  1. Good Evening All, After a successful year at Stamford Bridge, it appears that Sarri is on his way back to Italy to manage Juventus. This being said, talk is rife about Frank Lampard making a return. Lampard is a legend at Chelsea FC and led me to think about what his season back may look like... I started a new career with Game Editor turned on. I then started unemployed and amended to Frank Lampard to the new manager of Chelsea FC. I then went on holiday for months to capture a screenshot of the AI's prediction of his spell in charge. Transfers As seen below, Frank bought 4x new players to Chelsea spending pover £150million. One of the key signings was Boateng who despite his age is a quality player and good addition. On the flip side, Cahill was sold off to Everton. Results The results for Frank Lampard in his first season were highly inconsistent. He started brightly and had excellent spells including being top of the premier league after 7 matches. Sadly, the inconsistency & poor end of the season cost them dearly finishing a meager 7th in the league. Club Stats So, Chelsea finished 7th in the Premier League. To emphasis Chelsea's form, they won 5 games in a row including 11 without defeat. However, they also went 7 matches without a win! Conclusion It has been a fun experiment to install Frank as manager of Chelsea FC and see what may happen. I guess like at Derby, Frank appears to show a lot of promise at Chelsea with good spells during the season and exciting transfers. This being said, the results indicate a lack of experience at a bigger club, the season finish was poor and sadly he ended the season with his job security being 'insecure'.
  2. 30 SEASONS - THEATRE OF DREAMS The Club The club has improved under my management. The stadium has been vastly expanded,The staff are all trained to the highest standard and results have led to our reputation being 5 stars. All of these confirm that my approach to football management works and is successful. Here are just some of the stats from this 30 season successful period: Highest avg rating in season - D.Crespo 8.13 Most player of match awards per season- M.Salah 16 Youngest player - H.Tyson 17 Highest transfer fee paid - G.Deslandes £194 Biggest Win - 7-0 Club Brugge Most consecutive wins -19 Most games without defeat -40 As stated above, the results and success have been unparalleled and utterly World Class. Alex Ferguson won 13 Premier Leagues and left the game a legend, whereas we have won 24 Premier League titles - 15x consecutively. The Manchester United fans have seen an era of dominance both domestically & Globally of the likes that will never be seen in football history again. The Manager My management of Manchester United FC has been close-to perfection. My 74% win rate over 30 years shows how impressive the reign has been, with Pep Guardiola currently sitting on a 76% win rate. As stated below, the Board and Supporters feel I have been a 'Legendary' manager. Conclusion I took on this 30 year save because of my love for Manchester United FC. I have loved every second of it & will look back fondly on this save. It struck me how dedicated I became to it and how even regens now live long in the memory such as Javier Sosa, Deslandes, Crespo etc. I actually really loved this save and felt I did my club proud. I guess in regards to the game itself I should bring up some points The game froze once or twice at the end of a few matches when going to continue The game could be harder and maybe the conditioning update could have been one way of doing this - I won 15x titles in a row!😲 Hall of fame is genuinely baffling as my 30 seasons should have warranted me being top of the list. Despite wining 5x titles on some occasions, my budget the next season was still 100m.
  3. Thank you both so much for your very kind words. Reaching the milestone of managing the same amount of matches as Sir Alex with Manchester United was a very happy moment. The fact that I matched and bettered his results made the moment even more special. The comment about the goals for is a good point and information I had noticed as well. What I would say is my Tiki Taka system is very reliable defensively but is not always as reliable attacking wise. I think this is down to the team as despite having a great front three, IF the midfielders/defenders are weaker, the strikers will not get the service they need to score goals.👍
  4. Good Evening All, I am writing tonight because I have hit another key milestone in this save and more great achievements. I have reached 1,500 matches managing Manchester United FC. Manchester United's greatest ever manager Alex Ferguson retired after managing the club for 1,500 matches. I would like to compare our reigns. Tactic: I have been using my traditional TIKI TAKA tactic for this save. The only amendment has been changing the tempo to slow which has helped. The tactic has worked extremely well allowing us to control matches and midfield in most matches. Win Rates Alex Ferguson managed 1,500 matches, winning 895 of those, giving him a win rate of 59.7%.He drew 338 matches and only lost 267. He won more half the games he managed at Manchester United which is a great achievement considering the tough task he first walked into & any club would take those stats. In my reign. I have managed 1,500 matches, winning 1,107 of those, giving me a win rate of 73.80%. I drew 253 of those and have only lost 140 games. My win rate is better and to put this in perspective, Mourinho has a win rate of 64% and Pep Guardiola has a win rate of 76%. All-time best XI Manager's Trophy Cabinets Alex Ferguson won 38 trophies over 26years at united. I have won 78 trophies so far. This is a 40 trophy difference which emphasises the impressive management of myself, however, again both successes are unbelievable and would likely never be surpassed. Manchester United Season History Below shows my progress over 23 years at United. My greatest achievement may be 3x Invincible seasons in 37/38,35/36 & 31/32. In addition to this, a lot has been said about Manchester City winning 2x titles in a row as it is hard to motivate players all the time and have that winning mentality, as well as world class players. This being said, I am currently on an 11x title streak and have dominated English domestic football. The Club- Manchester United FC The club has state of the art training facilities & youth facilities. This is something I inherited and any manager taking charge at united is equipped with the best tools for the job. The facilities enable new and current players to develop and grow quicker and better. Old Trafford, the Theatre of dreams currently holds a capacity of over 74,000 which on the game has been expanded to 126,000! The outstanding run the club has had to date in both domestic & world football has lead to an increase in the average attendance. The demand does not fit the supply currently but with good results, my hope is it could. Alex Ferguson's biggest win was 9-0 against Ipswich. My biggest win was7-0 against Club Brugge. This is something he beats me on. In contrast, Alex's biggest defeat was a 6-1 thrashing to the neighbours Manchester City. Our biggest defeat was a 4-0 drubbing to Tottenham Hotspur. Do not think either of us is a winner there. Youth is very important at Man Utd and the treble winning side were built on the class of 92' players. United's youngest player under Sir Alex was Ryan giggs at 17yrs and 3 months. Our youngest player used was T gagen at 18yrs old. Finally, Transfers are fundamentally important to maintain standards and better the side you have. Sir Alex's biggest spend was on Dimitar Berbatov for £30.75. Our biggest spend was a whooping £194 on Gilles Deslandes who was an inside forward who is now more of a trequartista figure, His stats are shown below and he is a truly outstanding player. really hope you have enjoyed this post!!!!!!!
