Hello Guyz...and welcome to my new story based on Football Manager 2015. FM 16 has not been as encouraging for me as it is for some of the writers here, and it did not help to take my mind of FM 15....the first ever FM I played. I have found myself playing FM 12,13 and 14 nowadays,... but It was not as great as FM 15 for me.....I had a Newcastle story going on but due to some career situations I had to drop it. It was in the path of being successful, but stopping it at least done me some good.

But now I am back again with another brand-new story here on FM Scout, and I know you will give me your full support for it.

As usual, my team is Liverpool. It is the club I support and I feel always honoured to manage this beautiful club. But this will not be a one-club story. First time I will be using all three tactics which are my own. So this will tend to getting me sacked some time or other., but as long as I don't get sacked, I will be a LFC guy......

Updates will be not monthly updates with full logos of clubs, but I will focus on my writing. I don’t really like posting all the logos of a club as it is a complete waste of time.

This is it for now...have a nice day
As you all know, Liverpool is a great club. But now it is fair to say that they WAS a great club. Current circumstances have seen them not performing up to their standard. But a recent miss on a Premier League title is the thing which is needed to lift them up from the dark days. A UEFA Champions League appearance since 2010 has made the fans of the club dreaming for a great future. It is up to me to keep them in that place in the years to come.

Tactics: This is a touchy subject for me. As much as I think, I am the worst tactic maker in the history of FM. My tactics have seen Newcastle lose their first 15 games. My tactic have seen Everton in a dismal run of 26 games without a win. My tactic has seen Havant relegated from VCS. And my tactic has even seen Barcelona lose 4 games on a ROW!!. But If I keep using other's tactics, my tactical skill will not improve and it will be bad. So I have decided to do my own tactics for this save. If it would not work, my job is done.
So good so far..even I can't stop playing fm15 and I still prefer it over fm16

Thanks man. fm 16 is not so overwhelming to me. done only 2 saves with them. but still continuing the Adalari save of Lippo.

And welcome to the site :D

In and Out

I took over the club from Rodgers on July 8 2014. Instead of putting my name as manager, I chose for a German one. I named him Benedikt Werner. He was a former international of Germany, my favourite national team. I chose Germany over England because it gives me a 60% chance of becoming the manager of Germany in the future.

Enough blabbing about the manager. Let's talk about transfers. Rodgers had already done a fair bit and used up a lot of money. But it didn't have any impact on the team's finances as most of the money came from the sale of Suarez to F.C. Barcelona. Lazar Markovic , Mario Balotelli , Adam Lallana , Alberto Moreno, Dejan Lovren and Javi Manquillo all arrived from Benfica, A.C. Milan, Southampton, Sevilla and Atletico Madrid respectively, with the latter being on loan with a future fee option. It was a good group of players, but I thought we needed some strengthening on some areas.

Joe Allen was the first to leave the club. It was not due to his abilities, but his character. Yesterday I caught him hitting a man in the city. When I asked him why he did it, he replied that the man had hooked up his girlfriend. I had sympathy for him but I can't have a player with this attitude on my team. If a girl goes, another will come.

Tottenham came calling for him. Wages were low, but they offered him to find a girlfriend as soon as possible. I got about £4 million for him. Low fee, but I was happy that I got rid of him.

With Allen leaving, I needed a new CM. Instead of looking for a player with experience under his belt, I searched for a hot prospect, who can stay at the club for at least 10 years, and can eventually replace Henderson on my team. The search had gone on to 5 days, when we found the correct man in Portugal. Joao Mario is a 21-year old youngster from Sporting C.P. . He was the right man for the role and I completely disagreed with Arsene Wenger, who, being jealous that I signed him right under his nose, criticised me.

Timo Horn was a 21- year old goalkeeper I signed from Koln. He looked quality enough to overthrow Mignolet in about 6 years, and will be my backup goalie from next season, as Brad Jones will leave then. He will go back to Koln for a season long loan, so that he will get some much needed experience playing in big matches.

