! WOW 😯 That 5-0 win against Spartak was our best performance, since I joined the club. Conveniently this result also meant we qualified for the group stages 😍 WELL THAT WAS EXHAUSTING... but very rewarding 😁 Note to self - must not finish 3rd, as you need to play about 100 qualifying matches 👀😂 A decent group for us, we get to test ourselves against French, Portuguese and Turkish opposition.

    Any club in the lowest divisions in the below countries. Portugal 🇵🇹 Poland 🇵🇱 Russia 🇷🇺
  7. FIRST YEAR IN THE BIG TIME 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 We finished the season in 3rd place, which is excellent after our promotion last season. We didn’t get involved in a title race, as Celtic and Rangers were too strong for us. I think the next step should be to finish second, breaking the old firms dominance. WHERE’D THE GOALS COME FROM? You’ll see rather than an out and out goalscorer this season, House and Quitongo helped themselves to 29 goals league goals, between them. House proved to be a great loan signing, we are hopeful of picking him up on a free, when his contract expires in the summer ☀️ Quitongo had a much better season, after arriving on a free last year. At 22, he still has a bit of growth left in him. How did Gilmour perform? 🌟 I wish we had the funds to sign this lad permanently! After 11 goals and 11 assists, he won the young player of the year award ⭐️ I must now prepare my squad for European football, as we take on the Europa League qualifiers 😉
  8. Spoiler.... but never won the league 😂 Yeah I actually don’t mind my best players being stolen, as long as they are going to better leagues. The more Scottish players playing in England, the better.
  9. SEASON TWO - REINFORCEMENTS 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 I was delighted to bring in some quality loan signings. Billy Gilmour is one of Scotland’s best youth prospects . Gordon adds some much needed experience, and can play all across the back four. He was our only paid for signing. Nothing much to see here, a few academy graduates go out on loan. Kidd wasn’t part of my plans, he moves on for 50K, ensuring we ended the window with a profit. Betfred Cup Success 🏆 We win our first piece of silverware. It was particularly pleasing to beat Celtic in the final, as they were the previous winners. Based on the above, what’s your predictions of how we performed in the league? Bearing in mind my prediction was to just avoid relegation 😉
  10. First Season Recap 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 The board expected me to reach the playoffs, I’ve achieved that by finishing second. I’d have loved to start the save in style with a title win, but my young side made a habit of losing games, from winning positions. In hindsight I should have brought in some more experienced heads, but can’t knock a man for promoting youth 😉 Let the Playoffs Begin 🏆 When we were 2-0 up away from home, first leg, I thought the tie was over. Morton stunned me by coming back to draw 2-2. Quitongo finished them off in the second leg, so setup a tie with Livingston! EASY EASY EASY 🔥 We are going up! That 3-0 win at home, was probably our performance of the season. Livi are a decent side, despite their relegation, so I was pleased to beat them so comfortably over the two legs. Star Man 🌟 Zak Rudden was excellent as our Target Man. He finished as top goalscorer in the league, scoring 28 in all comps. The only downside is he returns to Rangers, although I do see him as a future Scotland star. I will hopefully bring him back to the club, at some point in the near future. New Short term goals - Avoid Relegation - Improve youth facilities - Keep majority of squad the same, with only a few key signings
  11. SUMMER DETOX This first transfer window was all about selling all non-Scottish players. We made 575K in sales, which gave me some money to spend on their replacements. New Comers If you are familiar with any of the above names, you’ll know we are relying on youth. It’s not rocket science that the younger the player, the more time I have to mould him into a star ⭐️ I will do more of a player focus as we go through the save, basically when I feel a players form makes him worthy, of recognition. 3x players joined on loan, all with a buyout option. I was 50/50 with these lads which is why I’ve not bought outright yet. I couldn’t resist bringing Islam Feruz to the club, on a free. This lad was tipped for big things, but didn’t live up to expectations at Chelsea. Lets turn him into the Scottish Drogba.
  12. Thanks man, got the Vibe bug after my last career post 😁😂
  13. Potential Stars ⭐️ I evaluated the existing staff at Falkirk, and found three players, who I feel have a great future at this club. Jordan McGhee He is a standout CB at this level. At 22, McGhee has plenty room for potential. I can see him captaining this club, and becoming a rock at the heart of my defence. Kevin O’Hara Looking at his stats, he looks pretty ordinary. Using my experience from past FMM19 saves, this lad always ends up in the English Premier League. Assuming he has some hidden attributes, I will aim to transform him into, a goal hungry poacher. Ross MacLean I won’t be using wingers in my current tactic, so you may be thinking ‘why this guy’. He looks too good a player to pass up on, so I will be attempting to retrain him, as a wing back. I’d usually sell a player that doesn’t fit my current setup, but in this save, I’ll be retraining anyone with potential. Think of this as an experiment!
  14. I thought of starting in League Two, but would have taken me a lot longer to get the Scotland job 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Also I drive by Falkirk’s stadium going to work everyday, so they’re the perfect choice 😁 It’s pretty flexible, you could try it in any league with any country. Cheers mate 😎 Thanks man, hope you enjoy.
  15. Thanks mate, I’m looking forward to seeing what stars I can unearth 😎
