I have started a new career as Swansea City on FM12 and thought I would share the journey with you.
First, lets have a look at my transfers. here they are!
Guti - Free Transfer
Craig Dawson - WBA - £1.5m
Ivan Klasnic - Bolton - £2.5m
Darnel Situ - Loan - Derby - £12k
Leroy Lita - Loan - Watford - £375k
So, here are my results in Pre-Season!
ADO Den Haag - 1-0 (A)
Linfield - 4-0 (A)
Crusaders - 3-0 (A)
AS Nancy Lorraine - 1-1 (H)
Port Talbot - 4-0 (A)
Neath - 2-2 (A)
Aris - 1-0 (H)
So a very pleasing Pre-Season! Lets hope we can keep up this form and start the new season well.
Next - Bolton (EPL)(A)
I have had a terrible, but tough start to the season so far! But before I tell you the results, I thought I would let you know that I have let youngster Rory Donnelly go out on loan for 5 months to MK Dons.
Now, my results, for August
Bolton - 0-1 (A)
Everton - 1-2 (H)
Sheffield Wednesday - 4-1 (H)
Arsenal - 0-3 (A)
What a poor start! However, you do have to admit that those matches were against some good teams, and the referee's have been all out against us! Oh well, lets hope for a better September! But, that looks tough too!
Next match - Man City (EPL)(H)
All the best, mate. Swansea is highly underrated in FM 12. You're going to have a tough time.
As a suggestion, try learning some of the BB Code to format your posts and make them more pleasing to the eye.
Okay, so a pretty poor September too. No transfer news so lets get straight to the results!
Man City - 1-1 (H)
Chelsea - 1-2 (A)
Wolves - 1-2 (A)
Fulham - 2-0 (H)
So a very frustrating start to the season with 1 win, 1 draw and 5 losses. Still, very biased referee's but what are you going to do?
Fingers crossed for a great October!
Next Match - Villa (A)
Oh my GOD!
Well, crossing your fingers worked!
I had an amazing October and won the Manager of the Month! Here's the results!
Villa - 3-0 (A)
Chelsea - 1-0 (A)
Blackburn - 3-0 (H)
Newcastle - 2-0 (H)
WOW! This stuff is made of dreams!
So I am up to 6th in the league behind Arsenal (5th), Bolton (4th), Wolves (3rd, yes, you read it right, 3rd), Man City (2nd) and Liverpool (1st)!
Next Match - Wigan (A)
So, November was a pretty average month, with 1 win, 1 loss, and one draw, and I am down to 8th.
Here are my results!
Wigan - 2-0 (A)
Liverpool - 0-1 (H)
Tottenham - 1-1 (A)
So yes, a great first few months but I have Manchester Utd next at home! However they are out of form and Sir Alex is on the verge of the sack, so I think it will be a draw!
Onwards and Upwards!
Next Match - Man Utd (H) - My prediction - 2-2
Well, well, well! What a fantastic first few months at Swansea! We're up to fourth and are pushing for 3rd in the first year in the EPL!
So, here are the results which once again, got me manager of the month again for December!
Man Utd - 2-1 (H)
West Brom - 2-0 (A)
Stoke - 1-0 (H)
Norwich - 0-1 (H)
QPR - 2-0 (A)
Sunderland - 2-1 (H)
Once again, a FANTASTIC month!
Next Match - Bolton (H) - My prediction - 3-1
So, after that AMAZING month in December, I have had quite a poor, but unbeaten month in January, so momentum will not be on my side against Man City in my next game.
Here are the results! (Wigan games are in the FA Cup)
Bolton - 2-1 (H)
Wigan - 0-0 (H)
Everton - 0-0 (A)
Wigan - 1-2 (A)
Arsenal - 2-2 (H)
So there you go! Unfortunately no signings in January, but Neil Taylor left for Wolves for £5m plus 20% of profit from the next sell on fee!
Next Match - Man City (A) - My prediction - 1-4
Well so much for good form.......
Man City - 1-6 (A)
Wolves - 0-2 (H)
Villa - 0-1 (A)
Fulham - 1-2 (H)
So no win in 8 games! Absolutely terrible start to the new year as we fall to 7th in the table heading into the Blackburn game away from home!
Fingers crossed for a few wins in March to get us pushing for the Europa League!
Next Match - Blackburn (A) - My prediction - 2-1
Great story so far! gonna be following this
Well, we are dropping down the table rapidly, and we are down to 9th. Another poor month for us with 2 losses and 2 draws! Here are my results!
Blackburn - 0-2 (A)
Chelsea - 1-4 (H)
Newcastle - 2-2 (A)
Wigan - 1-1 (H)
Now we have got to pray for a better April!
Nothing much happened this month. A few injuries, a few losses and a few wins. Heres how it went.
Liverpool - 0-3 (A)
West Brom - 1-0 (H)
Man Utd - 0-4 (A)
Stoke - 0-1 (A)
Norwich - 1-0 (A)
So we are up to 9th with 3 games left. Which are QPR (H), Tottenham (H) and Sunderland (A) who are already relegated.
Next Match - QPR (H) - My prediction - 3-1
Well, what a fantastic end to a brilliant season for The Swans! My objective was to avoid relegation, but we finished.................................. 8th!!!!!!! WOW! It has been a great journey and I will continue to share it with you next season! Thanks for the support!
I am chasing Christian Greindheim from FC Kobenhavn for £2.5m
QPR - 3-1 (H)
Tottenham - 1-0 (H)
Sunderland - 1-2 (A)
Thanks for the support guys! My next post will be after Pre-Season, whoever I am with!
Brilliant season, dude. Finishing 8th with Swansea is great. What were your tactics/formation?
2 CD, 2 WB infront of them (wings)........ 3 CM, 1 CF, 2 DLF (at sides).... if that makes sense
