I just finished my first full season in FM14 with Schalke. I won the Bundesliga on the final matchday because I don't think Dortmund and Bayern wanted it. It's unbelievable how many points they dropped at the end, they both drew or lost like 4 games out of their last 5. This never felt like a Championship-winning season to me and the performances of my team were often quite frustrating. My best performer was Jermaine Jones as a DM BWM with a 7.2 av. rating, the lowest I can remember in a title-winning season. Rest is mostly below 7. The Draxler-Boateng-Clemens trio behind Huntelaar was decisive, mostly through their individual class (ups and downs in this regard). My biggest issue was possession, I think I lost that stat in about every game. Still got a lot of shots on goal through their offensive impulses.
My most surprising player was Christian Clemens, he easily outperformed Sidney Sam at AMR. I sold Farfan (one of my least favorite players IRL) and bought Sam at the start of the season, but he was very disappointing. My only other transfer activity was signing Sebastian Jung for the RB position, he's ok.
Sweet, sweet Bundesliga title though, beating out my Revierderby rival.
I lost the DFB-Pokal Final vs. 2.Bundesliga side Köln. Meh.
Schalke are filthy rich and loaded with talent, Draxler being the most exciting. Of course he's already a key player. Can't wait to build this team further.
