Season 2, defending champs. I thought this would be a challenge.



Starting line-up in my second season:


I got rid of Jermaine Jones with a little bit of pain in my heart, he just asked for too much money and too many years on his contract for someone his age. I also got rid of Huntelaar because of his super-high contract (he earned double the amount of my second highest earner) and his back-up Szalai whom was just very bad. Hildebrand was not extended either despite his good performances, with all those GK prospects in Germany I wanted to sign someone new.

I decided to sign Bernd Leno, Tony Jantschke (back-up for Jung), Gylfi Sigurdsson, Timo Werner and Kevin Volland. Volland is a beast. Got 10 goals in his first 15 games, still only 21 years old. Timo Werner is also really good at 18 years old, currently backing-up Volland but scoring when given a chance.

After giving up on signing Ter Stegen after tough negotations with Gladbach, I signed Bernd Leno for 22.5M. IRL that would make him the third most expensive goalkeeper ever on par with De Gea and behind Buffon and Neuer. Leverkusen went on to sign the excellent Timo Horn from 2.Bundesliga side Köln for 4M. I think they were the smarter business men here...

No, it's purely a management game and it's only for PC/Mac (and some handheld consoles). The game is called Football Manager, I'm surprised you're unfamiliar with it. Look it up, watch some youtube trailers or download a demo.

In FM13 I played with Schalke and won the league my first two seasons, only to feel the wrath of Bayern in seasons 3 and 4. They won't just concede the league to you right away. Took me awhile to win the CL, but oh man it was so sweet when I finally broke through. Still remember it.

That's where he's a natural. He does it in real life too.

I wanted to play with Schalke in FM13 because of Draxler, but never got around to do it. This summer they signed Goretzka and Clemens and have Max Meyer coming through the youth ranks, so this version might even have a better start. They also have a great youth academy, I like it's their one and only philosophy to develop own youth. Despite having thrown money at other German talent already, it's a realistic goal to have a bunch of home grown key players in the squad. Great club to manage.

I do expect Bayern to come back strong, I've just gotten so used to their real life domination. So far I won all of my games versus them and Dortmund aswell (with some luck to be honest, penalties and red cards here and there), really surprised me.

I know, but I would figure he would be better equipped to play as an inside forward from there or something...

He did play some games as an inside forward, but I prefer the spacing with him and Clemens both as a winger. A huge percentage of assists come from the flanks. Draxler also scored 10+ goals in Bundesliga last season, so he still gets his opportunities in front of goal.

I'm also not a fan of Fuchs and Jung on the flanks offensively, so I prefer they leave it to Draxler and Clemens. May consider changing the tactic with world class full/wing backs.

My shameful team tried really hard to give the title away, but failed in the end because HSV drew their last game. Boo f*cking hoo. Bernd Leno is the worst goalkeeper of all time, the 1-6 loss to Hertha was mainly down to his horrific display that day. My gut feeling is that I want to sell the entire team despite winning my second consecutive title.





During this run I lost in Semi-Finals of the DFB-Pokal vs. Augsburg (0-3) and lost in the 1/8 Finals of the CL to Shakhtar (3-4 agg.).

Looks like you can't cut it without the Chelmsford Mafia backing you up.

Just get a few great starting players, to replace your weaker starters and you should be good. If your players were newcommers last years they should be more settled in also.
