7 yearsEdited the 10th year, I am beginning the same journey I embark on every new release, beginning my FM save as Leicester City. Nine times out of ten i have been sacked within two seasons then flourish in the lower tiers of the English Football League.

With little of a transfer budget after the signing of two un needed strikers, Ive been hit with dilema number one.... How on earth can I flog Jeffery Schlupp to Southampton for less than £10million. Yes he is no way near worth anything close to that bracket in "real life" but i need a new CB to replace the wilting Robert Huth.

Long story short, I sold him and currently still find myself with no CB. Although i did sign Hernanes for around the 3 million mark. <--- Hasn't lived up to that though.

Im about 8 games in, with the Champions league fixtures destroying the fitness of my first team. The hi lights so far include and 8-2 thrashing by West Brom (Robson Kanu with 4 goals!?!?!) and have had 4 players sent off in less than 6 league games. Never mind the 15 yellow cards this season already. Has anyone else found this?

So heres where i am now, 16th in the league, 7 points. Who would have thought Bournemouth would be able to cope with a 5-2 comeback win against Man City. IS this again because of Jack Wilshere being over rated on another addition of FM?

Within hours of my last post i find my self with in the grasp of being sacked. With just 15 points collected in 13 games i have been requested to gain 10 points from the next 5 games. My fixtures are; Stoke, West Ham, Crystal Palace,Southampton and Man Utd. Dare I say it, I'm not sure how this is going to pan out. Maybe the curse of selling Schlupp is in full effect!


Is this going to be one of same old scenarios where I have to reload a save after each loss to secure my position or do I suck it up and accept the inevitable?

Game 1 Stoke vs Leicester

Moving on to the first game, with Vardy suspended for his second red of the season I was left with no choice but to bank on a Slimani with only a couple of goals to start as a lone striker against a withering Stoke. Ill let the screen shot below do the talking.

Yes this is no joke, a side who lost in a shootout to Rotherham in the EFL cup has had its 45 minutes of pure Slimani madness. The game went on to finish 8-2 however the greatest satisfaction came from Peter Crouch scoring against my legion of men. Thoroughly deserved from my childhood hero. #didn'tdotherobot

Game 2 West Ham vs Leicester

Update coming soon.
Does anyone have a clue about setting up the training? I'm still living in the glory days of the slidey bars pre 2011!
Update coming soon. Do my heros bottle it?
