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
Sorry you must have cheated. I've started as Liverpool manager and had virtually no funds available, brought in Van Nistelrooy and Van Der Vaart (on loan) and just won the league? £13m for Ribery sorry that's just not realistic if true.

In my game I've got just £14m to spend in the off season but over budget on wages so I will need to reduce my transfer fund and selling players is not worthwhile as I've only get 5% of their transfer fees to spend

got the game last friday and completed my first season Monday evening with Everton.

Having only bought 2 players, a left back who I rarely used and Beckham (free in January) who didn't play that great I managed to win the Europa League.

I also finished 6th in the league, doesn't sound that great but the league was rediculously close and I was just 4 points off the top! with 2 games to go I could still win the league.

was pleased with 2 wins against Liverpool and 1 against Man Utd.

Also coming back from 3-0 down to Man City to 3-3 before going 4-3 down and finishing up 4-4. In no small part to Lescott who helped out the toffee's by giving away 2 penalties!

i got the game last friday too !

I'm managing FC Dinamo Bucharest because is my favourite team from my country! I'm in the 3rd season as the manager of this team and I'm very proud that I've made a really big team, with big names, from what used to be Dinamo.

I'v brought players like: Mantorras, Dusan Kuciak, Antonio Mirante, Juan Pablo Caffa, Ignazio Abate, Federico Laurito, Digao, Modibo Diakite, Cristian Molinaro, Johan Vonlanthen, Mame Biram Diouf, Lacina Traore, David N'Gog or Rodrigo Possebon from high-level clubs. I think that, for the level of the Romanian first league, those are big players!

I've won the championship twice and I've also won the cup twice in the first 2 seasons.

I've achieved victories against teams like Valencia, Villareal or FC Porto.
3-2 vs Valencia (Mantorras 2 goals, Cristian Pulhac 1goal)
2-0 vs Villareal (Mihai Costea and Johan Vonlanthen - the scorers)
1-0 vs FC Porto (Mantorras)

I use often the 4-2-4 formation:
2 full backs
2 central defenders
2 center midifielders
2 attacking midfielders (one wing on the right and one on the left side of the field)
and 2 strikers !!!
- attacking mentality and flanks develop
- quick tempo
- very fluid
And it proves to be a very good tactic.



And I've reached every year the second knockout round in Europe League coming from Uefa Champions League.
I've become an FM addicted and I like it !

On FM09 i managed to save Luton Town from relegation with the points deduction, went on to play until 2015, securing promotions from League 2, then League 1 befow making the Championship Playoffs loseing 3-0 to West Ham, was sacked the season after for failing to reach them kind of standards again.

On FM08 i fell victim to the Stadium bug on the issue of the game, managed to get my hometown club Chesterfield to the Championship but was sacked for financial problems arising from not being able to expand my Stadium.

Anyway on to FM10, just finsihed my first season with Chesterfield. 5th in League 2, lost in Playoff Final 3-2 vs Crewe after losing to Bournemouth (Relegated) on the last day of the season at home when a point would have sent me up. Scored 91 goals in the League but conceded 62. Signed 9 players on frees pre season, ***** Topp (ended up scoring 36 goals) Luka Senicanin (CF, scored 20 goals), Godwin Antwi (RB), Zoumana Bakayoko (LB), Gary Roberts (CM), Fabio Ferreira (RW), Gary Frewen (LW), Lars Stubhaug (GK) Daniel Ayala (CB 50% of next transfer due to Liverpool). Highly recommend all these players, some take some time to settle in and some looking to the future.

Best Win 6-1 Home vs Hereford Utd

Worst Defeat 0 - 8 Away vs Millwall (FA Cup 2nd Round)

Looking forward to next season, hopefully challange for title if we can work on the defense, and very excited about moving into the B2NET Stadium.

I got the game for a while now, but i had been playing FM since 2005 Version.

I also noticed there are many Newcastle fans here :)
I started my season with Newcastle cause i like that team + it was in Coca Cola Championship witch was a really motivating thing cause i like to build a team and make the success, not to jump directly in managing the best teams ever, where you have money and every player wants to join...

So i think i sold at least half of the team in order to buy Vela witch turned out to be a great peace of business !

Now i'm struggling to sign quality players cause i promoted... I's kind of hard but i hope i will be able to cope :)

Here i'm sharing my success with Newcastle with you. Anyone got so many points in CC Championship ? :)

Be back soon ! Now i have to go search for players :)
