Solid signing on both of them. Vila probably has his contract expiring in the coming year and if he manages to impress, you might be able to get him on a free!

Leicester 0 - 0 Sunderland
This match was a bore, we played with a nervousness, and despite controlling the match, failed to score and capitalize with a win in the first match.

August 22, 2015
Tottenham 3 - 1 Leicester
We had some decent stretches of play, but Tottenham were a class apart on this day, led by Mousa Dembele's two goals. Gabriel Barbosa notched his first goal, thankfully.

Capital One Cup Second Round
Leicester 2 - 0 Notts County
Although Liam Noble managed to get himself double-booked in 20 minutes, with the second for diving, we couldn't capitalize until Knockaert came on the pitch and scored. Barbosa also scored, again, getting on the end of a cross from youth player Ben Loftus. In addition, Christian Fuchs made his official debut and return from injury.

Leicester (Not Liverpool) 2 - 3 Liverpool
Christian Fuchs really Fuching sucks.

Premier League Table

A very tough start to the season but we've had some tough matches and getting things settled takes time. The signing of Fuchs is kinda sketchy so far since he's so bad, I need him to get it together.
hehehe, Christian Fuchs really fucking sucks.. It'll be tough to repeat and surpass your heroics last season! Great to see Barbosa repaying the fee paid for him :)

West Brom 1 - 2 Leicester
Fuchs had a much better game, playing better defense and getting an assist on a corner kick which he launched to Strandberg for a goal. Ulloa completed the turnaround for our first win.

September 19, 2015
Stoke 1 - 2 Leicester
Our second win in a row. Stefan Strandberg gave Stoke the lead with a comical own goal, but an Ulloa strike from distance and Christian Fuchs' first Leicester goal directly from a free kick sealed the comeback and the three points. FM also noted that Fuchs played well defensively, too.

September 22, 2015
Capital One Cup Third Round
Tottenham 3 - 1 Leicester
Moselman scored a great team goal for us to begin with but even with a man advantage Tottenham were too strong, and I had rotated some players in to get match experience/rest other players.

September 28, 2015
Leicester 1 - 1 Southampton
Kramaric scored for us with a shot that bounced off the underside of the crossbar and in, but Schneiderlin equalized, going unmarked from a free kick and easily scoring. It was a frustrating performance since we had control of the game.

Premier League Table

After the rough start, we rebounded a bit and were undefeated in the league. Christian Fuchs got third place in Player of the Month, and I got third place in Manager of the Month.
Much better month there, hopefully you can keep going :D
Up, up you go! Seems like Fuchs has settled in well now!

Leicester 1 - 1 Bournemouth
We created lots of chances but struggled to turn them into goals, I have the players but I have to tinker with the tactics.

October 17, 2015
Manchester City 1 - 1 Leicester
I'll take this point any day! Aguero was so threatening and I'm not sure how he only scored once! Chalobah scored his first goal, a thunderbastard volley, I hope I can get more inspiration from him!

October 24, 2015
Newcastle 1 - 0 Leicester
Yarmolenko managed to beat his marker, Fuchs, and got off a nice shot at range that beat Schmeichel for the only goal of the match. We struggled to score, despite nice play. Sergio Alvarez broke his leg and will be out 6-7 months.

October 31, 2015
Leicester 2 - 0 QPR
It was a very dreadful Halloween for QPR fans. Kramaric had a great game, scoring two goals, including a penalty when Stefan Strandberg was clattered in the box.

Premier League Table

We've pushed into the top half of the table, although it'll be tough to continue to climb, especially if we don't sort out our structural problems. Gabriel Barbosa hasn't been scoring. Is the warranty still good on him?
'A thunderbastard volley' :)) Quality update mate!

Leicester 2 - 1 Arsenal
It looked like our bad run against Arsenal would continue when Alexis Sanchez powered in a header at the end of the first half, but we started the second half with a Vallejo headed goal from a corner and Kramaric boosted a dramatic shot past a diving Sczcesny to secure the victory.

November 21, 2015
Leicester 1 - 0 Norwich
Norwich have been the surprise package so far this season, and we struggled to break them down, even if we were firmly in control and preventing them from even getting a sniff at goal. Gabriel Barbosa had a goal disallowed for offside, but got a real goal shortly after to give us a crucial win. Also, Adrian Smith made his debut for us, I want to start bringing him in more and seeing if I can make him first team by 18, he is described by our scouts as a potential world-class player.

November 28, 2015
Everton 2 - 0 Leicester
We took a step back as Everton played better than us, Strandberg made a comical mistake to give Lukaku a goal when he lost control of the ball when trying to run onto an Everton through ball, and Mirallas got on the end of a cross to make it 2-0. Kramaric will miss 2 weeks with injury.

Premier League Table

Newcastle 3rd, Everton 4th, Arsenal 11th. I wonder how much things will normalize over the course of the season? Two wins out of three ain't bad, and the loss coming to 4th placed Everton.
Already on 8th place!! Great stuff man, you manage to turn it around EVERY time!!
This last update is sad, because I can't continue this story anymore, I tried upgrading my laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 10, and it failed, and it basically ended up making it unable to boot. Not least to say, I didn't back up my files because since Windows 10 was installed on my desktop I was confident it would be fine on my laptop.

Sorry, everyone.
Ill news, mate. Sorry to hear that, and I can say on behalf of everyone who read this story that it'll be missed. I thoroughly enjoyed it how you managed to turn a relegation side into a top-half side..

Sorry, everyone.

This is really too bad, it's a fun read. However, this is the best argument I can make for Dropbox for your key saves (and also for writing files).