That's it for the transfers this season. No more transfers will occur in this transfer window as my budget is finished. Until next time, Goodbye

Great Start

Normally I don't care about pre-season. Pre-season for me is buying and selling players. I usually don't concentrate on friendlies as I always use other's tactics. But now, I mean business. It's my own tactics, and I can't let my assistant look after it. It's my own. So this preseason was very important for us.


We started of in great fashion against Sporting C.P. from Portugal. Goals from Sturridge, Coutinho and Markovis set them on their way. It was a great result. Even if it was not important, signs have showed that my 4-2-3-1 is excellent.

We visited Gangzhou Evergrande next, and was very unlucky in the draw. Sterling got us ahead at the end of the first half, but we scored an own goal from Lovren in 77th minute. We completely dominated the match, and their goalkeeper rightly deserved Man of The Match.

Another Chinese team in our way, and this time we made no mistakes. I have nothing to say as the scoreline says it all. The highlight was a hat-trick from Raheem Sterling.

A late goal from veteran Rickie Lambert gave us a victory over River Plate in the Antonio Vespucio Liberti,"Monumental". We were extremely lucky to win the match as the players put their worst performance of the pre-season.

Schalke held us for a draw. After the match, I was fuming because we had 45 shots in that match, and we managed to get 15 on target. But they did not put one in the net!!!. It was a dismal performance overall.

The first match of the league will be against Crystal Palace, and it will be a much easier game to start with, but no disrespect to Palace
Really good start there
There is a wide open opportunity with no Liverpool story on this forum atm, if you do it right you should get a massive following!

BOOO! Liverpool, BOOO! :P

MJK46: Thanks man

Griffo: Kind words. much appreciated.

Deutsch: Thanks

Liverpoolbros: Thanks bro, and Allen's attitude just irritated me. Anyway that girl was not worth a secong look :D :P

Griffin: #GOLFCGO. don't think that a title will come any time soon with my tactics

Lippo: first I thought about the title Everton Sucks!! Liverpool Journey.... but had not decided to do it :P

Show Time

The arrival of August means the arrival of a new and exciting season. Every counry I know, starts their season in mid-August or maximum by end of this month. Fans and the players are gearing up for the start, the players especially raring to go and play their hearts out on the turf.

Liverpool players right now were in that mood. After last season' amazing finish, everyone will be dreaming of a title challenge. But I have assured the players that I will be happy with a Europa League finish, and a cup or two, possibly.

The season started against a fiery Palace side, who came with a run of 7 straight friendly wins. The first half was the worst half I have seen in this season, with us, namely Lovren gifting them a goal. But we came back in the second half with 3 goals from Sturridge, Markovic and Sterling, and that proved enough to see of Palace.

After that, we went on a hot streak with 3 wins on the bounce over relatively easy sides in Villa, Stoke and Burnley.

Then we played a stalemate in Celtic Park in the Champions League(more about that later)

The first true test came against our rivals Man United in the league. And it proved to be the end of our winning streak as we lost by 4 goals to two. Falcao scored all four against us. This really angered our fans as they bombed all over the streets of Manchester. This resulted in a 5 game ban for the fans.

I have only played this much and here is the results and league table.

In the UCL, we were drawn against Benfica, Olympiakos and Celtic. Not a very tough group and I am naturally pleased to avoid some of the bigger teams.

One thing I forgot to say is that Lucas Leiva is on the fringe of leaving the club, after he was caught stealing a double-size burger, with his friend and fellow Everton player John Stones.

In other leagues

In Italy, it is Genoa CF leading the group, closely followed by Inter. Champs Juventus were already down in 6th place

In Spain, Barcelona as usual is leading the lot, with surprise package Granada in second. Real Madrid is in 7th place.

In Germany, Schalke, Bayern and Dortmund are the top 3, with Frankfurt, Freiburg and Hoffenheim not far behind.

In France, It is favourites P$G leading, Marseille not far behind in 2nd place.Toulouse are down in 10th place. Their 7-0 defeat against Lyon was the main highlight.

Really good month and I like the other leagues section you have
