I'm Back!

Hi everyone. Due to a rather unfortunate miscommunication, my Inter story was deleted when indeed I wanted my Blackpool story to be deleted (I just wasn't enjoying the save itself). However, I can't walk away from this story that I love so much, and so I'll be continuing it here. :D

Expect a summary over the first ~1.5 seasons in a little while, and from there regular updates will continue as usual. I hope all my old readers will continue reading, and maybe I'll even get a few more :)

Season One Review

Brace yourself, this will be a long post :P

Who Am I?

I chose Inter Milan legend Giuseppe Bergomi as my manager. He spent his entire career at Inter, making 756 appearances for them and managed to score 28 goals. Bergomi was a hard tackling central defender who captained the Nerazzurri for a number of seasons. He also was an integral part of the Italy squad, making 81 appearances and scoring 6 goals.

Over the seasons, Bergomi won a number of trophies, including 1 Serie A, 1 Coppa Italia, 1 Supercoppa Italia, and 3 UEFA Cups with Inter and 1 FIFA World Cup with Italy.



Summer Transfers


Wesley Sneijder 25m euros to Manchester City
McDonald Mariga (CO) 2.5m euros to Fiorentina
Jonathan 2.5m euros to Flamengo
Ibrahima Mbaye (loan) to Sassuolo
Dejan Stankovic 100k (loan) SL Benfica


Adryan 1m euros from Flamengo
Ademilson 6m euros from Sao Paulo

Winter Transfers


Christian Chivu 1.2m to Hannover


Andrea Poli 16m from Sampdoria
Alan Periera Empuerer (free) from Fiorentina

Tactics


This is my main tactic. It controls the match through the center of the park and relies on an adept Anchor Man, a creative Advanced Playmaker, and bombing forward Wingbacks.

Serie A

First half of the season.


Second half of the season.


Final Serie A Table

New points record and goals conceded record in all of Serie A as well as an undefeated season.

Coppa Italia


Coppa Italia champions on penalties! (Probably the most exciting game I've ever seen on FM.)

Europa League


Europa League win despite starting in qualifying!

Season Overview

Brilliant season, really one of my most successful in all of my FM history. Undefeated in all competitions, a treble, a new points record, a measly record of 10 Serie A goals conceded, and brilliant performances from the whole team.

I am currently in very early February of the second season. This update will review all that has happened this season up until where I am now.

Samuele Longo 1.5m euros (CO) to Chievo Verona
Luca Castellazzi 150k euros to Reggina
Muhammed Demirci (loan) to Novara
Valentino Lazaro (loan) to Livorno
Rodrigo Palacio 1m euros (loan) (6.75m euros future fee) to Granada
Ricky Alvarez 500k euros (loan) (4.4m euros future fee) to Palermo
Dejan Stankovic 400k euros to Galatasaray
Antonio Cassano 6.5m euros to Zaragoza


Mohamed Sissoko 2.8m euros from PSG

Fredy Guarin 20m euros to Man City


Fernando Llorente 2.4m euros from Chelsea
Yann M'Vila 16.75m euros from Stade Rennais
Raheem Sterling 8.5m euros from Liverpool

Supercups


Sadly lost to Juventus for my first loss as Inter boss, but won the European Supercup to start to make up for it. A decent start to the season.

Serie A


Excellent results thus far, undefeated yet again in Serie A so far. :D


11 points clear with a game in hand over Juventus! Brilliant league run so far.

Coppa Italia


Into a two legged semifinal against my biggest non-Milanese rival, Juventus. The winner should have an easy win in the final, but the semifinal tie itself looks tough.

UEFA Champions League



As you can see we absolutely steamrolled through the group stages. We've drawn last season's Champions League winners LOSC Lille in the first knockout round. However, we did beat them in the Supercup and I feel confident about our chances.

Current Statistics

Top Performers
Mattia Destro 23 apps 15 goals 3 assists 3 PotM 7.53 rating
Philippe Coutinho 27 apps 10 goals 7 assists 2 PotM 7.36 rating
Adryan 31 apps 7 goals 7 assists 3 PotM 7.30 rating
Juan Jesus 32 apps 3 goals 1 assist 3 PotM 7.62 rating

Current Injuries
Esteban Cambiasso - Broken Foot (2-3 months)
Joel Obi - Damaged Cruciate Ligaments (5-6 months)
Philippe Coutinho - Sprained Ankle (2-3 weeks)

You lads are now officially back up to date with my story! Regular updates will continue from here on out! I hope you enjoy the story :D

Bergomi Pleased to Return

Inter manager Giuseppe Bergomi has missed his last two training sessions due to an unforeseen illness. He has returned to training today and will be available as usual on the bench for Inter's remaining matches. Inter posted a statement about his return to their website early this morning, and fans are happy to know nothing serious occurred to their star manager.

On a talk show a little past lunch time earlier today, Bergomi explained the whole incident. "It was a complete accident, really. I had a fever and a cough, and so I ordered some medicine to help me recover. I was unlucky enough to be picking up on my prescription the same day as a man named Giuseppe Bermogi. The pharmacist, Randy I believe his name was, mixed up our orders, as our names are quite similar, and gave me the wrong medicine, causing the illness. I am okay now, which is all that matters."
