Hopefully this thread will reduce the number of threads and give people a little place to share some of their successes with FM. Please try and not to spam it though, particularly those of you who like to go off-topic and pretend like you're on MSN.

Just signed an awesome new player? Won the league? Managed to survive relegation? etc..

Just wont my Championship Tittle with Newcastle 4 games left.
Loan Danny simpson from Man Utd played 23 games with 2 assist with average rating of 6.78, another loan is Iker Muniain from Athletic making 6 apps for me scoring 2goals with average rating of 6.98.
Signed Henri Camara and Ebi Smolarek on free transfer, Ebi score 25goals, 6Asst and 7MOM in 30apps with Rating of 7.29 (Not bad for a free agent)

It tooks awhile for me to find the right tactics and at 1 point im enjoying 7 winning streak.

Signing Vukcevic for 2.5M. That's a success if I've ever had one!

LFC Season 1

I started with Liverpool (as I always do in each version) to see just what I could do with this game. The tactics took me a few early games to learn so I started with a few draws in the League.

In the first transfer window I decided that with Agger, Skrtel and Aquilani out injured (and the departure of Alonso), I would need a centre-back and a couple of midfielders to shore things up.

I went looking for quality on the transfer list and targetted immediately targetted Gabriel Milito and Raphael Van der Vaart. After a protracted saga I got Milito for £4.6m (afer awaiting his injury to go from red to orange for him to pass the medical), Van der Vaart for £7.3m, Camacho for £5m and Balotelli for £21m. (last day of window and a panic buy as I felt I needed another striker! haha). Luckily the board had actually agreed for my request for more transfer funds straight away and this left me with £3m and change to buy in a couple of youngsters that hopefully will either make me a good profit or become a good player for me over the next few years.

- After a slow start I ended up with the Invincible! achievement (bought the dvd but installed over steam) for never getting beaten over the whole league season. There were some dodgy games where we rode our luck and some where I seemed to change tactics every 5-10 minutes just to get us back into games. After a lengthy tussle with Chelsea for the summit, I won the Premiership by 10 points (Chelsea and Man City gave me major problems though and all four games were draws as was my last minute equaliser from Agger's free-kick away to Burnley!).

- The League Cup final was us against Chelsea and I needed Benayoun to slot home penalty 7 to secure victory, FA Cup glory followed against Everton 1-0 (Balotelli after 2 minutes).

- Finally in the Champions League final against Lyon (who had beaten Real Madrid 6-2 in the semi-finals - we put out Chelsea again on away goals!) VDV and Gerrard scored either side of half-time to round off a near-perfect season.

With a lot of cash in the bank and the sale of many squad players behind me I am currently revamping the squad for the new year. I have signed Robert Enke on a bosman as back up to Reina and invested £13m in Ribery to replace/improve the departed Kuyt and Benayoun. I am switching from defensive 451 tactics to more offensive 343 ones for this season in an attempt to turn nervy draws into comfortable wins (Agger, Carragher and Milito chosen over Insua, Johnson and one of the three on the bench!).

I am hoping for some similar success this season coming and will try to check back in to let you all know where this game goes in the future!

Cheers,
Chris
