Hi to you all, after a year or so reading your story's, i decided to give it a go myself ;) My name's Rafael and i'm a 17 year old portuguese guy, and i play fm since fm10. So, its my first time writing story, and the story format will be changing (to a better one i hope :D) along the way, so be nice in the beginning xD

the team i'll be managing is athletic bilbao because that rule of only basque players just arouses me :D

i started in 11th june 2011(portugal starting time), but i'm already at 24th september. i will post the transfers i've made in the summer aswell as my tactics and such. any tips and opinions will be highly appreciated !

well, lets start this one!
Athletic Bilbao will be interesting mate. It's something different. Good luck!

Your English seems fine mate. I have never managed a La Liga team, so other people need to recommend you players. :) Can't wait for your story.
I have never done la liga in all my 10 years of cm/fm experience. As its such a attacking game with a lot of technically gifted players. I would probably get some tall defenders so you dont concede too many. But its going to be interesting. GOOD LUCK!!

So here's my summer transfers:



The tactics that I use







League standings so far and players stats






And my current calendar



while I was uploading and such, i found time to play the espanyol game. drawed 2-2, their second goal being a bucket of cold water in 90th min. darn those guys, but 27 shots against 7 of them. i told them what i think and they need to get those shots on goal (preferably inside the net xD)

yes, but as I am bilbao, I need basque players, so recommended players are welcome indeed!

thanks mate, and i hope you enjoy reading this story as i will enjoy writing it ;)
so i decided to do monthly updates instead game to game update.

next update october, coming soon :)
looking good keep it up. And i was just wondering what is basque players?
#45753 FM12HFC : looking good keep it up. And i was just wondering what is basque players?

pays basque is a region of spain. bilbao is a city of that region. bilbao only wants players that are basque. i think it is a good rule in a way but very limitated in another way. but it gives authenthecy to the club. here in portugal, the portuguese federation of football is deciding two rules for the upcoming season. 2 more clubs and they are trying to put some breaks on the number of foreigners that clubs can use. a local team of a nearby place of my house has no portuguese players in their squad. in the premier league, there are 4 or 5 portuguese players (average) and that is being very criticided. portuguese players are good and the clubs prefer foreign ones.

Injury Update

October Update




So, october was a good month for bilbao snatching 5 WINS out of 6 games. also, my chairman gave me 10million euros more for transfers for us being in a healthy financial situation.
back to the games, sevilla was the only 'tight' game we had, because the others i always had 60,65% ball and 20+ shots while the other teams their shots wouldnt reach 10.



Thats how the copa del rey looks like for now. it was the fourth eliminatory and my team did get complacent and only got a 1-0 victory. i think in my stadium thinks will be diferent and we could see lots of goals, this team being a 3rd or 4t division team. Kudos for Real Union for drawing nil-nil to a barca side :D

And my euro league group:



Remember, any questions or prints that you'd like to see, or that i'm missing to post, i'll answer/post them up. dont be shy and please say what's on your mind about this story :) Also, something that I found funny.. yes , fm sometimes is crazy like the life in mars thing.



See ya 'til the next update. Cheers :D
Go for it xD
kill granada ! :D
#45937 Dizmack : Go for it xD
kill granada ! :D

Smashed them 3-1 in their home !! was losing 1-0 by the 4th minute, and it stayed that way til half time. told him agressively to show me something different, and boy they did it! susaeta scored at 65' and iker muniain turned the tables around at 71'. Ibai gomez decided the match at 90'+3



I said to them: "NO WIN, NO DINNER!" i think they understood :P
