Welcome To Leicester City Football Club


Leicester is a England-based club and was founded in 1884, they are currently playing in the Barclays Premier Leauge. The biggest achievements of the club is winning the League Cup (3 times) and finishing runner-up in the English First Division (1929). The Foxes play at King Power Stadium, built in 2002, which has a capacity of approximately 32 000.



My goal with this save is basically to make Leicester a stable top-5 team. I'm now going to show you my signings/sales of the transfer window, and also my tactics.



John Fleck is the replacement of Andy King which, in my opinion, doesn't look that great. Made a £3.25 million profit of that swap aswell.

Yannick Bolasie is a creative player with alot of pace, he will be filling the space at the left wing.

Paul Dummet replaces Jeffrey Schlupp at left back. Schlupp has more pace but Dummet is alot better overall, and especially defensively.

I spent alot of money on the 23-year old Daniel Ayala from Middlesbrough. Our centre backs are old so I wanted a good, young future replacement. Ayala is really good at heading the ball and has great stamina, he also has 18 in both aggression and bravery.

I will probably show you screenshots of the signings at some point, but not today.


This is the tactic I will be using for the most part this season. I want a box-to-box midfielder to cover the space behind the striker. I want wingbacks to cover the wings when the inside forwards cut inside. That's the most important stuff to tell you guys about I guess.


So, for the team instructions, I'm using "look for overlap" to get the wing backs to push up more. "Be more expressive" and "work ball in to space" are useful because we have alot of creative players in the attacking third. "Retain possesion is just because otherwise we will just throw the ball away all the time, and I use "close down more" thinking that alot of our players has good stamina and work rate.

That's it for the first update of this FM 2015 story, hope you enjoyed guys, I'll see you soon.
Good luck! :)

Pretty good month, we had some though fixtures against Arsenal and Liverpool, and were pretty unlucky in both. For example, Liverpool scored two penalties when we faced them! Anyway, we're playing well, are through in the Capital One Cup, and now I hope to start collecting some points in the Premier League!

Also, Tom Lawrence won Premier League Young Player of the Month, and Nick Powell finished third.

Summary of this month; Nightmare, just nightmare. I have now made some changes in the tactic, so let's see if it's going to get better from here. The long term injury of Cambiasso (3 months) screwed up my tactic, but that's just something I have to deal with. Some games we were unlucky, like the West Brom game were they scored their goal in injury time of the second half, or the Middlesbrough game, where Chris Wood missed an injury time penalty. Anyway, I'll talk to ýou guys as soon as possible.

I'm pretty happy with this month. We only lost in the Premier League to Man Utd, and we got an important win vs Stoke at home. Next month we have to get some wins though, wish me luck, guys!
This save is reminding me very much of Glenn T's David Beckham story on Football Manager 2013. If you read some of the early pages you will know what I mean. please put where you are in the league table then it would be great. Some good signings also bit of an overpay for Ayala but Bolasie is a bargain.

Yes! After hours of trying to change the tactic to the better, we've finally got some really good reults! The Southampton game was really tight, but in the end, we probably deserved the win. Both Spurs and Chelsea completely outplayed us, but we managed to hit them and grab some points of them! The only slight dissapointment is the draw against Sunderland, which we dominated from start to goal, but in the end, we only equalized with six minutes remaining. Also, we maybe deserved to be a little bit unlucky this game because we were so lucky the two most rescent games. Anyway, I'll see you guys at the start of January, and I'll then show you the six games of December, and also show you the league table after the first half of the season. Hope you all are good, see you!

I'll have to check that out! Will show the league table after the first 19 games of the season. Yeah, Ayala was maybe too expensive, but he was the only decent centre back available that was young. :/
Bolasie is really good though!
Great month mate - good luck for the rest of the season.
