#42978 FM12HFC : well done in the season but im stunned how rangers beat you 7-1 and that your season finished so fast

Ha I know, the Rangers result was terrible. And I played a whole season in just a day.
My First Signing

This fantastic player looks good, and had a good record at his old club. Will he be the striker who can score me goals? I bought him for 3.4 million.

Here is Alan!

My Second Signing

Rudy.

He will be my sub CM and hopefully develop into the first team in a few seasons. One of my current CM's is 33 years of age so Rudy is one for the future.

My Third Signing

So I had two LB's in the squad but the sub LB was simply not good enough to play the odd game. So he has been sold, and I have signed this one. With loads of potentiol, but he is a bit too young, however I think he could play the odd game here and there. He cost me 2.5 million.

My Fourth Signing

I signed this very young player because I have signed him before on a different save and he turned out to be great. He is very young at the moment though.

This will probably be the final signing I make for this window. They have all been fairly cheap but I'm happy.


My Fifth Signing


So, I know I said i was not going to sign anymore players but this player got offered to me for 700k so I had to buy him. Because of the positions he can play, he will be very helpul.

Only 700k!


August Update


Koln (A) 1-0 L
Bochum (H) 4-0 W
Auerbach (A) 0-5 W (German Cup)
Hertha BSC 2-1 L


Not the best start, but looking on the positive side I got passed the 1st round of the German Cup unlike last season! Played all my new signings in that game and they all performed very well.
My European Champions Cup Group

Difficult group I have to say.


September Update


Stuttgart (H)0-0 D
Augsberg (A) 2-0 L
Real Madrid (H) 0-0 D
Hoffenheim (H) 3-0 (W)
Mainz (A) 3-2 L

My team is getting bad results but my team dominates so I thought switching to 4-2-2-2 formation might score me some goals. I made this change before the Hoffenheim game and it worked, but against Mainz it did not. Will carry on playing with this formation and see how it goes.
Lacking In Motivation

Dortmund was kinda fun, but to me they are one of them teams, that are a good side but unlikely that they will be the top. I dislike them type of teams. And now in general, I'm not that interested playing with them.

Finding a new team:

This is why I like being lower league teams because you always have a target such as, get promoted stay in that league then try to get promoted again. But for some reason I really can't be botherd to be a lower team and then to learn the team and all that.

Teams I was thinking of being:
Napoli - But they are like Dortmund, won't be the top, but they aren't bad.
Man Utd - Cause I feel like I just wanna an easy game, being the team I support it would be. But the best stories at the moment are Man Utd.
Newcastle - In general I like the team. But, what is the target?
Take a break just for a day or so?

Please recommend me a team or tell me what you think about the teams I am thinking of being.
maybe try a scottish team and see how you do?
Napoli generally sell their quality players so I wouldn't go with them. Man United are a tad easy, but great youth prospects like Phil Jones, Newcastle have a good squad but check if they've sold Cabaye or Ben Arfa, they usually leave on my saves. I am a newcastle season ticket holder in real life and they do have a good squad and some good youngsters
#43007 FM12HFC : maybe try a scottish team and see how you do?

Thanks for the Recomdation but won't it just be coming 1st or 2nd if im Rangers Or Celtic?

Thanks for giving me an overview of all the Teams, but I would start a new game rather than leaving Dortmund. Man Utd and Newcastle most interest me at the moment.

Being Man Utd, do you think it would be a problem? Because there is a lot of stories all ready on Man Utd.
And you being a Newcastle fan, what would be the main target or the future? I mean, I look at the team and it interests me for some reason, but I just can't figure out what I could do with them?

Thanks.
Try Chelsea, Valencia or maybe a nation??

With a Nation your main target would be winning a competition.
With Chelsea your main target would be winning the Champions League and avoid the sack.
With Valencia your main target would be trying to finish above Real Madrid or Barcelona then try win the league.
