#46053 Walsall_Craig : Season is going good dude! good luck for rest of season


I'm in November 2015 at the moment :)
(Messi's contract runs out in 2016 :D )

I see you rejected an offer from Leverkusen, I've rejected 2 international job offers from Mexico and Turkey

Haha good luck on trying to sign Messi dude!

Yeah in my Man Uts save im Cratia's manager and have had a few other offers too. But in this save, im on a mission so im not going to leave Sunderland!!
#46054 Geneharper : Hehe. I get a bunch of job offers. I was offered the Man Utd job in 2014 after Ferguson retired, as well as the Arsenal job in the same year. The summer before it was Man City (Mancini is now managing Spurs) and the summer of my promotion with Blackpool it was Chelsea.

If you feel like leaving Sunderland, wait until the offers from places like Inter start coming in. ;)

Nice nice. Yeah even if i got those offers i probably wouldnt accept them. Im staying with Sanderland, until they become the new Barcelona!!
#46101 nakulp : #46044 retrobeaver456 :
I've just spent the last 2 hours reading your story and it's amazing what you've done and it now makes me want to inject more youth into my newcastl team. I was also wondering if you could post conor whickhams attributes because he is 1 of my favourite young players and want to see how he's doin :)


Thanks for the comment dude :)

Youth players are definitely the way forward, though you need to strike the right balance between youth and experience.

Here is Conor Wickhams attributes..they are a little lower than i would have liked but he is still developing so im not too worried




He's not doin bad and I'm sure that with your guidence he can become an amazing player but I'd have thought his heading would be better because he's a big lad :)
#46095 nlmh : really well done on taking sunderland to the top of the league and to the knockout phase of the CL but who do you say has been your best 3 player so far this season.

Thanks dude. It would be difficult to pin down my success to only three players. It has truly been a team effort, and everyone has chipped in. My three most regular performers are:








There are some players who have been brilliant too, and have won me matches with their performances. Namely Felipe Anderson, Giuliano and Vrsaljko

The most upcoming players who i expect a lot of in the future, but dont quite make regular first team football are Iturbe, Griezmann and Digne

Upcoming Youth Stars






He's not doin bad and I'm sure that with your guidence he can become an amazing player but I'd have thought his heading would be better because he's a big lad :)

Yeah i know, im working on his heading now. I first trained up his finishing though, because it was pretty love for a striker! After that it will be his composure

Amazing! We have managed to retain the League Cup, and we have managed to prove to the world that the Black Cats are a team to be reckoned with. Im also very happy with Nistelrooy who seems to have found his range recently and is bagging some goals!

A great performance from my poacher, who did very well to bag 2 goals. The midfield was good too, and Felipe Anderson bossed the centre of the park, fully deserving his goal
Your youngsters looks pretty awesome mate, try bringing in them in matches to give them a boost that's what I'm doing currently with my City save.


Good win against Spurs aswell, dominate win :)

Cheers. Ive been playing Mirkovic since Fierro and Kadlec and Nistelrooy got injured for periods. He was ok, but he is just too young for the team. And he doesnt have the best mental stats either!
hi m8 you have a great story all the best

Have i mentioned that i hate playing against West Brom and i hate Odemwingie!!1 He always scores against us! It was a poor defensive effort today. The back four were asleep, and may as well have sent the opposition post cards telling them where they were going to pass the ball. It was pathetic!

A great win today. It means out aggregate tally was an astonishing 6-0. Never thought we would even make it this far in Europe, but we have done brilliantly. We're definitely finding it hard though with a succinct lack of strikers!

A decent win for us at home. 15 year old Mirkovic got his début for the club today. He wasnt extraordinary, but he put in a decent performance. He has a long way to go though. Hazard was brilliant as usual, running riot down the left flank
