Thanks buddy
right, ok so i've had a look and i reckon the link you need is not the one next to link, but the one near the bottom of the page, which says "direct".

this is a test image from an old game to see if it works
Yep, its the "direct" link which you want. Best of luck with the story mate.
Oh good you started. Yeah, Ive got the same problem. Damn work when you can stay home playing FM


Myself, I use the FORUM CODE. Just copy the link and paste.

Erase the "Uploaded with ImageShack.us" which comes with the link.

If you still can’t run the pics let us know. Well simplify it for you. I’m not an expert myself but well get it running for you mate.
He should be OK if he follows his own instructions, with just one small amendment.

I kow what you mean. I'm normally do terribly on other FM titles so its the only option i used to have if i wanted to do well.
Season 2- 2012/2013

If you dont want to go to the last page, here's a summary of the transfers i made over the off season...


I go into the new season with a media prediction of 19th place......... here it goes

Barclays Premier League




there is a bit of an overlap of fixtures here!



As you can see here, i had a bag full of mixed results. There were many highs, and many lows, but this is how the league table stood at the ed of the season...



Ninth place!! I couldnt believe it. I thought i would be in a relegation scrap, and especially that i couldnt get any more funds in January, i really thought i was doomed. But, my boys showed courage and bravery, and finished within the top half of the league.

The Carling Cup


The results were as followed....
    2nd round- Leicester 0p- Preston North End 0
    3rd round- Leicester 3-1 Aston Villa
    4th round- Blackburn0-op Leicester
    Quarter Final- West Bromich Albion 1-4 Leicester
    Semi final 1st leg- Manchester City 0-1 Leicester
    Semi Final 2nd leg- Leicester 3-2 Manchester City
    Final- Newcastle United 1-1p Leicester

We did it!! We won the league cup on penalties. Actually i won a lot of my ties on penalties which probably wasn't great but who cares, i've won more than Arsenal have in seven years...sorry gooners, although i think they did win the league!! Mainly though, it means in the 2013/2014 season, i'll be playing in the Europa League!!!



FA Cup



I didnt have a great cup run this season and got knocked out by Reading in the third round!
Player ratings and third season coming soon!!

Yet again, i really need to thank DEMBA! and Shameless with all their help in the past couple of days! Thank you so much guys!!

You are so welcome mate! :)
Great season ! You lost against the top clubs (2-3 Chelsea close one) BUT you won the must matches. Whats the expectations for next season? Europe League or even higher?

The aim was to get into the group stage of the Europa, and then hopefully re- qualify by finishing sixth in the premiership, or retain the league cup! They always say the second season in the premiership is the hardest so I guess staying in the division was the main aim!
Key Plater ratings 2012/2013

Kasper SSchmeichel


He had a great season in goal this year. He played in 37 out of the 38 league games at an average rating of 6.99 . He conceded 58 goals which wasnt great but they weren't all his fault. He also received 1 Man of the Match award. My goalkeeping coaches think he still has the potential to be a quality player so there's still time to fill his fathers illustrious shoes!!

Kris Stadsgaard


Kris formed a solid partnersship with captain fantastic Matt Mills. SSigned for a mere £1.6 million, at an average of 6.82 from 31 appearances in his first season is fairly solid in my opinion. He quickly became a fans favorite with 4 goals to his name, 2 assists and 5 Man of the Match awards.

Yuki Abe


Yuki was fantastic last season, and this season proved why he was almost un-dropable. He frequently scored key goals and regularly terrorised defences as he bombed down the right hand side. However, he did seem to pick up small injuries every now and then meaning i couldnt pick him as often as i would have liked. Nonetheless, an average rating of 6.93 from 26 appearances isn't bad. He sscored 5 goals, created 3 assists and was awarded Man of tyhe Match 3 times.

Jermaine Beckford


Last years top scorer followed the same feat this season, scoring 9 goals this season. Although you may think 9 goals is quite a low amount for a clubss top scorer ( which it is!!), Jermaine had a great never say die attitude and his efforts this season didnt go unnoticed. He very often popped up with the vital goals to win the 1-0's that were essential to our overall league position. Overall, he had an average ratuing of 6.82 from 29 games, scoring 9 goals, making 4 assists and earning the Man of the Match award on 1 occasion.

Luuk de Jong


Possibly the one disapointment this season because of the amount of money spent on him ( £7 million), and not the amount of goals scored in return, however, that would be a bit harsh. He did manage to score 8 goals over the course of the premiership season, and from 30 appearances for the Foxes this season, he achieved an average rating of 6.94 . He created 6 assists and got Man of the Match once.

Matt "Captain Fantastic" Mills


For me, this guy is a legend. I love him, and the supporters love him. He is ideal to manage because he never complains, gives it his all, and in team meetings, has a skill of being able to motivate people. He was a tank at the back his season and formed a great relationship with Kris Stadsgaard From 37 matches, he achieved an average rating of 6.82, scoring 3 goals and earning Man of the Match once. Believe me though, he had a better season than the stats suggest.

John Pantsil


My one other massive dispointment of this season was the fact that this guy couldnt play more often than he did. I swear he was constantly playing for Ghana. Because of this, he only played 16 games this season, but because of his average rating of 7.04, he has to be regarded as a key player for the 2012/2013 season.

Matt Phillips


What a revelation this guy was!! The think that really excites me is that he is only about 20 years old! He was very dangerous raging down the right wing playing 25 times at an average rating of 6.95, scoring 5 goals, creating 3 assists and earning Man of the Match once. Expect great things from this boy!
