Hey lads. Never been any good with writing about my career stories, even throughout all the FM sites I've been on through the ages!

What I've always done with a new FM is take on Barcelona for a quick season or two, purely to get to grips with all the new features and work on tactics etc. But after that, is where the fun begins.

Start unemployed.
Poor Coaching Stats
Various Nations & Leagues (18 Nations, majority of leagues playable)

So, with that profile, I managed to get a job at Berwick Rangers, Scotland, League Two, Media Prediction of 3rd.

At this point I'm sitting first in the league, 10pts clear of second place, sitting comfortable.
P-25 W-17 D-4 L-4 PTS-55
Nothing really special about that, predicted third at the start of the season and flying high with my tactics, which is great. But still a bit to go, and the league is far from done and dusted, some of the top teams to face in the latter games of the season, so could drop vital points.


Ramsdens Cup: Expectation, Not to be outclassed.
First Round v Queen Of The South 3-1 (won)
Second Round v Rangers 0-0 (lost on penalties)

The board were happy with that, a dignified loss in all accounts.

League Cup: Expectation, None.
First Round v Falkirk 1-2 (lost)

It doesn't appear on the confidence section, so I assume the board didn't really care about it, it was only my second game in charge as well, so not fussed.

Scottish Cup: Expectation, Reach The Third Round
First Round v Strathspey Thistle 5-0 (won)
Second Round v Ayr United 2-2 (Replay result 3-2 won)
Third Round v Kilmarnock 2-2 (Replay result 2-0 won)
Fourth Round v Livingston 2-2 (Replay result 2-1 won)
Quater Final v Motherwell (To be played)

Seems I was fighting for the replay, to get a home match, and play a bit better, that said, against Killie and Livingston I threw away first half leads, so was unfortunate to get a draw and have to play another game, but the home fans make a difference. Motherwell will be the first Scottish Cup game that has been at Home first! So hopefully get a win straight off the bat, as playing away I don't think I'll be able to get the result.
i have it on good authority you've already left these muppets :P good luck
You're authority is correct :D

Finished the season top of the league and gained promotion. All good goings... I did lose to Motherwell in the QF of the Scottish Cup, but it was a great run.

I noticed a job going for Sporting Gijon B, spur of the moment, took it! Struggled for the a while, 14 games and only taking 2 wins and 5 draws and 7 losses! But got a good bit of momentum going now, 7 games unbeaten, which has taken me out of the relegation zone.

Oh! and I lost my best performer this season, due to him being moved to the first team! Never been in charge of a B team before, so yeah, a bit frustrating that you can't even request he be moved back down.