  5. I tried it for a few more matches which got wins or draws but not tested anywhere else.
  6. Not got this far yet. Have researched it and formulated the tactic. Played 2x games so far - 2-0 win above and 3-0 win against swansea. If there are any testers, I'd love to see how this got on.
  7. Please provide feedback. Over 400 people have now downloaded this tactic on the home page. Is it 👍 or a 👎? Please message back your results. Ta, Stuart
  8. Video of 1st match using it. Recommend slowing the playback speed to maximise enjoyment.

    Good Evening All, I am and always have been a Manchester United fan. I used to write to club when I was younger, I buy there kits & play as them on all football games. One of the best moments as a fan was the 1998/1999 season, When we won the Treble of the Premier League, FA cup & the Champions league. Wikipedia sums up this year best explaining that The 1998–99 season was the most successful season in the history of Manchester United Football Club.During the campaign United lost only five times, including a one-off Charity Shield fixture, in the League Cup against eventual winners Tottenham Hotspur and their only home defeat, a league match against Middlesbrough in December 1998. A run of 33 games unbeaten in all competitions began on 26 December at home to Nottingham Forest. I have spent all this week researching & creating the tactic which helped create the most successful season in our history. The basis of the tactic was the 4-4-2 formation. It consisted of a solid back four, creative but hardworking midfielders topped off with a deadly forward line of Cole & Yorke. Let me discuss it further below: So, The way i assessed the Man Utd 99 team was: GK - PETER SCHMEICHEL FB - GARY NEVILLE FB - DENNIS IRWIN CB- JAAP STAM CB- RONNY JOHNSEN WM- DAVID BECKHAM BBM- ROY KEANE BBM- PAUL SCHOLES W-RYAN GIGGS CF-DWIGHT YORKE CF-ANDY COLE After watching multiple matches with the 99' squad, I came to following conclusion: Attacking-Man Utd were a talented & hard working team. They would run non-stop & constantly pass directly to keep in the final third. Wide- So many of the passes and attacks stem from the wings. Beckham and neville with their crosses and giggs with his running at defences. Tempo/Creativity balanced- with both of these, there was a clear pattern in the way we played. In possession we played the ball very fast & direct with creativity sky high whereas in defence, the defence & midfield worked as a unit to slow the opposition right down & hunt with discipline to win the ball back. In regards to defence I found the following: Defensive line/Closing down/Tackling/Offside Trap- Man Utd 99' played with a solid back four who held a high defensive line. We defended all of the pitch starting with Yorke/Cole, going through beckham/Giggs & then Keane & the back four, our defence was relentless. Committed tackling in-deed, reason for keane & scholes sometimes being off - if there was even a sniff of getting the ball, they would stick a challenge in. This all made complete sense as the higher you win the ball, the more likely you can score a goal. Time Wasting- NONE, Almost to the point of being stupid. The opposite of time wasting. Every player ran like it was there last match both in and out of possession. With the final part of the tactic I found: Final Third-In the final third, we did most of the things suggested in the game including early crosses,overlaps,long shots,run at defence etc. Passing Style-Our play was very direct which at times looked messy with the ball being hoofed all the time up front but when it worked, it was so dangerous & managed to create lots of chances. Passing focus-passing focus was generally mixed although tough one. Beckham & giggs got the majority of balls as they were the two most creative players for us. This being said, Cole & Yorke got lots of direct passes normally with one of them acting as Target man for the other. Goalkeeper distribution-In the matches I watched it was always the same with the goalkeeper kicks , always long. I watched at least 5+ examples of this and no short balls out. Blending with the direct mentality, schmeichel would normally boot it to beckham, giggs or further to Yorke or Cole.

  11. I totally agree with your article. I actually find myself enjoying the tweaks in the winter update. For me, the game makes me happy. The realism, the organising & seeing the results of your decisions.
  12. So I have decided to not write up every season but my 2nd season was significant for a number of reasons. The 2nd season was extremely successful with Manchester United FC wining the treble for only the 2nd time in history. As seen below, we won back-to-back Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League. This is on top of the FA Community Shield. This on a par with Sir Alex Ferguson's achievements, stamps the clubs place in the world and my Philosophy as a manager. As you can see below, We have built a very strong squad. Our 2x key signings this season were Bernardo at left wing back & De Bruyne at Central Midfield. How does this squad compare to the one of 99? As a fan, I would always rate the chemistry & hard work of the 99 players but this is an impressive team. Finally, The success of Manchester United won me World Coach of the year. This is a rare honour and believe my 1st currently on FMM19. This achievement confirms my Philosophy(Seen below) works and is a moving personal award for my management style.
