Admin: I have searched for a thread like this if there is it has a **** name because I cant find one.

I wanted to know the best cup run you have ever had like it doesnt matter what cup (obviously not super cups) because I find a decent cup run is one of the more rewarding aspects of the game

I think I am currently on the best run ever as I am currently managing Bolton and I am in Carling Cup Semi-Finals after beating Chelsea 3-0, my personal favourite beating Manchester City 6-1 and then I was drawn with Arsenal at that point I thought FM was taking the **** and I beat them 2-0 at Emirates.

With out cheating, My best cup run came with MSK Zilina in the Euro cup. Beat Atletico in the final 2-1, awesome run. I took alot of time to prepare for the matches too

Coupe de France Semifinals with Arles-Avignon on my first season, was leading the league as well, but quit playing because my reserves weren't playing and I couldn't properly rotate players because they were unfit, got ****** and threw the save out the window.

Champions League win in the first season with United. I cruised through the group stage and got drawn with Real Madrid in the first knock out round. Won 3-1 in a tough encounter. Next round against Sampdoria, I lost 5-1 on the road, horrible result for the team, I was really ******. Second leg, crushed them 6-0 to win the draw 7-5 on aggregate, haven't been that happy over an FM match since I won my first Champions League. The semi-final saw me drawn against Arsenal. Lost 2-0 in the first leg at the Emirates and conceded early in the second leg to go down 3-0. First home 5 goals, including 4 from Rooney to win the match in another great comeback. Finally, I was in the final with a match against Barcelona. Should be tough, right? Wrong, jumped out to an early lead and cruised to a 4-0 win.

I know its not impressive that I won the Champions League with Manchester United, but its how I did it. Having to battle back twice against Sampdoria and Arsenal. Taking care of Real Madrid. And finally crushing Barcelona to lift the cup. I think it was a great run.

Kidderminster Harriers 1st season in the FA Cup - beat Wycombe third round, drew at home to Reading 4th round but won replay away, drew at home to Portsmouth 5th round but again won the replay away, beat West Ham in the quarter final away. got Man United in the semi final but got absolutely hammered 8-1.

I think the best cup run i will ever have
