Finished the season and the ******* wheels fell off at the end. I had I believe four games left with a six point cushion, which seemed that I was going to take the second place. Wasn't meant to be.









Mother******* Shakhtar won the league with nine games to spare. To make matters worse I drew them in the semis of the League Cup and had to play them in back to back games. I got embarrassed.

On a lighter note I witnessed some ultras in the cup game. I'm sure they were ******* Shakhtar ultras, but I'll take what I can get.

Started season number two. Got some signings done, but since I signed many players last year and spent a record 30m, I decided to stick to only players that were upgrades only. I also sold a few, so I still have a nice chunk of transfer money in case I need it later.








Needed a GK, preferably Ukranian and he was the best one of the bunch which isn't saying much.
















Got him from Tottenham and has been playing pretty well to my surprise.















Got him on a free, which works great because he's an upgrade over another Ukranian and I didn't realize that I was running short on decent Ukranians.





















After beating some Danish team in the qualifiers I was drawn in this group:

What the **** is going on here?! I feel like FM is trolling me. I'm on a massive drawing slide, but it isn't just that. I'm hitting the post at a record rate. It's infuriating. Time to put all my attackers on a high intensity finishing training regimen!

At the winter break of year two, and doing alright considering I couldn't win a game to save my life not too long ago. I'm relatively close to the teams ahead of me, so I just need a good run and I can get my goal which is Champions League qualification.










While I was sucking in the PL, I was doing well in the EL. I qualified with two games to spare, so I played my U21 team plus some reserves. They actually didn't completely suck to my surprise.

Also got rid of some dead weight and purchased some young players which my scout considered were must buys.








Most likely overpaid for him, but he has 4.5 stars in potential, which would be a considerable upgrade from what I have if it pans out.









Another defender, a bit cheaper, but potentially much better than what I currently have.



What is the best way to bring up youngsters and get them to reach their potential or at least be serviceable?

Specialised training and tutoring, when they're ready start bleeding them in and give them spots on the bench, and starts in unimportant matches. If you can't afford to risk playing them or they're not good enough, loan them out to a club that tells you they'll be a valuable first team member (and have a look at the squad to see if they stand a chance of playing lots of matches, have your scout scout them). Make sure you've loaned them out to a club at an active league and have a scout compile match reports and check up on them every month or so. Make sure they're getting games, and if not, recall them (always make sure there's a recall clause).

I personally loan out anyone over 17.5 years old who aren't good enough to be regular bench players because when they're 18, if they're not getting games the assman will tell you their progress has stalled due to lack of match experience. So, 14-17.5, play them occasionally and specialised training, then loan them out to progressively better clubs until they're good enough to play for you.

YESSSSSSS!!!!! Finally!








I could have scored 10 goals, but I'll take it. I was literally celebrating all the goals like a weirdo. Good times.

Finished the season on a high note.







Ran the table after the winter break and beat Metalist, which were second almost all year.










My objective was to get to the Champions League this season, and I was able to do so, so I'm pretty satisfied. Next season it's dethrone Shakhtar or bust.

Finished season 3, and while it was a disappointment overall, I got a cakewalk of a Cup run until the final...















This makes my first silverware in my short FM career, so it was pretty cool.













Season 3 table:

I got a message saying Villareal's manager had been fired, so out of curiosity I decided to send my application. And this happened:







Whoops.


To make matters worse, Villareal laughed off interest from me.

Not sure if I should reload or just try to go to another club.

I'd continue to see if they actually fire you, but reload. I always save before making job comments or applying for jobs.
