Finally finished that term out and finished 3rd in the league and then went on a terrible run where I didn't win in seven games, got eliminated from the playoffs and Copa Libratadores, but managed to win the CONCACAF Champions League. For some reason I was allowed to play in both at the same time which led to the awesome sequence of playing in three countries over seven days (USA vs. Houston, Mexico vs. Cruz Azul, and Argentina vs. River), which just killed our conditioning, on top of that the game was like "you think that sucks? Here, have an injured center back you little shit".
I looked around in June but no good jobs were open, I added the Brazilian league but I have to wait until January for it to be active. My best defender asked to leave in January so I couldn't resign him, I gambled on a guy I got for free to replace him and it turns out he fucking SUCKS (he's so bad I subbed him off for a striker played out of position who did just as well). So that's fun. Currently 8 games into the new season and in 5th, can't do anything away from home.
I got FM15 when it was on sale and started a new game (well, originally I started with Arsenal and got the shit kicked out of me but we're not gonna talk about that) with a team called Tanjong Pagar in the S-League. It's a good thing the S-League starts in 2014 because in the real world Tanjong Pagar announced they'd be sitting out the 2015 season!
We have no transfer budget and I've successfully managed to go over the wage budget by signing an old fullback and a couple of kids (both kids managed to get injured within a week!). Here's the old guy:
He's a fullback but since this is the S-League he's playing right in the heart of my defense...with another fullback.
This is Zerka. He's basically a footballing god in this team.
And this is how we've started. Iffy. But I'm still getting the tactics together. They've said I need to finish well in the league, compete for the Singapore Cup, and that the League Cup doesn't matter. That means I'll win the League Cup and fuck up in the others.
Won the S-League and League Cup but lost in the final of the Singapore Cup badly (3-0 and never really mounted any sort of challenge). Not bad, but I'm losing Zerka because we can't afford to keep him . What a beast too, look at those stats.
The league splits for the final five rounds, that's why the standings are wonky.
Niigata Unicorn (heh!) is actually Albirex Niigata's farm team, they have some really good players.
