Hello everyone who is reading this. This is my first FM manger story ever. I planned to start it on Monday and finih the first post on Tuesday but due to a futsal invitation and an MU defeat had filled my schedule with sports and depression. Now in this game I manage two clubs at the same time: Manchester United and Leeds United, the reason being that I love MU and that I want to spice up the Premier league with another MU rival - Leeds.
Note: Because my little brother messed around with the starting date I accidently started on 25 Nov 2010 for both clubs and didn't realise this until around April, I was too distracted in reshaping the staff of both clubs and capturing both star and youth players too, in the case with MU I took advantage of the amount of staffs they had to manually scout every youth candidates in every top clubs in Europe, South America and a few others around the world.
Manager background and experience: I started playing fm at fm11 at my psp, I got bored of it as it was to simple and moved to the computer version. Played fm11 in computer as MU most of the time, biggest win in fm 11: 9-2 vs Liverpool, second biggest win: 7-0 vs Newcastle (using reserve and U18, I was saving players for semis vs Real Madrid and some were injured).
Game style and luck: Usually use 4-4-2 or 4-2-4(same as 4-4-2 with wingers moved front), when I need to control midfield I put one striker as attacking or deffensive midfield depending whther I'm controling the match or not. I'm also trying to make a 4-3-3 formation that copies the passing and attacking play of Barcelona in real life, so far I manage to only replicate between 70%-80% of their beauty and control. I have no luck playing with 3 defenders in all my games, opposing teams either take advantage of the single Centre back or the fact that no full back is stopping their wingers from crossing. My team often scores early in the games, however when we are losing by half time they either win it within 30 minutes of the second or get a draw, all these luck and facts apply to all my fm experience including fm11. I barely get goals in the last 5 minutes, usually one in every 10 to 40 matches.
I will post about transfers and pre season matchers after my sleep. Please look forward to the update.

Please feel free to comment on anything, if you think that starting on 25 Nov 2010 is cheating I won't mind restarting.
Note: My team barely scores in the last 5 minutes to find an equiliser or to win the match.
Now thse are the transfers for Manchester United

Plus I sold Ravel Morrison to Everton for 625K. I added to all the young players, except Diouf, the clause of their next transfer fee so that I get a fraction of their next transfer. The clause ranges from 20% to 50%.
For the older players I added a caluse of 10% to 20% of their next transfer fee or no clauses at all.
Here are the transfers for Leeds

One of the pictures arent working and isn't linked to any page,this is the picture:
The spending on Manchester United maybe excessive, 164m, compared to the fee received, 66m, but MU got a sponsor of 81m so it didn't lose that much money.
My brother manage to convinve me to let him manage Leeds, as a result I will not post anything else about Leeds except their competitive result. First match for Leeds was agains Bristol, lost 3-1, I felt sorry for my brother, his team was playing fine but his keeper had high eccentricity so he kept moving to the edge of the box, this allowed opponent strikers to score from a distance.
Here are preseason results:
Lanus, won 6-2
River, won 5-0
Indipendiente, drew 1-1
America (Mex), drw 0-0
Gangwon, won 1-0
Jeonbuk,won 2-0
Genoa, drew 2-2
Antwerp, won 3-1
Sao Paulo, won 5-0
Malanga, won 3-2
Pleased with preseason results especially with the high scoring game, proud with draws too as the players that mostly played in them are youth and reserved players.

Community Shield match fomation:4-2-4
Line up: Patrice Evra, Rio Ferdinand, Namanja Vidic, Fabio da Sila, Eden Hazard, Marek Hamsik, Javi Martinez, Nani, Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez
Subs on: Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink for Rooney,Ashley young for Nani and Chris Smalling for Rio Ferdinand, all were on on the 66th minute.
We won 3-1. Hernandez scored the first goal, he caught the ball after Rooney had an attempt on goal which hit the hit post, Hernandez was left with a lot of space and scored. Fabio was playing well until a late tackle on Clinchy got him a red card, personally I think it was unfair as Clinch did not fall and Fabio hit the ball first before tripping Clinchy.Kompany equilised for City, Silva took the corner kick and Rio Ferdinand was unable to head it out, Kompany head it in the goal. Hernandez scored again after Hamsik gave a trhough pass, Hernandez rounded Hart and scored. The third goal completed Hernandez's Hat Trick, Eden Hazard made a gret cross and Hernandez headed it in. Although we won I'm worrid about my team's defence and midfield, we were dominated by City as the picture shows.

Rafael was injured which is why I played Fabio.
the transfer fee of the transfer of berbatov is.......


sorry for my english
Lol I know, I always rush when it comes to transfers so early in the game, so I often spend a lot and selll little in my first season, although second season will be smoother financially.
So far so good mate. I see that you released a lot of players. Is it just to clear the wage budget for your team?
1
Yes and to avoid complicated situations in the future. Thoseguys released may complain about lack of first team when they are older and may destroy morale. Plus by getting rid of them the youngsters I keep will have more time playing and increase their chance of success.
dude? wtf? you just sold a whole team and bought a new one?
Everyone has their on way of doing things, me I strip away players that I feel are paid too much for their use in the club and players who I feel aren't going to develop.
I know my way may seem amateur or unexperienced but if you take a look at the players I sold they are either youngsters who I see will fail or players who are aging whos values are going to drop soon. I like to build a team of young stars and with my current teachnique of buying them in the first season I except the risk of failing in the first season due to the lack of morale and that the players need to gel together. Plus funny if you take an even closer look I only sold 1 player who I think is in the starting 11 of MU, Michael Carrick, and Fletcher and Martinez are gonna complete for the midfield spot, Eden Hazard is also fighting for left wing with Giggs, I think you were only looking at the yout players released.
BTW quick question to anyone, since the beginning of the game PSG keeps trying to buy Fabio,every time they bid his agent keeps asking for a contract improvement, so far I have prevented Fabio from being upset by saying that he needs to play better but sooner or later he will play 1 really good game and might ask for a raise, I have set the asking price for him to 15mil but PSG keeps bidding at 5mil to 9mil, I also stated a hands off reply when they if I want to sell him, how do I keep them from bidding again and again?
Update on my brother's Leeds team.
They beat Port Vale in Carling cup 3-0.
3 assists from Robert Snodgrass made 3 header goals.
2 goals from Lucciano Becchio and 1 from Fernando Vega.
My next match is against Man City and I'm hoping this time our performance will reflect our result.
