Since getting Football Manager 2011 I've had only one career at my club Nottingham Forest, I wondered if anyone had been using Forest as I have been and if so how are you getting on? First forum story on here so tap back.
I use Forest all the time!

I'm a season ticket holder at forest so I know how I want the team 2 doesn't always work though.

who is your current starting 11?
Ahh good to see a Forest fan replying to me so quickly, are you off to the QPR game tommorow? In answer to your question do you want to know my current starting eleven or the starting eleven I used in the first few seasons? You Reds!
I am one of the very few (i don't say the only) fan of forest in greece...I started playing fm since the '06 and i always have a "good" save with forest...Atm i am in 2017 with forest,havig played 1 champions league final (lost with goal in 93 minute),1 europa league semi final lost from the spurs in agg. and i finished 2nd in the league,same points with man city but lost in goal difference for 1 goal...:(
Startin IX:


tcv7 good to see there are fans everywhere, I've been playing Football Manager since my stepdad introduced me to it in 2006, I started off not being able to play a full season without giving up and starting again because I got bored or lost my first game or even because once at Chelsea I lost a friendly and made a new game. Back to now since 2008 I've been playing games and trying to challenge myself and it wasn't til 2010 that I thought about going for a game with Forest but I didn't realise that being a non-league footballer or ex-international had any influence on the game until 2011 when I figured it all out and started with Forest and seeing as youve put your list of honours down here is mine and my current team: I'm now in 2020 and am about to start another season. 8/5/2011 Promotion from the npower Championship and then a relegation scrap the year after which ended up with me finishing 15th by beating Chelsea on the last day at Stamford Bridge, then raced up the table and finished 6th the next season giving me some money to spend on improving with youth rather than current potential, then with some crazy runs of form and a good finish my defense pretty much won the league for me only conceding 22 goals in the season. I felt invincible after winning the league with the club I support until slipped up at the start and end of the season after and only managed to finish 8th, the board, thankfully, didn't mind and allowed me to carry on at the helm then in 2016 I wont the English League Cup and English Premier Division and won back the love of the Forest faithful.

2017 marked the start of what felt like a new era to me, it was the end of the City Ground. In the interest of finance and my growing fan support I'd been relocated to Nottingham Forest Stadium and soon began to rake in the gate receipts. Sadly, I could not immediately impress at the new stadium and finished 6th in 2017 just squeezing into Europe again with all my past attempts at any continetal trophy being unsuccessful. 2018 marked a rebirth for The Reds and I found myself commanding a EURO Cup winning team and also an English FA Cup in the same season, I was back and ready for whatever the likes of Arsenal and Man. City could throw at me with there millions ready to spend, as if the season wasn't enough I then won the European Super Cup and at the close of the season increased the new grounds capacity to 51,361. The next season was rather a lot less interesting with my Nottingham Forest squad settling for 4th place and just losing out to Inter Milan in the European Cup final.

The end of the 2019/2020 campaign marked my finest season yet with us not only winning the title itself, the FA Cup and the League Cup but having a second European Cup Final in two years, however there is some form of curse stopping me from winning it as I somehow lost 2-0 to Olympique Marseille. As a World Class manager it was inevitable that I managed a national team and jumped at the offer from the Spanish FA on the 26/6/2017 my pride was gunned down immediately as I failed to qualify for the early rounds of the Confederations Cup which according to the media I should've quite easily won. However, I won the countrys appreciation in 2018 as I beat Cameroon in the Quarters, Chile 3-1 in the Semis and France 3-1 in the Final. If this wasn't enough to win them back I finished by beating Italy in the Final of the 2020 European Championship.

If you enjoyed reading this then let me know. Once I've gotten a few more responses I will post up the various squads I've had throughout the ten years I've been with Nottingham Forest and continue to update you until I get to the top of all the categories in The Hall Of Fame and begin my quest to complete the English Hero achievement.

That was supposedly my best eleven in the 2012/2013 season a team that looking back I am confused by but still a team I managed to get into 6th place with a wide 4-3-3.

I'm more than happy to post last seasons best eleven if you would like to see it?

Forest 1-1 QPR not a bad result with 10 men why Majewski? Just why? Also my stepdad another Forest fan started a game with West Ham played a season or two and said he missed Forest and made a new with Robbie Findley in fine form including a hat-trick in a 5-0 win over Chelsea in a pre-season (the current Chelsea team e.g Torres and all that).


P.S just read this back to myself after posting and the way I laid out the appearances, goals and average rating looked much better when it was being composed, sorry lads I'll work my way through this relatively new environment sooner or later.

Yeah feel free to post ya best elven.

I'll post my stats at the end of this season, only just done friendlies
I might do at some stage, do you manage a national side?
ive got a save with forest, won the prem in 2015, though im a newcastle fan :)

winning line up was,
gunter, spence, kara, fatic
------dzeko--ahmed khalil---

Paul anderson won Prem player of the year with 22 assists and 13 goals, not sure how he is so good,
dzeko scored 42 in all comps.
Anderson was never that good on mine? :S
yeh im not sure what it is because obviously he's not statistically great, i played him right attacking mid and he ran in at the back post and scored a few, and just ran to the byline alot and played it back into the box, worked a treat, i think his pace and agility is 17 so that helped
Hi guys, just started a new save game with forest.
I see all of your starting 11 above and wonder what kind of tranfer/wage budjet did you get after promotion?
1st season after promotion I spent 8 Million and then 2nd season in the Prem I spent 17.5 Million but obviously it varies with everyone.

You are reading "Nottingham Forest".
